Neither is prepared for what happens next, though, as the two Dominants find themselves not only battling each other, but their own demons as well. Will they be able to save their friendship before the reality of the three ends the fantasy forever?

Soft lips moved across the back of her neck, making her whimper. That spot was such a turn-on to her. As his mouth trailed along the line of her neck, her pulse beat wildly. His teeth grazed the throbbing pulse point in her neck before he sank them down into it. Another moan escaped her lips, but this time he swallowed the sounds of it as he turned her head, fusing his mouth to hers.
      Xavier was a fantastic kisser, and if that particular skill was any indication of others he possessed, he’d have to be phenomenal in bed. Cali leaned further back against his chest, wrapping what part of her arms she could around his neck to keep herself upright. His hands snaked around her body, palming her breasts and kneading her aching flesh.
“A perfect fit,” he rasped, nipping her earlobe. She had no time to react before his hands traveled higher so he could slip his fingers beneath the thin spaghetti straps on her dress. Dropping her arms to her sides allowed Xavier to slide the material down her limbs. With her dress now resting just above her hips, Cali brought her hands back up to where they had been and closed her eyes.
      He returned to kissing her leisurely, as if he had all the time in the world to strip her naked and fuck her. Just when she thought he would continue with this excruciatingly slow pace all night, he captured one of her exposed nipples between his teeth. Moaning against his lips, her eyes flew open to find Xavier still kissing her. How could that be? If his mouth was on hers then who was currently suckling on her nipple? The man was good, but not that good.
      Tensing, she immediately pulled her mouth away, looking down her body to find a pair of arctic blue eyes staring directly up at her. It was the man she’d seen from her balcony. What the hell is he doing here?
      Releasing her nipple from his mouth with a wet pop, he straightened, raising himself to full height. She began to feel surrounded and dwarfed by these two men. There was just so much male in the room. Her first instinct was to cover her breasts, which she quickly did, earning a scowl from the blond stranger.
      “Calista, I’d like you to meet Zane. Z for short.”
      Cali looked back and forth at both men, taking a few steps sideways to collect her thoughts. She had no idea what was going on, but the night took on an alarming note. Fighting back a small panic attack, she gauged the distance to the door.
      Xavier stepped toward her, tipping her chin up with his long fingers. “Don’t go, belleza.” His eyes were completely mesmerizing, as was his voice. She felt her body’s reaction to him in every pulse of her clit.
      “I-I don’t understand. I…” she stammered, her voice drifting off. The two of them acted as if they did this little routine together often. As if encroaching on the other man’s territory, however temporary, was the most natural thing in the world. She was aware there were men who liked to share women. Granted, she’d never met anyone like that, but she’d heard enough about them from friends like Emily.
      Already, she could imagine her best friend’s response to this situation. If Emily even believed her to begin with. Cali was having a difficult time taking it all in.
      “Have you ever been with two men at the same time?”
      Cali’s head spun around as Zane spoke. His voice was as heavily accented as his counterpart, though he didn’t sound or look Spanish. Her eyes were drawn to his chest and she couldn’t help but stare at the impressive expanse of muscle. To meet one perfect male was luck, but two was unbelievable. It was even more unbelievable that they both wanted her.
       Unable to speak, she merely shook her head in response.
      “Together we can bring you a great deal of pleasure, Calista.”
      While he spoke, his hand reached out to gently stroke her arm. His touch was a direct contradiction to the heated intentions she could see in his gaze. She didn’t have a lot of experience in this area, but Cali could recognize desire when she saw it.
      Remembering back to the night before, she recalled being drawn to Zane. From the moment she’d caught him staring at her, there had been a pull toward him. Her dreams last night had been filled with those visions. She’d even entertained fantasies about him all afternoon. That was until she had met Xavier.
      Turning toward Xavier, she knew he could sense her confusion, but he seemed content to let her make up her own mind. He obviously didn’t want to pressure her into making a decision.
      The sensation of Zane’s thumb brushing over her knuckles jolted her mind back to the lingering question. No, she’d never been with two men at the same time. Could she really do something like that now? When hoping to find someone to pass some time with, never did she imagine it would include two men.
      The few sexual encounters Cali had had before could never be considered wanton. In fact, they were more instructional in nature. She would touch her partners where they wanted her to touch, and they would do the same to her in return. Both parties would find satisfaction and the man would then promise to call. Cali would walk away knowing that her phone would never ring, but it was okay. She had a feeling that tonight would indeed qualify as wanton and she would more than likely regret it for the rest of her life if she chose to leave.
      “We will make you feel all the things you’ve ever read about or dreamed,” Zane said, bringing her hand to his lips and placing a kiss in her palm. “All you have to do is trust us. We won’t hurt you…” He paused and then chuckled. “Unless you beg us nicely to do so.”
      Her eyes widened at the last part and she worried her bottom lip with her teeth. She couldn’t believe she was even considering what was being offered. Zane continued.
      “We’ll worship every inch of your gorgeous body and not a single freckle will be left untouched. By the time we’re finished, you will…”
      He stopped, and Cali fought to make her tongue work. “I will what?”
      Xavier chose that moment to step behind her until she was sandwiched once more between the two irresistible men. He then finished his friend’s sentence for him. “By the time we’re finished, you’ll know what it feels like to be fucked, utterly and completely.”

