[Series Review] The Holly Wood Files by Emma Hart


Series Review
I love this series, lets start off with that. When Tanya introduced me to Emma, I was hooked with the Burke brothers, then she told me I needed to read these. I LOVE Drake and Noelle. They have to be one of my favorite couples ever.  I loved being able to see the progression of their relationship throughout the series and I loved how it ended.

Twisted Bond
Book 1

**4.5 Stars**
Oh man, this book sucked me in from page 1! Romance is my usual to go to, but I don’t usually read suspense. This book did not disappoint! Emma has a gift and she delivered with this one.

Former cop turned private PI Noelle Bond is probably my new favorite Emma character to date. This hot-blooded Italian is not a force many want to go against. In the small town of Holly Woods, Texas there usually isn’t a lot of crime, until now.  After the surprise of a dead body found in the dumpster outside her place of work, a murder is needing to be solved and Noelle can’t wait to get her hands on it. There is only one problem, the head detective; Detective Drake Nash is a torn in her side. The problem with this is Noelle also finds Drake to be sexy and is crazy attracted to him. But, is this a problem or not?

Detective Drake Nash is on hot detective and the lead detective for HWPD. He knows his stuff and even with the thorn in his side Noelle Bond, he is will solve the murder of person found in Bond PI’s dumpster.  The only problem is, Noelle keeps getting information from her brothers, who are also detectives with the HWPD. Does Drake finally give in and admit he has feelings for her or does he work with her to get the case solved?  Noelle drives him crazy. She is a royal pain, yet he can’t get over the attraction for her.

Man, I loved this story. The chemistry between Noelle and Drake is there, it’s hot and it’s crazy. They butt heads like no others and yet they work together in a way no one thought was possible. The secondary characters in this story are amazing. Nonna has you laughing and feeling the pain of a nosy grandmother and her brothers keep you laughing because they are all on the HWPD.

Tangled Bond
Book 2

**4.5 Stars**
Tangled Bond is book 2 in the Holly Woods Files series and just as good as the first.  Noelle and Drake are back and hotter than ever. After promising Drake a date, Noelle finally lets him cash him, the problem is there is yet another murder in Holly Woods.

Noelle is still as amazing as she was in book 1. You see more of her humor, her wit and her Tiffany blue glock (much to Drake and her family’s displeasure).  She shows no fear except when it comes to Drake and her feelings for him. Drake adds a nice complex to her personality, because even if they fight they still have this amazing chemistry between them that you want to keep reading about

Drake is a man who deserves an award for having the most patience out of anyone.  With another murder in the town and his attraction for Noelle he wants to keep her safe, even if it means multiple threats from Noelle at shooting him. He is determined to make her his and he won’t stop trying until it happens.  Being forced to work together with Noelle on another murder isn’t exactly how he planned on doing it, but things aren’t always in your control in Holly Woods.

The secondary characters are just as amazing in this book as they are in book 1. You learn more about Trent, Dev and Brody and their relationship with Noelle. You see more of Nonna and her crazy side along with how passionate she is about her family.

I can’t wait for book 3!

Tethered Bond
Book 3 

**4.5 Stars**
Emma nailed it again! Book 3 brings Noelle and Drake along with the rest of Holly Woods back and they keep getting hotter! With the summer festival coming up the town of Holly Woods can finally be in peace and take a break from murders or can they? After another murder is victim is found and the town is thrown off balance.  

Noelle has finally come to realize that she wants Drake and he is hers. She has claimed him even though he still drives her mad. Noelle is asked to help solve yet another murder case much to Drake’s displeasure. This time it’s keeping herself save and being with Drake fully.
Drake is seriously going to go gray being with Noelle. Even if she drives him mad the desire to protect her is still there. Drake is overly protective and definitely shows Noelle how much he cares about her in this book.

I love how Emma brings back all of our favorite characters and that we keep learning more and more about the Bond family.  Nonna is still hilarious as ever and her new pet parrot adds even more of a flair to the drama that ensues at the Friday night family dinners.

Bring on book 4!

Tied Bond
Book 4

**4.5 Stars**
The Holly Woods Files group is back! This series seriously keeps getting hotter. The suspense keeps getting better and the chemistry between Noelle and Drake keeps on growing stronger.

