I’m a freak, a misfit, an odd end.
Abandoned and unloved.
But my happiness is so close I can taste it.

Until he shows up.

Gorgeous, expensive, and all man.
Sad brown eyes and a brilliant smile.
And he wants me to go with him.

His intentions are hidden.
His motives are unclear.
Yet, I leave with him because there’s no happiness here.

What he promises feels too good to be true…
A castle. A fortune. And horses too.

It’s too easy.
Nothing in my life has ever been easy.

What’s the catch?
There’s always a catch.

Casey Doe didn’t have the easiest start in life. As a baby, she was left at a church addicted to crack cocaine thanks to her mother who abandoned her. She bounced through the foster system until fate brought her in contact with Tyler who whisks her away to a mansion. It’s like a fairytale. Being with Tyler and his brother Torin confuses Casey. She doesn’t know if she should trust this fairytale ending or does Tyler have some ulterior motive?

“She’s different. Beautiful and perfect and mine. But is she? I don’t understand how her mind works. When her blue eyes glitter with emotion, I don’t know what goes on inside her head. I want to cup her cheeks and beg for explanations, but I never do.

Tyler thought I could love her.

I don’t even know what love is.

But I could breathelicktastetouchsmellfeelher.

I could do that all damn day.”

Sigh…this story was just a beautiful breath of fresh air. The relationship between the two brothers is so sweet and heartbreaking at the same time. Tyler not only shows his protectiveness for his brother but for Casey as well. What I love most about this book is how different this story is. We have two brothers that are strongly bonded and rely on one another and the girl who can fit right in…like a puzzle piece…she was made to complete their family. I cried and laughed while reading this book and gasped at the twists. So touching and well worth reading.

If you haven’t given K. Webster a try yet and love a great emotional story, this is one I highly recommend. I had no idea what the book was about when I started it and going in blind is the way to go. Start it now!

Sex not Love by Vi Keeland ~ Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review

 

AVAILABLE NOW

 

Amazon | iBooks | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Google Play | Amazon Print | Audible

 

 

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.

We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn’t dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?

Nothing, I thought.

It’s just sex, not love.

But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

If there’s one thing I know for certain, its that I can never go wrong with a Vi book. It’s just not possible. From the first page to the last I am hooked. Forget the laundry, dishes, and other house stuff that needs to be done. When Vi releases, I’m settling in for the duration. There are so many things I loved about this book. The chemistry, sexual tension, but most importantly, the story. I love love love this story. There is literally nothing that I disliked about it.

Nat is a sassy woman. Granted she’s been though hell and back due to her ex but she still wants to have some fun. Stepping up to the plate to take care of things when no one else was there seems to be her forte. And she’s damn great at it. I admired her strength and courage so much. When all she wanted was a fun night, she never dreamed a talk dark and handsome man would knock her world off its axis. But that’s just what this woman needed. I was absolutely giddy when Hunter came into the story.

With his filthy mouth and obvious sexual attraction to Nat, Hunter is one book man that will rank high on my list. I mean what’s not to love!? He’s sexy, smart, funny, and so damn dirty I nearly melted on the spot. But more than that, he’s a thoughtful man. He has his reasons for not settling down and where usually this would bother me in a story, I completely understood and would have done the same.

This story is brilliant. While I am always sure that Vi’s words will pull me into every story, I am still left reeling after every one. There’s a reason she’s the best, and this story is just further proof!

Hot Shot by Karina Halle
Release Date: January 9th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Hang Le

Hot Shot AMAZON

Delilah Gordon has a secret.

She’s been in love with her best friend and the boy next door, Fox Nelson, since she was six years old.

And while most of her friends and family know about her unrequited crush, the one person who remains oblivious is Fox himself. To Delilah, it’s better this way. She’d rather pretend that they’re just friends, even though her feelings for the moody rugged mountain man are anything but tame.

Fox Nelson has a secret too.

As a wildland firefighter or “hot shot,” Fox parachutes into danger every day he’s on the job, risking all to fight wildfires that threaten ranches, forests and thousands of lives. But while Fox’s job is only for the brave, inside he feels anything but. The more he grapples with his raging demons, the more he realizes Delilah is the only one who can put out the flames.

