*Sisterhood Review Bundle* EL DIABLO by M. Robinson @AuthorMRobinson

by M. Robinson

I was ruthless.
I was feared.
I had sacrificed. Myself. Her. Everything...

Living in a world where I was worth more dead than alive was a choice. I was a bad man, never claimed to be anything else. I’ve done things I’m not proud of. Seen things that can’t be unseen. I’ve caused pain that I can’t undo.
It was all my choice.
Every decision.
Every order.
Right and wrong never mattered.
Until her.
She was under my protection, until she became my obsession.
But who was going to save her...

From. Me. The devil himself.

Fate brought us together. Destiny destroyed us.

STANDALONE. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Full-length novel.


Review by Becky Rendon

"Even the Devil was an angel once, Alejandro. It’s only a matter of time until you become El Diablo, too." Words that haunt your mind as you see the making of El Diablo.

Today, I cried for the Devil...twice, three times. It was more than that. Today, I cried for the life he lost.

If you think it's easy to be the villain, you haven't seen it from El Diablo's eyes. Life isn't easy and death is way too complicated. Somewhere in between is El Diablo but hope you never make it on his radar. Good, bad, or in between- you don't want him noticing you.

Alejandro Martinez is not a man. He is a boy. Or he was until one fateful night. But when he becomes a man, he is no longer recognized as Alejandro. No, he is better known as El Diablo.

We all do things for our family. We all have different breaking points. El Diablo just has a different view on how far to go for those he loves.

A twisted tale of lies, loves, and losses that leave you hurting for the bad guy. Never one to be pitied, El Diablo is waiting to unravel it all for you. All you have to do is...one click!

Intense emotions are guaranteed for this heartbreaking tale. It is truly a messy tale but an incredible journey to the truth. Part of you will want to hate it...because well it's El Diablo. But as we all know, it's hard to hate the one you fall in love with. And you will- you will fall for Alejandro Martinez. And slowly and almost imperceptibly you will fall for El Diablo too. When you do remember, this is the most important part....

El es mio! (He is mine)

Enjoy this intriguing tale. It isn't light and fluffy. It isn't a traditional story. This is the real story of Alejandro "El Diablo" Martinez and like his life, it is messy and complicated.

Review by Anne Milne
5 of 5 stars

So we know who he is... He's the devil, but we knew nothing about his past and this book lays it out for us. Told in 4 parts, it's his past, present, and hopefully future.
I love that M took us right back to the start where we get to see the dynamics of his family, what makes him tick, how he went from Alejandro to the man feared by everyone, El Diablo. It's a very raw, gritty story, and it's definitely not fluffy clouds and rainbows. It's death, destruction, and power. We see a boy/man struggling to accept his destiny while trying to retain the love of his sister and his 'one'. We see Briggs arrival in his life and it's poignant and beautiful but desperately sad at the same time.
Then we meet Lexi, sweet strong brave little Lexi. Now, even though I guessed who she was from the start, it didn't detract from the story. I still wanted to know her story and how she would be brought into 'the life'.
At times it's a brutal story. I mean come on, it's El Diablo, you wouldn't expect anything else but it's so beautiful we see a side of him you'd never expect. He's vulnerable, tender, and so loving when he loves and he loves hard. The sacrifices he makes throughout his life only made me love him more. This is hands down my favorite book by M ever. Read it and you won't be disappointed. You may just fall in love with The Devil like me.

Review by Vanessa Renee

I'm truly speechless at the moment. Wow, this book was truly heartbreaking and amazing all at once. This is a standalone, but do yourself a favor and read the good ol' boys series first. You get the whole mystery behind Martinez and it just makes this book a thousand times better in my opinion. I will give no spoilers at all because this book is packed with oh my god and what the bleep moments. I truly had to force myself to keep reading at some parts because I was heart broken or pissed off. I mean all I can say is this book was everything I wanted it to be and so much more. Boy does Robinson throw you some major curve balls. Like, moments where you question everything you think you know. This is definitely a story where you fall for the bad boy, no wait that's not right, you fall for the devil and all his glory. Lexi is an amazing woman and I fell in love with her character right away. She was so strong and truly loves with all her being. She doesn't let anything get in the way of what she wants. This was a beautiful way to answer the cliffhanger from Crave Me. And I loved that we truly didn't know anything until like 90% of the book. Don't be fooled that first 90% is everything you want and you won't be disappointed. I can't get over this book. My mind is still reeling and spinning. So many questions were answered and now you're just left trying to digest it all. Can't wait to see what M Robinson has up her sleeve next! *Reviewed for Sweet Spot Sisterhood*


Review by Sam Lewis
 4 of 5 stars

**This review contains spoilers, read with caution.

El Diablo is the first M. Robinson book I have read. I have to admit that I did not immediately fall in love with this book. Although, the further I read the better it got. I understand the need for laying the groundwork for the story, but it took nearly half the book.

