Places to find Robin:

This short is a short scene sequel to a free read, The Fourth Date’s the Charm. You can find the original story on my website or on Wattpad. You don't need to have read the story before this one. Enjoy!


She was running late.

Piper dove under the shower, letting the hot water wash away some of her anxiety created by a day at the hospital as an art therapist. Lots of patients for her to see, none of them happy to be there on a holiday but she thought she brought them a little happiness with her art supplies.

But tonight she would get to put it all behind her and spend the evening with Jake. Their first New Year’s Eve together. The start of their first full year as a coupleso many things she hoped for and so many things she didn't dare dream about.

Christmas had beentrickyawkward. They were so different and it had never been more clear than when she’d sat in his parent’s dining room, eating off expensive china and hoping she didn’t use the wrong fork. But later, when they’d come back here to Jake’s place and loved each other on the floor beside the Christmas tree, all had been perfect.

They were always perfect when it was just the two of them.

“Can I help you with that?”

Piper jumped and almost dropped her shampoo bottle at the sound of the deep, gravely voice just beyond the clear glass enclosure of the shower. Goosebumps popped up all over her skin, her temperature spiking up to match the heat of the water. She peeked over her shoulder, the steam just sparse enough for her to see Jake on the other side. Naked. Aroused.

Looking at her in that way that said they were going to be late to the party.

Jake moved through the shower opening, giving her a full frontal view of every delicious inch of him. Dressed as the competent doctor, the patients and staff at the hospital had no idea what lay underneath the scrubs and white lab coat. Long muscles, sculpted abs and a generous amount of dark blond hair across his pecs, arrowing down his abdomen into a thick nest of darker curls around his cock. She’d spent hours touching and exploring the beauty of his body, thrilled with the knowledge that it was all hers.

Jake walked under the spray, tipping his head back under the identical showerhead just opposite her own, his neck quickly covered in rivulets of water that continued down his shoulders and chest. Droplets caught on the stubble on his jaw, hung on his eyelashes and teased their way over his skin just like she wanted to do. When he lowered his head, his blue eyes were dark with sensual mischief.

“Do you need help with that?” He nodded towards the forgotten shampoo bottle in her hands.

“We’ll be late to the party.”

“I don't care,” he stated, taking the two short steps necessary to press against her body. Piper leaned into his touch, craving it like nothing else. She was addicted and the hours away from him strung her out like a junkie. It couldn’t be a good thing but everything about them felt right. Especially when Jake turned her around, took the bottle out of her hand and massaged the shampoo into her hair.

His hands, the hands of a trauma surgeon, had magic in every touch. His long fingers caressed the flesh of her scalp, trailed over the tender exposed flesh of her neck, and stroked a path of pleasure over her shoulders and down to her aching breasts. Piper arched into his touch, shamelessly begging for him to continue what he was doing: teasing her nipples, pinching them lightly, tugging on the small silver rings.

It was heaven but she couldn't resist the tease.

“We’re going to be late.”

Jake turned her around, pushing her up against the tiled wall as his right hand traveled down her body to find her core. His fingers stroked her clit, teased her sex, thrusting inside to fill her, stretch her, to touch that spot inside that made her curl her toes and cry out in pleasure.

“Do you really care about the party?” He growled against her ear, rubbing his cock against her belly, enticing her.

Jake stared down at her, the steam from the shower rising around them, encasing them in a cocoon of lust and heat in the shower. He pumped in and out of her, his thumb caressing her clit, bringing her close to the edge. She bit her lip hard, staving off coming so soon. Piper wanted to stay here, suspended in the space between aching need and bone melting pleasure.

“Jake, please.”

“Is that ‘Jake please take me to the party or ‘Jake please make me come’?”

“Make me come.”

He smiled and dipped his head down, taking a nipple in his mouth and suckling in a rhythm that matched the pulse against her clit. It was just what she needed. She sagged, her knees turning into mush as the orgasm hit her, causing tremors to quake her body. She cried out, the sound ricocheting off the walls in an echo of pleasure.


“I need to get you to a bed,” Jake lifted her up, wrapping her legs around his waist.

Piper nodded, leaning down to take his mouth as he turned off the water, exited the bathroom and tried to navigate a sea of furniture in the space. He jammed his knee into a chair and cracked his shin on a side table, but he didn’t give a shit. The only thing he cared about was getting her under him or over him as soon as possible.

