I couldn’t believe the hero did just that. It was insane. It wasn’t right. Romance badass hero always got it and they didn’t settle for less.
I groaned my frustrations but it came out sounding more like a moan as Alex had just settled himself behind me, wrapping me safely in his powerful, thickly veined arms, hard chest muscles under his soft skin brushing against my bare back halter dress. He was also nuzzling against my neck, planting light kisses under my earlobe, giving me nothing but all of his attention.
Then Alex spoke, “Baby, I get that you think I’m attractive and you’re very into me but I barely sat down for a minute and touched your neck with my mouth.” I blinked my eyes slowly to open, lifting my head from his shoulders and twisted slightly to the side to look at Alex. I loved this man. No. Scratched that. I loved this man but I especially loved it when he lowered his head to look at me with that pair of darkening eyes, the deep lines at the corner of his eyes when he grinned at me like that, making his strong jaws and cheekbones so yummy and delicious like the rest of his body and the rest of his body was more than yummy and delicious. I reeled in while Alex didn’t hesitate but continued, “I like that when I give it to you, you take it from me, you give back and you give me all back for me to take but you let go so fast and go moaning like that you are cutting me short of my fun. The fun that I enjoy, baby, I enjoy a lot, and just so you know, I like to take my time and I enjoy enjoying you slowly a lot.” Alex was now trying hard to suppress his chuckle and not burst out laughing.
I immediately shot upright from my position and stared at him with my jaws dropped. Then, I threw my hands in a princess fit and exclaimed, “I did not!”
“Baby, you did.” Alex replied.
“I did not!” I shouted a little louder.
“Baby, you did.” Alex repeated, a naughty twinkle in his eyes.
I gave up, and shoved him in the shoulders. With that, Alex threw his head back and burst out laughing. When he did that, I lost a moment to his neck and the hard lines on his shoulders and forgot whatever that I wanted to say. I wanted to run my tongue along the taut muscles valleys to taste him but that would result in me really moaning again. When he caught my lusty looks, his arms tightened around me, crushed my back to his front even more and my body went shaking along with his.
I was now pouting and looking at him not knowing what else to say since it felt nice with his warm, hard body behind me. A few moments passed and Alex spoke again, “Babe, everyone heard you. You moaned and you did it loudly, here, in this room.” He waved his finger around in the air.
I flustered and took a quick glance around the room in the directions of my friends, some nodding, some trying to hide their mirth, but all looking at me. They definitely heard me, loud and clear. This was embarrassing and I had nowhere to hide, except now Alex decided to stroke his own ego further and had my cheeks blushed its most crimson color. I didn’t have time to retort because Alex cupped my jaws in his big, strong hand, turned my head further to his side and crashed down hard on my lips. I was caught by surprise but quickly melted under his tender, soft lips, his tongue making masterful and vigorous work in my mouth very, very thoroughly. Yes, definitely very, very thoroughly for God knew how long because I whimpered a soft moan in the back of my throat. I could not believe myself. Alex had me played and I had allowed him to play me again, although this was all Alex and it was unbelievably nice.
Alex broke the kissed and grinned at me, shaking his head lightly, enjoying our not so private moment and the moan I just gave to him proving him right about everything he knew about me.
I went back to full pout and quickly readjusted myself between his legs to continue reading my book. The heat from his kiss lingered on my lips and in all the other right places. I tried to concentrate reading but couldn’t.
Alex stroked my arms softly, and spoke again, “You wanna go somewhere else?”
I bit my lips, hell yes, I did want to go somewhere else with Alex, wherever that somewhere might be. But stubbornly, I did not want to give him that so I shook my head and did not answer.
“Yeah, I’d thought so,” Alex replied, proving he got me, he really really got me, “I like that I’m sitting here on this bean bag, having a nice, quiet time with you, and you relaxing in my arms between my legs, taking in peace and giving it right back to me. But baby, you gotta know you make another sound like that I can’t promise you that I won’t you carry you to somewhere else right away, and at this hour the somewhere else I’d like you to be is with me on the boat, both our butts naked basking under the sun.”
I chewed my lips lightly, conjuring dirty images the words Alex threw me to contemplate and turned to look at him. Alex licked his lips, watching me with even darker intensity now that he saw what was behind my eyes. Then, he tempted me further by adding, “You don’t like your fair butt cheeks rosy except by means through my twitching palms when you are naughty, I’d do my best to cover them with mine while we are on the deck.”
Oh, I liked that very much. But we were surrounded by people so I bugged my eyes out at him and yelled, “Alex!”
I was fully aware of all the pairs of eyes returning back to me but couldn’t do anything about it. Alex just buried his face in my neck and chuckled, leaving me nowhere else to hide.
Pat decidedly to be nice for once, broke my bashfulness and said, “Wow, no wonder you are always too busy for our girlie nights and even when you are out with us, you barely can hold yourself together and be with us.” I threw her an annoying look although I know what she said was true. She continued, “You are always in your dirty little thoughts because you are always in your dirty little world, seeing that you’ve got yourself a man with no words other than dirty, dirty words for you.”
This was not true. But she was also not wrong. Alex liked to tease me with all the dirty words but she had no idea how much more those dirty, dirty words could be from Alex, especially and since they were from Alex.
Of course, Alex took no offense to her comment by giving me a little squeezed with his muscular thighs to let me know this. He lifted his head from my neck, and kissed me lightly on my hair. I sighed, resigned that this was how Alex always liked to tease me in front of people whenever life seemed to slow down and weaved around mindless routines that we so much desired when life always spun us in whirlpools and annihilate our peaceful lives.
I relaxed in his arms and whispered, “You are lucky that I love you, you know that?”
“Yeah,” Alex said to the top of my head and cradled me again, “You know I love you too.”