As the two friends grow closer – and more intimate – than ever before, the more complicated their relationship becomes.

And Delilah has one more secret to reveal.

A secret that will change both their lives…forever.

eKindle Review by: Jen

To say I have been waiting for this third and final book of this series is an understatement. This book is a standalone however reading the two books prior does give you some glimpses of who Fox and Delilah are. Ever since the first book in this series was released I have been dying to see what/if anything would become of these two! There was just something about Delilah that I loved! She is such a strong woman who at the same times carries the insecurities that all us women do. She was beyond relatable and honestly she is the type of person that you want to be friends with! This book was hands down my favorite book of the entire series! Delilah has been in love with Fox from the time she was a little girl, there isn’t a time when she wasn’t in love with him. Fox on the other hand never allowed himself to think of Delilah in that light and honestly did not have a single clue that Delilah thought of him in that way. Like most guys he was totally and completely oblivious to the way Delilah felt about him. You can tell there was an unspoken chemistry between these two characters from the very beginning of the book and as their story progressed their sexual chemistry exploded as well!

Fox, is a wildland firefighter, AKA hot shot, whose extremely dangerous job often puts him in extreme danger. Although he won’t admit it to anyone the job is wearing on him, however he puts on a brave face and continues to go where he is needed. When things get rough with his job and just life in general Fox finds himself always turning to the one person who just gets him- Delilah. She, to him, is the breath of fresh air that keeps him going without any judgment. When an unexpected person finally lifts the veils off of Fox’s eyes and he truly sees Delilah- well all bets are off! Their first night together- holy mother of all hotness! Let’s just say it is epic and definitely book marked on my kindle as I will be rereading that part over again. Their sexual chemistry is off the charts!!!! However as we all know it takes a lot more than just sexual chemistry to make a real relationship work. As issues from Fox’s past come to surface and a new pressing issue is placed upon Delilah will these two be able to deal with their past, present and possible future together? Or will they realize that being friends is the best way to be.

While writing this review I tried so hard not to let any spoilers slip because I truly want you, the reader, to enjoy this book to the fullest that I was able to. (so I truly hope my review makes sense!) This book has so many different layers to it that I could not put it down, so I didn’t! I actually finished the book in one sitting because I become so invested in these characters in their life that I knew I wouldn’t sleep until I knew what was going to happen! This book does not disappoint and it is truly the perfect book for the end of an epic series! Fox and Delilah’s journey is very realistic and one that many people face. It gives all people hope and encouragement to fight for what you want and to also know you own worth. I look forward to rereading this entire series again one day as all the characters have a special place in my heart.

Excerpt

It’s dark now and quiet except for the crickets. In the distance, the town of North Ridge glows, the lights giving way to the dark mountain ranges behind it and beyond that, a clear, starry sky.

I immediately feel better but it’s not enough. I need to walk, to get my head on straight, to get my heart to stop caving in.

I head down the slope to the barn. It’s second nature to want to come here during hard times. Growing up, if anyone in the house was fighting—and it was usually Shane and Fox—this was where you’d find them afterwards, licking their wounds.

Right now the barn is empty, all the horses are either in their paddocks or the pastures. I glance up at the hayloft and contemplate going up there when I hear footsteps behind me.

I immediately stiffen. It’s funny how you can feel someone’s specific presence without seeing them.

“What’s wrong with you?” Fox asks gruffly from behind me. Typical. Even if he’s concerned, sometimes he comes across like it annoys him to be concerned.

I take in a deep breath and turn around. “I don’t know,” I say, my voice measured. “Just felt a bit nauseous.”

He studies my face intently, so intently that I look away, my eyes drifting over the empty stalls. “I thought maybe I’d pissed you off somehow,” he says.

Is he baiting me?

I meet his eyes. “Why would you think that?”

“You could barely look at me during dinner,” he says, taking a step toward me until he’s a foot away. “Was it something I did? Is this about Conan?”

He’s so damn earnest in that last question that I have to laugh. I fold my arms across my chest. “No, Fox. This isn’t about your squirrel. It’s not about anything. I’m just…tired.”

