Dirty Kisses

Hello The Book Queen! I’m so glad to be here today, talking about dirty kisses! If you’re like me, you prefer fresh breath for kissing. But sometimes it ruins the mood and spontaneity when a character is overly concerned with dental hygiene. Sex isn’t supposed to be tidy, and kissing doesn’t always have to be “clean.”

For Riding Dirty, I settled on an unusual flavor for Cole and Mia’s first kiss: cilantro. I love cilantro, but some people hate it. I figured it was better than onion, and I liked the idea of spicy kisses. So I repeated this detail in the following scene. After a rough night, Mia and Cole share a breakfast of menudo, a Mexican soup that is believed to be a hangover cure. Then they return to bed for some dirty kissing and dirtier talk.

Mia allowed Cole to wrap his arms around her. “Telling a woman not to worry is very similar to telling her to relax.”

“Relax, babe.”

Now he was goading her. She tried to wrestle him and lost. They rolled across the mattress, play-fighting until she was panting and begging for mercy. He had her arms pinned above her head and her lower body trapped underneath his. She squirmed against his hold. When he lowered his mouth to hers, she turned her head to the side.

“Do you want to be on top?” he murmured, kissing her throat.

“No, I want to shower and brush my teeth.”

“I like you the way you are.”


He nodded and caught her elusive lips, kissing her thoroughly. Their tongues mingled, cilantro-laced. He didn’t taste bad, so maybe she didn’t either. His mouth was hot, spicy, soothing. Maybe dirty sex was the best hangover cure.

He kissed her again and again, letting her get used to his weight. Soon she forgot her misgivings and wrapped her legs around his waist. She could see their reflection in the mirror, the backward tattoo across his shoulders. W-A-L-T-O-U. 

When he released her hands, she threaded her fingers through his hair. Her nipples brushed his chest, and his cloth-covered erection nudged her steamy sex. He hadn’t entered her last night, or the night before. She was suddenly desperate for him to penetrate her and give her a good pounding. 

“Fuck me,” she said in his ear.
