Every time I tried to run, he caught me. 
The nights were turbulent as the stormy tides. In his arms, I found refuge…until he became my storm.
 
He’s breaking every part of me like the tide battering against the rocks.
If I can’t escape… I’ll lose more than my heart and body–I’ll lose my mind. 
Next time he won’t catch me. I’ll run to the moon if need be. But something tells me I could never go far enough. He has me ENSLAVED.
I was bored. Attending the same parties, seeing the same faces and even more familiar bodies dolled up in the latest fashions straight from the runway. But one night in Capri changed everything.
She was perfect.
UNTAINTED.
My sweet little dove became a caged bird. I cruelly clipped her wings just as she started to fly. 
She’s mine. 
Destined to soar only in my embrace.
She’s become my sweet little pet, and I’m her UNRELENTING MASTER.
Together we are both ENSLAVED.

I BIT THE INSIDE OF MY CHEEK FORCED to watch my lead deckhand with my little dove, devouring her with his eyes as she asked him to dine with her.
It’s my fault.
I pressed her too hard, too soon. Now she thinks she can flee into a lesser man’s arms for protection.
As if that boy with barely any hair on his face or chest could stop me.
No one can stop me from taking what I want.
And what I want is to make Jessie Dawson my next conquest. I want to feel her young, lithe body under me as I wrap her hair around my wrists, driving into her over and over again as she begs me to let her come—something which she must earn.
Lifting my Cuban to my lips, I pause, feeling desire sing in my blood as I stare down at the glossy photo stapled to her resume.
Jessie Dawson.
Twenty-three.
Single.
Born in San Diego, USA.
A dedicated worker, a seasoned crew member and my next delightful dove in training. I’m hard, straining against my trousers as my finger traces her cheeks. I’ve done this for weeks, jacking off to her photo, picturing those lips with the gap between her teeth wrapped around my cock, taking me deep.
My wayward thoughts were disrupted by the chief stew scurrying towards me.
“May I get you anything, sir?” Without even glancing her way, I shrugged, dismissing her with my silence as I pushed off the railing walking inside my mega yacht.
I don’t even know why I bought the damn thing. I was hoping spending two-hundred million would make me feel something; stupid even.
Devising my plan on how to woo my next victim, my bare feet treaded lightly down the hall to the master stateroom. She’s consuming my thoughts. I wondered where she is, only to find her in my room with her fingers trailing over my cufflinks laying on the dresser.
Pausing silently, my eyes roamed over her backside, noticing how the stewardess uniform hugs tightly to the curve of her ass. Just like I knew it would when I ordered Jessica to give it to her. I had intentionally selected a size too small for Jessie.
She picked up my bottle of five-hundred-dollar custom-made cologne, inhaling as she closed her eyes taking a long whiff.
“Does it make you wet?”
The bottle fell from her hands clanking on the dresser. She was frozen in shock being caught touching my things.
“Admit it,” I breathed stalking closer, closing the gap between us, “you lied in bed all night thinking of me…wanting everything I told you I’d do.”
Her hands fumbled the bottle as she attempted to place my things back where I last left them. “Leave it,” I commanded noticing the drops of liquid staining the mahogany wood.
“It’ll leave a stain.”
“So? I’ll have the dressing table replaced.”
“Just like that?”
“Just like that.” Coming up behind her, I assessed her, as our eyes meeting in the mirror. My index finger swirled in the spilled cologne, lifting it, I rubbed my scent between the hollow of her breasts watching her pupils dilate in the glass.
Dios, you make so hard.” My cock strained against my trousers. I gently touched her waist, bringing her back against my caged anaconda.
She bit her lip, “What if I did think of you? I might have thought about it briefly, but I can’t. So please stop whatever game it is you’re playing. I don’t do casual sex. Besides, I have feelings for someone else.”
Raising my eyebrows, I moved to the side placing my things back in place. “Is that so, little one?”
“I-I should go.”
“Have you finished cleaning my quarters?”
“There’s nothing to clean. It’s spotless.”
Smiling faintly, I shrugged, “I need things to be controlled: orderly. It’s the only way I can function.”
She backed away from me, closer to the door, afraid to take her eyes off me; afraid I’ll pounce. But I’m a hunter luring my prey. When the time comes to feast on her soft flesh—she’ll think it was her idea. Last night, I was angry. My approach with her clumsy, hasty, now I need to back up myself and win her with the finesse and skill learned by seducing dozens of girls that came before.
Oddly, I can’t recall one face. One pair of legs, or any defining thing about one of them.
I didn’t move, just held her gaze until her back hit the door. With a flushed face, she turned, trying to disguise her desire to run, opened the door shutting it behind her with a firm click.
My hands shook as I opened my drawer, finding the bottle of pills I hid inside a pair of rolled up socks. Modern medicine has done wonders for the few people like me. If I took them…it would be a few weeks before they kicked in. Everyone wants— no hopes for me to change. But being devoid of emotion is who I am. It’s what I’m used to. But the tiny white pills inside this bottle hold the promise to change everything for me. The perks of inheriting an empire include contacts with CEO’s of the world’s best biotech companies.
Getting medicine before it hits the market is easy. But something in me revolted every time I opened the bottle peering at the magic pills inside. But seeing her here, in my room, touching my things, has me wishing to feel everything as I break her to fit me.
I want to feel satisfaction, triumph, and the rush of pleasure that promises to course through me when she gives her consent.
Snapping the top off, I shake out a pill into my palm.
This better work.
If they don’t—I’ll personally dismantle Hexagon Pharmaceuticals myself. Destroying things is what I do. Whether it be in the boardroom or bedroom—I’m the man for that job.
My weakness is my greatest strength. The one thing about my success that no one could put their fingers on and my father didn’t see it until the very end when he changed his will at the last minute much to my cousin’s chagrin.
My inability to feel makes me the most formidable businessman in Europe. I rip companies apart, sell them in pieces, not caring how many careers or jobs get lost.
They call me El Diablo.
If they only knew how right they are. The devil has no soul and neither do I and at the helm of my later father’s empire, I rule with an iron fist and black heart, tripling profits in less than two years.
My face was on the last cover of FORBES magazine. I made the top ten list of the most eligible bachelors in the world.
My mouth curved into a smirk as I met my own eyes in the mirror, swallowing the pill.

