Athena arranged the loose curl of her bangs back into place and, with one last look in the mirror, turned to face Davie.
“How do I look?”
He stared pointedly at her breasts. “Naked.”
“Stop being a prude. Now, seriously, how do I look?”
“Like trouble. Now could you go change so we can leave?”
She blew out an exasperated breath. “Could you stop telling me what to do? Since you won’t pay me a real compliment, I’ll just take that frown of yours as one. So thank you, Davie, for telling me that I look beautiful tonight.”
His dark brows drew together even tighter. “You don’t need me to tell you that. You know you’re beautiful. I know you’re beautiful. And too damn sexy for your own good.”
So why don’t you say it?
To his credit, Davie always made her feel desirable. There was always a simmering hunger in his silver-gray eyes whenever he looked at her, and it didn’t matter what she had on. Even after a year, the sex between them was still hot and heavy.
Yet, as much as he showed her how much he loved and wanted her, she still craved to hear the words too.
“You don’t need to go flaunting to everyone in Vegas what I get to sleep with every night,” he pointed out.
Suddenly, she recognized the uncertainty he tried to keep hidden behind a wall of annoyance. She recognized it because she’d felt the same way when she had to endure women fawning over him at any given moment. Athena reached out and slowly stroked the side of his neck.
“Is that what this is about? You think I’m going to let someone sweep me off my feet and away from you?”
His indecision was swiftly replaced by a desire that flared brightly in his eyes as she continued her light caress. She knew all his hot buttons and didn’t mind pushing them. At least for a little while.
“Don’t worry, baby. No one’s taking me away from you.”
Without warning, he looped his arm around her waist and pulled her to him. “Damn right.”
She curled her arms around his neck and pressed a light kiss on his jaw then gently nipped at him. He groaned with pleasure.
“What are you doing?”
“Just giving you a preview of what you’ll be getting tonight,” she murmured, passing the tip of her tongue over the same spot.
His arm tightened around her. “What if I can’t wait that long?”
“You’ll have to.”
She wiggled against him, trying to get free, but was enjoying the feel of his hard chest rubbing against her breasts too much to really put in much effort.
“Stop that,” he growled, tightening his hold. But despite his protest, and the fact that they would be running late if they didn’t leave now, he pressed his lips against her neck.
She trembled from the pleasant sensation. “I knew you were going to do that,” she breathed.
“Oh, yeah? What about this?”
His hand slid under her skirt and between her thighs. He ran the pad of his finger along her crotch before pushing the delicate material of her panties aside. He slipped his broad finger into her and she leaned into him for a moment, relishing the pleasure coursing through her.
“Davie…we don’t have time for this.”
“We always have time for this…” ♥
