From the bestselling erotica writer Lisa Andrew, comes this sexy psychological thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end.
The intensity in her eyes grow and she takes her time, quietly commanding him, “Lift my foot off the floor, but make sure my beautiful heel stays on my foot.”
With precision and his own grin growing, he carefully lifts her foot off the floor, holding it in front of him, as if it was about to stab him in the chest. He looks the shoe over with greed and lust. “It’s beautiful isn’t it, Ruin? These shoes.” She admires them with the handsome young man in front of her, with a grin.
“Yes, Miss, they are. Beautiful, like you.”
She ignores his compliment and continues with self-assurance, “Two-thousand for the pair, worth every penny. You know, they say a shoe says a lot about a person. Take my Louboutin’s here for example; cream coloured stilettos with a very thin steel heel. Strong backbone, five inches in height that create confidence, and the cream colour appearing to make them docile. And the signature mark of a dark red paint hidden on the bottom. What would you say, Ruin? Accurate description?”
He licks his lips, clearly drinking her in before answering promptly, “Yes, I’d say that’s very accurate, Miss.”
She turns the heel in his hand, and delays what he’s been more or less, promised. “Yours; newer, black, thick, strong. Reliable. The most important part is made of steel, and can’t be punctured.” Her eyes travel from her heel to his eyes. She pauses to look deep into them and holds back a smile. He reminds her of a younger version of Michael in some ways, and in others, more delicate than she imagines Michael could ever be. She softens her voice, seductively, “Can you be punctured, Ruin?” Before he can answer, her eyes return to her high-class stiletto and she vocally sighs at them, “I love my shoes, they deserve more love.” She remains still, staring at her shoe, while she can see he’s patiently waiting for his prize. “Suck.”
