Reading is my passion, and because of that I created this space to share my thoughts on books I read in form of reviews. Also to help authors spread the word on new books, sales and/or cover reveals.
It has been a great joy to get to know some authors in the time I've worked this blog, so now I hope little by little I get to introduce you to some of them, as well as introduce you to new authors.

piece. He knows the attraction isn’t just one-sided.
She’s trying to keep her distance.
It only makes him want her more.

Tonight is a big night.
I’ve taken my time to ensure that I look good.I stare in the mirror as I admire the new lingerie I have to wear
tonight.I used my uniform allowance to
get this sexy getup.Roger expects us to
always be fresh, never wearing the same outfit within a month rotation because
of the regulars. There are no lower class sleezeballs here.This is where the big dogs come out and
play.This is the most private club in
town.If you knew who some of our
highest paying customers were you would know why.
I have a birthday party
that’s reserved the front table of the stage tonight, a group of ten men, all
drunk off their asses already I’m sure.
I could tell when I peeked out the door as they arrived that a few of
them are newbies by their drooling, excited demeanor. This is what makes my job interesting and
fun: breaking them in. A man gets a good first time and they’ll be
coming back for more, meaning more cash for me.
I place my tall heel into the seat of my chair and rub baby oil down my
leg, giving me a sexy edge. Plus, it
keeps the hands from going past the point of restriction.
finish the other leg and take one final look in the mirror. It’s a sexy version of a clown; a white baby
doll trimmed in all of the bright colors. The birthday hat and the sexy makeup
top it off. My ruffle front thong is
orange and it is the final dessert of the hour.
I paint my lips with a matching cherry-red lipstick like my name and
smack them in the mirror.
you’re up in ten. Don’t keep them
waiting. This is my biggest payout of

