PG-13 Excerpt

"'Zoey.' He growled her name, unable to control the hunger that had been building in intensity over the years any longer. She was still looking up at him when he closed the gap between them. 'I'm not sure I can stay away from you much longer.'

"Aside from the wind rustling the branches of the trees that they were hidden behind, and a couple of birds braving the humid Texas heat, the only other sound was Zoey's sharp intake of breath. Looking down at her, he could see the rise and fall of her breasts with every ragged breath, and that was all the assurance he needed.

"Cupping her jaw, trying to keep his hands from groping every luscious curve of her body, he bent his head until his lips hovered just above hers. Before he could get closer, she took the decision away from him when she pushed up on her toes and planted her warm lips on his.

"The kiss started out gentle, just her mouth pressed to his, but the sweet scent of her hair sent a rush of adrenaline flooding his system and he was past the point of no return. Pulling her flush against him, Kaleb kept his hands on her face, not willing to push her too far too fast, but Lord have mercy, he had to taste more of her.

"Thrusting his tongue between her lips, he locked his knees to keep him from falling over as soon as her tongue surged forward to meet his. Then the world tilted, exploded, and the only thing remaining was the feel of Zoey's delicious taste overwhelming his senses.

"He growled when she whimpered, pressing her tight little body against his, grinding her hips into his, her fingers slipping into his hair, pulling him closer until he knew that at any moment he was going to take it too far. The image of being buried inside of her, both of them naked and sweating, flashed through his brain, and his dick throbbed behind the irritating zipper of his jeans.

"The only thing that slowed them down was their need for oxygen, and when their lips parted, he pushed his forehead to hers, but didn't let her go.

"'It seems like I've waited my whole life for you to do that,' Zoey whispered."

"He lifted his hips, assisting by pushing the denim down, allowing his steel-hard shaft to spring free, begging for her glossy lips to put him out of his misery.

"Kaleb was mesmerized by the sight of Zoey on her knees between his thighs, her small hand wrapped around his cock, slowly stroking as she licked her lips.

"'Put your mouth on me, baby,' he groaned, his words coming out roughly.

"When she sucked in a breath, he met her eyes, waiting to see whether she would run or if she would give in to the firestorm licking at them, ready to consume them in its fury.

"'F*ck!' Kaleb damn near screamed the word when her warm tongue met the engorged head of his dick. He wasn't going to last, there was no way in hell he could hold back once she . . .

"Holy f*cking sh*t.

"Kaleb gripped the cushions of the couch, holding himself back from gripping her head in his hands and thrusting hard and fast into the fiercely hot cavern of her mouth.

"Throwing his head back, Kaleb closed his eyes, letting the moist heat lick at him, his balls drawing painfully tight against his body.

"'Zoey. Baby. F*ck. It's too f*cking good. Just like that.' He was rambling, his brain overloaded with the pleasure of having her mouth wrapped around his cock, the heat encompassing him, robbing him entirely of all common sense, all good intention. There was nothing except the feel of Zoey's lips wrapped around the swollen head, her wicked tongue licking him, his cock threatening to explode.

"When he went to move his hands, wanting to pull her closer, to control her movements, to push farther, deeper, faster, Zoey slowed, clasping her hands around his wrists, then holding them to the couch. He pulled his head forward, looking down at her and he saw stars. Watching as she bathed his cock with her little pink tongue was nearly his undoing.

"She let the head of his cock slide from her mouth. 'No hands,' she said, a warning of her own. 'I want to taste you.'

How could he argue with that?"
