Hero: High risk rescuer, Devon LeBlanc. He enjoys dangerous mountain climbs, water rescues, and doing naughty things in pools.
Heroine: Alisha. Also a rescuer. She enjoys showing the boys just how tough she is.
“I promise I don’t consider you a toy, but I do want to play with you.”
Her eyes widened, and that pink tongue of hers snuck over her bottom lip.
He stood on the bench of the hot tub, not hiding his hard-on as he paced the perimeter toward her. “I want kisses, and tastes of your skin. I want to touch you everywhere and learn what kind of noises you make when you’re trembling on the edge of orgasm.”
“Devon . . .”
“I want to fool around with you for hours until we’re both so tired we pass out, just so we can wake up and do it all over again.”
The passion in her eyes—the astonishment and longing— increased as he drew closer. His cock was rock hard, tight to his body with the wet fabric of his shorts barely confining him.
He stepped to her side and slipped his hands along her thighs, loving the catch in her breathing as he made contact. Driven on by the flutter of her heart rate at the pulse of her throat, he eased her thighs apart, stepping between them as he lowered himself into the water again so their eyes were level.
Her breathing picked up. His was none too steady, either. His hands were still on her thighs, so he skimmed them ever so slowly upward. Closer to her sex. Palms cupping the top of her limbs, thumbs dragging on the inside of her soft, smooth skin.
“I want to slip my tongue into you and eat you out until you’re squirming. I want to lick your cream from my fingers after I’ve brought you to orgasm. Then I’ll drive my cock into you until you scream with pleasure.”
He’d lowered his voice, barely audible over the everyday pool noises. But she’d heard. She heard every word.
Her bottom lip quivered, moisture shining on it where she’d given in and nervously licked a second ago. She stared at his mouth as if she were starving.
He was. For more of her.
“Yes, Alisha? Do we give in to the heat and make both of us far happier than we’ve been? Or we can go back to being frustrated. You using whatever vibrators you’ve got shoved in your side table, and me fucking my fist, wishing I were pumping into you instead.”
“God, Devon.” Breathless. A mere whisper.
He inched his hands higher, fingertips brushing the edge of her swimsuit, thumbs hovering closer to where he needed to be.
She clasped his wrists, her strong climber’s fingers squeezing tight enough to make him pause.
Devon didn’t give up. “You tell me. You decide. I want you so fucking bad, but I want you to want me as—”
She let go of his left wrist and caressed his cheek, jerking his words to a stop. He was the one who gasped when she shifted their connected hands and brought his fingers over her sex. The dark circles of her pupils were so wide they nearly eclipsed the greyish blue of her irises. They stared into each other’s eyes as he enjoyed the passion dancing over her face.
Alisha leaned forward, and their lips were together again.
Holy shit, yes.
High Passion by Vivian Arend.
I enjoyed this one a lot. Nice mix of erotic romance and adventure and action.
