Jonathan – 3 months ago

The drive home is dark and quiet and all I can think about is Madison and the look on her face tonight. It hurt to see her face that way. Was it pain, distrust, confusion? I couldn’t put my finger on it, but something went awry.

This day went all wrong. Nothing went as planned. The surprise meeting with my investor, not seeing Madison like I normally do, her being out with friends. Even my anger I felt when she wasn’t at work surprised me. Maybe I need to call and talk to Anthony. I need a clear head to think this through.

When I arrived home, I changed my clothes into more comfortable clothes, and sat on the couch with my glass of whiskey. I needed to go over the night again and try to see where Madison’s head might be.

For some reason, Madison has become important to me. She is young and fresh, untouched and yet she has no idea of her potential. My cock reacts to her smile, to her laugh, to her eyes when she looks at me. I can’t begin to imagine the many ways I can bring her pleasure. Trust comes first.

Her first step tonight was letting me taste her. She seemed to like it. I want to do that more often when she has pleased me. Speaking of, did I scare her when I put my cock in her mouth? Jeezz man, that was a dick move. She wasn’t ready for that.

Swirling my drink around in the glass, all I can think of is her pink pussy and how she tasted. I want more. I need more. Closing my eyes, I can smell her again. Taste her again. I can’t get enough. I need to do this right. I can’t lose another sub. Tomorrow I will call Anthony and talk things over with him.

Madison – 3 months ago

 

Tuesday seemed like such a long day. Madi was looking forward to tomorrow. She knew she’d have more material for her dreams after tomorrow. Her boss had been gone all week, but he never missed a Wednesday. As Madi walked to the bus stop, she started the fantasy in her head.

Walking in through the front door of her apartment, she dropped her purse and bag in the chair at the table and decided to take a long hot bath before she made dinner. She walked into the bathroom and started the water, added some Epson’s salts and started to undress.

As she set her foot in the tub, she waited a minute to let her body adjust to the temperature of the water. Then her whole body slowly melted down in the tub. “Oh, this feels so good. Just what I needed,” she sighed. The warm water sent shivers up her spine. After closing her eyes, she saw him. All of him.

He walked through the bathroom door, “oh baby you are so sexy in that tub full of bubbles.” He slowly undressed, as if he was doing it for her benefit. His underwear was the last thing he removed and when he did, she gasped at the huge cock that sprung out of his underwear. She had never really seen it, just always felt it. She knew it was huge, it sure filled her up. But oh, my, was it gorgeous.

“You have a greedy look in those eyes” he said as he smiled. Then he grabbed his cock and slowly rubbed it with his own hand, for her entertainment. It was so hard. She wanted to touch it, taste it. Worship it.

Madi watched him walk over to the tub and stop in front of her. His cock was at the perfect level and she wanted to suck it.

“Take it in your mouth sweetheart. Suck it.” And he took a step closer while Madi reached out for it. Taking it in her hand, her tongue licked the tip to take the pre-cum off. Then she licked the head and let her tongue go down the shaft. He responded to her tongue with quite a few moans, letting her know he liked it. Using her hand to rub the base of his cock, her mouth was getting used to the size and thickness. She put her mouth around the head, bobbing in and out a few times. Coming back to the tip she opened wider and took more in, working to gradually take it all in. Gagging a bit, she looked up at him and saw a smirk on his face. She continued to suck him. All the way in. He let his head fall back and he groaned, “holy fuck. Your mouth is so good.” After a few more sucks, he pulled out and walked closer to join her in the tub.

“Lean forward,” he said, so she moved up letting him get in the tub behind her. Wrapping his arms around Madi, he lifted her legs over his and rested them on the side of the tub. He then picked her up and set her on top of him. He wasn’t very gentle when he placed her on top of him. He penetrated her rather fast and forceful. “Agh” she gasped, not expecting that to happen.

Leaning into her ear, he whispered, “just relax, you might enjoy this too.”