I can tell he doesn’t believe me and the intensity has changed in his eyes. They’ve become more focused on me, like he’s seeing me for the first time and nothing else around us matters.

“I like this,” he says, his voice sounding thick. He takes a strand of my hair between his fingers and runs them down. “Your hair is so long. You should wear it down more often.”

I roll my eyes and hope I’m not blushing. “You guys are all the same. A girl wears her hair down and puts on some makeup and suddenly you realize that she’s actually hot. It’s like She’s All That come to life.”

Oh shit. I probably shouldn’t have said that last bit out loud since it’s a whole bunch of assumptions and I’m not one to flatter myself like that.

But he just grins. One of those cheeky, warm smiles that makes his eyes crinkle at the corners, the dimples appear in his scruff. He doesn’t smile like that very often and every time he does for me, it makes me feel…invincible.

“Del, I’ve always thought you were hot,” he says, still smiling. No awkwardness or hesitation. He just comes out and says it.

And now I am blushing. “Yeah right.”

“What?” he asks, tucking my hair behind my ear and—hell—his touch causes warm shivers to wash down my back. “It’s true. I mean, look at you.”

Don’t read into it. Don’t read into it.

“Do you remember that birthday party where we played spin the bottle?” I ask him, my voice sounding broken.

He nods. “Kind of.” But he doesn’t remove his hand, keeps playing with my hair.

I don’t know why I’m feeling brave all of a sudden but I am. “Well you spun the bottle and it stopped right at me. No mistake about it. And you got up and said it was stupid and left. Fox, we were good friends and you acted like kissing me was the worst thing on earth.”

His dark brows knit together but his eyes stay warm. “You remember that?”

“Fox. I’m a woman. I’m always going to remember when a boy rejects me, especially my best friend and especially at a young age.”

“But we were young. And I was pretty stupid back then.”

“You thought I was gross.”

He lets out a soft laugh. “I can promise you I did not think you were gross.” His hand then leaves my hair and trails down my arm to my hand. Sometimes Fox holds it and I know I shouldn’t think anything of it but every time he does I wonder if he realizes what it does to me. Then again, I’m starting to think he’s oblivious to absolutely everything.

“I didn’t kiss you,” he goes on, “not because I didn’t want to. I did.” He swallows, shrugs. “I just didn’t want our first kiss to be from spin the bottle.”

Hold up…what?

“What do you mean? Our first kiss?” I repeat, my pulse quickening.

“I don’t know, Del. Back then, I kind of assumed that we would end up together at some point. You know all through high school I had just been waiting to make my move and ask you out. At least figure out if you liked me or not. But then you started going out with that guy with the big ears, what was his name, Ryan McGee? And that’s when I realized that it was probably all in my head. You were just a friend. A sister, even. And I was just a brother to you.”

Holy. Fucking. Shit.

This is way too much to process.

Fox thought we’d end up together.

He actually liked me back in high school!

“You look shocked,” he says, raising a brow. “I thought it was pretty obvious.”

“Obvious?” I blurt out. “No. No it wasn’t.”

He lets go of my hand and shrugs with one shoulder. “It’s funny how life goes, isn’t it? It was probably for the best anyway. Could you have imagined us dating? Being a couple.”

Yes, fucking yes.

The Wright Secret by K.A. Linde ~ Blog Tour w/ Review

 

 

A new brother’s-best-friend stand alone romance by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

I was just his best friend’s little sister.

But he was always more than that to me.

After twelve years of pining over Patrick’s easy smile, baby blues, and captivating charm, I decide to take matters into my own hands—and completely blow my chance.

Who knew a self-proclaimed manwhore would decide to be a gentleman the first time I’m naked in his bed? Definitely, not me. But when I land there again, neither of us has any intention of stopping.

There’s only one problem: nobody can know. Especially not my three older brothers. If they found out, all hell would break loose.

So I’m willing to keep our secret. Because I want him Wright here, right now.

