Paranormal Romance
Pyte /Sentinel Series

A bit about the Pyte/Sentinal Series
Pytes live in a world where their immortality, strength, speed and ability to withstand the sun should make them gods on earth. Instead they are forced to live in fear. Their ability to create a stronger more powerful army of vampires has Master Vampires all over the world waging wars to find them and Sentinels determined to get them.
Even as they fight for their freedom they know that one day they’ll have to choose a side….
Thousands of years ago a war was started on earth between God and Lucifer after Lucifer left the confines of Hell to steal much needed human souls.
Out of anger, God punished Lucifer, sealing him in Hell and away from his children. God decreed that as long as there was even one human soul left on earth, Lucifer could not leave Hell. Knowing that he couldn’t outright destroy God’s precious children without feeling God’s wrath, Lucifer did the only thing he was allowed, he released one Vladerc demon on earth.
He used God’s rules against him not caring that once the demon was released he could not release another. It didn’t matter. He’d chosen well. The Vladerc demon not only fed on humans stealing their souls, but the demon could also turn humans into hybrid Vladercs who would steal more human souls until only his demons inhabited the earth freeing him. Free Will stopped God from interfering on Earth leaving Lucifer’s demon to spread his disease.
Or so he thought….
Using the rules to his advantage God sent five of his elite Angel warriors to earth every ten years. To keep them from becoming too powerful or easily detected by Lucifer’s children he split their souls in half and merged each half with a human soul. He named them Sentinels for they protected his greatest treasure, his children. He blessed them with longevity, strength, speed and the only thing he could think of to thank them for their sacrifice as well as keep them loyal to him….
A soul mate.

Every neighborhood, whether it’s located in the best part of town or across the tracks has one very important thing in common: they all have the one neighbor that you wish you could club upside the head, throw in the back of your trunk, and dump a hundred miles into the woods all while giggling hysterically and promising yourself that this time would be different, this time he wouldn’t find his way back.You know who I’m talking about.
It’s the person that steals your newspaper, lets his dog walk on your freshly mowed lawn, blasts their music at all hours of the night, steals your parking spot, leaves their alarm clock blasting twenty-four seven and just annoys the living hell out of you. What if I told you that this person really wasn’t so bad once you got to know him and that by the time I’m done spinning you a tale that not only will you find all of his quirks endearing, but that you’ll fall head over heels in love with him? What would you say then?
Don’t believe me? Well, I guess there’s only one way to find out. Check out my Neighbor From Hell series and see for yourself

 Newest Release!


There was something seriously wrong with Marty. That was the only explanation that she could come up with. Why else would she feel this way for the biggest SOB in town? Granted, he was also the hottest man in town, but he was also arrogant, callous, and determined to drive her away even as he drove her crazy with his touch. She should just walk away from him and probably would if it wasn’t for this connection that she’d always had with him that kept making her want more with the one man that couldn’t give her anything more than heartache.

He should have left and never looked back when he’d decided to finally do the right thing and push Marty out of his life, but instead he stuck around to torture himself by staying close to the one woman that he could never allow himself to have. She deserved better than him, better than the tortured existence that he led and better than the horrifying future that waited for him.

Desperate to break free…

I've spent my entire life under my father’s thumb, but now I'm finally free to make my own choices. When my roommate dragged me to my first college party, I met Finn Coram and my life turned inside out. He knows how to break the rules and is everything I never knew I wanted. A Marine by day and surfer by night, he pushes me away even as our attraction brings us closer. Now I am finally free to do whatever I want. I know what I want. I choose Finn. 

Trying to play by the rules...

I always follow orders. My job, my life, depends on it. I thought this job would be easy, all the rules were made crystal clear, but when I met Carrie Wallington, everything got muddy. She's a rule I know I shouldn't break, but damn if I don’t inch closer to the breaking point each time I see her. I’m ready to step out of line. And even worse? I’m living a lie. They say the truth will set you free, but in my case…

The truth will cost me everything.


