It started out like any other morning on the train.
Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle.
He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world.
Who did the stuck-up suit think he was…God?
Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it.
When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out.
I might have picked it up.
I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers.
I might have held onto the mystery man’s phone for days—until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.
When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me.
So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk’s office.
I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though.
I didn’t expect him to text back.
I didn’t expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.
I didn’t expect to fall for him—all before we even met.
The two of us couldn’t have been any more different.
Yet, you know what they say about opposites.
When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attract—we consumed each other.
Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for where I’d wind up when the ride was over.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.
Outside of the restaurant, Graham’s black car was already curbside. He must have had it waiting and called the driver when I went to the restroom.
“If you’re not going to come home with me, I insist on at least giving you a ride home to your place.”
“The subway is right around the corner. I’m good.”
He shot me an annoyed glance. “Give a little, Soraya. It’s a ride home, not a ride on my cock. And I think you know by now that I’m not a serial killer.”
“You’re so crass.”
He put his hand on the small of my back and steered me to the waiting open car door. I didn’t put up a fight. Graham was right, I was being stubborn while he had pretty much agreed to anything I demanded. Something told me it was a rare occasion when the man was this flexible.
When we arrived at my apartment, Graham walked me to the door.
“When will I see you again?”
“Well, tomorrow is Saturday, so I suppose maybe Monday on the train.”
“Have dinner with me again tomorrow?”
“I have plans.”
His jaw flexed. “With whom?”
We embarked into a lengthy stare off. His gaze was hard. When neither of us gave for a few minutes, he grumbled Christ under his breath, and before I realized what was happening, my back was against the door, and his mouth was on mine.
He kissed me as if he wanted to eat me alive. Before releasing my mouth, he took my lower lip between his teeth and tugged. Hard. With his lips vibrating up against mine, he spoke. “Don’t push me to my limit, Soraya.”
“Why? What will happen?”
“I’ll push back. And I’m trying not to do that with you.”
He was being honest, and I realized I should appreciate that. “To my sister’s house. It’s my niece’s birthday party. That’s where I’m going tomorrow night.
He nodded. “Thank you.”
It took every bit of my willpower to go inside and shut the door behind me. I leaned my back against the door, unable to remember the last time I was so hot and bothered. Maybe not ever. His mouth was sinful; the thought of what he could do with that wicked tongue other places on my body kept me in a state of arousal that bordered on frenzied. But it was more than that. The way he was so dominating and controlling, yet exercised restraint to respect my wishes, was the sexiest thing I’d ever seen. The man stimulated something that had been sleeping inside of me. I needed a glass of wine and an orgasm. Not necessarily in that order. If I was going be firm on my stance that we get to know each other and not have sex, then taking things into my own hands was absolutely essential.
In my bedroom, I stripped out of my clothes. I didn’t sleep naked every night, but tonight was definitely a bare evening. As I slipped into bed, my cell rang.
“Is phone sex on the table?” Graham’s voice was a needy rasp. Whatever cooling off my body had done since I left him on the other side of the door was instantly reheated. His voice could definitely speed things up for me. But…
“Sex is off the table. That should probably include all types of sex. Intercourse, oral, phone.”
He groaned. “Oral. God, I want to taste you. And feel that metal tongue ring on my cock. You have no idea how difficult it was to control myself tonight every time I caught a glimpse of that metal when you spoke. It’s like you’re taunting me with every word. What are you wearing, Soraya?”
That voice. I needed to record him saying What are you wearing, Soraya? So I could play it over and over again in a loop when I needed to satisfy my own needs. “I’m actually not wearing anything. I just got undressed and slipped into bed.”
“You sleep naked?”
He actually growled. “Touch yourself.”
“I plan to. But I think I’m going to need both hands tonight. So I’m going to hang up first.”
“How long do you plan on driving me crazy, Soraya?”
“Good night, Graham.” I hung up without waiting for him to respond. Even though my body physically ached for the man, I wasn’t ready to open that door with him just yet. Although as I glided my hand down my body alone in my bed, the only thing I could think of was God, I wish it was his hand.

~ 5 Graham Cracker Stars ~
Well they did it again!!!! Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland are an amazing team. These two authors have such a seamless writing style and the storylines they give us are great!!! I actually think I liked this book even more than the first book, and I LOVED Cocky Bastard.
Stuck-Up Suit is no different!! This is the second book in their Cocky Bastard Series. Each of these are stand alones. What makes them a series is the theme of the storyline. They are giving us love stories about two people who meet in unexpected places and fall in love. You don’t have to read Cocky Bastard first before reading this book. They are completely separate from one another. Although we do get a small cameo from a couple characters from the first book. ( I LOVED that!!!)
As with first book, this book had everything that I look for in a 5 star read. The storyline was interesting and unique. The pace and flow of the story were spot on. The characters were relatable and likable. This story was such a fun, sweet and sexy story, but it also had it’s moments of heartache and we can’t forget about the character everyone loves to hate. What kind of story would it be without them, they stir up the drama 😉 What I did love about this story, was even though there is some drama built into the story, I was glad to see it was short lived. I think that when authors can evoke that many different emotions from their readers the book deserves no less than 5 stars. I truly believe they have extreme talent in the literary world.
So I don’t spoil this story for anyone, I am only going to touch briefly on the storyline. In this book we meet Graham and Soraya (LOVED this name BTW). Graham is a stiff shirted executive, who isn’t very nice and Soraya is a woman who works for an advice column (Ask Ida). She is kind of a free spirit and the complete opposite of Graham. They have a chance meeting on the train one day going into work. Well I should say Soraya meets Graham, but he doesn’t know her till later on. Graham drops his cellphone on his way off the train and Soraya retrieves it. Being the good person she is, she seeks out Graham and returns the phone, but it doesn’t go that smoothly. That’s all I am going to say, you need to read this book to get their complete story. You don’t want to miss this ride;) I loved the dynamic of Graham and Soraya. Their banter was hysterical. I was laughing out loud at many parts of this book. But their love story was also a sweet one. But just like any other journey, their’s isn’t one without complications.
I do have to admit I think that each of these Heroes in this series, both Chance and Graham are my favorite characters. These guys are cocky and arrogant, but still so lovable!!! Although Soraya was an amazing heroine!! I really liked her character too.
Stuck-Up Suit is a stand alone novel with NO Cliffhanger. I would 100% recommend this book to everyone. If you are looking for a book with laughter, steamy sex scenes, and even a little drama, but also has a cocky hero who will melt you panties and make you swoon, then this is the book to read!!! This is definitely making my Best of 2016 list!!
This is a MUST READ!!!!
