Excerpt:

 

Reeve smirked—he loved it when I begged—but he didn’t take me where I wanted to go. Instead, with his fingers pinching my chin, he twisted my face so that my cheek pressed against the glass.

“Look,” he said in reverence.

The mirror ran the whole wall behind me then wrapped around the vanity so, facing this direction, I could see our reflections in the glass, half eclipsed by steam from the shower. He let go of me long enough to wipe the fog then resumed his grip on my jaw. I stared, transfixed by the sight of his cock driving into me over and over.

With my focus where he wanted it, Reeve rearranged my legs, bringing one foot up to brace on the counter and propping the other in the sink. Now I was angled so that my cunt could better be seen in the mirror. It was naughty and erotic and I couldn’t stop staring.

“Look at that,” he said again, his fingers jabbing into my skin. “The way you let me use you is so beautiful.”

Beautiful. It was beautiful. The way he had me spread out awkwardly across the bathroom sink, naked while he was still clothed—it was vile and wicked and oh, so beautiful.

“I can’t control myself when I’m inside you.” His voice was ragged and threadbare. “I want to tear you apart. I want to rip you to shreds.” He moved both of his hands to grasp my thighs, tilting my pelvis so that his thrusts hit even deeper. “I want to destroy you. Want to fuck you to pieces. Want to shatter you. Want to break you.”

His awful, wonderful words set a storm to gather low inside me, and I could tell that this time it wouldn’t back down. I shifted my hands from the counter to his forearms to brace myself for its attack. The movement drew his attention from the mirror to my face.

“Want to break you,” he repeated, his words more of a rumble than actual speech.

“You do,” I said, peering up under heavy lids, my voice a mere rasp. “You do break me. Every time.”

Reeve’s eyes sparked in awe, then the muscles in his neck grew taut and his rhythm stuttered. With a low growl, he froze and spilled into me, his fingers digging so deep into my skin I was sure they’d leave bruises on my thighs.

It was so hot, how he defiled and wrecked me. So hot how he loved to see me devastated. So hot that I joined him in his release. My mouth fell open and my climax took over, coarsely racking through my body. Even with the mirror supporting my back, I was freefalling, spinning with pleasure. Only a thin layer of sweat and steam covered my body, but it felt like I’d been pulled underwater into a whirlpool of bliss.

Reeve put himself away, then watched me as I finished, as if completely enamored with my orgasm. As if completely enamored with me.

It was somewhat disconcerting to feel his eyes so heavy on me. He’d seen me come so many times before, but I’d never noticed him so intent. I lowered my gaze, but he lifted my chin, forcing me to meet his stare head-on.

With a gentle touch, he swept a lock of sweat-drenched hair from my forehead. “Every time?”

He’d been tender with me in the past, but it wasn’t his usual M.O., and it startled me. Moved me as I realized it came from a place of concern.

“Yes,” I answered honestly, because he did break me, every time that he stuck his cock inside me, every time that he made me climax, every time that he touched me. Outside of the moment, when the sex was over and we were people instead of sex-driven beasts, it sounded horrible. Who would want to be broken by her lover? Who would want to be destroyed?

I do. I always did. I longed for it and needed it. I needed him.

I caught his hand and pressed the back of it to my cheek. “It’s the only reason I ever want to be someone who’s put together. So that you can break me all over again.”

About Laurelin:

NY Times & USA Today Bestselling author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender.

This is an insanely intense and thoroughly gripping read that kept me enthralled from beginning to end and made the world disappear around me. I have quickly come to love how well this author writes and the way she weaves these spellbinding tales that are fast becoming an addiction for me that I never want to quit! In the story First Touch, we are introduced to Emily and Reeve and Last Kiss is an exceptionally well written continuation of this so I’d highly recommend reading that one first so you’ll have a better understanding of what’s going on here. Emily is on a life-changing mission to find her missing best friend Amber and it’s during this process that she crossed paths with the sexy and powerful Reeve. Emily has been through quite a lot in her life and as a result carries a pretty significant amount of insecurities and other issues that she’s struggling with. Amber has up until now been the only person in her life that has really been there for her and this is why Emily feels she owes so much to her in return. Emily’s sense of loyalty leads her into some pretty difficult situations and almost seems to cause more trouble for her than necessary and I found myself somewhat frustrated over this part of Emily’s character. Amber is manipulative when it serves her own needs and while reading this I found myself feeling quite protective over Emily and very concerned that she was going to end up hurt in the end. The newly developing relationship between Reeve and Emily is in a fragile state and with everything going on I was anxious over whether they’d be strong enough to make it through these new challenges. Even though I kept telling myself that Reeve could be trusted and wanting so badly for him to prove himself in the end, at several points I must admit that I just wasn’t sure. This holds true for me when it comes to so many different elements throughout this story though and worry and doubt seemed to be the primary feelings evoked in me personally while reading this. That and hope. I really hoped more than anything that it would all work out for them in the end. This author does an amazing job of really making the reader feel an intense and deeply moving connection with her characters and I loved this since it made reading this so much more enjoyable for me. This is an incredibly well written and beautiful story with complex characters that are impossible not to become invested in and this touches on every single emotion to the point that this one will stay with you long after you’re finished reading this. I have most certainly found a new favorite author and I absolutely recommend reading this to anyone, especially those who have been searching for that one story that has it all.
