Blog Tour Stop: Out of Time (Nine Minutes #2) by Beth Flynn

They thought with his execution it would all be over. 
They were wrong.

The leader of one of South Florida’s most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs has been put to death by lethal injection. Days later, his family and friends should have been picking up the pieces, moving on. Instead, they’ve been catapulted into a world so twisted and dangerous even the most ruthless among them would be stunned to discover the tangled web of deception, not only on the dangerous streets of South Florida but all the way to the top. 

In this gripping follow-up novel to Nine Minutes, Out of Time takes readers from the sun-drenched flatlands of 1950s Central Florida to the vivid tropical heat of Fort Lauderdale to the halls of Florida’s Death Row as we finally learn the gritty backstory of Jason “Grizz” Talbot, the terrifying leader of Satan’s Army motorcycle gang, and the secret he spent his life trying to conceal. 

Not even Grizz’s inner circle knows his full story—the tragedy that enveloped his early life, the surprise discovery that made him the government’s most wanted and most feared, and the depths of his love for Ginny, the tenderhearted innocent he’d once abducted and later made his wife.

Once Grizz’s obsession and now the mother of his child, Ginny has spent years grieving the man she’d first resisted and then came to love. Now remarried to Tommy, a former member of the gang, the pair have spent more than a decade trying desperately to live a normal existence far from the violent, crime-ridden world they’d once carved out on the edge of the Florida Everglades. For Tommy, especially, the stakes are high. Desperately in love with Ginny for years, he’s finally living his dream: married to the woman he never thought he could have. But even with the façade of normalcy—thriving careers, two beautiful children, and a genuinely happy and loving marriage—they can’t seem to put the past behind them. Every time they turn around, another secret is revealed, unraveling the very bonds that hold them together. 

And with Grizz finally put to death, now Ginny has learned secrets so dark, so evil she’s not even sure she can go on. 

Will these secrets tear their love to pieces? And how far will Grizz go to protect what he still considers his, even from beyond the grave?

OUT OF TIME is the HIGHLY ANTICIPATED sequel to NINE MINUTES where Grizz, Kit & Grunt's gritty tale continues!  You aren’t going to want to miss this!

ARC Review: Wicked Fall (The Wicked Horse #1) by Sawyer Bennett

Never in your wildest dreams could you begin to imagine all the filthy and depraved things that go on inside The Wicked Horse. Step inside and Woolf Jennings will make every one of your dirty fantasies come true.

He’s covered in a facade of deception. An enticing blend of multi-millionaire and hot-as-hell Wyoming rancher, those that think they know Woolf Jennings admire his abilities to preside as CEO of his family’s cattle and oil empire. But only a privileged few truly understand what fuels the glitter of depravity in those gorgeous blue eyes. Only a few know he’s opened up a sinfully erotic and private sex club named The Wicked Horse right at the base of the beautiful Teton Mountain range.

Sweet Callie Hayes has returned home to Wyoming and is looking forward to starting her life over again. After a night of impetuosity, she’s managed to put herself right in Woolf’s line of sight… the man who she foolishly offered up her virginity to years ago and was flatly turned down.

Now Woolf is seeing that Callie is all grown up and has a kinky side to her that leaves him as confused as it does turned on. Worse yet, both Callie’s dirty desires and sweet heart are getting under his skin, and making Woolf question everything he’s ever believed about himself.

Purchase Wicked Fall on Amazon! Release Date: July 28, 2015.


4.5 Wicked Stars

Wow! Wow! Wow! Every book that Ms. Bennett releases it just gets hotter and hotter. I love her books.I love her characters and writing style. Woolf Jennings in Wicked Fall is one hot cowboy. Giddy up!

We briefly met Woolf in the last series, Shaken Not Stirred (reading not required for this series, but please, do read that hot series!), he's the brother of Tenn. He's a wealthy cowboy that took over his family's cattle and oil empire. It feel into his lap after the death of his father and Tenn did not want to run. 

Woolf is successful at running the family business, but it's not his passion. His passion is dark, hot and super erotic.  With his close friend, Bridger, they open a private sex club called The Wicked Horse. It's only for the elite and very few know about this place. 

Growing up as the "little sister" to Woolf, Callie Hayes  has always had a crush him. But Woolf didn't seem to respond and after years apart and seeing each other on occasion her crush on him, never went away. Now sweet, innocent Callie is back and all grown up.

Woolf takes notice of Callie as a woman, but knows that his dark, kinky and sinful secret can only hurt the good in Callie. He tries to stay away, but the attraction and this "new, bolder" Callie is hard to resist. 

