Cover Reveal: Sociopath by Lime Craven

Book: Sociopath
Author: Lime Craven
Genre: Dark Romance
sinopsis

The name’s Aeron Lore. And you are…? Such a pleasure to meet you, sweetheart. Is that a southern accent? Gorgeous.
You fucking bitch.
Why so surprised? I control a billion dollar fortune. I control the news. Give me five minutes and I’ll control you, too. If you could read my mind, you’d probably call me perverted. Unnatural. Manipulative. But I’ve learned to blend in, to be funny and charming. A predator in a designer suit.
I have no conscience. No shame in taking the things I want. And what I wanted was for Leontine Reeves to sell me her boutique tech firm so I could exploit the fuck out of it. Maybe exploit the fuck out of her, too, because desire haunts me in shades of scarlet, and I desire Leo most of all.
I never meant for this to be a love story. I fought it kicking and screaming, the same way Leo fought me. Now we’re bleeding into each other, making a mess. A chaos. There’s no control here. And what do monsters like me do when control leaves the building?
We attack.
EXCERPT
Often, at this time of night, I go into my gym room and pound out a few miles on the treadmill. Work on the weights. Not tonight, though; not after the meeting. I’m hungry for other things.
A long hot shower is where the build-up starts. I rub at my thighs with soapy hands. Take deep lungfuls of steam. Watch my cock harden as the water beats down, making it bounce and bob. I don’t allow myself women often—I’m too easily distracted by the ripe promise of flesh. But Miss Reeves and that ass. Jesus. I have to seduce her into selling her business; may as well go the whole nine yards and seduce her into other things, too.
In the bedroom, I don’t wait to dry myself, so my damp skin sticks to the sheets. No matter. I wrap a lubed hand around my cock and just squeeze intermittently. Teasing. This is what her pussy will feel like, this tight, ebbing grip. Breath slips through my teeth in a cold hiss.
Leontine told me that her name means lion, and it makes for a pretty line but it’s not what she is. Beyond those bedroom eyes and that surly, almost submissive manner, I know her type exactly; she’s the kind of girl who’ll let me play with her pussy until she’s wetter than an April morning, who’ll look pained and keep still while I lick her overripe clit. She won’t want it, not really, will keep the fight inside and pretend it isn’t happening. And then her orgasm will come from nowhere—desperate and aching—and she’ll claw at me while I claw at her sweet spot, fingers jabbing harder than she ever thought she’d like.
The words she’ll say in that accent. The haughty, breathy hitch in her voice when she comes—now that’s my kind of drug. Why has nobody figured out how to charge for that yet? Hookers don’t come like good girls; they rarely come at all, actually, but even when they do, it’s always spoiled with fake gratitude afterward. I don’t care if a girl thanks me for her orgasm, and I prefer it when she’s still too traumatised to get the words out, but Jesus. Sex is all about honesty—that’s what makes it sexy. And sex is one of the few things I can actually be honest about.
Which is why I don’t have it too often.
I stroke myself; long pulls, short twists at the head. The throb of impending orgasm climbs the muscles of my inner thighs. With each new streak of heat, I lean further into the pillows, back braced, chin tipped. Eyes squeezed shut. In the darkness, Leontine comes back into view, walking away from me in the lobby with her perky, sculpted ass bobbing in goodbye. The mere thought of it bare sets my teeth on edge; I can see her bent over, ass high, her pussy peeking out beneath like a split peach. She’ll want to be fucked when I’m done with my tongue and fingers. She’ll want to be full, to feel something else. Something risky. Bloody. Ah.
She looked almost frightened of me earlier. If I had a conscience, I’d feel bad for thinking of her like this: bent over, begging for it, trembling with pleasure and fear. But I don’t. And when I spray half a hell of cum over my abs, groaning and panting with the force of it, there’s no devil on my shoulder.
There’s just an empty room, a damp bed, and the dark undertow of impending sleep pulling me down, down, down.

author

I like dysfunction. Broken people who can’t fix each other, but fit together because they’re missing the same pieces. One of my favourite songs declares, “take the sinner down to feed desire,” and that’s my MO. I write dirty psychological thrillers with strong elements of dark romance.
I love antiheroes. Female characters who don’t just accept their faults, but downright exploit them. No nice boys. No shame. Mindfuckery for all.

