The Rule Maker

The Rule Breakers #2

Publication Date: January 16, 2017

Genres: Adult, Entangled: Embrace, Contemporary Romance


Ten Steps to Surviving a New Job:

1. Don’t sleep with the client. It’ll get you fired. (Sounds easy enough.)

2. Don’t blink when new client turns out to be former one-night stand.

3. Don’t call same client a jerk for never texting you back.

4. Don’t believe client when he says he really, really wanted to call.

5. Remember, the client is always right—so you can’t junk punch him when he demands new design after new design.

6. Ignore accelerated heartbeat every time sexy client walks into room.

7. Definitely ignore client’s large hands. They just mean he wears big gloves.

8. Don’t let client’s charm wear you down. Be strong.

9. Whatever you do, don’t fall for the client. You’ll lose more than your job—maybe even your heart.

10. If all else fails, see rule number one again.


Have you ever read a book where it just works.  Where everything clicks?  Where all the words on the page fall together in just the right order?  Where you get to the end, and you’re surprised that you’re there already whilst at the same time disappointed that it is all over?

This is that book for me.  I would happily read it again. And again.  And … well, you get the drift!

I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader copy of this book.

“Please, Ryder.” Her hips bucked into me, grinding against my erection.

“Patience, Flash.” I smiled down at her. “I want to take my time with you.” I wanted to take her to the brink until she pleaded my name. I wanted every inch of her to be seared into my brain. I’d stripped her down to her underwear, and that alone was enough for me to come undone.

My tongue trailed down her neck, and I inhaled the sweet scent of lavender as I made my way toward her breast, taking a nipple in my mouth. I ran my tongue in a circle and she arched into me, letting out a tiny gasp. The noise went straight to my cock, and I throbbed for her. I’d physically ached for her for months. I pressed my lips into the flat of her palm. “You are mine.”

She nodded. “I’m yours.”

Her words obliterated my world. The trust in her eyes, the way she looked at me like I was worth a damn—I’d hit the jackpot. She writhed under my touch, pressed her body against mine, and the urge to connect with her, to be in her, almost broke my resolve.

Sex came second nature to me. But every move now was dedicated to earning Zoey’s maximum pleasure. I listened to her breathing, watched every sudden dip in her stomach. Her expressive body was the roadmap I’d travel until she begged me to be inside her.

I kissed along the freckles dotting her chest, to the muscles in her arm, to her delicate pink fingertips. No surface on Zoey’s body would go unexplored before we left this bed.

“Your mouth is so infuriating,” she whined, shifting restlessly beneath me.

I chuckled. “Usually you only say that when I’m talking.”

“Extenuating circumstances.” She raked a hand through my hair, and I leaned into her touch. “I might die before we get to the good part.”

“Such a whiner. I still have the left half of your body to explore.”

My mouth was on her neck, kissing down the flat of her stomach, to the curve of her hip.

“I’m not above retaliation when the time comes,” she ground out, her words strained.
