sample sunday: attractions & distractions : freshman year

Here is an excerpt from my very first book (*cheers*), Attractions and Distractions: Freshman Year. Now available on Amazon!
“You know, you’re kinda witty.”“I’ve heard.”“It’s sexy as hell.” I tensed all over, but especially in my upper thighs. Something about the way he expressed his attraction, his interest…in me…I couldn’t handle it. Maybe it was the age difference; he made me wanna grow up and be on that level.“Are we done here?” I had to diffuse the situation fast. But the second it seemed like I was taking control, he made sure I wasn’t. He came back to what I considered my side of the desk, invading the little bit of breathing room I had.“Do you wanna be?” He bit his bottom lip slowly, looking directly in my eyes. I clenched tighter.

“Yes.” It came out as more of a breath than anything. Surely not confident enough for him to stop his pursuit of me.

“I don’t believe you Alexis. I need you to do better than that.” And then he got closer; close enough to speak directly into my ear. I couldn’t inhale anything but his natural, manly, fiercely intoxicating scent. “Do you really wanna be done here? Or is there..more…we have to talk about?” My chest heaved up and down as I tried to clear my head enough to come up with the right answer.

An answer…that’s what I was working on right?

“I…I think we’re done here.” He repelled. And I was thankful to be able to breath again.

Alexis + men = disaster.  At least, that’s how it’s always been. Still, she’s easily tempted by her new surroundings at the University of California to put a foot forward into the dating pool; just not her best one. Relationships and situation-ships quickly become a balancing act as she tries to survive her freshman year.

Jaden is something like an “it guy”, but not by choice. He would much rather live a quiet, normal life exactly opposite of the one the media portrays. So when he meets Alexis by chance, he instantly falls for her beauty, charm, and… normalcy. But he learns very quickly that dealing with her is anything but normal.

Tyree isn’t a man of many words; he prefers action. When, sweet, sexy, naive Alexis Martin becomes a resident in his dorm, he can’t help trying his hand at getting with her, even if she is a freshman.

Attractions and Distractions will take you on a bumpy ride through the struggles and triumphs of finding love on the college scene.
