Josie's review

 

4.5 stars

 

This 3rd installment in this series is another hit from this author. Honestly this series just keeps better and better. I cannot get enough of this couple. Jett and Brooke are a couple that have consume my mind ever since I got a hold of the Surrender Series. The way the author writes their story just has me so connected to the characters.

 

Their love story hasn’t been easy one. In this book the couple is dealing with secrets, past relationships, murder, threats and trust issues. Jett is a very domineering man. He is at a loss with Brooke’s unwillingness to let him take control. He understands that what she saw can be misconstrued but he loves her and needs to protect her. Brooke loves and has a constant yearning for Jett but seeing him kissing Tiffany and learning the secrets he has been hiding sends her running and fighting him off.

 

Brooke is trying to sort through all the secrets that have come to light and the possibility that Jett has moved on with Tiffany. Pregnant with Jett’s child, Brooke starts to believe that all Jett and she shared was a lie. Brooke this time around, is smarter and starts to search for answers on her own. When she believes Jett is trouble she will risk everything to make sure he is not in danger. Brooke is having a problem trusting and believe in Jett’s love and that is what is keeping her closed off to Jett.

 

“Jett our relationship’s not what bothers me, It’s all the secrets you’re keeping that destroy us, I feel like I can never trust you fully if you keep things hidden from me.”

“I know you have questions. But like I said, It’s complicated. I’m not sure you’d understand and I’m not willing to risk it.”

 

Jett for the first in many years is losing control. Losing the woman and child he loves because of secrets he kept from Brooke. Every time he tried to take control it only pushed Brooke further and further away from him. The worst part it never dawned on him that asking Tiffany for help would make her think there was more than what it was. He doesn’t blame Brooke for her lack of trust but his main goal in life is to keep her and his unborn child safe. Even if it means conceding to the one thing she wants, and that is for him to leave her alone.

 

“I love you, Brooke, I really do., but there is no point in staying if you think I’m capable of hurting you. I’d rather kill myself than see you hurt. I’d rather go away than make you feel unsafe around me.”

 

Even when Jett and Brooke are at odds the connection between the two are felt throughout the pages. Their disagreements are epic, strong and full of love and lust. There is no denying the passion and love they have for one another, the each feed off of it.

 

“You couldn’t control yourself when you thought I was Check.”

“Maybe that’s exactly what I wanted to happen. If there were another guy, I would have done him. REAL GOOD.”

“Just to make one thing clear, you’ll never fu*k another guy. You are mine, Brooke. And I don’t share. Do you, Brooke? Do you love me?”

“I do, sadly. Maybe even too much.”

“Then tell me you’re mine?”

“I’m your.”

“Mine. You’ll always be mine, Brooke. As I will be yours. And that’s a promise.”

 

Someone is out get Brooke. One thing remains true in the constant battle of secrets is that their love just grows stronger. Jett will do anything to protect Brooke and his child and is willing to bring down anyone who dares to try to hurt them and keep them from him. As usual, the author does an amazing job with taking readers into Jett and Brooke’s life. It is exciting, passionate and steamy. I don’t think I will ever get tired of reading about these two characters and their journey. The last installment to Jett and Brooke’s journey comes out sometime in the spring and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

A Million Tiny Pieces by Nicole Edwards Blog Tour & Giveaway

 

 

Title: A Million Tiny Pieces

Author: Nicole Edwards

Genre: Adult, Erotic Ménage Romance

Release Date: January 20, 2015

 

 

Mia Cantrell is happy to be rid of her lying, cheating, ex-husband. With her divorce final, Mia is moving on, grasping the reins of life once more. She’s learning to deal with the shattered remains while putting one foot in front of the other, taking control of her own decisions, and ultimately living one day at a time. Too bad the universe has put a hiccup (or two) in her well thought out plan.

Phoenix Pierce is putting the pieces back together after the death of his father. Between his multi-million dollar company, the NHL team he now owns, and the endless supply of women willing to share a bed for one night of uninhibited sex, he finds himself going through the motions. Until he meets Mia. Although he’s on a mission to win her, that doesn’t solve his problem of the other person he wants… the man he has denied himself for years.

