“Ahhh.” My back arches off the bed as my body explodes with sensations. He splays a large hand over my hips to hold me in place.
“Fuck me. I knew you would taste just as good as you look,” he mumbles against my flesh as he devours me in the most intimate way. His tongue moves slowly and skillfully, knowing exactly where to lick and how much pressure to use.
I wind my fingers tightly in his soft, damp hair and my hips begin to meet his mouth with greedy desperation. His groan of approval vibrates against my swollen clit and brings me to teeter on the edge. “Oh god, Cade, I’m going to come.”
“Give it to me, baby, let me fucking taste it,” he growls just before sucking the swollen bud into his mouth, and sending me flying.
Everything around me falls away as my body becomes overwhelmed with sensations. Even the cries of his name, that escape my lips, sound distant to my ears. He keeps his rhythm, never letting up, until every bit of pleasure spills from my body. Eventually, I float back down to reality, and once my breathing slows to a more normal pace, I open my eyes. Cade stares down at me as he stands at the edge of the bed. His eyes are the darkest I’ve ever seen them and display so many emotions that it’s impossible to pinpoint even one.
Getting to my knees, my face becomes level with his chest and I wrap my arms around his waist. An unexpected bolt of electricity shoots through my body and we both moan at the skin on skin contact. I hold him close and press a kiss right over his heart. Its strong, steady beat plays a beautiful rhythm against my lips.
“Thank you,” I whisper against his chest.
He threads his fingers through my hair and forces my gaze to his. “Believe me, Red, it was my fucking pleasure.”
Smiling, I press another soft kiss over his heart before looking up at him. “It’s my turn now to do some exploring, Walker.”
His jaw clenches and his eyes turn to liquid fire. Pulling back just a little, I press my warm hand to his smooth abdomen and trail it along the hard contours of his body, feeling his muscles twitch under my palm. When I reach the dark, swirling lines of the tattoo that starts at his hip, I begin following the beautiful design with my finger. My tracing comes to an abrupt halt when I reach his ribs. There, in the intricate lines of black ink, is something that looks like a thick white ribbon and in the center of it is the name Mia in script.
I look up at him, and along with the fire in his eyes burns a pain so strong I swear I can feel it all the way to my soul. “Your sister?” I ask softly. He grinds his teeth and responds with a single nod.
My heart swells, and I wish more than anything I could take away the pain that I know he still harbors so deep inside of him. Wanting to offer some comfort, I place a soft kiss over her name. His body goes stiff telling me things are getting too intense for him. Not wanting anything to ruin this moment, I move on quickly and start trailing my lips toward his chest, stopping when I get to his nipple ring. Reaching up, I finger the piece of metal with fascination.
“Did it hurt?” I ask, looking up at him. He shakes his head and I watch his eyes darken as I play with the hoop. When my nail accidentally gives it a little tug he groans out loud. “Did that hurt or feel good?”
His eyes turn another shade darker. “Good, baby. Really fucking good.”
Smiling, I lean in and flick the ring with my tongue then graze his nipple with my teeth before giving the hoop another tug. Something that can only be described as animalistic rumbles from his chest, and before I know it I’m on my back again, with him on top, his erection pressing against the one spot I crave for him most. I lift my hips to grind into him and we both groan at the contact.
He latches his mouth to one of my nipples and sucks the tight bud hard enough that pleasure and pain become one. It causes my clit to swell with anticipation again. “I wasn’t done exploring you yet.” A whimper of pleasure escapes me and I arch into his mouth, contradicting the complaint I just made.
“Not fair. You got all the time you wanted to explore me.”
“I could spend a lifetime exploring your body and it still wouldn’t be long enough.” I freeze, his words sending my heart into a tailspin. I can immediately tell he regrets letting that out.
Shaking his head, he grumbles something I don’t quite catch then reaches over for his wallet, that’s on the small stand beside his bed, and pulls out a condom. He looks back down at me with hesitation again. “If you want to back out, Red, now is the time to say so.”
I hold his gaze with certainty and shake my head. “I’m not changing my mind. I want you more than I’ve ever wanted anything in my entire life.”
