The Seduction of Kinley Foster by Lisa Wells
Release date: 5/9/16
Librarian Kinley Foster wants to write erotic romance—the steamy, sexy, curl-your-toes kind of stuff. The problem? She desperately needs a little erotic inspiration. And at a romance convention in Vegas, she finds it…or rather him. The sizzlingly sexy guy who refused Kinley—and her virginity—when she was sixteen.
Now it’s time for a little payback.
Literary agent Ian Thompson is a professional. Mentoring an aspiring author is one thing. Giving her a thorough and thoroughly satisfying sexy education is quite another. Especially when she’s as stunning and deliciously curvaceous as Kinley. Yet Ian can’t help himself when Kinley makes him a wager he can’t resist. A wager that will tempt Ian to cross every professional—and every sensual—boundary in the book…
“Who are you calling?” Ian asked, giving her a lazy, seductive look.
The words he spoke barely registered. Probably because the way they sounded coming out of his mouth short-circuited her brain and super-charged her girly-parts.
His deep rumbly voice left her feeling naughty. Like scandal and sin were dancing on her soul.
Confused with her body’s betrayal, she glowered. “None of your business.”
“Calling your brother?”
She shrugged. Maybe she was calling her boyfriend. He didn’t now she didn’t have one. Unless her brother told him. “Maybe?”
Disappointment darkened his eyes. “I see you’re still a snitch.” He handed the suitcase to the driver, who stored it in the trunk, and opened the passenger door.
Her determination wavered. Damn him. Why should he be disappointed in her? “Whatever.” He was the bad guy. Not her. She dropped her phone in her purse.
“Thank you,” he said, in a voice that sounded sincere.
She rolled her eyes, not caring that the gesture was childish.
He motioned toward the open door to the backseat. “After you.”
Halfway in, she felt the sharp sting of his hand on her ass.
She inhaled sharply, scrambled the rest of the way in, and turned on him. “How dare you. You can’t just slap a woman’s a**. Especially one who despise you. What the hell—”
The sound of his laughter cut off her tirade, and she grimaced. Damn it. She’d reacted exactly the way he wanted. Just like when he used to pull her ponytail and she’d yelped.
Growing up, he’d been a master at riling her emotions. Not anymore. She was a grown woman, and her buttons were no longer so easily pushed.
He stuck his head in, an amused glint in his smug eyes. “You’ll find I dare a lot. And the swat was for insinuating I’m gay. And so what if I was?” He slid in beside her, scooting much closer than necessary. His shoulder touched her arm; his presence invaded her space.
Grown up Kinley rested the urge to thump him. Besides, if she did, the dramatic action would be more for show. And she prided herself on not being a drama queen.
Truth was, she was semi-turned on by the alpha-male ass-slap.
I loved the twist, or shall we say unusual circumstance, that Lisa Wells put into the overly used friends to lovers trope. To me, it was unique enough to attract me to reading the book. The gist of the story is two people who have known each other for ages turn their friendship into lovers. Simple, right? … Not even a little LOL
Let me gist a few details without giving you the entire story … At a very young age, Ian played the hero to Kinsley and we all know what happens when a young girl has a boy play hero for her….yup, you got it … undying love! But things don’t go smoothly for Kinley in that department way back then (as they mostly never do and as it should be lol). Now it’s present day, a decade later, and unbeknownst to Kinley, she is about to come up close and personal with Ian once again … and in my opinion, in a very unique circumstance kind of way. I LOVED IT 🙂
This is a story of taking chances, letting the past go and embracing the future. It was humorous and heart-warming and just plain sweet.
