Illicit Affairs

Illicit Affairs is a compilation of three erotic tales with women giving into their darkest desires and pursuing the forbidden.

Unexpected Journey by Jo Matthews

Sarah thought she met her soul mate in Mitch Chandler. High school sweethearts, they married right after graduation. Eight years later, he is a stranger to her and their marriage is on the rocks. In a halfhearted attempt to placate her, Mitch suggests a trip to Hawaii, but schedules a business meeting to write off the expense.

Aaron Johnson, Mitch’s friend and business partner, agrees to help with the presentation and plans are made for all three to go. What happens when Mitch backs out at the last minute to spend a romantic weekend with his secretary, forcing Aaron’s hand so that he has to accompany Sarah alone?

Will an innocent friendship turn into something more as Aaron’s attraction for Sarah grows? How will Sarah manage when she realizes that Aaron is awakening feelings in her that she’s never felt before? The sexual tension burns hot as these two embark on an unexpected journey that neither are prepared for.



The flight to San Diego was quick, though the one to Hawaii was considerably longer. Somewhere over the Pacific, Sarah fell asleep; the day had obviously taken a toll on her emotions and exhausted her. I wasn’t really tired myself, so I grabbed a magazine from the caddy in front of me and started flipping through it. Not ten minutes later, she shifted in her sleep and leaned over, her head resting on my shoulder.

I froze in place, unsure of what to do. Part of me was screaming to wake her up or at least move her, while the other part of me—the part that tended to take over in any man when there was a sexy goddess nearby—wanted me to savor the moment. I must have warred with myself for three minutes straight until I decided it didn’t matter. There was no harm in letting Sarah sleep on my shoulder on a plane to Hawaii. No harm at all, considering her husband was the one who put us on the flight together.

Unable to resist any longer, I turned my head into her hair and breathed in her intoxicating scent. She smelled like wildflowers and sunshine, and I couldn’t help but inhale more deeply as I closed my eyes.

Hot Summer Nights by Bec Rose

Annie Murphy had the picture perfect life. A beautiful home, a wonderful son, and a husband who adored her. It was every woman’s dream until her husband of over twenty years came out of the closet, leaving her a forty-five year old divorcee struggling to regain her confidence. Needing a distraction, she agrees to allow her son’s friend, Jamie, to spend the summer at her house while working as an intern. When Jamie, the cute female intern she’d been expecting turns out to be Jaime, the hot male intern with abs to drool over, it kicks Annie’s fantasies into overdrive. When she realizes that her desires are not one sided, it’s more than the temperature that causes some hot summer nights.




​She kept her eyes on mine as she knelt down in front of me. I nearly came just at the sight of her down there, but needed to hold it together. I started thinking about some god-awful things just to keep my composure, not wanting to look like the novice.

Annie licked her lips before she took her eyes off mine and focused her attention on my swollen cock. I don’t think I had ever been that hard before in my life. When she leaned forward, she grinned to herself before licking my cock from tip to base. My body shuddered and I needed to hold on to the railing beside me to stop myself from crumbling to the floor in pleasure.

“Fuck, Annie! God, please.” I was begging for her mouth to be wrapped around my cock, and even if this was the first and last time we would be together, just the memory of her in this position would give me reason enough to jerk off for months to come.

She finally gave in at my insistence and sucked on my throbbing cock, the tip beyond ready to burst. I hissed at the feeling, my head rolling from side to side. I wanted to watch what she was doing but the pleasure she was giving me was so fucking good that I couldn’t help but close my eyes.

I had no idea how or what she was doing, but the overload of sensations just from her mouth was incredible. I had only ever been with high school or college age girls, and clearly, none of them had known what they were doing when giving head.

“Oh, fuck! Annie, you need to stop or I’m going to come.” I had to be honest; she must have felt my cock strain at the pressure, and I knew I was only moments away. Her tongue continued to swirl around the tip as she came up and then plunged back down, swallowing around me, almost taking all of me in.