“Weather to Fly” by Elbow

EXCERPT:
           “How about you and me pretend we are the only two people on this island and we’re staying for a good long time?” Ben nuzzled her neck for a moment and then found her earlobe with his lips, savouring it.
            “Why, Ben,” Alicia said coyly, “if there is no one else on this island, that means we can do anything we like, anywhere we like . . .”
            “Exactly,” Ben replied in a low, sexy tone as he slid his hand in between her thighs. Finding the high slit in her skirt, he ran his large hand along the silk of her legs, wasting no time in getting to her bikini bottoms. He toyed with the strings resting on her hips. One little tug and they would fall away from her, leaving her exposed under her skirt. Trailing kisses down her neck to her collarbone, he pulled at the strings. “I’ve been waiting to do that all day,” he murmured in her ear.
            Alicia gasped a little at the thought of being so exposed to the world before she realized that they really were alone. She allowed herself to enjoy the hot breeze as it caressed her sensitive skin. “That’s kind of why I bought it.”
            Ben’s fingers moved along the length of her sex, taking in its satin warmth. Alicia gave a little moan and turned to find his mouth with hers, feeling her body respond as it always did to Ben’s touch. After years of his kisses, she never stopped getting that thrill from feeling his lips on her. He kissed her the way he looked at her, as though she were the only woman to have ever inhabited the planet.

            Sliding his fingertips gently into her, pressing his palm against her, rubbing with exactly the amount of pressure that he knew she loved, Ben knew every inch of her body, how she wanted to be touched, what she needed, and he took full advantage of that knowledge as he moved his other hand up over her breasts. Moving his fingers in tiny circles inside her, he could feel her press herself hungrily against his hand. It wasn’t long before they reached that exquisite moment when she tensed in long waves as commanding as those in the ocean nearby. Alicia bit down on her lip to stifle the loud cry that begged to erupt from her throat. Ben’s own breathing become ragged and his entire body hardened at the desire that was building up in him. He wanted her right there on that beach and he was going to have her.

Blog Tour: Fighting Destiny by Amelia Hutchins

Banner

Since I posted my review of Fighting Destiny prior to the startbof the Blog Tour, I’m re-posting it now! There is also also a GREAT interview I did with both Ryder and Syn, a giveaway, some excerpts and the book’s playlist! Stay tuned 🙂

Fighting Destiny

Rating: 5 sexy stars

Goodreads Synopsis: Have you ever heard of the old Celtic legends of the Fae – beautiful, magical, and deadly creatures that have a love of messing with humans just for kicks and giggles?

Welcome to my world. What started out as a strange assignment, lead to one of the most gruesome murder mysteries of our times. My friends and I are set and determined to find out who is killing off Fae and Witches alike.

Couple of problems in the way – I hate the Fae and the Prince of the Dark Fae is bound and determined that I work for him. He’s a rude, overbearing egotistical ass with a compulsive need to possess, dominate and control me. Oh – did I mention that he is absolutely sex-on-a-stick gorgeous and he makes me feel things that I never ever wanted to feel for a Fae…every time he touches me or looks at me with those dangerous golden eyes he seems to pull me further in under his spell, despite my better judgment.

My friends and I can’t trust anyone and nothing is as it seems on the surface – not even me.

My Review:

First of all, thank you Amelia Hutchins for the copy of Fighting Destiny for  honest review 🙂

When I first received the information about the Blog Tour for it (and also when I first learned about it) I almost let it pass…thank God I didn’t though!  I would have missed one of the best books I’ve read. Definitely one of my top 5 favorite paranormal!

You want to know what got me to want to read it? These words right here (copied from the book’s synopsis): “He’s a rude, overbearing egotistical ass with a compulsive need to possess, dominate and control me. Oh – did I mention that he is absolutely sex-on-a-stick gorgeous and he makes me feel things that I never ever wanted to feel…”.

