Hooked by Emily McIntire




Title: Hooked
Series: Never After #1
Author: Emily McIntire
Genre: Dark Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 7, 2021


BLURB

Once upon a time, there was a little boy.
His belly full of laughter, his life full of joy.
Until one day something changed; stripped his innocence away.
The hole inside making space for the devil to come and play.
His dreams gone forever, he grew up way too fast.
An endless night of crocodiles and watches made of glass.
He grew into a villain, the taste of vengeance on his tongue.
Craving to make his enemies pay for the misdeeds they had done.
Instead he found a darling girl and refused to let her go.
For what better way to make a man pay, than to steal his little shadow.

EXCERPT

“Beautiful,” he says.

It’s one word, but it caresses me like velvet, my insides purring at his approval. “You too.”

He smirks. “You think I’m beautiful?”

His tone is playful, and it ignites that same foreign fire from the first night we met, when I wondered what it would feel like to be a different type of Wendy. My eyebrow quirks. “What, you think a man can’t have beauty?”

“A man can have many things, darling.” He steps in closer. “But the only beauty I hope to have tonight is yours.”

My stomach flips, butterflies bursting like a cannon. “Your mouth should be illegal,” I mutter. “So… where are you taking me?”

Angie laughs. “Who cares where he’s taking you, girl? Just go.” She makes a shooing motion with her hands.

James glances her way before resting his palm on my lower back. “She’s right, you know. You should relax, let me wine and dine you properly.” He leans in, his lips skimming the top of my ear. “And if you’re a good girl, maybe I’ll show you the real reason why my mouth should be illegal.”

Heat floods my body, swirling through my insides and pulsing between my legs. I huff out a surprised breath, my fingers pushing against his chest. “That’s extremely presumptuous.”

His eyes sparkle, his hand never leaving my back as he moves me toward the door. “Just letting you know what’s on the menu.”

He leads me outside to a blacked-out Audi. My hand reaches to grasp the handle, but before I can, he’s there, opening the door and helping me in. My heart skips. Such a simple gesture, but one that makes me feel special. Taken care of.

“I feel like I should be offended,” I say as he slides into the driver’s seat.

He grins, starting the car but leaving it idle as he twists to look at me. “Why?”

“You just told me to be a good girl, and you’d… you know.”

His brow rises. “I’m not sure I do.” He moves quickly, leaning over the console, his body crowding me until I press back against the seat. He skims his nose up my neck, and my stomach cramps so tight I lose my breath. “Because I want to put my mouth on you?” His lips dance from my ear down my jaw until they’re hovering above mine. My heart slams against my chest. I am so out of my element. “I promise you’d like it,” he whispers.

And just like that, his body heat disappears as he moves to his side of the car and reverses out of the lot.

EXCERPT

“You’re a liar,” he growls, his breath hot only neck. “You say you don’t want me to control you, but you love it when I do. You scream and you moan and you beg for it, don’t you?”

My eyes squeeze shut as I stumble around in this land of sick and twisted pleasure.

A strong force tugs my hair, eliciting a strangled gasp to escape from my lips.

“Don’t you?” he thunders.

“Yes!” I screech.

My God, I am so weak for this man. So incredibly and pathetically weak.

He pulls off his shirt, his eyes hooded and dark with an insatiable hunger…for power, for control…for me?

Maybe all of the above.

He’s right. I am a liar.

I say I don’t want him to control me, but I do. I want him to claim me, to own me…

To love me.

Not because he is contracted to, but because I have penetrated his soul in the exact way he’s completely looted mine.

