Be Warned: menage sex (MFM), anal sex
Lost in her fantasy, Ebony didn't see when Jaxson stopped abruptly, and she slammed into his hard body with an oomph. Before she completely lost her balance and fell, Jaxson turned and wrapped a strong arm around her waist and pulled her in against him. A wave of heat flowed over her, and a pack of butterflies took flight in her belly.
"What were you just thinking about?"
"Ahh, I wasn't thinking about anything. Just daydreaming a little and not watching where I was going."
She could feel her cheeks heat and knew she was blushing. She lowered her face and tried to hide behind a curtain of her long hair.
"Don't lie to me, Ebony. Not sure you're ready for what I do when my woman lies to me."
As he spoke he wrapped her hair around his hand and gently tugged it so her face turned up to his. She gasped in shock at both the dominant way he took control and his calling her his woman.
"You're blushing, your eyes are dilated, and your pulse is racing." His grin was wicked and full of temptation. "And, sweetheart, I can smell you. Were you thinking naughty thoughts, Ebony?"
She gulped down a breath before she licked her dry lips. Jaxson's gaze followed her tongue's movements, and he released a low growl.
I’m doing a truly terrible job of resisting this man.
She had to push him away. She couldn't risk falling in any deeper with him, but he was oh so tempting. All his strength and beauty were right there in front of her. It was almost irresistible.
"My thoughts are private, Jaxson. And there's no way you can smell me. I had a shower before you came barging into my home earlier."
She was pretty sure her eyes showed her desperation as Jaxson squinted at her a moment before he released his hold on her slowly.
"Have a seat while I grab us a couple drinks."
Ebony all but collapsed on the couch as she struggled to get her pounding heart under control. She couldn't stay here. There was no way she'd be able to resist him if he tried to seduce her. Gathering her wits, she rose to her feet and snuck toward the front door. As she reached out to open it, it swung in abruptly. She jumped back in fright and let out a squeal when she landed against a hard body.
"What on earth?"
Cooper looked totally confused as he came in and closed the door.
"I do believe Ebony was trying to sneak out on us, Coop."
Cooper dropped his keys in the pot that sat on the side table before he glared over her shoulder at Jaxson.
"What did you do to make her want to leave?"
Jaxson's palm slid around her waist until it rested over her belly. He pulled her toward him until her body pressed tightly against his. At five foot nine, Ebony was tall, but these two were giants and made her feel like she was tiny.
"I didn't do anything but call her on the naughty thoughts she was having. I was walking a few steps ahead of her and caught the scent."
Ebony whimpered against her will, arousal once again coiling through her body. With both hands, she gripped Jaxson's arm and tried to move it away from her, but he didn't budge. Panting for breath and desperate to make them understand she looked up to Cooper's gaze. His eyes were similar to Jaxson's but had a tinge of green in the golden brown.
"Please, let me go. I can't do this."
Cooper cocked his head to the side as he squinted at her in concentration.
"Just to be clear, Ebony, you don't need to choose between us. Jaxson and I come as a pair. We both want you and intend to share you."
And just like that her knees gave out.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Tigers are Forever by Khloe Wren is part of Evernight Publishing’s Romance on the Go series. This fact is important because it sets up my expectation of the book. The ROG series are short stories and are the perfect length to keep you occupied while waiting for an appointment or during your commute. Knowing that Tigers are Forever is going to be a quick read, I don’t expect there to be a lot of opportunity for character development and I was curious how Ms. Wren would handle this obstacle. I was pleasantly surprised that she handled it so well by creating characters that already had a backstory together. This enabled me as a reader, to just sit back and enjoy the story without feeling like I was missing something. Ebony has had a tough life, losing her parents at a young age. Bullied throughout high school, she doesn’t believe that anyone cares about her. What she doesn’t know is that best friends Cooper and Jaxson have wanted her forever. But they hesitated to act on their feelings because of Ebony’s age at the time and their concerns that she wouldn’t be able to handle the fact that they are shifters. Both men went away for some time in order to follow their career dreams, but they always planned on coming back for Ebony. When Ebony is attacked while visiting her parents’ grave, the men step in to not only protect her but to finally claim her as theirs. Tigers are Forever was such an easy, quick read. It flowed naturally and I found myself lost in the pages as both men seduced Ebony. In fact, I found myself envious of Ebony as two hot, alpha shifters set out to prove to her that she was meant to be theirs. Ms. Wren certainly knew how to raise the temperature in the room with her vivid descriptions and detailed narrative of steamy ménage. Despite the limited pages, Ms. Wren was able to describe all three characters so completely that I felt I had a sufficient understanding of their characters. This helped me understand their motivations and accept their actions. It’s not easy to accomplish this in just 43 pages and I was impressed with Ms. Wren’s writing ability. My only complaint is that I was enjoying myself too much and was disappointed that the book concluded so quickly. I really enjoyed this trio and wanted to learn more about their life together. Not a bad complaint to have
