Excerpt

“Nate?” I whisper. “Maybe I took a wrong turn.”

Silence.

“Nate!” I yell down the phone. “This isn’t funny.”

“I’m not laughing, sis. Keep going, we can see your headlights.” What am I doing? I’m basically relying on the fact that Nate and I had bonded a little and that both our parents are together. I’m not sure those facts are worth my life. No, he wouldn’t. I’m just being paranoid. The only time, except for school, where I didn’t bring my fucking pistol either. I sag in defeat. My dad will not be impressed with my not carrying, and my mom will no doubt be screaming at me from the other side about how these are the reasons why she and my dad educated me so much on firearms. I’ve failed as a fucking daughter. I shuffle up in my seat.

“Nate, I don’t fucking see anything up here but ja—OMG!” I slam on the breaks, all four tires locking up in a skid. I squeeze the steering wheel tightly, banging down the locks on the doors. “Nate!” I yell into the phone.

Silence.

Slowly, I look up out the front windscreen, the thick dust from my tires interrupting the loose gravel still floating in the air and that’s when I see it again.

Ten men.

Ten dark hoodies covering their faces.

Ten—“Nate..” understanding sets in. Ten.

Slamming the gear into reverse, I’m just about to floor it backwards—to hell with anything or anyone behind me—when my driver’s window smashes into a million pieces, the tiny shards of glass falling onto my lap. I scream, my hands coming up to shield my face just as an arm slips inside and pops up the lock.

A deep menacing chuckle breathes over the back of my neck just as a leather gloved hand wraps around my mouth and pulls me out of the car. “Hello Madison. You don’t know us, but we know you. We want to play a game. Here’s what happens if you lose…”

Book Review: ‘She’s the Boss’ by Ava Sterling

shes-the-boss

Title: She’s the Boss

Published: 16th November 2016

Publisher: Red Lace Publishing

Author: Ava Sterling

Twitter: @ava_sterling

Synopsis:

Kylie discovers that she likes to take charge in the bedroom as well as the board room.

Struggling to keep her magazine company in business and recovering from a recent breakup, she feels high strung. And on top of that, she can’t stop staring at Nick, her magazine’s graphic designer. With the two of them left alone one night at the office, she decides to find out just how well he can take directions.

(This explicit story is intended for adult readers only)

Review:

I liked the flow of this one, had a good pace to it. Kylie’s the boss in more ways than one. She’s a strong confident woman getting her stride back after being dumped by her long-term boyfriend. An opportunity arises when alone late at night in the office with her younger employee Nick. Once he gives her the all clear there is no stopping her from getting what she wants – not that he complains one bit.

Kylie has been without sex for a while since she broke up with her boyfriend so you can see early on that she is a bit frustrated. It doesn’t help that she has a very good-looking younger employee who happens to get her motors running. She just needs to try and put him and his good looks out of her mind and focus on her magazine or it will go under. Its because she is focusing so hard at the end of the day that she doesn’t realise that long after everyone else has gone she is left alone with just him. He seems very eager to please, working late to help out, and this seems to awaken a dominant side to her personality that she didn’t really know she had. Good really as soon she starts to see a submissive side to him. She just has to figure out how to play it to get a good release for both of them.

You can feel the sexual tension coming off both of them. It builds the longer they are left in each other’s company so you know what is coming. Nick clearly wants to please Kylie professionally and personally with how he is around her. I like when he is caught looking at her bending over her desk and stammers a bit when she asks, “do you see something you like?” You can see that he isn’t completely sure how he wants to behave but soon hands over control to Kylie very willingly – not that she is complaining. He might want to submit to her but you see that at times when the passion gets high that he wants to top from the bottom with claiming his own pleasure. But hey at this point Kylie has already gotten off a handful of times so its not like he isn’t owed.

Again with this one, like with most of Ava’s other stories, you get a good feel for the characters and their lives quickly. You step into their world once its already been developed and are viewing it for a moment in time while hoping to return later down that line for an update. With this one you can see it would be the start of something. Kylie might want to control Nick but with her thoughts from earlier in the day you get the impression that she would submit if it meant he would bend her over the meeting desk. Think she likes the idea of being a bit naughty in the office place, but hey its her office.

Excerpt

Despite the heartbreak he caused me, the feelings I had for him have never completely disappeared. Reduced, definitely, but they’re still there. A first love leaves a special imprint on one’s heart. There was so much good with us, but also so much bad, and Brayden left me with a view that love will always be tainted. The L word is now a dirty word and something I’m incapable of. Serious relationships are non-existent in my life. He made sure he destroyed them for me, just like he shattered my happiness.

Relaxing into my pillows and releasing a breath, I try to calm my racing heart. Closing my eyes, I silently hope and pray that I will sleep better for the rest of the night. As I begin to settle in, a strange sensation prickles over my already clammy skin.

Someone’s watching me.

My eyes open slightly and move to a dark silhouette standing in my doorway. Panic begins to take over, and my machines beep crazily once again. Fumbling for my buzzer, I know I need a nurse, but as I hold the device in my hands my eyes catch the doorway, and the silhouette is gone.

Excerpt

Abby nodded, and Lance moved in to kiss her again. His tongue swept past her lips, sliding against hers, teasing and tasting. His hands, like earlier, roamed down her back and gripped her ass once again. He pulled her tightly against him, grinding their hips together.

Her hands were trapped between them. She ran them over his chest, feeling the planes of his muscles, gripping the fabric of his t-shirt to pull herself closer.

One of Lance’s hands traveled up to her back, sliding under the hem of her tank top, teasing the skin just under the waistband of her shorts. His fingers slid lower, sliding along the top of her ass, while his other hand kneaded her flesh through her clothes.

With a small sound of frustration in the back of his throat, Lance broke off the kiss. He led her the few steps to his bed, sitting down on the edge and positioning her between his legs.

Abby wasn’t sure what he was doing. She stopped caring when he raised her shirt and began kissing her stomach, his tongue teasing along the edge of her belly button. Her hands went to his head, threading her fingers through his hair, enjoying the feeling of his mouth against her skin. She felt his hands slide up the backs of her thighs. He gripped her ass briefly before sliding around to the front. He made short work of unbuttoning and unzipping her shorts, pulling back so he could look at her face and watch her reaction.

He didn’t immediately push her shorts off her hips like Abby had expected. He left them hanging there, running his hands back around, caressing her waist and hips before finally sliding his hands under the fabric.

He groaned when he encountered bare skin. “Abby, are you wearing underwear?”

She licked her lips and nodded. “A thong.” Her husky whisper matched his.

“Can I see?”
