Synopsis for COLE’:

I shouldn’t have remembered him.
He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn’t know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all.
But I could feel him.
The tingle down my spine. The command in his presence. The snap of tension in the air around him. That was the first time I saw him, and I was captivated.
The second time was different.
He was in the mysterious back elevator of my apartment building. Our eyes met for a fleeting second before the doors closed, and I was staggered. My breath was robbed. My senses on high alert. My body hummed.
That was just the beginning.
He was the leader of the mafia. I was about to fall in love with him, and his name…
Cole Mauricio

My ‘Blogging Readers ARC-Review’ after reading ‘COLE’:

“Cole” is the latest novel from author TIJAN. If you’re familiar with the amazing Carter Reed Series, you’ll absolutely want to read this. This novel falls into the genres of new adult and dark contemporary romance. It definitely offers a satisfying amount of suspense as well. Cole is written in the main character P.O.V’s(Point of views) of Addison Bowman and Cole Mauricio.

Addison moved to Chicago two years earlier with her husband Liam and their dog Frankie. When her world was hit by a heartbreaking incident, she had to do her best not to fall apart. Her best friend Sia finds a place for Addison, she considers the move. The place Sia found is an exclusive, beautiful building simply called “The Mauricio.” To escape the ghosts and the loneliness, Addison decides to make the move. She has no idea how much her life would change from this point on. Will Addison be able to regain her life? How will this move change her world?

Cole Mauricio is the leader of a very powerful and dangerous Mafia Family. He lived and survived during a war between the Mauricio family and the Bertal family, barely. He tries to keep some small portion of normalcy in his life with the well-protected and private apartment building that he owns. When he meets his newest tenant, his attraction to her is alluring but also dangerous in a completely different way. Will the peace between the families continue or will something break that rocky peace apart?

“Cole” is a compelling novel that definitely can be read as a stand-alone but is more pleasurable if you read The Carter Reed novels prior. It’s fascinating to see familiar characters from Tijan’s “Carter Reed” story intertwine in this latest novel. This story-line truly delivers on a blossoming romance, with seductive characters, and the fast-paced action and suspense. I recommend this alluring read for those who can enjoy a lot of sexy romance tied into the Mafia world. And for fans of The Carter Reed and Cole novels, you’ll be excited to hear that a Carter Reed 3 novel is coming soon! So be ready. As for “Cole,” you should for sure not pass this one up! 🙂

The Synopsis:

If you love the stepbrother romances of Sabrina Paige, Caitlin Daire, and Krista Lakes, you’ll fall hard for Laura Marie Altom’s tale of forbidden love—a red-hot novel in her Shamed series featuring two tortured souls with an unbreakable bond.

As the chief legal counsel for dot-com billionaire Liam Stone, Garrett Marsden has grown accustomed to being universally loathed. In fact, he welcomes it. Because the bigger the fight, the easier it is to run from his desire for someone he can never have: his stepsister. But when Garrett flies back to Julep, Mississippi, for Savannah’s med school graduation, a steamy encounter makes all his wildest dreams come true—and leads to his undoing. Because that’s when he meets Savannah’s boyfriend.

Five years later, Savannah Boudreaux couldn’t be happier as a small-town Southern doctor and single mom to a young son. There’s only one thing missing. Her stepbrother, Garrett, has just been released from prison, and although he may be a free man, he’s become a bitter shadow of the kind and caring man who once came to her rescue. Now Savannah will cross the line to save Garrett from himself: to prove that he can live his life, love whoever he wants . . . and be a wonderful father to their son.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘STEPPING OVER THE LINE’ by Laura Marie Altom:

“Stepping Over The Line” is the first novel in the new Stepbrother Series by author Laura Marie Altom. This novel is a part of the Contemporary Romance genre and offers a twisted-romance that is both taboo and unconventional. Regardless, the emotional connection and the secrets make for such an entertaining story. Stepping Over The Line is written in the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views) of Savannah Boudreaux and Garrett Marsden.

When Garrett Marsden was first introduced to Savannah,  they were both teenagers who’s parents were getting married. Any kind of attraction felt from either of them was squashed and ignored because they would become step-siblings and nothing more. Garrett Marsden has been known as a jerk, heartless and soulless because of his “I don’t care” attitude. He’s a rich, tough attorney as well as a sexy male specimen who finds it easy to pick any female he wants- except one. The One who has had his attention since they were teenagers when they were first introduced by his father. His step-sister Savannah.

