Beneath the Surface by M.A. Stacie

Beneath the Surface

By M.A. Stacie

Published By The Writer's Coffee Shop


Summary
Kyran Reese is a man in control. Driven when it comes to work, focused when it comes to play. From his office to the chalk circle of Metro’s bare-knuckle boxing ring, his only thought is to win. That thirst heightens when Dale Porter enters his life. His brother’s assistant should be off-limits, but her witty comments and sarcastic comebacks have him desperate to get her between the sheets. After receiving an unexpected left hook, Kyran gets exactly what he wants, though he makes the rules very clear.
When Dale agrees to Kyran’s relationship stipulation of no labels, she’s sucked into a whirlwind of lust, money, and underground boxing.  The agreement to keep their lust away from the office is discarded when rules are molded to suit their ever-increasing attraction. Dale fights her growing affection, trying to hide it even when the world around them spirals out of control. All too soon she realizes she can’t hide her true feelings any longer.
Kyran begins to wonder if he’s finally met his match, and with his family falling apart before his eyes, he turns to the two things he knows will keep him sane: boxing and Dale. Those crutches can’t last forever, and when Kyran finds it harder to function he is left with a decision he never thought he’d have to make.
Could playing to win mean playing for keeps?

Excerpt


“And did you feel envious?” She hooked her finger into the waistband of his shorts, pulling the elastic away from his body. “Is that why you were so mad at me?”


“We should stop, Dale. This isn’t good for either of us. I don’t do relationships, and you can’t keep this light and casual. No woman can.” He shuffled backward.


“Wrong.”


“I’m never wrong,” he said with utter conviction, taking another step back. He huffed as the shower spray hit his back. However, when he looked at her body he was met with the sight of a wet, aroused Dale. She didn’t care if she was fully clothed; she followed him into the shower.

The water had sprayed her, catching her sweater and causing it to stick to her chest.

The woman was braless.

Protruding against the cloth, her nipples were hard and begging for his attention. His mouth watered and his balls hummed with a desire he’d only ever experienced with Dale.

She cocked her head, pulling on his shorts again. Unable to hold back any longer, Kyran lowered his head and took her erect nipple into his mouth. He teased it through the sweater, scraping with his teeth. She gave a soft exhale, pushing her chest closer to his mouth. He considered stopping at that point, concerned that they’d resolved nothing, but as her hands began to remove his shorts, his concerns fled.

The water sluiced down his back and over his aching muscles. It cascaded across his naked buttocks; Dale had finally managed to take his clothing from him. Her sweater followed seconds later, exposing her breasts to him and heightening his savage lust.

Summary
Elle is an energetic, independent woman with a successful business and new start in the big city. The bustling streets of New York are not what she expected, yet she finds the freedom exhilarating. One interaction at the mailboxes with her shy, strikingly handsome neighbor is all it takes to turn the strong- willed young woman into a bumbling mess.

Jonah Quinn is withdrawn for good reason; he harbors a dark secret. He lives his life in the shadows, playing his music in late night bars and hiding himself from everyone but Elle's cat. His tattoos bear his pain while his music is his outlet, but it is his silence that keeps his shame at bay.

Can one night of passion between the two of them lead to more than casual glances exchanged at their mailboxes? Will Elle be strong enough to help Jonah with his personal demons. And will Jonah break his silence regarding a past that haunts him?

The Rules for this relationship are Unwritten. A story of longing, love, and forgiveness.
