Dear Captor,You show me you care, but then something changes. The brightness in your eyes
shines through on your good days, but when you come to me on your dark days,
the blackness has taken over.

At least I know what I’m in for . . . pain.

You’ve managed to crawl under my skin in the most excruciating yet sensual way,
my darkest secrets are now yours, and the emotions I feel for you are something
I’ve never felt before. This sensation is strange, yet exhilarating.

Do you feel the same?

If you do love me, please . . . let me go.

Forever yours,

Elenore

At Last! We finally find out who Captor is! It’s the Third and final installment, and I know I’ve been waiting rather impatiently to find out all of the unanswered questions from this series.While I’m not going to mention who Eleanor’s captor is, (You are just going to have to read this spellbinding series) I will say I was a bit surprised.

He was supposed to have let her run, then killed her. But he’s kept her. When we last left her, she’d been attacked by another masked man who was teaching captor a lesson. I had figured out who one of the players in this sordid tale was, and Eleanor knew her captor was someone familiar. After the attack, the answers all come to light, and we find out just why she got to live. Trust me, this is one series you don’t want to miss!

Most Eligible Bastard by Annika Martin

MEB-SBPRBANNER-BT.jpg

Title: Most Eligible Bastard

Author: Annika Martin

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Most Eligible Bastard, an all-new standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Annika Martin is LIVE!

AMMostEligibleBastardCover525x8_HIGH

He’s a powerful billionaire CEO who built the family business into an empire. The money doesn’t matter to him, but the company is his life. And then his eccentric mother wills it all to her tiny dog.

********

I’m Vicky, the dog whisperer. (Not really, but that’s what my elderly neighbor always says.) When she dies, she surprises everybody by leaving a corporation worth billions to her dog, Smuckers. With me as his spokesperson.

Suddenly I go from running my Etsy store to sitting in an elegant Wall Street boardroom with Smuckers in my lap. And my neighbor’s son, Henry Locke, aka New York’s most eligible bachelor, glaring across the table at me.

Rumor has it Henry’s a business genius who’s as talented in the bedroom as he is in the boardroom. Sure, he’s gorgeous. Sex-in-a-seven-thousand dollar suit. But…

He’s arrogant and infuriating.

He refuses to listen to me when I insist I didn’t con his mother.

He thinks he can bully me, buy me off, control me, even seduce me.

Henry may have the women of Manhattan eating out of the palm of his hand, but I’m so over entitled rich guys who think they own the world.

No way will his wicked smile be charming ME out of my panties.

His wicked…devastating…impossible-to-resist smile.

Oh well, who needs panties anyway?

KG Logo

Most Eligible Bastard is probably one of the best romantic comedies that I’ve read in a long time. Anika Martin has written a funny, but sad at times story of a woman, a rich a-hole, and a dog who has quite a bit to say.

Vicky has been the dog whisperer for cranky Bernadette’s dog Smuckers for 3 years. When Bernadette passes, she leaves Smuckers an incredible legacy. Uber-rich business owner Henry Locke thinks Vicky scammed his mother, so he’s going to do anything to get her to drop out.

Vicky has dealt with jerky rich men before, and Henry learns little by little that maybe Vicky isn’t who he thought she was. But his family is determined to oust her any way they can. It’s a wonderful read that I just couldn’t put down, and Smuckers had me in rib=splitting stitches!

Excerpt:

She glares at me now. “I can’t believe you tried to strip poor Smuckers of his vote. Do you have no decency?”

“When it comes to protecting this company?” I say. “No.”

Her gaze intensifies. “Just no?”

“None at all,” I say. “No decency whatsoever. Nada, if you will.”

Her pretty lips part. It’s shock. Maybe a little bit awe.

I give her an amused smile, adjusting my jacket sleeve over my cuff just so. The suit was tailored by a man who charges three hundred bucks an hour and is worth every penny.

“Uh,” she says. “You think you’re all that? You’re not.”

“Oh, I am all that,” I say. “I very much am. And for the record, I will crush you in the end.”

“Smuckers had this medication once,” she says. “We tried to hide it in his food, and he spit it out. No matter what we did, he’d spit it out.” She puts one finger on the paper with the new amendment and slides it back across the desk. “Smuckers doesn’t like when people try to fool him. That’s his message for you.”

“I have a message for Smuckers.” I put my finger on it and slide it back across to her. “Smuckers needs to know that we have a private investigator on this case. Smuckers might not have very nice food to eat if you ended up in prison.”

Finally she looks scared.

Brett swoops in. “I say we settle this. One-time offer from me personally.” He writes the number—$4,500,000.00. “This offer expires in two minutes.”

My heart pounds. She needs to take offer. We’ve shown how close she can come to losing everything.

She looks at the paper.

She’s all alone caring for that sister of hers. She’s poor—we have her banking information; we know it for a fact. She has every reason in the world to take it. Yet she hesitates.

“This is our last offer,” Brett says. “After this, we’ll take the company from you, and you’ll get nothing.”

She raises her brown eyes to me. It’s me she’s really dealing with. I like that she knows that.

“You know what Smuckers hates even more than being fooled?” she says.

My heart pounds. She almost lost everything to me, and now she’s going to tell me a dog story?

“He hates being threatened,” she says. “And bullied. He really, really hates it.”

“Well he’s going to have to get used to it,” I hear myself saying. “He’s used to bubbles and bows and sunny parks but he’s in the jungle now. There are animals who are faster and stronger and smarter than he is. Animals who will dominate him easily—savagely, even.”

“Then you don’t know Smuckers very well.”

“Oh, I know all about Smuckers, and I’d suggest he practice rolling over. Baring his belly for the superior predator.” I lower my voice. “Begging sweetly for mercy.”

The color heightens in her face. This shouldn’t be fun.

But oh, it is.

I keep going. “Smuckers may think he can request packets and bylaws and get up to speed, but he can’t compete here. He doesn’t have the skills.”

“Smuckers thinks owning fifty-one percent is the best skill to have,” she says.

ZANE_TEASER1

Ex-soldier Zane Tucker is perfectly happy with his single life and his adventure watersports business. A gambler by nature, he figures the odds of finding a woman for forever are a lot longer than finding a woman for right now. And as a man of action and not emotion, he believes a woman with lasting romance on the mind would want someone with less hard muscle and more soft sentiment. But then his dog hurtles toward the new county librarian, yanking Zane into her delicate, pretty presence. Will they both scare her away? And why does that worry him so?

Harper Grace has a bucket list of goals to tick off and is determined to live every moment to the fullest by overcoming her usual shyness. No one will call her too timid and too boring ever again. But then a giant of a man and his equally large dog charge into her life and she can’t decide if she wants to take a step back…or step fully into Zane’s strong arms. She’s been brave enough to change her life, but does she have enough courage to risk her heart?

