Alex Mathews is a New York businessman who has a “work hard, play hard” mentality and considers women as a means to an end. But Libby Stewart, a beautiful hotel manager in Scotland, manages to do the impossible: steal Alex’s heart and turn his world upside down. With an ocean separating them, Alex arranges for Libby to visit him in the States for a long weekend…but things don’t go quite as planned.

Sparks fly when Alex’s old friend enters the picture and one of Alex’s business rivals shows an unsolicited interest in Libby. Tensions reach an all-time high when the four of them are thrown together during an engagement party. But it’s a series of passionate trysts and shocking betrayals that leaves Alex and Libby wondering if their love was truly meant to be.

Can they learn to trust? Or will the sea between them prove to be too much to overcome?

The second book in the Captured series, He’s Captured My Trust is a whirlwind romance—filled with jealousy and desire as two star-crossed lovers struggle to make their relationship work.

Josie's review

 

 

4.5 stars

 

 

If you read the first book than you are familiar with Alex and Libby. Alex is an American Business man who travels to Scotland for business where he meets Libby. Libby manages her family’s hotel in Scotland and is very tight with her family. Alex has to go back home to America and that means leaving Libby behind. I had the pleasure of reading book 1 and could not wait to see how the character’s story would continue. If you remember there was still an “unresolved issue” in America that caused quite a bit of controversy in the first book. So if you haven’t read the first book you need to read it before you continue on with this one.

 

 

I loved this book a lot more than the first one. There is more drama and angst but there is also a softer and kinder side to Alex. The overall plot of the story was interesting and kept hold of my emotions up until the very end. I think that is why I like this author’s writing style. The overall plot of the story slowly builds up and I really loved that about it. This book is told in Libby’s POV but we do get a prologue from Alex. I loved the prologue, we get to see where Alex’s mind and heart is at.

 

 

Alex and Libby have to face some difficulties because they do not live in the same country. A long distance relationship is hard, but they seem make things work. Libby has grown a lot in this book. She realizes that her happiness is with Alex and this time she has to put herself first instead of her family. She agrees to visit Alex in New York City to spend time with him to see if she can truly be with him and not with her family and life in Scotland. For Libby, to make this kind of decision it was not easy. As I mentioned earlier she is very close to her family so leaving them behind even for a short period of time was hard for her, but to see her determination and growth, only made me admire her character even more.

 

Alexander is hard character to read. While he was in Scotland he messed up and lied to Libby and although he only wanted a no strings relationship with her things have changed. He has a lot to make up for but he knows that he wants and needs her. While Libby is visiting him he puts a lot of effort into making time for her and showing her just how special she is to him. Knowing Libby suffered an attack from her ex-boyfriend, Alex is patience, loving, caring and makes sure she knows she is in control.

 

 

 

Now here is where the “unresolved issue” comes back to wreak havoc on Alex’ plans. Despite the fact that Alex knows this outside force is there to cause drama, he does not truly make an effort to put an end to it. I was so frustrated with him. He wanted to show Libby what she truly means to him but when things take a turn he becomes closed off and secretive.

 

 

There is a really strong connection between these characters and chemistry they have was even stronger. They have off the charts sex but for all the good Alex put in to her visit, it all comes crashing down. I had so many emotions while reading this book. I was excited, happy, angry and at times humiliated, nervous and disappointed for these characters. When a book can bring out so many emotions from me that is how I know it is worth it journey. Those feelings are what I look for in any book and this had it. We do not get a cliffhanger at the end of this book but Alex and Libby’s story is not over. I can’t wait to see where the author takes them in the next book.

 

 

 

Excerpt Logo

 

We sit in silence for a few moments, Alex tracing my scar with his fingers. He moves slowly behind me. I feel his breath against my neck. It’s a warning to all my senses to be on my guard. My body yearns for his touch. I want him. The darkness and uncertainty of the last few minutes has lifted and has been replaced with desire.