And  holy crap--the attraction and chemistry between these two is off the chart. Their scenes made my Kindle steam up! I LOVED these two characters together. But all the passion and sex that these two ignite, has Callie question if Woolf can stay faithful and ok with having a "vanilla" relationship with her. She knows his kinks and fantasy. 

Can The Wicked Horse help sweet little Callie become a little more open and bold with Woolfe? Or will she run? Wicked Horse is quick and hot read that will keep you on your toes to the very end.

I'm hoping that the dark, mysterious Bridger will get a book next, so he can find a woman who can play on his kinky level and give him a HEA! Looking forward to more in this series.

ARC Review: Racing the Sun by Karina Halle

From the USA TODAY bestselling author of Where Sea Meets Sky comes a new adult novel about a young woman who becomes a nanny in Capri and falls for her charges’ bad-boy brother.

It’s time for twenty-four-year-old Amber MacLean to face the music. After a frivolous six months of backpacking through New Zealand, Australia, and Southeast Asia, she finds herself broke on the Mediterranean without enough money for a plane ticket home to California. There are worse places to be stuck than the gorgeous coastline of southern Italy, but the only job she manages to secure involves teaching English to two of the brattiest children she’s ever met.

It doesn’t help that the children are under the care of their brooding older brother, Italian ex-motorcycle racer Desiderio Larosa. Darkly handsome and oh-so-mysterious, Derio tests Amber’s patience and will at every turn—not to mention her hormones.

But when her position as teacher turns into one as full-time nanny at the crumbling old villa, Amber finds herself growing closer to the enigmatic recluse and soon has to choose between the safety of her life back in the States and the uncertainty of Derio’s closely guarded heart.


Purchasing Racing the Sun by Karina Halle on Amazon!

4 Stars

Throw in a moody and hot Italian motorcycle racer with a big heart that just needs a little push, then you've got a hit book (at least for me!). 

Desiderio Larosa is a handsome, mysterious and a former racer, whose life changed in an instant. He's left to raise his two little twin siblings after losing their parents. The Larosa family is known around the Capri as being full of life, but after the accident, this family goes in seclusion and becomes more mysterious when the older brother, Derio has guardinship to raise his two little twin siblings.  He's a ex-professional racer that has his own fears to overcome.

Derio needs help and seeks out a English speaking tutor for the little ones. In comes Amber MacLean. Amber is an American who has been traveling abroad for months trying to figure out who she is. But backpacking overseas has left her little funds and she needs to find cash quick. That's when she sees the ad for the tutor. 

Amber accepts the tutor position knowing it's going to be a challenge--these kids are still angry and confused over the loss of their parents. And not only does Amber need to deal with the twins, she also needs to deal with the moody older brother, Derio. Amber struggles to teach, but is determined to break through to this family. There is something special she sees in them. 

As her time in Capri and with the family goes on, she eventually breaks down their walls. And her position as a tutor takes a big turn and adjustment for all. The children warm up to her and the mysterious Derio slowly opens up to her. There's an obvious attraction between these two. 

Racing the Sun is another fantastic book by Ms. Halle. I loved Amber's journey to her find place in life and the how the chemistry between these two characters blossomed in this story. Derio was lost and having Amber walk into his life and into the twin's life was something that made me smile to the very end. It's a heartwarming story about discovering love and life on a journey.

ARC Review: The Bourbon Kings (The Bourbon Kings #1) by J.R. Ward

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood delivers the first novel in an enthralling new series set amid the shifting dynamics of a Southern family defined by wealth and privilege—and compromised by secrets, deceit, and scandal.... 

For generations, the Bradford family has worn the mantle of kings of the bourbon capital of the world. Their sustained wealth has afforded them prestige and privilege—as well as a hard-won division of class on their sprawling estate, Easterly. Upstairs, a dynasty that by all appearances plays by the rules of good fortune and good taste. Downstairs, the staff who work tirelessly to maintain the impeccable Bradford facade. And never the twain shall meet.

For Lizzie King, Easterly’s head gardener, crossing that divide nearly ruined her life. Falling in love with Tulane, the prodigal son of the bourbon dynasty, was nothing that she intended or wanted—and their bitter breakup only served to prove her instincts were right. Now, after two years of staying away, Tulane is finally coming home again, and he is bringing the past with him. No one will be left unmarked: not Tulane’s beautiful and ruthless wife; not his older brother, whose bitterness and bad blood know no bounds; and especially not the ironfisted Bradford patriarch, a man with few morals, fewer scruples, and many, many terrible secrets.

