My employee’s daughter. The tomboy. The kid who once did odd jobs around the brewery. That’s all she was… until three years passed and she walked into my office for an interview.
Frankee Dawson is no longer that girl I once called Kiddo. She’s grown into a beautiful, sexy, desirable woman. Very desirable. And that’s a problem. She’s my employee’s daughter. Lovibond family. And too young for me. Too innocent.
I want to feel her respond to my kiss.
I want her body to tremble as she anticipates my touch.
I want to learn all the places that bring her pleasure.
But mostly I want her to know that she’s never truly been loved by a man until me.
Frankee is my intern and under me for the summer. Literally. It’s a difficult secret to maintain when you can’t keep your hands off each other.
This was supposed to be a hot summer fling. Sex and fun without commitment—that’s what we called it. But we were wrong. This is more. I’ve never felt this way about a woman. Never cared more about someone else’s happiness more than my own.
I love her and I’m happy. So damn happy… until a terrible mistake from my past springs forward and threatens to rip us apart.
There are a million reasons for her to leave me. And trust me, she should. But all I really need is one good reason for her to stay.
In the final book of the series, Porter, readers of the Lovibond men’s stories witness just how much a man can change his ways when he finds the ‘One’. And while it’s difficult enough to start a new relationship – one that is much different than any before it – Porter Beckman further complicates things, both professionally and personally, by choosing someone who should be off-limits due to her father’s position in the Lovibond company, the fact that Porter’s her boss, and the 9 year age difference that illustrates just how innocent she is.
But regardless of the forbidden aspect of Porter and Frankee’s relationship, Georgia Cates makes it clear through their character development and interactions just how well they complement each other at work and in the bedroom, so while what’s between them remains a secret and has an expiration date, as the story progresses, it’s obvious that both Porter and Frankee wouldn’t mind what’s between them turning into something more.
Despite Frankee’s inexperience with men, her and Porter’s sexual relationship, once it gets to that point, is a big part of their connection, and with Porter as her dirty talking, ‘magic mouth’ instructor, Frankee definitely lives up to her ‘porno princess’ nickname. Even though they do spend a lot of time having sex, they grow as a couple because they work well together on the advertising and marketing for Lovibond, and when Frankee helps Porter and his family work through a difficult situation with positivity and insightfulness.
In Porter, Georgia Cates illustrates how a young girl’s crush turns into lust-filled interactions and then progresses into something that neither wants to give up, and while the knowledge of the forbidden/taboo aspect of Porter and Frankee’s relationship is always there, it’s easy to forgot just how much both of them are risking by sneaking around and stretching the truth because the bond that’s formed between them happens almost instantaneously and the desire and need they feel is unrelenting until they finally give into it.
There’s a lot that Porter and Frankee have to contend with in the story, and, at times, I felt like there was too much happening around and to them, particularly due to a level of crazy that is absolutely beyond comprehension. That part of the story line, in my opinion, distracted readers and created more of a soap opera-like feel to a story that had more than enough drama already.
Despite my issues with part of the plot, I liked Porter and Frankee’s story, and the way Cates brings all three Lovibond men and their women together at the end perfectly illustrates the camaraderie amongst them and indicates that the Lovibond family will continue to expand, not only in business but in their personal lives as well.
3.5 Poison Apples
Frankee and I stayed up until three in the morning. I couldn’t keep my hands off of her. Not when she was wearing that sexy-as-fuck lingerie.
I’ve never seen anyone wear anything like that. Sure, I’ve watched porn and seen it on those women, but never on a real-life woman. And never one in my bed.
Frankee is like my very own porno princess.
I gave her six orgasms last night—one an hour. I’ve never done that before. Not that I don’t have the ability. I’ve just never been inclined to.
She doesn’t stir. Not even a little. I shake her shoulder this time. “Frankee. Wake up, baby. I have to go.”
She rolls to her back and slowly opens her eyes. “Someone fucked me into next week. You’ll have to check back with me when it comes around to see if I can wake up.”
“You don’t have to get up, but I do have to go.”
“No. Don’t go. Staaaay.” She has no idea how badly I want to.
At some point during the night, Frankee washed off her makeup, and I’m seeing her for the first time without cosmetics. It’s confirmed. She’s a natural beauty and doesn’t need that garbage on her face.
“I wish I could stay in this bed with you all day, but I promised Stout I’d help him move his stuff to his new house today. I was supposed to be there already, but I couldn’t bear to leave when you looked so beautiful in my bed.”
I already know he’s going to give me shit for being late.
“Wait a minute… before you go.”
Frankee dashes to the bathroom, still wearing her porno princess attire from last night. That is one convenient getup. I hope she has more of those.
She returns from the bathroom with her hair twisted into a topknot. I don’t know what it is that makes that so damn sexy.
She wraps her arms around my shoulders and lowers herself to straddle me on the bed. “Kiss me before you go.”
Her mouth is minty. And hungry, based on the way she devours my mouth and neck. “Is this your plan for tempting me to stay?”
Her hands are working to undo the button and zipper on my jeans. “No. This is.”
When she’s not writing, she’s thinking about writing. When she’s being domestic, she’s listening to her music and visualizing scenes for her current work in progress. Every story coming from her always has a song to inspire it.
