The four annoying boys who were responsible for the worst moments of my childhood have grown into four irritating, hot-as-sin MEN. When I spend one mind-blowing week at their beach house, we do things together I never even dreamed about…
“I should go,” I say. I don’t want to run, and I don’t mean to run, but I’m suddenly overwhelmed and my body moves without my mind being completely on board. Plate in hand, I get up and go inside, closing the door behind me.
“Maddy, wait.” I’m through the dining room and almost to the kitchen when Adam grabs my arm. “Where are you going?”
“I need to leave.”
“Why are you running? I know you want me, too.”
“Josh and Jake, they-” I start, until I’m aware that the twins have also followed me in. Matt’s coming through the door, as well.
“They want you, too, Maddy. I know.” My eyes are wide and my breath stops for a beat as I hang on his words. “We don’t mind sharing.”
I stand in stunned silence as Adam takes the plate from my hand, sets it on the counter, and comes back to me, both his hands on my face and in my hair and his mouth claiming mine, kissing me like someone who doesn’t intend to share me, ever.
His lips are soft but firm, and then his tongue demands entry, and I let him in, tangling, tasting, finding satisfaction but continually seeking more.
But then he releases me and turns me toward the twins, who’ve been standing right behind me. Jake looks into my eyes, waiting and searching for some kind of sign, until I give him the smallest of nods. He steps in close, lining his body up with mine, pressing against me as he tips my chin upward and brings his mouth down on mine.
I’ve been missing this ever since I backed away from his attempted kiss upstairs. It feels so good to let him kiss me and to kiss him back with all I’ve got.
Adam is sexy, funny and infuriating, and his kiss was hot and passionate. Jake, along with his twin, is my longtime friend and has been a part of my soul for nearly as long as I can remember. His kiss feels like coming home, like putting together a piece that I never knew was missing.
I’m trembling when Jake pulls away. Josh reaches out to take my hand and leads me over to the couch.
“I’m sorry,” I say, not sure what I’m apologizing for. “I don’t know how this works.”
Josh sits beside me, his leg pressed against mine. “It works however you want it to, Maddy.”
“Have you – have you done this before? Shared someone?”
Adam shakes his head. Josh says softly, “No, but we’ve talked about it. About you.”
Matt sits on the other side of me, silent and still, but nearly as close as Josh, and I look over at him, trying to read his expression.
In reply to my unasked question, Matt simply places a hand on my thigh, telling me he’s in this, too. As I’m looking at Matt’s hand in wonder, my mind whirling with new possibilities, Josh pushes my hair off my shoulder and lays a line of tender kisses from the base of my neck up to the curl of my ear.
His voice is husky and his breath is hot on my cheek when he whispers, “Be ours, Maddy.”
Any part of my body that had still been in solid form, melts instantly. My brain puddles into lust and heat floods between my legs.
Deep down I know there are reasons why this shouldn’t be happening and why I shouldn’t give in to how I’m feeling, but those reasons are buried so deep down at this moment that I can’t be bothered to try to remember them.
