Elizabeth's Review From a Cat ~ 10 Purring Stars Review

Review From a Cat... Computer Hijacked by Zeus the Adventure Cat!!  10 Stars of Funny and Sexy! Elizabeth @ White Hot Reads

Zeus is checking in for Elizabeth... she let me take over her review. It wasn't hard to do. I gave her something called coffee and she got distracted. So I am going to go at this quick.

My person, Patrick is in love with the girl named Mia. She is great.. a far as people go. She scratches my belly, sends me gifts and goes on adventures with me and my person. I'd like to keep her around, but my person needs to figure out how to do that. 

You see my person is in love with the girl, and the girl is in love with my person. They are both scared to speak the words to each other, but they tell me everything. Felines are easy that way, you scratch us behind the ears and whisper all your secrets. We don't tell anyone because people don't understand cat talk. This tom is going to enjoy his people because they get is together and find something called a Happily Ever After. 

As long as I get to go on my adventures and be on TV... cause I'm famous... yes I'm a Famous Cat! Now I have to go visit the calico down the hall, but that queen is another story...

  Women often say a good man is hard to find. And a hard man is even better.   That's why I'm quite a catch-- good, hard, loaded, and wait for it...I'm ready to settle down too. But the woman I want to pitch my tent with lives clear across the country. Neither of us wants to get lost in those woods. All I have to do is resist her for the week she's in town.   I try. I swear I try. But yeah, that doesn't work out.    And after one fantastic night with my good friend Mia, I'm ready to give her years of nights under the stars. What's a few thousand miles when love's involved? But there's a hitch in my plans -- she just hired my adventure tour company. If there's one thing I'm committed to, it's running a squeaky clean business. Number one on my list of iron-clad rules?   Don't screw your customers.   But what's a guy to do when she's so hard to resist? How hard can it be to keep our hands off each other for a quick group tour down the hills and over the trails? I'm about to find out, and I have a feeling I'm going to need a new badge of honor because things are about to get  very hard in the woods.     ✮✮✮  On sale for release week! Price goes up end of week!

EXCERPT

I let go of her hand and thread my fingers through her hair. “Get on me.”

Then I grab her hips and move her so she’s straddling my lap. She gasps, a sexy noise that turns into a moan as she sinks down on my hard-on.

I hiss because it feels so fucking good.

“I wanted to come over the other night. After dinner. After the elevator,” she blurts out.

“Yeah?”

She nods. “Dinner ran late, but I couldn’t stop thinking about you.”

“What were you thinking?”

“That we didn’t get to kiss, and I wanted to so badly.”

“I can fix that problem right now.”

I take her face in my hands and bring her to me. Then the world spirals away as I kiss Mia Summers for the very first time.

It’s extraordinary. Her lips brush against mine, and she wastes no time. She slides closer, rubbing on my dick as she presses her chest to me. It’s as if she’s climbing me, and God, how I want this. How I want her like this.

I thread my fingers through her hair, pulling her closer, kissing her deeper. Tasting her. Her mouth is soft and sweet, and she makes these little sounds—whimpers, sighs, gasps—that make me nearly lose my mind.

 

I’m kissing Mia. I’ve been crazy for her for so damn long, and she’s on my lap, rubbing against my erection, kissing me as if her every last breath depends on it. Her tongue tangles with mine, and in a hot second, the kiss become furious. Greedy. Like two people who are mad about each other. I curl my hands around her head, wanting to get as close as I can, but she bats them away.

I break contact for a moment and raise a questioning eyebrow.

“My turn.” She lifts her hands, cups my cheeks, and then she strokes my jaw. Reverently. Hungrily. And I know what she’s doing. She’s feeling my beard. She’s touching my stubbled jaw with eager fingers, as if she’s wanted to get her hands on me for as long as I’ve wanted to touch her.

I don’t stop her. I drop my hands to her hips, and I guide her along, moving her so she grinds against my cock, and she’s gasping and murmuring as she kisses me.

We consume each other. We are ravenous. My brain turns to static, firing pleasure signal after pleasure signal to every nerve in my body. I want to live in this moment for the rest of the night. I don’t ever want to forget how good it feels not only to kiss her, but to be kissed by her.

She rocks harder, goes faster, murmurs louder, then she separates and looks at me with desperate eyes. “You have no idea.”

I shake my head. “I do. I have every idea.”
