About LISTEN TO ME:

In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s brand new series, five best friends open a hot new restaurant, but one of them gets much more than she bargained for when a sexy former rock star walks through the doors—and into her heart.

Seduction is quickly becoming the hottest new restaurant in Portland, and Addison Wade is proud to claim 1/5 of the credit. She’s determined to make it a success and can’t think of a better way to bring in new customers than live music. But when former rock star Jake Keller swaggers through the doors to apply for the weekend gig, she knows she’s in trouble. Addie instantly recognizes him—his posters were plastered all over her bedroom walls in high school—he’s all bad boy…exactly her type and exactly what she doesn’t need.

Jake Keller walked away from the limelight five years ago and yearns to return to what’s always driven him: the music. If he gets to work for a smart-mouthed, funny-as-hell bombshell, all the better. But talking Addie into giving him the job is far easier than persuading her that he wants more than a romp in her bed. Just when she begins to drop her walls, Jake’s past finally catches up with him.

Will Addie be torn apart once again or will Jake be able to convince her to drown out her doubts and listen to her heart?

#ReleaseBoost ~ Good Girl vs. Bad Boy by: Jessie Evans ~ @JessieDEvans @GiveMeBooksBlog

 

 

 

Title: Good Girl vs. Bad Boy
Series: Brody Brothers #1
Author: Jessie Evans
Genre: Sexy Romantic Comedy
 Release Date: November 12, 2015
Blurb

Let the battle of the sexes begin… He’s hot, wild, unpredictable, untamable, and her best friend’s older brother.

Colton Brody is everything a good girl like Phoebe Page should avoid. But since her sister Kelly’s death, Phoebe isn’t as worried about being good as she used to be. She wants to live big with no regrets, the way Kelly did, and she intends to start with having a top secret, super steamy, no-strings-attached holiday fling with the man she’s crushed on her entire life.

What could go wrong?

Except everything?

Wounded in action and discharged without a chance to prove himself, all Colton cares about is getting back into the Marine Corps where he belongs. He will not get sucked into small town drama, will not take that promotion at the firehouse, and certainly won’t fall in love with his little sister’s best friend. He’s down for friends-with-benefits, nothing more, and plans to leave town long before quirky, bossy, cute-as-a-button Phoebe can get under his skin.

He is in control.

At least until a certain sexy brunette turns his world upside down.

It isn’t long before Colton finds himself buying flowers, talking feelings, and wishing Phoebe wanted more than another night of hot, no-holds-barred sex. Because when he’s with Phoebe even hot and dirty feels like making love.

Now Colton will have to decide what’s worth fighting for—the dreams a plane crash stole from him or the dream he’s holding in his arms. 

WARNING: Good Girl vs. Bad Boy contains a mix of heart-warming romance, quirky characters, laugh out loud moments, and blisteringly hot banging. If you don’t like hot sex, laughter, mentions of humping unicorns, turkey bowling, off-beat town rituals, or graphic descriptions of artisanal pancakes, steer clear.

Love can take some time to break in…
Teagan O’Brien, heiress to the Riley O’Brien & Co. denim empire, is anything but a spoiled rich girl. She’s worked hard to secure her place in the family business and can hold her own, in and out of the office. Only one man has ever been able to get under her skin—sexy football star Nick Priest. Years ago they crossed the line from friends to lovers, but he left her heartbroken. Since then, she’s been determined to keep him at arm’s length—no matter how tempting he looks in his jeans…
Nick has fortune, fame, and looks that make most women hot and bothered. But he doesn’t have the woman he really wants. He knows he screwed up when he walked away from Teagan, and now that he has a second chance, he’ll do whatever it takes to win her over—no matter how
tongue-tied he gets…

Excerpt

“Late night?” he asked.

He told himself he was way too interested in what she’d been doing, but that didn’t stop him from leaning forward to hear her response. She nodded, but surprisingly she didn’t elaborate. He narrowed his eyes. Was she purposely not telling him what she’d done last night?

“Doing?” he persisted.

The coffeemaker beeped, and Teagan pushed away from the counter without answering. She opened the cabinet, pulled out two mugs, and filled them with coffee.

Grabbing some half-and-half from the fridge, she splashed a generous amount in his mug, just as he liked it. She dumped a huge amount of sugar into her coffee, and he shuddered at the thought of how sweet it would be.

She placed his mug in front of him before picking up hers. She gazed at him over the rim of it as she blew on her coffee.

“So, you’re bored,” she stated flatly. “You’re desperate for company, and you want to do something touristy today.”