With her legs over the side of the tub, her back to his front, he started to rub her pussy. She was so turned on and he could tell. His other hand found her left nipple and he started to roll it between his fingers. When he pinched her nipple, she’d make a little noise which he seemed to enjoy hearing. Her bud was so tight.

Slowly moving in and out of her, she let her head fall back on his shoulders. “That’s it baby, enjoy the feeling of my cock inside of you.”

He found her clit and started to pinch it while still pinching her nipples. The sensations were driving her crazy. This man was talented and seemed to know all the right places to touch her. But of course her body was overly sensitive.

She spread her legs wider while he rubbed. She started to move with his movements. She wanted more. So much more. Maybe she was a greedy girl. Feelings inside were building up and she wasn’t sure how much longer she could go. “Oh, this is so good,” she said in a nice throaty voice.

Suddenly, he stopped moving and stopped rubbing. Her eyes opened, she grabbed the side of the tub and sat up panting. “What? What happened? Why did you stop?”

All movement completely stopped, and her body was crying for it to continue. She was so close.

“I want you to rub yourself while I fuck you,” he said.

Okay, she could do that. She leaned back against his chest again. Her hand slid to her pussy, found her lips and then her hard clit. Oh, she needed this release. She started rubbing. He started moving again but this time harder, with more force. He was holding her on him by her hips as he rammed his cock into her. Water was splashing out of the tub.

Her eyes closed, she wanted this feeling to take over her, to take her, she wanted to go with him, wanted him to make her go there, but he stopped giving her pleasure. She could finish it though.

Almost there…she felt it coming. His normal grunting was starting. “Oh fuck, this feels good. Keep rubbing that pussy for me.”

She did as she was told, eyes still closed, head back on his shoulder again, she was almost there. “oh, I’m coming,” she panted. His growls started to get louder as she started to come. “Oh my god, oh my god,” and her tight pussy came all over his cock.

“Damn, you squeeze my cock so tight when you come,” he said.

She needed to catch her breath and enjoy the moment. She didn’t want to come down from this emotional ride. It was a damn good one too. She laid there in the tub.

When she finally opened her eyes, she realized she was alone. There was no one else in the tub. No one behind her. Just her. Yet the floor had water on it, and her legs were over the side. She let the side of the tub hold her up. A deep sigh made her realize the truth.

Making A Come Back

Time to get back to this blog…

So it’s been almost a year now since I last posted in here. I moved, enrolled my kids in new schools and life has just kept rolling. All the things you do to a new house, a hurricane when you have 2 houses to take care of, a new roof on one of those houses and painting. OMG painting. Trying to make the house “ours” has been a lot of work.

But I am back. Because I have started jotting down some thoughts. Random scenes. Could they turn into short stories? Yes. A book? Who knows? But for now I am going to post them here. Maybe someday I will find time to start promoting the books I love to read here again too.

Your feedback is welcome, just please be honest and kind.

#BlogTour #Reservations by @KindleAlexander #Romance #New @EJBookPromos #M/M

Title: Reservations
Author: Kindle Alexander
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: October 30, 2017

 

 

Amazon Review – ““Reservations” by Kindle Alexander is a rare gem in the world of M/M Romance, because it is genuinely compelling story telling!”

Amazon Review – “Thane & Levi stole my heart!!”

Amazon Review – “Thane and Levi!! Simply amazing”

Amazon Review – “A beautifully written love story that is guaranteed to melt you heart!”

 

Wildly successful entrepreneur, Thane Walker is stubbornly set in his ways. Adamantly resistant to the shackles of commitment, he’s seen enough unhappy endings to learn the best way to play is by keeping his men on the payroll. 

Levi Silva’s dream of graduating from one of the country’s top medical schools is in his grasp, until news from home changes everything. Now, he’s raising his two teenage brothers and trying to keep everyone’s head above water, emotionally and financially. 

When Levi’s new job puts him in Thane’s path, their chemistry explodes, but their fear of being involved in relationships keeps them apart. Unfortunately, despite the intense desire drawing them together, neither man can move forward until they get past their own…Reservations.
Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It’s always a surprise to see what’s coming next!

