Crossing Lines Blurb


The world’s best-stocked toy drawer can only take a gal so far. Bored with her current assortment of vibrating, plastic pieces, Sam Wallace decides to add a new sex toy to her collection: Kevin Mazze. The sexy Italian is more than happy to help her live out her long-held sexual fantasies, and trusting him with her body is easy. Trusting him with her heart, however, is not… especially when he commits an unforgiveable sin.

Kevin Mazze is one of the good guys. He’s spent his life always doing the right things and making those around him happy. When he meets the woman of his dreams, at the worst possible time, he finds himself making bad choices in the name of good and crossing lines he never thought he would… while praying she never finds out.

Please be advised, “Crossing Lines” contains adult language and adult situations and is not suitable for young readers.

Chapter Seven

Sam had never seen such a magnificent house, and while fascinated with the site layout, construction, and landscaping, she was intimidated by the enormity. “Who lives here?”

“Cynthia and Max Holden own the property,” Kevin said, easing her onto one of the poolside chaise loungers. “Max is currently indisposed, so Cynthia needs help keeping up with everything. Since I split my time between Myrtle Beach and Riverside, I don’t need anything bigger than the guesthouse. When their daughter, Callie, moved out, I moved in. The arrangement works well—”

Spencer and Michy burst through the open front door with towels in hand. “Can we go swimming now, Uncle Kevin?”

Kevin turned to Sam. “Can Michaela swim?”

“Yep.” She gave Michy her stern-mother face, which Michy returned with an I’m-too-freaking-adorable-to-ever-get-into-trouble grin. “No splashing.”

Michy’s grin slipped to a pout. “You aren’t coming in with us? You got on your bathing suit.”

Kevin’s head swiveled her way and his eyes lowered, as if trying to confirm visually.

She had no idea what he’d been thinking while carrying her to the backyard, but when he stopped and his hot, hungry eyes devoured her mouth, she nearly orgasmed on the spot. The sexual energy rolling off him had been a powerful shock, paralyzing her lungs. Trapped in his gaze, she couldn’t do anything but hold her breath and prepare for his onslaught.

Unfortunately, she’d been spared.

She didn’t know if he held back because of the kids, or because he wanted to be a gentleman and not move too fast. Whatever the reason, she hoped they passed that particular roadblock soon, because the real Kevin, in person and on fire, was a million times better than any fantasy.

Knowing he was attracted was the encouragement she needed to move forward with her plan to lure and seduce.

Michy hopped from foot to foot, waiting for Sam’s answer.

“I might get in a little later, sweetie.” Right now, I’m going to sit here and work on my diabolical plan.

The words had barely left her mouth when Michy tossed the towel at her and chirped, “Okay,” then turned and ran full-throttle into the pool. Spencer dropped his glasses on top of his towel and ran after her.

“She’s devastated I’m not swimming.”

Kevin’s laugh was deep and throaty. “Yeah, she’s real torn up.” He picked up Spencer’s towel and glasses and set them on the chair before turning toward the house. “I’m gonna grab a beer. Would you like soda, beer,”—he grinned broadly—“whiskey to kill the pain?”

“Wow, you’re really going to be my cabana boy.” She wasn’t sure, but she might’ve accidentally sighed out loud. “I’m not much of a whiskey girl. The beer sounds great, but I better stick with water. Do you have any ibuprofen?”

“Yes, ma’am.” He crossed his arm over his stomach and bowed gallantly. “Coming right up.”

Several minutes later, he returned with a bottle of pain reliever and a soft-sided cooler. He unzipped the top, set a Budweiser on the ground at his feet, and grabbed a bottle of water. Holding it out to her, he said, “Sure you don’t want something stronger?”
