Mid Week Tease -She’s the One He Wants- A snippet from Far from Blind #NewRelease

click to see SJ's Mid Week TeasesWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the talented Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

Today, I’m teasing from 

Far from Blind, Club Blind 2

In this tease, Candy and Brad are meeting with Mistress Charlie. They’ve just arrived in Charlie’s kitchen. All Candy’s truths are about to be put on display. Oh boy.

Enjoy!


She didn’t see a future when she thought of Brad. She could practically predict how she’d disappoint him.

She took a step back and bumped into the island, knocking over a bowl of oranges.

“I’m so sorry.” She scrambled after the rolling fruit.

“That’s fine. Don’t worry about it. I’d planned on smooshing them on the juicer later.”

Candy crawled on her hands and knees after the last one. It whirled across the floor and bumped into Brad’s shoe.

He bent down and picked it up. Instead of giving it to her, he offered her his hand.

The image captured why she’d always known it would never work between them. He was the gentleman, perfect in every way. Here she was on the floor, picking up after the mess she couldn’t help but create. No matter how hard she worked to stand up straight, she continued to make a mess of things and Brad in all his perfectness only reminded her of that.

Tears filled her vision. For so long, he was all she could see, he was all she wanted. She still wanted him.

He helped her to stand and then he placed the orange on top of the basket she’d refilled, but he didn’t let go of her hand.

“See what I mean, Mistress.” He squeezed her hand. “She wakes up every room she’s in.” His deep blue eyes were trained directly on her. She felt like she was on stage, the center of attention. A weird sensation floated around her.

Candy Wilson has worked hard to build a life for herself from nothing to something she can be proud of but she can’t catch the eye of the one man who drives her wild with desire.

Brad Chambers has everything, always has, except the woman he loves. When a pitch black blind date at the exclusive Club Blind matches the pair together, Candy refuses to believe what she sees and throws up her protective barrier. It’s up to Brad to tear down her walls and get her to see the man who wants only her.

Mid Week Tease -Don’t Make Me Ask Twice- A snippet from Far from Blind #NewRelease

click to see SJ's Mid Week TeasesWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the lovely Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

Today, I’m teasing from 

Far from Blind, Club Blind 2

In this tease, Candy has to face the consequences of no showing on Brad. Eek! 🙂

Enjoy!


“I’ll give it to you straight. You don’t want a girl like me.” She blew out a breath as if it could help her raging pulse. Never in a million years would she have guessed she’d want a man to tell her she was wrong.

“Is that what you believe?”

“Yes.” She kept her focus on him. He gave nothing away. His expression didn’t change, only his fingers tapped on his desk which was irritatingly neat.

“Then we have a problem.” He stood. “We’d agreed to meet. I kept up my end.”

“And I didn’t.” She blew out a deep breath.

“Come here.”

She didn’t move. She didn’t take her next breath either.

He pointed to the ground in front of him. “Don’t make me ask twice.”

She jumped and then slipped around his desk. Damn, he really did smell good. No matter whether it was aftershave or him, the deep woodsy scent turned here on. Everything about Brad turned her on.

“Did I ask you to join me at Mistress Charlie’s yesterday?”

“Yes, but—”

“Do you believe I’m a liar?”

“No.”

“I don’t think you are either.” He tapped under her chin, lifting her focus back to him. “But I don’t believe you’re being honest with me right now and that’s a problem.”

“I’m sorry I didn’t show yesterday.”

“I appreciate the admission, but I can’t let the action and the attitude go unpunished.”

“What, are you going to spank me?” She chuckled.

“I think it’s time.” He tucked some of her hair behind her ear and his touch lingered along the side of her neck over her ugly mole. “Don’t you agree?”

“Agreed, Sir.” She leaned back on his desk. It was the only thing holding her up.

“Safeword?”

“Red.”

“Very good. Bend over my desk, please.”

“Right here?” She looked around his office. She didn’t find any windows to the hall, but his windows facing the next building were wide open. “You really are pissed.”

The corner of his lips lifted slightly. “The windows are treated. No one can see in here.”

“Oh.”

“You’re stalling.”

“Can you blame me?”

“You do know I’m an accountant, right?” He tugged on her hair. “We like to add.”

Mid Week Tease -The Polite Act- A snippet from Far from Blind #NewRelease

click to see SJ's Mid Week TeasesWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the amazing Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

Today, I’m teasing from 

Far from Blind, Club Blind 2

It’s now available!

In this tease, Candy is in the middle of messing everything up. Candy! 🙂

Enjoy!


“We could move our date to the main part of the club.”

