Chapter 1

“Alright, Myra, I will see you all Monday morning,” Angie announced as she dropped off some files and started putting on her coat. “Make sure these doctors,” she started, pointing to the list attached to the top file, “Redo these write ups. I can read them, but we have to be sure the board can read them if anything should happen.”

Nodding, Myra took the files. “Give it to them as soon as they finish with their rounds. So do you and Jesse have a hot date?”

Angie blushed and nodded. “Is it that obvious?”

“Yes, yes it is,” Dixie answered, coming up to the two women she considered to be her best friends. Ever since she returned to the land of the living Angie had been by her side. Even when they moved to another state, they still remained close. “You’ve been smiling like a Cheshire cat since you walked in this morning. What’s the occasion?”

“No occasion. Jesse just noticed something was wrong and suggested we spend the weekend together, no work, and no distractions.”

“What about Ellie?”

“As a matter of fact, she’s going to be with Krystal until Sunday and from there Frankie’s going to have her until dinner. So, she has a pretty big weekend ahead of her,” she explained, taking a look at her watch. “Okay, let me get out of here. I will see you ladies next week.”

“Have fun!” Dixie and Myra sang as she rushed out of the hospital.

Angie made it out just as Jesse pulled up and rolled the window. “Hello.”

“Hey there. My name is Jesse, may I give you a ride somewhere… Preferably to my bedroom?”

Laughing out loud, Angie shook her head and waited as he got out and opened the door for her. “Does that line ever work?”

“Don’t know, trying it out for the first time,” he joked, closing her door and going to get back in. “Alright, Mrs. Hubbard, you have a full weekend of fun and romance ahead of you. Are you ready?”

“I’ve never been more ready for anything in my life,” she replied, leaning over and giving him a kiss. “Good to see you again, Mr. Hubbard and in a good mood.”

“Oh baby, I’m in a great mood! But we’ll talk about that later. Let’s go get peanut and get her ready for Krystal’s.”

After picking up Ellie and getting her a bag ready and dropping her off at Krystal’s, Angie pulled up to her home and went in. “Baby, I’m back!” She called out, stomping the fresh snow off her boots and shaking off the cold. “Baby, where ar–” She started and stopped when she felt something silky under her now bare toes. “What the?” There were rose petals leading from the door to upstairs. “Jesse,” she sighed lovingly as she put her keys down and followed the path and saw Jesse standing in the doorway of their bedroom in nothing but a pair of jeans that hung dangerously low off his hips. “Jesse.”

“Welcome home… And welcome to your palace of romance and relaxation,” he greeted, reaching for her to come closer. “Come here.”

“Wow… Was I really gone that long?”

“No, I’m just fast. Anyway, you go ahead and take your bath, while I go get started on dinner.”

Pouting. “You’re not going to join me?”

“I want you to fully relax. We’ll have our chance later on,” he promised, pulling her to the bathroom and slowly undressing her. Once she was naked, Jesse led her to the tub. “Now, you relax, enjoy your bath and the peace and quiet. I’ll be back up to check on you. And here,” he said, handing her a glass of champagne. “Enjoy this.”

“Thank you.”


About an hour after returning home and going upstairs to take a bubble bath, Angie emerged from the bathroom and saw a royal blue, lace and satin gown on the bed. “Whoo!” She sang as she ran her hand over the sexy feeling fabric. “For me.”

“The one and only,” Jesse replied, as he leaned against the doorjamb with his arms crossed.

Jumping, Angie turned and blushed. “How long you been there?”

“Long enough to know I want you just the way you are,” he replied, walking towards her like a lion on the prowl.

Angie took in the raw passion in his eyes and felt her insides turn into jelly.

When Jesse came to stand in front of her, he slowly pulled the strings of her robe loose and slid the silky item down her shoulders. “Damn,” he mumbled, placing a kiss on her freshly cleaned and vanilla coated bare shoulder. What he had in mind at that present moment was not a part of the plan he had for this evening. But he couldn’t resist. He couldn’t resist the sweet purr of her love that only he could hear. He couldn’t resist the touch of her soft finger tips. “Angie, why do you have to look so good,” he growled, sliding his hands to her waist and turning her back towards him. “Can I have you in my favorite way?” He asked, now kissing her neck and massaging her chest.

