When Faye wakes up after a lust-filled night and finds herself tied to a man she thought belonged to someone else, she realizes there’s a lot more to her friends than she could have ever imagined.
Being Mated to an Immortal isn’t all it’s cracked up to be however. Of course, the sex is hot and just plain amazing, but she needs more from Jake. She just hopes he’ll come to realize this before it’s too late…
She’d never been in this room, and yet she’d heard about it from Sofia. It was a play room; there was just no other way to describe it. There was a daybed, large enough to be comfortable for two people lying on it. A sturdy chair. A widescreen TV and a collection of DVDs. Shelves lined with boxes of… She walked closer and felt herself start to blush. Toys. Cock rings, vibes, plugs. Anything and everything under the sun. “Did you rob a sex shop?”
Jake chuckled behind her, his arms wrapping around her waist and stopping right beneath her breasts. “I like toys. I know you do too.”
She stilled. “Who told you that?”
“Chris,” he whispered in her ear. “He said you ordered them online. So, what’s your favorite, baby?”
She licked her lips, wondering how her roommate even knew about those. And why the hell had he told Jake about her purchases? “Uh, I don’t know.”
“Oh no, Faye, that won’t do.” Warm palms drifted up her shirt, opening each button slowly until it parted. A rumble echoed in his chest as her breasts were revealed. “Tell me, baby. What’s your favorite toy?” he repeated as he took the shirt off of her. His chest once more pressed against her back, he traced her lace bra with soft fingers. “So fucking nice. I know what my fave toy for you is gonna be.”
She tilted her head back. “What’s that?”
With a smirk, he leaned forward and grabbed a box on the upper shelf. Moving so he stood in front of her, he said, “Take off your bra.”
Faye jerked. “Now?”
“Yes.” He put the box in his back pocket, as he waited for her to do his bidding.
She gulped. “Right.” Before she could lose courage, she opened the back clasp and drew the straps down her shoulders, her breasts coming to rest on her chest. She winced at the sight but didn’t have time to protest. Jake had already grabbed the bra and sent it flying to the opposite side of the room.
He moved to his knees in front of her, his hands weighing her breasts with apparent relish. “Oh, baby, they’re amazing. So soft and round and… Oh yeah.” He levelled his face with them and took one nipple into his mouth, biting on it until the surrounding skin crinkled. Then he did it all over again to the other one.
She clasped the back of his head and held on, feeling a sudden urge to rub her thighs together. “Jake!”
“I’m going to fuck your amazing tits, baby. I’m going to cover them with my cum,” he said, his voice husky. “And then, I’ll get you naked and I’ll eat your pussy until you scream out my name.”
He laughed. “Are you getting wet, Faye?”
Her eyes as wide as saucers, she nodded.
“Perfect,” he praised her, standing up and pulling the box out of his pocket. He opened it and showed her its content.
Marked by Emma Hillman was a hot, sensual story about sex, trust, and immortality.
Marked was a mixed bag of emotions for me. There were times I was reading that I just loved the places Ms. Hillman was taking me with the story. It’s one of those stories where you sort of fe...
Marked is a very interesting take on a modern contemporary erotic story that I expected it to be. And then I thought for a moment, that it is a vampire story. I’m not sure I have figured out yet what it is, but maybe erotic with paranormal overtones? Contemporary M/s with lots of sex? Paranormal with vampire-like immortals?
Anyhow, it’s quite entertaining, and keeps you guessing as to what’s going to happen next between Jake and Fay, who meet when they end up living next door to each other. Through a series of coincidences and machinations, they end up together, and she is ‘marked’ by love bites on her neck, by the king and queen of the Immortals. In Immortal parlance, this means they are mated and married. Or are they? They journey to live in a compound of other immortals, but can Jake hold his empire together when outside influences are trying hard to modernize the group?
I had to wonder if Fay would ever get to be immortal so she could stay with Jake forever, but we don’t find that out. We also don’t find out if this is his first love through the ages, or just his present love, or how old he is, or even if he might have already had a family. We suspect not, but it seems odd that he hasn’t mated with someone over the eons. Does he stay young and have to watch her get old and die? Perhaps not, as we do get to meet his parents who appear to be about equal age.
There is a small element of master/slave erotic play, but nothing much that is overt or that would bother anyone. I think I’d like to find out more about the Immortals, and would love to see a sequel.