How to Deal by TM Smith


Welcome to the How to Deal Audiobook tour, hosted by TTC Books and more.

How to Deal is the 3rd book in the All Cocks Stories and is now available in Audiobook format in addition to E-book and Print


Jon Brennan comes from a long line of men in uniform; all born and bred to both bleed and wear blue. His family and the majority of his co-workers support him every step of the way, so he doesn’t need to hide the fact that he prefers men over women. Between the job and his larger than life, loud and rowdy half Irish, half Italian family, there isn’t much time for dating, much less finding a guy who can deal with the stress and demands placed on the shoulders of an NYPD detective.
Kory White is cocky and abrasive with most people, but it is all a facade he hides behind to keep his heart safe. As a child, Kory lost his mother to an act of violence. Soon after, he and his baby sister Kassandra were separated by the system. Kassandra was immediately adopted, but Kory spent the next 10 years cycling through foster homes before moving to the Big Apple. In an effort to keep everyone at a distance, Kory has meticulously built himself an alter ego: Hayden Cox, All Cocks cockiest model.
These two strong-willed men definitely prove opposites do attract. Both are stubborn and hard headed to a fault, Kory more so than Jon. But Jon is used to being in control, the one calling the shots, and Kory fights him at every turn. Just when it seems they have found a way to navigate the unchartered territory that is love, tragedy knocks on Kory’s door yet again. Volatile and strong, even in the face of adversity, both men refuse to give up on each other – or their love.

Over the Edge by Meredith Wild

Over The Edge by Meredith Wild

Genre: Contemporary Romance

********AVAILABLE NOW********


“An intriguing, sexy story about unexpected love and balancing others’ expectations against your heart”
NYT Bestselling Author Shayla Black
“The third book in Wild’s Bridge series is a fantastic read, certain to woo new readers and satiate her returning fans. Over the Edge checks off all the boxes: it’s emotional, intense and extremely sexy. Wild taps into an often thought of as taboo fantasy — one woman sharing two men — and makes it a possibility, allowing the reader to live vicariously through the main character. While this is part of the Bridge series, it’s also effective as a standalone novel.”
RT Book Reviews
Olivia Bridge has always been a good girl—good grades, good friends, and a good job that her wealthy parents handed her. Desperate to carve out a life that is truly hers, Liv walks away from it all and takes on the challenge of helping her brothers open a chain of fitness centers in New York City. Just as she’s beginning to find her footing in a new place, she’s caught between two men who couldn’t be more determined to turn all her goodness inside out.
Will Donovan has the capital to make the Bridge brothers’ entrepreneurial dreams a reality. Taking their uptight sister to bed seems a reasonable perk for the risk. Liv is the smartest, sexiest prude Will’s ever met, and he can’t wait to break her down.
Life is too short for Ian Savo to play by anyone’s rules. Sharing women with his friend isn’t anything new, so when Will introduces him to Liv, he can’t wait to get a taste. But falling for the same girl, or falling at all, was never in the plans…
The Bridge Series follows Cameron, Darren, and Olivia Bridge, three siblings living in New York City. Desperate to break away from the crushing expectations of their wealthy and privileged and equally broken family, they carve out a new path together. But can they find real love along the way?
Each book follows a different sibling’s journey and can be read as a standalone.

