His hand on my lower back… just inches away from my ass. And if he was going to touch my ass, it was basically the same as him touching me between my legs. So, yes, my brain reacted like Niall Stella was touching my clit and I nearly tripped and sprawled flat in the intersection.
“Do I love your taste?”
With apparent effort, she said, “You know you do.”
“It makes me wild, doesn’t it? it makes me….”
“Hard,” she finished for me.
Looking up at her I told her, “I’m not making love to you tonight with anything but my hands – but I want you to come so violently on my fingers that you’ll wake in the middle of the night desperate to recreate it…” I kissed her shoulder, murmuring, “only to fail.”
Her mouth fell open.
“You won’t have the right angle, you see.” I ran a finger along her jaw. “Or the right size of finger, or depth. But mostly you’ll fail at making yourself feel as good as I will because you won’t be patient.”
“Put your mouth… there.”
I fought my smile. “Where, exactly?”
Her eyes met mine, softening. “You know where.”
“Your cunt, darling?” I whispered.
“Good, because I know we need to talk. But right now I want to put my mouth on you and sing God Save the Queen.”
“It feels a little wicked, still,” he admitted, kissing the inside of my thigh. “Like it’s naughty to stare at your tits, very naughty to watch you masturbate, exceedingly naughty to put my fingers inside of you, but to actually put my tongue here?” He licked me, humming, “This sweet place only I can see? Well that feels sublimely naughty.”

    Publisher Synopsis

    When Ruby Miller’s boss announces he’s sending her on an extended business trip to New York City, she’s shocked. As one of the best and brightest young engineers in London, she knows she’s professionally up to the task. The part that’s throwing her is where she’ll be spending a month up close and personal working alongside—and staying in a hotel with—Niall Stella, her firm’s top urban planning executive and The Hottest Man Alive. Despite her ongoing crush, Ruby is certain Niall barely knows she’s alive…until their flirty overnight flight makes him sit up and take notice.

    Not one for letting loose and breaking rules, recently divorced Niall would describe himself as hopeless when it comes to women. But even he knows outgoing California-girl Ruby is a breath of fresh air. Once she makes it her mission to help the sexy Brit loosen his tie, there’s no turning back. Thousands of miles from London, it’s easy for the lovers to play pretend. But when the trip is over, will the relationship they’ve built up fall down?
