Niko and Joe laid in the bed in the pool house kissing and touching each other for a little while after. Joe really enjoyed it, since it wasn’t only the act of sex he was missing out on. It was everything – from cuddling to kissing to exploring, even the after-sex banter. He missed everything. And their little romp brought him back to all the old familiar feelings. He could tell by the way they connected on just about every level that it wasn’t going to take long for his heart and his head to align. A fact he knowingly chose to ignore as her naked body pressed perfectly against his own. He could already distinguish the feelings of adoration coursing through him as he looked at her.
“As much as I would love to have round two with you, right here, right now… I need to go… work… soon,” Niko said, smiling at him as she lazily interlaced his fingers with her own.
“Mmm. Round two,” he hummed, his eyes heavily-lidded.
He let his fingers trail down her arm after she let go of his hand, using his index finger as a guide as it moved across her soft, tan skin.
“Round two will have to wait,” she giggled, wiggling away from him.
Joe groaned as she slipped out of his arms, holding on to her until the last possible second. He propped his head up on his hand and watched as she looked for her discarded clothing. She pulled her black lace panties back up her legs and bent down to pick up her shorts.
“Where is my bra… and my shirt?” She asked, pulling up the denim shorts and buttoning them back up.
“Out there,” Joe said, pointing to the doorway with a smirk on his face.
She giggled as she disappeared out of the bedroom. Joe pulled himself out of the bed and grabbed his own shorts, replacing them on his body. He walked to the doorway of the bedroom and leaned against its frame, watching as Niko hooked her bra back on her body and then threw her tank top back over her head. When she turned around, she caught sight of him, letting a smile curl up on her lips. He smirked back at her, enjoying everything about her.
“I’m gonna… go,” she said, pointing back at the main pool house door.
“Thee old love ’em and leave ’em, huh?” Joe quipped, unable to keep a smile off his face.
“That’s the way it’s gotta be, Mr. Jonas,” she said, putting emphasis on his name at the end, reminding him he was her boss. Joe raised his eyebrows at her as she closed the gap between them, leaving a chaste kiss on his lips to signify the parting of ways.
“I’ll see you later,” Joe said, slapping her bum as she turned and made her way to the door.
“Naughty!” She yelped, smirking back at him before she opened the door, immediately checking if the coast was clear. When it was, she disappeared out of sight, letting the door close behind her.
Joe sighed and turned back into the bedroom. He let his body flop back onto the bed as he ran his hands over his face, blowing out a large breath. They crossed the point of no return. He and Niko were no longer just flirting with each other. They just became lovers and he didn’t know how to process it in his brain. What freaked him out the most was the feelings of infatuation that burrowed their way deep inside of him. Sex was never just sex. Not to someone who had a heart and felt feelings. There were always strings attached. Always.
Niko snuck back to her room without running into anyone. She sat on her bed and re-lived every moment in her head. It was exciting. She never had sex with someone with so much experience – someone who knew what they were doing. High school boys and college boys – that’s all she ever had back in her day. The older man with the sexual maturity – she never knew what she was missing. Joe was a man that knew how to pleasure a woman and he did it well.
That afternoon, Niko took the kids and their dog Zeus swimming in the pool – something Jackson and Avery loved very much. Joe came outside and sat on one of the lounge chairs watching them. Every time Niko’s eyes met his from the pool, his whole body tingled.
Joe couldn’t help but stare at Niko, to just watch her with his children. She was so good with them – a natural with kids. That was even more of a turn-on to him. He should have looked for someone like her when he was younger – someone who wanted to have children with him. Instead, he let physical desire and recklessness guide him into Julia’s arms. And there he was, wishing the twenty-two year old nanny could take over motherly duties of his children. They sure as hell got more stimulation and love from Niko than they did from their own mother.
As they were all getting out of the pool, Niko wrapped towels around both of the kids and helped them dry off before she sent them on their way up to their bedrooms to change. She told Avery she’d be up to help her with her clothes in a few minutes and Avery happily ran off after giving Joe a quick kiss on the cheek. He smiled watching his kids disappear into the house and didn’t even notice when Niko walked up to him.
“You know, it’s incredibly distracting having you undressing me with your eyes, Mr. Jonas,” Niko cooed, smirking flirtatiously at him.
