"I was immediately drawn into Bone Deep by the emotional beginning. The sweetly sensual kiss shared by Kevin and Hailey in the rain had me anticipating a very interesting story, and Ms. Alan did not disappoint. The interaction and sexual chemistry between them made for one hot story. I enjoyed the spicy side to life Kevin introduces her to. The sex scenes had me fanning myself and quickly turning the page to see what came next. Ms. Alan added in just the right amount of personal drama to make the reader root for a great outcome. I am eager to read more by this talented author." Dawnie, Fallen Angel Reviews, 5 ANGELS ?Ms. Alan has created an emotion packed tale in Bone Deep. As a reader, I could completely sympathize with Hailey over the way David treated her as he ended their relationship, yet strung her along enough to hope for a reconciliation. I did find it hard to understand Hailey's devotion to him, especially as her relationship with Kevin begins to grow?yet this is often true with love and breakups, right? Kevin is the kind of man every woman dreams of (sexy, smart, and caring) and hopes to find but his blind trust in his friend irritated me. Kevin didn't trust in his own feelings concerning Hailey and puts their fragile relationship in a hard position. It's only when these two are truly honest with themselves and each other that they are able to discover what they truly want. Anyone who loves realistic characters, intense feelings and scorching sexual encounters, won't want to miss Bone Deep." Trang Black, Ecataromance, 4 STARS "I liked Kevin when he cleaned Hailey's bag off at the loss of his jacket. I loved him at the first kiss. That man is HOT! Sex appeal like that makes a woman melt, weather it's done to her-or she reads it. And he's health conscious too. Top marks across the board. I just wish it had been longer. You hate for the good ones like this to end." Melisa, Euroreviews, Excellent "Ms. Alan has constructed a well written tale of the emotional upheaval a young woman experiences when her hopes and dreams are unexpectedly destroyed. The sex between Hailey and Kevin is intense and passionate, and David, her ex-boyfriend is definitely a jerk that you love to hate. Her descriptions of Hailey fragile emotional state was well done and vivid, leaving me little doubt to the extent of the pain she was experiencing." Pam, My Book Cravings
He set the bags down on the pavement and straightened, taking a step closer to her. "What are you doing this weekend?"
Hailey shook her head. "Kevin, I'm sorry about earlier. You know what happened between David and me, I guess. You caught me in a weak moment. I should not have done that. Can we just please forget it ever happened?"
"Can you forget it? I have another idea." He closed the distance between them until his knees touched the front bumper. He rested his hands on the hood beside her hips, his lips inches from hers.
She leaned back, resting her body on both hands. "Kevin..."
He nodded, letting his eyes roam over her features. "I don't hear no."
The rain fell harder than it had earlier, but she seemed not to notice it at all as she stared at him. He put his hands over hers and moved even closer.
"Kevin," she said, her breath on his face. "Really, I..."
"That's not no either, Hailey." He moved even closer and put his hand on her neck, letting his thumb stroke her cheek.
She glanced down at her handbag then back into his eyes. "You've ruined your suit. That's about the nicest thing anybody has ever done for me."
"That kiss was quite a thank you," he said, forcing himself to concentrate on completing his plan. But this moment was surreal; if he didn't know better, he'd let himself fall for this woman. She was dangerous.
"I did want to thank you," she said.
"Thank me again," he whispered and waited. Let her come to me, he thought. He wouldn't force himself on her, but the way things were going, he wouldn't have to.
She leaned forward, closing the distance between them, and the softness of her lips sent a surge of heat through him. He needed no further encouragement as he slid his hands inside her jacket, then under her blouse, trailing his fingers over her back and pulling her closer.
Hailey's lips parted and her tongue tentatively touched his, her flavor mixing with the slippery coolness of the raindrops falling on them. He slid his hands upwards, pulling the jacket and blouse over her head. To his surprise, she not only allowed this, she lay back against the hood and wrapped her legs around him then pulled his body against hers.
Time stopped. The moment he'd envisioned since their first meeting stretched languorously, his hands on her skin, her fingers entwined in his hair. He tasted her neck, sliding his mouth slowly down to her breasts, unfastening the front closure, her breasts revealed to his waiting tongue. Taking one of her stiff nipples into his mouth, a low moan vibrated through her chest.
He wanted to take her here, in the pouring rain on the hood of this car, but he held his base desires in check. Actually having sex with her had not been part of the plan. Just getting her away from David, keeping her occupied; that's all he'd intended to do. But he wanted her. His pulsing cock strained against his slacks as he rolled her nipple around with his tongue.
He rose and looked at her face. Her eyes were closed as she held both of her arms over her head and arched her back upward. Every instinct inside him demanded he slip her skirt up her thighs and bury his face in her sweet pussy. He held onto his control by the thinnest of threads as he waited for her to open her eyes and look at him. He was not David; he wouldn't allow her to imagine that he was.
"Look at me, Hailey."
She opened her eyes and gazed at him through the trance of desire.
"Let me take you home." His voice sounded deep and raspy in his ears. He cleared his throat and tried again. "I want you in my bed." The words surprised him, but he didn't want to take them back.
