Healing Hearts 11: Tell Me You Love Me(5)

“I don’t want to talk about her like she’s just like other women. She isn’t,” Morris said.

“She isn’t like other women, that’s why we are all attracted to her. Give us something, man. How did things end?” Trek asked.

“Let’s just say we both left the room satisfied, and with the edge off.”

“Holy fuck,” Blade said.

“Exactly, but then we got the call,” Morris said.

“Which explains that expression on her face and how you didn’t even say good-bye to her,” Trek said.

“She’ll get over it. She has no choice. We aren’t dating. Aren’t anything. This is what we do. Tonight wasn’t planned. But after a taste, and feeling her mouth on me, I’m coming back for more,” Morris said, and then stopped the SUV and they all got out. “Now, let’s focus on the operation and bring back the package in one piece.”

“And get back soon so I can get a little taste next of Melina,” Vetter said.

“All of us will,” Trek said, and then they began to grab their gear and prepare.

Morris wondered how this would work, or maybe it wouldn’t. He didn’t know, so he would play it cool and whatever happened, happened. He just had to keep his brothers and himself safe. This mission was beyond dangerous, and they had to have their heads on tight and their brains functioning like Special Forces, not horny men. He thought of Melina, and how she felt in his arms, how she tasted and that she initiated the blow job that brought him much relief and pleasure. That turned him on so much. Who was it that said to get their minds on the mission? He chuckled, shook his head, and prepared like his brothers did. Please bring us all back in one piece.

Chapter 1

“What’s wrong with you?” Jo asked Melina.

Melina was doing Jo’s hair. They were going to a concert in Sussex, and Melina had come over to do Jo’s hair, because three weeks later she was still sore from the abduction.

“Nothing is wrong with me. How do you like this?” she asked, and turned her to face the mirror.

Jo smiled. “That looks incredible. Like having my own beautician.”

“I wouldn’t go that far, Jo. I know the basics.”

“You know more than basics. You always look so sophisticated and upscale in your business photos. Hey, don’t you have a shoot coming up for that new product line you mentioned?” Jo asked, remembering Melina talking about it more than a month ago.

Time had passed so quickly. Except for the last three weeks, not since Morris and his brothers had left in a hurry for some mission and still hadn’t returned. She couldn’t even ask if anyone heard from them. She couldn’t let on to what happened because it was a mistake. The more Melina thought about it, the more she realized how stupid she had been.

Blame it on the rum, but it wasn’t the rum. She was sober enough to know exactly what she had done. Nearly had sex with a man she wasn’t even dating. A man who was her best friend’s brother. A man who didn’t date, didn’t do commitments, but supposedly shared women with his brothers. She had jumped too far ahead, imagining, hoping that he and his brothers were attracted to her like she was to them. She felt uncomfortable now, and perhaps sent the wrong message to Morris. She didn’t know.

“Okay, spit it out,” Jo said to her. Melina looked toward the open door and knew that Cavanaugh, Flynn, Knight, and Leif were out there waiting on them, so they could attend the concert together. They had been worried that it may be too much for Jo, but Jo was insistent she could go and would be fine.

“There isn’t anything to spit out.”

“Liar. Come on, you never hold anything back with me.”

“I’m not holding anything back. Now are you ready or what?” Jo exhaled. “Okay, fine, but remember that I’m here if you need to talk.”

“I appreciate that,” she replied, and they headed out of the bedroom to the living room where the men were waiting. Their smiles lit up the room. The way they all looked at Jo as she exited and how Leif pulled her into his arms and kissed her.

“You look gorgeous. Are you sure you’re up for this?” he asked.