She took a small sip of her coffee, waiting for his reply.

“Right,” he answered, although he wasn’t being entirely truthful.

He wasn’t desperate for company. He knew other people in the city now. In fact, he knew more than a few in the biblical sense. And he definitely wasn’t bored. How could he be when he spent so much time with Teagan?

“What do you have in mind?” she asked, pushing her tangled hair away from her face.

“Brunch. JFK Library.”

She stared at him, an unreadable expression on her pretty face. When she didn’t respond, his stomach cramped a little at the thought that she might not want to go with him. The outing wouldn’t be any fun without her.

After a long moment, Teagan nodded and left him in the kitchen, presumably to get ready. As he raised his mug and took a drink, he realized two things: he didn’t like her coffee, and he didn’t want to spend his free time with anyone but her.

#CoverReveal ~ Fair Trade by: Dylan Cross ~ @DylanCross7

Fair Trade new cover

Fair Trade new cover

“When you’re at the top, the only way to go is down.”

Corporate VP Joanna Barnes is condescending, domineering and micromanaging. She belittles and insults the workers beneath her. In other words, she’s a bitch.

Her behavior at her industry’s trade show is no different. Her poor intern, Steve, has been on the receiving end of her verbal abuse all day. But, when the two of them get behind closed doors in the hotel room… it will be Steve’s turn to call the shots, as he literally brings the curvy executive to her knees…

Fair Trade is a tale of role reversal. Curvy VP Joanna is loathed and despised by all of her subordinates. Steve, however, knows how to handle a woman like Joanna, and it will be a ride she’ll never forget…

Review (supplied by author)

Joanna is the boss from hell; Steve is her trainee who can do nothing right, and she lets him know about it at every opportunity. We’re
introduced to both characters at their company’s trade show, where they’re working a display booth together. We cringe as Joanna lays
into her intern repeatedly, referring to him sarcastically as “genius” and reminding him that he “doesn’t get paid to think.” At this point,
we ask ourselves why he doesn’t just give his notice.

The answer comes in the main part of the story, and Cross doesn’t waste time in getting us there. The two are lovers, but with a twist:
it’s complete and total role reversal. A half hour after taking a brutal verbal beating from Joanna in public, she’s blindfolded outside
his hotel room door, begging for sex. Perhaps seeking payback for her earlier abuse, he makes her describe the purpose of her visit in
explicit detail, even while other hotel patrons pass in the hallway. (She gets groped by strangers a couple of times, but no serious action
here.) When he finally grants her admittance to his room, she’s made to crawl to him on her hands and knees. He even strips her of her
right to speak of herself in the first person tense. Instead, Joanna is made to refer to herself with such colloquial titles as “this
skank” and “your whore.” Steve lays it on thick as well, labeling his boss with the filthiest, most degrading names imaginable.
Delightfully, he even speaks to her in the same verbiage which she used to berate him: when she says that she entered the hotel room because
she thought it was what he wanted, he informs her that she “doesn’t get paid to think.”

This story is packed with action, but it’s not novel-length. Dylan Cross moves the story along well, and doesn’t bog it down with
needless details. We’re never told what the company’s actual niche is; nor is it relevant to the story. The physical descriptions of the
main characters are also largely left to our imagination. Steve the trainee is in his early twenties and is well-endowed, but we’re not
inundated with descriptions of “rippling abs” or “steely, penetrating blue eyes.” In fact, Joanna is blindfolded for a good portion of the
scene, and the entire story is told from her perspective.

We’re given a little more detail about her: a dyed blonde with a large chest, fifteen years older than her trainee and a very full
figure which she’s uncomfortable about. In fact, in this reader’s opinion, this is what sets the story apart from other “raunchy reads.”
Rather than giving Joanna a stripper or gymnast’s body, Cross instead elected to write her as a real-life woman, and it’s what makes the
story work: like thousands of women who aren’t a size 2, Joanna is dealing with tremendous insecurity about her physical appearance.
However, as is often the case, others around her have no problem with the way she looks, and accept her as she is. This includes a number
of observers and voyeurs, as well as Steve himself. Ostensibly, he could have someone his own age, but instead pursues an affair with his
much-older boss. The various sex games he plays with her, while seemingly centered on humiliation and degradation, actually end up
serving the opposite purpose: demonstrating to Joanna that she is a very sexy and desirable woman.