Life isn’t all cupcakes and rainbows for Noelle, being a private PI and being in a relationship with the lead detective of HWPD has brought on new things Noelle wasn’t ever prepared for. The town of Holly Woods used to be so quiet, but it’s a good thing they have Drake and Noelle to help them solve the murder cases that keep turning up. With Halloween just around the corner, they were hoping for a nice quiet holiday, if you can call Nonna’s vocal hatred for the holiday quiet, until another murder victim is found and Drake’s mom is the prime suspect.

This is probably one of my favorite books within this series. It tests Noelle and Drake’s ability to be together with a crisis hits a family member. But they persevere and come out stronger than ever. A huge development for their relationship hits and it couldn’t have made it better.

Twirled Bond
Book 5
**4.5 Stars**
They’re back!  This book takes place six months after Tied Bond and Emma nailed it again!  The story starts after Devin and Amelia got married and now Cupid Nonna is on the crazy train and dropping hints to Noelle and Drake! I couldn’t stop laughing at her craziness and the comments that would come flying out of Noelle’s mouth.

This one was slightly different from the others; different being the dead body is from a cold case over 10-15 years old. Noelle is hired to help solve this case yet again, even if Drake doesn’t want her to. But does the man really have a say in it when he moved in over six months ago and her shoe shelf still isn’t done?

I loved reading this story because it showed the growth in Noelle and Drake’s relationship.  You see how they handle cohabiting together and you get to watch them squirm with Nonna suggests marriage. The ending to this book was purely perfect. I think my favorite part of this story was the ever-developing love triangle Bek has herself in with Jason and Brody! I can’t wait for book 6 and Bek’s story. I know whom I’m rooting for!

Amazon US | Amazon UK | iBooks | B&N

Burning Bond
Book 6
**4.5 Stars**
When I read the blurb for this one I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! Bek has always intrigued me, her having a love triangle? Now that intrigues me even more! I wasn’t sure where her story was going to go, I knew where I wanted it to go and I was hoping Emma wouldn’t kill me in the process of getting there! Like all of the other stories there is a murder and a relationship with the HWPD, but I wasn’t prepared for how amazing Bek’s story was going to be! It’s hard to do this review without spoilers, so I’ll just tell you how I feel about Bek and the story overall as a whole.

Bek deserves an award for having to deal with the current pissing match between Jason and Brody. I wouldn’t want to pick either one of them because of this, but in the end I know she picked the perfect person for her. No one will ever be as crazy as Noelle, but Bek has her own special kind of crazy. She has to, to be BFF with Noelle. Bek’s crazy comes out in full force in Burning Bond and I loved it.  Bek is strong, sarcastic and has two amazing men fighting for her, but there is definite stronger chemistry between Bek and a certain someone.

Brody and Jason are both two amazing characters and I would have been happy for Bek to end up with both, but they are both amazing in their own way. Brody is a Bond for sure; he is cocky, handsome and doesn’t stop without a fight. Jason is the outsider; he’s handsome and has a desire to protect Bek. I know I wouldn’t know whom to pick if I was in Bek’s position.

This book was full of angst, passion, sarcasm, wit and humor. Emma definitely delivered with this book and Bek’s story. It had me wanting to punch Bek, Brody, and Jason all at the same time. I wanted to smack Brody and love him all at once. I wanted to reason with Jason to figure out what he was doing and I wanted to wrap my arms around Bek to let her know it’d be okay.  This story was amazing and added to the series in the perfect way. I can’t wait to see what happens in Holly Woods, Texas in book 7, but I know I also don’t want it to end.

Twined Bond
Book 7

**4.5 stars**
I'm just going to start out with that the preface doesn't lie and tissues will be needed. I'm fairly sure Emma ripped my heart out with this one from page one, but in a good way of course. I’m sad to see this series end, but I loved how it ended.

Out of all the books, this is one is my favorite. I loved getting to see the growth of Drake and Noelle. Noelle had a moment in the book that made me love her even more than I already did. It was like she had this realization that it’s not just her anymore, she has Drake and without him, life wouldn’t be the same. Watching this was amazing and it showed how much she has grown since the series’ first started and their relationship began.

Drake is still the most patient man I’ve ever met and he shows just how patience he is with Noelle in this book. I think that’s why I love him even more. He truly loves Noelle fiercely and I think Emma did an amazing job at portraying just how much he does love her in this book. You were able to see an emotional side of Drake and it pulled at your heart. You felt for Drake and all the emotions he was feeling. I think this was when I pulled the second box of tissues.

