EXCERPT

  His mouth slack with desire, red with kissing. Ry bent to my neck, his hand fucking me expertly, relentlessly. “Oh, oh, you’re so fucking hot I can’t even-” “What’s that?” Ry said, his voice a raspy purr. “I, oh-” “What’s that, Lily?” His steady, deep, hunting rhythm. He had me right on the edge. His touch strayed back along my cleft to rest alongside the tight bud of flesh at my back. I tried to squirm away but had nowhere to go. “Hey, you’ve got me between a rock and a hard place, here,” I said, laughing nervously. Ry slowed, still exploring. He circled pressingly, his free hand wrapped around the side of my hip, pinning me where he wanted. I loved how big his hands were, but the very bigness of Ry meant he could pin me like a butterfly. Worst of all, it felt wonderful. Even as shame began to lick at me hotly. I felt ragingly shy. “I can’t…” Ry wouldn’t let me go. My eyes sparked on his. “Please, I can’t-” Just when I thought I couldn’t bear his strokes any longer, Ry moved sideways, massaging the inner muscles of the back of my ass. The thumb of Ry’s hand at my waist still stroked me soothingly. I wrapped my arms around him, trying to let myself go, to float in him. But whenever I thought about what he was doing, what he was trying to do and where he was doing it, I’d get so embarrassed I’d squirm away from him again. The sunlight throbbed. “Oh, I don’t know, I don’t know, I just don’t want to-” “I love your crazy talk when you go out of your mind.” Ry kissed my cheek hard, and then found my mouth, working me open. Soon I was panting into him again, my hips lifting for his. Pleasure strobed as we drank, sucking, our tongues shamelessly wet. “You trust me, baby?” Ry said. “Ohh…” His touch tipped inside me, pulsing. I felt myself open; flowers gasped candent in the sun. “I could watch your face forever,” he said. “I’d die, you feel so good, you feel too good-” “Ssh, ssh, relax, just let it. Just let me know you.” The sound of Ry’s voice curled through me as his touch slid, a metronome of desire. Quickening in me. This overwhelming fullness. Ry covered me with kisses. “You’re so, so soft. I love touching you all over.” He grinned. “Staking my claim.” He moved back, lingeringly, to stand above me, his frame commanding even as he was dwarfed amongst the hugeness of rock and forest, the mountains in the distance. He began unbuckling his jeans for me, teasingly slow.

Erotic Romance   #InnocentEyesTour Add to your Goodreads TBR Synopsis: "If he's gross, I'm bailing."  That's what I said to my supposed best friend when she asked me to take her place. A blind date, she said. What harm could it do?  He was charming. Beautiful. God's finest creation. He wined me and dined me. Made me do things I'd never before dreamt of in the bedroom. It was perfect. Dangerous. Arousing.  But Jenny didn’t tell me the full story. She didn’t tell me about the debt she owed. And now Quinn Cane wants his money's worth, and he’s going to make me pay whatever way he can.  “A debt needs to be paid.” The woman who came to meet me didn’t owe me money. I could tell by her innocent eyes.  Still, the debt will be paid either way. She was something to play with and use as I saw fit, but something about Emily Brooks made me want to keep her. So she became my dirt…

Well Played by JS Scott and Ruth Cardello

Lauren:

Graham is my brother's best friend. He’s always been my protector and my confident because he accepts me the way I am—and not many do. I can’t imagine not having him in my life.
Our weekend together was supposed to be a celebration. I graduated from college, Graham got engaged and signed with a pro football team, and my brother landed his dream job. It should have been the best time of our lives.

Except that the weekend started with me walking in on Graham's fiancée going down on my brother.

I complicated the situation by having sex with Graham after that, but I wanted to comfort him and, damn, when I saw desire in his eyes—for me—I couldn’t say no. I’ve wanted him for so long.

Now he doesn’t want to see me. He says he has a darker side he needs to protect me from.

Where do we go from here? Do I try to pretend to be his friend again or push him to open up to me and possibly lose him forever?

Sleeping with one of my best friends was not exactly a brilliant idea. It made…
