✿ Excerpt ✿


My hands lingered on the keys, and she reached out and set her hand on top of mine.

Warmth and light.

It invaded my senses. Clouded my judgment.

My hand flipped over, palm up, and she threaded her fingers through mine. Her head angled, so soft, this girl so fucking good.

"What is it you want, Zee? What is it you can't have?"

You.

Flames leapt into that space between us. Alive and dancing and inciting.

A siren's call.

My tongue darted out to wet my lips, and I was shaking as I lifted our entwined hands. I brushed my knuckles along the silky flesh of her cheek. I swore I saw the trail of pink it left behind, the simplest touch affecting this girl.

She released a shuddered breath. It mingled with mine.

Our mouths were close — too close — and our noses just touched as we hovered in that space.

"I want things that will only ruin me, Alexis. But you... you make me want to wish for them anyway. Make me believe there's a chance that maybe they could belong to me."

Tension tethered us, this rigid band that had me rocking in indecision, every second getting closer and closer as I fought the foolish ideas that tried to take root.

Giving in would only destroy me. But none of that seemed to matter when I leaned in and brushed my lips at the corner of her mouth.

Her fucking delicious mouth.

Because fuck. I just needed a taste. Something to take with me. Something to tuck away, even when doing it felt like some kind of brutal tease.

Alexis gasped at the contact. I edged back the barest fraction, and she was panting these tiny breaths.

Breaths I was breathing.

Her eyes locked on mine. Hungry and pleading. Brimming with belief and hope.

I ran my thumb over the corner of her mouth where my lips had just been. "You are so beautiful. I've never met a girl quite like you."

Something so genuine took hold of her expression. "I hardly know you... and somehow you make me feel like I am. Like when you look at me... you see the person I always hoped I'd become."

Everything stilled at her words.

At her confession.

Because that's what I wanted.

For this amazing girl to know the way I saw her. That in her space, I felt something different from all the bullshit I'd dealt with for all my life.

I felt like someone different. Someone better. Like the person I'd once hoped I'd become.

I clutched her stunning face in my hands, searching for resolve. For that dedication that right then somehow felt out of reach.

"Zee," she whispered.

That was all it took for that band to snap.

My hands drove into her hair. And my mouth? My mouth was devouring hers.

Frenzied in its demand. Pleading the same way as her eyes had been pleading with me. Saying all the things I couldn't ever say.

Our tongues tangled, and my spirit coiled. Heat spread in a flashfire of need. Lust rose in the knitted air, like this intangible greed we both were grappling for, searching for the fastest way to get to the peak.

Our hands searched and clawed and explored. We were a mess of limbs as we struggled to get closer to each other where we sat side by side on the bench.

"Zachary... Zachary," she whimpered, grasping me by the back of the head. She crawled forward so she could straddle me.

Motherfuck.

My hands sank into her hips, and she edged up and pressed those gorgeous tits against the wild beat thundering in my chest. A groan rumbled out from somewhere in my soul.

She felt so perfect. So good.

I wanted to touch her. Explore her. Claim her.

My dick raged against its confines, all that delicious heat at the apex of her thighs grinding against my jean-covered cock.

It'd been too long. Too damned long. I was goin' out of my mind.

♡ Excerpt Reveal ♡ Plus One by Aleatha Romig @AleathaRomig @InkSlingerPR #ExcerptReveal #ComingSoon #PreOrder #OneClick




Plus One
by
Aleatha Romig

Release Date: May 16th 2017





✾ Synopsis ✾


A fun, sexy new stand-alone from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

He's sexy and confident, the kind of man every woman notices. You know, the one with the to-die-for body and panty-melting smirk. And then there's the way his designer suits drape over his broad shoulders and big... well, we've all heard the rumors, the ones that say he's up for any challenge.

But I can't see him that way. He's my boss — technically one of the owners of the company where I work — and definitely not in my league. Men like him don't notice women like me, and they don't date them.

And I don't date men like him.

Until that one time that I catch him in a compromising position when I'm also in need of a last-minute date for a wedding... and then it's not real. It's blackmail.

For one weekend, he's my plus-one.

Beautiful and unobtainable.

From the moment she walked into my office with those stunning blue eyes and crazy sensual curves, she's been on my mind. Three years and never once has she acted interested in me. Usually I flash a million-dollar smile and women fall to their knees, some literally.

Not her.

Then on the occasion that I agree to let another woman do that — fall to her knees — guess who happens to catch us?

It may not be the most conventional way to get on her radar, but I didn't get this far in business without knowing when to seize an opportunity. If this sexy little firecracker with perfectly kissable lips thinks she can blackmail me into attending her cousin's wedding, I'm going to jump at the chance to be her plus-one.

You love her darker side. Now it's time to meet Leatha, the lighter side of Aleatha, as she trades her renowned twists and turns for laughs and love with this sexy new stand-alone romance, PLUS ONE.

✿ Excerpt ✿


Chapter 1


I push the thought of my mother's call away and concentrate on my friend, Shana. As I do, the slippery napkin escapes my hold. Quickly, I slide from my seat to retrieve it.