El Diablo is the story of Alejandro Martinez, a crime boss, a.k.a. the devil, and Lexi, a beautiful prima ballerina. Martinez did not choose this life of crime, he was born into it. Lexi had a hard life growing up, ballet was her escape. Their paths cross several times over the years. Eventually, Martinez comes to her rescue.

I would love to say that this is where they fell in love and lived happily ever after, but that's not the case. Martinez hurts Lexi so bad that she takes a job with a ballet company in England. Ten years go by with no contact between the two of them. Then one fateful day, Martinez came to Lexi's rescue again after she was in a bad wreck. Lexi's leg was shattered and so was her career. Martinez brought her back to his home so that she could recover. Again they grew close, but it didn't last. El Diablo spewed so much venom and hurt. Lexi left only to return a month later when news spread that Martinez was settling down and getting married. Lexi was livid. She confronted Martinez, but it backfired when he shared how he knew her before they met and shared secrets of her past. 

On a side note, I didn't care for how the book ended. It was an awkward way to end the book. It seemed like an afterthought as a way to introduce an interconnected standalone.

I received an ARC of El Diablo by M. Robinson in exchange for an honest review. This review is for the Sweet Spot Sisterhood blog. 

*Sisterhood Review Bundle* TORN by Carian Cole

by Carian Cole


*Please note: There is no underage sex in this book. This is a romance.
He’s loved me since the day I was born.
He’s taken care of me.
He’s awakened me.

Tor. My father’s best friend.
Fifteen years older than me, he’s always been my protector.
The one I should never, ever want.
But I was born to be his.

She’s always loved me.
She’s shattered me.
She’s healed me.

Kenzi. My best friend’s daughter.
I held her the day she was born, and I never let go.
She’s forbidden to me. But she’s the only one that really gets me.
We’re slowly being torn apart by everything we love.
Everything we want.
Everything we desire.

And now I want the one thing I can’t have... I want her.


Review by Becky Rendon

Is it too late to order up a Toren for me? I may need to beg the author for my very own. Hot damn, that man is everything.

He is kind, loving, and supportive. He is best friend, champion, and hero. Tor is a protector, sounding board, and hers...

Well, she wishes him to be hers. All it takes is one choice, one moment changes everything. Once that happens, it's hard to ignore. If you try, it will leave you Torn.

Right and Wrong

Two words that are defined differently depending on who wields them. What makes either true?

This story is beautiful, confusing and hard for some I'm sure. But I found it comforting and wish every little girl had that kind of love and devotion in their lives. We might all have been better off.

Wow. Now I need to read The Ash & Embers series. I would love to see more of these characters.

reviewed for The Sweet Spot Sisterhood


Review by Anne Milne

I feel like I've been waiting for ever for this book to come out as soon as I saw the teasers and blurb I was hooked. To me this is a beautiful timeless love story I never once felt their love affair was wrong in any way.
Tor has been in Kenzi's life since birth and Is looked upon as an uncle they have such an intense connection, if you believe in such a thing as soul mates then these two epitomise everything those words mean. When their feelings change you can feel Tor's confusion, he's so determined to do what he sees as the right thing and Kenzi may be young but she knows how she feels and for her Tor is her one. Asher reacts just how you would expect a father up feel, the betrayal he feels is palpable, the questions he asks are exactly what I would ask.
I loved the story and how their new relationship develops, their passion for each other is red hot the characters are real and raw. It's a beautifully written love story.

Torn by Carian Cole is amazing. Definitely a 5 star read. It is so good you won't be able to put it down. Forget the dishes and laundry, they can wait. You need to go get this book NOW! I love the flashbacks and the dual perspectives.

