Hero: Charlie Burns. A legacy police recruit. His no strings affair just dumped him and he’s not going away without a fight.
Heroine: Ever Carmicheal. Taught at an early age never to believe men and to let them go after 30 days. Only this time, the one she tells to go is the one she really wants to stay.
In this scene, our hero and heroine indulge in some role play foreplay.
“NYPD. Open up.”
“Oh. Is something wrong officer?”
“As a matter of fact, there is.” I tug my ever-present notebook and pen out of my back pocket, pretending to consult the first page. which sucks. since it means taking my eyes off her for a second. “We’ve gotten several complaints about the smell of chocolate coming from this apartment. You know anything about that?”
Without missing a beat, Ever bites her lip and throws a guilty look over her shoulder. “Maybe. Maybe not. What’s it going to take to make this go away?”
I let my gaze wander down to where her thigh peeks through the sliver of light and feel my dick protest this delay I’ve created. I wish I hadn’t played this game, because I’m impatient for the door to open so I can get two handfuls of her ass. Short skirts. Does the girl own anything else? Forget I questioned that. What was I thinking starting this game of role-play when I’m short on time? Ever knows I’m jonesing too because she’s trying not to laugh at me.
Oh yeah, cutie? Two can play at that game.
I prop an arm against the door jam and lean forward, close enough to hear her breath go shallow through the crack. “What’s it going to take?” I drop my eyes to her exposed stomach where a rhinestone sparkles from its place of honor in her belly button. “We can start with a thorough inspection of the premises.”
“Yeah?” She kind of breathes the word. “And if I don’t cooperate?”
Pretty sure I’m dying. Or I’m already dead. “Then I’m afraid I’ll have to use excessive force.”
Oh, she loves hearing me say that. Did I fail to mention that Ever likes it rough? She does. She likes it down and dirty. Sweating, swearing, filthy -talking, come-to-Jesus sex that leaves nail marks on my back.
“I’ll have to admit…I’m feeling a little uncooperative right now, Officer.”
