Finally, she parted her lips. “Why didn’t you tell me about her?”
The softness in her voice and yearning in her eyes provoked me to run my hand along her jaw line. She didn’t flinch. I looked deep into her soulful green orbs. “Because she means nothing to me, tiger. She’s ancient history. I didn’t want to upset you.” And I didn’t want to go there.
She fluttered her long-lashed eyelids. My cock tensed. I had to claim her. Let her know she was mine.
“There’s only you, baby. I totally always love you. Only you. Every waking minute of the day. You do things to me no other woman ever has.” I put her hand to my cock. It was hard as rock. And then I put her other hand to my heart. “My heart only beats for you. You own it. No girl has ever owned my heart except you. I want you to believe me.”
“I do.” Her voice was a whisper.
The sweet innocence of her voice aroused me. I pushed my hips against her, pressing my erection firmly against her center.
“You’re the only one I want to fill. I want fill your mouth. Fill your pussy. And fill your heart.” Impulsively, I crushed my mouth against hers and gave her a fierce, passionate kiss as my hands slid down her pajama bottom. I fiddled with my pants button and fly, and out sprung my cock ever so ready for her. With the help of my hand, I shoved it inside her, surprised she was so hot and wet. Placing my palms against the wall for support, I began thrusting into her forcefully, filling her to the hilt, while I tongue fucked her mouth and groped her tits. Groans escaped her throat and her breathing grew ragged. I picked up my pace, making my thrusts harder and faster. Her breaths came in pants and her groans became whimpers. She pressed hard against my shoulders, pushing me away and forcing me to free her mouth. Her face looked heated and impassioned. So fucking beautiful.
“Blake,” she panted out. “Is this makeup sex?”
“If. You. Think. We. Had. A. fight,” I grunted back with each successive, hard, long stroke.
“I’m not sure.”
“Just shut up and let me fuck you.” God. No one felt as good as my tiger.
“Okay,” she groaned, letting me reclaim her mouth.
Without losing contact, I lifted her up against the wall. Wrapping her legs around me like a warm pretzel, she splayed her hands on my ass, and rocked her hips forward to meet my thrusts. Her whimpers morphed into shrieks, and I knew she was close to coming. Hard. I wanted to hear my tiger roar my name. So, I released her mouth again, not caring if she woke up the neighbors.
“Come for me, tiger,” I urged, banging her into submission.
“Blake!” she cried out as she let go, her body shuddering inside and out with spasms of ecstasy. She clung to me as my own epic climax took hold of me, my load bathing her with sweet bliss.
Catching her breath, she rasped, “We should fight more often.” I smoothed her damp hair while she held on to me. “Nah, baby. We should just talk more often.” And then I smacked my lips against hers so she couldn’t say another word.
I have been a fan of this series from the first book (That Man 1, That Man 2, That Man 3), and this installment in the series is just as well-written as the first three. There are a few laugh out loud moments, but for the most part, this book is more emotional. Not in a bad way, but it's easy to feel the apprehension and anxiety that Jennifer is experiencing, both with the success of the television show for the network, in addition to the wedding planning, that apparently she has no say in. It doesn't help when there are not one, but two ex-significant others who are trying to stage a comeback.
But for me, the biggest surprise in this book is how much Blake has matured since the beginning of the series. I'm not going to spoil anything, but I found it refreshing how he handled a couple of different situations. And hooray for Chaz for not bowing down to the wedding planner about the dress.
Now this book does end on a cliffhanger, and I cannot wait to see how this will all play out.