Torn is the story of Toren "Tor" Grace, a tattooed mechanic and Kenzi Valentine, a rockstar's daughter. Tor was 15 when he first fell in love with Kenzi. It was also the day she was born. The thing is, Kenzi's parents, Ember and Asher were his best friends. Over the next 18 years Tor and Kenzi formed an unbreakable bond. Then one night things shifted and they realized they had feelings for each other. It was wrong on so many levels. Hell, he helped raise her, but the attraction was there and it was mutual. It was killing him, how could he fall in love with his best friend's daughter? He fought the attraction for as long as he could until one day he couldn't. How were they going to break it to Asher? Would he understand?

*Book Announcement* WOMANIZER by Katy Evans @authorkatyevans


Womanizer by Katy Evans

Series: Manwhore #5

Release Date: December 5th, 2016

Genre: Contemporary Romance



You've seen the headlines: Womanizing billionaire player! Watch out! Stay away!
We were just two strangers. Facing a forbidden attraction, a chemical connection. Neither of us expected or wanted it to amount to more. But I had never been drawn to a guy the way I was drawn to this one: my brother's best friend, and CEO of the company where I interned.
Even knowing I should stay away, I proved to be too human, after all. The chemistry was amazing. The laughs were incredible. I opened up to him in more ways than I'd opened up to anyone before. But sex was as far as I'd go. Just sex because he was too irresistible. Just sex because I wouldn't be falling for him. Just sex because I'd leave in three months, and I'd like for my brother not to kill me, and for nobody to find out he was my wicked little secret. He wasn't the One. He was just a womanizer. But for a time, he would be mine.

*Sisterhood Review Bundle* UN-SHATTERING LUCY by Terri Anne Browning @AuthorTERRIANNE

(Lucy & Harris #4) 
by Terri Anne Browning


The conclusion to USA Today Terri Anne Browning’s The Lucy & Harris Novella Series.


That was how Lucy Thornton felt in the aftermath of her breakup with Harris Cutter. Her family thought the best thing for her to do was to put the length of the country between her and Harris.

Reluctantly, she went.

The second Harris sets eyes on Lucy again, he knows she hasn’t moved on any more than he has. Realizing that he screwed up, he sets out to prove that they belong together. But the road to un-shattering Lucy is longer and darker than he ever could have imagined.

Review by Anne Milne

I've been waiting patiently for this book since the cliffy at the end of book 3. Exiled from her family, Harris Lucy is struggling, but she's doing such a good job of hiding it that nobody realizes. When she comes home for her graduation, Harris takes one look at her and sees the truth, that she's struggling just as much as him. I love the concept of family in this series, you can feel the love they have for each other, no one who tries to mess with them leaves unscathed. Lucy and Harris really are soulmates, but they have been through so much and Lucy is in a dark place. Can her family and Harrison's love pull her through?
*Reviewed For Sweet Spot Sisterhood*

Review by Vanessa Renee

This is the last book to a four-part novella series. We finally get to know what happens with Lucy and Harris, but man, are you in for a roller coaster! This book is full of emotions. You just want to yell at them both and tell them what they should do. This story is full of ups and downs, and how when it's true love, you don't have the option of moving on or doing what's best for the other person. Harris can't get over what he did even if it was out of his hands and Lucy truly believes his last words to her. Will they be able to come full circle and see what they would be like together for good? You have to read to find out. This story showed so many different aspects of family and friends. They both have amazing support systems that want the best for them. Loved this short series and can't wait to see what's in store for us next. *Reviewed for Sweet Spot Sisterhood *

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00023]

From the New York Times Bestselling author of MISTER O and BIG ROCK, comes a hot & hilarious new standalone romantic comedy…

I’ve been told I have quite a gift.

Hey, I don’t just mean in my pants. I’ve got a big brain too, and a huge heart of gold. And I like to use all my gifts to the fullest, the package included. Life is smooth sailing....

Until I find myself stuck between a rock and a sexy roommate, which makes for one very hard…place.

Because scoring an apartment in this city is harder than finding true love. So even if I have to shack up with my buddy’s smoking hot and incredibly amazing little sister, a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do.

I can resist Josie. I’m disciplined, I’m focused, and I keep my hands to myself, even in the mere five-hundred square feet we share. Until the one night she insists on sliding under the covers with me. It’ll help her sleep after what happened that day, she says.

Surprise—neither one of us sleeps.

And even though we agree to return to roomies-without-benefits, I quickly realize I want more than someone to split the utilities with. Now all I want is to spend every night—and every day—with my gorgeous roommate.

