The Bishop: A Tanglewood Novella by Skye Warren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love this world!! And if I’m being honest, I really love Skye! Her word wizardry is unrivaled and ever growing. Her stories are not always for me but I dive into them anyway because reading her work excites me. It is always passionate and edgy and fluid.

The Bishop is one of those stories that I just didn’t want to end. It wasn’t because of the storyline, but because of Anders and Natalie. I just wanted more. There is so much passion between them I wanted a full length book. Seriously, it was delicious LOL And yes, the intrigue behind the suspense hooks the reader as well but it’s their passion and love story that truly kept me on the edge. The cameo appearances of previous characters in the Tanglewood world made it increasingly enjoyable for me. This is my favorite world that Skye has created, and she did not disappoint with this addition. It had everything I have come to love and expect from a Skye story!

He takes his time rinsing the conditioner, letting the spray beat down on my shoulders, my neck, until I’m soft and malleable and burning hot. Everything feels completely right about this—being naked in front of him, being helpless beneath his hands. Being his. I know that if I looked down at his slacks I’d see the proof of his desire, but I can’t look away from his eyes.

He shuts off the spray, and the sudden quiet in the room throbs with that one single part of my body he hasn’t touched. It’s a sultry melody, that knowledge. It bounces off the mirrors and the tiles. It floats on the dampness in the air.

The soap rests on the marble table, still slick from its earlier work.

He picks it up and looks at it. There’s a war being fought inside him. A decision being made. He leans toward me, and my thighs part in anticipation. I’m ready for him, more than ready. I’m aching.

The soap is in front of me. He’s holding it out, offering it to me. “You can wash there yourself,” he says, but they’re not words anymore. They’re a rumble. They’re a landslide.

I hold his gaze, which promises both pleasure and pain in equal portion. A smart woman would have avoided him altogether, but I’m here, I’m here. I’m already here, and if I’m going to have the pain, I deserve the pleasure, too. I grasp his wrist, and both of us freeze at the sensation. It’s the first move I’ve made in this bathtub. No longer passive. Even this small action changes everything. I can feel the tendon and muscle and bone beneath my grip. And the warmth of him. God, he’s burning.

“Please,” I whisper. “Do it for me.”

I’m talking about more than a bath. I’m talking about an orgasm and about protection. I’m talking about life, and the way I’ve been holding my head high through a million hard days. And this day, this one day, I want to let him do this for me.

“Yes,” he breathes, the sound almost a groan.
