Review – Rescuing Wendy

Rescuing Wendy; Delta Force Heroes (Series)
by Susan Stoker (Author)

This review is from: April 30, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

Another win in the Delta Force Heroes series! Although this is every bit a Susan Stoker novel, Rescuing Wendy is different from the other books I’ve read so far, which is a good thing in keeping her audience entertained, yet still coming back for that same comfort feel. There are small follow ups on past Deltas, but if you haven’t read the other books you will be able to jump right into this one and pick up the plot with no problem. (Although, once you pick up one Stoker novel you will become addicted and want to catch up and everyone else.)

Wendy and Blade, or Aspen as Wendy prefers to call him by his given name, met when she cold called him asking if he would like to buy life insurance. Typically this is not the way you would meet the love of your life, but that is the genius of Stoker’s writing.

Wendy was working in a call center, a job she hated, but alas there she was making cold calls to people who hung up on her, were most times rude, made lewd comments, you name it she’s heard it, but on one night in particular she happened to call Blade and he did none of the above. He was kind and they found a connection. He asked if they could talk again. Needing a kind voice on nights when Wendy needed to hear it she broke company policy and would dial his number and ask if he wanted to buy whatever she happened to be selling that evening. A bond formed and months later they were still talking.

The last Delta among his buddies to be in a relationship, Blade sometimes felt alone. He could spend all day surrounded by his buddies but still feel lonely. That was until he began to talk to Wendy. He didn’t know why her voice soothed him or why talking about their days quenched the lonely thirst he’d been feeling, but he knew he had to have more. When he found out she lived not far from him he knew it was destiny and that he had to meet her in person. He wanted more from just their nightly chats. He wanted more from the one person who made him happy. He wanted Wendy.

Wendy hadn’t let anyone into her life for good reason. Raising her younger brother alone had taken top priority. Somehow, Blade made her forget and that’s dangerous. As much as she would love to have a life with the perfect man and forget about her past, somethings just aren’t possible. She has a reason to keep a part of herself locked away, which has nothing to do with Blade, but her secret creates distrust and without trust it’s hard to build a future.

Blade can tell Wendy is hiding something and she won’t open up enough to tell him what that is. He wants to spend the rest of his life with her, but she makes that near impossible when she isn’t honest with him. Can Blade rescue Wendy from herself before it’s too late?

AUTHOR BIO

Malorie first started reading romance books when she was twelve years old.

Her mother handed her a copy of Nora Robert’s Midnight Bayou and with resignation said, “Here you’ll love it, just skip the sex scenes.”

It was the only time she ever got to rebel as a kid, because after that day she spent her entire adolescence (and a lot of her adulthood for that matter) sitting inside devouring every romance book ever written.

AUTHOR BIO

USA Today Bestselling Author, NANA MALONE’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.

With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble best seller lists as well as the iTunes Breakout Books list and most notably the USA Today Bestseller list.

Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances for characters that won’t leave her alone. And if she’s not working or hiding in the closet reading, she’s acting out scenes for her husband, daughter and puppy in sunny San Diego.

New Release – Seducing Kaden

SBPR-RB-BANNER.jpg

Seducing Kaden, an all-new taboo romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is LIVE!

SeducingKadenFinal-FJM_Kindle_1800x2700.jpg

Kaden

The woman I love will never be mine because she already belongs to another.

I’ve tried everything to forget her, but it’s impossible when she occupies a starring role in my dreams. My eyes are glued to her shapely curves whenever I see her around campus, and it doesn’t help that she looks as miserable as I feel.

I wonder if she misses me as much as I miss her.

Short of putting a bullet through the skull of that gangster she’s married to, I’m stuck in a hellhole of my own making.

Until fate intervenes, setting us on a collision course we can’t avoid.

Evelina

When I was a little girl, I dreamed of falling in love. The all-consuming sweep-you-off-your-feet kind of love I swooned over in movies.

It didn’t take long for that fairytale notion to come crashing down around me. Now I’m trapped in a marriage I despise with no way out.

The only light in the dark is Kaden Kennedy—the one true love of my life. He doesn’t know he is, because I’m forced to love him from afar, condemned to toss and turn at night, crying over everything I want and all I can never have.

Seeing him day in, day out, destroys me, but there’s no other choice; I had to push him away to keep him safe.

Because if my husband ever finds out I’m in love with another man, I won’t be the only one in danger.

While you don’t need to read the earlier books in this series to enjoy Seducing Kaden, it is highly recommended. This book is a contemporary new adult romance, and it is only suitable for readers aged eighteen and older due to mature content, sexual situations, and language.

This story includes details of an extramarital affair, so if you don’t like cheating or controversial storylines, then this book isn’t for you.

New Release – Revenge in the Highlands

Revenge in the Highlands by Brandy Golden

Gallagher was born to rule Glencairn but a slip of a girl stands in his way…

Release Date: April 26, 2018

 

Fiercely embittered from being used by men as a pawn in their schemes, Eileen is not happy to see her brother return. Nor is she happy to see the son of the laird she married, bore a son too, and whose lands and titles she inherited for her own son, arrive with him. Eileen is tough on the outside, but harbors a terrible secret within; a secret of pain, betrayal and a fierce desire for revenge.

Gallagher Glencairn returns with Morgan MacAlister and both men mean to reclaim their heritage. But Morgan’s sister, a beautiful golden-haired girl with haunted eyes, now rules his clan. Gallagher gives Eileen two choices, she can either wed him or he’ll wage war against her and take it. Gallagher was born to rule Glencairn and rule it he will.

Publisher’s Note: Old-fashioned, loving discipline plays a part in this love story. If that offends you, please do not read.

Much to her surprise, Eileen didn’t find Gallagher’s touch offensive, yet her fear would not let her enjoy his kiss. It might lead to other things, things she would never allow to happen again. Not if she had a choice in the matter.

When he lifted his head and looked down at her, Eileen didn’t turn away. She traitorously found herself wondering what it would be like to stay married to this man. To try to have a normal life…maybe even have more children. She surprised herself with her errant thoughts. She’d only known Gallagher a brief time and he wasn’t interested in her, only his inheritance. Still, his eyes mesmerized her in the moonlight, their depths dark and mysterious. yet filled at that moment with kindness.

