Get ready to find your next book boyfriend…

Welcome to the ehome of S.J. Maylee. I’m so glad you stopped by. 🙂 I’m sharing with you my love for Jake Reed from TAKING CHANCES, the first in my Love Projects Series. He’s the kind of man who knows what he wants and vanilla is not it.

When Lydia caught his attention, he was conflicted. He sensed the submissive within her and he wanted to set her free, but they weren’t in the safe arena of his BDSM club of choice, Club Voyage. They were at work.

The simplest things Lydia did pulled his attention away from their project. Just before lunch on their first day working together, she reached forward to the monitor. His gaze landed on the slope of her neck. Here’s a look into his thoughts…

Jake 2 new

Lucky for us, the road to realization is paved with all kinds of sexual tension. Jake does take a giant chance in this story and it brought Lydia’s fantasies to life. Once she had a taste of Jake and his dominating hand, she was eager for more, but they still needed to complete their project at work…

Jake 4 new

Oh yes, they sizzle and burn as their love grows. However, once this pair opened themselves to each other, they exposed their wounds…

Jake 3 new

It’s that need in him that drives Lydia’s passion higher than she’s ever known. I loved writing these two. Jake held my hand throughout their story and I fell in love with him right along with Lydia.

I’m not sharing how their story ends though. You’ll have to read TAKING CHANCES to find out if Lydia gets to keep her one and only.

Jake Reed is one hot hero. He’s a sexy dominating man that knows how to make your fantasies come to life. He’s also worth losing your heart to. I hope you’ll love him as much as I do.

Review from BDSM Book ReviewStory Rating: 5 out of 5 paddles & Sting Factor (kink): 5 out of 5 “S.J. Maylee’s story is one of beauty and well researched or perhaps well experienced. The journey that is embarked upon is gently done instead of pushed. Though a short story, this is well developed and the BDSM scenes are well written. It is not often that a short story can convey the beauty that a Dominant and submissive relationship can have.”

91301-5starReview from Romancing the Book: “The chemistry between Jake and Lydia is blistering. The sex scenes were scorching.”

Valentine’s Day Gift Hop! with UNTANGLE ME by S.J. Maylee

<<Click here for the Love Scene Blog Hop!>>

Click to visit the main ValentinesDayGiftHop pageWelcome to the Valentine’s Day Gift Hop where we’ll celebrate love, sex, and all things books! There are 178 authors and bloggers listed below. Lots of chances to enter to win our grand prizes of a Kindle Paperwhite or digital new adult romance basket. Every comment on every blog in the hop will count as an entry toward either of the grand prizes.

I LOVE putting romance in my books. I also put my characters through a good bit of sexual tension, conflict, and a heap of kink, but giving them their happy ending is definitely my sweet spot. The moment when you feel the characters heart expanding and realizing they cannot live without that other person. Yum!

BloghopPrizesRomance in real life shouldn’t come just once a year. I indulge on a regular basis. My hubs and I still enjoy date nights and his simple notes, hugs, and smooches still light my fire. Aw. I’m a lucky girl. I definitely appreciate everything he does for me.

I also appreciate each and every one of you that found the time to visit me today. Thank you!! I’m a new author. My debut TAKING CHANCES released last August and UNTANGLE ME released in December. I hope to have my third book out in the next couple of months.

Below you’ll find the blurb for UNTANGLE ME, my newest release. Plus, a little excerpt and my Giveaway. I hope you enjoy and have tons of fun on the hop.

BLURB:

Ivy’s revenge on the people behind her family’s downward spiral is simple and it’s working. There’s no need to long for help from the wealthy business owners who turned their backs on her father. Ivy may be wornuntangleme 300out, but she’s finding herself again after joining the local BDSM club.

Seth has it all. He has homes around the world and the little red speedster he dreamed of as a little boy, but none of the things he can buy satisfy him, not the socialites hanging on his arm or the submissives falling at his feet. Then, he hires Ivy to plan his next event.

Seth and Ivy enjoy each other’s company in and out of the planning stages for Seth’s charity event. Their playful bets lead them to a first date. When their secret kinks are revealed, the pair fall deep, but it’s not meant to last. Past hurts come back to haunt Ivy. Now, it’s time for Seth to use all he’s learned, regardless if he can win back the girl.

EXCERPT:

Where was Seth?

Once in the center of the dance floor she turned in a circle, looking every direction.

There.