inside the door. Show the man green and
he’d lease us out in private hotels I’m sure.
He would never admit that though.
be right out, Roger.”
likes me though, because something about my pretty face keeps his pockets
full. I’ve already been up on stage a
few times tonight, so for now I’ll be circulating the room. “Showtime,” I mumble, and strut out into the
club, ready for action.
club is packed with businessmen lingering in various sections of the club. I
love weekends. It’s when all of the high rollers come out to play. They each
have a different story: some leaving their wives at home for a fresh piece,
some making this their last stop before walking the aisle, and the rest college
kids looking for a little fun. I don’t care what they’re here for as long as
their pockets are empty when they leave and they leave everything in the club;
after all, I didn’t make them come here.
I look around the room,
spotting my party sitting in front of the stage. There are a few cute ones in
this batch. This is going to be fun. My eyes lock on one. He takes me in and gives me a smirk before he
starts to approach me. “Hey there, sexy. What can I do for you?”
He broadens his smile
and gives me a wad of cash. “I need a favor.”
“Oh yeah. What’ll it be,
He leans in to whisper
in my ear, refraining from touching me because he knows it’s against the rules
unless he’s buying a dance. “It’s my boy’s birthday. There is enough there for
a hefty tip if you’ll take him to the VIP room for more privacy. I’ve already
booked the dance.”
I look around for Roger
to confirm. I find him standing across the room and he nods at me, giving me the
go ahead. This guy has some nice friends.
A private lap dance is easily a grand and paid up front to Roger. It is explained that’s before the tip, so
this guy knows the rules, meaning he’s been here before. “Okay, sexy, but
that’s an awfully generous gift to give someone else. Are you sure you don’t
want it for yourself?” He’s cute. I wouldn’t mind giving him the dance.
He leans back to look at
me. “As much as I would love to watch you grinding on top of me, my boy comes
first, sexy. Maybe another time; I’ll be back.” He winks and backs away with a
large grin on his face. I shrug seductively as I watch him leave. His loss.
head to the VIP room to get ready for my dance, greeting Gerry at the
door. All private rooms have a bouncer
keeping guard to ensure that the women are safe at all times. As I’m getting my music queued up, I hum
softly under my breath and wait for my client to arrive. A few moments in and
there is a knock at the door. I walk
over and open it. Greeting me on the other side of the door is an incredibly
sexy man. Hell yes, this is going to be
Something about his face
looks familiar, but I can’t place it. He
has dark hair, intense green eyes, and is physically fit by the defined muscle
protruding from his fitted shirt. He must
have come here right after work, because he is wearing a suit, but he’s removed
the jacket and he rolled up the sleeves of his dress shirt, revealing tattoos
running up his arms. I don’t know what
it is about a man with rolled up sleeves and tattoos, but it turns me on in a
way I don’t understand. Maybe it’s the
business meets bad boy persona. Whatever
it is has me motivated to get closer to him, making my job easier.
I step aside to let him enter. “Hi, I’m
He studies me for a
moment with heated eyes. The way he
looks at me is as if he’s seen me before, like he knows me.
“Hi, Cherry.” My name rolls off his tongue in the most
sexual manner, causing a rush of excitement between my legs. This is going to be one hell of a night: sexy
The music starts to play
and I place one hand in the center of my sexy stranger’s chest, grabbing a
handful of black material. I walk
backward and drag him over to the seating area before turning, pushing him
backwards until he falls onto the couch behind him, giving me a deep, sexy
laugh along the way.
“Damn,” he says, egging
me on. Not wasting any time, I place
each hand on the back of the couch to each side of his shoulders and flip my
hair from side to side. It starts the full
body roll that follows, pressing each segment of skin to his clothing, ending
with my pelvis. I stand and turn,
closing in on him, resting against him in a sitting position. I shake my ass against his crotch, enjoying
the feel of it hardening beneath me.
While cupping my breasts I roll my head back, grinding to the beat of
the music. Turning my head to the side,
I watch his eyes glaze over as I touch my body, skimming my hands down in a
slow motion. I continue gyrating on his
lap, listening to his breathing pick up, confirming the arousal that is
pressing into the crack of my ass.
I breathe in deeply…. smelling his citrusy
aftershave; something I would say is unique to him. My hormones are quickly running wild,
something different than normal. It doesn’t take me long to get lost in the
music and this sexy man pressed against my backside as I allow him to become
familiar with my body. Time stands
still…for a while. I hear him grunt, praising
me for the havoc I’m causing on his cock and he isn’t even naked.
I finish out the dance
as the song comes to an end, standing and adjusting my outfit. He stands as I run my fingers through my hair
and I watch as he fishes in his pockets.
He pulls out a wad of cash, handing it all to me. I briefly stare at him in shock, but brush it
off and reach for it. He doesn’t immediately turn it loose.
“How much for house
I’m about to say
something, anything to deny his question, but he beats me to the punch.
“Listen, I don’t usually
come to places like this, but I’m here, and now that I am, I kind of like
it. You have a beautiful body. Let me show you what I can do with mine,” he
What a generous man, but
I can tell he enjoyed the dance from the large bulge at the front of his pants,
so I know what he’s referring to.
“I don’t think so,
I’m ready to thank him
and leave when he grabs my hand, pulling me to him. He presses his lips to mine before I even
know what’s happening. I can taste the
whiskey on his breath. Poor guy is so
drunk I don’t think he knows what he’s asking me, but the way his hands
introduce themselves to my backside I can’t be sure. He pulls away and touches his index finger to
my lips, silencing me.
“Think about it. The club closes at two. I’ll be outside waiting if you decide to take
me up on my offer. Sometimes outside of
the norm can be freeing…”
He turns and walks away, leaving me standing
here alone. I’m not sure what the hell
just happened, but I find myself considering it. I never do this. There’s one reason why….”

About the Author
I was born and raised in Kansas City, MO where I grew up with four older brothers. I now reside in Overland Park, Kansas. I'd always loved to write as a child. My teachers would call home not because I was in trouble but because I had a creative imagination and they wanted my parents to know about the crazy stories I was writing. I've always been a hard worker. I started working with my family's company when I was 15 and still haven't stopped. I am a wife, mother of two, hold down a full time job and am now trying to be a indie author. I have a passion for reading and before I started writing I could be found with a Kindle in my hand morning, noon and night. I'm a picky reader so it's hard to please me but I feel like I have a keen eye for a good book.

