THE MISBEHAVED
Jessica Jayne
Released May 10th, 2016
Totally Bound


Natalea Jones has had a rough life. An absentee father. A gambling addicted mother, who seems to show up only when she needs something—preferably money. Natalea survives her childhood and teenage years because of her best friend, Drake Harte, and his family. Even though she’s been in love with Drake for years, she refuses to let her lust come in the way of their friendship. Life without Drake is not possible and sex would certainly complicate things.

Drake Harte is not only known as the most eligible bachelor and firefighter in Gamble Park, Florida, but he’s also known for sexing the ladies and leaving them. Only he knows the reason he can’t make a commitment to the women throwing themselves at him—he’s in love with his best friend. It’s time he either goes for it or moves on.

After Natalea and Drake share a night of passion, an unexpected event occurs that proves to both of them that life—and love—are too precious.

Or what? Was his firecracker of a best friend challenging him? He may have gotten off his twenty-four-hour shift at the firehouse mere minutes ago, but he was always ready to rumble with Natalea. Her honey-colored eyes gleamed with the familiar twinkle she had every single time they provoked each other. She loved it as much as he did.
Damn!
He loved everything about her. She was a whole lot wrapped up in a five-foot-three package. She was beautiful—beautiful in a way that wasn’t cover model, but real. Sweet. Caring. Honest. Strong. Stronger than anyone he knew. Her life hadn’t been easy.
He exhaled a laugh before dropping the towel and placing his hands on the bar top. Having spent as much time as he had in The Misbehaved, he knew exactly how much space he had to clear before he’d be on the ground on the other side. He pushed off with his feet on the stool rungs and slammed it to the ground with a bang as he propelled himself over. He landed with a thud on the black rubber floor mat. Heads swiveled in their direction.
Natalea yelped and dropped the towel. She spun on her heels and dashed to get away from him. He swung his arm around her waist and jerked her flush against him. The feel of her softness against the rigid planes of his body made a groan bubble up in his chest. He bit it off.
He hoisted her over his shoulder and wandered out onto the floor. Her lush breasts pressed against him and made his cock twitch to life in his jeans. Her legs flailed in the air, her black work boots thudding against his abdomen. She may have been small, but she was mighty. He’d give her that. As the thought entered his mind, her teeth sank into his lower back muscles through his T-shirt.
“Ow,” he cried, surprised by her bite. “Watch it, baby girl. You know better than to walk this tough-girl path with me. It never ends well for you.”
She grunted and groaned at his words. Several of the male patrons hooted and hollered. 
“Nice legs,” one of the guys standing by the pool table shouted. A few whistles followed and Drake realized what the fuss was about. Her already scant jean shorts had ridden up her legs, exposing all of her thighs, maybe more. Despite the crowd being predominantly female, the few males made themselves quite vocal.
A wave of possessiveness flowed over him. He didn’t like that the guys were gawking at her ass poised in the air, and at her tan, muscular legs draped over his shoulder. Legs he’d fantasized about encircling his hips as he buried himself inside her. That fantasy had recurred on numerous occasions over the last decade.
Yes, he pined after his best friend. Had for years. Whenever she was around, he popped a perpetual boner. He also needed to protect her, which pretty much ruined any chance she had for a relationship with anyone else. No one—and he meant no one—was good enough for her.

goodreads-badge-add-38px Slater Everything I believed was a lie. Everything except for her, the one person I blamed for it all. MacKayla Simone was beautiful. She was sexy as hell. She was also the setup. One night. Sex that rocked my world. Rocked it to its very foundations because the next thing I knew, she and I made the headlines of every paper, every news channel across the country, and it cost me everything. But that wasn’t the worst of it. That came when I learned who was behind the setup. That was when I understood what it meant to be destroyed absolutely. I don’t know why I went after MacKayla. She’d been a pawn just like me. But it was all I could do, all I had left. Hell, it was the one thing keeping me from tumbling into the abyss and never coming back into the light. Find her. Find the girl who’d f*cked me. Find her, and make her pay. MacKayla I didn’t know who Slater Vaughn was, but if I had, it wouldn’t have mattered. Not when my sister was in trouble. I would have done what I did anyway. You can judge me. You can call me a whore. But I would have done it anyway. One night, they’d said. Make him want you, let him have you. Easiest money in the world for just one night of my life. Only it wasn’t one night because that night obliterated Slater Vaughn, and he came after me. He told me I owed him, and truthfully, I did. Hell, maybe those years in hiding, I’d been waiting for him to find me. To punish me. To make me pay. Maybe I sought his forgiveness all along. But now that he had me, how far would he take this game? Slater Vaughn was a broken man. He had nothing left to lose. What was to keep him from taking me with him into his darkness?

Title: The Bad Boy’s Goodness
Series: The Bad Boys of Regret Hollow #4
Author: Sara Daniel
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 10, 2016
Format: Digital

Blurb:
Just once, straight-laced teacher Bethany Wilkerson wants to make love with a man who’s not a dud in bed. When she finally meets the perfect man, he turns her down. Humiliated, she studiously avoids him for months…until she’s stranded at his house during an ice storm.
Ken Hawkins might have cleaned up on the outside, but on the inside he’s still a bad boy from the ghetto who will never be good enough for Bethany. Keeping his distance is a lot easier when she’s not parading through his house wearing nothing but his sweatshirt. No matter how hard he tries to reform, he’s not a saint.
The more Ken tries to convince her of his rotten core, the more Bethany believes in his innate goodness. But until she can convince him to believe in himself, he will continue to push her out of his life.


Excerpt:

“Good thing I can cook.”
Surprise and pleasure lit up her face. “You can? Let me get the laundry started, and I’ll help you.”
“Sounds like a plan,” he choked out, fisting his hands at his sides to avoid hauling her to him for a branding kiss. With a flight or two of stairs separating them, he might have a prayer of resisting her.
After she turned away and her footsteps faded down the stairs, he stripped out of his business casual clothes into the cruddiest sweats and T-shirt he owned. If she saw him dressed like someone she’d cross the street to avoid, maybe she’d treat him the same way and he’d remember to keep his distance.
A few minutes later, he stood in the kitchen pulling chicken breasts from the refrigerator. Her footsteps marched up the stairs from the laundry room. Stay cool. Stay calm. Stay far away from temptation.
“Ken.”
Closing the fridge, he straightened and faced her. His sweatshirt hung down her shoulders, ridiculously long and baggy as he’d hoped, but then stopped far too high on her smooth, pale thighs. Why the hell hadn’t he offered her some pants? “What?” he snarled.
She stepped back, her smile faltering. Yes damn it, she should be scared of him. Her mother had been right to warn her away. “Do you have any laundry you want me to add to the load?”
“No!” She’d been in his house for all of five minutes. She was supposed to be his guest, not his live-in partner.
“The clothes you were wearing earlier need to be washed, right?”
“I’ll do it another time.” When she wasn’t standing in front of him, turning his boring sweatshirt into an X-rated fantasy, leaving him begging to trail his lips down her bare legs.
“It’s no trouble. My load is so small, running it as is doesn’t seem worth it.” Ignoring his answer, she headed up the stairs.
Ken reached into the freezer and pulled out a handful of ice. Rubbing it around his neck, he hoped the chill would creep south in a hurry. Maybe he should lie down in the road for an hour or two. His body heat would melt the ice all the way to Wisconsin.
She had no freaking idea what she did to him. Meanwhile, his sweatpants clearly displayed the evidence. She wouldn’t remain blind to it if he didn’t get the rest of his body to follow his brain’s blaring reminder that she was pure, innocent, and completely off-limits.