Carrie Wallington just wanted to be a normal girl for a change. With her dad being a Senator in Washington D.C., she was always in the public eye. She hated it. She didn’t have any real friends. All the ones that she did have were either bribed or paid somehow to be her friend. Her father was very controlling and protective over every single thing that she did. She couldn’t truly be herself. She wanted to go off to college away from her parents, away from the life that she lived and start brand new where no one knew her history. Going to school across country would do just that. She would find out who she truly was. Hopefully.

Finn Corman has followed orders all his life. His mother died of cancer so it’s just him and his father. He is a Marine so he lives a very structured life. Living by orders is all he knows. His father also works for Senator Wallington so he needs to behave a certain way to uphold that image. Moving back to California is something he has always wanted to do. It brings back memories of his childhood with his mother and allows him to live a much more carefree lifestyle.

Carrie met Finn outside of a frat party. He is also the complete opposite looking of her, by the way he is dressed and the tattoos he is sporting Finn is just a Marine who loved to surf during his free time. Carrie loved that. He was free to be out in the ocean. Something she hadn’t experienced. Her father would die if she did something like that. So when Finn agreed to teach her how to surf, she wanted to start right away. She didn’t see the usual bodyguards that her father sent along with her so she sort of felt a little relief from that but she knew they were hiding and spying on her. She bought a board and a suit and Finn taught her how to surf. It was hard, but she was very persistent in getting it right. She felt free out in the ocean. Very liberating. No one could control her out there.

Carrie realized she was having a good time hanging out with Finn. He also rode a motorcycle. Another first for her. She is always careful in who she associates with, not only because of who her father is, but also because of the past she has had. She  put walls up because she has been lied to and betrayed before. She is not going down that road again.  But being with Finn brings out these feelings that she has never felt before. They have such a natural connection, it’s as if they've known each other for a long time. Finn feels it too. There’s something about Carrie that he enjoys. Spending time with her has become an obsession.

The more time they spend with each other the more the more personal they get. Carrie is not the normal stuck up rich person. She donates her clothes to fellow students, the poor and volunteer and the food shelter. Finn finds himself opening up to her freely and telling her things he wouldn’t normally tell anyone. He doesn’t open up to anyone. He doesn’t have a good past when it comes to women. But with Carrie, he feels as if he wants to tell her everything. He wants her to see her experience her freedom and he wants to be the one to help her. He is trying to fight the urge to take her and bury himself inside of her but he is trying so hard to control himself because he knows they can’t be anything more. They are too different. He can’t give her what she deserves and she deserves better than him. When he can’t resist any longer, there is no turning back. She can’t resist him either.

While Carrie is in school she meets a guy named Cory. Her father would definitely approve of him. Not only does he do well in school, but he comes from a well-established family. Carrie and Cory have several classes together and have become study partners and friends. However, on more than one occasion Cory has tried to make several moves on Carrie. He has even kissed her. But he doesn’t make her feel the same way that Finn makes her feel. But he’s not getting the hint that she doesn’t want him.

Finn doesn’t like the idea of the two of them hanging out together and feels nothing but jealousy. So he takes matters into his own hands. Everyone takes him for just a bum surfer but he surprises Carrie when he wants to help her study. He knows that by her spending time with him, she is taking time away from studying and he doesn’t want her to take time away from that, but he is selfish enough that he will help her, with an incentive of course. He cooks her dinner while she studies and he is going to play a game with her to help her study. With sexual incentives of course. That definitely gives studying a whole new meaning.

 Things seem to be going well between Carrie and Finn. They are enjoying each other’s company. Things are getting hot in the bedroom. Heck they are even falling in love with one another faster than they ever thought possible. But what happens when one’s secret is revealed? Are they able to recover from it?

Will Carrie be able to forgive Finn from keeping his secret? Will they be able to move past it or will it bring an end to the both of them? Will it push Carrie and Cory closer together? Will Finn fight to keep Carrie if he truly loves her?

