From Rags by Suzanne Wright
Published March 4th 2012 by Suzanne Wright
About the Book: There has only been three people in Jaxxon Carter's life who truly mattered to her. Her mum, who committed suicide. Her sister, who she hasn’t seen since her teens. And Connor McKenzie, who disappeared from her life the same day he left their foster home. The hardest part of that was that he never completely left her life because she was forever seeing him on T.V. or in magazines as a Formula One Driver. But Jaxxon refuses to live a ‘woe is me’ life, even in spite of living alone in her one-roomed flat and being expected to survive on a ridiculously low income. Then one night she is offered a modelling job and before she knows it she has been catapulted to the peak of success, gaining fame, fortune and security. Oh and a stalker.
Connor McKenzie is busy trying to shake off his crazy ex-girlfriend – another woman who thought she could get around his no marriage rule – when he sees Jaxxon on the cover of a magazine. Remembering how close they had once been, he’s shocked when she doesn’t respond to his attempts to contact her and then acts indifferently to him when they meet. But Connor can’t let it go. The only reason he had kept his hands off her ten years ago was that she had been younger than him. Now that they’re adults, he isn’t prepared to allow anything – not even Jaxxon – to stop him from having her.
Warning: This novel contains a bitchy female who curses like a sailor, a persistent alpha male who doesn’t understand the word ‘no’, and explicit hot sex in some very public places.
I must admitt, this self-published story was not on my radar until I saw the updates from a friend on Goodreads reading this. Let me tell you, it sounds hot from the status updates! Here's a sample:
"I know you're pissed with me, Jaxx. But you don't really want me to go. What you want is for me to drive as deep inside you as I can and f*&k you." HOLY HALE was my response to that!! I love the fact that these two have a past and really know each other. Jaxx is ticked that she's never heard from Connor all these years, so I'm sure it's going to provide all kinds of snarky banter and HOT sexual tension. I can't wait. Plus it's a steal of a deal for $1.49 on Amazon right now!
Wow! Rachel you have definitely found a umm spicey book LOL! I haven't seen this one around but I am sure glad that you brought it to my attention! It looks like a lot of fun and right up my alley! I am all about the alpha male and Connor sounds like he can definitely hold his own against a snarky Jaxx. Great find Rachel! *goes to Amazon*