From the center seat at the bar, Seth’s direct stare held her captive. A new song excited the crowd and cheers surrounded them, but neither of them paid it any attention.

His jacket and tie were gone, giving her a closer look at his all-male body. The top button on his white shirt was undone. She wanted to undo the rest and get a glimpse at what lay underneath. Round shoulders tapered to his waist. She bit her lip as she imagined his length.

He made no move to come to her, his elbow still rested on the bar. He was a man waiting for the world to come to him.

Not the world. Her.

The comfortable confidence and the heat shining in his eyes turned her on. She swayed her hips to the hypnotic beat. Her hands felt their way up her thighs, around her hips, and an inch past her waist, he got up and walked towards her.

In no time, his feet stepped in between hers and together they rocked to the music. The drums and base from the band pushed a rhythm into her body, driving her desire. Their fingers interlaced. She snuggled closer and breathed in his clean musky scent.

She wanted to touch him, but he kept a hold on her hands. He pushed them both behind her, causing her back to arch and her breasts to press deliciously into his hard body. Heat rolled through her. She let her head fall back, exposing her neck.

His lips brushed across her collarbone. They continued to rock back and forth, their hips swaying and rubbing together. He took her wrists in one hand and his other stroked down her neck, over her shoulder, caressed the side of her breast, and around her waist to land on her butt. He squeezed her ass and pressed her into the hard ridge of his cock. She lowered her chin and moaned as she took in his expression filled with raw desire. A slow devilish smile lit his features and sent a tremble through her.

The song ended and another began while they continued their dance. He let go of her hands and she wrapped them around his neck. Both of his hands molded her ass. She nuzzled his neck, taking a nibble and a few kisses as she breathed him in. She wanted more.

Lots more.

She made her way closer to his mouth. Before she stole a kiss, she looked into his eyes. His brown eyes had darkened to the color of night, matching his hair. She sucked on her lower lip.

“You know what you’re doing, right?” he asked.

“I know I want you.”

“The Masters work the back rooms on club nights. But we can stay on the dance floor all night, if you want.”

“You’re talking about the one on one rooms?” She sucked in a breath.

“I don’t think this crowd is prepared to see what I want to do to you.”

“Can we go back there? I want to go back there.” She looked directly into his eyes.

Love Scene Blog Hop! with an extra from TAKING CHANCES

Click to see the main blog hop page at the Evernight blogHello! Welcome to Evernight’s Love Scene Blog Hop. You’ll find a love scene at each stop in the hop. There are prizes to win too.

I’m in the middle of finishing the second book in my LOVE PROJECTS series and my thoughts often drift to the couple from the first in the series, Lydia and Jake from TAKING CHANCES. The following scene came to me and I hope you enjoy it. I sure had fun writing it. You’ll have to check out the second in the series once it’s published to learn what Lydia has to say to her girlfriends about what happened in this sexy Love Scene. So much fun. Enjoy.

LOVE SCENE:

Lydia removed all her clothes and stepped into the lukewarm shower. She hadn’t second guessed her decision to get a tattoo until her toe touched the not hot enough water, but she’d always wanted ink and she wanted nothing more than to show off her commitment to the Dom she loved.

After carefully removing the wet bandage, she cleaned the area. The tattoo artist better be right about the cold water because she felt like a cat who was asking for a rocking chair to smoosh its tail. She angled her body as far out of the spray as possible and turned up the cold water.

She counted faster than she should have and turned off the shower. “Shit. That was stupid.” She slammed the shower door back and reached for her towel, but it wasn’t there.

“I agree. That was stupid.”

“Jake!” She pressed her hand over her heart, thankfully covering the tattoo. “When did you come in?” She didn’t ask for the towel, knowing he wouldn’t release it from his clenched fists.

“Why the cold shower?” He stepped closer and reached for her hand.

Instinctively she reached for him.

“What did you do?” He helped her out of the show and then stopped her forward movement. After throwing the towel on the counter, he got down on one knee and caressed the skin around her new permanent mark.

“Surprise. Do you like it?” She trembled from his touch and the goose bumps covering her skin.

“It’s sexy.” He kissed her breast gently and looked up into her eyes. “I love it and I love you.”

She pressed her palm to his cheek. “I love you.”

He reached for the towel, pressed it over her ink, and then picked her up and carried her to the center of their bed. She reached for the towel, but he threw it across the room.

