THE BUTCHER BY JENNIFER HILLIER


Synopsis
From the author of the acclaimed suspense novels Creep and Freak and whom Jeffery Deaver has praised as a “top of the line thriller writer,” The Butcher is a high-octane novel about lethal secrets that refuse to die—until they kill again. 

A rash of grisly serial murders plagued Seattle until the infamous “Beacon Hill Butcher” was finally hunted down and killed by police chief Edward Shank in 1985. Now, some thirty years later, Shank, retired and widowed, is giving up his large rambling Victorian house to his grandson Matt, whom he helped raise. 

Settling back into his childhood home and doing some renovations in the backyard to make the house feel like his own, Matt, a young up-and-coming chef and restaurateur, stumbles upon a locked crate he’s never seen before. Curious, he picks the padlock and makes a discovery so gruesome it will forever haunt him… Faced with this deep dark family secret, Matt must decide whether to keep what he knows buried in the past, go to the police, or take matters into his own hands. 

Meanwhile Matt’s girlfriend, Sam, has always suspected that her mother was murdered by the Beacon Hill Butcher—two years after the supposed Butcher was gunned down. As she pursues leads that will prove her right, Sam heads right into the path of Matt’s terrible secret. 

A thriller with taut, fast-paced suspense, and twists around every corner, The Butcher will keep you guessing until the bitter, bloody end. 

Reactions 
This story intrigued me as soon as I've read the synopsis.

From the beginning, I liked that the reader is able to know the identity of the serial killer. This helped to get into his head and see his interactions with others. He really likes to play with fire, manipulating people. 
This character is intriguing, captivating as well as repugnant. But he made me curious. I would have enjoyed if the author had allowed me to go a little more into the serial killer's mind. 

I also liked the weight of family secrets and choices that ambition can lead to.

I admit I had a great time with the characters and the plot. For cons, I did not have the "wow" factor or some racing of my heart that would have made me devour this novel. 

I had a great time but not intense enough for my taste!

*THE BUTCHER BY JENNIFER HILLIER 

Traduction du synopsis
Par l'auteur des romans à suspense acclamé "Creep" et "Freak" et qui a été salué par Jeffery Deaver comme "un écrivain de thriller de haut niveau", The Butcher est un roman de très bonne qualité sur les secrets qu'ils refusent de mourir jusqu'à ce qu'ils soient tués à nouveau . 

Une série de meurtres en série macabres ont pourri Seattle jusqu'à ce que le tristement célèbre "boucher de Beacon Hill" soit finalement pourchassé et tué par le chef de la police, Edward Shank, en 1985.
Maintenant, trente ans plus tard, Shank, retraité et veuf, a légué sa maison victorienne à son petit- fils Matt qu'il a aidé à élever. 

En s'installant dans sa maison d'enfance et en faisant quelques rénovations dans le jardin pour s'approprier la maison, Matt, un jeune chef ambulant et restaurateur, trébuche sur une caisse verrouillée qu'il n'a jamais vu auparavant. Curieux, il casse le cadenas et fait une découverte tellement horrible qu'il sera hanté à tout jamais...
Face à ce lourd et sombre secret de famille, Matt doit décider de garder ce qu'il sait être enterré dans le passé, aller à la police, ou prendre les choses en main. 

Pendant ce temps la petite amie de Matt, Sam, a toujours soupçonné que sa mère avait été assassinée par le boucher de Beacon Hill - deux ans après la mort supposée du Butcher. Alors qu'elle poursuit des pistes qui vont la mener à la vérité, Sam se dirige droit vers le terrible secret de Matt. 

Un thriller tendu, avec un suspense trépidant et des rebondissements à chaque coin de rue, The Butcher vous tiendra en haleine jusqu'à la fin sanglante et amère. 

Impressions
Une histoire qui m'a attiré dès le synopsis. 

