Series: Black Balled #2

By: Andrea Smith & Eva LeNoir

It’s all fun and games until egos get hurt.

After a year of a seemingly happily-ever-after, Troy Babilonia throws a curve ball that smacks Larson Blackburn right in the head.

“Bridge to Lonely” has garnered an unexpected success both in the literary world and in the film industry, forcing Larson to accept that he is not the only successful author in the building. But as Troy’s old flame decides to make an appearance, the two alphas are forced to test the strength of their love.

Excerpt

My favorite moment. That second before I enter him. That instant right before our bodies become one, our heartbeats sync into a practiced tempo and our souls merge into a single entity. My hips are positioned between his thighs, Troy’s legs folded against his chest and our gazes lock. “I love you,” I whisper and, before he has a chance to answer, I push my way inside him and still. “I fucking love you, Troy,” I say again, louder this time as I pull out and thrust back in more forcefully. Troy grunts, pulling himself up as he places his feet back on the mattress and wraps a hand around my neck bringing our faces only inches apart. The slight aroma of wine lingering on his breath wafts around my nostrils all mixed with the scent of our sex. Male on male, two dominant men fucking away their concerns. But it’s more than that, isn’t it?

This is everything.

We are everything.

Portrait of a handsome  young man leaning against a rock

Blurb

Taz:

My life is finally perfect. My dreams have all come true. I’m where I want to be with the bureau; having the career I’ve been planning since I did my stint in the military. I’m married to the one and only woman I’ve ever loved; my heart beats for her alone. Together we’ve made beautiful babies that I adore. I’m thirty-three years old and I’m complete.
Then one day, it all changes. Slate recruits me for a temporary assignment that is underneath the radar for a reason. The bureau hasn’t sanctioned it as a priority, but Slate feels it is because of who is involved: Sue Ellen Reynard. Yeah, remember her?

Lindsey:

Our lives were perfect. Taz and I had everything we’d ever hoped for: family, careers and an everlasting devotion to one another. Suddenly nothing is the same. In a single moment, my biggest fear is realized by one phone call from Slate: an ‘agent is missing’.
My agent; my Taz . . .
This is just the beginning of our long journey. Will things ever be the same again?

EXCERPT:

I wiped my hands clean, tossed the towel into the trash and grabbed my wife’s hand, pulling her behind me up the wide staircase to the second floor. Once there, outside of those closed french doors that had been my iron curtain for the past several weeks, I pushed them open, pulled her into the room with me, and then kicked them shut with one swift move.

I pulled her close, raising her shirt up and she didn’t resist; but instead, raised her arms up so that I could pull it up and over her head. I unfastened her front closure bra, releasing her beautiful tits that I hadn’t touched in months.
I lifted her up, and carried her over to the bed–our bed, gently placing her on her back, so that I could straddle her and begin feasting on her breasts.

She moaned beneath me with pleasure. I multitasked, sucking on a breast while I unfastened her jeans, before raising myself back up so that she could shimmy out of them. I pulled my shirt up and over my head, and then quickly unfastened my jeans, shedding them along with my boxers in one swift movement.
I lowered myself back over her, my mouth finding hers. I slowed my pace. I sure as hell didn’t want to come before my dick was even inside of her, but I swear to God, I knew I wouldn’t last long. I kissed her softly, playfully, as my teeth gently nipped at her bottom lip.

Our tongues interlaced, and her arms wrapped around me tightly, pulling my face and upper body even closer to her. I was consumed by her scent, her softness, her sweetness–all of it. She was mine to claim and holy fuck if I wasn’t going to! Nothing–I repeat–nothing was going to keep me from sinking my cock into her sweet pussy and showing her that she was mine–now and always.

And then we heard it.

At the same time.

Fuuckk!

From the room down the hall, Jackson was crying. And it wasn’t just a fussy or whiney cry that would likely stop so that he could return promptly to sleep.
Hell no!

It was a loud-ass wailing, followed by a high-pitched shriek of “Mommeee!”

Over and over.

Seriously dude?