“Oh. Well, I guess I really can’t help myself,” he chuckled, looking over at her seductively. His gaze fell to the top of her breasts as he licked his lips.
“You’re doing it again,” she chuckled lightly.
“Like I said…” He retorted, smiling up at her.
“Like you said,” she repeated as she walked past him, trailing her finger across his arm. His skin tingled from her touch as he watched her walk into the house and out of his vision.
“God damn,” he breathed, running his fingers through his hair. He was in deep. That was for sure.
Joe went up to see if Jackson needed help getting changed, but he was already dressed by the time he got there.
“Hey, bud,” Joe said, laying down on his bed watching as Jackson contently played with some Hot Wheels toys on the floor.
“Hi, Daddy,” he said as he made car noises and exploding noises as he played.
“Did you have fun in the pool?” Joe asked, hanging his head over the mattress to watch him.
“Yeah!” Jackson said excitedly, looking over at his dad with a smile on his face.
“Good. Niko’s fun, huh?” Joe asked, smiling back at him.
“She’s so much fun. I like when she threw me into the water,” he said brightly.
“She threw you into the water, huh?” Joe chuckled.
“Yeah! It was so much fun!” He said animatedly.
“Sounds like it,” Joe laughed. He watched Jackson for a few more moments before he pulled himself up from the bed.
“I love you, dude,” he said, bending down to ruffle his wet hair.
“Love you, Daddy,” Jackson said as Joe made his way out of the bedroom, nearly smacking right into Niko in the process. His hands caught her hips as they steadied themselves.
“Well…” She giggled, looking into his eyes with her hands on his chest.
“Sorry,” he said, smirking bashfully at her as his thumbs rubbed against her hips bones.
“It’s alright,” she told him, her cheeks blushing.
Their embrace lingered longer than it should have. Julia could have very easily walked out of the office and witnessed their undeniable sexual tension. But that would mean she had to actually leave the office, which she was doing less and less as the days went by.
Joe pulled his hands away from her and took a step back.
“Uh… I should… I should go,” he told her awkwardly.
“Yeah. Yeah, sure,” she said, waving her hand through the air, stepping aside.
“I’ll, uh… I’ll see you, Niko,” he told her as he stepped around her.
“For sure, Mr. Jonas,” she said, continuing on to Jackson’s room.
Joe made his way down the hallway and rounded the corner into the office. Julia was startled by his presence.
“Joe,” she breathed.
“I’m gonna… I think I’m going to head down to LA to see what Nick’s up to. There’s nothing going on around here. The girls have the kids under control. Maybe you could ask one of them to cook dinner tonight?” He informed his wife, his speech coming out fast and garbled. He just really felt like he needed to get out of the house before he exploded.
“Uh, yeah,” Julia said, looking as if she were almost shell-shocked by his request.
“So, uh… yeah. I’ll see you when I get home. It might be late,” Joe said, turning back toward the door.
“Joe!” She said and he immediately turned to look at her.
“Yeah?” He asked.
“Are you alright? You seem a little bit flustered,” she said, sounding genuinely concerned.
“Oh, I’m fine. I think I’m just going a little stir crazy. I just need to get out of here for a while,” he told her.
“Okay,” Julia said with a nod.
“I’ll see you,” he said with a small wave before he took off out the office door.
He made his way into the bedroom and changed his clothes into something less casual than the shorts and t-shirt he was wearing. Grabbing his wallet and cell phone from the dresser, he left the room and headed downstairs. He could hear Niko’s voice in the kitchen with the kids and knew she must have been feeding them their afternoon snack. He contemplated going in there to say goodbye to them, but he thought better of it – feeling as if he were in Niko’s presence again, he might lose it.
A little while later, he was knocking at Nick’s front door. Joe’s sister-in-law, Liz answered with a smile.
“Hey, Lizzy. Is your husband home?” Joe asked her as he gave her a hug.
“He’s down in the studio, as per usual,” she said, rolling her eyes with a smile.
The thing about Nick was that he was just about as dedicated to his work as Julia was to hers. But the difference between them was that Nick knew when to quit and he knew that neglecting his family was completely out of the question.
Joe headed straight down to the home studio that he had a hand in helping create a few years back. Nick was sitting at the sound board with a guitar in his hand, strumming it idly.
“Hey, man,” Joe interrupted him.
