“What the fuck is wrong with you?” Sebastian’s growl was followed by a cold blast of air that chased its way into the loft the second the door flung open.
Jonah fisted his hands as his guard elevated. He had expected to hear from Sebastian, but he hadn’t expected him to drive to Dallas to confront him. He shot to his feet. “Why are you here? You could’ve called and saved yourself the trip.”
Sebastian slammed the door and closed in on Jonah as if prepared to fight. Good. Bring it on. “Do you have any idea what pain you’re causing Brie right now?”
Jonah clenched his jaw. He knew it would be hard. He was suffering too. Raking his fingers through his hair, he collapsed back onto the sofa.
“I know. I’m a dick.”
“You’re damn right you are. What the hell’s going on, Jonah?”
I wish I knew. Leaning forward to rest his elbows on his knees, he covered his face with his hands. “You shouldn’t have come. You have a family to take care of.”
For a long moment, he could feel Sebastian’s eyes on him, could almost feel the gears turning in his mind. He lowered his hands and looked to his brother.
“They’re your family too,” Sebastian said, his expression curious. “I thought you knew that.”
“Brie is your wife. Kayla and Kerri are your daughters. I’m just the extra dick in the bedroom and the goofy uncle who occasionally babysits.”
Sebastian scoffed, his brows dipping to the bridge of his nose. “Are you on your period or something? What kind of shit are you spewing?”
Jonah groaned as he stood to face his brother. “Look, you and I both know that Brie is more yours than she will ever be mine. I can’t believe I ever thought—”
“Thought what?” Sebastian asked sharply.
“I can’t believe I ever thought I could fit into your world. That I could ever be enough for her.”
Sebastian’s frown grew. “What are you talking about? You’re my brother. Brie’s mate. And you’ve always been more of a father figure to the girls than just an uncle.”
“Second mate,” he corrected. “Second to you. Second to you in everything.”
Sebastian’s frown eased, his gaze searching. “You and Brie are married,” he reminded Jonah.
“A pack marriage can be undone.” The words didn’t seem real as he spoke them. But strangely, as he faced his brother, they slipped out with ease.
Sebastian’s chest flared with the deep inhalation of his breath. “Not if I don’t agree to it.”
Jonah growled, his wolf clawing from the depths of his soul. He wanted to laugh. “Why wouldn’t you want to? Without me, you could have her all to yourself. You could have the perfect little family. You, Brie, Kayla, and Kerri.” He did laugh. But it wasn’t a sound filled with joy. “You could have a litter. None of which you’d have to share with me.”
The silence that followed was deafening. “Why are you saying this?”
Jonah paced the floor. He knew his brother wouldn’t just let him walk away without answers. Why did Sebastian care that Jonah wanted out? Did it really matter? He was handing Sebastian the bow on top of his perfect little family. Why resist?
“Look, I thought I could handle being the third wheel, but I can’t. I can’t stomach watching your perfect little world anymore. I’ll never be what she needs.” He closed in on his brother. “You are.”
I’ll never be as good as you. I’ll never be able to offer her more than what I already have.
“That’s not true, Jonah, and you know it.” He furrowed his brow. “Is this because of our deal?”
Deal? Did he want to rub in his face that he couldn’t even fuck her right to get her pregnant? “I wanted this to work, but it’s not. I’ve given it five years, and the only one miserable is me. I’m getting out before I can’t.”
“This is ridiculous. You’re crushing Brie’s heart.”
He gritted his teeth. I’m crushing my own. “She’ll get over me. She has you.”
Sebastian’s mouth opened and then closed.
“You can’t tell me that having her all to yourself doesn’t make you even a little happy.” He grinned, mockingly. “I’d be fucking ecstatic. If I were you, I’d be racing home to her, right now.”
The muscles in Sebastian’s cheeks flexed under strain as his eyes narrowed. “You should’ve come to me sooner.”
“I never came to you at all, remember. I don’t need your pity or advice. I needed—” He held his tongue. As the words were about to rush from his mouth, he didn’t want to say them. He needed a family of his own. He needed to feel he wasn’t second best.
Like that’s ever going to happen.
“I need Brie to see me as more than just your brother.”
