Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing one more snippet from my debut, TAKING CHANCES.
In Previous Weeks: Jake and Lydia entered the room where they’ll be working together. They’ve shared several heated moments. LAST WEEK: The work day is over and they’ve made their way to Lydia’s place for, well, it was supposed to be dinner. Fears and instincts were pushed aside along with confining things like clothes. 😉 THIS WEEK: I only skipped a couple sentences.
He still stood several steps back. The need to run to her clawed at him. Normally he was a pretty patient person, but at this moment he wanted to scream with need. He forced his legs to take slow strides. The effort aided him in reining in his longing. He took one last step forward and pressed his body along hers.
“Lydia,” he growled. “How are you feeling?”
I’m guessing Lydia’s ready for whatever Jake has planned. <~ You can <tweet that> if you want. This might be my last WeWriWa post for TAKING CHANCES. So if you want to find out what happens next, 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’d love to know what’s running through her head as she sees him stride to her. Great snippet!
There is a lot going on in that head of hers and it’s about to get her in a little bit of trouble with this Dominant man. 😉
I don’t know about Lydia, but I’m feeling like I want another eight sentences (or more) right now! 😀
I’m with Sarah. I could totally use some more sentences right now!
All that self restraint, wow! I can’t wait to see what happens next and get Lydia’s POV, as others have said. Really enjoying this story, terrific snippet!
Wow! Poor Jake…l need more sentences, too…good thing your book is on mt TBR list which gets longer by the day.
I love that he was able to restrain himself as he walked toward her…but holy cow do I ant her to pounce!
Powerful snippet, I was with him every stride. Well done.
Is her reply something like…”Randy baby, really randy” : )
She’s probably feeling pretty good – to him….
Loved the heat between them, that he was as drawn to her as she was to him.
Whoa, there’s a storm about to break in that bedroom! Hope she’s ready for it! 😉
Powerful snippet. I want to read more.
Dang it, we missed a few sentences!
Can’t wait to hear her answer…
OK, now we’re getting some where. All work and no play… well you know what they say about that. You’ve been building this scene over several snippets with such anticipation for the characters as well as the reader. We’re dying here! Good for you driving us crazy. 🙂
