What inspired you to write your book?
I read a lot of romance, erotic romance, and erotic BDSM romance. The BDSM theme that sticks with me is that the heroine tends to be innocent and he hero is a damaged alpha male. I wanted to write a romance about a strong woman who was in charge of her sexuality and not afraid to ask for what she needed. The idea of Matt being a novice was born from his dimples and wavy hair. He has a high adrenaline job and knows how to take charge, it was only natural that he should be able to take control in the bedroom too, given the right inspiration. Matt is strong enough to give her what she needs without sacrificing his own principles and Alyssa is strong enough to let him.
Here is a short sample from the book:
“We have to stop Allie. We messed up last night and this morning. We didn’t use protection.” Allie, automatically assuming he was worried about her shady past, put her hand out to stop him.
“It’s okay. I haven’t been with anyone since…” Matt cut her off with a kiss before she had a chance to finish that statement, instead traced her upper lip with the tip of his tongue.
“I’m clean. I’m tested regularly.” He dipped his mouth to hers and held her hand against his heart.
“No. I mean good, I hadn’t thought of that. I just meant…” Allie pulled him to her and silenced him with a heated kiss. “I’m clean too,”he assured her.
“It’s okay. I’m on birth control,” she whispered against his lips. “Matt I need to feel you. I just want you, not…um… anything kinky. ”
Matt placed his hands on her ass and snuggled her to him and kissed her again, proving to her just how much he wanted her.
“Is this enough?” He heaved a deep breath, trying to find his self-control. Allie nodded.
“Tonight it is.” She sighed into his mouth as she spread his open shirt across his shoulders, leaving his perfect torso available for her palms to touch. Matt let a low growl escape as they connected with his skin.
“I need you too.” Matt reasoned as he deftly unzipped her little black dress.
