Screwdriver (A Royal House of Saene Spinoff) by Kiru Taye released last week in the Adult, Contemporary, Romance genre.
For most of her adult life, boss-lady Oumou has wanted to leave her hometown in pursuit of big-city fame. All her closest friends are doing bigger and brighter things elsewhere; one is even dating a prince. However, her plans to leave small-town Bali are put on hold when the pandemic hits. At least there are some positives. She’s enduring lockdown with her friend, Yahya, who is her exact opposite in personality. But he’s sexy, easy on the eyes, and cleans up his messes. Opposites attract, right?
Mechanic Yahya has two obsessions—fixing damaged cars and his hometown of Bali. He has no desire for fame or fortune. Nevertheless, since flamboyant Oumou set up shop right across the road from his auto garage, he’s developed a new obsession with her. Each day at work, he glimpses her glorious smile and the temptation for her spirals. But why bother? She won’t even consider him—someone she labels as dull—and they are just too different to work.
Then Yahya and Oumou are stuck together as quarantine buddies, and their attraction combusts in the confines of the apartment. Soon the man so skilled at unscrewing her wheel-nut becomes the sexy hunk satisfying her every fantasy. But what happens when reality kicks in the door and their differences threaten to tear them apart?
Footsteps announced Yahya coming out of the kitchen minutes later.
“Ou chanje rad ou.” You change your clothes. He growled in a low voice behind her.
She hid her smile and tilted her head, glancing at him over her shoulder. “I was feeling hot, so I changed to something lighter.”
He nodded, and his Adams Apple bobbed as he walked to the closest armchair and sat on it. His black t-shirt stretched across his chest and shoulders, and his denim trousers couldn’t hide the growing bulge. He grabbed the remote control, averting his gaze to the TV.
Okay. He hadn’t taken the bait. She would have to try harder.
“What would you like to watch?” he asked, flicking channels.
“Anything,” she replied, moving her legs apart, making her dress ride up a little so that the cleft of her buttocks would be visible to him. He would see the thin strip of black fabric covering her pussy.
He glanced at her and did a double take, his gaze zeroing on the globes of her bum teasing him under the dress’ hem.
She shivered, although it was hot, and the ceiling fan barely registered on her sweaty skin.
Grinning wolfishly, he dragged his gaze to her face, the trail burning her skin. “Oh, good. I think Wild Channel has the perfect programme.”
She didn’t realise exactly what he meant until she glanced at the TV in time to see a lion mount a lioness and start fucking, somewhere in the Serengeti.
“Wow,” she muttered. Her cheeks heated in mortification, yet she couldn’t glance away from the screen.
He chuckled, the deep, sexy sound vibrating in her belly and making her pussy throb with desire. He was playing with her, torturing her. He wasn’t going to make this easy for her.
Well, she could play the game too. She pushed up on her hands and knees, thrusting her bum up in the air, stretching.
“Yah—” she breathed his shortened name in a sultry tone, “—could you give me a massage, please?”
Fluttering her eyelashes, she looked at him.
He ate her up with the raw fire in his gaze. “Ou vle pwoblèm.” You want trouble.
Yes, a Yahya-shaped problem. Wanton need set her body ablaze, and her pussy clenched as the wetness seeped into the panties.
“No.” She played coy, pushing her bottom lip out. “My shoulders and back have been hurting. You said you wanted to help destress me … Please?”
“Fine. You asked for it.” He stood and stepped to the front of the sofa. “Pull your dress up.”
