“It hurts praying for something you don’t want.”
Well I think I might just die from a book hangover, or a cliffhanger hangover or whatever you want to call it. But I need Manwhore +1—like YESTERDAY! This book hooked me from the very beginning. I don’t always like books about billionaire playboys, but this one completely stole the show. There is so much good stuff going on in this story and Malcolm Saint is just everything, and I mean EVERYTHING you would want in a book boyfriend. I will be on serious pins and needles until book 2 comes out. Like, I’m already having anxiety over it. And anyone that knows me knows that I can handle cliffhangers pretty well. NOT THIS TIME. I almost cried when I realized that the end was actually THE END (for now).
Rachel Livingston is a 23 year old writer for a failing magazine called Edge. She is also a bit of an activist, which I love! She desperately needs to prove her worth to her boss, so she decides to take on this story working as an undercover investigator for the magazine. Her Job: To expose Malcolm Saint. This is where it gets interesting. You see, Malcolm doesn’t have too many secrets. His billionaire lifestyle has pretty much been the center of his life since he was a kid. His women, his cars, his work, his yacht, his shenanigans have all been made public. And Rachel has to find a way to dig deeper and expose a side of him that nobody has ever seen.
“Lie. Little white lies.”
Malcolm is well aware that Rachel is “press” when he decides to take an appointment with her. He just has no clue the depth of her actual target job. When these two first meet it isn’t instant chemistry at all. I mean, Malcolm is instantly hot and Rachel is obviously bothered but in no way is this insta-love. Rachel is obviously quite taken with Malcolm but every time she gets a new interview she manages to flub it up.
“A challenge is something you stop wanting once you acquire it. I can’t know if you’re a challenge yet until I make you mine.”
This goes on for a bit –Rachel messing up. But it soon becomes clear that Malcolm is just as interested in her as she is in him. The only difference is that Rachel is driving the smooth road of denial, and Malcolm Saint is just as cool as a cucumber—always seeming just-so in how he operates. Constantly secure in who he is and what he wants. And his vulnerable side was quite surprising to me. He comes off as this cold business man while at the same time swooning the hell out of everything around him, including me! Malcolm Saint is something special for sure, he is full of sex, wealth, power, dread, hot passion and teddy bear all rolled into one. The perfect book boyfriend.
“I’m not endearing to people, Miss Livingston. I’d say people respond to me on four levels and four levels only: they want to pray me, be me, do me, or kill me.”
This story is told in Rachel’s POV, but from her perspective and Malcolm’s words I am dying to know what is going on in his head and I hope in Manwhore +1, that we get some Malcolm Saint POV. I will be praying to the book gods and Katy of course. I’ve read all of Katy’s books and this one is WAY different than anything I’ve ever read of hers. It still has the great quality of writing you’d expect, but there is a new flare to it in this book. It’s super sexy with a great wittiness and playfulness that I didn’t expect, especially from a billionaire dude. There are some cool side characters that I really liked as well--Tahoe and Callan who are Saint’s friends seemed kind of douchey but I just loved the way they gave Saint a hard time, and also seemed to take a liking to Rachel. Then we have Gina and Wynn—Rachel’s friends and to be honest Gina pissed me off a lot for about half of the book, I understand being over protective about Rachel but sheesh let the girl get laid! Gina turned it around a bit towards the end, and I ended up really liking her, and Wynn was just one of those super sweet friends.
Overall I really loved this book!! Oh my god I almost forgot about the sexy times. Let’s just say that it was smoking-hot-on-fire-sizzling-chemistry. And it wasn’t overnight chemistry. That is probably one of my favorite things about this book. It was a gradual slow burn that keeps you on the edge just waiting to fall and right when you think it’s going to happen, BAM another chapter! There’s truly a great angst factor to this story. And hell yes I would recommend this book, it has everything you need in a hot romance novel and more!
“I’m not the guy anyone comes to for comfort, Rachel. But I like that you came to me.”
I’d like to start off by saying how much love I have for the THIS MAN series. And I was so excited to read this new series by Jodi. I went in with fresh eyes like I always try to do. And I made a strict rule for myself to try my best to not compare the two male characters. I love Jodi’s quirky writing style, and YES I find myself doing a lot of google searches in order to understand what the heck she’s talking about! I love that she doesn’t try and dilute her books with American-isms like so many other European Authors do. It definitely makes for a unique and completely entertaining reading experience. I had a lot of fun reading this book.