Dès le début, j'ai aimé que le lecteur connaissance l'identité du tueur en série. Cela a permis de rentrer dans sa tête et de voir ses interactions avec les autres. Il aime vraiment jouer avec le feu, manipuler les gens. 
Ce personnage est intriguant, envoûtant autant que répugnant. Pourtant, il m'a rendu curieuse. J'aurai même aimé si l'auteur m'avait permis de rentrer encore un peu plus dans l'esprit de ce tueur en série. 

J'ai aimé aussi le poids des secrets de famille et les choix que l'ambition peuvent amener à faire. 

J'avoue avoir passé un très bon moment avec les personnages et avec l'intrigue. Par contre, je n'ai pas eu le facteur "wow" ou l'accélération des battements de mon coeur qui m'aurait fait dévorer ce roman.
Bon moment mais pas assez intense à mon goût!

DEATH SWORN BY LEAH CYPESS


Synopsis 
When Ileni lost her magic, she lost everything: her place in society, her purpose in life, and the man she had expected to spend her life with. So when the Elders sent her to be magic tutor to a secret sect of assassins, she went willingly, even though the last two tutors had died under mysterious circumstances. 

But beneath the assassins’ caves, Ileni will discover a new place and a new purpose… and a new and dangerous love. She will struggle to keep her lost magic a secret while teaching it to her deadly students, and to find out what happened to the two tutors who preceded her. But what she discovers will change not only her future, but the future of her people, the assassins… and possibly the entire world. 

Reactions 
A dark story with conspiracies, assassins and a witch without power. 

The story has grabbed me from the start. Very quickly, I found myself wanting to know more about Sorin and the master's assassins. 

Of course, I was interested in Ileni since she is the main character and her presence among the assassins awakens many questions. I expected her death, her murder while turning the pages of this novel. 
I also spent a good time seeking answers to the other assassination regarding the tutors. 

I liked how the heros's minds work doubting all actions, all informations even when love is in the air. They are always on the alert and do not trust anyone. Sad but perfect for this rather cold and dark novel. The relationship to death is also interesting. 

The end has ​​me a little confused because I was expecting a different outcome. But it made ​​me curious ... so I look forward to the sequel...



*DEATH SWORN BY LEAH CYPESS 

Traduction du synopsis
Lorsque Ileni perd sa magie, elle a tout perdu: sa place dans la société, son but dans la vie, et l'homme avec lequel elle avait prévu de passer sa vie. Ainsi, lorsque les aînés l'envoient pour être un prof de magie dans une secte secrète d'assassins, elle y va volontairement, même si les deux derniers tuteurs sont morts dans des circonstances mystérieuses. 

Mais sous les grottes des assassins, Ileni va découvrir un nouveau lieu et un nouveau but ... et une nouvel et dangereux amour. Elle aura du mal à garder son secret concernant la perte de sa magie tout en enseignant à des élèves mortels et en essayant de savoir ce qui s'est passé pour les deux tuteurs qui l'ont précédés. Mais ce qu'elle va découvrir va non seulement changer son avenir, mais l'avenir de son peuple, des assassins ... et peut-être du monde entier. 

Impressions
Une histoire sombre avec des complots, des assassins et une sorcière sans pouvoir.

Le récit est prenant. Très vite, je me suis retrouvée à vouloir en savoir plus sur Sorin et le maître des assassins.

Sur Ileni aussi puisqu'elle est le personnage principale et que sa présence parmi les assassins éveille de nombreuses questions. J'attendais sa mort, son assassinat en tournant les pages de ce roman.
J'ai aussi passé un bon moment à chercher les réponses aux autres meurtres à ses côtés.

J'aime comme l'esprit des héros fonctionnent et les doutes qui subsistent dans toutes leurs actions. Ils sont toujours sur le qui vive et ne font confiance à personne. 
Triste mais parfait pour ce roman assez sombre et froid. Le rapport à la mort est également intéressant.


La fin m'a rendu un peu perplexe car je m'attendais à un autre dénouement. Mais elle m'a rendu curieuse... J'attends donc la suite avec impatience.

PARIS, RUE DES MARTYRS BY ADRIA J.CIMINO

Synopsis 
Some encounters make a difference. 


