Unforgiven by Ruth Clampett
Publication Date: March 9th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Would you live a lie to hold onto the one you love?

Dean and Jason are best friends, like brothers since boyhood, now architecture students and college roommates. They’ve always had each other’s back, but when one walks in on the other with another man, everything changes. How do you explain to your best friend that he’s the one you’ve always wanted, that until now your life has been a lie?

Desperation and shame are two dirty words that run through Jason’s veins. He carries the scars from a wayward priest who stole his innocence and left him shattered. Meanwhile for years he’s watched Dean pursuing woman after woman, as his own heart slowly breaks.

When their world blows apart, they learn the powerful bond between them has more fire than either understood. Can two broken souls find the light in their darkness and come together to make a whole, or will sins of the past be forever unforgiven?

Excerpt

“What started all of this tonight? First I walk in on you having sex with yourself … then you grill me about having sex with Ramon … and then you suggest we have sex.” He rakes his fingers through his hair. “You’re making me crazy, dude. How much did you drink anyway?”

“Enough to loosen up and let my mind go places it normally doesn’t.”

His eyes light up. “I’ll say.”

“Hey, I’m really curious now. Will you let me fuck you? I promise I’ll follow what you want and take it slow.”

“Oh Jesus. Are you serious? So more experimenting, huh?”

“I think it’ll help me understand more about you.”

“You know when I said I needed more, this isn’t exactly what I meant. Don’t get me wrong, the idea of you fucking me is making me hard as hell, but it’ll just complicate things even more.”

“It doesn’t have to complicate things. Is it really so crazy to just want to make each other feel good?” I pause for a moment. “Come on, JJ.”

Lifting myself off the bed, I slowly approach him. As I get closer, I press my naked body into him so he’s up against the doorjamb, then I boldly rub my palm over his hard cock that’s trapped in his pajama bottoms.

I take a sharp breath because I’m shocked I’m even suggesting fucking my best friend. This is crazy, but feeling myself against him and imagining him naked under me is turning me on like a rocket with a sparking fuse.

He stands frozen, every part of him perfectly still, and then he gasps for air. “Please, Dean, please tell me you aren’t toying with me.”

I press my face into his neck. “I’m not toying with you, man. I don’t know what’s happening to me, but I have all these confusing feelings and my curiosity is through the roof. I’ve been so damn restless lately, and suddenly I have a feeling that if I turn a corner, I might find myself right where I need to be.”

Jason slides his arm along my lower back and curves his fingers around my side, then pulls me closer. “Don’t make me hope for something, and then crush me. I wouldn’t be able to take it. Our friendship means everything to me. It’s why I’m still standing and fighting for a future, when for a long time I wasn’t sure if I deserved one.”

I pull my head back so we can be face to face. It guts me to see so much pain in his eyes. Why the hell didn’t I see all of this before? He’s my best friend, dammit. I should have known he was hurting.

He shakes his head. “I can’t lose you, Dean. I can’t. Tread carefully, man.” His eyes are glazed like he’s fighting back tears.

I take his hand and guide him into my room. “You aren’t going to lose me. Maybe this whole thing of me learning your secrets happened to bring us closer.”

“I want that,” he whispers, and then more softly he murmurs, “I want you.”

FlirtySubs Exclusive ~ A Sexy Max POV from Work of Art -The Unveiling by Ruth Clampett

23411923 Flirty and Dirty Book Blog, along with our blog sisters, The SubClub Books, are thrilled to bring you this Exclusive, Sexy ~ POV from Maxfield Caswell of Work of Art – The Unveiling.

Enjoy!

Max POV

As I drag the brush dripping with crimson paint across the blank canvas I keep glancing over to the canvas on my right. I keep going back to this last work, layering more paint, more color but I’m still furious because it isn’t right. I hate it. At this very second I hate everything about it, and I take my palette and hurl it at the travesty pretending to be a painting.

“Worthless piece of shit!”

The violent act scars the canvas surface with blotches of random color. The initial satisfaction of letting out my rage is short lived. What in the hell is wrong with me?

If Ava were here she would soothe me and quiet the ugly noise in my head. I’ve ached for her since Santa Fe and suddenly not having her with me is unbearable. I don’t give a fuck about the late hour or the number of miles between us. I grab my stuff, get in my car and fire up the engine. I need to get to her.

