Kingsley Lennox, AKA King, has been dubbed a genius of the architectural world. Anything he touches turns to gold, and being as successful as he is, his work is his number one priority. He doesn’t have time to date or deal with the slew of women that gawk at him just because of his perfect face and chiseled body. Plus, no one has interested him enough to give a shit, until the smart mouthed Everly Adams, AKA Ever, wakes to the noise of him restoring the building next door to hers.
Ever, like King, doesn’t have the time or the desire to date, she’s been through so much. So when she meets King, she can’t help but want nothing at all to do with the arrogant asshole. For one, they share nothing in common. For another, he’s pompous, cocky, and throws his money around as if that will win her heart. Did I mention he’s fucking crazy and very controlling? No, thank you!
But when King sets his mind to something, he accomplishes it…always has, always will. Ever is the biggest challenge he’s faced, but will she be the only person he can’t impress?
Can King win her over, all while hiding the truth about who he really is?
“Six hundred dollars,” the woman says and politely I set it down.
“We’ll take it,” King announces and counts six hundreds out of a stack of cash.
“No way,” I shout.
“Don’t start with me,” he says and reaches over my head handing the woman the money as she wraps the pan in tissue paper and then bags it. “Have a good day,” he says taking it from her and handing it to me.
“You can’t do that.”
“You can’t control me with your money, buying me all these things whenever you see fit.”
He looks around for his aunt and my dad who are engrossed in the finds of another tent, and then he drags me behind a SUV, pressing me hard against the hot exterior of the car. I stand frozen, not sure what to do as he pushes himself against me and says, “Don’t you see who’s controlling who here? It’s you…you’ve got the fuckin’ power over me.” His voice is laced with passion. His cock throbs against my clit as he touches my lips again with his soft fingers. Our foreheads are resting against each other’s and I want him to kiss me, to do something…anything. But he doesn’t make any other moves except for closing his eyes. I realize then that I am holding on to his sides, and I gently trail my fingers over his muscled skin.
“Mmm,” he growls like an animal, ready to be unleashed from its cage.
“There you two are,” my dad exclaims and we quickly separate. My face beet red, but my dad doesn’t seem to care. “We were gonna grab a bite to eat, do you guys wanna join us?”
“Yeah,” I answer, knowing I need to eat and to be around other people than alone with King. But who’s “we”? King’s aunt? They seem to have made an instant connection.
I don’t make it a few steps and King pulls me backwards.
“Stop it, my dad already caught us and I haven’t even met your aunt yet.”
“No, you stop it. Don’t you see what you’re doing to me?” He looks down and my eyes follow to his very apparent strained dick. I squeeze my thighs, trying to restrain myself from touching him as I swallow.
“Goddammit, Ever, would you try and stop being so fucking sexy?”
“What am I doing?”
“Clenching your thighs and swallowing.” He’s breathing hard, obviously struggling, and I cannot believe the power I have over him. Is this how it’s been all along? Is this why he’s been so aggressive?
“Well, you’re going to have to man up.”
