slow burn - live

Synopsis

ONE NIGHT. THAT’S ALL IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE.

Reeling from the sudden loss of her sister, Haddie Montgomery has sworn off relationships. All she wanted from Beckett Daniels was a sexy distraction to help her escape her pain for just a little while….There weren’t supposed to be any strings attached—so why can’t she shake the memory of that unforgettable night from her thoughts? Or the taste of his kiss from her lips?

No matter how hard Haddie tries to forget about him, Becks relentlessly tries to prove that she should start living for today. But she is determined to avoid romantic commitment, and she can always use her ex-boyfriend’s reappearance to help snuff out the slow burn within her that Becks has sparked….

Or will fate force her to realize that this kind of connection doesn’t come along very often and a chance at love is worth the risk?

Excerpt

He bites his bottom lip and grimaces. “Fuck!” He growls out to the trees above him and then rolls his shoulders to dissipate some of the stress I see settling there. “Semantics aren’t an excuse. An omission is the same as lying Haddie, but you’re missing the point entirely. It’s not whether it was a lie or not. It’s so damn far from that. It’s you using the sex we’ve had to numb yourself when it should do the exact opposite. It should light your body on fire and burrow so deep under your skin that all you think about is the next time you can have me…because fuck if that’s not what you’ve done to me. So I call your bluff. I’ll keep calling it every fucking day until you admit you want me, that being with me does that to you too…but you won’t will you?” I just remain still, face impassive, body raging with emotion beneath the surface. “You’d rather stand there and tell me you prefer the numb, the void, the nothing, than admit you need me.”

His eyes have their own language as we stare at each other, the power of his words bringing tears to my eyes and knocking the words from my lips. “I was just doing what I thought was best, protecting everyone from more hurt, more everything.” And I hate the numb, I scream silently. I hate it so fucking much that every time we touch you make me feel so alive I realize how dead I’ve felt inside over the past year.

I don’t know why I don’t tell him the rest. Like if I do then I’m just sealing my fate by Murphy’s fucking Law so I keep quiet.

“Really? That’s all you’ve got for me? Next time make sure your eyes and your lips match up City because you’re just adding insult to injury right now. Your refusal to answer is infuriating. Need me Haddie. Use me as your goddamn emotional punching bag or your real one for that matter but fucking need me. I’m not some schmuck who’s going to bolt at the first rough patch and the fact that you still don’t see that is a crock.” He blows out a loud breath, jaw clenched, anger palpable. “I’m so fucking pissed but I’m also so fucking mesmerized by you right now and I don’t know what the hell to do or say. All I know is that protecting someone from the truth is just another way of shutting them out.”

Filthy Desire by Sebastian Ex

A dark and erotic romance Filthy Desire is not one for the easily offended nor the faint-hearted. Intense, dark and sensual this book is definitely one for the mature reader!

Synopsis

My name is Matthew Weston. Don’t call me anything else,  because I won’t respond. And if you think you can get away with whimpering ‘Matt’ while I have you tied to the bed, about to devour you, it’ll end up being your loss.

Men like me don’t talk about feelings. We just don’t.

What men like me do is pound. I pound the asphalt with my running shoes on morning runs. I pound a punching bag in the gym until my knuckles bleed. And when I need a release, I find a beautiful woman sprawled out on her bed, eagerly waiting for my cock, and pound her into oblivion. Yeah, that’s me. I don’t have feelings, and I don’t do love.

At least I didn’t, until the night Ella walked into my office looking like a disgusting junky to interview for a position for The Onyx Club.

She was like no one I’d ever met before. She was timid, reserved, and quite plain with her mousy brown hair and dirty clothes. Ella also had a dark and haunted gleam in her eye. A secret, a past she was desperate to conceal.

And when she called me ‘Matt’ it didn’t seem to bother me. She came into my life and turned it upside down. The only question is, can I screw her out of my system, or will my filthy desire for her keep her by my side?

Review

 I think the title pretty much sums up what you’re in for – filthy, passionate, intense desire and lust, with a drama filled storyline to boot! This is definitely not one for the faint hearted, it’s a dark erotic read only intended for those over 18 and don’t mind reading about the darker side of BDSM.

I have to say I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into when I received this ARC – pages of pure filth? A story with a bit of filth? No story? Well it goes without saying there was definitely some (*ahem* a lot of) filth but I was pleasantly surprised to find a pretty damn good storyline too!

Matthew Weston is the co-owner of a popular club which he owns with his bestfriend and is someone who definitely knows what he wants. Rich, arrogant and dominant, Matthew doesn’t take crap from anyone, including anyone who can’t follow his one rule, don’t call him Matt. His name is Matthew, not ‘Matt’, call him anything other than Matthew and you’re out, even if that someone is a beautiful woman waiting in bed for him.

Matthew doesn’t have a heart, he doesn’t pretend to have one either. He doesn’t love nor does he care – life is simpler that way.

When a scrap of a girl walks into his office looking like a washed up junky asking for a job he can’t say no quick enough. But when he discovers how dire her situation is he takes her in and gives her a job clearing tables.

No matter how hard he tries this girl has a way of getting under his skin – he wants to protect her, claim her and mark her as his, nothing else could be as important as making her his.

Ella is broken. Running from the worst possible hell you could imagine, she’s running scared and desperate. She finds her salvation in Matthew. She knows he’s dominant, has a constant need for control, which after her past life should scare her but he makes her feel safe…protected…perhaps even loved.

As Ella starts to create a life for herself, learning to put her trust in Matthew and allow her confidence to grow, Matthew is changing with her, allowing her to revive the pieces of his heart and teach him how to love.

But when Ella’s past becomes her present once more and her nightmares become reality, will Matthew be able to save her once more or will he be too late?

When we first meet Matthew I wasn’t really sure if I’d warm up to him as he was such an arrogant bastard! I mean some of the stuff he said to Ella when they first meet? What an arse! But the way he builds her back up again and lets her confidence grow definitely won me over. His protective and dominant streaks are super hot and the filth? Holy Smokes that was hot! Definitely high up on the page-on-fire-panties-are-melting scale!

Filthy Desire is Sebastian Ex’s debut novel and I can’t wait to see what he does next!