He places small kisses on my neck and slowly but gently moves down my back until he reaches the scar, where he stops and lingers. Seriously? He can’t keep overthinking this, or it will be a painful weekend for both of us. I don’t want to waste the time we have together.

“Alex.” My voice is barely a whisper.

“Yes, baby.”

“I want you now, please.”

“You have me.” He moves from behind me and pushes me down flat on the bed. He pulls my bra straps off my shoulders and throws the bra on the floor. How did I not notice him undoing the clip? He stands at the side of the bed and removes his trousers and boxers in one go.

Oh, what a sight before me.

“Libby, see what you do to me?”

My eyes slowly run the length of his body, leaving the most important part, at this moment, to savour.

“Anything I can help you with, Miss Stewart? You seem to be rather taken with a certain part of my anatomy,” he says with a devilish grin.

“Of course you can help. It’s a part of your body I want to get reacquainted with, considering how long it’s been since we were last together like this.” I reach my arms out to him and pull him toward me.

His grin is infectious. His lips find mine with passion and force. His tongue invades my mouth almost violently. I forcefully run my hands through his hair. A slight moan leaves him. His hands are all over my body, not staying in one place long, which is just as well, because I need this as quickly as he does. There will be plenty of time for deep and meaningful later. There’s no doubt in my mind what we both want in this moment.

All the frustration of our weeks apart boils away between us. We both seem to be worked up. He seems to be right where he wants to be and looks straight into my eyes for approval, which I give. My hands leave his hair and travel down his back. I move my legs, wrapping them around his waist, giving him all the invitation he needs.

5 Knocked My Socks Off Stars!!!

 Did you ever want to smack an author upside her head with her own book? Yeah well that was me when I got to the end of this one!!!

 

This is the fifth book in this series and Kay Manis did it again!!! What a fantastic story. It had me glued to my kindle from beginning to end.

 

I loved everything about this book except that it ended and I have to wait for the next book to see what is going to happen next. Author Kay Manis has a way with writing that draws you in and takes you on a ride that has you laughing one minute and your belly in knots the next. A few times I was afraid to flip to the next page because the angst was so intense.

 

This is Geneva’s story. She is the girl that I could not stand in the first few books. The author has a way with writing her characters that changed how I feel about Geneva. Geneva is in Hawaii for Dana’s wedding. She meets Berk, or as Geneva likes to call him “Poseidon”. The chemistry between them that is fantastic. There is an instant attraction between the two that felt real.

 

“Don’t look, don’t look. It’s like the sum. If you look at him, it could blind you.”

 

Berk has a dark past. After a tragic accident he escapes and goes to Hawaii to work on his family resort to try and get past all the pain from his past. He is not looking for a relationship but when Geneva shows up things start to change. I love how the author let this relationship build, and even though there was an attraction between the two, there was none of that insta-love crap. Berk had a very dominating side and I loved his dirty mouth.

 

“My chubby got fatter and pushed along the zipper of my shorts.”

 

“Come for me, Geneva,” he whispered next to my ear. This was so textbook romance novel, but oh my God, if it wasn’t working.”

 

This book just flows fantastically and will keep you hooked from start to finish. I am counting down the days for the next book because I need it like I need the air I breathe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kay Manis lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, daughter and five pound Chihuahua affectionately named “Tiny.” When not writing or researching you’ll find Kay reading a good book, eating out with friends or napping. 
 
Kay’s biggest goal in writing is to amuse, inspire and entertain. If she’s done that for you then she says she’ll always consider herself a success.

Elude by Rachel Van Dyken Trailer Reveal

 

 

 

eludeThe sixth book in the internationally bestselling Eagle Elite Series.

*Interconnected Stand Alone*

 

Twenty-Four hours before we were to be married–I offered to shoot her.

Ten hours before our wedding–I made a mockery of her dying wish.

Five hours before we were going to say our vows–I promised I’d never love her.

One hour before I said I do–I vowed I’d never shed a tear over her death.

But the minute we were pronounced man and wife–I knew.

I’d only use my gun to protect her.