The secondary characters in this book are just as amazing as they were in the others. I love Nonna, hands down I wish she was my Nonna, except she can leave Gio home.  I love the Bond family and I'm so glad we were able to learn and love with them throughout the series.

This book seriously pulled at my heart strings and I couldn’t have asked for a better series end. I love the bond they have; their connection is something fierce and brings so much happiness to them both, which makes it even sweeter. I’m sad to see this series end, but I can’t wait to see what else Emma comes up with.

Young passionate couple making love in bed

If the best man and maid of honor are both single, it’s practically an unwritten rule that they should pork.

…so begins a rocky acquaintance between Jean-Christian “J.C.” Rousseau and Libitz Feingold at the wedding of J.C.’s brother and Lib’s best friend. While manslut best man J.C. is surprised when maid of honor Libitz soundly spurns his advances, his curiosity is piqued. The girl he couldn’t have becomes the only one he wants. 

 So, when he finds a seventy-year-old portrait in the attic of his sister’s mansion that bears an uncanny resemblance to the prickly gallery owner, he enlists her help in solving a mystery seven decades in the making. Traveling from Philadelphia to New York to Marseille, a couple who started off as enemies will discover that even cynics can find true love…and mortal man is no match for destiny. 

Get to know the families of Blueberry Lane! 

 *All books in The Blueberry Lane Series can be enjoyed as standalone novels.*

  Young passionate couple making love in bed
“You must be the famous Libitz,” he’d opened, taking his assigned seat beside her, and flashing his sexiest grin.
After all, if she was his chosen conquest for the weekend, there was no time like the present to work his wiles. Wearing a simple black sheath dress with aqua circles, 70s-style mod make-up and oversized silver and crystal chandelier earrings that almost brushed her thin shoulders, she’d turned to him and blinked those wide, all-seeing eyes.
“And you…must be kidding.”
Taken aback, he’d stared at her for a second before chuckling. “Wha—I mean, how’s that?”
“Let’s start over,” she said, cocking her head to the side. “Here’s your line, Romeo: “Hi, I’m Étienne’s brother, Jean-Christian. It’s nice to meet you.” Want to give it a try?”
He cleared his throat, his smile fading. “Hi, I’m Étienne’s brother, Jean-Christian. It’s nice to meet you.”
She locked eyes with his, her lips neutral, neither tilted up nor down. “Hi. I’m Libitz Feingold, Kate’s best friend…and it’s not cold enough.”
“What?” asked J.C., feeling completely turned around.
"It’s not cold enough in hell for me to fall for someone like you,” she said, then shifted back around to talk to the person on her other side.
Well, fuck me, thought J.C., taking another gulp of beer as he tried to figure out if he was insulted or impressed. After a moment, he nudged her in the side with his elbow and she looked at him over her shoulder, her expression annoyed.
“I hear the temperature’s dropping there,” he said casually, then added, “because they’re expecting a visit from you.”
"Ha!” she chortled, a genuine grin brightening her eyes for a moment before she quickly reigned it back in to practiced ennui. “Is that right?”
He shrugged, tipping his bottle of beer back as he held her eyes, challenging her to come back at him with something clever. “So I heard.”
“From all the friends you’ve got there?”
He almost spit his beer out. Damn, but she was quick.
"Truce?’ he asked, placing his beer on the table and holding out his hand.
She stared at his hand for a moment, then looked away, leaning forward to pick up her champagne glass and bringing it slowly to her lips. “No, thanks. Mama didn’t raise no fool.”
“You’re unreal.” She shook her head, that bored look still in place.
"Nope. I’m real. I’m just not a good target for charming scamps looking for trouble.”
"A target? Shit. Who got to you?” he asked, feeling a little abused by her insta-judgement of him without actually getting a chance to know him in person. Not that she was wrong exactly. But getting into trouble with the right person could be a hell of a lot of fun.
“The list is long and distinguished,” she shot back.
His eyes widened and his lips wobbled.
“Oh, God,” she said, shaking her head as her cheeks bloomed an appealing pink under her make-up. “I walked right into that one didn’t I?”
“Yes, you did,” said J.C. with what he hoped was a disarming grin. “All together, now…”
“So’s my Johnson,” they said at the same time, quoting the rebuttal line from Top Gun.
“Hey, look at that,” he said, still smiling at her. “You do know how to have fun. I was beginning to worry.”
Her smile instantly faded. “You’re not as cute as you think you are.”
"Yeah,” he said, nodding as he finished the last of his beer. “I am.”


