The steamy sequel to BREAKING THE STORM by Sedona Venez.
He’s flawed like a MF, but I want him.
It couldn’t be normal to dislike him and want him all at the same time.

Ryker Alfero
Wolf-Shifter. Tattooed. Dangerous. Off-limits. Everything I crave — and everything I shouldn’t want.

“I would love to see what else that dirty little mouth can do.” With those little words, my body shivered as a surge of energy zipped into my body, unlocking something that I didn’t understand. My brain started functioning with a clarity I hadn’t experienced in years. No warring emotions, just calmness.

This shouldn’t be happening, especially not with him. God. This is going to be a rough damn ride.

“I’ll do my best to break you in slowly, submissive,” he hissed with a voice dripping with raw sex. He took my hand, clasping it tight when a jolt of electricity ran through both of us. His thumb caressed my hand.

Is total submission inevitable?

“When I get you under me, it’s going to be slow, hard and memorable.” ~ Ryker

I have other plans.

“Go find yourself a woman stupid enough to settle for less than you’re willing to give. Whose heart you can break without giving a sh*t. This woman is off limits.” ~ Lightning

In a blink of an eye, before I realized what I was doing, I walked over to him, straddling him and cupping his face.

His sea-green eyes snapped open. “Light? What the hell are you doing?” The deep timber of his voice sent a shiver down my spine. Damn, it was sexy. “I’m spiraling out of control. And when I get like this, I’m dangerous. And nothing can calm my beast except time to cool down.” 

I didn’t move. Instead, I ran a finger across the scar on his left eyebrow. Strangely, he leaned his face into my hands tenderly, wrapping his arms around my back. I tried not to blink in shock. Dammit, he was turning out to be exactly the opposite of what I envisioned. Despite his hard, steel demeanor, I felt the passionate streak that ran through his core. He actually cared about his pack and Others. This wasn’t what I envisioned him to be as an Alpha from a ruthless bloodline. 

I ran my fingers across his well-groomed, dark beard, enjoying the softness. He growled low and sensually. I felt the slight prick of his claws through my shirt, which normally would have sent me sprinting away, but there wasn’t anything normal about this strange connection between us. Slowly, I felt his claws retract and his blunt fingers caress my back. 

His full focus was on me, the attention giving me little shivers of awareness as we stared at each other, speechless, faces mere inches apart. Ryker leaned into my body, pressing his lips against mine before he sucked my tongue into his mouth. My tongue slid around the tip of his, then rubbed under it. My body pulsed with need, and every cell was focused on him. His hands slid up to my neck, grabbing the back of my head possessively before kissing my throat gently. The contradiction between the hardness of his grip on my hair and the gentleness of his kiss sent a shiver down my spine, my mind imagining all of the other delicious things his mouth could do. 

What would those big hands feel like on my body? My skin quivered at the thought.
