I had so much fun reading through last week’s Sneak Peek Sunday blog hop entries that I had to jump in again. Here’s a second look at Neighborly Affection: Playing the Game, due out in September from Lyrical Press.
Since last week’s snippet showed Henry and Alice’s interaction and left poor Jay silent, this one offers a peek at Alice’s playful relationship with her co-submissive.
“Had to wait, though.” Jay pouted, his lower lip drooping in exaggeration as he picked up the drink tray and she took the cheesecake and fruit. “Henry said he made it for all of us, so it wasn’t fair to have any until you were here, too.”
He sighed. “I offered to drag you out of your apartment last night so you could watch me eat cheesecake, but he said I couldn’t bother you on a work night because you needed your sleep.”
She laughed. “How selfless of you.” Warmth flooded her chest. They’d been thinking of her the night before, anticipating tonight just as she had.
“I would’ve let you eat some, too. But c’mon. It’s cheesecake. And it’s chocolate.” He danced into the bedroom ahead of her. “It’s every submissive for themselves.”
“And here I thought your mantra was share and share alike.”
He grinned at her, walking backward. “Only in Henry’s bed. And only with you.”
