Blog Tour: Excerpt and GIVEAWAY: Always Yours, Baby by Airicka Phoenix
How could someone so pure want filth like him?
Damon Comb was no stranger to pain, hunger, loneliness, and abandonment. Being given a family that would die for one another didn’t erase six years of torture. It didn’t take away the nightmares. She did. She was everything someone like him should never be allowed. She was goodness and strength and she made him human.
How could someone so broken complete her?
Willa McClain had it all, a family that adored each other, the love of an entire town and a future she worked her butt off to get. But all she wanted was the boy with the sad blue eyes and the crooked smile. He was her best friend, her protector and the only one who really understood her.
How could a love like theirs be extinguished?
But nothing ever lasted forever. Damon knew better than anyone how quickly the tides could change. Can he keep his past at bay before it consumes the only light in his dark world? Can he finally tell Willa the truth, or will his fears tear them apart forever?
How could love so strong ever fail?
Against his ribs, her heart had picked up pace. It pounded against him like a frightened bird in a cage. But when she spoke, her voice was an even whisper.
“Will you kiss me?”
His own heart slammed into his chest. He knew she must have felt it beneath her flattened palms. But all he could focus on was her timid request.
She shifted, not to get away, but the gesture skimmed her hardened nipples against his side and the front of his boxers tightened.
“Just a kiss.”
The hand still curved along her cheek tilted and he brushed her moving lips with the pad of his thumb.
“God, yes,” he groaned.
Her shaky breath echoed around them. He could feel her trembling and wondered if it was from fear or anticipation.
She swallowed audibly. “Okay.”
The sheets rustled as she scrambled off him, taking her warmth with her. Damon shoved himself up and reached for the lamp; if he was going to finally kiss her, he wasn’t going to do it with the lights off. He wanted to see her. He wanted to watch her eyes and see the emotions when he finally closed that tiny remaining ounce of space between them. This moment was too important to hide in darkness.
She sat a mere foot away, bare legs curled beneath her. Her hair was a straight, silk sheet down her back and around her hunched shoulders. Her blue eyes watched him, wide and shiny. A wet, pink tongue flicked over her lips and he found himself studying the now moist curves.
He knew their shape. He knew all her shapes. He could draw her from memory alone, every inch of her. She was a beautiful fantasy tattooed to his heart, bright and bold and forever his.
Her mouth was small. The bottom half was full and perfectly curved to compliment the twin little peaks on top. Together, they formed a perfect little heart. He wondered if she would taste as sweet as she looked, as sweet as she felt and smelled. He could barely contain his excitement.
“Come here,” he whispered, motioning her to him with a jerk of his head.
She never hesitated.
She crawled to him. Damon waited until she was just close enough to pull over his outstretched legs. Her knees bracketed his hips as her pert little bottom settled perfectly on his thighs.
There was nothing intimate in the gesture and yet everything intimate. They had sat like that before. He had held her like that before. But everything about that moment crackled with a pent up tension that made his breath come out short and his heart miss several beats. His hands ached to touch her. His mouth tingled with the need to taste her. He needed her so badly everything hurt.
Just a kiss! He reminded himself. Only a kiss. That was all. Just one kiss.