Olivia Taylor or “Livy” is a young twenty-something barista just trying to figure out her way in life. She’s had some major mommy issues in her past, and she just wants to get passed all of that. She doesn’t date and she hasn’t even touched a man for quite some time. (Hence the mommy issues) She sucks at her job, like really badly. She has a hard time making just about any coffee drink, but she owns it so I can’t hate on her. She’s sassy and cute and when Mr. Hot intimidator walks through the door she practically loses it. She can’t write, she can barely speak, and she most definitely just made the worst cup of coffee of her life. BUT. The connection has already been made. This Man “M” just gazed at her. So yeah, she’s done for.
“M” remains a mystery for a good portion of the book. But when he runs into Livy for a second time he can’t help but offer up a proposition. ONE NIGHT. 24 hours to be exact. He lets her know that he’s “emotionally unavailable” but at the same time makes it clear that he can’t stay away and just has to have her for these full 24 hours. No strings, no love blah blah blah. You get it.
Mr. Hot sexy and Mysterious obviously has a hidden past or a secret if you will. He won’t give up ANY personal information to Livy, yet he expects her to divulge her stuff. Which happens, but not with her consent. Livy has a pretty cool granny who likes to talk. And speaking of side characters—I actually really enjoyed her friends. They weren’t too overbearing, but obviously had concern for their friend and this dangerous rich man with whom she was so enamored with.
I really enjoyed the flow of this story. It was long enough that you were able to really get into the characters and storyline. But not overly long to the point of boredom. I did have some issues. I never fully connected with M just because he was such a mystery for most of the book. I also couldn’t help but notice some oddly close similarities between him and Jesse( This Man Series). They have completely different issues, but I felt that they were sort of the same in regards to their controlling mannerisms and distinct placement of words and phrases. Like I said before, I tried to go in with fresh eyes but that’s really hard after reading the first series.
With that being said, by the end of the book I actually fell for M a bit, and found myself more frustrated with Livy. She was such an open and honest person throughout the book, and the minute she found out M’s secret she turned major hypocrite on him. She also begged for something and then acted like a fool after she got it. I’m sorry, but if I’m craving a hot dog with the works—and I get it. YOU better believe that I’m going to feel grateful. I might feel a little guilty afterwards, but I most definitely will not be running to the nearest hot dog stand to throw a fit over the crap THAT I JUST ORDERED. I can’t stand rude customers. Read the book. You’ll understand.
Overall Jodi brings a very entertaining story. It’s sexy and kind of whacky but I have a soft spot for crazy overbearing men. If you’re into that kind of stuff I would totally recommend this book.
“He’s made me reckless and irrational. He may make me feel alive, but he makes me feel lifeless just as quickly.”
*I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.*
“It’s not courteous to break a deal.” “We didn’t shake on it.” “No, we fucked on it.”
Livy is your average girl next door, and her multiple pairs of converse will attest to this. She lives with her Nan (who was a great side character) and Livy is trying to get her life on track after her dark past. During one of her shifts at the coffee shop, the mysterious M leaves Livy a note, not a very complimentary one at that but it piques Livy’s interest.
‘M’ or Miller as we soon find out, wants Livy but you know how the story goes, he doesn’t want a relationship and can’t offer her a future etc. Instead, he wants Livy for twenty-four hours because apparently that’s enough to rid him of his craving for her. Livy is hesitant at first but M soon wins her over.
“Nothing about the next twenty-four hours is going to be difficult, Livy.” His hand slides across my cheek tenderly, pushing me to nuzzle into it. “I know being with you will be the easiest thing that I’ve ever done.”
As I was reading the story, I felt Livy and Miller shared many similarities with the MC’s from the This Man series, Jesse had his idiosyncrasies and although M’s wasn’t the same, I felt they were substituted for others. I wanted to see a big departure from the last series and I’m just not seeing that yet.
This is my third book by Jodi Ellen Malpas and I do struggle to get into the writing, mostly in relation to the characters. I love strong, independent women and Livy wasn’t displaying that for me. I liked the comic relief her Nan provided but at the same time I felt her presence made Livy feel younger than what she was. I also felt M and Livy’s ‘relationship’ took off at full speed but I wasn’t feeling it between them. With that being said, I did warm towards Miller and his aloofness intrigued me.
