STORY EXCERPT

 

They were cruising down the highway, with only about fifteen minutes left until they got to the military hospital. From the time Marco pulled up to her condominium complex in his black Mustang convertible, revving the engine, she hadn’t stopped smiling or talking. He was very charismatic and sexy, and he even reached over several times to take her hand or to squeeze her thigh. She watched him, taking in the sight of the way his tight blue jeans accentuated his thigh muscles. The man was probably a work of art naked. That thought gave her one hot flash after the next. He also smelled really good, and she realized that denying this attraction was going to be hell, so maybe she shouldn’t bother.

“So what martial arts club to you belong to and train at?” he asked her.

“I was going to Donny York’s dojo for a while, but then it got too crowded and the schedule didn’t fit my work schedule at the time. I tried out Bishops, but I haven’t gone as often as I want to.”

“I know both places.” He pulled off the highway and then down another road.

“You’ll need your ID now to get through the security gate.”

She opened her small purse and got it out as they approached the security gate. They showed their IDs, and two other soldiers checked out the trunk of the car and then complimented Marco on his car before they directed them to parking and the main entrance of the hospital. He looked at her, his eyes gazing over her body as he gave her hand a squeeze.

“What?” she asked him.

“I don’t like when other men look at you and stare. It makes me jealous.”

She swallowed hard.

He released her hand and gave her thigh a little squeeze before he pulled into a parking spot. She could tell he was nervous as he stopped talking to her but held her hand as they walked along the sidewalk. They got to the main desk, received their visitors’ passes, and were directed to the third floor and room number. She gave his hand a squeeze while they were in the elevator.

“I hope he’s really okay and that things weren’t minimized. They hate for me to worry, but I do.”

“I’m sure it will be okay, Marco. Seeing them will help.” She gave a soft smile.

“Thank you for being here with me.” He brought her hand to his lips and kissed her knuckles. They headed out of the elevator, found the room, and he took a deep breath and released it before they walked inside.

Antonia was surprised how nice the room looked. There were some balloons and other things brightening up the place. She locked gazes with a very good-looking man in the bed, with a dark crew cut hair, a bright smile with white teeth, and eyes that brightened up upon seeing Marco and then her. The other good-looking guy by the bed stepped forward, looked from Marco to her, and gazed over her body, making her tighten and feel an attraction.

“Marco, holy shit.” The guy on the side of the bed pulled him into an embrace. These men towered over her big time, and it seemed that the other brother was a little taller than Marco.

“How are you feeling, Felix?” Marco asked and bent down and kissed his brother’s cheek, which she found so endearing.

He stood back up, and the other brother, Memphis, smiled at her and ate her up with his eyes.

“Guys, meet my friend Toni.”

“Toni?” Memphis asked and reached out to shake her hand hello.

“Antonia.”

Memphis licked his lower lip as he held her gaze. “Beautiful.”

Marco placed his hands on her shoulders and pulled her closer.

“Antonia?”

When she heard another deep voice, she turned around to see Eduardo standing there. She was shocked. Marco’s hands tightened.

“What are you doing here, Antonia? How do you know my brother?” Eduardo asked.

“Oh God, you’re brothers? All of you?” She figured out pretty damn quickly that Eduardo was the brother Marco had issues with.  Marco slid his arm around her waist, and she turned to look up at him.

“How do you know Eduardo?” he asked, looking suspicious.

“He’s friends with some of my friends’ boyfriends. We’ve hung out in similar circles before.”

“We’ve done more than that,” Eduardo said in challenge.

“We’re friends, Eduardo, and Marco and I are friends.”

“Friends?” Memphis asked, and she looked at him and then at Felix, who was smirking like he found this amusing.

She pulled away from Marco.

Eduardo stepped closer, and Marco got in front of her. “Stay back,” he said in warning.

She grabbed Marco’s arm. “It’s okay, we’re friends.”