This book had me all over the place. My heart broke for Finn and the situations he was put in. I wanted him to be able to be up front with Carrie about his feelings for her but I knew he just couldn’t, as much as he wanted to. And I knew how hard it was for him to stand in the shadows and try to watch her move on. I wanted to scream at her so bad not to listen! My heart broke for Carrie as well. Living the life she did. She was just a girl who wanted a little bit a freedom in life. She didn’t choose to have that life, she was born into it and she had to deal with it. And it sucked that she was so used to betrayal. But I admire her for having the strength to deal with it all those years. I was really excited when they finally got their shit together and realized they belonged together. Then Jen throws another curveball at us again. I loved the book, I really did, up until I got to the cliffhanger at the end.  So now I am anxiously waiting for the next book to see what happens next! Good job Jen.

BLOG TOUR - Safe With Me by Kristen Proby



Keeping others safe is what Caleb Montgomery does.  He’s never had a problem taking on an assignment, whether it was during his dangerous SEAL days or his most recent job of training war mercenaries.  But being assigned to keep Brynna Vincent and her adorable daughters, Maddie and Josie, safe from an unknown threat has thrown Caleb off his axis.  Hot for the tall brunette since she came back to town more than a year ago, being close to her day in and day out is cracking Caleb’s resolve to keep his hands off her gorgeous body and his head in the mission.

Brynna is sick and tired of being afraid.  All she wants is a normal, quiet life for her and her precious girls. Just as she’s settling into her new home in Seattle and feeling safe again, Caleb shows up on her doorstep insisting the danger is as high as ever.  But whether she needs to be sheltered from the threat in her past, or from the intense emotions she feels for the sexy, protective man sleeping in her home, remains to be seen.  What will happen if Brynna and her girls fall in love with a man so broken he may not be able to protect them from the danger that threatens, much less himself?”

SAFE WITH ME is the fifth book in the With Me In Seattle series, and continues to follow this tight-knit, loving family through life’s trials and tribulations with humor, passion and everlasting love.


As if I didn't expect Kristen to write another FABULOUS book...  I am in love with the Montgomery Men, Nate, Luke, Leo and Mark.  Most of you already know, Will Montgomery holds my heart, however Caleb sure did give Will a run for his money.  Caleb is a total alpha male and is sexy as all hell in Safe With Me.   It was a struggle deciding what brother was hotter.  Kristen surely brought us a  "Hot Navy SEAL" MONTGOMERY in Safe With Me.

We were introduced to Brynna in "Under The Mistletoe" (Isaac & Stacy's Novella).  Brynna is Stacy's cousin who calls Isaac and tells him she needs to leave Chicago immediately.  We didn't know why, all we knew is that the Montgomery Men thought that Brynna and her girls needed to be protected.  Protection from what, we had no clue.  Caleb Montgomery has the honor of staying with Brynna, because she refuses to uproot the girls again and move in with Caleb or Matt. 

"This is what we do in this family, Brynna.  We protect our own." ~ Caleb

Caleb is a Navy Seal who recently decided not to re-enlist.  Caleb is sex on a stick.  He is built to kill, he has a 10 pack of abs, blond hair, piercing blue eyes and a personality that screams, he likes to take charge.  Caleb is a man of few words, but when he speaks, you listen.  He is the perfect combination of sexy, alpha, caring, loving and assertive and possessive.

The sexual tension between Brynna and Caleb is off the charts.  It is obvious that the two of them are attracted to each other and have been since Brynna arrived in Seattle over a year ago.  Brynna hasn't been with a man since she and her husband divorced four years and seven months.  So needless to say, Brynna needs orgasms and Caleb is the perfect man to give them to her. 

"Caleb has given me a permanent case of wet panties. " ~ Brynna
Caleb is sexually frustrated as well, and he can't keep his eyes off of Brynna.  Just the talk of orgasms, pisses Caleb off.  Caleb is torn between acting on his feelings for Brynna or just staying friends.  He considers her family and he has concerns with starting a relationship with Brynna in case it doesn't work out.  Caleb is struggling with demons of his past and feels as though he is not good enough for Brynna and her girls. However, Brynna seems to think otherwise.  Caleb is all she has ever wanted in a man and he is great with her daughters.  He is loving, nuturing and treats the girls as if they were his own. 

