Today Lisa M. Owens is here offering a steamy excerpt from her book, If Only. The book has an interesting premise … can you get a do-over? If you did, what would you do? Take a look:
What would you do if you had the opportunity to go back and relive your greatest mistake?
Five years ago, Bree Sexton walked out on her fiancé and into the arms of a charming and handsome stranger. She has regretted her decision ever since. Instead of a fairy-tale marriage, her “prince” shattered her dreams and her spirit with physical violence and emotional cruelty she barely escaped.
She then mysteriously wakes up in bed with the fiancé she loved and left, the life she’d dreamed of now a reality, until her cruel ex-husband reappears to destroy her new life. But what is real, and what is make-believe? Is she really getting the chance she has always dreamed of? And when it is all said and done, will she finally end up with the man she has always regretted leaving? Or will she wake up to discover herself alone?
His dark head pressed against the flat plane of her abdomen, resting against her body. Then he began to rain soft kisses down the expanse of her bare stomach.
Scott had one hand caressing each of her thighs. He gazed up at her with a devilish glint in his brown eyes before he lowered his dark head to her triangle of curls. His tongue delved deep into her moistness, savoring the sweetness of her nectar. He began to suckle her, gently at first, weaving his tongue in and out of her body in a slow repetitive motion.
Bree groaned beneath him, writhing in agony at the erotic sensation of his tongue probing the deep core of her womanhood.
His wicked tongue then began to taste her sensitive flesh with an intense urgency, causing Bree to swear she could take no more of this exquisite torture.
Her slender legs wrapped around his chiseled frame, her body pressed tightly against his. She could feel his pulsating manhood straining against the material of his jeans.
Bree seemed to explode, her body shuddering its release. She could feel herself falling, her body spiraling out of control. “Scott, oh Scott!” she cried out as the spasms began to subside.
She looked up at her husband as she struggled to catch her breath, which was coming in short pants. Her green eyes were still glazed with passion when she gave him a wicked grin. She held up a single finger, gesturing for him to come to her. She reached for him, grabbing him by the neck and pulling his body against hers. She rolled over on top of him, laughing at the surprised look on his face.
“It’s your turn,” she murmured against his mouth as she covered his lips with hers. Her fingertips pressed roughly against the strained fabric of his jeans, fondling him gently. She wound her fingers through the denim loops, pulling the fabric down the long length of his muscular legs. Bree leaned over her husband’s toned physique, her mouth pressing against his throbbing manhood, dampening the material of his briefs. She grinned at the sound of Scott’s tortured groan. He reached for her, but she wasn’t going to let him off that easily. She intended to make him squirm.
Obviously, Scott had reached his limit. He grabbed her and pressed her to him, his tongue entwining with hers. Bree laughed into his open mouth as she reached for the waistband of his briefs and pulled them down.
“Open sesame,” he murmured with a mischievous grin as he cupped her thighs with his strong hands and spread her legs apart. She raised her hips to accommodate him, their bodies merging together as one. Her womanly core was moist and ready for him, and he guided himself into her gently.
About the Author
The writing bug bit Lisa M. Owens at an early age; she was writing short stories and poetry by the age of seven. At the age of eight, she entered a writing contest at her elementary school. About fifty books were written, but Lisa was one of the thirteen writers chosen who received a certificate and the chance to meet Oklahoma writer Sandy Miller.
A former victim of domestic violence herself, Lisa worked at the courthouse for over seven years. Almost three of those years she worked on the Marriage License/Protective Order desk. She helped women file protective orders and worked closely with the staff and counselors at DVIS.
Frustrated with books that merely gloss over the subject of domestic violence, Lisa wanted to write a book that told the entire story. Her dream is for her words to help give someone the courage to leave an abusive relationship.
She resides in Oklahoma and has two children. This is her first published novel, and she is currently working on the next novel of her If Only series.
