“Is it bad that I’m getting extremely turned on watching you fondle my car?” Hunter's hand lowered to adjust the front of his pants and I giggled.
I carefully slid up on the hood of the car and propped myself up on my elbow, placing my other hand on my hip while I attempted to pose like a pin-up girl. “How about now?”
He groaned, and I smiled appreciatively. “Woman, you are seriously testing my self control because right about now I want to spread your legs, slide in between them and take you on the hood of my car.”
Ohmigod I think I just came. If Hunter wanted to take this relationship slow, that was not the way to go about doing so, but I was ready and willing to have him fuck my brains out right here, right now!
He stalked towards me and my heart began pitter-patter. My eyes fluttered closed as his hands came down to rest on my knees, and I tried to spread them for him, but he kept them locked together with a vice grip. Slipping his hands behind my knees, he tugged my body down the length of the car until my feet hit the ground. I slowly peeled my eyes back open, and he was right in my face with his delicious breath cascading over my lips. “Not right now, baby,” he whispered, brushing his lips along my jaw and down my neck. “But one day I will have you just like this. With your gorgeous body spread across my car, in nothing but those sexy as fuck stiletto heels you were wearing the night we met, while I worship every inch of you.”
I couldn't have been happier when Emily asked me to beta read Windows because this was such a wonderful book!
From the very beginning, I wasn't sure whether or not I was going to love or hate Lucas. He and Lindy appeared to be such good friends behind closed doors, but when Lindy found herself getting picked on in high school because of her weight, Lucas did nothing to stand by and add fuel to the fire. One night changed everything when Lucas hurt Lindy in the worst way possible, pushing away the girl he has secretly loved for years.
After being gone for 4 years, Lindy returns home glasses free and 60 pounds lighter! A rush of feelings flood back to both Lucas and Lindy when they see each other again, but there are still some unresolved issues between them. To make matters worse, someone from Lindy's past is continuing to torment her and put her life, as well as others, in danger.
Will Lucas and Lindy be able to learn to trust one another again, or will ghosts from their past continue to keep them apart?
I loved this book from beginning to end, and thought the epilogue was absolutely perfect! I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading Tara and Daniels story!
Dani refuses to lose another parent due to her absence from their life. After pulling herself back together following the death of her father, she moves back to her childhood town to live with her mom. She’s slowly pulled back into the lifestyle she worked so hard to get away from ten years ago. She accepts that this is the life she has always been destined to live. Getting a job at the store down the road and hooking back up with her first love Gage, seems to be the logical way to go…that is until she meets Holden Reynolds.
Now that Holden is finally back home from the Navy he plans on following in his father’s footsteps. Still trying to move on from the one woman who had his heart, he busies himself in work and returning to the country boy lifestyle he’s always loved. The best way to get over someone is to get under someone, right? That’s his mindset as he travels town to town with his job perfectly content with being a rambling man…that is until he meets Danielle Brooks.
When Dani isn't leaving and Holden isn't staying will they be able to keep themselves from getting too attached? Or will they be just what each other needs to cut all the strings that have them bound?
“You can’t save me from me, Holden.” -Dani
Being born an "Army Brat", Erika Ashby has been residing in Oklahoma the last 10 years finally putting an end to the nomad tendencies she had grown accustomed to. She's a happily married woman who has 5 kids between her and her husband. She has an insane passion for music and embraces her Inner Groupie any chance she has. It wasn't until the age of 29 that she realized she also had a hidden passion for reading; before then she claimed to have hated it. Six months after unlocking that deep desire she never knew she held, she turned the key to another chapter of her life which has become the desire to write. And the rest is still history in the making.
This was a beautifully written story of two people running from their pasts and brought together when they were least expecting to find love. But no love story is without obstacles, and while they're living their lives trying to please everyone else, they overlook that maybe they are the ones needing to be saved themselves. The love Dani and Holden share is undeniable, but is that enough to keep them together or will they continue to let others dictate the paths their lives will take?
Definitely a must read! You won't be disappointed!
Here's a little bit of a shorter teaser for you guys this week....enjoy!:)

Hunter positioned himself so that he could wrap his arms around me, holding the gun up with his hands encompassing mine. The warmth of Hunter’s hands was a sharp contrast to the cold steel between my fingers. I took a short step back until I was pressed flush into his firm, toned chest, and gave a subtle shake of my hips, grinding my ass against the front of his jeans.
He leaned in to whisper, and his lips brushed against my ear. “I know what you’re doing, and it’s not going to work.” I looked back at him incredulously. “Keep your eyes on the target.”
knew I was awake, but my eyelids felt heavy, and I could barely open them. I
kept hearing people shout in the background and what sounded like hard blows of
flesh hitting flesh, but I couldn’t make anything out; the words were all swirling
together. It took me a moment to register a familiar smell encompassing me, and
I leaned in closer, soaking it in. It was a sharp, sweet woodsy scent much like
that of cedar. My mother had a hope chest made a cedar that had once belonged
to my grandmother. I used to love going through the contents with her while
breathing in the soothing aroma.
you okay? Can you tell me if it hurts anywhere?”
voice sounded like heaven, but my body still refused to cooperate and answer
him. Why was he asking if I was hurt? I felt fine, other than the fact that I
seemed to have lost motor function and the ability to speak.
started to get some feeling back in my arms and legs, and I felt my body
cradled against another that was almost twice my size.
he...did he touch you anywhere?”
Touch me? Who… Oh he must have meant Tucker. What ever happened to Tucker? He was
carrying me up the stairs, but I can’t remember much after that. Asshole must
have left me up here alone.
Maddie, I need you to focus if you can. This is important. I need you to tell
me if he touched you anywhere…inappropriately.” I could hear the concern in his
voice and to be honest it was starting to scare me.
the numbness subsided and I regained more feeling throughout my body, I could
feel pain shooting up my wrists as though they had been sprained. Jesus, what the hell happened to me?
heart was beating rapidly and I could feel myself beginning to hyperventilate,
but then I felt lips, his lips,
pressed against my throat, just over my racing pulse. His warm breath cascaded
over my throat, causing my heart to race faster, but soon my breathing matched
his and I was able to calm down.
He asked softly.
I finally peeled my eyes open to find a symbol I had only ever seen in doctors’
offices tattooed on his forearm. It looked like a staff with wings, entwined by
two snakes. Such an odd looking thing, and yet I felt better knowing that the
one whose arms I was currently wrapped up in bore that symbol…like he was my protector.
you think you’re okay to stand?”
squeezed my eyes shut, trying to ignore the pain in my wrists and nodded my
head. He gently tucked his arm beneath mine and wrapped it across my back,
allowing me to place all of my weight on him. My body still swayed unsteadily,
and seeing this stranger towering above me brought back the image of Tucker’s
body hovering over me and painfully pressing my wrists into the mattress. Oh God, what did he do to me?
heart rate picked up again, and he cupped my face, focusing my attention on his
stormy gray eyes and forcing away the fuzzy images that had yet to make any
you’re okay. He can’t hurt you. You’re safe now.”
You’re safe now. Safe. Those words were repeated over and over in my
mind, and when they finally sunk in, I opened my eyes one last time to look at
him smiling down at me.His lips looked
so soft, and I reached up to trace my finger along his bottom lip, but my hand
never made it there before I slipped back into the darkness.
