Trolling for sweetly smutty excerpts is a highlight of my week. Hopefully these sweet -n- saucy quotes put a little umph in your hump day too :)
This week, snippets hail from Rosanna Leo’s A Good Man, book 1 of her new Handymen series.
Not only is Michael a star on a successful home improvement show, he’s also seen as a local hero. But no one knows about the demons he carries inside him ever since the day he risked his life to save others.
All the accolades and honors only make the memories stronger and the pain unbearable. He would do anything to be able to forget, to put his past behind him and move on.
Michael takes on a new home improvement project, convinced it’s the perfect distraction. Little did he know that Emily, the woman who’s supposed to be nothing more than a client, would turn out to be a huge distraction…and engaged.
While Emily battles with her own personal problems, Michael is determined to keep his distance. The last thing he needs is woman trouble. But when it becomes clear that the attraction is mutual, he realizes staying away from her is not an option.
Now Michael needs to decide if he’s willing to risk exposing his weakness, and his heart…by giving in to temptation.
Heart Eyes! All the Heart eyes!
“Em, I love you.”
Her lips fell open. “You love me?”
“Hell, yeah. You’re my angel. I don’t ever want a day in my life to pass if you’re not in it.”
“I love you too.” She molded her body against his. “I love you so much.”
His heart really was beating out of his chest, but for the first time, Michael didn’t dread its wild gallop. This was a good solid beat, one that held excitement and hope. He didn’t fear the future any more. He craved it and wanted to experience all life had to offer with Emily. He knew in that moment he would spend the rest of his life finding ways to make her smile.
….Knock the flowers off the night stand and grab the prophylactic, its Smexy Time!….
Beset with a hunger she’d never known, Emily moved her hands toward his perfect backside and lifted her hips. Her silent plea got his attention. Michael raised his head. His eyes had gone black with need and his mouth hung open. She took the opportunity to push him onto his back and clambered atop him. Grinding down, her pelvis communing with his, she rode him. He grabbed her close and nibbled on her neck. They both wore jeans and he still managed to hit all the right spots. She would come like this, just like this, and didn’t care. ‘
“No.” Kissing her on the mouth, he tugged on her bottom lip.
“Don’t get carried away on me. We still have too many clothes on.”
“Take them off then.”
All the way off! Please. Cue the fans!
