When Emily Wayborn goes home to visit her mom while on hiatus from her hit TV show, she receives a voicemail from her former best friend, Amber. Though the two were once notorious party girls, they haven't spoken in years. Although the message might sound benign to anyone else, Amber uses a safe word that Emily recognizes, a word they always used to get out of sticky situations during their wild days. And what's more chilling than the voicemail: it turns out that Amber has gone missing.

Determined to track down her friend, Emily follows a chain of clues that lead her to the enigmatic billionaire Reeve Sallis, a hotelier known for his shady dealings and play boy reputation. Now, in order to find Amber, Emily must seduce Reeve to learn his secrets and discover the whereabouts of her friend. But as she finds herself more entangled with him, she finds she's drawn to Reeve for more than just his connection to Amber, despite her growing fear that he may be the enemy. When she's forced to choose where her loyalty lies, how will she decide between saving Amber and saving her heart?

Blurb

Dirty Pleasures

I did it. I married a billionaire.

My reasons are my own, but the last thing I expected was to feel owned.

I may have taken vows, but I'm still determined to be me.

Now his rules are taking over my world, but I'm not the kind of girl to just obey.

There's only one problem: I might actually be falling for him…

I have no idea how this marriage is going to go, but holding onto a piece of myself while succumbing to his dirty pleasures is shaping up to be the ride of a lifetime.

My Review: 
This book picked up where Dirty Billionaire left off. For the record, Holly's friend Tana rocks! I wished we had more of her in this book. However, I LOVED seeing Creighton and Holly getting to know each other and spending time together. I enjoyed how the chapters flip from his and hers POV.

And damn. Still that dirty talking alpha male. Seriously?! What could be hotter? Creighton had me swooning at times. Holly tries her hardest to not fall for him but she can't help herself. And I can't blame the girl. Creighton is pretty damn spectacular. He's fallen for her and can't help himself when it comes to Holly. We, the reader, know he's head over heels for Holly but with Holly's past and her self doubt, she doesn't see it. I kind of wanted to shake her a few times but this book is very fast paced and sucks you in. I couldn't put this book down and I just wanted MORE! 

I adore Meghan March's writing style and these characters! I didn't want this book to end. But I enjoyed everything about it from beginning to end. And I'm glad we have 1 more book to come because THIS ENDING.... Meghan, you slay me!  Go ahead, 1-click this dirty talking man. You know you want to! 


And look how hot that cover is!! ...Those arms! *swoon*

Dirty Billionaire: Release Date 12/08/2015

I've got a big dick and an even bigger bank account. That's pretty much where my bio ends.

Honestly, I don't need to say anything else. I've just sold 99% of women on going home with me.

Do I sound like an asshole to you?

That's because I am.

And guess what? It works for me just fine.

Or at least it did.

Until I met her.

Books talk about sparks flying. Fuck that shit. With her, it was like emergency flares mixed with jet fuel. Or maybe just straight up napalm.

Only one problem.

She wouldn't tell me her name or her number when she disappeared from the hotel room after the hottest fucking night of my life.

Now I've had a taste of unicorn pussy–the sweetest, rarest of all pussy–and I need it again.

So what's an asshole to do?

I took this problem to the street. A missed connection gone viral.

And when I find her? I'm keeping her.

Lisa De Jong - Break Even release blitz

Meet River & Marley in this emotionally twisted - unconventional stand alone by Lisa DeJong



Break Even is NOW AVAILABLE! 







Blurb
My story isn’t a love story … not the typical kind anyway.
As a lawyer, I’m used to discovery, but I never saw this one coming. 

Every day, River gives me ten reasons to stay away, and then eleven reasons why I can't. Our relationship was to remain strictly business, or at least I tried. 

Four years of marriage, and everything with Cole has changed. I never knew two people who lived together could be so distant. But I’m not ready to give up on him.

One man wants to break me.
The other is just trying to get even. 

Both are lying to me.

***This is a standalone contemporary romance (though a little unconventional and twisted!)


Excerpt
“Do you shower yourself in arrogance every morning, Mr. Holtz? You may want to use a little less next time.” My toes curl in the water, but I hold my voice steady.

He grips my hips, sliding my body close to his. If his cock is any indication, he’s just as turned on by this back and forth as I am. “Just admit you like it. You like having someone take care of your every need. You like having all my attention, and you definitely like my cock.”