Tarik Marx doesn’t think anyone could ever fill the void in his life the way Phoenix unknowingly has. That is until he meets Mia. Thanks to a fractured childhood, Tarik has to face a bigger problem: he doesn’t know how it feels to be loved. His past adds additional complexity when Tarik finds himself trying to figure out how he can have them both.

Is it possible for a million tiny pieces to come together again? And if they do, will that make the bond even stronger than before?

Jen's review

 

5 stars

 

OH MY GOD! Can I just say holy hell I need a cold shower because this story rocked my world with the smoke, steam and fire that was coming from my iPad. If you read anything by Nicole Edwards you know that this talented author knows how to write some of the most erotic sex scenes and this book certainly did not disappoint. I’m sitting here with my heart beating fast, a goofy grin on my face and blushing like a teenage girl. I LOVED every second of this story and yeah, as brilliant as those sex scenes are the story was fantastic too. This story had everything I could have asked for and more. Nicole Edwards is truly one of my go to authors when I need a lot more heat in my stories. Fans looking for a fantastic story about three people finding their way to one another and making their ménage work definitely want to be picking this one up.

 

Phoenix and Tarik have known each other for many years and their relationship goes beyond just a working one. From the beginning of the story these men intrigued me. I could really feel the chemistry lingering between them. Their easy going nature and interactions between them had me hoping and praying they’d finally admit what I could clearly see happening on the pages. When their infatuation with Mia starts I honestly couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. I love love love these characters!

 

Watching them all spend time together and seeing their friendship grow into something so much more truly had me emotionally invested in their story. These characters really were intense and committed to making it work. As much as I loved every steamy page I also loved the tender, honest moments they all shared with one another. I definitely could feel the passion and desire they had going on in and out of the bedroom for one another. I loved how much they trusted each other when their fears or doubts would creep in. There was no denying how perfect they were together. The passion, respect, lust and desire just poured off the pages.

 

There was not a single moment in this story where I felt like these characters didn’t belong together or where I wished it was only two of them vs the three. Nicole really did a wonderful job showcasing how these three characters could make their unconventional relationship work. I found it really refreshing to have a story with a ménage where there wasn’t a needy or weak character in the fold. In fact all three of these characters were so strong. Each one contributing something different to the relationship. Alone they were strong, together they were a force to be reckoned with.

 

I really don’t want to go into details on what the plot entails because I think you get a pretty good depiction from the synopsis. This story is full of passion and hot scenes that will surely wet any reader’s appetite. There are some really funny moments that happen that had me laughing out loud and there is a bit of drama that gets folded into the mix. This book is a standalone but I hope Nicole considers writing a continuation to this story. This book was truly an amazing love story and I just couldn’t get enough of them.

 

“God help me, I want this more than my next breath.”

Take Me With You Teaser 1

Excerpt

Grant practically bounded across the room until he was directly in front of me. Then, his hands were cupping my cheeks so tenderly that it was as if he thought I might break in half. Without a word, his mouth dropped down on mine, and the kiss was as light as a feather. It was a question, a soft and delicate question, one he had never asked before—permission.

When I didn’t pull away from him, he received his answer. The kiss deepened, and he coaxed all the anger out of me. He drew it out as if sucking venom from an open wound. He kissed me so heatedly and lovingly that not even a drop remained. All that was left was a bottomless well of emotions of how much I loved and missed him.

When I came back into the moment, I heard the catcalls and yells from the people around us. It was then I remembered that we were in a crowded room, surrounded by people, and Grant had kissed the breath out of me. I flushed from head to toe at the attention, but he wouldn’t let me pull away.

“I’m sorry,” he whispered. “I shouldn’t have blown up on you. I shouldn’t have done anything. You’re all that matters.”

I stared up at him in confusion. “Who are you, and what have you done with Grant McDermott?”

He laughed that beautiful glorious laugh, and a smile lit up his whole face. It was that damn smile that had won me over in the first place.

“Run away with me,” he murmured.

“What?”

“Run away with me. Let’s get out of here.”

