Excerpt from Love Hurts: Pure Sin Trilogy Book I by Thetta James Copyright 2020

“I didn’t know what to think when I got the call that you were taken to the hospital. My mind was racing in all kinds of directions, and it immediately went to what happened with Mike. I felt like my heart was going to explode and I was in panic mode.” 

I reach out and cup his face, encouraging him to continue. I could feel the emotions radiating from him, and I could tell he was struggling to form words.

“When I saw you in that bed, alive and okay, I knew at that moment that what I feel for you is real and I needed to tell you I love you. I love you so fucking much that it scares me. I know this seems too soon, but the thoughts that ran through my head as I was driving to the hospital scared me even more. You have brought so much joy into my life. You’ve awakened feelings I swore to never feel for someone. It’s okay if you don’t feel the same way, but I just had to tell you.” 

Placing my fingers over his lips to stop him from talking, I do my best to process what he’s saying. He’s relaying the words fast, but I hold on to those three little words I know will change the dynamic of our relationship. Three words that will shift my world and make me open myself up to everything that love brings. Ups, downs, hurt, vulnerability, so many things, but I’m so ready to feel it all.

“Shh, baby, it’s okay because I love you too. I love you so much, Jackson.”

“Oh, yeah?” He asks, smiling sheepishly.

Laughing, I say,

“Oh, yeah.” 

No other words are spoken as he captures my mouth in a gentle kiss that seals everything that we’ve promised with three words. Closing my eyes makes me dizzy, so I watch his facial expressions as he slowly kisses me. His eyes are relaxed yet filled with so much emotion.

“I need to be inside you,” he whispers.

I reach down and open my towel and lay back on the bed. Taking me by my hips, he gently brings our bodies flush and I revel in the feel of his warmth. His eyes bore deep into my soul, telling me he wants me, he needs me, he is hungry for me. He licks across the crease of my mouth, and I open to him. Biting my lip gently, he tugs it as I melt from the heat of the pain that he scores me with. He kisses down my body, raining wet kisses over my burning flesh, and spreads me wide. My core is clenching, hungry to grasp his thickness as thoughts of him being inside me take over and all I want is to feel him touching every inch of me. A nice cool breeze fills the room, helping to ease the burn, but it’s not enough. I want him inside me, and I try to be patient as his tongue takes one long stroke up my center.

His eyes never leave my face and I feel a sense of abandonment as he takes me to that height of ecstasy that I never want to come down from. I’m falling fast as my breaths come in quick succession. The desire that this man pulls from me is unmatched, and he refuses to let me come down, allowing this orgasm to ride on an endless wave of pure pleasure. He moves up my body and enters me swiftly, easily, and with reckless abandon.

He commands my body again and we fall together into that blissful oblivion that he and I create. That special place that only he and I can dwell. Caressing my face, he whispers.

“I love you Crys.”

 “I love you too, Jackson.”