The sexual tension between Caleb and Brynna continues to grow, and Caleb has acted on them on an occasion or two, but Brynna wants more.  Brynna is growing frustrated with Caleb and wants him to act on his feelings and stop pulling away when things get hot and steamy.

"Don't fucking touch me like that again unless you plan to finish what you start."~ Brynna

Caleb's doing what he does best, protecting the ones he loves.  When Caleb finally admits to himself his feelings for Brynna he doesn't know how to handle their relationship anymore.  Caleb needs to keep Brynna and her girls safe, that is his number 1 priority.  They have become his world.

"Do you understand what it would do to me if someone got to you?" 'It would destroy me if you or those babies were hurt, Brynna.  You are necessary to my survival, goddamn it, and I'll do whatever I have to do to keep you safe and whole, but I need you to talk to me when something feels wrong and I need you to do as you're damn well told!" ~ Caleb

You would think that this book would be about Caleb just keeping Brynna and her girls safe, but it really isn't.  Caleb is battling his inner demons and needs some saving of his own. 

 "You're safe with me, babe." ~ Brynna

 Can Caleb forgive himself ?  Can Brynna help Caleb move on from his past?  Will Caleb finally admit his feelings to Brynna?   When things get tough, will Caleb run?  Will Brynna be able to protect her family, if Caleb can't?  Can Brynna, Caleb and the girls be a family?     

In Safe With Me, we get to see more of Nate & Jules, Luke & Natalie, Leo & Sam, Will and Megan, Isaac & Stacy, Matt and Mark.  We were left hanging at the end of Rock With Me when Caleb calls a mandatory family meeting.  You are going to be quite shocked by the revelation that is revealed.

Kristen never ceases to amaze me with The With Me In Seattle Series. She outdoes herself with each book she adds to the series.  I have to say, this is by far one of my favorite series.  I can read these books over and over again, and never grow tired of them.  You feel like you are part of this HUGE family.  I LOVE the family nights, and bond that they have.  I sometimes wish I was part of this amazing family sitting there during family night talking about how hot our men are and laughing about orgasms. 

The With Me In Seattle Series is a MUST read !!! 

This review was prepared by Heather. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.


Five places Caleb would take Brynna and why:


1.   The Oregon Coast – The coast of Oregon is beautiful, and one of Caleb’s favorite places is Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach, Oregon. He’d love to take Brynna there for a fun, romantic get-a-way!


2.   San Juan Islands – A day trip on a boat through the San Juan Islands whale watching with Brynna and the girls would be a great way to spend the day as a family.


3.   Paris – Caleb would love to whisk Brynna away to Paris to show her the beautiful city and kiss her at the top of the Eiffel Tower.

4.   Disneyland – The twins would love to see their favorite princesses at Disneyland and Caleb plans to take the whole family there very soon.

5.      Their new home – Caleb has plans to build or buy the home of Brynna’s dreams.

The Rebel Walking Series continues with Taron and Ivy's story, Heaven Sent. The explosive chemistry that these two share ignites a relationship of epic proportions.

He has been dubbed 'the panty stealer', but Taron Walker has his eyes set on the beautiful, full of life, Ivy Adams. Ivy doesn't usually put up with the player type, yet there is something about Taron that has her intrigued. Taron must leave to go on tour with Rebel Walking and Ivy will be left to face serious struggles on her own. Will she reach out to Taron for help, or will she push him away? Can these two find happiness in each other's arms, or will they tear each other's world apart?