**4 stars**

I loved JC's story. His story can be read as a standalone outside of the series.
Where do I start with JC? He's the best man at his brother's wedding and of course he is hoping to hook up with someone, because what playboy doesn't do that? What makes it even more of an exciting challenge is Libitz, the maid of honor, his is new sister in law's BFF. I think that made it one of my favorites out of the siblings. JC has always had this mysterious side of him in the other two books for this family and his story didn't disappoint. I love seeing the former bad boy turn into this sweet loving man and watching them progress into someone who loves fully. JC definitely did this with Libitz. But how could he not love her with all of her amazing attitude and confidence?

Libitz, man did I love her. She completely kept JC on his toes and it made it so much more interesting. Out of all the female characters from The Rousseau family, I think Libitz is my favorite. There was this spunk about her that just made you love her and want to get to know her even more.

He had total control of his game--until she changed all the rules . . .
As one of the best players in the NHL and the "golden boy" of the league, Avery Westwood knows he has to keep his cool--on and off the ice. His whole life is a carefully constructed image of perfection for the media and his brand sponsors. Of course, that means he can never let his true feelings show. But when it comes to the sexy sister of his former teammate, Avery might be willing to make an exception . . . even if it means breaking all his own rules.

As far as Stephanie Deveau is concerned, having a thing for Avery is the equivalent of psychological napalm. Très bad idea. Then he moves in next door, all sexy smiles and a deliciously hot body that she can't resist. Something's happening between them--it's intense, a little (a lot) out of control, and real. Only Avery doesn't know everything about Stephanie's past. And the one exception to his rule might just be the one girl who could destroy his career.

[Release Blitz] After We Fall by Melanie Harlow


After We Fall by Melanie Harlow
 Publication Date: November 28th, 2016
 Genre: Contemporary Romance



Jack Valentini isn’t my type.
Sexy, brooding cowboys are fine in the movies, but in real life, I prefer a suit and tie. Proper manners. A close shave.
Jack might be gorgeous, but he’s also scruffy, rugged, and rude. He wants nothing to do with a “rich city girl” like me, and he isn’t afraid to say so.
But I’ve got a PR job to do for his family’s farm, so he’s stuck with me for ten days, and I’m stuck with him. His glares. His moods. His tight jeans. His muscles.
His huge, hard muscles.
Pretty soon there’s a whole different kind of tension between us, the kind that has me misbehaving in barns, trees, and pickup trucks. I’ve never done anything so out of character—but it feels too good to stop.
And the more I learn about the grieving ex-Army sergeant, the better I understand him. Losing his wife three years ago left him broken and bitter and blaming himself. He doesn’t think he deserves a second chance at happiness.
But he’s wrong.
I don’t need to be his first love. If only he’d let me be his last.
“Second chances are not given to make things right, but are given to prove that we could be even better after we fall.” —Unknown

“Why’d you push me earlier?” 

“It’s not important.” 

But it was. She felt it in her chest. It was so important, and she needed him to say it again. She was salivating for the chance. She wanted to reassure him, and this time she felt it in her heart. She knew she wasn’t going anywhere. She wanted him to see it in her eyes, that she meant every single word. 

She whispered now, “Ask me. Ask me again.” 

His eyes met hers, narrowing slightly. He was looking into her, reading her. 

She was letting him. There was no wall, no hesitation this time. She wanted him to know her, not just her body. All of her. A second passed. He was still searching in her. Another second. More. He waited a full thirty before asking, his voice so soft and tender, “What would you do if you found out another person cared about you? If you mattered to one more person?” 

“Nothing.” She was trying to convey her feelings through her eyes. She wanted him to know so badly. “I wouldn’t run. I wouldn’t walk. I wouldn’t hide. I’d do nothing except stand and embrace it.” 

His eyes darkened, an emotion passed in them, one that had her heart beating so fast again. “Yeah?” He let go of her hand, but touched the side of her face. He held her in the palm of his hand, and his thumb rubbed over her cheek. It was like he was smoothing away any lingering worries she might have. “What if I was that person?” 

She leaned toward him, her eyes going from his lips back to his gaze. Both were pulling her in, making her yearn for more. “Then I’d say, I feel the same.” Her breath held in her throat. They were talking in code, but it was out now. She was telling him how she felt, and a second later, his lips were on hers.