Zane is one of the books in the Seven Brides for Seven Soldiers series. Zane is supposedly moping according to both his family and the small community he lives in. He also has a crazy dog that has more phobias than most humans. Gambler goes out of control and knocks into local librarian Harper Grace, and thus begins the crazy relationship between the two.

This was a quick and fun read. The other books in this series are written by other authors, and reading this makes me want to check them out. Ms Ridgeway’s writing kept me interested through the entire book with a fascinating cast of characters.

Taken By The SEAL by Callie Harper

We are so excited to be sharing Callie Harper’s TAKEN BY THE SEAL with you! Be sure to grab your copy today!

 

About TAKEN BY THE SEAL

Now that I’ve taken her, I’m never letting her go.

Taking Olivia hadn’t been my plan. I’d been prepping my cabin in the woods for my own getaway.

I’m an ex-SEAL, but my instincts are still strong. One glimpse of her innocent, terrified eyes and I know I need to save her. I’d been working with the bad buys, but all it takes is one look at Olivia and I’m back playing the hero, rescuing the damsel in distress.

Now we’re in my remote cabin, hidden away from the world. My little curvy virgin is looking up at me with a mix of innocence, fear, and desire.

The need to possess is burning through my veins. She thinks she needs to escape.

She’s not going to escape.

She’s going to be mine.

KG Logo

Taken By The SEAL by Callie Harper is not your typical SEAL book. Our hero is not your typical book SEAL hero by any stretch of the imagination, and that alone is to be applauded. This was a fun, fresh take on a SEAL romance, and it was enjoyable from beginning until the last page.

Our heroine, Olivia, is a waitress, who barely manages to afford taking college classes online. Her father has a questionable job. Knox is an ex-Navy SEAL who works for a mob boss as a sniper. He is on a job one night when he sees Olivia get grabbed by two guys that he’s watching. He makes a decision to rescue her. In doing so, he has to hide her at a remote cabin. Now, there’s a target on both of their backs!

You’ll love this page turning read as much as I did if you are into bad, boy alphas, and sassy females who can hold their own but still surrender to their alpha’s seduction. Is it hot in here, or it it Knox?

Read an excerpt of TAKEN BY THE SEAL now:

The sound of wood getting chopped and split draws me around to the side of the house. Knox is standing there with an axe, a chopping block and a pile of wood, looking like a poster for All That Is Man. He’s in a T-shirt while I stand there shivering under a blanket. Swat plasters it to his incredible muscles. He’s all hard everywhere I’m soft. I’ve never ben much of an athlete, never on any teams. Cooking and baking are my sports, and they tend to bring out my curves. He’s the exact opposite.

He looks up, wiping the sweat from his brow across his powerful forearm.

“Do you have my phone?” I venture to ask.

He shakes his head no, resting a hand on the blunt end of the axe handle. “GPS tracking. Had to get rid of it.”

“You got rid of it?”

He nods. I sigh in frustration. All around me loom tall trees and the ground’s covered with thick underbrush. Nothing in the vast wilderness remotely resembles a path.

He confirms my suspicions. “We’re the only cabin for ten miles in any direction. No people, just wolves, pumas and black bears.”

“Nice.” Great mobster hangout he has here. Wait, aren’t Chicago mobsters big on city stuff, like living and playing in the city where they work? “Why do you have a cabin all the way out here if you work for the mob?”

He exhales heavy, like I’ve asked him a question with a complicated answer. But he doesn’t give one. He doesn’t say a thing.

Studying his features, I try to read him because, really, who the hell is this man? He saves me, but kidnaps me. He ties me up, but tells me it’s to keep me safe. He touches me, but only after I’ve practically humped him first.

I look away, frustrated. I can’t read him at all, and it’s not just because the sunlight gleaming on his massive biceps is more than a little distracting. The man has a poker face.

“If you work for the mob,” I try again, “why did you take me away from some other mob guys?”

He scratches his temple, then admits, “I didn’t like what they had planned.”

“So you weren’t part of the plan to drug and kidnap me?”

“Not exactly.”

“Why did you bring me here?”

“To keep you safe.”

Beautiful Beast by Aubrey Irons

Beautiful Beast Ebook Cover

Title: Beautiful Beast
Author: Aubrey Irons
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 17, 2017
Blurb

Anastasia:

Here’s the first thing you should know: this is not a fairytale. Happily-ever-afters are fables, and Prince Charming is a sweet little lie.
I know all this because he taught me.
Once upon a lifetime ago, the rich, arrogant, sinfully gorgeous, and tragically broken dark prince of the Hamptons was my tormentor. My darkness, my shameful attraction, my all-consuming, forbidden temptation.
I hate Sebastian Crown because nine years ago, for one night, I was stupid enough to think I loved him. And I’ve been paying for it ever since.
Except now, he needs me to help him save his empire.
…And he’s not taking no for answer.

Bastian:

She’s my nemesis. My addiction. My weakness.
My obsession.
I used to tell myself I hated Anastasia Bell – for being poor, for not worshipping the ground I walked on, for looking at me like she pitied me for being me.
When the rest of my world always told me yes, she was the ever-provoking no.
She thinks I’m a monster – a tragic, fucked-up, broken beast.

She doesn’t know the half of it.
Because she can’t begin to know the crimes of my past, or imagine the things I’ve done to her behind the scenes since she left this place.
Years ago, I thought breaking her would fix me.
I was wrong.
Now I’ve got her in my sights again, and this time, I won’t be letting her go. Even if it means we both go down in flames…

KG Logo

I have to say it. I find the romance market completely oversaturated with fairy tale remakes, which kind of drives me nuts. My annoyance is followed by the secret baby romance, (and all of the many baby-centric romances, makes me evil, I know!) the lovers-to-friends, billionaire takes a virgin, followed closely by anything virgin. So, what I’m trying to get across is that it takes a really special book for me to choose one of these, hence Beautiful Beast.

We have Sebastian Crown, our beast of the tale. He’s a total jerk. 9 years earlier, he humiliated and broke Anastasia Bell and ran her out-of-town. Now, she’s back, and it’s not for the reason she thinks.

Bastian is the rich guy living in a castle and Ana is the poor gardener’s daughter who Bastian lives to torment. But he has his reasons for running her out-of-town, and he has her reasons for bringing her back. Both of them are broken, can Bastien be saved?

I really enjoyed this take on Beauty and the Beast. Bastian is a complete and total jerk, but through going back and forth from when they first meet at childhood to the present, we get to see just what drives Bastian’s behavior. A wonderfully sexy take on the classic fairy tale! And Hello! Just LOOK at who is on the cover! Mmm I’m having a meltdown myself!