As family tensions—professional and intimately private—ignite, Easterly and all its inhabitants are thrown into the grips of an irrevocable transformation, and only the cunning will survive.


Purchase on Amazon. Releases July 28, 2015.
4 Southern Drama-Filled Stars!

Oh the Bradford family--filled with wealth, drama, lies and so many secrets! This is my first read from J.R. Ward (I know! *gasp*) and loved every drama-filled page in this book. And looking forward to more!

The Bradford family took me back to the Dynasty TV days. This family may looked polished and perfect on the outside, but behind closed doors in Easterly, this family is one big ole' Southern hot mess! This family is filled with so many lies that it was hard to keep track of who to believe. 

The main couple, Lizzie and Lane, had their fair share of misunderstandings and heartbreak. Lizzie King, works as head gardener at Easterly. She is a hard-worker, sweet, tries to the do the right thing and ends up falling in love with Lane. Lane is one of the sons of this family. He's clearly rich, handsome and fell hard for Lizzie. Until secrets and deceit tore these two apart. 

Couple of years later, Lane is back and hasn't once stop loving Lizzie. And here's the hiccup--he's married (but hey, it's not what you think!). This wife of his is one piece of work. Throughout this book, Lane tries to win Lizzie back and begs her to listen to the truth. But of course, family drama tends to get in the way of their HEA (but don't fear they get one at the very end!). 

The one character who I thought stole this book and cannot wait to read more, is Lane's sister, Gin. Talk about a mess! Her life is so dramatic and sad, I want to know more about her and Samuel T. 

Overall, The Bourbon Kings is filled with plenty of angst, and again so much drama. The characters of this family is so well-written, you really feel each of their burden. This book leaves you hanging and wanting to know what will happen next, but honestly, it's not a huge cliffhanger. There is a HEA for the main couple, but I just know their HEA will not there just yet and can't wait for the next installment of this series.

Blog Tour Stop: Burn (Bayonet Scars #5) by J.C. Emery

Tragedy cuts deep. Revenge burns deeper.

The blood of their enemies coats the leather of their cuts and a trail of bodies lie in their wake, but the Forsaken Motorcycle Club isn't done yet. Carlo Mancuso still needs to pay for his sins. Nobody knows that more than Ian Buckley, the Treasurer for Forsaken.

Ian prefers his pleasure mixed with pain and he's only ever at peace when he's doling out justice. Convinced that he's too unstable and sadistic to take an old lady, he keeps his trysts, like all of his relationships, brief and anonymous. But with his club at war, and the stakes being so personal, Ian's feeling the events around him more deeply than he expects.

Mindy Mercer is the sweet daughter of Fort Bragg’s most respectable cop. At least that’s how the town sees her. Very few people know the Mindy who hides her tracks and battles her cravings by lying to everyone around her. She thinks she has control of her addiction until she suffers an attack that leaves her searching for a way out of her own personal hell.

Mindy has never been more desperately in need of a savior and Ian has never seen a more beautifully destroyed creature in his life. Their attraction is intense, but their damage is extreme. Some scars never heal, and some people never get better.

Love is never more painful than when it can kill you.

Purchase Burn on Amazon!


4 Stars
Here's a hint before you start this fantastic book...refresh your mind with all the past characters and their story line, because it can get a tad bit confusing when you start Mindy and Ian's heart wrenching story! But once you familiarize yourself what happened in last few books, Burn is a real page-turner!

I loved seeing a "caring" side of Ian. It's the most you're going to get out of this man! He's still much mysterious and brooding throughout most of this book. He carries a lot of baggage and anger, but spending time with Mindy slowly breaks that down. And Mindy, my gosh my heart broke for her. The traumatic suffering that she went through years ago still haunts her everyday day. She's broken and the only little hope she has in an attempted recovery is Ian.

Ian spends every day with Mindy--even though its nothing more than sitting in a room with her and not talking. Just this act, helps Melinda get through the day. And it also helps Ian, even though he tries to fight it. He's fiercely protective of her, but knows he is not good for her.

Burn takes you through an emotional roller coaster that you just hope that both Ian and Mindy can find peace and happiness with each other. It's not easy and there are plenty of darkness and scars that these two need to overcome, but getting a HEA for them at the end did make it worth it! Always looking forward to this series.

“You ride?”

