It started out like any other morning on the train.
Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle.
He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world.
Who did the stuck-up suit think he wasÔÇªGod?
Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it.
When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. ┬áSo suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out.
I might have picked it up.
I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers.
I might have held onto the mystery manÔÇÖs phone for daysÔÇöuntil I finally conjured up the courage to return it.
When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me.
So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerkÔÇÖs office.
I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though.
I didnÔÇÖt expect him to text back.
I didnÔÇÖt expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.
I didnÔÇÖt expect to fall for himÔÇöall before we even met.
The two of us couldnÔÇÖt have been any more different.
Yet, you know what they say about opposites.
When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attractÔÇöwe consumed each other.
Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasnÔÇÖt prepared for where IÔÇÖd wind up when the ride was over.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.
IÔÇÖm not even sure how to start this review off besides a well-placed ÔÇ£HOLY SHIT, THAT WAS AWESOMEÔÇØ.┬á Okay, now that I have that out of the way, I have to gush about the amazing way Penelope and Vi wove this story together.┬á It was so seamlessly written you would never know two authors wrote the story.┬á But, I think having these two powerhouse writers could only possibly produce an amazing story.
Let me pontificate as to why I think this story is so amazing.┬á Graham Morgan.┬á Yes, heÔÇÖs hot, rich, and well-endowed, but thatÔÇÖs not what makes him amazing.┬á ItÔÇÖs his paradoxical layers, depth of personality, and ability to love hard.┬á Now letÔÇÖs add in his sense of humor and loyalty.┬á He was nothing remotely akin to what I expected. I was more than thrilled to get to know him and his deeply developed and evolved character.┬á These ladies wrote such an amazing man thereÔÇÖs no way you canÔÇÖt fall for himÔÇªall sides of him.
Soraya was an amazingly fresh departure from many of the women IÔÇÖve read recently.┬á SheÔÇÖs self-assured.┬á SheÔÇÖs intelligently snarky.┬á Physically sheÔÇÖs more a girl next door with her fun quirky habits (hello rainbow hair).┬á What makes her phenomenal is her confidence; she exudes in her choice of clothing, her words, how she is not rushing to spread her legs for just a pretty face.
There are so many twists and turns in this story ÔÇô I loved the literary roller coaster ride.┬á I really love that when I picked up this book, I couldnÔÇÖt guess the entire plot within the first few pages.┬á ItÔÇÖs a good read, the writing is solid, and the story flows well.┬á These ladies pair so well together and I can only imagine how wonderful future collaborations will be!┬á Well done!
Outside of the restaurant, GrahamÔÇÖs black car was already curbside. ┬áHe must have had it waiting and called the driver when I went to the restroom.
ÔÇ£If youÔÇÖre not going to come home with me, I insist on at least giving you a ride home to your place.ÔÇØ
ÔÇ£The subway is right around the corner. ┬áIÔÇÖm good.ÔÇØ
He shot me an annoyed glance. ┬áÔÇ£Give a little, Soraya. ┬áItÔÇÖs a ride home, not a ride on my cock. ┬áAnd I think you know by now that IÔÇÖm not a serial killer.ÔÇØ
ÔÇ£YouÔÇÖre so crass.ÔÇØ
He put his hand on the small of my back and steered me to the waiting open car door. ┬áI didnÔÇÖt put up a fight. ┬áGraham was right, I was being stubborn while he had pretty much agreed to anything I demanded. ┬áSomething told me it was a rare occasion when the man was this flexible. ┬á
When we arrived at my apartment, Graham walked me to the door. ┬á
ÔÇ£When will I see you again?ÔÇØ
ÔÇ£Well, tomorrow is Saturday, so I suppose maybe Monday on the train.ÔÇØ
ÔÇ£Have dinner with me again tomorrow?ÔÇØ
ÔÇ£I have plans.ÔÇØ
His jaw flexed. ┬áÔÇ£With whom?ÔÇØ
We embarked into a lengthy stare off. ┬áHis gaze was hard. ┬áWhen neither of us gave for a few minutes, he grumbled Christ under his breath, and before I realized what was happening, my back was against the door, and his mouth was on mine.
He kissed me as if he wanted to eat me alive. ┬áBefore releasing my mouth, he took my lower lip between his teeth and tugged. ┬áHard. ┬áWith his lips vibrating up against mine, he spoke. ┬áÔÇ£DonÔÇÖt push me to my limit, Soraya.ÔÇØ
ÔÇ£Why? ┬áWhat will happen?ÔÇØ
ÔÇ£IÔÇÖll push back. ┬áAnd IÔÇÖm trying not to do that with you.ÔÇØ
He was being honest, and I realized I should appreciate that. ┬áÔÇ£To my sisterÔÇÖs house. ┬áItÔÇÖs my nieceÔÇÖs birthday party. ┬áThatÔÇÖs where IÔÇÖm going tomorrow night.
He nodded. ┬áÔÇ£Thank you.ÔÇØ
It took every bit of my willpower to go inside and shut the door behind me. ┬áI leaned my back against the door, unable to remember the last time I was so hot and bothered. ┬áMaybe not ever. ┬áHis mouth was sinful; the thought of what he could do with that wicked tongue other places on my body kept me in a state of arousal that bordered on frenzied. ┬áBut it was more than that. ┬áThe way he was so dominating and controlling, yet exercised restraint to respect my wishes, was the sexiest thing IÔÇÖd ever seen. ┬áThe man stimulated something that had been sleeping inside of me. ┬áI needed a glass of wine and an orgasm. ┬áNot necessarily in that order. ┬áIf I was going be firm on my stance that we get to know each other and not have sex, then taking things into my own hands was absolutely essential.
In my bedroom, I stripped out of my clothes. ┬áI didnÔÇÖt sleep naked every night, but tonight was definitely a bare evening. ┬áAs I slipped into bed, my cell rang. ┬á
ÔÇ£Is phone sex on the table?ÔÇØ ┬áGrahamÔÇÖs voice was a needy rasp. ┬áWhatever cooling off my body had done since I left him on the other side of the door was instantly reheated. ┬áHis voice could definitely speed things up for me. ┬áButÔÇª
ÔÇ£Sex is off the table. ┬áThat should probably include all types of sex. ┬áIntercourse, oral, phone.ÔÇØ
He groaned. ┬áÔÇ£Oral. ┬áGod, I want to taste you. ┬áAnd feel that metal tongue ring on my cock. ┬áYou have no idea how difficult it was to control myself tonight every time I caught a glimpse of that metal when you spoke. ┬áItÔÇÖs like youÔÇÖre taunting me with every word. ┬áWhat are you wearing, Soraya?ÔÇØ
That voice. ┬áI needed to record him saying What are you wearing, Soraya? ┬áSo I could play it over and over again in a loop when I needed to satisfy my own needs. ┬áÔÇ£IÔÇÖm actually not wearing anything. ┬áI just got undressed and slipped into bed.ÔÇØ
ÔÇ£You sleep naked?ÔÇØ
He actually growled. ┬áÔÇ£Touch yourself.ÔÇØ
ÔÇ£I plan to. ┬áBut I think IÔÇÖm going to need both hands tonight. ┬áSo IÔÇÖm going to hang up first.ÔÇØ
ÔÇ£How long do you plan on driving me crazy, Soraya?ÔÇØ
ÔÇ£Good night, Graham.ÔÇØ ┬áI hung up without waiting for him to respond. ┬áEven though my body physically ached for the man, I wasnÔÇÖt ready to open that door with him just yet. ┬áAlthough as I glided my hand down my body alone in my bed, the only thing I could think of was God, I wish it was his hand.