And with something else.

She could tell he wanted her and she feared that more than anything. She had no intention of allowing her body to be used once again.

“Was that so bad?” came the soft query.

She licked her lips, formulating a reply. She was completely unaware that this simple gesture fueled Gallagher’s already kindled desires and made him want to crush her to him, to take that teasing pink tongue into his own mouth. “I’ll not be sharing your blanket with ye if that’s what ye mean.”

Gallagher reluctantly put a hobble on his desires. “Will ye tell me about it, Eileen?”

“Tell ye about what?”

“About the man that put this fear of lovemaking into your heart and body. After all, we are married. Why shouldn’t we enjoy each other for as long as it lasts?”

His silvery eyes glinted down at her and Eileen’s patience broke. What was it with these men? “And why don’t ye go straight to Hell,” she snapped. “Is that all ye men think about? Your pleasure…and your sons?”

I’m a sweet romance writer with a bit of the hot and spicy thrown in. I love creating wonderful stories that the reader can immerse themselves in and leave the real world behind for awhile. I especially love strong alpha males who aren’t afraid to take their girl in hand if she needs it. I live in the midwestern United States with my family and I really love cowboy stories especially. However, I’ll write about anything that comes to mind. The imagination is endless and you never know when a sudden idea will pop up that you just have to write about. If you are enjoying the Revenge series so far, please feel free to leave a review, I would love it.

Oh, and just so you know, these books all stand alone. Each book is a complete love story but some of the characters overflow into each other. But there are no cliffhangers to leave you dangling in the wind like a soap opera! I’m working on the third one right now and it should be along sometime this year.

Thank you!

New Release – Without Apology

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Without Apology
Series: The Without Series #1
Author: Aubrey Bondurant
Genre: Contemporary Adult Romance
Release Date: April 29, 2018

BLURB

He’s neat, always on time, and a professed workaholic. I’m messy, always running late, and looking for more from life than just my job.

Yet our mutual attraction is undeniable.

The last thing I expected after our first date was to have Simon show up at my office. The charming and funny guy I’d met was now gone, replaced by the cold and calculating man in an impeccable suit. While my professional future is now in his hands, I can’t stop thinking about how his hands would feel on my body.

Whatever had started between us can’t possibly happen now, but that’s easier said than done. Because the more I try not to think of his sexy smirk or
delicious accent, the harder it is to stay away. And if our forbidden office kiss is any indication, his resolve is slipping too.

I’ve sworn I’d never fall for a man who puts his job first.
Too bad my heart isn’t listening.

***Without Apology is for mature audiences due to steamy bedroom scenes that are in no way contained to just the bedroom.***

EXCERPT 

As I unloaded my full carry basket onto the belt, I couldn’t help noticing the man in front me who was wearing a charcoal gray suit. He was attractive, but what instantly perked up my ears was his British accent. That wasn’t something one often heard in this suburban town outside of Dallas, Texas.
He was talking to the elderly cashier, who I knew as Laverne, about lacking the identification necessary to buy the bottle of champagne she was holding in her hand.
“You have my word I’m over the legal drinking age, whatever that may be here in Texas.”
Laverne adjusted her thick glasses and shook her head. “Unless you have some sort of identification proving it, honey, I can’t sell it to you.”
He searched the inside pocket of his suit. “Unfortunately, my passport is back in my hotel room. Is there any chance you could give me the bottle now, and I could return tomorrow with my ID?”
Nice try, I thought, but then realized the words had inadvertently slipped out loud. When his ice-blue eyes focused on me, my body immediately responded. Because the eyes were only part of what made up his gorgeous face, now turned in my direction.
Damn, David Gandy had nothing on his younger version, for sure. The man’s mouth turned up in a slight smile towards me before he sighed at Laverne, seemingly recognizing that her cataracts and sour expression made any use of his charms a wasted effort.
Taking pity, I stepped up. “Hey, Laverne, how about I pay for the bottle? I have my ID if you need it.”
She hesitated and then glared when Brexy, my new mingled word for British and sexy, pulled out his wallet, probably to front me the money.
“You keep your wallet and your cash where it is, honey. What you two do in private ain’t none of my business, but don’t be doing it in front of me. Rules are rules.”
Brexy and I exchanged arched brows at Laverne’s suggestive way of putting it, but he stowed his wallet and said, “Understood. I promise to, uh, finish this transaction in private.”
Now he was smirking. The expression suited his handsome features very well. I had to bite my lip to keep from laughing out loud.
“Good.”
As Laverne scanned my items, she started chatting. “Making snickerdoodles with the girls tonight?” She directed the question towards me.
“Yes. Sure am.” I noticed the man’s gaze flick over to my left hand. Subtle he was not. Then again, neither was I. “My three nieces,” I offered, feeling like an idiot for needing to clarify that point.
“You don’t need her identification, I take it?” he inquired, making room for me to slide my credit card at the terminal in front of us.
Laverne tsked “I’ve known Peyton here for nearly the twenty-nine years she’s been on this earth, so I’m quite aware of her age without needing proper identification.” She handed me the receipt after bagging everything and added, “She’s also quite single.”
And with that, she was moving on to the next customer.
I shook my head over her use of the word ‘quite’ in front of single. Because ‘single’ wasn’t enough, she had to add the word ‘quite,’ making it sound as if I couldn’t possibly be more single.
Small towns. Gotta love ‘em.

Doppelbanger (Standalone)
by Heather M. Orgeron (Author)

This review is from: April 28, 2018 By Kay Daniels  (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

Jeffrey is a single father raising two girls on his own ever since his wife passed away. Doing the best he can, his main goal is to not mess his children up, or at least any worse than losing their mother already has. Meeting Gina and her nephews while on a cruise was probably the worst thing he ever could have done. Not only is one of her nephews making out with his teenage daughter, his youngest daughter says she’s going to marry the savage five year old. Oh no, not on his watch. His daughters are going to live with him until they are at least thirty. And when he meets Gina, he begins to understand why the boys are so out of control, she barely looks over age herself, and she’s a sex therapist to boot! Nope, nope, nope. No matter how attractive Jeffrey finds the little sprite, he refuses to give in to his urges. Even when she prescribes him all the orgasms he can handle on a prescription note no less.

