Date of Publication: December 8, 2015


Dirty Billionaire

I’ve got a big dick and an even bigger bank account. That’s pretty much where my bio ends.
Honestly, I don’t need to say anything else. I’ve just sold 99% of women on going home with me.
Do I sound like an asshole to you?
That’s because I am.
And guess what? It works for me just fine.
Or at least it did.
Until I met her.
Books talk about sparks flying. Fuck that shit. With her, it was like emergency flares mixed with jet fuel. Or maybe just straight up napalm.
Only one problem.
She wouldn’t tell me her name or her number when she disappeared from the hotel room after the hottest fucking night of my life.
Now I’ve had a taste of unicorn pussy—the sweetest, rarest of all pussy—and I need it again.
So what’s an asshole to do?
I took this problem to the street. A missed connection gone viral.
And when I find her? I’m keeping her.

Super dirty indeed. YES. Why am I majorly turned on by this incredibly arrogant, condescending asshole? This may be more about me than about the book, but OhEmGee, Creighton is like a fucking freight train of asshole and I LOVED HIM.

My enjoyment of him is also probably because you can literally feel the asshole slipping off of him like a second skin as Holly sneaks her way underneath his defenses. It’s adorable and possibly one of my favorite plotlines EVER. like ever ever. March writes this kind of story with flair and finesse and she will have you begging for more.

Without giving too much away, Holly is a fiery, but young, up and coming country music star. Her label is holding so many strings that she’s basically a puppet at this point just dancing to their desires. Unfortunately one of their desires is that she play up her relationship to the more popular, but less endearing, music colleague, JC Hughes.

Let’s just say that Holly’s so not down for that. Give me a strong and sassy woman like Holly all day, every day. She might be young, but she’s been through hell and no one is walking all over her – not her label, and definitely not Creighton.

I could feel Creighton’s commands through my kindle and I almost went down to me knees a few times. March swirls a fun story with characters you want to love. Dirty Billionaire is aptly named and searingly hot: I was immediately addicted. GIVE ME MORE. Thanks, Meghan.

How is he going to explain this one away to girlfriend Holly Wix and his fans?

“That two-timin’ son of a . . .”

I hiss under my breath as I stare at the headline—and the compromising picture accompanying it—splashed in vivid color across the front page of the gossip rag displayed prominently in the checkout line at my supermarket. For the second time in two months, it’s a picture of my “boyfriend” locked in an unmistakably passionate embrace with another woman, except this time she’s wearing a giant black strap-on.

The edges of the paper crumple in my sweaty grip, and I fight the urge to tear it to shreds, along with every copy sitting on the rack in front of me.

He’s going to destroy my career before it even has a chance to become a reality.

One year, they said. One year in this joke of a “relationship” and I’d earn my stripes, be all set in the world of country music. Judge me all you want for agreeing, but when your brand-new record label puts something like that in the contract that will jet you out of the backwoods town you’re dying to escape, you don’t ask questions. You sign on the dotted line.

But reality is a cold slap in the face, and some days it hits you when you’re standing in line at the grocery store. What happens when they finally catch JC with a guy? His habit of swinging both ways, but preferring men to women, is about to become the worst-kept secret in Nashville.

I’m Holly Wix, winner of a make-me-a-star TV show, and handpicked by the label to buoy JC’s once-impressive but now flagging career. It didn’t seem like a big deal when they slipped it into my contract in the beginning. What starry-eyed girl wouldn’t be thrilled to have her name linked to a country star?

Instead of the one-way ticket to stardom I naively expected, I’m becoming the butt of every industry joke faster than the guys back home can spend their paycheck on twelve-packs and scratch-offs. But I’ve got one shot at keeping this dream career alive, and honestly, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do to save it. So this situation with JC needs to get settled before things spiral further out of control.

Review: Midnight Mass by Sierra Simone


Author: Sierra Simone

Book: Midnight Mass (Priest #1.5)

Other book in series:

Priest (Priest #1)

tl;dr recommendation: this novella suckerpunched me and left me breathless – and with so much hope. 5 stars!

Book Summary:

We are told that God will punish the wicked. That sinful men will reap what they sow. We are told to scourge our souls with prayer and pain to become clean once again.

Well, here I am. Wicked and sinful. Desperate to become clean…even though it feels so good to be dirty.

But even I never expected what came next.

Even I never expected my punishment to come so soon.