Lindsey squirmed underneath me, pushing against my chest.

“I’ll get him, babe,” I said, getting up.

“No,” she said gently, giving me a quick kiss on the lips. “It’s okay, Taz. He’s calling for me. I’ll get him.”

She launched herself out of our bed, and quickly went to the closet, pulling on her white terry cloth robe, making a quick exit so that she could tend to our son.

The little cockblocker.

I made a mental note to ground his ass just as soon as he was old enough to understand the whole concept.

I swear.

About the Authorandrea smith bio

Stalk Her: Facebook | Twitter | Amazon | Goodreads

I was born and raised in southern Ohio, and with the exception of a brief stint in Dallas, TX, have been an Ohioan most of my life. My dream has always been to write a novel, and back in the early eighties I tried to do just that, having been influenced by authors such as Kathleen Woodiwiss, Johanna Lindsey, Rosemary Rogers and Laurie McBain. I remember writing to all of them through their listed publishers, and the only response I received was from Johanna Lindsey (who lived in Hawaii at the time.

Ms. Lindsey advised me to continue with my dream; and to submit to various publishers again and again. Of course, at that time, publishing e-books yourself was not on the horizon; there were vanity publishing houses of course, but she advised me to avoid those.

So my dream was put on the back-burner for more than 25 years until June of 2012 when suddenly I no longer had a reason not to write a novel. My sons were grown; I found myself without a career (blessedly) and the creative juices flowed once again.

I finished my first novel, “Maybe Baby” in September of 2012; the next two books in the “Baby Series” titled “Baby Love” and “Be My Baby” were published in early 2013. I learned a lot in my first endeavor with self-publishing. I’ve made so many friends as a result that it is over-whelming.

In the spring of 2013, I had an idea for a different type of Alpha, and wrote Book #1 of the “G-Man” Series, titled “Diamond Girl.” This book was well-received, and I followed it with Book #2, “Love Plus One.” These are stand-alone books.

I am finally doing what I love and I sincerely appreciate the wonderful readers who provide feedback and take the time to comment. I hope that with each book, my writing has grown and improved as I strive to publish quality fiction.

EXCERPTS

Excerpt #1
Diamond Girl (Book #1)

Slate was waiting for me at the bus stop when I arrived. I shamelessly flew into his arms as soon as I stepped to the curb. “I fucking missed you,” I said, “And I don’t want to hear shit about it, either.”
He laughed softly, as he wrapped his arm around me, pulling me closely as we walked to his apartment.
Once there, we were like two savages that hadn’t been together for months instead of days. I tore at his clothing, and he tore at mine. Once naked, he unceremoniously lifted me from the pile of clothing and placed me on his bed.
He lowered himself beside me, gently pulling me into his strong arms and kissed me softly all over. His lips brushed my lips, and then moved to my neck, peppering me with kisses as his tongue blazed a path to my breasts. His mouth suckled each one thoroughly, and soft moans escaped my lips as his fingers explored my wet pussy, and then dipped inside of me sending shock waves of pleasure throughout my body.
I watched as his hand moved from my pussy. He brought his fingers up to my lips. “Lick,” he said, pushing his wet fingers against my lips. “I want you to see what you taste like.”

Excerpt #2
Love Plus One (Book #2)

My mom looked at me with a puzzled look on her face. She couldn’t figure out why I would ask about Taz. Her eyes lowered to the ‘FBI’ hoodie I was wearing and her look of puzzlement swiftly changed to one of suspicion.

“That isn’t one of Slate’s hoodies,” she noted, “He only wears the tee shirts.”

I looked down, my fingers plucked a piece of imaginary lint from the front. “No,” I borrowed it from …Taz,” I replied slowly, looking back up at her.

Her expression had now morphed into total confusion.
“Why would you borrow a hoodie from Taz?”
Ahh… geez.
“Because I needed something to wear to bed.
There. I’d said it. The secret was out and I was relieved.

“Lindsey, no,” she said in a loud whisper, clearly horrified. Her hand had moved to cover her mouth.