“Joe, hey,” Nick greeted, smiling back at him. Joe took the seat next to him and put his elbows on his knees, running his hands over his face.
“What’s going on?” Nick asked in the tone where Joe was almost certain he already knew what was going on. Joe looked up at him through his eyelashes, giving him a look of guilt.
“You didn’t,” he breathed.
“I did,” Joe told him.
Nick sighed as he pulled the guitar from his lap and set it upright against the wall.
“You had sex with her, Joe?” Nick questioned. Joe nodded, sheepishly.
“Dude,” Nick breathed.
“I couldn’t help it,” he said, throwing his hands up.
“You couldn’t help it? Like, what? You tripped and ended up inside of her?” Nick scoffed with a laugh.
“Something like that,” Joe said, smirking at him.
“What are you going to do about Julia?” Nick asked curiously.
“I don’t know. That’s why I’m here. I couldn’t be in the same house as both of them. I was freaking out about it,” Joe said, looking up at Nick sheepishly.
“That’s your guilty conscience,” Nick pointed out and pursed his lips at Joe.
“I don’t regret it,” Joe told him honestly.
“Joe…” Nick sighed.
“I’m serious. She’s incredible, Nick. Uhh. I just… I can’t get enough of her,” Joe gushed, remembering how amazing she made him feel, how his life felt like it completely turned around in the one hour they spent in bed together.
“Then you need to make a decision. No, you know what you need to do? You need to realize, right now, that Julia is never going to change, Joe. She’s going to keep walking all over you like she has been for years. You need to do what’s best for you and those kids,” Nick told him sincerely.
“What’s best for the kids?” Joe choked out, his stomach dropping noticeably, making him feel nauseous in an instant.
“Don’t get all pissy with me, okay. You need to open your eyes. You need to realize that a divorce is probably going to be easier on them then seeing how lonely their father is. Or god forbid, one day finding out their father has been cheating on their mother. You will end up the bad guy, Joe,” Nick explained.
Nick’s words tore at him. There was a lot he refused to deal with and he knew it. There were so many bitter feelings harboring deep inside of him when it came to Julia. And he knew if he let them out, if he uncaged the beast, there was no way of bottling them back up. He would explode.
Joe let out an aggressive sigh.
“You just really need to make a decision,” Nick said finally.
Joe knew it. It was painfully obvious that he couldn’t just sleep around with the nanny behind his wife’s back. But that realization didn’t get him any closer to actually doing what he needed to do.
Joe spent the rest of the night working on music with Nick. It had been so long since he actually sat down to create music, and doing so with Nick made it that much better. It was almost like old times again.
Niko couldn’t exactly hide her disappointment when she realized Joe wouldn’t be around for dinner.
“If you don’t mind my asking, where is Mr. Jonas tonight?” She asked Julia carefully.
“Oh, he headed to LA to spend some time with his brother, Nick,” Julia said as she picked through her meal.
Niko’s heart sank. Was he going to be gone for upwards of a week again?
“Oh, will he be gone long?” She asked as nonchalantly as possible, trying to make it seem like she was just carrying on the conversation.
“He should be back late tonight. Why?” Julia asked, giving her an odd look.
“Oh, he just… he never wrote down the directions to the park where Jackson plays soccer,” Niko said, making up an excuse.
“Oh. He should be back, honey. Don’t worry. We’ll get them to you, I promise,” Julia chuckled lightly.
Julia calling her a pet name like ‘honey’ didn’t sit right with her, especially since she spent the morning sleeping with her husband. But there was nothing she could do about it, so she just nodded her head and focused on the food on her plate.
Niko’s best friend and roommate called her that night after she and Mary got the kids in bed. It was so nice to hear from her. She told Niko about the guy she met that summer. He was pre-med at Columbia and apparently some famous New York socialite. It was a nice segue for Niko to bring up Joe.
“Uh, so I met someone famous too,” Niko told her, biting her lip.
“Who?” Kelsey asked immediately.
“Uh, the father of the family I work for,” Niko said with a little chuckle.
“Are you serious?”
“Who is he?”
“Have you ever heard of the Jonas Brothers?”
“Yes. Who hasn’t heard of the Jonas Brothers?” Kelsey scoffed and Niko was reminded that Kelsey was three years older than her, so could have been a fan at some point.