Gina has a certain type of man she sleeps with. She doesn’t date because she doesn’t do relationships, but she does like sex. When she meets Jeffrey while on the cruise, she can’t explain why she’s pulled to him because he does not fit into her type at all, but when she gets an itch, she needs to scratch it. She never expected to feel the pull over and over again, but she also wasn’t one to deny scratching her itch. When she begins to feel things for the man who fell out of her doppelbanger zone she doesn’t understand how to back out of a non-relationship when she technically isn’t in one, but sort of is. Maybe it’s just gas and whatever she’s feeling will go away. Maybe she just needs to get back out there again and go back to her regular dopplebanger diet, but what happens when all you want is a cranky, single dad who doesn’t seem to want you back?

LOL funny! Dopplebanger contained so many comical moments I did begin to wonder if they really happened either to the author or to someone she knew. Practically every moment on the page that the heroines spent with children, and there were numerous pages that contained these very moments, were riddled with adorable laughter. The little ones especially would have made me want to hide under a rock with the “no filter” stuff that pops out of their mouths, but since they are not my children it is literally the funniest stuff to read, ever.

The laughs don’t stop there. Jeffrey is comical in his overly protective “dad” ways, even in the moments he spends with Gina. Their instant dislike for each other, yet hot chemistry making for a hate-love relationship that will singe the pages is sneaky in the way Heather Orgeron suddenly gives us feelings for two people who shouldn’t have feelings for each other. That was never part of the plan. Too bad things don’t always go according to plan.

Dopplebanger is a fun, LOL read filled with a lot of heart.

Four years of celibacy have turned Hunter Miles into a predator—a dangerous man. He’s horny. Hard. And coming home from college, he never expected to find Bailey Jones so tempting.
It’s an instant infatuation.

She’s the one woman he shouldn’t want—his little sister’s best friend. The last time he saw her she was a knobby-kneed little girl, but what welcomed him home was all woman—her decadent curves and a flirtatious smile tossed at him each time they are within arm’s reach.

She’s tempting.

Pushing.

Offering up her body to a man hanging by a very thin thread.
Fuck the consequences. He wanted her, and she was going to be in his bed by the end of the week.

EXCERPT 

“Why?” It came out harsher than I intended, and immediately I felt bad. At once, my body lost some of its rigidness.
Bailey fidgeted, swallowing hard, her hands going to the edge of her tank top and scrunching the material—twisting it in her tiny hands while one foot tapped the hardwood beneath her.
She’d changed, and to be honest, I didn’t know which outfit was more of a danger to my mental stability. My cock was hard at the sight of her in this simple and sweet sleep set. Wept at the taunting way the material highlighted every curve I hungered to taste.
It wasn’t anything risqué or made to be provocative, and that’s what made it sexy.
Shorts—soft, and in a light pink cotton with a matching top. The fabric molded onto her curves like a second layer of flesh in the most delicious way.
“Why what?” she whispered, bringing me out of my perusal of her lithe form.
Her evasive answer wouldn’t do, and I took in a deep breath. I decided to change my approach. “Why does she think you kissed him, baby girl?” I asked again, tone much softer. The subtle hint of huskiness caused her breath to catch. For her pupils to dilate a tiny bit. “Answer me, little B. Why does she insist on you being his?”
And while her reaction to my presence placated me, it took everything within me to not spit that out, dripping in the acid that churned in my gut. Just the thought of her being with anyone was pushing against the invisible thread that held my sanity.
Bailey’s green orbs narrowed. She tried and failed to look offended by my question. However, at the corner of her plump lips was a small hint of a smile. “That’s none of your business, Hunter.”
“Defiance isn’t in your best interest, Bailey,” I countered, taking in the small shiver that rushed up her spine. “Everything that has to do with you is my business.”
“Since when?” Placing her hand on her hip, she cocked her head to the side with an arched brow. “Three and a half years have gone by, Miles, and barely a word. One email conversation, and a handful of calls. That’s it. In my eyes, our friendship is tentative at best.”
I almost smiled at the use of my last name. Whenever she was annoyed with me, I was Miles.
“And I’ll apologize for that misconception.” Standing up, I locked eyes with her. Made sure that she saw the want—the truth in my stare—while I made my way across the room. She swallowed and took a step back, but for each one of hers, I’d take two. Didn’t stop until there was but a mere inch of separation between her body and mine. A stray curl caught my eye, and I reached out to place it behind her ear, my fingers skimming down the side of her neck. “But we will never be estranged, sweet girl. Never could be strangers when we share so much history together.”
“Shared. Past tense…” didn’t miss the breathiness in her voice. “…I don’t know you anymore.”
I devoured the sight of her chest rising and falling with each exaggerated breath. The way her nipples tightened, pressing against the thin fabric of her top. How the goosebumps on her skin spread, having nothing to do with the room’s temperature.
She wanted me closer. Welcomed this pulsing need that flowed between us.
Inhaling deep, I took the subtle scent of vanilla into my lungs and hissed as an electrical pulse rushed through my every nerve ending. It settled on the swollen tip of my dick. My chest expanded with the act and her eyes wandered lower, down my torso, and then paused at my throbbing erection.
Bailey licked her lips, and I smirked. “Eyes up here,” I crooned low, and green eyes met grey. There was no mistaking her labored breathing nor the heavy-lidded look of desire she wore. Something I’d use to my advantage to make baby girl mine. “I’m only going to say this once, so pay attention.” She nodded, and I leaned down to her level, placing my lips next to her ear. “For most of my life you’ve been that adorable little girl who slept over and was my sister’s best friend. My friend. But tonight…fuck—tonight, when you walked in and our eyes met, that reality ceased to exist. That tiny beauty I knew morphed into a beautiful woman that I plan to get to know. Romance, and then someday soon…own. Because I will. Of that I have no doubt.”
“Hunter, I…”
Placing a finger over her lips, I silenced her. “No more words. Let me show you with actions.” My lips skimmed down her neck and nipped her collarbone before walking out of the living room and up the stairs. Left her standing there dazed and immobile.
I’d laid a lot on her tonight, and she needed to process. Accept her new reality.
That Hunter Miles was going to woo the fuck out of her.