About 1001 Dark Nights: Bundle Ten:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Tessa Bailey, Lexi Blake, Larissa Ione, Laurelin Paige, and introducing Jenna Jacob and Sierra Simone.

 

Six Dark Tales. Six Sensual Stories. Six Page Turners.

 

ROUGH RHYTHM: A Made In Jersey Novella by Tessa Bailey
Band manager James Brandon never expected to find the satisfaction he’d been chasing, let alone stumble upon it in some sleazy Hollywood meat market. Yet the girl’s quiet pride spoke to him from across the bar. But after losing the grip on his dark desires that one fateful night, James has spent the last four years atoning for letting her down. Rock band drummer Lita Regina has had enough of James’s guilt. She wants the explosive man she met that night in Hollywood. And she’ll stop at nothing to revive him.

DEVOTED: A Masters and Mercenaries Novella by Lexi Blake
Amy Slaten has devoted her life to Slaten Industries. After ousting her corrupt father and taking over the CEO role, she thought she could relax and enjoy taking her company to the next level. But an old business rivalry rears its ugly head. When Flynn Adler realizes the woman he’s falling for is none other than the CEO of the firm he needs to take down, he has to make a choice. Does he take care of the woman he’s falling in love with or the business he’s worked a lifetime to build?

Z: A Demonica Novella by Larissa Ione
Zhubaal has spent decades searching for the angel he loved and lost nearly a century ago. Not even her death can keep him from trying to find her. But as time passes, he’s losing hope… As an emim, Vex has always felt like a second-class citizen. But if she manages to secure a deal with the Grim Reaper she will have earned her place in the world. The only obstacle in the way of her plan is a sexy hardass called Z. Soon it becomes clear that they have a powerful connection rooted in the past…

FALLING UNDER YOU: A Fixed Trilogy Novella by Laurelin Paige
Norma Anders has always prided herself on her intelligence and determination. She climbed out of poverty, put herself through school and is now a chief financial advisor at Pierce Industries. She’s certainly a woman who won’t be topped. Not in business anyway. But she’s pretty sure she’d like to be topped in the bedroom. Unfortunately most men see independence and ambition in a woman and they run. Then the most unlikely candidate steps up. Boyd, her much-too-young and oh-so-hot assistant surprises her one night with bold suggestions and an authoritative demeanor he’s never shown her in the office.

CRAVING HIS COMMAND: A Doms of Genesis Novella by Jenna Jacob
Mercy O’Connor—known as Symoné at Club Genesis—craves the chance to experience true surrender. The only problem is, she’s set her sights on sexy, commanding Sir Justice, who studies her with his dissecting, arousing stare…but never offers to show her his ropes. If Kellan Graham let himself believe in love at first sight, Symoné would own his heart. After having his life ripped apart, he’s spent years inventing ways to resist simple lust, but each time this beautiful submissive turns her pleading eyes to him, she ignites a complicated conflagration of desire Kellan can’t fight.

AMERICAN QUEEN by Sierra Simone
It starts with a stolen kiss under an English sky, and it ends with a walk down the aisle. It starts with the President sending his best friend to woo me on his behalf, and it ends with my heart split in two. It starts with buried secrets and dangerous desires…and ends with the three of us bound together with a hateful love sharper than any barbed wire.

Every Dark Nights tale is breathtakingly sexy and magically romantic.

KG Logo

I was totally excited when I saw that this bundle was being released, first because it was from the 1001 Dark Nights franchise. I can’t begin to tell you how many of their novellas I have purchased over the years since the concept was introduced. So many of my favorite authors have written stories for them…Cherise Sinclair, Lexi Blake, Jenna Jacob, Lara Adrian, Shayla Black, and a whole bunch more.

2 of my favorites are in this very bundle, so I had to have this! Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries novella, Devoted and Jenna Jacob’s Doms of Genesis novella, Craving His Command.

Rough Rhythm by Tessa Bailey was a 3 star read for me. While I liked James, I had some issues with the heroine and her constant negative behavior. Maybe it’s because I’m a brat? But it was a bit much.

Z a Demonica Novella by Larissa Ione was a definite 5 star and was just as dark and juicy as the rest of her Demonica series!

Falling Under You by Laurelin Paige. The oh so hot and dominant younger assistant meets the older boss woman who craves submission in the bedroom? Right up my alley and gets 4.5 stars!

American Queen by Sierra Simone is a new author for me, but a president, his bestie and a woman they woo? Hot menage! This was a solid 4 stars!

This brings us to Lexi’s Devoted. LOVED IT! Take 2 company owners, both up against each other. But one is a dom who is determined to find out if his trainee sub, Amy Slaten, is playing him for her company’s sake, or is she really the sassy subbie she appears to be. But Amy has no clue that the dom she’s been falling for is really the CEO of the company set to take her over. So what really happens? So much hotness!

Last, but certainly not least comes Craving His Command, a Doms of Genesis novella and one of my favorites in the series. It is one of the few that are written in third person. (sorry Jenna <g>) I’m not a huge fan of first person, so though I LOVE this series, this one is a huge favorite of mine. Plus, I love Sir Justice and anything that has Kerr getting a hurt on gives me a happy feeling.

Overall, this is one of the best compilations that 1001 Dark Nights has put together, though I love them all!

5 Super Sexy Summer Stars!

About the 1001 Dark Nights: Bundle Ten Authors-

 

Tessa Bailey Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eight years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

Then Cameron Stanton is my Santa Claus.

I know because I met Gods gift to women in Vegas,

I pretended he was my husband to get rid of another man.

He took our fake marriage seriously and it became his
personal goal to consummate.

He spoke to me in French and I lied to him in German.

His laughter was addictive.
But I thought what happens in Vegas would stay in Vegas.
Until it didn’t.

Dr. Stanton turned up where I least expected and my lies came back to haunt me.

The attraction is palpable.

The secrets unchangeable.

I need him more than air.

This is my first book by this author and it was an okay read for me. It was a pretty long book, and I will admit I had lost interest at some parts because it was not quite the book I was expecting. It was also a secret baby book, and man oh man do I seriously dislike them. I just don’t buy, “The condom broke” “My contraceptive shot failed..” and so on. There is the morning after pill. Secret babies are an author’s plot device most of the time. *chuckling* I could just go on. Plus, I just didn’t get the feels for this guy. He’s very hot and cold with our heroine, very judgemental. And seriously? Who is he to say she can’t work in a brothel? He attends the very same one as a patron.
I did find the writing to be excellent and I loved her character a lot! Her BFF definitely deserves a book, especially with the hot neighbor, and the ladies of the brothel, and Matt, all seem to have some backstories that could definitely use exploring. I just wasn’t wild over Cameron. Maybe it’s because I’m an ex-RN and I’ve seen the type all too often.

