I’m not your boyfriend. I’m not the guy next door. I don’t even play nice.

My hands twisting in your hair, my whispered demand in your ear—I’m the fantasy you’ll wish you never had.

When I’m through with you, every inch of your body will know where I’ve been. You won’t crave more, you’ll beg for it. Because I’m not just the cocky smile with military hardened muscles you paid five grand for—I’m the experience you’ll never forget.

One night with me and you’ll know exactly why women pay me to be rough.

His crude, dirty words, his huge muscular arms, the dark, brooding intent in his eyes—he made every nerve in my body ache for him. But he was right. He wasn’t anything like his friend Alex Vega. Not even close. His hair was lighter, his muscles were harder and everything about Jared Brandt was sinister, including the barely contained civility in his amber-brown eyes.

He moved like a caged animal just waiting to be released. I should’ve run, not walked back to my car, but the second he’d touched me, I didn’t have the good sense to even breathe.

“You coming?”

His voice was both sandpaper and liquid seduction. It melted my resolve as every hard edge of it spread across my skin like summer heat in the Everglades. I grasped for something to say that wouldn’t give away my shameless thoughts, but I’d already shimmied on him like a bitch in heat.

I wasn’t losing the battle to walk away from him, I’d already lost.

Itching to straighten my dress but refusing to do it in front of him, I belatedly noticed we were in the underground parking of his expensive condo building. “I’m parked at street level.”

“I’m driving.” His dress shirt stretching across his massive biceps, his trousers straining against his muscled thighs, he strode toward a sports car.

I practically shivered at the command in his voice, but it was the raw power in his muscles that had me sinking in my own pool of depravity. I didn’t date or flirt or go on Tinder. I didn’t even search match sites late at night with the lights off. I worked and pretended to be happy, until I made a huge mistake with a certain quarterback. Then thinking I could reset the balance in my life, I’d hired a male escort who promised nothing except no strings attached. I knew life wasn’t perfect, but strings proved to be a painful lesson my daddy never preached to me about. So here I was, standing in a parking garage in my butter yellow sundress that said I was still a good girl on the outside.

Except the angry man with the tousled hair and face of a Greek god who opened the passenger door of a brand-new sports car told a whole other story.

I know the game. I know the angle. I know how to make you beg.

My hands on your body, my mouth hovering over yours—I’ll tell you everything you want to hear. Ten inches of real estate never felt so good.

But don’t take my word for it. My client list is long and my motto is short—one single thrust and you’re mine. I’m not good at what I do, I’m fantastic. But satisfaction doesn’t come cheap. So open your wallet and prepare to forget your name. I’m about to ruin you for any other man.

One single thrust and you’re mine.

About Sybil Bartel

I grew up in Northern California with my head in a book and my feet in the sand. I dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew me into the world of storytelling. I love the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes me swoon.

I now live in Southern Florida and while I don’t get to read as much as I like, I still bury my toes in the sand. If I’m not writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in my backyard, you can find me spending time with my handsomely tattooed husband, my brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you probably really want to know about me.

I grew up a faculty brat. I can swear like a sailor. I love men in uniform. I hate being told what to do. I can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks me out. My favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—I can’t decide. I have a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on me for driving directions, ever. And I have a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell my husband.