Four strangers in Paris. Each one is on a quest: to uncover a family secret, to grasp a new chance at love, to repair mistakes of the past. Four stories entwine, four quests become one, as their paths cross amid the beauty, squalor, animation and desolation of a street in Paris, the Rue des Martyrs. 

Rafael's search for his birth mother leads him to love and grim family secrets. Cecile’s view of herself as an unsatisfied housewife is radically changed by the promise of a passionate liaison. Andre, an aging actor, troubled by the arrival of the son he abandoned years ago, must make a choice, to either lose his son forever or put aside pride and seek redemption. Mira travels to Paris to begin a new life and forget about love… or so she intends. 

Four strangers, four stories, one riveting novel. 

Reactions
A gripping story that I was unable to let go of. 

The descriptions of the Montmartre district, the parisian ambience are acurate and wonderfully told. The author was able to provide a realistic atmosphere with fair beautiful words and without cliché. I loved how Adria J. Cimino plays with her words and with her readers. A real treat. 

The characters are endearing. All have flaws and they all want to discover something or run away from their troubles until that have to face life. The fates of the characters intersect and intertwine and this is orchestrated in a subtle way. The author really charmed me, she is very talented and her story is brillant of simplicity. 

As a reader, I was caught by the adventures and I was unable to release my book before discovering the end of the story ... Captivating!

Beautiful discovery and beautiful slice of life. 




Sentences

"What she really meant was that she felt trapped in an artificial world, and it seemed as if no exit was available to her."


From Cecile: "If anything, what Septime might like about me is that I showed him a reality. It's not pretty, and it's not exciting, but it's my life."

*PARIS, RUE DES MARTYRS 
BY ADRIA J.CIMINO 

Traduction du synopsis 
Certaines rencontres font la différence. 

Quatre étrangers à Paris. Chacun est parti dans une quête: pour découvrir un secret de famille, saisir une nouvelle chance d'aimer, réparer les erreurs du passé. 
Quatre histoires s'entrelacées, quatre quêtes devenues une lorsque leurs chemins se croisent au milieu de la beauté, la misère, l'animation et la désolation d'une rue de Paris, la rue des Martyrs. 

La recherche de la mère naturelle de Rafael le conduit à l'amour et à des secrets de famille sinistres. 
Cécile se voit comme une femme au foyer, insatisfaite et sa vie, elle va être radicalement modifiée par la promesse d'une liaison passionnée. 
André, un acteur vieillissant, est troublé par l'arrivée du fils qu'il a abandonné il ya des années, et doit faire un choix: soit à perdre son fils à jamais ou mettre de côté l'orgueil et chercher la rédemption. Mira se rend à Paris pour commencer une nouvelle vie et oublier l'amour ... ou du moins c'était son intention. 

Quatre étrangers, quatre histoires, un roman captivant. 

Impressions
Une histoire prenante que j'ai été incapable de lâcher après avoir commencé.

Les descriptions du quartier de Montmartre, les ambiances, l'auteur est parvenu à proposer une atmosphère réaliste avec des mots justes et sans cliché. J'ai adoré la manière dont l'auteur joue avec les mots et avec son lecteur. Un vrai régal.

Les personnages sont attachants. Tous ont des failles, tous ont envie de découvrir ou de fuir une part d'eux mêmes. 
Les destins des personnages vont se croiser et s'entrelacer. C'est orchestré d'une manière subtile et l'auteur m'a vraiment charmé.

En tant que lecteur, j'ai été happée par les aventures des différents personnages et j'ai été complément incapable de lâcher mon livre avant d'avoir découvert le fin mot de l'histoire...

Très belle découverte et très belle tranche de vie.

LEAN ON ME BY NICOLA HAKEN


TAKE MY HAND VOL 3 

Synopsis 
Rachel Mason oozes confidence. She’s outgoing, adventurous and would chop off her right arm before caring what other people think of her or her disability. 

Right? 

Jared Mattheson on the other hand, is more than a little goofy and a whole lot of carefree. He’s happy living the bachelor life on his father’s credit card, takes nothing seriously and wouldn’t know difficulty if it slapped him in the face. 

