MISTER TONIGHT by Kendall Ryan

 

 

 

From New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a standalone romance about a swoony single dad and the new neighbor he falls for.

Last night was the most embarrassing night of my life.

I was THAT girl.

You know, the highly intoxicated chick celebrating her thirtieth with her two best friends—the ones who are happily married. And the more I drank, the more I wanted to do something reckless to celebrate.

By reckless, I meant the sexy and alluring man dressed in a business suit standing near the bar. You know his type—tall, dark, and handsome. I was sure he was out of my league, but I’d had just enough alcohol that things like that no longer seemed to matter. I’m not fat, mind you, but you can tell I like French fries, so there’s that.

He took me home and I enjoyed the hottest birthday sex of my life, well until it came to a screeching, and rather unwelcome halt.

There’s nothing quite like being interrupted mid-ride with a little voice asking:

“What are you doing to my daddy?”

Just kill me now…… or so I thought.

Come to find out the man I rode like a bull at the rodeo is my new landlord.

Broken glass

SYNOPSIS:

Leif Andersson knows a lot of things. How to hunt terrorists, where to hide from his neurotic, overbearing sisters, when to make a reasonable judgement call, and why he’s never settled down with a woman. When a SEAL base opens in the small, coastal town of Bronze Bay, Florida, Leif knows it’s the perfect situation to shake things up after years of fighting a monotonous, global war. A simple place, to build a simple life turns out to be anything but when he meets and falls in love with her.

Dementia stole Malena Winterset’s mother. It also took her father. He abandoned them both a decade ago when the mental illness grew to be more than he could bear. As the primary caretaker for her mother, Malena spends her days planning parties and working at the Bronze Bay General Store. Her nights are spent at home, wishing for something more. When a SEAL base opens, a new, handsome face in town makes his presence known, but his affections come with rules.

1.) Two forms of birth control

2.) Never leave stuff at his place

3.) Be content to never meet his family

4.) Don’t fall in love with him.

When the unthinkable happens, and three of the rules are shockingly, and accidentally broken, lives are changed forever.
At least Malena never left her toothbrush in his bathroom…

Excerpt
“Stop,” I gasped out, before our mouths connected. To his
credit, the man didn’t hesitate at all. He was out of my space before the
letter p quit resonating.
“You okay?”
“Yeah, I just…” I grimaced, waiting for the thrumming in my
chest to subside.
“We don’t have to do anything. You know that.” He made as if
to slide out of his bag, the words rushed, his voice a little too loud. “You
take the tent. I’ll go outside, give you some space.”
It would have been easy to feed him some BS about a
headache, but that wasn’t my way. “Wait.” I set a hand on his arm. “I’m not
used to this.”
“Kissing strangers in tents?” He huffed out an impatient
sound. “Or not kissing them, I guess.”
“No. No, that’s not it.”
“So, you are used
to kissing strangers in tents?” There was a smile in his voice.
A nervous giggle escaped me and I sat up, my head almost
brushing the ceiling of this tiny space. He was so big and this tent was too
small, too tight, too…something. The smells, the sounds, so subtle, but more than any half-drunken,
fully-clothed door bang. “Maybe it’s cause I knew you as a kid, but I…I don’t
think so. I think it’s…” Jesus. I
swallowed and worked hard to catch my breath. “I don’t feel sorry for you,
okay? Just so that’s clear. But there’s this…sadness to you that’s got its
claws in me. I want to fix it. God, I know that sounds fucked up. And it’s not
like me at all. But I want to take it, maybe? Make it better. Smooth it out or
swallow some of it?”
He cleared his throat as if he’d say something, but nothing
came out and, since I was afraid to look at him, I plowed right through.
“You’re not my type, Kurt. My usual M.O.’s more confident asshole than broken
soldier, I guess.”
“Broken Marine,”
he corrected.

“Marine. Right. I didn’t mean to insinuate that there’s
anything wrong with— Oh, fuck it, come here.”

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Knocked Up Cover_resize

First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes baby in a baby carriage. Just not necessarily in that order….