Ivy Adams and Taron Walker have always had an attraction to each other. I mean how can they not? She is beautiful, confident and carefree.   He is hot as hell, charming, cocky and the lead singer of Rebel Walking.  They have been fighting their attraction for each other since “In a Heartbeat.”  They’re constantly bickering and teasing one another.  It’s like they feed off of each other but they do it all in fun.  They enjoy it.  But it’s more like flirting to them and they get a kick out of it.  It’s like it turns each other on.  They’re always sneaking looks at each other.   There is no doubt that there is an attraction between the two of them that goes deeper than just sex.
“She lines up our faces again and we just look into each other’s eyes being only separated by inches. I have always known that there is a truth about her, but you really get a deep look into her this close.  I can feel her threats. I can tell she is scared to let me in. I can see that she is past the point of letting this be a casual fuck.” ~ Taron
Ivy has put up some very strong walls around her heart to protect herself from men.  Her best friend Eaven has always been there for her and her family was kind enough to take Ivy in as their own.  She may seem wild and carefree to the outside world, but when she’s alone, she’s very quiet and closed off.  She doesn’t like to share her feelings much and doesn’t like to depend on anyone.  She’s a very independent person who doesn't like to ask for help.  Ivy has never been shy in the bedroom, but she has always been selective on who she sleeps with as well.  She doesn’t just sleep with just anyone.

Taron on the other hand, is the biggest man-whore alive. Since he’s the lead singer for Rebel Walking, women throw themselves at him.  He pretty much fucks anything that walks.  He’s not looking for a relationship and he’s only looking for fun so he’s all for it.  He doesn’t feel anything anyway when he’s with all these women.  Taron lives with his other two brothers, Talon and Holden.  Talon is engaged to Eaven who is also Ivy’s BFF.  Taron is always trying to get Ivy to bed with him but she’s always turning him down.  She doesn’t want to be another notch on Taron’s belt.
“I don’t want to share” ~ Ivy 
“I don’t have any intentions of sharing you” ~ Taron
Ivy has always had torn feelings when it has come to Taron. She knew it was more than a physical attraction when it came to him.  When he came near her, he gave her feelings she’s never felt before.  But she didn’t want to be just another girl to him.  So she fought him continuously.  It was the night before he went on tour when she gave in to those feelings and decided to take the plunge.  He was so kind and gentle to her, yet rough and wild at the same time.  She has never seen that side of him before.  She was falling fast and hard.  Taron seemed to want to try for Ivy and they made plans to stay in touch while he was away.  This was a different side she has never seen before.  A complete man-whore wanting to stay faithful.  But something happened later that night, which would change the course of things. Ivy’s life would take a turn, but not so much for the better.

Taron left for the tour with a lot of things left unsaid between himself and Ivy, but he wouldn’t let her explain and she wouldn’t tell him the truth.  She was stubborn and so was he.  And if he knew more about the truth behind her “crazy stalker” he would leave the tour and protect her.  The band and the tour is what he worked so hard to get to and she was not selfish enough to let him give that up.  She needed to keep her feelings for Taron at bay so he can pursue his dream.  Ivy would deal with this alone.

When Talon told Taron what Ivy was going through at home, Taron dropped everything and went home to be with her.  Just one look at her when he arrives, tears him apart. The wild girl he left, is lost and torn apart.  He is outraged at what happened to her; he wants to protect her.  The Taron we all know is different from the Taron we all get to know when he is with Ivy.  When he is with Ivy, she seems to bring out a whole new side of him.  He is so sweet, kind, caring and puts her needs before anything.  He shows a much more sensitive side when he is around her.  He definitely has really deep feelings for her and it shows just by the way he looks at her.
 “Let me in and don’t push me away. My life is fucked up with you gone.  I need you to feel this every day.  I need to feel the way you affect me just being near.  You’re driving me crazy and I can’t do it anymore.  Please Ivy, let me in.” ~ Taron
As much as Ivy wants Taron to stay, she cannot have him risk his future for her.  So she fakes her feelings for her friend Aiden (AKA cowboy) so that Taron leaves her alone.  Taron does not like him and is jealous of him since he is always coming to her rescue.  This does the trick for now.  But it does not keep her stalker away.  Her stalker knows no end.  This is supposed to make Ivy happy since she does not want a relationship anyway, but yet, why does she seem so sad all the time?  She tries so hard to be strong for herself, but she can only take so much on her own.

Will Taron be able to break through Ivy’s thick walls?  Will Ivy be able to let Taron in?  Can Taron help Ivy through her difficult situation?  Will they be able to get their act together once and for all?