I did like the twist towards the end, unfortunately, I had accidently read a spoiler on someone’s GR update so I knew it was coming but even knowing M’s secret I thought it was well done as the clues were very subtle throughout. The revelation creates a storm between Livy and Miller and the fall out will continue in book two.
For fans of Jodi’s work, I have no doubt you will devour Livy and M within hours and crave the next instalment asap. I definitely seen potential, I’m just not completely won over yet.
Jodi Ellen Malpas was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her two boys. Working for her father’s construction business full time, she tried to ignore the lingering idea of writing until it became impossible. She wrote in secret for a long time before finally finding the courage to unleash her creative streak, and in October 2012 she released This Man. She took a chance on a story with some intense characters and sparked incredible reactions from women all over the world. Writing powerful love stories and creating addictive characters have become her passion - a passion she now shares with her devoted readers.

“In an ideal world you only love the perfect man. But it’s not an ideal world. I love an imperfect man.”
*I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.*
It’s no secret a man named Remy stole my heart just over a year ago so I was part intrigued and part sceptical if another man from Katy Evans could live up to the same standards. Greyson King was all Alpha male in his own right and he had his eye on Brooke’s best friend Melanie for quite some time.
I really liked Melanie; she was a romantic dreamer and a girl after my own heart. Her best friend was settling down and living her own fairy tale. Melanie wanted that for herself, she had a vision of perfection and wouldn’t give up until she got her dream man.
“I know this with a certainty: I will never stop living my life, loving my friends, and looking for love. I know with a certainty that when I find him, he will be all that I dreamed he would be, perfect in every way. The perfect man for me.”
Melanie was a confident yet stubborn girl. She ran into some trouble concerning The Underground where Remy fought and she had debt collectors breathing down her neck. Melanie was too proud to turn to her friends for help and when she ran into Greyson, he was the perfect distraction to enable her to ignore her troubles for a while.
I liked the storyline and the way, in which Greyson was connected, it was cleverly done and it brought a gritty element to the book. Greyson wasn’t Melanie’s average Prince Charming but there was no denying the connection and craving they shared.
“It’s been a week, but as far as I’m concerned,” he cups the back of my head and nibbles on my lower lip, “I’ve been waiting a lifetime to sink myself in you.”
Although I thought Melanie and Greyson didn’t have the same intensity as Remy and Brooke, I did enjoy their story and read it in one day. Katy’s writing as usual, flows so easily and I felt for both Melanie and Greyson. I loved Greyson’s back-story and the letter at the end had me shedding a tear or two.
I would have loved Remy and Brooke to play a bigger part in the story, what can I say, I’m always desperate for more of them. Pandora played a bigger role in order to lead into her own story, I’m still on the fence about Pandora and I’m not sure I know enough about her to want to read on.
Rogue was full of mystery, action, hot sex and loyalty. It was refreshing to read something different from Katy and I was able to fall for both characters, wanting them to find peace but above all happiness with each other.
For lovers of the Real series, Rogue will not disappoint and you need to check it out today.
“Suddenly every fiber in m y body, my sober body, tells me he is the one. The one who’s going to wreck me. Hurt me. Demolish me. The one who is going to remove every inch of the girl in me. He will be the memory I will never forget, and good or bad, he will be THE one I dream of.”
“You’re going to be the death of me, princess, and I don’t give a shit anymore. I just don’t want to be the death of you.”
“Was!” I drunkenly correct. “Was your girl.” He laughs more darkly. “You are so fucking mine you don’t even know how mine you are.”
“I love my memories now. What a treasure to know who you are, who you love, what you did yesterday, what you hope for yourself for tomorrow. What a treasure to remember the day I met the man I love.”
A new Katy Evans book, hell yes was my thought! Katy’s REAL was one of the very first books I read that entered me into this crazy social media outlet involving BOOKS. Because of her I met some of the very best friends of my life. Friends that I know I will have forever. So this Author holds a very big chunk of my heart for that. Her writing just grabs you, and her one-liners are off the charts good. Some of my favorite book quotes come from her writing and with ROGUE she didn’t disappoint! Katy can write one hell of a sexy hot alpha male for sure, and Greyson is definitely THAT.
Greyson is Rogue by definition; he has a major bad boy reputation and skills beyond skills to back that up. He’s elusive and sexy and extremely keen to his surroundings. He knows what he wants and he gets it. His job is his livelihood and his crutch at the same time. He has an ultimate mission, but in order to get there he has to do some shady stuff. His end game isn’t so certain, especially when it involves a hot blond that he can’t get out of his head, and not entirely by choice. It’s a very sticky situation. He risks himself in order to find someone, and in return he’s sent through a ringer of emotions that might just make him lose everything. This book was totally action packed, and emotionally heartfelt.
