To Keep You Humble - Dog Poo and Toilet Seats

 To Keep You Humble - Dog Poo and Toilet Seats

I was reflecting the other day about staying humble. Everyone sees diva behavior here and there and I definitely don't want to ever be one of those. I think I'm good though because I happen to be reflecting while on my hands and knees changing out my sons toilet seat in his bathroom. Talk about a reminder that I ain't all that. :)

And another limiting factor to keep everyone humble? Dog Poo.
The other night I was walking between our house and another storage barn to grab a case of water and stepped in dog poo on the way back to the house. Not once, not twice, but three times. Talk about some kind of record! It must have been some kind of poo mind field, and my lucky rabbit's foot was NOT with me that evening.

No one is immune to certain things every once in a while to remind each of us we are no different than anyone else.

But moments like this, the valleys for lack of a better term, make the peaks of this writing adventure seem that much higher when we're standing on top of one. 

My next big peak you ask?
June 12th.
Two more days.
My first EVER release day.

To celebrate I'm having a sex toys giveaway! How do you get entered to win you ask?

Book One in the Members Only Series. 
 Within the walls of The Library, a Members Only BDSM club, anything goes. It’s a dark oasis for every Dom and sub to discover their happily ever after. Screams of pleasure and pain echo through the walls every night, but beneath each cry lies a confession. Unrequited love, cravings of domination by more than just one, even the desire for someone of the same sex. Each member learns, to find their forever, they must unearth the strength to reveal…everything.

 She knows it’s wrong. Cyn shouldn’t have feelings for fraternal twins Jared and Chris, her best friends. She shouldn’t want them to tie her up or strap her down, to take her one at a time—or together. The only way to control her taboo desires is to write them down and lock them away in her diary. Guys like Jared and Chris could never be interested in someone like her, or in the kind of sex she craves.

 But Jared and Chris have read her diary, and sweet little Cyn is in for the shock of her life. The brothers not only own a members-only BDSM club, they want her. Need her. And now, with their unlimited funds and an entire establishment devoted to fulfilling her darkest pleasures, they’re going to claim Cyn for their own.

 Inside Scoop: If you have a kink, this book probably has it too. If you like your m√©nage romances extra hot with a side of male-male romance, spanking, voyeurism and girl-on-girl action, come and get it.

 A Romantica® BDSM erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

Unedited Excerpt

 “So, Cyn, why aren’t you fucking anybody?”

I sucked a mouthful of beer down the wrong pipe, sputtered and coughed my way through it, and nearly knocked over the glass bottle as I got it under control. The beer anyways. After wheezing through another breath I moved my drink aside. The last thing I needed was a wet spot in my lap. “Where in the hell did that come from?”

Jared Kennedy, one of my best friends, glanced at my fingers as I worried a heart charm at the bottom of a silver chain. A knowing smirk tilted his lips when he glanced up again. “Come on. Nobody creaming your Twinkie at the moment or do you not like sex in general? We want to know. So don’t be shy, spit it out.”

The other half of the we he referred to was his fraternal twin Chris, who watched us across an empty dance floor and from behind their bar thirty feet away. Still anxiously working the pendant back and forth, I turned once more to Jared.

He leaned against his chair, forearms crossed over his broad chest and an expectant smile revealed bright white teeth. The brothers had always done that. Known the right expression to make so I would answer anything. They acted broody or impatient and I’d give anything to make them happy. Pathetic—my middle name when it came to these two.

“I like it, J. As much as anybody does, I guess. Whether I like it to the same extent you and Chris do, I don’t know. Your appetites have always run on the high side according to the gossipmongers in town.” I squirmed in my seat. I admit it. One of my best friends was asking me if I liked sex and all I could think was…meh. My sex life…well, visualize the Titanic sinking and you get the gist. Most guys don’t appreciate being called another guy’s name—or two guys’ names—when you’re getting off. It’s a real deal breaker.

“Uh huh. It’s Saturday night and you’re here, like last night and the night before. Guys hit on you but you blow ‘em off. You work at the gym all day and help out here anytime we ask. Love our one-on-one time together on the weekends, and I know you’ve been helping Chris during the week too. CJ’s has gotten damn busy, and we dig the help, but you’ve been restless lately and we’ve both noticed. What gives?”

Getting to work at the bar with both of them on a weekend was rare. One of them was normally MIA. But tonight? From the moment I stepped foot inside they were watching me. Shivers of awareness raced over my skin, but I was too chicken to actually do anything about it. A blush slithered its way up my bare shoulders, crawled all over my failing willpower and flipped on a big neon sign above my head, flashing, “Not Gettin’ Any”. That Jared and Chris knew my social calendar was on par with reservations at a leper colony just plain sucked. The three of us had been close for years, but this was way beyond what my heart—and several other tingly parts—could handle.

“You’re hot. You haven’t been with anyone since Matt.”

Mild panic settled in the pit of my stomach because Jared wasn’t going to drop it. Thankfully my beer sat well out of reach.

“Not that it’s any of your business but who’s to say I’m not having sex every night and twice on Sundays?” I cocked a blonde eyebrow in his direction with a little sultry thrown in, with what I hoped was a sassy twist of my lips. That sass faded into scared rabbit when he gave me that look again. Same one he’d been giving me all night long. The one I’d seen for years and hated because it was never directed at me.

It was Jared on the make. My adrenal gland kicked into high gear. I was a little bit thrilled and a whole lot terrified.

He was always the comedian. He’d played pranks on me anytime he could, but this was no joke.

His gaze remained locked on me and his blue eyes, shadowed by thick lashes, taunted me with sexual promise. Female residents of our fair city of Arcadia had spent years fantasizing over his tanned skin and muscled frame. Right at the height of my ogling, he speared long fingers through his blond, sun-streaked hair. It wasn’t long enough to negate any of his rugged appeal but it was far from the military cut he’d worn for years. Currently it was perfect to hold onto for a nice long ride.

As his hair fell across his brow, he leaned onto the table to grab his beer. He grazed my arm on the way and I locked my muscles up good and tight to suppress another shiver. My reaction to them? Spontaneous combustion. But tonight was different. Tonight they noticed how I responded to them. They threw logs on the smoldering fire every chance they got. Touching me, teasing me. Staring at me as if they knew how wet I was. For them. Only them.

He hooked an elbow on the back of his chair, legs wide as he drank deeply from a longneck. His lips caressed the cold glass as he sucked the bitter liquid into his mouth, and his Adam’s apple dipped low as he swallowed. My tongue traced my bottom lip and my inner harlot jumped up with her hand in the air. By all that was holy, if I was in the middle of some wet dream and woke up in the middle of another empty orgasm alone in my bed, I was going to scream.

I've got a bunch of them actually! I've made a note for next month and share a few of them. I posted one on facebook a couple months ago and then several weeks later it showed up on pinterest from someone I'd never heard of before. Gotta love social media!

Anne said...

What doesn't? I have cats, so cleaning litter boxes and being a can opener is a daily reminder to stay grounded. I have a masters degree but at work I box kits and count and bag things. No diva issues for me.

Jennifer Kacey said...

Litter box - ABSOLUTELY! Am very familiar with that chore. One I'd love to find a fairy to take over for me.

Ashley Applebee said...

Having to babysit my friend's kids and deal with runny noses, screaming 4 year old tantrums and injuries keeps me grounded in reality.
Sounds like a great read!!
