Temptation is a sneaky bitch that brought two men in my life and I wanted
them both. One left without saying a word. The other asked me to be his and I
said yes. I moved on...so I thought.
Life isn't a fairytale. Everyone has a secret. Everyone has a flaw. And
mine? Well, sometimes vows aren't for everyone.
They say there's two sides to every story, but the truth makes three. In
case you didn’t hear me the first time, let me repeat it.
Life isn't a fucking fairytale.

Publisher: Blue Lemon Press
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Blurb


It’s a destination wedding, Fate, Texas style, and the
thermostat isn’t the only thing about to hit its boiling point.

Lulu Nichols has
lost the love of her life.

Her best friend,
Derek, proposed to someone else. He’s marrying someone else. And oblivious to
her feelings, he’s asked her to play best man at his wedding. She can’t say no,
not without admitting her secret and ruining everything, so she pastes on a
smile and heads to Mexico to watch the man of her dreams get his happily ever
after, even if it isn’t with her.

Connor Shaw is finally
ready to claim the love of his life.

He wants Lulu. He’s
always wanted her. Even though she’s slightly crazy and seriously delusional
about her relationship with Derek. Connor is the one that brings out her fire
and matches it with his own. He’s the one that drives her just as crazy as she
drives him and it’s way past time for her to admit that all their fighting is
really just foreplay.

Together they’re
like gasoline and a match; a powder keg destined to blow, but oh how satisfying
an explosion it will be.

But is their spark
the kind that burns fast and then out? Is the heat going to Lulu’s head or is
there more to Connor than she’s ever realized? Could they possibly be meant for
forever or are they destined to always be a should’ve been?

Excerpt

“You should probably slow down there, dollface.” A deep
voice slid over her, down her spine and made her shudder. With revulsion, she
told herself. It was definitely revulsion. “Wouldn’t want to get drunk and
admit you’re in love with the groom, would ya?”
The taunt sent a red-hot surge of anger boiling beneath her
skin, turning her cheeks pink and the ice in her veins to lava as she spun to
face the man intruding on her pity party. She felt a little light headed when
she noticed how close he was standing but she attributed that to the alcohol in
her bloodstream. It only pissed her off more that it proved he was right. She
needed to slow down on the drinks or risk making a scene before the bridal
party even arrived.
God, she hated when he was right.
Connor Shaw was a stupid, know-it-all bastard. He always had
some smartass remark for her. Always. He’d been Derek’s sidekick since the
sandbox days but Lulu did not consider him a friend. He was more of a nuisance,
an ache in her head that never quite went away. Case in point, he was here now,
standing far too close to her, wearing some sort of cologne that invaded her
personal space and made her stomach twist, and looking smug as hell because he
knew, knew, that every woman in the room was looking at him
now that he had her attention.
She hated him. Despised him even. But she couldn’t blame the
women in the room for staring.
He looked like an angel, all golden and gorgeous and he had
an obnoxious habit of always managing to stand directly in the path of the sun.
Even now, in the low light of evening, a spotlight of glowing orange beamed
through the windows above, highlighting his dark blonde hair and making it look
as if he were wearing a halo. Sometimes it seemed like the sun literally
revolved around him.
It was annoying as hell.
So was that knowing twinkle in his dazzling blue eyes.
Because he wasn’t just ridiculously good looking, he also knew he
was ridiculously good looking which made him just about the biggest kind of asshole
on the planet in her estimation. He knew the effect he had on 99% of women and
the fact that she fell into the 1% that didn’t go ga-ga over him seemed to give
him some weird sort of enjoyment, which only made him more infuriating.
“I mean, unless that’s your plan.” He leaned an elbow
against the bar beside her, edging even closer so that she had to force herself
not to pull away, to put more space between them, because she knew he’d take
her retreat as a win in their never-ending game of dare. “Liquid courage?”
“Go away, Shaw.”
His head tilted slightly as if he’d expected a different
response, “Drowning your sorrows then? Have you finally admitted to yourself
that you and Dare were never meant to be?”
Her jaw clenched because, as per usual, his assumption hit
far too close to home. She attributed Connor knowing so much about her to the
fact that they’d grown up together. He’d always been there, on the edges of her
friendship with Derek, watching. Judging. He saw parts of her that she’d
thought were well hidden from everyone, even Derek, especially Derek, but
somehow Connor had seen her infatuation with their friend and he seemed to take
absolute joy in calling her out on the stupidity of it.
“I said, go away.” She slipped her hand around the glass in
front of her without looking at him but a big, warm, roughly masculine hand
closed over hers, stopping her short.
Her breath caught at the contact and she silently cursed
herself for the physical reaction. It had been too long since anyone touched
her. Anyone. It didn’t have anything to do with this man no matter how gorgeous
he was. It was the alcohol and the moroseness that had overtaken her at the
thought of Derek getting married.
Derek. Married. To someone else.
Her blood chilled and she pulled her hand away from Connor,
carefully, so as not to spill the liquid in her glass. She glared at him when
he frowned and his eyebrows drew together. He was looking at her strangely, in
a way she couldn’t place and she glanced away before he saw something else she
didn’t want him to see.
“Just… slow down on the drinks, okay doll?”
“Don’t call me that.” She instantly flinched.
“Tell me you’ll slow down, at least until dinner is served
and you put some food in your system and I won’t call you that again.” His blue
eyes were serious and she felt something inside of her begin to splinter.
Was he actually trying to take care of her? This man that
taunted her constantly? That set her every nerve ending on edge? Was he trying
to make nice for once? Because he knew this must be hard on her?
She nodded, “Okay.”
He gave her a small, cautious smile, “Okay.”
“Okay.” She tipped her drink at him.
“Okay.” He said again and she rolled her eyes because she
knew he’d do this all night if she let him get away with it.
“You can go now.” She shooed him away, “Go find someone else
to play your mind games with, Shaw.”
“But playing with you is so much fun.” 
She groaned, “If you stick around, I’m definitely going to
need another drink.”