New Release – Tantrum

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Tantrum
A Kenshaw Ranch Novel
Author: Piper Frost
Genre: Western Romance
Release Date: April 27, 2018

BLURB

My luck’s never been the best when it comes to anything other than women. Hell, even women deal me a bad hand every now and then. Like the time I slept with my boss’s wife. That was my last day of employment in Sin City.
I’m Chase Haring and if you ask my friends they’ll tell you I don’t have the best track record.
Now that I’m back, I’m taking it in stride. I’ve got my tattoo shop. I’ve got the bar. And I’ve had damn near any woman I wanted in this small town. That means I want out of here for good.
When a smiling redhead walks into the bar, I know I definitely haven’t had her.
Kaydence.
This town doesn’t create people like her.
One sexy night in a haunted house is all it takes. And now we’re inseparable and thoughts of leaving for good become less appealing.
She’s what I need in my life.
Positive. Refreshing. Happy.  
Interest moves to lust and straight to love before anyone expects it. Before I even get to know any layer but the happy-go-lucky girl she lets everyone see. She’s refusing to let the negative world get to her. She’s also refusing to forget the saying ‘everything happens for a reason’. That’s why when I walk away, she watches me go without a blink of an eye.
I’m good at a tantrum, especially when you rip up my heart like only she’s capable of doing. I’m bad at figuring out how to move on, especially when it’s Kaydence I have to move on from.

AUTHOR BIO

Thelma and Louise. Boris and Natasha. H.Q. Frost and M. Piper. When these two teamed up to form Piper Frost, they never knew how amazing it would be working together to create wonderful masterpieces of joy, tears, humor, and heartbreak. Piper’s favorite part about Frost? The fact that she puts up with her. Period. Also the fact that she makes her writing better every damn time. She’s friggin’ brilliant. Frosts favorite thing about Piper? Frost loves the fact that when they get together to create it becomes a tornado of brilliance that Frost couldn’t be more grateful to be caught up in with Piper. Piper’s artistic abilities and mad skills make Frost so proud to be associated with her (it makes her look good too). Also if Piper didn’t adult for the both of them, not much would get done.

What they both know as true, however, is that creating babies together has been the best adventure either of them has ever been on.

EXCERPT 

THE CLUBHOUSE IS buzzing with life tonight. Every member and their ol’ lady came out for the cage fight. No other MC members are allowed on a night like this. It’s in-house and exclusive. Keeps the outcome private and the bruised egos of the losers contained. I plan on bruising more than their egos. I want them carried out on a fucking stretcher.
These men aren’t my brothers. They don’t know loyalty, honor, or respect the patch and the brotherhood it stands for. They’re weak men. Men who get off on torturing and raping a woman who couldn’t defend herself against them. I don’t see them as equals. I’ll never see them as equals.
Through the church room is another set of double doors. This is where we have our fight cage and private bar. Wooden benches line two walls, the cage taking up the other two. Between the benches and the fight cage are high top and low top tables with bar stools and chairs. Every seat is filled and the liquor is pouring heavily. A few bucks make their rounds on who’s going to win the fight. It’s fun play for my brothers, but for me, tonight is about so much more.
Lighting dim, it makes the blood stains on the cage mat harder to see, but it’s there as a lingering memory of previous fights. Fights I’ve been a part of. Blood I’ve contributed myself. You don’t last in the Serpents as long as I have without shedding some.
Across the cage, between the bars, I can see Drake and Levi getting themselves worked up for the fight. A slap to the face, some words for courage, a shot glass thrown back. Next to me are Mercy, John, Tex and RJ, some of my closest brothers. Mercy slaps my bare back and hands me a shot.
“Fuck ‘em up.”
With the shot thrown back, I bob my head. Shirt in my hands, I pull it over my head and toss it on a chair. Reaching into my pocket, I retrieve the brass knuckles I brought. That’s an advantage with the cage fights—there are no rules.
Christian opens the cage door and dips his head, indicating Drake and Levi need to enter. Shirts off and in their jeans, they go into the cage, bouncing on the tips of their feet. They’re wired and ready, probably high on coke too. Another advantage for me. With intent steps, I flex my muscles and give Christian a hard stare as I enter the cage.
The door locks behind us and I measure my opponents. Levi is tall and gangly, has speed, but will easily be put off balance. Drake has muscles, a solid core, slightly shorter than I am, but he always steps before he punches. It’s been engrained in me to study the way every man I know fights, especially the ones closest to you.
Bloodshot eyes and their hyper energy are telltale signs they’re high. The corner of my mouth raises when the circling starts. They’ll come at me together at first, in hopes to overpower me, wear me down. Then once I’m tired, they’ll split up and go for individual attacks to give themselves breaks and ensure I remain exhausted. They’re dumb fucks if they think the fight will last that long.
They both charge and I slam into Levi. Hand to his throat, I ram him into the cage bars, knocking the wind out of him. Grip tight on his throat, I bring the brass knuckles down on his face. Blood spurts from his nose, then again from his busted lips.
“Fuuuck!” the word roars from my chest.
The cold steal slices across the lower left side of my back. Enraged, I turn on Drake and see him holding the bloody switchblade.
If blood is what they want, blood is what I’ll give them.
Fast hand to his wrist, I wrap my elbow around his arm and kick his leg out from under him. The blade drops and I flip him over slamming him to the ground. No hesitation, I snatch the blade and whip it across his cheek. Blood pours from the thin, neat cut. Flicking the blade into my other hand, I nail it into his thigh.
With the painkiller effects of the coke running through his system, he bellows from the wound, but still has a lot of fight. Seeing Levi come at me with a set of spiked knuckles, I get one brass-knuckled punch to Drake’s face before I duck and roll, dodging the swing of Levi’s arm.
Quick on my feet, I feel the warmth of my own blood running down my skin on the inside of my jeans. That’s gonna need stitches. I need to move fast before I lose too much blood. Drake pulls the blade from his thigh and limps to his feet, holding the bars of the cage.
Circling one another, the crowd is alive with energy, screaming and hollering inaudible words at us. They’re hungry for more.
Waving my fingers, I encourage their attack. Levi’s got good legs, so he comes at me first. With an uppercut of the brass knuckles, he lands on his back. One hard boot to his face and he’s lights out.
Drake circles me, blade in hand. With a fast swing, he grazes my arm, slicing it enough to make me bleed, but not enough to make me give a fuck. The fresh scent of copper fills my nostrils. Crimson red covers Drake’s face and stains his jeans. Watching his feet, he lunges again, and I grab his hand, lock onto it, turn inside his arm and elbow his face, breaking his nose. Pulling his hand backward, the blade drops. With one swift turn, I put brass to bone, knocking him on his ass.
I only stop when I see his eyelids. He’s out cold, and I heave a breath, controlling my fury before I murder him here in front of everyone. Rising to my feet, I pull the brass knuckles from my bloodied hand. The cage door opens for me, and I step out to hoots, hollers, pats on the back, and shots shoved into my hands. I down two for the pain.
All the faces are an adrenaline pumping blur until I see her—my Sparrow. Running to me, I enfold her in my arms, kissing her hard and fierce.

