Hard core fucking.

It’s not what I really want, but it’s all he has to offer. He’s filled with turmoil and heartache and regrets, but for two hours every Wednesday all he feels is me. How much I desire him, how desperate he makes me, how much I’d like things to be different between us. Real.

He used to be my best friend back before he got married. And now? Now, he’s a young widower. It’d be wrong on so many levels to expect something more from him. So I give him what he needs. Dark delicious fucking. But I know I can’t keep this up. I’ve already given him my body, my soul. I want him to have my heart. It might drive him away forever, but that’s a risk I’m forced to take.

Wednesday is an angsty romp told from dual points of view. If you’re in the mood for something quick and dirty, you’ve found it. Proceed at your own risk.

Okay, this one is short and HOT! A little too short for my taste, but Wednesday is definitely the perfect smutty read if you’re in need of a quickie. This is actually the first book I’ve read by Kendall Ryan, but now I know why everyone thinks she writes some steamy reads. She gets seriously down and dirty in Chloe and Shaw’s novella! I liked it, but I would’ve preferred something longer and more fleshed out.

He was my drug. Bold. Intoxicating. Addictive.

Wednesday is a friends-to-lovers romance between Shaw, a grieving widow, and Chloe, who’s had a crush on Shaw for as long as she’s known him. After the death of Shaw’s wife, Chloe lets Shaw fall into his grief and use her – for sex. Every Wednesday, he goes over to her house a rough, raw, long ride. It’s wrong, taboo… but why does it feel so right between them?

My drug of choice was my best friend, naked and writhing beneath me. Did that make me a monster? Maybe.

Soooo basically, this was smutty novella to the max. The chemistry is hot and there’s plenty of dirty talk, but I did find myself frustrated with Chloe and Shaw – Chloe for being too passive with Shaw, Shaw for using Chloe and not really SEEING her until the last moment – but their romance wraps up pretty sweetly and cheesily. I still enjoyed this read – it’s fun, quick, and did I mention, HOT? If you’re a fan of short, dirty reads, this one’s definitely for you. 😉

Special Announcement from Kendall Ryan

My upcoming book has been tentatively titled The Dominant, and I’ve begun to question if that’s the right title. The Dominant reads hard core BDSM read? This book is totally not. In fact, the characters have taken a different turn and it has more angst and feels, along with the sexy. There are *very* light BDSM elements. A few toys, and lots of sexy.

At its core, it’s a forbidden love story about a man who fell for his best friend’s little sister years ago, and now she’s back in town, coming off a bad breakup looking for a little fun and a lot of rebound sex. He’s had to lock-down his heart, but agrees to help her – on his terms!

With this I have decided it needed a new title to fully describe the book at its best. Releasing on July 14 is SINFULLY MINE.

Sinfully Mine by Kendall Ryan
Series: Lessons with the Dom #2 (full reading order below)
Publication Date: July 14th 2015
Add to Goodreads

She was forbidden.

I didn’t care.

As my best friend’s little sister, Macey Hale was off-limits. Tempting as sin, and forbidden as fuck. I wish I could say that stopped me. I wish I could tell you I’d behaved like a gentleman.

I didn’t.

When she waltzes back into my life with that same spark I fell for, looking every bit the beautiful woman I knew she’d grow into, I have to force myself to remember I’m different from the man she once knew. I’m colder. Harder. And for good reason.

With my heart on lockdown, and my hands aching to touch her, I set out to prove that I can keep myself in check this time.

No strings. No attachments.

And definitely no falling for her again.

This is book two in the Lessons with the Dom series, following The Gentleman Mentor. Both are complete standalone novels featuring sexy Dominant men you’re sure to fall in love with. Enjoy!

Now here’s a small excerpt from Sinfully Mine! ❤

excerpt button

Up until this moment, sex been a meaningless physical act meant to quiet the need raging inside me, nothing more than joyless weekend hookups with girls whose names I wouldn’t recall in the morning. But Macey wasn’t just the girl I’d grown to love, she was also my best friend’s little sister and a virgin—a combination that was completely off-limits.

Now here’s an excerpt from Reckless Love! ❤

excerpt

“So, it’s true then?”

My breathing stopped. “What’s true?” I asked cautiously.

“That you don’t have sex before a big fight.” Her look was so innocent and hopeful, yet it still took me a second to figure out why she was asking this.

“Yes,” I finally answered. Her cute little frame seemed to relax a little, making me feel—once again—like a total dick. She didn’t know I paid Sara; she was talking about something completely different, about the night we almost hooked up. The night I told her I couldn’t because I had a fight the next day.

She chewed at the inside of her cheek a moment, maybe considering what I’d just said. Shit, that meant she thought I’d just made that up to get rid of her. Not fucking likely. Putting the brakes on that night had been the hardest thing I’d ever done.

“So,” she said as she looked up at me innocently through her eyelashes. “What does that do? For a fighter, I mean.”

I chuckled. “You mean besides frustrate the hell out of us?”

She smiled—thank fucking goodness—then nodded for me to continue.

“You know that stereotype that most guys are boneheaded cave dwellers driven by instinct?”

“Is it considered a stereotype if it’s true?” she said, then giggled.

God, she had a great laugh.

I nodded. “That’s what I was getting at. On some very basic level, we fight in order to survive and procreate.”

She scrunched up her nose, making her look super cute. “But wouldn’t you fight better then? If you have sex, then you have someone to fight for, right?”

Her hand went up to mine, which was still resting on her shoulder. She absentmindedly played with my fingers until she noticed I was watching her, and realized what she’d been doing. She let her hand drop.

I shook my head. “We fight to procreate. Once we’ve had sex, we’ve done the job and have no reason to fight.”

“Hmm.” She nodded. “So I guess now that you aren’t fighting for a while, you’re free to take care of business.” Her gaze drifted down my body.

excerpt

“You agreed to give me six months,” he reminds me.

“I also agreed to give you my virginity,” I add.

“But I didn’t take that.”

“No, you didn’t,” I agree. A fact that I’m painfully aware of.

“Are you still intact?” he asks, his tone raspy and deep.

A warm current zips through me, flushing my cheeks and soaking my panties. “Of c-course.” My voice is hoarse and Colton’s dark eyes roaming on mine make it impossible to speak clearly.

I see the vein throb at the base of his throat. “Good girl,” he admonishes.

You’ve met Ben Shaw. Now meet Braydon Kincaid, the devil-may-care male model who nearly stole the show in Working It by New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan.

As one of the world’s most sought-after male models, Braydon is no stranger to the finer pleasures in life. The last thing he wants to do is limit himself, especially when it comes to women. His best friend, Ben, might’ve settled down, but Braydon doesn’t want to waste his youth on the messy complications of commitment. He wants fun. He wants easy.

Ellie isn’t looking for a casual relationship, but her tough and sassy personality instantly attracts Braydon, who proposes a “friends with benefits” arrangement. Unable to resist the powerful pull of the charming bad boy, Ellie eventually relents, though she longs for all-consuming love.

As the two spend more time together, Ellie soon realizes that Braydon’s posing skills extend off the runway. His carefully crafted façade masks a secret hurt that he’s reluctant to share with Ellie, even as they embark on a passionate affair that sends them hurtling toward a fate neither expected. Can Ellie risk her heart while she waits for Braydon to let her in, or will she be forced to demand all or nothing?