I’d give my life for hers.

I’d cry.

And I would, most definitely, lose my heart, to a dying girl—a girl who by all accounts should have never been mine in the first place.

I always believed the mafia would be my end game–where I’d lose my heart, while it claimed my soul. I could have never imagined. It would be my redemption.

Or the beginning of something beautiful.

The beginning of her.

The end of us.

Excerpt

 

“Hey there,” a deep voice rumbled against my ear.
When I turned around, I was eye level with a wall of leather with white patches sewn into it. One read VICE PRESIDENT and the other, BEACH BASTARDS. The man wearing the vest had long blonde hair that draped over to one side of his head, revealing the shaved area beneath. He had a beard, not stubble, a full-on beard that was a few inches long and very well groomed. He stood well over six feet, his frame lean yet very cut and muscular. I couldn’t tell what color his eyes were because his lids hung heavy and were slightly reddened. His entire neck was covered with colorful tattoos and when he went to light a cigarette I noticed that the backs of both of his hands and were covered in ink as well.
“Hey,” I answered back, trying to assert my newly found false confidence.
He was beyond attractive. He was gorgeous. If I had to end up in someone’s bed, I imagined that being in his wouldn’t be half-bad. He sniffled, drawing attention to the light dusting of white powder trapped in his nostrils.
“They call me Bear. You belong to anyone?” he asked seductively, leaning in toward me.
“Maybe…you?” I winced at my choice of words. Of all the fucking things I could have said, THAT was what came to mind? Stupid fucking mouth. Nikki was right. I spoke first and thought second.
Bear chuckled. “I’d love that, beautiful, but I got something else in mind.”
“Oh, yeah? What would that be?” I asked, trying to keep my tone light although my mind and heart were racing.
“This party? It’s for my buddy. And he was down here for a total of thirty minutes before he hightailed it upstairs to drown himself in a bottle of Jack. He’s like a cat in a tree, can’t seem to talk him down. It’s understandable, seeing as he’s been away a while, but I figure you can help me out.”
He hooked his finger into the front of my skirt and slowly dragged me toward him until my nipples were flush up against his chest. He pressed his fingers into the skin right above my public bone and I resisted the urge to jump back by biting down on my bottom lip.
“The BBB’s have never really been his thing.” He paused when he saw the confused look on my face at his abbreviation. “Beach Bastard Bitches.” He explained. “But you? You’re new. You’re different. You’ve got this cute little innocent thing going on, but I know you’re not or you wouldn’t be at this kind of party if that was your deal. I’m thinking he’ll like you.” Bear brushed his lips against the side of my neck. “So maybe you go up there. Make him happy for me. Make little him happy by wrapping those gorgeous lips around his cock for a while. Then when you’re done, bring him back down here to civilization. And maybe later, if you’re a good girl and do what you’re told, we can go back to the clubhouse and have some real fun.” He grazed his teeth along my earlobe. “Think you can you do that for me?”
“Yeah, yeah I can do that,” I said. My skin prickling from his touch. And I could do it.
I think.
“What’s your name anyway?” Bear’s hand slowly traveled up the back of my leg, pushing up my skirt, it came to rest on my ass cheek, which was then exposed to anyone who might have been looking in our direction.
“Doe. My name is Doe,” I breathed.
“Fitting.” He said with a chuckle. “Well, my innocent looking little Doe.” Bear leaned in close and surprised me by planting a soft kiss on the corner of my mouth. His lips were soft, and he smelled like laundry detergent mixed with liquor and cigarettes. I was just beginning to think that the kiss meant that he’d changed his mind and didn’t want me to send me away to his friend, but no such luck. He pulled away abruptly and turned me around by my shoulders so that I was facing the stairs. He swatted me on my ass, propelling me forward. “Up the stairs you go, sweetheart. Last room at the end of the hallway. Be good to my boy, and me and you will get to play later.” He sealed his words with a wink and as I made my way up the stairs I turned back and flashed him a fake smile. I hoped the guy at the end of the hallway was like Bear, because then maybe it wouldn’t be so bad.
Then a thought hit me that had me fighting back the tears that sprung from my eyes with a sudden force that almost took me to my knees.
I’d officially sold myself, and the price was far more than any dollar amount.