“And how do you suppose that would go?” She may not know him well, but she could see a courteous shove off coming a mile away.

“We could get a drink at the bar or take a turn on the dance floor.”

“Right. You can stop with the polite act.”

“Okay. How about I take you to the spanking benches and crack a paddle over your ass until it’s bright red?”

“You wouldn’t dare.” She stood, pushing back her chair.

“Unfortunately, I don’t think you’re going to find out tonight.” He forced back his own chair, got up, and walked toward her, stopping once she had to arch her head back to look up at him. “I’m getting the sense tonight hasn’t turned out as you’d hoped.” The same cold expression she’d noticed early blanketed his expression. “I propose you take some time to think about what’s happening here, and I’ll schedule a session for us with Mistress Charlie.”

“Why bother?”

“Because, the night hasn’t turned out as I’d hoped.”

Far from Blind, Club Blind 2 by S.J. Maylee is here!

farfromblindI’ve wanted to tell this story for over two years. I’m over the moon excited to finally be telling Brad and Candy’s story. I met these two while writing Untangle Me, my 2nd release with Evernight. Far from Blind is my 9th release with them. Wow. These past two years have really flown by.

I’m also thrilled to be exploring new possibilities in Club Blind. Rob and Jane from In the Blind first explored this unexpected place exactly one year ago today. If you haven’t read their story yet, now is the perfect time. It’s currently .99 cents at Evernight!

I’m thrilled to share that my lovely editors have given Far from Blind the Editor’s Pick seal. Very cool. Needless to say, I’m quite proud of this story.

So, what’s different this time around? Let me just say, Blind Date Night. Oh yeah, the lights are still off but there has been some match making going on behind the scenes. Mistress Charlie will make a match for you too. She wanted me to extend this exclusive invitation. 😀

FFB Teaser - don't make me

Excerpt:

He closed the door behind them and the distinct click of a lock tumbling over echoed around the room. Maybe no showing yesterday was a mistake. If they’d had any chance at all, she’d blown it for sure. How could she expect him to trust her now? The air, thick with unsaid words, closed in around her.

It was time to take care of business and escape before she embarrassed herself. “This must be for you.” She held out the envelope.

“Thank you.” He took it from her and tore it open, revealing a piece of paper. His cheeks pulled into a little smile, then it disappeared. He maneuvered around his desk and sat. “Do you like me, Candy?”

“Of course I do.” She clasped her arms around her middle. The bigger question is what he thought of her before Club Blind and now.

“Then why didn’t you show last night?” He pressed his lips together and kept his gaze on her.

“To be honest…”

“That’s all I’ll ever expect from you.”

“I’ll give it to you straight. You don’t want a girl like me.” She blew out a breath as if it could help her raging pulse. Never in a million years would she have guessed she’d want a man to tell her she was wrong.

“Is that what you believe?”

“Yes.” She kept her focus on him. He gave nothing away. His expression didn’t change, only his fingers tapped on his desk which was irritatingly neat.

“Then we have a problem.” He stood. “We’d agreed to meet. I kept up my end.”

“And I didn’t.” She blew out a deep breath.

“Come here.”

She didn’t move. She didn’t take her next breath either.

Mid Week Tease -The Night … The Date- A snippet from Far From Blind #ComingSoon

click to see SJ's Mid Week TeasesWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the sweet Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

Today, I’m teasing from 

Far From Blind, Club Blind 2

It releases tomorrow. Woot! Did I mention it’s an Editor’s pick? It is! 😀

In this tease, Candy is at the beginning of her blind date at Club Blind. 🙂 This is the date that will change everything. The club escort has just walked her in to meet her date in the dark.

Enjoy!


“I’m going to put your hand in his.”

“Okay.”

He placed her hand in her date’s, which was bigger than her escort but quite possibly softer. Her match gave her hand a firm squeeze.

“The music will get louder in a few minutes but we’ll still be able to hear you if you need to use your safe word. The music will return to this level just before your time is up, then I’ll be back. A warning, you don’t have a ton of time for this phase. Enjoy, you two.”

“Thank you.” She’d said it before she thought about it. Thank you? What a strange response for where he’d left her. She looked up, not that she could see anything but imagined anyways. “Fancy meeting you here.” Her nervous laughter filled the room. She hung her head and knocked right into his solid chest. An intoxicating, crisp woodsy sent wrapped around her and centered her in the moment.

Seconds ticked by until his touch came under chin and pressed upward. He caressed her neck and right over the little mole she hated near her collar bone.

