Excerpt from Chapter 1.

Unedited. © 2016 Lyra Parish.

Tonight I would fuck the blonde in the front row who continued to visually rip my clothes off with every little blink she took. Her tits were hanging out of her shirt and she licked her lips and batted her eyes at me. The set was nearing the end and I could feel her gaze. When I looked away and back at her, it was like her eyes had never left me. I liked when a woman knew what she wanted.

Blue and green lights flashed over the stage then washed across the crowd. When we made eye contact again, her tongue traced the outside of her plump bottom lip and at that moment I knew she was DTF. Her being down to fuck made this so much easier but then again, being the lead singer of the Band of Brothers made panties magically melt. I'd be her fantasy for the night. I'm sure there would be many more one night stands considering each show from Florida to New York, all the way to California was sold out.

The drums beat on as I screamed out the next few lyrics. "I won't let the world decide. I'll die before that happens."

The drums stopped and the distortion was cut leaving a melodic strum of Nikolas's guitar.

The lights faded when walked off stage leaving the crowd screaming and yelling at the top of their lungs. Jex, Nic, and Rex had huge smiles covering their faces as they chugged the water the technicians handed us. This would never get old. Moments like this were the ones we lived and worked for. Once the chanting and clapping rose to the maximum volume, the four of us walked back onstage and gave the fans what they wanted, an encore.

Green and yellow lights flashed over the crowd and smoke hovered at the bottom of the stage. We played three more songs. People sang and swayed to the lyrics and music. Some jumped up and down, feeling the full beat of the drums while others banged their heads. The feeling of having thousands of people chanting my words would never become real. More often than not, I felt like I was in a dream, one that I never wanted to wake from.

During the last song, I pointed to the blonde. By the way she was dressed in a tight pink shirt and a skirt that showed the bottom of her ass cheeks, I knew she wanted to be seen. She could have possibly had this night planned from the beginning. Randomly, I chose a few others from the crowd to join us, to dance in front of our audience, to feel the temporary power. It was something I did every show, every tour. It was a habit of sorts.

Security helped the girls climb on the stage and they lifted their arms and shook their asses. Before the song ended, the technicians led the girls' side stage as cannons of small fireworks shot from the floor. After the final song, my brothers and played the crowd and threw drumsticks and guitar picks. The yelling didn't stop for minutes and the audience realized we weren't coming back out. I walked side stage where girls anxiously waited us. I smiled, popping an eyebrow at my chosen woman for the night, and she instantly came to me. I wrapped my arm around her shoulder and hers hung on my waist. My brothers stopped in the green room with the other girls, but Blondie and I walked to the bus.

"I'm Lindsey," she whispered in my ear before we reached the end of the hallway. I smiled at her and pushed open the exit door. Groupies and fans waited near the bus and as soon as we walked up they rushed it.

"I'll be out in a bit," I said, smiling at them with pearly whites. "My brothers are coming out that door over there. Really soon."

I hated to out their exit strategy, but I wanted to take my time burying my dick deep inside Misty or Christy or whatever the fuck her name was. It didn't matter. Names never did.

5 Star Debut~Tempting by Alex Lucian


His body climbing over mine. 

My teeth biting his neck. 

His scent on my skin. 

My nails carving a path down his back. 

His commands whispered in my ear. 

All of my senses filled with him. 

I knew it was bad. But I craved more. 

It had begun innocently enough, bumping into one another in a crowded Boston bar. What followed that night had been anything but innocent. 

Because I'd known, even as he'd slid inside of me, that he was my professor. I'd pursued him, a predator stalking its prey. 

And he didn't know I was his student. 

But he would. 

I had no idea that Tempting 
was Alex Lucian's first book, 
cause holy hell was this an exciting ride. Everything worked for me. 
The writing was excellent 
and captured me from the first page. 
The story was interesting. 
But the gold star goes to the characters, 
who were flawed 
and had many layers to them.
I have to admit that Adele 
annoyed me at first. 
It was a little off putting the way she kept chasing Nathan, even though He said no,
 it was irritating as hell. 
But I knew there had to be 
a good reason for her behavior. 
Off course there was
 and that made me see Adele
 in a different light, 
it even made me respect her more.
Nathan was an interesting and broken man. 
I thoroughly enjoyed how Adele 
ignited the fire back within him. 
Cause damn, did Nathan have a lot of bottled up inside of him. 
It was exciting and sexy as fuck to watch 
and feel these two souls 
collide and create FIRE. 
I loved how they teased and
 "played" games with one another. 
But also how they slowly started 
to need and want each other 
for different reasons
 besides just raw sex.
I'm so glad that I took a chance on this book. The blurb captured me 
and I wasn't let down. 
On the contrary, I was happily surprised
 and now I can't wait to read 
the next books in this series. 
This was one hell of a debut
 from Alex Lucian. 
Now I want Leo's story!