I normally don’t like Fae books. I used to be an avid paranormal romance reader, but somehow I just stopped reading paranormal. No reason, but for the difficulty in finding really good ones. I just turned to my romances (specially my beloved dark ones).  And again, I’m so glad I read this one book, because it has everything that makes a good story and AMAZING book.                      The good-story-to-tell part is very important for a successful book, but knowing just how to tell this story is the key to make it BLOW YOUR FREAKING MIND!

And Amelia Hutchins has so much talent to tell a story!

This was a hot read from the beginning, but it’s not only the sexiness in Ryder’s character or how funny Syn was (I just love her name!!). Ryder is the badass of all badasses and I loved how possessive he would get and his cockiness and jerkish ways. I love me some jerk LOL

You won’t be able to stop reading this book once you start it. It will be freaking impossible! You’ll be sucked into your book or reading device and when you’ll notice, the story ended and you will be in desperately need of book 2!

Even for the ones who doesn’t like paranormal stories, this one will suck you in! It’s not only about the Fae or the Witches, it’s about fighting for what you believe and stand by your ideals between so much more other feelings.

The lust between Syn and Ryder is evident since the very beginning, but it’s not it that makes the story keep going. Oh no, it’s the greatness of this story itself!

I don’t have enough words and I’m having difficulty in explaining how good this book was!

And there’s more yet to come..Big secrets that Syn just started to discover, she just cracked a tiny bit of their surfaces, and I know these secrets will blow our minds even more!

The Fae might be beautifully dangerous and the witches might be powerful but none of them stand ground between Syd and Ryder’s unite power and force! I love those too! Syn is made of real feelings and besides being a paranormal character she is very real and relatable! I just love her obsession with OPI and during some (difficult to read) parts of this book my heart broke for her and I cried for and with her! But I have every confidence in her and in her ability to heal and become more, become more powerful and even better than she already is!

Ryder baby, who do you think you’ll fooling…you’re crazy about Synthia! Just freaking give in you two!!

Amelia Hutchins congratulation for writing such a GREAT story! As I already said to you, thank you allowing Syn and Ryder to tell us their story through you! You rock!!!

You won’t regret clicking her book! Here is the link to buy it on Amazon!

Amelia, I can’t wait for the second book! You got me hooked, girl!!!

Here are some excerpts for you guys to see what I’m talking about! 😉

EXCERPT #1:

I don’t know what I had expected from Ryder, but this hadn’t been it.  Not this gentleness from him.  He kissed his way back up my legs, sending small bumps and gentle waves of heat to my core until he reached my ass.  I felt his teeth a second before they sank in, softly nipping at the skin.  I yelped and spun around.

He was naked, his Celtic brands pulsing beneath his skin.  His eyes glowed with liquid gold as they looked up at me from the floor as I stepped out of the panties.  I exhaled shakily as he bared my flesh for his inspection, slowly coming back up, watching me with dangerous fire lighting in his eyes.  “Are you wet for me, Syn?”

I moaned as his fingers pressed against the growing ache he was creating inside of me, his fingers rubbing against my naked sex as his mouth lowered until it found mine and kissed me softly. I captured his moan with my lips.  His tongue pushed through my lips, demanding more.  He pulled away, leaving me breathless as his wickedly handsome smile flowed up to shine in his bronze gaze.

“Get in the bath Syn, before I bend you over and fuck you right here, right now.”  

EXCERPT #2:

She’s all woman, tempting me when she shouldn’t be. She’s less than I am and yet I can think of no one else, nothing else besides how she is going to feel and look when I fuck her raw. She fights me, fights her needs, and yet I can smell it on her. Every. Fucking. Time.

She’s smells erotic, her wetness drenching her pink folds, I need to watch heat ignite in her vivid blue eyes as she accepts me inside her body. I want to watch as the heat from lust fills inside her endless depths as her pussy grows moist with her need while I’m driving my cock deep inside of her.

“Say it, agree to it Synthia,” I growl, my cock is hard, hard as fucking steel with the need to be fucked by those juicy red lips, to dominate her completely.

She doesn’t answer me, it pisses me off. “Syn…” I warn her, letting the need I feel in my cock enter my voice.

“Don’t make me forget it, please,” her voice is filled with her resolve. Her answer shocks me. I would have thought she’d ask for the memory of tonight to be erased. I hate that I can’t fucking predict what she does, what she says. In my world, it’s deadly.