“Where are we going?”

“Anywhere. Everywhere.”

Victoria Hart is supposed to be the enemy. She is an undercover detective who infiltrated my hotel and casino as an employee to take down my illegal enterprise. What she doesn’t know is I am fully aware of it. The operation I’m orchestrating is monumental compared to anything her mind could envision.It’s the burning desire I feel when she’s near that I didn’t see coming. An unwavering draw to touch her, and the need to break down her walls is testing my restraint; however, nothing can stand in the way of my ultimate goal. She could destroy everything my brothers and I have worked toward to avenge our father’s death.To keep the upper hand, it is vital to know your enemy. How deeply can I go, peeling back her intriguing layers while still concealing the truth? How much of Victoria can I claim before she’s too close … too close for me to let her go?

:::Chants:::
GIVE ME MORE, GIVE ME MORE

Victoria Hart is a Detective who infiltrates herself into a hotel posing as an employee in the effort to dig up dirt on the hotels owner. The unexpected happens and her plan goes astray.

This book!!! What a breath of fresh air… The storyline was very unique, the subject matter was nothing like I have read before, and I really enjoyed it. The character development was strong, even the secondary characters are appealing. I hope there will be more about the other HOT Cassano brothers. The writing will keep you guessing and yearning for more. I look forward to what comes next from this series.

 

 

I would highly recommend picking up this quick read and immersing yourself in Adrian and Victoria’s story. You are warned, this book will make your panties melt and leave you panting.

Excerpt 

Adrian’s POV:

“I’m Adrian Cassano, the owner of this hotel and casino. I was quite impressed with your moves, Ms. Victoria Stuart,” I say with a smirk.

“It’s Vicky, sir, and how did you see that already? I mean–thank you.”

“Can you explain what transpired?”

“He grabbed my ass, which I would’ve excused, but he refused to move his hand afterward, so I had to do it for him.”

I eye her intently. That wasn’t exactly the response I expected. “So, you’re OK with random men grabbing your ass?”

She scowls. “No, but for the sake of my job, I was willing to let it slide once.” She’s giving me attitude, and damn, she’s gorgeous. This will be more enjoyable than I anticipated.

“I see.” Staring into her striking, green eyes for several seconds, I find she’s determined to hold my gaze.

“I think it would be best to move you to an environment where the cliental will not be touching you without your permission. Although the asshole deserved it, I don’t need a lawsuit, and he would not be the last to grab your ass.”

She continues to scowl. At least her attitude suits her day job. Yes, I believe I’m going to enjoy every second of my time with Victoria. She will be easy to torment since she likely feels she has to keep her mouth shut around me. I have a suspicion that is not something she’s used to doing. I’m sure she doesn’t want to lose this job and blow her case. The investigation I’m fully aware of.

 

 

Excerpt #2

Victoria’s POV:

Reaching down, I zip up my black thigh high boot. I’d never tell my detective partner, Reggie, but I feel badass and sexy as the zipper tightens the shiny, black patent leather against my toned leg.

“It appears his mother, Denise, has been in and out of mental facilities his entire life,” I say. “His father, Alvin Cassano, died in the Twin Towers during 9/11. Adrian, his three brothers, and one sister were left with a hefty insurance policy, and he enlisted in the Marines after.”

“I wouldn’t have guessed Adrian Cassano to be ex-military,” Reggie says.

“Once discharged, he and his brothers moved to Vegas and built the hotel and casino.”

“Be careful, Victoria.” Reggie is leaning back against my bedroom door, conveying a stern look.

“Seriously? What is your deal over this job?” I ask as I zip up my second boot.

“Have you forgotten we’re partners? I can’t be in there with you, and it’s making me crazy.”

“I’m a cop. I earned this detective job because of my ability since they sure as hell don’t give it to women otherwise. I can take care of myself.”

He slides his hand through his curly, dark hair. “That’s what worries me. You think you’re invincible.”

Prologue:

Present

January 2013

Have you ever been at such a low point in your life when you saw the light to the other side? I thought it was something that people experienced when they were old and gray and had lived a life full of hopes, dreams, accomplishments, and family. I never thought that the angel would come for me at twenty-five. It’s my birthday.