BLURB

You might say it’s poor form to throw the bride over your shoulder caveman-style and run off with her, especially if it’s not your wedding.

Whoops.
It’s her wedding day. I’m not the groom. Oh, but I’m going to be…

The world may call me a King and a gentleman, but there’s nothing gentle about me. I’ve fought like hell to get to where I am, and these rough hands want one thing and one thing only – to hold her and never let her go.

She’s my obsession – my addiction. Blonde, blue-eyed, innocent and tempting, with lips that beg to be tasted and curves that were made to press against me.

But a rival king – a cruel, evil piece of shit – has stepped in to buy her hand and her innocence with the promise of paying off her parents’ debts. He thinks that makes her his, but he’s about to learn how wrong he is.

You see, the rumors about my royal staff aren’t tall tales. She deserves a real man. A better man. King Milton just isn’t the right fit for her.

…Oh, but I am. And I’m going to “fit” with her so well that she’ll be moaning for more. I’m a king, after all. And kings take what they want.

And tonight? I’m taking her.

EXCERPTS 

#1 

“Do you really go by Elizabeth with everyone?” I ask, enjoying the smooth taste of the vodka. “No nickname?”

“Yeah. Everyone calls me that, except this one cousin who calls me Eliza. I think he felt rebellious when he was younger, you know? And it stuck. With him, anyway.”

She’s probably wrong about her cousin. Elizabeth is too formal a name for this woman. She’s too vivacious, too open and too sexy. She needs a shorter, snappier name.

“But…” She knocks back the second shot of vodka. “You can call me Liza. Nobody calls me that, and I think it suits me better than Elizabeth or Eliza, don’t you?”

I nod, ridiculously pleased I’m going to get my own name for her.

“So what’s your name?” she asks.

“Dominic.”

“Nice. I like it.” She smiles and runs a fingertip along my lips as she leans forward. “Can I call you something else, though?”

I feel the touch like an electric shock. My heart thuds. “Like what?”

“Mine.”

#2 

I lose the track of my friends’ conversation as the fine hair at my nape bristles — not unpleasantly — and my gaze lands on the sole bartender on the other side of the counter.

Everything fades away except him.

I’ve met handsome men, hot men, aristocratic men, charming men on both sides of the Atlantic. My family alone has four brothers and four cousins who make women stupid with their looks. Having grown up around such male beauty, I’ve always considered myself immune — able to appreciate it without turning into some kind of infatuated drooler.

But the bartender…

Everything about him is absurd.

The absurd perfection of his bone structure. The absurd blue of his eyes. The absurd firmness of his lips. The absurd muscularity of his big, strong body.

When our gazes collide, I feel like every cell in my body is waking up after a lifetime of slumber. My heart beats a little bit faster, a little bit harder. Blood flows a little quicker, a little hotter.

Is this sexual attraction?

I shake my head inwardly. I’ve felt attraction to guys before. But nothing like this. This man shines like a brilliant gemstone, like the heavens opened up and a halo appeared around him.

Then I remember what Grandpa used to say.

“When I first met your grandmother, I knew she was the one.”

“How?” I asked. An exceptional artist, Grandpa has a propensity for exaggeration and dramatic flair.

“Because she made me forget where I was. Every time I laid eyes on her, nothing else mattered. Colors were brighter, food tasted better, and the air felt cleaner. All because I met her.”

I laughed. “That’s just infatuation, Grandpa.”

He shook his head. “No, no, my little angel. It’s called love. My soul recognized hers.”

I tried not to laugh at such a ridiculous story. On the other hand, Grandpa’s first marriage lasted until the death of his wife in a sailing accident. And by all accounts, they adored each other.

Suddenly Vanessa taps my elbow. “Earth to Elizabeth. Come on.” She tilts her shiny red head toward the bar. “We’re sitting at the counter.”

Apparently the decision has been made. “Okay.” I park my butt across from the bartender, Grandpa’s words about soul mates circling in my head.

Because if this bartender’s mine, he’s popped up at the most inconvenient time and the most inconvenient location.

#3 

Elizabeth reaches over and runs her fingers along my thigh. Her scent — vanilla and lavender — tickles my nose. An electric charge sizzles at the base of my spine, and heated blood pumps hard through my veins. “You going to start the car or what?” She smiles, her cheeks flushed.

Logic and good intentions grow fuzzy. I don’t hook up with women I meet at the bar. I want to set a good example for my baby sister so she knows to look for a guy who’ll take her seriously and treat her well. And I’m usually just too busy with life — college courses, taking care of my sister and working two jobs.

But with Elizabeth, none of that matters. The only thing is her being with me…and the undercurrent of instinctive knowledge that if I end this now, she’s going to slip away, never to be seen again.

My mouth dry, I speed toward my place, half an hour from the bar. I don’t run any red lights, but it’s pretty close a couple of times.

She laughs softly. “Love it that you’re impatient.”

“Do you?”

“You want me.”

“What man wouldn’t?”

She grows wistful. “Not everyone wants me.”

“You’ve been with the wrong men.”

She opens her mouth, then instead of saying anything, drags her teeth along her lower lip.

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 26, 2018

Meyah wasn’t the same girl she used to be.

She was becoming a woman. One who wasn’t afraid to speak up and stand her ground, refusing to go back to that girl who let the world walk all over her and break her down.

Her love for Hamlet, though. It gave her strength.

Meyah knew their relationship was never going to be easy.

