What inspired you to write your book?
I wanted to write a book with steamy yet respectful sex between a couple. I also wanted to show the contrast between jumping into a relationship without knowing a person and taking your time to let a relationship build naturally. In addition, I wanted to bring awareness to mental illness and how people who are afflicted can live perfectly normal lives and deserve love and respect just like anyone else.
Here is a short sample from the book:
SATURDAY, EARLY MORNING – DAY 2
Silence filled the room as she took in the moment. Honesty leaped from her lips, unable to be held back. “I‘m quite attracted to you, too.”
His hand closed around hers as that dimple stole her breath. “Come here,” he said, gently pulling her arm. He sat her sideways on his lap, guided her face towards his and kissed her lightly.
A fuse lit within her heart the moment their lips touched. She closed her eyes and a few kisses later, he opened his mouth. Stop thinking and enjoy these moments of affection from this absolutely gorgeous man, Faith!
Their kisses intensified as his hand travelled up and down her back. Opening her eyes, she pulled away for a moment. She swung her leg over his and then sat on his lap straddling him. He smiled briefly at the position adjustment as she feverishly dove into another deep kiss.
Never in her life had she felt this kind of fire. This new medication was definitely likable, as was the handsome stranger. They kissed for a long while.
Completely turned on, she began to want more. In her twenty-eight years of life, no one had ever worked her up like this. It was a totally new pleasure which had her sensibilities off kilter. Their kissing slowed then stopped. A stare ensued as if another decision needed to be made. A deep breath expanded her lungs then a bite to her lip showed silent scrutiny of the situation.
After gazing back and forth between his gorgeous hazel eyes, Faith stood, taking his hand in hers. “Come here.” She slowly stepped back towards her room.
He stood, allowing her to lead him down the hall and once at the foot of her bed, she wrapped her arms around his neck.
Placing his hands on her hips, he quickly pulled her body tightly towards his and began kissing her.
She spoke between kisses. “I don’t normally do things like this. Like… never.” She started to pull his shirt off.
“Me neither,” he replied, pulling hers up as well.
His bare chest was the most gorgeous she had ever seen, with hard, defined muscles screaming to be touched. He removed her bra as she whispered, “You have to be nice to me. I’m kind of a novice.”
“Don’t worry, I plan on being very nice to you.”
They finished undressing each other while kissing, then he lay her on the bed. He hovered over her. “Do you have any protection?”
That thought hadn’t cross her mind at all. “No. I’m sorry, I don’t.”
“I think I have one, in my wallet.”
“God, I hope so,” she said, making him smile.
“Let me check. Don’t go anywhere.”
As if I would.
He left her momentarily then returned with a smile and a kiss. “I knew I’d be glad I had this one day.”
“You’re a smart man.”
“And you are a beautiful woman.”
“No need to flatter, I think you’re already in with me.”
“Not flattery, truth.”
He took care of protection business quickly then returned to her lips.
Her heart raced in her chest. Was she really doing this? It had been a long time and she was nervous of pain or worse; what if she was bad at it. Fortunately, the passion she felt for him overrode her fear. She reminded him in a sexy whisper, “Don’t forget to be nice to me.”
His touch was compassionate as he brushed her hair gently to the side of her face. “We don’t have to. We can stop before we even start. It’s okay.”
Ugh. A nice guy statement. “No. I don’t want to stop. Do you?”
He grinned. “Oh God, no, but…”
She pulled him in for a kiss before another word could be uttered.
“Are you sure?”
“Bring it,” she replied, heart still racing.
He sunk himself into her, causing her to gasp loudly. There was some pain, but it was temporary. He moved his body gently, taking note of her reaction. “Are you okay?”
“Yeah, I’m okay.”
He stared into her eyes as if to make sure.
“I’m good… really good,” she said as pleasure washed over her. His gentle yet firm touch felt amazing. “I have to say, you are being very good to me.” Her smile widened. “Damn, incredibly good.”
He grinned proudly, continuing his pursuit of pleasuring her. “I have a good partner.”
“No, it’s all you. Trust me.”
“Just relax and enjoy, my dear. I want to make you feel amazing.”
Her eyes closed. “Oh, you are.”
He shushed her sweetly, reminding her to relax. She melted in his arms and went along with whatever he did. He pulled her knee up to the side of his chest and held it there. His strong hand felt magnetic on her leg, holding it right where he wanted it. The weight of his body made her weak in the heart. She felt surrounded. Surrounded by emotion and… love. Was this what love felt like? Having never loved a man before, she wondered if she might be there already? Surely not.
Suddenly, their kissing ceased as her body flooded with an amazing burst of emotion. Her head went back and her eyes closed instinctively as he began kissing her neck. Pleasure built within her core, causing a total loss of control. Words exited her mouth involuntarily. “Oh God!” she shouted, barely able to breathe as a flurry of delight pulsed through her. More words came out, but she had no memory of them. Slowly, the sensation faded and she opened her eyes to find him looking at her.
“That’s exactly what I was going for.” He smiled proudly and went back to her lips, hovering closely.
She crashed her lips into his forcefully. He pinned her down and quickened everything, even his kisses. He was intense and powerful, very different from the way he had begun so gently.
He pressed his face into the bed beside hers and turned towards her ear whispering, “You feel so amazing to me.” He moaned, indicating it was his turn. Faith grabbed on tight as he released himself slowly.
Stillness met them. Soon, he lifted his head to make eye contact. A gentle stroke to her face led to another kiss after which he spoke, “Amazing. Absolutely amazing.”
“Yes, it was.”
He kissed her again before rolling to her right to catch his breath. He took her hand in his and kissed her fingers. “That was a nice surprise ending to my day.”
