"Hey,” she whispers, standing on her tiptoes gazing at me passionately. I lean in, crushing my lips to hers, wanting to taste her again, feel her body under my hands, and hear the sounds she makes when I'm pleasing her. "These won’t do," she murmurs in my mouth, and I feel her tug at the waist of my shorts. I groan when she slowly slides them off and kicks them aside. She grins when she sees how primed I am for her. I moan when she reaches down, curls her fingers around me, and strokes me up and down several times.
I lift her by her thighs and press her up against the wall; she curls her legs around my waist, pinning her hips tightly against me. Grabbing my face, she kisses me slowly at first, but then all control is out the window. The kiss becomes deep and hungry. Pulling away breathless and panting, she stares into my eyes. I haven't seen this look before, and I hope I see it again. From where I stand, things look good for me.
“No good girl tonight," she whispers in my ear. "Give me all you got. I want what we share tonight to hold me over until you come back." She breathes as she continues to kiss me, my mouth exploring hers. The heat in the room doubles, and I react by grabbing her waist tighter. "I want you to be rough with me." She purrs, tugging at my hair. I'm already insane for her, but those last words she speaks take me over the edge.
Locking eyes with her, I reach down and caress between her legs. “I need you. So. Bad. Baby." I utter, pressing into her. She moans and steals my lips, taking it to a frenzied pace, her hips meeting mine. The noise that escapes her when she feels my length pressed against her is nothing short of ecstasy. I want her so fucking bad. I nip at her swollen breast, slowly working my way back to her sweet lips, tracing and teasing every inch of her body with my fingers.
"Baby, please." She moans. "I need you now." The sound she makes right before I slowly sink into her is pure music to my ears
I must start off saying that the whole time I was reading this I was wishing I was Elle. I have a hard enough time getting 1 guy, this chick has 3 falling all over her!!! And, when I say 3 guys, I mean 3 fine, sexy guys!! You have Cane her boyfriend of 2 years. Tyler her best friend since they were young. And, finally Reed. The new guy from Texas. Who literally has "bad boy" written all over him.
We start off with Elle having a girls night out. She bumps into the sexy Reed and is instantly taken by him. But, the fact that she's with Cane she really doesn't pay much attention to it. The same goes for him. He's instantly like WOW!!! But, that's it. Or so they thought.
The next day Elle goes to work to see the guy with the deep blue eyes hanging out with her boyfriend Cane. She's instantly hot & flustered and really does not know why. Then, he opens his mouth. The southern accent comes out and she's even more flustered.
Reed was having a great day so far. He was out of the house early. Got his roommate to kick out his one night stand. Then, he's at work at there she is. The beautiful girl from the bar the night before. And, he couldn't be happier. Until he realized his new friend Cane is her boyfriend.
Over the next couple weeks Elle and Reed try to fight back these feelings they're having for each other. Elle is doing her best to not let Cane see her acting weird whenever Reed's around. Esp, since they are doing so good. Elle has her walls very far up . 1st her parent's get divorced and her dad moves on with his life. Then, she starts dating Cane and he cheats on her with his ex-girlfriend. Now, Cane is talking about wanting to move in with Elle. They really are cute together. Even though every time she turns around her thought's are on Reed. She wonders what his touch and his kiss would feel like. Plus, she's got Tyler who's waiting. Waiting for his turn. His shot to finally tell her he's madly in love with her. And, that he'd treat her like the princess she is to him. In her eyes her life is good!
Then, everything changes. Elle gets stuck going out with the girls. She runs into Tyler and Reed. While on the dance floor a total stranger gets a little handsy. Reed and Tyler come to her rescue. Then, her friend pulls her aside with bad news. There he is...Cane....Making out with his ex-girlfriend!!!! She's absolutely devastated. Ella can not believe he's done this AGAIN!! Reed on the other hand. He's livid at Cane for hurting Elle. But, on the other hand he's excited. He wants to be the one to put the pieces of her heart back together.
Elle & Reed jump in feet 1st without looking back. I really, really loved their chemistry together. Even though he's a bad boy, goes thru 1 night stands on a regular basis. When it comes to Elle. He's the perfect guy. He treats her like a princess.No matter what she tries he won't just jump into bed with her. Which for him is a complete 180. He wants to prove to her that everything she thinks is him, isn't. For Elle she's never connected with anyone the way she has with Reed. She can not for the life of it figure out what it is about Reed that makes her feel the way she feels. And, poor Tyler. Just when he thought he was finally getting his shot at love. He gets put back on the shelf. Again!!!
Over the course of the next few weeks a lot of thing's happen. BOTH Reed and Elle have a bunch of secrets in their personal lives that either one is ready is tell the other one. Tyler is trying his hardest to win over Elle's heart. Don't forget Cane either. He's def not out of the picture either. He hates what he's done to Elle. He's trying his hardest to get her forgiveness.
I really can't and won't give much of the story away. But, I will tell you that both Elle and Reed's secrets are BIG. Some worse then the other ones. But, are they that big that they can get over and move on. For me, I really did love this story & all the characters in this story. My BIGGEST pet peeve was the HUGE cliffhanger!!! OMG!!! I literally thought my nook didn't download the whole book. I've read books with cliffhangers. But, not this bad. I'm waiting to see how their story continues. Other then that I loved this book!