“Uh, the dad is Joe Jonas,” Niko told her.
“What? Are you serious?” Kelsey gasped into the phone, causing Niko to cringe slightly.
“I’m serious,” Niko laughed.
“Is he still fucking gorgeous?” She asked immediately.
“Oh my god, Kelsey. He is insanely gorgeous. Like, ridiculously sexy,” Niko gushed, her cheeks blushing as she thought about their morning tryst in the pool house.
“If I tell you something, promise to not tell anyone?” Niko asked after a brief pause.
“Of course,” Kelsey said immediately. Niko had no reason not to trust her.
“Uh, we, uh, sort of… hooked up,” Niko said carefully and quietly.
“Me and Joe. We hooked up,” Niko said again.
“Like, hooked up hooked up?” Kelsey asked incredulously.
“You had sex with Joe Jonas?” Kelsey yelped into the phone.
“Mm-hmm,” Niko breathed in quiet confirmation.
“Holy shit!” Kelsey yelped, causing Niko to giggle.
“Wait. What about his wife?” Kelsey questioned.
“Um. She… she sucks,” Niko said, letting out a laugh. Could there be a better describing word for Julia Jonas? Kelsey laughed out loud.
“All she does is work. She barely comes out of the office. She couldn’t care less about Joe and the kids. It’s really sad,” Niko explained.
“So, he’s finding comfort in you?”
“Yeah. I guess so,” Niko answered.
“Wow, Niko. I’m in awe. Joe Jonas was totally a babe back in the day. It’s too bad he stopped making music. He had a great voice,” Kelsey told her.
“Yeah,” Niko said, thinking about how amazing it would be to hear Joe sing in real life instead of on some Jonas Brothers track from years ago.
Niko and Kelsey talked for a little while longer before Kelsey had to let her go because her Columbia boy was calling.
Joe still wasn’t back by the time Niko went to bed. It was sort of disappointing not being able to see him, but whatever. She knew she shouldn’t dwell. He wasn’t her boyfriend or anything. She shouldn’t be concerned about anything he did or didn’t do.
She fell asleep easily from being so worn out. She had an energetic round of sex that morning and an afternoon of swimming in the sun. She was beat.
It was pretty late as Joe drove back to the house. He was certain everyone was in bed, fast asleep. That knowledge sent a shiver of excitement through him. He could easily sneak into Niko’s room instead of going up to bed. Julia would just think he was still at Nick’s if she were to wake up. Oh, god. He thought of nothing else as he pulled into the driveway and quietly made his way up the front walk before quickly making a beeline to the pool house so he could grab some of the condoms he had hidden in there. If he and Niko were really going to do this, they would need a supply in her room as well.
It was incredibly dark as Joe crept down the hallway to Niko’s room. He hoped like hell that Mary wouldn’t suddenly come out of her room, catching him in the act. When he reached Niko’s door, he quietly knocked, but got nothing in response. He slowly turned the handle and pushed the door open, finding the room dark. But the moon was so bright that its soft glow through the sheer curtains illuminated Niko’s sleeping figure in the bed. She was incredible. Joe could have just sat there on the edge of her bed and watched her sleep. But he knew he couldn’t – that he needed to go up to bed at some point.
Joe placed his hand on Niko’s arm, gingerly shaking her as he whispered her name. When it didn’t work, he tried a steadier shake. Still nothing. He continued to shake her and say her name out loud, which finally awarded him with her stirring.
“Joe…?” He heard her tired voice respond to him.
“Oh my god. You are one of the hardest people to wake up. I’ve been down here for like five minutes,” he chuckled and she let out a low giggle.
“How was LA?” She asked as she sat up, running her fingers through her long blonde hair.
“It was fun. Nick wanted to get together,” he said with a passive shrug, not wanting to tell her he had a semi-mental breakdown and needed to talk to Nick about them.
She nodded in response, leaning over to turn on the bedside lamp. Her full beauty was brought into view and he smiled because of it.
“Are you up for round two?” He asked her hopefully. A smirk pulled up her lips as she looked at him.
“Is that a yes?” He questioned as he smiled back at her.
“Yes… but hold on. I’ll be right back,” she replied as she quickly got out of bed and dashed out the bedroom door faster than he could wrap his head around it.
Niko dipped into the bathroom and quickly brushed her teeth. She was not about to kiss him with morning breath.