I shake my head. He turns his face toward mine and waits as though I haven’t answered him. Maybe he thinks I haven’t. I guess I’ve been silent too long because he squeezes my hand and continues to stare at me with searching eyes. I shake my head again and this time he sees it and nods his head in return. He drops my hand and climbs on his bike. He nudges the kickstand up and holds the bike upright. He has a helmet in his outstretched hand.

“Wear this, then climb on like I did and place your feet here,” he says and points to a cylindrical black peg that juts out of the bike. “Don’t drop your feet and let your body lean into the turns.”

He’s patient with me as I stand here and psych myself up. I’ve had maybe a fantasy or two about a sexy man on a motorcycle, but until Ian it was just that—a passing fantasy that went as quickly as it came.

With his pointer finger, he summons me forward and sets the helmet on the tank between his legs. His eyes aren’t kind exactly and they’re not dark and sexy. They’re something else that I’m desperate to place, but can’t. I close the distance between us and stand before him. Slowly, he reaches out and brushes a lock of hair from my face and tucks it behind my ear.

“Tell me where you’re at,” he says quietly. He tucks my hair behind my other ear as well. I let out a soft, unintentional sigh. I barely hear the question—or order rather—and instead have all my attention focused on his touch. Being able, and even wanting, to be touched is such a wonder. “Tell me I help.”

There’s such a vulnerability about him in this moment as his fingers lightly weave through my messy hair and he’s asking for reassurance. My breath halts in my lungs. I both loathe and love the sound of his plea. I didn’t even know he was capable of this. Ian is always so strong for me that I think I sometimes forget that he’s human.

“I need you.”

ARC Review: Kick Push (The Road #2) by Jay McLean

There’s a single defining moment within every skater.
It lasts only a second. Two if you're good.
Three if you’re really good.
It’s the moment you’re in the air, your board somewhere beneath you, and nothing but wind surrounds you.
It’s the feeling of being airborne.

The sixteen-year-old version of me would’ve said it was the greatest feeling in the world.
Then at seventeen, I had my son.
And every single second became a defining moment. Even the ones that consisted of heartbreak when his mother left us.

Seventeen. Single. Dad.
That’s what my life became.
Yet, every day, I managed to find that feeling of being airborne.
Or at least I convinced myself I did.
But I lied—to myself and to everyone around me.
Until she showed up; Tanned skin, raven dark hair, and eyes the color of emeralds.

You know what sucks about being in the air?
Coming down from the high.
Sometimes you land on the board and nail the trick.
Then kick, push, and coast away.
Other times you fall.
You fall hard.
And those are the times when it’s not as easy to get back up, dust off your pads and try again.
Especially when the girl with the emerald eyes becomes your drug...
And you become her poison.

There's no doubt how much I'm in love with Ms. McLean and her books. I was hooked with her More series--she did give me Logan Matthews! And now with this upcoming release, Kick Push, she has given me a new love for Joshua Warden and his son, Tommy. Josh is a fighter and one of the best single Dads written. He may be young, but he is a real man.

Kick Push brought out so many emotions: laughter, smiles, heartbreak, more heartbreak and lots of love. There is nothing more than to say this is one of my favorite reads for 2015. To sum up this book and without any spoilers: 

I'm always looking forward for more from this fantastic author!

ARC Review: Playing with Trouble (Capital Confessions #2) by Chanel Cleeton

The author of Flirting with Scandal presents her second book in a sexy contemporary romance series about three sisters in a powerful political family, the scandals that threaten to destroy them, and the passion that drives them…

The daughter of one of the Senate's most powerful figures, Blair Reynolds was ready to become the ultimate political wife—until she caught her fiancé cheating on her wedding day. Law school is a fresh start, her shot at putting the pieces of her life back together. That’s the plan, at least. Until trouble comes in the form of her Torts professor, the man whose arrogance infuriates her in class but haunts her private fantasies. 

Graydon Canter had a fortune and a place on all the hottest "Thirty under Thirty” lists, until a series of personal missteps nearly destroyed his career. A year teaching at a D.C. law school is just the break he needs to get his life back in order, as long as nothing—and no one—trips him up.

When Blair and Gray are forced to work together, their explosive attraction becomes impossible to resist. But Gray’s demons have drawn him dangerously close to the edge, and Blair has spent her life playing by the rules. Will she break them for a shot at love?

4 Stars

The mysterious Capital Confession Blogger is back and ready to spill more dirty secrets. And this time, the focus is on the Reynolds family.