I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it’s true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women’s hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal… I don’t want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I’m going to tell you about Kindle.

I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.

That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.

Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.

Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It’s its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her.

About the Author

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Time to heal.

Somehow, though, he never found the enthusiasm. Or maybe that was just an excuse. Another way of punishing himself for walking away from the woman he loved in favor of the woman he’d owed.

And since he’d never have either of them again, he needed to kick his own ass, pick up the pieces of his life, and start building something real. After all, there wasn’t a tech gadget he couldn’t design, build, or repair. So why was he so clueless when it came to his own damn life?

It was time, and it would be easy. Painless even, because God knew Evie embodied everything he admired in a woman. Strength. Intelligence. Ambition. Humor. Beauty. She was as desirable as Lyle had promised and obviously enthusiastic.

In other words, he was all out of excuses.

He stood up, intending to tell her to lead the way. But the words that came out of his mouth shocked them both. “I’m sorry, Evie,” he said. “You’ve been wonderful, but I have an early meeting, and I should probably get home.”

“Oh.” He’d surprised her as she was rising, and now she teetered awkwardly on her heels, as if his unexpected words would physically topple her.

He reached out a hand to steady her, and for the briefest moment, he considered pulling her close and fighting his way past his hesitation. She was everything he should want in a woman—with the unfortunately insurmountable problem that she wasn’t what he wanted at all. Or, rather, she wasn’t who he wanted.

Goddamn him.

Goddamn his stupid, unrealistic fantasies.

And while he was at it, goddamn Kiki, too.

He was being an idiot and unfair, and he knew it. An idiot, because he’d made his choice to walk away from Kiki long ago, and he knew damn well that he’d shattered her in the process. Even if he could have seen his way clear to look her up after all these years, he’d forfeited his right to come crawling back.

Unfair, because not ten minutes ago he’d been ready to take the plunge with Evie, and yet here he was, dodging and shifting like a damn coward, trying to swim up out of the deep black ocean of loss and pain. A familiar pain that wrapped him like a blanket, so cloying it was almost comfortable. And he knew damn well that there was only one way to fight it—he needed to take the girl to her room and try to fuck the darkness out of him.

The way he’d done with countless other women.

The way that never worked like it should. That only dulled the sharp edges of his pain, but added no light to the darkness.

That wasn’t what he wanted. Not anymore. One of the reasons he’d moved to Austin was to heal, after all. To heal, and to break bad habits.

Still, it was tempting, and it took more strength than he expected to shake his head again and say very gently, “I really am sorry. I’m not … ready.” She’d been polite enough not to mention the tragedy in his past, but he was certain that Lyle must have at least told her that he’d lost his wife and daughter. Hopefully, that softened the blow of rejection.

She’d regained her footing, and now she stepped back, her forehead creased as her eyes flicked over him, expertly assessing him as she would a witness. “It’s been almost nine years, I’m told.” The sharp edge of her voice sliced his heart. So much for softening the blow. “If you don’t get ready soon, I can’t help but think you’re going to end up sad and alone.”

With a thin, sympathetic smile, she turned and walked away, leaving him to watch her go and wonder at her perceptiveness. Because she was right.

He was going to end up sad and alone.

Hell, he already was.

Excerpt:

She hurried down the hall as if she’d just dodged three painful minutes in my company.

I shook it off. What was the difference? What was I trying to do here? Get my ass fired? Get her fired? There were dozens of women I could take to bed and absolutely no reason to focus on the one who could make my life and my job miserable.

But that body. The way she walked. The swing of her black hair across her back.

A female voice came from behind me. “There are rumors about that one.”

It was Marie Siska. Founding partner at Siska + Welton. She was in her early fifties and had her brown hair up in a tidy twist. She was a former litigator who had argued in front of the Ninth and had a way of knowing the intricacies of every case we handled.

“What kind of rumors?”

“The unsubstantiated kind.”