It’s also the day I die.

She’s here. I can see the light around her and feel the warmth of her presence, amber liquid pouring too quickly over my head. The heat flows between my legs.

What’s happening? So much blood leaves my body. I can’t feel pain. I see only light and crimson. This is my end, but I’m not ready. I have so many things left unfinished, so many mistakes to correct. This is all my fault. The baby will die and I did this.

He will never forgive me. I need to see him one more time. I need to tell him the truth. He needs to understand what happened. I thought life would be different. I thought I had more time. If only I had more time.

My life can’t end like this.

Synopsis

 

When I was ten, my father indoctrinated me into the family.

A brotherhood who would fight, protect, and give their lives for one another. A club whose ties ran thicker than blood, murkier than the dirt and grime that tainted my soul. Stronger than the bonds that connected me to my own family.

A band of brothers, where loyalty was kept and paid in a currency of blood.

When I was twenty-seven, I betrayed that brotherhood.

I’ve spent every day since running, avoiding paying back that debt.

My name is Daniel Johnson. I have betrayed everyone I ever loved.

And I’ll betray her too.

This is my story—if you’re screwed up enough to want to read it.

Warning: Kick contains graphic violence, profanity, drug use, and explicit sexual situations of a taboo nature. Intended for an 18+ audience only. Not intended for pussies.

Josie's review

 

5 stars

 

 

If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would, it was just that good!!!

 

I have had the pleasure of reading the Sugartown series by Carmen Jenner and fell in love with her style of writing. When I saw she was going to write a book about Kick I was excited. We met Kick in the Sugartown series and his character intrigued me. I wanted to learn more about him and what happened in his life to make him the way he was. Kick is not for the faint at heart. The author’s warning about the topics and instances in this story is true, this is NOT a fluffy read. It is gritty, dirty and powerful. It will test you and at times and make your cringe but I promise it is all worth it. Kick is the story of Kick (Daniel) and Indie (Kayla). Their story is not an easy one, so please be warned, if you do not like to have your limits tested than this is not the book for you.

 

I love novels that challenge me and make me have to put on my thinking cap. I have to say that Kick really did challenge me. I love how the writing in this story takes readers from past to present and offers in detail why and how Kick is the person he is today. Kick’s life in the Angel MC was not an easy one nor was growing up with his abusive father. He grew up in a violent and unforgiving MC where pain and control is the only way he can live his life. After her betrays the Angel MC, he was cast out. However, with the help of his friend Tank he was accepted into another chapter the Savage Saint MC’s. Kick is gorgeous, smart and savvy. He is also a total alpha male who is dark and gritty. Kick is haunted by the past and the devastating repercussions and he survives the only way he knows how. And that is through other peoples pain.

 

“I like to watch her cry. I taste her tears. I relish them. Because pain is beauty, at least in my world. And everything in my world is pain.”


Kick’s world is changed once again when the prez of the Saints requests that he and Tank settle a score for a fellow Brother of the MC. Tank and Kick walk in on a situation that makes him think of his past and he takes measures to ensure that this time around the ending is different. He saves the life of Indie, a woman who has spent weeks undergoing the unimaginable and unthinkable. Against Tank and his prez’s judgment he takes Indie into his world, into his life and into his room.

 

Indie is not familiar with the MC lifestyle. She has a family, home and a life that is until she was taken. When Kick walks into her life she sees the biker and his club as the enemy. She thinks they are all sick and deprived. The club wants her quiet and will make sure she stays that way willingly or by their hands. She has a long journey ahead of her. A journey of survival, revenge and acceptance. With the help of Kick, Indie learns how to fight and deal with her pain so that she can survive. Their relationship is not a pretty one but the two will find acceptance amongst each other and both fight for survival in this dark world.

 

“I own you. You belong to me. You let another man near that pu**y of yours and I’ll gut him like a fu*kin fish while you watch. You gonna ride on the back of my bike? Be in my bed? Then I won you, Spitfire. You’re mine, and there’s not a goddamn thing you can do about it.”

