â€œYouâ€™re good, Nick. You know just what to do and how to behave. This is why you attract women in droves.â€
I kind of want to protest. I feel like she has this impression of me that I donâ€™t necessarily want her to have, but Iâ€™m not sure how to deflect this. â€œBecause I have a gift?â€
â€œThat and several other reasons.â€ She waves broadly at my arms. Itâ€™s October, but itâ€™s not chilly tonight so I donâ€™t have a jacket on. â€œFirst, there are the arms. All that ink and muscle.â€
She roams her eyes over my biceps. â€œI mean, your ink is awesome,â€ she says, pointing to the shapes and swirls I designed myself. The tattoos are abstract lines and curves, but inside them thereâ€™s a sun, a moon, and stars, because those were the first things I realized I was good at drawing.
â€œThen, the body. Mr. Menâ€™s Health-Iâ€™m-so-fit,â€ she says in this mocking tone, but itâ€™s not me sheâ€™s making fun of. Itâ€™s the article.
â€œYou read it?â€
â€œI read everything. I devour information,â€ she says, and weâ€™re right back to that place I seem to inhabit with her, where she compliments me, but she could be saying it like Iâ€™m a car sheâ€™s considering buying. And this one has one hundred seventy horsepower.
â€œAnd then, thereâ€™s your face, and you have all this awesome scruff on it.â€
I run a hand over my jaw, and the neat, trim beard thatâ€™s like an additional sex toy I can bring to the bedroom. â€œChicks dig the beard,â€ I say, with a lopsided grin.
â€œI bet they do,â€ she says under her breath. She doesnâ€™t say anything else right away. She presses her teeth into the corner of her lip and then speaks, more softly than before. â€œCan I feel it?â€
She raises her hand and touches my jaw. My breath hitches as she runs her thumb across the light bristles. Iâ€™m keenly aware of every second that passes, one ticking into the next as she touches me, stroking my jawline like sheâ€™s mesmerized by the texture.
â€œSoft,â€ she whispers, almost in wonder as she stares at my chin. My heart starts hammering, and I fight to stay still. When she says, â€œBut kind of hard, too,â€ I swear, I donâ€™t know how I manage not to cup her cheeks, back her up against the stone wall, and just kiss the hell out of her. Kiss, touch, grind, and then some. I want to yank that lush body against mine, let her feel how much she turns me on, and find out if I do the same thing to her. The way her breath barely catches sends my mind spinning and lust spiraling tight in me. I canâ€™t help but hope she wants what I do, and it feels like she could, going by the way she touches my face. It truly fucking does, and maybe thatâ€™s why her name takes shape in my throat like a warning.
So she knows sheâ€™s playing with fire if she touches me like this again.
ABOUT MISTER O:
âœ®âœ®âœ®MISTER O will be available on Kindle on release day May 2!âœ®âœ®âœ®
Just call me Mister O. Because YOUR pleasure is my super power.
Making a woman feel ‘oh-god-that’s-good’ is the name of the game, and if a man can’t get the job done, he should get the hell out of the bedroom. I’m talking toe-curling, mind-blowing, sheet-grabbing ecstasy. Like I provide every time.
I suppose that makes me a superhero of pleasure, and my mission is to always deliver.
But then I’m thrown for a loop when a certain woman asks me to teach her everything about how to win a man. The only problem? She’s my best friend’s sister, but she’s far too tempting to resist–especially when I learn that sweet, sexy Harper has a dirty mind too and wants to put it to good use. What could possibly go wrong as I give the woman I’ve secretly wanted some no-strings-attached lessons in seduction?
No one will know, even if we send a few dirty sexts. Okay, a few hundred. Or if the zipper on her dress gets stuck. Not on that! Or if she gives me those f*&k-me-eyes on the train in front of her whole family.
The trouble is the more nights I spend with her in bed, the more days I want to spend with her out of bed. And for the first time ever, I’m not only thinking about how to make a woman cry out in pleasure –I’m thinking about how to keep her in my arms for a long time to come.
Looks like the real Adventures of Mister Orgasm have only just begun….
**MISTER O is a standalone romantic comedy and it follows supporting characters first introduced in BIG ROCK**