Braxton: I should probably be dead or in jail right now. Instead, thanks to some tough love, I worked my ass off and now I own a string of tattoo parlors throughout the Pacific Northwest. And yet the one thing I’ve always wanted—a family—still seems out of reach. When my best friend gets married, I’m just hoping to blow off some steam with the super-hot maid of honor. But after Cara Thompson tracks me down to tell me she’s pregnant, she’s more surprised than I am when I tell her I’m all in.

Cara: For the first time in my life, I’m living for myself—not for my parents and their ridiculous expectations. I gave up on my MBA, dropped out of the Ivy League, and moved to Portland to pursue my dream of becoming an artist. And what’s the first thing I do? Get knocked up. For a tatted-up sex god, Braxton Henley seems way too eager to “be there for me.” Is this guy serious? Maybe. He sure is patient. Because he won’t back down until I admit what I know in my heart: that our one night stand might’ve led me to the one.

Excerpt:

I quickly take everything off and drape the paper sheet over my lap, leaving my socks on, and when I’m ready, the edges of the sheet tucked under my thighs and backside, Pam knocks on the door.

“Ready?” she calls as she’s already pushing open the door.

“Yup.” I sound like I’m about ready to croak, and Braxton’s deep, rumbling chuckle worsens my rattled nerves. He kissed me!

I raise my hand to my mouth and as my fingertips press my lips, they’re taken away, gripped in Braxton’s warm hold. He smiles down at me knowingly and I force my attention on Pam.

She pulls the internal monitor out of the drawer, along with a bottle of lubricant and a condom, and Braxton’s grip on my hand turns almost bone-crushing.

“Is that—”

“Yup.” I cut him off.

“Um.”

“Now you see why I wanted the external one,” I mutter quietly.

I can’t look at him. My cheeks are on fire, and for some absolutely insane reason, other parts of my body are warming and this should not be happening at my midwife’s office.

“So,” Pam says, turning around and back to business. Except it’s hard to take her seriously as she waves what looks like a massive vibrator in her hand. “We’re going to insert this inside of you.”

“Holy shit,” Braxton mutters. And God, kill me. Please kill me now.

If Pam hears him, she ignores him as she steps toward me, and pulls out a set of stirrups from beneath the table. “I’m going to need you to lie down, Cara, and spread your legs, and slip down to the edge of the bed for me.”

“I feel like I’ve heard this before,” I say, unable to stop myself. My filter has evaporated along with my self-respect and all of this is so absolutely humiliating.

Pam pauses, glances at me and then at Braxton and nods, understanding. But I swear, as her gaze sweeps down Braxton’s arms, even she blushes. Which is great . . . my midwife thinks my non-boyfriend baby daddy is hot.

“I feel like I’ve said this before,” Braxton says, and both of our eyes whip to him. My gracious. He’s smiling, shoulders shaking like he’s holding back the world’s most boisterous laugh, and it’s all I can do to not kill him while he’s standing there, glancing between the monitor-slash-vibrator and my spread legs and I can’t hold it in anymore.

“This is embarrassing.”

Pam is back to business, already spreading the condom over the phallic-shaped instrument, and then she drizzles on the lubricant.

Braxton’s breath brushes over my cheeks. His dark locks tickle my temple as he whispers, “I feel like I should be offering to help with this.”

“Shut up,” I grit, my stomach muscles clenching from trying not to die or laugh. “This isn’t funny.”

“Oh. This is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen, I’m not going to lie.”

My fingers squeeze his hand and Pam is in front of me. She holds a small black box in her other hand and the tip of the wand against my center. “I’ll go slow, and it might be cold, okay?”

“Yup.”

“Sweet Jesus,” Braxton whispers. “I don’t know whether to be terrified or turned on right now, Cara.”