Savannah is a beautiful and hard worker who has a good head on her shoulders. Her future is set with a residency waiting for her in Boston after graduating from medical school. Her dark hair and green eyes have always been on Garrett’s mind but things would change in a completely different direction on the night of her graduation. Savannah and Garrett take their eager curiosity and twisted-attraction down a road of no return together.

Savannah finds herself in a surprising circumstance that will change her life completely. It brings up new questions about her feelings and her future involving Garrett and her current boyfriend Chad. When Savannah and Garrett find Chad in a revealing situation, things quickly go downhill, bringing them to a terribly heartbreaking split in the road of their lives. Chad’s brother Canton enters the picture as a friend to Savannah, bridging the past and present after tragedy ties their two families together.

Unfortunately, there are secrets waiting to be found but a few people are determined to keep them hidden for different reasons. Who can Savannah trust and will her secrets destroy everyone in her life? How will Garrett’s life be changed and will he ever get passed those drastic changes? And who is really not as they seem? This story-line has many twists-and-turns and unexpected moments that will send readers through some ups and downs with these characters. They aren’t perfect. They find themselves dealing with their emotions and situations in different ways. This is worth checking out if you enjoy stories with forbidden love interests and dark sordid secrets. If you enjoy that, then this book is for you! 🙂

⭐★⭐

The Synopsis for ‘EVERYTHING I LEFT UNSAID’:

Fans of Jodi Ellen Malpas, K. Bromberg, and Joanna Wylde will be unable to resist this sexy, deeply intimate tale of a woman running from her past, and the darkly mysterious man who sets her free.

I didn’t think answering someone else’s cellphone would change my life. But the stranger with the low, deep voice on the other end of the line tempted me, awakened my body, set me on fire. He was looking for someone else. Instead he found me.

And I found a hot, secret world where I felt alive for the first time.

His name was Dylan, and, strangely, he made me feel safe. Desired. Compelled. Every dark thing he asked me to do, I did. Without question. I longed to meet him, but we were both keeping secrets. And mine were dangerous. If I took the first step, if I got closer to Dylan—emotionally, physically—then I wouldn’t be hiding anymore. I would be exposed, with nothing left to surrender but the truth. And my truth could hurt us both.

 

__________________________________________________

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘EVERYTHING I LEFT UNSAID’ by Molly O‘Keefe:

I was granted the chance to check out this new novel and here is my honest review after reading a copy of “Everything I Left Unsaid”, the first novel of a new series by Author Molly O’Keefe. This is the first novel I’ve read from this author and I have to say that I’m very interested in reading more, especially from this new series. This comes from the Adult genre as well as Contemporary Romance, Suspense and Erotic Romance genres and it definitely delivers in those expected needs. Readers will get to read the story through the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views) from Annie McKay and Dylan Daniels.

Annie McKay grew up on a huge farm in Oklahoma, raised by her mother who never really showed affection or love which causes Annie to not have a normal loving relationship with her mother. All Annie grew up knowing was the farm life and not much else. The only real friend she had growing up was an older man by the name of “Smith” who also met the needs of a father figure for Annie. When her mother ends up passing away, Annie is left with a huge farm to tend to and not one clue on how to truly run it. At this time, an employee on the farm, a man named Hoyt steps up and offers to give her the help she needs. Everything seemed to be going well and eventually they marry, against Smith’s warnings. Annie didn’t want to be alone and was afraid of trying to run the farm all by herself, so she gave into Hoyt and his overly helpful ways. Not long after, Annie realizes the huge mistakes she’s made since the moment she allowed Hoyt to be such an intricate part of her life. He’s controlling, manipulative, violently-abusive and cold as ice with her. Her life became a numbing seclusion from everyone around. After one terrible night, Annie decides to flee with only a few thousand dollars and a new look to hide who she is.

Annie finds herself as a new resident in a seedy little place named Flowered Manor Trailer Park and Camp Ground in a random small town inside of North Carolina. She’s colored her hair, from the usual natural redlocks and is determined to stay hidden, just in case. Upon moving in, she comes across a cell phone as it begins to ring. Hesitantly, she answers. The voice on the other end of the line becomes a whole mysterious, highly seductive and potentially dangerous person that she did not expect.