That’s it. She’d make the appointment on Monday to have her doctor check it out and the one under her ear too. No more waiting until she had the co-pay saved.

His touch dragged up her neck and grazed over the tiny brown bump near her earlobe before his grip wound around to the back of her neck. He held her still.

“So, this is pretty wild, huh?” She caressed his stomach and found a thin line of hair she wanted to explore. “I’ve been waiting for this night for a long time.”

“Shh.” His finger covered her lips. “I’ve been waiting for you too.” His lips covered hers soft and gentle, almost reverent. Over and over, little kisses soft like feather pillows grazed her lips. Each pass built on the last, pulling her in like the sun on the first warm day of the year. The tips of her robe-covered breasts brushed over his chest and her nipples tightened, sending a zing to her clit.

The tip of his tongue stroked over her bottom lip and everything changed. He dug both hands through her hair, tugged her back as he claimed her lips, and gave her no choice but to open her mouth to his searching tongue. She reached up and hung onto his neck, molding her body to his, giving in to his delicious invasion.

Mid Week Tease -The Sex Kitten Heel Test- A snippet from Far From Blind #ComingSoon

click to see SJ's Mid Week TeasesWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the amazing Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

Today, I’m teasing from Far From Blind, Club Blind 2 which releases next Thursday. Woot!

In this tease, Candice’s crush visits her work place. She’s convinced herself that he’s not interested. Let’s see what happens when she tests him. 🙂 Enjoy!


“Hello, Candice.” The man was perfection, nothing out of place. She adored his easy non overdone smile.

“Hi, Brad.” She attempted to fluff her hair, hoping it hadn’t already turned into a fuzzy mess.

He stopped at the corner of the counter at the front of her desk. The man knew how to dress, from the dark charcoal suit, vest, crisp white shirt, and the silvery blue tie to match his magical eyes. He was gorgeous.

“I’ll let Ivy and Mr. Marsh know you’re here.” After entering a code on her phone that would alert her boss to their visitor, she tapped her toes. It had been a long time since she’d tested his interest. Maybe her new sex kitten heels would do the trick.

“Thank you. Seth and I have a meeting to attend.”

She got up and sauntered over to the sideboard, turned her sugar bowl, and then shifted just enough to catch his reflection in the mirror. Her gaze locked onto his. His focus was on her and her alone. Awareness woke her whole body, from the damp heat coating her pussy to the intense need to walk to him and show off any one of the positions Mistress Charlie had her practicing, but she didn’t move. She waited.

He put his hands in his pockets. “You must be very busy these days.”

“Yes, we have three parties this week.” She took a deep breath.

“I’m sorry to be bothering you. I’m sure you’d like to get your work done.” His gaze remained on her.

The door opened behind her and she squeezed her eyes shut. “Damn,” she whispered.

Mid Week Tease -He Can Give Her What She Needs- A snippet from In the Blind, Club Blind Book 1

click to see SJ's Mid Week TeasesWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the talented Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

Today, I’m teasing from In the Blind because I’ve signed the contract for the 2nd book in my Club Blind Series. Woot!! 😀

For this tease, I’ve skipped forward again. Rob just finished his interview and they’re getting driven home which allows them to have this semi-private moment.  🙂 Enjoy!


“Thanks for bringing me here today.”

“You’re welcome. Thanks for giving it a chance.” She tugged at her blouse. “I’m pretty sure he’ll send an attractive offer. There will probably be only one thing in it we can change, but I’ll find it.”

“You’re a shark.”

“Hardly.”

“I admire that about you. You go after what you want, don’t you?”

“In my professional life, yes, I like to believe that’s true.” She’d taken lots of chances throughout her career. In business, she wasn’t afraid to take risks. She crossed her legs and angled herself towards him.

He shifted in his seat to face her directly. “What aren’t you going after in your personal life?”

“Pretty much everything.”

“What do you want?”

She turned to look out the window. He’d laid out the question she hadn’t pushed herself to answer. Her thoughts kept drifting to Saturday night and her mystery man. He’d made her fantasies come to life, but it was this man sitting next to her, the one who might not be totally ready, who made her heart flutter uncontrollably. The two together would be explosive. Which did she want? Which could she have?

“I want trust and friendship.”

“Is that all? I can give you that.”

She shifted in the seat and looked him right in the eye. “No, that’s not all.”

“Don’t play with me.”

“I’m not—”

He shifted towards her. His body got a few inches from her, and she pushed against his chest, her eyes clamped shut. Convincing herself he was still hung up on his ex made the possibility of getting hurt highly unlikely because, before he could hurt her, he would drift out of her life. But for now he was here, close, and pushing against her hand. She let her elbow bend, and he came closer. The rich manly scent of him drove her needs higher.

