Too Hot To Handle
by Deanna Lynn
Luis glanced at Sher out of the corner of his eye and couldn't contain the appreciative grin that spread across
his face. She looked sexy as hell tonight and because of that, he wasn't at all sure he wanted to take her out
in public. She looked entirely too tempting in that red dress and it sure as hell didn't leave much to the imagination.
Then again, that could be just him. After all, he'd already seen the delicious looking body underneath so his
imagination already knew what secrets that dress held.
A surge of heat shot through his body as an image of them in the pool flashed in his mind. He'd made her lose
control and he wanted to do it again. Only this time, he wanted to be inside her when it happened. He wanted
to be inside her and look into her eyes as she climaxed. He groaned as an image of him and Sher naked and in the
throes of passion flashed in his mind. The seductive look in her eyes was enough to make him lose control without
even having to touch her. He shook his head and tried to clear it of the thought-stealing mental images. If he
didn't get his mind on something else and fast, they would never make it to dinner. He wasn't even sure they'd
make it to his apartment!
"Luis?" Sher asked from beside him. "Are you all right? You look awfully tense all of the sudden."
He turned to look at her and the moment he saw his own desire mirrored in her eyes he knew there was no way they
could sit across from each other in some public restaurant. The need was too strong for that. "Sher, how
hungry are you?"
"Very." She said with a mischievous grin. "But not for food."
He groaned again then made a quick U-turn and headed toward his apartment. Ten minutes later, after breaking several
more traffic laws, he pulled into the parking lot of his apartment building and shut off the engine. Then taking
a deep breath, he turned to Sher and raised a brow. He needed to make sure she knew what she was doing. He didn't
want to get up to his apartment and have her change her mind at the last minute. When she scooted across the truck
seat and pulled him into a heated kiss, he knew she wouldn't. She seemed to want it as much as he did. His hands
roamed over her back as hers gripped his hair. He knew the kiss was only a prelude to what was going to happen
when they got up to his apartment. He pulled back and lightly nipped her lip with his teeth. She shuttered in
response. God, he couldn't wait to have her underneath him.
Luis let go of her so that he could reach behind him and open his truck door. He grabbed his keys out of the ignition
then slid out and held out his hand to her. "So what do you say, sweetheart? Wanna go some place more private?"
"I thought you'd never ask." She said grabbing her purse off the seat beside her and placing her hand
As soon as her feet hit the ground, Luis pulled her into his arms and covered her mouth with his again. He just
couldn't get enough of her. Never taking his lips from hers, he reached behind them and slammed the truck door
shut. A second later, he backed her up against it and ran his hands up and down her sides. She moaned into his
mouth as his hand brushed against her breast and he knew if he didn't get them up to his apartment soon, they would
give his neighbors one hell of a show.
He pulled away, albeit reluctantly, and ran his hand down her arm to link their hands. "Ready sweetheart?"
She squeezed his hand then looked up at him and gave him a dazzling smile. "Definitely."
Luis returned her smile then turned and led her up the stairs to his apartment on the second floor. He released
her hand to search through his keys for the one that unlocked the door then once he found it, he placed it in the
lock. But before he made a move to turn it, he looked at her. He had to be certain this was what she wanted.
"Are you sure, Sher? Because we can still turn back and go to dinner."
Instead of answering him with her voice, she walked closer, placed her hand on his and helped him turn the key.
They never took their eyes off each other as they heard the click of the lock, signaling they could enter.
Sheridan heard the click of the lock and knew there was no turning back. Not that she wanted to, anyway. No,
she had wanted this from the moment she saw him and she knew he felt the same way. He didn't have to tell her.
She saw it in his eyes and felt it in his kiss. He wanted her just as much as she wanted him and that was the
reason she lowered her hand to the doorknob and slowly turned it. She smiled at him as she raised her palm to
the door and swung it open. That was apparently all the encouragement he needed, because the next thing she knew
they were inside his apartment and she was backed up against the wall.
One large hand rested on the small of her back and pulled her to him and the other began to run seductively up
and down her side. Then his mouth covered hers. She moaned at the heady sensation his kiss was causing her and
he took advantage and slipped his tongue inside. Shivers of desire raced through her body as his tongue plunged
into her mouth, exploring it with demanding mastery. She flicked her tongue against his and then it was his turn
to moan. She took the initiative to slide her tongue into his mouth, wanting... needing to taste him too. Again
and again, they explored each others mouths and again and again, his tongue glided against hers. The pleasure
was mounting fast and she thought she would die with the need for more. Her hands stole their way to the buttons
of his shirt and just as she slid the first one free, she felt his hands at the back of her dress, easing the zipper
down. As soon as the material parted and he rubbed his hands across her bare back, she pulled her head away to
look at him. His eyes were dark and intense with passion, much like she knew her own to be. He gave her a devilishly
seductive smile then raised a hand to her shoulder and slid a finger underneath the thin strap of her dress to
pull it down her arm.
One breast broke free of the material and he immediately covered it with his palm, massaging... caressing. The
feel of his rough palm against her soft flesh caused another moan to escape her lips. As his hand continued to
massage her breast, his lips started to kiss a path down her neck and over her shoulders. She arched her back
as his mouth replaced his palm and he took her hardened peak into his mouth. Her head hit the wall, but she didn't
pay it any mind. She couldn't. Not while his mouth was clamped to her breast, bringing with it all kinds of erotic
sensations. He used one hand to remove the other strap from her shoulder then in one swift motion her dress was
falling off her to pool at their feet. She stepped out of it and quickly kicked it off to the side then raised
a hand to the open space in his shirt and ran her hand over his chest. The moment her fingers touched his hardened
muscles she knew she needed more.