“Who is he?” Wart asked.
“Dunno. He’s an elf, though, which is so cool.” They hoisted the man up, and once they were out of Hulgetta’s lair and down at the great hall, Prin resumed. “She hands me a list this morning with coordinates on it for the green door. Says pick any one of these and bring back a subject.”
Carry, carry, carry. She wished they had something to drag him on. Oi, he was heavy.
“Anyone on the list,” Wart said. “Then why him?”
“Wart, you have no idea. For a minute I didn’t think I could pull it off.” She told Wart about the smoke demon, the monster in the ice cave. “Not that I saw it, but I saw its poo, and I left as fast as possible. Ugh!” She shuddered, remembering the slick ramp heading almost straight down and the eerie silence, broken only by the noise of cracking bluish ice. There had been a giant pile of human bones next to the spore of whatever it was that lived in that cave. “I mean, I had no weapons, just a sleep spell. I wasn’t going to risk it, you know?”
“But you found him.”
“Yes. At last. And! Bonus points—he has pointy ears. Huzzah!”
Whatever she did, her apprentice vow spelled out as clearly as possible, that she was not to disappoint her mistress in any of her commands. Wart knew that. Wart, when enticed to speak candidly about previous apprentices, said that they disappeared after they had invariably disappointed their mistress. Prin assumed they probably went back through the green door from whence they came. Wart didn’t seem so sure, but wasn’t about to speculate, either.
It had become a rather sinister question mark hanging over Prin’s head ever since. She tried not to think about what would have happened if she hadn’t succeeded today. Now she was almost high with relief.
“What’s she going to do with him?” Wart asked.
“Ah, Hulgetta. Secrets shrouded in mystery, blah, blah, blah.”
Wart gave her a peculiar look with her big dark eyes. She often kept her thoughts to herself, but Prin knew that behind that modest demeanor was a needle-sharp brain.
“What? Cough it up.”
“You must have some idea.”
“Nope. Not a clue. Can’t read the book she’s been studying up on.”
They continued dragging the gorgeous elf along until they reached a spot where the stones were a bit less clammy. Prin was ready to keep going, but Wart held up a hand, panting, so Prin waited. While biding her time she be-spelled herself by staring down into the elf’s face.
“Are all elves this gorgeous?” she asked.
“I’ve never seen an elf before. I’m not sure.” Yet the way Wart was staring at him didn’t seem admiring. She looked like she was listening to a sad song.
“Okay, Wart, cough it up. You think Hulgetta means to harm him?”
Wart looked at her with a certain quirk to her mouth which meant yes. This was bad, very bad. She had to get someone else from the list. It had been terrifying enough to go through the green door into whatever place it opened onto by day. Except for him, all the critters on the other side reeked of danger. The idea of starting to go through that list and open the door at night? She shuddered hard.
“Is this a, you know, gut feeling, or have you seen Hulgetta do something bad to other people before?”
Wart looked at her and wouldn’t speak. Just gave her those giant haunted brown eyes.
Prin compressed her lips. Hulgetta said jump, she asked how high. Hulgetta said put him in the cell, so he was going in the cell.
Still she hesitated.
“I can’t put him back.”
Wart was silent.
“What would I tell Hulgetta?” Look what her mistress had done for her. Taught her magic. Fed and clothed her well—better than the maids, even. She’d recited a vow where she pledged her loyalty and obedience. Shit.
Prin gathered her arms under his chest and heaved. The crumbling staircase climbed up along the wall, twisting around without any railing until it ended abruptly in a small landing with an arched wooden door. Bracing herself and taking a big breath, Prin lifted his upper body as high as she could and started up the steps. Wart followed behind. Though the kitchen maid did her best, Prin had to do most of the heavy lifting. After almost a year of chopping firewood and hauling buckets she was pretty strong. Still.
“No one. Talks about. How much grunt work goes into magic,” she said through gritted teeth.
“Poor you,” Wart responded, panting and slipping on the narrow stairs.
Once they were in the cell, they went over to the wooden pallet that ran from wall to wall almost three feet off the ground. Prin’s old mattress sat on the pallet, stuffed with itchy straw. They dumped him on it. A certain cruel sensuality about his mouth added a touch of sin to his celestial features. She put her palm up to his cheek. It was cool and clammy. He turned his face into the warmth of her skin and his lips touched her palm. The buzz of energy inside her picked up a few notches.
She forced herself to slide her hand away, when what she really wanted was to dig her hands into his rich auburn hair and climb right on top of him. No, her brain said. Yes! her body cried.
She began stripping off the little jacket he wore. It had sleeves that laced up at the elbows and shoulders. Then she began rolling up his shirt, inhaling the male scent of him, like some unknown mountain herb, sharp and clean.
“This is a bad idea,” Wart commented.
“Maybe he’s not so harmless. I mean, he did zap me,” she said.
“Really. Before you kidnapped him. The nerve.”
“Not sure what he did. Kind of felt like a spell forming. Only this was hard and sudden.” Her wrists still hurt from it. Her body, meanwhile, rippled with energy. She wanted to jump out of her skin.
“Well, he’s an elf,” Wart said.
“So they’re magic and all.”
“Right.” She paused one more time to look down at him as he lay on the pallet. If she let him go, what would she say to Hulgetta? Catch and release only, mistress. Sorry. She quaked just thinking the words. She picked up the gold manacle but hesitated. There was no time to think. If they were going to do this, they had to get him out quickly. And then? And then? She couldn’t think of any way she could switch him out without Hulgetta knowing.
She made up her mind. “I can’t do it. I can’t let him go.” She clapped the gold manacle onto his wrist, then bundled up his boots, jacket, and shirt into her arms.
Wart gave a cry of alarm and backed into the corner as Hulgetta, already at the top of the stairs, stormed inside.
Holy marbles. Her innards began to liquefy a little. Looking over at Wart’s expression she knew they both looked guilty as sin.
