“How does this feel?”  Damon’s soft large hands moved up and down as he worked the knots out of my shoulders. Feeling his large presence behind me brings back memories of his soft kisses running a trail up and down my chest, feeling a tightness in my chest. I block out the thoughts while standing off to the side away from the crowd.

 “Lower please,” I told Damon as he massaged my back. 

“Have you decided to go out to dinner with me?”

Tensing at his question, I moved away from his arms, and tightened my bikini back around my neck. Turned and headed toward the downstairs bathroom to continue getting myself back together. After our little quickie in Emery’s house I knew he wouldn’t just let things go without talking about commitment.

“Damon, we agreed just to keep things casual.”

“Jordan, it’s been four months, and we’ve gone on play dates with our kids. I like you, and I know you like me. Why are you so afraid to take that next step?”

“I don’t want to talk about it. Let’s just get the kids out of the water and have dinner.” 

 “Jordan, listen to me. I’m not trying to replace your husband.” He moved in closer behind me and wrapped his arms around my waist. Leaned in closer and kissed the back of my ear as I stared into the bathroom mirror.

“Just drop it okay.”

“For now, I will since the kids are around. But we’re finishing this conversation.”

Rolling my eyes at his demanding nature, I turned away, as he gripped me gently by the arm and pulls me into his chest. He leaned over to kiss me on the lips.

“Mhmmm….”

He ran his hands up and down my back and to my ass. He squeezes, and I moaned into his kiss.

            “Damon…”

I tried to pull away, and he bit my lower lip as we tongue wrestled for dominance. 

“Shit… baby either the water from your swimsuit is seeping through your bikini bottom onto my leg, or I just made you wet from a kiss. Your pussy’s calling for me to take care of hr. “Can you two try and control yourselves? We have kids running around here,” Emery said as she held JJ on her right hip and a plate of food in the other hand.

 I watched my best friend find love and have happiness after her heartbreak, now being a mom and wife to one of the wealthiest men, Jackson Pierce. She tried her best to stay away from him, but in the end, he prevailed and made her his wife. Now they’re working on baby number two. Me on the other hand, I’m still grieving my husband and taking care of my five-year-old son. 

Damon Adams is a guy I met at my son’s school. His daughter’s in the same grade as my son, and we’ve been hanging out for the last few months with our kids. He wants more, and I keep avoiding him except for when I have an appetite for what’s between his legs.

“Jordan, baby lets go upstairs for a minute. We need to talk.”

“Huh…”

“I need talk to you about something.”

I see Emery shake her head at the both of us. We sneak away to the upstairs guest bedroom in their house.

“Take that off.” Damon demanded as he pulled his shirt over his head and picked me up. I wrapped my legs around his waist, and before I could lower myself, we hear a knock at the door. 

 “Mommy, I need to use the restroom!” DJ yelled from the other side of the door.

 

Sneak Peek “Antonio and Sabrina 4 Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend

“Arghhh!!! Running toward the screams I charged into the warehouse with Carlo, Bruno and my team behind us shooting anyone that doesn’t belong to the De Luca Cartel.

Blap! Blap! Blap! Hitting two guards standing at the door. I push through the large stoned rustic door, as soon as we get it open. Nothing but the stench of death and blood to find my worst nightmare. Sabrina in a chair hunched over with blood dripping down her face, with her hands tied behind her back. I try to run toward her as Carlo and Bruno hold me back.

“Let me go! She needs me.” I shouted and pushed them both off me. Running and falling to my knees in front of her as I check her pulse. Not feeling her heartbeat I lifted her shirt and check for bullet wounds. Seeing the bruises on her face and ripped clothes. I call for Carlo to help me get her out of these ropes.

“Carlo, find something to help me get her out of here.”

He rushes over after making sure our men are stationed at every corner to monitor if anyone leaves and enters. Taking his knife from him, I cut the ropes and pull her into my chest.

“Baby, wakeup.. please Bella. I need you.”

Still not getting a response as I pick her up and carry her toward our car. Carlo holds me back and checks to make sure our men are even stationing on each exit route.

“We need to get her to a doctor as soon as possible. She’s bleeding all over.”

“Sabrina needs you to stay calm Antonio, we all know she’s strong and will get through this,” Carlo says as we walk out and a hell of gunfire meets us as we drop to the ground taking cover behind the side building.

“Where’s Sonny? Get him to pull the car around to this side with Bruno.”

Nodding in agreement, he pulls the burner phone out and sends a message. Two minutes later Sonny pulls around the side of the building as more gunfire and explosives are set off.

Pop! Pop! Pop!

Carlo looks at me, and we have a silent conversation of him backing me up with cover as I run to get Sabrina in the car. We’ve done the same routine many times over whenever we're involved in shootouts. One of us is always going to save the other.

“Don’t take your eyes off Bruno, make sure you both meet me in thirty minutes, or I’m sending more men out here. I need to get her to the hospital.” I say as I stand up with Sabrina in my arms caressing and kissing her cheek.

“Brother you can never get rid of me. Now hurry up; we don’t have much time before Bruno lets off the grenades.” Carlo said as he hugged me and kissed Sabrina’s forehead before taking off and shooting an enemy of ours.

Jumping into the car Sonny speeds off in our bulletproof SUV as more bullets sent toward our car. Turning around and seeing explosives being let off. Mentally tell myself that both of my brothers are okay. Bending down and kissing Sabrina’s forehead, I can feel her warmth around me. Taking my Jacket off and covering her up. I send another message to our medical team to make sure the room is set up at our house. Usually, we could go to the hospital, but not knowing who Ademarro has in his back pocket I’d rather be safe and have our people cove Bella’s care.

