Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from my debut, TAKING CHANCES.
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 and cover are below. In Previous Weeks: Jake and Lydia entered the room where they’ll be working together and both have been fighting their desire. LAST WEEK: Jake took a cold shower in Keller’s office. Well, it started cold. THIS WEEK: Jake returns to the conference room to find Lydia eating the lunch Keller ordered for them.
Keller was trying to kill him.
Her tongue escaped her mouth to smother her finger in quick caresses. Wet fingers could do a lot of naughty things, and his mind wanted to think of them all. They had a lot of work to do this afternoon, and his thoughts needed to stay on the task in front of them. Why did she have to keep licking her fingers like that? He’d never been so envious of a finger. He crept closer to her and her wicked tongue.
Will Jake’s envy lead him to taking a chance with Lydia? <~ You can <tweet that> if you want. I can tell you it leads one of them to take a chance. Come back next week and you’ll find out.

5 Star Review: “Taking Chances, is a must read for anyone who wants a great story, well written, smoking hot smexy scenes and an oh so hot hero.”
5 Star Review: ”Taking Chances is SJ Maylee’s debut novel and she does an excellent job of creating interesting characters searching for connection while providing enough kink and spice to heat things up.”
5 Star Review: “it’s well written, there’s no slw moments and it’s packed full of hot sexual tension”
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 loveable 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 has 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. But together they can 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 love.
I’m holding a GIVEAWAY through the end of September to celebrate my debut.

Hot book! I enjoyed it. Love office romance stories.
Thank you, Cara. I enjoy them as well and I’m writing more of them too. 🙂
Oh, man! Makes me wonder if she’s realizing what she’s doing to him or just enjoying the barbecue. Either way, I think Jake’s in trouble. 🙂
She may not yet, but she’s going figure it out and make a move of her own pretty soon. 😉
“Envious of a finger” – love it!
Thanks, Kate. 😀
I can almost see him stalking forward, eyes on the fingers…maybe she’s hoping he’ll pounce?
OMG, she would love that. 🙂
Who knew licking barbecue off one’s fingers could be so sexy? I’ve seen my husband lick the barbecue off his fingers many times and never had that reaction. Hmmm…
Lol, Denise. You know, I probably should take another look at my husband doing this too. Hmm. I think I just changed my dinner plans. 😉
What a delicious scene in more ways than one. God, that poor man.He may need to hop back in the shower again!
Ha! You’re so right, but then he’d miss what Lydia does next. 🙂
This story is so amusing inagoodway. Not too much work getting done on this big business project-thingie but everyone certainly is getting hot and bothered. My day job is not nearly so exciting. Great 8!
I seem to be skipping over all the parts where they’re getting work done. I have no idea why I’m doing that, lol. 😉 Thanks, Veronica.
Men are so easily led. LOL. Wonder what she thinks when she catches him staring.
You’ll get an idea next week. It’s so good. I can’t wait to share. 🙂
Another luscious use of the eights! Well done.
I think the poor guy is going to need another cold shower. Another great 8!
This barbecue sounds like nice food.
Sensual 8, great job!
Mmmm… barbecue. There might be another shower needed — barbecue is messy.
(I was just expecting her to have a banana…)
Very sexy little snippet. Well done.
lol Cute snippet. Nice job!
Sensual and hot snippet. From reading the blurb, this seems like an interesting story. I especially like Lydia’s backstory.
Look like they’re gonna have to get busy just so they can cool off enough to get busy working. 😉
Haha! Barbecue! Wonder if all that finger-licking is intentional. These two really steam up my screen…
If even barbecue is too much for him, he’s done for. He might as well make a move… imagine how he’ll feel if she figures out his interest and starts flirting for real!
I’m enjoying the affect she is having on him! Sexy snippet!
I love the way his mind works. This is a wonderful 8 and a very sexy snippet. Thanks for sharing.
Gives new meaning to when my love says barbeque ribs tonight? Nifty eight with possiblities. Don’t tell momma.
Tantalizingly delicious! Loved the snippet. 🙂
I like it! Wonderful, SJ. It’s visual, and it’s fun! lol. I love his fixation on her fingers!! Good 8!
LOL Poor bloke. Tortured and those fingers are not even touching him. I love it!