Right? 

With Emily and Dexter away in the States, Rachel and Jared are left behind to keep each other company. They share the same sense of fun, their personalities bounce off one another perfectly and perhaps inevitably, they become best friends. But what happens when the lines of friendship start to blur? How will they cope when the sides of themselves they’ve kept hidden from the world for so long begin to show? 

Their journey together may have started with fun, games and alcohol – but it seems the future has other ideas. 
Turns out, even the strongest of people need someone to lean on sometimes. 

Reactions 
I had not read the two previous volumes but it was not a problem to enjoy this story. Quite original, this romance as the merit of having imperfect characters who fight not to show their weaknesses to others.

Rachel is in a wheelchair. Her handicap lead the author to speak about the society look at disabilities. The discomfort and the preconception that may accompany the handicap. 

Conversely, Jared is epileptic. His condition is not something you can see but his attacks have an impact on his life. They also are a disability. 

wo conditions that give substance to this romance by addressing issues of self-perception and the fear of being imperfect, outside the norm.. 

Certainly, there are some lengths but I found the originality of the story interesting enough. I had a good time with Rachel and Jared.



Sentence

"If I hadn’t have felt so stone-cold sober, I would’ve sworn I was drunk." 


*LEAN ON ME BY NICOLA HAKEN 
TAKE MY HAND VOL 3 

Traduction du synopsis
Rachel Mason respire la confiance en elle. Elle est ouverte, aventureuse et elle pourrait se couper son bras droit avant de se soucier de ce que les autres pensent d'elle ou de son handicap. 

Pas vrai ? 

Jared Mattheson de son côté est plus qu'un peu maladroit et facile à vivre. Il est heureux de vivre une vie de célibatire grâce à la carte de crédit de son père et ne prend rien au sérieux. Il ne saurait même ce qu'est une difficulté si elle lui giflé le visage. 

Pas vrai ? 

Avec Emily et Dexter partis aux Etats-Unis, Rachel et Jared sont laissés derrière à se tenir compagnie. Ils partagent le même sens de l'humour, leurs personnalités se mariant parfaitement et inévitablement, ils deviennent de meilleurs amis. Mais que se passe-t-il lors les lignes entre l'amitié et quelque chose d'autre commencent à se brouiller ? Comment vont-ils faire lorsque les côtés d'eux-mêmes qu'ils ont gardé caché au monde entier depuis si longtemps vont commencent à se montrer ? 

Leur voyage ensemble a peut-être commencé avec de la légerté, des jeux et de l'alcool - mais il semble que l'avenir leur réserve autre chose. 

Il s'avère que, même les personnes les plus fortes ont besoin de quelqu'un sur qui s'appuyer parfois. 

Impressions
Je n'avais pas lu les deux précédents volumes et j'avoue ne pas avoir été gênée pour entrer dans l'histoire. Assez originale, cette romance à la mérite d'avoir des personnages imparfaits qui se battent pour ne pas montrer leurs faiblesses aux autres.

Rachel est dans un fauteuil roulant ce qui a permis à l'auteur de parler du regard porté sur les handicapés. L'inconfort et les idées reçues qui peuvent accompagner l'handicap. A l'inverse, Jared est épileptique. Sa condition ne se voit pas mais ses crises ont un impact sur sa vie et l'handicape.
Deux conditions qui permettent de donner de la matière à cette romance et abordant les problèmes de perception de soi, du regard des autres et la peur d'être imparfait.


Certes, il y a des petites longueurs mais j'ai trouvé l'originalité du récit suffisamment intéressante pour passer un bon moment.

