Razorblades & Band-aids

Standard

I step forward and her eyes snap open. She puts a hand up, stopping me.

“You’re like a razorblade, Jackson. And I’m not thick-skinned enough to survive you.” Tears rest at the corners of her eyes.

Fuck!

“I’m sorry,” I blurt. The words are simple, but I’ve never meant anything more in my entire fucking life.

“Sorry is just a word.” She shrugs and the movement jars one tear loose. “It’s like a band-aid with you.”

My eyes track the tear trailing over her smooth, porcelain cheek, until it drips from her jaw. My vision blurs.

“Take care of yourself.”

I blink, clearing the blur when tears escape.

Two steps forward is as far as I get before she stops me with a look and turns, pushing by onlookers.

Of its own accord, my body propels forward, needing to go after her.

Four hands press against my chest. I refocus on my surroundings, finding Gemma and Julia pushing against me.

“Let her go,” Gemma says softly.

“I don’t think I can.” A humorless laugh escapes me.

HITS

HITS (Hidden in the Stars) (a Falling Stars novel Book 2)
*Standalone*

Jackson “Jack” Shaw is the lead rhythm guitarist for the chart topping rock band The Forgotten.  He’s also the step-brother of their lead singer, Christopher Mason. Jack’s had his heart shredded by a girl he thought was The One. Drowning his heartache in alcohol, women, and drugs, Jack hides his heart in a sea of fellow stars.

That is, until he meets Miz Liz in a burlesque club hidden in East L.A. A woman who’s perfected the art of teasing and ensnaring her audience with leather, lace, satin, and a voice like a siren’s call.  She turns on all the right body parts, but also rejuvenates one particular muscle in his chest that Jack was sure he could keep hidden.

Eliza Campbell is a single mother who will do whatever it takes to support her family.  Even if that means giving up on the dreams she’s had since she was a child. Stubbornly independent at times, Liza’s carefully scheduled days and plans aren’t ready for almost seven feet of dirty, rocking, tattoo covered Jackson Shaw.  But then again, one night won’t change everything.

Jackson’s an addict, and just one taste puts him back in the precarious position of falling in love with a woman who’s mastered the art of ensnaring and teasing.

Xavier in the Closet

Standard

Xavier in the Closet
(Outtake from HITS)

Copyright Sadie Grubor, Author 2016.
*unedited outtake*
*Outtake is best if you read HITS (Hidden in the Stars – book 2 in The Falling Stars Series)

Sidra (Sid) Campbell POV

His heat fills my back and I pause, gripping the doorknob to the hidden door.

“Can I get some space, Gandalf the Red?” Jesus, this guy has been up my ass all night, and not in a good way.

“I’m just being helpful,” he responds, holding the curtain back from the hidden door.

“Mmhmm,” I mutter, not buying his innocent guy act.

Biting back a small grin, I yank open the door to backstage forcefully, making sure to land my elbow into his ribs.

Ha! Take that you oversized pubic hair covered twat-block.

That’s for ruining the killer game I’d been running on the hot as hell bartender.

I’d been just a moment away from closing a one-night-in-Sid-party with the sexy blond guy. But no, Xavier ruined it by moving in and standing behind me until the drink slinger ran off.

Then he thought by telling me I was sexy when pissed off would improve my sour mood and improve my opinion of his Cousin It on steroids ass.

So, the sound of his painful gasp warms my body with elation.

 

x

Xavier Stone (inspiration)

“Damn, woman. I’m all for rough, but at least ask my safe word first,” he coughs out.

 

Why does he have to say that shit and make me think about tying him down to have my dirty way with him? I don’t even like the annoying bastard, but it’s been weeks without a manmade orgasm. My wrist gives a little twinge, reminding me of how much the alone time affects my carpal tunnel.

Growling in frustration, I walk faster through the door to backstage.

Gorgeous, half naked women walk around backstage.  They talk and help loosen and unzip articles of clothing before disappearing into the privacy of dressing areas. Stage crew members roll up wires and carry equipment.

“Sid,” one of the main performers, Miss Nikel, calls out.

Miss Nikle

Miss Nikel (inspiration)

 

Giving a lift of my chin, I join her small group of barely dressed dancers.

Miss Nikel’s makeup is still flawless. Perfectly arched brows over almond shaped eyes and the dark red stain of her symmetrical lips compliment her thin face.