***Midnight Mass is a novella and a sequel to Priest. It’s intended for mature audiences only.***

Longer Review:

Once again Sierra has gathered up my emotions and shoved them into what feels like the smallest space of my heart, holding them captive, letting them bash into each other and move faster and faster until the point of pain – until the point that I think that may heart may just fucking burst – and then she releases them allatonce and I swear to fuck that they made the ‘whoosh’ sound and everything as they rushed out into the night.

This is not a fluffy and lighthearted book.

This is not a smiley skipping in a field of wildflowers book.

This is a raw insight into Poppy and Father Bell at their worst – and at their best. It’s the dark clashing with the light, it’s selfishness clashing with selflessness, it’s about what happens when everything breaks and feels hopeless and how those pieces can find their way back together. It’s about appreciating the littlest things in your partner, and holding them tight in your grasp. I ADORED THIS NOVELLA.

It’s not always happily ever after. When the pages shut and the days continue, life can sometimes get in the way of those gorgeous moments in time that make everything right. Tyler is in mid-dissertation and he’s pretty freaking distracted. Of course, Poppy’s been working hard as well to create The Perfect Event. This left not a lot of time for talking and a lot more time for longing. You can feel them start to slip from each other – you can feel the hot knife of jealousy shoved through Tyler’s chest and the burning flames of guilt eat him alive for every moment he’s not spending with Poppy. It’s gloriously honest and frighteningly accurate.

There are, of course, hot as sin scenes that will leave you thinking you’re in heaven. The raw and sometimes emotionally (and occasionally physically) brutal scenes filled the gaping need I had for these two. Sierra writes some of the most beautifully blasphemous scenes I have ever read. *drools*

I inhaled Sierra’s words like I’ve been fasting for days. Beautiful and deep, this novella suckerpunched me and left me breathless – and with so much hope. 5 stars!

Release Day Review: Snowed in by Lila Monroe


Title: Snowed In
Author: Lila Monroe
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: December 2, 2015

Throwing a blow-out bash for hot rockstar-turned-music exec Ace Carmichael should be as easy as pecan pie. It’s my chance to prove my party-planning skills, but this bad boy client isn’t making life simple with his broody looks and aversion to shirts. If only he’d stop tempting me to jingle all the way…to his hot tub…this could be my big break.

But thanks to four feet of snow, the event of the year is suddenly a party for two. So deck the halls with a dangerously sexy tattooed rocker, a dozen cases of champagne and…me.

When the snow melts, Santa might not be the only one who’s coming. So what’s it going to be this year: naughty or nice?

Purchase Links

Lila is my brand of humor. Every time I read her books it’s like the sarcasm flows just a little more freely afterwards…and well, if you know me then you know that that’s pretty impressive. Like monumentally impressive. Almost as impressive as Ace’s large and beautiful….winter lodge. Ok, he has a nice package too. and by package I mean dick.

see. that’s lila’s fault. you can blame her for those last few sentences.

Snowed In thrust me into a winter wonderland of happiness and romance and hilarity. I was thrilled to read about Paige – the perfect sister – and I found I actually liked her. Like Lila’s other heroine’s she has a strong voice and a stronger backbone. Except when Ace is whispering in her ear or licking down her chest or eating her….perfectly prepared dinner. *snort* I DID IT AGAIN. #sorrynotsorry.

Paige is trying to start up her event planning business. She’s a bit of a perfectionist and she’s desperate to make a name for herself – I mean, she’d really rather not go back to planning dog parties. She will. But she really doesn’t want to.

Of course the owner of the winter lodge that booked her next party is Ace. And of course he’s a bit of a playboy and a lot of a tease. But they are so freaking cute together that I wanted to shove them against each other for every bit of this book.

god I love lila. and her books. and the smiling that they induce. This novella is a short, simple & happy story that will warm you up from the inside out. 5 stars!

[I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review]


I give a very theatrical, hopefully convincing yawn. “Wow, it’s late and I’m beat. Time for bed.” I click off the television as Ace stands and helps me to my feet.​He doesn’t let go of my hand. We’re close enough that I can feel heat radiating from his body. I breathe in the scent of him, pine and snow. He’s only wearing a thin black tee shirt, and I’m pretty sure I can pick out the definition of every part of his body.

​He still hasn’t let go of my hand. Lightly, he runs his thumb across my palm.

​“I don’t know if you got the full tour of the house. Best thing about it, in my opinion, is the spa hot tub. It’s just outside.”

​“Oh?” I should take my hand away, but my body won’t do what I tell it. “It’s a little cold out there, isn’t it?”

