Lacey stood outside of the storefront with Suzette as the truck pulled up in front of the store behind Suzette’s car. It was a nice new Ford pickup crew cab in dark blue with a lot of chrome. As the door opened, she saw the driver get out and, damn, did she lose her breath.
“My God, he’s huge,” Suzette whispered.
He sure was, with big muscles, some tattoos on his arm, and a tight blue T-shirt that showed off more muscles and tan skin. His blue jeans were tight and dusty like he was working. He had a hard expression as he approached, pulling off his sunglasses as he got closer.
“Lacey Brooks?” he asked.
“I’m Stitch’s friend, Stone Slane,” he said and eyed her over. Then he quickly turned away as if he really wasn’t impressed with her body. The man was blind. Wait, she so didn’t need a rebound man.
“Nice to meet you, Stone. I appreciate you getting here so quickly,” she said and he just nodded his head.
“This is the place?” he asked as he walked closer.
“Yes, it is.” She followed him inside, glancing over her shoulder at Suzette, who raised one of her eyebrows as if she wasn’t too impressed with the guy’s attitude.
Lacey checked out his ass and his thighs as he headed inside the place. He was big everywhere. In fact, she felt pretty damn small and intimidated by the guy. Her gut clenched, and she swallowed hard, suddenly feeling uncomfortable. As Suzette touched her hand, Lacey swung around, shocked at how skittish she felt.
“You okay?” Suzette asked her and Lacey nodded her head.
The realtor introduced himself and Stone wasn’t too friendly to him, either.
“So what are you looking for me to do?” Stone asked her in front of the realtor.
She cleared her throat, approached cautiously, and couldn’t seem to put on a tough-girl attitude she was used to doing.
“I’m debating about buying the place to open up an antique shop. I need to know more about any possible plumbing issues and electrical problems. Anything that will give me an idea as to how much to fix it up and whether it’s worth making an offer,” she said, then eyed the realtor over.
“I can assure you that the building has been inspected and is up to code,” the realtor said.
Stone made a noise. “Not really,” Stone said and then began to shoot out all these questions Lacey knew nothing about. She felt sick to her stomach as the men exchanged words and it seemed to her that the place might not be worth the money they were asking.
Stone looked around, disappeared with the agent in the back for quite some time, and then came back to the front.
“Let me talk to my client and see what we want to do,” Stone said and then took her by her elbow to lead her out the door. Lacey felt an immediate bolt of attraction to the man. His hand was huge. She pulled from him and hurried forward. Looking over her shoulder at him, she knew he had seen her fearful expression. She lowered her eyes and him and Suzette joined her by the front of the building.
She locked gazes with his green eyes. The man was hard, older, and definitely experienced. He had a shadow of a beard on his face, too, which added to both his charisma and his attractiveness.
“Okay, so the place needs some work done to it. I don’t know if you have money set aside to fix it up a bit before you buy it. In my professional opinion, it’s a good building, great location, but the price is high for the work it needs.”
“Well, how much would it cost for you to fix the problems?” she asked him. Lacey was staring to worry that this new business venture might not work out for her after all. Just like everything else in her life lately.
“I couldn’t rip anything down since you don’t own it, but there could be a number of issues once the old sheetrock is torn down and new sheetrock installed.”
“Can you give me a ballpark figure? I want to do some cosmetic stuff, and maybe new sheetrock, but salvage the old trim and old wood floors. You know, refinish them and keep that charm and curb appeal,” Lacey told him holding his gaze.
“Definitely. It’s going to be an antique store so that look will add to the appeal,” Suzette added.
He eyed Suzette and then licked his lower lip. She nearly moaned, he looked so damn sexy. She had to give herself a mental kick. She didn’t need more male trouble. Men were off limits for quite some time. She was focusing on herself.
“Anywhere in the ballpark of 10-30.”
“Thousand?” she asked, completely shocked.”
“Could be more or less, depending on your tastes. And you seem like you may have expensive tastes.”
“Yeah well, not on the budget I set. I can’t make an offer on this place. Not unless he comes down thirty thousand.”
Stone held her gaze. “How about twenty thousand? Could you swing it if you make an offer like that?” he asked.
“Okay, I know you don’t know me, but you know Stitch. We go way back. Let me handle this realtor.”
“No, I can’t let you do that. It’s my deal. I don’t need a man to handle it for me,” she said with attitude.