Head falling back, Angie slid her hands along his own and his arms. “Yes,” she whimpered. “Oh dear god, yes.”

After giving her some more of his sweet and passionate kisses, Jesse helped Angie into the bed and once she was comfortably settled on her stomach he placed a blindfold over her eyes. “Tonight… Tonight, all big daddy wanted to do was help you relax,” he said, gently laying her head down on the pillow. “But I don’t know if I’ll be able to control myself.”

While Jesse was behind her doing only God knows what, Angie’s nerves went from 5 to 500. Jesse always had a deep voice, but when it dipped lower, when it felt like slow dripping honey, she couldn’t handle it! When his voice sounded like that she knew tonight Jesse was all about pleasure. He was all about commitment.

Seconds later, Jesse straddled her lower half and poured a warm liquid onto her back and soon after began to knead all of her tension away, starting with her shoulders and on down. “Oh yes,” she moaned, her body becoming weaker and weaker the more he rubbed away her stress. Once he finished her massage, he moved from her backside and settled himself on her legs. She felt him slowly pry her legs apart.

“Can I have you?” He asked, rubbing oil into her thighs and legs. Leaning forward, Jesse kissed her back, sides and then later her thighs. Not giving Angie a chance to react, Jesse’s head dipped between her thighs and he answered the call of that sweet purr. If he hadn’t been holding her down he was sure she would have literally climbed up the wall.

“Jesse,” she moaned, grabbing a fistful of the sheets. “Jesse, Jesse, Jesse,” she chanted, moving more and more against his sweet torture, until he turned her over and wrapped her legs around his neck. Feeling herself getting ready to lose control, lose all of her senses, Angie reached down to push him back, but he grabbed her and pinned her hands down. “Jesse, I might wa—“

For a split second, Jesse stopped. “It’s just us,” he reminded and returned to her cove of passion. And this was one of the reasons he wanted the house empty so he could have Angie in any way he wanted. It had been so long since they’d made love and they were both bound to get out of control. And it’s just what I want, he thought, feeling her shiver.

The last bit of control Angie had left, was released when Jesse took her to the peak of her need. Arching up high, locking her legs around his neck, Angie let out a long, satisfying moan, “Jesse,” she gritted, feeling another wave hit her and rock her to her core.

Not giving her a minute to come down, Jesse settled over her and allowed her to take hold of him in the tightest grip he could ever dream of. Growling, fore no words could describe what he was feeling, Jesse buried his head in her neck, grabbing her legs and moved with her in the most passionate way known to man.

Angie anchored her arms under his, dug her nails into his back and held on for dear life. She could count on one hand how many times they been intimate. Between work and their family, intimacy had been the last thing on their mind and unfortunately had fallen by the wayside.

Against Jesse wants, he started feeling his control wavier. “Mhmmm, no,” he groaned, biting down on her shoulder.

“Let it go,” Angie whimpered, automatically catching onto what was happening. “It’s okay.”

“No,” Jesse groaned once more before stopping and coming up to look into her eyes. “I want you to—“

“Shut-up,” Angie said, arching up and flipping them over. Grabbing his hands and leaning over, Angie drew them over his head and laced their fingers all while moving her hips sensually against him. “Let it go,” she whispered, kissing the lobe of his ear.

Now Jesse had never been the one to throw in the towel so quickly and a huge part of him felt bad he couldn’t keep in control of that. But it had been a very long time since he and Angie had come together. It wasn’t for the lack of trying that was for damn sure. It just seemed as if everything was piling up on them, if it wasn’t for them taking care of Ellie and the older kids, it was taking care of their jobs, and those took up most of the day, leaving them with only a few hours to rest.

Just as Jesse had felt a little bit of control, Angie swirled her hips in a way that made his toes curl. “Arrgh!” He growled, gripping her hands and thrusting forward. “Trouble,” he panted finding the strength to push his release aside for the moment and flip her over. “You’re in trouble,” he whispered.
