After working on the house all day Sunday, I called Kelsey the following morning. I had a limited time with her. I wasn’t going to waste it by dragging things out. Especially now that I’d had a taste of her explosive heat. A taste of the fire that melted all her ice.
“Hello?” Her voice was scotch and honey.
“What’re you wearing?” I asked.
“Archer, I’m at work,” she said tartly.
“In a classroom?”
“No. I’m in my office.”
“So tell me what you’re wearing.”
There was a pause. Taut energy crackled over the line.
“Archer, I had rules because I have boundaries—”
“One rule,” I told her. “No boundaries. Not with me.”
“Or what?” she challenged.
“Or you don’t get fucked.”
She inhaled sharply. “You are so crude.”
“Uh huh. And you like it. What are you wearing?”
“A suit.” She sounded cross. “A tailored, gray wool suit.”
“A blue, Brooks Brothers dress shirt.”
“And under that?”
“I’m not going to tell you.”
“I dare you to tell me,” I said.
“I do not accept the dare.”
“Then I double-dog dare you.”
She gave a muffled laugh, like she was trying not to. “What are you wearing?”
“Jeans and T-shirt. I’m all hot and sweaty from working.”
“Really?” Now she sounded intrigued. “Are you wearing a tool belt?”
“Tell me about your sexy underwear,” I said.
“You’ve got a bad attitude, lady. You need to be spanked as well as fucked.”
She made a noise that sounded like a half groan, half laugh. “You do go all out, don’t you?”
“You haven’t seen anything yet. You ever been spanked?”
There was a second of silence, as if she was thinking.
“No.” She almost sounded surprised. “I haven’t.”
“First time for everything. What color is your bra?”
A sigh came over the line. “Blue, okay? Dark blue silk with white trim.”
“Are they wet?”
“God, Archer. Yes.”
I rubbed my erection through my jeans. “What about your shoes?”
“Navy pumps with three-inch heels.”
“I’ll be at your place at seven,” I said. “I want you waiting in your heels and
lingerie. Nothing else.”
“And if I’m not?” she replied, putting some of that ire back into her voice.
“You’ll be in trouble.”
“So if I am, I avoid… um, punishment?”
I laughed. “Nice try, storm girl. But you’re getting spanked no matter what.”
Break the Sky by Nina Lane was a wonderful book. In Break the Sky the reader meets Professor Kelsey March who has a rough day at King University and is drowning her sorrows at a bar. A sexy as sin, rough biker-looking man catches her eye. She soon finds herself kissing this handsome stranger but knows that she will never see him again so she puts a stop to her out-of character behavior. The next day Kelsey visits her colleague and good friend Dean West (you might remember him from the Arouse series); ironically, the sexy stranger, who she finds out is Archer, is Dean’s young brother. The two are soon pulled together and so begins their story.
I thought this book started a little slow but eventually picked up. Ms. Lane’s characters had off the charts sexual chemistry which she displayed by in numerous scenes (yeah). The writing was HOTT! I also found myself emotionally vested in Archer’s and Kelsey’s characters. There were times I felt their happiness and excitement; other times where I was feeling their pain and was about in tears myself. Archer challenged Kelsey in ways that she didn’t challenge herself and Archer wanted to be a better person because of Kelsey. I also thought that Kelsey’s mom was a pretty smart woman too. Overall, I enjoyed reading Break the Sky and would definitely recommend it to others.
