“It’s hard not to be jumpy around you when you keep getting under my clothes somehow,” Ivy said with asperity.
“Don’t worry. Nothing on the agenda tonight except a backrub,” Joe assured her. He said it mostly to allay her fears — he usually said that kind of thing to a woman just before he pounced — but he realized that he meant it. He needed to move slowly with a woman like Ivy, his instinct told him. He needed to test the waters, letting her get accustomed to what was between them. Tonight, he wanted to break down a few more barriers between them.