“River,” I breathe as he kisses a line from my jawline to my shoulder.

“Admit it. You like me,” he says, his lips moving against my skin.

My fingers curl against his back. “Make me,” I taunt, enjoying the way he teases.

He groans, his lips pulling away from me. He stares, his eyes only inches from mine. He’s baiting the truth, but something tells me he already knows. And, I can’t stand that he’s not touching me, not when his words still play over and over in my head. I want to know what he’s capable of; it’s hard to believe I haven’t already seen and felt the best of him.

He cocks his head to the side, and I can’t take it. “I kind of like you. Now, kiss me.” As I hear my own words, I realize they’re true. I kind of like River Holtz, and I’m not quite sure how I feel about that.

“Kind of?” he asks, lifting his brow.

Damn him. If someone would have told me eleven days ago when River walked in my office that I’d be telling this man I like him let alone naked in his tub, I would have called them crazy.

“I like you,” I blurt before pressing my lips to his. I’m completely consumed. Addicted.

Adriana Locke - The Connection

I enjoyed getting to see Cane and Jada again. I read it immediately after The Exception, actually so it was nice to keep their story going. I just wished it could have been a little longer!!  I'm greedy, I know.

This story is sweet (REALLY sweet!) , fast paced and an all around great read! As in typical Cane fashion, he bulldozes Jada and everyone around her. But in the best possible way. The story completely suits them and is a perfect continuation to The Exception

I loved what Cane was able to accomplish for Jada. It was seriously the sweetest thing EVER! I know he had help from Max (and Kari), but Cane can be a complete romantic when it comes to Jada.  I dom't want to say too much and give this story away, but if you enjoyed The Exception, you'll like this book, too!  I actually liked this story better than the first but I enjoyed both immensely.  I've been a follower of Adriana Locke for awhile but I'm so glad my schedule opened up a bit for me to get her books read. They've been on my TBR shelf for a good long while!   I can't wait to dive into her other books and the books that will be coming in the future.  




He was the bad boy she didn't need. 
She was the exception to his rules. 

When Jada Stanley and Cane Alexander met, it was lust at first sight. As much as they fought it, it became so much more. 

Now that they've stopped fighting it and made their own rules, a little respite is needed. Las Vegas is the destination of choice. 

Despite what they say, not everything that happens in Vegas stays there. 

The Exception, Book #1 in The Exception Series, must be read before The Connection. This book is a novella.


Adriana Locke - The Exception

I enjoyed getting to meet Cane and Jada. Their story was easy to get lost in. 

Jada has had some bad things happen to her (loss of her mom, nasty ex-husband) and she's trying to rebuild her life. Without men. She's back home and staying with her sister while she gets back on her feet. And Cane Alexander comes barreling through her life like a wrecking ball. He's definitely not someone she should get involved with and she wants to stay away. But Cane won't allow it. 

Cane has had enough loss in his life, but he has prevailed and goes through life getting things accomplished, expanding the family business and not taking no as an answer. He's always had it easy when it comes to to women and has had his fair share of lovers. In his words, "You shouldn't try to play games with me because I'm not a player. I'm the coach." 

That statement was exactly how the cocky, self assured Cane came across. But hearing "no" from Jada spurred him on. Soon, he couldn't quit thinking about her. She was unlike anyone else and had completely captured his attention whether or not she meant to. 

Be sure not to miss Cane and Jada's story! Add this one to your TBR list for sure or heck, just go ahead and read it! And while you do that, I'm moving on to part 2 of their story: The Connection




There are exceptions to every rule ... 

Jada Stanley is starting over, freeing herself from her past. Following the rules she’s given herself is easy enough, until she meets HIM. He’s gorgeous, cocky, and everything she needs to avoid, but that’s easier said than done. 

Cane Alexander has his own set of rules, a plan to keep his life simple and free of complications. But when he sets his sights on Jada, she proves to be a temptation he just can’t resist. 

Walls crumble, resolve fades, and precious rules are bent. 

They can’t help but take a chance on each other, but chances come with risk. As the past rears its ugly head in ways they never see coming, will they revert back to protecting themselves? Or will they realize that the other is the exception to every rule they’ve ever made?


Meghan March - Beneath This Mask

I started this book after having discovered Meghan March when I received an ARC of her latest series, Dirty Billionaire. I downloaded the Audible version and have been listening to it as I could. It's not as steamy as Creighton and Holly's story but I ADORED Simon and Charlie! 