I’m almost to Ava’s house when I realize that showing up in the middle of the night without warning might not be a good idea so I pick up my phone.

Her sleepy voice is the best sound. “Hey, handsome. What’s up?”

The words tumble out of me, probably not making any sense at all until she says exactly what I need to hear.

“Come over. I’ll be here waiting.”

When I’m finally on her couch she’s my port in a storm, touching me, grounding me, and reminding me how big love can be.

Hey eyes light up when I open my bag and give her the books I bought for her project. I’ll buy her books every day just to see that sweet smile.

“Max, what made you think to get me these?”

Doesn’t she understand that I’d do anything for her? 

I peel away all the darkness so she can look in my heart. “Don’t you realize that I’m always thinking about you, and want to help you? I want your happiness more than my own now. I fucking love you, Ava.”

Her face is full of emotion, as she sighs and crawls over my thighs. I ascend to my kind of heaven when she straddles me. The way she tenderly cups my face with her hands before she kisses me douses my flames of anxiety. Now a different kind of fire’s lit and I’m burning.

I run my hands over her silky skin as she sinks onto my lap where I’m hard for her. When I part her satin robe open and she’s gloriously naked I’m overcome with raw desire.

She undoes my jeans and I help her. When her hand is finally gripping my cock she licks her lip, her expression brimming with lust as she whispers, “Do you know how good it feels when you’re inside me?”

If you tell me Ava, I may never leave.

She takes a deep breath as she lifts her hips and hovers over me.

“Come on, baby,” I whisper, my eyes focused where she’s pressed against me.

We both moan as she sinks down until I’m completely inside of her.

I take a sharp breath, close my eyes, and thank the gods for this otherworldly woman who can both bring me to my knees and make me fly.

She rocks her hips slowly, my head falls back, but my gaze never breaks away from hers. She knows she owns me as she rises and falls over my world.

I love her soft until she begs for hard, watching her eyes widen and feeling her heart pound under my fingertips. My hands slide down to cup her ass as I guide us to the point where things get wild.

With each hard swivel of her hips I’m more stirred up.

“Like this?” She asks her skin damp, her hair tangled wisps around her face.

Oh yeah, just like this baby. Fuck me forever.

“…this is all I need.”

Excerpt red

 

“Okay,” I say to Max unsteadily as we lean into the printing press. “We start with the ink.” I take his right hand and place it over mine, take the stick and gently stir the paint in the can. The violet swirls, and I lift the wet stick and drip it across the screen.

I try to focus but his touch and the heat from his body permeate my senses.

Next, I pick up the squeegee, and we complete the motion of dragging the paint across the printing screen. But it’s awkward with his hand on only one side of the squeegee. As I lift the screen, he steps around and removes the print and reloads silently.

When he returns, he steps directly behind me, and since he’s taller and larger than me, he curls around me and reaches everything easily.

He slides both of his hands on top of mine.

I can hardly breathe I’m so electrified. Swirl, lift, stroke…His breath is hot against my neck.

We grip the squeegee, slide, pause, drag back with more force, lift.

I close my eyes so I can focus on his scent and the feeling of his arms

wrapped around me.

He pauses before he steps away to switch the paper.

When he returns, he steps even closer so that when we extend ourselves across the print, he presses against me.

I gasp. All I can focus on is his arousal pressing against me. I’ve never wanted anyone this much.

By the third pass on the printing press, I’m trembling, and when he presses against me, I press my ass back into him, imagining him inside of me.

“Ava,” he moans.

As much as I want to turn around and face him, I don’t want to stop. I don’t want this moment to end.

“Again,” he groans.

This time, as I slide the squeegee up, he lets go, slides his hands up my arms and trails them down my sides. All the while, his lower body is firmly pressed against me. I could cry it feels so good to have him touch me in ways I never thought he would. I slowly grind my ass against him. His hands move down to my hips, and his fingers grasp my curves, pulling me closer.

I’m surprised he has the focus to change the paper, but he doesn’t reach around to help me with the screen this time. Instead, his hands return to my hips as our bodies press together, and he run his hands down the sides of my thighs and back up. He slips his hands under my tank, moving up my sides, across my ribs, and just skimming the edge of my bra. My nipples harden, aching for his touch, and my breaths are quick and short.

I drop my head and moan, “Max.”

“I know, baby, I know,” he whispers, pressing his lips in my hair at the nape of my neck. He steps away again and replaces the paper quickly.

