The sound of water running woke him instantly and his eyes scanned the room. The walls were thin, he noted. He even heard her soft sigh of pleasure when she stepped under the spray. In minutes he was up, naked and stepping into the shower with her, handing her the small bottle of body wash she preferred.
“Here, don’t use that stuff,” he scolded. “I love how you smell and Lord only knows what’s in the crap they supply.”
“Thanks. Did you sleep well?” she inquired, facing the spray while he stepped closer and rubbed her shoulders. She placed the small motel sample back on the shower shelf.
“Well enough.” His big hands gently moved her hair. He lowered his lips to her shoulder.
“Mmm,” Joy murmured, angling her neck to give him better access. Slowly his hands crept around her waist and reached up, cupping her breasts. Pouring some soap in her hand she reached behind her and cupped his sack, massaging gently and feeling him grow hard against her.
Jay’s lips nipped her neck and moved higher as she pressed her bottom back.
“What are you hiding from me, baby?” he whispered before his tongue traced her shell like ear.
Joy stiffened, instantly knowing it had been a mistake. Pouring more soap onto her chest she took his hands and moved them, making them slide over her slippery skin. One stayed at her breast, the other she pushed lower until his long fingers slipped between her legs.
For a few moments he gave her what she wanted, rubbing her slit as she squirmed against his cock. Little whimpers escaped her lips. Finally she turned in his arms and pressed fully against him, moving her body side to side. She smiled up at him.
“I’m not hiding anything, Jay,” she assured him sweetly. “I give you everything I have, everything I am,” she purred seductively.
He bent his head, took her lips and nearly laughed into her mouth.
“My, you are a naughty little lady, lying to me as if you thought you could get away with it. It might have been fun playing your daddy for a while, giving you a good licking every time you misbehaved. Perhaps I should have given that assignment more consideration,” he breathed against her mouth.
Her knees weakened and she sagged for a moment in his arms before he tightened his grasp, one hand holding the cheek of her ass securely.
“Now, do you want to tell me the truth?” he asked, staring down into her startled eyes.
“Yes,” she replied breathlessly. “I was going to tell you as soon as we got here, but I fell asleep.”
“We’re wide awake now,” he pointed out, prodding at her bottom hole as she squirmed.
“I know, and I will tell you, but please can’t it wait?” she pleaded as his fingertip eased into her bottom. “I need…”
“I know what you need,” he growled. “Get on your hands and knees,” he ordered, turning her away from him so she was facing the back of the shower.
When Joy accidentally comes across the man of her dreams, she snaps him up pretty quickly. He’s exactly like the heroes in the erotic novels she adores: loving, forceful and mature. The situation she’s gotten herself into turns deadly and J.R. Everly is just the sort of man a woman needs at such times.
Although Joy is a Forensic Accountant she convinces herself she can be happy on Jay’s Ranch, but soon the lure of adventure rears its head. After all, they already survived one dangerous assignment. Why shouldn’t they take on another, this time as a team?
Jay is completely against Joy’s further involvement in the agency. She’s young, inquisitive and has no idea what she’s getting into. He puts his foot down, hard, or rather, his hand, but it’s too late. The damage has been done thanks to his underhanded and manipulative boss. Now they’re in trouble up to their necks.
Her man wanted to retire. Does he have another rescue in him and if so, what’s it going to cost her?