She raised both hands up to his chest, then gathered the material in her hands, and ripped the shirt open. Buttons
flew through the air and hit the floor with a ping. Luis raised his head in surprise then groaned as her mouth
started to cover his chest in tiny kisses. He rested his palms against the wall as she placed an open mouthed
kiss on his neck then started to work her way down his chest toward the waistband of his jeans. She lowered her
hand to the button, but before she could open it, he swung her up into his arms and covered her mouth with his.
Once they reached his bedroom, he laid her gently on the bed. But when she opened her eyes, he was nowhere to
be found. "Luis?"
Surely, he didn't change his mind. "Luis?"
"I'm right here." He called from the doorway. "I didn't want any interruptions so I went and unplugged
She shook her head and smiled at him. "You think of everything, don't you?"
"Well, I try. I also went to get these." He held a box of condoms in his hands and she watched mesmerized
as he walked toward her, opening the box along the way. He took out one foil packet then placed it and the box
on the table next to her.
Then he looked her over, an appreciative gleam lighting his eye. "God, you are so hot."
She smiled up at him. "You're not so bad yourself. However, I do think you are a little over dressed."
He laughed. "Yes, well that is for safety reasons. We wouldn't want to rush things now would we?"
"I don't know, Luis, I kind of like where it was going. In fact, I think it's its about time you came over
here and kissed me again."
"You think so?" He asked raising a brow and giving her a cocky smile.
"Mmm, hmm." She said raising a hand and crooking her finger at him. "I definitely think so."
He smiled again then placed one knee on the bed and swung his other over her hips. But instead of kissing her
like she asked, he placed his hands at the edge of her panties and tugged them down her legs then once they were
free, he threw them across the room. "Now you look exactly like I pictured you in my fantasies."
"Oh yeah? Well, in my fantasies, you weren't wearing nearly as much as you are right now. In fact,"
she said sitting up and placing her hand at the snap of his jeans. "You weren't wearing anything."
She slid the button free then started to ease the zipper down. She never took her eyes off his face as she placed
her hand inside and stroked him. He groaned and in the next second, she was flat on her back with him on top of
her. "What's the matter Luis? Afraid I'll make you lose control?"
"Sweetheart," He said leaning close to her ear. His warm breath hit the side of her face and she shivered.
"I'm so close to the edge right now, it wouldn't take much to make me lose control. In fact, I think it's
time you caught up with me."
She felt his hand slid down her hips and over her thigh. Then he cupped her intimately and she arched off the
bed. "Mmm, you are so wet."
He leaned down to place a light kiss against her lips then pulled back and looked into her eyes. Then he whispered,
"Open your legs for me, sweetheart."
She couldn't help but meet his request. The huskiness in his voice and the look in his eyes was hypnotic. The
minute she opened her legs, his mouth covered hers in a fiery kiss as his finger slipped inside and began to stroke
her gently. She moaned at the passionate magic he started inside her. He was a magician and she was his ever-willing
Luis loved how responsive she was. Every touch, every caress he gave her, she responded and met him with one of
her own. Give and take, take and give. This had to be the most erotic sexual experience of his entire life.
Never before had he felt so much with a woman. That should have worried him, but it didn't. It couldn't. He
was too lost in the moment to really delve into what the emotions running through his body meant.
She moaned again and he knew she was as close to the edge as he was. He pulled away and grabbed the foil packet
off the table beside him. He tore it open then once he had rolled it on, he settled himself between her thighs.
He smiled down at her then reached up to move the damp tendrils off hair off her face. Her eyes were filled with
passion and he felt a tug in his heart as she broke out into a breathtaking smile. "God, I want you."
She raised a hand to his face and lightly fingered his jaw. "I want you too, Luis. Right now."
That was all he needed to hear. He entered her slowly giving her body time to take him in. Apparently, Sher disagreed
with going slow because she wrapped her legs around his hips and took him all the way inside her. The moment their
bodies joined, Sher captured his mouth in a steamy kiss. As he began to move inside her, she raked her nails across
his back and he thought for sure he would lose it. But he was determined to make Sher lose control first.
He felt the waves of passion start to take her, and he pulled back to look at her. She had her eyes closed. "Open
your eyes, Sheridan. I want to see you."
The moment he said her full name, her eyes flew open in surprise. He couldn't blame her, he was a little surprised
himself. Her name had rolled so easily off his tongue. He wasn't sure why he had used it. He'd always made sure
he thought of her as Sher. He certainly didn't want to think about what saying her full name now meant. He moved
within her again and he saw the effect in her eyes. She was close, he thought, very close. He placed his hand
on her breasts and took her hardened peak between his thumb and forefinger. In the next instant, she lost all
The sound of his name on her lips as she climaxed caused his own control to snap. He held her body to him, as
wave after wave hit her and then just as the last one took her, he let himself go. The power of his release shook
him to the core. Never had he felt such a powerful climax. And as he collapsed on top of her, one thing became
perfectly clear. He had seriously miscalculated his assessment of a no strings attached affair, because somehow,
someway, she had gotten to him. Now the only question was what was he going to do about it.
