I like a dom to be harsh and demanding, but I also like a little sugar to go with it. In my books, some doms are sweeter than others, but in the end, they all are willing to care for and protect their women when necessary.
In Mob Mistress, Lexi Tyler, a hairstylist in financial distress, has just entered into a “mistress” situation with mobster Bobby Manghini, agreeing to be available to him at all times in exchange for a luxury apartment and spending cash. But what happens when, on their second date, she gets bad news and falls apart?
In this excerpt, Lexi, a hairstylist in financial crisis, has struck a bargain with mobster Bobby Manghini, to be at his beck and call in exchange for a high-end apartment and spending money. On their second date, though, she gets a call that her sister’s in the hospital. Here’s how Bobby takes care of her:
He got out and her stomach tightened. As grateful as she was for his acceptance of her breakdown, she did not want to “be available” to him tonight. Not that she would refuse him if he insisted, but she really didn’t feel up to it.
As if he read her mind, he said, “Don’t worry, I’m not coming up for sex.” He met her on the other side of the car and put his hand on her back to lead her to the elevator.
What was he coming up for, then?
He unlocked the door to his place — her new place — and ushered her in, then headed to the kitchen. “What’s your comfort food?” he asked, opening the refrigerator.
“Your comfort food. What do you like to eat when you’re down?”
A giggle tried to make its way out of her depression, erupting as a sort of snorting sound. “Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.”
He opened the freezer and found her guilty indulgence, returning with the pint and a spoon.
She stood, dumbfounded. Really? Mr. You’re-Available-for-Me-when-I-Snap-My-Fingers was waiting on her? Knowing he wasn’t going to get sex? It made fresh tears pop into her eyes, but they weren’t the sad kind. More the kind she sometimes got whenever someone unexpectedly showed they cared.
She kicked off her heels and padded into the bedroom, changing into a pair of jammies. They were not sexy in the least, but they were her favorite, the thin pink cotton threadbare in places from repeated washing. When she returned to the living room, Bobby had settled on the micro suede couch to watch television.
He patted the seat beside him and she took it, tucking her legs up underneath her. He fed her bites of the decadent ice cream treat before taking them himself. “This is delicious,” he observed, examining the label. “You have good taste.”
When they finished the entire pint, he set it on the coffee table in front of them and put an arm around her, pulling her head against his shoulder. It had been a long time since she’d experienced anyone offering her tenderness, and she had not expected it from her demanding new sugar daddy. She settled against his warmth, letting his strength and powerful presence soothe her into a sleepy haze.
“Come on, let’s get you to bed,” he murmured when her eyes drifted closed. He helped her to stand and followed her into the bedroom, pulling the blankets back for her and tucking her in like a child. “Let me know if you need anything, okay?”
“I mean it. If you want to fly back to visit, just send me a text and I’ll get it arranged for you.”
“Thank you, Bobby,” she mumbled, too exhausted to be able to meet his eye.
He kissed her forehead. “Good night, Lex.”
“Good night. Thank you.”
She listened to the sound of his steps leaving, tears burning her eyes.
The last thing she needed was to fall head over heels for this guy.
Mob Mistress blurb
When hair stylist Lexi Tyler finds herself evicted from her apartment, her best friend sets her up with the mobster Bobby Manghini, knowing he likes to play sugar daddy. He offers her a luxury apartment overlooking the city and spending cash every time he sees her, but one thing is clear: he is the bossman.
Lexi soon discovers Bobby backs up his rules with firm, over the knee discipline, but he also takes responsibility for all her problems, giving her more support than she ever dreamed of having from a man.
Mobster Bobby Manghini likes to be the man in control, particularly with women, which is why he prefers a mistress for sex, even though he’s no longer married. When he strikes a deal with Lexi to be at his beck and call, he finds in her the full package — a hot, intelligent woman who is turned on by his dominance and willing to submit to his punishment. But when she finds out he doesn’t have a wife, she is hurt by the deception and severs all ties.
Can he prove to her their relationship meant more than a business arrangement? Or will he lose the one woman willing to give him everything he ever desired?