Joe stared at the door for a few moments before he kicked off his shoes and crawled up in her bed, leaning against the headboard to wait for her. When her door tentatively opened again and she slipped back inside, the excitement consumed him. She was only wearing a skin tight tank top and a pair of tiny shorts. He watched every move she made as she sauntered back to the bed.
“Oh, I figured you’d be waiting for me in here naked,” she quipped, smirking playfully at him. Joe laughed, immediately sitting up to pull off his shirt.
“That’s more like it,” she told him as she sat down on the bed.
“Here. Will you hold on to these?” He asked, pulling out the condoms from his back pocket.
“Oh, yeah. Sure,” she said, nodding her head as Joe leaned over to put them in her nightstand drawer.
When he pulled it open, his eyes pleasantly met with none other than a small pink vibrator.
“Ohh, what is this?” Joe asked, dropping the condoms in the drawer and pulled out the pink sex toy. Niko immediately started giggling as her face turned bright red.
“How often do you use this?” He asked curiously, smiling wickedly at her.
“Put it back!” She giggled, trying to grab for it. He clicked it on and his eyes widened in surprise.
“Ooh, this thing has some power,” he laughed as he turned it back off.
“Seriously, put it back,” she said, reaching for it again as her blush nearly ate her alive.
“Naughty, naughty girl,” Joe laughed as he put it back in the drawer as requested.
“Shut up,” she said, still looking rather embarrassed.
“Come here,” he said, pulling her on top of him as he laid down on the bed.
Her lips met his and relaxed into it. He really enjoyed kissing her. It was another thing he missed all too much. Their kisses heated up quite fast and when Niko slipped one of her legs over him and sat astride him, he was more than a little excited. His hands slipped down to her hips as he looked up at her. She was incredible, so amazing.
“Mm,” he hummed, smiling up at her, immediately making her smile.
Niko leaned down a second later, connecting their lips again. Joe’s fingers quietly gathered her tank top and pulled it up. She let him take it off of her before she went back to kissing him. He could feel her naked breasts pressing against his bare chest and he knew he wanted to get a good look. Joe quickly wrapped his arms around her tightly, flipping her onto her back on the bed. He wanted to appreciate every inch of her body and he couldn’t do it with his body pinned down.
Joe ran his hand over her chest and down her stomach before his mouth came down to follow the same trail. His fingertips dug into her hips as they moved their way down, gathering the fabric of both her shorts and panties with them. He pulled them off of her body with a gratifying moan as she came completely into view. She was literally a work of art that needed to be cherished. And he was ready to do just that.
“So sexy,” Joe breathed and she giggled under his stare.
Her hand trailed down her body and it sparked a naughty thought in his mind.
“So, do you… do you ever think of me when you… you know?” He asked, sending her a sly smirk as he cocked his eyebrow playfully. Her giggles came out louder and her cheeks once again burned with blush.
“Well, do you?” He persisted.
“Maybe once or twice,” she admitted with a shrug, trying to act nonchalant about it. And Joe couldn’t help it when a wide grin formed on his face.
“Oh. That is so hot,” Joe groaned as his hands moved slowly over her body, unable to keep himself from exploring her.
“First night here—” She confessed, smirking up at him.
“You pleasured yourself to the thought of me on the first night?” He asked wide-eyed, cutting her off mid-sentence.
He didn’t need to hear anymore – he felt the sensations her words caused, directly in his cock. If he wasn’t already as hard as a rock her words sure as hell would have done it.
She nodded her head and let out that bashful giggle. Dear fucking god.
“Jesus,” he groaned as he pressed his lips hard against hers and she giggled into his kiss.
“I need you right now before I explode from sheer excitement,” he laughed, pulling up to look into her eyes.
“Here I am,” she said, offering herself up. Joe groaned inwardly. She had no clue what she was doing to him.
It took less than a minute for him to roll a condom on and position himself over her body.
“I want to be on top,” she told him and his stomach turned with excitement.
“Okay,” Joe said, smirking wildly at her as they switched positions.
“Are you ready for this?” Niko asked, smiling suggestively down at him as her palms pressed against on his bare chest.
“So ready,” he confirmed.