Circumstances have led Charlie to New Orleans and a completely different life than she had growing up. She was discovering her true self even though she wasn't telling the few close friends around her what was going on in her life. Then, one night she meets Simon. He can't get her out of his head. He's persistent and I loved how he treats her. 

Their story is sweet, funny and completely endearing. I loved every word and I'm definitely a huge Meghan March fan now!!  Don't let this book pass you by. 




He loves me, and he doesn’t even know my real name. 

The limelight that follows him could expose everything I’m hiding. But even knowing the risks, I can’t force myself to stay away. 

I’m going to break his heart, but mine will shatter right along with it. 

Will we lose it all when I reveal what’s beneath this mask? 

Beneath This Mask is a stand alone contemporary romance and the first book in the Beneath series. If you'd like to extend your stay in NOLA and the sexy world of the Beneath series, check out Beneath This Ink, Beneath These Chains, and Beneath These Scars.


Kate McKinley - So I Married a Highlander

My first thought as I got into this book was a little of The Hangover. Lol. Oh the things that can happen while intoxicated in 1815!  This book is funny, sexy, sweet and easy to get lost in. It was a fast paced story and enjoyable. Lady Evelyn goes to Gretna Green to marry the man her brother doesn't approve. 

Things don't go entirely as planned and Evelyn finds herself married to a Scotsman! He was the only man to ever make her insides quiver in longing/lust. She tried her hardest to not fall for him but their chemistry is smoking hot and she can't utter the word no to him. 

Evelyn has a few days to get to know her husband and even though she doesn't know everything about him, one thing she does know, is that he knows how to rock her world. His kisses alone ignite her and she can't think when he does it. Bit by bit, she starts learning who Alec is and then she has a decision to make.  Go back home and live life as she did before or stay with Alec.  I'm not going to give anything away, but read to find out how Alec and Evelyn's story plays out.  


A Lady’s Rules of Etiquette When Eloping: 

1. A lady should never leave a note behind explaining her intentions. 

2. If by chance a note has been left behind, a lady must prepare to be hunted down and the ceremony thwarted. 

3. In such a case, seeking consolation with a night of excessive drinking will be tempting, but ill advised. 

4. And lastly, a lady must never, under any 
circumstances, wake up manacled to a deliciously handsome Highlander. 

Lady Evelyn Alexander has managed to break all four rules in the space of an evening—and the tall, virile Highlander she accidentally married is only the beginning. Her fiancĂ© has also mysteriously gone missing and the threat of scandal is hot on their heels… 

Alec McAllister has no use for a wife, but when he wakes up entwined with the lovely and spirited Evelyn, he’s willing to reconsider. He’ll help her find her fiancĂ©, but when the passions ignite between them, it’s only a matter of time before the Highlander claims what’s his…



S.C. Stephens - Thoughtful

I enjoyed going back to the world of Kellan Kyle, Kiera and the D-bags! It's been awhile since I read Thoughtless so I had forgotten small details which were nice to hear from Kellan's perspective. 

I read this book through audiobook and tried to make the story last. Even though I knew the outcome, I didn't want this story to end and I was still captivated by it because I hadn't heard it through Kellan's eyes before now.  This book made me want to go back and re-read the entire Thoughtless trilogy. 

I adore S.C. Stephen's writing style and her characters. If you liked the Thoughtless trilogy, be sure to read this book! If you haven't read it, be sure to read Thoughtless first before diving into Thoughtful. 




In Thoughtless, Kiera told her story. Now it's time to hear from the sexy rock star who captivated us all . . .

THOUGHTFUL

The only place Kellan Kyle has ever felt at home is onstage. Gripping his guitar in a darkened bar, he can forget his painful past. These days his life revolves around three things: music, his bandmates, and hot hookups. Until one woman changes everything . . . 

Kiera is the kind of girl Kellan has no business wanting-smart, sweet, and dating his best friend. Certain he could never be worthy of her love, he hides his growing attraction . . . until Kiera's own tormented heart hints that his feelings might not be one-sided. Now, no matter the consequences, Kellan is sure of one thing-he won't let Kiera go without a fight.

Star by Elliott Kane with Davida Lynn

Jill: I know what he does for a living. I'm the only one in our family who knows what he does for a living, but I can't tell anyone. How do you tell someone that your step-brother is a porn star?