“Naughty girls who do things to their bodies without their Doms approval don’t get the luxury of warm towels.” He crawled between her legs and kissed a trail from her navel to her left breast. “Your work here is done. I’m taking charge of your heat. Now, be a good pet and reach for the head board and hang on.”

Once she grabbed the rungs of the headboard, she gasped as he took her nipple into his mouth. The sweet pull of his greedy mouth sent warmth in a direct path to her pussy and out over her needy body. He pushed her breast up and flicked her nipple with his tongue. She looked down and found his gaze trained on her. The passion and love returning to her opened her heart and her legs.

“My mind is filling with all kinds of punishments for you.” He traced a circle around the new tattoo and then around her nipple, but all I can think about right now is getting my cock deep inside you.”

“Oh yes, please. Please, fuck me, Sir.”

A smile spread wide across his face. “You’ve gotten a hell of a lot better at telling me what you want. I’ll have to reward that behavior.” He crawled up the bed and hovered over her. “You know, I don’t think it’s good to cover a new tattoo.” He nibbled on her ear lobe. “You’ll have to stay in the nude all weekend.”

“All weekend.” A shiver rolled through her, but heat followed when a long list of wicked things entered her thoughts.

“It’s the gift that keeps on giving.” The tip of his cock teased at her entrance. “Are you ready my love?”

“I’m always ready for you, Sir.” She pulled at the headboard and sucked in a breath as he filled her.

“You were ready for me. You’re so hot and wet.” He pulled out and pushed right back in. The bed rocked under them as he worked into a fierce rhythm.

“Reach for that orgasm now my love, because it’s the last one you’ll be getting for a while.”

“What! Oh.” She pulled her knees back and he thrust his hard cock into her again. He’d been pushing her farther and farther lately. She wondered how far she’d fly this weekend once he finally let her orgasm break free. His cock stroked her sweet spot. Thankfully, she didn’t have to worry about holding back right now. “It’s coming.”

He angled her hips and pushed in as her orgasm spread in bright pulses all over her body. His strokes became slower, but stronger and in no time he was grunting his pleasure and she rolled right into another round of tingling bliss.

She wrapped her arms around his neck and pulled him down. He pushed his tongue into her mouth and claimed her all over again.

When he pulled from her body, they snuggled into a tight embrace. Warm comfort surrounded them and left her wondering what chance she would take next for the man who had captured her body and soul.

_______________________________

I hope you enjoyed that. Lydia and Jake are two of my favorite characters ever. Their story is a powerful one of trust and learning to take chances for love. Below you’ll find more information about this sexy story.

BLURB:

takingchances1mLydia’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 deserves 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. Together they 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 loved.

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”

Flash Fiction #53 – Stay

Thanks for stopping. Another picture…another 100 words.

January 3, 2014

All week Shelly had draped her body over the cushioned stage and each day she’d hoped to catch the eye of one painter, but each day ended the same. No conversation, just breathtaking art with her as the subject.

Today, she took a risk and wore the dress with the ridiculously sexy neckline. Her breasts threatened to spill out. She didn’t care.

Marco’s gaze caught hers and for a minute she kept him with her. When his brush started again, a tingle danced along her cleavage, as if his brush stroked her flesh.

“Everyone out.” Marco pointed to her. “Stay.”

Flash Fiction #52 – and the Christmas Blog Hop

Thanks for stopping. Another picture…another 100 words.

Plus, we’re not just flashing today. A bunch of us are celebrating the season with a Christmas Blog Hop starting today through December 16th.

December 8, 2013

“Is there anyone in here? Call out.”

She’d yet to gather all her memories and she’d be damned if she’d call out before she was ready.

The door behind her cracked and split in two. She turned to her bag and shoved in the picture of her parents.

“The fire’s coming. Let’s go.”

“Not yet.” This fucking world had taken enough from her. “Just one more picture, please.”

He hauled her over his shoulder and tipped her world over. “It’s not worth losing you.”

She wiggled and swung her bag at him.

He slapped her ass. “Enough, I’ve got you.”

The experience from the start has been quite rewarding. The warm welcome started right away. The authors at this publishing home of mine are incredible. They’re a silly bunch and very helpful. You have a question, someone will have an answer.

I was so nervous to work with my editor. Goofy me. She was awesome, so supportive, and I’m incredibly proud of the final touches she helped me make. I can’t wait to work with her again. I mentioned her in my dedication too.

Excerpt:

“Come on in, Lydia. I want to talk about a few things before we get started today. We need to make it quick, since we need to report to Keller at ten this morning.” When she remained in her spot he added, “Lydia, come here.”