Dylan Daniels grew up with their father named Ben and a mother named Maria. His mother was a beautiful and caring woman but his father was something else. He used to make him and his older brother Max feel like they were never good enough and needed to toughen up. Despite his childhood and teen years of getting into trouble with Max, he grew up to be cold, with a drive to succeed. After an accident changed his life in a way, he began to go in a different direction. The scars of life still influence his life deeply. So deeply that he now lives up high at a mountain top, practically secluded from society and has no plans on changing his ways. That is…until he makes one phone call and hears the voice on the other end that may actually become a threat to his stubborn ways.

When Annie decides to hide the truth about herself, will she ever regain her identity as Annie or will she get lost in the fake new persona of “Layla?” What dark secrets is Dylan keeping about himself? Will Annie and Dylan give into their growing sexual tensions or are they both destined to be on the run from their past emotional issues? Will their pasts’ ever catch up to them? This novel was very enjoyable with the dark, suspenseful, erotic and dramatic storyline. The female character, Annie, seems broken yet strong in some ways because she’s a survivor and a fighter deep down inside. Dylan, the main male character, is sexy, dark and mysterious, but you can tell he is carrying some major emotional baggage but still he can’t hide that he can be a truly caring person. Note: There is mention of abuse from Annie’s past relationship with Hoyt and mature sexual content in this novel. I do recommend this novel because it really was compelling and telling in many entertaining moments. It’s worth checking out, if you’re looking for a new series to try out. Check this one out, readers! 🙂

Knights Rebels MC Series 3b DesertionMore Buy Links: 

The Synopsis for ‘DESERTION’:

Honor.
Courage.
Commitment.

Three things Jesse Carter has lost. A former Marine, Jesse used to stand proud of his achievements and live by the code. But when circumstance made him question everything he believed in, those most basic values didn’t feel so important after all.

Sex.
Lies.
Knights Rebels.

Three things Jesse Carter has found. Reborn into a brotherhood not so different from the one he left behind, Jesse finds it all too easy to block out his past and claim the role as the Rebels’ fun loving player.
Until he meets Bell.

Shy, awkward, and with troubles of her own, Bell Johnson’s no stranger to hiding her pain. When Jesse forces himself into her life, she’s at risk of her defenses crumbling.

Does Bell have the strength to survive Jesse and his demons or is she fated to become another casualty in the self-destruction of Jesse Carter?

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘DESERTION’ (Knights Rebels MC Series book #3):

***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novels of the Knights Rebels MC Series.***

The third installment in the Knights Rebels MC Series titled “Desertion” by Author River Savage continues to follow the world revolving the club’s characters and the ladies in their lives. This novel focuses on Jesse and “Nurse Bell”, who ran into each other at the hospital earlier through the series. Desertion is written in the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views), Jesse Carter and Bell Johnson.

Jesse Carter is the Knights Rebels MC brother who is always upbeat, pulls women with just a smile, and keeps things only surface-deep. This is because behind that sexy smile, alluring personality and tough exterior, he hides dark secrets that have slowly been eating away at him. Not even his MC brothers know much about it. He joined the Marines and survived but not without internal scars and wounds that aren’t visible with the eye. His relationship with his father has always been a painful one because of the controlling and abusive ways that his father raised Jesse and his brothers, Jackson and Jay. He’s never been able to truly get past his childhood scars and dark memories. Once he joined the Marines under the pressure from his father, a former Marine, he made close bonds and survived close calls. But with those close calls he always walked away with more scars and wounds that still haunt him at night. When he meets “Nurse Bell”, he notices how beautiful she is, how she doesn’t react to him like most girls do, and she seems innocent, which just makes Jesse curious about Bell so much more.

Bell Johnson works long days and nights as a nurse and keeps her life safe and simple. She does this mostly to make sure not to stress her parents out or to cause them worry. When her sister Paige disappeared, when they were only teenagers at the time, destroyed their family. Her parents now worry so much for Bell and her younger sister Ava after their sister never made it back home. Bell at 23 now, has decided to continue to live in her parents home and under their rules because she herself had been drastically effected by Paige’s disappearance as well. Life seemed to flow and Bell lived her life as she had been doing for the past years, with only worrying about pleasing her parents. That was true until biker flirt Jesse came around and really started to notice her more than she could ever have imaged on a girl’s night out. She knew him vaguely but he was someone that was so hard to ignore. And the attraction was definitely something that was strong. Bell had no idea what was to come.

