If women tell you they don’t like power, they’re fucking lying. They do like it, and do you know how I

know this? They’ve all become a little too obsessed with books and movies that make masochistic males

out to be the good guys. So as I tell you my side of the story, remember, I’m the good guy. Well, at the

very least, I’m good-looking.

People say I’m arrogant and rude, which is laughable when that is what has drawn them to me in the

first place. I would prefer to think of myself as a confident, self-assured man who knows what he wants.

And I most definitely knew what I wanted when it came to Evie.

That girl wasn’t like the others, which is probably why I took the whole game to another level and had to

put a ring on her finger. I wanted her as my property. She needed to be mine to do what I wanted with;

mine to control. She was a challenge. Even now I can see it in her eyes as she’s gagging on my cock. Now

don’t go and get all soft on me. You think she really doesn’t want this? Bullshit. She’s a great actress,

the theatrics all being part of the game. It makes it more exciting for me and her if she puts up a little


Do you know what I like best about Evie? Her mouth. She’s got these luscious lips that are full and

plump. I’m preferable to her painting them with a red glossy lipstick because it gets me off to see the

bright stain around my cock as she gives me head. Like the clothes she wears and the way she acts, I

control everything down to her make-up. I have her wear the kind of make-up that I’m preferable to.

Don’t judge. I told you, I like control.

It’s been a long day. I’ve had conferences with clients and dinner with business partners. We’ve only

just returned to our apartment in the city but my night is far from over. There will always be more work,

it’s the nature of the beast. I didn’t get to being CEO of my own company by slacking off. Labouring jobs

are for losers. Sure, I had a privileged upbringing and was born with the proverbial silver spoon in my

mouth, but I still believe in good work ethics. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and if I want to continue on my

path of wealth and success then I’m damn well going to put my work before absolutely everything.

First things first, though. Despite the lateness of the evening, I wanted a little release. I wanted those

red lips on my cock, sucking me until my balls cease to ache with lust. I’m not going to stop until I’ve

squirted my seed into her throat and made her swallow the whole damn lot.

Nights like these, I prefer to sit in my leather chair that faces out of the panorama glass windows that

afford views over the Brisbane River. The lights of the Story Bridge twinkle back at me and the water

looks dark, murky and mysterious under the night sky. I bought this apartment as a wedding gift for Evie,

but for the most part I don’t think she likes it. Ungrateful springs to mind, although it could just be the

company. I’m seriously laughing as I tell you that, because to be honest, I don’t give a fuck whether she

likes me or not. She’s mine and that’s all that matters.

While downing my fifth scotch for the evening, I beckon her to me. She says nothing, but she knows

what I want. Forget the elephant in the room; it’s a bit hard to hide my bulging erection that I’ve freed

from my pants. Most people would be worried about getting their four hundred dollar trousers dirty.

Not me. That kind of money is pocket change in my world. Despite her eagerness to oblige me, there is

a reason behind her willing to please. I mean come on, if you haven’t figured it out already you’re not as

smart as I thought you were. Okay, I’ll spell it out for you any way. I get a little rough. Not all the time,

but if you don’t give me what I want, well, let’s just say there are consequences.

‘On your knees’. There was no need for the command, but fuck, I’ve got to say I like the sound of my

own voice. It’s rich, deep, commanding and powerful. It speaks of a man who has always gotten what

he wants. Evie is no exception. I wanted her then and I want her now. She obliges me by sliding to her

knees, her silk stockings making it slippery on the tiles for her. She grabs my knees to steady herself

before leaning forward to take me in her mouth, all the while not making eye contact with me. I let her

get away with it for the minute, but my patience has limits.

Her mouth is hot and wet. It is utter delight as her lips start to move back and forth over my shaft,

messily leaving behind her lipstick as she does. As she goes to work on me, I down the last of my drink

before taking her carefully done braid in my grasp. Evie is definitely in my league as far as looks go. She’s

got long, blonde hair that has never seen the inside of a salon. All the streaks and highlights are from

time spent outdoors. Sometimes she likes to challenge me on my rule of her keeping it natural. I think

her opposing opinions are merely to rile me up so that I put her in her place. Yes, I do think she secretly

likes me smacking her arse. It may belittle her at the time but you can be rest assured it makes her think

twice before raising the subject again. I refuse to have my wife look like some fake, tarted-up bimbo. I

want her looking natural – well, except for the red lippy. The red lipstick stays.