I felt her nod as I told her, and when I looked down, that was my undoing. Watching her suck on my cock—on her knees in front of me while looking back up at me—was all I could handle. I came hard and pushed myself further into her mouth. She swallowed fast, easily keeping up with the streams of come I released down her throat. Then, after sucking on me once more as if to pull every last drop from my shaft, she released my cock with a pop.

When she stood up in front of me, I had to kiss her. I didn’t care that just moments before she had my cock in her mouth. That simple act had clearly driven me insane. I wanted to fuck this woman more than anything else right then, and I only hoped she felt the same.

Second Chances by NJ Cole

Calla Moretti married her college sweetheart, Bill. Married life was great at first, but as his career had her dropping out of college and moving away from her family and friends, Calla struggled with her role as a wife and homemaker. Stress due to infertility and Bill’s affairs, had the marriage on the brink of failure. When she drives home in the middle of a thunderstorm and spots first a broken down motorcycle, then the sexy rider, she decides to take a chance and offer him assistance. Realizing fate brought her together with a man who could give her the one thing her husband couldn’t—a baby—Calla decides to take a chance. One romantic night, one big lie, will it save her marriage or fill her heart with more emptiness? Will this be the answer to her prayers? In life, are there truly second chances?



As the euphoria began to subside, I realized I still had his head in the vice that was my thighs. I relaxed my muscles to release him, but he didn’t seem in a hurry to move. Instead, he lowered his lead slightly and licked at the arousal I could feel trickling from my body.

“God, you’re delicious,” he groaned, pulling back. “I could do that all night, but I have to have you.” Standing at the foot of the bed, he lowered his pants. I was glad he hadn’t turned off the light or I wouldn’t have been able to see the most magnificent cock in the world. It was long and thick and beautiful—if that was even possible.

I drug my eyes from it and looked up to his face to find that he wasn’t smiling. In fact, he looked upset. The color seemed to have drained from his face in the blink of an eye. I was about to ask what was wrong when he spoke. “I um…I don’t have a condom. I just…well I didn’t know.” He raked his hand over the stubble on his face. “Do you? Of course you don’t. It’s not like someone like you would have…” His words trailed off as he ran his hand through his hair. “I can go and see if there is any place open. SHIT! I don’t even have my bike. I could borrow…”

“It’s okay,” I said softly, interrupting his little rant.

He looked at me, eyes wide. “You mean it’s okay to borrow your car? Or…” he hesitated and dropped his voice an octave, “is it okay okay?”

Lying back, I pulled him on top of me. “I mean, it’s okay.” I knew he thought I meant I was on birth control; it was deceitful, but it was what I needed.

Settling on top of me, he slid one hand under my back as the other cupped my cheek. “You are so beautiful,” he said, gazing down at me. “I swear I could stare into your eyes all night.”

I whimpered at his words and how genuine they sounded. I’d never felt so attractive in my life. It was impossible to understand why he thought my muddy green eyes were beautiful, but I could tell that he believed what he said.

“God I want you,” he groaned through gritted teeth. “I can’t remember ever wanting anything more.”

His eyes closed as he kissed me gently. It wasn’t urgent like the others; I could tell he was taking his time. As our tongues met, he shifted his weight nudging my legs apart slightly. When he moved his hips, I felt his cock glide in long strokes over the top of my swollen pussy and rub against my clit. I rotated my hips slightly and groaned in response.

His lips left mine as he shifted back onto his knees. With the hand that was under my back, he lifted me slightly and lined me up with his cock. He didn’t reach between us—there was no fumbling at all—he just pressed forward gently, the tip of his erection separating my folds. He stared into my eyes as his throbbing member entered and stretched me.

“Fuck, you’re so small, Baby. Am I hurting you?” he whispered, his lips inches from mine.

I shook my head, unable to speak. It didn’t hurt at all; it felt wonderful. I did, however, mewl in pleasure, causing him to stop his forward movement.

Finding my voice I whimpered, “Please don’t stop. You feel so good.”

“Ungh, I couldn’t stop even if I wanted to,” he groaned, rolling his hips and inching in a bit more. I craved all of him, so I grabbed onto his ass and pulled him to me as I lifted my hips and thrust myself toward him. I yelped in pain as he entered me fully, our hips finally touching. His eyes flashed with concern at my sound, but I smiled up at him. It was painful, but it was a good pain. I’d never felt so full.

