Recklessly His blitz!

Recklessly His 
Nicole Snow
(A Bad Boy Mafia Romance)
Publication date: February 7th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance



Synopsis:


LOVE RECKLESSLY. WITHOUT MERCY, WITHOUT SENSE, BUT NEVER WITHOUT HEART…

SABRINA
He was supposed to be my big break – not my total breakdown. Interviewing Anton Ivankov, the infamous kingpin, was my chance to outrun my broken past. I came ready, determined, but nothing truly could’ve prepared me for him.

Anton wasn’t supposed to be so damned handsome. He wasn’t supposed to have a heart. And he definitely wasn’t supposed to make me a pawn in his prison break.

Now, he’s making me question everything I’ve ever known, replacing common sense with raw desire. Can I escape before he’s done playing wrecking ball – or will this mad need to leap into his bed ruin me forever?

ANTON
I never knew looks could blindside a man until I saw her. Sabrina was destined to be my ticket outta this hellhole and a secret weapon in our street war.
Except I’m not working for family fortune anymore. Every time we touch, it’s lightning, dangerous and divine.

Hurricane Sabrina’s blinding me to the mission. Her twisted uncle needs to pay big time, but she’s got me so distracted I can barely think. I’ll kill for this girl, anything to hear her beg for one dirty, reckless, unforgettable night.

Good thing I never fail. I’ll do whatever it takes to finish this war and end this Romeo and Juliet crap for good. The only happy ending here is making sure her panties, her heart, her everything are mine, and I’m gonna have it all. I always do.

Synopsis:

The night Brittany Wakefield kissed her best friend, Jaime, she lost everything. Who knew one amazing moment could send him running— spinning a web of deceit and avoidance for two years. Stepping onto campus, she’s ready to win him back, even if it involves pledging a sorority she has no interest in.

Erik Draxton fell hard for Brit the moment she walked into the art room. With vibrant purple hair, music in her veins and a rebellious flair, she’s all he’s ever wanted.

While Jaime shrouds himself in secrets, Brit finds herself longing even more to be a part of his world. Unable to watch the girl of his dreams get tossed to the side, Erik decides to take matters into his own hands. But when Erik crosses a line, Brit feels backed into a corner, and discovering Jaime’s secret leaves her devastated.

With a shattered heart from Jaime, and the risk of losing Erik on the horizon, she knows one thing: navigating the social circles can be a suicide mission.

Excerpt

      “So, you must have been really busy, huh?Erik was washing the charcoal off of his hands. I was covered myself and needed the sink.
What do you mean?
Well I thought over the week youd find the time to text me once.He ripped off a paper towel and stepped to the side so I could use the faucet.
I forgot.
Erik looked at me, unable to hide his disappointment. I guess Im not that memorable.
I rolled my eyes and tried to explain, No, Im just really busy.
Oh yeah? With what?
Studies and stuff… ” I didnt sound very convincing. I dried my hands in a hurry, hating being put on the spot.
All the more reason to take a break.He smiled warmly. He was clean shaven tonight.
Yeah, I probably should.I tossed the rest of my supplies inside my art portfolio and zipped it closed.
Cool, so you want to go out sometime? See a movie or something?
Like a date?I said with far too much alarm in my voice than was at all necessary.
Wow.Erik raised his eyebrows, his eyes wide. Dont sound so horrified.
Im not. I just, umI never really thought about it before.
He held the door open and allowed me to walk through. We walked down the hallway to the stairway when he attacked again.
So?
What?
Have you thought about it yet?
I let out a nervous laugh. Wow. Youre relentless arent you?
Well, I can rattle off a list of my qualifications if youd like.
I have a feeling youll tell me even if I say no.We were on the first floor, and made our way outside. It was dark already, and the night air felt crisp and cool.
Why yes, I will. Lets seeI have a clean bill of health, no weird diseases.
I laughed. Well now youre really wooing me, go on.
I also drive a very sleek, uber sexy, ten-year-old blue Ford Taurus. Turned on yet?
I fanned my neck. Keep talking, baby.
I have not one, but two older sisters who have trained me in how to be a perfect gentlemen.
You do open doors for me…” I conceded. Not many guys did that on a regular basis anymore.
Andyou think Im kinda cute.
Actually, youre not my type.I giggled to weaken the blow, but I was being truthful. I liked guys with dark hair, a few tattoos and a brooding disposition. Erik was blond with blue eyes. He was too salt of the earth for me. But, he was cute. Id give him that much.
What? Im exactly your type, here look.He pulled me under a lamppost and took my portfolio and laid it against the post beside his. He held out his hands palm up.
What do you see?
Charcoal stuck in the crevices, you didnt scrub hard enough.
No, its a sign of how artistic I am. What else do you see?
I dont know, lets go.I turned to leave, but he caught my arm and tugged me back.
No, Im seriouslook harder.
I did. I stared at his hands but just saw apricot skin, lines, and calluses. Erik, Im sorry, Im tired and just want to take a hot shower and go to bed.
You can in a minute. Look.He grabbed my left hand and turned it to so it was also palm up. He ran the pointer finger of his right hand over the calluses on his hand, and then the calluses on mine.
How long have you played for?he asked.
I swallowed hard, watching how he continued to trace the rough spots on my fingers. Since I was thirteen.
I started when I was six,he said as he continued to hypnotize himself with the swirls of my skin. Not gonna lie, it felt pretty nice.
Thats a long time,I answered, my voice cracked.
Yeah, I really love it. My guitar is a part of me.He broke his gaze away from my hand and focused instead on my eyes. Oh shit, he really was kinda cute. Id love to hear you play, Brit.
I pulled my hand away. I had only ever played for Jaime. Yeah, my parents heard me practicing in the house, but private concerts belonged solely to him.
How did you know I played guitar?I asked in an attempt to change the subject.
Because I pay attention to the details.His gaze was locked on mine, like he was studying me. Not knowing what to say, I picked up my portfolio, and continued walking.
So, will you go out with me?he asked again, grabbing his portfolio and jogging up beside me.
No.I sighed.
Can I walk you home to your dorm room?
Yes.

