"Have you heard the saying, 'sex sells'? Well, I'm the supplier." 

Finnley Felton sells sex.
Jennifer Downs is a virgin.
With the help of lady luck, the two meet.

Money. Bright lights. Sex.

Jennifer is made an offer: sell her virginity to the highest bidder and transform into one of Finnley's girls. But she finds herself weak for him, and doesn't fully realize what she's agreed to until it's too late.

Will she rise to the challenge and play by the rules in a land where money is king and love is prohibited? Or will she lose herself and values in the attempt?

Weak for him is not considered a "dark" read, but does have unlady-like language, adult subject matter, and s-e-x-ual situations. Weak for Him does not have a cliffhanger. There is resolution but the story does continue on.

My Review:

Weak for Him is a very entertaining, sensual, emotional and additive read that many fans of the genre will enjoy :)

Jennifer has had a dream to move to Vegas for a very long time. Losing both of her parents is just the motivation, or push she needs to make such a HUGE move. She needs to get away from...everything. Too many memories and too much sadness linger within every nook and cranny of her hometown. One roller coaster ride after another. She finds out things about herself and the world around her. Is she really ready for ANY of it? Or did she make a mistake leaving everything she knows behind?

There's a lot more to this story that I refuse to discuss because I do not do spoilers! Just know that right when you think something is going to happen...It doesn't! LOL

This is a great start to a new series. I look forward to what else this author has in store. A 3.5 rounded to a solid 4 rating.

BC Blog Teaser 3 DC Blog Teaser 1 DC Blog Teaser 2
Author L.U. Ann moved to Colorado from the Eastern Shore of Maryland with her husband and two children. Life in Colorado is so much different. In Maryland, you would find her in the garden tending to her vegetables and flowers, sea glass and shark tooth hunting once a week, and enjoying the kids swimming in the backyard. Her life took a drastic change when her family moved to their own “Little House on the Prairie" at an elevation of over 6,000 feet above sea level, and a semi-arid climate that makes it hard to grow anything. While barely anything can grow where she resides now, the wildlife makes up for it. Mountain Lions, and coyotes, and rattlesnakes, oh my!
She tries to spend a little time each day writing, but domestic chores around the house usually take precedence. She would much rather hide them from her husband. She tends to her loving four-legged children who at times become much too demanding when she locks herself in the office. This often results in MORE domestic work, and she finds herself cleaning up after their deviant behavior.
At night, you’ll find her begging the kids to go to bed so that she can catch up on the latest book before her sister can. Yes, she is an avid reader who escapes her chaotic but wonderful home to the feisty depths of romance land in search of her newest book boyfriend. Shh, don’t tell her husband!
She is an artist by the grace of God. She worked as a set designer for six years, helping establish a local children's theatre where she was the scenery artist, set, and prop designer. Before that, you would find her covered in paint, so engrossed in painting a mural that time didn't exist. Graphic design is her guilty pleasure.
Special Note From L.U. Ann
I created this Young Adult Edition to reach a wider audience. Lacey is nineteen years old and finishing high school. The issues she faces are the very issues a teenager could be facing right now, some possibly even younger.
This series deals with heavy life issues. Issues that are real. It may not be for everyone, but it's a reality for so many. I hope you take some valuable information away from reading A Destructive Novel series. If anything, please read the resources found in the back of each book.
Thank you for the opportunity to tell Lacey’s story. My story.

