Love isn't supposed to be an addiction. It isn't supposed to leave you bleeding.
Kona pushed, Keira pulled, and in their wake, they left behind destruction.
She sacrificed everything for him.
It wasn't enough.
But the wounds of the past can never be completely forgotten and still the flame remains, slumbers between the pleasure of yesterday and the thought of what might have been.
Now, sixteen years later, Keira returns home to bury the mother who betrayed her, just as Kona tries to hold onto what remains of his NFL career with the New Orleans Steamers. Across the crowded bustle of a busy French Market, their paths collide, conjuring forgotten memories of a consuming touch, skin on skin, and the still smoldering fire that begs to be rekindled.
When Kona realizes the trifecta of betrayal—his, Keira's and those lies told to keep them apart—his life is irrevocably changed and he once again takes Keira down with him into the fire that threatens to ignite them both.
There are groans, the sweet, erotic sound of their bodies slapping together, his breath over her face, his wide, perfect tongue inside her mouth and Keira is drunk, high on him. She didn’t know, hadn’t realized how much she’d missed this, how his touch, his taste is like a drug. Her drug. How had she lived without this? Without him?“Harder. Kona… I need…”
“Wildcat, look at me.” Keira growls when he stills, her body moving with the shake of his shoulders and she looks up at him, eyebrow arched. But his smile relaxes her, chases away some of her annoyance. “Tell me what you need.” A small thrust to keep that frown from her face and Keira’s eyes roll behind her closing lids. Kona stops, waits until she looks at him again. “You want me to fuck you, Keira?” A harder thrust, this one has Keira’s legs shaking. “Or do you want me to love you gentle?”
Either answer and one of them will be disappointed, but Keira had been selfless for a long time, putting everyone’s needs before her own. Kona looks down at her and she exhales, releasing the stores of want she has hoarded inside herself for sixteen years.
She touches his face, fingertips on his brow, over his cheek and she hopes he understands. “Kona, you can do gentle later. Right now, please fuck me.”
“Fine,” he says, his smile falling a fraction and then he pulls out of her, comes up on his knees.
“What… what are you doing?” She feels cold, unsatisfied, but doesn’t reach for him, curls her fingers into a fist.
“What you asked.” Kona grabs her arms, fingers biting into her soft flesh and he kisses her. Tongue in her mouth, grip tight, lips so hard he pulls a sudden moan from her. Then, just as quickly as he brought his mouth down on hers, Kona moves away. “Turn around. Ass up so I can fuck you, Wildcat.”