​“Once you’re in, you won’t even notice. I’m planning on a midnight soak.” He pulls me a little closer, mischief in his expression. “Why don’t you join me?”

​“I.” There’s nothing I can say that’ll make sense. Ace grins. It’s a wicked smile, that’s the only way to describe it. “I don’t think I should,” I manage. “There’s a perfectly functional tub in my bathroom, anyway. So. I’ll just take a raincheck. On the hot tub.”

​“You don’t want to try it?” He lets go of my hand and touches my face. “Or is it that you’re afraid of me?” He trails his fingertips across my cheek. “Which is it? Door one or two? One of them leads to a fabulous destination vacation.” His voice drops to a lower register. A sexy one. “You should loosen up, party planner. It’s just hot water. And I promise you’ll still be your tough and capable self afterward.”

​My breath hitches in my throat. I’m almost ready to say something stupid, like ‘I don’t have a bathing suit’ or ‘which way to the pitch black snowy outdoors?’ when common sense crashes through the window to truss me up, sling me over its shoulder, and race away.

​“It’s going to be a long day tomorrow. I should get some sleep. Good night.” I break away from him as not-awkwardly as possible and head upstairs. I have to stop halfway up, though, and lean against the railing and close my eyes. My heart is still racing, and all the heat in my body has pooled, not so unwelcomely, between my legs.

​I told the truth—I do have to grab a shower and go to bed. But the thought of Ace out there in the hot tub, stripped down, his muscles relaxing under the beat of the jets…

I’ll probably need to make it a cold shower.

Release Day Review: Unwrap me by J. Kenner

Unwrap Me Stark Ever After FB Banner 2

From New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner comes an electrifying holiday eBook novella. In Unwrap Me, fan favorites Damien Stark and Nikki Fairchild get ready for Christmas—and this year they’re both on the
very naughty list.

kenn_unwra_9780425284544.inddIncludes a special preview of Dirtiest Secret, the
provocative first novel in J. Kenner’s highly anticipated new trilogy!

Damien Stark is my greatest Christmas wish come true. Immensely
powerful and devastatingly sexy, he can undo me with the slightest touch, and
with just one glance, he can see straight into my soul.

We both have dark secrets, twisted pieces of our pasts that
only the other one understands. Though our fierce love and passion keeps me
alive, sometimes I wonder what would’ve happened if Damien and I hadn’t met in
exactly the way we did.

How would my life have been different? Would another man
have laid claim to my body and my heart? Or were Damien and I destined to be
together no matter the cost?

Unwrap Me is intended for mature audiences.J. Kenner (aka Julie Kenner) is the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and #1 International bestselling author of over seventy novels, novellas and short stories in a variety of genres.




This novella started out with a fantastic fuck. The heat that I was expecting was fully present and it enveloped me back into the world of Damien and Nikki immediately. I adore their relationship, love and devotion to one another – how they just seem to feel and know the other so completely. It’s just plain perfect.

So when this book took a turn in an ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ fashion it sort of bummed me out. The dream sequence just didn’t do it for me and I found myself reading through it so I could get the fuck back to the present with two of my favorite characters of all time.

Of course Kenner’s writing is well thought out and beautifully done, but the actual story didn’t capture me as I had hoped. I will, of course, always read about these two. Overall, this was a sweet and spicy Christmas Story that you’ll want to stuff in your stocking, especially if you’re jonesing for more of the Starks.

…I’d like Damien to stuff my stocking…

tl;dr recommendation: fun and playful and incredibly erotic – 5 stars!

Book Summary:

I’ve never felt as close to anyone as I have with Damien Stark. I know every line of his body, every secret within his soul. There’s nothing I crave more than his touch, and with his kiss, he seals his claim.

Las Vegas is the perfect place for us, where we can indulge every desire and fantasy. But when someone from my past resurfaces, I can’t ignore my instinct that I have to make things right.

With Damien by my side, I feel safe no matter the danger. Our passion protects us, drives us, makes us whole. His pleasure is an exquisite game, and one that I’ll play forever.

Longer Review:

Let the seduction begin! Who doesn’t love a little role play in their marriage? Damien and Nikki are experts at playing the part, playing hard to get and playing to win. A little Vegas trip sets the stage for their charade but when a person from Nikki’s past makes an appearance, the curtains swing closed.

Kenner gives us more of the Starks who we so desperately love and pairs them with a little bit of drama that the story needs. These are two of my favorite characters EVER and I was so happy to see them back in action – and I mean that just how it sounds.