I curse as soon as I see Elizabeth sitting in the waiting room. She obviously misunderstood my rule: never show up at my office. She's a beautiful woman with jet black hair, olive skin, surgically enhanced breasts. I curse myself for the growing hard on I have to deal with now. "What are you doing here?" I asked as I stroll past her without looking back. I walked around my desk and sit in the big brown leather chair. I power up my laptop and go about my day without saying another word to her. Suddenly, I hear her clear her throat from across the room. As I glance up from my desk, I find her standing in my office with nothing but a red lace thong and matching bra, which barely covers her nipples. This has to be a dream! I blink several times to be sure that it’s not. How the fuck did she do that without me seeing her? I never missed a half naked woman...ever! 
I try to swallow the huge lump in my throat and then look to the side to ensure the door was closed before sauntering over to her. I don’t care why she’s here, but I’m glad that she is.
"Well, Well, What did I do to deserve this?” I say as I wrap my palm around the back of her neck and lean in with our lips almost touching. Her breath paused when she gazed into my eyes, and that sent a surge of desire straight to my cock. "I believe I asked you a question, miss.” I say it a little harsher than I mean to, but she knew the rules before we ever hooked up.
She bit her lip and hesitated a moment longer before finally speaking. "Well, I wanted to bring you lunch today…”
I watch as she reaches behind her back and unhooks her bra, letting it fall to the ground. My cock strains against my slacks, begging to be released. I see no reason for more questions; that would come later. Right now there were more pressing items on my agenda. I grasp her upper arms and push her against the wall, causing a loud thud to ring through the room. For a moment, I’m worried that I'd hurt her, but when she moans loudly against my mouth I remember Elizabeth liked rough sex. I’m okay with that; I don't do gentle. There was only one person I’ve ever done gentle with, and that was when I slept with Emma last night. Why am I thinking about Cassie when I have a beautiful woman standing in front of me right now? I slide my hand into her hair and pull hard enough to give myself full access to her neck. I kissed a trail from her jaw line, over her bare shoulder before stopping at her firm breasts.  A low rumble escaped from my throat before taking her pink nipple in my mouth, flicking it with my tongue, and biting the pink pebble, causing her to writhe against me. As I slowly trail my hands down her sides, I grab her hips and lift her to align our bodies and grind into her. I hook my thumb in the small elastic band of her thong and rip it from her body. Our kisses are frantic by now, and our bodies are damp with sweat. I slide a finger into her slick folds, earning a gasp from her pink lips. I slide in and out of her body and circle her clit with my thumb. I can feel her body clamping down on my fingers. I continue to slide my fingers in and out of her body, faster and faster, and just as her release rushed from her body. As her orgasm neared its end, I pinched her clit hard, which causes her body to shudder. I reach into my back pocket for a condom and rip the foil with my teeth. I quickly roll it down my length.
I’m so close that I almost came just from rolling the condom on. I don’t give her body time to adjust as I pound into her, hard and deep; in and out at a frantic pace as if I can't get enough. I went faster and faster until my climax rushed through me like a wave in the ocean with my cock filling the condom with my warm release.
I rest my forehead against hers while I look into her passion hazed eyes, and it suddenly hit me like a ton of bricks...What did I just do? I just had sex in my office with a woman who broke the  rules. I can't believe I let my guard down. What's happening to me?  Since when did I not abide by my own fucking rules?
"You need to leave," I say tersely. I know I’m being an ass, but it is time to deal with the consequences. She stared at me in disbelief. Then she opened her mouth to say something, but quickly closed it.
I  know my client will be arriving soon. How can I explain this?  How can I tell one of my wealthiest clients that I just had a quickie in my office? 
I place my hands on the wall on either side of her body, caging her in and closing the space only mere inches from her face. "You need to leave now. Don't come back. Don't call. Do you understand the rules now?" 

My name is Regina Frame and I live in Alabama with my husband and three dogs. I've always had a love for animals and I work with charities to help raise money for homeless pets. I've been known to carry food in my car and stop on the street to feed an animal. I recently rescued a severely abused dog after trying for two months with no success. He now lives with me and my husband and he is happy and healthy today.

I'm an avid reader of romance and erotica novels, and recently released my own. Saving Chloe is part one of a trilogy which was released September seventeenth. Parker's Past is book two, which was released Nov. 30, 2013. The final book "Family Secrets" will be released early 2014. Thank you for your support, it means the world to me.

Finding You  
Sarah's stomach exploded into a jittery mess when she saw Jeremy standing there, giving her that sexy smile. Before she could say anything, he took a step closer and threw his arms around her, pulling her into a tight hug. All at once she felt the hardness of his chest against her cheek, and the sweet smell of his cologne--it smelled expensive, whatever it was.
As their bodies pressed into one another, Sarah's breath slipped away from her. One moment she had been watching Billie, and the next she had found herself in the arms of the guy she'd been thinking about all day. Heat rushed to her face, and she was thankful he couldn't see her.
Get a hold of yourself, you barely even know this guy.
When they pulled away, he still had that beaming smile on his face. And those crystal blue eyes took all of her in--they might have been the most gorgeous eyes she'd ever seen. He was wearing a fitted, black button-up shirt with his hair spiked like it normally was. His jeans were tight, and they were rolled up at the bottom with black shoes to round off the image. The top two buttons of the shirt were undone.
Like for many, life for Kelly didn't really begin until her 30th birthday. That was when she decided she was done with the corporate ladder and was going to start publishing some of her stories to see if people liked them. Fast forward a couple of years, and she's still amazed that she's able to spend her time doing something she's loved doing since she was a little kid.
Most of her free time is spent working in front of the computer at various coffee shops around Houston. But when she's not working on her next book, she's probably sitting in front of the TV with her eyes glued to whatever Netflix show she happens to be obsessed with at the time. Do we really have to wait this long for the next season of Orange Is The New Black?!
Follow her on Twitter, @harper_books, or head over to her Facebook page ( and leave her a message. Her website is currently going through some construction, and will be up and running sometime in February.