“What I wouldn’t give for your tits,” Miss Nikel says on a sigh.

Her glitter splattered hands come up and air cup my chest.

“Go ahead.” I press my chest out in invitation.

Palms flat on my chest, she squeezes, her chilly fingertips touching the bare skin exposed by my V-neck shirt.

“If you need a second opinion,” his voice penetrates the sanctuary of the small group, “I can assure you that I am very,” the heat of his body fills my back again, “very thorough.”

Miss Nikel releases my boobs, bringing a hand up to fan herself.

“Who might you be?” She drops her fan hand, running the fingers over her deep cleavage. The black corset she wears emphasizes her slender waist and pushes her tits up high.

“A walking, annoying, oversized hair piece,” I answer for him and grin.

“Well, I’m disappointingly hair free at the moment,” Miss Nikel flirts, her eyes focused on the beast at my back.

Raising a brow, I tilt my head and give a nod. Well played.

The two other dancers in the group giggle.  Wearing large grins, they excuse themselves into a changing room.

Deciding to follow their example, I say, “I’ll just let you two—”

His hand around my bicep halts my steps and draws my eyes to his touch.

The heat of his hand on my bare skin spreads over my skin, making me feel flush and off kilter.

“I’m sure it will grow back,” he says to Miss Nikel.

Xavier’s response stuns me. He’s been scamming on me half the night, and he’s going to turn down the gorgeous burlesque dancer. I’m so shocked, I don’t realize he’s pulled me away until we’re well separated from the bustle of bodies.

Digging my heels into the floor, I pull my arm from his grip.

“Stop dragging me around,” I snap.

His large body spins with a grace I didn’t think someone his size would have. Two steps toward me and I begin my retreat. My back hits a door, the knob digging into my left ass cheek.

Xavier moves in leaving little space between us.

“I think we got off on the wrong foot,” he says, caging me in with his arms.

Plastering a super sweet and fake smile on my face, I say, “I think if you don’t want to find out what your balls taste like, you need to back the fuck off me, Ginger Beard.”

Instead of moving, he grins.

“Or we could just introduce our belly buttons and see what happens from there,” he offers, his grin widening.

Oh, that’s it!

Relaxing against the wood at my back, I lick my bottom lip.

His eyes drop to my mouth, mimicking the action.

Fuck that’s hot.

Mentally shaking off the hotness vibes he’s throwing down, I slip my left hand behind me and grip the knob.  With my right, I reach out and flatten it against his stomach.  The muscle bunches beneath my hand.

He’s so solid and warm, and I wonder how hard other places are. I bet firm muscle leads down to a gloriously hard—.  Damn it, no.

Sliding my palm up his chest, I lightly push against his right pectoral.

For a moment, he doesn’t budge. I lean my body close enough that my breasts press against his chest.  He gets the hint and inches back. I twist the knob and start pulling open the door.

Looking over my shoulder I find a half filled closet. The light catches on two metal cuffs hanging on the wall and an idea forms.

With the door open, I bring both my hands to his waist. Gaining control of the situation, I maneuver him and back him into the closet.

His large hands grip my hips sending a shock of heat straight to my pussy. She thinks we are about to finally get back in the cock riding rodeo, instantly sending out signals to my clit like it’s Morse fucking Code.

Throb, throb, pulse, clench = I sense cock is close.

indexWhen his hands start to slide toward my ass, I grab his wrists.

“What—?” He beings to ask, but I silence him with a finger over his mouth.

Taking both his wrists in my hands, I pull them off my body and bring them against the wall next to his head.

My body immediately protests the departure of his touch, but the metallic gleam in my peripheral steels my resolve.

Pressing my body against his, every muscle tenses beneath me.

With my mouth just one tongue lick away from his, I slide my right hand toward the hanger pole. The metal is cold in my hand, a complete contrast to the fire raging between this beast of a man and me.

Swallowing my reservations, I slowly lick my bottom lip. The action almost brings me a taste of his bottom lip. Xavier’s mouth parts on a low moan.

He’s distracted enough that he doesn’t even realize where I’m moving his hands. Until the metal clasps around his wrists.

First, he grins, clearly thinking fifty shades of kink games are about to start, but the smile falls as he watches me slide down and away from his body.cuffs

Leveling a look at him, I cross my arms over my chest.