Excerpt
I take in
the dimmed lighting and romantic atmosphere as I approach the hostess desk.
“I’m here
to meet my boyfriend, Na…”
“Ah yes,
ma’am. I’ve been expecting you, Ms. Riley. Please follow me,” the young girl
says, as she walks from behind her booth to lead the way.
Soft
instrumental music plays in the background and I can’t help but feel a touch
out of place. This is the fanciest place I’ll have ever eaten at and couples
with expensive clothing and snooty expressions litter this room. Men’s eyes
follow me as their wives’ sneer at them.
I feel like
a display. The cheap woman dressed in fancy clothes to meet a man who pays for
the nice things she wears. He picked my dress. He picked my shoes. Hell, he
even placed a beautiful set of earrings alongside side this dress on my bed.
I felt
beautiful leaving the house, but these women are dressed in a more modest
fashion. This dress Nate laid out for me, scoops low in the back and its fine
fabric left me with no choice but to go sans undergarments. The peak of my
nipples shows through for all to see, and I can either accept their stares and
show confidence, or I can turn and leave this place, allowing these snobs to make
me feel bad with their mean judgments of me.
Do I care
if all of their husbands want to fuck me? No. In the past, I’d be more than
happy to oblige, but tonight I’m only here for the man who draped me in these
expensive garments.
During my
massage today, I made a realization. The Riley I was when I started seeking
help for my inability to choose my sexual partners wisely is weak. Things also
took a turn for me when Jon came back to town. I became vulnerable. I need to
find a good balance between the woman who showed confidence at every corner and
took what she wanted, and the woman who has self-control and looks out for her
best interest and that of her daughter.
I am a
one-man woman, but I also like sex and the attention of men. I just need to
control my reactions to their stares. Dropping my hands that were folded in
front of me to my sides, I place my body on display, and I continue the rest of
the way to our table with a sway to my hips that would drop any man to his
knees.
“Here we
are. I hope you both enjoy your meal,” the hostess says.
Nate stands
from his seat, pulling out my chair for me. Leaning in, he places a kiss to my
temple and whispers in my ear, “How will I behave myself during dinner with you
looking like this?”
His breath
caresses my skin, causing a delicious shiver to rake through my body. “Well,
you sure have caught the attention of every other man in this restaurant, too,
with your dress selection.”
He motions
for me to sit. “They can look but not touch. Plus, I don’t mind them envying me
for being the man who gets to touch you tonight.”
Taking my
seat, I ignore his comment. Sometimes I wonder about his motive with me; am I
just a prize to hang on his arm or is his love for me genuine?
“I’ve
ordered for us. The appetizer should be out soon.” Reaching across the table,
Nate takes my hand. “How was your afternoon off?”
It was
everything I needed. My mind has been playing crazy games with me. One minute,
I’m worried about Jon and everything from our past turning me into the fragile
girl I was before having Kiley, and the next minute I worry about becoming that
weak little girl. Then I push away all thoughts about who I was and focus on
the woman I need to be, the one who belongs to the man sitting in front of me.
Nate’s
Riley is strong, manages her problems, and takes her struggles head on, never
shedding a tear or falling apart in front of an entire gym full of people.
“Riley?”
Nate’s voice pulls me back to him.
“Thank you
for spoiling me. I had time to sort through a few things in my head, and I feel
much better,” I reply.
He lifts my
left hand to his mouth, placing a kiss to it. “That’s my girl. I didn’t like
seeing you so distant.”
“I’m
sorry.” This is the longest I’ve gone without being intimate with Nate since we
started sleeping together. For some reason, I know he’s talking about sex, even
though I’ve been withdrawn in other ways, too.
“Don’t be
sorry. We have tonight to make up for lost time. Looking at you in that dress
all night will surely have me worked up by the time we finish our meal.” Nate
smiles with a wicked gleam in his eye.
There’s
something about him expecting sex that makes me want to refuse, but I know I
won’t. I’ll do whatever he wants because I need to get my life back, even if I
feel like I’m being bought.
Most women
would love Nate’s money, and while it’s nice to do most everything you want,
genuine love and time together is most important to me. I know that’s not in
the cards for me. I’ve made too many mistakes and I’ve been a terrible person.
I don’t deserve real love, so I’ll accept the superficial kind in its place.
Nate is a
good man, even if I’m a display for him. He takes good care of me, in his own
way, and he loves my daughter. She loves him in return and I can’t ask for more
than that. Kiley is my world, and if she is happy then that’s all I need.
I hear
Nate’s chair push back. He moves it around the table until he’s seated next to
me. “I can’t keep looking at you and not be able to touch you.”
Our waiter
arrives at our table, placing a beautiful display of seared tuna on the table
in front of us. Nate did well; this is one of my favorites. He lifts a piece on
the end of his fork and brings it to my lips. “Open that sweet mouth of yours.”
I obey.
When the food touches my tongue I can’t help but let out a moan of
appreciation. “That’s delicious.”
Nate’s lips
press to the corner of my mouth. “So are you and I plan on having my fill
tonight.”
We sit and
we eat. Nate places gentle touches on me and kisses me throughout our meal.
He’s ordered all of my favorites. It’s been a perfect end to my day, and I am
thankful for all that he’s done.
“Would you
like dessert?” Nate asks.
Leaning in,
I place a soft kiss to his lips. He’s eager to leave and head home. I can see
it in his eyes. He wants me and tonight I need to fulfill his needs. I want us
back.
I think
I’ll order the crème brûlée, and tease him for a bit. “Are you ordering
something?”
I shiver as
his lips brush across my neck, until they are next to my ear and he whispers
just so I can here, “My dessert has been sitting in front of me, practically on
display for every man in here, all night. Watching all of them want you,
knowing I’m the one who gets to have you, drives me mad. I’m going to devour
every inch of you, before driving into what I desire most.”
His words
make my body respond in ways I’m afraid will leave evidence of my arousal on my
dress. “I think I’ll have the crème brûlée.”

