MMA fighter Ice O’Malley is on his way to attaining his dream of making a name for himself in the ring. After drugs, life on the street, and cheating women, Ice refuses to let anything get in the way, even the new stripper at the club where he bartends. Just one smile lights him up like a shot at the title. After taking a job as an exotic dancer to get out from under her father’s financial hold and her ex-boyfriend’s marriage proposal, Nicole Phillips falls hard for the sexy Irish fighter who rescues her during a bar fight. The heat in his eyes makes her shiver, but every time she says hello, he says goodbye. Then she moves into the apartment next to his and the gloves come off...along with everything else.
She craves freedom…he needs to control.
“I’m not an easy lover to satisfy, Nicole. Matter of fact, I’m a hard guy to please. I have a…unique taste for sex. It’s not for the weak.”
Her breathing was heavy and labored as she stared down at his mouth wishing she could feel it on her body. “What do you mean by unique? Do you mean like pain?”
Her stomach flopped as she watched one corner of his mouth curl up in a grin. “Sometimes there’s pain. But it’s mostly about the exchange of control. My kind of sex isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s not for an innocent girl like you, Nicole.” His accent was thick again. She was beginning to notice that his voice grew thicker the closer their bodies got to each other. The sound turned her on even more.
“Maybe I’m not as innocent as you think I am,” she whispered.
His smile was a mix of lust and eagerness causing a tremble in her stomach. “Oh, I think you are, my sweet little Nikki. There are things I like to do that would make this beautiful face cringe.”
She stiffened her back, knowing she couldn’t hide her burning face. “Try me.”
He smiled at the challenge. His hands moving up the outside of her thighs as he leaned towards her. “Little one, be careful what you wish for.”
She stiffened her back and raised her chin a notch higher as she looked into his face. She was tired of everyone thinking she couldn’t handle herself.
“What I wish, is for you to show me what all the fuss is about.”