“No one owns me.”

“I take what’s mine, and I take care of mine.   Are you mine, babe? Look at me, are you mine?”

“Yes, I’m yours.”

 

This is not a romantic MC book by any means and this is very different than her writing style in the Sugartown series. You can tell that the author challenged and pushed herself in this novel. She went in deep into the REAL MC life and wasn’t afraid to bring out the taboo lifestyle. There is no walk into the sunset happy ending, but the end is one that as a reader you know makes perfect sense. I was able to feel and relate to Kick and Indie’s struggles and survival to come out of darkness, to find peace with how their violent lives affected them. This is the first book in the series and can’t wait to see what the next book will bring. Once again, if you can handle a gritty and challenging read, KICK is your book. It deals with subject matters than some may find offensive or might be a trigger for some but for me, this was an exceptional, powerful read that held my interest throughout the novel.

excerpt

 

 

I pick up a cup of cold, stale, black coffee and chug it down. It tastes like shit, so I screw the cap off of a bottle of Jack and chase the black filth with the burn of amber. I set it back on the table while the familiar click of my gun being cocked echoes through my small room. I laugh. Fucking ballsy bitches make me hot.

“Hands in the air, and turn around. Slowly,” the woman says through a scratchy throat. I do as she asks, mostly because I want to keep my spine intact, but also partly because bitches with guns are fucking hot, and I’m hard as a rock just thinking about the way she’s gonna look with a pistol trained on me.

She’s been busy while I was out, rummaging through my drawers and finding a pair of loose tracksuit pants. They’re rolled at the waist, so much that it makes her look pregnant. That, combined with her crazy fuckin’ cat lady hair and the filth covering her body, makes her look like a homeless person.

I smile and clasp my hands behind my head. Her eyes rove over me, taking in my size. She’s checking me for the arsenal I so obviously have stashed away in my fucking worn, faded jeans. She’s not checking me out and dreaming about me taking her rough and hard on my fucking scratched-up dining table, but I still get a fucking boner out of having her eyes roam all over me.

“Pick up the keys, and open the door,” she commands.

“If you run, they’ll shoot you.”

“Pick up the fucking keys.”

I snatch up the keys and lob them at her, hard enough that she has to twist out of the way. She cries out as she does, proving to me that her ribs are definitely injured, maybe even cracked. I lunge at her. Shoving her back against the bed, I land on top of her, warding off her blows with one hand and squeezing her wrist with the other until she drops the gun on the floor.

“Get off me!” she screams.

“You’re not leaving this clubhouse,” I whisper in her ear as she struggles beneath me. “The best you can hope for is to play nice and I might decide to keep you as a house mouse. But if you piss me off, and if you pull on me with my own gun again, your life will be so much worse. You thought the dentist was fucked up? Baby, you haven’t seen anything until you’ve lived inside my fantasies for a day. So if I were you, I’d be really fuckin’ careful about how you play your next move.”

 Book Description

Publication Date: November 21, 2014
Inspired by True Real Life Events… Lana Martin had a simple life, uncomplicated by the things that normally plagued her friends. But then terror struck and she found herself the unwilling plaything of a sexual deviant. She is forced to do many things she otherwise would have never considered, the most horrible of all being to take a deep long look at herself. What she sees scares the hell out of her, and those around her. Sex for her is quickly transformed from the mundane to a dangerous way of life. Under his control, she is forced to endure things that would have crushed most people, but somehow she managed to stay alive long enough to be rescued and return to a normal life.Something dark is awakened inside of her, an unknown desire, an insatiable hunger for a master to use her for his pleasure. Her need for submission takes her down a winding path of pain and pleasure, as she comes to grips with her carnal lust, and her need to have it satisfied. Her captor awoke a sexual beast he hadn’t expected, and no one is prepared for Lana Martin.Only life would never be normal again for Lana, because she came out of the ordeal with an unsettling knowledge that she had never been truly happy before. The deeply terrifying events she had endured had done something she hadn’t expected; they had awakened something dark inside of her, a lust that could only be satisfied under the protection of a black hood. She found that only in that darkness, could she truly be free from her inhibitions.When Daniel Morrow, the man who had held her captive is released from prison, Lana’s nightmare begins again, and she fears she will never be safe again. Her life, her future now relies on one man, the man she had once dismissed as unable to satisfy her longing, her former boyfriend Sergio Marsilis. Follow along with Lana as the darkness is awakened inside of her, and then as she searches for the one thing that has always eluded her, perfect sexual freedom. 

