Happy Holiday Hump Day! This weeks feature is a dynamite novella from an author who writes complicated, deeply authentic, romantic tales sooo good. Kennedy Ryan is the realest deal and as a sweet holiday treat, she’s released a new novella in her best selling Hoops series, Hoops Holiday.
I devoured this delicious little story full of yuletide yearning and Christmas charm! The novels in the Hoops series are heart evicerators (is that a word?-is now- they obliterate all feels, shatter you and put you back together and linger in your life blood. If you haven’t had the opportunity, books, one and two,
Long Shot and Block Shot are both stellar and stand alone so you can read in either order.
You want. Ohhhh you want!
MacKenzie Decker was a question Avery never got to ask, much less answer.
They met when she was a young reporter fueled by ambition, and the ink on Deck’s first NBA contract was barely dry. Years later, they’ve climbed so high and lost so much, but one thing hasn’t changed. The attraction that simmered between them in a locker room before is still there. With success like theirs, everything has been possible . . . except them.
That was then.
But what about now?
Who would have thought that first night in the locker room all those years ago, that we’d end up like this? We spend the rest of the night feeding each other from room service trays, bathing together, making love, making plans, making promises. Sharing hurts, shedding tears, and loving. Yeah, the words aren’t said, but it’s there, and we have all the time in the world. For me, there’s no doubt it’s there. We’ve both had suffering mixed in with love. We’ve loved and lost and were never satisfied. But I’m satisfied with her, and I see in her eyes that she’s satisfied with me. We both have pasts and we’ve both had pain, but what we’ve never had was each other. But now we do. Thank God, now we do.
“Come on, Deck.” She licks her lips, eyes fixed on my dick. I straddle her hips with my knees, letting my cock rub between her legs in tantalizing swipes.
I take one nipple between my lips, varying the suction from gentle and barely there, to rough and aggressive. All the while pinching the other and rolling the nipple between my fingers. I transfer my mouth to the other breast and slide my hand, palm flat against her belly, between her legs. She jerks when I peel back the lips and rub my fingertip over her clit in a swift rhythm. It plumps and tightens…
My dick twitches inside of her… and she grins, locking her ankles behind my back. She better lock ’em. She has no idea how hard she’s about to get fucked. I hitch an arm under her knee and grind in so deep my balls get wet. Her eyes go wide, and her body moves up the bed with the first few thrusts. I pump into her at full force, rocking the headboard into the wall, making the mattress moan. “Oh my God.” One of her hands leaves my ass and grips the sheet at her side. “This is . . . oh my God.”
Oh my gaawd, indeed!
Holiday Hoops is a short, sexy novella that packs a signature Ryan emotional gut punch. My only complaint is that I feel in love with Mack and Avery and wish it could have been longer. The curse of good novellas! They always leave you wanting more!
