Today I’m part of a book tour from CBLS Promotions and welcome author Lacey Wolfe for a guest post.
Thank you so much for having me on your blog today! I’m very excited to be here.
Not only am I a writer, but I am also a major bookworm. When I sit down to read a book, I like to get lost in it, as most reader’s do. I like a hint of reality along with one of those plots that we all wish would happen. You know, the fantasy of the cabana boy cleaning the pool and uh…lots of other stuff. *wink wink*
When I first came up with the idea to Tempting The Manny, I thought it was going to purely be fantasy. A man who comes in and helps a woman with her kids and then heats up her nights. That wasn’t all that happened. Olivia had a story to tell. In fact, as I wrote this story, I was amazed that Olivia turned into the character that she did.
In Tempting The Manny, you will of course find hot sex but you will also meet a woman who has a lot of growth. Olivia leaves a bad relationship to start a journey of growing stronger and learning who she is. And by the end of the novella, she has done just that. I think this novella is packed with chemistry, sex, and emotion.
It was a surprise for me when the story became more than just pure lust and fantasy. Then again, as a writer, one thing I have learned in characters don’t always make things easy for us.
So now I’d love to hear from you. When you sit down with the perfect book, is it for fantasy, reality, or a mix of both.

Olivia’s world is torn to pieces when her boyfriend leaves her for a younger woman. But she has no time to dwell on it, she must pick-up the pieces for her children. And the first thing on her list is hiring a sitter. In return though, she gets a very unexpected surprise.
Jamie loves children. He comes from a big family and can’t wait to start his own one day. From the moment he meets Olivia and her children, he feels like this is where he’s suppose to be. But he mustn’t act on how he feels and does his best to stay professional, even with Olivia making it very difficult for him.
As Olivia and Jamie try their best to fight the way they’re feeling and figure out of it can work, her ex-boyfriend shows back up to complicate things. After a string of her own lies, can Olivia figure out what it is she really wants?
Jamie’s gaze followed Olivia’s ass as she walked toward the fridge. She bent slightly over reaching for the ketchup, and he was worried his erection was going to burst out of his pants. The way she looked at him as she headed back to her plate of food, he wasn’t sure if she was hungry for those fries or him. He had never met a woman with so much sexual desire, it was almost pouring from her veins. He wasn’t sure about the story with the ex, but that man had to be crazy for leaving.
Ketchup was on the corner of her mouth. Instinctively, he grabbed the towel, leaned forward, and wiped her mouth. Her eyes locked on his and, before he could even think twice, his hand wrapped around the back of her neck and pulled her to him. Her mouth met his just as fiercely and opened, letting his tongue slide in. The taste of ketchup met his taste buds and the need to taste more of her sprung through his body.
Olivia gripped his shoulders and pulled him closer. His free hand took hold of her waist. His erection shoved into her stomach. The kiss was like fire and even though he knew he should be resisting, he had to keep playing. Turning his head to the side, he deepened the kiss. She tasted so good and felt even better in his arms.
Pushing her back slightly against the counter, he nudged her legs apart with his knee, pressing his thigh tightly between. His dick was so hard now, it hurt.
Her mouth left his and for a moment he almost had time to stop and think about how wrong this was, but then her tongue swirled around his ear lobe and he was gone again.
His aching hands found her breasts, full and large. He cupped them, but imagined his face pressed between them instead. Licking his lips, he couldn’t wait to taste them.
“Mr. Jamie.” A little girl’s voice called from the living room.
Frozen, he took a step back from Olivia.
“Just a minute,” he called back.
Olivia’s eyes were full of passion. She bit her lip and he could tell she was nervous, but not for a second did she regret what happened. He knew this had been very wrong and he hated what he had to say. “I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have kissed you.”
A smile crossed her face when he had expected something different.
“I don’t think you are.”
Her hand reached down, touching his erection. He sucked in, now biting his lip to try a push away the urge to grind into it.
Letting her hand drop, she strutted past him to go to her daughter. His gaze once again followed her round little ass in her pencil skirt. She was right. If Morgan hadn’t interrupted them, he would have been finding out what it was like under that skirt.