Compared to Dylan Cross’ other work, this storyline is more refined. The sex is consensual. At one point, Joanna balks and wants to end
the affair, but her lover won’t let her and instead sets her straight. There’s spanking and whipping, but it doesn’t overshadow the story.
The name-calling is the piece which is most likely to turn certain readers off: it gets pretty vulgar. However, it’s obvious that it’s
part of the play; it’s also understood by both parties that, if the intern were to employ such degrading talk anywhere other than the
bedroom, he’d immediately find himself unemployed.

This story is a recommended read. A word of caution, however: if you have a tyrannical “boss from hell,” chances are you’ll never look at
her in the same way again!

fbhExcerpt

“I’m capable of taking care of myself, you know!”
He smirked at me looking amused. “Sweetheart, I’ve seen you in action so that’s not up for debate, but no fucker is gonna put his hands on you like that when I’m around.”
I lifted my chin at him in defiance. “What’s it gotta do with you?” I sounded like a petulant teenager, but he just grinned at me, his arrogance riling me up further. “We’ll see”
He pushed me back toward the table before addressing Christian and Maddie, “I’m gonna take her home.” He indicated at me with a jerk of his head and I exploded, my temper finally getting its release after the arsehole on the dancefloor.
“Excuse me! I’m right here! I’ll go home when I damn well please, not when you say, who the bloody hell do you think you are!” He grinned at me and rolled his eyes, infuriating me almost to the point of combustion.
Maddie pulled herself upright into a sitting position, trying to extricate herself from Christian’s grasp. “We’re going now too. C’mon Lee I’ll come as well” Maddie tried to pacify me but Nate shook his head.
“You guys stay, or go together. Whatever,” He shrugged. “I’m taking Lena”
Maddie’s eyes flicked to me uncertainly as I looked at him stunned, trying to think of a response more eloquent than “Fuck off!”
Maddie started to speak, but Christian whispered in her ear just as Nate cut her off. “It’s not a request. I’ll have her text you”
His playfulness from earlier had been replaced by a cool confident authority. I gaped at him as he spoke to her. As he turned back to me I met him with a face like thunder, which caused a huge grin to break across his face again.
I glanced back at Maddie for help, expecting her to be outraged at Nate’s behavior but she was smirking at me, looking somewhat impressed with him. Trust her to be taken in with the caveman behavior.
I felt like stamping my foot and shouting. This is not how I was used to being treated. This was not how I allowed myself to be treated. I was a grown woman of nearly 25; I did what I wanted when I wanted. I was practically running a company for God’s sake.
As if sensing my new-found resolve Nate cocked an eyebrow at me a small smile playing on his lips as he leaned in “Don’t make me throw you over my shoulders Princess. There are a number of ways you can make your exit but you should know every one of them involves me” He winked at me looking relaxed, an arrogant smirk on his face. I scowled back but allowed him to lead me from the bar.
The cold night air hit me and I realized how unsteady on my feet I felt.
He was beside me in an instant. “If I’d have known I’d be taking you home I’d have brought a jacket” He said with a smile as he gently rubbed my arms before wrapping his own around me in a warm embrace.
I stood tucked inside his arms, my back pressed close to his chest while we waited for a taxi. “If I’d known you’d be taking me home I’d have stayed in,” I quipped back and he laughed, a deep rumbling sound that had me grinning in spite of myself.

Mated Mist Blurb:

The Talon Pack continues with an outcast witch and a wolf who can see past the darkness.

As Heir to the Talon Pack, Ryder Brentwood carries the responsibility of not only protecting his Pack, but ensuring its future. Only no one knows that as he does this, he must also shield his people from their past. When a witch with no ties bursts into his life, he must decide if he can overcome the depravity of his secrets and trust the one person who could break the fragile hold on his control.

Grieving over the loss of her twin and on the run from the unknown, Leah Helm knows she is far more alone than she thought possible. Her coven shunned her before she was born and the wolves she sought protection with are in a war of their own. When a wolf with a whisper of secrets is forced to work with her in order to protect their people, she finds she might not be so alone after all.

The world knows more than they ever have before about those shrouded in darkness, while Ryder and Leah are thrust into the center of a conflict they never should have been part of to begin with. On their journey they must not only fight those against them, but the burning temptation that is flaring between them. Fate might have paved their path, but that doesn’t mean they have to follow.