EXCERPT

“Right. So for Texas Hold’em, we each get five cards,” I say quickly, nodding to Hunter. He doles out our hands, and then I get into explaining the different types of hands—royal flush, straight flush, 4 of a kind, etc. “I think it’ll be easiest if we play a straight five-card draw, so from our five cards, we can take turns exchanging one or more of them from the remaining deck.” I look at Hunter, and then at each of the guys. “Ready?”
“Easy enough,” Ash muses from across from me. “You start, little lamb.”
This place brings out the wild in us.
I can feel all of them watching me, and the hairs on the back of my neck begin to tingle.
We take turns exchanging cards until we’re all satisfied with our hands. We each lay down our cards. I have a straight flush, but Ledger has a royal flush.
“I win,” he smirks, nodding to my jacket. “Strip.”
My eyes snap to his, and something heated looks back at me. Something, not someone—almost like he’s no longer human. Not my friend—but an animal. I pull my lower lip between my teeth as I remove my jacket, and Samson begins to reshuffle the cards for the next round.
“You guys have to strip, too,” I command, glaring at Hunter, Ash, and Samson.
And they do.
The air turns then—and I’m suddenly so aware of that fact that all five of us are out here together. Alone. Teenage hormones raging, dirty thoughts racing…it’s not like there’s not a precedent. Aside from Ledger, I’ve slept with all of them. So why are my hands shaking? Don’t I trust them? Is it just being with them together—or the uncertainty of what could happen? Up here, it almost feels like there are no rules.
We continue to play. I manage to win the next round, and as the guys take off another article of clothing, my senses awaken. I can smell the cologne Hunter uses, and the laundry detergent on Samson’s shirt. The light, while bright, feels artificial, and I reach over to turn it down a couple of notches so that it’s dimmer in here. I can feel the body heat radiating off each of them—and my own, as my chest flushes with color at Ash’s lingering gaze. The clicking of the shuffling cards reverberates down my spine as Samson shuffles, his eyes never leaving mine. I end up losing my shirt, and then my pants, and I must actively keep my gaze on the floor of the tent, the plastic sticking to the backs of my bare thighs.
Hunter bought me a few new lingerie sets, including this one—a white, lace push-up bra that does wonders for my boobs, accompanied by a high-waisted, white thong.
“You wore that to camp?” Samson grits out, incredulous.
“I bought it for her,” Hunter mumbles.
A twig snaps outside the tent, and the adrenaline that courses through me, the way my heart pounds against my ribs, just adds to the intensity of the game. The dim light exaggerates our shadows, so that each movement causes the light in the large tent to flicker. I swallow as the only sound I hear is an owl hooting, and the cards flicking against the fabric of the tent floor. Everyone is silent, and I dig my nails into my palms nervously. Each of them still watches me like a hawk—like they want to take turns devouring me whole.
I can’t help but admit to myself that I want them to.
I want all of them.

Iceman must face the demons of his past while Gabriella must face the monsters of her future. Are either of them willing to pay the price of their redemption?



I've had stories in my head since I was a child.  All sorts of stories of fantasy, romance, mystery and anything else that captured my interest.  I'm a voracious reader, and have spent many hours in my life devouring books, therefore it's only fitting I should write a few myself!  

I've spent most of my life as a performing musician and band instrument repair technician, but that doesn't mean I'm pigeon-holed into one mold.  I've been a university professor, belly dancer, craftsperson, soap maker, singer, rock band artist, jewelry maker, lifeguard, swim coach, and whatever else I feel like exploring.  As one of my students said to me once, "Life's too short to ignore the opportunities."   I have no intention of ever stopping so welcome to my story world.  I hope you enjoy it!

Cord Spellman might be everyone’s Prince Charming, but I’m only his fake Cinderella.

Since my dad died and my mom bailed, I’ve been living in a trailer park, barely making ends meet. I can take care of myself, as demonstrated by my acceptances to a handful of elite music graduate programs. So what if funding my success has meant sacrificing my college social life?

That’s why Cord’s offer is perfect. The hot hockey star has playoffs coming up. He doesn’t have time for girls, especially his cheating ex who’s determined to get back together with him. He needs to focus on his game, so he asks me to divert the attention—as his fake girlfriend.

I pretend to be in love with him and get a taste of the party life before graduation. Cord is free to concentrate on hockey. But when the line blurs between what’s real and what’s fake, can we create our own fairy tale ending?

EXCERPT

“Thank you for sticking up for me.”
The way she says it, it sounds like it’s a rare occurrence, and I wonder exactly what this girl has to deal with in her life. I’ve seen her around and know she works at the library, but I assumed she’s like all the Chesterboro kids, raised wealthy or at least well-enough off. She certainly has the confidence of the rest of them. But Hannah looks like someone used to relying on herself.
I have the sudden raging desire to be someone she can lean on.
To avoid all that, I pop the trunk, slide out, grab her guitar out of the back, then slam the trunk closed. She joins me, hiking the same leather bag she’d carried on Friday onto her shoulder. “Have a good jam session.”
She wrinkles her brow and nose as if trying to figure something out. “It’s a composition class.”
“Writing?”
“No.” She laughs, and the sound hits me in the groin. “Music composition.”
“So writing music. Like I said.” She laughs again, and the sound makes me so happy, I immediately want to hear it again.
“Right.” She shrugs her guitar onto her back. I hadn’t realized the case had straps like a backpack. “Thanks again for the ride.”
“No problem.” I step back and clear my throat.
She grins. My gaze drops to her mouth, lingers. I stifle the sudden urge to step closer, to get into her space, to cover her lips with mine. She’s lovely, sure, but I’ve met lots of pretty girls. There’s something about her, though, a thread of steel that makes me want to learn everything she’s trying to hide behind her walls.
Except she said she wasn’t interested, and getting any closer to her isn’t an option for me. I’ve got playoffs coming, and it’s my last chance to impress scouts. My life doesn’t need any more complications. That means it doesn’t need Hannah Marshall.