Blog Tour/Review/Giveaway - Underestimated by Jettie Woodruff



Book synopsis:

Warning! This is not your everyday fall in love romance. This book contains disturbing situations, strong language, graphic, sexual content, some forced, some not. If it's your happily ever after love story that you are looking for, you should probably move on. If you are up for the ride, stick around and it may just turn into a love story after all.

Morgan starts her life in a bad situation, she doesn't really know what she wants out of life. She's never had anyone to look up to, or help guide her in the right direction. She had it rough, and never dreamed that it could get worse, however she finds that it can, and does.

She learns what real hell is when she meets the husband that she doesn't want to marry, but isn't given a choice. Can she escape? She can, and does only to wake up and find herself right back at square one



Author BIO



Jettie Woodruff is a practicing physician and has been a Civil War buff for decades. No. Not really, she is not a doctor nor is she a Civil War buff. She is however a goof-off and has a hard time being serious for too long.

She does enjoy a challenge when it comes to her writing. She feels as though she needs to pull every emotion possible from her readers. She wants you to be pissed off, questioning your sanity, depressed, happy, and hopefully turn your mind from wanting to cut the villain into tiny little pieces to loving him by the end of the book.

Underestimated was her first dark endeavor. It was a goal alongside of writing a series, a standalone romance, a young adult, which she can’t check that one off. She tried she really did, but her mind just doesn’t work outside the gutter and it quickly became rated X.

Jettie lives on 163 acres in a rural part of Ohio. She loves living in Ohio, except maybe the snow, and the long winters, maybe the hot summers too, Ah, hell, she hates Ohio. She does love the land and the solitude of the country. She just wishes it was in a geographically in a better part of the country.

Jettie has two grown children and one who will be eighteen in a matter of days. YES!!! She has also recently just had her first, cutest ever, most adorable, granddaughter in the whole world. Her oldest daughter just hit her with the news that she will be adding another grandchild to the family in February. Although she is sure she will fall in love with the little creature, she still can’t say the G word.

Jettie enjoys reading as much as she loves writing. She has way too many favorites to list, but one of her all-time favorites from years ago was the Casteel series from V.C. Andrews. One of her new favorites is C.J. Robert’s, Captive series. Reading it gave her that needed push that she required to say the hell with what people think and write Underestimated.

By day Jettie is wearing business attire and managing a mattress store. By night she is in front of a keyboard or her Kindle, wearing, well let’s not go there. Underestimated was her fifth book published. The first one was just shy of a disaster, not that it was a bad book. People liked it. She just knew nothing about it, no revising, no editing, just a spur of the moment…. “Oh, I wrote a book, lets publish it.” Train wreck and a half. Her Star series was one of her favorites and is held dear to her heart. She is now working on an adult romance that should be live around the end of August, early September. She can’t seem to stay focused on it at the moment, due to a much needed Bahamas vacation coming up with Adam Levine’s walking around half naked, buying her drinks.





This could not be happening. It was like one of those movies that kept you on the end of your seat, waiting to see what happened. I went around the bus, and Derik was now right behind me. I shot back in front of the bus and took the next street to the right. I kept darting in and out of traffic, up and down different streets with Derik right on my tail.

I finally got out of the city enough to get some speed, still passing cars, illegally. I didn’t care. I would have loved for the cops to see me and stop me. They didn’t, and I was left to fend for myself. I was a few cars ahead of him when I came up on a sports car with the top down, full of young girls. They were yelling and having the time of their life, but they were driving too slowly. I knew I shouldn’t try it. I couldn’t see if anything was coming from the little knoll.

I darted around them, and I was right. I shouldn’t have done it. Neither I nor the city bus driver had time to react before my car was under his bumper. I don’t remember much after that. I could vaguely recall sirens, voices and the sound of a saw. I was hot. I was so hot, and I could smell smoke. Was the car on fire? Was I being cut out of the car? I didn’t know. I was drifting away. I felt my body becoming lighter and lighter as I floated into the dark.

