What inspired you to write your book?
I usually write BDSM erotica (under a different pen name) but I wanted to try something that was more vanilla while still being really hot. Plus, like a lot of people, I’ve experienced the joy of having a crush on someone who doesn’t seem to be aware of my existence let alone my feelings. It was nice writing out a scenario where a crush was very much noticed and appreciated.
Here is a short sample from the book:
He took his hand and gently pushed back my hair, then he put a finger under my chin and pulled up so I was forced to make eye contact. “Do you want this?” he asked, his face inches from mine.
“I think we’ve already established that you know the answer,” I said.
“And now we’re establishing that I want to hear you say it. Tell me how much you want it, June.”
The arrogance of him was so annoying! I lifted my eyes and met his gaze, expecting to see a smirk. Instead I saw longing, not just for me, but for my answer. In a wonderful moment of clarity I realized that he needed to hear me say how hot he was. I decided to give him what he was asking for and enjoy the results.
“I do want this, Morgan,” I said, “I’ve wanted you for a long time.” He smiled at me, and while I could still see the arrogance in his face, I could also see the relief.
I could feel him looking at me. I probably should have sucked in my stomach or arched my back so my boobs would look better, but instead I just concentrated on keeping my eyes cast downward. I was down to my underwear, in the library I worked at, with a guy I’d never even been on a proper date with. It was definitely not the sort of situation I usually found myself in.
“Turn around,” he said, quietly.