This. She turned, wound her arms around his neck. This was everything.

[Excerpt Reveal] Own by KI Lynn and N. Isabelle Blanco

Own by K.I. Lynn & N. Isabelle Blanco is the highly anticipated conclusion to the Need Series!

Get your copy now at:

Kira’s finally mine.
And nobody and nothing is going to take her from me. I’ll fight for her, to the death. Do anything for her.
There’s no more living without her. No more holding back my feelings.
If only it was enough.
We’re surrounded every day.
Everyone knows us. Now, they suspect. The odds are stacked against us more than before.
We live in the shadows, hiding our love from the entire world.
But not for long.
I refuse to live like this anymore.
I’ll do whatever it takes to own her. I’m waging a dark war against those that stand against us.
And I will win.
That girl is going to be mine forever, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it.


Why the fuck is Kira at this party?
Stupid question.
I have no right to begrudge her this. She should be here, having fun, experiencing college to the fullest.
It just burns that she came here without telling me. That she didn’t even think of inviting me.
That she’s pushing me away while making time to sit on the grass with Austin.
If Dana hadn’t told Ryan to call me, I wouldn’t have known Kira was here.
This party is taking place in one of the student’s homes—a mansion so fucking big, it’s bordering on ridiculous.
I’m never going to find Kira here, and according to what Dana told Ryan, Kira’s shitfaced. Drunk out of her mind.
And Dana lost her.
Growling under my breath, I push past the crowd, ignoring every drunk girl who tries to grope me.
Sometimes I wonder how I ever got high off this kind of attention. How my ego fed on it. It’s annoying as fuck.
I’ve already checked the large ass kitchen. Two of the sitting rooms. The foyer. The pool room. And almost every room upstairs.
I get a text from Dana. Marilyn just spotted her going into the movie theater on the first floor. OMW there now.
Of course this place has a movie theater, too.
Fucking ridiculous, as I said.
I about-face and practically fly down the stairs. I have no idea where the hell the movie theater is, so I grab a few people as I walk and ask them.
All of them are as clueless as I am.
They look at me as if I’m crazy.
To them, I probably look like I am.
Finally, I find one person who knows. Don’t know who he is, don’t care. He points me in the right direction, and I rush away without even thanking him.
The theater is all the way in the back of the house, in an area that’s actually empty. I get there in time to see Dana opening the door and rushing in.
Man, she’s an awesome girl. I could never thank her enough for caring for Kira the way she obviously does.
I go inside and find the small theater empty, except for Dana, Marilyn . . .
And Kira.
My breath whooshes out of me at the sight of her. I’m instantly hard, aching, furious, and possessive.
We haven’t fucked in days and I’d be lying if I said my balls aren’t full to bursting. I need sex right now like I need air and she’s the only person to give it to me.
But she came here, in that tiny, dark purple dress.
I have no right to tell her how to dress--but what the fuck is she doing coming to a party dressed like that without me?
Kira’s leaning against one of the chairs all the way at the front of the theater, refusing to move despite Marilyn urging her.
It’s obvious she really is drunk as a motherfucker.
“I just want to be alone, guys,” she says, almost whining.
I refuse to be amused. Now’s not the time. I’m too pissed at her.
But, fuck me. She’s sexy, adorable, and those lips are begging for my cock.
“I know, sweetie. But it’s not good for you to be alone right now.”
Kira swats Marilyn away. “Stop your shit, woman. You’re not my mother.”
Even Dana laughs at that one.
“She’s not. But I’m your man. And I say you’re not going to be alone.”
They all turn to stare at me as I walk down the short steps toward them.
Kira’s eyes flare with resentment.
With lust.
She rakes me with a cold stare that still manages to burn my entire body with how hungry it is.
Damn. If any of these girls just happen to look down a bit, they’re going to get an eyeful of how hard my dick is.
“I don’t want you here, either.” She swats me away like an imperious little queen.
“Girls. Leave us.”
Marilyn and Dana hesitate at my tone.
I don’t have time for this shit. “Now.”
Dana snaps to action first and leads Marilyn up the stairs and out of the theater.
Kira’s still looking at me with that rebellious hunger, a lust-filled sneer on her face.
I have no qualms about reaching down and palming my dick in front of her.
Her eyes flare hungrily.
“We’re leaving, Kitty. Now.” I can’t fuck her until she sobers up considering how angry at me she is, but I’m getting her home.
