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 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.