Twenty minutes later, a drive that would typically be forty-five or more. We ran every red light we could and took back roads to our home. Being in Italy this summer was supposed to be a renewal for us. Five years ago after we went through that bullshit with Alex and Camilla and the Russians. We decided to move to Italy and raise the kids here without all the extra tension. I see now that drama is going to find us no matter what. Arriving in the back to avoid the kids from seeing their mom. I refuse to let anyone carry her in the house. Taking the elevator to our bedroom. The doctors and nurses start working kicking everyone out as I place her on the bed. Leaning down to kiss her lips and send a prayer up to God. I step back, and the Doctor does whatever needs to happen to get Bella back to me.

“Antonio, Antonio wake up baby,” Sabrina says as she nudged me from my nightmare.

Book 2 of Antonio and Sabrina: Struck In Love unedited, subject to change

She pulled up to the valet at 9p.m. heading into Antonio’s
“Hi, I’m meeting Antonio DeLuca,” Sabrina said.
The Hostess smiled at Sabrina and escorted her to a private booth in the back. Antonio was already sitting inside when she approached and he gazed at her longingly, starting at her feet, and moved up to the smooth shape of her curves and small waist, to her full-figured breasts, and ended at her eyes. Antonio had lost all thought and speech as Sabrina was calling his name. 
“Antonio, is this one of the places you own?” Sabrina said.
“I’m sorry, what did you say” Antonio said. 
“I said, do you own this place?” she said.
“I don’t own it, but my family does, and they named it after me. Please, have a seat.” Antonio closed the door behind them, gently grabbed Sabrina's elbow and led her to the private booth. He told the waiter to not bother them even in an emergency. He’d call when they were ready. Antonio turned around and sat back down. 
“It’s a very beautiful place,” she said. 
“I think it’s the second most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen,” he said. Sabrina started blushing. 
“What’s the first thing?”
“You, of course,” he said.
“I think you already had a few drinks. Maybe I need to catch up,” she said.
“I can promise I haven’t had one drop of alcohol. Sabrina, let me be honest with you. I usually just meet girls, fuck and leave, but there's something about you..
“What am I supposed to say to that?”
“Say you’ll see me again.” What I'm feeling tells me your different and the feeling is mutual.
“Someone’s very confident in themselves. We haven’t even begun the first date,” she said.
“I haven’t been able to think of anything except you since we first met. I hope you feel the same way.
“I’d say that I just got out of something that was complicated. So, I can’t say I’m looking for anything from beyond tonight.”
“I can see you’ll be a challenge.”
“Do you like challenges, Mr. DeLuca?”
“It’s Antonio, and I can tell you that I always get what I want.”
“What is it that you want?” 
” You,” he said. Sabrina continued drinking her wine as Antonio was talking. “I know you want me as well,” he said. 
“And how did you come to this conclusion?”
“You’re sitting with me, aren’t you? Also, by the shortness of breath every time I touch you, longing in your eyes for me to kiss you, and if I’m not mistaken, I can smell your arousal for me even from this short distance.” Sabrina leaned across the table to whisper, “Maybe I’m just looking for a free meal,” she said. Antonio started laughing at her. 
“At least it got you here.” Antonio picked up the phone and called for the waiter to bring in the dinner. “I hope you like pasta; my family’s famous for the pasta dishes.”
“I love pasta, it’s really a nice place; does your family own a chain of restaurants?” Antonio gazed into her eyes.
“We have a few businesses, which brings me to you,” he said. 
“What about me?” she said.
“I didn’t know Jonathan Washington was your father”
“How did you find out?” she said. 
“I was at your company’s office today and opened an account,” he said. “Who did you open it with?” Sabrina said. 
“Spencer Jones.” Sabrina choked on her wine, caught off guard by Spencer's name coming up and thinking over the conversation she had earlier with him. She immediately grabs a few napkins off the table and wipes off her dress, his suit and the table. Antonio helped to clean up the mess and began to speak again. “I’m so sorry. What time did you come in today?”
“Is something going on with you and this Spencer?”
“Why would you ask that?” she said. 
“I just want to know if I have any competition that I need to dispose of,” he said. 
“That explains our conversation,” she said.
“What conversation?” he said.
“Nothing, just thinking”
”Sabrina, if something is distracting you, then I need to know about it,” he said. 
“Why?” she said. 
”Because I want your full attention on me. If anything or anyone gets in my way of having you all to myself tonight, then I want to take care of it right away,” he said. 
“Antonio, let me be honest with you. I’m not the type of girl you would normally go out with. So, maybe we should just end this meal and go our separate ways before anyone gets hurt.” Antonio looked at Sabrina in a desirable way and grabbed her hand and brought it to his lips. “I won’t hurt you, but I can’t stop how I’m feeling. You can’t tell me you don’t feel this either. I’m a very controlling, dominant, and possessive man. If someone tries to hurt someone I care about, they will understand my wrath. I’m not saying this is a relationship, but I want to figure out this attraction that we have,” he said. 
“Again, I say you may have made a bad choice in a date. I’m very controlling, a workaholic, and an independent woman. I’m not a size two like the women in your clubs, and if you haven’t noticed, I’m black. I don’t wait around for a man to figure out his shit, if you want to date me, then show me. Words don’t just charm me. I need action, trust is very important. Can you handle that?” she said. Antonio smirked. 
“Let’s get out of here,” he said. 
“I drove here, remember and where are you thinking of going?”
“Back to my place,” he said. 
“I don’t think that’s a good idea”
“Why, are you afraid to be alone with me?” 
“Has anyone ever told you that you have a big ego?” she said. 
“Has anyone ever told you that you’re a smart ass, and I want to kiss you right now to shut you up?” he said. 
“So, what’s stopping you?” She said.
