Steamy Excerpt: Tony steps closer and sinks to the cobblestone terrace, reaching with two eager hands toward my hips. He buries his face in my crotch and breathes deeply. “You smell so good.” He rubs his cheek back and forth against my panties. “What do you want me to do?”
A shudder ripples through me as the breath of his whispered voice warms my skin through the thin lace. He wants me to tell him what to do. I can do this.
“Kiss me,” I rasp, my voice barely above a whisper.
His soft lips press against the thin garment as the heat from his flesh teases me higher. My every sense feels on high alert during this encounter. I’ve never done anything so daring in my entire life. The next kiss presses harder and little shocks of arousal dart through my core.
“That’s nice,” I say, resisting the primal urge to grind myself into his face. “But I need more.”
I glance down into Tony’s light brown eyes and see an intensity I’ve never seen on a man’s face. To know it’s directed toward me feels even more amazing. “Tell me what you want.” His hot hands skate up my thighs to rest near the aroused juncture between my legs.
I feel the wetness pooling in my panties, my body eager and ready to be with this man I just met. More than anything I want his fingers teasing me to a release. “Slip your thumbs under my underwear and stroke me.”
He pulls his hot lips away from the damp cotton panel of my panties and breathes deep. “Yes, ma’am.”
A prickling ignites my skin, sending the hairs on end when he calls me ma’am. I like it.
I like it a lot.
Vanilla on Top is the first non paranormal book of C.J. Ellisson’s that I’ve read and I was blown away! I was wrapped up in Heather and Tony’s relationship from their very first meeting. Heather’s character is so relatable and everything most women have fantasized about being. She’s got a great job, hot body, sexy friend, and has made the decision to step out of her wallflower comfort zone and play the sexual vixen she believes a man would want. Even with all that she has a ton of self doubt happening throughout the book making her even more likeable. Dragged to a speed dating event with his friend, the last thing Tony expects is to find a sexy little vixen that has him acting like a love struck teenager. Tony just seem almost too good to be true: Rich and powerful, sinfully sexy, and he worships Heather. (where are all the Tony’s in the world hiding anyway?)
Besides the great characters and steamy sex, the challenges Tony and Heather face keeps you turning pages until the very end. They will have to overcome issues with their jobs, friends, secrets, and emotional scars to get there, but you’ll enjoy the ride as they fight to reach their Happily Ever After.
Vanilla on Top is a fairly short read at only around 226 pages, but there is nothing rushed or watered down in this 5 star read. Anyone who likes their romance with high heat levels and high story quality will want this on their must read list.
