5 Star Review: Second of All from The Downey Trilogy by @GenevieveDewey #ASMSG

Kikibanner

A #naughtycouch exclusive excerpt from Second of All by Genevieve Dewey 

She felt a fissure of awareness that made goose bumps on her skin and she somehow knew he had shifted his brooding gaze to her profile. She waited for him to say something, but the limo remained silent. She felt him shift ever so slightly towards her then the car began to slow.

 

“We’re here, Miss Downey,” Kevin said through the intercom.

 

“Thank you, Kevin,” Kiki answered, slipping her heels back on.

 

She glanced at James and saw he was frowning menacingly at his jacket across from him. It was both exciting and off-putting at the same time. Exactly who was he mad at? Her? Her family? Poor Kevin? Ugh, she was so tired of worrying about everyone else’s feelings. When Kevin opened the door she got out and marched into the lobby without waiting for James. She pretended like he didn’t exist as they rode in the elevator to their sensibly priced room (as sensible as one could get at a five-star luxury hotel – a hard-won victory on her part over his stubborn pride). She could tell he was still sending her intense almost predatory looks, but if he wasn’t going to communicate, why should she?

 

Kiki heard the hotel door thunk closed behind them and the snick of the security bolt as she walked forward started taking her heels off. She hadn’t made it but three steps in when James grabbed her arm and twirled her around. She looked into his eyes, startled, and gasped a little as he yanked her towards him, crushing his mouth to hers. She could taste the alcohol from his drinks on his lips and reflexively put her arms around him as he wrapped his arms around her, kissing her madly.

 

James hitched her up around his waist and pressed her up against the wall of the hotel room, one hand making its way under her dress and yanking her underpants down a bit. Her head felt sandwiched between the wall and his mouth, his tongue as demanding as his fingers on her pelvis. She dug her fingernails into his arms and wrapped her legs around him, trying to both get a better grip and a bit more freedom. Instead he pressed his torso even more against hers, and she could feel the gun from his holster against her side and the badge against his belt. He scooted her up a bit then dropped his grip on her waist, and undid his pants as her legs slowly listed down. She held onto his shoulders with her hands, and managed to gasp out between kisses,

 

“James!”

 

He ignored her and finished dropping his pants, then grabbed her legs back up around his waist. His mouth crushed against hers again, almost painfully in its possessiveness and his hands grabbed her hands and pressed them above her head against the wall…

 

I know you’re reading to go and buy it already… but wait!!!

 

Please read my 5 STAR REVIEW … then you may go buy both books!

Second of All-

 

I’m always afraid I’m going to give away too much in my reviews… and the last one I did; I was accused of being a book spoiler.

So…

I love the series so far. I just wrote the review for first in the series, First, I love you, and I can’t wait for the 3rd book to come out Third Time’s the Charm

The author Genevieve Dewey takes you to the heart of Chicago, and deposits you in the middle of the Downey family. The Godfather meets Romance, that’s how I would describe this book. Each character is unique and quirky, and I feel it allowed the reader to step into one or more of the characters shoes, and walk their path.

I loved the way each person seemed to interact with the next, and before the series is complete; I’m sure we will see just how each and every character connects.

This series reminds me a lot of the movie Crash … Different couples, very different lives, and how through life events they cross paths, and find hope in the end. This book gives you hope, lets you dream, and surprises you often.

You won’t want to miss this series. This author is going places.

#Naughtyville Approved.

Excerpt: 

Ginny stood a bit on her now bare tiptoes and rested her chin on his shoulder. Tommy turned his head to kiss her temple, his lips lingering and then moving whisper-soft towards her ear. She struggled to hold back the shudder of pleasure, selfishly enjoying the intimacy and romantic thrill of the moment.

“Thank you,” Tommy said softly.

“For what?” Ginny asked.

“For being my Ginny.”

She didn’t think about her resolution to not make any moves, she wasn’t thinking about anything but their complicated friendship and her own frustrated feelings as she pulled her hands free, moved to the side and then in front of him. She placed her hands on his upper arms and his hands moved to her hips. She looked him straight in the eyes and ignored the returning twinge of sympathy she felt at the obvious fatigue on his features and the thrill she felt from the look of sexual longing in his eyes.

“Tommy, you have to stop this. It’s killing me. You’re giving me mixed messages,” Ginny began, trying desperately to use her professional ‘put him in his place’ tone but it came out a bit plaintive for her tastes. He winced and closed his eyes.

“I know. I’m sorry,” Tommy said then opened his eyes again. “It’s just… you mean something to me, Gin, and I’m afraid if we take it to the next level – have sex – it will mess it up, our friendship. If it was anybody else, I’d take that chance, but you, you’re different than the rest. In just six months you’ve become… Hell, I can’t explain it.”

He let out a harsh breath and she expected him to remove his hands from her hips to run them through his hair but instead he only gripped them tighter. She floundered in confusion. Ginny wasn’t one to mince words, in fact she was often accused of using too many, but she had never been able to express herself properly around Tommy. She struggled with a thousand different tactics and persuasive arguments until her mind just seemed to jam from all the different permutations.

Kryptonite, indeed.

 

I had the privilege of being part of the “yes or no” team for First, I Love You and Second of All Covers.  Of course Gen had the final say, they are her book babies…. but I have to admit I loved her choices for both covers.  Didn’t you?

What?  You haven’t seen the cover for Second of all? Why?

Oh… I didn’t show you???  Oops!

I told you it was gorgeous… and so is the story that lies between the cover.

You won’t want to put it down!  See my 5 star review here!
