A veil drops over her eyes and the laugh disappears. Whatever happened in therapy opened up too many old wounds she won’t show me. Right now, anyway. Then I think about what just took place between us, and I question my own sanity. What the fuck was I thinking? Sex and business should never mix. I broke one of my cardinal rules. I didn’t just break it, I pulverized the damn thing, and it’s now scattered into dust. Maybe I should pretend it didn’t happen.
But I can’t do that. And why? Because it was the most epic sex of my life. And it was with Midnight, someone I’ve developed feelings for. How the hell did that happen?
Leaning down, I take my tongue and give her pussy one last, long swipe. Then I stand and go into the bathroom to dispose of the condom. When I’m done, I pick up my discarded clothes and get dressed. Her eyes practically burn through the skin on my back, which isn’t exactly the most comfortable feeling.
Before I leave, I walk next to the bed. “I’ll be back tomorrow around the same time. And don’t tell me you didn’t like what happened between us. If you do, I’ll call you a fucking liar,” I say. I want to kiss her, but I don’t. Instead, I tug at one of her nipples and the response is immediate. She sucks in her breath and my dick twitches in my pants. I have to get out of here before I strip off my jeans and push said dick back inside her swollen pussy. I’m pretty fucking sure she’d be willing too.
On my way out, she says, “Tomorrow, I want Italian. Make it spaghetti Bolognese. And find a place that serves the best. If you’re going to fuck me like this, I need to keep up my strength.”
The corners of my mouth curve up. “Yes, ma’am. Anything else?”
“Yes. A bottle of Barolo, a Caesar salad, and some great bread. You pick the bread. And butter, none of that olive oil. Bread needs butter.”
“Demanding, aren’t you?”
“Not at all. You have the opportunity to choose your own entrée because I never share.”
I chuckle. “Dessert?”
I’d like to surprise her, but I don’t think I have a single trick up my sleeve that she hasn’t seen or experienced. That should bother me, but it doesn’t. At least not yet.
Fly Girl’s Review:
Earlier this year Teresa and I got to do an interview with A.M. Hargrove and her writing partner Terri Laine. They were such a hoot and reminded me and Teresa of us that we just had to check out their work. So when Craving Midnight came up in my TBR list, I jumped at the chance. I have to say passengers, this one is definitely a keeper on my auto buy list. She writes some steamy stuff with lots of heart, and oh, there is a happily ever after in there, with no cliffhanger. You know how I hate those cliffhangers.
This is a quick contemporary read. About 3-4 hours there is quite a bit of sex, a rape, and some kink, so brace yourself. The rape is actually the reason our hero and Midnight meet, so it is appropriate. It is pretty graphic, so if this isn’t your thing, you might want to pass. However I have to say if you can hang in there it will be well worth the wait. There isn’t too much angst between the two characters, but openness isn’t one of their strong suits, but who am I to say this isn’t normal in today’s world. By the end, they open up to one another and the secrets resolve themselves. I love that Harrison is such a good boy but can use such bad tactics when the situation warrants. I think it borders on the edge of “black and white” which is true to today.
Apparently, I judge my contemporary romances on whether I think they could work in the real world. This one works for me. I love the fix-it mentality; I’m totally a fixer so I get it. Ask my other two partners, they’ll confirm this. A.M., please give me her brother’s story; I’d love to see his happily ever after on paper. I can imagine the hell you could put him through.
I’m giving this 5 out of 5 propellers. So for lovers of steamy contemporary with a little bad boy this one is probably just right for you. Oh, by the way Midnight gets her justice in the end. Happy Reading!!!

One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, USA Today bestselling author, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn’t do something soon, it would be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So she made a quick decision to quit her job and reinvented herself as a Naughty and Nice Romance Author.
She fancies herself all of the following: Reader, Writer, Dark Chocolate Lover, Ice Cream Worshipper, Coffee Drinker (swears the coffee, chocolate, and ice cream should be added as part of the USDA food groups), Lover of Grey Goose (and an extra dirty martini), #WalterThePuppy Lover, and if you’re ever around her for more than five minutes, you’ll find out she’s a non-stop talker.