“I’m going to fuck you, hard.” She needs to know I won’t be myself. I’ll be driven by the need to fuck her until she submits to me in every way possible.

CHARACTERS INTERVIEW:

Today I have the honor to host Synthia (Syn) and Ryder (*swoons*) here on Sex and the Books for a quick interview! So please welcome them!

Ryder, what did you think and feel when you saw Syn invading your rooms?

Ryder: I was amused, especially when she found the camera’s in my bedroom. ~Smiles wickedly~ You should have seen the look on her face when she realized what they were used for.

Syn: Pervert.

Syn, would you give up your OPI collection for another night with Ryder in the Fae realm?

Syn: Hard choice, right now? OPI stays, a girl has to have some comfort, and he’s a Fairy.

Ryder: Growls hungrily.

Since we’re in the OPI subjetct…Syn, how many OPI nail polishes do you currently have? (*already envies the collection*)

Syn: 98 bottles, and counting. I love my collection, it soothes me and of course, OPI chips less so is ideal for my line of work.

I totally agree! I love OPI! Too bad it is really expansive here in Brazil 😦

Ryder, what is your ideal woman like? (*wonders if I would fit in with the description*)

Ryder: Tough question…~Look’s at Syn~ Is mute and docile an option?

Syn: ~Snorts~

(*yep, no hope for me. LOL*)

Syn, after everything that you went through with the Fae, what you really think of them now?

Syn: I sleep with one eye open. I’m finding it hard to trust them when they keep reverting to secrets, and disturbing behavior.

Both of you, are you afraid of what is yet to come? Especially since you can’t control the things you’ll discover about Syn?

Syn: Who wouldn’t be afraid of what is coming?

Ryder: I think I’m going to enjoy her Transition…a lot.

Ryder, what is it like to be a female magnet?

Ryder: I enjoy it, a man has to eat after all, right? And I love to eat.

(*blushes*)

Syn, does Ryder being such a chick magnet bothers you? Are you the jealous?

Syn: It doesn’t bother me at all, they can have him. Ryder’s a caveman after all. I’m not really the jealous type anyway, if someone messes with what’s mine though…they better run fast.

Ryder: Snorts and shakes head.

Ryder, what is it like to be the badass of all badasses? Would you trade being the almighty Fae? What would you trade it for?

Ryder: I wouldn’t trade it for the world, and as I said. It’s good to be me. I get what I want, and I get it when I want it.

This is also a question for the both of you…we all can see that there’s a tension in the room every time you two come together. Do you think you’re ready to admit there’s no escaping the lust and be together?

Ryder: No. She’s mine already; she just doesn’t want to look weak by giving in.

Syn: As if Fairy, in your dreams. It’s not tension, it’s the loathing I have for you that you feel.

Hm…I better change the subject…Now I’d like to make a few quick Q&A with you guys…

Favorite color:

Ryder: Black.

Syn: Blue.

Favorite movie:

Ryder: None, humans and Ristan watch TV, I make my own movies.

(*blogger must not check any..ahem..sites in search of any Ryder’s movies*)

Syn: The Avengers. I imagine I’m Hulk, and smashing Ryder a lot.

Favorite food (real food please, Ryder ;P):

Ryder: Steaks, rare.

Syn: Coffee and chocolate.

Coke or Pepsi?

Ryder: Pepsi.

Syn: Coke.

Sexy or Romantic?

Ryder: Sexy.

Syn: Romantic.

Dark or Light?(though one, but I’m a fan of dark things myself…)

Ryder: Dark.

Syn: Dark.

(*thinks to herself “REALLY, Syn???”*)

Cats or dogs?

Ryder: Snorts…Pussy…cats.

(*blushes again*)

Syn: Dogs.

And finally…Boxer or Briefs?(*hopes Ryder would show her* *also hopes Syn won’t kick her ass*)

Ryder: I don’t wear anything under my jeans.

(*blogger momentarily faints from visualizing it*)

Syn: Boxers.

Thank you both so much for taking the time for this interview! I gotta say I love you individually, but together you are so funny (and talk about sexual tension…)! I loved to have you here on Sex and the Books and I can’t wait to hear more from you guys!