Rising up, I seal my words with a kiss, and as our tongues tangle in a desperate rhythm, I run my hands down his powerful body until I reach the waistband of his pants. Pushing the black material down, I feel his erection spring free. I grasp his smooth, hard cock in a firm grip and gasp when I feel how big he is.
Groaning, Cade pulls his mouth away and looks between our bodies where I stroke him. I have seen penises before. Two to be exact, and they were maybe half the size of this. A small amount of trepidation begins to mix with the desire I have coursing through my body. When he pumps himself into my hand, a small bit of pre cum spills from him. I take my thumb and swirl it around the smooth tip.
“Shit!” he hisses before pulling out of my hand. Getting to his knees, he rips open the foil packet and sheaths himself in record time. Moving back over me, he braces himself on his elbows. I feel his hard length on the inside of my thigh and my heart speeds up in anticipation for what we are about to do.
“You ready, baby?”
Leaning down he gives me a searing kiss then, without breaking contact, he rises up on one arm and grasps his cock with the other. He runs it through my wet flesh and I whimper when he skims over my clit. Once his erection is wet with my arousal, he slowly slides the tip of himself inside of me. I gasp into his mouth at the tight invasion then bury my face into his neck.
“Ah fuck! Fuck, fuck, fuck!” he grinds out between clenched teeth. “Try to relax, baby.”
I let my legs fall open and try to breathe through the agony and pleasure my body is going through. Cade’s arms shake with restraint and sweat begins to dot his forehead as he slowly rocks back and forth until he’s fully seated inside of me.
“You okay, Red?”
“Yes,” I reply truthfully. “It’s getting a little better.”
“Good. Because you feel fucking amazing.” He gives me some time to adjust and presses a gentle kiss to my forehead. The tender action has warmth exploding through my heart – and he said he didn’t know how to make love to someone.
I lift my hips to meet his and we both moan at the contact. “I’m good now,” I reassure him.
Rising up on his arms, he begins thrusting with sure, steady strokes. Our gazes never waver from one another as his beautiful, powerful body moves inside of me with absolute perfection. I finally know why I hadn’t wanted to do this with anyone before now – it’s because it was always meant to be with him. I know with every fiber of my being that I was meant to meet Cade Walker, even if it was only for this short moment in time. And no matter who or what comes after this, I will cherish this moment with him for the rest of my life.
Raising my hand, I trace his rough, scratchy jaw all the way across his smooth, firm lips. His eyes fall closed and he buries his face in my neck. “Jesus, Red. What the fuck are you doing to me?”
My heart clenches from the torment in his voice. I hold him close, wanting to comfort him as much as possible, and turn my mouth toward his ear. “This is one of those beautiful things I was telling you about that life has to offer us. Don’t fight it, Cade, for once just let yourself feel.”
He doesn’t respond but I didn’t expect him to. Instead he brings his mouth to mine in a powerful kiss and begins to thrust inside of me, a little harder and a little faster. Slight shock waves begin to flutter low in my tummy and I start matching him pace for pace.
Cade groans and pulls his mouth away. “That’s it, baby. Take it. I can feel how close you are to coming again.”
His pace increases and I wrap one of my legs around his back as I feel the pleasure taking me higher and higher. Changing the way he thrusts, he starts hitting a certain spot inside of me, one I didn’t even know exists. “Oh god, Cade,” I whimper, just before my body finally falls over the edge. I cry out as my orgasm explodes through me.
“Yes. Fucking beautiful!” he growls right before he stills and spills himself inside of me.
He rests his forehead on mine while we lay in a sweat-tangled mess, trying to catch our breaths. I stare into his intense gaze and smile. “I knew you liked me.”
He grunts. “Like is a fucking understatement, Red.”
I giggle but it trails off into a moan as he pulls out of me. I turn on my side to face him as he lies down beside me, hoping to give him more room. “How on earth do you sleep on this bed? It’s so small, especially for a big guy like you.”
“This bed is fucking paradise, compared to where I normally sleep while I’m out on a mission.” I can only imagine the places he has had to sleep, and the things he’s had to endure. The thought has my stomach churning.