She wanted him with an urgency that caused her fingers to dig around the fabric of his shirt. Desire and nerves fought for her attention. Pushing him away would be safe. She had no desire for safety.

He tilted his head slightly, and she let him come a bit closer. His cheek brushed along hers. Questions swirled around in her mind, making her dizzy. She’d started falling for this man while they talked about changes in the job market and their favorite apps. Now, all she had to do was relax her arm a bit and he’d kiss her. She licked her lips and imagined his body pressed against hers.

She pulled him closer and removed the distance. His lips sealed over hers, and she was lost. This was what she craved, this surrender of need. When he pulled away, she opened her mouth and he took his claim.

Their tongues tangled back and forth. She breathed in his deep intoxicating scent. She needed him between her thighs. That sharp burst of need took over her common sense.

Mid Week Tease -She Called!- A snippet from In the Blind, Club Blind Book 1

click to see SJ's Mid Week TeasesWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the talented Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

Today, I’m teasing from In the Blind because I’ve signed the contract for the 2nd book in my Club Blind Series. Woot!! 😀

This tease is from the third chapter. If you’ve read Taking Over, Love Projects Book 3, you’ll know a lot more about Rob and why he got divorced. 🙂 Enjoy!


Rob’s day was turning around, a date with a pretty girl and possibly a new job, not bad for a Monday. No, it wasn’t a date, more like a business meeting. It didn’t mean he wasn’t going to enjoy the company.

His luck must still be running on high from the first fantastic weekend he’d had in months. After all the dates Mistress Charlie had sent him on, the only gal who’d stayed on his mind was the one he hadn’t even dated.

After meeting Jane at the convention, he’d decided to finally take off his wedding ring. It was about time his deprivation ended. His relationship with Gina was over a long time before they’d even filed. Giving up on what he swore would be a lifetime commitment bothered him, and continuing to wear the ring had felt like his punishment.

He may not have wrecked their marriage, but he did need to find a way to move past the rubble. His weekend adventure reminded him he still had a life of his own to rebuild.

After meeting Jane, he’d wanted the ring off. He’d wanted to move on. He’d wanted to talk to her again, see her deep brown eyes again. He’d given her his contact information that day, but he’d never gotten hers and she hadn’t called. Sure, he could have found her, but at the time he had taken it as a sign. That was then, because now, after the weekend he’d had, he knew he was ready.

He picked up his phone and called his buddy. “Marcus, she called.”

“Who is this?”

“Stop it. You know what I’m talking about.”

“You think? You’ve only managed to squeeze Jane into almost every conversation since the convention.”

“No, I have not.”

“Do you want a recap?”

“Okay, fine. I’m meeting her tomorrow for coffee.” He opened his closet and searched for the right suit.

“Sounds sexy.”

“She thinks she’s found a job for me. I played the conversation perfect, had her begging.” He shifted his still hard cock to a better position.

Mid Week Tease -What They Both Needed- A snippet from In the Blind, Club Blind Book 1

click to see SJ's Mid Week TeasesWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the fabulous Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

Today, I’m teasing from In the Blind because I’ve signed the contract for the 2nd book in my Club Blind Series. Woot!! 😀

This tease is from the end of the first chapter. Enjoy!


 

“I wish we had the time to do it all over again.”

“Our time is almost up?” she asked.

“It will be all too soon. I’d like to lie here with you in my arms for as long as I can.”

She pressed her hand to his chest and tried to memorize the feel and shape of him. He explored her backside. She wanted the moment to last, and it did for a couple more songs.

The music stopped, and a voice rang through the speakers. “Escorts will be coming for the ladies in two minutes.”

The music came back, but it was altogether different. The rhythm was gentler and the volume was considerably lower, which made it easier to talk, if you had something to talk about. She knew she’d regret not saying anything. In this moment, she needed him to know how he’d affected her.

“We aren’t supposed to exchange any information, and I’ll respect that, but I’d like to thank you for tonight. I needed this.” She caressed his cheek.

He pulled her on top of him, and they wrapped their arms around each other. This was nothing but a night of fantastic sex, not a moment to get choked up. His hold tightened with such strength that she couldn’t and didn’t want to pull away.

“It’s time to go.” A new touch stroked her shoulder, and then her robe landed across her back.

She lifted her head enough to give her mystery man a kiss on the cheek. Inch by inch, she pushed herself from him and his hands fell away.

