Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from my soon to be released debut, TAKING CHANCES. It’s releasing this Friday!!

Taking Chances is the first in a series of books I’m calling The Love Projects. Taking Chances is the story of Lydia and Jake. The blurb is below. Today, I’m sharing 8 from the first chapter. THIS WEEK: While Lydia waits to find out who Jake will select for his project, she gets lost in one of her fantasies starring the man himself. Keep in mind, Lydia’s sitting in a board room surrounded by her colleagues and Jake. We start in her fantasy.

Once he settled her bottom on the table, he stepped in between her thighs. As he devoured her mouth in eager kisses, he popped the buttons on her blouse, unclasped her bra, and exposed her. Powerful hands molded her breasts. She let her needy body fall to the table to give him access to every inch of her.


The fantasy was in full swing now. Jake shouted her name. Oh, her name sounded sinful on his lips.

Oh my, he’s not shouting her name from her fantasy, lol. 🙂 Wonder what she’ll say once she realizes Jake’s been watching her. Taking Chances is risky business. <~ You can <tweet that> if you want.

I’ll reveal my cover this week. On Friday, I’ll celebrate the release. I hope you’ll join me.

TAKING CHANCES unofficial blurb:

Lydia’s father walked away from her when she was eight. She’s struggled to not let him affect her, but fears she wasn’t lovable enough to make him stay. Jake wants to love one woman, but after scaring the last woman he met outside of the club, he doubts he deserves the right. She protects her heart by sticking with her fantasies and he lives by a set of rules that excludes women who choose a vanilla lifestyle.

The two will be kept in a conference room working together until their special project is complete. If Lydia and Jake hold tight to their bland lives, they’ll always yearn for love that is out of reach. Together they find common ground, passion, and a reason to take chances. Once they discover the grand possibilities of the love they desire, they find themselves in the very place they tried never to be again, facing unguaranteed loved.

  1. Oh I loved that! Love the affect of his saying just one word, her name, to try and get her attention. Great 8!