“I kissed you several times, so I think it’s fair to say I want more,” Eduardo stated.

“I kissed her, too, and she came here with me, not you,” Marco said.

Memphis stepped between them. “Well, there’s only one obvious thing to do here,” he said, and both Eduardo and Marco barked “what” at the same time.

“Felix and I need to kiss her,” Memphis said, and she gasped and started walking toward the door, but Eduardo grabbed her hand. Marco had his fists by his sides.

“We can work it out,” Eduardo said and then brought Antonia’s hand to his lips, and he kissed her knuckles. When he pulled back, he stared down into her eyes.

“We have a bit of a problem here, Antonia. I want you, you know that. Marco wants you, and he’s as shocked as I am that we both met you and have feelings for you, but Marco doesn’t talk to me. We’ve had some problems in the past.”

“I don’t want to cause more problems. I came here as a supporting friend.”

“I don’t believe this,” Marco said, and she pulled away from Eduardo then looked at Memphis and Felix.

“I told both of you I don’t want to date anyone. That’s why I agreed to be friends.”

“Then we should all base it on sex then,” Felix said from the bed, and Memphis looked over her body.

“You are gorgeous, and this is fucking wild.” He stepped closer, slid his arm around her waist, and cupped her cheek and head then stared into her eyes.

She was shocked by Memphis’s move, by the scent of his cologne, by the uniform, a tight brown shirt and camo pants filled with muscles, and the next thing she knew, his lips pressed to hers.

He was gentle at first, but then he plunged his tongue deeper, slid his hand to her ass, and squeezed her. She needed to pull herself together, and he must have sensed her need to slow things down because, as he released her lips, he trailed his mouth along her neck and hugged her to him.

“She’s incredible. She smells so good.” He squeezed her, and when he let go, she stepped back.

“Why did you do that? Oh my God, this is not happening.” Antonia placed her fingers against her lips, looked at all four of the men, all appearing hungry, even Felix, whose nostrils flared as he licked his lips. It was all too much, and she headed toward the door.

“Toni, wait,” Marco said to her. She shook her head.

“I need a minute.” She exited the room.

 

ADULT EXCERPT

 

Felix stared at Antonia as she spoke about the local clubs and bars she and her friends frequented. “We’re supposed to go to a new place, Jordon’s, on Friday night. My friend Angie, from Malloy’s, invited me, so we’re all meeting up there.”

He could just imagine her walking into a bar or club and then men drooling over her. He reached over and took her hand. She turned to look at him, those gorgeous aqua-blue eyes staring right back at him.

“Is that really such a great idea? I mean is it safe? Who’s the designated driver?” he asked. She smiled and placed her other hand over the hand that held hers.

“It’s safe, and we take precautions. I’m trying to make some new friends anyway since my girlfriends have been busy with work and dating. I met Angie at Malloy’s, and she has several friends meeting us, too.”

He stared at her mouth as she spoke and held his gaze. “Come here,” he whispered, feeling completely aroused, and he heard his tone. It was hard, demanding, and when she immediately moved closer, he reached up and cringed a little but brushed his fingertip along her jaw. “No flirting with other men,” he whispered. He couldn’t get over how beautiful she really was. How soft her skin looked, how full her lips were, and those stunning eyes, they drew him in. So when she leaned closer and pressed her lips to his, he was ecstatic. He couldn’t help but pull her closer, and as she leaned into him, he somehow lifted her onto his lap, ignoring the pinch of pain from the stitches on his side, and he plunged his tongue deeper in exploration.

When he released her lips slowly, she went to move, and he squeezed her thigh and hip. “No. Stay right here. We’ve got some more talking to do.” He cupped her jaw and then lowered his mouth to hers again. He pulled her thigh and hip over his lap where he sat on the couch. He leaned to the left, cradling her in his arms and hoping the pain in his side wouldn’t get worse. As he plunged his tongue into her mouth, he felt her fingers slide through his hair, and he pushed for more. He cupped her breast. She moaned into his mouth. He stroked her nipple with the pad of his thumb and then felt the couch dip. She tightened only a moment, and Felix thought he heard a zipper pull down.