“Mom, Taz and I have gotten…close. It’s a caring relationship.”

“On your part, I’m sure,” she said, “But, honey–Taz isn’t boyfriend material. I mean the stories I’ve heard from Eric,” she breaks off, shaking her head.
I continued to watch her turning this piece of information over in her head. Waiting.

“So…I take it you’re no longer . . . Uhm…”
Don’t say it, Mom. Please. Don’t. Say. It.
“A virgin?
Damn. She said it.

“That’s correct, Mom,” I replied, hesitantly. “That’s no longer the case.”

Excerpt #3
Night Moves (Book #3)

“Easton,” I said, trying to feel him out. “I’m getting some very mixed signals here.” I tried to pull my hands back, but his grip was strong. He didn’t release his hold.

“It’s simple, I’ve missed being with you.”

“What do you mean? We were just together last night. We spent almost all morning together at the office, we had a working lunch together, and now you’ve hauled me out for dinner. I’d say over the last 24 hours, we’ve spent more time together than most married couples.”

“Don’t play with me,” he quipped. “You know what I’m talking about. This doesn’t bode well for me.”

I sighed audibly. The truth was, my body ached for him as well as for his discipline, but these newly adopted scruples of mine were wreaking havoc with my better judgment. What else could I do but be honest?

“Easton I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss the experience of being with you. It was something else, no doubt about it. But things have changed. There’s no getting around that. I told you how I felt last night. I need to get my priorities in order. Nothing’s a given for me anymore. I have to earn my success. I really want to put my best foot forward with my career. You seemed to understand that last night. It’s just not a good idea.”

“Yes,” he replied quietly, giving what I’d said some thought while rubbing my fingers with his. “Of course, you’re right. It’s not a good idea, assuredly. It would cross the line you set, which by the way, I totally respect and admire the fact that you’re putting your career first, much like me, I suppose.” His gray eyes studied me and my heart did a fast pitter-pat at the feel of his fingers intertwining with mine.

“I appreciate your understanding and thank you for noticing that I’ve taken this new role seriously. I don’t want anything to jeopardize my ability to succeed,” I said.

He was still holding fast to my fingers. My heart continued the pitter-pat rhythm.

“Absolutely,” he replied, earnestly. “You’re to be commended. Still,” he said, his voice dropping an octave and his lips curling into that beautiful smile that couldn’t be good for my pulse, “I just can’t get that picture out of my head.”

Silence…

“What picture?” I asked finally, squirming just a tad in my seat.

“The picture of your beautiful face after I’ve used the crop and when my lips softly place those little butterfly kisses on that very special spot of yours.”

Oh holy Jesus!

“Which one?” I asked raising an eyebrow, immediately regretting it.

“The one right…here,” he said softly, brushing his thumb against that sensitive area I had on my neck, an inch or two south of my earlobe. I knew the one. He continued to lightly caress it, his eyes growing darker.

“Ahh, yes,” I said, remembering the way he’d made me tingle and my toes curl just with his soft kisses on that spot. “That spot.” I shifted uneasily.
Focus, Darcy. Disengage. I repeat: disengage!
“And then, you know, there’s that other special spot of yours…,” he murmured.

“Easton,” I warned, my tone getting stern. I shifted nervously.

“You know the one, love? That very deep, sensitive spot inside of you that loves the feel of my fingers and cock rubbing against it. Such a shame you haven’t had the pleasure of feeling my unsheathed cock. I’m betting my cock jewelry would likely put you over the edge. You’ve wondered about that, haven’t you? When you’re lying in bed at night, when the world gets slightly quieter as your imagination runs a little wilder…” His hand made its way to the nape of my neck, his fingers lightly drawing shapes across the sensitive skin. “I bet you have that night on replay, along with those thoughts of yours when you saw my piercing. And then you wonder what it would feel like to have it gently scrape your clit, slowly at first, but then I’d go a little faster. A little harder. Until I took it deeper and started all over again. And again.”

By this time, I could feel the wet spot in my panties. My lips were dry, so I merely nodded in agreement.

