Review by: Erin
I loved this story. The emotion pours from every word. The detail and description were incredible. The characters will hook you from the very first word. The storyline was amazing and flowed effortlessly. Viktor and Alexis are incredible characters. Viktor might not have led the best life but his story ensures that he will make a lasting impression on your heart. Likewise, Alexis has not had the best life either. But she has turned out an incredible person able to see the person underneath the covering. These two have amazing chemistry and set fire to the pages. I am a huge fan of this author and this is just another prime example of why I buy her books without question.
The figure behind the curtain moves his hand and the music starts to play. I close my eyes and take a breath, eliminating my thoughts and transporting myself to another world. At this moment, I am no longer Alexis; I am no longer that girl with all her responsibilities and history. I am simply a woman. A dancer. A seductress.
As the lights dim, my arms start to move to the rhythm of the music. I undress slowly, sensually, putting emphasis on every inch of my skin as if it’s precious. I lick my lips and twirl around the chair, showing off my bare skin, as my dress falls to the floor and all that’s left is a see-through thong and bra.
My body moves on its own as I dance, almost possessed. Music is the food that feeds my soul and takes the pain away. But when I open my eyes and see him standing there, I can’t help but look. Even through the curtain, which isn’t as thick as I thought it was, I can see his complete silhouette. A big mass of muscles. Bigger than any man I’ve ever laid eyes on. It takes my breath away quite literally.
And all of those muscles are bundled at one spot.
Right in front of his crotch.
I suck in a breath and sway my hips to the music, watching his hands move up and down, front and back. My nipples tighten from the sight as I watch him jerk himself off right in front of me. I shouldn’t be aroused, this isn’t about me, but my body knows what it likes, and it doesn’t care. I wonder if he knows that I can see him … if he even cares.
I blink and turn around the chair again, but at the second turn, my eyes can’t help themselves anymore. I gorge myself on his body, watching him speed up, pumping himself. The harder he goes, the faster I move. It’s as if we’re both grounded in the moment and joined by movement alone. The music booms through the speakers, but the silence between us is chilling.
Sexy, almost, in a wicked way.
Licking my lips, I take off my bra and jiggle my tits as I twirl around the chair and do my dance. He turns sideways slowly, exposing the size of his length, and oh, boy … it just about makes my mouth water, that’s how huge he is.
I love watching him, even though I shouldn’t be. I remember the warning all too well, but what harm could it do when I can tell he’s enjoying it? And the funny thing is that I’m actually enjoying it too. It’s not often that I can please a man without touching him … and that he looks that delicious, even when hiding behind a curtain. God, I can only imagine what he might look like upclose.
There’s no harm in fantasizing, right? Besides, it’s not like I’ll see him again … Plus, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do to get off, and I’ll sure as hell get myself off when I’m done with this job.
Anxious to see where this is going, I speed up the pace and grind on the chair like a class act, which gets him all pumped up. I watch him intently from behind my lashes, making sure it’s not too obvious. Pants and soft groans are audible underneath the tone of the music, creating goose bumps across my body.
He sounds like a goddamn beast.
As the music comes to an end, and I make my final move, he releases himself, and the silence returns.
I wait, heavily breathing, sweat dripping down my body, my pussy pounding between my legs. Nothing happens.
But it should.
He never said I could stop.