What happened to Paige? Will Bell’s determination ever lead to answers about her sister Paige’s disappearance? Will Jesse ever get Bell to give him a chance or is he destined to continue his life as a shallow womanizer? Will Jesse ever share about his dark secrets and nightmares? “Desertion” is definitely my favorite of this series! Don’t get me wrong, I love each novel of this series so far but this one was deep, erotic, emotional, and mind-blowing in so many ways. I love Jesse! He is one of my favorite biker-book-boyfriends. ❤ He was a Marine, firefighter and biker… what more do you need? He has a heart of gold when he’s not trying to hide it under his battle wounds and past scars. And he’s absolutely sexy as heck, so that is a plus too. Bell is innocent because of the sheltered life she’s allowed herself to live in some ways, mostly because of what happened to Paige. This novel is deep and dark, gritty and amazing. I truly recommend this novel and this series. So worth checking out! Pick up your copy as soon as you can and add it to your “Must Read” list! Such an awesome story. I’m looking forward to reading the 4th novel of this series “Infatuation” next. Hoping it’s Paige’s story…we’ll see. Either way, I know it will be a good one, too! 🙂

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘DESERTION’

Bell’s thoughts:  I can’t control that one of my sisters is missing, taken from us without a trace, and in turn, my mother keeps me on a tight leash. Nor can I explain how I allow it all to happen. When it comes to my family, I can’t say no or bring them disappointment, because if I do, I’ll only bring more pain. To everyone involved.

Jesse’s thoughts: I joined the Marines. I went to war and I served my country. At first, it wasn’t what I really wanted, but like everything I’ve ever done, I gave it my all. I fought for my country and for the lives lost, but in the process, I lost a little of myself. It was my decision to serve, but it hasn’t stopped me from letting the anger eat at me. If I hadn’t let my father’s words push me, maybe I wouldn’t be here.

Bell’s thought: He looks back, his eyes pure seduction, dripped in mischief. I hold on to them, wondering what it means. I was right when I said this man is a puzzle. One minute, It’s like I’m looking into the eyes of a man falling apart, fighting demons, and the next, he’s playing with me. If only I knew which one was the real Jesse Carter.

Jesse and Bell: “Even just you looking at me now, you have no idea what you’re doing to me. The need to consume you is so strong, but I know I can’t do it. It’s like I’m waging a war inside me. My head knows it’s a bad idea, but no matter how hard I try to stay away, my body craves you.”
His words do things to me I never knew possible.

Jesse and Bell: “I don’t know what to do with you, Bell.” He pulls back and rests his forehead to mine. “I feel like something is happening and I don’t understand it,” he confesses. Again, I get the sincere Jesse.
“I’m not doing anything special, Jesse.”
“But you are, don’t you see? My whole club can see.”
“See what?” I ask, at a loss.
“See that you make me want to be different. You make me need you,” he whispers, and I understand his fight. He just doesn’t realize that he doesn’t have to fight it. It’s not meant to be hard.

Never Loved by Charlotte Stein

The Synopsis:

Perfect for fans of Abbi Glines, the first novel in the Dark Obsession series tells the story of a beautiful wallflower who falls for a chiseled street fighter—and learns just how dangerous love can be.

Beatrix Becker spent most of her life under the thumb of her controlling, abusive father. And now that she’s free and attending her dream college, she has no idea how to act like the normal crowd: partying, going on dates, even having a conversation. Then she meets Serge Sorensen. Big and surly with a whole host of riotous tattoos, Serge is supposed to scare the hell out of her. But beneath his harsh exterior, Beatrix discovers a kindred spirit who knows what it’s like to be a misfit. Most exhilarating—and terrifying—is what he does for a living: illegal street fighting.

