  • AJ laughed. “I just meant she’s going to be mixed, that’s all. A bit of Mexican and a bit of Sicilian.”

    I cocked my brows at him. “Mixed sounds way better than mutt.”

    “She’ll be multilingual for sure.”

    “That’s true.”

    AJ slid back on the bed and crossed his legs Indian style before grasping my hips. He pulled me over to where I rose up to straddle his lap. He pushed us back further on the bed. Staring intently at my mouth, he brought his hand up to brush his thumb over my lips. “Come se dice en Italiano?”


    “Mmm, they’re labios in Spanish.”

    My index finger came to circle his mouth. “And this?”

    “Boca,” he replied before his tongue darted out to lick my finger.

    “It’s the same in Italian, except we Sicilians say vucca, too.”

    His brows quirked up. “We’re not so different, are we?”

    “No, we’re not.”

    AJ’s hands slid slowly down my neck, pausing for his fingers to tease along my clavicle before they dipped down and cupped my breasts. “And these?” he questioned with a squeeze.


    A smile slunk on his lips. “Another one we have in common. But their senos in Spanish. Or pechos.” He tugged on the straps of my bra and pulled down the cups to expose my breasts. “And these?” His fingers tweaked my hardening nipples.

    I sucked in a breath before replying, “Capezzolos.”

    “En Español son pezónes.”

    “I see.” He leaned over to suck one of my nipples into his mouth. His tongue flicked at the pebbled bud, and my hands went to rake through his hair. “Mmm, la bocca mi fa bagnato.”

    “En Ingles por favor,” he replied, before he blew air across my puckering nipple.

    “Your mouth makes me wet.” `

    “I’m glad to hear that. Cause you’re making me hard as a fucking rock.

    “So what is this called then?” I asked, as I cupped the bulge in his boxers.

    “Maestro de tu universo,” he murmured against my breast.

    Gripping his hair with one hand, I jerked his head up to meet my gaze. “I don’t think so, egomaniac.”

    AJ grinned. “Fine. It’s a pene or verga.”

    “Same in Italiano…it can also be cazzo in Sicilian.”

    “I know it wants to be in this,” he said, cupping me between my thighs over my panties.

    I giggled. “That would be a vagina…or for you since you’re crude, it would be pussy, and that’s figa.”

    “Cueva en español.” As his fingers slipped inside to rub over the wetness he’d caused, he murmured, “Tu coño me vuelve loco.”

    “I have a crazy pussy?” I teased breathlessly.

    Amusement danced in his eyes. “No smartass, your pussy drives me crazy.”

    I laughed. “Right back at ya,” I said, before working him harder over his boxers.

    AJ’s mouth met mine in a frenzied kiss. Our tongues swirled against each other as our fingers worked to free one another of each other’s underwear. After I tugged AJ’s boxers over his hips, he pushed me up on my knees to pull my panties down my thighs. Easing me onto my back, he then slid them down my legs and tossed them over his shoulder. He kicked out of his boxers before his body hovered over mine.

    Even though this was about making love, I’d already had enough foreplay. “I want you inside me, AJ,” I pleaded.

    Turning me onto my side, AJ spooned up beside me. Gripping under my knee, he lifted my leg up and then guided himself inside me. With one thrust, he filled me, and I cried out. His warm lips nuzzled my neck while his hand slid around my ribcage to cup my breast. “Oh baby, you and that sound. Do it again.”

    He pulled out of me all the way before easing slowly and deliciously back inside again. This time, I whimpered. The next time he pulled out, he slammed back into me, and I did cry out. “Fuck,” AJ murmured.

    His movements inside me became almost like a piece of music he might play. They varied between fast and hard and then soft and slow. I felt so in tune with him and so reconnected. He must have felt the same way because we came together. Even though it was early in the evening, he snuggled closer to me. His hand slipped around my waist to rub my belly. Even after he stopped, he kept his hand pressed against my stomach. It wasn’t long before he was snoring softly against my neck. As I began to drift off, I tried once and for all to put the ghosts of my past to rest, hoping, more than knowing, that everything was finally right for me when it came to AJ.


    Peering out the window of AJ’s uncle’s car, I took in the surroundings of Guadalajara. While AJ sat up front rattling along in Spanish to his Tio Diego, Abby was smooshed between me and Jake in the backseat. Rather than a hotel, we were staying with AJ’s abuela who had a house in the heart of the city. From what I gathered, she had a soft spot for AJ like Mama Sofia had had for me. While I was thrilled to be staying with her and meeting all of AJ’s family, I was a little intimidated by the fact that Abuela didn’t speak English.

    Turning to Abby, I asked, “So what do I do to not look like the out-of-place gringa?”

    She giggled. “Just kiss both their cheeks and say ‘mucho gusto’.”

    I nodded. “Okay, I think I can do that.”

    “And I promise to let you know if anyone is talking smack about you. Okay?”
