Book Hooks is a weekly meme hosted by Marketing for Romance Writers as part of the MFRW Authors Blog. BookHooks gives authors a chance to hook readers every week with their works in progress or latest release. This week, another snippet from my wip, Press Play, part of my Rock Me Baby Series. Check out the blurb below:
Drummer girl for Airi Moon, Play Baptiste is living her dream, loving life and her hot affair with ER Doctor Preston Stevens. Though they have a long standing no-strings, no-complications arrangement, Play can’t help thinking of what her life would be like if she put down roots with Press.
Preston Stevens is a man who could have any woman he wants, only it’s the bad girl drummer that ignites his libido and captures his heart. Their arrangement has worked out well for his chaotic schedule until the night Press is unable to save the woman his best friend loves from a tragic car accident. In an instant, he is reminded that life is short and wants to grab hold of what he knows for sure: his love for Play.
Three months had passed since I’d felt his touch, heat spread over my body, just thinking about him did that to me, as if fire crawled into the crevices of my soul. He had that type of control over me and didn’t even know it, or he did, and had learned to wield it expertly. Doc and I had a special and complicated kind of relationship. Hard to believe it’d been a year since our hookup at the New Year’s Eve after set party, his engaging smile was my undoing and contrasted vividly against his ebony skin. He wasn’t my usual type I remembered thinking when our gazes had locked—which usually didn’t last pass twenty four hours and possibly a number scribbled on the back of a torn piece of paper. But no, the Doc made me feel things, the kind of things women usually give up on and tossed aside as fantasy.
Stay tuned for this Sunday when Press Play continues on with #SexySnippets Sunday.
