Kiss Me, Please


  by CC Koen
a NA, Contemporary Romance


What would you do to improve your life?

Twenty-one-year-old Serena Thomas is faced with a tough decision. Unable to get ahead of debt and loneliness since her grandmother’s death she finds a new job, placing the sheltered virgin in an underground escort business. She tells herself it’s just a temporary life choice, but destiny has a different plan. She meets a mysterious and gorgeous man, who happens to be her new boss. Will Serena fit in or will she be left all alone again?

Lincoln (aka: Linc) Jefferson has an unusual life. He established The Lounge, an exclusive escort club for very personal reasons. A place where the women say who, when, and what type of sex they’re willing to have. The escorts possess all the power and the money. It’s a business Linc guards at all costs. Trying to maintain the secrecy is a constant challenge and one that’s tested when he enters into a relationship with Serena. She tempts him unlike any woman, even though he’s surrounded by beauty on a daily basis. The more time they spend together the harder it is for him to keep his secrets. Will Serena stand by his side or will she abandon him?

Sparks and passion fly, taking these two on a journey neither could have expected.


 Review by pearls:

 Intensity is the word that best describes the way Linc lives his life.  Everything he does and says is done with passion and direction.  Enter one little lost girl, and his desire to protect knocks him off his feet.  While this story is mostly told from Serena's naïve point of view, it is Linc who steals the stage.  His self denial in the name of making Serena feel safe reveals the martyr that he has become.  Each comes with their own tragic back story, and the cast of friends and enemies make a colorful appearance.  Everyone should have a friend like Mylynee. And while he may think he is saving her, Serena saves him right back.  For all her innocence, she is gutsy and independent. The scene of their first intimacy deserves to be nominated for most romantic deflowering.  Heck, Linc can deflower me any day.

He yanked me up from my seat and launched his lips on mine so fast the contact zapped me with a thousand volts. His strokes, bold at first, lightened to soft, tender kisses almost as if he was asking permission to enter—to taste.

The heat from his hands, holding my upper arms, seared me.

My fists clenched and unclenched over and over at my sides.

Touch him? Don’t touch him?

Unable to deny myself, I moved closer, aligning my body with his. My hands gravitated of their own volition, melting to his tight abs and drifting upward, over his chest and up to his neck, where I held on for the ride.

His loud groan rumbled across my breasts, and his firm arms wound around my back, crushing me against him.

For the first time in my life, I surrendered and parted my lips, ready to welcome him in. Instead of tongues diving toward one another, Linc stilled and clamped his mouth shut. As I started to step away, he clenched my hips, holding me in place. He pressed his forehead to mine and slammed his eyes closed.

Kiss me, please.

  1. Thank you for participating in the Intensity tour. I thought I commented on your posts yesterday but when I visited again today I didn't see it. I'm returning to comment and hopefully this time you'll get to see it.

    Thank you for taking time to review Intensity and for your posts. I appreciate it so much. I'm so glad you loved Linc. I have a huge crush on him too. Where are men like him hiding? (hehe)