“What the fuck are you doing?” He growls, pulling at the cuffs.

The pole protests, but holds strong.

“You really need to know who you mess with before you fuck up a girl’s vagina party for two plans,” I reprimand.

“Get me out of these,” he demands, yanking harder against his confines.

“Sorry, I don’t have a key,” I explain, batting my eyelashes.

Unable to hide my amusement, a laugh escapes me.

“You’re fucking crazy,” he shouts. “Let me go!”

Bringing my finger to my chin, I purse my lips and tap.

“Hmmm… I think you need a lesson,” I state, grabbing the door knob.

“Red!” His bellow causes me to jump.

braXavier opens his mouth to yell once more, but in a reflex reaction, I snag a red sequin bra from a hanger and shove it in his mouth.

His eyes widen in shock then rage.

Realizing I may have taken this a step too far, I panic. Backing out of the closet, I grab the door and slam it shut.

The knob jiggles, not like someone trying to open it with their hands, but like it’s being kicked.  I grab it, thinking I can stop him from getting out.

Low voices carry from down the hall before I hear Liza call out.

“What did you do?”

Glancing at Liza, her face lined with worry, nose flares, and her eyes narrow at me in suspicion.

I paste a big grin on my face and release the doorknob.

With one last look at the door, I power walk my big ass toward my cousin and her walking talking billboard of a boyfriend.

“Talk later, walk now,” I rush the words out.

Reaching them, I hear the doorknob once more and break into a run for the exit.

Behind me, Liza says, “Run, run now.”

Their footfalls start just as a loud, yet muffled, crash fills the air.

 

Outside, a familiar driver waits.

kat-dennings-10939

Sidra (Sid)  (inspiration)

 

“You’re here for Jackson, right?” I pant the question.

He gives a nod and moves to open the door.

“I got it,” I shout, opening the door.

Before I slide in, I yell, “Get the car started and ready to take off.”

He stays still, furrowing his brow at me.

“Now man! It’s a matter of life and death,” I snap, slapping the top of the car with my palm for emphasis.

A winded Liza and Jackson emerge from the club and rush toward the car.

“The fuck did you do?” Jackson growls as we climb into the car one by one.

“Go, man, go,” I order, slapping the seat between us and the driver.

He pauses a moment, glancing to Jackson in the rearview mirror.

“You suck as a getaway driver,” I complain at the driver.

Jackson must give him the okay because we shoot off from the curb and away from the club.

Twisting in my seat, I watch out the back window until Lux Hedonica is nowhere in sight. That’s when I’m finally able to relax into the seat.

“Do I even want to know what that was about?” Liza asks in her motherly tone.

“Probably not,” I inform her.

“Should we expect the police?” She continues the grilling.

“The police?!” Jack exclaims.

“Nah,” I say, but pray to God it’s the police that shows up instead of Xavier.

I’m so fucking dead if he gets his hands on me.

My vagina, still confused by the events, clenches expectantly, sending out one last Save-Our-Clit signal.

Sorry, girl, it’s just you and me tonight.

My wrist aches in protest one more time.

Long stem roses, candlelight dinners and slow dancing. Gray is very traditional in the romance department.

Have you ever written naked?
Um, no. I don’t like being cold.

Only now and again just to make myself feel better.

 

Do you like to sing in the shower?
Not really.

 

What comes first, Chicken or Egg?
Definitely The chicken.

 

If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?
The Life Of An Idealistic Dreamer. That was easy!

 

Do you have quirky habits?  Secret Talents?

The Last of The Mohicans (Tragic I know)

Be good to yourself.

 

My favorite unusual food combination is:
A banana sandwich!

Burst out dancing for no reason.

 

What punctuation mark best describes your personality? Why?
The question mark. I ask a lot of questions.

 

What is your favorite Disney tune?
Under The Sea from The Little Mermaid.

 

What literary character do you feel is most like you?
Chloe Martin from Hand in Glove and her love interest Ashton Wright. Both characters have strong elements of my personality in them even though they are quite different individuals.

Shoes (preferably sandals)

 

Why isn’t the number 11 pronounced as onety one?
Hmmmm? I’ve been stumped.

 

What was the best thing before sliced bread?
Freshly baked Italian bread!

