An excerpt from Texting All Hearts
The Dom Delivers
Ayden threw his head back and laughed. “God, I love how honest you are about what you think and feel.”
The deep melodious sound of his amusement tightened things in Jenna’s core. She squeezed her thighs together and struggled not to squirm.
Kassie cleared her throat. “What can I get you two this morning?”
Ayden’s attention never left Jenna’s face and she chalked another brownie point in his favor. He raised an eyebrow in question. “I will leave the decision in the pretty lady’s hands.”
Jenna’s stomach growled. Her nerves had evaporated with Ayden’s appearance and her mouth watered at the thought of hot pancakes smothered in maple syrup with bacon. She giggled and placed two orders for exactly that, except she added a side of hash browns for Ayden.
When Kassie left to get their two glasses of orange juice, Jenna took in the smirk hovering around Ayden’s lips. “Okay, spill. What did I do now, to amuse you?”
His eyes flared with blistering heat for a second, and Jenna’s body trembled like he had a direct link to her erogenous zones. She pictured him tying her to the brass headboard of her bed, and watching her writhe under his talented hands with the same smirk gracing his handsome features. Where the heck had that thought come from?
Ayden’s intense gaze settled into a simmer, and he sighed. “Little one, I’m not sure amuse is the correct term. Intrigue, inspire, captivate, enchant… arouse. All of those things apply, but if I’m amused, it is with myself and how I feel like a hormone laden teenager hanging on your every word.”
Jenna’s face burned at the bald statement delivered in the sexy rasp of his deep voice. Her head spun, and she picked up a menu to fan away the flames. “Holy crap, Ayden. Are you for real? You don’t know me. How can you be so…”
He chuckled. “Sure? Let me let you in on a secret, little one. We have been getting to know each other over the past nine months. Now, I’ll tell you what I’ve managed to figure out. Would you like that?”