Cash: I knew exactly what I was doing to Jill all those years: I was teasing her without mercy. There was nothing more powerful than turning on your step-sister and then shutting her down when she wanted me most. Now I don't think I can say no...

Five years is a long time to be gone, but the memories and the desire are as fresh and real as ever.

D (30).png


“I know you don’t just live a playboy life on my father’s money. Let’s leave it at that.” I stared him down, forcing myself to keep eye contact. Cash’s chest moved up and down, his muscles dancing before my eyes, like they were trying to hypnotize me.
His smile grew wider. “Let’s not leave it at that. Jill, I sincerely think you should go on.” Cash pushed himself up until he was sitting upright at the head of my bed. His hands moved down to his lap, as if he was trying to draw my eye between his legs. It worked.
“Just leave.” I could feel my plan backfiring. I wanted to get dressed and maybe get out of the house for a little bit.
“No. This is way too much fun.”
I clenched and unclenched my jaw. Cash’s eyes traveled to my laptop, then back to me. “I just needed to forward someone an email. Figured I could pop on your computer real quick. You really should password protect it, you know. Lots of people out there who would just love to get into your private files.”
My heartbeat was so loud in my ears. He knew. My head was shaking just slightly, as if saying no would make it all go away. He knew.
I didn’t have any power. I don’t know why I thought that. He had it the entire time. Cash slid his legs off the bed. The dark denim against his olive-tanned skin was too much. My eyes went wide as he stood up, his body looking so massively taller than mine.
“Say it.” His words were nothing more than a whisper.
My head moved side to side. “Say what?”
“We both know. Say it.”
His voice. There was something about it that was just so demanding. I’d heard it before. I’d heard it when we were growing up, and I’d heard it on his videos. He was always in control in his scenes.
My voice was quiet, meek, and under his control. “I…I know what you do.”
Cash’s smile got wider, like he’d broken into a bank vault.
“You're damn right you know what I do.” That voice wasn't Cash's. At least not the Cash I knew. It was Cash Money. It was that arrogant, hyper-sexual porn star that I had gotten off to more times than I could count. It wasn't my step-brother in front of me, anymore. It was a shirtless man with the best cock in the business.
I didn't think my heart could beat any faster, but it kept surprising me. When I was afraid, I felt that heartbeat in my neck, but I wasn't afraid, anymore. I felt that heartbeat between my legs. Blood was rushing to my hot and bothered pussy, and I knew he was getting me wetter.
In the shower, the fantasy of Cash got me wet, but I was standing right in front of him, only wearing a robe, and I admitted that I knew about his job. I was dying for release, and I could feel the wetness on my thighs.
His eyes narrowed in, “Tell me. Say it out loud.”
This is what it's like. This is what it's like to be taken. I’d been to third base, but it was nothing like this. Just hearing Cash’s words made me feel like I wasn't a virgin anymore. He had taken me, and made me his. He didn't know it, but I always been his. I had always been his for the taking, and now it was time.
He repeated, “Say it out loud.”
“You’re...” I stammered the words, “You're a porn star. You're a porn star.”

My Review:

After reading the book synopsis I thought it sounded good and I like getting introduced to new-to-me authors. However, this book fell short for me. I try to overlook grammatical errors but they were scattered throughout this book and made it difficult to ignore. I hope they fixed them prior to publication.  

I found the characters hard to connect with. I know Jill had been teased by Cash growing up, and then she discovered what he did for a living and bookmarked his scenes on her computer because he had always been "the guy" for her. He had always been attracted to Jill but never let himself cross that line. Until circumstances brought her back. I just felt like something was missing. 

The story line skipped around and didn't stay focused. And I felt like other things were left unanswered after having spent time throughout the book dealing with it. This book just wasn't one for me.

After six years working in a library, Davida finally took the plunge and made writing her full-time career. She has four novels and ten novellas to her name. When she's not writing, her time is spent on the fixer upper log cabin she and her man recently bought. She lives with him and their very spoiled cat in southern Indiana.

