It started out like any other morning on the train.
Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle.
He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world.
Who did the stuck-up suit think he was…God?
Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it.
When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out.
I might have picked it up.
I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers.
I might have held onto the mystery man’s phone for days—until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.
When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me.
So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk’s office.
I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though.
I didn’t expect him to text back.
I didn’t expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.
I didn’t expect to fall for him—all before we even met.
The two of us couldn’t have been any more different.
Yet, you know what they say about opposites.
When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attract—we consumed each other.
Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for where I’d wind up when the ride was over.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.
Outside of the restaurant, Graham’s black car was already curbside. He must have had it waiting and called the driver when I went to the restroom.
“If you’re not going to come home with me, I insist on at least giving you a ride home to your place.”
“The subway is right around the corner. I’m good.”
He shot me an annoyed glance. “Give a little, Soraya. It’s a ride home, not a ride on my cock. And I think you know by now that I’m not a serial killer.”
“You’re so crass.”
He put his hand on the small of my back and steered me to the waiting open car door. I didn’t put up a fight. Graham was right, I was being stubborn while he had pretty much agreed to anything I demanded. Something told me it was a rare occasion when the man was this flexible.
When we arrived at my apartment, Graham walked me to the door.
“When will I see you again?”
“Well, tomorrow is Saturday, so I suppose maybe Monday on the train.”
“Have dinner with me again tomorrow?”
“I have plans.”
His jaw flexed. “With whom?”
We embarked into a lengthy stare off. His gaze was hard. When neither of us gave for a few minutes, he grumbled Christ under his breath, and before I realized what was happening, my back was against the door, and his mouth was on mine.
He kissed me as if he wanted to eat me alive. Before releasing my mouth, he took my lower lip between his teeth and tugged. Hard. With his lips vibrating up against mine, he spoke. “Don’t push me to my limit, Soraya.”
“Why? What will happen?”
“I’ll push back. And I’m trying not to do that with you.”
He was being honest, and I realized I should appreciate that. “To my sister’s house. It’s my niece’s birthday party. That’s where I’m going tomorrow night.
He nodded. “Thank you.”
It took every bit of my willpower to go inside and shut the door behind me. I leaned my back against the door, unable to remember the last time I was so hot and bothered. Maybe not ever. His mouth was sinful; the thought of what he could do with that wicked tongue other places on my body kept me in a state of arousal that bordered on frenzied. But it was more than that. The way he was so dominating and controlling, yet exercised restraint to respect my wishes, was the sexiest thing I’d ever seen. The man stimulated something that had been sleeping inside of me. I needed a glass of wine and an orgasm. Not necessarily in that order. If I was going be firm on my stance that we get to know each other and not have sex, then taking things into my own hands was absolutely essential.
In my bedroom, I stripped out of my clothes. I didn’t sleep naked every night, but tonight was definitely a bare evening. As I slipped into bed, my cell rang.
“Is phone sex on the table?” Graham’s voice was a needy rasp. Whatever cooling off my body had done since I left him on the other side of the door was instantly reheated. His voice could definitely speed things up for me. But…
“Sex is off the table. That should probably include all types of sex. Intercourse, oral, phone.”
He groaned. “Oral. God, I want to taste you. And feel that metal tongue ring on my cock. You have no idea how difficult it was to control myself tonight every time I caught a glimpse of that metal when you spoke. It’s like you’re taunting me with every word. What are you wearing, Soraya?”
That voice. I needed to record him saying What are you wearing, Soraya? So I could play it over and over again in a loop when I needed to satisfy my own needs. “I’m actually not wearing anything. I just got undressed and slipped into bed.”
“You sleep naked?”
He actually growled. “Touch yourself.”
“I plan to. But I think I’m going to need both hands tonight. So I’m going to hang up first.”
“How long do you plan on driving me crazy, Soraya?”
“Good night, Graham.” I hung up without waiting for him to respond. Even though my body physically ached for the man, I wasn’t ready to open that door with him just yet. Although as I glided my hand down my body alone in my bed, the only thing I could think of was God, I wish it was his hand.
"It takes time to see people for who they really are. You need to be yourself and have patience, and eventually, she will see the real you."Stuck Up Suit is one book that left me with one hell of a book hangover. Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward did a fantastic job with this book. They hooked me right from the the first few paragraphs. It was then I knew I was in for it and couldn't put the book down till the end. I definitely laughed, I shed a few tears, and oh I wanted to punch some lights out. This book is definitely one you won't want to miss out on.
"Soraya lit some kind of fire in me that I couldn't extinguish."
I fell in love with Soraya Venedetta instantly. I mean with that name, you almost kind of have to. She's smart, she's beautiful, charming, sassy and what I love most about her is that she tells it like it is. She hasn't had a lot of experience with men, but she has had a troubling experience with her father growing up causing her to build a wall around herself when it comes to men in general.
"He was like a lion-the type of species best admired from afar, where by the actual contact could lead to irreparable harm."
Graham Morgan is dubbed at Mr. Big Prick because once you come across him he truly is an asshole in a suit. He runs his own successful business, lives for his work, but truly lacks the people skills. He doesn't know any of his employees names and barks at everyone he comes across. Heck, he can't even hold a secretary down.
"I'm a jerk because I don't want to deal with the bullshit that inevitably comes when I let my guard down."
The one day he takes the train Soraya spots him on the phone(yes he's barking at someone on the other end) she's intimidated at first by him but she can't help admire how hot he looks in the suit. I mean if you saw Graham, you'd drool over him yourself. Here she thinks she's out of his league. It's when he drops his phone on his way out and she decides to picks it up to try and return it to him. That's out of character for her. When she she tries to return it to him and he refuses to see him I right about died. Soraya is one to not hold anything back and she is not afraid to put you in your place. Which she does to Graham, on many occasions. This at first frustrates him but then realizes that no one is this honest with him, well except for his grandmother.
"There was chemistry that came naturally and was nearly impossible to clamp down."
"I wanted to own her, but the truth was...she already owned me."
Graham is the way he is because of his past and has never let anyone close, until Soraya. She's slowly chipping away the layers of the stuck up suit. As he is doing to her. Underneath that hard shell is a softhearted guy and Soraya is loving what she is seeing. Hell his employees are loving the guy he is becoming when she is around. Yes they just met. The relationship started by a measly lost phone and a series of messages but you can clearly see that there is a deep connection between the two of them. They are complete opposites but as the saying goes opposites do attract. You can feel the intensity that Graham feels for her and the hesitation Soraya has. He needs to work for it. And he does. For once he needs to woo someone. The feelings he had for her was so strong it gave me the chills. I could not have predicted the turn of events that have taken place in this book. Though it made it an eye opening experience for everyone and it seemed to make them realize what they truly want in life. I'm glad everything worked out the way it did or else this review would have ended up differently. there were some parts in there where I wanted to claw some eyes out and just slap someone's head off. But that's besides the point. It's definitely worth the read. In fact I'm itching to read it again. This is dubbed as one of my top reads so far this year. Fantastic job well done!
"You have to trust in fate. It's all written. Doesn't matter if it's today or in two years, if it's meant to be, it will happen one way or the other."
