Love Scene Prize

About my scene: When I finished Jaxon’s story (Sin’s Flower-Book 2), I realized that even though he’d earned his Happy Ending, he still had a major issue with intimacy in vulnerable places because of what had happened to him in Trista’s book (Sidewalk Flower-Book 1). So last night I checked in with our fave Aussie bad boy and he said it was okay with me to share this with his fans, new and old. He wants you to know “life is a goody” in Bugscuffle, Tennessee. No more “bananas karma”….Enjoy!

“Baby Steps”

            “The Bugscuffle Inn. Oooh, outside your dad’s shop. And let me think…L.P. Field’s parking lot. Definitely my top three.” Lily tugged a bite from her red licorice and then sucked the air with it like a straw. “Want some?”

            Just thinking about those nights and seeing how his wife’s face lit up with a bitty of pink blush when she listed them made Jaxon’s blood thunder. Recalling the steam on the car windows after the Titans game made him smile.

            “All at the top of my list too, baby.” He bit the end of her offered Red Vine and then gently tugged her soft blonde hair from where it had become stuck between his shoulder and the backseat cushion.

            Drive InLily and her adorable missions. The practice sessions, she’d called them, preparation for where they were tonight, made his heart swell but the fierce need to keep her safe was foremost in his mind. He kissed the top of her head, trying to ignore her sexy curves peaking from her summery clothes, while he scanned the cars parked in their row of the drive-in movie theater. Fuck if he could just make love to his wife here and now. Why couldn’t it be that easy?

            If he wasn’t purposefully keeping his lust in check, the flowy, light purple top she had on with his favorite keyhole opening in front would have him forgetting everything he needed to concentrate on.

Their surroundings.

Her safety.

He tried to tone down his anxiety and breathed in deeply. For a second, he slipped and became trapped in that keyhole. The skin under it and two creamy swells hinting at her cleavage. Jaxon’s resolve cracked. He slid his thumb in that opening and rubbed a small circle round the sprinkling of tiny moles that lay between her breasts. Her chest heaved for him. God, she was so beautiful. His to love. His to protect.

            Lily took the hair he’d loosened for her and tossed it behind her head then scooted up his chest. Her hands left his belt loops, trailed up his tattooed arms and landed in his hair. Her hips dipped to his, touching so seductively. She gave him a look after rubbing and letting herself settle over his still controlled dick. The one that should be rock hard right now if he’d let it. She squinted, telling him she knew what he was doing and didn’t like it.

            “Honey, we’re safe here. Just like all those other places.”

            Not entirely true. Those other places had either had professional security or else they’d been in his Land Rover which just felt more badass than the blueRanchero Ranchero he and Lily had driven here tonight. Jaxon couldn’t stop looking at her, waiting for the moment when he didn’t just hear her words, but felt them too. “I’m trying, baby. So hard.” Watching the patience lace with desire for him on her face, he silently prayed, Please don’t ever let my dumb ass hurt this angel.

He would die if anything remotely close to what had happened with her sister ever happened to Lily. After all this time, he still thought about that. Guess he always would.


            “Yeah baby.”

            He felt Lily’s body through her thin clothes with every press she made to get comfy in the tight backseat. His mouth was hot and wet but could he let himself get lost in tasting her out here tonight? Fuck, he wanted to so badly.

            “Trust me,” she said, holding his face in her hands, her lips a sliver away. “Nothing bad is going to happen tonight.”

            Maybe it could be that simple, if he’d just let go of the horrible night with Trissy and realize Lily had snatched him from those dark times. Made him a better person. Her hands petting his face and neck told him she would never let him slip back to that emptiness of his old life.

            With that acceptance, he lifted the hold keeping his senses in check. The first thing to hit him was her warm fruity scent mixed with his horny, musky dude smell and the way it settled into the leather seats.

            “I love you, Jaxon,” she whispered through bitten lips. “It’ll be okay.”

            She smiled victoriously when his arms squeezed her to his chest and his bulge began to grow.

            So cute.

            She had no idea what she was in for.

            “Honey, trade places with me,” she said into his neck, sending a tickling sensation that made its way past his defenses. He couldn’t help but lift his hips and seek out her warmth he’d claimed and called home.

            “Hmm?” he managed to get out. She wanted underneath him? Maybe he was the one in for a surprise but being on top was fine with Jaxon because then he could continue to look up and scan the lot. Jaxon obliged and bumped heads, arms and legs with Lily until she lay under him, staring up with utter trust on her face. The contact jacked up his pulse and hardened him even more. She glanced down and saw it too.

           charlie's permission 5Biting his lip, he finally let go of his steely control and guided her leg until it touched and teased him to such a stiffness it was close to pain. She took over and slid her shin between his legs, in and out, driving him insane.

