4 Stars of Sawyer!

Sawyer…I think this is my favorite story yet…Sawyer has so much charm and charisma plus a great sense of humor and a huge heart buried under uncertainty. Sawyer is not “boyfriend” material…he is a cursed man from a family full of infidelity. But Lilly, well Lilly was taboo, she was taken well now she’s not. What was flirty denial is now front and center lust.
Sawyer and Lilly both have issues. Lilly has secrets that threaten to destroy it all and Sawyer’s insecurity may just be the demise of something amazing. Plus certain truths come to light making Sawyer’s head spin and begins some bad decision making. 
From the beach in Belize to Canada these two ride the bumps of attraction, lust, and heartbreak.
I love Sawyer. His character is so much fun. Just the fun loving guy that always picks you up when your down and is a great friend when you need him. Jealousy is not a good look for him but it sure is funny!
“All I could picture was me spear-launching into the guy, followed by a pile driver or vertical suplex, anything to knock him out cold, my WWE title reclaimed. Because: mine, mine, mine.”
This has been my favorite book so far, they keep getting better. I can’t wait for Raven’s book! Sparks are gonna fly!


Some guys should come with a warning label…

 

Sawyer West is Mr. One-Night Stand. He doesn’t do relationships or promises or feelings. He’s never cared enough to get involved. Until Lily Roberts. She’s sweet and shy and sexy as sin, and resisting her is testing his self-control. She believes Sawyer can be a better man, and for the first time in his life, he wants to be. But change isn’t easy, and Sawyer would do anything to protect Lily from his past self. Even break his own heart…


EXCERPT


She holds up her new treasure. “Found a good one.” The blue stone in the center of the ring catches the light of a nearby lamp, the thick band decorated with filigree.

“Okay,” I say. “You first.”

She swallows and peeks at me from below her lashes. “There was this man.” Another swallow. “He was a soldier about to be shipped off to war.” She scrapes her teeth over her bottom lip. “He bought this ring but didn’t propose to his girl before he left. He was afraid. He didn’t think he’d do right by her. But he held on to it during every battle, and every horrible night. When he got home and realized he was being foolish”—she looks at me with glassy eyes—“the girl had fallen for someone else.”

Single Lily fights dirty.

My pulse kicks up a notch as I approach her. I stop a foot away and hold out my hand. “The ring, please.” 

Trembling slightly, she places it in my palm, her fingers grazing my skin.

“A man,” I say, turning the band over, “proposed to the girl of his dreams with this ring.” I step closer. “He worshipped her. I mean, she was hot as fuck”—eye roll numero cinco—“but they were meant to be, like real soul mates. Then the unthinkable happened.” I shift my feet until there’s barely an inch between us. 

Self-control at DEFCON 2.

“What happened?” she whispers.

I grin. “A car fell on her. Freak accident. Dropped from the second story of a parking garage. Nasty mess.” I grab her hand and place the ring on her finger as she mumbles something about my maturity. I knock her toe with mine. “Quiet. I’m not done.” Numero seis. I clear my throat. “Although the man loved his wife more than anything, he pawned the ring. He knew it was special. He hoped the next person to buy it could be as lucky in love as he was.”

That stops the eye rolls. 

She looks at the ring, then at me, then back and forth again. 

Her lips part. Her chest rises.

Sirens ring: DEFCON 1.

I’m a thrill seeker. Cliff jumping, fast cars, steep slopes—you name it, I love it. The adrenaline rush gives me Spidey-sense, and my pulse shoots from one hundred to 220 in ten seconds flat.

Leaning in to kiss Lily is like skydiving without a chute.

I don’t give her time to turn me down, not a moment for either of us to overthink. Heart in my throat, I taste her lips. Yep, strawberry. She’s soft and tentative, then eager, a whimper escaping when our tongues swipe. I grip her harder and walk until I have her pressed against a table. She tugs my hair. I grab her ass. The next whimper is louder, the sound shredding what’s left of my self-control. I need to hear what other sounds she makes, need to hear her fall apart. Will she chant my name or pray to her maker? Will she scream or groan? Our mouths move faster, hands greedier, my jeans barely containing me. If I don’t stop soon, we’ll be giving these antiques enough stories for another century. 

 

By the time I pull away, she’s swallowed my heart.