 

 

 KING TEASER 2

 

 

Josie's review

 

5 stars

 

 

One word, King – ok my review is done, I am joking!! Holy Moly what a book I just read, I need more! I am going to try and keep out spoilers from this review because you are going to have read this book yourself to fully understand. This is a remarkable read with some remarkable main and side characters. The author really gives us these impeccable and complex characters that will have you completely engaged. Even the most dangerous people have the biggest hearts.

 

 

Doe has no memory of who and where she comes from. All she has to go on is that she was found in alley and covered in blood.   Since no one reported her missing she was sent to a foster home but she ends up on the streets. Doe has it hard on the streets, no shelter, no food, no money and no protection. She befriends Nikki and because her survival instincts outweighs her senses she agrees to do whatever she needs to attract a bikers attention at some party that is going on. What she thought she was there for quickly changes and she finds herself being held against her will by three scary and hot looking guys – King, Preppy and Bear. She finds herself attracted to King from the moment she laid eyes on him, but because she is being held her mind battles with her body. Her body wants him but her head is telling her to hate him. After time her fear dies out and she realizes she is safe and protected with King. She starts to see him differently so she lets he walls down and lets King in.

 

 

King is just out of prison. He lives a hard life, he is a criminal and he loves women (A LOT OF WOMEN) and he owns his own tattoo shop. There is nothing nice about him, but when he sets his eyes on this blonde hair doe-eyed female, something about her calls to him. King has something he is fighting for and he will stop at nothing to get it.   He takes Doe in (granted under the pretense that she owes him) but there is no denying he wants this girl. King finds out who Doe really is, but he decides he will do whatever it takes to keep her. He is not letting her go. Doe is his, she belongs to him.

 

You are going love King. I loved everything about this tough, gritty, hardened man. I loved seeing how when it came to Doe he was possessive and caring. Doe makes him a better man and makes him want better for his life.

 

 

I really loved meeting these side characters. Preppy and Bear added so much depth and insight into this story which only gave me a bigger picture on into the world these characters lived. The friendship, love and sense of family that forms with these 4 are tight, funny and natural. Even in their harden life they find happiness and meaning. King and Doe have an instant attraction to one another, but completely trusting and opening up is hard for both. Doe, not knowing her past life is afraid that when she remembers her time with King could end. King knows who she is and knows that her place is with him, but he also has demons and he needs to make something right before it is too late. There are a lot of twist and turns in this book.

MANWHORE + 1 by Katy Evans

 

 

EXCERPT

 

 

FOUR WEEKS

 

I’ve never been so hopeful as when I board the pristine glass elevator at the M4 corporate building. A handful of employees ride along with me, murmuring perfunctory greetings to each other and to me. I think my mouth must be on vacation because I can’t seem to force it to speak. But I smile in reply—my smile nervous, nervous but hopeful, definitely hopeful. My riding companions step out on their floors one by one until I’m alone, riding up to the executive floor on my own.

Toward him.

           Toward the man I love.

           My body is raging. My blood is pumping—my blood is storming—my thighs are shaking. My stomach feels filled with little earthquakes that just won’t quit, then they turn into a full-fledged roil when I hear the elevator ting at his floor.

         Stepping out, I’m in corporate nirvana, surrounded by sleek chrome and pristine glass, marble and limestone floors. But I hardly have eyes for anything except the tall and imposing frosted glass doors at the far end of the room.

         Framing those doors to each side is a pair of sleek designer desks, for a total of four.

           Behind these desks are four women in identical black-and-white suits, sitting behind their gleaming dark-oak desks, working quietly behind their flat-screen computers.

           One of them, the forty-year-old Catherine H. Ulysses—right hand of the man who owns every inch of this building—stops what she’s doing when she sees me. She arches her brow, then seems both tense and relieved as she lifts the receiver on her desk and murmurs my name into it.