            The cars parked beside them he’d been cataloging all night, the movie lighting up the nighttime screen, the popcorn he’d kicked over getting her in the backseat, it all fell away as Lily, for the first time since they’d been together, was the one to push his shoulders downward. She guided him until his face was flush with her sweetness. Jaxon’s face must have shown his surprise as he felt his eyebrows lift and his jaw fall open. He swallowed against the inside of her thigh and the shred of skirt still hanging where it belonged. He gently pushed it out of the way, aware Lily was being her very bravest right now. He was stunned and proud, knowing how nervous she always got whenever he went down on her. What she did next nearly melted him.

            “Jaxon, I trust you.” Lily’s hands left his shoulders and she cupped them over her bent knees then pressed down, letting her legs open as wide as they could in the confines of the backseat.

            “Oh shit, Lily. You’re sure?”

            “Baby steps,” she whispered and then arched her back. “I want to take them for you. With you.”

            Jaxon tugged down on his favorite purple panties, feeling a sudden playfulness when he tossed them into the front seat. That’s when he knew he was in the moment with her.

That’s when he knew she was in serious trouble.

He dipped his head and sent up one last silent prayer. Thank you. After that, it was all about his wife. He kissed her stretched out hand and then replaced it at his shoulder, mouthing the words “My angel” against his favorite hot, silky spot. He delivered a lick so long and deep he knew she’d probably sealed her eyes  shut. Aware of what he was putting her through, he turned his licks to gentle kisses and suckling until her knees stopped trembling.

            “I can feel you smiling down there,” she said to him after letting out a deep breath that tumbled down her tummy and cooled his face.

            Relief at the joy in her voice did that to him. “I am.” She was his fucking rock and so generous. “Thank you for this, baby,” he said in between kisses and nibbles and her delicious little thrusts and quivers. “How many movies play tonight?” he added.


            Her answer was a short pant. She was getting close.

            “Good because I’m nowhere near being done with you.” His grin then was decidedly wicked. He pressed his mouth against her soft hairs, a second before her wet sex shook and her knees shot closed, locking his head in place.

            “Sorry, honey,” she panted.

            “Baby steps,” he said through his grin.

  1. I had always wanted to get married on valentine’s day but my boyfriend wanted to wait until the spring so sadly I didn’t get my wish however each year my husband always makes it up to me by doing something extra special for me! Thanks for sharing your excerpt and I am looking forward to reading this soon it is on my kindle but sometimes life gets in the way and you have no time! Have a great day!

    • Hi Amy! I only know one couple who have Valentines as their wedding anniversary and I think they’ll be celebrating 40 years. It sounds like you have a very sweet hubby and what a great reason for him to keep making it special each year! Glad you liked the love scene. I hope your day rocks 😉

  2. Great scene! I’m definitely going to need read the book. As for Valentine’s Day we tend to do something little for our daughter but my husband and I try to do things for each other just on random days instead of that day.

  3. Hey There Hoppers! Quick note to let you know that if you leave a comment and it doesn’t show up right away, it’s because comments are on moderation. I’ll be checking in all day every day (except when I’m asleep) to approve them because I love reading what you write! Sorry about the moderation but without it, we’d be getting spammed from her to Timbuktu. Carry on Hoppers! xoxo

    • Hi Devyns mom 🙂 I loved that! You’re absolutely right. I’d love to see your bear, very cool. I have a 6ft tall Edward Cullen cutout that hubby gifted me one year. 🙂 Good luck in the hop. xoxo

    • Anything Valentine-y? I´m not really big on Valentine´s, could be because we in Sweden don´t really celebrate Alla Hjärtans as we call it =) Dull, maybe, but less stress if you´re single

  4. Thank you for the giveaway. Love the excerpt! I’m not real big on Valentine’s Day because I believe you should show your partner everyday that you care.


  5. At the beginning of our marriage, I sent my husband balloons and flowers to work with a stuffed monkey. The balloons read, My Wild Thing. >.< He was slightly embarrassed but said he appreciated the thought. That night was pretty intense 😉


  6. This year I’m in a funk about my birthday that is 2 days after Vday so this year I don’t want to do anything for either. Except on Vday I want take out and a movie with my son and hubby.

  7. This year a couple of friends and I are having an anit-vday movie marathon of scary movies and thrillers. I am not against v-day but I have no one to really spend it with romantically so this seemed like a fun idea. But there will be lots of chocolate involved so it’s kind of V-dayish!
    Loved the excerpt!
    Thanks for the giveaway!
    Jenni Jacobs

    • Hi H.B.! You know, I totally agree with you. Any other day I’m like, should I really be eating this? But V-Day there isn’t an ounce of guilt! Hooray for Chocolate! You’re welcome for the excerpt 😉 xoxo

  8. Hi! Happy Valentines! Wonderful excerpt! Sounds so good! Cant wait to check it out! Thank you for the amazing giveaway!
