excerpt

Prologue

Sebastian

The doorbell rang and the noise resounded through the whole house, I cringed knowing that soon I’d have to be polite and presentable to my parents’ friends. I knew they had a little kid, a girl with a weird sounding name. I just hope she didn’t cry and whine as much as my friend’s little brothers and sisters do.

“Sebastian, can you come down now? Our guests have arrived.” Mom called out and I groaned.

Throwing down the controller of my video game, I trudged down the steps venting my anger with every movement.

“Here he is, Sebastian my boy.” Dad said, his arm outstretched pulling me into a hug. “Sebastian, these are our dearest friends, Cecile and Ezra Billings and their daughter Emmeline.”

“Hello, nice to meet you.”

“Oh Sebastian, you’ve grown up so much since we saw you last, I believe you were our Linnie’s age.” Mrs. Billings commented and I smiled.

“Linnie, darling, this is Sebastian. Can you say hi to Sebastian?”

A little tiny head poked from behind Mr. Billings, a big mess of brown curls came flopping out. Her face lit up as she saw me, as if I was something she’d never seen before. Her eyes were big and the weirdest color I’d ever seen, purple I think. When she stepped around to stand in front of me, I looked down at this little person while she just stared at me.

“Hi Assin.” She said with a wave, causing my parents and hers to laugh.

“Sebastian.” I said. “My name is Sebastian.”

“Assin.” She exclaimed before throwing her arms up in the air and hugging my legs.

“Aww, she likes you Sebastian.” My mother whispered to me before placing a kiss on my cheek.

“Well, I don’t like her.” I mumbled low and under my breath so no one could hear me.

Ashlee Taylor has always loved to read. She was practically born with a book in hand. She even wrote short stories and vignettes for fun at age eleven.

As she grew up reading was put to the side but the book Fifty Shades of Grey brought back the love of the written word. Swallowing every book she could get her hands on while befriending authors. Eventually becoming a beta reader and helping authors work out critical scenes and plot progressions.

Through this process, Ashlee decided to write the stories in her head.

FALLING FOR THE PLAYER by Jessica Lee Release Tour & Rafflecopter giveaway 1/16/17

 

Falling For the Player
by Jessica Lee
Genre: New Adult – M/M Romance
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Release Date: January 16, 2017

 

 

Bad boy and former NFL running back Patrick Guinness is tired of meaningless sex. Ever since his scorching hot one-night stand three years ago, no one has interested him. So when Max Segreti wanders into his mechanic shop—and his life again—Patrick can’t stop thinking about the totally-out-of-his-league law student and the possibility of getting him out of his system once and for all…

Max Segreti has spent his entire life doing what his father wants. But when he runs into the hotter-than-hell player he’s never been able to forget, he’s not thinking about studying for the bar. A distraction is the last thing he needs, but after an encounter leaves him wanting more, Max embraces the chaos that Patrick brings…even as he knows it can’t last. They’re too different to ever have a future together.

 

 

Jumping up, Patrick yanked his soaked shirt over his head.
Damn, that shit is hot!
“Oh, fuck!” Max grabbed the wet shirt and tried to soak up the remaining coffee dripping off Patrick’s skin. “God, this is my fault. I should have been more careful.” Then Max jerked his own T-shirt off and blotted Patrick’s chest with it, his expression twisted with concern. “Are you okay?”
He was fine. Not that Max would stand still and listen long enough to find out. Fuck, the guy was too adorable. Patrick was lucky the coffee had been Max’s heavily creamed version and so not hot enough to do any damage.
Patrick braced his hands on the other guy’s shoulders, trying to hold him in place, but it wasn’t working. “Max,” he called out to him.
“Do we need to get you to the ER?”
“I’m fine.”
“Shit, Patrick, I—”
Seizing one of Max’s wrists, Patrick hauled him against his chest, bringing a halt to whatever else he’d been about to say. Max looked up, his eyes wide, stunned.
“I’m okay,” Patrick whispered. He couldn’t stop drinking in the other man’s features. Strands of Max’s dark hair had fallen forward onto his forehead. The guy had the most expressive dark blue eyes, with small flecks of amber around the pupil he hadn’t noticed until now. Patrick followed the bridge of the man’s perfectly straight nose lower to where it ended above the carved V of his mouth. Outside of his looks, Max was everything Patrick never went for, smart and obviously rich, judging by the expensive car and his big-ass condo. Back home, the only way he and Max’s type would have mixed would have been when he worked on their cars. Funny how his popularity as a football star placed him, for once, on the other side of the tracks. Someone who would soon be rolling in the big bucks. The pink tip of Max’s tongue appeared, momentarily short-circuiting Patrick’s train of thought as Max licked his full lower lip.
Fuck.
Patrick wasn’t sure who moved first, but the next thing he knew, he had his fist clenched in Max’s short, thick hair and his lips sealed against Max’s. A hard shudder of pleasure raced over him, and Patrick’s cock bucked against the confines of his zipper. Max groaned, his mouth roaming every inch of Patrick’s mouth, as if he couldn’t get enough. But Patrick matched his every move, unsure who needed the contact, the pleasure, more.