I’m not going to give it up easily. I’m going to make her work for it. Hell, I even zone out for a while,

taking in the city that is my playground. Living and working in a town that is fast becoming a place that

doesn’t sleep is like a drug. The more I immerse myself in it, the more I want to be king of this empire.

Slowly but surely I’m putting other companies out of business. Pretty soon I’m going to have everything I

ever dreamed of.

Evie is sucking greedily now. Not because she’s into it, because she’s not. Oh let’s be honest! She just

wants me to give it up so she can get the job over and done with. I know she doesn’t mind me fucking

her vanilla, but blowjobs have never been her thing. She tried to pull off me once just as I was about

to come. What a mistake. She’s never tried to pull that shit again, although she still gags, the reflex an

unbreakable trait. Like now, for example; even in the darkly lit living room I can see her eyes beginning

to water as my dick swells against the back of her throat. I’m sure she can taste my pre-come – the salty,

bitter fluid already affording her a taste of what’s to come.

I slide a little lower in my leather seat, thrusting just that little bit more inside of her mouth. She tries

to back off, although there’s no escape. Her braid that is wound tightly around my fist is tugged ever so

slightly, a reminder that I have control of her head. I’m close and she knows it. I can feel her reposition

my dick towards the back corner of her mouth where her molars are so she doesn’t have to taste my

semen on her taste buds. If I was any kind of man, which I am, I should be rather insulted by this – which

I am. And when I’m insulted, I’m not very forgiving.

When I come, I come hard. And no, it’s not aimed at the back of her mouth like she’d have liked. Pulling

her hair makes her wince and she loses some of the suction on my shaft, her lips making sucking and

slurping noises as she tries to reposition me back to where she’d like me. Unfortunately for her, she’s

too late. Her perfectly positioned tongue is only lapping at the eye of my cock when I blow in her mouth.

I’ve got to give her credit for her spunk because she does try to pull away. Unsuccessfully, I might add.

My grip on her hair forces her to remain right where she is. I keep her there until I’m licked clean.

Getting a blow job is not as good as fucking her pussy, but it sure comes a close second. I never give her

the satisfaction of pleasurable sounds coming from my mouth, though, because that would be giving her

the green light that she has in some way pleased me. And with the knowledge that she has pleased me

would give her power. Power I don’t want her to have.

There may, or may not be tears in her eyes tonight. They have no effect on me whatsoever. I dismiss

her to bathe before bed while I pour myself a refill of scotch. Twenty-two stories below, people are still

walking the boardwalk that runs along the river’s edge. Some are alone, others huddled together like

love birds. It’s a sentiment I’m not familiar with. My whole life is lived like a business transaction. I know

I like having Evie in my life and I know I like the status of being a married man. But love, well, it’s not for


In the beginning I know Evie foolishly thought that it could be that way between us. Like her parents,

she was lured into the deception I was selling. Trust me when I say, no one sells lies like I do. I showed

them what they wanted to see; revealed the parts of me and my life that would be desirable by a family

like theirs. Each and every one of them fell hook, line and sinker. It’s laughable, really, that one family

could be so gullible. I’m sure over the last three years they’ve all tried to think a way out of the Alex

Stratford contract, but all I can say is, ‘Over my dead body,’ or more likely, over theirs.

Release Day Excerpt - Crashed by K. Bromberg

I am racing to finish Fueled (Book #2).   I can't believe it took me this long to start this series.  K. Bromberg is seriously an amazing writer.  All of the early reviews for Crashed have been five stars...and I'm not surprised. Check out synopsis for each book in the series and an excerpt from Crashed.  

When life crashes down around us, how hard are we willing to fight for the one thing we can’t live without, each other?

Life is full of moments.

Big moments.

Little moments.

And none of them are inconsequential. Every single moment prepares you for that one instance that defines your life. You must overcome all your fears, confront the demons that chase you, and cleanse the
poison that clings to your soul or you risk the chance of losing everything. Mine started the minute Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet. She made me feel. Made me whole when all I thought I could ever be was incomplete. Became the lifeline I never knew I needed. Hell yes, she’s worth the fight…but how do you fight for someone you know you don’t deserve?
Love is full of ups and downs.

Heart stopping highs.