I loved the chemistry between Ivy and Taron and their playful banter.  And when they finally got together, hot damn!  My emotions were all over this place.  My heart completely broke for Ivy! S he had to deal with the insecurities she had with Taron and also with her crazy stalker.  Her perfect night with Taron was ruined.  No one should ever have to go through that.  Yet, she was so strong to face this on her on and not burden anyone else.  She wanted Taron to focus on his future on not her problems.  That takes a lot of strength. I don’t think I would have been able to do that. There was a lot of push and pull of feelings for one another. I just wanted them to get over themselves and just get their act together!  Loved that the entire family is included in the book.  Hilary made me feel a part of the family.  This was a very quick read for me.  I finished it in about two hours.  I absolutely loved this book! The only thing is that I wished it was a bit longer.  I was left wanting more at the end. I can’t wait to read more! Great job Hilary!

Excerpt Chapter 1

He is everywhere.
In my thoughts.
In my dreams.
In my air.

I’m trying to fight my attraction to Taron, but my heart doesn’t seem to listen to my mind.  I know it’s a disaster waiting to happen if I give in, yet I still keep thinking of the possibilities.

He has a past.  So do I.
He loves to flirt.  So do I.
He will be leaving to go on tour tomorrow.  I won’t.
He was there for me when I thought I lost my best friend.  The title ‘best friend’ doesn’t really do what we have justice.  Eaven is my sister.  We may come from different blood, but in all aspects that count we are family.  A couple of months ago Eaven was kidnapped and driven into the river by her boyfriend’s ex.  Taron never left my side the entire time we were searching for her or when she was recovering in the hospital.  He has been to my apartment to check on me daily since Eaven has been staying with Talon to recover. 
Don’t get me wrong.  He has continuously made advances toward me since we found out Eaven was going to be ok.  He flirts non-stop, but I’m a girl who likes all of that attention.  I just don’t want to share my attention with other girls.
I have to decide if I can handle sharing him before I give myself to him completely.  After all he is the lead singer in the band ‘Rebel Walking’.  They are going to be gone more on tour now.  This will be their second time to go on tour with main stream bands.  They were such a huge success the first time, they were chosen to be the opening band at every single one of ‘Beckoning Reality’s‘ concerts.  I heard all of the details from Taron when he called to check on me while he was away on the first tour. 
I’ve managed to fight him off until this point, but I’m sure since he leaves in the morning, he will be trying extra hard tonight to get me to cave. 
Smitty has kicked off a celebration to send the band off in style.  It looks like everyone has shown up to see the band one last time.  This place is packed.
Eaven and I went shopping for new outfits this week.  She wants to look exceptional tonight since she is sending her fiancĂ© off for four weeks.  She is just recently engaged to Talon and they are perfect for each other.  I am so excited that she found someone who makes her happy and treats her right.  He just happens to look identical to the guy that I am fighting myself to not like.  Talon and Taron Walker are identical twins.  The story of the two sisters falling in love with twin bad boys is one that never comes true.

I look over and see Taron at the band’s reserved table talking to his twin.  My eyes shift to his broad shoulders and the dark, tight shirt that doesn’t leave much to the imagination.  I’ve been in his arms a few times and I know that his chest and stomach are sculpted and just as defined as the shirt makes it appear.  He has dark hair, almost black.  He wears it messy so that it looks like he just got out of bed.  The look really works for him.  I know that he does put effort into his hair because I have been stuck waiting on him to get ready.
He jumps up to pester his older brother Holden and I begin to appreciate the view of his ass in those jeans.  His jeans hang just right, just the way I love to see.  I’ve never let him know that I appreciate how he looks.  He would never let me live it down if I did.
Eaven leaves me to make her way to Talon.  I see Taron begin to search the room as soon as he sees her arrive.  He spots me and starts to look me up and down.  His eyes never leave me as he stalks across the room.
“Poison Ivy!  It is such a pleasure to see you out for the kill tonight.”  He takes his index finger and runs it down my chest and into the valley of my cleavage causing my shirt to lower.  He stops just before he exposes me.
“Do you want to lose that finger?”  I really want him to continue, but I would never tell him that.
“I would love for you to take my entire finger.”  He removes his digit from my chest and I know his meaning behind his reply.  He has never been shy about his sexual desire with me.
“In your dreams.”  I turn away from him to begin my walk to the table.  He stops me after only a few steps.  He grabs my hips and holds me against him.  I can feel him invading my space again.  He is consuming all of my senses.  He leans down to whisper in my ear.
“Yea that pretty much sums it up.” 
My body heats up as his breath blows past my ear.  The sensation sends a shiver through my body and heat straight to my core.  He holds me so close that I can feel how much he wants me as it presses into my backside.
“When are you going to quit playing hard to get?  You know we will be hot together.  You know you want what only I can give you.”  He begins to sway back and forth with the music.
I want what he is offering me so much.  I want to let go and ride the roller coaster that is Taron.  I know there will be ups and downs.  I just don’t know if I can hang on until the end and exit the ride safely.  I don’t know if he will break my heart.
Usually I don’t let myself get attached to a guy.  We have fun and then say our goodbyes.  Taron managed to work his way into my life in a way that we are so beyond a simple affair without strings.  I just don’t know if he is capable of what I want.
I want him.  All of him.  To myself.  No sharing.