Did I mention she’s also one of my best friends? That she’s brilliant, beautiful and a total firecracker? Guess that makes her the full package too.

What’s a man stuck in a hard place to do?

Let’s be honest, ladies. A good man is a lot like the perfect car. You want a hot body, an engine that purrs, and superior performance under the hood. You probably also crave a ride that can go all night long.

I’m at your service. Come and ride on my Joy Stick…

That's what I like to say to the ladies. Or I would if I were total pig. It's far too easy in this world to strut around like a peacock when you’ve got all these other features in your favor. But just like the custom cars I build with class and sophistication, that’s how I treat my women.

Don’t worry. I absolutely do my best work dirty…both in the shop, and between the sheets. Work and play — that’s what my life has been, and I f&*king love it. I’m completely, 100% driven. Until one woman comes along and throws a wrench in my plans. The one woman I should absolutely, positively never take for a joy ride.

Now that's all I want to do with her…she’s so far off-limits, but that’s exactly where I want to go with her.

Get ready for a wild ride…

“Use those feelings Claire, channel that fear and anger into something positive.” He swept his gaze over my face and looked me straight in the eye. “You’re not a victim, not any more. It’s time to take control and fight back. Not just physically,” he tapped at my temple. “Up here.” His hand glided down my neck and settled over my pounding heart. “And here. Anything is possible.”

Pain. Broken. Fear. They took it all... my body, my soul, my strength... My Matty. I was floating through this life, my face an endless smile for my loved ones so they wouldn’t know the emptiness inside, the coldness that stayed with me. Then the numb faded, I broke from the devil whispering in my ear. I was awake, alert, ready to find my strength. But I wasn’t expecting him... Heat. Desire. Need. My name is Claire - and this is my Spiral. Warning: This book contains explicit sex scenes, graphic language and is intended for mature audiences.

*Sisterhood Review Bundle* BALANCE by Lucia Franco @lucia_franco_

by Lucia Franco


Adrianna Rossi is no stranger to the rigorous demands required of her body. Years of pain and determination make her one of the best. Olympic glory is the ultimate goal, and she'll do anything to achieve it. Even if that means leaving home to attend World Cup Academy of Gymnastics, a training center that serves one purpose—producing champions.

Perfection, precision, and dedication are required of his athletes. When two time Olympian Konstantin Kournakova is persuaded into training the young hopeful, he immediately regrets it. She doesn't come close to his high standards. As the relentless pursuit of her dream keeps her striving, a passion is ignited within him.

Kova's power and domination, coupled with Adrianna's fierce tenacity, reveal there is more for her body to learn. Every interaction can be misconstrued, but there’s no mistaking the darkening of his gaze, the lingering of his touch, or the illicit image of his bare skin pressed against hers. Integrity is on the line. One toe off the beam and their forbidden desires could ruin everything they’ve worked for, throwing it all off balance.

*WARNING: This novel contains explicit content.

Review by Becky Grover
5 of 5 stars

Oh. My. Gosh. This was the first book I have read by Lucia Franco and it did not disappoint! Absolutely genius writing! It challenges your moral compass, temps you with pushing the limits that you wouldn't imagine crossing, and turns you on in the best of ways.... making you want more, yet knowing you shouldn't!

I will skip the synopsis and head straight to my reaction because I can't talk about the plot without just unleashing all the things you should read firsthand. This forbidden-taboo romance is going to make you feel things from a perspective that you never imagined. The dynamics between our lead couple (Kova the 32 y/o coach and Adrianna the 15-16 year-old gymnast) are so intense that you can't "look away." You want to scream at them both and let them be together all at once. They both clearly voice that they know better, yet can't fight their mutual feelings. There were moments when I was angry with Kova and Adrianna both. Other times I felt so badly for them, wishing they could be together. You truly feel in the moment with them, experiencing the turmoil right along with them.

Now, let's talk about the intimate scenes... sweet lord almighty. These were amongst the best scenes I've ever read! Maybe it's the risk and adrenaline of being caught, but the scenes were fantastically written in delicious detail.... they were so heady and intense, I was squirming in my seat! I've been waiting for a book like this for a while!

The gymnastic side of the story was also amazing. I have some gymnastic background as well and I feel like the storyline was not too sports heavy or light. It was just right and necessary to give us the type of relationship between Adrianna and the other gymnasts and coaches, the way Kova and Adrianna handled switching gears in the gym, and the risks of their subtle interactions being noticed by others. We also are able to see how the stress of their relationship affects her performance. Kova also is stressed with inner struggles at home in addition to the mess he and Adrianna have created.

