Taming His Tutor(65)

By: Natalie Anderson

“Joe,” she whispered. “I won’t let you down. I won’t let you go.”

He leaned closer still, resting his forehead on hers. “I thought I had it all together. Thought my life was perfect. I pursued my dream, made money, found a new dream when the first ended. And it was all coming together so well. I didn’t think anything was lacking. I had women when I wanted them, a great business…”

She stared at him, his eyes so close, his need palpable.

“But it’s not enough.”

“You want more?”

“More than want. Need. I need you. Need to get to all of you. I want to spend a really, really long time getting to know you.”

“How long?”

“As long as you’ll let me. I’m thinking at least sixty-five years.”

His hand encapsulated hers. Large, strong, holding her so securely. Tears splashed down her face. Damn.


He wanted her. Needed her. Like, for a long time. He liked her.

“I’d like to get to know you better, too,” she whispered. “Very much.”

He squeezed her hand. “Then we have ourselves a plan?”

She nodded and flicked away the river of tears that had escaped. “So this is like, our first date?”

The most gorgeous smile broke over his face. “Sure.”

Absolute happiness poured through Abbi and she smiled back at him, tears and all. “Are we going to have sex on our first date?”

He put down the bottle he hadn’t had a single sip from, a laugh bursting from him. “Ah, you are only interested in one thing from me.”

She giggled too as the tension broke. “I’m interested in everything about you, too. But though you’ve taught me well, I do think that practice makes perfect. We can practice all kinds of intimacy.”

“I’m convinced.” He stood, swiftly wrapping his arm around her shoulder to haul her close.

“It’s getting pretty late…” She looked up at him coyly.

“Time to head home?”

Her bed felt way too far away.

“You know a lot of people have sex in a car on their first date,” she said as soon as they got outside.

“You’re getting confused with having sex for the first time.” He laughed.

“Whatever. I’ve never had sex in a car. And I want to.” Back in the day she’d wanted to have sex with him anywhere, anyhow. Wanted him to be her first. And in so many ways he was.

And yeah, back in the day, a car might have featured in her secret dreams. It might be a few years late, but she was totally fulfilling the fantasy. And the thing was, she was fulfilling it from here on in. All with him.

“A car.” He looked momentarily pained as he unlocked his. “You do realize I have long legs, right? And that backseat is nonexistent.”

“So you’ll struggle to move?” she asked innocently. “Oh well. Perhaps you should just put your seat belt on and let me do the driving.”

“Vixen.” He moved so quickly she had her back pressed against the door and her breasts crushed by his chest before she could blink. She could feel his cock, feel the barely leashed energy within his rigid body as he leaned hard into her.

So good, so strong, she melted into hot, wet readiness in a heartbeat.

But his hands were so gentle as he framed her face, tilting it so she could look right into his eyes—and he could look into hers. “I’m so sorry I hurt you last night.”

“I hurt you too. I shouldn’t have ripped into you like that.”

“I needed it. I need you.”

He kissed her. The merest brush of lips. A tease. A question. An answer.

Abbi lifted her chin and kissed him right back. Opening her mouth to breathe him in, she reveled in the hungry, possessive stab of his tongue, and sucked him hard—until he drew back with a sharp breath. But his arms tightened.

Not letting her go. Never letting her go. Loving her, just for her.

Best first base ever.
