âTell me again why you canât stay?â he says as we stand in front of the elevator.
âBecause itâs just not a good idea. And I donât have anything to wear.â
âActually, you do,â he says. âMrs. Naven found some things in the laundry after you left. Problem solved.â He takes both my hands and backs up into the sitting room.
âTristan, we still have some things to sort out. Tonight was great, but I still donât think Iâm cut out to be your submissive.â
âJust my submissive?â
I drop my head. âNo. Anyoneâs.â
âYouâre afraid youâll have panic attacks again, arenât you?â
I feel like Iâm about to be swallowed up by the sincere blue eyes tracking and pinning mine so effectively I canât look away. âYes. And Iâm no use to you if I canât endure the scenes, particularly the occasional disciplinary consequences.â
âWhat if there was a way you could?â His finger traces a gentle path down my cheek.
âWhat do you mean?â
âJust what I said. If there was a way we could work around the panic attacks, would you come back? For good?â
âYou mean until you perfect your exit strategy? Thatâs what you venture capitalists call it, donât you?â
âAh, someoneâs been paying attention at our semiannual business meetings?â
âI have a rather exacting mentor who insists on being heard.â
âAsshole,â he says and pulls me close.
I place my hands on his chest in an effort to sustain some emotional equilibrium, but he doesnât let me go. âIâm the one whoâll be ass-out when you lose confidence in your investment and decide itâs time to diversify your portfolio again.â
âI donât think thatâs going to happen anytime soon, Keisha.â He draws me closer, palming my hips, and I get his point. Pun intended. âI canât seem to get enough of you.â
I slip out of his arms and put some space between us. âChemistry has never been an issue for us, Tristan. I know your lifestyle is important to you, and I donât know if Iâll be able to keep up.â
The truth is, Iâm hopelessly in love with a man who hasnât given me any indication that he will ever want a real relationship. Nothing has changed on that front. He still just wants just a Dominant/submissive relationship, which might enjoy a longevity his other arrangements havenât had, but it will eventually end.
Can I really do this? I certainly donât think Iâll become any less in love with him over time. Reentering a sexual relationship with Tristan now would be exceedingly counterproductive to the reasons I left in the first place, but I am hard-pressed to make myself walk away again.
Tristan moves so close behind me that I can feel the warmth of his skin, his breath wafting over my ear as he speaks. âWeâll take things slowâagain.â
He runs a finger along my arm, and gooseflesh sprouts like ivy in its wake. I feel a pull toward him that can only be described as magneticâmy body eager to be reunited to his. Even though it could conceivably be more painful for me this time around, Iâm not sure if leaving him again is within the realm of possibility. I canât rationalize staying, but leaving becomes increasingly more difficult with each second I remain in his presence.
I turn to face him. âSlow isnât necessarily going to keep the attacks at bay.â Or guard my heart if he decides heâs done with me.
âWeâll figure out a way to do that together.â He takes me into his arms again. âThese three weeks have been ... just please stay.â
I look into his eyes, and all I want to do at that moment is kiss him senseless. He may not have given me a declaration of love, but somehow I know this is as close as Iâm going to get with a man like Tristan White. For now.
As an answer, I stand on my tiptoes, throw my arms around his neck, and kiss him with everything in me.
***** I received an ARC copy for an honest review *****
Wow just finish reading this book and I love it, when I first started to read this book, I did not know that it was part of a series, but it was all good I enjoy reading it, and I love the characters, I am gone keep this short cause I don't want to give anything away.
I love the chemistry that Keisha and Tristan, have for each other, I really like it how the Kinkiness/Sex when Through the roof, and how Hot it was, I really love it how it was from both point of view, what I like the most is that, The different suspects that it could of been and who it actually turned out to be just threw me for a curve ball. Wasn't expecting that at all.
This is the first book that I read from this author, and I really enjoy it I did say I was gone keep it short cause if I keep writing I might end up giving some spoiler and I don't want to do that , but you really should get to read this book is Hot, the Sex is great and its awesome.
L. V. Lewis is a married, mother of four who lives in South Georgia and works in the Florida Panhandle. A new author who decided stories like Fifty Shades of Grey needed a little more diversity and comedy, penned Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever as a parodied response to those wildly popular books from a woman of color. A voracious reader since Kindergarten, Lewis loves nothing more than to curl up with a good book and a glass of wine. She and her husband are political junkies, a hobby that is time consuming but free. Now that Lewis has teens who think they donât need their parents anymore, she has taken up another time-draining career of writing. However, she is happy to report, for once, her extra-curricular activity costs far less than her husbandâs. Her love for writing is only eclipsed by her love for her family.