Excerpt

Brogan had
intentionally given me a glimpse into himself by expressing his feelings in
words he’d never shared with another living soul. But in that moment, when his
eyes met mine, he offered me something else. 
Likely
unaware he’d even done so. 
He gave me
a piece of his vulnerability. His pain. A sliver of the hidden humiliation that
he kept buried beneath a painted canvas. Covered in graffiti. Locked behind
years of loss and doubt. It crossed his brow in shallow valleys of hesitation
and colored his cheeks in raw insecurity.
He was
open. Closed off. Pushing me away while desperately trying to hold me close.
It was too
much to process at once, leaving me immobile, grounded in place. The only thing
I could do was open my mouth and give him honesty. “Your words…they make my
chest hurt. As I read them, I breathed them in, and they burrowed themselves
next to my heart. Took up residence within my lungs. They’re powerful enough to
keep me safe, yet just as capable of destroying me.”
“Mercy…”
“They make
my eyes burn. Every vowel, every period. Every syllable you wrote and verse you
formed did something to me that I’ve never experienced. I’ve never read
something so beautiful, something that literally brought tears to my eyes.”
“Mercy,
that’s enough.” Beneath the stern tone and harsh shell lay a boy who couldn’t
accept my praise. “I didn’t do it for compliments. You said you didn’t know me,
so I’m showing you who I am. You think I’m using you to kill time until Jessica
comes back, and I’m trying to prove to you that I’m not. I don’t need your
approval. I need you.”
Under his
intense scrutiny, I became fully aware of my state of undress.
“I’m, uh…
I’m going to put on some pants.” I took a few steps backward, holding my shirt
down in the front.
“Hey,
Mercy? Could you do me a favor?”
I stopped
and held his stare.
“Next time
you hang out with your ex, can you tell him that if he ever contacts me again,
he’ll wish he’d never learned how to type? Thanks.”
“He did
what? He texted you?”
He went
right back to browning the meat, continuing as if he hadn’t just dropped a bomb
at my feet. “Email, but yeah. Same thing. I think he got off on telling me that
I’m runner-up. I guess you told him that you’re waiting to see if he lied about
where he was that night? And if he was telling the truth, you plan to get our
marriage annulled?”
“He twisted
what I said.”
“Then I
guess it’s a good thing I didn’t give a shit what he had to say.” He moved the
pan off the burner. “Although, I don’t think he liked it too much when I told
him I hoped he enjoyed the taste of my cum, because I fucked your pussy so hard
and so deep it’ll be a while before it’s all out.”
I was
shocked. And mortified. And incredibly turned on by his possessiveness.
“Did you
really?”
His smile
became visible in his eyes first, but half a second later, it was drawn across
his face.