The bedroom, shadowed and lit only by a bedside lamp was an intimate cave, the sheets still rumpled from their tumble this morning. He lowered her to floor, enjoying every inch of the slide against his body on the way down.

“It’s been too long,” he said, cupping the weight of her beautiful breasts, flicking the hard nipples with his fingers before leaning down to lick off the water. She arched into his mouth, offering up her tits to him, her own fingers digging into his hair to keep him sucking and pulling and dragging out little pants and gasps with every one. He released her flesh, trailing his lips over the upper swell and higher on her neck. “Let me. It’s been too long.”

“It’s only been nine hours.”

“Like I said, too long.” He palmed her ass with both hands, groaning with the eye-crossing pleasure that shot through his dick when she rocked against him. “I can’t wait to be inside you.”

“Then do it.”

Like that first night in the botanical gardens, he didn’t need a second invitation, especially when Piper pushed him down onto the bed with a palm to the chest. She climbed on top of him and he barely had enough time to grasp her hips before she lowered herself and he was covered in a white-hot pleasure that would never, ever get fucking old.

“Wait, baby…love.” He kissed her, unable to resist the sweet pucker of her lips. “Are you sure?”

She stared him down from her perch over him. They’d discussed their test results, agreed to do away with the condoms but this was the first time. Two long days of his being at the hospitalplenty of time for her to change her mind. He wanted her to be sure.

“Yes. Don’t you want to feel me? So hot and wet for you?” Her eyes were lit up with the combination of pure sex and mischief he loved, her teasing voice punctuated by the slow grind of her sex on his cock. He sucked in a breath, digging his fingers into her hips to stop her movement. “Don't you think I deserve it?”

“Fuck. Yeah.”

“Then let me have it.” She pressed her lips to his, the slick velvet of her tongue sneaking into his mouth. She moaned and ground down on his cock, taking him all the way inside her tight heat. “I deserve this.”

“Oh fuck. Whatever you want.” Jake claimed her mouth as he squeezed her ass, urging her to raise herself up and down at her own pace. She wanted control and he was happy to give it when the result was feeling like this. He was flying. He was grounded. He was home.

Piper was his home. He’d known it from the first time he saw her. He’d loved her from that momentthe only problem was his fear in admitting it. So much wasted time.

This wasn’t going to last long. Piper felt too good, too perfect in her slow slide up and down his dick. Her breasts, lush and hard tipped, brushed against his chest, raising goosebumps on his skin.

“Jake,” she murmured against his mouth, her fingers burrowing into his hair and gripping the strands. The slight pain only heightened his pleasure, the spike in his endorphins quickening his breath into a rapid pant. “I’m coming, baby.”

“Oh fuck.” There was no way he was lasting past the first clench of her sex around him. When she bore down on him and started to come, he followed her lead and gave himself over to the sensation of surrender. It started in his balls, liquid fire coursing over every inch of his skin until felt like he was lit up from the inside out, shimmering with the pleasure.

Unlike sex with any other person, coming down from the high with Piper was as good as the climb. The warm, soft length of her body nestled next to his own was the one thing in his life that made sense, the one thing that gave him strength to face another day in the emergency roomthe only thing that made him happy. He never wanted that to change.


“Hmmm?” She murmured against his skin, her relaxed tone matching the loose ease in her limbs.

“I’m tired of you stuffing an extra pair of undies in your purse.” She tensed slightly and he eased back, catching her eyes with his own as he continued. “But more than thatI don't want you calling any other place home. I want you herewith me. Starting tonight.”

“That’s a big step.”

“My heart already made the biggest step.”

“And that would be?” She slipped her hand under chin, her face propped up to get a good look at him, her mischievous smile making her look like a naughty angel.

He couldn't help but smile back. “The leap to loving you.”

“Wow. That’s a big leap.”

“Yep. One you don't want to make by yourself.” He needed the words and wasn’t ashamed to ask for them. Hearing them from her lips would be like winning the lottery.

“You didn’t jump alone,” Piper eased up his body, her mouth hovering just over his own.

“I love you.”

“I love you.”

Jake cupped her face in his hands, taking her mouth in a kiss calculated to possessnot that he owned herto let her know that she had him unequivocally. Piper moaned into his caress, her response to his kiss making him hard. At this rate they wouldn't make the party and he didn't care.
“I want to live with you. Here. Your place. Wherever,” he stated.

“Yes.” She smiled, no sign of doubt in her expression. “Happy New Year, baby.”

“Yes, it will be.”