Author Bio

 

Hi all,
Elizabeth Wills here. I am the author of The Affections Series and released my
first book in 2015. I write angsty contemporary romance but am currently
working on a novella that I hope will make you laugh hysterically. My biggest
goal is to challenge myself while enjoying the process of writing and to
deliver a story that will touch you and stay with you after the turn of the
last page.
My journey
started as a reader when I found the indie community after purchasing my first
Kindle. Some of the first authors to catch my attention were K.A. Linde,
Colleen Hoover, and S.C. Stephens. As time went on and more and more writers
began to publish their work on their own, I grew to love and support the indie
community. Inspiration struck during those days and I started writing my first
book in 2014, releasing Fractured Affections a short year later. I have made
friends and gained support from people around the world. It never ceases to
amaze me how strong the indie community can be.



When I am
not writing, I work a full-time job as an MRI Tech.  I’ve worked in
the field since 2005 and love what I do and the people I get to work with. I am
also a wife to my high school sweetheart and we have two energetic boys
together. When I say energetic that may be an understatement. Needless to say,
we live a very busy life, but I find that I am more productive with less
downtime.

Publication Date: June 12th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Knocked Up Cover_resize

First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes baby in a baby carriage. Just not necessarily in that order….

Braxton: I should probably be dead or in jail right now. Instead, thanks to some tough love, I worked my ass off and now I own a string of tattoo parlors throughout the Pacific Northwest. And yet the one thing I’ve always wanted—a family—still seems out of reach. When my best friend gets married, I’m just hoping to blow off some steam with the super-hot maid of honor. But after Cara Thompson tracks me down to tell me she’s pregnant, she’s more surprised than I am when I tell her I’m all in.

Cara: For the first time in my life, I’m living for myself—not for my parents and their ridiculous expectations. I gave up on my MBA, dropped out of the Ivy League, and moved to Portland to pursue my dream of becoming an artist. And what’s the first thing I do? Get knocked up. For a tatted-up sex god, Braxton Henley seems way too eager to “be there for me.” Is this guy serious? Maybe. He sure is patient. Because he won’t back down until I admit what I know in my heart: that our one night stand might’ve led me to the one.

MY REVIEW

Well written, a cute story about getting pregnant at the wedding of friends, and falling in love.  A little sexy, but very sweet and easy to jump into book.