EXCERPT

Day 5 ~ Your future boyfriend x
Day five? What the hell was that supposed to mean? Seemed I was about to find out when a few seconds later, Jared let himself into my flat, waving his key proudly in the air and looking too hot for his own good in black jeans and a white shirt with just the right amount of buttons undone at the top.
“Fucker.”
“Good afternoon to you too, saffy. I see you got my flowers?”
“Day five?”
“Today is the fifth day you’ve still not said yes. If I were smarter I’d have started sending them on day one. But I’m not… so we’re starting at day five.”
“Well as long as you know you’re going to end up bankrupt,” I said dismissively, trying to ignore the warm feeling cocooning my heart.
“Nah. It won’t take that long,” he replied confidently. I simply shook my head, amused at his sureness. “You ready?”
“My hair is wet. Do I look ready?”
“You look beautiful.” A smile emerged on my lips without permission, even though I knew he was probably bullshitting me as part of his master plan. “Let me do your hair.”
“My hair. You… want to do… my hair?” What the…
“Sure,” he said, shrugging nonchalantly.
“Um… let me think. How about, fuck no!”
“I’m doing your hair.”
“You are not doing my hair!” I protested, gripping my hand-rims and wheeling away from him.
“I’ll catch you, saffy. I can run faster than you can wheel,” he teased.
“Seriously, I don’t get what’s gotten into you lately!” I stopped, throwing my hands in the air. Damn, I was laughing. I was supposed to be acting pissed off.
“Well I know what’ll be getting into you soon enough.” He strode over to me with a wicked grin illuminating his irritatingly gorgeous face. Then he bent down so his mouth was level with my ear, and when his breath swept across my heated cheeks my breath caught. Damn. “Me,” he whispered throatily.
Ah, fuck. I’m so screwed.

HARPER'S LITTLE SPITFIRE BY ANGEL STEEL

Synopsis 
For the last 15 years, Sage Mathews has had her eye on one of the Harper brothers. Each time she came even remotely close to catching his eye, he ruined it by taking advantage of the closest woman around. Despite her many attempts of capturing his attention, she repeatedly ended up suffering from the pain yet again. Having been hurt for the last time, Sage decides to pull herself away from the bad boys of Laker. 

Fate had a different plan for her… Certain surprises have drawn Sage back into the path of the Harper brothers once again, this time exposing her to their interesting...predilections. Possessing secrets of her own, she is thrown into a world she never thought possible. 

One woman holds the Harper brothers' hearts in the palm of her hands, but the true bad boy for her won't allow her into his heart. Will he ever drop his guard down and finally feel the true love from a woman? Will she allow one of the Harper brothers into her heart? Or will he demolish her entirely for anyone else?

Reactions 
Scenes of torrid hot sex for this story-like fantasies with 4 males partners. 
I found the fantasy of having multiple partners well described and well written with erotic, sexy and graphics words. However, the action lacks credibility. 

While the female characters are adorable, loyal and possess a good sense of humor, the Harper brothers are just sex bombs... And Mac's behavior has rather disturbed me. To be honest, the violence of his words and their wickedness towards Sage deeply tainted my reading. I have not seen the value of this character in this fantasy. 

I was also disappointed by the ending. There is no really closing up scene between Sage and Harper brothers. So I was wondering if there will be a sequel or not?

Perfect for lovers of erotica with multiple partners. However, there are some weaknesses in the plot outside the bedroom.
*HARPER'S LITTLE SPITFIRE 
BY ANGEL STEEL 

Traduction du synopsis
Pendant les 15 dernières années, Sage Mathews a gardé un œil sur l'un des frères Harper. A chaque fois qu'elle est parvenue à capter son regard, il a tout ruiné en sautant sur la première femme la plus proche. 
Malgré ses nombreuses tentatives pour capturer son attention, elle a fini à plusieurs reprises par souffrir. Donc après avoir été blessée pour la dernière fois, Sage décide de se tenir à l'écart des mauvais garçons de Laker.

Mais le destin avait un autre plan pour elle ... Certaines surprises ont attiré Sage à nouveau sur le chemin des frères Harper, cette fois l'exposant à leurs intéressantes ... prédilections. Possédant ses propres secrets, elle est jetée dans un monde qu'elle n'aurait jamais pensé possible. 

