He’s preparing to feast, she thought. Why was that so fucking exciting? She liked him predatory, she registered with a bolt. She wanted him hungry for her, wanted to get stalked and taken down and devoured.
Hero: Mica. Temporarily in Pittsburgh to live with his best friend for the summer. Bisexual. Has some done naughty things with this best friend (who identifies as straight). Meets a beautiful woman at the coffee shop where he works and agrees to let her photograph him.
Hero: Vaughn. Loves women and is confused that he let his best friend fool around with him when they used to go camping. Gets invited into the bedroom with Mica and Clare…and can’t resist.
Clare: Photographer, looking for subject to shoot. Meets Mica who she finds absolutely gorgeous – photographs him, but then it leads to more. Mica wants to invite Vaughn into their bedroom, and Clare happily agrees. While Mica is bossy and passionate in bed, Vaughn is shy and more hesitant. Clare loves the combination.
His kisses had never failed to thrill her, but tonight was something else. There was a current running through him, a contagious intensity, blindingly bright. Because of Vaughn. Maybe he liked to be watched. Or to watch, himself. Maybe he liked to share. Maybe the two men had even done this before, she realized, shocked by the possibility. Whatever the case, she welcomed his kinkiness. She’d liked it the first time they’d hooked up. Her own kinks were so subtle, so French vanilla—the occasional feel of a man’s strong hand around her wrist, a bossy voice, a punishing set of hips. But sampling Mica’s racier proclivities was exciting. She liked what his brazen desires did to him, the way they’d made his eyes wild and the sex rough, last time. She wondered what having Vaughn here would do to him. Make him straight-up crazed, maybe. A girl could hope.
As they kissed, he brought his center to hers, stroking his erection between her legs with long, slow rolls of those talented hips. She opened wider, inviting it all, and reached low to palm his ass, massage the muscle there. The touch spurred him, speeding his movements and drawing a faint growl from his throat.
“I feel good to you?” he asked.
“Amazing.” Hard and long, even blunted by his jeans.
He turned to look to Vaughn. “You’re real big, aren’t you?”
Vaughn didn’t reply, his mouth open and his eyes glassy. His palm cupped his fly. Clare swore she could feel his heartbeat, feel that pulsing as surely as he did in his own hand right now. How do you know? she wondered, thinking of Mica’s words. How do you know he’s big? Have you two done this before? Or had they merely seen each other naked while off on their summer climbing trips?
“Bet you’d like to see him,” Mica said, smiling down at Clare, then kissed her. “Find out if he’s bigger than me.”
“Maybe he can take you even deeper,” he breathed, and nipped at her lip. “But I’ll take you first.”
“Whatever you say.”
He pushed up, letting her see his grin as it spread across his beautiful face. “Good answer.” She drew her hand up his long back, bringing the hem of his shirt with them. He stilled, sat up, and stripped it away for her, glorious in the glow of the reading lamp. He seemed to bask in her attention just as she basked in the spectacle of his body, unashamedly hungry for her eyes.
“Have you missed my mouth?” he asked.
She nodded against the pillow, hair mussing. “I have.”
He dropped to his elbows, bringing his face close so their noses touched and she could all but taste the wine on his lips as he spoke. “My tongue?”
“Shall I show him?”
She swallowed. “Yeah. Show him.” She wanted his mouth, yes, but she wanted to see Vaughn, too. Wanted to watch his face, hoping to find lust there. Wanted to see where his eyes would go. Wanted to know if he’d join them—if he’d kiss her, or speak, or strip, or touch himself. If he’d ask for a turn, perhaps, and let her feel those soft lips on her most intimate skin.
I really enjoyed this M/M/F menage story. Time is taken to allow the reader to really get to know each character – I adored Clare. Erotic and so, so sexy – with a very believable HEA. Highly recommend this one. I’ll be reviewing when it releases on Tuesday.