“Oh,” he said, smiling again, “Let’s not forget those very enticing nipples of yours and the way they respond when I taste them, right before I take them full into my mouth to suck. Hard. Quite a rush, isn’t it?”

Oh God!
The server approached, setting our drinks down, ready to take our order.
“Darcy?” Easton nodded, as the server waited, poised to write my order down.
“Uh, nothing for me, I’m still full from lunch.” He turned to Easton for his order.
“Check please.”

Excerpt #4
These Men (Spin-Off) M/F/M

And suddenly, there were another pair of hands in the mix. I hadn’t heard Cain come in, but there he was, intent on joining us.

I felt his calloused fingertips gently rubbing my lower back, and smoothing down over my hips, where his thumbs hooked into the elastic band of my thong, and he slowly lowered it down, where it pooled around my feet on the bed.

Eli’s mouth moved from mine, and I watched as Cain, already stripped down to his tee shirt and boxers, leaned in and captured Eli’s lips with his, their tongues swirling together in a frenzied and familiar passion.

I watched, totally mesmerized by their rhythm and cadence, caught between them, and feeling the heat of their love wrapped around me like a cozy blanket.

I’m married to the one and only woman I’ve ever loved; my heart beats for her alone. Together we’ve made beautiful babies that I adore. I’m thirty-three years old and I’m complete.

My agent; my Taz . . .
This is just the beginning of our long journey. Will things ever be the same again?

 



EXCERPT: #1

Lindsey gave me the silent treatment on the way over to Ralston’s office. “How did you know where I was? I asked.
“Slate.”
“Hey, I said I was sorry. We’re not all that late,” I pointed out to her.
“It’s rude to keep Dr. Ralston waiting, Trace. I don’t do rude. I thought this counseling was important to you, apparently I was wrong.”
I stopped instantly and grabbed her by the arm, pulling her around to face me. “What the fuck, Lindsey? What’s up your ass at the moment?”
She gave me a glare. “It just seems to me that you might find more productive ways to spend your time when you’re here other than flirting your ass off with the resident skank,” she snapped, jerking her arm free and turning her back on me.
Fuck to the no!
“Wait one damn minute,” I growled, spinning her back around to face me. “It just so happens I went to the shooting range because I’ve been trying to qualify to the new standards. It’s a requirement for all agents to recertify. Diana’s job is to ensure that they do.”
“Hmmph,” she snorted derisively, “It looked pretty cozy to me, but that’s neither here nor there because it sounds to me as if you plan on continuing your career with the Bureau once you’re cleared.”
“And why shouldn’t I? It’s the career I’ve had for years, what do you expect?” I was getting angrier by the second, and her eyes were flashing pure pissed green at the moment.
Time for a showdown.
“I don’t know why I would expect any less,” she snapped, “It’s always been about the FBI, right? It’s never been about me and the kids, has it?”
That did it.
I totally lost it when she flung those words at me. No matter how much I still didn’t remember, one thing that I knew, with every fiber of my being, was that what she’d just said had no truth to it. And what really burned my ass was that she knew it too!
I grabbed her shoulders and pulled her up against me. My eyes bored into hers and without thinking, I lowered my mouth to hers and kissed her with a vengeance. It was the first time my lips had touched hers since I’d been back. There was no tenderness; it was my way of claiming her and taking possession of what was mine. She would not deny me this.
Her fists pushed against my chest, and then she attempted to pull away, but her efforts were no match for my strength and determination. My lips worked hers, and my tongue invaded her mouth and possessed it. “Stop,” I growled pulling back briefly to look down at her, “Don’t resist me.”
It was something I might’ve said to a perp that was resisting arrest, but at this moment, I was saying it to my wife.
My mate.
The woman that I loved more than life itself.
And suddenly the realization that this was the truth overwhelmed me. My tempo slowed, morphing from anger to affection; and from frustration to need.
Lindsey felt the change and stopped struggling against me. Her arms looped around my neck, and her lips started responding to mine. It was familiar, and as my tongue once again found hers, we struck a rhythm that was ours. I could feel her anger and bitterness dissipate. It was replaced with a soft sweetness that I remembered, and that I could totally bury myself into if only she would let me.
“Taz,” she moaned softly, finally pulling back a bit.
“Lindsey,” I breathed against her soft lips, my heart pounding in my chest.
“Come on, we’ve got to make our appointment,” she said softly.
And we did.
It was the first joint session that we’d had where Lindsey took her place next to me on the leather sofa, instead of her usual chair in the corner. Ralston didn’t miss it either, quirking an eyebrow as his eyes met mine with just a hint of amusement.
It was a fucking start.

