Gabriel Sandoval is crazy in love. His life with his wife Lily is everything a man could ask for. She’s beautiful, funny, smart and sexy. She even swallows. There’s just this one little thing…
Lily Sandoval is wild about her man. He’s strong, supportive and gorgeous. There’s no one in the world she would rather spend time with, and their sex life is off the charts. But she knows that deep down, Gabe has a secret wish. And this Christmas, Lily will let go of all her inhibitions to make that wish come true.
Gabriel Sandoval hasn't been completely honest with his wife when it comes to his overall satisfaction of their sexual activities. I mean it's clear that he is sated, but the true satisfaction he seeks can only be reached if he communicates his needs to his wife. But what will she think of him if he laid it out there? There is one request he's managed to share with Lily, but so far she's not been receptive to it and he just can't understand why.
Lily Sandoval isn't completely satisfied with her sex life. She's knows that Gabe is frustrated that she's holding back and, what's more is that she's know he's holding back as well. It's time for her to take a major step and show Gabe how much she loves him – all of him. She's hoping that her gift to him will be the ultimate gift that keeps on giving.
In this Holiday quickie, we explore sexual tension and release in it's finest forms. Ms. Cole touches on a topic that's mostly of the female insecurity variety and sheds light on it with a somewhat humorous touch. Some inhibitions can only be overcome with a little friendly push and perhaps a margarita or two. Both Gabe and Lily's vulnerability to each other is very touching and they show how much they love each other by going that extra step all the while fearing rejection. Many gifts are given out over the Holiday season, but none could perhaps be more nerve-wracking to give than that of one's total submission to a loved one even if it is only in the bedroom.
I very much enjoyed this story as it was both sensually sweet in nature and erotically sexy.