Off Limits: A Stepbrother MMA Romance
by Callie Harper

Tuck

I like to fight and I like to fuck.
Now’s my shot to fight for real, step out from my billionaire father’s shadow and be my own man. This summer’s all about going after my goal of becoming a pro MMA fighter.
The problem is the girl I want to fuck. She’s driving me crazy with her little yoga outfits, her creamy skin, luscious curves and wide-eyed innocence. Normally, I’d hit it and quit it, get her out of my system and focus.
But she’s my fucking stepsister. And she hates me. This summer we’re supposed to spend eight weeks together living under the same roof.
I need to taste her. I won’t rest until she’s writhing beneath me, begging me to let her come. I’m a man who gets what he wants, and what I want now is Jewel.

Jewel

I want him so bad it hurts. I’ve never felt this way before.
I’ve never had a problem keeping my distance from bad boys. The more muscles, tats and testosterone, the more I ran the other way. I learned my lesson, growing up with a trainwreck of a mother.
Until now.
Tuck makes my panties melt. He keeps me up at night, twisting in the sheets, obsessed with fantasies while I touch myself.
But he’s my stepbrother. And he’s an alpha, dominant asshole.
We’re sharing a house and he’s walking around shirtless, every inch of him ripped with hard muscle, sweaty after his brutal workouts. I don’t think I can hold out much longer. I’ve always been the good girl, but he makes me want to be bad.

***Off Limits is a standalone stepbrother romance novel with a HEA (85,000 words).

ABOUT SINFUL LONGING:

He’s the inked brother. The one you’re wondering about. The bad boy of the family.

Colin Sloan has a past. He’s done things he’s not proud of, but he’s living differently now. Making changes in his life. Working hard, working out harder, and trying to win over one woman. He’s utterly crazy about Elle Mariano, and though the sex is epic, their friends-with-benefits arrangement just isn’t cutting it anymore. He wants all of her, and is determined to prove he’s what she needs in her life.

Elle is fiery, loyal, and in major lust with Colin Sloan. He’s everything she craves in a man — smart, sexy, kind — and a rock star between the sheets. But his past hits too close to home for her, and the people she has to protect. There isn’t room in her life for a relationship with Colin. Especially when she’s forced to keep a secret that could tear his family apart…

EXCERPT:

             Why, oh why, did he have to be off-limits? Why did he have to fall squarely under the heading of do not pass go? It was truly fucking unfair because no one had ever made her feel like this. Like she was high on a touch. Like she was deliciously dizzy from a kiss. She wanted him so badly, and not just physically. She wanted more of him, but her emotions had to be cordoned off tonight. She told herself to let go for this one last night, let go of everything but the way he made her feel so alive.

“Close your eyes,” he told her firmly, and she let her eyelids drift closed, giving in to sense. Giving in to touch.

Maybe she was selfish. Or maybe she just wanted to feel a little something that was solely for her tonight. Nobody could deliver that better than this man.

He was kneeling behind her. She couldn’t even see him. But she was keenly aware of his presence as he dipped his mouth closer to her skin. His lips fluttered over her sensitive neck once more. She ached, pulsing between her legs as he kissed her all over. A snapping sound fell on her ear, and her hair spilled from its clip onto her neck as he undid her twist.

“Oh God,” she gasped, because she knew what was next.

His hands dove into her hair.

Fuck me now. Just fuck me now.

He’d discovered all her secrets the very first time he’d kissed her and explored her body. He’d read her responses as if it were his top-secret assignment to know every inch of her skin, then he’d remembered and sought them out, focusing on all the places that drove her wild. The back of her knee. The inside of her arm. Her neck, the gateway to her pleasure.

She was hopeless with him. He’d unlocked the code to all her desires, and he used it masterfully.

He threaded his talented fingers through her curls, gripping, and she moved with him, moaned for him, as if she were the notes he played on a cello. He was the musician; she was the instrument. He played and he played and he played, and her body sang for him, a song of pure desire. Of heat. Of want.

He twisted her hair once around his hand, pulling it to the side, and she tilted her head that way, giving him more room to devour her neck with kisses, like he was starved for her. He lavished pleasure all over her, leaving her drenched in sensation from soft, fluttery whispers along her neck, territorial kisses that claimed her as his, all mixed with the whiskery rub of his stubble. His ever-present scruff was trimmed to mere millimeters but long enough to brush against her skin with every kiss, bringing the intoxicating mix of soft and hard, of rough and tender. He rubbed his chin along her shoulder, and she arched into him.

He snaked an arm over her shoulders, grazing along her breasts as he traveled down her belly, his fingertips dancing against her waist.

“You like what I do to you.” It wasn’t a question.

“So incredibly much,” she said, as he flicked the tip of his tongue across her shoulder. When he kissed her like this, and he touched her like that, she wanted to give herself to him fully. The way he wanted. The way he’d asked for. A voice in the back of her head started to argue with her, to warn her what happened when she made choices in heated moments like this, and she tensed for an instant.

