Until a bunch of bachelorettes mobbed me,changing my life forever.I couldn’t get Andi Slaton, with her red hair, blue eyes, and cotton candy flavored lip gloss out of my head.But when she offers herself to aid the FBI to help me take down the biggest criminal family in Tampa, Florida, my very sanity is put to the test watching her spend time with my arch enemy.She’s everything I want, I will be everything to her.
We will be Evergreen. ***
Flaming red hair was piled on top of her oval face. Her blue eyes stared at me intensely. My gaze fell to her pink, pouty lips. Her lower lip was slightly bigger than her top. My thoughts immediately took a turn into the gutter. I imagined all the ways I could tease those lips, tasting them, the way they would look wrapped around my dick. I kept going with my gaze. Her skin was a sweet cream color. A blue corset wrapped around her petite frame, and a pink tutu with pink and blue checkered socks encased her long legs. Then, the outfit finally ended with “fuck me” black heels. I never would have thought all that combined in one package would be sexy, but, damn, I was all about this cotton candy woman.
“I appreciate you stripping me down with your eyes here, but I have a celebration to get back to, so here, please.”
I looked back up at her face in confusion. Then I realized she was holding my phone out to me.
“I’m an asshole. Thanks,” I told her as I grabbed my phone from her delicate hand.
“Nice to meet you, asshole. I’m Candy Tease tonight. So maybe you aren’t normally an asshole.”
She smiled at me. I found myself wanting to play with her.
“Candy Tease. I can see where you get your name.”
And I wasn’t talking about her outfit. Although I was sure that was what she thought I was talking about. She looked sweet as hell, and I definitely wanted a taste. My dick was throbbing at the thought of just how sweet she was. The sweetest of honey.
“I don’t think you do. It’s actually a secret.” She winked at me.
That was all the warning I had before she gripped my shirt, pulling me toward her and crushing her lips to mine. She moaned against my lips. I groaned. After the initial shock hit me, I gave back to her as much as she was giving me. Her lips tasted sweet, with a flavor I couldn’t place. Those perfect lips parted, and I sure as hell took advantage of that, my tongue caressing hers.
Holy fuck, this woman was amazing!
She suddenly pulled back a bit so that our lips were barely touching. “Cotton candy-flavored lip gloss,” she whispered against me.
Then she did the strangest thing. She turned around and walked away.
What the hell?
I stood there stunned. I could still taste her. No fucking way was I going to let her walk away. She made a turn into a nightclub ahead. I started to follow her, then stopped and pulled out my phone. Those assholes were still being tracked, thank Christ. I pulled up Rex’s number and pressed call.
He answered on the first ring. “What happened?”
“I got mobbed by a group of bachelorettes and lost sight of the targets. Nice work on the tag, by the way.” I laughed remembering him stumbling like a fool.
“Yeah, well, it worked. I’ll keep tabs on our guys. It looks like they’re on the road, going south on 75. Talk to you tomorrow.”
Not much we could do now until they stopped.
With that taken care of, I had some unfinished business to attend to. I walked like a man on a mission. I had one thought driving me. Cotton candy.
We gathered in a circle and started swaying with the beat.
I was having a great time, when Jules moaned, “Oh Lord, I would sell my soul for a piece of that.”
Curiosity coursed through me. I started to turn around to see what guy she was looking at, when hands gripped my waist, bringing me close to a warm, hard body.
I was two seconds away from blowing my shit, when a sexy voice whispered against my ear, “Did you think I would let your sweet fucking lips walk away without another taste? I don’t think so, Cotton Candy.”
I shivered at his words. Whoever this stranger was, I didn’t want him to let me go. His hands gripped me harder bringing me flush with his obvious hard-on.
“I can’t get the taste of your lips off mind. I wonder if you are sweet everywhere. I bet you are.”
He spoke as he ran his nose up the side of my neck. The feeling made me start panting.
Dear Lord, what was this man doing to me?
“Move for me, sweetness.”
My hips started moving of their own accord; my body wanted to please him. I heard a growl of satisfaction from him. My eyes closed, just giving into the feeling of this mysterious, sexy man. I twisted my hips against him, laying my head against his shoulder. My hands slowly crept up and joined his; our fingers entwined against my corset-clad waist.
“What am I going to do with you, sweetness?” he purred against me.
I wanted nothing more than to do dirty things with him. As long as he touched me and kept talking, I was a goner. His lips touched my neck, and I practically convulsed. A moan slipped through my lips. Then someone coughed.
I let go of the man’s hands and turned around to face him. Oh my God, he was so fine. His eyes were dark and flared with desire. He was looking at me like he wanted to take me right then and there on the dance floor. Desire pooled between my legs. If he propositioned me, I wasn’t sure I would say no.
I spoke first, trying to break the spell he held over me. “Um, I have to go.” I was just full of words.
“It would appear so, Andi.” He drew out my name as he spoke, as if he was savoring my name on his lips.
I shifted from one leg to the other. He slowly moved closer. He was like a predator, and I his prey.
“This isn’t the end, sweetness. I will find out the answer to my question.”
I raised my chin slightly, bringing our lips inches from each other. “What question is that?” I whispered.
He growled and kissed my lips with a fever I’d never experienced before him. I wanted to wrap myself around him, feel all the pleasure I knew he could bring.
He slowly eased back and spoke against me. “If you taste as sweet everywhere else.”
He smiled a half-mischievous smile. That same smile made me feel bold. I wanted to accept his challenge.
“You can find out, if you can find me.”
With that gauntlet thrown down, I left him staring at me fiercely as I walked away. I threw a little extra sway in my hips as I passed through the door.
First of all, apologies to the author for missing my blog tour time slot. Life is crazy, but when is it never not?!
As for my review:
Well this was unexpected! I went in reading this book having never read any of Jessica Florence’s previous novels. I was quite impressed with the ease of her writing. It was a pleasure to read. I really enjoy novels that are well written and allow me to cruise through it without getting overcomplicated, or over explaining things. The relationship between Ryder and Andi is a bit cute, if not marred with some tensions and distractions. There is a significant arc to the story that may have had me a little….frustrated However, I think it’s a sign of a solid author, when just a few words can cause the reader to have to pause and think some strong words that can’t be repeated! If it had been a physical book, instead of an e-book I probably would have closed the book for a bit before continuing on! It was an action packed, kismet style, sexy at times, quick read.
I highly recommend this one, (Non-spoiler alert, of course!) especially if you’re a fan of Ed Sheeran!!