I hope those that read this book read it with an open mind... one that simply allows them to see just how these things happen, and although it is morally wrong, the way such characters may think and feel in this position. Please don't turn it into an opportunity to put anyone under attack for their opinions. remember, it is a book, not a pledge to our feeling it is acceptable in real life.

And on that note, I say, this book is freaking amazing and I want more!

Review by Vanessa Renee

Wow this book is intense. Let me warn you by stating that this is a story about crossing the line of moral boundaries. The connection between Ria and Kova is at times beautiful, intense, frustrating, forbidden and tortuous. There were times where I questioned my own moral compass, because the author truly knows how to write where you no longer feel like you are reading, but actually in the story. I found myself pissed at Kova for so many reasons, but then also wanting him to make a move. Ria is a strong, young woman who is very mature and knows what she wants. At times her age does show through and you're like wait, dang it, she's only 15, and then want to protect her. I must say this book had me back and forth with my emotions and my morals. To me, that is what great writing is all about. I felt connected to the characters and felt like I knew them. I would love to learn more from Kova's pov and see how he felt the whole time. This book was intense and charming. The gymnastics part of the story was exciting and really caught my attention. Not being a gymnast and not knowing much about it, it was wonderful reading about this beautiful sport. I can't wait for the next book. *Reviewed for Sweet Spot Sisterhood *

Review by Anne Milne

Finally, a sports romance with a female lead and not just as the romantic interest. Adrianna is determined to make it to the top as a world class gymnast her goal is to get to the Olympics. Her dad has an old friend, Kova, who is a top coach and enlists his help to train her. Now Kova was not a likeable character to me at first, he's arrogant, demanding, stubborn, and superior, but I fell and fell hard. There's just something about the way he's written that makes you want more. Adrianna comes across as spoilt, her father dotes on her, but her mother seems almost indifferent and jealous of her. As you read, you forget how young she is because she is one determined young woman. You will alternate between love and hate for all the characters even the supporting ones, because they add depth to the story. The author obviously has great knowledge of the gymnastic world. As someone who was in the sport when I was younger, I loved revisiting those old days. The story is well written and characters are relatable. It's sexy, it's thrilling, it's taboo, it's thrilling. Love, love, love it!  *Reviewed For Sweet Spot Sisterhood*

Review by Sam Lewis

*This review is for The Sweet Spot Sisterhood Blog. Read with caution as this review contains spoilers.

OH...MY...GOD! Never in all my years as an avid reader have I ever anticipated the release of a book like I have for Balance. I know this book has been in the works since 2014, but I only learned of it about 9 months ago. I relished any updates. Finally, a few days ago, just before midnight, this gem appeared on my kindle. It did not disappoint. Lucia Franco took the time to do her research. Her passion for gymnastics shines through the whole book.

Balance, book 1 in the Off Balance Series by Lucia Franco, is as riveting as it is wrong. It is a forbidden romance and so wrong has never felt so right! Balance is the story of Adrianna Rossi, a gymnast with Olympic dreams, and Konstantin Kournakova (aka Kova), her new gymnastics coach. She is 15 and he is 32. Yeah, you read that right. Not only is it morally wrong, it's illegal too. It pushes boundaries and might make you uncomfortable, but that is what all great books do. I absolutely loved it.

Adrianna feels like she is an outsider when she joins World Cup Gymnastics. Reagan the "It Girl" sees Adrianna as a threat, especially for Coach Kova's attention. She is in a new town and living all on her own. The only person that truly befriends her is Hayden, a member of the men's team. 

"Desire can be deadly, temptation can be toxic." As hard as Kova tries he just cannot fight the attraction. He knows it is wrong. After several slips, desire and temptation get the best of Ria (Kova's nickname for Adrianna) and Kova, and the forbidden affair begins with innocent touches. Kova internally struggles with how right it feels with how wrong he knows it is. Kova is so hot and cold, it is a wonder we don't have whiplash. I love to hate Kova because of this. Each time they get together they risk both their careers. Did they risk it one too many times?

Are you Team Kova or Team Hayden? Although Hayden is more age appropriate for Adrianna, I am Team Kova all the way! Now I am impatiently waiting for book 2. Lol. And Malysh is my new favorite Russian word! Malysh, Malysh, Malysh! Kova can call me Malysh any day!