4.5 Stars~The Score (Off-Campus Book 3) by Elle Kennedy

Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn’t have the first clue about what she's going to do after college. To make matters worse, she’s nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di-Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won’t include the king of one-night stands. 

It’ll take more than flashy moves to win her over 

Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition, girls…he’s a ladies man, all right, and he’s yet to meet a woman who’s immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire world—and now she wants to be friends? Nope. It’s not over until he says it’s over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it’s time to stop focusing on scoring…and shoot for love.

This was just what I needed. 
A feel good book, 
that made me smile and swoon. 
The Score delivered on all fronts. 
I was a little apprehensive about it, 
since I was a little disappointed
 with The Mistake, but I thoroughly enjoyed The Score, thanks to the amazing group of people this series is blessed with.
Garrett has always been my favorite 
but I have to say, that Dean is giving him a run for his money. 
I didn't pay much attention to Dean 
in The Deal, so I kind of forgot about his manwhore ways. 
But they came back in a heartbeat, when I got reintroduced to him in The Score. 
I actually didn't mind his sex in head behavior, because I knew there was so much more to this dude. 
Elle Kennedy didn't disappoint me.
Allie who was also introduced in The Deal was just fantastic. 
I liked her even more now. 
Such a fun and uninhibited woman who's very comfortable in her own body.
These two together worked perfectly. 
I didn't know what to expect 
but I was really surprised. 
They had spunk and humor 
and made each other shine. 
When it comes to the sexually chemistry
 it was off the charts.
 Holy crap! 
Not only was Dean a frisky 
and naughty boy, 
so was Allie!!!
This was such a wonderful
 and humorous book. 
I really enjoy this Off-Campus series. 
Mainly because of these fabulous characters. There's so much heart
 and love between them. 
They're each other's family 
and that's why I love these 
people and their stories.

“I made you a promise, Charlie.” Mark’s already deep voice is layered with desire.
Once again, my control begins to slip. “What’s that?”
His hands drop a little lower beside my head. His lower body shifts so his knee is between my legs. I feel his arousal against my thigh.
My traitorous body shows its own awakening. My nipples hardening through the silk material don’t go unnoticed. Heat pools in my core and my breath hitches. I want him. There’s no use denying it.
“I told you I’d kiss you again. If you don’t stop me now, there’s no getting away.”
I should stop him. I need to stop him. There’s no way in hell it’s going to happen, though. I’m craving his lips again.
He gives me one second before he crushes his mouth against mine. His entire body shifts forward, and now I’m trapped. There’s nowhere to go. Nowhere to move that’s not Mark. He takes every part of my mind and body. Our hands roam each other as his tongue slides against mine. Passion ignites between us; it sets the room on fire. His fingers cup my neck and then glide down the front of my dress. His hand brands my skin as he takes his time exploring the open skin between us.
My fingers grip the lapels of his tux, holding him, molding him to me. I can’t get close enough. Our mouths stay fused as we both lose control.
Then my mind snaps.
I push back and my hands fly to my lips. They’re swollen, bruised from the force of the kiss. His hands brace against the wall. I keep my eyes downcast. I can’t believe I just did that, against the damn wall, at a ball commemorating my father.
I shift my dress, rake my fingers through my hair, and pull myself together.
“Charlie . . .” Mark finally speaks. It sounds like shouting even though it’s only loud enough for us to hear.
“That was the last time that will ever happen,” I say with no tremor to my voice. “Tonight we become partners. It’s not about whatever this is.” I shift my hands between us. “It’s about finding the information we’re both searching for.”
“And what if we find something else?”
“We shut it down. There’s no room for feelings in this world.”
Mark pushes back, giving me space. I instantly feel cold. “Okay, then. Have it your way.”
This is what I wanted, what we both need, but suddenly I wish it wasn’t. I wish I could pull him close, kiss him, fuck him, and just feel.
But wishes are for little girls.

What I love about Corinne Michaels' writing is her ability to capture me with her likable and relatable characters 
and her thrilling storytelling.

Reading Defenseless was no exception and knowing her characters from her previous books only made me enjoy it even more. 
I was very much entertained. 
There's so much personality and 
love in Mark and Charlie. 
Also let's not forget the others. 
Jackson, Catherine, Liam and Natalie too. 
It was so great to be back with these people.

Mark and Charlie were so much fun!!! 
Their bantering was sweet 
and I could easily feel the sexual tension. They have a lot in common 
when it comes
 to their occupation but emotionally 
they're totally opposite. 
Mark is very open whereas 
Charlie rarely lets anyone inside.
 I was very intrigued by that and couldn't wait for Mark to break down Charlie's walls. 
Their relationship was like fireworks.
and dangerous at the same time. 
They definitely had no problem showing how much they wanted one another. 
It was smoldering and insanely hot.

What made me want to read 
Defenseless was the characters. 
They made not only this book work, 
but also the four previously.
 I felt like I was part of a huge family and that's all because of Corrine Michaels. 
She knows her characters and I certainly hope this isn't the last I've heard of them.
