Happy Hump day to all my randy readers! Today’s lovey/lusty offerings are once again from Annika Martin, because- smexy! After reading and raving over Martin’s Billionaire’s Wake-Up Call Girl, I received a rec to check out the preceding novel, Most Eligible Billionaire and I’m soo glad I did.
I’m Vicky, the dog whisperer. (Not really, but that’s what my elderly neighbor always says.) When she dies, she surprises everybody by leaving a corporation worth billions to her dog, Smuckers. With me as his spokesperson.
Suddenly I go from running my Etsy store to sitting in an elegant Wall Street boardroom with Smuckers in my lap. And my neighbor’s son, Henry Locke, aka New York’s most eligible bachelor, glaring across the table at me.
Rumor has it Henry’s a business genius who’s as talented in the bedroom as he is in the boardroom. Sure, he’s gorgeous. Sex-in-a-seven-thousand dollar suit. But… No way will his wicked smile be charming ME out of my panties.
His wicked…devastating…impossible-to-resist smile.
Oh well, who needs panties anyway?
First they lust…
Heat rushes through me as I palm his bulge, as I suck his fingers, as I run my tongue over them. He slides them in and out, watching me. “This is how you’re going to suck my cock when the time comes. Except you’re going to squeeze the root and give me a little teeth on the bottom. Try it.”
It’s so Henry to give me a tutorial on sucking his cock. I wrap my hand around his fingers and give him a little graze with my bottom teeth.
“Fuck yeah. Perfect.”
He pulls out his fingers and anoints my nipples. They pebble in the cool breeze coming off the water.
“Fuuuck,” he groans. “What have you been hiding under these librarian skirts?”
“Not books,” I say. His fingertips brush my sensitive clit, sending a jolt of pleasure through me, making me gasp. A dimple appears on his cheek and I kiss it. It goes away, but then it appears again and I kiss it.
…Suddenly I feel bare to him. Not just physically, but soul-deep bare. As if his fingers are everywhere inside me.
“Yeah.” He slips rough, thick fingers deeper between the folds of my sex. My head tips backwards onto the hard pillar, eyes drifting closed.
“Oh, yeah,” I say as he slides them against my clit with the perfect motion. He changes his angle, and this new sensation swirls through me, making me senseless and lightheaded.
“Do the nipple pluck thing,” I whisper. He breathes out a shaky fuuuuck.
“You are so fucking everything.” He does the nipple pluck thing and I cry out. It’s rougher than I expected. Hotter than I expected. He exhales a shaky breath and kisses my cheek and then my ear. His teeth graze my earlobe, sending wicked lightning all through me. He plucks my nipple again, softer this time. It’s like he’s learning me. Exposing my secrets. Stripping me bare for the first time. His fingers send rippling heat up through my core. His strokes go long and strong. He slides two fingers in. I suck in a short, sharp breath.
“I gotcha, baby.” I crash over the edge. White-hot pleasure. Naked and alive.

Then they love…
His gaze sears my heart. How many he carved isn’t the question, and he knows it. I can barely think. This is everything I didn’t dare want.
“It feels like too much to believe,” I say finally.
“I know. I get it. You’ve been burned.” He takes my hand like my hand belongs to him. He knits his fingers between mine, warm and soft. “I burned you when I didn’t tell you everything,” he says. “I should’ve, and I didn’t. I could stand here and give you excuses, but I won’t. I just need you. Give us a chance.”
His hand tightens, just a bit, like if he doesn’t hold me tightly, I might get away. “Let me love you enough for both of us.”
“I love you.” His words are calm and sure. “That’s real. Everything was wrong, but that part’s real. It always will be.”
Instinctively I’m looking for the trick, the lie. But all I see is love, the vulnerability of Henry’s love.