But this was different. This was a moment she was choosing to relish. A night of pleasure.

His hand reached the crest of her hip and her brain went dormant. He traced the top of her panties through the fabric of her dress. “Show me how much you like giving in. Show me how wet you are.”

She yanked up her skirt, bunching it near her waist, giving him instant access to the V of her legs. Even with her panties on, there was no hiding her arousal.

He groaned huskily. “Look at you, Elle. Look at how wet you get. For me.” His fingers glided up the soft flesh of her thighs, and she parted her legs for him. Grazing the wet panel, he whispered, “I want to feel that all over my dick. I want this sweet wetness all the fuck over me. Tell me how much you want me inside you right now. Tell me.”

“Oh God,” she panted. “Yes, God yes. I want that. I want it so much.”

“You want it?”

You,” she said quickly, correcting her error. “I want you so much.”

Please House Blurb

Asylums are for the insane, a place where outcasts live and die, where rule-breakers are broken. Strange inhabitants live in secrecy behind locked doors. Lips never speak of what’s seen or heard. 

Unlike the others, The House has one secret it shares with special occupants. Those admitted for transgressions of the flesh are embraced, their curiosity welcomed, their behaviors rewarded. Roles of domination and submission are taught with equal vigor, and those who leave emerge whole and stronger than ever. 

Rose discovers this truth when she’s sent to The House for the treatment of her erotomania. In a time where modesty and prudence are revered, the experience shatters tradition, leaving her with forbidden knowledge few women possess. When she finds herself in the arms of a formidable lover, the gauntlet is thrown, and power unleashes power. 

Mistress Of The House Blurb

Harry’s bedroom escapades are dead in the water. Thelma decides it’s time to take some initiative and add some spice to his life. While the order of the day for women is subservience and modesty, she’s having none of that nonsense. She decides it’s time to put her newly acquired amorous skills to use and show Harry the time of his life.

Where did Thelma learn her skills? Hidden deep in the countryside, on the outskirts of town, The House isn’t a run-of-the mill asylum. It harbors one secret so hot and tempting, that only the worthy few are invited to the special side, a world filled with wily activities and wicked debauchery that makes the prudish blanche.

Upon discharge from The House, Thelma discovers that using her knowledge is the easy part. But the task of winning Harry’s heart and enduring devotion proves a daunting task that leaves her questioning all she’s learned.

Master Of The House Blurb

A rich lifestyle gives Willie the best of everything. Despite all the trappings of fine living that come with money, he finds himself at the crossroads of his life, forlorn and unsure of his future. His parents send him to The House, the local asylum, for help. What he thinks is treatment for his gloomy disposition turns out to be a series of unconventional lessons on sharpening his sensuality and honing his skills in the bedroom. When he returns home, he seeks out Louise, the one whom he’s decided will make his life complete. Together they embark on an amorous adventure that would leave most couples blushing. She’s determined to find out where he’s been. He’s determined to keep his secret. An invitation to a private art show nearly becomes Willie’s undoing, and he scrambles to maintain control. Will everything he’s learned be enough to get him what he wants?

Dance of Desire Blurb

The House, a local asylum, harbors a dark secret, one that’s guarded with reverence and fierce protection. One side is for teaching select patients fine skills in ways of the flesh. Daren, an attendant at The House, breaks tradition by requesting to treat a patient from the other side, a world totally opposite his own. At nights, Serena thinks she’s alone, sneaking away to perform a steamy, unconventional dance routine in the moonlight; but Daren has been watching her with a lusty eye. Unwittingly, her sensual activities have riled his libido, and he vows he’ll take her to the heights of ecstasy, if she’ll agree to let him tutor her. What starts out as a mere tryst turns into problems as both fall prey to their own angst. Is Daren ready to leave The House, settle into a normal life, and take Serena with him? Does Serena have other ideas? Both tread lightly where emotions are concerned, while antics in the bedroom are no-holds-barred. Struck with an idea, Daren turns Serena’s experience upside down with an unusual plan he’s hatched. Sometimes plans don’t work the way they were intended to.
Taming Bad Blurb

Is biology a friend or foe? This question plagues Newton Grenfield daily. He believes that a man’s virility is the key to his masculinity, his identity. One man’s abundance is another’s curse. Newton discovers how cursed he really is when his libido refuses to shut down, spurring him on in the continual search for the right woman who will welcome his advances in the bedroom. Overeager attempts at finding love fall flat, earning him not only a cold shoulder from the ladies, but an angry father who decides treatment at The House, the local asylum, will do his son good. There’s one catch to this treatment the father demands of Dr. James, The House physician. He wants Newton’s antics stopped—for good. 

