3.5 Paw Stars

I feel this book has a great story plot. The story takes a little while to take off and get in to the thick of the story. I also felt that the story repeated it’s on that background of the main characters. This is a well written book. I loved the description of things from beat sheets to how the room looked, you feel like you are right there see what they are.

Too Much To Lose - Teaser 1

Excerpt 1 PG

“If you’re in trouble, I know some people who can help.”
“I’m not in trouble. Really, I’m not. I mean who would want to kill me? I know bankers aren’t exactly popular—” she lets loose a shaky laugh “—but I’m harmless.”
Harmless? Not sure about that. Jess sends my heart racing, makes my skin clammy. She’s driving me insane. Harmless? No way.
“What do you want me to do?” I ask.
“Shall I stick around?”
“Oh. No, you don’t need to do that.”
“I don’t mind.”
“I’m fine. Seriously. Thank you for today. You must be tired and I bet your side hurts.”
It does, but I’m not going to admit to that. “It’s fine.”
“Look about that kiss….”
“That was my fault.”
“I kissed you.”
“You did.” I can’t resist letting my mouth curve upwards. She kissed me, but I don’t know if that’s a bad or a good thing. While my pride basks in it, the voice inside that keeps pulling at my gut wants to scream at her to run while she still can. I’m no good for her. “But I kissed you back,” I point out. “And I should not have been… er… touching you out there.”
She draws her bottom lip between her teeth. “It’s okay.”
Hell, how do those two tiny words send an arrow of need straight to my cock? It’s okay that I was kissing her? Or touching her up? It’s okay that I want her so badly I nearly bent her over my bike to fuck her?
Before I can dwell on it anymore and make an even bigger fool of myself, I get to my feet. “Will you let me stay?”
“I don’t think so. It’s too risky.”
A hard knot forms in my throat. I’m more dangerous to her than a crazed gunman it seems. She might be right. If—when—I find that money, her whole life is going to come crashing down.
“Don’t answer the door to anyone. Be careful. Call me if you need me. In fact, call me tomorrow.” She follows me to the door. “Please?” I add as uncertainty dashes across her face.
Jess opens the door and I step out. “I’ll call you,” she says when I turn to face her.
She rolls her eyes and her mouth curves. “I promise.”
Those lush lips snare my attention and my own smile drops. My skin feels hot and itchy, my pulse urgent. This is insane. I rest an arm against the door frame, my feet still firmly planted on the other side of the threshold and bring my mouth slowly down on hers. She softens but doesn’t touch me. We’re divided by the invisible line between the corridor and her room. I can’t help thinking of it as symbolic. We’re divided by secrets and lies.
Not that any of that matters once our lips connect. I swear I’ve never wanted to kiss a woman so much. Kisses are about the end game. But not with Jess. I want to drown in her kisses, to kiss her all day and see if I ever tire of them. I suspect it’s unlikely.

Happy young couple in love

EXCERPT (Exclusive excerpt, not posted before)

From story two, Handy Hubby Hire 18+ rated excerpt

Sara got through the front door before she lost her composure. Smiles wreathed her face. She grasped the business card and looked at the words embossed there. She read it aloud focusing on the name. Griffen Fox, and what a fox he is. He is…gorgeous. What will happen tomorrow? I know what I’d like to happen. Will that be it, he’ll rock up, do the jobs and disappear as if we didn’t have sex, as if we didn’t gaze at each other and want more, want to fuck each other’s brains out all night? She sighed. She sat at her desk and relived his kisses. Her nipples hardened. She pictured his huge, hard cock. Her pussy clenched and drenched her fresh panties. She licked her lips. I wish I was with him now. I want his lips on mine, his hands on my ass. This is probably not good for me. I’ll crave sex again now. Damn it.
Sara remembered the months after Jem left. She missed him, their conversations, their walks, but she missed sex more. She missed the hard shape of a man’s body, the taste of his cum. She missed it badly and she’d craved it until she despaired. There’d been no one else. She didn’t meet men in everyday life.
She went to make more coffee. I’m addicted to this stuff.
That night Sara tossed and turned. She considered masturbating because she needed release, but she knew she longed for a man’s fingers, a man’s mouth on her breasts, preferably Griffen’s. Her own fingers wouldn’t do, not after sex with Griffen. Sometime just before dawn she fell asleep.
She sat bolt upright as the sun streamed in through her bedroom window. The angle of the rays told her it was quite late. She leapt out of bed and checked the time on her cell phone.
Half an hour to shower before Griffen Fox arrived. Her heart started beating faster as she daydreamed about his kiss and his mouth on her skin. She raced to shower and dress.
Her hands shook as she made a cup of coffee. She went to look out of her front windows and watch for his arrival. “Calm the fuck down,” she told herself aloud, but when his truck pulled into her driveway her heart thumped.

