It’s that time again, and I’ve come to share with you the quotes this week that made me swoon and swoosh! This week’s read was the sexy military collab romp, Off Base, by Tessa Bailey and Sophie Jordan.
Kenna and Beck
By Tessa Bailey
When Kenna Sutton is tasked with driving home newly returned Beck “True Blue” Collier, she expects the strategic Army mastermind to be a pasty number cruncher. Never at a loss for words, Kenna is nonetheless rendered speechless by the gorgeous, inexperienced and tightly-wound Army major that lands in her passenger seat. Outraged by Beck’s lack of a welcome home after seven long years overseas, Kenna takes matters into her own hands, giving Beck something he’s only ever fantasized about in his bunk…
Huntley and Cullen
By Sophie Jordan
Huntley Collier, an emergency room nurse and all-around do-gooder, is tired of living in the friend zone. Cullen Brooks was given the job of babysitting Huntley when her brother – his best friend – deployed. But their friendly coffeehouse hangouts and TV marathons leave her wanting more. When one crazy night leads to too many drinks and an explosion of long-denied lust, Huntley’s dreams become a reality. And reality is one hot, wild place she never wants to leave. But only a good girl can bring down a bad boy…
Things that make you go *sigh*
“W-what?” Her voice trembled from her lips, but it was nothing compared to the way her heart shuddered inside her chest.
“I need you to stay. To live here. With me.” His fingers tightened over hers. “I need you to love me back.”
Her heart overflowed at those words. “Cullen,” she choked. “You love me?”
“I love you. I always have. I just didn’t know. You’re in my blood, Huntley. If you go, I’m lost.”
She nodded jerkily, blinking, trying not to cry. “I’m not going anywhere. I never intended to. This is my home.”
Relief flashed across his face. “Well, that’s good to know.”
“As far as loving you,” she continued. “I do. I have. For a long time.”
He brought his other hand up, framing her face in both hands. “So. Are you moving into my place, or am I moving into yours?” She laughed. “Isn’t that a little sudden? A little bit—”
“Sweetheart, we’ve been dating for years. We just didn’t realize it.” He smiled, but his eyes drilled into her—intense, solemn. “And I don’t want to spend another night without you.”
Things that make you go *yummmmmmm*
She looked up at him under heavy eyelids. “You’re going to make some woman very happy with this.” Her pink tongue skated over the tip, and his hips jerked wildly on the bed.
“Darlin’. Darlin’, please… I’m hurting. I’m hurting all over.” Jesus, he’d never called anyone darlin’ in his life and who the hell cared? He reached down and wound a fist in her hair because he couldn’t not use her as an anchor. “Is this okay?”
“Hold on tight,” she whispered, before sucking half of his erection into her mouth. Beck shouted the vilest of curses at the ceiling. Swore his life was coming to an end. Every ounce of feeling in his body raced to his already sensitive cock, swelling it inside the sweet heat of her mouth. That mouth, that mouth that was designed for sinning, hummed around him as it worked, the vibrations hitting his balls like lightning strikes. Savoring noises that polarized and woke a beast inside of him at the same time. His survival was in Kenna’s control, and he gave it over without a moment’s hesitation, trusting her to end the torment. In that moment, she was everything. His sin, his salvation, his caretaker. All of it…
She’d never been taken from behind like this, and the position pushed down on her sweet spot. OhGodOhGod! His every thrust stroked along that bundle of nerves and she shuddered, shattering under him. Her muscles turned to jelly and her body went limp, giving out under him, but he wasn’t having it. His grip on her hips tightened and he hauled her back up, holding her for his hammering cock. One of his hands skated up the slope of her back and curled around her shoulder, anchoring her for him as he fucked her hard. He was a beast. It felt desperate and primal. And she loved it. She was so wet she could hear the slick glide of him working in and out of her. A second orgasm swelled before the tremors from her first had even subsided…
She wondered, if she would ever tire of this.
HELL NO YOU WON’T EVER TIRE OF IT! AND NEITHER WILL WE!!*clutched pearls*