Choosing Evil on Goodreads



Excerpt

          Already late, Serafina began sprinting toward her building. She was still deep in thought and failed to pay attention. A second later, she slammed into what felt like a brick wall. Her coffee cup filled with mocha latte went flying, landing all over an impeccable pinstriped suit.
          She stopped breathing when she faced the victim of her morning beverage. A handsome bronzed man, almost two feet taller than Serafina, stood in front of her. His irises were so light they looked almost clear. They held a world of intrigue and reeled her right in. Those iridescent opal eyes were magnificent and haunting, telling her almost everything she needed to know about him. He was a demon.
          His smile was perfection, revealing a set of incredibly beautiful teeth. He was stunning and he wasn't human. Serafina wiped her moist palms on her dress and gave him a half-smile. "I'm so sorry." She rummaged through her purse for napkins or tissues, not fully understanding why the universe had chosen this moment, a time when her best self wasn’t present, to meet a gorgeous demon, like him.
          "No problem, I’m Damon.” His smoky voice made her shudder with pleasure. 
          "Serafina,” she lowered her voice but it didn’t sound natural and it wasn’t nearly as sultry as she wished it had been. She stepped forward to shake Damon’s hand and her heel caught on the pavement. As she began to tip over, he grabbed her arm and pulled her up straight, all in one swift motion. Now attached to him, her arms wrapped around his waist in desperation. When she realized what she was doing, she shuffled away from him and tried regain her balance.
          "Are you okay?" His expression showed his concern. 
          "I'm fine. But, I didn’t have my coffee yet."  Serafina tried to flatten the wrinkles in her dress and right herself.
          Damon laughed, catching her off guard. Relieved, Serafina laughed too. She didn’t expect her attempt at humor to work. Given her morning, she didn't think there was any wittiness in her to begin with, let alone, for it to come with such ease.
          When Serafina’s laid eyes on the mess she had made, her posture went rigid. It was a coffee crime scene, straight out of a forensic textbook. Luminal would have exposed her caffeine attack for all to see. For her assault, she should have been handcuffed on the spot. "I've ruined your clothes.”
Damon brushed himself off and buttoned up his suit jacket. "I’m fine.”

          "Yes, you are." Serafina meant to say it in her head, or at the least under her breath, but it had come out of her mouth loud and clear. Her face became hot in an instant, so she began fanning herself.  
          "This might sound like a line, but I’m glad you bumped into me. Where are you from?” Damon’s eyes twinkled, but his question sounded forced as if he already knew her answer.  
          "Home, today that is.” She failed horribly at making another joke. “But I've lived at the Jersey Shore all of my life." She tried to redeem herself "And, yes, it did sound like a line.” He was definitely the new one in town. "Did you move here recently?"
          Damon shook his head. "I'm as new as you. I've lived in Rivershore for many years. I work in Maroon County and for just as long."
          Rivershore was an upscale town not far from where she grew up in the modest beach town of Silver Lake. Although she had worked in the city for several years, Serafina spent all of her free time at the Jersey Shore, mainly Maroon County. Even more coincidentally, Serafina would turn thirty years old soon, so Damon was technically the same age as her. Demons never aged past the age of thirty.
          From what he said, they had shared the commonality of living and working in nearby towns. So, it didn’t make sense she had never seen him before. Clearly, he had a knack for hiding. However, many years in demon terms could have been any amount of time since demons were practically immortal.
          She studied him for more reasons than one, although he was striking and easy to admire. Damon’s exquisite appearance reminded her of a model or an actor. He had a rugged look, yet he was polished. He wore his expensive suit coupled with his five o'clock shadow as if it were a fashion statement. His ebony hair was long enough to push behind his ears. He was a unique mix of a tattoo artist and a Hollywood movie star. The combination really worked for him.
          Serafina’s eye contact with him was firm but her muscles lost all of their tension. “Where exactly do you work? I can’t believe I’ve never seen you before.” She felt weak as she visually devoured Damon. She was certain she would have remembered him if she had seen him before. The fact their paths had never crossed was inexplicable to her. Then, so was the supernatural. Humans living with a paranormal reality made anything possible.
          Right as Damon was about to answer, his watch alarm went off. He silenced it. "I've got to run, but it was nice meeting you, Serafina. I hope to bump into you again, and soon.”  He touched her arm lightly in a goodbye gesture and once more flashed his award-winning smile.  
          By the time Serafina summoned the nerve to reply, "Me too," he was already gone.

Excerpt

By the time the smell of smoke and roasting meat finally reached Malcolm, and his hole in the ground was completely black, he knew the time was drawing near. The sound of laughter and flutes from above stoked the fires of determination within him, while the repetitive drumbeat counted down the minutes.
His mind wandered as he stared sullenly at the walls of black earth. He clutched his mangled hand to his chest, far too weary for anger. He was humiliated. Over and over again he’d been disgraced, robbed, laughed at. The hardest truth to face was that there still might be more degradation to come. He had wanted everything and succeeded at nothing. Hope was now but a whisper in the past, still carried on the winds, but too distant to hear.
Malcolm pressed his head against the soft earth. He had nothing left to lose and nothing left to love. Even his own mother had become an unseen shadow, abandoning him in his time of need. She was useless to him, as she always had been, and he vowed that if she ever showed herself to him again, he would speak any word that might pierce a mother’s soul.