SEAL - Excerpt Button


Friday couldn’t come fast enough for Tyler. He boarded the plane from San Diego and in just under two

hours touched down at Schulz International Airport. Kate ran to him as soon as he entered the small

terminal. He dropped his bag and accepted her body slam willingly.

His heart was overjoyed. He’d been heavy with worry she’d call him and postpone their get together,

and he’d have to go out of country without being with her one more time.

Her lips were urgent. She clung to him with fierce need, which was just about the biggest turn-on and

something he hadn’t dared to dream was possible. He felt her need match and melt into his as the

steamy sparks flew and his hands smoothed over her satin skin. Her sweet softness and fresh scent

given up to him so willingly, so utterly compliant made him wish somehow his deployment was over,

that this was the homecoming he’d get when he could finally stay for more than just two nights.

Two little nights! It’s all they had left. He wanted to see everything about where she grew up, meet her

folks. Even take a good look at her asshole of a former fiancé and let him know that he was the man

he’d have to answer to if the guy had any designs on her. Of course, he was all in. And, thank the God of

SEALs, it looked like she wanted him right there next to her as tight as they could get.

“Baby it was way too long. We should just go runaway,” he kissed into her hair at the side of her head.

“We could disappear. Wanna disappear?”

That little giggle as she snuggled under his chin, as her arms came up his back, pulling him into her. Her

fingers migrated to comb through the curls at the top of his spine, stroking and squeezing. Her hard

pubic bone rode his shaft through his jeans. He pressed her there, hurting with need, and then just


“If you weren’t the man I know you to be, Tyler, I’d take you up on it. God I wish I had a few million

stashed away somewhere so we could just do that. But we have this.” She stood on tiptoes and placed

her succulent lips across his.

“And this is pretty damned good, baby.”

“The best.”

With one arm wrapped tight about her waist he practically carried her through the glass doors of the

terminal to the parking lot beyond, slinging his bag over his left shoulder. Her feet barely touched the

floor. She hung onto his shoulders, using her right thigh to gently balance against his hipbone as he

walked. She wasn’t light, but he’d carry her all the way to San Francisco if she’d let him. And heck, he

and his buddies had carried telephone poles up and down the goddamned beach in a full run in combat

boots without hardly breaking a sweat.

She’d started to get out her keys and he swiped them from her, giving her another kiss when she

showed that fresh smile again. He stowed his bag in the hatch and they drove toward the freeway,

heading north.

He found the little town of Healdsburg to be charming, reminding him of some of the villages in the

South of France, or New England where shops surrounded a lawn square complete with a gazebo and

park benches. The square was a gathering place, and he noted the foot traffic was so thick, maneuvering

the car to make a right turn as she had instructed, was tricky.

They drove down a wide street with grand houses, most of them early California or large bungalow

style. At a light green mansion, she ordered him to turn right and pointed around the corner to the back

of the property, where he located a lemon yellow cottage.

“Nice, Kate. Love it.”

“Thank you.” She said bashfully. He could see she was thinking about what they’d be doing just as soon

as he got them properly naked. He liked that she was shy, that her cheeks had that just-kissed blush on

her fair peachy skin. She stole little glances at him which set his insides on fire. He’d never wanted a

woman more.