The Wright Secret by K.A. Linde gives us the amazing journey of Morgan and Patrick. Patrick is Morgan’s older brother, Austin’s, best friend. They have always been in each other’s lives but Patrick never allowed himself to look at Morgan than anything else as Austin’s little sister. Morgan on the other hand has always had a crush on Patrick but realized he would never jeopardize this relationship with Austin and the entire family. Morgan knows that having Patrick see her in a different light will be hard- real hard- as Patrick has pretty much enjoyed the single manwhore life and the fact that her three older brothers would kill him if he touches her doesn’t help. When a tragedy struck the family Morgan realized that no one is guaranteed a certain amount of time in life and finally decided it was time to get Patrick because you only have this one life to live. When her one chance goes in the opposite direction of how she planned she can’t help but feel a bit deflated. But as luck would have it Morgan finds herself and Patrick in a perfect circumstance that could potentially make or break them!

I have fallen in love with this family from the very first book! I was SO excited that Morgan finally got her story told. I love a strong independent woman who knows her worth and isn’t afraid to go out in get what she wants. I have been so curious about Patrick when we really got to know him in Austin’s book. When Patrick finally sees the perfect woman who has always been standing right in front of him you can’t help but swoon at how he refuses to give up on her or their relationship even if he risks losing his best friend. Morgan and Patrick are an amazing couple- their chemistry was off the charts and I just loved the way that they respected and truly feel in love with one another. If you haven’t read any of the Wright series you need to make it “wright” and do so “wright”away!! I love this series and can’t wait to see who is next!!! Morgan and Patrick will be a tough act to follow!

Tia nails it with Under the Lights! I cant wait to get book two and see what happens next. Although this book is listed as second-chance romance, I didn’t get that impression. Maybe book two….. But with the ending of this one Im not so sure. Larissa and Mark are definitely trying to start something up but the odds are NEVER in their favor. At all.

Larissa is working her booty off to make sure a little one stays safe. Work hard, keep your head down, and don’t cause a fuss is most definitely her motto. But when she is thrust into the limelight her motto gets thrown out the window. Shes a top commodity, and theres nothing she can do about it.

Mark is doing his best to make ends meat when he meets Larissa. She quickly becomes his almost near obsession. Shes sweet, nice, and all that is good in his world. Taking on a job to stay close to her is a good idea at first…. but then its not anymore. He wants more and he will do anything to keep her safe and happy.

I really felt for these two. I love their story. Although neither of them is in the best life situation they try to make their own slice of heaven to enjoy. Even if for a little while. Super intense chemistry, but I felt like it was a little forced at times. But that didn’t deter me in the least. I still loved the book and am really looking for the second. I have to know how this plays out. I love a good duet! They keep me on my toes for the most part and definitely wanting more.

She’s the Dark Angel who stole my heart.
Her body is intoxicating, our love overwhelming.

Cat eyes and blood red lips.
Sizzling fingers on white-hot skin.
I couldn’t keep my hands off her…

But her fame had a dark side,
A sinister shadow lurking under the lights.

I would do anything to save her…
He would do anything to see me dead.

Tia nails it with Under the Lights! I can’t wait to get book two and see what happens next. Although this book is listed as second-chance romance, I didn’t get that impression. Maybe book two…but with the ending of this one I’m not so sure. Larissa and Mark are definitely trying to start something up, but the odds are NEVER in their favor. At all.

Larissa is working her booty off to make sure a little one stays safe. Work hard, keep your head down, and don’t cause a fuss is most definitely her motto. But when she is thrust into the limelight her motto gets thrown out the window. She’s a top commodity, and there’s nothing she can do about it.

Mark is doing his best to make ends meat when he meets Larissa. She quickly becomes his almost near obsession. She’s sweet, nice, and all that is good in his world. Taking on a job to stay close to her is a good idea at first…but then its not anymore. He wants more, and he will do anything to keep her safe and happy.

I really felt for these two. I love their story. Although neither of them is in the best life situation they try to make their own slice of heaven to enjoy. Even if for a little while. Super intense chemistry, but I felt like it was a little forced at times. But that didn’t deter me in the least. I still loved the book and am really looking for the second. I have to know how this plays out. I love a good duet! They keep me on my toes for the most part and definitely wanting more.

