“The bedroom’s down the hall.” Hailey groaned out that encouragement.
“I don’t need a bedroom, princess. I just need to call Cole.”
“Ah!” Hailey shoved back as hard as she could, breaking his damn spell before she said something stupid. “Why you got to be like that, Kyle? Ruin my moment?”
“Because I have a compromise to offer you.” The little bastard made her feel like the mouse in a cat’s house with that smile. Hailey didn’t trust that smile.
“Something to help with them bags, princess, because, honestly, they ain’t attractive.”
She should have known. “Kyle, do you want to die today?”
“Okay, okay.” He held up his hands in defense but didn’t slink back out her door. “I was just going to suggest a porno-date night, but—”
“A porno what?” Despite her best efforts not take him seriously, that caught her off guard on the preposterous scale. Kyle proved his willingness to go extreme as he stepped back into her and growled out in that husky way he knew made her knees wobble.
“You know, a porno-date night. You dress a little slutty, come on over to the house, and Cole and I will show you what ‘just sex’ is all about.”
Just the mere idea had her heart racing, and blood flushed through her veins, warming her up for the melt down. “You’re serious.”
“Like a pitbull after his bone, princess. See, I’ve been thinking, and it isn’t right to use sex as a weapon. That’s what we’re all kind of doing and it’s hurting us all, so I say we wise up and call a temporary truce.”
“A porno-date night,” Kyle repeated.
He meant a three-way, porno-date night, but he couldn’t understand why she had to say no to his offer. Only a fool would sleep with a man she’d already set up to seduce another woman. Right? It had almost happened a week ago, but a week ago she hadn’t liked Cole, but now she kind of feared what she’d done, worried that she might end up hurting herself.
“What do you say, princess?”
Hailey’s jaw clenched because she couldn’t tell him no, even knowing Cole was setting up to betray her. “If I said yes, it would be a no-thrills kind of deal. Straight sex. None of your deviant games.”
Almost immediately his head tilted as his eyes glanced down over her shoulder. “Well, we probably should start stretching that ass. You’ll be thankful for it when Cole’s leash comes off.”
Hailey shivered at that blunt comment, but she refused to let that distract her. “I’m not just talking about that. I’m talking no ropes, no ties, no binds, no toys—”
“Nothing that I don’t own.”
There came that wicked grin. “You gonna bring your collection with you?”
“Nothing beyond a dildo and lube.”
“Boy, your collection sucks.”
“I’m serious, Kyle.”
“I know and that’s what’s so depressing. You gonna tack on no form of bondage and domination of any kind and really suck the joy out of my day?”
Kyle’s laughter didn’t infect her. Hailey’s mind still stared down the realization of what she’d just agreed to. And why not?Cole might be a bastard, but that didn’t change the fact that she wanted him. What it would change was the level of his humiliation.
Hailey’s mind latched back onto the argument she sold herself on in her garage a week back. Sleeping with Cole would only add to his shame, not hers, so she might as well enjoy the ride. Especially given that Kyle had just negotiated away all the bells and whistles Cole liked to threaten her with, though one rule remained to be stated.
“And no means no.”
“Doesn’t it always?”
“There will be no more of this just kiss her and she’ll forget about that stupid objection. No means no. Got it.”
“You know, Hailey, you’re really taking all the fun out of porno-date night.”
“Fine. No means no. No bondage. No domination. Can I at least still get a blow job?”
“Sure. I can spare the five minutes. You want it now?”
The second the words broke the air, Hailey knew she’d regret them in the very near future. At least they took the smirk off Kyle’s face. Still, that comfort seemed a little hollow as he leaned in to issue only one challenge.
“Let’s see if you have the balls to show up first. Seven o’clock. ” With that he straightened up to give her a quick, almost dismissive look. “And see if you can actually find something appropriate to wear, princess.”
