[Menage Amour: Contemporary Menage a Trois Romance, MFM, HEA]
Cole Drake and Lucas Williams fell in love at first sight when they first met Ruth Brewer six months ago. However, she has thwarted them at each turn. She doesn’t want a relationship with any man, for she is convinced if they know what she did in the past, they would walk away without looking back.
Working on the Lazy R ranch has provided Ruth with the obscurity she had been seeking. Her boss didn’t even know her secret, but with the arrival of her ex-husband comes the truth she has been hiding for so long.
Now, everyone knows what had happened to her. Although she never wanted anyone find out, she believes this will be the trigger that will send Cole and Lucas packing. Will they surprise her and stick around to show her they truly love her? Can she let go of the past so that she can love again?
Cole had waited for this moment for so long, he seemed to be in a trance. Movement in the shades of blonde, purple, and black swept behind Ruth, moving from the stairs to the front door, and he vaguely heard a woman giggle and say, “I’ll leave you three alone. Have fun!” He couldn’t take his eyes off Ruth to see who it was, but it sounded like Lily. Ruth was finally standing before him for a date, and she was stunning.
From what Cole could tell, Ruth had never put any effort into her appearance while she was working. Her hair had always been pulled back into a ponytail or the occasional bun. She wore no makeup, and her clothes always seemed to hang on her body and looked like she’d had them for a long time. Of course, being a housekeeper, Cole was certain she dressed for comfort and felt as if she didn’t need to clean up.
When he and Lucas had come to visit in the past six months, it had been unannounced, so flour would be splattered on her shirt, or her hair would be frazzled at the ends or hang limp. This was the first time they had seen her dressed up, and she was stunning.
Unable to help himself, Cole reached out and placed his hands on both of Ruth’s cheeks before he lowered his lips to hers. He heard her gasp slightly a nanosecond before their lips met, but she didn’t pull away from him.
There was a spark that passed between them as he kissed her reverently, savoring the act as it had taken so long to get to this point in their relationship. Her lips moved against his while he felt her hands grasp hold of his forearms as if she was holding on for dear life.
After a few seconds he ended the kiss, but not before peppering a few pecks on her lips. He gazed into her eyes which now were pools of dark chocolate with specks of caramel swimming in them. When he kept the connection, Ruth lowered her eyes as her cheeks became rosy.
Lowering his own eyes, he could see her nipples poking out the sweater she wore. She would probably be embarrassed to know that, but to him, it proved her arousal. Cole knew they were breaking her down.
He moved aside to let Lucas greet her properly. Ruth kept one hand on Cole’s forearm as she lifted her head to Lucas. The two kissed with a bit more passion then what he and Ruth had used, but Cole wasn’t jealous. In fact, he was turned on watching the two kiss. He hoped Ruth didn’t spot his hard-on in his jeans, for he didn’t want to scare her away at the beginning of the date.
Lucas and Ruth’s kiss lasted a bit longer, moans emanating from both of them. Ruth had grasped onto Lucas’s shirt with her free hand, so now she held on to each of them, seemingly wanting to be connected to both men.
A huge change had come over Ruth in the past couple of days, one Cole was proud of. However, because of the past six months, he really hoped and prayed that this new side of Ruth wasn’t going to disappear as quickly as it arrived.
Lucas pulled out of the kiss, and Cole could see that Ruth’s reaction was the same as it had been with Cole. Ruth released her hold on them with a sigh and a shy smile. Needing to move beyond their first kiss, Cole cleared his throat. “Are you hungry, sweetcakes?” he asked, hoping his voice didn’t give away his ache for her.
Ruth met his gaze and nodded. “Let me get the plates and silverware,” she said as she started for the kitchen.
Putting his hand out, Cole stopped her. “We don’t need those. We brought Chinese, and we can eat out of the cartons with chopsticks. No dishes to clean.”
A bit of panic kissed Ruth’s features. Cole knew that serving people was her job, but when it came to him and Lucas, they didn’t expect that out of her. Apparently, Lucas caught onto Cole’s thoughts.
“Baby doll, we want this time to be with you, not you being in the kitchen doing dishes or cleaning up,” Lucas said softly as he held her chin in his hand so she couldn’t turn away. “You are off the clock.”
“I don’t mind,” she said, her voice nearly cracking.