Excerpt
Vegas
1OAK
Nightclub
I frown as
the man covered in perspiration clings to me once more, oh for heavens sake.
“Do you mind?” I frown as I rip my arm from his grip. The music is pumping and I
am waiting at the bar.
“Not at
all.” He slurs.
Oh god, my
eyes flick over to my group of friends and they all smile and raise their
glasses to me in jest. Damn them. This hens weekend away is reminding me why I
am eternally single. I fake a smile, bitches.
“I mean it
baby, let’s dance.”
I roll my
eyes. “I can’t, I’m waiting for someone, you should probably run along.”
“Who?” he
asks. Oh give up, pushy bastard.
A tall and
dark haired good looking guy walks past and I grab him by the arm, he frowns as
he turns back toward us. “This guy. “I smirk.
The creepy
guy frowns and curls his lip at his competition.
My eyes
scan up and down the guy I have just grabbed, oh, he’s gorgeous. I planned that
well.
The guy
raises an eyebrow in question as his eyes flick between us.
“This is my
husband.” I smile as I link my arm through his. He looks like a nice guy, I’m
sure he will save me.
The tall
guy raises an eyebrow in surprise and smiles. “And you are my …….wife?” He
questions as his eyes flick between me and them man.
I nod.
“Aha.” Oh boy, don’t blow my cover.
Tall dark
and handsome turns his gaze onto the man before us as he snakes his arm around
my waist. “You have met my gorgeous wife then?”
I narrow my
eyes as I listen to his voice, I think he’s Australian.
The creepy
guy narrows his eyes. “You don’t know him.” He sneers. “I don’t believe you.”
Tall dark
and handsome smirks and leans over and grabs the back of my head and pulls me
towards him, his tongue rims my lips and he sucks on my mouth, his tongue takes
no prisoners as it swipes deep into my mouth….what the frigging hell? His hand
drops to my behind and he squeezes the cheek in his hand. Oh my god, this was
not in the brochure.
He pulls
away and licks his lips as his eyes drop to my breasts and back up to my face.
I fake a
smile as my mind goes totally blank. “Huh.” My eyes flick back to the other guy
as I lick my lips, holy crap. What kind of kiss was that? “Umm.”
Tall dark
and handsome takes my hand in his. “Fuck off mate, she’s with me.” He then pulls
me by the hand through the crowd, what, wait, where are we going? My eyes flick
over to my friends who are all high fiving each other over my random kiss with
Mr Holy Hot. Should I just pull out of his grip? What the hell for, this guy is
freaking delicious. Oh shit, we arrive over to his group of friends and he puts
his arm around my waist and pulls my body close to his.
“Boys.” He
acknowledges his large group of friends. “You will be pleased to know I just
got married en route from the bar. Please meet my new wife.”
Their eyes
meet and they all shake their heads and laugh. “Hello.” They all smile. “Nice
to meet you.” One man replies as he shakes my hand.
  I smirk as his hand tightens around my waist.
“About
time.” One guy says as he shakes his hand. “Congratulations mate, what’s your
wife’s name?”
His eyes
flick to me and he smiles sexily again. “Blossom.”
 I laugh out loud. “Blossom?”
 His friends all look me up and down and smile
and then go back to their conversation as if this is a common occurrence.
His eyes
drop to my breasts again.
“My eyes
are up here.” I reply, he can’t even pretend not to stare.
He picks up
his beer and drinks it down. “So?”
I frown, of
all the nerve. “So, you keep looking at my boobs.”
“You
noticed?”
My mouth
drops open in. “Well, I’m not imaging it.”
He smirks
as he sips his beer. “Good idea, that’s exactly what I’m doing.”
His friend
returns with a tray of drinks. “Murph.” He calls. “Come meet Bloss.”
His friend
raises his eyebrows. “Hello.” He smiles as he shakes my hand and passes me a
drink. “Thank you.” I smile gratefully. My eyes flick between the six men he is
with.  These guys are all gorgeous…..and
cultured. Expensive suits and clothes. My eyes flick back to my friends on the other
side of the bar and I bite my bottom lip, I will just have this drink and then
I will go back over to them, can’t hurt to have one drink.
His friend
turns back to the other men and tall dark and handsome’s eyes drop to my
breasts again.
“What are
you doing?” I shake my head.
“Imagining.”
I raise a
brow. “Imagining what?”
“How those
tits are going to look around my cock tonight while I fuck them.”
My mouth
drops open in shock.
He smiles a
slow sexy smile. “You were safer with the other guy.”
My eyes
hold his. I have no words.
“Because
unlike him, I will be able to get you to do what I want to do. And tonight I
want to fuck those big juicy tits of yours.”
My brain
misfires as I get a visual of him naked and above me sliding his cock between
my…… it’s been too long. “That’s not happening.” I stammer.
He shuffles
around in his suit coat pocket and pulls out a fifty-dollar note. “Do you want
to place a bet on it?”
“What an
over confident prick you are.” I shake my head, never have I had such a pick up
line used on me. “And yes.” I snatch the fifty dollars from his hand.

“I will bet Fifty dollars on me not
having your cock between my boobs tonight.”