I was satisfied, seduced and warmed right back up. Damien can play with me – anytime, anywhere. This novella is fun and playful and incredibly erotic. Loved!

Release Day Review: Brando – part 2 by JD Hawkins

 Release Date: November 12, 2015
I gave you exactly what you wanted, and you still want more…I thought I had everything: the fame, the money, and a girl on top — of the charts, that is.But it turns out, it means nothing without her.

And I’m all in.
All the way in.

Purchase Links


I love me some Brando. Hawkins turns up the volume in the conclusion to this serial – angst meets love, trust builds into hope and Brando’s cock once again finds its home. SIGH. all is right with my world.

Brando knows he made a huge mistake. He made a bet that he knew he could win, but that he ultimately lost. Now that Haley knows she has not interest in letting Brando back in – I mean, how can she possibly trust that everything they shared wasn’t a lie? And then just when there’s a sliver of hope and the trust starts be be rebuilt, another secret is revealed that will test the already tenuous string holding their relationship together.

I thoroughly enjoyed this series. The banter is great, but Haley’s refusal to give in to Brando and serving him a taste of his own game was even better. I am always a huge huge fan of women who have sass and a voice, and Haley sings hers loudly on and off the stage.

There are also some tender moments that took me by surprise. The characters here are valued and molded into people you want to love. For as hard and brash as Brando is on the outside, we’re let inside in part 2 and I loved what I found. He’s believably devastated over how his relationship with Haley has flipped on its head and undeniably vulnerable as he tries to win her back. He’s still hot as fuck.

Hawkins spins you around like a record, toying with your emotions for longer than a four minute track but leaving with you a wicked smile on your face. There is no doubt that the crowd will cheer for this series and I am happily in the front row screaming until I have Party Girl Voice. This series is fun, flirty and just fucking fun. 5 stars!

Release Day Review: His Muse by Coral F. Black

his muse

Author: Coral F. Black

Book: His Muse (#1)

tl;dr recommendation: With some tightening and polishing, this novella will certainly gain a few points. There’s plenty of promise here to grow and I look forward to finishing out the series to see how this all shakes out. 3 stars!

Book Summary:

No one had ever looked at me like that. Especially not the hottest man I’d ever seen. He had the lean, tan muscles of a world class athlete, thick black hair, huge hands marbled by big veins. Before he picked up his camera to shoot, he looked at me with eyes that could have set me on fire.

Nothing else mattered; he was all I wanted.

But when Daniel Baldessari called me “undateable” in order to get a reaction for the perfect fashion shot, I knew I was really in trouble.

And after that first shoot, things started getting even stranger. Who was the “mystery client” that wanted to hire me for an exclusive contract and was sending me gorgeous flowers and boxes of sexy silk clothing and stilettos so that I’d say yes? Why did Daniel Baldessari’s beautiful cousin keep showing up at his house? And what was the dark secret from his past that threatened to tear us apart before I could find out if this maddening man even wanted me?

I knew I had to find out.

Longer Review:

This plotline definitely has promise and, as Coral’s debut novella, it has the pieces of something that can be great. Twyla seems to be a mostly strong and kindhearted heroine. She’s determined to make it in the modeling industry so she can support both herself and her brother. When she heads to her first shoot she meets the photographer, Daniel Balderssari, whose full name was repeated so many times I wanted to dive into the book with a red marker. But I digress.

He’s elusive and aloof and occasionally an asshole, but I suppose he was meant to be an endearing asshole. I’m not sure if there just wasn’t enough development for me because everything happened so fast, or if his behavior really was just so all over the board I couldn’t keep up. Yet, regardless, instalove happens.

There’s clearly something going on with Daniel because while he’s more than willing to touch Twyla, he’s not quite ready for her to touch him…until he’s practically shoved into it. I sort of had a problem with that scene too (I KNOW. I’M SORRY) as Twyla was a virgin…and yettttt, there wasn’t any mention of that while she was being taken hard and fast. How she found Daniel when she walked in on him was also a high on the insane barometer, but I’ll let that one slide, because fiction and all that.

There are plenty of secrets to be revealed and I am curious as to what happens next. With some tightening and polishing, this novella will certainly gain a few points. There’s plenty of promise here to grow and I look forward to finishing out the series to see how this all shakes out. 3 stars!

Review: Camouflage by Angelica Chase

Author: Angelica Chase

Book: Camouflage (Predator and Prey #1)

tl;dr recommendation: I don’t give a shit what you have on your TBR. Clear it off. READ THIS BOOK. 5 STARS.

