Book Description:

She is pierced, dyed and tattooed born on the wrong side of the tracks. He is a traditional white knight born of the proverbial silver spoon. Their meeting was an accident, the fact that they became even the most tentative of friends, an anomaly. The only real thing they had in common... chemistry. Lots of chemistry. Unfortunately, that wasn't enough and Gia knew it. Now, if only she could convince her body...

Josh had always walked the line, lived the life he was expected to live. He had, by all accounts, the perfect life; a corporate lawyer, a beautiful home, a family empire to run, and the perfect fiancee. He was well on his way. The only question he had... was that really where he wanted to go? Plagued by dreams, Josh fought all his natural instincts, denying not only what he truly wanted but who he was deep down inside. Until one crazy night when he gave in to his desires...
         
Could these two polar opposites have more in common than even they realize?


 Excerpt:

           "Just what the hell do you think you're doing, Josh?"
            "Why Georgia, I have no idea what you're talking about."
            "Oh cut the crap, lawyer boy."
            Bringing them literally nose to nose, he whispered against her lips, "That's three, baby."
            "What are you doing? Someone is going to see us. Back up."
            Josh noted that she was telling him to back up, but her lips were moving the tiniest bit closer. He         could kiss her, right here, right now. And she would let him.
            But, if anyone saw them, she would hate him, and what they had would be over before it truly began.
            With more control than he thought he possessed, he backed his head away from hers and spun her away from him, until she was facing the bar. Removing temptation, while still allowing him the feel of her body.
            "Teasing me like that, Gia, is worth two... so that makes it five."
            It took her a second to respond, letting him know she was just as affected as he was. "Five what?"
            He leaned in and smiled against her ear. "Spankings. Every time you tease, torment, or simply act bitchy, you are going to earn yourself another."
            She leaned her body back against him, almost sagging into him as gooseflesh ran down her arms. That, combined with the little shiver she gave, told him all he needed to know.
            "You really like that idea, don't you baby?"
            "Fuck you, Josh." Her words were harsh, though her tone was raspy. The desire he heard in her tone shot straight to his cock.
            Grabbing her hip with one hand, he gripped the bar with the other, half convinced he would break the damn thing with his grip. "Here and now, or did you want to wait until we get back to my house?" He used his grip to grind himself against her ass.
            He realized just how carried away they'd gotten when instead of pulling away, she leaned into him with a breathy little moan.  
            "Ah, hell Gia." He pulled away from her taking a full step back before he did something colossally stupid. Taking a deep breath, he was trying to calm himself when the bartender showed back up, drinks in hand.
            Taking the beers, he asked Gia to grab Deb's martini and he turned to head back to the table. He stopped for just a second, and leaned in to say quietly, "Now we're up to seven, Gia. One for the 'fuck you' and one for the teasing. Just how badly are you going to behave the rest of the night?" 
* * * *
                        She was going to kill him. A long, slow, painful death. After she sexually tormented him for hours on end first, of course.
            If she was honest, she was actually more angry with herself, or at least with her body, than he was with him. She had almost given in and kissed him at the bar.
            Kissed him... hell, she knew it wouldn't have stopped there. At that particular moment, she had forgotten where they were, who they were with. She hadn't cared. The only thing she could think about was having him slip that long, hard shaft inside her and easing the ache.
            Josh leaned over, whispering in her ear, "If you don't want me to fuck you right here at this table, you had better get that goddamn look off your face."
            "Go to hell Josh," she all but yelled at him. Everyone at the table glanced her way, but since the two of them arguing was nothing new, they merely waited for his response. When he merely smirked at her, they all went back to chatting about whatever they'd been chatting about.
            She made the mistake of looking at him and he mouthed out, "That's thirteen, baby."
            She trusted him. Completely. At least in this. She knew he would absolutely break her heart in the end, but she knew she could trust him with her body. And quite frankly, judging by the look in his eye, he may not give her a choice. She knew he was deadly serious. She was going to get spanked tonight.

Review:
5 stars

Engaged Joshua Taylor is feeling like he is about to make a big mistake going through with the wedding.  Since the moment he met Gia eight years ago, they timing never seemed right nor did she express any interest in him.  Now Joshua is having erotic dreams about the women who stole his heart years ago and he is wondering if he should follow the carefully laid out plan his family has chosen for him or rebel and follow his heart.

Gia has been attracted to Josh from the second they met, but she knows they are completely opposite and would never work.  Gia is tattoos, pierced, and a free spirit while Josh is a straight laced lawyer.  What Gia does not anticipate is that there is a lot more to Josh hidden within and as a delicate relationship begins, Gia feels it is just a matter of time before he realizes they are not right for one another.

This was one of those stories that you savor.  Josh is intense, he is light hearted, and with Gia he is combustible.    What Josh doesn’t realize about Gia is she is vulnerable, he is laying it out there but she has conditions for exploring what they have that has Josh fumbling on how much to reveal about his feelings.   I would definitely reread and loved every minute of this electric story.



About the Author: 
I am often asked; who is Aubrianna Hunter?  And the truth is the answer isn't a simple one. Beyond being a dedicated wife and mother, I was raised by a Marine, and married into the Navy. 

Needless to say I can go toe to toe with the most sarcastic people you have met, and can dish insults and curse with the best of them.  I blurt wildly inappropriate things at precisely the moment when the room goes quiet, so much so that my co-author has nicknamed me Ted... Yes... After the bear in the movie. 

Recently my husband has replaced calling me crazy with calling me "Creative", but the tone he uses to do it makes me question his sincerity.  Though honestly, crazy is probably closer to reality.  I like my hectic life, in fact I thrive in the chaos and would have it no other way.