I’m sorry, Dawson…

Review of Underestimated by Jettie Woodruff

Reviewer - Fiona Wilson

Rating - 4 Hearts

This story is erotic in nature and features scenes of BDSM. It should be read by a mature audience only. Please be warned!

This book starts off as one thing then turns itself on its head and becomes something else. It reminds me very much of the film "Sleeping With the Enemy" with Julia Roberts.

Morgan is running from something, turning herself into someone totally different to who she has grown up as. Morgan becomes Riley, moves to a small town, finds a job, makes friends and even meets someone who could become very important to her.

Slowly her story as Morgan starts to come out, and it is a very shocking story. What Morgan went through in her early life is something no one should go through. She deserves so much more, and it seems like she can get the life she deserves at last.

But the author then throws in a curveball, and Morgan finds herself struggling once again. She has changed as a person though, and uses her new found confidence to change things in the situation she finds herself in.

For a while she muddles through, believing that this is her life. But a chance encounter throws everything up in the air yet again as she is thrown back in time once again.

During the first half of the story I really liked Morgan/Riley. I could see that her past had caused heartache for her, and I agreed that she deserved a new life.

But during the second part I found myself disliking her slightly. She finds herself in a terrible situation, one which she tries to deal with by bringing her past and her present together. A lot of the decisions she makes hurt people, and I didn't agree with some of those decisions.

However, for the story to work its way to its conclusion Morgan had to go through what she did. She had to make the decisions she did. And her past and present had to meet the way they did.

I loved this story. It was different in many ways to books I have read before in that the storyline was quite unique. One thing I did take from this is that everyone can change should the circumstances present themselves the right way. It is a difficult story to read at times due to the content, but if you work your way through it I assure you it is worth it.

Author Interview/Review/Giveaway - Eliza Green, Author of Becoming Human


Where do you get your inspiration from?

I go to the cinema once a week. I find it a really great way of relaxing. While I also love company, the introvert inside me wants to banish the noise. I relish silence. It’s during those moments of deep thought that the inspiration comes and movie visuals help to stir up the grey matter a little faster.

How do you cope if you get a bad review?

My heart still hammers in my chest when I see a new review somewhere. If it’s a bad one, I try to look at it objectively to see if there’s any advice I should take on board, or if it’s just personal preference that they don’t like it. Readers are entitled to their own opinion and I would be a poor sport if I challenged them on their reviews. Why would I want to do that? I don’t understand why authors attack readers if they don’t like the review they get. Chances are the authors still have some work to do to improve their story, whether it’s editing or execution.

On the flip side, readers should also show respect and not resort to personal attacks on authors, as I’ve seen happen recently. The door swings both ways. But, I’m glad to see that the majority of readers are really nice.

Occupational hazards about being a writer?

Publishing too early. Sitting back and waiting for the sales to roll in without lifting a finger. It won’t happen unless you’re really, really lucky, which most writers aren’t. Being self motivated enough to write new material. Sticking to deadlines. Very important.

What makes you laugh?

People with a dry sense of humour. I’m Irish and one of the things we seem to do naturally is take the proverbial p**s out ofeach other. It’s all good natured and you can spot the peoplewith the clever wit a mile off.

I’m a dog lover and previous dog owner and they do the silliest things. Cats, not so much. They have an air about them that says,’ I’m not bothered that you’re watching.’ Dogs are much more eager to please and hilarious to watch because of it.

Which book has been the hardest to write?

I wrote a different book in another genre. That’s going to be reworked before I publish it because I was a little too green when I wrote it. In the current Exilon 5 trilogy, I have published BECOMING HUMAN. ALTERED REALITY, book 2 in the trilogy, is in the editing stage and I’m writing the first draft of Book 3.

BECOMING HUMAN was probably the most difficult. I had no idea how to write, never mind Science Fiction, and it took me four years to iron out all the problems and to learn from my mistakes. As a result, BECOMING HUMAN took the longest to write. In comparison, ALTERED REALITY was a lot easier to write.

Any hints as to what lies ahead for your characters?