 

If I came to your home and looked inside the refrigerator, what would I find?
Milk, cheese, butter, fruit and vegetables. A little bit of everything.

 

Do you know what an Eskimo Brother/Sister is?  If so, how many do you have?  ☺
I’m not quite sure what this means?

 

Tell us about your current release or upcoming project(s).

My latest or I should say current project is my upcoming release of House of Goths!
I’ve had such a good experience with Wattpad and this book. I’ve been rather reluctant to remove it from that platform in order to release it for sale. But as it turns out, I may have found a way to make it available all platforms including Wattpad!

 

Thank you Maria for being such a great sport and answering my ridiculous questions & thanks for sharing your characters and books with us.

So…. everyone, go check out Maria!

Excerpt: Seizing Control by Kylie Hillman

Standard

Seizing Control eBook CoverExcerpt from Seizing Control
by Kylie Hillman:

“Brendan, borrow a helmet off Dad’s bike and come for a ride,” I shout over the engines, pointing at Dad’s bike. I probably should share my first ride with him, even though he doesn’t appreciate Harleys at all. He regards me, disbelief written all over his face. He shakes his head, “No, thank you. Are you sure you can handle that bike? It’s pretty big for a girl,” he asks, disapproval radiating from him.

Before I can answer him, Mik interjects in a firm voice. “Of course she fucking can. As if I’d give her something she couldn’t handle. Fucking amateur.”

He shakes his head at Brendan with disgust, grabbing the helmet I pointed to off of Dad’s bike. Jogging toward me, he winks. Oh, no. I know that look.

“If lover boy’s too scared to go with you, I’ll go.”

I can hear Benji laughing like a lunatic over the pulsing of the bikes. He loves it when anyone cuts Brendan down publicly.

“I’d prefer if you didn’t, Mik,” Brendan tells him in a clipped voice. Brendan turns his attention to me, effectively dismissing him.

“It’s not appropriate, Lainey.”

“Is that fucking right, lover boy?”

Mik shoots Brendan a poisonous glare, causing Brendan to turn back to him.

Why does Brendan have to do this now? It’s not going to end well for him.

I swallow when Mik takes a menacing step closer to him. “I’m Mad Dog to civvies like you, I’ll have you know. And she…” Mik points in my direction. “Is not Lainey to anyone but me.”

Surprise fills me when Brendan blanches in the face of Mik’s open hostility, taking a step back. Mik follows, not finished telling him how it’s going to be.

“I’ll also have you know that if I want to go for a ride with her, I fucking will. If any man here wants to go for a ride with her and she wants to take them, then she will. You’re her boyfriend, unfortunately, not her fucking owner, so fuck you and fuck your inappropriate shit.”

I hold my breath, waiting for Brendan to lose it…

Not Your Typical Author Interview with Kylie Hillman

Standard

Not Your Typical AI

Welcome Kylie Hillman!

Let’s learn about your character(s).

 

What is your main character’s favorite color? Mik “Mad Dog” Kennedy- Black, Maddi O’Brien- Royal Blue

 

What is your main character’s book? They have two. They are the main characters in Seizing Control, Black Shamrocks MC #1 and Tempting Fate, Black Shamrocks MC Book #4. They appear in every book in the series as well in an overarching storyline.

 

What is your main character’s movie?  Mad Dog- Easyrider, Maddi- Legally Blonde. Read Seizing Control and you’ll get the joke😉

 

What is your main character’s favorite ice cream flavor? Mad Dog- Neapolitan, Maddi- Cappuccino

 

What was your main character’s favorite grade level/year in school?   Mad Dog- Year Twelve (thank fuck it was over), Maddi- every year was better than the last

 

What kind of underwear does your villain prefer? Brendan wears boxer-briefs

 

Would your main character’s crush/sig. other win survivor by strength, by cheating, or not at all? Strength, all the way! Mik is tough to the max.

 

If your main character was a drink, what would they be? Mad Dog- the strongest Moonshine, Maddi- Expresso Grande

 

Does your main character get road rage? (If they drive at all)?  Both suffer from it and aren’t afraid to let the other drivers know about their displeasure.

 

What’s the one thing your main character can’t live without? Each other. Can we say co-dependant lol.