Book Summary:

I lived my life by two principles: order and excellence.
My moral compass steered me out of the slums of backwoods Tennessee and towards the woman I was destined to become, but not without gathering a few skeletons along the way.

Eventually, I found success, but my restless, relentless nature still left me feeling unsatisfied.

Then I met a ghost.

At first, I was sure Daniello was a figment of my imagination, a beautiful and dangerous apparition with a fat cock and an animalistic hunger. He threatened my control and need for order, and in his absence, I became more haunted by my past.

He wanted me submissive.

I wanted to know him.

Then my ghost met my skeletons.

This is the first book in a series.
If you are not a fan of cursing, erotic, extremely explicit sex, immoral behavior, dysfunction, or sexual scenarios that may make you feel uncomfortable, this is not the series for you.

Longer Review:

Motherfucking EXCEPTIONAL. Camouflage is filthy and raw; gritty and tough. I think I have bruises and I’m fairly certain I just came. Angelica’s writing is phenomenal and this story will grip you so hard you’ll lose your breath. I.AM.IN.LOVE.

“Do you think I am the devil?”
“No…I think you are his greatest creation.”

I really hate comparing authors, but Angelica’s writing reminds me of CD Reiss – incredibly well written prose mixed with rough and delicious sex. Nomnomnomnom. I could eat this up for days.

Taylor has everything together. She’s fought her way out of her dire past, she’s shaken off her skeletons and she has control in everything. She fucks who she wants to fuck, when she wants to fuck them. She gets her work done – on time, every time. She makes an excessive amount of money and she spends it on clothes and cars.

She is this line from Sylvia Plath:

photo credit: http://www.tattooshunt.com/images/14/out-of-the-ash-i-rise-with-my-red-hair-and-i-eat-men-like-air.png

Taylor is as bad ass a woman as they come. She wants to submit sexually, but she hasn’t found a man worthy of her submission…until Daniello.

Daniello is an anti-hero who will fuck you into next week. We have no idea what he does for a living, but we know it’s probably not entirely legal. He has zero boundaries and total control. Taylor’s badassery is only rivaled by Daniello’s. Somehow Taylor keeps finding him sneaking under her carefully guarded heart, and she quickly kicks him out. Perhaps out of her heart, but never out of her bed. Daniello appears as quickly as he disappears, fulfilling Taylor’s every wish, desire and orifice. As Taylor’s past enters her present, she’s forced to face her skeletons – and she may have to involve her ghost.

This is erotica on another level. Hot and sexy doesn’t fully describe these perfectly crafted scenes that will leave you absolutely dripping wet. This book is suspenseful, heated and absolutely perfect. If you don’t like bullets and car chases and public finger fucking, just sit this one out. BUT IF YOU DO – get in & hang on.

The cliffhanger left me needy and vibrating with anger. I thought my eyes were going to fall out with how wide they got. Chase keeps you involved until the very last word. I need book 2 now.

I don’t give a shit what you have on your TBR. Clear it off. READ THIS BOOK.

Release Day Review: One More Rule by Nikki Sloane

Title: One More Rule
Author: Nikki Sloane
Length: Novella, ~100 pages
Price: 99¢
One week back in Chicago to witness our best friends get married. One hot night to help them celebrate. And one rule for the bride and groom to obey: no more sex until the wedding.
After the evening Dominic and I have planned, who will break first?
unnamed (2)

My kindle fogged up. I was reading and reading and then HOLY SHIT EVERYTHING IS FOGGY AND HOT AND SLICK AND WET and did I just come?

That happened. sort of. part of it. maybe.

Nikki comes at us in this novella with her quintessential filthy scenes that flick between romantic and downright dirty. The first part reunites us with Dominic and Payton – two of my very favorite characters – in Payton’s POV. Logan and Evie are about to get married and who better than to make sure they’re celebrating properly than Dom & Payton?!

The night that they plan for the almost-newlyweds will have you squirming and blushing and looking for your vibrator. Sloane writes heat with finesse and is one of the only writers I trust to give me an exhibitionist or group play scene that I know I’ll like and that is bound to leave me breathless and wanting.
The second part of this novella brings us into Evie’s POV and the wedding of her lifetime. There’s so much love and romance dripping from these pages, if your panties weren’t soaked before, they will be now. Basically, you need this additional peek into the lives of our Rules Girl. It’s very real, very hot, and very necessary.
I can’t love this enough. 5 stars!