Kira steps toward me and stumbles at bit.
I rush forward and catch her, pulling her up against me.
Contact. Seering, torturous contact. I have my arms wrapped around her, my hands on her ass, before I realize what I’m doing. As always, it’s an instant reaction. Absolutely zero control over my own body.
Kira pushes at my chest and that sexy small growl she gives me turns me on so much. “Don’t touch me.”
My barely leashed temper snaps free. “Like hell. You’re mine.”
She struggles against me, her body sliding along mine. “Excuse me if I don’t want to go back to fucking the dick I’ve seen inside Jennifer two too many times.”
She’s hurting. I get it. Shit, I’d be even more feral in her shoes.
But I’ll be damned if I let her pretend she doesn’t want me anymore.
Fisting her hair, I slide my other hand under her dress and roughly shove her panties to side.
Kira lets out a broken gasp at the feel of my fingers slipping inside her.
I move them around on purpose so she can hear how wet she is. “Lie to me again. Tell me you don’t want me,” I growl in her face.
Her arms wind around my neck and she slams her lips against mine. Growling at me like she  hates me and wants to eat me at the same time, she kisses me with everything she has.
Owning me.
Trying to control me.
I want nothing more than to show her who’s fucking in charge here, but she’s licking my tongue like it’s the tip of my dick, and her hips are thrusting up and down, fucking my fingers.
Using me for her pleasure.
Her body locks up, her plump pussy swelling around my fingers. A throb, a rush of liquid, and she’s squirting into my hand, her sexy moans echoing between our lips.
God damn.
I manhandle her, my mind cracking under the pressure of so much need. Spinning, I fall to my knees on the short steps and place her beneath me.
The steps are short but they’re huge. Enough to accommodate her lower body on one.
Kira leans back with her elbows on the step above her. Head thrown back, gorgeous throat exposed, she struggles to pull in air.
I lean back on my haunches and yank my belt open.
The sound makes her raise her head. By the time her eyes are on my crotch, I already have my glistening cock out in my hand.
She whispers my name like a prayer.
This is what I need. No more distance. No more pain. Just her and her nearly demonic need to have me.
And I need this even more.
I grab her thighs and tug her toward me. Kira says my name again. Her hands land on my shoulders, fisting my shirt.
I spread her legs wide, wider than I probably should, and slide that juicy cunt right onto my dick.
Her body arches off the stairs like she’s being possessed.
She is.
If I haven’t left enough of me inside her for her to understand—for her to accept—that I own her and always will . . .
I’m going to remedy that.
And there’s nothing she can do about it.
I pull my hips back, slow, hissing at the slick feel of her pussy walls tightening. Trying to keep me in.
Kira whimpers, clenching me even harder.
Wanting to let me go and powerless to do anything but keep me.
Using all my strength, I slam back into her.
One hard, vicious thrust.
She cries out and comes all over me.
Just like that.
I crack my neck, a growl purring through my chest, and lay into her. No mercy. No thought.
I’m close. Just a few more pumps into that slick cunt.
Kira fists my hair, her moans bouncing off the walls around us. I lower myself down and brace my elbows on either side of her head.
She tries to tug me down and kiss me.
I slide one hand beneath her head, fisting that beautiful hair, and drag her up to me. “Who told you that you could come here dressed like that?”
She bites my lip hard enough to make my vision snap white. I think I taste blood. “Fuck you. You don’t own m—” She chokes on her words with my next thrust.
I can’t stop groaning, yet somehow I’m laughing in her face at the ridiculousness of her statement. “You want to keep fucking lying to yourself, Kitty?”
She hisses like the wild cat she is and leans up to lick across my bottom lip. When she pulls back, I see it.
Her lips are stained with the blood she drew from me.
I press my lips to her, our tongues dueling. We’re nothing but a mindless mass of sex, and I can feel the come rising up my shaft.
In the back of my head, it registers that I hear people speaking.
Drawing closer.
On the other side of the door.
“That bitch ruined my life!”
“First off, don’t ever call her a bitch in front of me. Got it? Secondly, you have no proof it was her that sent your parents that video. Third, back the fuck off, or I’m going to forget we were ever—”
The door opens.
I raise my head enough to look up. For a split second, the fact that we’ve been caught freezes me.
Then I see two pairs of familiar blue eyes locked on us.