Next weekend, we’ll be celebrating Valentine’s day, but the party starts today. Below you’ll find my giveaway, the link to the rafflecopter for the Grand Prize, and a link to find all the other hop participants.

Chicago has been the backdrop for my books and it’s also the place where my husband and I celebrated our first anniversary years ago. Whenever I think about that anniversary, I’m reminded how any place can be romantic. It doesn’t matter where you are.

Sometimes you need warm weather, sometimes you need something special to eat, or something pretty, like flowers or jewelry. The hero and heroine in my latest release, “In the Blind”, find love and romance in the darkest of places which is not necessarily where you’d think you’d find romance. Romance finds you when you’re not looking for it but it also finds you when you make it happen.

Here’s a snippet from the first chapter of “In the Blind”:

The door continued to open every few minutes. Finally, the woman in front of Jane was taken away. She could see nothing past the door besides black. Until the door closed, she continued gazing into the darkness. How would the loss of sight change the experience? Would she feel more? What would he feel like? Nerves shook through her limbs, and sweat tickled her palms.

The door opened, and she stood straight as a statue. This was crazy. She searched for pockets in her robe. When she found none, she swallowed back a curse.

The escort stopped in front of her. “Are you having second thoughts?” He shifted the goggles higher on his forehead.

“Maybe.”

“Would you like to step back and wait to go or …” He stepped back and cracked the door open. “Sometimes it helps to hear the sounds of the other participants.”

She closed her eyes and took in the moans and let her mind drift to what her body would feel like to make her make those kinds of sounds.

“I don’t want to pressure you. Tell me what you want.”

“Thank you.” She opened her eyes and took a step towards him. The only way was forward. “I’m ready.”

“Good for you.” He reached out and took hold of her hand. “Come on, I’ll take you to the lucky one, for tonight.” He winked and tugged her forward.

Once the door closed behind them, Jane was surrounded by unending black. She looked around, but there was nothing, no end to the darkness. A nervous shiver danced along her spine, followed by thoughts of haunted houses. What would she find around the next corner? Her escort tugged her forward, bringing her back to the night’s purpose.

She needed to remember why she was here. She needed to live in the moment. There was a good chance she was about to touch the man who would give her release.

They slowed, turned a corner, and after a couple more steps they stopped. She swallowed the lump in her throat when her escort placed her hand into another’s.

“Enjoy.” He squeezed her shoulder, and she sensed his presence leave the space.

A pull on her hand forced her feet forward a couple of steps. She stopped just as abruptly when she bumped into a hard chest—the man of the hour. This man would touch her soon, but he wasn’t yet. He was only holding her hand. Her breasts moved with her uneven breathing, and her nipples scraped against his chest.

Why wasn’t he touching her? Was he nervous, too, or having second thoughts? She reached up in curiosity to make sure he wasn’t wearing a pair of night-vision goggles, but only found soft hair. She followed the section of hair to above his shoulder and continued onto smooth skin and around his shoulder to his bicep thick with muscle. Her heart thumped, and her breath quickened as moisture covered her needy pussy.

She breathed deeply, taking in his delicious musky scent. Her hand wandered to his chest and found more of the same, firm skin rounding over firm muscles. A warm hand landed over hers and held her hand tight to his chest. A nose tickled her ear.

“Do you like?”

“Yes,” she admitted.

“I’d like to explore you now, okay?”

“Yes, please.”

She pushed out the breath she held and worked to breathe normally. His hand landed softly on her cheek, fingertips caressed her chin, and then up to her temple. The gentle touches raised a long sleeping yearning within her, and she leaned into his touch.

His thumb swept across her bottom lip. Curiosity wore away her reserve, and she let her tongue reach out and taste his fingers. One digit pushed into her mouth, and she sucked lightly, enjoying his clean taste.

The finger left her mouth, a second of waiting, and then his mouth crushed down on hers. His lips were firm and demanding, feeding her hunger. He ran his fingers through her hair, and then his warm wet tongue swept through her mouth. Back and forth, deep, then gentle, their tongues dueled. She explored more of him as her need to know him intimately soared.

His touch lingered around her shoulders and down her sides. When he found her ass, he kneaded the globes. The kiss ended as abruptly as it started, leaving her wanting.

She heard nothing but the driving rhythm of the music, each track feeding right into another. The current song enchanted her, and her hips swayed. No one could see her, so there was no reason for self-conscious thoughts. The brilliance of the club hit her with full force. It didn’t matter who she was or who he was. Tonight, they celebrated life and the pleasures they could bring their bodies. Everyone deserved pleasure. Even her.