“Again, Ava, for me.” He brushes his cheek softly above my ear and presses into me a little harder.

I try to concentrate on the trail of violet left from my stroke, but as I push up, his hands part. One slides down over my jeans, between my legs, and presses firmly against my sex. I drop the squeegee and grab the edge of the table, just as his other hand snakes under my shirt and pulls my bra down to cup my naked breast.

My breath catches in my throat as I revel in every sensation.

His fingers gently tease my nipple, and he kisses the side of my neck up to my ear.

I moan as the room spins, and I try to make sense of what’s happening as I come undone. The room is hazy with the softest highlights and shadows. I wonder if this is a dream.

Excerpt #1

He takes a step back and pushes his sleeves up his sculpted arms.
My eyes wander up from his bare feet, over his worn jeans, his broad
shoulders and handsome face. He’s over six feet of masculine perfection and distracting in every way. A breeze from the ocean hits him, and he turns his face sideways. The sinking sun backlights his perfect silhouette.
This view of him engulfs me. I feel doused in flames and what I want at this very moment has nothing to do with writing. I’m burning for him. I desperately desire to be up on that deck wrapped around Max with the ocean breeze at my back. I don’t want to be his savior nor his biographer, I just want to consume him, and I hate myself…knowing that doesn’t make me any better than his art groupies.
“Okay, I’ll go to the bookstore!” I say, exasperated.
Max smiles happily and offers a wave as he backs away from the car.
He thinks he’s won, but this game hasn’t even begun.

Excerpt #2

We’re a wall of passion, and all the longing and unfulfilled desire now burns brightly between us. It’s overwhelming and stronger than I could’ve imagined…
From this moment on, I’ll never trust my instincts because I completely
Underestimated this man’s attraction to me. I’ve never felt so desirable, so beautiful…so completely wanted in a man’s eyes.
I moan as the room spins, and I try to make sense of what’s happening as I come undone. The room is hazy with the softest highlights and shadows. I wonder if this is a dream. There’s only one way to know for sure. I take a deep breath, take a step to the side, straighten my shirt and slowly turn to face him…

Work of Art by Ruth Clampett ~NEW REVIEW~

Work of Art (The Inspiration, #1)Work of Art by Ruth Clampett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

RELEASE DATE: November 4, 2014

⭐️⭐️⭐️Work of Art by Ruth Clampett…WOW! Nothing like I expected it to be!⭐️⭐️⭐️

I NEED book 2…STAT!!! What is it about eccentric artists?!?! You definitely do not want to miss out on this read.

Work of Art sucked me in right away. Ruth Clampett blew me away with her writing style…So much attention to detail without making the story drag. Ms. Clampett painted a beautiful story and made me feel like I was a part of it. The art shows, the galleries, all of it… I felt I was right there.

The characters in Work of Art are fabulous. I loved Ava, I did. A strong young woman who knows what she wants… and what she shouldn’t want. I could relate to her character on so many levels as I think many readers will. As I got further into Work of Art, I realized that Max was nothing like I thought he would be. There is so much depth to this character. I couldn’t help but fall for him and his smooth and sexy talking, the man knows how and what to say to make the ladies swoon 😉 But much like Ava, I’m torn. There is no denying the electrifying chemistry or connection between these two characters but sometimes that isn’t enough…. Is it? Especially when one of you is dealing with demons. Then there’s Jonathan. Please, please, please tell me we get more Jonathan in the next book! I swear this man melted the panties right off of me! Confident, worldly and a smooth sexy talker…Hot damn this man is HOT! All of the supporting characters are equally brilliantly written. This story would not have been the same without them all.

Work of Art is full of steamy sexual tension and I gotta say that I wasn’t expecting how clenchingly HOT this tension would be! Ms. Clampett definitely knows her hot and schmexy!! But, it’s also filled with the perfect amount of angst. Not enough to drive me to drink, but enough that helped set the mood and make it believable. Work of Art isn’t all sexy tension and angst. There is also just the right amount of humour to lighten the mood.

I warn you now that Work of Art has a cliffhanger. An, “OMG I need more NOW!!” kind of cliffhanger! I can’t wait to see where Ms. Clampett takes this story!!!

If you are looking for a read to pull you into its pages with original story, fabulously developed characters, and a healthy does of sexy angst… Look no further! Work of Art by Ruth Clampett should be your next read.  Nic
