Every single thing I’ve been taught not to do…I just did.

Go into a stranger’s house? Check

Take candy from a stranger? Check

If this is a kidnapping, it’s the kindest one I’ve ever heard of.

I’m living a fat girl fantasy. Snatched from a Weight Watcher meeting by a powdered-donut eating stranger, was by far the most exciting thing that has ever happened to me. Who knew I didn’t need to make appointments or attend meetings to have someone to talk to. A Friend. Two Friends. A dark, intense stranger. Secrets.

Everything I ever wanted, and something’s I didn’t. Not every tasty treat is for eating.

To each his own….right?

It Will Always Be You by Tina Ness – Blog Tour

Sweet cover, with a  steamy, violent premise in the blurb. That’s what good drama is all about. – Sydney Aaliyah MichelleYou1

It Will Always Be You by Tina Ness (You #1) Publication date: October 26th 2014 Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Excerpt:  I’m still reveling in my sweet release when he shifts back. He hovers over me, finding my eyes. “Shh.” He brings a finger to his mouth. “My mind-reading skills are telling me something …” His eyes teasingly shoot open as he pretends to be listening to something. “What was that? You want me to make you squirm some more?”
Could he be any cuter? “Warning. Reading my mind could be detrimental to your health,” I say with weighted breath.
“Shit, woman, just when I think there’s no way I could possibly find you sexier, you open that sweet mouth of yours.” He kisses me hard, eating my mouth like he’s starving and I’m the first taste of food he’s had in weeks.
He enters me with a slow and steady rhythm like he did last time, and I love it. But right now, I want more—I need more. I take a tight grip of his firm ass and drive him into me more forcefully, telling him what I want. I find his eyes, and they’re blazing with an unleashed passion I want him to set free. I still get the sense that he is trying to be gentle, but I want him to know that that is not what I need right now. I need him to take me like he needs me, like he can’t live without me. I have to have this from him right now.

He grabs ahold of my hips, thrusting hard and deep inside me. Our breathing turns to ragged bursts as the sound of flesh against flesh fills the air, a sound I have never respected until now, here with Marshall.
Another orgasm builds in my belly, another sweet release even more intense than the last.
“Marshall,” I cry as he releases inside me and collapses around me, breathing into my hair. I wrap my legs around him, holding him there inside me, a connection I need for just a few more sweet moments.

Synopsis: It Will Always Be You can be read as a stand-alone After surviving four years with a commitment-phobic boyfriend, Elizabeth wants nothing more than to settle down. Too bad the man she desires, Marshall Roderick, leaves her flustered, trembling, and unable to utter a single word when he’s near. Assuming he’s the very definition of a womanizing bachelor, Elizabeth relegates him to fantasyland and makes no move to get to know him. That is, until a chance encounter along the shores of Lake Superior leads to drinks and a steamy romance. Confident, successful, and freakishly handsome, Marshall is everything Elizabeth has been looking for. But when an unthinkable act of violence shakes them both to the core, she discovers that Marshall isn’t as carefree and put-together as he led her to believe. Now it’s up to Marshall and Elizabeth to figure out if their love can heal the scars of the past and turn them into the people they’ve always wanted to be.