Scandal has rocked the Nation's Capital in the last book and it's spilled into this read! Senator Reynold's affair has ripped his family apart. His daughters, Blair and Kate are angry how their father hid the affair and their half-sister, Jackie. 

But scandal just didn't stop at the Senator. Blair's life turned public when her fiance was caught cheating on her on her wedding day! So after running out on her wedding and trying to figure out her life, Blair enrolls into law school.

But law school is cut out for her and her new (did I mention HOT) professor Graydon Canter doesn't make it easier for her. Graydon had it all: upcoming and coming powerful lawyer, money and just living large. Until a series of events that caused his world come crashing down. He moves to D.C. to start over and finding a year-long teaching gig at a law school is what Graydon needs to start over.

That's until Blair Reynolds walked into his classroom. 

Playing with Trouble takes you though the ups and down of Blair and Gray. The attraction between these two is intense, but with their past baggage keeps holding them back. Blair has been following rules her entire life and taking a chance with Gray seems like the perfect way to break from the mold and for her to find happiness. But can she break down his walls? 

Playing With Trouble is another fantastic read with plenty of angst, surprises, and lots of hotness between these two characters. I can't wait for the next installment with Kate, Blair's sister. Also, it was great getting a little more on Jackie and Will!

Blog Tour Stop: Bleeding Love (Hope Town #2) by Harper Sloan

I've loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day. 

Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again. 

Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face. 

He's on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.

*Bleeding Love is the second book in the Hope Town series. It will follow Liam and Megan. Each book in the series is a HEA and can be read as a standalone.*

“Last chance,” he tells me with a wicked grin.  “And this time I mean last one, darlin’.  We take this step and make no doubt about it, you will be mine.  You give me this and I fucking promise you that I will never make you regret taking that step.  You ready to jump from that chapter you’ve been skimming through and skip into mine?”

I give him a smile, one that is full of confidence and not the least bit unsure as the words that he had told me weeks before come back between us.

“I’m ready.”

“Fuck,” he groans.  “Buckle up, baby.”

My smile doesn’t slip for a second.  Not when I pull my belt across my chest.  Not when he slams the door and races to his own.  It grows wider when he slams the truck in drive and fishtails back onto the path that will take us back toward town.  It isn’t until his big hand reaches out and takes my leg in his strong hold that my smile slips slightly, but it only slips because my head falls back and I whimper and try to rub my legs together to ease the ache between them.  I lose the smile completely when my mouth drops open and that whimper turns into a loud whine as his long fingers dance up my legs until he slips beneath the hem on my shorts and pushes my panties to the side, pressing against my clit in sure movements that have me panting in seconds.

“Fucking drenched,” he grounds out through his tightly clamped teeth.
I roll my head against the headrest and look across the cab at his face.  His finger dips from my swollen clit and as he drops his hand lower, his wrist twists slightly so that when he gets there his finger slides deep inside me.

My legs spread instantly when his thick finger fills me and I hear his rumbled groan fill the space around us as he slides his finger as deep as his position allows before pulling it back, then repeating his movements until I can feel myself soaking his hand.  If he keeps this up, I won’t last.  He adds a second finger and my hand digs into the door and I reach out, wrapping my other around his forearm and choke on shattered breaths when he thrusts his fingers so deep, I feel like I’ve been electrocuted as he hits that spot that has me panting, whimpering and begging incoherently.

“Please, Lee, please,” I pant.  How I formed those words, I’ll never know.
“Fuck,” he snarls, the sound making my arousal spike even higher.  “You’ll call me that when I’m so deep inside you my balls will be soaked with this sweetness.”
His fingers curl and I pant, my hand cramping around the force of my grip.
“Please, oh God.  Not without you, please.”

I pray he understands my plea and when he curses, I know he gets me.  His hand leaves my pants and I cry out, causing him to spit out a string of curses that would make a sailor blush.  His leg slams down and I feel the truck pick up speed as I watch him take his fingers to his mouth and lick every drop of my wetness from his skin.
“Holy shit,” I exhale.

“You’re getting my mouth first, darlin’.  That wasn’t enough of a taste and fuck me, I’m starved.”

I say nothing, just continue to feel like my heart is about to slam from my chest as I continue to shift my legs back and forth in attempt to ease the burn he’s lit between my legs.

Blog Tour Stop: Revived (Revved #2) by Samantha Towle

India Harris didn’t have the best start in life. Abandoned as a baby, she and her twin brother, Kit, spent their lives in foster care, only having each other to rely on. Then, at a young age, a relationship with the wrong man left India pregnant. Wanting to give her son the life she never had, she put herself through school and graduated with honors. 