“Just doing a little exploring and also checking on the bruises you failed to inform us about,” Marco said to her.

Felix just kept kissing her, and then he sensed her pulling back.

“Easy, baby,” Memphis said, and as Felix released her lips, he caught sight of the deep cleavage of her breasts and the black lace bra that barely covered her and Marco kissing along her bare shoulder and pushing down the strap.

Felix made the move. He leaned forward and suckled against her neck then moved lower to her breast. He licked and then stuck his tongue into her bra as Marco unclipped her bra and it fell lower, revealing how well-endowed their woman was. He went right for her nipple, suckled, and pulled hard.

“Oh God, Felix. Marco, oh.” She moaned. He suckled harder and felt his cock thicken in his sweats, and then he pulled her hand from his chest and brought it over his cock. He rocked his hips. Her warm delicate hand slid up and down his shaft.

“Son of a bitch, Toni,” Marco cursed, and she lifted up and looked over her shoulder. She looked so damn sexy, her breasts fully exposed, her dress parted to the side.

“You hid this from us, and that’s unacceptable,” Eduardo said, and he and Memphis looked at her back and hip.

“It’s okay. It will heal.” She lifted her hand from Felix’s cock and then began to pull up her top.

Eduardo stopped her. He licked his lips.

“I understand that this happened before today, before our conversations, and before your acceptance to explore the attraction we all feel. However, we will not accept any secrets, any bruises or injuries on our woman. Not ever. Do you understand me, Antonia?” Eduardo asked her.

She nodded her head, and Eduardo leaned down, placed his hand under her chin, and tilted it upward. He pressed his lips to hers, and the sight just added to the desperation in the room. When he released her lips, he lowered his mouth to her breast and licked the tip, and she moaned softly.

“My brother looks like he’s in need. Can you help relieve that ache he has, baby?” Eduardo asked, and Felix just stared at her as she nodded her head then looked at Felix.

“And we’ll help you,” Memphis said, and she shifted, lowered down to the rug, and slid her palms up Felix’s thighs.

“Do you want to?” Felix asked her.

“I want to taste you. To learn your scent, to help you to feel good and to not feel pain.”

He gripped her hair gently. “With you I don’t feel any fucking pain. I don’t.”

“Good,” She lifted up and pulled his sweats down and gripped his cock. She leaned forward in exploration, and he adjusted his body best, considering the stitches and their location. He would suck it up and risk busting stitches to feel this goddess’s mouth over his dick. When she slid her tongue along the ridge, he panted for breath.

“Motherfucker, that’s so good.” He moaned and closed his eyes as Antonia began to suck his cock.

“That is fucking hot,” Memphis said.

“This is even hotter. Look at her perfect ass. Fuck, I’ll be in heaven,” Eduardo said, and apparently he was lifting her dress to her hips, and then she moaned against Felix’s cock.

“Oh, someone is awfully wet right now. A sweet, wet, warm pussy, who wants a taste?” Eduardo asked, and Felix figured he was stroking her pussy, fingering her by the way she was starting to rock.

“Goddamn, we are going to need her mouth too,” Marco said.

“We’ll get it. She was made for us, but first, let’s make her come over and over again,” Eduardo said, and then Felix felt her thrusting.

“So delicious. Fuck, I love the taste of you,” Eduardo said to her.

“I need a taste. Share, brother. Share,” Memphis said next, and then he must have moved into position behind her because Memphis was growling and then slurping. 

Felix ran his fingers through her hair and then lid a palm underneath her to cup a breast. She moaned a little louder and rocked her hips a little faster.

“That’s it, baby, ride my tongue and my fingers. You’re fucking delicious,” Eduardo said, and then she shook as she came.
