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 WEEKFears and instincts were pushed aside. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped a whole bunch. Such good stuff I’ve skipped. Sorry about that, but I’ve gotten them out of work and they’ve made their way to Lydia’s apartment. They both have one thing on their mind. Let’s see if you can figure out what that is. This snippet is in Jake’s POV.

She reached behind to grab hold of the bra clasp and released its hold. The sight of her arms pulled behind her back took him by surprise. He knew it was coming, but was fully unprepared for the reality. Her thriving body would be exquisite in restraints. He wondered if she had ever had the pleasure.

The groan that escaped his lips was part in yearning for her and part in horror at the thought of another touching what he wanted as his. He locked away thoughts that pulled him from what was right in front of him.

He busied his hands with the buttons on his shirt and tossed the confining thing.

Lydia and Jake are both getting ready for … <~ 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 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.

  1. Oh, my…there’ll be no stopping them now…love this scene and l like seeimg Jake’s POV. l just finished Sy and Darlene’s love scene last night after changing from his POVto hers. ln their case, it worked better in hers, but Jake’s POV works for me here.

  2. Like the detail of her bra clasp–both for the thoughts it gives him (and he’s really going to have to voice them eventually) and for the realism. So many books just have the clothes coming off, without any attention how that works.