I CAN’T CLOSE MY EYES… I refuse to. Every time I do, all I see is blood, death, and pain. I can feel it - almost taste it, bringing me back to that night. It doesn't matter that I'm still breathing; I no longer need it, I no longer want it. I despise it along with everything else around me. The only thing I long for is to fucking fade away. I've given up. Until her at least… AVALON. She comes into my world, knocking me on my ass. It turns me on to have her around me. Makes me want to wrap my hand around her tight little throat and fuck her until she feels my pain, feels the monster in me, but also makes me want to protect her from the very thing that she should be afraid of... me. Once she sees the damage that I’m capable of; she’ll look at me like everyone else around me does: with fear. Avalon Knight HIS EYES... THE DARKNESS IN them draws me to him, making me want to taste him, feel him… and save him. I shouldn't have gotten on the back of his motorcycle that day. I know that now. Colton warned me. I was told it was dangerous. I was told that nothing would be the same. He was right. ROYAL is dangerous, dark, and seductive; the very thing that keeps me hanging on, willing to give my last breath just to touch him… breathe him in. He’s savage, inked, and highly captivating. So different from his brother… He's hazardous to my health, mind, and body, yet the only thing that I crave. I want to free him. I want to change his mind, but I'm afraid that he’s already too faded…

Royal Savage Teaser 05


RS Teaser tour

My Review:
This book is a little darker than previous Victoria Ashley books. More because of the subject matter and the violence our Hero witnessed in his life which has made him the person we see. He's broken and hurting and Avalon sees the person beneath the tattoos and bad boy image. 

Avalon hasn't had an easy life and she's been known to run with the wrong crowd in the past. Her current boyfriend is a complete douche and her friends don't like him. He's not very nice to her, calls her a different name and only makes time for her when it works for him. She's ready to cut ties with him. 

Then, one night at a party she accidentally meets Royal. She can't get him off her mind. And he can't stop thinking about her. She can't explain it but there is a pull to him. She sees the loving, kind man that he is and he knows he isn't right for her but he can't let her go either. 

Their story was completely captivating and also filled with drama from their pasts. Royal is fiercely loyal to his close friends who are also his family. He's had shitty things happen to him and he's definitely the epitome of bad boy. But I love the side of him Avalon is able to pull out. He's so much more than his bad boy persona and then we learn very surprising news and it's such a great way to end this story. 

Of course this book is hot, but it's also sad and sweet and I didn't want to put it down. Be sure to add Royal to your TBR list!


