The Story… 

When ratings for her popular DIY show start to circle the drain after the sudden death of her sister, Charlotte “Charlie” Conti has only one mission—to plan a comeback. But her sister had other plans. As part of the will, Charlie must work with him  to create a memorial scholarship in her sister’s memory. The same him  Charlie fell in love with three years ago while working at a summer camp.

The same him she dumped to protect his heart.

Sexy British player, Nate Walsh, has sixty days to find a new job or he’ll be deported back to England where he’s no longer welcome. He doesn’t have time to work on a memorial scholarship with her. The same her  who shattered his heart without explanation or warning.

The same her  he’s never gotten over.

Unable to agree on a benefactor for the scholarship, Nate and Charlie challenge each other to a winner-takes-all competition. They both know the only way to win is to turn up the heat and tease one another with the one thing they both want: each other. But as sparks fly, their true feelings resurface. Nate and Charlie must decide if their love is worth the effort or if they’ll allow their disastrous past mistakes to destroy their chance at forever.

Excerpt

Will grabbed my hand and led me toward a semi-hidden corridor at the secluded end of the establishment. “I can’t wait until tonight,” he told me as I followed willingly.

He slammed my back against the wall and covered my body with his much larger frame when we reached a point hidden from wandering eyes. “The sound of your soon-to-be name makes my cock so fucking hard for you, Chloe,” he growls. Possessing my mouth unapologetically, he devours my whimpers and with precision slips his hand beneath my dress to pull my panties to the side.

Panting with need and already oblivious to anyone who might walk past and spot us, I happily spread my legs to allow him to work his magic. I would never deny him. I couldn’t. He owned me; mind, body and soul. And he knew it.

Two fingers deep inside my soaking pussy, I grind myself against his hand. The heat of his kisses trail down my neck, across my collarbone and make their way to the tops of my breasts, driving me wild. His erection was hard against my midsection as he seduced me, almost to my knees. The harder he pumped his fingers, the louder I moaned until he took my mouth again and fucked me senseless with his tongue.

In less than a minute I came completely undone around him, pulling at the short lengths of his dark hair, sucking at his tongue as I rode out my orgasm over his fingers. This man could take me anywhere, and the result was always the same. I couldn’t get enough of him.

Swaying in my moment of ecstasy I started to unbuckle his belt to release the button on his jeans. I could feel how badly he needed a release too.

“Fuck, little one. You’re so goddamn beautiful,” Will whispered into the cusp of my neck.

The pocket of his shirt started to vibrate, he ignored it or didn’t notice as I took out his cock and began to stroke it. When it started again only seconds after it ended, I grabbed the phone and handed it to him. I slowly began to slide down the wall until I was crouched before him. Will watched with raw hunger in his eyes as I came to rest my ass on my heels to avoid marking my bare knees on the concrete floor.

I teased the tip of his cock with my tongue, his groan making my core wetter. “Answer it, Will.” The phone still buzzed in his hand. He groaned with displeasure and flicked open the phone. “Jamie, what’s up?” he breathed heavily into the phone as I took him deep into my mouth.

I could vaguely hear Jamie laughing on the other end. “You, I’m guessing. Can’t you leave that poor woman alone for thirty minutes, man? Get your ass here, it’s your turn to buy drinks, and we’re thirsty fuckers.”

Will grunted, slammed the phone shut and clutched my head while he guided himself in and out of my mouth with perfect, even strokes.

It was no secret, our sexual appetite for each other. Even if we’d wanted to, we couldn’t hide it. We were in love.

Will was my drug.

His moans grew louder, and his hold on my head tighter. He was close. I could taste the pre-come when I flicked my tongue seductively in and out of the small opening at the tip. I pumped my fist up his length as I toyed with the head of his cock, licking, sucking and finally taking him all the way to the back of my throat.

A deep growl rose from his chest and he began to drive his cock into my mouth at a fast pace.  I loved giving head, it was the only time he allowed me complete control.

“That’s it, baby, yes,” Will panted. “I’m gonna blow.” I sucked harder and moaned around his cock until he emptied his load into me. Licking my lips, I looked at him from beneath hooded eyes.

“So, I heard you’re buying,” I teased.

Guest Post: From Blogger to Author

by Maci Dillon

A few years ago I set up a Facebook profile under my pen name, Maci Dillon and started to implant myself into the world of Indie authors and publishing, with the view that one day I would finally publish something. Along the way, I met some magnificent authors and bloggers who challenged and supported me in ways I couldn’t imagine.

