After a shocking turn of events that revealed some mind-blowing secrets, Mia becomes more determined than ever to take back her life from the darkness that’s consumed her. In her pursuit for answers, she quickly discovers that parts of her past, which have always been a mystery, might be the key to saving the ones she loves…and the man that stole her heart.
Ethan Fitzgerald knows that things are never what they seem. Taking down his father’s empire wasn’t supposed to be a challenge—that was before Mia Ryan waltzed through his door. Forever changed by a love that reignites his purpose in life, Ethan is willing to do whatever it takes to protect Mia, and his enemies know it.
In this edge of your seat finale of the Secrets and Lies series, the stakes are higher than they’ve ever been before. Can Mia and Ethan’s relationship withstand the malicious forces threatening them, or is letting go the answer that saves them and the ones they love? Everything comes at a cost—and it might just be true love.
The sound of feet running up the steps made my pulse quicken. Once Mia reached the top, the light from the Forum captured her gorgeous face. The sight stole my next breath. She gazed around a few times before her shoulders sagged. She walked to the edge of balcony, rested her elbows on it, and muttered several choice words that made me bite my lip so I wouldn’t laugh.
I approached her from behind and seductively whispered, “Did you miss me?”
Mia whipped around and jumped into my arms. I held her tightly, buried my head into her neck, and gave her light kisses until she was moaning. I flashed my dimples while setting her down for a proper kiss. My head rested against hers as I took her mouth fiercely into mine.
My tongue savored every angle of her mouth before I lightly nibbled on her bottom lip. My lips travelled across her jaw and down her throat. Her breaths became sporadic as she grabbed my ass and grinded against me.
I groaned when her fingers made their way towards my zipper. Mia wasted no time in releasing my dick. Her hand stroked me with vigor before wrapping her bare leg around my ass. She teased me even more by rubbing my dick along the slickness trickling between her thighs.
“Baby, are you sure?” I asked, panting.
Mia tilted her head back just enough to gaze into my eyes. “Ethan, we went from having sex multiple times a day to maybe once a month. Do you really need an answer to something so obvious?”
“I haven’t missed your smart-ass remarks,” I growled.
She goaded me even more by running her tongue across her lips before biting down on her bottom one. I picked her up, whisked us into the shadows, and gently pressed her against the brick wall. As my fingers slowly travelled up her thigh, she leaned into me and sucked along my neck before resuming her handiwork around my dick.
My eyes widened when I reached her throbbing pussy. “Mother of God! Have you gone commando all day?”
Mia gave me a wicked grin and softly moaned, “I know how much it turns you on.”
Her grasp around me became even more robust. My fingers slid around her wet pussy before I plunged three deep inside of her. Her head fell to my shoulder and she bit down to stop herself from screaming. I swirled around until she was panting. Her lips sucked along my throat as I continued to tease her.
“I don’t like my girl walking around with next to nothing on all day without me by her side. I’m tempted to show you how much that pisses me off,” I husked, pushing my fingers even further inside her.
Mia nipped at my ear and panted, “I’m not scared of your threats. If you want to make this one of your lessons, feel free. I don’t care what you do to me as long as you fuck me.”
