Laughing, I took her hand and led her to the kitchen. She grabbed a slice of pizza and hopped up onto the counter where I had set her when I was making her breakfast. I caught a glimpse of her panties as my t-shirt lifted slightly. She took a big bite. “Mmmm.”
Yeah, that’s exactly what I was thinking, but not about the pizza. “Greasy enough for ya?” I asked as I grabbed a slice and hopped up on the counter across from her.
“Oh, yeah,” she said, swinging her bare, sexy legs.
She tipped her head back and held the slice above her mouth. The cheese dangled from the corner of the slice, and as she lowered it down into her mouth, I fidgeted. She chewed slowly with her eyes closed, savoring it. Her lips parted, allowing her tongue to lick the sauce from them. Pizza had just become my favorite food.
“Do you want some more wine, Gia?” Ethan asked from the kitchen.
“Are you trying to get me drunk?” I asked him, grinning to myself.
“I don’t know, should I be?” Now he was looking down at me from the back of the couch, smiling.
“I don’t know,” I said shaking my head. “I get pretty horny when I get drunk.”
“You mean, hornier than you usually are?” He held up his hand, which was already holding a bottle of wine. “I gotta see this.” He filled my glass all the way to the rim.
“Gia’s husband really missed out, didn’t he? There he was, with a beautiful wife who cared more about his wants and needs than her own, yet he couldn’t even make love to her the way she wanted.” He lifted my chin and kissed my lips. “I know what you want.” He kissed my neck. “I know what you need.” He lifted my shirt off. “I know what you like.” He kissed my breasts. “I know what you love,” he whispered in my ear. I got goose bumps and my nipples hardened. Yes, he knew all those things about me. He knew better than anyone.
Synopsis for Total Control (Book #3)
Gia’s finally had a taste of what her life could be like with Ethan, and boy what a taste he was, but can she face the demons she’s pushed down so deep, that even she forgot how ugly they were, and live that life with him…
As Gia takes the first steps to finding herself again after years of depression and guilt, she feels hopeful. Ethan is everything she’s ever wanted, and more. He’s allowed her to open up and be herself for the first time in a long time. He’s also awakened her sexually, but maybe too much. Can she harness the want to explore, the need to experiment, long enough to return to Ethan’s arms and accept all that he so desperately wants to give her, or will she succumb to the temptations which always seem to be licking at her, like flames from a dangerous fire? Just as she thinks she’s got it all under control, the ugly truth pays her a surprise visit.
Ethan finally has everything he’s ever wanted. A successful business, a strong team, and a budding relationship with Gia, the woman of his dreams, but can he hold onto her long enough to show her that he’s the man of hers…
As much as Ethan hates to be separated from Gia, he knows how much she needs the treatment she decides to ensue. He loves her sexual appetite and willingness to please and be pleased, but he wants so much more, he wants all of her, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Can he set aside his fear and jealous tendencies long enough to receive them from her, and when he’s faced with the ugly, will he be able to handle the heartbreaking truth, or will it be more than he bargained for?
About the Author
Desiree Wilder was born in South Dakota and grew up in a small town where she thrived in school and developed a love for reading and writing. Her younger days were filled hanging out with her older brother and younger sister riding bikes, playing board games and watching General Hospital. As a teen she became less interested in learning academics and became more interested in learning how to get into mischief without getting caught.
As an adult, Desiree loves cooking, shopping, reading, concert-going, camping and spending time with her crazy yet supportive family. She’d rather take the dirt road and crank up some eighty’s rock or some good ‘ol Hank Jr. than the paved fast track.
Just recently she started writing and something inside her came alive. It fulfilled her and unexpectedly took over what had become a robotic daily routine. She is a hopeless romantic and believes in love at first sight. Nowadays you can catch her doing ‘research’ for her next book at a concert or getting inspired for her next leading man in the romantic comedy section!