Soul shattering lows.

And none of them are insignificant.

Love is a racecourse of unexpected twists and turns that must be negotiated. You have to break down walls, learn to trust, and heal from your past in order to win. But sometimes it’s the expected that’s the hardest to hold on to.Colton has healed and completed me, stolen my heart, and made me realize our love’s
not predictable nor perfect—it’s bent. And bent’s okay. But when outside factors put
our relationship to the test, what lengths will I have to go to prove to him that he’s
worth the fight?

Whoever said love is patient and love is kind, never met the two of us. We know
our love is worth it—have acknowledged that we were meant to be—but when our
pasts crash into our future, will the repercussions make us stronger or break us

When she needs a break from the daily chaos of her life, you can most likely find her on the treadmill or with Kindle in hand, devouring the pages of a good, saucy book.Fueled is K.

Excerpt #1
And the only thing I can focus on—can grasp onto as my heart races and body
shakes with anger—is that I need a pit stop. I need to find Colton. I need to touch him, to
see him, to quiet the turmoil in my soul.
But I can’t.
He’s somewhere close, my rebellious rogue unable to let go of the damaged little
boy within. The man who has just started healing is now broken, and it kills me that I
won’t be able to fix him. That my murmured words of encouragement and patient nature
won’t be able to repair the immobile and unresponsive body that was loaded onto that
stretcher and rushed to somewhere within these walls—so close yet so very far away
from me. That he has to rely on strangers to mend and heal him now. Strangers that have
no idea of the invisible scar tissue that still lingers beneath the surface.
More hands reach out to touch and soothe me, Dorothea’s and Quinlan’s, but
they’re not the ones I want. They’re not Colton’s.
And then a terrifying thought hits me. Every time Colton is near, I can feel that
tingle—the buzz that tells me he’s just within reach—but I can’t feel anything. I know
he’s physically close, but his spark is nonexistent.

Blog Tour Promo Giveaway - The Prince of Punk Rock by Jenna Galicki

How crazy hot does The Prince of Punk Rock look?  Wait till you check out the synopsis.  I have a feeling this eBook is going to steam up my Kindle screen. Love that!  Giveaway & excerpt below.

Title: The Prince of Punk Rock (Radical Rock Stars #1)

Author: Jenna Galicki

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

Release Date: February 21, 2014

I love her, but I also love him.
It's our dirty little secret, and it’s about to blow our record deal sky high.
Tommy Blade, the Prince of Punk Rock, and this is our story.
Tommy Blade is a man with a secret. It’s a secret he only shares with one person,
Jessi Blade – and the men he surrenders to in the bedroom. Her only condition to
their tumultuous sex life is that these men are one night stands. But when Angel
Garcia enters his life, it’s like a match to gasoline.
Mega-talented punk rock singer Angel Garcia, with his smoldering ebony eyes,
tight leather pants and unstoppable stage presence, is a man who is use to getting
what he wants. He has his eyes set on Tommy Blade as his new lead guitarist, and
as his life partner.

Jessi Blade, sympathetic to her husband's bisexual needs, loves him enough to
share him, but she never counted on Angel Garcia to test the threshold of her
marriage. He makes her life hell . . . and heaven. He’s her damnation and her
salvation. She wants to hate him. She wants to despise him. But, his charm and
raw sex appeal are impossible to resist. Without warning, she finds herself falling
in love with her husband's gay lover.

At the height of it all, their punk rock band catapults to stardom.
Their lives are marred by secrecy, deception and sacrifice. Feelings of betrayal,
backlash from the sensationalistic media and threats of blackmail send them
down a hard road filled with tough decisions.
They aren't your ordinary rock stars. They're radical rock stars. And they have a
big story to tell.

She's everything to me.

He sets my world on fire.

The faces changed since the last time he was there, but the intention was still
the same. It wasn’t a place to socialize or partake in camaraderie or drop in for a
drink on your way home. It was a meeting place for men interested in casual sex.
The backroom served as a shanty for a quick encounter. You could stop in, get your
rocks off and be on your way in half an hour. It was a smorgasbord of testosterone,
a buffet of muscle and beefcake.
Men flocked around him as soon as he walked through the door. They always
did. A guy once told him that it was the mixture of his rugged jaw and strong upper
body, offset by the innocence of his big blue eyes that made him so attractive. The
ladies always said it was his long blond hair and the guitar.