The problem with
heartache is that there’s no one-size-fits-all relief package. You can go to
classes; you can try to embrace change. But when you wake up at two in the
morning, a smile on your face because you’ve dreamt about the could have—the should have—nothing will console you.

can rip you apart.
Kate will do anything for her
family. It’s why she took the job with Lee. It’s why she’s attempting to forget
her pain. But it's hard to forget,
when you're desperate to hold on.
Even if Lee Collins is the perfect package.
Lee will do anything for the ones
he cares about. It’s why he hired Kate.
It’s why he keeps his secrets,
and it’s why he cannot, will not fall in love. Not with Kate—not with anyone.
She pointed to the room behind me, and I glanced over my shoulder.
“In there?” I smirked again, but her
cheeks didn’t get any redder, to my astonishment. “Is now really the time?”
She pushed against my naked chest,
her steely eyes fixed on my face the whole time, then slammed the door behind
us with her foot.
“If you wanted some private time
together, you just had to say so.” I joked, leaning back against the chair that
was positioned in front of the mirror in my dressing room.
“You think this is funny?” Kate
asked, her head tilted to the side.
“Actually … yeah.” I nodded and
smiled again, not unkindly.
Kate looked down, and for one
God-awful moment I thought she was going to cry.
Then, she did something better than
crying. Holy mother of crap sticks, was this better than crying.
She raised her hands to the top of
her black button-up shirt—and she undid the top button. Creamy, white skin is
exposed, defined collarbones, teasing my eyes down to—
She undid another button. Holy fuck,
what was Kate doing? Her cleavage heaved in front of me, and I got a hint, just
a hint of her black lacy bra.
“It cannot be a coincidence that one
man is shirtless in front of me six times in two weeks.”
I grinned. She’d counted.
totally means she’s into it.
Then she did something that
completely surprised me. Hell, it shocked the living daylight out of me. In one
fluid movement, she grabbed the sides of her shirt and pulled, popping open her
entire top and then shrugging it over her shoulders so she stood there in the
world’s hottest black, lacy bra, skin-tight black denim jeans and these
shoes—how the hell did I not notice them before?—that were red, high, and sexy
I swallowed. “So … this is a revenge
…” Swallow, “… strip?”
“This is me, trying to do something
to get you to pay attention and listen when I ask you to do something.” Kate’s
voice was honey as it melted into me.
I raised my hand to the back of my
neck and rubbed at the muscles there that had suddenly become tight with
tension. “Oh, I’m paying attention, all right.” I widened my eyes. There was
absolutely no doubt about that right now.
“Get back stage, Lee. Seriously.
This is your last warning.”
I swallowed again, and felt the
clamminess of perspiration beading my brow. Was it hot in here? It sure felt hot.
She stepped close to me, till her
chest was almost touching my chest. Shit, she smelt like soap and hairspray and
… apples. Delicious.
“I …” My gaze flicked to her lips,
and I wondered if it would really be that bad if I kissed her. After all, that
wouldn’t be promising her marriage, and maybe she’d be up for a casual thing.
And her lips—they were so red, and plump, and—oh God, she just licked them with
that sweet-as-hell little tongue, and—
The palm of her hand made contact
with my face before I even registered her arm moving. Five elegant fingers
stung my cheek and I jerked backward, clutching my face in pain. “What the
Kate walked over to where her shirt
lay on the floor and picked it up, casually shrugging it on. She had the
biggest shit-eating grin on her face, and I couldn’t help but give a little
smile myself. I’d not seen her look so animated since she first boarded the
“I told you it was your final
warning,” she said, doing up her buttons, then turned to the door, wrenching it
open and making a sweeping gesture with her arm, allowing me passage through.
“Now, Mr Collins, if you please.”
“Thanks,” I mumbled, walking past
her and out into the corridor. I passed Xander’s door, and a thought flashed
through my mind. What if she stripped for all the guys to get them on stage? I
couldn’t have her just—
“Lee?” The voice halted me in my
tracks. I spun to face her.
She threw my black shirt at me. “Put
some clothes on.”