EXCERPT #2

Lindsey:
I took a shower and dressed for bed. Part of me hoped that Taz would tap on my door and suggest we continue what we’d started earlier, but the other part of me prayed he wouldn’t.
What would that serve?
I crawled into our huge bed and, for some reason, it felt emptier than it had over the past couple of months.
I tossed and turned for a few minutes, punching my pillow several times to get it just right and then squeezing my eyes shut, trying to force sleep to descend upon me.
As if that would erase the vision of my husband’s face, his eyes closed, calling Talia “baby girl” as she fucked him, that had now become etched in my brain.
Fuck that bitch!
He was my husband!
He was my lover!
His cock belonged to me, not her. By denying him what I desperately wanted every bit as much as he did, I was allowing that bitch to fuck me over!
I am not a weak person.
It’s time I claim what’s always been mine.
I threw the covers off of me and traipsed down the carpeted hallway to his room, not bothering to knock on the door.
I caught him by surprise as I threw the door open, and saw him standing in front of the tall dresser, rooting around for something to wear. He was fresh out of the shower; a white towel slung low on his hips.
He turned around as he heard my intrusion. I didn’t pause in my mission, making my intent perfectly clear as I closed the distance between us, and with quick swipe of my hand, yanked the towel from his body.
I didn’t miss the quirk of his brow as my eyes perused his body, loving every inch of it, and knowing it was meant for my enjoyment alone. It was my playground; my turf, and I sure as hell was claiming it again.
“Lindsey?”
“On the bed, Taz,” I said, meaning business. “I’m the only one that rides your cock.”
A slow, sexy smile graced his lips The rugged appearance he now rocked as a result of his beard and dark, spiky hair caused me to take a deep breath as his arms reached for me.

About the Author      andrea smith

Stalk Her: Facebook | Twitter | Amazon | Goodreads

I was born and raised in southern Ohio, and with the exception of a brief stint in Dallas, TX, have been an Ohioan most of my life. My dream has always been to write a novel, and back in the early eighties I tried to do just that, having been influenced by authors such as Kathleen Woodiwiss, Johanna Lindsey, Rosemary Rogers and Laurie McBain. I remember writing to all of them through their listed publishers, and the only response I received was from Johanna Lindsey (who lived in Hawaii at the time).

Ms. Lindsey advised me to continue with my dream; and to submit to various publishers again and again. Of course, at that time, publishing e-books yourself was not on the horizon; there were vanity publishing houses of course, but she advised me to avoid those.

So my dream was put on the back-burner for more than 25 years until June of 2012 when suddenly I no longer had a reason not to write a novel. My sons were grown; I found myself without a career (blessedly) and the creative juices flowed once again.

I finished my first novel, “Maybe Baby” in September of 2012; the next two books in the “Baby Series” titled “Baby Love” and “Be My Baby” were published in early 2013. I learned a lot in my first endeavor with self-publishing. I’ve made so many friends as a result that it is over-whelming.

In the spring of 2013, I had an idea for a different type of Alpha, and wrote Book #1 of the “G-Man” Series, titled “Diamond Girl.” This book was well-received, and I followed it with Book #2, “Love Plus One.” These are stand-alone books.

I am finally doing what I love and I sincerely appreciate the wonderful readers who provide feedback and take the time to comment. I hope that with each book, my writing has grown and improved as I strive to publish quality fiction..