Release Giveaway & Review of Rare and Precious Things by Raine Miller

Ethan Blackstone, a new iPad Mini, $50.00 in Amazon gift cards, signed paper back and ebooks? What more could a girl want...Wait there's more! Read an excerpt of Rare and Precious Things by Raine Miller. Check it all out and Happy Saturday!

(The Blackstone Affair Book 4)

The fourth part in the New York Times bestselling series, The Blackstone Affair: 
A bright beginning for two damaged souls fighting for their hard-won love, and the promise of a new hope to secure their happily ever after. Fresh from an idyllic honeymoon along the Italian coast, the Blackstones prepare for the birth of their precious baby and the challenges of settling into a new home. But things get complicated when specters from the past reappear to threaten the very foundation of
their relationship. Ethan and Brynne will have to fight harder than ever for each other.Rare and Precious Things is the story of two people who both need the other in order to be complete, but learn just how "rare" their brand of love is when they have to risk
everything in order to hold onto it.

Rare and Precious Things (The Blackstone Affair, #4)Rare and Precious Things by Raine Miller
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 Stars. ARC kindly provided by in exchange for a fair and honest review. Spoiler-free review. HEA.  No cliffhanger.

Rare & Precious Things is the final installment in The Blackstone series. Brynne and Ethan have been through so much drama. Their all-consuming love affair is still on the fast track – with a wedding and a baby on the way.  Brynne’s pregnancy hormones are off the charts and their relationship is steamy as ever (fanning self).   As a couple, they have been through so much in the short amount of time they have been together.   Their heart breaking pasts have created a myriad of emotional insecurities and issues for them.  In order to make things work they learn to lean on each other for emotional stability.  Ethan finally starts to open up about his painful past and embrace therapy. Brynne and Ethan end up creating their own sex filled therapeutic regimen as a coping mechanism.  Together they are getting stronger and breaking down the emotional barricades they put in place to survive. There are still a few road blocks on the way to getting their HEA…and that’s all I can say without giving the plot away :)

Ethan is dominating as ever with a never ending insatiable sexual appetite. There was a whole lot of loving going on. I lost count on how many times Brynne called Ethan “hot” and Ethan called Brynne “beauty.” Along with the heart filled sentiments, there is whole lot of explosive shenanigans going on– Ethan Blackstone style. Wow...he has a dirty sexy mouth!

Overall – I liked the way the story unraveled from dual POVs.  There was a whole lot of sex, sex and more sex (did I mention the sex?). The first 20% of the book dragged a little bit as I waited for something to happen (other than sex).  Don’t get me wrong… it was all kinds of crazy hot.  I think I was anticipating more a little more drama in the beginning from the way Eyes Wide Open ended.  Ethan Blackstone might be my favorite dirty-mouth dotting Book Boyfriend Book Dad. The ending of RAPT was a little predictable but still perfect. A must read for any Blackstone series fan.

This review appears on,, Goodreads, Amazon and Twitter.

Raine Miller has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara
Cartland book at the tender age of thirteen. And it's a safe bet she'll never stop, because
now she writes them too! Granted Raine's stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in
her grave, but to her way of thinking, a hot, sexy hero never goes out of fashion. A part-
time teacher and writer of sexy romance stories every other chance she gets pretty much
fills her days. She has a handsome prince of a husband, and two brilliant sons to pull her
back into the real world if the writing takes her too far away. Her sons know she likes to
write stories, but gratefully have never asked to read any, thank God! Raine loves to hear
from readers and to chat about the characters in her books.

I watched Brynne putting on her makeup and I couldn’t tear my eyes away. I hoped
she didn’t notice me staring because I didn’t want her feeling self-conscious. I knew she
was a little because her body had changed so much. She was more beautiful to me now
than ever though. Our little blueberry had grown right along with my girl.
“You’d better start getting ready or we’ll be late. Hannah and her plans wait for no
man…” she trailed off, never taking her concentration away from the mirror where she
was applying some kind of dark smudge around her eyes. She had on a short black lace
getup that made me hard just looking, but she was only halfway dressed. Best to stick
with the plan or we’d never make it to my Dad’s birthday dinner on time. I tried to force
in some non-arousing thoughts about work.
“I’d much rather look at you though, Mrs. Blackstone,” I told her.