He winks
and clinks his glass with mine as he raises a sexy brow. “Thank you, I will
take that as a personal challenge.”
I shake my
head as I sip my drink. “Does that ridiculous pick up line work on many women?”
He smiles
and winks cheekily. “You would be surprised.”
I smirk,
there is something honest about this guy. He isn’t pretending to be someone he
is not.
It’s
disarming.
His hand
drops to my behind again and he rubs it as he smiles to himself as he looks me
up and down.
I raise a
brow. “You can stop looking at me like I’m your next fuck, there will be no
physical activity between us at all tonight. I am not that kind of girl.”
He leans
over and kisses me again. “Stop talking.” He smiles into my lips. “You are only
making the challenge so much sweeter to achieve. I am a goal orientated man you
know.”
“Happy
wife, happy life.” I reply sarcastically.
“Blossom,
do you really think that I couldn’t make you happy as my wife if that were my
goal?” He raises his brow in question.
I laugh out
loud. “Shut up. You freak. Who says this shit and gets away with it?”
He laughs
out loud as his hands drop to my behind again.
Two hours
and six cocktails later.
The sight
of his huge cock sliding up and down between my breasts is driving me crazy. We
are back in his room, unable to control the attraction, acting like animals.
This is casual sex at its absolute finest. This guy is gorgeous, intelligent,
funny and as sexy as fuck. Not to mention hung like a bloody horse. I’ve died
and gone to Vegas Heaven. His knees are on either side of my body as he kneels
over me. Large dark brown eyes stare down at me and I arch my back unable to
hold the urge to fuck. How did he get me here? Doing this.
I’m not
this kind of girl but holy hell he makes being bad so damn fun.
He bends
and kisses me, his tongue seductively dancing with mine. “You owe me fifty
bucks.” He smiles into my lips.
I laugh out
loud. “Bastard.”
“Time to
work off your debt.” He whispers as he pushes his cock forward through my
breasts, his eyes close in pleasure. His hands encasing my breasts around his
cock. “You have the best fucking tits I have ever seen.” He growls.
My eyes
roll back in my head. God this is payment enough, what could be better than
this visual sensation?
He starts
to really pound my chest until the bed starts to rock and my sex clenches in
pleasure. Holy fuck I need this dick inside me now.
I laugh out
loud, this is unbelievable. How in the hell did this guy get me back to his
room and owing him fifty dollars for the privilege?
He smiles
sexily as his mouth hangs slack in arousal. “
Arrêter de rire ou je remplirai votre bouche
avec ma bite.” He whispers as he looks down at me.
(Translation…..Stop
laughing or I will fill your mouth with my cock.”
Am
unexpected thrill runs through me and I reply. “Je pourrais prendre tout
cela.”  (Translation…I could take it
all.)
His eyebrow
raises sexily in surprise. “Tu parle français?” (Translation…You speak
French?”) He asks as he rolls a condom on.
I grab the
back of his head bring it to mine. “Je baise en français trop.” (Translation…I
fuck in French too.) I whisper into his lips.
His mouth
ravages mine and I feel his hard length slide between my wet lips, back and
forth he glides his length. I smile, lets up the anti. “Obwohl, wenn ich in
Deutsch ficken ist, wenn Im in meinem besten.” I whisper as my arousal hits a
fever pitch. (Translation…. although, when I fuck in German is when I’m at my best.”
He laughs
out loud into my mouth and lifts my legs over his shoulder as he impales me in
one hard slam. We stay still and our eyes both close in pleasure.
 Holy fuck.
This guy is
good….and huge.
“Sie
sollten sehen, was Sie sagen, deutsch meine Bruchstelle ist.” He whispers as he
pulls out and slides home again. (Translation…You should watch what you say,
German is my breaking point.”
My back
arches off the bed, oh god, this is too good. His brain is as sharp as his
body, I don’t know anyone else Bilingual and this is blowing my freaking mind.
“Ich wollte deinen Schwanz in den Mund” I breath. (Translation…I wanted your
cock in my mouth.”
He pulls
out and immediately is above me as he feeds his cock into my open mouth, I
taste my own salty arousal. Shit. This guy is off the fucking hook. “Votre
souhait est ma commande ma chère femme.” (Translation…Your wish is my command
my dear wife.”
I smile
around the large penis as he slides it down my throat and I feel my sex start
to pulse. “Je voudrais que vous souffler dans ma bouche. Si vous étiez vraiment
mon mari je boirai vers le bas” (Translation…. I wish you could blow in my
mouth. If I was really your wife, I would drink it down.”
He shakes
his head and smiles sexily down at me as he pushes the hair back from my
forehead. “Fuck, moi aussi. Vous soufflez mon putain de l’esprit ici” He
whispers through blanket thick arousal. (Translation…. Fuck, so do I. You are
blowing my fucking mind here.)
I smile as
I flick my tongue over the end of him, his knees are on either side of my head
and his body is moving fluently in and out of my mouth. His dark eyes watch me
struggle to take him all.
This man
has the body of a god and the mind of an angel.
I am in
heaven.
“Je dois te
goûter.” (Translation…I need to taste you.” He growls as he pulls out of my
mouth, he drops to between my legs and his tongue swipes through my swollen
flesh.
Fuck. My
knees try to close by themselves as they struggle to gain control of the senses
overload. He pushes them back to the mattress aggressively as his tongue really
takes charge, licking and tasting all that I have.
“How do I
taste?” I whisper as my hands drop to the back of his head.
He groans
into me as his eyes close in pleasure, his tongue circles and swipes and I feel
myself start to quiver. Oh god, It’s been too long. I’m going to come already.
“Come.” He
breathes into me. “I want you to come on my tongue. Give me some cream Bloss
Bomb.”
Holy fuck,
this guy is frying my brain. He bites my clitoris and I shudder into him and he
groans in pleasure. I grab the back of his head to try and still him. “Stop.” I
pant, this is too much. I am too sensitive. He sucks deeper and his eyes roll
back in his head. “You are one hot fuck.” He growls into me as he laps it all
up. He climbs up and over me and slides home in one fell movement.
I frown at
the ceiling as my hand runs though his messy curls, I can hardly breathe. He’s
so big.
He leans
back onto his knees and holds my legs into the air as his eyes drop to my sex
and he watches my body struggle to take his large muscle. His thumb gently
circles over my clitoris, knowing full well that will release me and allow his
entry.
He’s
experienced and he knows how to loosen a women straight up
I watch him
as I pant, somewhere in between disbelief, denial and utter ecstasy. I didn’t
know that sex could be like this. I haven’t had this before…I thought I had
good sex…but now I have had this.
I realise
not.
He gently
kisses my ankle that is next to his ear and he smiles sexily down at me. My
eyes hold his for an extended moment and a frown crosses his face as I hold my
breath. His hand gently brushes my hair from my face and he runs his thumb over
my bottom lip
God, I
close my eyes to block him out. This fucking guy is ridiculous.
“Regarde
moi.” (Translation…Look at me.”) He whispers.
I force my
eyes to open and drag them to meet his.
“Vous êtes
la plus belle femme putain j’ai jamais été avec.” He whispers softly.
(Translation…. You are the most beautiful fucking woman I have ever been with.)
He drops
his body to mine and his lips dust mine with reverence, we kiss for an extended
time as if forgetting that his body is still inside mine. An intimacy that is
both beautiful as it is petrifying. Slow, gentle and tender.
Stop it. You don’t even know him and this is a one-
night stand.
“Cesser
d’être molle et baise-moi.” I whisper. (Translation…stop being mushy and fuck
me.)
He smiles
into my lips. “That’s a first.” He smirks as he starts to slowly pump me.
“What do
you mean?” I pant.
“Nobody has
ever said that to me before.”
I laugh out
loud as he pulls out and slams back into me knocking the air from my lungs. He
pumps me hard again. “And if I want to be mushy with my wife I have the fucking
right to be.”
I laugh as
he lifts my legs over his shoulders again and really lets me have it. His knees
are wide to give him traction and I can see every muscle in his stomach ripple
as he moves. Strong punishing hits as the bed hits the wall with force.
Oh, he won’t
be easy to forget. My body starts to quiver again and he smiles darkly sensing
my orgasms arrival. He knows his way around a woman’s body.
Damn.
Of course he does.
Our bodies
are covered in a sheen of perspiration and I close my eyes to try and stop the
orgasm, I want this to last.
I need this
to last.
“I don’t
want to come.” He pants.
“Me
neither.” I breathe as I pull him back to my lips. “Promise me we will do this
again in a minute.”
He laughs
into my lips. “We can do this all night Bloss.”

