Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from my debut, TAKING CHANCES.
In Previous Weeks: Jake and Lydia entered the room where they’ll be working together. They’ve shared a few heated moments. LAST WEEK: Fears and instincts were messing with Jake’s hands off plan. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped a bit again. Jake’s decided to push Lydia a little and see how she reacts. Jake cornered her with a question and Lydia has acquiesced, but let’s see what else happens.
She searched his expression. It seemed to be saying more. She bit her lower lip and held her breath in an attempt to hold onto the shared moment. “Is there anything else, Jake?”
And there it was again, his eyes darkening into deep erotic pools of promise. She wanted to watch him for the rest of eternity. Heat rolled off his body, seeped into her, and pulled her closer. His hand, still under her chin, snaked around to cup her nape locking her in place.
Lydia’s ready and waiting <~ You can <tweet that> if you want. Come back next week and find out more OR find those buy links below and find out today. 🙂

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 love sexual tension too, Nancy and these two sure know how to build it. 🙂
I just love the “deep erotic pools of promise” And I read past this part this last night, so I know happens next. 🙂 But I won’t tell. 🙂
Oh! So, you know that he and then she, lol. I hope you’re enjoying it. 🙂
Yup 😉 and Yup 🙂
NIce. Very sensual. I love the heat rolling off of his body and seeping into hers.
Great sexual tension. I really liked: “his eyes darkening into deep erotic pools of promise.” Very nice!
I love it, especially the shared heat…so sensual. Terrific snippet!
Wow, I have a feeling not much work will get done. Hopefully they have more time than a 15 minute break!
Beautiful snippet, especially this line ‘She wanted to watch him for the rest of eternity.’
Very sensual! Nice job.
Whew! I feel that heat. I purchased this one and can’t wait to dig in soon. 🙂
Oh, I’d say there’s much more. Tantalizing scene. I could feel the sexual tension.
Lovely tension. Nice snippet! 🙂
Great imagery and sexual tension.
You really hooked me with “deep erotic pools of promise.”. Hot stuff! 🙂
Back and forth, taking a chance and then retreating… these two need to get it together and just admit they want each other! 😛
Very tender moment!
Darn it—why aren’t these snippets just two sentences longer? 😀
I hope he makes a definitive move now—she may not believe anything less!
