And he won’t stop until he’s taken control of every inch of her deliciously curvy body… EXCERPT: “You are so fucking sexy,” Noah rasped. “Come here. Come to me.” I got up and crossed the room to him, and he pulled me into his lap. His hand slid up my thigh, pushing my skirt with it. His other hand slid up to the back of my head, and pushed me toward him. “I’m going to fuck you again, Charlotte,” he said. I could feel his cock hard against me, and I moaned. “This time I’m going to fuck you for a long time. Do you think you can handle it?” “Yes,” I breathed. “Tell me you want me to fuck you.” “I want you to fuck me,” I said. “Please, I need you to fuck me.” “Say my name.” He dipped a finger into my mouth and I sucked on it softly, watching his eyes blaze as I did it. “Fuck me, Noah,” I whispered. “Please, I want you to fuck me.” He kissed me then, softly, which was a surprise after all the dirty things he’d been saying to me. His tongue was warm and perfect, his mouth exploring mine, probing hungrily. I pushed myself against the hardness of his dick, but just like he had earlier, he reached out and held my hips, stopping me. “No,” he said. “You don’t get to control this. I do. And we’re going to go nice and slow.” He began to unbutton my shirt, stopping as soon as my breasts were exposed. He ran a finger over my cleavage. “I’m going to explore every single inch of these hot, sexy curves of yours. Do you understand that, Charlotte?” “Yes,” I said. I was dripping now, so turned on that I was afraid I might come without him even touching me. He stood up, his hands grabbing at my ass. I wrapped my legs around him and he picked me up like it was nothing, like I was as light as a feather. I buried my face in his shoulder. I hesitated for a just a second, right before he carried me into his bedroom. If I did this, there was no turning back…