  1. Am. Not. Breathing.

           But Catherine doesn’t miss a beat as she motions me toward the huge frosted doors—those intimidating doors—that lead into the lair of the most powerful man in Chicago.

           The human being with the most powerful effect on me.

           This is what I’ve been waiting for, for four weeks. This is what I wanted when I left a thousand messages on his phones and what I wanted when I wrote a thousand others that I left unsent. To see him.

           For him to want to see me.

           But as I force myself to step forward, I don’t even know if I’ll have the strength to stand before him and look him in the eye after what I did.

           I’m wracked so hard with nervousness and anticipation and hope—yes hope, small but bright, even as I shake like a leaf.

           Catherine holds the door open, and I struggle to hold my head high and walk into his office.

           Two steps inside I hear the swoosh of the glass door shutting behind me and my systems halt at the familiar sight of the most beautiful office I’ve ever been in.

           His office is all vast marble and chrome, twelve-foot ceilings, and endless floor-to-ceiling windows.

           And there he is. The center of its axis. The center of my world.

           He’s pacing by the window, speaking into a headset in a low, low voice—the kind he uses when he’s pissed. All I can make out are the words have to be dead to let her fall into his clutches …

         He hangs up, and as if he feels me in the room, he turns his head. His eyes flare when he sees me. His green eyes.

           His achingly familiar, beautiful green eyes.

           He inhales, very slowly, his chest expanding, his hands curling a little at his sides as he looks at me.

           I look back at him.

           Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint.

           I just walked into the eye of the most powerful storm of my life. No. Not a storm. A hurricane.

           Four weeks, I haven’t seen him. And he still looks exactly as I remember. Larger than life, and more irresistible than ever.

           His striking face is perfectly shaven today, and his sensual lips look so achingly full I can almost feel them against mine. Six-feet-plus of perfectly controlled male power stand before me, in a perfect black suit and a killer tie. He’s the very devil in Armani; strong-boned, square-jawed, gleaming dark hair and those penetrating eyes.

           He’s got the best eyes.

           They twinkle mercilessly when he teases me, and when he doesn’t tease me, they’re mysterious and unreadable, assessing and intelligent, keeping me guessing about his thoughts.

           But I had forgotten how cold those eyes used to be. Green arctic ice looks back at me now. Every fleck of ice in those eyes gleaming like diamond shards.

           He clenches his jaw and tosses the headset aside.

           He looks as approachable as a wall, his shoulders stretching his white shirt, which clings to his skin like a groupie. But I know he’s not a wall; I’ve never wanted to throw myself at a wall like this.

           He’s walking towards me. Every step he takes makes my heart pound as he moves with that quiet and confident own-the-world stride of his.

           He stops a few feet away and shoves his hands into his pants pockets; and he seems so big all of a sudden, and he smells so utterly good. I drop my eyes to his tie as the little candle of hope I walked in with starts to flicker with doubt.

Book Description:

 

Regret, betrayal, kidnapping, loss, madness, abuse, passion, love.

 

In this modern retelling of Hansel and Gretel, thirteen-year-old foster children Griselda and Holden escape from their abductor after three years of brutal captivity, and try to cross the Shenandoah River on foot. Tragically, one of them makes it to safety, but the other is left behind.

 

Ten years later, Griselda’s boyfriend drags her to a fight club grudge match, and her world is turned upside down when she watches Holden step into the ring.

 

Though the connection between them is fierce, bitter regret, simmering rage, and a tangle of physical and emotional scars lie between them, just as dangerous as the white water of the Shenandoah.

 

Never Let You Go is a story of fear and hope, defeat and survival, and two people—once profoundly broken—who discover that love is the only thing that can make them whole again.