There’s nothing like the rush Serge gets from the intense athleticism and brutal glory of combat—though his chemistry with Beatrix comes close. Slowly at first, he introduces her to his world, where he lives by instinct, passion, and desire. He even helps her out with her equally traumatized brother. But when Serge gets in too deep with the wrong people, he ends up paying in blood. And suddenly, just as Beatrix has been drawn into Serge’s perfectly sculpted arms, she’s thrown once and for all into the fight of his life.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘NEVER LOVED’ (A Dark Obsession Novel Series – book #1):

This is the first novel I’ve read by author Charlotte Stein titled “Never Loved.” This novel is of the new adult and contemporary romance genres with a little suspense intertwined. Never loved is of the new novel series called Dark Obsession Novel Series and definitely had a generous amount of erotic moments as well. This novel is written from the main female character’s P.O.V.(point of view) Beatrix Becker.

Growing up with an aggressively-abusive and controlling father, scarred Beatrix Becker and her brother Tommy. Despite surviving that life, Beatrix became her brothers protector while trying to better her future as a college student while continuing to carry many of the controlled characteristics she learned under her father’s manipulative ways. By taking on the role of protector to her brother Tommy, as soon as they were out of their father’s home, he would constantly find himself in bad situations. Beatrix would always be the one to help him and make sure he was safe. Freedom was a great thing but Tommy got out of control at times with bad habits he picked up with that new-found freedom. When Beatrix goes out in search of her brother once again, she finds herself in dangerous situations at times but this time, she is faced with a different kind of danger: the danger of having an unfamiliar attraction to a man that most see as a scary man but she sees something more.

Serge Sorensen looks like a dangerous and scary man to anyone he comes across. The tattoos, the unique hairstyle, his giant-massive six-foot-something height, and the reputation in the street fighting world tends to confirm that he is not one to be messed with. When this sweet little college girl comes face to face with him, he has no idea the strange connection they feel is just the beginning. Even though Serge feels this urgent need to constantly protect Beatrix or “Bea” as he prefers to refer to her, he wants to protect her from his screwed up self also. So he finds himself pushing her away. His father was a drunk who would take it out on Serge but even though he became rough and tough, there was always deeper layers that not many knew about. No one could see his heart, but could Beatrix be the one to break through his tough exterior?

Will Tommy bring his sister Beatrix down with the bad situations he always finds himself in? What secrets is Serge keeping? Will Beatrix ever come out of her shell? Never Loved is more or less an enjoyable story because of the characters and the flow of most of the storyline. I wish the epilogue continued the story in a thorough way instead of the way it went. I was left assuming of where they were and what had become of them. There were some great spots in the story where you can completely get enraptured by the character interactions between Beatrix and Serge. At times, there were a few moments, and I mean very few, that kind of brought down my enjoyment of this novel. The story is there and had its good layers but some of the wording used to describe characters and some of the situations threw me off. On the plus side: This novels steamy scenes were very enticing and alluring. Those moments alone, made this story worth continuing to see how the story would unfold. All in all, this story was an okay novel. If you are looking for something decent to read next, give this one a chance if this sounds like your kind of novel.

Tempted By Pleasure by Devon Hart

The Synopsis:

Nothing exciting happens to someone like me. I live between the lines, only dreaming about breaking the rules. My chance at love disappeared the night I left home to escape my old life.

Eight years later, I never expected that “old life” to resurface in my bookstore.

Foster Wagner is the type of man most women would crawl through fire or broken glass to possess. And judging by the way he’s staring, that danger goes both ways.

I’m in trouble.

Note: Part Two will be released within the next few weeks.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘TEMPTED BY PLEASURE’ (Secret Invitation Part 1):

Tempted By Pleasure is a new contemporary romance novel by a new author by the name of Devon Hart. This story is not a long novel but it is full of captivating characters and a great storyline. It is the start of what seems to be a fantastic new little series. The main female character finds herself experiencing new things and having a blast from her past. There is a nice flow to the story and a nice touch of steamy scenes and romance in this. The novel is written from the two character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views), Erin Covington and Foster Wagner.

Erin Covington comes from a life of privilege and wealth but has grown into a dependent person who owns her own bookstore. She remembers a guy in high school named Foster Wagner, who unfortunately became the one who got away because he also broke her heart. She is informed by her parents that in order to inherit her father’s fortune, she must marry the son of her parent’s close friends’, Thomas Kingsley. Her parents are adamant that she simply follow what they are requesting of her but she has one major problem besides being told who to marry…she can’t stand him. The stakes are definitely high for the outcome of Erin’s future. What is behind her parents push for her to marry someone like Thomas?