Three Blind Dates by Meghan Quinn ~ Blog Tour w/ 5 Star Review & Excerpt

Synopsis

“Good Morning Malibu, it’s another beautiful day on the west coast! I’m Noely Clark, your host: and I’m in the market for love…”

When the publicity team of the new local restaurant, Going in Blind, began their search for a hot, local celebrity to promote the wildly popular eatery, they couldn’t have found a better person than me.

Outgoing? Check.
Single? Check.
Open to finding love? Check.

I signed up immediately.

A hopeless romantic with an exceedingly demanding schedule, I’ve found it impossible to find the man of my dreams—so Going in Blind seems too good to be true! That’s until they start setting me up on dates—three very different, very attractive, very distinct blind dates—and only one thing is for certain . . .

I’m in big trouble.

Good Morning Malibu,
I’m Noely Clark, and I have a choice to make.
The question is who will I choose; the suit, the rebel, or the jock

Noely has the worst luck with men. Tired of being alone, she decides to give a new blind dating restaurant program a try. When her boss from her morning talk show hears, he decides to make Noely’s venture into a segment on the program. Lovely. Now Noely doesn’t only get to try to find love but she gets to share her dating adventures with all of Malibu. Who will Noel choose? The Suit, the Rebel or the Jock? Or none of the above?

“I haven’t had the best of luck in the dating department. Clearly my radar for good men is terrible. I attract the worst kind of men from the clingers, to the stealers – yes, I’ve had men steal from me before – to the perpetual criers. And now that I’m ‘famous’ in Malibu for my morning talk show, the pool of good men has really narrowed.

All I want is someone amusing who can laugh with me, a man who can also connect with me on an intellectual level. If he happens to be handsome with big hands, impeccable style, and a deep voice that can rock my socks off in bed, then hey, I’ll take it.”

Romantic comedies are my jam and I really loved this creative take on the dating world. Going In Blind matches you up with your perfect compatible partner and the dates Noely ends up going on make me so jealous! Every single time you can see why these guys were chosen for Noely with the chemistry and shared interests popping but at the same time…nothing is as perfect as it seems. Besides the flirty dip into the dating pool, we also have crazy antics of Noely’s BFF/co-host and her brother and sister-in-law keeping her grounded and humble. I laughed so hard as Noely tried to manage her insane friends and family while juggling her dating life. Which incredibly gorgeous man does Noely end up with? You won’t know who wins Noel’s heart until the very end and it’s definitely worth the wait.

I can’t wait to read more about these characters who have won my heart over from the start. You know you can’t make me fall in love with every single suitor without giving me more! Meghan always knows what we need.

Excerpt

I didn’t realize how close I was to the restaurant because I’m ten minutes early. Does that make me seem desperate? No, I chastise myself. It shows that I respect the other person’s time . . . right?

God, dating is the worst. There are so many unspoken rules you have to follow to not look desperate, or to not look like a psycho, or a creep, or horny, or—

“Can I help you, miss?”

Straightening up, I turn toward the hostess stand, which is a beautifully carved piece of wood. Standing behind it is an exotic, tall woman with long black hair, stunning grey eyes, and a massive engagement ring on her hand. Please tell me she got that rock from dating someone in this program.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s not that happiness for my life is dependent on getting married, but to see a success story in the flesh—particularly for me—would be encouraging.

“Hi, yes, I’m Noely Clark. I have a date at seven tonight with”—I lean forward, feeling silly and whisper—“with WindsorKnot.”

Her smile is kind and reassuring, making me feel a little calmer. “Yes, Miss Clark, I have you here for seven. You’re date hasn’t arrived yet, so can I show you to the bar for a drink while you wait?”

“That would be lovely, thank you.”

With my clutch tucked under my arm, I follow tall, dark, and beautiful to the bar where a very handsome Asian man is standing with a towel draped over his shoulder and a bright grin on his face. He’s wearing a button-up shirt with rolled sleeves, a brown vest covering his chest, which totally channels his inner Justin Timberlake.

“Danny, this is Miss Clark. She has a reservation at seven. Would you be so kind to make her whatever drink she would like?”

“Of course.” He winks at the hostess who presses her warm hand on my arm.

“Enjoy, Miss Clark. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. My name is Veronica, this is Danny, and we will be happy to serve you in any way.” With a parting grin, she moves back to her hostess spot.

