“A girl needs her options.” My eyes ping pong between them.

“Just like Danielle probably needs to check them out too since she’s still single.”

“She’s not single,” Renee grits out.

“Answer me this, when she has to fill out a form, does she check married or single?”

Renee’s lips purse at his question.

“There actually aren’t any available units in this building.” They both look at me before I pop another shrimp in my mouth. “In fact, there’s a wait list.”

“I’ll look into it,” Devin responds, and Renee hides a smirk behind her burger. “There’s no rush though. You can keep staying here.”

“That’s an idea too.” Renee nods. “Devin has all this extra space.”

Well, that changed fast. First I felt like they were fighting over me and now it feels like they’re suddenly on the same team against me finding somewhere else to live.

Renee’s phone chimes and she checks the screen. “Dani is on her way home, so I’m heading out.” She pops up from the table.

“So you were just bored and decided to pop in and see what was going on over here?” Devin cocks his head to the side and glares at her.

“Sorry about that. I didn’t know you’d be going at it when I got here.” She gives me an apologetic look. “Then it was too late to turn back so I thought I’d meet the woman driving you crazy. I can see why.” She winks at me as she grabs her bag.

“It was nice meeting you.” I stand up and she gives me a hug.

“It was nice meeting you too.” She hugs Devin next before picking up her burger to take it with her.

“Oh, Erin, before I go. Have you ever been to Milan?”

“Oh my god,” Devin mutters.

“No. I’ve never left the country.”

“Hmm. You should see it sometime. I think you’d love it.” With that, she’s out the door and shoving the rest of her burger into her mouth.

“She’s nice,” I say when the door closes behind her.

“She’s a lot of things,” he laughs. “And I think she won that round.”

I have no idea what he’s talking about, but as he slowly walks towards me all I can do is stare at his mouth. Everything that happened before his sister got here plays in my mind and I feel hot.

“Devin. I want—” He cuts me off when he grabs me and lifts me off my feet. I wrap my legs around him as he kisses me and walks me back to the bedroom.

“You want what?” he asks between kisses, laying me down on the bed.

“I wanted to see if we could pick up where we left off.”

He pauses to look in my eyes and nods. “I’m not going anywhere.”

Chapter Seventeen


When I wake up it’s still dark outside, but one look at my watch tells me it’s almost sunrise. Most days my body automatically gets me up whether I set my alarm or not, but that’s not the case today.

It’s the warm body laid across mine that has me achingly aware of how we spent our night. After I’d tasted every inch of Erin, I held her until she fell asleep. I’m still somehow fully dressed and she’s completely nude, but it was safer that way.

“You talk in your sleep,” she says as she leans up and looks at me.

“Did I say anything good?” I push the hair out of her face and kiss her forehead as she lies back down and cuddles against me.

“Something about a moving truck and then chocolate.”

I laugh, rolling us over so she’s under me. “Oh, that’s easy. I was dreaming about moving you in with me.”

Her eyes widen, but before she can respond I kiss her while I grind against her pussy. We dry hump for a long time before I finally pull back and smile.

“I think the chocolate was something else entirely though.”

I kiss my way down her stomach and then move between her legs. They fall open automatically and I groan when I see how wet she is for me. She’s already anticipating what I’m going to do to her, and my mouth is watering with the same need.

“How am I still needy after last night?” she moans and raises her hips.

“How am I still so hungry?” I lick between her soft folds and along her clit. I push two fingers inside of her and pretend it’s my cock when my cock knows damn well it isn’t.

I take my time and savor the taste and feel of her on my tongue. She’s so fucking warm and sweet first thing in the morning, and I’m making plans to start every day exactly like this.

“I need more.” She tugs at my shirt and I use one of my hands to pin her wrists to the bed.

“We talked about this,” I tell her before I nip the inside of her thigh.
