Have you ever had your heart broken? Reece Jackson has, and he uses a peculiar kink to avoid intimacy. When the girl he’s always loved walks back into his life, will he be able to let his walls down?
RELEASING JULY 14
She was forbidden.
I didn’t care.
As my best friend’s little sister, Macey Hale was
off-limits, but the girl was tempting as sin and forbidden as fuck. I wish I
could say that stopped me. I wish I could tell you I behaved like a gentleman.
When she waltzes back into my life with that same spark I
fell for, looking every bit the beautiful woman I knew she’d grow into, I have
to force myself to remember I’m different from the man she once knew. I’m
colder. Harder. And for good reason.
With my heart on lockdown and my hands aching to touch her,
I set out to prove that I can keep myself in check this time.
No strings. No attachments.
And definitely no falling for her again.
If you love steamy romance, you won't want to miss this
older brother's best friend romance.
This is book two in
the Lessons with the Dom series, following The Gentleman Mentor. Both are
complete standalone novels featuring sexy Dominant men you're sure to fall in
"What do you think you’re doing?” I find her in my closet,
down on her knees and rummaging through a black duffel bag that just happens to
hold all my sex toys. Apparently she did see this when she cleaned up.
“Ah, here we go.” Her fingers close around a generously sized
flesh-colored vibrating dildo. “You won’t do the job? Well, I have a feeling
this baby will.” She waves it in the air like she’s found the damn golden
ticket. Then she rises to her feet and smiles sweetly at me.
For the love of God, this woman does not fight fair. She
never has. “Where do you think you’re going with that?”
“Probably my bed, then the shower.” A line creases her
forehead. “Do you have spare batteries for this thing? It might be a long
“No way. Not happening. Give me the toy, Macey.” I reach out
a hand, my voice as stern as the set of my jaw, my fingers barely avoiding
crushing the crystal tumbler in my other hand.
A slow smile uncurls on her mouth. “Why, Reece Jackson, are
you jealous?” She eyes the toy in her hand and then lets her gaze slip
seductively down to the crotch of my pants.
If she really thinks that toy’s size has me feeling
insecure, she’s insane. Certifiably. “You really don’t remember, do you?” Now
I’m the one smiling. She’ll be in for a pleasant surprise later.
“I remember everything. I remember how you always made me
keep my underwear on, and that I never actually saw you”—her gaze flicks
downward—”down there. I only felt you with my hand, and since I had nothing to
base it on, I assumed all guys were like that.”
“Well, in that case, you’ll be sorely disappointed with this
toy.” I snatch the dildo from her hand and toss it back in the open bag.
“What do you think you’re doing?” she asks, planting a hand
on her hip. “You left me hanging at the restaurant.”
“And you will stay like that until I say so.”
He calls himself the Gentleman Mentor.
He promises to teach me the art of seduction … and show me the most sinfully erotic pleasures. He’s going to help me become the kind of confident, sexy woman men can’t ignore.
Six lessons … with the most gorgeous man … who happens to be a Dom.
The only problem … now that I’ve experienced his brand of delectable domination will anyone else ever compare?
She’s a client. That’s all.
Or it should be.
But with every lesson, she’s becoming more.
The secrets I’m hiding behind the image of the Gentleman Mentor make telling her the truth—and having anything real—impossible.
I’m training her for another man, and that fact guts me every time I think of it.
I know she’s not mine … but part of me won’t accept that.
Am I willing to risk it all to keep her?