When misunderstandings and bad decisions threw them off course, they would need to fight even harder to repair the cracks which had appeared. And even then, it was never going to be perfect.

But Meyah didn’t want perfect.

She wanted Ham.

He encouraged her to be herself, to fight for what she wanted. So when Meyah stumbled across the piece of herself which had always been missing, she couldn’t help but want to know more about this man she could finally call Dad.

Huntsman was dangerous, he was deadly, and there were people out there who would do anything to bring him to his knees. And Meyah was about to find herself right in their firing line.

Lines would be drawn.

Loyalties would be questioned.

And love was about to be tested like never before.

Blurb:

Begin as you intend to end. That was my motto.

It was how I had always lived my life.

From the moment my roommate and sometimes fuck buddy Mitch and I arrived back at his childhood home on the second chance ranch, things became clear.

He wanted April. I wanted them both.

I always get what I want.

This time is different. It feels like everything is on the line, and I’m terrified to crash and burn.

Getting what I want isn’t going to be so easy this time around. Mitch has to finally come to terms with the fact that he’s in love with me, and while he’s doing that, we have to convince April to fall in love with both of us. We have to step up and prove that despite all our faults and problems, we are worthy of that love.

It’s a lot, but I begin how I intend to end. With Mitch beside me, April between us, and us as her Daddies.

There are a lot of roadblocks along the way, buy I’m dead set determined to get my happy ending. And I always get what I want

Excerpt:

“Have you ever had a Daddy before?”

The question confused me, and for a moment I thought of my own Dad, before understanding that That wasn’t what he meant. “Not..not like that,” I stammered, blushing profusely. I had never even considered a Daddy figure, but at this moment, God, I wanted one.

“Not like that, huh? You’ve never had a Daddy to snuggle and spoil you , and spank you soundly before tucking you into bed?”

I shook my head, finding myself wishing it was time for dinner instead of time for breakfast. Wanting everything Mitch was offering.

Except that he wasn’t offering. Or, was he?

Even when his giant hand cupped my ass, I wasn’t sure I hadn’t imagined the whole exchange.

My panties were drenched. My chest was heavy, and my breathing was soft but labored.

If it wasn’t real, it was some fantasy.

“I can be your Daddy.” He whispered the words I didn’t even realize I longed to hear.

“I can as well.” The booming voice with its Yankee twang, surprised me and I turned to see Brody filling the doorway. His wide stance filled the French doors, and his arms folded over his chest. The look on his face that lacked tenderness and bode no argument.

I felt the change in Mitch without looking at him.

Brody snapped his fingers. “Two daddies are better than one , little girl. Come upstairs with us, and we’ll show you.”

The perfect man for me is a blood-sucking lawyer. #pfftwhatever

Been there.

Done that.

Burned the T-shirt.

I didn’t swear off all men after my divorce, but I sure as hell swore off anyone remotely like my ex. On the top of that list? Attorneys. Everyone knows they can’t be trusted.

Now that I’m back in Chicago, my focus is my daughter, my mom and me. I haven’t given up on finding my happily-ever-after, it’s just on hold—indefinitely.

Then I see Reed Warner again, and he weasels his way into every part of my life, not willing to take no for an answer.

In spite of my better judgment I can’t stop thinking about the way his designer suits fit his muscular frame, or the way his blue eyes seem to eat me up with every glance.

You know when you’re on a diet and even hummus seems irresistible? Reed is like the equivalent of chocolate éclair and my willpower is fading fast.

The problem? Not only is he a lawyer…

He was the best man at my wedding.

EXCERPT 

“Would you mind keeping this piece steady while I attach it?” he asks, interrupting my reverie.
“No problem.” I take my position opposite him, holding the piece of trim in place against the dresser as he drills screws into the underside so that they remain hidden from view. It’s like magic.
I study him as he works.
He tilts his head this way and that to make sure the piece is level before he starts. Then, he lifts the drill, and taut muscles shine with sweat as he drives each screw into the boards with purpose. His forearms flex and jump with every movement. And his tattoo calls my eye to follow the bumps and dips of his biceps and triceps.
Wesley Scott is a perfectly sculpted specimen of man. He’s strong. Confident. Capable.
He catches me staring and winks, rewarding me with his rare, crooked grin. I feel myself flush as I quickly look away, totally busted.
No, I don’t mind helping him one bit.

