As she lets go of her heartbreaking past, she opens herself up to a world of passion and love she never expected as Jax treats her the way she's never been-- like a goddess. But after an unexpected and dangerous turn of events, along with the blossoming of an unlikely friendship, Lucy will be forced to re-evaluate her love life... forever.
Excerpt~I can't find the batteries anywhere, Sam must have moved them. “Yo, woman! Where are the AA batteries I just bought?” “Check my vibrator!” Really, Sam? Thankfully we're the only ones here. “Nice, Sam, are they seriously in there?” “Yea, I was out! What's more important, watching sitcoms or getting off? Come on, you should understand this better than me since you've missed out on 'man made' orgasms for the past four years!” Oh my God, can she be any louder? Although, she did have a point. “Hey, you want to open the door and yell that down our street Sam, or…” Shit! Really?! “Oh, Hi Jax,” I say as I see him standing by the door listening to us. “How is it that you've gone four years without an orgasm?” Jax asks me with a smirk. “Oh Jax, that is not a very gentleman thing to ask. But isn’t it usually the gentleman’s fault?” I say in a fake southern accent and chuckle. He laughs before telling me, “Lucy we will talk about this!” We are so not talking about this. Most of the time we end up staying in and drinking a bottle of wine while we watch movies or TV shows. Those are the best nights. Tonight is different. We are going to the ‘Green Door,’ an extremely private restaurant that is exclusive for VIPs. We don’t go to places like this often, but we are celebrating our new place and Sam’s graduation tonight so it's in order. Sam graduated in four years with top honors and is going to work for her dad who owns the largest investment firm on Wall Street, Renault Financial. “This isn’t fair Lucy. In four years I can’t come up with a better word than gorgeous but I need one for you. You’re striking. You take my breath away.” Jax says as he wraps his arms around me. Jax screams pure sex even when he walks around in his casual clothes. He looks even better than when we met four years ago. I love how he’s so complimentary to me. He always calls me gorgeous and I always blush. A girl needs to hear that every once in awhile and I certainly don’t mind hearing it from a man of his stature. His hug lingers and I feel this jolt of electricity as he holds me in his arms. As his body's pressed against mine I can feel how tight his chest is. I'm suddenly very aware of his entire body against mine. I react with a sense of excitement in my core that I haven’t enjoyed in so long, and it feels amazing. Welcome back, sex drive. I’ve missed you.
About the Author~
I have always been an avid reader. I used to hide under the blankets with a flashlight just to stay up late reading. That same passion for
books never left, I still hide just to get a few quiet minutes in to read a book. Once I start reading I get stuck in the books world and don’t want to come out. If you see me looking at my phone I’m probably reading a book, not texting or on social media sites like people probably assume. When I start a book I like to finish it that same day, so good luck talking to me.
I have had these characters from the never forgotten series in my head for a long time. They demanded I let them out recently and writing their story came naturally. It was re-writes and edits that took more time than getting the story on paper.
I really wish I took more editing classes in college, the Political Science classes aren’t paying off as well as English classes could have. I have a Bachelors degree in Political Science and a Masters in Business Administration.
I have just started writing but I have three books planned for this series and the next series is in my head ready to come out. I plan to keep writing until my husband or kids hide the computer (or tablets).
I would love it if you left an honest review. I welcome all feedback.