The blog I originally started, Love Lust & Erotic pleasures, was a place to show off some of my poorly written, unedited erotic scenes and it soon became a dedicated book blog offering PA services, author promotional and PR services. I had fallen in love with promoting authors and their books. The blog is now often referred to as LLEP Book Blog.

While this delayed my own writing, I’m all for going with the flow and seeing what happens. I couldn’t be happier with my journey so far. I learned so much from blogging, authors started reaching out to me for PA services and at one point I was PA’ing for six authors. The lessons learned have been so valuable in my own journey as an author so far. Being a blogger first, has most definitely given me the utmost respect for bloggers and all they do for the authors they support and my network is absolutely incredible.

Without a doubt, if I hadn’t been on the blogger and PA journey first, I would be completely lost with how to do all the things an author needs to do. Of course, people publish books all the time without ever having been a blogger but the steps to publishing and organizing promotions have been so easy having done all I have for others in the past few years. Above all things, I would never have created the relationships I have, with authors and bloggers, if I didn’t start out as a blogger.

My experience as a blogger has been an invaluable one and I have no intention of giving it up just yet.

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS…

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace: he has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You’d like to get to know Grace better. But it’s difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are never apart. Some might call this true love.

Picture this: a dinner party at their perfect home, the conversation and wine flowing. They appear to be in their element while entertaining. And Grace’s friends are eager to reciprocate with lunch the following week. Grace wants to go, but knows she never will. Her friends call—so why doesn’t Grace ever answer the phone? And how can she cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim?

And why are there bars on one of the bedroom windows?

The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie?

MY REVIEW: 5 TERRIFYING STARS

There are novels you can’t put down — and there are others you HAVE to put down simply to take your next breath and wrap your mind around the story. Behind Closed Doors is a genuinely terrifying, powerful, compelling thriller with relentless, mind-blowing suspense that was so intense I found myself walking away more than once. But it’s so well-written that once you engage in the story, you can’t help but hang on for dear life until the end. It’s an incredibly dark, twisted tale with an antagonist so deeply disturbed he will haunt you for days after you put it down. I don’t believe I’ve ever hated an antagonist more; nor could I find anything to redeem him, or any way to justify how he grew up to become his new wife’s ultimate nightmare.

The story is one of devious, calculated manipulation, from start to finish; a reminder that “if it seems to good to be true, it probably is.” The heroine, Grace, is held captive by the force of sheer terror, and a deep fear of what might happen to her vulnerable young sister, Millie, if she doesn’t comply with the demands of her deeply psychopathic husband. Outwardly, Jack Angel is a self-sacrificing, generous, charming, successful attorney who represents women in abusive relationships. He’s never lost a case, never shown a sign of weakness in his relentless pursuit of perfection. But behind closed doors, as the title implies, Jack is the personification of the pure evil all women fear…the monster behind the mask. Grace is powerless to expose him for what he truly is. He’s crossed every ‘T’ and dotted every ‘i’ in crafting the perfect scenario to keep her captive and take everything she loves away from her before it’s all over.

There is very little overt violence in the story, and although it deals with domestic abuse, it’s not of a sexual or violent nature. Rather, it’s the worst form of emotional torture and psychological terror imaginable. It’s the systematic, meticulous breakdown of the human spirit and the will to survive. It’s a carefully executed plan to instill helplessness and hopelessness in a victim to the point that she loses the desire and the capacity to fight back, and it appears flawless. The conclusion seems to be obvious. But is it? That’s the question that will keep you reading long into the night.

Behind Closed Doors is a debut novel well worth reading. It is incredibly, frightfully plausible, with an intensity unmatched by any other contemporary thriller I’ve read this year…or last. While frequently compared to Gone Girl, it goes beyond in delivering a flawlessly executed, heart-pounding conclusion. It taunts, teases, twists and lingers in the mind for days. It may be intensely difficult to read, and seem impossible to finish with your sanity intact. Fortunately, despite the psychological cruelty portrayed in the story, the tenacity of the heroine gives the reader hope and a reason to believe that she will prevail before it’s too late to escape a fate worse than death.

Readers, be warned; this is a no-holds-barred thriller that will haunt you for days – perhaps weeks. But I guarantee, you’ll never forget it. If you love stories that drag you to hell and back, give you hope, then snatch it away until you think you can’t stand the tension anymore…don’t wait to check out Behind Closed Doors. It’s a knock-out.