She invited me into my own office and closed the door behind us. I sat in front of my own desk, in one of the two guest chairs.

Marie’s lavender pants suit was custom made and she never sat down. She put her hands on the back of the second guest chair, pulling herself up a little as if she wanted to look taller.

“Barney and I have made a decision about you.”

I tried to look completely calm, but there was a pretty good chance my face froze over in the attempt.

“Let’s hear it.”

“Alexander Burke and Neuronet are your catch. If you go, he goes with you. That’s a plus in the senior partner column.”

I’d played MMPORGs with Burke way back in the day. All the zombie shooting had paid off. He was also a great guy and a badass gamer.

“But we’re a recent contract,” she continued. “And it’s short term. He can cut us loose any time for another outside contractor or to keep it all in-house. It’s fine. It’s part of the business, but a long-term retainer could be big for us. One third of future billing.”

“And my name would be one third of the ones on the letterhead.”

She did something she never did. She sat down in front of me. “I’ve wanted to be a lawyer ever since I saw a Senate debate on C-SPAN. We’re a small, classy operation with a stellar reputation. Classy and stellar were the goal, but small wasn’t. We should be litigating in front of the Supreme Court, and the reason we’re not is because we have to scratch and claw every quarter. We can’t take the chances we need to. I have ten or fifteen more years of active participation in this business before I can’t keep up, and it’s coming at me fast. We’ve tried to grow and it’s never stuck. This is our chance to turn this firm into what I dreamed about when I was ten. You are our chance.”

“No pressure.”

 

My Review:

Let me first say that if you have NEVER read a book by CD Reiss, then you are in for a nice treat. I was reading a tweet on Twitter I think it was, by another favorite author of mine who mentioned she just finished the Marriage Games series and was totally in love with the books. So I knew if SHE thought they were good, I would like them too. So let me see who this new author was and read her books. I did and loved the Marriages Games books and became a new fan. So when I had the chance to read and review this book I was tickled to have the honor.
So then let me paint the picture for you before reading the review…enjoying the book, reading, coming close to the end and BAM it’s over! I was shocked, stunned and looked at my dog and screamed “NO! No way it’s over. Not like that!!!”
And now the review:
How dare you stop the book there! No! Not there. I need more Roman and Raven!!!! More. Please!!!!

I can’t believe the book ended like that. All along I waited for the shoe to fall, for the mask to come off. I wasn’t sure I trusted Roman. I need more of this story. I’m so hooked it is pitifully sad. I love these two characters. So mysterious yet deliciously romantic. The bathroom scene was just too hot. The sparks between them will make your heart beat faster. I want more romance with Raven and Roman. Gah! Sexy as hell, hot as sin and lordy I need some ice!

The more I read C.D. Reiss the more I fall in love with her characters that are so unique and mysterious you just can’t help but love them. You are pulled into the story and invest yourself in the plot only to be pleasantly surprised by most endings in her stories. I should know this right? She still surprises me after each story. Haven’t met a character I didn’t like, even the darkest ones I’ve read from her. She brings the characters alive and makes you WANT to read more. Love her books!

About CD Reiss:

C.D. Reiss is a USA Today bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up, she’s at the well, hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere, but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

Critics have dubbed the books “poetic,” “literary,” and “hauntingly atmospheric,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she’s some sort of braggart who’s too good to chop a cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

About CD Reiss:

C.D. Reiss is a USA Today bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up, she’s at the well, hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere, but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

Critics have dubbed the books “poetic,” “literary,” and “hauntingly atmospheric,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she’s some sort of braggart who’s too good to chop a cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

From #1 NYT Bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a hot & hilarious new standalone romantic comedy…

Women often say a good man is hard to find. And a hard man is even better.

That’s why I’m quite a catch– good, hard, loaded, and wait for it…I’m ready to settle down too. But the woman I want to pitch my tent with lives clear across the country. Neither of us wants to get lost in those woods. All I have to do is resist her for the week she’s in town.

I try. I swear I try. But yeah, that doesn’t work out.