The doctor has a radical, fail-proof plan that will cut to the core of his patient’s masculine ideologies in more ways than one. Above all, Newton’s attendant must ensure he’s as much of a man when he leaves The House as when he entered it, by helping him hone his lovemaking skills in order to secure the lady of his dreams. One night, Newton meets a young woman wandering the halls of The House, and his life changes forever. He thinks he’s found the right one for him. When he experiences the ultimate change at the hand of Dr. James, he’s left with answering to a confused lover, and wondering if the treatment made a bad situation worse. 

Pleasure House
He came around from behind the desk and stood next to her. “You seem a little confused, so let me see if I can clarify a few things for you. First of all, the treatment here at The House is unique, and we prefer to keep our activities hidden from public knowledge. We find that the community, in general, tends to repress certain emotions and behaviors. You, on the other hand, will be addressing those emotions and behaviors. You’ll learn things here no one else does.”
“Is that why I’ve heard very little about this place? I mean, people seem almost reluctant to talk. Perhaps it’s because they signed this document?”
“Precisely. And if you’ve read everything, you’ll see that we will silence those who talk.”
“Yes, but you don’t say how, exactly.” She put the paper back on his desk and folded her hands in her lap. “I’m unclear why such secrecy is necessary.”
He knelt down next to her, his eyes holding hers with a steady, pleading gaze. “While I can’t reveal our methods to you at this time, I’m hoping you can surely understand our position. You’re in need of assistance and we can help you. So will you be willing to put your signature right here on this line?” He tapped his finger on the specified area. Maintaining his stare, he handed her the pen.  
“What if I don’t sign? What if I just got up and left, right now? My parents are gone. You can’t stop me.” Her eyes remained fixed on his.
John swallowed hard. “I really don’t recommend you do that. You won’t get far, and if you don’t sign this form, then we’ll have other plans for you. And you don’t want that. Trust me on this.”
“It seems no matter how much I try coming up with ways to get out of this, I can’t seem to. Everyone keeps telling me the same thing as you. Don’t people ever say no, leave here when they feel like it, go start a new life for themselves?”
Returning the stare, John replied, “Most people actually like it here.”
Mistress Of The House
Her thoughts raced. Do I dare test him now? He didn’t seem to mind her touching his most private area, and had even sounded a little exasperated when she’d removed her hand. Anne’s cold, reluctant nature had not squelched his desire for a woman’s hand touching him in all the right places, allowing his body to enjoy a good, hard release.
What the hell? Enough stalling. Her hand crept slowly back down to his crotch, and this time, she threw all caution to the wind. Taking in a deep breath, she slid her hand slowly inside his pants, running her fingers over the soft pubic hair, until she’d grasped what she so desperately sought.
He let out a soft gasp, and lifted his hips a little, but said nothing. The sound from the crickets had reached full crescendo, and the light scent of lilacs perfumed the air. Thelma rested her cheek on his chest for just a moment, so she could hear the rapid beating of his heart. His breathing had grown a little faster. With eager fingers, she toyed with a plump tip on top of a stiff shaft. Thick pre-cum in his slit oozed its way out and over her fingertip. She pressed a little deeper into his soft flesh, but not so much as to cause pain. His hips shifted ever so slightly. With gliding movements, her hand ran up and down his full length. Under a blossoming cock rested a set of balls waiting for her to squeeze, which she did, gently. He let out a soft groan.
“Thelma.” Her name came out of his mouth as a light whisper, but an earnest one.
She remained silent, but her fingers spoke volumes to his flesh, commanding him in ways she was certain his wife had never ventured to attempt. Stopping again seemed a cruel thing to do to a man she cared so much about. They’d never been physically intimate until now, and whether or not he’d been with other women since his wife’s death, she couldn’t hazard a guess.
The cock between her fingers had reached its full size, and she knew by the sound of his breathing and the intermittent moans, he didn’t have much longer to go.
Master Of The House
Willie sensed the flush rising in his cheeks. Had his family suspected this would happen when they signed him in? Doubtful. Delores spoke the truth. He’d, of late, been stripped of his power—exhausted, and dominated by his family. Though they meant well, wanting only the best things for him, he had begun to feel smothered, longing for a sense of freedom. He stifled a chuckle. Perhaps this serendipitous turn of events might be his good fortune after all, with him gaining the upper hand in the end.
Delores studied his expression in depth and spoke again, a new gleam in her eye. “So, are you ready to begin?”
With an air of humility, Willie answered, “Yes, I’m more than ready to begin.”
“Excellent, we begin now.” Her eyes lit up and she held out the whip in front of her, grasping both ends in her hands as she walked back and forth in front of him once again. “Now, my dear Willie, there’s one subject I want to pursue and that is the one concerning women.” She returned, delivering a soft thrust of the whip against one of his thighs. “You have quite a muscular body, with strong thighs, rippling chest, and a chiseled, handsome face.”
Willie lowered his face in submission, but he was beaming inside. No one had ever commented on his appearance until now. But what she did next turned his cheeks scarlet. With one end of the whip, she caught up his flaccid shaft, lifting it up to admire its appearance.
“My, what a beautiful cock you have! I like the way it flows over that sweet, plump sac of yours.” She reached out and gave his flesh a firm squeeze, rolling the spongy contents between her fingers.
With gritted teeth, Willie silenced a groan. He’d never been touched this way before by anyone, and this woman was bold, with no reservations.
“Tell me, darling, do you ever fantasize about women? Do you have a special someone who makes your heart flutter and your cock swell?”