 

They used my face and fortune to sell thousands of magazines. If they only knew they conned those women. I’m far from eligible. I’m the most unavailable man who’s ever lived.

Title: Wrecked For You
Series: An Exposed Hearts Novel
Author: Kristin Mayer
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 10, 2018

 

My life was set.

In five months I would be engaged to a man I didn’t love.

 

 
In fifteen months I would marry someone who didn’t love me.
 
It was a carefully calculated script thought out by those who had the most to gain. The same people who thought happiness came from money.
 
Everything was going according to plan until I met Hayden Foster. Now, I have to find a way to escape this life—my prison.

Another streak of lightning flashed across the sky. The storm was getting worse. There was no way I’d be able to fly home tonight. Air traffic control would never clear us with the stalled front coming in.

Now or never.
I opened the car door and walked up the pathway that led straight to the front door. The heavy rain quickly soaked through my jeans. I’d found a raincoat on the plane, but it did little to keep me dry. The wind was whipping the water around every which way. Once I got to the door, the covered porch helped shelter me some.

I took a deep breath and then knocked three times.

Stay calm. Whatever happens, at least you’ll know.
The door opened, and warm light spilled out into the darkness. My word, she’s beautiful. There she stood in her jeans and light pink T-shirt with her blonde hair pulled up into a bun on the top of her head. It was hard not to pull her to me and kiss the life out of her.
Her startled eyes met mine. She’d been crying. Seeing her red, blotchy eyes and tear-streaked cheeks slayed me. My fists clenched, and I reminded myself not to rush this. Kory’s lip quivered. Only a couple of feet separated us, but they felt like the width of a canyon.
I began to speak, but she beat me to it, her voice sounding sadder than I remembered. “Hayden, what are you doing here?”

Shit. Thunder roared through the skies and my heart plummeted. That wasn’t the reaction I was hoping for.

Unsure how to respond, I blurted out the first thing that came to mind. “Why did you leave?”

There were a million other things I wanted to ask, like why she was upset, but her question threw me. If things were over, I wasn’t going to put myself out there even more.

She looked around outside before pulling me in the house. I stumbled at the sudden movement but caught myself. The door slammed shut, and in the next moment, Kory threw her arms around me, holding me as if her life depended on it. Without another thought, I wound my arms around her, inhaling her sweet vanilla scent. This was the greeting I had hoped for.
This felt right. 

Kory let out a sniffle before saying, “You came for me. You actually came. When I needed you the most, you came.”

I held her tighter. “I’m sorry it took so long. The way things happened with us and how you left did a number on my head.”