Melanie is in a very sticky situation herself, yet she is reluctant to share this info with anyone. She also has a reputation and it’s not a good one. So when she comes into contact with Greyson for the first time she’s caught in a moment of lust. And then…the walls go up.
For the record, I just have to say it. Katy gets DIRTY in this book! I mean I’ve read some sexy stuff from her before but this was just HOT! She can make the dirtiest-sexy time scene sound almost clean if that makes any sense. It wasn’t slutty—it was sultry, it wasn’t nasty—it was classy! I love how she can turn the dirty-sex filled scenes into something beautifully romantic. It’s the words and the wording that just got to me. That is what makes the difference, but it was still hot and kinda-sorta dirty. IN A GOOD WAY.
So Melanie and Greyson go on a bit of a cat and mouse journey for a while. One bites, the other runs, one chases, the other follows etc… And it’s sweet and almost forbidden at times. Not forbidden in the natural aspect of the word. Forbidden because of both of their own iron clad walls. It’s as if they are denying themselves of each other for no other purpose than it’s just “wrong” because of their individual circumstances. I’m not gonna lie, I love the angst factor in that. THAT is what kept my page turning.
Here’s the thing with Melanie. She wants love so desperately. She sees what her best friend Brooke has and she wants that. And yes, you do get a little Brooke and Remy in this book, more Brooke but that’s to be expected. We also have her friend Pandora *insert scowl face* Pandora BUGGED me beyond belief in this book. I wanted to like her so much, but at every turn she was just so bitchy to Melanie and unsupportive at times. Pandora refused to be happy for Mel, and I just got mad! I know her intentions were good but she just seemed bitter and sour. I’m assuming that Pandora will have her redemption someday, but not today!
Mel and Grey were great together. And the story just flowed so well. It wasn’t just about romance and redemption. It was about finally accepting yourself for who you are and letting go of past ghosts that might still haunt you forever. It’s about the realization that sometimes the closest people to you might just be the worst cancer for your heart, and ultimately accepting that. You can’t fix everyone, and I think these two characters realized that. I really liked it a lot, and of course I would recommend it to everyone!
“I have a thing about man nipples”
Seeeeeeeee!!! I love her quotes!! There are so many other great ones too!
My Life in 8 Words: “Hectic, wonderful, complete; everything I ever wanted.”
Katy Evans grew up with books and book-boyfriends until she found a real sexy boyfriend to love. They married and are now hard at work on their own happily ever after. Katy loves her family and friends, and she also loves reading, walking, baking, and being consumed by her characters until she reaches “The End.” Which is, hopefully, only the beginning…

When I first read Willow Aster, it was her book True Love Story. I immediately became a fan of her writing. Not only is it so creative, it’s more than that. It’s witty, and smart and so stylistic. So when I heard about Maybe Maby coming out I knew that I wouldn’t be disappointed. And I WASN’T! I loved this book so much. The characters are so extremely loveable, and the storyline through which they flow will have you wanting more at every turn. It has a little bit of everything angst, drama, romantic stuff, sexy stuff and some pretty funny laugh out loud moments. All around it was just great.
“Symmetry is a requirement. Anything else is… evil.”
Mabel (Maby) is a young woman with OCD. She’s had to deal with some pretty rough stuff in life, including loss and betrayal which basically makes her condition ten times worse. Any type of stress, including emotional distress can bring her to a breaking point where she falls into a deep depression. This tore my heart out reading about her struggle with the disease, especially knowing that this, in fact is something that real people go through every day. Because of this Maby has a huge wall up and is afraid to let anyone one in. She deserves love yet she doesn’t see it that way. She thinks it’s easier for everyone just to keep their distance because her biggest fear is letting someone in her heart, for her to just trample on and ruin with her weird quirky faults. That’s how she sees herself—as a risk or a problem.
“It all sounds so trivial for me to say it outright, but trust me, it isn’t. I’m actually a huge risk that I’m not sure anyone should take.”
Maby has a whole swirl of characters in her life. A cranky selfish boss, a nice-but iffy best friend, a horrible ex- boyfriend, a sweet charming coffee boy, an awesome hair stylist, and of course the ghosts from her past.
