DIRTY DEALERS By Tia Louise

The waves echo in the shelter of the boardwalk, and Logan stops. “Here we are.” A smile is in his voice, but I’m confused. “Don’t you recognize it?”
I’m on the spot, and I’m racking my brain for the right answer. “We spent a lot of time all over this place.”
He catches both my hands. “I saw you for the first time right here. You had your back against that post, and you were reading… something.”
Reaching out, I slide my hand down the weathered wood. “The sun was so bright that day.”
“I was jogging, and there you were.”
“You went right past me then turned around and came back. Why did you do that?”
“Hm…” He takes a few steps away, toward the water. “You were so beautiful. You were so absorbed in that damn book. I’m pretty sure your nose was touching the pages.”
“I was trying to hide,” I say, remembering. Embarrassment heats my cheeks. “I was checking out your butt when you suddenly turned around and caught me.”
Happiness and sadness fight it out in my stomach. I’d been so innocent back then.
Logan steps closer, his large hands covering my waist. That sexy grin is in his voice, and I can’t deny the hum it sets off under my skin. “You were checking me out?
The heat from our bodies is intoxicating. My fingers move from his wrists up his muscled arms, and I can’t seem to breathe normally. “It was a new experience for me.”
“I remember your level of experience.” He leans forward, and my lips are heavy. I remember my first time, our first time. He’d been so gentle, so amazing.
“Don’t tell me it wasn’t a new experience for you.” I try to tease him. “I’m sure you’d never been attracted to a bookworm before.”
“Every guy has a sexy librarian fantasy.”
“Even massively handsome jocks?”
“Those in particular.”
Jesus, that grin in his voice has me right back to all the ways he’d made me feel—light and free and so sexy. I’d never felt sexy a day in my life before him.
“Logan—” His name escapes on a sigh just before he takes my mouth.
As always, his kiss is consuming, and I’m right there with him, holding the sides of his face and opening my mouth. Our tongues collide, and heat floods my pelvis. I’d decided earlier it would be best not to sleep with him, but when he lifts me and slowly eases us to a sitting position, me straddling his lap, I know I won’t be doing what’s best.
His hands are on my waist, and my knees dig into the soft, cool sand as I push up on them, holding his face in my hands. I kiss him like I’m tasting fine wine, so delicious.
Large hands grip my legs, sliding under my skirt, moving higher to the tops of my thighs. My mouth breaks from his, and I exhale a moan. The desire is excruciating.
In my kneeling position, his face is right at my breasts. I feel the scruff of his beard against my skin, and I quickly pull the string of my bikini top. It falls loose, and I rake my fingers desperately along the V-neck of my dress, spilling out my breast and allowing him to pull a tight nipple into his mouth.
“Oh, god, yes,” I gasp, clutching his cheeks and tracing my fingernails through his soft beard.
He makes a groaning sound as his hands find the seam of my bikini bottoms, teasing me. My thighs shake with desire. My forehead is hot. I can barely take it anymore when a thick digit goes inside me, and I lose control.
“Logan…” My nails dig into the skin of his shoulders.
“Shit, Kass,” he hisses as his fingers invade, deep and curling. His voice is low. “You’re so wet… I want you so much right now.”
“Please…” I slide my tongue across his top lip before pulling it into my mouth. “Please don’t stop.”
I barely have time to react. His hands move down my back, and he rolls us so that I’m lying on the hill of sand under the boardwalk. His head is at my waist, kissing a line along my hipbone, moving lower. “I want to taste you.”