BECOMING HUMAN examines the fallout when one of the indigenous race (Indigenes) on Exilon 5 makes contact with a human. ALTERED REALITY will explore the home life of the Indigenes in more detail. The status quo has been maintained for a long time but things are about to change, for both races.

Favourite character?

In BECOMING HUMAN, I quite like Bill Taggart, the World Government investigator, and Laura O’Halloran, the woman who was involuntarily dragged into something murky.

Bill is a loner. I can relate to that. There are times when only myown company will do.

Laura is trying to do what’s best for herself and her mother. But when faced with corruption, she has to make some difficult choices.

Least favourite?

Daphne Gilchrist is the main antagonist in BECOMING HUMAN. She’s a ball breaker and she doesn’t care who she steps on to get business done. I wrote her to be a feared character, but secretly, I like her. She gets done what the procrastinators won’t.

What genres of books do you read?

My go to genre is Crime. I love Michael Connolly and I devoured Patricia Cornwell’s series. Next, I read Science Fiction, in particular dystopian. I just finished the third book in Suzanne Collin’s Hunger Games trilogy and I’m hunting for another series that grabbed me the way that one did. I’m reading more books from self-published authors, whose genres vary. Did you ever dream you would become an author?

Absolutely not. I’m not one of those people who dreamed about writing. I hated English in school, mostly because of how it was taught. I was always good at spelling, but the focus was usually on outdated books like Shakespeare and Charles Dickens, and the old world language frustrated me. Those books put me off reading when I was younger. But then I started reading at night.Now, all I do is read, as well as write.

I fell into the writing by chance. I just turned on my laptop and wrote a chapter for a different genre to the one I write now andliked the control I had over my story. Getting the story down is hard but not as challenging as learning how to weave the story together, how to structure grammar properly and how to avoid the mistake of too much back story.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Writing full time and controlling my own destiny. I work full time and spend my day thinking about what I will write in the evening. Before writing, I used to grumble about giving up free time, but now it all goes on writing-related tasks and I don’t mind. As BECOMING HUMAN gains higher readership levels, the demands on me to release the second one become greater. You can’t help feeling as if you’re letting readers down by delaying the next publication. ALETERED REALITY is due for a December 2013 release, a little later than some readers would like, but I must work to a schedule I can manage.

If I can get rid of the day job, then maybe I can write the books faster!

Review by Mary Beth Witkop

4 Stars


Wow! That was the first thing that came to mind when i finished this book. Obviously this story is a Sci-fi, with the futuristic setting and the amazing world Earth and Exilon 5 that we are thrown into. But don't let that scare you away, it was so much more than just the futuristic worlds that it is set in. It has mystery, intrigue, heartache, and double crossing and it left me excited about the next one.

The details of this story were amazing, everything that Ms. Green had written became a living thing. I felt as if I was watching a movie the way she detailed everything from the setting, to the clothing, and what the characters were wearing. From the important to the mundane, such as them standing in line to get a meal (which would normally seem boring and unneeded) helped add to the everyday living of our future world.

Most writers ease you into the story, but not this one, this one starts with a explosion and I mean that literally. Then fast forward 25 years after the explosion and we follow a whole slew of characters who are not only trying to live but they are also trying to find out what is really going on Earth and Exilon 5. It was a little difficult to follow at first but once the story got moving I couldn't wait to see what would happen next and to see how all of these characters would intertwine and man did Ms. Green deliver.

More please!!

"You've finished it already??" - My boyfriends exact words when I finished this beaut just 2 days after getting my hands on it. And for those 2 days I was absorbed, enthralled and hot.... Did I mention this book is HOT!!! As in take 50 shades and triple it hot. That doesn’t even begin cover my feelings for this book! But I don’t want you to focus on that (Yet), I want you to focus on this amazing and beautiful story that Rachael Orman has written. It takes a special kind of author to write something that is not only one of the hottest things I have EVER read, but also fill it with such depth and compassion.

