Looking for a relatively quick, steamily hot, contemporary romance – look no further, grab yourself a copy of this, the first in a new series from the highly talented Katee Robert!
At college, Lucy Baudin chose Jeff – the wrong man – to have a relationship with, she really should have looked no further than her friend Gideon Novak! Now she’s asking him to be a matchmaker and to teach her how to not be boring in her sexual relationships. Jeff did a really great job of undermining her confidence and self-esteem and Gideon feels responsible for not protecting her from Jeff’s cheating ways sooner. Gideon feels like he owes her, so agrees to help. That’s just got to be the recipe for a brilliant friends to more romance with plenty of overt hot action packed encounters, some humour and, of course, love and misunderstandings to keep things interesting!
Katee Roberts is a skilled author, bringing her characters, scenarios and plot to life in the imagination of the reader. The story is only 159 pages long, but still manages to pack so much between the pages (or should that be sheets?). It is relatively light hearted, touches on the impact of an emotionally abusive relationship and shows how love can help heal the wounds such trauma causes. If you enjoy explicit contemporary romances, this has to be a great story for you to escape into!

Make Me Want Excerpt
Copyright © 2018 Katee Robert
“What the fuck, Lucy?”
“You know exactly what I’m talking about.” He pulled her dress up, though he didn’t need the confirmation. “You come in here with that cock tease of a dress and you aren’t wearing panties.” Jealousy and desire twisted viciously through him. “Were you going to give Aaron a little show?”
“Oh, please. Give me a little credit.” She lifted her chin. “I’m proving a point. You, Gideon Novak, don’t get to make my decisions for me. I appreciate your help, but that’s where it ends.”
She didn’t want him.
He was good enough to fuck but not good enough to listen to.
He kept a white-knuckled grip on his temper because having a knock-down, drag-out fight here and now wasn’t an option for either of them. Not to mention the fact that he didn’t have a right to be pissed. She’d laid out the terms that first day and if he chose to ignore them, that was on him—not on Lucy.
It didn’t make how shitty this situation was any easier to swallow.
Gideon stepped back. “The table. Bend over it.”
Her eyebrows inched up. “You can’t be serious.”
“As a fucking heart attack. I told you what would happen if you showed up like that, and you were all too eager to pick up that gauntlet. Choices have consequences, Lucy. This is one of them.”
She backed toward the table. One step. Two. “The consequences being that you’ll spank my ass red and then fuck me right here.”
She wants it.
It didn’t soothe his temper. If anything, it ratcheted it up a notch. She might want it but she didn’t want him. “The table.”
Lucy turned and, prim as a princess, bent over the table. She seemed to consider and then lowered her chest further until the top half of her body was flush against the polished wood. The position left her ass in the air and had her skirt riding up so he could see how turned on she was by this.
“Which part is getting you?” He stood between her and the door and pushed her dress the last few inches to bare her completely. “The spanking, the defiance, or the fact that we’re in an unlocked room where anyone could walk in—including your fucking date?”
She tilted her ass up, just a little, an offer that made his mouth water. But it was her words that sealed her fate. “All of the above.”
About Katee Robert
New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Katee Robert learned to tell her stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her 2015 title, The Marriage Contract, was a RITA finalist, and RT Book Reviews named it ‘a compulsively readable book with just the right amount of suspense and tension.” When not writing sexy contemporary and romantic suspense, she spends her time playing imaginary games with her children, driving her husband batty with what-if questions, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