Josie's review
 5 stars


 Lana’s Awakening is a gritty, dark and very captivating read. I love a dark read, a book that makes you ponder, cringe and reevaluate every aspect of normal. Ms. Elyon writes a book that that will dig deep into the mind and make you reexamine how you look at life. 

This is Lana’s story how about she was abducted, tortured, sexually abused, beaten and told how to live every second of her life while in captivity. Please note: some of the situations and topics mentioned might be a trigger at some point for some and might be too graphic. This is a dark read. In order for Lana to survive the brutality of her captor she had to adapt and do the unimaginable so she could live another day. Lana had no idea that her days with her captor would awaken what she has long suppressed. This story is inspired by true real life events and I thinking knowing that it actually helped me connect with the characters a lot more and feel every emotion. Lana’s Awakening is her journey into finding acceptance, love and balance in a world that sees her cravings as vile.

 

Lana’s viewpoint of life has changed since her days prior and post captivity. She now lives with her boyfriend Sergio the man that moved heaven and earth to find her. Her sexual preferences in life have changed. She thrives on being submissive and relinquishing all power and control to Sergio. But even with Sergio’s compliance she still craves a sexual deviant and darker sex life. She wants to be hurt, treated like a whore, beaten and raped. When she and Sergio realize they can’t give each other what the other craves they break up. Lana runs into the arms of the police office that rescued her, Tink.

 

Although Tink is a police officer he has a sexual dark side and is open to what Lana is looking for. Lana is able to be the woman her captor released and enjoys her time with Tink. Tink has secretly lusted and wanted Lana and wants to give Lana what she craves but he is keeping a very big secret about his past and about her abduction. When the truth is revealed the only person that can help her is Sergio.

 

A month after their break up Sergio is still angry, hurt and trying to figure how far he would go for Lana. Through his journey he becomes a stronger man, one that Lana needs. To protect her heart, body and mind from herself and the man that took her, Daniel. When life throws Lana back into Sergio’s life he is not willing to second guess his role as Lana’s Dom and keeper.

 

As a reader you can feel Lana’s longing to find a man that would love her enough to accept the darker side she craves without being judged. An added bonus to this story is the multiple POV’s told by all the characters in the story; Daniel (Captor), Tink (Police Officer), Sergio (Friend/Boyfriend) and Lana. I absolutely loved how much Sergio worked on being more dominant and aggressive in the bedroom while he and Lana were apart for months. I never doubted his love for her but seeing how she was always in his fore thoughts during his transformation solidified his love for her for me.

 

This book is gritty, dark and intriguing. Characters that you will love and hate. The story is full of secrets, suspense and love. Just when you think things are calm for Lana – BAM!!! I really enjoyed how well written the novel was and how well everything flowed. I read that the author will bring readers more of Sergio and Lana in the future and to be honest I hope this happens. I would like to see what happens to them down the road.

Excerpt #1

The thought of asking him to hurry never entered her mind. The wait was hell, but what a delightful hell it was. Her dark prince knew her sins and exactly how to celebrate them, incorporating her punishment into her heavenly reward.

His hand on the small of her back told her he was ready, gently holding her in place with the warmth of a deep embrace. His free hand slid behind her, his fingers protruding past the paddle’s handle, gliding lightly across her skin. The first swat stung deep, sending rapid shockwaves through her body, and causing her skin to tingle ecstatically beneath the paddle. Her legs began to tremble immediately as she allowed her head to hang motionless beneath her.

“Thank you,” she managed, trying to make the strain in her voice sound, at the least, like it originated a bit more from pain than pleasure. But was often a trick harder than she could manage. All he had to do was let one finger slip, and touch her there, and he would know damn well how much she liked it.