In this book we follow Gwen on her heart breaking journey to love and acceptance of her past. Haunted by a kidnapping, Gwen spent years getting over the torture and abuse she received whilst held captive. Finding love wasn’t something she’d ever planned to do, but was an unexpected and pleasant surprise in the form of Mckayla. Her best friend, lover and saviour. Throughout this book Mckayla saves Gwen from her inner demons over and over and over again. She’s a saint and personally I love her as a character. I genuinely felt like she brought this book to life. You can see in this little world they have created, there’s no room for a man…Any further addition to their carefully, but barely held together life is going to end in disaster, and disaster comes in the tall dark and handsome shape of Cole. After their first meeting you’re left bewildered trying to work out exactly how this sexy man, is ever going to fit into their equation.

I can assure every one of you that you’ll be hooked after the first chapter. It’s that simple. The only question I have is why Rachael…Why? That just wasn’t fair (You know what I mean!!). I’ll be waiting impatiently for part two of this amazing series!

Have you ever had a night out with friends where you end up meeting a man who seems to understand you from the moment you met? Have you met a man who wants more from you but is willing to patiently wait until you get comfortable with his needs?

Unexpected Angel deals with themes of dominance, control, submission and trust. A work of fiction, this book has mature themes and situations.

Tasha Skinner is finally ready to say good bye to a failed marriage. Looking forward to a night out with friends, little did she know that her friends had other plans, including a night of celebrating her divorce at a Leather and Lace party. Held at the Marquee, she meets Dylan Caprese, businessman and dominant. The attraction between them is immediate. Tasha’s innocence and trusting nature tells Dylan that Tasha is not the usual person that the Marquee attracts. He feels possessive and very protective of her, a fact of which she enjoys one moment, then hates the next. When Tasha attracts a stalker, will Dylan be able to protect her and keep her safe?

Unexpected Angel is billed as a story that deals with dominance, control and submission. These themes were lightly touched on in the story in terms of physical activity. s What Unexpected Angel really deals with is trust – Tasha learning how to trust again so she can open herself up to another relationship and Dylan learning how to trust his instincts when it comes to Tasha; Tasha learning to trust that Dylan only has her best interests at heart, and Tasha learning how to trust new friends.

Dylan is the type of dominant that truly looks out for his partner. He is not abusive, disrespectful nor sadistic. He is definitely the dominant personality, but Tasha is able to hold her own against him. She knows when to push back and stand up for herself, and when to fold and allow the dominant Dylan to take over. I loved that Dylan is patient with Tasha – knowing when and how to introduce her to some of his preferences.

I also loved that Dylan is the first hero who does not have a mop of curly, bronze, untamed hair. I have found a shaved head, toned muscles, sculpted abs and some ink a very very attractive package.

In the end, Unexpected Angel, met most of what I had expected from the book – there is heat, seduction, attraction, giving and taking. I would have loved a bit more of the dominant Dylan to show up, but the organic way that their relationship developed with trips to the ballpark, hanging out with friends, and nights out is so natural, so normal that makes their story very relatable.

Blog Tour/Review/Giveaway/Author Interview - Wrong Kind Of Love by Amanda Heath



Genre: Contemporary New Adult

The first time I ever saw Caden Harper I’m pretty sure I fell in love.

All that golden hair and pale blue eyes. He was mysterious and covered

in paint. I found it endearing and wanted nothing more than to find

out all his secrets. I gave that man things I would never give anyone

else. He blew it though. Which I shouldn’t be surprised considering he

is a womanizer.

So I moved on, well kind of. Jaden Harper wasn’t what I expected. I

found myself drawn to him all most as much as his brother. Maybe it’s

the fact they are twins or maybe it was the fact I wanted to live on

the wrong side for once in my life.

Now I’ve found myself dug deep in this game. Theres no end in sight

and I wonder when all the lies I have told will come back to haunt me.

Neither man should know the things I’ve gone through. Neither should

trust me. I’m not who I say I am. My past is full of things I won’t

ever share.

But where will that lead me when Caden wants nothing more than to

consume me? He won’t wake up to see he has the wrong kind of love.

My Name is Grace BreadField and this is my story.

Where can I buy the book? AMAZON!