Her question took him by surprise, and he stood there, dumbfounded, almost losing himself in another dimension. Another swat from the whip jarred him back to reality. “Um … well …” He licked his lips, swallowing hard.
“Answer me!” Her tone of voice turned into a snarl. “Do you have a special love?”
Willie cleared his throat. “As a matter of fact, I do have someone special I think about from time to time.”
“I thought so.” She gave him a satisfied smile. “And what kinds of things do you think about?”
Startled by this question even more than the previous one, he had to think a moment. Just what did he think about when he thought of her, this young lady who’d attracted his attention for quite a while now? “I’m not sure. I’ve never given the matter much thought before.”
Delores threw back her head and laughed. “I find that hard to believe. Any man smitten with a woman always has plenty to think about when he’s alone without her.” She moved in closer and whispered in his ear, “Even more, any man smitten with a woman always finds plenty to do when he’s alone without her.”
He narrowed his eyes. “Plenty to do?” He knew blurting out his comment might irritate her, but he took the chance anyway.
Dance Of Desire
“You’re quite lovely when you dance.”
“Thank you.” She fidgeted, shifting her body in different positions, wiggling her feet up and down and side to side.
“If I didn’t know better, Serena, I’d say you seem distracted. Am I keeping you from something?” He smiled. Their conversation had disrupted her routine.
“No, I’m fine. Just trying to get comfortable.”
Not one to discourage a woman’s routine, especially when it involved potential nudity, he continued. “You’re lying.” He took the liberty of running a finger lightly over her breast, feeling the stiff nipple beneath her dress. “After the first time with your friend, have you continued doing what I’ve seen, even once you got here, finding ways to satisfy yourself when staff weren’t looking and everyone was asleep? I’m sure in some ways, the old man was an added bonus.” He sat up, giving her a pointed look. “Tell me, Serena. It’s okay if that’s true.”
“Maybe,” she said, her voice cold.
“Good for you, that you know what you need. That’s the beauty of my job. I, too, understand what your body wants.” He rubbed tenderly over her other nipple.
Serena sprang up, gathered her scarf, and started to leave, but Daren, possessed with quick reflexes, pulled her down, pinning her tight between his muscular thighs.
“Get off me,” she cried out, reaching to strike a blow at him.
He caught her arms, pressing them back down against the ground. Keeping calm and collected, he said in a soothing tone, “Please don’t run away from me. I’m not trying to take advantage of you. I can help you exercise your spiritual and sexual appetite. You’re a beautiful creature.”
“Please stop. You’re hurting me.” She panted, small sobs catching in her throat.
“Serena, listen to me.” Daren’s tone became more insistent. “Let’s share in carnal pleasures together. You don’t need to fondle ugly old fools to get what you want. If you sign an agreement with me, I can take your body to the heights of ecstasy. I’m well-trained in what I do.”
Without waiting for any protest, he placed a hot, passionate kiss on her lips, slipping in his tongue for good measure. She relaxed against his grip, all her pent-up energy slowly releasing as she sucked his tongue, accepting him as he explored her mouth. He sensed her straining against his thighs. His balls ached. It wouldn’t have taken much coaxing from her to slip between her legs and plunge his swollen cock inside a hot, wet channel. But he was bound by protocol. Until he had her signature, he couldn’t do much more.
Daren ended this kiss. “So what do you say?” With her arms free, she reached up and ran her fingers through his hair.
Taming Bad
Daria stood back from the doorway, gazing at the nude man on the bed. One of his hands had been cuffed to the iron headboard. The other remained free. Since he was in a room, staff had wasted no time stripping him of his street clothes, according to House protocol. The cuffed wrist was unusual. Admits and cuffs went hand in hand with attendants deciding when and if to use them. Finding her new charge already tethered held an allure, nonetheless.
His brawny chest displayed strong ripples in the soft bedroom light, and from what she surmised, his face showed extraordinarily good looks—chiseled jaw line, and what looked like a succulent set of lips. Stretched out, he appeared at least six feet in height, with muscular thighs and equally developed arms. No wonder he radiated sex appeal.
Putting the conversation with Dr. James behind her, Daria turned her attention fully on Newton. With eager fascination, she watched as he toyed with his cockhead, fingering the tip. Apparently his trek through the halls had put him in the mood, and he’d wasted no time in imitating many of the inhabitants. He took special delight in stretching out his shaft and releasing, shifting his hips in pleasure when the flesh sprang back into place. Daria licked her lips, her loins heating up. Time to learn more about this bad boy and what made him so bad that his dad wanted him fixed once and for all.
No matter how sensual the interactions between attendant and admit, there remained one rule: no falling in love. Unbridled lust and sex were permitted. Attendants fully treated and cared for their admits, with everything from stern discipline to tender nurturing to basic physical needs, while offering their body for the admit’s learning purposes. Both enjoyed equal satisfaction in the process, engaging in domination and submission roles.
She took a deep breath, strolled into the room, and stood by the bed, gazing down at Newton with lusty eyes. His beauty came through equally well up close. Short cropped sandy hair, taut skin, lips turned into a faint grin. His bright gray eyes held a sullen irreverence, a look that burned through her when he turned his face. A paradox of hot lust mingled with a sting of uneasiness crept slowly through her body.
“Hi, Newton. I’m Daria. I’ll be your attendant during your stay here.”
“My attendant?” His eyes roamed over her. “The whole time I’m here?” He chuckled, and went back to playing with his cock. “Since everybody else seems to be going at it, I thought what the hell. Might as well have fun too. What is this place? Some kind of goddamned twisted hotel, where men run around half-dressed and the gals priss around in tight, short dresses up to their asses?”
“It’s dress protocol for The House. Men wear nothing but black trousers, and the ladies wear these dresses. You’ll soon see why.”