“I don’t want to share,” I say through the lump in my throat.
“I don’t have any intentions of sharing you.”  He flips me around to face him.  He guides my arms over his shoulders and slowly drags his hands back down my arms, down my sides, and then around my waist.  He flattens both of his hands out on my butt cheeks and presses me further into him.  We continue to sway with the music.
I look into his eyes.  I can see desire.  I can see the same heat that I feel.  I decide to give in.  I pull him down to meet my lips.  He doesn’t waste any time joining my tongue.  I know he is a great kisser.  We have already established the hot chemistry between us once before.  He continues to press himself into me and the pressure makes me crave more of him.
“Spend the night with me.”  He is begging me through the tone of his voice.
I bow my head in thought and he kisses my forehead.  He uses his large hands to guide my head back up to look at him.  He closes his eyes as he nears me and begins to softly kiss my lips.  This gentle side of him is my undoing.
“My place isn’t as crowded.  I’m pretty sure you won’t want your brothers to hear what I have planned for you.”  I nibble on his bottom lip as I pull away from his lips.
“Fuuuuccckk Me.”  He has a huge smile on his face.

“I have to sing a few songs and then you are mine.”  He holds me tight until the rest of the band has taken the stage.  When Talon and Luke start to play, he finally releases me.  “Don’t go anywhere.  I want to watch you while I am on stage.”
I stay exactly where he leaves me.  I enjoy the songs so much more this time.  It seems like he is singing them directly to me.  His eyes are intense and he never really looks anywhere but at me.  The crowd is still going wild trying to get his attention.  Panties and bras are thrown up at him, but he never averts his attention away from me. 
I feel someone up against my back and I turn to see who is standing this close to me.  It’s Dylan.  His job relocated him a couple of months back.  We went out a couple of times, but we weren’t exclusive.
“Hey Dylan.”  I smile at him and place my hand on his arm stepping sideways just a little to give myself some room.
“Ivy.  How is my girl?”  The way he just said my girl irritates me.  He grips my arm very tightly and I yank it from his grip.  What the hell is his problem?  
“I am not anyone’s girl.” 
Aiden is next to me in a matter of seconds.  Aiden and I have been friends since we met.  In the beginning he wanted to be more than friends.  I think he finally realized that my feelings for Taron are much deeper than I let on and he backed off.  He started dating another girl, but we still talk daily.  We sometimes meet for dinner or drinks when he has time.  He is pure country.  He is pure country cowboy with a perfect gentleman demeanor. 
“Get your hands off of Ivy.”  Aiden is in Dylan’s face the instant he can be.
“You got a problem, cowboy?”  Dylan pushes Aiden back.
“Lay a hand on a girl and you are the one with a big problem.  It will be the last time you use your hands.”  Aiden is dead serious with his threat.  “Let’s take this outside.”  The cowboys surround Dylan.
Taron busts through the crowd that has surrounded us.  He slams into Dylan’s chest with the rage of a fighter.  His force slams Dylan to the ground.  Taron has his arm pressing into Dylan’s throat causing him to gasp for air.
“You touch her again, motherfucker, and I will personally make sure that you never live to see tomorrow.”  It takes four guys to pull Taron off of Dylan.  The cowboys escort Dylan out of the bar and Taron is outraged. 
“What the fuck!”  He begins to yell in anger. 
“Chill out brother.”  Talon attempts to calm his twin down. 
“What did he say to you?  Why is he grabbing you like that?  Why is cowboy saving the fucking day?”  He is full of questions that I don’t know the answer to.  