When she lowered herself down on top of him, he let out a groan. She felt absolutely amazing and he very much enjoyed the vantage point he had of her. He was able to watch as she happily bounced her body on top of him, her breast bouncing in the sexiest possible way. And he loved being able to reach up and touch her whenever he felt like – which was pretty much the whole time.
When he really felt his body reacting to her, when he knew he could lose it at any moment, he grabbed onto her hips and started bucking his own up into her to help out, which caused her to gasp with every thrust. It was probably one of the sexiest things he heard in a long time. Just hearing her reacting to something he was doing to her – oh, goddamn.
When she grabbed onto the headboard to help steady herself, it only got better. She pulled up and came back down harder and deeper and fuck – he was about to lose it.
“I am—fuck, oh my god,” Joe groaned lowly as he felt the tingling’s of orgasm deep within him.
“Don’t stop. Just… not yet,” she panted heavily as she began moving faster and faster to try to push herself over the edge.
“Oh, god,” she whimpered and he knew she was close.
When her body gave out, he knew it hit her, so he gripped firmly onto her hips and kept the rhythm to get him there as well. Only a few more thrusts and he was spilling into the condom.
“Oh, fuck…” Niko moaned pleasingly, collapsing next to Joe on the bed.
“That was torture…” She panted, placing her hand on her forehead.
“Torture? Not the word I would use, but to each their own,” Joe chuckled as his chest heaved, trying to catch his breath.
“It was torture to not be able to scream out loud,” she giggled, turning her body toward his.
“Oh, god. I know. Maybe we should stick to the pool house rendezvous,” he suggested with a light laugh.
“I kind of like you sneaking down to my room at night. It’s hot,” Niko confessed, smiling over at him.
“Yeah?” He questioned, smirking wildly back at her.
“Yeah,” she said with a confirming nod.
“We’ll have to have both then. And tomorrow… tomorrow Jackson has soccer camp. We can either go sight-seeing again or go somewhere… to be together,” he offered.
Niko looked to the ceiling as she tapped her chin with her finger looking as if she were really thinking about it.
“Hmm. We’ll see,” she said finally, smiling over at him.
“Okay,” he chuckled, leaning over to give her another quick kiss before he sat up. Unfortunately, he really needed to get up to bed.
“Are you hittin’ it and quittin’ it?” Niko joked as she sat up on her elbows, watching him get out of bed. Joe let out a light laugh, remembering how he made a similar joke in the pool house.
“It is two in the morning and I’m technically still in LA according to Julia. I should probably go up to bed,” he told her as he quietly disposed of the condom in her garbage can and re-dressed himself.
“Alright,” she said, smiling at him from her spot on the bed.
Joe took a few moments to really appreciate her from where he stood. She lay perfectly naked looking up at him with a small smirk tugging at her lips. Her breasts lay bare, her nipples flawlessly erect, making him want to crawl back in the bed and worship them once again. He would spend all night worshipping her entire body if he could – if she were really and truly his. But he couldn’t because he wasn’t hers. He was Julia’s and she was asleep upstairs thinking he was in Los Angeles with his brother.
Joe quickly walked over to Niko, leaning down to plant a kiss on her lips.
“Do me a favor and think of me the next time you use that,” he challenged, smirking at her as he pointed to the nightstand drawer that housed her vibrator.
“Who else would I think of when you fuck me like that?” She giggled, biting at her bottom lip.
“Fair point,” he chuckled, leaning in for one more kiss before he turned and headed for her bedroom door.
“Goodnight, Nikola,” Joe said, sending her one last smile and then a wink as he was leaving.
“Goodnight, Mr. Jonas,” she said with a hint of seduction in her tone. Joe chuckled lightly as he shut her door behind him.
He snuck up to the master bedroom he shared with his wife and pulled off all his clothes except for his boxer briefs, crawling into bed next to her. Julia rolled over a moment later, looking over at him.
“Where have you been?” She asked, sounding as if he’d just woken her.
“Uh, Nick and I just lost track of time. We were working on some music,” he told her – which was only a half-truth, but at least it was a little true.
“Did you have fun?” She asked, rolling back over away from him.
“I always have fun with Nick,” he told her, letting his body relax into the mattress.
“Good,” she yawned.
Joe lay there in the silence thinking only of Niko and how he wished he was on top of her or under her. It didn’t really matter, so long as they were touching.
He fell asleep as memories of their late night romp replayed in his head.
