This is the year…

…to be who you were meant to be.


Don’t wait, but don’t feel overwhelmed or defeated at the pace in which you are seeing results. Just keep doing, thinking, planning, acting, dreaming, envisioning, TRYING, chasing.


Don’t you dare stop. If there is one thing I have learned in life, is that one of the best places to be in life is the place where you don’t even know what you don’t know.

~Robert Montgomery

So just keep trying, and I will too. We will get there if we don’t give up.




Mid Week Tease … Desire Unexpected! #MWTease

MWTease15Welcome to Mid Week Tease!

Happy Hump Day, friends. Thank you so much, Miss Bunino, for continuing to bring us together for this quick, sexy reading fun. Author friends, join in next week, won’t you? Check the bottom of Sandra’s post for the sign up. Readers, thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to check us out. Lately I’ve been working hard writing but just am not ready to tease yet, so this week I was overjoyed to have smexy author S.J. Maylee to share a bit from her latest, Desire Unexpected (Assassins and Sweethearts Series, 1)! Take it away, S.J.!

Thank you so much for having me this week, Carlene! This sexy little tease takes place very shortly after the tiny snippet that I’m sharing today. You can read that at

“Maybe this isn’t such a good idea.” He stepped away from the bed.

“Don’t go.” She pushed herself back and grasped onto her headboard, pulled her knees back, and spread her legs wide. “Please, don’t go. Don’t deny me. Please, sir.”


“Yes?” She looked straight up to the ceiling. Not able to bear the look in his eyes when he refused to give her what she wanted most. She pushed her knees farther apart.

The room was void of sound. No rustling of clothes. No footsteps. He hadn’t left.

She lowered her gaze. Cool air greeted her warm pussy and all her worries were pushed out with one idea. His gaze is on me.


Life is passing Nadia Duskin by from her position in the mailroom. It only fulfills two necessities, keeping the repo man away and keeping her up to date on her sexy CEO. Ethan Wright is prepared to frighten and fire the nosey girl who sorts his company’s mail. After engaging with her at one of his favorite places in the world, he digs deeper.

Together, they find the kind of pleasure that could keep them satisfied for a lifetime. Her love may be the key to putting both of their lives back on track, but to what end? When a man he’s been contracted to kill threatens Nadia’s life, he forces her to face reality. Either they’ll delve deeper into the desires neither expected or they may die trying.

Be Warned: spanking, light BDSM, public exhibition

S.J. MASJ Maylee avatarYLEE BIO:

S.J. Maylee fell in love with storytelling at a young age and with it came a deep-seated desire for everyone to find their happily ever after. She’s finding the happy endings for her characters one steamy story at a time.

When she’s not reading or writing, you can find her caring for her garden, laughing with her two young sons, or dancing to her husband’s music. She’s a PMP (Project Management Professional), Nia instructor, and coffee addict.

As a writer she has a tendency to break hearts, but she always glues them back together.

Mid Week Tease…Wicked Flower $0.99 sale! #MWTease

Welcome to Mid Week Tease!


Happy Hump Day, friends. Thank you so much, Miss Bunino, for continuing to bring us together for this quick, sexy reading fun. Author friends, join in next week, won’t you? Check the bottom of Sandra’s post for the sign up. Readers, thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to check us out. Well a certain bass playing, lead singing rock star is very pleased with himself … the ever-wonderful Evernight has put his book, Wicked Flower, on sale for 99 cents for a limited time! This is one of my favorite little games he plays with Dani… 

Prove it.

In her head, Dani had thought those two words would have been the things to send Sinister Superman running. But here he was, inching closer. The four metal stall walls absorbed nothing. Not his smell that splashed itself on her skin like expensive cologne and none of his sensual intensity that scorched her throat. What had she gotten herself into with this one? She licked her teeth, hoping they weren’t purple with licorice bits stuck in the cracks.

“I meant it,” she said, not letting herself chicken out now that he’d pulled her in with those sexy but tender eyes and the candy gesture. Thom might not want what she had to offer, but something told Dani this guy did. That he’d take it greedily and not apologize afterward. But then his eyes narrowed like he didn’t believe her. If he was rich like she suspected, that unrepentant air shouldn’t come as a surprise.

“You want proof?” he asked. He took his aviator sunglasses from that crown of dark waves on top of his head and coolly set them down on top of the toilet paper dispenser. Dani followed his hands as he did so, admiring his movements and the crisp precision of his tattoos. “You sure about that?” The way he looked down at her caused Dani’s skin to shiver.
