For someone who wasn’t the “dating kind,” he had certainly done a bang-up job of wooing me. Dating, marriage … the whole nine yards. I’d fallen hard. I couldn’t help it. Nolan Corrington was gorgeous, charming, sweet, and he loved me with a passion I’d never felt before. It was inevitable on my end.
He tried to fight his love for me. I was the first girl he ever let in because he’d vowed never to love. He didn’t want the fallout a heartbreak would create. But he said dating me, marrying me, loving me … the whole nine yards was inevitable for him too.
With a love like that, there could be no room for heartbreak, right?
Well, see … that’s the thing about loving someone so hard. You don’t always share everything about yourself, at least not until it’s too late … until the person is so deep inside you that you hope they won’t want to leave. That’s what I like to call love’s deception.
And that’s what Nolan counted on.
What could go wrong? Oh, only everything … only the one thing he feared in the first place … heartbreak. Too bad it wasn’t just a matter of walking away … it was more, a lot more. It was life, death, and everything in between. It was love, and it was deception.
He crossed the room, taking my head in his hands to force me to look into his eyes as he spoke. “I love you, Lise. I’m so in love with you that it hurts. If my actions these past few weeks haven’t proven that to you, then I’m doing something wrong, and I’ll need your help figuring out the right way to go about showing you that I’m in it for the long haul. I didn’t have you meet my dad just for kicks. It means something to me that you met him and that you met Lily. I’m not running this time. Don’t be scared. Don’t be scared of me or your feelings for me. I promise to guard them and guard your heart. I broke it once, and that was one time too many. I won’t be fool enough to do it again.”
He opened his mouth to continue, probably to say something else to convince me he was man enough to love, but I cut him off. “I love you,” I said. His mouth snapped shut immediately as he looked at me, his eyes boring into mine as if wishing the words to come out again. I obliged. “I love you, Nolan. I’m in love with you.” And then his lips crashed into mine. His kiss was frantic as though he were afraid I’d disappear if he let go. Or maybe afraid my love would disappear.
Without breaking the kiss, he moved his hands from my face and down my body until he was able to tug me up to wrap my legs around his waist.
He turned and walked toward the bedroom, his lips not leaving mine until he set me on the bed.
“God, Lise. I’ve waited for what feels like forever to hear you say those words. I love you. And now I’m going to show you how much I love you in the best way I know how.”
He undressed while I watched from the bed. I got my own private strip tease as each article of clothing came off quickly but with purpose until he was naked before me, his cock pointing straight at me as if saying “your turn.”
Nolan’s other head must have gotten the memo. “Undress for me,” he whispered, but the soft tone didn’t diminish his command.
I stood and began to slowly peel my dress over my body, leaving just my bra and panties. “Everything,” he said. I kicked off my shoes before unhooking my bra and then slowly lowering my underwear. I stood back up, letting Nolan’s eyes trail up and down my body.
“God, I missed you,” he told me and then closed the gap. But he didn’t kiss me even though his mouth was just a hair’s breadth away
from mine. Instead, he breathed me in, and it was somehow more erotic than anything I’d experienced before. “I want to tease you,
tempt you, make you dripping wet for me, but I can’t right now. I need you too much. I need to be inside you right now. I promise I’ll take my time with you next time.”
“Yes,” I said on a moan, my body instinctively leaning closer to his.
“Lie down on the bed, Lise. Open your legs. Open for me,” he urged, and I did.
He moved to the bedside table, presumably to get a condom, but my words halted him. “No. I’m clean, and I trust you. I love you, and you love me. Nothing between us.”
“Are you sure?” he asked, and I nodded. “I’m clean,” he told me as if I needed the reassurance.
“Nolan, please,” I begged, needing him.
He climbed on top of me, his cock moving against my slippery folds, and I couldn’t help but arch my back in pleasure.
“Eyes on me, Lise. I want you to watch me as I claim you as mine. I want to see you lose control. I want to see your face as you scream my name.” I could have come just from his words. And then he pushed inside, slowly sinking in deep, causing his name to escape my lips. And then he moved in and out, his eyes never leaving mine, sweetly torturing me with a slow but steady pace, whispering words of love as he held himself propped up with his strong arms on either side of me. I grabbed them as if they were my anchor to this world, keeping me grounded as he moved inside me.
I felt the tension building. “Please,” I said. Nolan must have felt the pulsing start because he moved a little faster until I was screaming his name. My orgasm hit me with a force I’d never felt before, then he followed suit.
He held himself up even after we were both spent, his eyes still staring into mine.
“Did you feel that?” he asked. “That’s what it feels like to love someone, to be in love with someone. That, Lise, is what we have to
look forward to forever.”
