(Brother's Best Friend)
Release Date: April 15, 2019
My best friend made damn sure I knew the rules. His sister was strictly off limits.
Growing up it was always the three of us. Me, my twin brother, Kyle, and our best friend, Aiden. We were inseparable all the way through high school.
Did I picture myself with Aiden from the first moment I laid eyes on him back when we were eight? Hell. Yes. I fell in love with his soul that day. But he was always more Kyleâs friend than mine. And Kyle made damn sure we both know the rules.
I was strictly off limits. Forever.
But now Kyle is gone. Dead from a freak accident. And Aiden is still here. Looking hot as hell in his grown-up body. Looking sexy AF with those tattoos all over his muscular chest. Sad and in need of comfort. Just like me.
Every time Kyle caught me lusting after his twin sister, Kali, he reminded me of the rule. âYou were my friend first.â
If you want to get technical about it, I was Kaliâs friend first, not Kyleâs. But thatâs not how he saw it. One rule. Thatâs all we had between us. Just one. Stay away from my sister.
All these years Iâve honored that. I never broke his trust. Until now. Because heâs dead. He left us. And being with Kali is the only thing that makes the pain go away.
I want Kali. I want to marry her, and have kids with her, and keep her in my bed forever.
But I want Kyleâs blessing too. And thatâs something Iâll never get.
Kali sighs a little. Her shoulders slump and her head lowers with them. âIâm not using you,â she says.
âGood,â I say. âBecause Iâm not using you either.â
âIâve always liked you. And if youâd like to talk about that someday, we can. Butâ¦â She looks at me. Places her hands on the sides of my face. Blinks twice. âNot tonight, OK? Can we just not think too hard about it?â
It, meaning the sex. Or maybe the funeral. Iâm not sure.
I decide to say nothing in response. Iâm drunk, Iâm sad, Iâm horny, and Iâve got Kali Anderson sitting in my lap.
And weâre naked.
âCome here,â I say, placing my hands on her head. âI want to kiss you for a while.â
She smiles into the kiss that comes next. Itâs a nice kiss. A slow kiss. One where our mouths fit together perfectly, and move just the right way, and thereâs nothing awkward or distracting about it. Itâs just nice.
After a little bit of that I find myself thinking too hard again.
Maybe slow and careful is a bad thing? Maybe what we really need tonight is something hard, and angry, and quick?
She reaches down between her legs and begins playing with herself again. Rubbing her pussy with the flat tips of her fingers as she stares into my eyes.
Yeah. Slow and careful is for another night.
I reach down and take my cock in my hand. Pulling and tugging on it. Iâm already fully erect but thereâs something intimate about masturbating in front of someone. And doing it together is even hotter.
Her other hand rests on my shoulder and a chill rises up my spine.
This girl. This pretty thing Iâve known almost my whole life. She is the dream girl. She is the one Iâve always wanted. She might even be the one Iâve always loved.
