Of all the books in the Big & Beautiful series, this was the most challenging. I knew Lexi and Mike were lovers before the book started, but that was all I knew. Even though it comes as book three in the series, it was the last one I wrote because I couldn’t figure out the story.
But, once I did, the book poured out of me. I loved Shapely & Stunning! It might be my favorite book that I’ve ever written.
In one week you can read Shapely & Stunning, but right now you can preorder it, and get a little preview of Lexi and Mike. I think you’ll like them.
Excerpt from Shapely & Stunning
Mike and I stood there staring at each other until the rumble of Luke’s truck faded in the distance. We were alone.
“What are you doing here?” I asked the same time Mike said, “What the fuck were you doing with him?”
I sighed heavily. “You don’t get to ask me that Mike. We’re over.”
“The fuck we are, Lexi. Dammit, I told you I wasn’t letting you go that easily.”
“You didn’t look like you were fighting when Yvonne was sitting on your lap the other day,” I spat, knowing as soon as the words were out that I sounded like a jealous ex.
Mike ground his jaw some more. I started to worry he was going to actually crack a tooth. “She fell on me. She’s trying to get me into bed. I told her I wasn’t interested.”
“Well, why would you do that?” I asked innocently. “You’re an attractive single guy. You should go for it with-“
Mike’s lips came down on mine so fast I didn’t know what happened. I hadn’t even realized he was close enough to kiss me until his lips were touching mine. Without warning my lips parted and my tongue darted out to find its friends. Mike’s mouth opened and his tongue brushed mine, sending bolts of lightning through my body. I clutched at him as he backed me up into the nearest car. I didn’t know whose it was and frankly I didn’t care. My neighbor’s car was about to get my ass prints on the hood if I really had a say in the matter.
“Inside, now,” Mike growled at me, nipping my lip and thrusting his hips against mine.
“Inside the apartment or inside me?” I asked, the sexual fog making my brain fuzzy.
“Both, Lexi. Now.”