Thanks for having us!

Scenes from Fighting Destiny©2013 Amelia Hutchins

 Sex on Fire, Kings of Leon

“Not until I tell you to come Syn, in this place, I am your master, and you come when I fucking allow it. Your pussy gets rewarded when you please me, do you understand, or do I need to teach you how to serve me?”

Closer, Nine, Inch Nails

“Ryder,” I sighed without meaning to.

“Stop thinking, Syn.  You keep over-thinking everything.”

My lip trembled with the need to either kiss him, or run.  I settled on biting it softly while his hands held me in place.  The one on the small of my back came around softly pressing against the silk of the skirt as he rubbed his hand across my ass through the wispy material.  He lifted my leg and placed it on the bed carefully.

I watched his nostrils flare as the glow became more apparent, and he allowed me to see the full fire that I’d created in him.  “No panties?” He questioned through a guttural tone.

 Broken, Seether

“You keep saying you can’t, and it’s a lie. You won’t. You hide in the fucking past. You’re not living Syn, you’re just going through the motions of it. You want me, I can smell it—you need it as much as I do right now. The difference is, I can admit to what I want—you can’t.”

Godsmack, I Stand Alone

“I.  Am.  Not.  You’re.  Any-Fucking-Thing!”

“You will be,” he said, with an air of confidence that only pissed me off more.

Puddle Of Mudd, Control

“I’m not sleeping with you.  I don’t care if you’re starving and writhing on the fucking floor.  I’ll walk over you and out that damn the door.  I’ll drag someone else back to you—but it won’t be me you feed off of, ever.”

His lips twitched, but his eyes stayed emotionless.  “Writhing on the floor?”

“Writhing,” I confirmed.

“I do not writhe on the floor, ever.”

“Good, then we are on the same page.” I said smoothly.

Carly Simon, You’re So Vain

Great, that’s all I needed right now.  Smell the Dark Prince who is carrying you up the damn stairs like Cinder-freaking-rella!

Limp Bizkit, Behind Blue Eyes

“I’ll be strong for you Syn, if you need it.  You don’t always have to be the strong one, I’ll be your glue if you want to crumble, I’ll hold you together,”

It just is, simple as that.  That kind of love doesn’t die.  It withers the soul without the other to keep it alive. Eventually, it turns you bitter and cynical.”

 Stained, Believe

“No surprises in there, if you get in trouble this ends.  Do you understand me?”

“Yes master,” I grumbled, and then winced at the heat that flashed to life in his eyes.

“Mmm I like that word on your lips.”

Nine Inch Nails, Head Like Hole

Ryder turned around and looked down at me sharply in warning.  “Showtime Synthia, kiss me.”

My mouth went dry.  All the fluid inside my body went shooting straight to my vagina.  I licked my lips nervously.  “Seriously? That is like the opposite of what I just said outside.”

“Prove you can do this, now.” His eyes searched my face, and with the single look I melted for him. I was pathetic, a pile of fucking mush from once single look!

Stone Sour, Through the Glass

“How old are you?” He continued.

“Twenty one years old.  Going on one hundred.”

He smiled, but it was all teeth, “Funny girl.”

Snow Patrol, Chasing Cars

“I didn’t forget who I was, Syn.  I knew exactly who I was and who I was with when I lost control.”

Three Days Grace, I hate Everything About You

His eyes lit up, and he shook his head as more Fae magic pushed into my mind.  It was painful at first, but gone instantly when his lips caressed mine.  I moaned and pushed against his mouth with need for him that was so hot and fierce, that I was afraid I’d be left in a pile of ash if he didn’t continue and give me more of his mouth.  When he pulled away, I cried from the loss. “Ryder.”

“What’s your name?” He demanded in a husky voice, filled with hunger.

“Syn. Now shut up and kiss me Ryder.”

Sublime, Bad Fish

I tore my eyes away from him with a nervous laugh bubbling inside of me.  He stepped in and slid his magnificent body in slowly into the water.  “Relax Syn, I promise to be gentle—the first time.”

“The first time?” I asked meeting his hard penetrating stare.