His words made her giggle.
“Come here.” He pulled her to him, wanting her head resting on his chest. His hand gently brushed her hair. “Was I good enough to you?”
“Holy crap, yes! I’d say so. Now you can pass out.”
He chuckled slightly.
“Isn’t that the way it works? Men always fall asleep right after sex.”
“I suppose it is. It’s because if we have done our job properly, we are exhausted.” He kissed her forehead. “Would you like to have a conversation about how to end world hunger instead?”
Another giggle exited her. “No.”
“Good. Not sure I could handle that right now.”
After a short silence, she spoke. “By the way, you can spend the night.”
His chest shook as he laughed. “Oh, thanks. I was wondering if you were going to kick me out when you were done with me.”
“I’ll let you stay, just this once.”
“Thanks, you are so very kind.”
She lifted her head, looking up finding him smiling just as she was. “Did that really just happen?” she asked.
“Why yes, I believe it did.” He guided her mouth to his for a kiss. “Thank you.”
She rested her head on his chest again. “No, thank you.”
He sat up. “Excuse me for a moment. I’ll be right back.”
Faith threw herself back on the bed staring at the ceiling as he went to her bathroom. What the hell did you just do, Faith? Her hands covered her face, embarrassed.
He slid back into bed with a wonderful sentiment which made her smile. “God, you are beautiful…”
His chest went to hers as their lips met, his hands combing through her hair.
I’m the luckiest girl on the planet right now.
“What are you thinking?” he asked, seeming concerned.
Intense eye contact with a grin made his apprehension disappear and dimple reappear. “I’m equally enamored with you. I mean, I did just have sex with you.”
“Yes, you did.”
Her heart fluttered. Damn he was sexy.
There’s nothing like a warm male hand on a girl’s naked belly to remind her she’s not alone in bed. She peeked over at him as he whispered, “Hey beautiful.” Her alarm clock could be seen and it was 4:00 a.m.
“Hey.” She snuggled into his chest as his strong arms wrapped around her. She felt his hand gently caressing the back of her head and it made her tingle all over. “I’m glad you’re still here. I thought you might sneak out once I fell asleep.”
“I’m not going anywhere,” he said softly as he lifted her chin to kiss her. One gentle kiss turned into another, then another. Their mouths opened at the same time and their tongues began to intertwine.
A rush of emotion hit her chest as she threw her leg over his body. His nakedness was inviting, making her intensely aware of his every touch.
As their passion built, he rolled his body on hers. Chest on chest she looked into his eyes, wondering what they were going to do about their protection problem. If only she kept something on hand for just this occasion. But this was not in the plan; nothing like this was supposed to happen to her.
He slowed their make out. “We should probably stop.”
Her heart ached at the thought. “But… I want you.”
“Oh God, I want you too, but…”
She interrupted him with a kiss. He surrendered his attempt to be wise as she wrapped her legs around him.
She nodded. “If you are, yes.”
With those simple words, round two began. “We are stupid, you know that?”
It felt even more amazing than the first time. “Oh, but stupid feels incredible.” She moaned.
“Yes. Yes, it does. Just want you to know I’m clean. I’ve been tested.”
“Me too.” She arched her back as he pulled himself towards her. He straightened his arms, pushing his upper body above her. Both her hands reached for his incredible chest. She ran them across his pecs and closed her eyes, feeling pure pleasure as their bodies moved against each other. She could tell he was interested in one thing; making her feel as good as he did.
He slowly pressed his chest against hers and began kissing the area around her left ear. He whispered, “You doing okay?”
She turned her face towards him and lightly bit his ear. “I’m wonderful. How about you?”
“Never been better,” he replied softly then dove into her mouth with intensity.
He was certainly amazing. It was hard to believe they had just met.
Quickly, he removed himself from her pulling away as he went to his knees. Reaching for her, she went to him willingly and the minute he had her, his hands gripped her hips lifting her upright. He used his body to press her against the headboard. His hands went under her rear as he brought himself towards her from beneath. His strength was obvious as control was all his. Like putty in his hands, she went along for the ride.
Damn, he knows what he’s doing.
As he thrust his body to hers, intensity began to build in her body and she knew she was getting close to losing control of herself. Placing her head on his shoulder, it began to wash over her. She heard him sigh, and knew he was there too. Concerned he might stop, Faith grabbed on tight, not giving him the choice. In that moment, she didn’t care about their lack of protection at all, the only thing on her mind was giving him something incredible to remember.
They gasped together, clinging, feeling pleasure wash over them at the same time.
When it was done, they became still and held each other as the silence of the room and their heavy breathing became noticeable.
After a few moments, he gently lay her down then placed himself closely next to her taking her hand in his. Her head went on his chest and his arms wrapped around her. “That was by far, the best sex I have ever had,” he said.
It was true for her too, but that was no shock.
His hand brushed her hair away from her face. “Thank you.” He kissed the top of her head.
“Do you always say that after sex?”
“When it’s that good, yes. It’s only polite.”
“Aw, your mother raised you right. She should be very proud.”
He laughed really hard. “If only you knew my mother you’d be laughing as hard as I am.”
Her heart soared, wishing they could stay like this forever. He was incredible.
Snuggling into him she closed her eyes. Tiredness was creeping in. “You’re not going to sneak out on me, are you?”
Both arms went around her as he kissed her forehead then closed his eyes. “Not a chance. I kinda like you.”
“Kinda, huh? I’d hate to see what you do to women you really like a lot.”
“I say ‘thank you’ twice.”
A laugh burst from her mouth. “Maybe someday I’ll be that lucky.”