EXCERPT

We both laughed and clinked the plastic together before each taking a sip.
Licking the sweetness from my lips, I lowered my glass with both hands, eyes following it.
“Can I ask you something?”
“Sure, anything.” Logan drained his portion of champagne and set his glass down. Sticking hands in his pockets, he leaned his hip against the freezer to face me.
“Why do you care so much?” I lifted my face, devoid of expression. “I mean about my writing. About my work. All these years, I thought you were this tough, no feelings kind of guy. Yet, you’ve shown so much… I don’t know. Emotion. Why?”
Logan paused, a soft grin on his face, then tilted his head and moved in closer. “I told you before. You don’t know me as well as you think you do.”
Squirming, a little embarrassed, I broke from his gaze and tucked my elbows close to my side, still holding onto my champagne flute with both hands.
“Well I am glad that you’re here.” I took in a deep breath and let it out slow, savoring the moment as I looked to the rich sunset forming outside. Pinks, blues, lavenders. Like cotton candy.
I turned back, Logan’s face only inches from mine.
“Me too,” he answered. Just then, the breeze whipped in through the door. “It probably should be Ryan, though. Right?” Logan pressed his lips tight, leaned back some and looked away towards the sunset.
My stomach clenched at the mention of my husband’s name. “Maybe. But he wouldn’t be toasting with me. That’s for sure.”
Lifting my glass, I drained what was left in it. Logan didn’t miss a beat and reached for the bottle, giving me a refill. I took a sip before continuing.
“And, I doubt he’d care. I don’t think he wants me to succeed at anything; he has no concern for my passions whatsoever. I’m not sure I’ll even tell him about this.”
I went quiet, my head spinning, not only from the phone call and the champagne, but also from the reality of my situation. The thought of Ryan dampened my celebratory mood.
“Hey…” Logan removed the glass from my hands with the tip of his fingers and set it down. “Let’s not talk about him right now. Okay?” Taking my arms, he pulled me close, wrapping them around the back of his waist. Nervous, my heart pounded as I caught the essence of carburetor mixed with his signature musky lemon cologne from his t-shirt. He’d come from working at Monroe Auto, but he somehow smelled good enough to go on a date.
“Okay,” I murmured and looked up at him. He released his hands to hold my face. Rough and calloused from working on cars all his life, his touch was still delicate as he bent, taking my lips in his.
Logan kissed me, light and gentle at first. Like I might break under his touch. But then, he dragged me closer, pressing his body to mine and taking more of me into his mouth, our kiss building intensity.
“I care,” he whispered against my skin.
My body wouldn’t relax fully. We lived on the outskirts of town, but with the garage door open, anyone could see right in. That would start some gossip.
“What’s wrong?” He leaned back, picking up on my tension. Noooo, don’t stop. 
I pointed to the open door, then wiped at my wet lips.
He smirked. “That’s easy.” He walked to the side of the door and pressed the CLOSE button. The walk-in door to the outside was still open, but this was enough to conceal us.
He took back his place with me, and I let go, running my hand up his back, feeling the warmth of his skin. A moment later, Logan drew back again, his eyes fixed down into mine. He kept his hands tangled behind my head in my long hair.
“He has no idea what he has, Em. The depth of you is incredible. I see it. I see you.”
I squeezed my eyes shut, trying not to cry again. Logan took notice and pulled me to his chest in a hug.
With my eyes still shut, I lifted away. Logan bent, our lips crashing again, before I opened them.  I wanted to stay like this forever.
A minute later, a truck roared outside the garage door. Ryan.
“Shit!” Logan and I broke from each other. I grabbed my glass, clearing my throat; he grabbed his bottle of beer, and we composed ourselves quickly. He stayed close, though, enough to touch the side of my body. We leaned with our backs against the deep freeze as Ryan walked in the side door.
Everything that had just happened–everything that has happened–with Logan had felt right. Unfortunately, that still didn’t make it right.
“What the hell is this?” Once inside, Ryan planted his legs wide and crossed his arms. His face tightened, and he glared between the two of them.

BLURB

Magnolia Ellington is all too aware that dangerous things can come in shiny packages. Her husband made sure to teach her that.

Desperate to escape his wrath—and his fists—she flees in the dark of night. Seeking safety and shelter with the only family she has left, Magnolia finds herself in the sleepy, Southern town of Dogwood—and in the arms of Simon McAllister.

Simon has always been more of a thinker than a doer. That changes the minute he meets shy and mysterious Magnolia. She has him rushing into action, ready and willing to do whatever it takes to earn her trust.

Slowly, with his steadfast determination and kind heart, Simon brings Magnolia out of her shell. But just as things start heating up between the two of them, the darkness of Magnolia’s past resurfaces, threatening to rip apart everything they’ve worked so hard for.

With their future hanging in the balance, Simon fears he’s losing Magnolia. Now, he must convince her that, together, they can weather the storm.

EXCERPT 

I jolt awake, momentarily disoriented by the rhythmic beeping coming from my right. Beep. Beep. Beep. Again and again, the sound causes my temples to throb. Even though my eyes are still pinched closed, I know this is not my room, and I am not in my bed. Without warning, the events that led me here flash through my mind: hitting Simon’s truck and the subsequent ambulance ride. I remember the CT scan, and being given pain medication. I must have fallen asleep shortly after that.
I inhale deeply, trying to get my bearings, and cringe at the smell of antiseptic hanging in the air. God, I hate hospitals.
Slowly, I try to blink my eyes open, only to immediately close them again. Whimpering at the brightness of the room, I sink farther into the small, firm mattress before steeling my resolve to try again.
I peel one lid open and hold it, adjusting, before peeling the other open as well. “So bright,” I whine to myself, squinting up at the light above me. My head feels like an entire drumline has taken it as their practice space; the thrumming and pounding is incessant.
With all the strength I can muster, I roll my head to face the far wall of the small hospital room, only to startle at the sight of the most gorgeous man I’ve ever laid eyes on sleeping in the chair in the corner, his light-brown hair messy, his chiseled jaw covered in stubble. “S-Simon?” I whisper, more to myself than to him.
All the same, he jolts like someone took a live wire to his skin. “You’re up?” He lunges from the chair toward me, gently taking my hand in his, scanning my body before bringing his deep-blue eyes to mine. “Are you—fuck, you have no idea how happy I am to see those baby-blue eyes right now. Let me call for your doctor.”
He starts to withdraw his hand from mine, and I let out the most pathetic whimper, halting him. “Don’t go,” I beg.
“Not going anywhere. Just gonna hit the call button,” he assures me, leaving me feeling foolish, even though that wasn’t his intention.

Gabe:
I should have stayed away from her. I knew better.
But instead, I treated every single day like it was my damn birthday, and she was a luscious devil’s food cake slathered in creamy icing.

Helena:
I’d spent my entire life being cautious, never took any real risks.
And I did it to shield the people I loved from needless worry.
To protect them.

He didn’t want children.
She couldn’t imagine a life without them —Home
especially now.

There are few occasions in one’s life where the body warns of impending doom.
This was one of them.

Unforgettable is the fourth book in The New American Royals Series, and may be read and enjoyed as a standalone contemporary romance.

Gabe

I didn’t want anyone even breathing on her—no son of a bitch touching her. I didn’t give a shit how innocent it was. When I saw her on the dance floor, moving seductively, that gorgeous body in nothing but a skimpy little dress and those shoes… Oh, God, those shoes

I was already on my feet when Danilo said, “Let’s go.”

In one easy move, her fingers landed on my face, robbing me of breath. Fuckohfuckohfuck.

I pinned her arms at her hips so she couldn’t touch me again. Kept her just far enough away that she couldn’t stoke my arousal.

If this had been anyone else, any other woman who had me this worked up, I’d have slid my tongue down her throat by now, rocked her hips against my swollen cock until she was begging me to find someplace where we could be alone. But this was Helena. This was complicated. Too damn complicated

Every last drop of blood must have left my brain, because I pulled her closer. I don’t remember actually doing it. I only remember the warmth of her pressed against me and the sultry scent of vanilla floating from her skin, swirling with the heady stench of sweat and sex wafting around us. My head was spinning.