 Trapt, Headstrong

His eyes challenged me, but he remained silent as he pulled one of my legs out from where I had been holding them up against my body.  His eyes stayed locked with mine as his fingers rubbed the pads of my foot.  “This isn’t going to be over fast Syn, it’s going to take more than once to get you out of my system.”

AC/DC, You Shook me all Night Long

I wasn’t sure I wanted to be out of his system. I should have been happy to hear it, but it sat like a rock on my chest.  “You really think you can fuck me out of your system?”

Disturbed, Down With the Sickness

“No Syn, nothing with you could be that easy,” he said showing his teeth as he pulled my leg and made me lose my balance in the water.

Kings of Leon, Use Somebody

“Not used to getting compliments, are you?” He said moving us closer together until my body was completely flushed with his.

“No,” I replied honestly.

“I scare you Syn, make you feel things you are afraid of admitting.”

Seether, FMLYHM

“I don’t make excuses for what I am, or what I do. I play hard. I love hard, and I fuck even harder Syn, I am what I am. So if you play games with me, keep in mind I will be more than happy to play them with you and…I always win.”

Man of my Dreams by Faith Andrews ebooklg

BOOK SYNOPSIS:

Mia Murphy may be married to the man of her dreams. But the man in her dreams is the one that got away—her high school crush.

Mia’s stuck in a rut, just like every other stay-at-home mom, and the only thing saving her from her monotonous routine is her perfect husband, Declan. He’s gorgeous, he adores her, and the man stole her heart with his sexy singing voice. Mia feels like the luckiest girl in the world, until she discovers that Mr. Perfect is not Mr. Faithful. Mia is devastated. Everything she once believed about Declan and their marriage is now covered in a big cloud of doubt and regret. On impulse, she kicks the cheating bastard out, pushing them into a separation that could mean the end of the picture-perfect couple.

But when Mia receives an invitation to her high school reunion, she finds herself abandoning the present for the oh-so-alluring pull of the past. Although her heart still belongs to her husband, inescapable thoughts of her crush, Noah, resurface. And ten years later, Noah isn’t afraid to make his move. When the build-up of fantasies and ‘what ifs’ comes to a head, sparks fly and it’s Mia’s turn to question if her marriage is everything she wants out of life. Searching for answers, Mia dives head first into dating Noah, falling further away from her husband and closer to her old flame.

But Declan’s not giving up so easily. Mia is his one and only and he’s not about to let another man win her heart.

Cover Reveal (and Giveaway): Don’t Let Go by Michelle Lynn

DON'T LET GO - Cover-1

Book Synopsis:

Sadie Miller is attempting to change her ways and hide somewhere no one knows her former self. She only wants to finish her final year of college, obtain her degree and get out from her parent’s hold. Then she meets Brady Carsen, the lead singer of the college town band, The Invisibles. Although she tries to stay away, his persistence quickly wins her over and she realizes although he is everything she’s not used to, he might be exactly what she needs and more importantly wants.

Unfortunately, Sadie’s troubled past at her last school left her with insecurities that make her question Brady’s true intentions. While Brady is convinced Sadie is the one for him, he has his own secrets that he fears will be their undoing, destroying everything they have grown to become.

If they want to be together, they will have to stand united and fight the outside influences that are threatening to tear them apart. Can they put the distrusts and apprehensions formed by their pasts behind them for good in order to secure their future?

EXCERPT:

“I’m kidding, Sadie. To be honest I have never tried this place, but you have peaked my interest.” We stand out from the shop to look up at the menu. “So, what do you get?” he asks.

“Usually the veggie de lite.”

“Are you a vegetarian?” he inquires, sounding like it could be the worst thing in the world.

“Is that a deal breaker for you?” I ask.

“Deal breaker?” he inquiries confused.

“You know, something you find out about someone that makes you not want to date them,” I answer.

“What’s yours?” he asks.

“I asked first. If I was a vegetarian, would that be a deal breaker?”

“I’m not sure anything I find out about you would be a deal breaker, but to be honest I don’t understand vegetarians.”

“Hum.” I turn around to give my order to the cute red head behind the counter who can’t keep her eyes off Brady.

“You never answered. Do you eat meat?” He comes up behind me.