“He just grabbed my arm tightly and asked how his girl was doing.  I told him that I am not anyone’s girl and then Aiden was there.  Calm down, please.”  I’m starting to feel the stress of him being this angry.  My childhood was spent with different men beating on my mother every day.  They used to talk to her and look at her like he is talking to me right now.  I don’t think he would ever hit me, but his rage is causing old memories to surface that I am not ready to deal with right now.
“Aiden saves the motherfucking day.  Doesn’t he?”  He is angry with me.  Why is he so pissed at me?
“Aiden is just a friend.  What is your problem?”  I grab him by the collar of his t-shirt and pull his face to mine.  “Jealous much?” 
“No one should be touching you like that.”
“I agree and it has been handled.  Please don’t ruin tonight for us.”  I beg him as I hold him an inch from my face trying to get him to focus on me.  He finally calms down just as Smitty shows up to see what is going on.  I’m thankful that Smitty loves these guys.  I’m positive that all of our asses would have been tossed if they weren’t the band that fills this bar every time they schedule.        
“I’m done tonight.  The show is over.”  Taron begins to yell at everyone that is surrounding us.  The DJ starts to play some music and the crowd finally moves away. 
“I’m ready to break out of here.”  He looks frustrated as he looks at me over his shoulder.  He has a hold of my hand and our arms are extended between us since I haven’t moved.  I see Eaven looking at us with a smile on her face. 
I decide to walk in her direction and Taron follows staying attached to my hand.  “We’re going to head out.”  She knows what we’re leaving to do.  She knows me better than I know myself sometimes.  She leans over to hug me and manages to whisper in my ear so that Taron can’t hear. 
“Be careful my friend.”  Then she leans into a hug with him.  She whispers something in his ear that I can’t hear.


“Hurt her, and I will kill you.”  Eaven’s threat is heard loud and clear.  I have witnessed the bond that these two share, and I know they will always protect each other.  My future sister-in-law is a feisty survivor and I don’t plan to cross her.  She has proven that she will fight for those she loves.

It takes entirely too long to exit the club.  People are everywhere and every time I turn around some girl from one of my past hookups is lingering in my view waiting for the opportunity to ‘meet’ up with me.  I know Ivy can sense what these girls are after because she gets defensive before we get out the door.
“Jealous much?”  I decide the best way to approach this is to be playful and throw her words right back at her. 
“Um…. No.  Like I have always said, if you want ‘cock rot’ feel free to play the field, just don’t expect me to hang around.”  She is extremely sassy with that fucking mouth of hers.  It is what I love and hate so much about her equally.  She is a breath of fresh air compared to all of the groupies that I am flooded with constantly. 
I have been holding out for Ivy since we started spending so much time together after Eaven’s accident.  “There’s no ‘cock rot’ here.  My dick may fall off from lack of use lately, but I know that I’m clean.  I always wrap it and I get tested regularly.” 
I have to protect myself from the lot lizards of the concert scene.  They will agree with everything I say or want to do.  It’s like they are spineless females that expect me to give them a great fuck and then they know the drill.  They head out.  I may hit four girls in the same night if I start at the club. 
I haven’t had any interest in any of them lately.  Been there, fucked that. 
There is a sexy brunette that has had all of my attention.  I love a challenge.  She acts like she isn’t interested in me, but I know that if she has a taste, she will love it.  I can’t wait to see if that sassy mouth is just as feisty in the bedroom.  If it is, I may not be able to stand it.