Maby doesn’t realize what is right in front of her the whole time. She has the drive and need to love someone, she just doesn’t have the capability of directing her emotions in the right place. She struggles with not one—but two romantic relationships. It’s a bit of a triangle at times, and to be honest I loved that. Nothing gets me sitting up straight in my chair like a good old fashioned love triangle. I was like oooooh---ohhhh. That’s where the angst comes in. Willow Aster has a sneaky way of making you fall in love with one character, and then making you change your mind completely to a different one! It’s kind of awesome.
“Being with you makes me forget who I really am.”
“Maybe I just remind you of who you want to be… who you are when you’re not trying to be something else.”
By the end I was just in love with what happened. I was swooning so much at one point that I actually sighed. I never sigh! This story is so much more than a woman trying to get passed her OCD. It’s about her trying to overcome and accept herself for who she is. She has this great guy in her corner who truly just wants to lift her up and love her forever (hence the swooning and sighing). And this truly amazing group of people who I like to call her adoptive family, because they just took her at face value and loved her so much that she couldn’t help but calm down and breathe a little. This is such a unique little gem of a story and I would recommend it to anyone who needs to feel a little extra love in their lives. We all need love right? So so good—it warmed my heart.
“You’ve taken possession of my heart little by little, and now you own it, Maby. Completely.”
I love the controversy that surrounds S. Walden’s books, you are either going to love them or hate them. When Good was released and the chatter began, I knew I had to check this one out for myself. Good is only my second book by S. Walden but I can say she is slowly becoming one of my ‘must read’ authors. As well as a thought provoking subjects, you also get a realistic story, even though people may squirm or disagree with events that take place within the pages of S. Walden’s books, there is no denying that the same situation is happening around the world right now. It is the truth of S. Walden’s words I admire, why should teacher/student relationships not be explored?
Cadence is a good girl, one mistake costs her a stint in Juvie and also the loss of trust between her parents. She can’t breathe without their permission. So her life begins to perk up when the hot highway stranger she met so briefly turns out to be her new calculus teacher. She knows her little school girl crush won’t go anywhere but what happens if the teacher flirts back? Who is doing the pursuing then?
Good was a very detailed journey of Cadence and her move from a very immature seventeen year old school girl to a young adult. Cadence had to deal with love, lies, heartache, loss and treachery. I think S. Walden captured Cadence’s persona really well. Cadence was awkward and naive. Yes some of her words were cringe inducing but that’s exactly what an inexperienced seventeen year old would say.
I think Mark is the dividing line in this novel. You are either going to love or hate him. And I think this is where the controversy stems from. I didn’t see Mark as a book boyfriend. He didn’t win me over and I wasn’t rooting for him to be with Cadence or vice versa. I was suspicious, wary and not entirely convinced of his motives. But that’s the thing, I’m not sure S. Walden created him to be a character we fell in love with. I believe the story is written in such a way that the author doesn’t condone or protest against this relationship. It is left for us to read it and make up our own minds.
I seen Mark as a predator, he really did set his sights on Cadence. He was the adult in this relationship and at every turn he knew better. Not that I’m saying a seventeen year old and a twenty eight year old can’t fall in love. Who am I to judge that. What didn’t sit well with me was the humiliation he caused Cadence or the way he could play with her feelings when he decided they were in too deep. If they were truly in love then I believe waiting until she had left school would have been the responsible thing for Mark to do. Of course had that happened we would have no book or controversy for that matter.
I really enjoyed this book, it highlighted a real subject, it may make you feel uncomfortable, no parent would like to think this could be happening to their child without their knowledge. It is definitely thought provoking. It’s not your typical New Adult romance, I kinda did want Cadence to be with Mark but only for her sake as she had many highs and lows with him. And as for Mark, well the jury is still out on that one.
The writing flowed really well. A lot of drama and deceit went on that kept me engrossed to the very end. The side characters were comical and crucial as well. Cadence found an unexpected friend in an old lady called Fanny who was open minded and was there to offer Cadence advice.
For me this was a very entertaining read. It ends in a cliffhanger, I wasn’t annoyed at that as I usually am, I just felt the urge to have the next instalment now!! I do wonder what is next in store for Cadence and Mark. With S. Walden I know not to expect all sunshine and flowers. This story could literally go in any direction. The anticipation is certainly a good thing.
If you have an open mind and lots of intrigue then I suggest you check out Good for yourself today. You may be surprised with how much you love to hate it.