And after one fantastic night with my good friend Mia, I’m ready to give her years of nights under the stars. What’s a few thousand miles when love’s involved? But there’s a hitch in my plans — she just hired my adventure tour company. If there’s one thing I’m committed to, it’s running a squeaky clean business. Number one on my list of iron-clad rules?

Don’t screw your customers.

But what’s a guy to do when she’s so hard to resist? How hard can it be to keep our hands off each other for a quick group tour down the hills and over the trails? I’m about to find out, and I have a feeling I’m going to need a new badge of honor because things are about to get very hard in the woods.

You can find this sexy standalone romantic comedy available across all retailers now!

EXCERPT:

I let go of her hand and thread my fingers through her hair. “Get on me.”

 

Then I grab her hips and move her so she’s straddling my lap. She gasps, a sexy noise that turns into a moan as she sinks down on my hard-on.

 

I hiss because it feels so fucking good.

 

“I wanted to come over the other night. After dinner. After the elevator,” she blurts out.

 

“Yeah?”

 

She nods. “Dinner ran late, but I couldn’t stop thinking about you.”

 

“What were you thinking?”

 

“That we didn’t get to kiss, and I wanted to so badly.”

 

“I can fix that problem right now.”

 

I take her face in my hands and bring her to me. Then the world spirals away as I kiss Mia Summers for the very first time.

 

It’s extraordinary. Her lips brush against mine, and she wastes no time. She slides closer, rubbing on my dick as she presses her chest to me. It’s as if she’s climbing me, and God, how I want this. How I want her like this.

 

I thread my fingers through her hair, pulling her closer, kissing her deeper. Tasting her. Her mouth is soft and sweet, and she makes these little sounds—whimpers, sighs, gasps—that make me nearly lose my mind.

 

I’m kissing Mia. I’ve been crazy for her for so damn long, and she’s on my lap, rubbing against my erection, kissing me as if her every last breath depends on it. Her tongue tangles with mine, and in a hot second, the kiss become furious. Greedy. Like two people who are mad about each other. I curl my hands around her head, wanting to get as close as I can, but she bats them away.

 

I break contact for a moment and raise a questioning eyebrow.

 

“My turn.” She lifts her hands, cups my cheeks, and then she strokes my jaw. Reverently. Hungrily. And I know what she’s doing. She’s feeling my beard. She’s touching my stubbled jaw with eager fingers, as if she’s wanted to get her hands on me for as long as I’ve wanted to touch her.

 

I don’t stop her. I drop my hands to her hips, and I guide her along, moving her so she grinds against my cock, and she’s gasping and murmuring as she kisses me.

 

We consume each other. We are ravenous. My brain turns to static, firing pleasure signal after pleasure signal to every nerve in my body. I want to live in this moment for the rest of the night. I don’t ever want to forget how good it feels not only to kiss her, but to be kissed by her.

 

She rocks harder, goes faster, murmurs louder, then she separates and looks at me with desperate eyes. “You have no idea.”

 

I shake my head. “I do. I have every idea.”

 

REVIEW:

What a cute story about Patrick and Mia and how they got together. A little baggage, a whole lot of mountains and streams between them but they found the right path to make it all work.

I loved how open and honest Patrick was. I guess his outdoorsy, nature boy character was perfect for him. He’s a very simple, tell it like it is, enjoys life kind of guy. Fits his life’s passion too. He knows what he wants and he goes after it in a carefully respectful way.

Mia is somewhat similar to Patrick’s character but you have to get to know her to realize that. She loves animals and that bonds her to Zeus, Patrick’s cat. The keeper of secrets. Mia is all alone on one side of the country while her family is on the other. She finds a way to make her life work, her heart happy and secure her future.

I love that this is written in the male POV, Patrick’s. Lauren writes the male voice so well and mixes it with male humor at times too. Patrick is a dream man who is simple and uncomplicated. He goes after what he wants. Wonderful character. Great read, beautiful story of love and passion and jackrabbits and kangaroos.