Not wanting Gina to take anything further from her, she lifted her head and walked to Jake. She stopped at his desk, but felt instantly unworthy. Gina was more Jake’s style. She fought the need to lower her chin.

“Look at me, Lydia.”

He pushed her. “Why?” She shifted her gaze and hit him with her direct stare.

“Thank you. I needed to see your eyes.” He reached out and swiped a lock of hair from her face. He tucked the strand behind her ear, and let his finger drag down her face to her shoulder. All the while his gaze captured hers, not letting go. “How are you this morning?”

“I’m okay.”

“Okay? Hmm, maybe I should do something to improve your mood? What would you say to that?”

“Here?” she gasped and quickly turned to look out the door.

He grabbed hold of her shoulders, lifting her slightly off the floor.

“Yes, here.” He brought their bodies together, claimed her lips and swept his tongue through her mouth, awakening her sexual hunger.

She felt wanted. She felt claimed. Images from the night before swam in her mind. Silly challenges from the office mean girl were all forgotten. He set her down and nipped at her lower lip.

“We have a lot to do today. Unfortunately we cannot go any further, now.” He stepped back behind his desk as casually as if he’d just greeted the mail man.

“But you would want to?” Still looking at the papers on his desk, she didn’t think he heard her. She took a step closer. “You would repeat last night?”

Her words stopped him. His gaze searched her face. Placing his hands on the desk he leaned forward and said, “Lydia, I fully intend to further explore your body and mind. After all, there are a few places I haven’t yet completely inspected.”

Her mind ran through what he had done to her last night, and there was only one place she could think of. Warmth fluttered through her face.

“Now, that is a beautiful sight.” He returned to his papers. “I’m going to have to keep thinking of ways to shock you simply to see you blush again.” With the papers properly sorted, his attention returned to her. “Is Gina a problem?”

Gina was a lot of things, but she’d never thought of her as a problem. “I don’t think so.”

“Don’t be afraid to put her in her place. She likes that more than she lets on. She’s the type to push so she can be pushed back.”

“I hadn’t thought of her that way. Interesting.”

“Let me know if she becomes a problem.” His gaze drilled into hers, not letting her escape.

“Okay.”

“Okay?” His posture remained controlled, but the smirk couldn’t be missed.

She added her own version of the devilish grin, which ignited another blush before she even spoke. “Okay, Sir.”

“Trouble.” He stalked towards her and ruthlessly swept his hand under the hem of her skirt to press firmly along her panties. His lips pressed to her ear. “Hot and damp.”

The palm of his hand pressed on her clit, and he bent his knuckles, sending the tips of his fingers past the edge of her panties to drag along her slit.

“Be careful what you say to me, sweetheart, or you’ll shatter my control.” With one last drag of his fingers, he pulled away and walked from the room.

She turned around and watched him go. Her heart pounded. All she could do was follow him, but she couldn’t move. The exchange with Jake left her bones unsettled, and the all too familiar ache tried to set-up shop in her chest. She hadn’t expected him to crave more from her, and now she couldn’t deny he did. Was she going to deny herself the pleasure of getting to know him?

Ella’s Turning What? Blog Party

Welcome to Ella’s turning what? blog party hop. I’m going to share some fun memories and talk a bit about my upcoming first EVER book birthday.

click this graphic to jump to list of hop participants

Ella and I are actually the same age which gives me another reason to celebrate. I adore Ella and her books. My birthday celebrations have changed over the years, have yours? pink cakeI went from parties with the girlfriends, to a night with the boyfriend, then date night with the hubby. This year, my besties and I made it an event to remember. They showed up on my doorstep (a two-hour drive for them) on my birthday and took me out for margaritas, such good times. A couple months later, we spent a night away that included margaritatreatments at the spa, shopping, and a bunch of girl talk over coffee. Finally, back in June we went out, like we did back when we were youngins. We had so much fun. Those girls got me before I did anything with my life and they still get me. I love it. Although I enjoy spending the day with my hubby, I loved spending it with my two best girlfriends.

I’m sure it won’t surprise you that my two besties are both mentioned in the dedication to my debut coming out very soon. I cannot wait to see the cover. For now, I have this adorable promise.

It is coming! 😀

In addition, every blog in the hop has their own prizes. Once you have fun here, there are over 100 other places to hop. The more places you comment, the more chances you’ll have to win.