Excerpt from Never Let You Go

 

This girl. Everything about this girl made him want, made him long, made him yearn to change his life, start his life, finally live his life after a decade of going through the motions. He wanted to get a better job to take care of her. He wanted to stop fighting because she disapproved of it. He wanted enough money to have every tally mark lasered from his arm. He wanted some sort of guarantee that she’d never, ever leave him again. And he wanted all of it now. Yesterday. Ten years ago, and every day since.

Standing up slowly, he let his body settle into an upright position before taking his time crossing the hall to the bathroom and then heading out into the common room.

She stood at the stove with her back to him, her feet bare, her hair in a ponytail, the mouthwatering smell of fried chicken filling the entire cabin with goodness. Holden leaned against the wall, crossing his arms over his chest, a grin taking over his face as he watched her.

“It’s just the thought of you—the very thought of you, my love,” she sang, using a fork to transfer a golden leg to a paper towel–covered plate.

As she reached forward to turn off the stove, some of the leftover grease in the frying pan spat up at her and burned her wrist.

“Ow!” she yelped. “Damn it!”

With a sudden rush of adrenaline, Holden crossed the kitchen in two strides. He turned on the faucet and grabbed her arm to thrust her wrist under the cold stream. He held it there, wincing at the red blotch developing on her white skin. When he lifted his eyes to hers, she was staring at him with a surprised, curious expression.

“It’s just a little burn.”

He shrugged, still holding her arm, staring down at the burn.

“You were asleep,” she said.

“You were singing.”

“Too loud?”

“No.”

“You remember that song?”

“I remember.”

He slid his palm down her arm to cradle her wrist from below.

“The stove’s still on,” she said.

Without dropping her hand, he took a step closer to her, reached around her waist with his free hand, and flicked the burner off.

“I made fried chicken,” she said softly, her cheeks flushed.

“I can smell it.”

“You like fried chicken. I mean . . . you must have mentioned it to me a hundred times when we were—”

“It’s still my favorite.”

They were both silent for a few seconds, and Holden knew he should drop her hand and step away from her, but he couldn’t. She’d hurt herself doing something kind for him, and it just about shredded his heart.

Just another moment, he told himself. A few more seconds touching her and then I’ll move away.

“Sorry about the singing,” she whispered, unmoving, her breath kissing his throat.

He jerked his neck to face her, his thumb curling into her palm, his eyes searching hers for mercy.

“I loved it,” he murmured.

She stepped forward, closing the distance between them, her lips parting, her breasts grazing his chest through his T-shirt as she stared up at him.

“Holden, I . . .”

Every breath she took seemed to draw him closer to her, as if she was breathing him, not air. He leaned forward, into her, his free hand reaching for hers.

“Griselda . . .”

Her eyes, dark blue and churning, flicked to his lips, lingered there, then slid back up his face and seized his.

His self-control snapped.

After all, he was only human.

Josie's review

 

 4.5 stars

 

 

 

I have never read a book from this author, and after Never Let You Go I am a fan. Never Let You GO is the modern day retelling of Hansel and Gretel. I was skeptical at first because I am not into Fairy tales but the author did an amazing job with this version. The story is written beautifully from start to finish. There was never a point in this book where I found myself bored. This book was gritty and tough at times, there are somethings that made be stomach hurt but there was also some very loveable and passionate moments. What I got from the author’s retelling of this story is that true love goes beyond and can start from the darkest of moments.


The two main characters in Never Let You Go, are Griselda and Holden. They meet in foster care and were close. These two always watched out for each other and grew a deep and strong connection.   One day at the age of 13, Griselda and Holden are abducted while walking on a country road. Not to be seen from for three long years. Holden and Griselda experience the most horrifying abuse and are locked away by a most vile and psychotic man. One day Gris and Holden gather enough strength to run away, but in order to really escape they must cross the very dangerous Shenandoah River. Just as they both are close to freedom, Holden is caught and Grisielda must run for her life and leave behind the boy that stole her heart.


