Beneath These Lies (Page 32)

“You want this, duchess?”

Nodding was all I could offer in response. My thoughts were short-circuiting at the sight.

“Good, because you’re going to take it all.”

A rush of slickness hit my panties, because I didn’t go commando like Rix, and the remnants of my patience melted.

“Now. Please.”

I spread my legs, and realized I wasn’t even close to naked. My blouse was halfway unzipped, my skirt was still intact, and my panties were in place.

“You don’t look ready to take me, duchess. And besides, I’m going to taste that perfect little pussy before I fuck it.”

I was still trying to kick-start my brain to decide what exactly I should do to move this process along and get to the part where Rix’s body was touching mine, when he dropped to his knees and spread my legs wide, shoving my skirt up to my waist.

Today I’d gone bare-legged, with only a thong under my skirt. A rumble from Rix clued me into the fact that he approved. A lot.

“Red. Wasn’t the color I was expecting, but fuck if I don’t love it.”

Those were the only words he spoke before he tugged my panties to the side. He lowered his face and paused.

“Fuck, you’re dripping, duchess. You want me, and I fucking love that I can see it. Soaked from only a kiss. I haven’t even had my mouth on those tits of yours.”

Actually, he hadn’t even seen my tits, but I wasn’t about to point that out either. I just wanted him to get to what he was about to do.

I didn’t have to wait another five seconds before he buried his face between my legs and began lapping at my pussy, licking up all the slickness his kiss and his words had caused.

The thought brought a giggle to my lips, and Rix stopped and looked up.

“No. Don’t stop,” I ordered, my hands going to his completely buzzed head, and uselessly trying to push it back down between my legs. Rude? I didn’t care. I cared about his mouth being on my pussy, and that was it.

“I’ll get right back to eating this pussy as soon as you tell me what the giggle was for.”

Fuck it. I didn’t care. Whatever would get him back to what he was doing most expediently was all that mattered. I had no shame when it came to this. My orgasm was going to come fast and hard, and I wanted it right now.

“I was thinking it was your mess, so it was only right you cleaned it up. You got me wet. There you go. Back to what you were doing. Please.”

The words were a mess of awkward, embarrassing, and jumbled, but I was beyond caring. If he decided he didn’t like it and wanted to stop, I was pretty sure I could develop some crazy upper-body strength to get his head back down to where it belonged.

“I like that. Now hold on, baby, because I’m not stopping until you come all over my mouth.”


Rix buried his face back where it belonged and didn’t waste a moment before delving between my pussy lips and finding my clit. My hips bucked against his mouth, and then bucked harder when one blunt, thick fingertip circled my entrance and teased.

Oh Jesus. Sometimes you forget the old the size of the hands and feet being good predictors of cock size, and for Rix, that would have been a dead giveaway. His hands were enormous, and if he tried to slide two fingers inside me, I wasn’t sure they’d fit.

But the one finger slipped inside effortlessly, made easier by the slickness he’d caused, and whatever he did with that finger in combination with what he was doing with his mouth on my clit caused near-immediate detonation.

I didn’t even realize I was making noises until the words “Please, now, oh God” echoed off the walls of his room. And then the scream ripped from my lungs with the orgasm that hit me in a wall of pleasure.

My hands dropped to his shoulders, gripping and clinging as his name fell from my lips over and over while the orgasm kept rolling through my body. My hips bucked of their own accord, seeking more and then backing away. It was almost too much, but I couldn’t help but want more and more and more.

Wherever this man had learned this particular skill, they needed to bestow some kind of honorary doctorate on him, because he was a master. A maestro even. My brain ran a million miles an hour, and all of those thoughts centered on—if he’s this good at oral, how good is he at everything else?

Rix lifted his head and stared down at me before taking a step to the side and pulling open a drawer on the nightstand, retrieving a condom packet. When he lifted it to his teeth, the enormity of what I was about to do hit me.

He’d told me he wanted this as payment for returning Trinity safe and sound, and she still wasn’t. I hadn’t even demanded an update yet. Not to mention I had a date with another man tonight. What the hell was I doing?

I couldn’t. Hands shaking, I pushed up to a sitting position on the bed and smoothed my skirt down. My movements clearly telegraphed my intentions, and Rix paused in his task.

“What the fuck?” His voice was deep and rough. “You get yours and then decide that’s all you want?”

His silver gaze drilled into mine, and I had to look away before I spoke. “I—I can’t do this.”

“This ain’t a matter of can’t. It’s a matter of don’t want to.”

I shoved a hand in my tangled hair and attempted to smooth it into place. “I’m sorry. I . . . I really can’t. This isn’t me. I don’t do this.”

Rix tossed the condom packet on the nightstand and reached for his pants. He pulled them on roughly before speaking. “I don’t think you have a clue who you are, but it’s your loss, duchess.”