“We want you to be her Godfather,” Asher says as he gently lays his newborn baby into my arms. I have to tear my gaze away from her spellbinding eyes to look up at him from the chair I’m cradling the baby in.

“Me?” I repeat, glancing over at Ember in the hospital bed, who beams back at me with a tired, yet genuine smile.

“Yes, you,” they both say at the same time. “If it wasn’t for you, we probably never would have met,” Ember adds, grabbing Asher’s hand. “And we wouldn’t have this beautiful little baby. We know you’ll always protect her.”

“That’s right, man. You’re Uncle Tor now.”

I’m an uncle. And my two best friends are parents. And we’re all fuckin’ under sixteen.

But Kenzi Allyster Valentine would change us all forever. She needed us.

“Wow. I’m honored, guys. No doubt, I’ll always be here for her.”

I kick back the pang that hits my stomach. I didn’t get the girl…but I got something better that I never expected. A gift in the form of a little tiny hand wrapped tightly around my finger, huge eyes like gems staring up into mine like I was the most amazing person in the friggen’ world, and the first glimpse of what I could already tell was going to be a heart-stopping smile.

At that moment, a connection was born. 

That was it.
She owned me.
My niece.
My god-daughter.
The love of my life.

This was written by two authors and just like the main characters they are different but ended up flowing together nicely. Fallon and Justin would seem to be complete opposites and I loved reading about how they develop separately and together as their relationship grows. Fallon's father makes for a great laugh and honestly what most dads would be like. I loved the down to earth setting and how it shows the family bonds. This story truly keeps you completely enthralled. Its mix of humor and drama is beautifully done, where you truly keep reading because you know something good is going to happen, you just don't know what brand of good it is yet. This was my first time reading anything g from both authors and now I'm going to go search for their other books. This was a beautiful collaboration. I can't wait for the next book in this series. * Reviewed for Sweet Spot Sisterhood *

"Holy shit, darling, you’re so wet," he whispers, his excitement showing in his voice. He glides in a second finger and continues his action, leaning down to lick my semi-exposed clit. I didn't think it was possible, but I am getting even wetter, I want more, so much more. The second I start moaning loudly he stops, bringing his mouth back up to mine and kissing me. His mouth smells like me and there is a hint of my juices on his tongue as he kisses me. He briefly slips his fingers inside me, then brings them back out again.

I grunt in frustration and he just grins at me.

"You like that?" he asks cheekily. I just kiss him. Using his left hand, he spreads my soft bare pussy lips, his fingertips teasing my slippery slit. He gently pushes in, then out. 

"Faster," I pant.

I start to moan, all of the Earths air seems to be filling my lungs then spilling right out again. He reaches down and places his wet tongue over my clit as he fucks me with his fingers. I try to spread my legs, but he holds me in place, my hot pussy swallowing his delectable fingers as they go in and slurping as he pulls them back out again. His tongue is adding a different sort of pleasure, lightly probing my clit and teasing it. I run my fingers through his hair and push his head down, he sucks on my little button and I begin grinding against his face and fingers. 

I’m moaning like a mad woman. I haven’t experienced anything like it before. The powerful sensations are driving me crazy, he rams his fingers in and out and I can tell he is incredibly turned on because he’s getting rough with it, which adds to the pleasure he is giving me. 

"Ohhhh! Myyyy! Goddddd!" I shout as I dig my nails into his scalp. he keeps finger fucking me. He positions himself so he can give it to me harder, faster.

"JUSTIN!" I moan. His movements get quicker and he is making little noises that are inflaming the pleasure I’m feeling. He adds pressure to my clit and rubs it with a sense of urgency. 

The feeling is amazing, I feel like I have died and gone to Heaven. Instinctively I start to grind harder on his face and fingers. I feel the pleasure build up in my pussy. We are still picking up speed, hard and rough. I am moaning uncontrollably again. Pure ecstasy.

“Ohhh. God, Justin! That’s it! Oh. Fuck. I’m going to come!” I break into a million tiny pieces. Justin laps at me till I quit shaking then makes his way back up the bed to me. He lays beside me, pulling me to him and kissing me on the head.

“That was all for you, darling. Just for you,” he whispers as I tremble in his arms.

“Just… For me…” I whisper as my eyes grow heavy and I drift off to sleep.