Well, she’s nice.

“Miss Clark, please take a seat. What would you like?”

My tight, formfitting red dress makes my hop onto the bar stool a difficult task, but with a pleading prayer to the dress gods and a swift jump, I situate myself, only breaking a minor sweat.

I let out a sigh of relief and place my hands on the bar in front of me, scanning the glitzy bottles of “muscle relaxant.” “Hmm . . . how about a Moscow Mule?”

“Coming right up.” He gets to work and I watch as he magically floats around the bar, pulling the ingredients. “We recently bought new copper mugs, and I’ve been dying to use them.”

“Yeah? Am I the first?”

Winking, he says, “You are.”

If I didn’t know any better, I would say Danny is a bit of a flirt. Either that or he’s super friendly. Or simply made to be a bartender.

From beneath the bar, Danny pulls out a shiny, hammered-copper mug, and I’m instantly taken by the design. So sleek, just like its surroundings. The restaurant, with its white exposed brick, natural wood features, electric colors, and stone tabletops, is sexy, yet inviting. The friendly waitstaff is an absolute bonus. Every table is cornered off in its own spot, never getting too close to the other tables around it, and the mood lighting is on point with dim Edison bulb lights hanging from the ceiling and tabletop candles. I’m feeling the mood.

Despite the welcoming atmosphere, I can’t help but feel nervous, even after my brief exchange with WindsorKnot. There’s something to say about a blind date: the anticipation, the unknown, the knowledge that you’re having dinner with someone to possibly form a romantic relationship. It’s intimidating, but exhilarating all at the same time.

Could this be the last time I ever go on a first date? Will he like me? Will he want to get to know me?

Butterflies float around in my stomach and my cheeks heat as Danny places a napkin in front of me, topped by my drink with a lime slice on the side.

“Here you go, Miss Clark. Please enjoy.”

I smile politely. “Thank you.” When I take a sip, I’m instantly assaulted by the ginger-lime combination. Perfect. “This is fantastic.”

“Good.” Danny winks again and like an old-time bartender, starts drying a tumbler with the towel hanging over his shoulder. Eyeing me for a second, he asks, “A little nervous?”

After taking a sip from my drink, I lick my lips and nod. “Just a little.” I scrunch my nose, squinting ever so slightly. “Is it obvious?”

“Nah, you look pretty chill compared to a lot of blind daters I see come through the door.”

“Oh, I’m sure you see a lot of different reactions to these dates.” I lean forward, the cold wood of the bar cooling my sweaty hands, and whisper, “Any good stories you can tell me?”

Danny chuckles quietly and leans forward himself, taking a look from side to side before answering. “Plenty, but looks like your date just arrived.”

My date just arrived?

The temperature in the room seems to go up a thousand degrees as my body seizes and my shoulders tense. “Oh God, can you see him? Is he hot? What does he look like? Should I turn around? No, I shouldn’t, he would know I was checking him out.” Whispering a little louder, I ask again, “Just tell me, is he cute?”

Danny’s eyes scan over my head and his smile stretches across his face. “That’s for you to judge, not me.” Damn you, Danny.

Oh Christ, I’m not ready.

That’s right, I’m not freaking ready for this.

I get it, I know I said I was ready, that I wanted to do this, that I was all-in, that I wanted to find my soul mate, but now that I’m here, seconds from meeting “the one,” I’m pretty sure I’m going to throw up. Yep, I’m going to throw up. I can feel it rising.

Oh God, I’m going to retch all over him, right on his shoes. I know it. It’s bound to happen.

“Relax, you’re going to have fun,” Danny whispers before he turns to the bottles behind him.

As if the light hairs on my arm can sense it, they stand at attention as the sound of faint footsteps come closer.

Click, click, click. The cement floor leaves zero room for sneaking up on anyone.

Don’t throw up, don’t throw up. Think compliments, think pleasantries, think—

“Hello.”

Smooth molasses drips over my shoulders as the most velvet of voices I’ve ever heard echoes behind me, pulling me away from the death grip on my copper mug and turning me in my seat to face one of the most handsome and polished men I’ve ever seen.

About Meghan Quinn

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