I smile as he lifts my behind with his hand to really hit the end of me and I
cry out as my body contracts around his large muscle.

“Fuck
yeah.” He calls as his head throws forward and he comes in a rush.
We stay
still, both gasping for air. Both wet with perspiration.
Jesus
Christ…. What the hell was that?
His lips
meet mine and he kisses me softly as he cups my jaw in his hand. I smile into
his lips and he kisses me tenderly again. “What an excellent wife you are.”
I laugh out
loud and he rolls us so that I am on top of his large body. I rest my head
against his chest as I try to catch my breath.
His lips
dust my forehead. “Don’t bother going to sleep.” His hand drops to between my
legs and he spreads them so that they hang over each side of his large body, he
starts to work me again, his three large fingers slide into my wet swollen
flesh. “That was the entrée and this is a ten course meal.”
Four hours
and four showers later I lie in the semi darkened room with my said husband,
the light is just peeking through the crack in the drapes. My head is on his
chest and his large muscular arms are around me. The night has been
unbelievable to say the least.
We have
devoured each other and if he wasn’t out of condoms…..we probably still would
be. I think we must have used a whole box.
“Where do
you live?” He asks.
“New York.”
I breathe. I cringe when I hear my husky voice…a symptomatic problem from lasts
nights Tequila and giving head activities no doubt. “Where do you live?” I ask.
“Texas.
Originally from Australia.”
I smile and
gently kiss his chest and smile in contentment. “I had a good wedding night.”
He kisses
my forehead. “Me too.” I feel his lips smile against my skin. “You probably
wont be walking for a while.”
I giggle
into his chest. “Actually, can you organize a wheel chair to get me back to my
room please?”
He smiles.
“I would, but I will be using it myself.”
We lie in
comfortable silence for a while longer. His hand runs back and forth over my
behind as if memorizing every inch, I smile. “Are you using the theorem of
calculus to measure my ass?”
He laughs
out loud and rolls me onto my back and holds my hands above my head. “Your mind
is a fucking turn on.” He breathes against my lips as his tongue gently
explores my mouth.
I just
can’t get my fill of this guy. “I could say the same thing. I have never had
bilingual sex before.” I smile. Hell, most guys I have slept with can’t even
speak English to me when we have sex…let alone drop in and out of three
languages.
He smiles
into my lips as he bites the bottom one and pulls it toward him. “Moi non plus,
je peux être accro.” (Translation…Me neither, I may be addicted.”)
I have
always had a love of languages, it was my stress reliever when I was in high
school and my parents were divorcing. I would lock myself in my bedroom and
listen to language tapes through headphones so I couldn’t hear them fighting.
Looking back……all those hours alone in my room spent teaching myself was worth
it just to experience the night I had with him. He challenged me…. but I
challenged him right back and I know I surprised him…. hell, I surprised
myself.
It was
empowering to be able to keep up with such an obviously intelligent man. Our
eyes lock and something clicks into place as I feel a flutter deep in my
stomach.
“What do
you do for work?” I ask to change the subject.
He lies
naked on his side next to me and rubs his hand over my breast and squeezes it
hard. “I’m a mechanic.”
I bite my
lip to stifle my smile, he has softer hands than me. No way in hell is he a
mechanic.
So we are playing that game are we?
“What do
you do?” He asks.
“I work in
an ice-cream shop.”
He can’t
hide his smile. “You are a dreadful liar, there is no way in hell you serve
ice-cream.”
I laugh out
loud. “You lied first.”
He laughs
as his lips drop to my nipple and he takes it in his mouth. “Touché.” He
smirks.
“What do
you think I do?” I ask.
He narrows
his eyes as he thinks. “Your body tells me you are a gym instructor but your
mind tells me you are a scientist?”
I smile as
I bring his lips down to meet mine. “I got to go.” I sit up.
He frowns
and leans up onto his elbow. “What? Where are you going?”
I stand up
and his eyes drop down my body. “New York.” I answer.
He frowns
again. “You are going home? Today?”
I nod as I
walk around his room picking up my clothes. “Aha.” I pick up my phone and check
the time. “I fly out in three hours. I got to get a move on.”
His face
drops. “But.”
I pick up
my bra and put it on. “But what?”
“I wanted
to see you again.” He replies as he watches me dress.
I smile and
lean over the bed to kiss his gorgeous lips. “Hmm.” I smile into them. “Sorry.
Hens weekend is over.”
He leans up
and grabs me and pulls me back on top of him. “Stay another night.” He breathes
into my lips.
I smile,
god I wish. He kisses me again.
“I already
have my plane ticket for today.” I breathe.
“I will buy
you another plane ticket for tomorrow.” He offers.
For a brief
moment I consider it.
“I am here
until tomorrow.” He replies. “We could spend another night together.” He smiles
sexily.
Could I?
Who am I
kidding we don’t even know each others names and he just lied straight out and
told me he was a mechanic and besides, I’m totally out of money. I wouldn’t
even be able to pay for my dinner tonight. Damn it.  “Sorry hubby.” I stand and put my black lacy
panties back on as he lays watching me. “This is where our marriage ends.”
He puts
both hands behind his head as he lays back down and his eyes hold mine and he
smiles broadly.
My face
mirrors his. “What?” I smile.
“I kind of
like being married to you.”
I widen my
eyes at him in jest.
“I know.
Shocking. Isn’t it?” He smirks.
I pull my
dress over my shoulders and slink into it.
“Come back
to bed.” He frowns. “I’m not finished with you.”
I sit on
the bed and kiss him once more. “I’m not finished with you either, but I have
to go.”
He frowns
and gets begrudgingly out of bed and my eyes drop down his naked body. He is
one hell of a fine specimen. Tall, athletic, muscular broad chest with a
scattering of dark hair. His hair is dark brown with a little bit of length on
the top allowing it to have a just fucked messy look. His eyes are dark brown
and he has a dark two- day growth going on. My eyes drop lower to the dark
short well kept pubic hair that encases the grand jewels. The man is well
endowed and hell. He knows it. I can imagine that he has every woman he sleeps
with fall madly in love with him.
He has
money. He smells of it, the clothes he had on last night. The Rolex watch. The
well dressed large group of men he was with. Hell I think his shoes alone would
have cost a couple of grand. This room is luxury, it’s not even a room, it’s a
suite…. incomparable to my shitty shared room with two single beds next to each
other that me and two girlfriends are sharing because we have no money. He
pulls on a pair of shorts and a t-shirt. “Can I take you out for breakfast?” He
asks.
I glance
down at myself, ugg I look abysmal and I fake a smile. “No. But thank you.”
He frowns
as he pulls me into him again. “Are you trying to get away from me?”
I smile
into his lips. “No. I just got to go.”
His lips
linger on mine, oh to hell with budget. Stay and fuck this guy stupid. I pull
out of his grip and pick up my handbag.
“Hang a sec
until I get some shoes on and I will walk you to your room.” He disappears into
the bathroom. I quickly take out fifty dollars and put it on his bedside table
and scribble on the hotel notepad next to his phone.
  
