He took the empty glass from her hand, set it in the sink and turned back focusing all his attention on her, standing so close she could smell the orange citrus on his breath.
Warmth swarmed her belly and crawled its way up to her face. “Uh…”
She’d only lived with her father, her husband, and a roommate in college. She’d never had sex with anyone but Steve. She didn’t want to see Eric bring home women. She shut down that thought and turned to questioning why she was considering his offer. Was she so needy that she’d accept that pushy man’s help…a man she wanted to kiss and scream at and make love to and beat up all at the same time?
As if he knew what she was thinking, he shifted and nudged his knee between her legs. His hands gripped the dark, sandy granite counter on either side of her. “I won’t bring any other women home and you won’t bring any other men home.” He slowly lowered his head, resting it on her shoulder. “Put your arms around my neck, Ava.”
His commanding tone pleaded her to hold him. She shouldn’t have obeyed him, but something so carnal and natural inside her responded to his need for her.
She curled her arms around his neck, and sighed. He smelled so good, so clean, so masculine, so safe. His smooth, bare skin shivered under her touch. She affected him like he did her.
“Take off your top, Ava. I want to feel your smooth, porcelain skin against mine.” He kissed the side of her neck. “You deserve a reward, Ava.”
She moaned as he brushed his lips along the curve of her neck. The piercings Stacy gave her throbbed for attention. “Eric. I. Can’t. D-do…” His tongue darted out as his mouth latched onto her neck. “Oh God.”
He pulled her hips up his thigh, gently rubbing against the ring in her clit through her shorts. He bit down and sucked harder on the flesh of her neck, adding just the right amount of a sweet sting with the pleasure pulsating between her legs.
Fire raged through her core, filling her sex, making her give in, submitting to him. “Oh God.” She was going to come. She was going to have her first orgasm and she wasn’t even naked. “Eric.”
He pulled her up onto the edge of the counter, sucking her neck, grinding his bulge against her, building her emerging climax ever higher.
She wrapped her legs around his hips and countered his thrusting pelvis. She was so wet and hot, so ready for him to enter her. “Eric. Oh. My. God.” She panted for more. She was going to come. It was going to better than she ever dreamed it could be and he wasn’t even inside her.