tag19 
 As soon as we step into the hall, all I hear are the sounds of a tattoo gun buzzing. It echoes throughout the small hallway, making me nervous now. I stop and look through the open door at Royal and my heart literally skips a beat at the sight of him. He’s leaned over, concentrating on some middle-aged man’s back piece that he’s working on. Jax is chilling next to him, watching, them both looking just as sexy as the other night. Madison stops next to me, raising a brow as she sets sights on Royal as well. “Well spank my ass and call me Sally,” Madison says with a moan. “Sexy, sinful, tattoo heaven… I’m never leaving. Just saying.” Royal glances up with a snarl, but then turns his gun off and sets it down when his eyes land on me, watching me watch him. “We’re done for tonight,” he says to his client. “Jax will call you a cab.” Looking as if he’s not bothered one bit by Royal dismissing him, he stands up, grabs for a stained up white shirt, and walks past us, almost falling into the wall. Jax stands up and reaches for a bottle of Vodka, pouring five shots. “Did Blaine here give you guys a tour of the building on the way in? Zip up your shit, dude.” “Fuck off,” Blaine says playfully, snatching up one of the shots while zipping his fly. I turn my eyes back in Royal’s direction, but keep my head still so he doesn’t notice me watching him. He looks conflicted as he starts cleaning his table and chair off. “Didn’t think you’d be back,” he says stiffly. “You change your mind on that tattoo?” I grab a shot glass when Jax hands one to Madison first and then myself. “Your friend asked us to come and my friend here, forced me to agree.” I throw my shot back, emptying the glass, hoping for some kind of liquid courage. “So here I am.” With stiff muscles, Royal stands up straight and grabs the last shot glass, slamming it back, before shoving the empty glass at Jax. “Come here,” he demands. I stand here for a second, not moving, until Madison shoves me forward and calls me a pussy. I look back at her and glower, before stopping in front of Royal. Grabbing my hand he pulls me to him, and grabs my hips, digging his hands in. “I have the perfect spot for your first tattoo.” Reaching for the bottom of my dress, he lifts the front so only he can see, and runs his thumb over my hipbone. “Perfect.” Yanking my dress down, I back away and watch him as he starts preparing his tattoo equipment. “I never said I was going to let you tattoo me.” His jaw clenches as he looks back at me. “You scared that Colton is going to be pissed or some shit?” I shake my head. “At this point, I could care less about what he thinks. As far as I’m concerned, we’re on a break.” “Okay…” He sits down and runs a hand through his messy hair, his eyes studying mine. “You don’t want one then?” “I do,” I say quickly, realizing that I do, but I’m just being a pussy, exactly what Madison called me. “Come on, Ava,” Madison says from behind me. “We’re already here and from what I can see, Royal is very capable of giving great tattoos. I’ll let Blaine over there tat me up next.” Royal raises a brow in question, when I turn back to him. “What do you say, babe? Take that damn dress off for me?” I swallow and look around the room. Having three other sets of eyes on me is making me nervous, extremely nervous. “Out,” Royal suddenly barks out. “Keep the girl close by and make sure Porter stays away from her. He’s on some shit tonight.” “Madison can stay,” I say firmly, not wanting to send her away. “I don’t care if she watches.” Madison looks between Jax and Blaine and bites her bottom lip. It’s clear what she wants to do, and that’s most likely both of them. “I’ll be good with the boys. Plus, I want to check out the party animals in the next room.” I take a deep breath and watch Madison as she follows Jax and Blaine out the door, shutting it behind her with a wink. I suddenly feel nervous, realizing that I’m alone with Royal. He’s so damn intense that I have no idea what to expect from him. “Lay down.” Swallowing, I sit down on the black, leather chair that is already laid back into a bed. I jump from the coldness on my skin, but then close my eyes and get comfortable, waiting on Royal’s next move. With my eyes still closed, I can see the shadow from him standing above me, before I feel his rough hands brush my upper thighs as he grips my dress and lifts it, stopping just under my breasts. “Any certain design? I can do it all.” “A feather,” I say softly. “Blue with purple highlights; feminine and pretty. Can you do that?” He lifts an eyebrow while pulling on a pair of black gloves. “I can definitely do feminine and pretty. Like I said, I do it all.” I suck in a breath and grip the seat, when I feel his hands brush against my skin as he prepares to mark me for life. Grabbing my hand, he places it on his thick thigh. My heart speeds up from the feel of his muscular leg beneath my palm. “If it hurts, dig into my leg and take it out on me. It will help you feel better.” I hear the buzzing of the gun and instantly grip his thigh, feeling anxious. When I open an eye to peek up at him, he’s smirking. “Ready?” I nod my head. “Mmm hmm…” I feel my fingers dig deep into the denim of his thigh as the needle hits my sensitive flesh. My stomach instantly sinks and I flinch, more unprepared than I thought. I do my best to keep my eyes closed through most of it, but then open my eyes closer to the end, when my skin starts to feel numb. It’s a bit of a relief. Royal’s face is stern, set in a line of concentration. I notice that he even bites his bottom lip once in a while when he really gets into a good spot. I find myself watching him, my legs slightly opening, as I get lost in my own little world. He’s delicious to watch. There is absolutely no denying that. Royal’s hand gripping my thigh wakes me from the moment, snapping my eyes up to his. He pushes my legs together. “Keep those things closed, unless you want me between them,” he growls. I squeeze my legs together, slightly moaning as the thought of him between my legs causes my body to clench and jerk. “Is it almost done?” I ask, hoping to come back to reality… the one where he’ll never be between my legs. “Almost…” Getting lost in the way that his jaw muscles tighten as he adds the finishing touches, my legs relax and slightly open again. Tossing his tattoo gun aside, Royal stands up and growls, gripping my hips and pulling me down to the end of the chair, until his jean-covered erection is pressed against my pussy. A shock of pleasure runs through my core as he presses against it. His right hand digs into my hip as the left one tightens around my neck. His eyes meet mine for a brief moment, before his right hand slides down my thigh and he releases my neck, stepping back. “Keep flashing that smooth little pussy at me… Fuck, Avalon.” His jaw ticks as he looks between my thighs one last time. “Those little underwear don’t cover much.” “Sorry,” I say in aggravation. “I got comfortable a couple times and wasn’t thinking. I didn’t expect you to get a fucking hard-on over it and freak out.” Letting out a long breath, Royal sits back down, grabs my hand, and places it back on his thigh. Except this time, I can almost feel the shape of his hard dick above my fingers. I suck in a breath at the near contact. “This last part might hurt; especially now that we’ve taken an unwanted break. Hold still.”
