A Sex-excerpt & A Giveaway Anyone? Welcome to the 18 and Over Giveaway Hop!

Well, it's time for the 18 and Over Giveaway Hop hosted by the lovely Gabrielle Bisset ( ) and Bitten by Paranormal Romance ( ) Welcome!
Since this hop is all about the sexy. I've decided to choose two lucky winners at the end of it. Up for grabs is my two latest page burning shorts, No Strings Attached from Decadent Publishing and Loving Logan from Secret Cravings Publishing.
I hope you all enjoy the Sex-excerpts below. To enter all I ask is that you follow or subscribe to the blog if you have the chance and leave a comment, your email address with it, and your choice between the two books. Easy peasy!
** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** **

Julie Saunders and Gunnery Sergeant, Ryan Hawke have both hit a rough patch in life. Demanding jobs ensure there aren’t enough hours in the day to get out there and meet people. Tired of feeling lonely and in need of attention, they turn to the personals for a no-strings-attached encounter.

When Ryan sees Julie’s response to his ad for a hook up, he’s relieved he’s found a sane one in the bunch. She’s beautiful, they share the same goals, and she’s got a hell of an adventurous side–just what he needs.
Can reality live up to expectations or will a no-strings hook-up leave them
craving more?
He slung her over his shoulder and she squealed with laughter while he ran toward the truck. Parked in the shade, it was dark enough to partially hide them from view. He loosened his hold so she could slide to the ground, every mouth watering muscle in his body molding to her along the way. She pulled him close, breast to chest, and he captured her mouth again. His tongue slid across the slit of her lips, savoring her taste before he nipped at her bottom lip. “What do you say we take the edge off a bit?”

“I’m game. What do you have in mind?” Moisture soaked her thong and she became a little breathless with excitement. Ryan’s calloused palms roamed down her sides to the hem of her dress. Gripping it ever so slowly, he pulled it up.
“First, I’m going to get this sexy dress out of the way and check how wet you are for me.” Hard fingers squeezed her ass. “Then I’m going to unzip my pants, lift you so you can wrap those very sexy legs around my waist, and enjoy the tight, wet, warmth of your pussy around my cock while I fuck you fast and hard. I plan to make you come and drown out your cries with my mouth. When we’re both satisfied, then and only then, will we go back to your place and start all over. Only next time we’ll take our time.”
“Damn, that sounds good.” She bit her lip thinking about it. “What if somebody sees us?”
“Doesn’t that make it a more exciting experience? The element of being caught at any moment a turn on?” He grinned. “It’s not likely anyone will notice. I’ll make it look like we’re just two lovers enjoying an innocent embrace. A heated kiss, if you will. Besides, I’m not sure how long this first time will last, which, if I’m being honest won’t be that long at all. I’m so worked up, it’ll be fast and hard, but I promise to make you come at least once before we leave.”
** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** **
He’s a solid muscular walking fantasy that knows all her secrets, except one. Standing tall at six foot four, Logan Sullivan had a smile that could make her heart skip a beat. But how does one tell their best friend they’re in love with them without ruining the friendship?
Caitlyn Harper hasn’t figured it out yet and it’ll take almost losing him for good for her to take that chance on love.
After surviving a road side bomb attack during his second tour in Afghanistan, Logan finally returns home battered and bruised both mentally and physically and looks forward to seeing the people that mean the most, including his sexy best friend, Caity. She gives him hope and reminds him of the man he once was. Making him feel even better once she declares her love, but can he overcome the nightmare of what he endured to make it work?
“I’m sorry, Logan. I never meant—I just wasn’t thinking.” Taking a deep breath, she walked towards him, and very slowly reached for his hand. “Would you like to sit for a minute?”
He nodded, bringing her closer as he sat on Trent’s bed. “You know it might have been a turn on if I didn’t know that I obviously scared you.” Caitlyn smiled sympathetically.
“What?” Logan laughed without humor. “Leave it to you to turn an attack into a joke. I didn’t hurt you too much, did I?”
“Nothing I won’t be able to survive. I’m sorry, Logan.” She reached down to give him comfort. Her fingers sliding and stroking through his thick dark hair as he pressed his face against her stomach to hide his emotion.
“I love you.” She bent over to kiss the top of his head and he moaned enjoying the feel of her hands on him. “I’ve always loved you, Logan, and I’m tired of waiting around and not doing anything about it.” He leaned back to look her in the eye again with curiosity, but before he could say anything she continued on. “I was always afraid that if we became something more it might jeopardize our friendship, and then when I almost lost you I knew I couldn’t live with myself without telling you exactly how I feel, to at least try.”

“Caitlyn, I...” She placed her finger on top of his lips to stop him and he could tell she was afraid he’d reject her when her own tears began to fall.

“Let me love you, Logan. Give me at least tonight.”

Screw this. Logan stood, and pulled her against him. Turning around he backed her towards the bed this time and gently placed her on top of it. His lips sought hers to continue where their earlier kiss left off, and he hoped to show her how he felt since she didn’t seem to want him to talk at the moment. She felt so good against him, soft, lush, and better than he imagined. She was damn near perfect and he loved how responsive she was. They moaned in unison as soon as her heated core met his straining erection. His dick had a mind of his own, and without thinking about it his hips began to thrust and she met him with her own. Fucking each other with their clothes on, he was just about ready to shoot a load in his pants.
“Yeah, Ma, I’ll check but he’s probably already with her.” They heard Trent call from the hallway.

“Uh oh.” Caity giggled.

“No, shit.” Leave it to Trent to ruin the moment. Damn! The door knob turned just as Logan tried to quickly help Caity to her feet.

“There you are.” Trent grinned, with a mischievous glint in his eye. “Sorry to interrupt, but everything is all set and if you two want to continue without anymore disruption then I think you’d better continue elsewhere.” He gave Caitlyn a wink.

“Thanks, Trent.” Caitlyn gave him a hug and a kiss on the cheek.

“What’s all set? What the hell is going on?” Logan pulled her next to him again, making Trent laugh.

“I’ll let Caity explain it, while I cover for your ass. Have fun, big brother, and welcome home.” Trent left them alone leaving Caitlyn to enact her plan.

Logan turned to face her and waited for an explanation. “I figured you’d be about ready to ditch
this shindig, and I was hoping that I could whisk you away to have that talk.” She looked at the bed again and grinned. “Or better yet, continue where we left off.”

“Oh, and where do you plan on taking me?”

“You’ll see.” Caitlyn beamed at him with excitement. “I plan on loving you properly tonight, Logan. You ready?”