“She does, dumbass,” he emphasized with attitude. “If you can’t see that, then you’re more screwed up than even I can help you with.” Sebastian growled, slamming the door behind him as he left the loft.
Brie’s breath hitched as the tips of Jonah’s fingers grazed over the skin of her bare hip, then he wrapped his hands around her waist and shifted her up enough to take her mouth in a scorching kiss. His probing tongue forced her mouth open, and she tasted him, primal and raw. His wolf was teasing her thoughts, just as his body tormented her. His beast was howling, excited to be with her.
He broke the kiss and flipped her to her back, away from Sebastian. Then he glided down her body, kissed her chin, the valley between her breasts, and down past her belly button, until her legs were parted and his mouth hoovered over her pussy. He glanced up at her and grinned.
Sebastian seemed to notice as well and slid closer to her, taking her nipple into his mouth, sucking hard enough to blur the lines between pleasure and pain—a place she liked to go with her lovers. They knew what she desired, knew how to take her to the edge in a matter of minutes.
Slowly, they began worshipping her body. Sebastian massaged and tasted her breasts, while Jonah feasted on her pussy, tasting her more thoroughly than she’d ever remembered him doing. Instantly, her hand sought to find Sebastian’s cock. She wanted to stroke him, feel his firmness within her grasp. He hissed against her ear as she teased the head of his shaft with her finger. It was already slick with his seed.
She moaned as Jonah sucked at her clit and inserted a determined finger inside her tight sheath, then another. But it was when he teased the entrance of her anus that she knew her night would be filled with wicked desires and pure satisfaction.
“Yes,” she cried, unable to hide her excitement. “I want that. Oh, yes, I want that.”
Jonah chuckled, looking up at her. “I can tell.” He plunged his fingers in and out of her, her slick heat coating his fingers. She quivered as another finger pressed past the tight ring of her ass.
A fluttering sigh parted from her lips. “Yes,” she hissed again, rolling her hips with the pressure of his fingers, his mouth still fastened to her clit.
After a few seconds, her world splintered and she came. Hard.
“That’s it, baby,” Jonah praised. “Beautiful.”
Once the spasms of her release subsided a bit, Jonah moved off the bed and Sebastian crawled between her feet. With her legs still spread, he dragged his tongue over her pussy, tasting her. A jolt of heightened sensitivity had her grabbing hold of his hair to keep him from doing that again.
He growled at her, giving her clitoris a gentle tap. “My pussy,” he told her, and she quickly released him.
“I’m too sensitive,” she explained. “It tickles.”
He palmed her pussy, rubbing slowly over her tingling nub. “Get on your knees, Brie,” Sebastian ordered.
She did, rolling onto her belly and shifting to her knees. Sebastian’s hard cock greeted her ass, teasing between her legs. Jonah lay flat on the bed with his legs draped over the side. Brie adjusted to straddle his hips and Sebastian moved to stand behind her.
Jonah caressed the flesh at her hips and waist, gliding up to massage her breasts, swiping a gentle thumb over the erect beads. Before she could breathe, Sebastian was nibbling on the globes of her ass, licking and spanking, until her skin grew hot. Then, he spread her wide, slipping his tongue along the slick seam.
She gasped as he probed inside her pussy and circled his tongue around her anus. The sensation was sinfully good. She opened her legs farther, sinking downward. She gripped Jonah’s cock and fed it inside her, seating him as deep as he could go.
Jonah groaned as she rolled her hips, all while Sebastian continued to pleasurably torture her ass. She moaned as he slid one then two fingers inside her, stretching her, preparing her for his cock. A shiver rocked her as a third finger was introduced.
“Oh, yes,” she cried, arching back. “Feels so good.”
Jonah rolled up to take her nipple into his mouth, breaking the connection with a solid popping sound. She quivered with delight as cool lubricant glided over the crease of her ass. When the pressure of Sebastian’s cock pressed against the ring of her ass and slowly worked its way inside her, she held her breath. For far too long, she’d waited for this moment, had craved it like the air in her lungs.
When Sebastian was fully inside her and began to move, she opened her eyes to see the euphoric pleasure plastered all over Jonah’s face. He’d missed this too. The feeling of being truly connected. There was no other sensation in the world like it and there never would be.
