I’ve been called a flirt.

A ladies’ man.

A perpetual bachelor.

And they’re not wrong.

I like to keep my options open.

When my buddy asks me to be the Best Man in his Vegas wedding, I never expected to end up on the other side of the altar.

After one raucous night and a huge misconception, I find myself in need of a wife. A deal of a lifetime depends on it.

The cute, curvy Maid of Honor agrees to take on the role. It’s only temporary, just until I seal the deal for my family’s winery.

Problem is, the more time I spend with her, the less pretend our relationship feels.

It’s just a simple game of Bride and Groom, until it isn’t.

Forever was never part of the plan.

I wrapped my arms around his neck, holding onto him for support as we kissed, needy, greedy. Almost as if we’d never be sated.

I could do this forever.

The thought skittered through my mind as Benji tugged at the zipper of my dress, easing the silky fabric off my body, letting it fall to the floor in an expensive pool of Versace.

“You are so fucking beautiful,” he whispered, his voice reverent, his pupils dark. He fisted his hands in my hair, kissing me hard, nipping at my lower lip. Wet heat pooled in my lace panties as my fingers flew blindly over the buttons of his shirt, easing his shirt open inch by inch.

“I want this off you. Now,” I said, plucking the crisp fabric out of his pants.

“Not a problem, princess.” He popped the remaining few buttons, sending them skipping across the marble floor. Tearing off the rest of his clothes, he scooped me up in one quick move, eliciting a gasp from my lips.

Kicking at my heels, I struggled to free my feet as he carried me into the bedroom.

“Leave them,” he said, his voice low and commanding.

His tone combined with the smolder in his eyes sent an excited ripple shooting straight through me, all the way to my core. I very much liked this side of Benji—assertive and in control. A distinct pivot from his laidback surfer persona, but oh-so-fucking hot.

He sat me on the edge of the bed, running his hands up the inside of my thighs, spreading my legs wide for him.

“I’ve been waiting for this. I want to taste you.” He pressed on my shoulder, urging me back onto my elbows as he knelt between my thighs. Gently, he kissed the outside of my panties, licking at my clit through the thin fabric. I pulsed beneath his tongue, the first tremors of an orgasm already building.

He gazed up at me, a wicked grin on his lips, then hooked his thumb in my panties and dragged them down my legs. Caressing the inside of my thighs, he dipped back down, licking and sucking, his tongue gliding up and down, swirling in and out of my slick folds.

“Ohgawd. I. Oh,” I moaned, not even remotely coherent at this point.

His chuckle vibrated against my clit. “I take it this is good for you.”

“It works,” I somehow managed to stammer.

He sucked my clit into his mouth and I let out a long, low moan.

“This is too easy,” he said, running his hands over my stomach.

“Oh, don’t stop,” I whispered, almost begging.

In answer to my plea, he slid one finger, then two, into me and I bucked against his hand.

“You’re so gorgeous, I love how ready you are.” He moved back and forth inside me, hooking his finger to hit my G-spot and I shuddered, every inch of my body on fire.

He slowly withdrew and my eyes flew open.

“Don’t worry, that was the warm-up,” he said before standing and darting into the bathroom.

A few seconds later, he was back, foil packet in hand. “I take it you’re good with this?” he asked, waving the packet in the air. I nodded and he ripped it open, sliding the condom over his long, hard cock. A cock I very much wanted inside of me right this minute.

“Take your bra off. I want to see every beautiful inch of your body when I’m riding you,” he commanded.

My cheeks flamed, and I marveled at how turned on I was by this man. Charming and dominant; I felt like I’d finally met my match.

“What if I don’t want to?” I teased, pressing my lips together in a flirty smile.

“Oh, you want to, princess, I promise you that.” He winked and another hot rush flooded through me.

I leaned up and unhooked my bra, tossing it to the ground.

“Good girl. Now lay back on the pillows and get comfortable. That’s right. Yeah, perfect.”

Benji climbed onto the bed, straddling me, then pressed his hot mouth on mine, devouring me. We kissed, hard and fast and furious, barely able to breathe. His hands explored my body, lighting up my skin everywhere he touched, energy pinging through my body like a frenetic pinball. My breathing was quick, shallow, as he brought me close to the edge.

“Benji,” I murmured. He squeezed my nipple, then lapped at it with his tongue. “Please.”

“Please what, princess?” He squeezed my other nipple and I arched my back up towards his hand, craving more contact. “What do you want? Tell me.”

“Please. I need you,” I gasped, my voice reedy, breathy. I reached down, running my hand up and down the hard length of his cock.

“Are you ready?” He gazed at me, his pupils dark with desire.

I nodded, barely able to even form the words, I wanted him so badly.

“Yes,” I whispered.

He answered my need, gripping my hips and sliding all the way inside me in one long, smooth stroke.

“Oh. Yes,” he hissed, as I adjusted to his length, the feeling of him, as we merged together.

As I ran my hand over his smooth, muscled back, he picked up speed, finding a rhythm that worked for both of us. Every inch of my skin was on fire, tingling and electric. Being with Benji felt so damn good, I never, ever wanted it to end, but I was charging towards ecstasy and I couldn’t stop if I tried.

“That’s it, come for me, baby. Let it out,” he whispered against my neck, kissing the tender skin.

His words sent me spiraling out of control, right over the edge. I came hard and fast, shattering around him. He followed my lead, pumping harder as I climaxed, finding his release.

We gripped each other tight, holding onto one another as we rode the wave, our skin slick with sweat, our breathing heavy.

He collapsed back onto the bed, pulling me onto his chest. I inhaled deeply, the scent of him filling my nose, his skin hot and smooth against my cheek.

“That was amazing,” I whispered into the dark as he stroked up and down my back.

“Babe. That was round one.”

I giggled, even as my sated body lit back up. “Can you handle round two?” I teased, gazing up at him through my dark lashes.

“The question is: can you?”

“Oh, you’re on, Mr. Ashford. All. Night. Long.”