Things get flipped upside down when Erin receives a mysterious invite in her mailbox offering her something mysteriously sexy. Is it a joke or is this strangely appealing invite something worth considering? As the girl who follows what her parents usually say and normally lives close to a straight-laced life, she considers this peculiar invite. Erin is stuck in the middle of fending for herself and living off of her own funds or giving into her parents request by marrying a guy she doesn’t like and can’t really stand. What this invitation leads her to may actually be what she needs in her life right now. But is there more to this invite than what she knows? Lazarus…a super secret club that allows selected members to let go of their inhibitions without judgement or repercussions to the private society.

But then, in comes a blast from the past…Foster. Foster Wagner is set on wanting to make contact with Erin after eight years since she moved away. In high school he could be described as an arrogant jock who loved the ladies. But when he shows up out of the blue, he’s on a mission. Erin doesn’t have a clue why he would seek her out after all of this time. In her opinion, he’s a misogynistic guy, who comes from money and thinks too highly of himself. What does he want after all of this time? Foster has a plan. Foster has a little secret that he doesn’t plan to expose immediately but he really hopes to lure Erin into his seductive concept. The more he learns about her, the more he becomes intrigued by the present day Erin. Even his closest friend and partner Dr. Kevin Mallory finds her to be alluring also and a change from the women they usually interact with. What does Foster have planned? Will it be what Erin falls for or will the past make her push him away forever?

Tempted By Pleasure is the new novel by Devon Hart and is part 1 of a new series! It’s a fast read but definitely is such an alluring, steamy and mind-blowing read. I enjoyed every last bit of it and can not wait to check out part 2, which is set to release in the next couple of weeks after the release of part 1. How awesome is that?! No long wait at all! The characters are well-written, sexy and pull you into the story. Heads up: It leaves the story on a slight cliffhanger but knowing that part 2 is about 2 weeks away, it is definitely worth checking out. What will Erin decide? Will she do what her parents want her to do or will she follow her heart? You should definitely give this novel a chance. So worth it! 🙂

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘TEMPTED BY PLEASURE’

Erin’s thoughts:  I turn the page in my album focusing on Foster Wagner, my high school sweetheart- the one who some say got away. They don’t know the truth about what happened between us, why I left Corpus Christi eight years ago. There’s too many bad memories mixed in with the good. But it doesn’t dissuade me from admiring his handsome face or appreciating the warmth of his smile. Parts of him stayed with me that I’m sure will remain forever.

Erin’s thoughts:  Welcome to a game of risk and indiscretion. The prize: a night of passion. The price: your silence.
A joke. That’s the first thing that crosses my mind. Perhaps my sorority sisters or the ladies I work with decided to prank me. Halloween is only three weeks away. I drop the strange invitation on the coffee table and stretch my legs out. My life could use a little excitement.
Okay, it needs a complete overhaul.

Erin’s thoughts:  Understanding the kind of wealth my parents have is almost impossible for anyone to understand, even myself. But if I do as my father wishes, my future is set. With so much financial uncertainty in the world, am I wrong for wanting that kind of security?
I’ve never even kissed Thomas. How can we contemplate marriage?

Foster’s thoughts:  Her thick lashes flutter as she avoids eye contact. Although she doesn’t recognize me, she’s undeniably guarded. Maybe there’s a subconscious alarm going off in her head. Regardless, the attraction is obvious, whether she knows me or not. And if I have my way, her defensive walls are going to crumble soon. Nothing has changed between us, never will.

Foster’s thoughts:  What happened to the incorruptible little prude from high school? Has she finally surrendered to her sensuality, learned to accept what comes naturally to everyone? Is she into kink? By responding, she’s proven one thing, she’s into something, and I plan on finding out what it is.

Erin’s thoughts:  Whenever no one is watching, I inhale a romance or two. Turns out I want what every woman desires, freedom to express myself without feeling guilty, especially sexually.

Foster and Erin:  She’s still my angel, the moral compass I always needed to help keep me on the straight and narrow. Only she’s gone from pretty to beautiful.
“If I agree to meet you for lunch, will you stop harassing me?”
“Can’t make any promises.” I’d do anything for her, but I can’t let her know that too soon.