 

What is your main character’s idea of romance? Non-existent. Romance, what romance? Although, that might change in Tempting Fate.
Your main character’s favorite season? Why? Summer. Best weather to ride.
What’s your main character(s) favorite material item? Why? Their Harley’s. Nothing is more freeing than the wind on your face and nothing more than three inches of rubber between you and death.

 

Is your main character a dog or cat person? Dog.
Main character’s favorite sexual position? Whatever works against the closest flat surface!
Villain’s favorite sexual position? Missionary, easiest position to abuse from.

 

Thank you so much for sharing about your characters, now tell us about you.

Have you ever written naked? Yes, more than I should admit. Getting dressed is overrated.
What do you believe is your biggest failure? Letting fear of other people’s opinions hold me back until now. It’s been freeing to realise that it’s impossible to please everyone so I should only concentrate on pleasing myself and the ones who look out for me. I’ve found the ones who whine the loudest are the ones who support you the least…so why should their opinion matter so much?
Do you have any scars? What are they from? I have a scar from the middle of stomach from my ribs down to my pubic bone from being open up five times for bowel resections due to Crohn’s disease. I also have six smaller scars from various drains I’ve needed after my surgeries. I have a smaller scar next to my left eye which I’ve had since I was a baby. I can’t remember what happened or how I got it. I don’t even see it when I look in the mirror anymore.
Can you fake any accents? Yep. I do pretty good Irish, English, kiwi, and American accents. I’m also really good at mimicking people.

 

Name 2 things you consider yourself to be very bad at. Waking up in a good mood and doing the grocery shopping before we’ve started to reach critical levels of food shortage in the house. Thank Christ, I’ve discovered Woolworths Click and Collect.
If you could have picked your own name, what would it be? Mickayla- which is why I named my daughter that. Luckily she turned out to be my Mini-Me.
Who is your animated boyfriend? (Like a book boyfriend, but a cartoon/animated one.) Will E. Coyote.
Be honest, how often do you wash your hair? Three to four times a week. It’s not good to wash your hair very day.
Is your hair color real or chemically engineered? Absolutely chemically engineered. I’m not sure what my natural colour is anymore.

 

Are you a person who makes their bed in the morning, or do you not see much point? No way. Getting out of it is hard enough without having to make it as well.
Do you like to sing in the shower? Yep, every day. Much to my kid’s annoyance.

 

What comes first, Chicken or Egg? Egg. The chicken that hatched was obviously a mutation of another avian creature.

 

If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be? Snark: The true story of the Queen of Sarcasm.
If you were a Star Trek® [or Star Wars® ] character, which one would it be? According to my husband, I’m C-3PO. Almost human, but not quite emotional enough to remove all doubt.
Do you have quirky habits?  Secret Talents? I have a really good memory. I can meet you once and then remember random details about you like your kids names, where you went to school etc. Secret Talent- I have a methodical brain that can organise everything at lightning speed. Analytical decision making is not a problem for me and it drives my family nuts.

 

What’s your favorite love story? (movie or book)? Movie- Sweet Home Alabama, although I have a huge soft spot for The Longest Ride. Book- The Signal Bend series by Susan Fanetti.

 

What’s your favorite line from any movie? Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.” Dead Poets Society and “Hope. It is the only thing stronger than fear. A little hope is effective. A lot of hope is dangerous. A spark is fine, as long as it’s contained.”

The Hunger Games

 

Just like “Everybody Wang Chung tonight!”, what action would your name be if it were a verb? I haven’t a clue what this question means🙂

 

What are your favorite hobbies? I spend my free time reading, walking my dogs through national parks, camping, fishing, acting as spotter while we drag our kids around behind the boat on their kneeboards and tubes. I also enjoy four-wheel-driving, going for rides on the back of my hubby’s Harley (I will ride my own one day!!), and taking spontaneous trips away for the weekend. Basically anything outdoorsy where I can get in touch with nature.

 

Do you believe in love at first sight? Yes. I knew my husband was the one for me when I meet him when I was 14. I used to doodle Mrs. Kylie Hillman on my school books. Although, we didn’t get together until just before I turned 18—he was slow on the uptake lol.

 

If you were to create a slogan for your life, what would it be? (Example: Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow, we all die.) It is what it is; no point stressing the small stuff. I’m getting that tattooed on my wrist.
How many licks does it take to get to the middle of a tootsie pop? Not a clue, never had one.
My favorite unusual food combination is: Cooked two minute noodles mixed with five eggs, grated cheese, and the seasoning packet, then cooked as an omelette.