Whoever said Gambling never pays,
Has never lost to you
Xx
  
I needed
this money.…but, a bet is a bet.
He won it
fair and square.
He fucked
my tits until they were chafe, just like he said he would.
He exits
the bathroom. “You ready?”
I nod and
smile as I follow him out the door.
“Morning.”
He replies to the man standing next to his door in a suit. “Morning.” The man
replies.
I frown,
who is that? I glance around at all of the doors in the surrounding hallway
have men in suits outside every room. He takes my hand in his and we start
walking down the corridor. “Who are they?” I whisper.
“Security.”
He replies casually as he strides along.
I frown as
I nearly have to run to keep up with him. “What for?” I whisper.
“Oh. My
brother is here.” He hesitates for a moment. “He has money.” He rolls his eyes.
“I forget they are even with us I am so used to it.”
“Oh.” I
frown, that’s random. I turn back and see one of the men following us down the
corridor. “He’s following us.” I whisper.
He smirks
down at me as he kisses my hand and keeps walking. “Relax. Ignore him.”
I frown as
my eyes flick to the man behind us. “Oh, okay.”
We get to
the lift and I have to take out my key card to see where my room is again.
“We will be
fine.” He tells the security guy before we enter the lift. The guy nods and
stays on the floor we came from.
We get into
the crowded elevator and stand at the front, I smirk up at him as he holds my
hand. “I can’t believe you are ditching me on our first day of marriage.” He
says loudly so everyone can hear.
My eyes
widen in shock, what’s he doing?
“So you
just used me and abused me all night, is that it?” He asks in an over
exaggerated voice. I hear a lady behind us gasp in shock and the other people
all pretend to not listen.
I smirk,
bastard, two can play this game. “Yeah well. What happens in Vegas stays in
Vegas and you were totally shit in bed by the way.” I reply dryly.
“What about
our kids?” He asks, acting offended.
I drop my
head to hide my smile, oh this guy is something else.
“Your kids
are bastards, one of your other wives can bring them up. I have had enough I’m
going back to prostitution.” I reply.
“Just don’t
give anyone anal. You know that asshole is mine.” He frowns acting serious.
I widen my
eyes at him. He did not just say that out loud.
“Oh my
god.” The lady behind us whispers.
“Sshh.” Her
husband whispers.
He drops
his head to stop himself from laughing and he squeezes my hand in his, I
squeeze it back as I bite my bottom lip.
The lift
doors open and he walks out and strides down the hall toward my room. “What
number?” He asks.
“322.” I
smirk.
We continue
walking until we get to my room and I turn toward him.
“This is
your room.” He replies.
“Yep.” I
smile, oh I don’t want to go in. I do want to stay with him another night.
He takes
out his phone. “Can I have your number?” He asks.
I raise a
brow. “Why?”
“So I can
sell it to the highest bidder, why do you think?” He replies dryly.
I smile. “I
live in New York you know.” I reply.
“Yes I am
coming to New York next weekend.” He replies.
“Since
when?” I frown.
“Since
now.” He smiles as he kisses my lips.
His tongue
rims my lips. “donnez-moi votre numéro avant que je vous traîne retourner dans
ma chamber.” (Translation…give me your number before I drag you back to my
room.)
I kiss his
lips and smile. Could this guy be any more fun?
He takes
out his phone and types the name wife into the contact list.
 I laugh. “You can’t save me as wife?”
“Who says?”
“Me.”
He grabs my
behind and pushes me up against the door. “While you are in Vegas you are my
wife and if I want to fuck you up against the door here. I can.” He growls into
my neck,
I laugh
into his shoulder as I push him away, I take his phone and type in my number
and he smiles and his lips linger on mine.
“I’m coming
to New York next weekend and getting a hotel for us. Where do you want to
stay?”
I laugh.
“You are crazy.”
“And you
are fucking addictive.” He smiles into my cheek as he grips me tight.
We laugh
into one last lingering kiss and his lips drop softly to my neck.
“Goodbye my
beautiful wife.” He whispers as his eyes search mine.
I feel my
heart somersault in my chest. “Goodbye.” I smile softly.
He starts
walking up the hallway backward as he points at me. “I will see you next
weekend?”
I smirk as
I cross my arms in front of me as I watch him walk backwards up the hall.
“Don’t
bother packing clothes because you wont be needing any.” He calls,
I smirk
again and shake my head, god, he’s a bona-fide sex maniac.
A porter
walks past and he calls out to him. “Excuse me, do you have any wheelchairs
available.”
I cover my
mouth to hide my giggle. He wouldn’t?
The porter
looks down at his legs, wondering what is wrong with him to need a wheelchair.
“Oh, its
not my legs, I have a very sore dick.” He points to his groin. “Hard night.”
The porter
frowns as he looks at his crotch.
I burst out
laughing and they both turn to look at me. With an embarrassed wave I walk into
my bedroom and close the door. I shake my head in disbelief at the crazy events
that have panned out over the last twenty- four hours. I lean against the back
of the closed door with a broad smile.
Wow.
What an unexpected
night.
What an
unexpected man.

Synopsis

A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new romance from USA Today bestselling author Avery Flynn.

Brains and a badass attitude. That’s all troublemaker Leah Camacho took with her when she left Catfish Creek. She’d promised herself she’d never go back, but when the invite to her tenth high school reunion arrived along with the chance to show everyone who doubted her what a success she’s made of herself, she couldn’t resist. However, when she discovers a 15-carat, stolen diamond in her rental car’s glove box, there’s only one man she can turn to for help—the same sexy, stubborn domineering man who’d smashed her heart all those years ago.

