Shifting carefully, I propped my head on my hand and studied the decadent man who graced my bed. His arms were wrapped around his pillow, showing off chiseled biceps and a muscular back adorned with scratches and crescent marks from my nails. I’d gripped his ass, too, insanely turned on by the feel of it clenching and releasing as he fucked me tirelessly, stroking his long, thick cock deep inside me.

Again and again…

My legs shifted restlessly, my body stirring with renewed hunger. For all his polished urbanity, Gideon was an untamed animal behind closed doors, a lover who bared me to the soul every time he made love to me. I had no defenses against him when he was touching me, helpless to resist the drugging pleasure of spreading my thighs for such a virile, passionate male—

His eyes opened, stunning me with those vivid blue irises. He gave me a lazily seductive onceover that made my heart skip a beat. “Hmm… You’re wearing the fuck me look,” he drawled.

“And that would be because you’re so extremely fuckable,” I shot back. “Waking up to you is like… presents on Christmas morning.”

His mouth curved. “For your convenience, I’m already unwrapped. Batteries not required.”

My chest tightened with terrible yearning. I loved him too much. I was constantly worried that I wouldn’t be able to hold on to him. He was lightning in a bottle, a dream I tried to hold in my hands.

I let out a shaky breath. “You’re a delicious extravagance for a woman, you know. A luscious, mouthwatering—”

“Shut up.” He rolled over and dragged me under him before I knew his intent. “I’m filthy rich, but you just want me for my body.”

  • http://www.facebook.com/DinaMarie17 Dina Marie

    Excellent! Please don’t use same sex scenes throughout the series and don’t rush the story to end the series with the reader thinking they missed years of the journey.

    I thought I had come to terms with waiting till May but having just read this (breathing heavy now and pulse racing) I am obsessed again, definitely need EWY sooner rather than later but I will try and calm down and resign myself to be satisfied with more snipetts. Thank you Sylvia.

    Syvia, here’s the deal – i’ll take the book in whatever state it is in at the moment i.e. with spelling mistakes, bad grammar, hand written scribbles on scrappy bits of paper, anything, I don’t care what state it is in – I just need that book now!! I cant wait until May for Gideon and Eva, it’s heartbreaking!! Please? As a Christmassy pressie???

    • Mona

  • adriana biedermann


  • http://www.facebook.com/patrice.jamie Patrice Jamie

    Omg Sylvia you are Soooo Evil for teasing us like this… I have read an Entire 22 book series (which I fell in love with) since October, plus others. Yet I just can’t stay away from Eva & Gideon, you have me addicted. I just don’t know what to with myself until May, I just can’t wait that long…… But since i have no choice but to wait & suffer, I guess I’ll go read Bared To You & Reflected In You for the 4th time.

  • chantelle

    so not fair!

  • Darla

    I am so sad that we have to wait till May:(

  • Yvette Ball 1972

    I have to agree with everyone.. May is too far away! And as much as we all love Gideon & Eva, I am going to say.. Please don’t let this be the end! Write their life story till they are old and gray. Lol.. Hell, I’d be happy with just knowing they are still existing.. Reading their story has helped this 40year old through her mid-life crisis…

    I love this quote ““And that would be because you’re so extremely fuckable,” I shot back. “Waking up to you is like… presents on Christmas morning.”
    His mouth curved. “For your convenience, I’m already unwrapped. Batteries not required.”” — Thank you for the snippets.