Author Interview

What is the most important thing about being a writer? 
My readers. If there weren't people out there who want to read my books, then I wouldn't be writing.

Where do you get your inspiration from? 
Everyday life. A lot of the stuff in my books comes from things that happened to me or my closest friends. And I add random stuff that I love throughout 

How do you cope if you get a bad review? 
I don't read the bad reviews. I do not have thick skin and if I read the bad reviews, I would think everyone thought that way. Plus people are being nasty these days.

How do you choose your characters names?
Several characters have their names stolen from a real person that I know, or have heard about. Example: Chance is the name of one of the closest friend to my husband. My Chance and the real Chance are nothing alike. They don't even look alike.

Occupational hazards about being a writer? 
Lmao. Lets see, I generally lose a lot of weight when writing a book because I focus only on writing, and not eating. My social life declines. My friends say I get "bitchy" when I'm writing, so they don't come over. My child tends to go insane and sit under my chair and scream. She also likes to suck on my toes while I'm writing. True Story.

What book or film character would you say you were most like? 
Sam from Tijan's Fallen Crest series. I see myself in her quite a lot. I don't run until I nearly pass out but I'm pretty sure I love Mason as much as she does. 

Which book has been the hardest to write? 
Wrong Kind of Love. I am wholly against cheating. It took me months to write this one because I couldn't justify it in my head. I had actually never intended to write this book but my fans were screaming for it, so there you go.

Any hints as to what lies ahead for your characters? 
Jaden will have a happy ending…if the girl is Ava…well you'll just have to figure that out. 

Favourite character? 
Norma Jean

Least favourite? 
I hate Spencer

Which character would you like to meet in real life? 
Mason Kade from Tijan's Fallen Crest Series

Your favourite authors? 
Gena Showalter, Kresley Cole, Richelle Mead, Tijan, Penelope Douglas, Shanora Williams

Favourite book right now? 
Bully by Penelope Douglas

What genres of books do you read? 
Right now I read New Adult

Childhood book? 
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

Did you ever dream you would become an author? 
Yes! I've been writing since before I can remember

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 
Hopefully still doing this!

Random questions -

Favourite color? Green

Favourite food? Sushi

Best childhood memory? Snuggling with my cat Sumie. He passed away at six years old. I have his name tattooed on my wrist.

Best ever purchase? Can be something big or small. My Kindle

Best memory as an adult? Giving birth to my daughter

Is there a person, alive or dead, you dream about meeting if you could? Anne Boleyn

My Review
3.5 Stars

Girl meets boy, likes him. Boy meets girl, likes her. They get together. Seems simple enough doesn't it? But things aren't as they first appear.

Grace is a troubled young woman who meets Caden Harper and is instantly attracted to him. She quickly discovers that he likes rough sex, and it would appear so does she. But is she really Grace, or is she hiding her true identity from him?

Caden has a twin brother, Jaden. Grace's brother David decides that Jaden would be more suited to Grace as Caden is the typical bad boy/womaniser type. Grace agrees, but instantly knows she has made the wrong decision. She just cannot stay away from Caden, and they have more than a few dalliances while she is with Jaden.

Grace is so unsure of what she wants all the time that she constantly goes between Caden and Jaden, without letting anyone else know, except her brother. She is trying to do what is right and keep her brother safe, but in doing the 'right thing' she has the ability to cause a lot more hurt to a lot of people.

Caden also has problems from his past which dictate how he is in the present. With two people hiding secrets not only from each other but from friends and family, can they really have a future? 

Of course, when the secrets they are hiding finally come out, as they always do, can Grace and Caden hope to have the future they dream about? Or will they be forced to live without each other?

This was quite a quick read for me. It wasn't a subject matter I was 100% comfortable reading if I'm totally honest, as it involves cheating. It has a lot of graphic sex scenes in it as well as a lot of swearing so would definitely recommend this book for those over 17 at least. 

At times the storyline really annoyed me, especially with Grace constantly bouncing back and forward between the brothers. It's bad enough cheating, but when you cheat with your, so called, boyfriends brother, it's so much worse in my eyes. The storyline aside, the book was just ok for me.