I know what you want, and I know exactly how to give it to you…It’s why I’ve got a row of platinum records on my wall and girls lining up for a shot at fame. I’m the best. Now I just need to prove it.

The bet is simple: take a nobody and make her a star. I just didn’t bet on HER.

She’s not some wannabe, she’s the real deal.

But fuck it, I want her. And I always come out on top.

Purchase Link Reviews

BRANDO has the hook that will pull you in until you’re humming in pleasure. This music industry executive is full of muscles, determination, stubbornness and a hint of vulnerability. Basically everything I love in a brooding leading man and everything that will make you swoon. Brando’s flashing smile and mouth watering abs get him more play than Justin Beiber’s newest single. He’s hot, he’s young and he’s focused on getting exactly what he wants – always.

But Brando’s been burned. He may be all hustle and muscle, but when it comes to Lexi Dark, she’s the break in his armor. He made her into the star she is today and she burned him just as she was about to shine. When he’s approached with a bet that could let him get his revenge, he doesn’t hesitate. But he doesn’t expect Haley to refocus his world and adjust the controls to pull him out of autotune.

Haley rocks. She’s refreshing and funny; bright and sarcastic. She doesn’t roll over just because Brando cracks a smile or flexes his muscles and she makes sure that her wishes are known. She doesn’t quite know why Brando’s so interested in her but she wants this….whatever this is…badly.

Haley and Brando make amazing music together…both in the studio and out – they have a great connection, engage in lighthearted banter, and throw off some serious heat. I’d like to carry Brando around with me so that whenever I’m stressed out he can alleviate my worries. With his tongue. And his dick. And his fingers. Because YES. Yes, please. He’s better than prozac.

Are you pretty sure you know how the cliffhanger is going to leave you? Sure. Did I care? Nope. Because this book is a hell of a good time.

Fast paced, light and just plain FUN, this novella will have you tapping your fingers to the beat of Brando and Haley’s song…until that cliffhanger leaves you with dead air. 😉  Hawkins knows how to drop a beat – and a story. This is most definitely his best work to date. NEXT BOOK, PLEASE.

[I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review]

I cup her chin and turn her to face me slowly.“You’re thinking too much. Don’t think.”

A blush creeps across her cheeks and she drops her eyes again. I brush her hair away from her face and let my hand rest on her neck as I slowly move in closer. Her trembling lips steady themselves on mine, softly settling against my mouth. Our breaths mingle, tongues gently tickling at the insides of each other’s lips. I press further, wanting to kiss away all the shakes in her body, to let her thoughts disappear in the heat of our mouths. Her hand presses against my shirt, splayed fingers tentatively tracing the hardness of my chest, before pushing me away from her.

“Brando…” she whispers, her eyes still closed, her mouth still wet. “I think I just need…”

“Tell me what you need,” I coax her.

“I need…” She opens her eyes, and I already know what she’s about to say. “You.”

This is the most restrained I’ve ever been. Every muscle memory in my body wants to tear her clothes off, the look in her lidded eyes all I need to know she wants this – even more than I do. Hours spent around her blossomed lips, her hidden breasts, her slender thighs, hours of caging up my lust for her in pursuit of another goal has made it grow, big and fearsome. Now that the cage is open, it’s taking all of my reserve to stop it from taking me over. I need this to be slow – this is for her.

“I know how to make you sing, Haley,” I growl in short breaths. My hand goes to the inside of her thigh, pressing itself against the front of her jeans. “I can make you sing better than you’ve ever sung before.”

I have the buttons undone in seconds. Warm, strong, fingers teasingly reaching into the lip of her panties. Her head goes back, eyes closed as she starts panting at the ceiling.

“Wait!” she says, snapping back, her hand on my wrist. “I don’t understand what’s happening between us, Brando. Is this about me? Or is this about music?”

I kneel in front of her, slowly pulling down her jeans.

“It’s about music,” I say, kissing her moistening pussy through the soft cotton of her panties. “It’s always about music.”

She replies by moaning softly and grabbing the back of my head as I run my tongue down the inside of her thigh, letting my stubble softly tickle her pale, sensitive skin.

I get her panties off quickly, and run my hands around the back of her waist, holding her still while I explore her pussy with my tongue. The smell drives me wild, stirring the animal in me like a dormant beast. It’s all I can do to stop myself from sprouting fangs and roaring – I wanna take it slow, learn everything I can about what makes her tick.
