I was lifting weights in the training center with Sinner, Cazzo, Burg, and Chance a few days later. I was sweating like crazy in more than one place and it was f@$king uncomfortable. The moisture was making my boxers rub against my freshly waxed skin, making it itch like crazy. I set down the weights and tried to discreetly itch the irritated skin.
Sinner caught me and quirked an eyebrow. “Jock itch?”
“No.” I turned away and itched at the skin again. It f$%king burned. There was no way I was ever getting a wax again.
Sinner walked over and put his hand on my shoulder. “Dude, it’s not really cool to itch yourself in a room full of men.”
I looked at his my shoulder where his hand was and raised an eyebrow. He pulled back suddenly as if he had been burned. 
“Genital warts?”
“No,” I almost yelled.
“Dude, if you have pubic lice, you need to get the f#$k out of here.”
Cazzo, Burg, and Chance turned and looked at me warily. I saw Chance’s eyes drop to my crotch for just a moment. 
“I don’t f#$king have pubic lice.”
“Then why the hell are you scratching so much?” Sinner asked.
What the hell. Maybe one of them knew what to do. “I was following Lucy, trying to run into her, you know, like we talked about. I wasn’t watching where she was headed and I followed her into the spa.”
Sinner grinned, “First time, huh?”
“First time what?” Cazzo asked.
“Pappy, please tell me that you just did some manscaping,” Burg pleaded.
“They did something called a Hollywood.”
Sinner started laughing hysterically and Burg cringed. “What?” Chance asked. “What the hell is a Hollywood?”
“They waxed every inch of him,” Sinner laughed.
“Why would you do that?” Chance asked. 
“F$%king Maggie. She was there for a spa day with Claire and Lucy. She insinuated that I was there to make an appointment for a girlfriend and I didn’t want Lucy to think I was sending another woman to the spa.”
“So you put hot wax on your junk instead?” Cazzo asked.
“I didn’t know they were going to do all that. I thought it would just be a little touch up.”
“But why did it hurt so bad?” Sinner asked. “I’ve done it, but I’ve never itched like that,” he said, pointing to my crotch.
“I have a lot of hair. I usually just trim, but the woman said it was very thick.”
“Still,” Burg shook his head. “It shouldn’t be that bad. Drop your pants.”
“What? I’m not dropping my pants.”
Sinner rolled his eyes. “We’re all men. We’ve all seen a penis before. Do you want help or not?”
I looked at all of them and decided what the hell. What could it hurt? When I pulled my shorts down, they all cringed. Sinner let out a hissing noise and Chance covered his own crotch like he would somehow catch the itching.
“That looks painful,” Cazzo said, turning to Sinner. “Is that normal?”
“That most definitely is not normal. Did you use the cream?”
“What f$%king cream?”
Sinner shook his head. “You have to use the cream. I bet it feels like it’s on fire right now.”
I'm a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, "No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book." I didn't think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn't already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven't been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.

You’ve met the men of BAM. Now get to know the rebel.
Who is Reid Matthews?
A child, abandoned and unloved.
A teen, adrift and disregarded, using his superior tech skills for the wrong intentions.
A young adult, his future overshadowed by his prison record, his life an endless loop of loneliness.
Until he is given a second chance and a new life emerges.
A career he once thought he could only dream of, surrounded by people who show him that family and home aren’t simply words.
And a girl who shows him the greatest, most complex code he could ever write. 
We spent the entire day together. I worked on the system, with Becca acting as my assistant. More than once, she rose up on her toes for a kiss. More than once, I had her pressed to the wall, devouring her mouth. It was the best install I had ever done.
“You are such a good kisser,” she murmured against my mouth. “How can a virgin be so good at kissing?”
Pleased she was enjoying my caresses, I grinned. “I have kissed girls and women, but, as I said, I haven’t gone beyond that.” I cupped her face, dragging my lips across her cheek to her sensitive earlobe. “I was waiting for the right person.”
“And I’m that person?”
“Yes,” I stated with conviction, dropping another kiss to her mouth. “You are.” I ran my fingers over my lips, then grabbed my drill.
“Why do you do that?”
“Do what?”
“You press your fingers on your mouth every time we kiss.”
“Oh, ah…” I stalled, looking over her shoulder. I felt heat prickle my neck.
“Tell me,” she insisted. “I want to know.”
“I like how it feels when you kiss me. I guess I’m sort of sealing you into me. Keeping your taste locked into my mouth.”
She stared at me, blinking and silent.
“Is that weird? It’s weird. I’m sorry.”
I wasn’t prepared when she launched herself at me. The drill flew one way; we hit the wall behind me, a mass of entangled arms and legs, her mouth on mine, hard and passionate. I slid down the wall to the floor, taking her with me. She was ferocious in her intensity, her kisses deep and possessive.
“You say the most erotic words,” she groaned. “Sealing my taste into you?”
“So, not weird?” I moaned as she kissed her way down my neck.
“No, not weird.” She hovered over me, her dark hair falling like a waterfall around us. “You turn me on like no man has ever done, Reid. Ever.” She kissed me again.
I was good with that.

Ried has by far been my favorite of the BAM series. I loved Ried's innocence and his honesty. He was such an endearing character. He broke my heart and made me laugh out loud. I had such a good time watching his character grow and blossom. Becca was the perfect balance to his character and the pieces of the story fit together like the perfect puzzle.
