Excerpt

I glance at the clock on the bedside table then turn to grab a pair of lacy boy shorts from the top drawer of my dresser, looking at him in the mirror as I speak. “I have to get to work and we both know what’s going to happen if I walk over to you.” Bending my knee, I slide my leg through one opening when a hand suddenly reaches between my legs and stops me from proceeding. I feel Mateo rise and stand behind me. Our eyes meet in the mirror as he closes the gap between our bodies, pushing his body flush with mine. When he leans forward, his erection strains against his jeans, and I can feel it at the small of my back. Without looking away, Mateo holds my attention as my hair is brushed aside and his lips find my neck. “Beautiful…” I break the connection when my eyes close, giving in to the feel of his proximity. I inhale the scent of his cologne. What feels like a thousand tiny kisses form a path to my chin as his hands slowly move over my towel and massage my breasts. Reaching for the corner of the thick cotton towel, he yanks it down in one swift motion. My eyes open and I stiffen, realizing my nakedness is on full display. “…doesn’t begin to describe you.” The kisses resume while his hands commence on a wandering mission, slowly exploring my flesh. Relishing his touch, I moan quietly and roll my hips. His reflection reveals his warm smile as he moves to nibble on my ear. Gently lifting one before the other, he guides my limp arms to the nape of his neck, allowing my fingers to find the soft tufts of his black hair. Now having full and unrestricted access to my breasts, Mateo rolls my nipples between his thumb and two additional fingers. “Mateo—” I whisper breathlessly as my core screams for attention. “Please.” “Please what, baby?” he asks, meeting my eyes in the mirror. “Touch me.” The longing and desperation in my expression is primal and raw. Pulling away just far enough that I can still feel the heat emanating from his chest, Mateo covers my hands with his as he places them on the edge of my dresser. “Hold on.” Tracing a slow line up my arms until his fingertips reach my shoulders, the contour of my back and waist is caressed. With his firm hands on my hands, he lowers himself so his lips float near my backside. I shiver when I feel his soft tongue lick slowly before placing a chaste kiss. His quiet moans cause my core to buzz with anticipation of having him in me, joining our bodies as one. Light strokes of his tongue mixed with roaming kisses give way to gentle bites. “Turn around,” he orders and I comply immediately without a second to reconsider what I’m doing or what he is doing. Kneeling before me, Mateo gazes up at me. Revealed in his eyes is a starved man, consumed by unadulterated desire. “Open,” he commands with a raspy voice, guiding my legs apart before slowly moving in to taste me. I clench my fingers tightly to prevent them from covering my face and blocking my ears because I want to watch. I want to listen. With each swirl of his tongue against my hot flesh and every pull of my nub with his teeth, we both elicit sounds of pleasure. Adding his fingers to the wonderful combination, Mateo brings me closer to the edge until I fist his dark hair, cry out his name and orgasm. Resting his lips against the smooth skin, he offers a final kiss before standing completely. My eyes flutter open slowly and gaze up at him and notice his glistening mouth. Cradling the back of his head, I lower his face and meet his lips. “More,” I breathe. “I want more.” He groans. “I do too, but I can’t give it to you right now.” Disappointment floods me and I look away only to have my chin pulled back to meet his kiss. “Thank you,” he mumbles against my mouth. I grin. “I think I should be the one saying thank you.” “The pleasure was all mine.” Maintaining eye contact, I slide my hand down his chest and cup his stiffness. “Your turn.”

After the Dust Settles (Book 3)

Sean

I’m not your average seventeen-year-old boy. 

What other teenage boy do you know of, is working alongside their father in a top-secret government agency, and has been since they were fifteen? 
Unheard of? Yes probably. 
After spending years searching for my place in this world, I jumped at the opportunity to help my father. What I didn’t expect was the possibility that our work could flow over and harm our family. 
Yet that’s exactly what happened……. 
I thought I’d found, and then lost the girl who would forever hold my heart – until a sexy ass stranger crossed my path under the Brooklyn Bridge. 
I want this girl, like I’ve never wanted anyone. She makes me feel things that I should feel guilty about, that I shouldn’t be needing as desperately as I do. 
Only there’s a catch …………. She has secrets, ones that could have a devastating impact. 

Hadley 

He was supposed to be a job. 
A target that needed to be eliminated. 
A message that we weren’t a family to mess with. 
When my chance came, I couldn’t do it. There was a presence about him that drew me in. I went from wanting to kill him, to wanting him in my arms.
From that moment on he became my obsession…. 
I’m no good for him, which is why I should stay away from him. I will only destroy him because I’m broken, a girl with a dark past - the daughter of an Italian mobster. Our family is one of the largest in Brooklyn. 
I need to escape my father, and this life. 
I need someone to swoop in and save me, but I’m scared because bad things happen to me – and the people I love.

Coming Home (Book 4)

The day Peyton Jessop walked into my life I was six years old. 

I’d spent that whole summer wondering if anyone would ever move into the creepy old Barkley house next door to me. Just before school started I watched as a van pulled up, and a browned hair little girl clutching a stuffed bear climbed out. 

Peyton was feisty and fun to be around, but her life at home was troubled. That brown haired girl weaved her way into my heart. 

She was supposed to be my ever after. 

Well ……. that was the plan until her mother died, and her father ripped her away from me.

But what is the most amazing part is the twists and the weaving of the characters and the story line at those pinnacle moments that has you gripping your device and holding it close keeping you turning each page until you get to the end and then leaves you in disbelief that the story is over.” – Lisa White, Amazon Review