Sheriff Drew Jackson knew a long time ago that Leah Camacho was nothing but trouble and has sworn to never get caught up in her again—no matter how damn sexy she is or how badly he’d failed to forget her. But, when the woman who test drove his heart right into a concrete wall rolls into Catfish Creek with some serious bad guys on her tail, it’s up to him to keep her safe—even if that means guarding her hot bod 24/7 without giving into temptation or losing his mind.

Trouble by Avery Flynn is one of the books in the Bad Boy Homecoming Series that I have so recently become addicted to. And what’s not to be addicted to? We have Avery, then there is Carrie Ann Ryan, Katee Robert, Kennedy Layne (Honor, for which I have reviewed and loved!!), and Stacey Kennedy! Just these ladies names alone would prompt me to read a series, even if it was about…hmmm making cookies! But I digress, it’s all about coming home to tiny Catfish Creek for a high school reunion.

Trouble is a tie-in with her series B-Squad, (which I am so going to get my hands on! Look for the reviews soon!) Leah Camacho is coming home for her high school reunion, but she ends up bringing home trouble. That’s nothing new for Leah, and sexy town sheriff Drew Jackson is used to Leah’s shenannigan’s. This time, a stolen diamond and a couple of rhinestone cowboys come with her.

Drew only has a few days left of being sheriff and having to deal with the craziness of Catfish Creek, does he want to get involved with the woman he once left behind that was nothing but trouble? Will the B-Squad get involved? You’ll want to grab up this book and find out! I absolutely loved this book! The sex scenes were oh-so-smoking hot that they were right off the hotness meter! Drew sure does know how to use a set of handcuffs! I’m most certainly going out and getting Avery’s B-Squad books after reading this!

Excerpt

Spinning the wheel as he hit the brakes, he came to a stop behind the sports car at an angle that blocked it from reversing. Drew got out of his truck, keeping the open door between him and the other car and flicked open the leather strap on his hip holster that kept his sheriff’s office-issued 9mm locked in place.

“Get out of the vehicle,” he hollered.

The car’s driver’s side door opened wide. The first part of the driver to appear was one shapely leg wearing skin-tight denim punctuated with scuffed up black Doc Martens. Some sort of danger alarm sounded in Drew’s head, but not the kind that warned of bullets or other bodily danger. A woman got out, facing away from him, her hands up and her dark hair a long silky curtain that led his attention straight down her back to the high curve of her ass poured into those jeans. Parts of him that had no place in police business sat up and noticed. Her ass was a testament to the reason why society required women to wear full dresses for so long—because men were weak, lust-addled idiots when it came to asses like the one that looked more than a little familiar to Drew. His gaze snapped back up as his internal alarm went from quiet buzz to all-out blare. He knew that ass, that hair, and those damn boots.

“Turn around,” he ordered.

She did. Her lush mouth—one he knew far too well—was compressed into a tight line, her attention focused on something behind him. Leah Camacho was back and with her always came trouble—for him, for his sanity, and for the part of him that still thought of her at opportune moments in the shower.

“Drew,” she said, making his name sound like a curse and a promise. “Get on the other side of the door.”

Listening to Leah Camacho was the last thing he should be doing, but he did it anyway for reasons he didn’t understand. Just as he rounded the door, an extended cab pickup truck turned the corner. The tires were big, the windows dark, and the speed was slow. As it puttered by, Drew looked it over and mentally confirmed it didn’t belong to any of the usual suspects in Catfish Creek. Of course, the high school reunion was bringing in lots of folks who hadn’t been here in a while. At the corner, the truck sped up, peeling away from the stop sign and taking a hard right back toward the highway.

“Who was that?” he asked, the smell of burnt rubber drifting back toward them.

“No fucking clue but they’ve been on my ass for the past hour,” she said, reaching up and winding her long hair into a knot on the top of her head—the move emphasizing her amazing tits and making Drew’s mouth go dry. “I didn’t realize I’d be stopping on your turf.”

He bet not. After what happened last time they were together, she’d made avoiding him into an art form. However, the fact that he was the law in town, however temporarily, meant avoiding her was an impossibility because wherever Leah Camacho went, trouble was sure to follow. He glanced down at exhibit A.

“What happened to your tire?” he asked.

“No clue,” she said, her voice tight with a lie. “I must have run over something.”

Drew squatted down and took a closer look at the tire. It didn’t have a tear, it was just gone as if it had been a blow out. If Leah had run over something big enough to do that, she would have realized it.

“What in the hell is going on, Leah?”

Honor by Kennedy Layne

Honor eCover v2 v300dpi

 About HONOR

A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new romantic suspense from USA Today Bestselling Author Kennedy Layne.

Derek Spencer hadn’t even bothered to RSVP to his Catfish Creek’s high school reunion. He’d been too busy fighting a war in Afghanistan in his capacity as a Marine and wouldn’t even be in the States during the event. Unfortunately, one emergency phone call from his mother changed everything.

Tessa Daniels had been voted most likely to do everything back in high school. She somehow didn’t think that included acquiring her very own stalker at the relatively young age of twenty-eight. It had stopped being simply annoying after someone broke into her house, invading her privacy. Now, she was actually in fear for her life.

Derek’s mother feels terrible that her son has spent almost every waking hour at the hospital, watching over his recovering father. She sets out–and succeeds–in arranging for Derek and Tessa to attend their high school reunion together. Neither one of them expected sparks to fly or memories of long-lost crushes to emerge, but they are not only faced with their newfound passion…they must also confront the person trying to extinguish their chance to rekindle the flames of past desires.

KG Logo

Honor is one of the books in the Bad Boy Homecoming series by Kennedy Layne. And if the rest of the series is half as good as this one, then it’s worth buying the whole set of 5!

 

Derek Spencer is home to Catfish Creek on emergency leave from the Marines because his dad has had a heart attack His mother is determined that he make her a grandmother after he gets out, so she sets up a date at his 10th high school reunion with high school crush Tessa Daniels, now his father’s second shift nurse.

 

But Tessa’s been the object of a series of incidents that lead her to believe she has a stalker, too bad the police don’t believe her. Derek doesn’t want to get involved, he has a week left before he has to report back to his marine unit. When he runs into Tessa and talks to her, something changes. Will they find out who Tessa’s stalker is and keep her safe before he returns to active duty? And will they both be able to keep it casual?

 

Kennedy Layne has always been an auto-buy for me, and this book is just another reason to keep her that way! I wasn’t too crazy about Derek in the beginning, but I really loved him later in the book. Tessa is just a wonderful character with loads of warmth and one heck of a backbone! A definite keeper!