Releasing her arms, I threaded my fingers deep into her silky hair, palming the curve of her head. Forcing myself to be gentle. My free hand held her firmly against me, lifting her slightly, and when she wiggled closer, grinding into my cock, I nearly lost it.

I was half aware of people moving around us, of my heart pounding relentlessly in my ears, but all I really knew was her. Everything else was just background noise. I needed her. I needed her bad, and I needed her now. Right now.

At that moment, I didn’t give a shit about Professor Tines’s warning, didn’t care that we were in the middle of a club in Rome, didn’t care if she was an innocent virgin. I wanted her. Wanted her more than I’d ever wanted anyone.

I planted my mouth on hers, full-on, in a lewd, demanding kiss. And when she moaned, I slid my tongue over hers, gliding the tip over the smooth roof of her mouth. Holding her firmly against my erection, I swallowed her moans.

Using both hands, she pulled my head down to deepen the kiss and I eagerly complied, tasting the fruity wine lingering at the back of her throat.

Only when Danilo shoved my arm when he was leaving the dance floor did I realize the music had stopped. Dazed, and desperate to recover from my Helena-induced stupor, I pulled away clumsily. She whimpered, and I stood there, sucking air, trying to regain some semblance of self-control.

About Eva

After being a confirmed city-girl for more than thirty-five years, Eva moved to beautiful Western Massachusetts in 2014. There, she found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she’d been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into romantic tales.

When she’s not writing, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.

Review – I Dare You

I Dare You; The Hook Up #1 (Series)
by Ilsa Madden-Mills (Author)

This review is from: April 25, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

Maverick Monroe is THE football guy attending Waylon University. Even as a freshman the superbly built six foot four blonde defensive linebacker has buzz surrounding him about his future playing in the NFL.

Is he cocky? Perhaps.

Does he deserve to be? Delaney Shaw wouldn’t know because she doesn’t watch sports. She spends her time in the library or maybe watching a movie, but knowing the statistics of the sports players on campus, no way.

However, when her best friend, Skye, dares her to flirt with said football player that has been eyeballing her all night at a party, Delaney isn’t one to pass up a dare. Unfortunately Mr. Cocky is otherwise preoccupied with someone else so she moves on too.

Two years go by before they get another chance to take things beyond just a party dare. The more Delaney gets to know Maverick the more she likes the man beneath the football pads, but that’s the crux of the problem. She doesn’t trust any man in a football uniform especially since her last boyfriend was a cheating football player and Maverick for as great as he seems does have secrets to hide.

Trust is such a big factor when you decide if you want to love someone. No matter what Maverick wants or doesn’t want his focus is on football, he has so much to lose if he takes his eye off the prize. Delaney and him probably shouldn’t happen in the grand scheme of things, but he just can’t seem to stop himself.

Will you dare to read this fantastic new read by Ilsa Madden-Mills? It’s so full of heart, geekisms, and a great story to boot.

Why read this story? Geeky references galore, which I loved, unicorn donuts, I need to find those and devour some immediately, and lastly a love-able hero. Come on, read it today…I dare you.

Release Blitz – Awkward Love Series

SERIES BLITZ
Awkward Love Series
Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: Romance

#1 It’s Complicated – Release Date: December 13, 2017

They call him the Anaconda, and I’m pretty sure it isn’t because he likes snakes.

Nick Jenson is my neighbor. My hot, oh-so-sexy, very-well-equipped neighbor that I’d spend hours watching from the safety of my bedroom window.

I saw lots of things I probably shouldn’t have. Sometimes I’d touch myself, imagining it were his hands roaming over my body instead of my own. I had just one mission—to find out if the rumors were true.

Then one day, he caught me watching him.

I was mortified. I was prepared to quit college, move to another country, and live the rest of my life saying, “Nick who?” But, apparently, life had other ideas.

Because Nick? Well, he isn’t just my neighbor … He’s also my father’s best friend. If I thought things were difficult before, they were about to get a whole lot more complicated.

Oh, and those rumors? Holy fuck, are they true …

#2 I Can Explain – Release Date: February 15, 2018

Standing on the balcony, outside my boss’s apartment, wearing only my underwear?

Not how I expected to start my Saturday morning.

I guess I should’ve thought harder about going home with my sexy new gym instructor, especially since I had no idea the guy was married. When he pushed me out onto the balcony, five seconds before his wife walked through the door, I jumped one apartment over because I thought it would be less embarrassing for a stranger to find me than his wife.

That was a smart move.

So here I am, wearing next to nothing and freezing my ass off, standing outside the living room window of my young, sexy, and very intimidating boss, Chase Winston.

I have two choices: I sit here and try to think of another way out of this and risk dying of hypothermia. Or I can suck it up and knock on that window. After a long, internal argument with myself, I choose
option two.

Here goes nothing…

#3 Too Much Information – Release Date: April 16, 2018

We’ve all been there.

One minute, you’re sprawled out on your bed, minding our own business and the next you’re lying in the back seat of your best friend’s car as she races you to the ER.

And not the closest one either.

No. You’re headed to the one fifty miles farther out, because the one five minutes away is where you start your residency next week.

So there you are, lying in cubical nine, hoping like hell that the doctor about to examine you isn’t young, sexy or male.

Of course he’s all three.

Telling him about the clitmaster7000 I have lodged inside me is by far the single most embarrassing moment of my life.

Discovering he’s my brother’s new roommate is even worse.

#4 Comfort Zone – Releasing June 15, 2018

There’s nothing quite like watching your professor as he motorboats a stripper.

The expression on his face when he looked up and saw me standing there would’ve been funny if I wasn’t so mortified. I wanted to turn around and run, but I couldn’t do that to Jake. It was his bachelor party, after all.

So, instead, we stumbled our way through the world’s most awkward conversation, because what do you say after witnessing that?

At least things couldn’t get much worse, right?

Wrong.

The real fun began when the guys figured out how we knew each other.

Have you ever heard of the term frottage? Yeah, neither had I. Just like I’d completely underestimated how awkward it would be getting a lap dance from another woman while my professor watches, or how turned on I’d be.

My first mistake was going there in the first place.
My second mistake was not leaving the moment I saw him.
My third mistake, and the one I regret most?

Applying for that TA position with him last week…