A second swat came harder than the first, sending an echoing ‘smack!’ bouncing off the walls before returning to her welcoming ears. Even the sound of the paddle as it quickly reddened her ass caused a barely controllable urge to beg for more. A third swat, then a fourth and fifth came in rapid succession, stealing any delusions of control from Lana’s body, her mouth. She moaned loudly as Sergio applied the wood again and again, any semblance of displeasure lost to her completely. When she felt the handle of the paddle placed into his left hand on the small of her back, she could not hold back the whimper.

“Yes,” she said, knowing he would now know her desire, her appreciation. His finger slid effortlessly inside her aching opening, the sopping sound it made only heightening her desire, her need. A second finger found no further resistance than the first, as he quickened the pace, plowing his fingers inside her again and again. It was only when a third finger was added, that the pace slowed, her pussy tightened around him hungrily.

Excerpt #2

 

“What do you want more than anything else?” he asked.

She didn’t have to think about that one; she knew the answer before he asked it, in the bath earlier, on the chair in front of Sergio. There was only one thing she wanted, and while she had only recently been able to come to grips with it, somehow she knew she had wanted it all along. She looked back over her shoulder at him and said the truest thing she could remember ever saying in her life.

“I want you to do any and every thing you want to do, without ever asking that question again.”He lowered her until her feet were back on the ground below her, removing his hands from her, and walked around the bench to face her suspended upturned face. Her eyes followed him as he walked, leaning back to watch his face as he approached her again. He was looking behind her, but this time it wasn’t to keep her from seeing his face; he was looking up and down the street to make sure no one had come up behind them. Convinced they were alone, he looked down at her, his eyes locking with hers. Surely, he could see the seriousness in her eyes. She did her best to hold his gaze, the one she had often seen as kind, but was now becoming something different, a truer level of kindness, one which reached past her outer weakness and found the strength inside.

“That’s easy enough to say,” he said, his eyes seemingly searching hers, searching for any hint of regret, for anything resembling weakness. Completely understanding the difference between submission and weakness, Lana smiled.

“So is ‘stop,’ but you will never hear me say it.”

He held her gaze a few seconds longer, then seemingly convinced, stepped forward, unzipping his pants. When he pulled his dick from his pants, she had her mouth open waiting for him. He lowered his pants far enough to keep the buckle of his belt and the zipper from his pants from coming into contact with her face, then gently holding the sides of her head, pushed his dick into her mouth. Lana felt it pause momentarily at the back of her mouth before sliding in deeper. Her uplifted head created a straight line from her mouth into her throat, and though there was some resistance, he had no real trouble getting its entire length inside her mouth. She held no delusion that any prolonged pressure of this nature would turn discomfort into actual pain, but it didn’t matter; she was where she wanted to be, completely vulnerable but in complete control. He held her head in place and fucked her mouth, gentler than she might have thought, but firmly, his pace quickening. His anticipation had been extreme and it was not long until she felt the head of his dick swelling against her tonsils.

He pulled his dick backward, stopping when only the tip remained inside her mouth, and then as a loud grunt came from his mouth, she felt the hot release explode inside her mouth, easily filling it with his salty cum. He pushed forward some, now stopping at the back of her mouth, forcing some of the sticky mess into her throat, while causing some to escape and run down the corners of her mouth. She felt it as it dripped from her chin, while more found its way down her throat into the pit of her stomach, its warmth easily recognizable inside her. He milked the last of it into her waiting mouth before pulling his dick back out into the night air. She tilted her head backwards, swallowing as much as she could, the remainder slipping out of her mouth as she looked up at him and opened her mouth. With his hot jizz on her chin and lips, she looked up at him, whispering the most sincere thing in her heart.

“Thank you,” she said.

Excerpt

I shift closer to him and wrap my arms around his waist. I lay my head on his chest and breathe him in. His shoulders relax, if only slightly. The need to comfort him is overwhelming. I want to wash it all away for him, hold the world at bay while I erase the worry permanently etched in his forehead.

“Everything is going to be okay, West. I just know it,” I lie. I don’t know that everything will be okay. I don’t know anything at all.