Une femme tient le cœur des frères Harper dans la paume de ses mains, mais le vrai mauvais garçon ne lui permettra pas d'entrer dans son cœur. Baissera-t-il sa garde et connaîtra-t-il enfin le véritable amour d'une femme ? Permettra-t-elle à l'un des frères Harper d'entrer dans son cœur ? Ou la démolira-t-il entièrement pour tout le monde ?

Impressions
Des scènes de sexe chaudes bouillantes pour ce récit aux allures de fantasmes avec tous les partenaires masculins de l'histoire.
J'ai trouvé le fantasme d'avoir des partenaires multiples bien décrit et écrit avec une plume très érotique, sexy et graphique. Pourtant, l'action manque de crédibilité.

Certes, les personnages féminins sont adorables de loyauté et de bonne humeur et les frères Harper sont des bombes sexuelles mais le comportement de Mac m'a assez perturbé. Pour être honnête, la violence de ses propos et sa méchanceté a profondément entaché ma lecture. Je n'ai pas vu l'intérêt du personnage dans ce récit.

J'ai également été déçue par la non fin qui laisse espérer un autre volume mais qui ne clôture pas vraiment l'histoire entre Sage et les frères Harper.

Parfait pour les amateurs de lecture érotique avec des partenaires multiples mais des faiblesses dans l'intrigue en dehors de la chambre à coucher.

STILL LIFE WITH STRINGS BY L.H COSWAY - COVER REVEAL




SYNOPSIS
My name is Jade Lennon and I stand still for money.

The night I saw Shane Arthur watching me everything changed. A man in a suit always catches my eye, but it was the way he looked at me that was different. Like he knew me or something. He didn’t know me, especially not in my costume. My sobriety rests on staying away from men, but there was something about him that made me throw caution to the wind.

After all, I was never going to see him again, right?

Wrong.

Standing still isn’t the only way I make my money. I also bartend at a concert hall. Never in my wildest dreams did I think Shane was going to show up there. Not only that, but he’s the most recent addition to the orchestra. So now on a daily basis I have to resist one of the most beautiful men I’ve ever met and he plays the violin. For me that’s one hell of a deadly cocktail.

He wants me to teach him how to live. I’m not sure how much a twenty-six year old recovering alcoholic who works in a bar and moonlights as a living statue can teach a world class concert violinist, but I’m sure going to try.

Still Life with Strings is a story of music, art, sex, magical realism, and romance that you will never forget.

Expected date of publication: March 24th 2014

Excerpt

I exited the car and walked over to him, grabbing him by his silk blue tie and led him to my door. As we entered, Julien, a little predictably, was all over me, tugging and pulling, kneading my skin with his strong hands. We were still tangled together, his lips devouring mine, as he kicked the door shut. Oh how I missed you!

Reluctantly, I pulled away, prying his greedy hands away, and pulling on his tie as I led him into my bedroom. I could feel his intense eyes probing me from behind. Yes, Julien… this was now my show, I’m in charge, I told myself. That first night he was the one who conquered my body but tonight I would seek my revenge on him, exploring him completely.

I brought him to the side of the bed, pulling on him so that his face was inches from mine. I brushed my lips lightly against his as I said, “Don’t move.”

I slid my body onto the queen sized bed, facing him. I loved the animalistic and passionate desire in his eyes as he watched me.

“Slowly take off your clothes Julien,” I commanded.

He groaned softly as he did as he was told. He unzipped and dropped his pants, letting them fall to his feet. His erection sprung out from the confines of his boxers, engorged and ready for attention; and oh what a delightful sight it was! Built perfectly it was long and thick, jerking eagerly as I looked him over. Each time it twitched, my mouth watered at the thought of taking him into my hungry mouth. He removed his pinstriped navy jacket and tossed it aside before finally taking off his shirt and tie, standing completely nude before me. The sight of him melted my insides and a flow of liquid oozed freely between my legs.

