Read An Excerpt

Vinter is not your typical businessman. Tattoos, piercings and not a suit and tie in sight. One-third owner of a bar and a tattoo parlor along with being a bassist in a band, Vinter comes and goes as he pleases. He likes his beer cold, his music hard and his women scorching hot. Until he’s knocked off his game by a suburban doll he can’t stop wanting.

Elise needs a change. In men. The buttoned-up businessmen she’s been dating leave a lot to be desired—in romance, in respect and most definitely in sex. A recent text message from her now ex-lover drives Elise into a popular bar on the outside of town, where she meets one of its owners. He’s just the kind of man she’s never had and definitely the kind she’s always fantasized about. Big, bad and oh so naughty.

Unexpected tenderness. Unimaginable lust. Being dumped has never felt so damn good...

I obtained the above information from Ms. Lissa's website -->> here.

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...

This is one f*cking hawt book. It is the best quickie I have had in a long time. OMG... And all I can feel that I can say is that:

**stands pouting with hands on hips and demanding**

Ms. Lissa is one of the best erotic writers I have come to read. She gives it to me just the way I like it.... Straight up, with a twist, with a flogger, with a dirty, naughty tattooed up guy... with wild monkey sex, with sweet kisses... She crafts her heroine's to be the girl next door, your average woman... Strong, honest, bare to the soul kinda women. And this story is no different.

It is short at 60 pages... So there is not much I can say without giving this away, but I will give you this.....

Vinter is f*cking SEX.ON.A.STICK and I want him in my bed ASAP!!! But Elise, Ms. Lissa even makes me want her... Damn... She is a woman who has been rejected the worst way... via text message. I mean come on, I just wanted to take her home and make her feel better too... The same motive Vinter had when he saw her walk into his bar. He just wanted to give her a pair of ears to listen to, nothing more nothing less. Just talk. He knew the minute she walked into his bar that she was the one thing that did not fit. He knew his clientele and she was not a part of it. And knowing his clientele, he knew what most people wanted... some anonymity, someone to talk to about their problems, an escape. What he did not expect was the feelings he would have once he sat next to Elise!

Elise is your normal, typical woman. A regular nine to five job, a regular nine to five kinda man. Dreams of white fences, the house, the kids... The normal things... She thought she would have them in her current boyfriend... that is until he texted her and told her he was going back to his wife... Ouch.. Talk about kill a girls pride just a little huh... So, she hauled her ass across town and into to a bar to drown her troubles for the night. She knew what her limit was in the drink department... She just wanted to escape for a moment... That is until tall, dark, tattoo, dangerous man came and sat next to her.... Then all resolve hit the door!

One night, one bar... two people. With Simple Needs... With the same simple needs... With the same desire...

I will tell you this... I think my ereader burnt up after reading that one!!! Ms. Lissa, I bow down to you honey!!! You give my the smut I need to live. You are my crack... and I am addicted!

My quote is not for the faint at heart... Only hussies need to go farther....

"He winked and one corner of his mouth titled up as he sat back again. "You. Me. A bed. Naked. Fucking all thoughts of that loser right out of your pretty head."

Okay... Now do you want more Vinter... I thought so.....
