Gibson Martin has always loved two things, to cook and to sing. One of them he excels at, the other, well his motto is if you don’t like it, leave. When he meets Alpha, Talon Ramirez, who happens to be his mate he’s overjoyed the man doesn’t grumble about his voice, which others compare to an animal dying.
Talon Ramirez thinks his mate’s off-key singing is adorable. He especially likes the way Gibson’s loses himself to the music while shaking his ass and singing his heart out while cooking the best food Talon has ever tasted. Now he just needs to find a way to keep his mate safe while the rebels plan an attack against Juarez that will devastate the city.
Will they be able to overcome the danger in store for them? Will Gibson’s singing get any better?
Or will Talon’s men need to buy earplugs?
Gibson flipped all of Talon’s switches. Big expressive eyes that burned with desire just about broke Talon’s resolve to go slow. Only his desire to give to his mate time had Talon able to control himself.
Talon smiled down at his mate. He placed his hand around the nape of Gibson’s neck to draw him closer. “I’m sure you know about mates from Zeke but I need you to understand, once I claim you there will be no turning back. You’ll be mine, body and soul.” He knew his words might scare off Gibson but Talon was a dominate man. Hiding it wouldn’t do either of them any good.
Hazel eyes flashed with fire. “As long as you understand, you’ll belong to me, body and soul, also.”
A huge smile crossed Talon’s face as he realized just how strong his mate was. “Got it, sweetness.”
He leaned down to kiss that lush mouth but Gibson leaned away from him. Gibson stood there with a look of contemplation for several moments. Worried his mate had changed his mind about mating, Talon waited Gibson out.
Finally Gibson said, “I’m not sure I like that nickname, but for now I’ll let it go.” Pushing up on his tiptoes, his mate slammed their mouths together for breath-stealing kiss.
Tongues dueled for dominance until Gibson finally capitulated. The fact that his mate didn’t easily give just inflamed Talon more. When his mate finally did surrender, Talon couldn’t deny the thrill of victory that surged through his veins.
Needing to touch more skin, his hands quickly pulled Gibson’s shirt over his head. Talon lips trailed down his mate’s neck. A gasp of pleasure told him he’d hit a hot spot. He continued to nip the area where he would mark his mate as his.
For several minutes he nipped, licked, and sucked the sensitive area all the while divesting Gibson of his pants. Thankfully Gibson had already kicked off his shoes, for Talon had forgotten to remove them first. If he didn’t find a way to calm down, he’d end up rushing this, but for the life of him, Talon wasn’t sure how to slow down. Gibson was everything he’d ever imagined in a mate and he wanted to bury himself in the man.
His hands roamed over the creamiest skin he’d ever felt. The texture was like pure silk, it was so soft. When his hands reached Gibson’s ass, he couldn’t help kneading those muscular globes as he spread them apart while one finger rubbed against that puckered hole.
His mate’s head rolled back on his shoulders while his ass arched back into Talon’s touch. A deep groan spilled from Gibson’s kiss-swollen lips. Gods, his mate was breathtaking. He pulled Gibson closer once more so their groins were rubbing against each other.
“Oh fuck!” Gibson exclaimed. “That feels so good.”
Talon couldn’t take his eyes off his mate as he started to thrust against him. The friction on his prick was mind blowing. Gibson would thrust forward, then arch back to get more pressure from Talon’s finger against his hole. Talon let him continue his beautiful dance as those hips moved to music only Gibson heard.
As much Talon wanted to see his mate fall apart in his arms, he wanted them naked first. Reluctantly, he pulled his hands from that perfect ass. Gibson’s whimper of denial almost had him changing his mind. Forcing himself to take a step back, Talon sucked in air at the perfection before him.
It was all lean muscle and silky smooth skin with one small exception, nipple rings. Reaching out with one hand, he flicked the one on the right. His mate gasped. “Do you shave?” Talon asked even as he flicked the other ring.
A pretty blush crept up Gibson’s neck going into his cheeks even as his chest arched for more of Talon’s touches. “I had it removed permanently.”
There were laser treatments that would allow someone to never have to shave but he’d never actually met anyone who’d done it. Of course he’d never cared enough to ask anyone before. He had to admit it was sexy as fuck. Licking his lips, he asked, “Everywhere?”
Seeing the lust in Talon’s gaze, Gibson’s lips turned up while his eyes flashed mischief. Instead of a verbal answer, he turned around bent over, showing his hairless rosebud.
Talon groaned loudly. He had to thump his cock hard to stop himself from spurting in his jeans. As it was, they were wet as his cock was dripping a steady stream of pre-cum. No longer able to take this slowly, he ripped his own clothes off his body. When he saw Gibson staring at him with his mouth wide open he gave his mate a wicked smile
“Fuck me,” his mate whispered.
Talon couldn’t deny the rush of pleasure at his mate’s reaction. “That’s the plan,” he told Gibson before picking him up and throwing him on the bed.
