So here she was, edgy and needy. So excited she was afraid she’d be a useless
lay because she’d come like a rocket. And she wanted to be the best he’d ever had.
Wanted him to want her even a fraction as much as she wanted him.
Watching him play with his friends, watching as he’d been hammered time and again for
his inattention and then watching those spurts of power and speed had proved he was
in some damn shape. All hills and hollows and oodles of stamina. And now she knew
how hard the muscle was cloaking that tall, angular frame. She wanted everything he’d
bring to bed.
When they reached the parking lot, he dragged her straight to his car. “We’ll get yours
later.” All during the five-minute drive to his apartment, his hand remained on her thigh,
anchoring her there, claiming her in a way. Something that kept her hot.
Moira waited silently beside Coop as he fumbled with his keys at the apartment door.
Her whole body felt tight and hard. And she was shivering despite the heat.
He opened the door, shoved it wide and then stood back to allow her inside.
She stepped over the threshold. The soft bottoms of her flip-flops snicked on the floor,
the sound echoing in the empty space. She glanced left into a bare living room, dark
blond bamboo floors that looked dusty, a bundle of brown packing paper sitting square
in the middle of the floor. “Wow. She cleaned you out.”
“Doesn’t matter.” A muscle worked at the edge of his jaw, tensing.
She stepped toward him, reaching up to soothe it, hoping the tension was for her, not
that other woman. “You said she left a bed.”
His gaze flickered toward the ceiling. “There’s not any sheets or pillows.”
She arched a brow. “Baby, they’d only get in the way.” Taking a deep breath, Moira
turned and lifted her T-shirt over her head. She let it fall from a fingertip as she began
walking slowly toward the wooden staircase, Coop on her heels. She left her flip-flops
at the bottom of the stairs and reached behind her to unclasp her bra. Midway up the
staircase, she tossed the bra over her shoulder and smiled when she heard a slow
inhalation, knowing he’d caught it and was sniffing at her perfume.
She wagged her hips, exaggerating their sway even as she undid the snap of her jeans
shorts and pushed them halfway down her hips. At the top of the stairs, she paused, let
them drop and then glanced over her shoulder.
He stared back, his glance sweeping over her ass, crushing her bra in his fist. Again, his
sweatpants stretched over his erection.
“Which way?” she asked.
He jerked his chin to the left.
When she turned back and strode toward the door on the left, she felt fingers scrape the
waistband of her panties. The elastic stretched and then gave, and he tore them away.
Naked now, she walked faster as her chest rose and fell in deep, excited swells.
She walked into the room. There were no curtains hanging from the brass rods. Sunlight
gleamed between the slats of the blinds. She noted the bed with its bare mattress, a
closet with clothes spilling out onto the floor. Again, she glanced at the bed. Although
the top looked pristine, it felt dirty that they’d fuck on a naked mattress. Their fluid would
sink into the pale cream fabric. And he didn’t care.
How did she want this to begin? She knew she needed him. Needed to feel the stretch
of him quickly because her knees were shaking, her chest and arms shivering. But she
didn’t want to be in charge. Wanted him to take control.
Moira crawled onto the mattress and lay down on her belly. She pulled her hair to one
side and stared at Coop. He was still standing in the doorway, curling his fists at his
sides. The look in his eyes was predatory, feral. He needed a bath. Sweat glistened on
his exposed skin. Dirt smudged his cheeks and arms. There were bits of grass on his
clothes and hair.
The sight of him made her nipples so aroused she pushed up slightly to rub her chest
on the bed side-to-side as she stared back at him.
At last, he moved, taking a step inside the doorway. “Aren’t you going to show me?”
Coop said, his voice silky and deep.
“Show you what?”
“What you want fucked?”
