Dare Me by Crystal Dawn
Will, Dare, and Nicky have been dancing around their fated mating for about year. They are chasing Chief, the number one wanted vampire in the world so it makes it difficult to pursue a relationship too. How can this ever work out with all the delays and concerns?
Dare and Nicky surrounded her offering comfort. They were like a fucking man candy sandwich. Sometimes it was hard to remember why she resisted them. The two pressed in on her from both sides and she just took their comfort knowing what they wanted from her even though she had no intentions of giving in completely. Both of her males smelled so good, it was sweaty, salty male with a little citrus thrown in to invigorate. She was a glutton for punishment, and she just breathed in deep and enjoyed their warmth and the soft way their skin felt.
It might be hard on them, but it was harder on her. At least they had each other. Jealous as hell but the thought of them having sex together turned her on. She wanted to watch, how fucked up was that? In her mind, she could imagine them kissing and she felt aroused. They pressed around her tighter. Damn it she knew better, they could smell her need and they knew she wanted them. It was like a disease she couldn’t cure or cut out. Did she sound cold? It wasn’t what she meant, she just couldn’t be pulled between two alphas that would want her to quit what she was doing while they continued as they pleased. No matter how tempting, she couldn’t fall.
Pushing them away, she moved closer to Marissa who was still watching the smoke. Chief must have hid here a while. Maybe a week or a little more, that was the last time they had routed him from his hideaway. “See anything helpful?” She was just asking for something to do. Will should know better than to distract someone hard at work. Marissa grunted then ignored her.
Nicky and Dare just stood there staring at her with their shoulders pressed together. Anytime now she expected them to start holding hands. The techs had finished so it was just her two males and her team. The team waited outside having no stomach for magic and what it brought with it. This was her life, standing around while others tried to ferret out clues that might not be there. If a clue was found, they ran it down just to miss the asshole and stand around some more. Everything was wearing on her and she was soul weary.
A throat cleared and she knew it was one of her males. She turned looking at him with a cool neutral expression and arched a brow at him. “Why don’t we just go eat and come back when Marissa is done?” Nicky stood back watching her as Dare addressed her. Everything they did these days was a cooperative plan. If she rejected the suggestion, Nicky would add his two cents. Will knew she was stubborn to a fault but this case or chase if you would, for Chief had worn her down.
“Okay, let’s grab the guys and find a place nearby.”
“Already found one.” Nicky held up his phone with the information on it. Like she said, they were in cahoots, and they were far more effective that way. God help her because she was having trouble helping herself.