#WedBriefs It's All in the Tips #8

Happy Hump Day and welcome to Wednesday Briefs Flash Fiction! As always, I was given numerous options to inspire this weeks brief. Today I chose to go with the 2 photos included below and the following word prompt: “You’re not leaving, are you?”

I hope you enjoy & thank you for reading!

"It's All in the Tips #8"

I don’t think she knows who or what she truly is. I still don’t know a hundred percent myself, only a recognizable portion that’s currently calling out to a kindred spirit. The portion of her that’s like me.
            Now that I’m sensing a bit more of her, I’m shocked no one else has pointed out to her how valuable her rarity or existence is. To all that exist in the paranormal world she’s a treasure, a queen. I had no idea of it up until her power started seeping, flowing throughout the bar as she plays the piano. The emotions are being filtered from me, through her and back with such intense lightness. I feel so free and content.    
            Getting closer to her the way I am at the moment brings even more welcome emotions to the front lines, mate, mine. I wonder if this is the reason why I’m sensing her inner tenant, so to speak. The fact that she’s calling to my beast, it’s screaming, clawing for its mate. It started as soon as we got close to her while she was playing the tune. There was nothing but an attraction, a desire prior to that. This is all so very strange…
            I never thought I’d have one, ever. A mate is so rare for my kind, almost unheard of! And to find out right this moment, that she’s just like me, but with…more. Makes it all the better. At least I think it does.
            I take a step away from her after whispering in her ear that she can confide in me and I instantly feel the loss of her presence and comfort. I’m not used to this. To having any of these feelings. These are good feelings, positive feelings, feelings that have been few and far between throughout my years.
            In a rush I get the urge to take her far away to a secluded island, where no one would find us, and keep her under me until the end of time. Just the two of us until our time comes to an end, which with true mates like my inner beast is claiming she is to me, when one dies, the other quickly follows. But this is all ridiculous. I don’t even know if she’d enjoy submitted to me, giving me complete control in the bedroom. Domination her body, pleasing each and every single one of her nerve ending until she screams my name and begs me to stop. I don’t even know if she feelings anything as I do.
            For all I know she might be the dominant type between the sheets. I can imagine her taking control, riding me until I was drained dry. Commanding me to eat her sweet pussy until she passed out from the greatest of pleasure. I’d have no problem with that. None what-so-ever. But again, all of these thoughts, feelings, emotions, all of it right now feel so…strange.

             I need some space, some time. I need to think before I can no longer ignore this pull I feel directing me toward her, Renee. She’s definitely not fully aware of the paranormal world or what lurks right around her. I don’t want to frighten her by telling her too much too soon. It’s best I leave and gain my composure. I’ll come back another time while I have control over my feelings for her and slowly reveal the paranormal world to her, what I am and what I believe she is.
            I take one more step backward, then turn to head out the door. I didn’t realize she stopped playing until I heard her say softly, “You’re not leaving, are you?”
            Frozen in place. I was not sure what to say to her. I don’t want to lie, no relationship, friendship or otherwise, that you truly cherish should ever be based on a lie. The truth is always best. Actually true mates could never lie to one another. It’s instinct to tell the truth even if you think up a lie. But I can’t give her all of the truth at the moment. Turning around to face her, I omit many of the things I need to tell her and speak the truth with some trimming. “Yes ma’am.”
            She’s not aware that I know her name yet. We’ve not even been properly introduced yet. I don’t want to give her any wrong ideas or anything.
            “It’s pretty late and I have to make my way home.”
            I clear my throat, feeling awkward, “It’s best I leave now.”
            Her eyes flash with sadness and she looks down at the floor. My feet move on their own accord and quickly I find myself kneeling before her without realizing my movement. What the fuck?
            One of my hands is on her knee while the other tucks a lock of hair behind her ear, then glides down to her chin lifting her face so I can look into her eyes. The shock that travels through me as our eyes meet is indescribable…
