Stop by on the 17th of January for an interview with Jodi Ellen Malpas where she’ll be giving away 2 copies of Beneath This Man!
This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas is definitely one of my favorite books of the year and i’ve included it in the “What to read after Fifty Shades” list. I’ve been meaning to review it but I read it some time back and so I might never get to reviewing it. If you haven’t read it, please do! It ended on a cliffhanger and the author has released a teaser for the next book in the series: Beneath This Man. (To be released January 18, 2013)
Subject to minor editing.
As DEMANDED…A Jesse teaser…ENJOY xxx
I quickly jump in the shower, eager to ready myself for the evening ahead. I’m careful not to wet my hair as I frantically wash the day away and not so frantically shave, before removing myself from the enclosure and reaching up to grab a towel.
I turn, slamming straight into a familiar, solid and very naked chest.
‘Surprised to see me?’ His voice is low and threatening.
I slowly lift my gaze to his and find hooded, dark green eyes and a deadly serious expression. Dominant Jesse has arrived, and he has completely screwed my plans up.
‘A little.’ I admit.
‘Thought so. We have a small issue to resolve and we’re going to do it now.’
I stand frozen in place, dripping wet and clutching the towel. I’m completely and utterly gutted that he has caught me like this, but my disappointment doesn’t prevent the stab of pleasure that has just shot from deep in my stomach, straight into my groin. His menacing, lean frame towering all over me, accompanied by his heavy breathing, tells me I’m in no position to protest. But I just can’t help myself.
‘What if I say no?’ I whisper. There is not a chance in Hell I could ever say no to him. I’m totally calling his bluff, and he probably knows it.
‘You won’t.’ His self-assured tone pumps the blood faster through my veins.
‘I might.’ I so won’t and my small voice confirms this.
He pushes himself into me, the warm, slippery head of his erection probing at my lower stomach, prompting a small gasp of air to escape my mouth. His eyes burn with dark promise as I wait for him to make his move, anticipation having the muscles at my core convulsing.
‘Let’s not play games, Ava. We both know you’ll never say no to me.’ His fingertip trails the length of my wet arm, across my shoulder and up my neck until it reaches the hollow void under my ear. I close my eyes. He’s got me again.
