Lies kept them apart. Fate brought them together.

Sadie Monterey is smart, driven, and successful. But she doesn’t have it all. The only person she’s ever loved has seemingly made it his life’s mission to avoid her. Then circumstances throw them together in a life-or-death situation. The threats are mounting against them, and time is running out. Bracken needs her help, but can she trust him? Can she afford not to?

“Sadie…” He was stalking her, slowly backing her into their sleeping room step by step. “I have to say that I never once expected you to come out in a dress like this. You may have very well started a fashion revolution. At least among the males who got to ogle all of you.”
“They don’t matter,” she said simply. “Only you matter and only you are allowed to see all of me. All of the flaws that I have and all of the scars that show I have survived.” She stepped in closer and wrapped her arms around him. “I love you, husband.”
“They are not flaws, Sadie. They are brands of strength that I see. All you survived to be here, in this moment, with me.” Lowering his head, he kissed her slowly. “And I wouldn’t have you any other way, little one. I would never wish this upon you, or anyone, but you are perfect in my eyes.”
She pulled back slightly. “I need you,” she admitted bluntly. “I need you so badly. Tell me what you need, please?” She wanted his guidance, needed him to help her find pleasure with him.
Her flesh prickled in gooseflesh as he stroked his fingers up her arm lightly. She watched his hand in fascination as it traveled up her body and to her mouth where he rubbed a finger to her lips. “Strip,” he said in a firm tone. He pressed a kiss to her lips, then stepped back from her. “I want you naked and kneeling on the bed in three minutes.”
Sadie nodded and pulled back from him. Without allowing her eyes to leave his she stripped. Once she was naked she climbed onto the bed, kneeling with her knees apart. With her hands behind her back she bowed her head and posed in the most submissive of poses.
“Feet together, knees further apart, and put your hands on your thighs.” He moved closer to the bed to help adjust her into the position he wanted. “Perfect. Absolutely perfect. I want you to focus on your breathing. Listen to the beating of your heart, the way your breath goes in and out of your lungs, and feel everything. You will need to learn to control your breathing. It will help you learn to control your orgasms in time. Because you will not ever come before I give you permission to. Do you understand what I’m telling you, or do you have questions?”
“I understand, Sir. I will not orgasm before you allow me to. I am yours to command.” Her thighs were spread, feet together and her hands palms up on her knees. She was simply waiting for him to touch her, to take her and show them both just how good it would be together.
She could hear him moving around, the sound of his clothing being pulled off amping up the energy in the room. He eventually came to the bed and settled behind her. A finger stroked slowly down her spine to rub over her anus. “One day I will slide my cock into this tight hole and fuck you hard. Do you understand?”
She shivered and nodded. “Yes, Sir. I understand. If it pleases you that would please me.” Anything that would give him pleasure would her as well simply because she knew that he would make sure she always had pleasure.
“It would please me greatly. That is for later, once we have you prepared to take me there.” His finger pressed to the tight bud for a moment before sliding down further. He stroked over her slit, teasing her opening a little. “Lean forward, hands to the bed, and up on your hands and knees. I want you to arch your back, pushing your ass toward me so I can see you.”
She did just as he had instructed, placing her hands and shoulders to the bed so that her ass was in the air and her body open for him. She felt the cool rush of air against her pussy and bit her lower lip. “Is this how you need me, Sir?”
His hand landed on her ass with a sting. “Is that what I told you to do, Sadie? I don’t think so. Get in the position I told you to be in.” He landed another sharp slap to her ass. “When I give you instructions I expect them to be followed exactly.”
“Yes, Sir.” She got onto her hands and knees, shivering, her back arched for him. The slap to her ass had caused a rush of pleasure. It had been beyond unexpected that she would like that swat as much as she did.
“Good girl,” he said softly.