She pulled back, and fresh tears filled her eyes. “You have to go back to Alaska and forget you ever met me. You can’t be here.”
 
Kristin Mayer is a wife and proud mother. Since an early age, she has always enjoyed reading and writing. While visiting her father one weekend, he suggested that she should take up writing again. With family and a career, she didn’t give it a lot of thought, until a story entered her mind and wouldn’t leave. 


At the beginning of 2013, she decided to sit down and write it all down, but she kept it to herself. One sentence developed into two, and before she knew it, she had the makings of a novel.

Kristin tries to live life to the fullest during every moment. She loves to travel, meet new people, and mark items off of her bucket list.

Imperial Stout (Trouble Brewing) 

by Layla Reyne 

Amazon link: http://a.co/d/gLihkUf

 

Synopsis:

Layla Reyne spins off from her pulse-pounding Agents Irish and Whiskey books with Imperial Stout, the first installment in the Trouble Brewing series

It’s a good thing assistant US attorney Dominic Price co-owns a brewery. He could use a cold one. Nic’s star witness has just been kidnapped, his joint operation with the FBI is in jeopardy, his father’s shady past is catching up with him and the hot new special agent in San Francisco is the kind of distraction best handled with a stiff drink.

Kidnap and rescue expert Cameron Byrne has his own ideas about how to handle Nic, but his skills are currently needed elsewhere. The by-the-book FBI agent goes deep undercover as a member of an infamous heist crew in order to save Nic’s witness, break up the crew and close the case before anyone else gets hurt. Nic in particular. 

Things heat up when Cam falls for Nic, and the witness falls for Cam. As the crew’s suspicions grow, Cam must decide how far he’s willing to go—and how far into his own dark past he’s willing to dive—to get everyone out alive.

This book is approximately 62,000 words

Imperial Stout (Trouble Brewing #1) is a spinoff of the Irish & Whiskey series by Layla Reyne, where we first meet Nic and Cam.  You could tell there was an attraction between the two and I couldn’t wait to get their story.

Assistant US Attorney Dominic “Nic” Price and FBI Special Agent Cameron Bryne are working a case together and trying to keep their CI alive.  When things don’t go as planned, Cam has to put his life on the line.   Nic is struggling, not only with his new budding relationship with Cam, but someone is threatening Nic.  He know his father is involved, but he needs to find out the details to finally put an end to it.

I loved both Nic and Cam and their very slow burn romance.  Their chemistry is off the charts and there are a few pretty hot sex scenes.  Plus, you get to see the whole gang again, even Danny.  Although I did have one little niggle.  Right from the beginning, there is a lot going on, maybe too much.  I struggled to figure out who was who and I even thought I skipped a book.  It does all work out, and by 15% I settled in and I started to understand more.

Since this does end with a HFN, I am anxious to get my hands on book 2.  I think there is so much to learn about both Nic and Cam.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher/NetGalley in exchange for an honest review ~

Seventeen years on the job, I still remember my first day like it was yesterday. I fixed my probie patch to my uniform, strapped on my gear and ran to catch the Staten Island Ferry, making my way to the burning towers. My boots pounded the pavement of lower Manhattan as the dire need to save lives pulsated through my veins.
It was a day I became a hero.
Throughout my career, I often thought about the man I saved that day. I wondered about his life. If he had eventually married and had a family of his own. I never expected to find the answers.
Meeting her was a twist of fate.
Lying to her was my choice.
But falling in love with her was beyond my control.

Life had always been good to me, and I made sure to keep it that way.
My mom had given me the only tool I’d need to succeed—manipulation. Add to that
the fact I was beautiful, confident, and rich, and I was on my way to having it
all.
My name is Annabelle, and I was the stereotypical head cheerleader,
dating the star quarterback. The school was mine, and I couldn’t wait to be
crowned prom queen.
One night, my world changed forever. All I believed my future would
hold was ripped from my grasp in a ball of flames. I lost my identity, my
boyfriend, and my friends. Suddenly, I was the monster nobody wanted around.
A scarf hid my true identity, and I was left staring at the beast in
the mirror. My appearance now matched the ugliness I once had inside, but I’d
do everything I could to prove I still had some beauty buried deep within.
Sometimes, you have to lose who you are to become who you were meant to
be.

I live in Canberra Australia and work too many hours a day at my day job.
I’m a book whore who can easily (and happily) read a book from start to finish in a day and when I do have spare time, you’ll find me in the writing cave.
