When we entered our bedroom, we were both in a state. Giorgio cursed, closing his eyes for a moment until his breathing calmed. He was taming his response to me. Could it be we were on equal footing when it came to our passion for each other?
With confidence, Giorgio approached. He placed my hands on his shirt. “Undress me first,” he bid, voice hoarse, mouth a tease away from glancing my forehead.
Soft lips journeyed to my right ear, and I leaned into him, needing the pressure. “Take your time,” he murmured, his sensual intent touring my erogenous zones from the inner whorls of my ear detouring at my peaked breasts before reaching its —my tingling nether regions.
“Make me burn.” His final directive inflamed me.
Air swooshed into my lungs, a reminder I had to breathe, even after Giorgio stunned my respiratory system. A futile effort to control my trembling hands and legs followed. The wild, smoky smell of his pheromones swamped me in a sea of need.
He was toying with me, directing our play to get me to succumb before he did. Well, I had promised him a performance, and I’d be darned if I phoned it in. Arousal was double and seduction was a two-player game.
I Giorgio’s shirt buttons, instead sliding my hands on a slow glide down his torso, a phantom stroke in the wake of my blunted fingertips.
I walked behind my breasts pressed against his back. My fingers engaged in a game of indecision; fondling a shirt button before abandoning it; toying with his pants zipper then moving on to his belt buckle; button, zipper and buckle still in place.
I smiled when an impatient growl slipped through his self-control. He made a grab at my hands. I evaded by plunging them down his waistband. He froze mid-grab, his focus on my proximity to his attention seeking appendage.
I withdrew his shirttail. Taking pity on him, his labored breathing a clear sign I was, in fact, making him burn, I undid his shirt. My fingertips slowly stroked, in aimless patterns, before finally divesting him of it.
I circled back around to his front, his torso struck the perfect balance of lean and muscle. With a sly grin, I grasped his belt buckle and lowered myself to my knees.
His breath played a staccato beat, his pupils and his hands fisted until his knuckles turned white. The air filled with anticipation. Giorgio’s eyes shouted at me, asking whether I would use my mouth and undo him or leave him ungratified.
