Today we have a taste of author Amber Skyze's newest, SPLASHING GOOD TIME from Ellora's Cave. (Note the yummy cover here!) AND we have the review for her Mistletoe Studs. Intriguing title, no?
Here we go with SPLASHING GOOD TIME!
“You look hot!” she told her reflection. “Irresistible hot?” Only time would tell. Strolling over to the window she dared a peak outside. He wasn’t here yet. Would he come? Certainly Steve sounded convincing enough. The fifty dollar bill she planted in his palm was enough encouragement to make an actor out of him. She stood by his side while he made the call. If she hadn’t known better, she would have believed him. She sent him on his way after the call. No need for him to stick around for the fireworks—hopefully of a sexual nature.
The undeniable sound of tires crunching on gravel, alerted her Nathan was here. And from the hurried sound of the truck coming to a stop, he wasn’t pleased. Silently she prayed her idea wouldn’t backfire. Hurrying from the room she descended the stairs, hoping to greet him at the pool.
“What the…” she heard him scream.
Too late. She wasn’t quick enough. Nathan knew and he wasn’t happy. Reese slowly opened the door and walked casually over to the pool where Nathan stood looking at the water, obviously trying to figure out where the emergency was.
Whipping around he demanded. “What’s going on here?”
Lost for words Reese stood frozen in her spot. She hadn’t expected such anger. Yes, she tricked him into coming over. Maybe having Steve tell him the pool had turned an ugly color green that he couldn’t get rid of was a bad idea but she believed he’d be happy to see her. Boy was she mistaken.
“I-I-I put Steve up to it,” she confessed. “I didn’t think you would see me any other way.”
“Maybe if you picked up the phone you would have found out.” The disgust in his voice evident.
He was pissed at her. Her plan was slowly crumbling before her eyes. She couldn’t risk losing him a second time. He couldn’t walk away out of her life. She loved him. God help her she loved him more than any man she’d ever loved in her life.
“Would you have come if I had?” she challenged.
Looking away he shrugged.
“Then I was right to do what I did. I needed to see you, Nathan. You’ve been avoiding me. I’ve missed you.”
She watched him looking at the water. Was he searching for answers? Maybe there was hope for them after all.
Closing the gap between them, she touched his hand. “Please Nathan, look at me.”
He did as she asked and immediately her heart sank. Pain, deep pain, filled his eyes. Gone was the sparkle she loved so much, replaced with pain that cut to the core. Pain caused by her foolishness.
Touching his face she whispered. “I’m sorry.”
“What’s done is done.” He tried pulling free but she refused to let him walk away.
“I never meant to hurt you.”
“I wasn’t trying to compare you to Vince. It may have sounded that way at the time and I’m sorry. I love you for who you are, not because you’ve proven him wrong. It doesn’t matter to me what Vince thinks, or anyone else for that matter. The only thing that matters is what’s in here,” she said pointing to her heart. “And here.” She placed her hand over his heart.
She felt his heart beating rapidly through his tight black t-shirt. He covered her hand with his.“Do you honestly believe you’ll be okay with what others think about us? Because as you’ve pointed out before I’m much younger than you.”
Fallen Angel Review of Amber Skyze’s Mistletoe Studs
Small town librarian Meg Trainor has a secret, one that she has never shared with anyone. When her ex-boyfriend, David, leaves town with Kate Madigan, Meg is relieved. Now she may be able to find a man or men who will fulfill her every fantasy. One thing is for sure: that man is not her best friend Lisa’s cousin, Kenny.
It’s Christmas Eve and Meg is ready to spend the day sitting in front of the fire at the local library writing in her journal, a journal that holds all her sexual fantasies. She is also hoping to find a way to beg off from her friend’s Christmas party and having to face poor Kenny.
The last thing Meg expects is for not one but two sexy toy salesmen to walk through the doors of the library. Could Santa be about to grant all of Meg’s Christmas wishes?
Brad Griffin enters the small library expecting to find a little old lady behind the counter. What he encounters instead is sex on legs. From the moment he sets eyes on the delectable Meg, he wants her in every way he can think of. When a snowstorm hits the small town, Brad and his brother Shane just may get an early Christmas present.
Amber Skyze writes a fun-filled sex romp with three adults engaging in BDSM. The erotic ménage scenes between Meg, Brad and Shane are well written. While the main characters are Meg and Brad, Shane plays his part as a willing participant to fulfill Meg’s fantasies.
The chemistry between Meg and Brad is shown from the start. While you soon learn they both want the same thing, more than just a one-night stand, their insecurities with each other ring true. Mistletoe Studs is a great read if you are into BDSM and ménage novels. Ms Skyze builds the tension between the main characters well and has you wondering if they will find their happy ever after. I’m looking forward to reading Shane’s story and seeing if he gets a chance at love.