 

What childish things do you still do as adult? I still roll my eyes at my father, and he still threatens to clip my ear.
What punctuation mark best describes your personality? Why? Exclamation mark. Everything I say and do needs to be punctuated by more than a period in my mind🙂

 

If you were a spy what would your alias be? Malevolent Minx. I’d use the male susceptibility to a nice pair of legs against them on the regular, plus I like the idea of getting payback because whatever side I’m spying for would be the good side, naturally.

 

What is your favorite Disney tune? Beauty and the Beast
Lip synching or Karaoke-ing? Karaoke-ing. I fancy myself to be the next Lana Del Rey.
Choose a movie title for the story of your life. The Pursuit of Happiness.

 

What do you want your tombstone to say? She came; she cared; she left you full of love.

 

What literary character do you feel is most like you? Lilli from The Signal Bend series. Or Beth from Jamie Begley’s Last Riders series.

 

Shoes or Handbags? Impossible choice. Both are the only things that I still fit no matter how up and down my weight goes.
Why isn’t the number 11 pronounced as onety one? Because the English language is made up of more exceptions than rules. This was done simply to confuse us and make homework that much more difficult for parents when their children ask questions like that.
What was the best thing before sliced bread? Caffeine. Definitely has to be caffeine.

 

If I came to your home and looked inside the refrigerator, what would I find? Lots of fresh veggies and fruit. Chocolate. Juice. Milk. Yoghurt…and probably something that my kids have spilled and left for me to clean up.

 

Do you know what an Eskimo Brother/Sister is?  If so, how many do you have?  Yep! And too many to count because my hubby was an absolute manwhore in our circle before we became official😉

 

 Kylie, you’ve been great answering these questions.  Let’s hear about your current and upcoming projects.

 

Tell us about your current release or upcoming project(s).

 

At the moment, I’ve just celebrated the release of the 3rd book on my Black Shamrocks MC series, Seeking Redemption. My MC is set in Australia and doesn’t follow your usual alpha chases unwilling female and conquers her with strong words, a big dick, and multiple orgasms routine. I’m very anti-establishment so I hope that shines through. I also like to comment on social issues such as domestic violence, abuse, drug addiction, PTSD, and parental alienation—just to name a few—intertwined with epic love and lots of hope. Which is apt considering that I feel hope and love is what separates us from animals.

I’m also currently working on two short stories for upcoming ‘secret squirrel’ anthologies, both of which will follow my Black Shamrocks MC. I’m currently finalising my first standalone called Brawl. It is a departure from my MC and a tiny bit taboo with a much older MMA fighter and a younger girl. Exploring issues of family neglect and how it affects individual maturity, breaking the norms of society to get what YOU need from your life, and making the most of a shitty situation. Brawl is coming out in May.

 

After that, I’ll be finishing the final two installments of my Black Shamrocks MC with book four, Tempting Fate, due in July and the final book, Finding Nirvana, due out of 30th September.

ABOUT KYLIE:

Untitled

Kylie Hillman is an Australian author.

Wife to a Harley-riding, boating and fishing, four-wheel driving, underground mining quintessential Aussie bloke.

Mum to two crazy, adorable, and original kids.

Crohn’s Disease sufferer and awareness campaigner.

She’s also an avid tea drinker, a connoisseur of 80s/90s rock music, and is known for lacing everything she says with sarcasm and inappropriate innuendo.

Formerly working in finance, she was forced to reevaluate her plans for her life when severe Crohn’s Disease brought her corporate career to a screeching halt. Restarting her childhood hobbies of writing and reading to alleviate the monotony of being sick and housebound, she found her calling and is enjoying life to the max. A typical day is now spent in the “real” world where she hangs out with her awesome family and “book” world where she gets to chill with her fictional characters.

Kylie writes the books she wants to read. A lover of strong men who aren’t perfect and aren’t afraid to admit it, straight-talking women who embrace their vulnerabilities, and real life gritty stories, she hopes these themes shine through her writing. An avid reader of all genres, Kylie hopes to release books that keep the reader on the edge of their seat—be it with suspense, romance, or laughter.