#ReleaseBlitz ~ Good Girl vs Bad Boy by Jessie Evans ~ @GiveMeBooksBlog @JessieDEvans #Giveaway #Rafflecopter “I’m going to own every inch of you tonight…”

Title: Good Girl vs. Bad Boy
Series: Brody Brothers #1
Author: Jessie Evans
Genre: Sexy Romantic Comedy
 Release Date: November 12, 2015
Blurb
Let the battle of the sexes begin… He’s hot, wild, unpredictable, untamable, and her best friend’s older brother.Colton Brody is everything a good girl like Phoebe Page should avoid. But since her sister Kelly’s death, Phoebe isn’t as worried about being good as she used to be. She wants to live big with no regrets, the way Kelly did, and she intends to start with having a top secret, super steamy, no-strings-attached holiday fling with the man she’s crushed on her entire life.

What could go wrong?

Except everything?

Wounded in action and discharged without a chance to prove himself, all Colton cares about is getting back into the Marine Corps where he belongs. He will not get sucked into small town drama, will not take that promotion at the firehouse, and certainly won’t fall in love with his little sister’s best friend. He’s down for friends-with-benefits, nothing more, and plans to leave town long before quirky, bossy, cute-as-a-button Phoebe can get under his skin.

He is in control.

At least until a certain sexy brunette turns his world upside down.

It isn’t long before Colton finds himself buying flowers, talking feelings, and wishing Phoebe wanted more than another night of hot, no-holds-barred sex. Because when he’s with Phoebe even hot and dirty feels like making love.

Now Colton will have to decide what’s worth fighting for—the dreams a plane crash stole from him or the dream he’s holding in his arms. 

WARNING: Good Girl vs. Bad Boy contains a mix of heart-warming romance, quirky characters, laugh out loud moments, and blisteringly hot banging. If you don’t like hot sex, laughter, mentions of humping unicorns, turkey bowling, off-beat town rituals, or graphic descriptions of artisanal pancakes, steer clear.
