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 takingchances1mlove 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.