Now, at the age of thirty, she’s a highly respected therapist.

At the top of his game as a Formula One driver, Leandro Silva had everything—until an accident on the track left him staring death in the face. After enduring twelve months of physical therapy, Leandro is now physically able to race, but his mind is keeping him from the track. Frustrated and angry, Leandro’s days and nights are filled with limitless alcohol and faceless women. 

Entering the last year of his contract, he knows he has to race again, or he’ll lose everything he spent his life working for. Forced into therapy to get his life back, Leandro finds himself in the office of Dr. India Harris.

Falling for his uptight therapist is not part of Leandro’s plan. 

Having unethical feelings for her patient, the angry Brazilian race car driver, is not part of India’s plan. 

But what if the wrong person is the only person who is right?


4 Stars

India Harris is one female book character to really look up to. She's been dealt sour lemons in her life, but she was determined to make the best of her situation. And she did! Growing up in a group home, with her her twin, Kit, India doesn't let anyone or any situation from stopping her to do what is right. Unfortunately being naive and exposed, she ends up becoming a teen mom. 

So take make it right and give her son the best life, she moves forwards and becomes Dr. India Harris years later. Kit her twin brother has been there all along and helped her raise her son, Jett.

We met hot race card driver, Leandro Silva in the first book. But after a horrific accident on the track, it left him scared to get behind the wheel again. Even though he's 100% recovered physically from his injuries, he's mentally not ready. So what does he end up doing to "recover"? Spends his time drinking, sleeping with multiple women and not getting in the driver's seat. 

With his contract on jeopardy, it's time for Leandro to get help. That's when he's introduced to Dr. Harris. A highly respectable therapist that was referred to him by Andie. 

The attraction between these two is hot and instant. But knowing that she can lose her doctor license, India tries to stay clear from Leandro. And it doesn't help that Leandro takes to her son fast. 

Dancing around their attraction, India and Harris face many obstacles throughout this book. They both needed to figured out if their career is something to risk, while they explore this relationship.

Revved is a fun, quick and steamy read that is sure to keep you turning the very end. And I loved the ending--a fantastic epilogue that gives these two more a HEA!

My eyes move to the magazines on the table. A sports mag is peeking out from under the fashion mags. Leaning forward, I pull it out, instantly wishing I hadn’t.
On the cover of the magazine is a picture of me with the caption, What the Bad Side of Formula 1 Looks Like.
So, now, I’m the bad side of Formula 1. Good to know.
I already know what the media say about me. How I’ve turned from a great racer into a drunk and a whore.
They’re not wrong on the whore part. Well, whore is a bit harsh. I don’t charge for my services. And I wouldn’t say I’m a drunk. I just like to drink—a lot.
I shouldn’t read the article. I know this, but the sadistic part of me has me turning those pages.
Finding the article, eyes scanning the text, I pick out the usual shit.
Why is Silva no longer racing? Physically, he’s healthy. Is it mental problems? Fear over racing because of his accident? Is that why he drinks—drowning his misery in alcohol? Such a shame to see a once great driver fall from grace so dramatically.
Frustration and rage grip my chest like a vise.
Fuck this. I don’t need this shit.
Even though I can’t race, it’s not like I actually need to.
I don’t need to race. I just need to drink and fuck. That’s all I need now. All I will ever need.
I’m a liar and a chickenshit. And that’s why I’m sitting in the waiting room to see a therapist.
Maybe I am beyond help.
Tossing the magazine back onto the table, I get to my feet, ready to leave this place, just as the door opens, revealing the epitome of what I could really do with screwing right now.
My eyes trail up the tanned, toned legs to the fitted pencil skirt that I would happily hitch up to see the magnificent pussy that I bet lies beneath. A pale-pink blouse is tucked into that skirt, covering what looks like a fantastically sized pair of tits. Silky blonde hair sits on her shoulders. Hair that I would enjoy getting my hands all tangled in while I fuck those bright red lips of hers, enjoying seeing that lipstick smeared all over my cock.
My dick pulses in my jeans, more than ready to proposition her with the offer.
“Mr. Silva.” She steps forward. “I’m Dr. Harris. But please call me India.”
She’s Dr. Harris?
This hitch-your-skirt-up-and-let-me-fuck-you-right-now woman is my new therapist.
Well, that’s just fucking great. It’s not like I can bang my therapist.

I put my cock on hold and give her my best smile, the one that always has panties dropping to the floor, as I say, “And you can call me Leandro.”
