“I want to spend your last semester getting you out of those fucking pearls and on all fours.” 

That’s what he said to me when he found out that with one semester of college left, my father—his colleague—had cut me off. Young, wickedly handsome, and deliciously moody, Senator Graham Delaney’s filthy proposition to cover tuition in exchange for one semester of kink was terrifying and thrilling and offensive. Very, very offensive.

If you’re wondering if I told him to go screw himself after he gave me his ultimatum—if the night ended with me slapping that smirk off his face—that didn’t happen.

Instead, I did what I needed to do.
I just didn’t expect to like it.

Excerpt

He fingers the string of pearls around my neck, and I hold back a tremble when his thumb traces my collarbone. “I know you don’t.” He drops my necklace, backing away from me, and gesturing to a glassed-in balcony with a fantastic view of the city lights and the Washington Monument. Squinting, I see there’s a table set for two out there. “Dinner, Elle, before I decide our time is better suited with my face against your—”

Tuning out that last little bit, I walk a little too quickly onto the balcony, but the clench in my thighs makes me stumble. He steadies me, gripping my hips from behind me, and pouring gasoline on the fire his words started. “Are you always so clumsy?”

Only when hot men who are a decade older than me threaten to go down on me in lieu of dinner. “No. Do you start all your dates like this?” I retort.

“No.” We sit down, and the look he gives me is downright predatory. “I normally fuck first, dine later. I usually prefer the dining to be done alone without all the awkward chit-chat.”

Flushed, I glance away from his face, focusing on an elaborate chess table, complete with tan and black marble pieces, sitting in the far corner of the balcony. Does he play? I’d learned from my maternal grandfather as a child, but I’d probably get my ass taken to town now, especially by someone like Graham. And instantly, my thoughts go south, carnal, and I blame his suggestive words.

I sigh. “You know, you talk about fucking so much it makes me question—”

I release a yelp when he pulls my hand in his under the table and shoves it against his zipper, closing my fingers around the unquestionable—and admittedly very, very impressive—bulge.

Wow.

“That’s not hard, Elle,” he tells me in a low voice, “but if you’re doubtful of my ability to make you forget your fucking name, how to walk—and everything else but yes, please, and more—it won’t take long for you to get me there.”

ReviewWow! What a debut! Graham Delaney…a cocky sexy senator out for revenge had me at the prologue. You can read it here!

Everything you need to know about this new serial by new author Maya St. James is in the blurb.

This is a story that has been done before but it still works for me….here is why Ms. James’ debut is worth a look into:

  • Elle Courtney is strong. She stood up to her dad for her beliefs and I applaud her for it because I was on her side. I was glad that she wasn’t the typical spoiled rich girl but stood up to her dad for something that was important to her despite the consequences (I won’t tell you the reason but I agreed with her wholeheartedly!). I liked her a lot and I think she will appeal to many.
  • GRAHAM! His dirty mouth..their attraction is undeniably hot! Ms. St. James knows how to write a sexy hot alpha male and I want MORE! Though his method to help her has been done before I am excited to see how this couple will grow from here as this attraction is already becoming more. Yes, he wants to possess her then to break her but in the end I can’t help but think that she will break him too; she will get under his many layers and may even be able to touch a part of him that he wants to protect.
  • It’s a serial so its a quick read! I am not a huge fan of serials but wanted to give this one a try and I am so glad that I did. I just couldn’t help BUT WANT MORE!!! I wanted to find out how this would all play out and in the game of chess, the Queen is the strongest so…who will come out on top?!

Addicting, sexy and well written, Maya St. James is a new author to be on the lookout for. I encourage you to give this one a try if you are looking for a quick read to warm these cold winter nights 😉 And I definitely look forward to what Ms. St. James has in store for us next!!!