We sit in electrified silence, the crackling of dead leaves under us the only sound. I memorize the feel of him, the smell of him, the rhythm of his breathing. I’m lost in the moment, already anticipating the loss that’s to come.

“I leave in a month.”

The words cut through the silence like a judgment. Instead of hurt, I’m filled with resolve. I won’t let him push me away anymore. I’m done playing by his rules.

I rise up to meet the storm brewing in his eyes. His hand wraps firmly around my neck, and his eyes dart hungrily to my lips. I swallow nervously and refuse to look away.

If he turns his head or pulls my hair, I swear I’m going to tackle him to the ground.

I lean in hopefully, somewhat expectantly, and close my eyes. His warm breath dances across my lips, and my every prayer is answered. He presses his mouth firmly to mine and stills, almost memorizing the moment.

That one small touch is the beginning of the most memorable kiss of my life. It’s hello and goodbye, I love you, I’ll miss you, and everything in between.

He sucks my bottom lip, and I inhale sharply, completely overcome. His hands dive into my hair, and his tongue slides against mine just once before he pulls away. He touches my forehead to his and chuckles softly.

“What have we been waiting for all this time?”

“You,” I whisper breathlessly, “I’ve been waiting for you.”

My admission is all he needs. He devours me, a tangle of lips, teeth, tongues, and hands. I don’t know where I end and he begins. I’m exhilarated and relieved all at once.

I run my hands down his arms and grip his wrists tightly. I pull away and look into his hooded eyes.

“Tell me something, West. Tell me something I don’t know.”

He runs a thumb over my swollen lips while he studies me. I’ve never felt more loved, more worshipped.

“I can’t imagine a world without you in it. No matter where I am, I’ll always dream of you. It’ll have to be enough.” He places soft, scorching kisses up my neck until he reaches my ear. “God, I don’t think it’ll ever be enough.”

Godsend by Sloan Johnson Cover Reveal & Giveaway

Title: Godsend

Author: Sloan Johnson

Genre: Adult, Gay Romance

Coming: February 2015

You can’t choose who you fall in love with. Despite knowing from a young age that he was gay, Scott Murphy couldn’t imagine life without Shelly. He threw away the labels and had eleven amazing years with her, but now, he feels even more lost trying to figure out how to move on after Shelly’s death. After nearly a year of watching Scott fade away, Shelly’s father forces him to start living again.

 

As much as Chris loathes the idea of attending a bereavement group week after week, it’s one of the only places he can go in this town, other than the bar, to not feel so alone. When there’s nothing to distract him or dull his senses, he spends too much time obsessing over how he should have been able to help his sister. When Scott shows up at his group session, Chris decides that maybe some good can come out of his sister’s death. 

 

There’s no denying that Chris is the first man to catch Scott’s attention in a long time, but how can he move on when just thinking of Shelly sends him to his dark place? 

 

The road to recovery won’t be an easy one, but Chris is determined to help Scott see that life is still worth living. But before Scott can allow himself to admit what he feels for Chris, he knows he has to reveal the full truth about Shelly’s death.

 

Sloan Johnson is a big city girl trapped in a country girl’s life. While she longs for the hustle and bustle of New York City or Las Vegas, she hasn’t yet figured out how to sit on the deck with her morning coffee, watching the deer and wild turkeys in the fields while surrounded by concrete and glass.

 

When she was three, her parents received their first call from the principal asking them to pick her up from school. Apparently, if you aren’t enrolled, you can’t attend classes, even in Kindergarten. The next week, she was in preschool and started plotting her first story soon after.

 

Later in life, her parents needed to do something to help their socially awkward, uncoordinated child come out of her shell and figured there was no better place than a bar on Wednesday nights. It’s a good thing they did because this is where she found her love of reading and writing. Who needs socialization when you can sit alone in your bedroom with a good book?

 

Now, Sloan is a tattooed mom with a mohawk and two kids. She’s been kicked out of the PTA in two school districts and is no longer asked to help with fundraisers because she’s been known to lose herself with a good book and forget she has somewhere to be.
