"thank you, though. you're really sweet."

"tony, stop. you don't want to do this "yeah, i do," he told me. "i've wanted to do this since the first time i saw you "if luca finds out "luca isn't going to find out the finality in his tone is what caught my attention. "what's going on with luca? are you planning something with him "nothing you need to worry about," he said again. his free hand came up to tangle in my hair and he pulled it hard, forcing my face up to his. "i'll take good care of you, veda. i swear it his mouth came down on mine, and my entire body froze for a moment. as his lips moved over mine, trying to get a response out of me, i wasn't repulsed by him. not at all. but his kiss was strange, and contained none of the soul-wrenching hunger of luca's kisses. it didn't make my blood surge to the surface of my skin until i thought i would die if he didn't touch me. my heart didn't race one second and stop the next, only to start again as desire tightened low in my stomach and breasts swelled and my pussy clenched in anticipation. his body felt strange against me. he wasn't mine. and i wasn't hi i pushed against his chest and turned my face away.