“Do you want me Julien?” I asked as I moved closer to the edge of the bed. I watched as his breathing increased, his eyes barely open, but still intense with greedy, lusty desire. The unhinged animalistic man, that had taken me so roughly before, was near the surface and burning to take control but I was not ready to let him take over just yet. Slowly I undressed, leisurely unbuttoning my shirt and slipping my skirt off. I made sure to linger longer than usual, watching as his breath caught in his throat each time an article of my clothing was removed.

“Emily…” he groaned as my bra came off, almost sounding like he was in pain. I left my thong panties on just to extend his torment. He had to wait just a little longer for that. This was definitely my show now and I wanted to take full advantage.

“You didn’t answer my question Julien,” I teased as I nested my legs in between his, inching closer and closer to his engorged thick erection and taking him into my hand. My eyes never left his.

He hissed in agony. “Yes I want you Mon chaton, my kitten. Why must you torture me so?” he said as his eyes closed tightly, tilting his head back. I knew that men like Julien weren’t used to relinquishing power to their women. He was the dominator, but not tonight. Tonight, he would submit first and maybe, just maybe, I would restore the balance of power.

My hands were still on him as I stroked his manhood softly; inching closer, my mouth hovered over him, allowing my hot breath to caress his mushroomed head, causing him to let out a deep, guttural groan.

“How much Julien? How much do you want me baby?” I asked while looking up at him through my lashes. Before he could open his mouth to answer, my lips took him whole. My tongue massaging him with purpose as his body went rigid in agony and pleasure. Oh how I missed him, I thought again.

Slowly I worked him, sucking, and licking; taking him deeper and deeper as his hands found their way to my hair, and guided me down his thick, lovely shaft. His sharp indrawn breath pleased me as I took him in all the way. I knew he was close because a small squirt of liquid caressed my tongue, letting me know I had to stop. I pulled away, letting out a popping sound from the release of suction.

“Don’t,” he cried out, wanting for more.

“Ah, patience Mon amour,” I giggled as I recalled him saying those same words to me when I whimpered for more from him. I felt powerful, sexy and I loved it!

Realizing my chosen phrase, his lips curled up, “Mean, mean woman you are Emily…” he teased.

Slowly I turned over onto all fours. I liked the obedient Julien but it was time to summon the primal animal within him and I knew just what would do the trick. I perked my ass up in the air, giving him a lovely view, my mound wet and dripping with excitement. Come for me Julien, let that animal out.

He groaned and slowly walked up to me, attempting to grab me, but I moved away, “Tsk, tsk, tsk… Didn’t I tell you not to move,” I said, my face turned to him with my ass still in the air. “You don’t want to get punished, do you?” I scowled playfully.

To my surprise, he stepped back, although I could see I was testing his patience. It wouldn’t be long before that primal animal inside of him came rushing to the surface, commanding its power back and taking me just the way it had before. I had just a few more minutes so I had to make it count. Determined, I brought my hand to my mound, caressing my nub as he watched, with his chest flaring up and down, and his eyes seemingly mesmerized.

“Tell me Julien, do you like what I’m doing?” I asked, half teasing but fully aroused.

He grunted, “Ah huh…” his eyes were fixated on my swollen mound as I teased my aching nub.

It was now or never. I slid my finger through my silken folds, feeling my body clench around it, moaning in enjoyment and felt him itching to move closer but halting. I pulled my finger out of me and brought it to my mouth, licking it painfully slow, and tasting my sweet essence. Bingo!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Kim was born and raised in the great state of New York. She is a newly self-published author.
She has always believed that one day she would become an author. She enjoyed reading and writing all of her life and had always felt that it was somewhat of a calling for her. At age 28, she had no idea that she would become an Erotic Romance Author, mostly because she just got into reading Romances and instantly fell in love with the genre.
Kim enjoys the passions of love and believes that there is no greater feeling than the initial jilt we get when we first meet that right person. Wanting to provide romance readers with stories that they can feel and get lost in, Kim decided in September 2013 to become a published author. Her first debut novel is "DISCOVERED" which will be a part of "The Cover Series," debuted on December 28th 2013.
When she is not writing, she enjoys hanging out with her friends and family and reading. Her favorite books are always romance based with a healthy dose of erotica. ♥
