Fierce Temper – shorter excerpt
Tessa swallowed, the heat from Archer’s touch sizzling through her. Milo’s hand slid to the back of her hair as if he wanted his own turn running his fingers through it. He caressed her hair gently, and she nearly moaned in pleasure.
This was a bad idea. A voice in her head kept saying it. But an even louder voice seemed to be kicking that little voice’s ass. Maybe the timing wasn’t ideal, but she was tired of holding back and putting up walls. She’d tried for so long not to let anyone get close enough to hurt her. Maybe it was time to just let everything go, just let herself go, even if it was only for one night.
“I uh, I mean, I’ve seen just about every emotion on your faces tonight. Anger, concern … desire? At least I think this is what desire looks like.”
“In case you’re unsure, let me clear things up for you.” Milo pulled her up so she stood in front of him. Even though she thought of herself as big, she felt dwarfed next to Milo.
When he leaned into her, her first instinct was to pull away, but Archer had backed up against her, cutting off any escape route. She began to wonder if the two of them had done this together before. They were gentle, but both of them held her firmly enough, making it clear she wasn’t going anywhere.
The heat from their bodies made Tessa’s heart pound and her entire lower half throb. It had been a long time since she’d felt this way. Archer’s hands rested lightly on her waist as he leaned in to nuzzle her hair. Milo’s big hand cupped her cheeks, his thumb rubbing sexy little circles. She swallowed hard, and suddenly found it difficult to breathe. Ever so slowly, he reached up to slide her glasses off. He folded them and handed them to Archer who placed them on the bedside table.
“What are you doing?” she managed to croak.
His hands immediately returned to cup her face, tilting her head up until her eyes met his. Those blue eyes had taken on a smoky tint, and she felt a shudder go through her body as she saw herself reflected in them.
“This. We’re doing this.” He bent his head slowly, giving her time to stop him, time to say no. But she didn’t want to stop him.
Fierce Temper (Ozark Magic, #2)
Damn, this boy can kiss. A fog of desire filled Tessa’s brain as Archer’s tongue explored her mouth. It was different from how he’d kissed her before. It was raw, honest, as if he was offering himself up to her.
A happy sigh escaped her as Archer pulled away. She started to turn to Milo to kiss him in turn, but Archer scooped her up in his arms and walked toward the stairs.
“What are you doing?” she asked as Milo followed them.
“Pet, we have taken you on pretty much every surface in this house, but for some reason, we rarely end up in the bedroom,” Milo answered. “I don’t want you to be uncomfortable right now. You’re hurt.”
“I’m not hurt.” Her lower lip jutted out in a dramatic pout. He was right how they had christened every room, though. The California King bed that currently dominated the master bedroom still proved to be a little small when they really started getting creative. It was good for sleeping, though. She’d never slept better in her life than she did when she was cuddled in between the two of them.
“I don’t mind being in other rooms in the house. The rug in the study is nice and fluffy. It’s much easier on my knees than the rug in the great room,” she mused.
A chuckle rumbled in Archer’s chest as he reached the top of the stairs. The way he could carry her all over without even breathing hard was downright impressive.
“You’ve had a rough day, baby.” His kiss landed on the top of her head. “We won’t make you get on your knees.”
“What? You don’t understand. I have to be on my knees for what I have planned.”
They reached the bedroom, and Archer sat her on the edge of the bed, stepping back to stand in front of her. Milo stood next to him, and both men crossed their arms over their chests, looking like gorgeous gods. The only thing that would make them even sexier is if they would take their damn clothes off. And if they would get rid of those disapproving frowns. What was that about?
“What exactly do you mean what you have planned?” The dark tone of Milo’s voice sent a thrill through her. All it took was him using his Dom voice to make her melt.
“Is that how this works, baby?” Archer stared down at her, his hooded eyes darkening to that rich caramel color.
Well, hell. She hadn’t really been thinking about rules when she’d made her plan. “Well, I … um, no … Masters.” They both stepped closer, and she felt her breath quicken. Her face was even with the large bulge in Milo’s jeans, and she had to bite her lip as her mouth started to water. Archer’s cock also looked to be noticeably straining against his jeans.
Milo’s large hand was surprisingly gentle when he reached out to stroke her cheek with the backs of his knuckles. She reached out automatically, and Archer took her hand. It seemed as though she didn’t feel complete unless she was touching both of them.
“You tend to get your way outside of the bedroom.” Milo threaded his fingers through her hair. “But in the bedroom, we make the rules.”
Tessa raised her eyes to meet his. “In the bedroom, on the kitchen counter, on the rug in front of the fireplace. Humph. That hardly seems fair.” The words were out of her mouth before she’d really even thought about it. She immediately regretted it when Milo’s thick fingers clenched in her hair. The quick bite of pain made her gasp, even as she felt the heat grow between her legs.
“I think that’s enough backtalk, pet. Over my knee.”
I seriously have to thank N.J. Young. This is my type of book. The reason I started blogging in the first place, on top of reviewing. The whole BDSM, girl meet kinky Dom or Doms, I’m not picky that way. And throw in some meaty suspense and drama to keep me revved up on top of all that delicious kink? Yup, my Raison D’être, my happy place. I think you get it.
Fierce Temper is the second book in the Ozark Magic series, and in this book, we get the story of Temperance, or as readers may know her from book one, Tessa. Tessa was Izzy’s friend who was shot in book one when Izzy was taken. (I still have to read that whole book, and believe you me, I’m going right back to do it!) Anywho…
About a year ago, Tessa was Temper Jazz, an adult film star forced into the business thanks to her mother stealing her identity and racking up some serious debit. She leaves the building after a nasty scene, and finds herself having to return to get her car keys. She unfortunately witnesses something she shouldn’t, then has to run, taking something that doesn’t belong to her.
A year later sees her happily ensconced in the town of Magic, her media library doing well, as well as the erotic book club with her friends she has going. The local bartender, Milo has a serious crush on her, but she keeps her distance. When Archer, a man from her porn days shows up, she runs, figuring he’s there to kill her. After a nasty accident, she finds out Archer isn’t who she thought he was, and that he’s really friends with Milo. She then has her past crush and her current crush together and the sparks ignite. But they all find out that the drug cartel is serious about wanting her dead. The game is afoot!
Join in for some seriously hot sex, crazy suspense, and some inventive name calling that I have actually myself used. (though, I wrote some down, because seriously, some of them were badas*)
I positively loved this book, love this series, and can’t wait to see whose book comes next. Though I have a pretty good idea it will be Andi, Theo, and Flynn. At least, I hope so.
5 Hot, Dommie, Orgasms
I’m a Midwestern girl and a lover of coffee, live music, and horror movies, not necessarily in that order.
I’ve been writing all my life, and I honestly can’t remember a time when I wanted to do anything but write. After many years spent suffering the trials of corporate America and writing about everything from financial risk management to software user manuals to website copy about radiators (sadly, I’m not kidding), I decided take the plunge and start writing books.
I love a good love story with super hot alpha males, strong heroines, a little humor, and a lot of suspense. Sprinkle in some sexual fantasies and a few BDSM aspects, and Boom! These are only a few of the themes you’ll find in my books.
When I’m not writing, I’m probably at Starbucks, or fighting evil with the help of my husband, two children, and our houseful of animals.