"Excuse me," a deep voice says as black leather loafers stop precariously close to where I'm now kneeling to rescue my napkin.

Seeing the shoes, I look up and suck in a deep breath.

Towering above me are long legs covered in tailored trousers. As I follow them up, they lead to a trim waist, a black belt, and a white shirt that buttons over a broad chest. I barely swallow the lump in my throat as I recognize the wide shoulders covered with the matching suit jacket. Seizing the napkin, I stand, suddenly face to face with one of the owners of the company where I work.

My face burns with embarrassment as his shimmering green eyes narrow and head tilts. Inches away from me is one of the handsomest men I've ever met. He should be on the cover of GQ, not gracing the halls of Buchanan and Willis.

His firm lips form a tight smirk and cheeks rise in amusement. "Miss Jones."

Staring into the sea of emerald, I try to pretend I wasn't just on my knees in a chic restaurant in front of Duncan Willis.

"Mr. Willis," I respond, my voice cracking. Nervously I take a step backward. As if the moment weren't awkward enough, I wobble, teetering precariously on my high heels.

Swiftly, he reaches out, grabs my elbow, and steadies my footing. Though he just saved me from making an even bigger fool out of myself by falling face-first into what I can only imagine is a hard, defined chest, my mind is suddenly consumed with the electricity of his touch. The energy heats my skin as his grasp lingers.

✿ Excerpt ✿


"Are you part of the execution team?"

I swallowed, the thought of lying to her heavy in my throat. There was a reason we never divulged who was on the team. The stigma and attacks on our humanity would come from all angles, and in the end, it would change nothing. I am an executioner. It's a job. Someone has to step up and do it. I was simply one of the few who were willing to swallow the emotional baggage that comes with putting another human being to death. I'm willing because maybe, just maybe, I'll finally be able to bury the beast in me that snarls and snaps, thrashes and rages, thirsty for vengeance against the unknown monster that took my sister away.

"You know I can't talk about that, Genevieve. I'm sorry."

Her gold-green eyes sparked. "I thought so."

I frowned, not answering.

"Okay. Let's try this... hypothetically speaking, if someone were a part of the execution team at the prison, would they take part in every execution?"

"Theoretically, barring some certain circumstances, yes. Most likely. The warden has assembled a team he trusts and that rarely changes."

She nodded and forked up a bite of meat. "How do you think those people feel? About killing another human being?" Her gaze was direct and unwavering.

I set my fork down and thought carefully about my reply. "I think they don't think about it like that."

"Does it make you sad?"

A beat passed heavily between us. Two. "No."

She said nothing, returning to her meal, and I followed suit. Eventually, the cloud that filled the room seemed to dissipate as she digested my answers. "Tell me about your brothers. I'm dying to know about them."

"Why?"

She shrugged one shoulder and sipped her wine. "I just am. Are they like you? Big and sexy and moody?"

"I'm not moody."

She laughed. "Not denying the big and sexy, huh?"

I fought the grin that wanted to bust loose and forked my salad. "We're all big and sexy, I won't lie."

"I'm sure. What else?"

I thought of my brothers and our time together yesterday. Even as distant and strained as we'd become, I knew we all still loved each other fiercely. "Well, I'm the oldest. Levi is next. He's a businessman in Austin, divorced, no kids. Jamison is a SWAT sniper in Dallas, goofy and single. Joshua works as a criminal profiler for the FBI in Virginia. He's brainy and quiet and single, as far as I know anyway. And the baby is Silas. He's an up and coming MMA fighter and he lives in Houston."

"So none of you have girlfriends or wives? Really?"

I shrugged. It sounded weird when you put it that way. "Other than Levi, we've all managed to avoid it."

One brow lifted in challenge. "Avoid it?"

"Yeah." I scooped up the last of my food.

"Are any of you gay?"

I nearly choked. "No." I grabbed my water and sipped. "Why would you ask that?"

"Well, no women. Maybe there are men."

"No. Only careers." And grief, but I didn't admit that out loud.

Her foot suddenly found my leg under the table. "I'm glad to hear it."

I ran a hand under her jeans and up her calf. "Interested in my brothers?"

"No."

"Glad to hear it." I caressed down her leg and massaged her instep.

Her eyes fluttered closed as I continued rubbing her foot. Suddenly, I was overwhelmed by the need to taste her again. "Are we done here?" My voice was gruff, even to my own ears.

Her eyes slid open and met mine. "I'm not sure."

"I am." Keeping our gazes locked, I stood and rounded the table to stand beside her. "Get up."

Her eyes flared, but she did as she was told. I felt her heated focus on me as I shoved our dinner dishes to the side of the table, making room in front of us. "Sit." I indicated the spot where her plate had just been.

She only hesitated a moment, the air becoming thick between us. The blood was rushing through my veins like fire and I desperately needed to quench it. My erection strained behind my jeans and it was all I could do to control myself when she looked at me like she was getting off on my dominance. I wasn’t a kinky man, but I definitely liked to be in charge, in the bedroom and out. Call it the Ranger mentality.
