“You have me now. I’m not going anywhere. I promise.”
“You can’t promise that.”
“I can,” he says, his voice deep, rich, his tone absolute. “I will.”
“Yes, but if I die, you’ll know how much I loved you. You’ll know I’m still with you.” He cups my face. “But you don’t get to get rid of me that easily. Whatever waits for us here, there, or anywhere, we’ll get through it together. That’s what husbands and wives do.”
Warmth and calm wash over me. “Husband,” I whisper.
“Wife,” he replies, his gaze raking over my lips, and lifting. “About that zipper.”
“Take me to our hotel and I’ll show you how it works.”
“I can’t wait that long,” he counters, reaching for said zipper.
I catch his hand. “Cole,” I warn urgently. “You have to wait.”
I’ve barely finished that reprimand before his mouth is crashing down on mine and he’s kissing me, his tongue stroking my tongue. One of his hands settles at the base of my spine, molding me close, all those hard, sinewy parts of him pressed to all the soft parts of me and I moan. Another second later, and my zipper is open, and he’s pressed my hands over my head, his fingers dragging over the thin lace of my barely-there bra, teasing my nipples.
“We can’t do this here,” I whisper, and I mean it, despite the moan that rolls from my throat, as his fingers slide between my legs, heat pooling low in my belly and spreading to the touch of his fingers.
“And yet we are,” he says.
Voices sound just outside the door, and I panic. “Cole,” I hiss.
He reacts, and in an instant, his arm is around my waist and he’s pulling me into a long, narrow stall, shutting the heavy door and locking it. Women, two I think, enter the bathroom, and Cole steps back in front of me, his cheek pressing to mine as he whispers. “I’m going to make you come with them standing right there.”
My fingers curl on his chest. “No,” I silently whisper, but he swallows the protest with a deep lick of his tongue, and just like that, he’s grabbed my panties and yanked them away.
And then he’s kneeling on one knee, his lips pressing to my belly, and the effect is an adrenaline rush up and down my body. My fingers tangle in his hair and I tell myself it’s to pull him away, but his tongue flicks my belly button and I bite my lip to silence my pleasure. I know where that tongue is headed and it’s almost too much.

The fairytale still continues… one marriage later, Cole and Lori are strong than ever but Cole’s demons from his past are going to put their relationship to test, and they’ll have to remain strong and let the other in, completely.
When the consequences of their jobs threatened Lori’s life, Cole was going to reach a dark place, afraid to lose the love of his life. That man didn’t settle for easy and his queen was going to prove that could take it. In these tough times, they’re gonna show how strong they had been, to face adversities as a team.
I appreciated reading about how their relationship has evolved, not a retelling of book one.
The intrigue captivated me, Cole and Lori were characters with such charisma and magnetism. It had a bit of suspense, plenty of hotness and sexiness, it worked amazingly.
I had to admit that I’ve been a bit overwhelmed by the sexy bits, that sometimes were a little prominent. We could definitely sense their smoking hot chemistry, it wasn’t that necessary to me. I didn’t say that it didn’t work but still… maybe less would have been better.
Once again, I could feel how intense and passionate their relationship was. Sinfully hot, sexy, so sensual. I was glad to read this new chapter of their lives, showing how stronger they become when they confront their fears together.
Anyway, I enjoyed reading it and I can’t wait to read more and discover new characters in the series!