“Hey, sweetheart, do you want to snag this place for a good price or do you want in over your head? I do this work for a living. I know my stuff. Let me do the talking. I’m not stepping on your toes, just look at it as if I’m guiding you.”
Lacey couldn’t help but feel that twinge of sexual attraction as well as annoyance. It was like nothing she’d felt before. She was attracted to his personality and his body for obvious reasons, like the muscles, the flat abs, the power in his tone of voice, but also she felt annoyed. He got under her skin. She glanced at Suzette, who gave her a wink and then pulled her lower lip between her teeth. Suzette knew her so damn well.
“Fine. Let’s do this. What have I got to lose at this point, besides my sanity and complete savings account?”
Louie got up and Stone moved Lacey to the side of him, her legs over his lap and her head against the couch. He caressed her cheek and she blinked her eyes open to look at him, Louie, and Junior watching her.
“Invite us to stay the night. Let us make this relationship official,” Stone told her and held her gaze. Her heart pumped fast and hard against her chest. She wondered if she was making a mistake, but it felt so right, so good. She looked at Louie and Junior and Stone. They would accept it if she told them she couldn’t. They wouldn’t give her a hard time but would respect her wishes. But truth was, she didn’t want to be alone. She hated being alone in the dark, but she also felt so many emotions right now. She only cared about being with these men.
“Stay with me tonight,” she whispered, and all three of them smiled. Stone leaned down and kissed her. She wrapped her arms around his neck as he lifted her up off the couch and carried her to her bedroom.

Stone set Lacey down on the floor in front of her bed. His brothers began to get undressed and as he removed his shirt, Lacey reached for his belt and pants. Her hands felt incredibly good against his skin. He was sensitive to her touch, his cock so fucking hard he would cringe when removing his pants.
“Wait,” he said as he reached for his wallet and pulled out a condom.
She took it from him as she held his gaze, and he lowered his pants.
Once he stepped out of them, he cupped her cheeks and kissed her deeply. He moved her backward to the bed and knelt between her thighs as he continued to explore her mouth. He kissed along her neck and he heard her breath grow rapid.
“You’re so big and filled with muscles.” She ran her hand along his pectoral muscles and he flexed his muscles as he pressed his cock against her thigh.
She looked a little concerned about the size of his cock as she lowered her eyes and it fed his ego. It made him want to please her and erase any memory of any other man she had sex with.
“You’re going to be all ours.” He ran the palm of his hand along her thigh to her pussy and pressed a finger to her cunt. His brothers eased down next to her on either side and cupped her breasts.
“All ours, Lacey. No one else’s,” Junior told her. She scanned over their bodies and gulped. “You’re all so big, so beautiful,” she said and pressed a hand to Junior’s chest and her other hand to Louie’s cheek. She looked at each of them.
“You’re the beautiful one. Let me in, baby. Let my brothers and I make love to you.”
She opened the foil wrapper and Junior took the wrapper and tossed it over his shoulder as she eased the condom over Stone’s cock. He winced and gritted his teeth at the fell of her hands over his cock.
“Fuck, you’re killing me.”
Once it was in place, she reached up and cupped his cheek.
“Take me, Stone. I want you to.”
He leaned down and kissed her mouth, then along her neck, her breasts, suckling a nipple then tugging on it. She squirmed beneath him but he enjoyed arousing her, making her so needy and wild she only had thoughts of his cock filling her cunt and claiming her fully. She gripped at his hair as he moved lower, squeezed her hips, then licked over her pussy lips.
Junior pulled one thigh wider as he caressed it with his palm and Louie pulled her other thigh wider opening her fully to Stone’s ministrations. He licked along her pussy, plunging his tongue between the folds and finally getting a taste of what his brothers had earlier. The sight of their large hands against her tan skin aroused him further and he knew he couldn’t wait any longer. But he thrust a finger in and out of her cunt as she moaned and shook above him. Junior suckled one breast while Louie suckled the other. It was all too much. Having Lacey, her extra-large breasts, her firm belly, and muscular thighs all before her like a feast. He gripped his cock and pressed the tip to her cunt as he held himself above her. Their gazes locked and he eased into her pussy, getting lost in the tightness and warmth of her depths while also getting lost in the bold ocean-blue eyes that stared at him with trust and sweetness. In that moment, as he eased deeper, rocked his hips until he was fully seated within her, he promised himself to always protect her and be the man she deserved.