Cole realized Ruth had spent so much time working for the ranch that she felt as if it defined her. He and Lucas knew there was so much more to her, and it was going to be hard to break her of that. He didn’t mind her working, but he wanted to make sure she had a life outside of work, which he was certain she didn’t have.
Her body was on fire for these two men. It had been for months, but she denied it. When she had awakened on Lucas’s lap, she could feel his hard cock against her hip. It was like a steel pipe. Moving her legs, she could feel the same with Cole. Both men seemed well-endowed.
Cream escaped her pussy. She felt as if her panties were soaked, and she was afraid her jeans were also. Her nipples were hard as pebbles in her bra where the lace was scraping against them, heightening their sensitivity even more. It seemed as if her entire body was one vast erogenous zone.
It took a moment to realize they had stopped moving. Looking around, she saw that they were in her bedroom. Lucas had sat on the edge of the bed, and his arms were still wrapped around her. Cole was standing about two feet away from them, desire burning in his eyes, and a quick glance at Lucas showed her he wanted her just as much.
“Sweetcakes,” Cole said, his voice cracking. “Is what you said true?”
It was true. She did want them. Her body yearned for them.
Her eyes slid to the dresser where Lily had left all the makeup and lotions she had bought for Ruth. It all had been used to make Ruth feel pretty and sexy. Lily’s words came back to her about taking chances and deserving to be happy. It was time.
She nodded slowly. Lucas raised his hand and cupped her neck, the gesture so caring and intimate. His thumb caressed along her jaw as he turned her towards him. “Are you sure?” he asked, his voice gravelly.
There was no need to hesitate. Ruth smiled at him as sexily as possible as she slid her hand over his shoulder and across to the buttons of his shirt. One by one she plucked the small plastic discs through the holes as Lucas’s heavy breathing accentuated the air. She gazed into his eyes as she worked at the task at hand.
Shifting slightly so she could put a bit of distance between her body and Lucas’s, she unbuttoned his shirt as far as she could. The rest of the garment was beneath her hip.
Cole slid his hands under Ruth’s arms and picked her up as if she weighed nothing. He hugged her to him and plastered his lips to hers as he moved to sit on the bed next to Lucas, situating her so that she straddled him.
His tongue delved past her lips when she opened on a gasp and slid across hers. She placed her hands on both sides of his head, her thumbs near his ears and her fingers curving his neck. She held on to him as if he was going to disappear as she kissed him with a passion she had been certain her body didn’t possess.
Cole moved his hands down her body until he reached her ass. He caressed the globes before he grasped them and gave them a squeeze. Ruth moaned at the sensation. It felt wonderful to be fawned over, and she wanted more of it.
With her sitting the way she was, her cunt was flush with his crotch, the seam of her jeans pressing into the seam of her pussy. Rocking back and forth had sparks lighting her up. Sparks sizzled from her core throughout her body, driving the heat up within her.
Her tongue danced with Cole’s as she sucked at his mouth. Cole was sweeping his tongue through her mouth as if he was trying to memorize her, and she wanted to take as much as she could from him. The dry spell she had been in was so long that her body was drowning for attention, for love, and now it was in front of her in the form of Cole and Lucas.
Pain was beginning to manifest in her lungs, and she realized she needed air. Pulling out of the kiss, she leaned back and looked at Cole. His face was flushed, and his lips were swollen from their kisses. His chest was heaving as much as hers was as he tried to regain his breathing.
As if floodgates had opened on her libido, she felt like a new woman. Letting bravery take over, Ruth reached over and grasped a handful of Lucas’s shirt, pulling him forward. When he was close enough, she smashed her mouth to his. She licked across his lips and he opened to her. She explored his mouth as she rubbed against Cole’s crotch, surprised that both men were letting her take what she wanted for a moment.
Moans floated on the air from both men, feeding Ruth’s hunger. She couldn’t believe she was acting with such wanton abandon. A couple of hours ago Ruth Brewster was a frigid woman with no desire to have sex again. She was someone who had acted irresponsibly and ruined the rest of her life. However, now, she was desired by two men who were offering her a second chance at life, and she was going to grab it and live life fully.
Releasing Lucas’s lips and stilling, she looked at him and then Cole. Need gnawed at her core, and even though her men were looking at her with the same need, they hesitated. Had they changed their minds?