“No, I’m not a vegetarian, I just like the sandwich,” I honestly reply. “I’ll have a veggie de lite with low fat cream cheese” I give the girl my order. Usually I get the garlic and herb spread, but I am not about to talk to Brady with garlic breath.

“What can I get you?” The red head looks Brady up and down while her co-worker starts making my sandwich.

“Same, but garlic and herb cream cheese.” He smiles over to me and I am sure awe fills my face. It makes me half tempted to change my order. “I hate that low fat shit.”

“They have meat, you know?” I tell him.

“I know, I want to experience why you like it so much.” He scoots next to me and my heart races when his hand brushes against mine.

When we get to the cash register, Brady pulls out a twenty before I can even get in my messenger bag, adding chips and drinks to our meals.

“Don’t pay for me!” I scream.

“Why not?” Brady stares around seeing a few students looking our way after my outburst.

“This is not a date,” I confirm.

“Hey, just because I decide to buy you lunch or dinner, or whatever this meal is doesn’t mean it’s a date.” He softens his voice, getting closer to me.

“It’s just…things get implied with dates.” I’m desperate to compose myself. I don’t want to owe him anything.

“Relax, Sadie. I’ll make you a deal.” He grabs our tray and leads us to a table.

“What?” I take a seat, happy he picked a table in the back.

“You can buy me a meal tomorrow.” He smirks up at me.

“Nice, Carsen,”

“A meal for a meal, then we will be even.” He takes both straws and pounds them on the table until the wrappers fall down. He puts one in mine and the second in his drink.

“When are your classes tomorrow?” I ask.

“Well…I live off of campus and I don’t have classes on Friday’s, so it will have to be later.” He takes a bite of his sandwich.

“Later, when?” I ask before I take a bit of mine.

“This is really good, you don’t even miss the meat,” he says surprised, lifting his sandwich. “After my show,” he answers my question.

“I told you the sandwich was good. After the show what?” I take a sip of my soda.

“I have a show tomorrow night. We will get something after I’m done,” he casually says while he continues to eat his sandwich.

“Sorry, but I’m not going to that bar, house or whatever it is from last week.” I shake my head back and forth.

“Good, because we are playing at Aces.” He laughs. “I’ll pick you up.”

“Um…no. Let me just give you the money.” I dig through my bag getting the ten dollars out placing it on the table.

“That’s not the deal. A meal for a meal. Just so you know, after a show I am so hungry you might get the raw end of this deal,” he jokes.

“I think I already got the raw end. I can’t go to your show tomorrow or out to eat,” I say and put my sandwich down, suddenly not able to finish it.

“What do I have to do?” He asks me before pops a chip in his mouth.

“Nothing. I don’t date.”

“Okay, it won’t be a date. A friend coming to another friend’s show and then grabbing something to eat. I will even invite my band if it makes you feel better.” His eyes are begging me and I have to admit I want to go after listening to him sing the last few days.

“Fine, but I am bringing my roommate, Jessa, with me,”

“Great, the more people the better. I’ll pick you both up.” He picks his sandwich back up, happier than before.

About the Author:

Author Photo2-2-1

Michelle Lynn has always been a reader, but her passion has become a full-blown addiction since her husband bought her a Kindle for Mother’s Day. She’s pretty sure that he regrets this on a regular basis. Especially when she has it propped up next to the stove while she cooks, which often results in a burnt dinner. Or when he loses sleep because the glow from the screen wakes him up when he rolls over at three in the morning. He does agree, however, that she uses this gift more than any other he has ever gotten her. She joking counters that, because of some of the steamy novels she reads, he also benefits more from this gift than any other he has gotten her. 😉

Michelle moved around the Midwest most of her life, transferring from school to school before settling down in the outskirts of Chicago ten years ago, where she now resides with her husband and two kids. She developed a love of reading at a young age, which helped lay the foundation for her passion to write. With the encouragement of her family, she finally sat down and wrote one of the many stories that have been floating around in her head. When she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found playing with her kids, talking to her mom on the phone, or hanging out with her family and friends. But after chasing around twin preschoolers all day, she always cherishes her relaxation time after putting the kids to bed.