“Honey if butterflies lasted forever, do you think there’d be divorces and breakups and heartache?” ~ Fanny
“Love comes in all kinds of packages. Some are neatly tied up, and some are messy. It doesn’t mean the messy ones aren’t every bit as good.” ~ Fanny
“But the truth is that I liked this song the second I heard it because it was me, right on the edge of choice- that space between moving towards something positive or falling into the abyss. I chose to fall. One time. Just once. And now everything had changed, and I couldn’t stand the darkness.” ~ Cadence
*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.*
This is the first book I’ve read by Summer Walden and HOLY CRAP! I am now a fan, not just a little fan either. This woman can write so well, and took me on such a journey in GOOD. I was told that her writing can push the limits of comfort, and does it? Hell yes it does!! Was I uncomfortable at times? Hell yes I was!! And I LOVED every single page of it! I love reading books that make me feel a little naughty for reading them, NOT sex- naughty more like taboo-sneaky-naughty! Like when explaining this book to my husband he gave me a weird look-naughty. So I just told him to shut it, and I kept on reading! This book is AMAZING!!! I’m not even joking a little, it will melt you in places you didn’t even know you had!
This book is about as controversial as they come, and is most definitely not your typical teacher/student love affair. Cadence Miller is a seventeen year old high school senior who spent most of her junior year in juvenile detention for being an accomplice to a robbery. Add on being super high while she was caught and this leads to a major lockdown on Cadence’s freedom during her senior year. Now back in school, Cadence is treated so badly by her fellow classmates that she is now the major outcast of the school. The bullying is present every day, and quite honestly I was disgusted with how her parents dealt with it. They turned their cheek to everything Cadence admitted to them, and their attitude towards Cadence in this regard was so indifferent that it made me sick. And these are Church going spiritual people we’re talking about! I guess that whole forgiveness crap just went through one ear!
Mark Connelly enters the picture right from the beginning, although his huge role in Cadence’s life isn’t present from the start. It is extremely relevant however. Mark is a very attractive, very smart, very 28 year old teacher at Cadence’s school, her teacher. Annnnnnnnd there it is… 28 and 17. The two numbers that would make most Moms’ run for the hills, and make ALL Dads’ polish their gun!! But let’s not forget that we are in Georgia where the age of consent is 16. I’m not sure why, but this actually helped me out while reading the book. I would have loved this story regardless, but I guess it made me feel better about thoroughly enjoying it! Funny I know… The way that Cadence and Mark’s relationship grew together was so good for me that I actually experienced butterflies while reading it! So did I feel guilty? Nope, not one bit! Mark completely stole my heart in every sense of the word, he was sweet charismatic, HOT, in love with music, and quite the smooth/dirty talker in the bedroom! I loved everything about him!
This book had me feeling every single emotion that I wanted to feel, even a couple that I didn’t know wanted to come out! The whole premise of “Forbidden Love” can be intoxicating book honey to all of us right? This is so different than anything I’ve ever read, and made me feel so good inside! I know how corny and cheesy that sounds but I don’t care! Cadence and Mark go through some typical relationship crap, and get off track a little, have great makeup sex, go through some even more traumatizing couple stuff, and then in the end everything blows up big time! It’s safe to say I’m not a big fan of Cadence’s Dad. I won’t tell you why but I’m going to need the next book like YESTERDAY!! Yes this ended in a cliff, not a major one but enough to keep me very intrigued for the next book! Summer Walden did a great job with this book, and I truly LOVED it. Go read it now!!!!
Here is some GOOD stuff for ya!
“I felt languid, like a warm rain puddle, and crawled into Mark’s lap with the intention of soaking him.”
“I’ve felt powerful at times. The way you look at me. Like I could make you do anything. Crawl on your knees. Beg me. Is that wrong?”
“All for you Cadence,” Mark replied. “You give me the rhythm. Actually, you are the rhythm.”
“This was pissed off roughness, and I swear he meant to fuck the bitch right out of me.”
“Call me crazy. Call me possessive or unstable or whatever. I don’t care. I’ll kill anyone who hurts you.”
S. Walden used to teach English before making the best decision of her life by becoming a full-time writer. She lives in Georgia with her very supportive husband, who prefers physics textbooks over fiction and has a difficult time understanding why her characters must have personality flaws. She is wary of small children, so she has a Westie instead. She is the USA Today bestselling author of Going Under. When she's not writing, she's thinking about it.