Excerpt

“You can’t
get rid of me that easily.” Connor struggled to keep his tone light. He had no
idea what had gotten into Faith… unless her plans were code for a date with a
new boyfriend.  Something she had every
right to pursue, especially given that he hadn’t made a move on her.
Ever.
Their
relationship meant too much to him. Faith
was too precious to potentially lose, even if it meant he suffered in the
meantime. However, that didn’t mean he liked the fact that she was looking for
something he couldn’t possibly give her, not even with the billions he owned.
“I’m not
trying to get rid of you, Mr.—”
“Connor. I
think we’re past formalities, don’t you?” he said, peeved that she’d treat him
differently because of his last name.
She leaned
forward, her hair like a dark waterfall pooling on the top of the counter
between them. “I’m at work and I have work to do.”
“I don’t
care.” He slashed his hand through the air. “You’re using my last name to put a
wall between us.”
“Here,
there is a wall between us,” she said, her tone insistent. Her brows crashed
together as she lowered her voice, “What’s gotten into you?”
He avoided
meeting her gaze. “Are you dating someone?” He all but growled the question
like an animal. He knew the day would come that she’d find someone to replace
him, but it felt like a knife in the back.
“I have
plans to go on a date.” She crossed her arms over her chest. “You should do the
same thing. Heck, I’ll help you find someone. Okay?”
No, it
wasn’t okay because he’d already fucking found his perfect match and she stood
in front of him.  “Pass.”
She sighed
thickly. “You’re being unreasonable.”
“I’m being
honest,” he snapped.
“You’re
being a jerk and that’s not like you.”
“Maybe I’ve
changed.”
“In the last
ten minutes?” She shook her head. “I don’t think so.”
He both
loved and hated how well she knew him. “I have to go.” He stalked away, tossing
over his shoulder, “Best of luck on your date, Ms. Holt.”
“Don’t you
walk away from me, Connor Aiden Montgomery ,” she called after him.
He stopped,
slowing turning, bracing for the impact of this woman who truly didn’t give a
damn about his last name.
Faith
raised her dark brows at him, her pale blue eyes flashing. Her cheeks were pink
with anger. In her black pencil skirt, bright green blouse and conservative
heels, she looked every inch the librarian.
And she was so damn beautiful that it made his heart ache.
She marched
up to him, her finger wagging at him. “You need to apologize.”
He exhaled.
“I’m sorry.”
“That’s
better.” She smiled up at him, her plump lips a temptation that took every
ounce of his will to resist. “When we get together for dinner tonight, I expect
you to not only cook but to be in a much better mood.”
“Yes,
ma’am.”
She
narrowed her eyes. “Stop trying to distract me with your Scottish accent.”
He gave her
an innocent smile. “Wouldn’t dream of it, lass.”
“Now, I
have to go back to work.” She adjusted his tie, fussing over him and he loved
every damn second of it.  “Are we okay?”
“Yes.” He
grabbed her hand, pressing to his heart. “I promise to be on my best behavior
this evening.”
“Good
because I have high standards, and I need to know your opinion of the guy that
I have plans with this weekend.”
His gut
twisted.  “Consider me at your service.”  Only he knew, for the first time, he wouldn’t
be able to be completely honest with her.
In fact,
for the first time during their decades of friendship, he was jealous.

PENNY

The door locked
behind us, and almost immediately I felt the atmosphere of the office we'd
entered change. There was an undercurrent of arousal and need flowing, and it
definitely wasn't one-sided.

I leaned my
back against the door and studied the predator in the impeccable suit before
me. What was it about him that made me want to throw caution out the window?

"So,
what now?" I asked as he took my clutch from my hand and threw it on a
nearby table.

"You
tell me."

I pressed
my palm to his chest, loving the heat that radiated through the material of his
shirt.

"Tell
me you feel this."

"Yes."

"My
excuse is the adrenaline from the asshole earlier. What's yours?"

I licked my
lips and watched his eyes dilate. "Do I need one?"

He stepped
forward. "No, you don't." His mouth covered mine.

Dear God,
he tasted amazing, whiskey and his own natural essence. His lips were soft,
softer than I ever expected. His tongue found its way against mine, and the
kiss grew deeper. He rolled and glided, making my mind cloud with a need
suppressed for too long.

I found my
head jerked back in a tight grip as our mouths continued to duel. We ate at
each other as if we were starved.

My arms
pulled him closer, wanting nothing more than to feel all of him against me. His
hard length pressed into my stomach and my core flooded with desire.

I knew it
would be like this if I ever got a chance to kiss him. He was all-consuming and
demanding, everything I could ever want. Logic should tell me to stop, to take
a step back and think about what going any further would mean. But all I could
do was drown in the cascade of desire.

Hagen
released my hair, and his hands slid up my thighs, pulling them apart and
wrapping them around his waist. He rubbed his rock-hard cock along the seam of
my pussy and against my aching clit.

"Hagen,"
I moaned, wanting more. "I need."

"I
know what you need. I'm just not sure you can handle it." He licked down
my throat and then nipped the juncture of my neck and shoulder.

I jerked,
and my core clenched, arching into the pleasure-pain.

"More.
Please. More." I couldn't believe I was begging. Now if only I knew what I
begged for.

Hagen began
to grind his cock back and forth against the sensitive nerves at the apex of my
cleft, creating a rhythm that had every cell in my body screaming.

"Come
for me, Starlight." His hand slid farther up my skirt and then his thumb
began to stroke my clit.

I
detonated, throwing my head back as stars flashed behind my eyes. My pussy
spasmed and contracted. I lost all sense of place and time.

My arousal
flooded through my core, soaking his thumb and bringing out a groan from his
exploring mouth.

"I
can't wait to taste your sweet cunt. One day you will come while I fuck you
with my mouth."

His words
spurred another contraction.

Holy fuck.
Dirty talk got me off.

Slowly, I
came down from the best orgasm of my life and realized I was now sitting on
Hagen's lap. His erection was a brand under my bottom, and his breath was
ragged. I looked into his blue depths that almost seemed black since his pupils
ate up his eyes.

I tried to
reach for his pants, but he stilled my movement.

"I won't
take you. No matter how much I want to. Watching you come apart has to be
enough."