Let me tell you about these very special and memorable characters. For the next ten years Griselda never gave up hope or her search to find Holden. Yes she has built a life for herself, but her mind and heart yearns for the boy that has always held her heart. Griselda is in an abusive relationship with her current boyfriend. She has guilt because she left Holden behind and believes this is the kind of relationship she deserves. It is not easy for her to move forward, her past constantly wears her down, her thoughts always go back to those days and years in captivity. Jordan forces Griselda to attend an underground fight and in a second her past comes crashing right into her, right in front of her stands Holden.


 

Holden, who goes by Seth is not whole, he is damaged, and he was told that Griselda died that day they tried to escape. He has never gotten over her death and for the nest 10 years has stood with captor moving from state to state, until his death. In order to deal with his anger, pain and aggression he turns to fighting to quiet his demons. He is alive and is finally free, he can’t love or believe he is incapable of love, and has a sexual relationship with his 6 month hook up Gemma. His demons are fierce and his dreams he always sees Gris’ eyes, he can never forget her. At his match one night, he sees a girls with the same eyes and smile but he believes

he is dreaming, until he finally sees her, his Gris.

  

“You’re alive.”

“I am”

“You finally found me.”

“I did.”

“You’re lying next to me right now.”

“Yes.”

“And this isn’t a dream.”

“No.”

“And you’ll be here when I wake up.’

“I promise,”


Let me say I am not believer in fairy tales, but there is no denying these two characters share a connection not even 10 years, current boyfriends and girlfriends and their horrific past can break. As soon as they are together, they are no longer half a person but whole. What has been wrong in their lives for 10 years is perfect, the dark is now light. 10 years is a long time to have been away from each other and they take the time to get to know each other again but that connection they shared never waivers. You will love these character because they fight for their love, and fight against their past and present demons that are hell-bent of separating them. I am not even going to go into the sex part, because lord – it was hot!!!


I am so glad I had to opportunity to read this book and got to know these characters. If you are believer in fairytales or in true love, this book is for you. If not this might just make you one.

excerpt

 

“Are you going to be a good girl?”

“Yes.”

“Do you still think I’m nice?”

She swallows and thinks about her answer for a second. “Only when you want to be.”

“Exactly. And you don’t get to decide anything. You don’t get to manipulate me. I won’t allow it, so don’t try it ever again.” I grip her ass so tight that she squirms and my fingers mark her skin red.

Her face glows as I lean in to take a whiff of her scent. Her face is much cleaner than before, and all the make-up has rinsed off. She looks pure … less tainted than hours before. Every passing second her shifting behavior affects me. Changes me. It forces me to look at her in more ways than just the one consumed by hatred.

With the water cascading down her beautiful body, puckered nipples, and pink lips, I get the sudden urge to take what belongs to me.

So, I do. I kiss her, pressing my lips softly onto hers, marking her as mine. She doesn’t fight, doesn’t even flinch as I kiss her gently, my tongue dipping out to lick her sweet, icy-cold lips. I let my tongue roam free across her mouth and push inside, forcing her to open up and let me in. She doesn’t resist; instead, her tongue finds mine, and her lips cling to me. The cold doesn’t suppress the warmth flowing to my cock, which grows thicker every second. All I can think of is kissing her, fucking her every fucking second of the day …, and then ruining her for life.

I step into the shower with her, increasing the temperature further until it’s warm enough to heat up her body. She’s still shivering, as I press her firmly into my warm body. She makes herself small to fit between my arms, as if I’m a radiator she’s cuddling up to. How cute. I just want to fuck her with my tongue.

Her taste is exhilarating, and I can’t fucking get enough of tasting her, her mouth latching onto mine with equal wantonness. Her body is quickly regaining its normal temperature, and her natural flush reappears on her face, although I’m not exactly sure if that’s because of the shower or because I’m grabbing her ass and pushing her body against mine.

The urge to turn her around and bend her over gets bigger and bigger as she pants into my mouth, desperate for air … desperate for more kisses. I let my hands roam free over her body, cupping her tit and giving it a nice squeeze. My mouth silences her first moan, as I taste her willingness to finally submit. And, oh … how I will make her submit.
