tag17Sexy, tattooed and inevitably dangerous. Memphis is all that and more…

I live for the pain; it’s what drives me to keep moving. But there comes a time when one has to push the demons aside in order to survive.

I thought I buried them deep. I thought I was ready to finally live. Until… my brother, Alex; he throws me into the fire—right into the place I could never control myself, the one place I never want to be again.

When I put my hands on people, they get hurt. Things happen that bring me back to that night. The one that will forever torment me.

I’m doing fine, keeping to myself in order to ensure no one gets hurt by me. Then along comes Lyric, and all I want to do is touch her, to put my hands in places that I know will only lead to her being crushed by me.

She’s the rush that I crave. The darkest of poison running through my veins, killing me bit by bit; like a drug I can’t get enough of even though I’m almost down to my last breath.

And being around her only hurts more, but what she doesn’t understand is that I welcome the pain; I get off on it, which in the end leaves me with the hardest decision of my life—one that might get us all killed…Get Off Teaser 03-2

tag19Lyric steps away and laughs before walking over and stopping in front of me. She looks up into my eyes and licks her bottom lip. Her whole body is glistening with sweat now, and all I can think about is tasting every inch of her. “Dance with me, Memphis.”

I pull my eyes away from her lips and flex my jaw. As much as I want to put my hands all over, I need to fight it, but this fucking liquor isn’t doing much to help it.

“No, Lyric.”

She takes a step closer and runs her tiny, soft hand down my arm. “Just once. It’s not even a big deal. It’s just a dance. It’s not like I’m asking you to fuck me. I’m asking you to touch me.”

“You want me to touch you,” I growl. I roughly slide my hands over her hips before gripping her waist and slamming her up against the wall. Leaning in, I fist her hair in my hand and whisper in her ear. “Is this how you want me to touch you? Touching someone that I know always leads to them getting hurt.” I grip her waist tighter and press my body flush with hers. Her body trembles against mine and her breathing picks up as my bottom lip brushes over her ear. “I’m fucking tainted, Lyric. Running now would be your best option.”

She looks up into my eyes and wets her lips, fighting to catch her breath. “I. Want. You. To. Touch. Me. I’m not running anywhere.”

FUCK! Those words do me in.

Hornet’s Nest
AUTHOR: Jaycee
Bug Series – Book Three
GENRE:  Contemporary
RELEASE DATE:  February 3rd, 2014


Klein has been warned: Stay far away from Lance Walton. After one night in the
country, the quintessential city girl has the unwanted attention of the
infamous country boy. For months, she’s been dodging his advances, but a moment
of weakness changes everything.
Lance Walton
felt immediately drawn to Katherine from the moment she knocked on his best
friend’s door Christmas morning. Winning over this city girl is a mountain of a
task for any country boy, but Lance is up to the challenge. He never expected
the morning he left her naked at The Inn would be the last time he would see
In the
aftermath of her bad decisions, Katherine returns to the city. Haunted by what
they shared and all she lost, she vows to never return to the country. But the
country finds her unexpectedly when Lance shows up in the most unlikely place.
But does he have the country boy charm to break through the walls of her heart
and outshine the big city competition?


a refill?”
            Her eyes shot over to me. I smiled
holding out another glass for her. She didn’t appear to be drunk by any means.
Something told me that this girl could hold her liquor. Her hand reached out,
taking the glass from my grip. When our fingers touched, I knew. I knew she
couldn’t deny what was happening between us. There was something definitely
happening between us; something that had never happened before … except for
once. I turned my head and found my pregnant ex-girlfriend on the lap of my
best friend a few tables down. My heart hurt, I could admit that. But seeing
two people I truly loved being undeniably happy made it all worth it. I gave
them hell and I wished I hadn’t, but things were right with the world now. I
was happy enough for them.
            “Would you like to sit?”
            Yep. Things were right with the
world now.
            I sat down next to Katherine in a
wooden folding chair. The distance was too great, so I adjusted my chair,
becoming almost flush with hers. I draped my arm around her and rested it on
the back of the chair. I stared out over the dance floor and could feel her
eyes question my arm around her. She would just have to get used to it. I
planned on touching a lot more than just her shoulder.
            “So, what has you all mopey?” I
asked as I continued to watch Jordan and Tom’s first dance.
            “I’m not mopey,” she shot back,
proving that she was in fact mopey.
            “Says the girl who already downed a
bottle of champagne before the first dance is over.” I glanced at her, and her
eyes fell on me. In that moment, I knew why she was upset. I looked at Jordan
and Tom dancing and then back at Katherine. I squeezed her into a half-ass hug
and said, “Think of it this way, beautiful. You didn’t lose a friend. You
gained me.”
            She laughed while elbowing me in the
stomach, and said, “I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.”
            Katherine continued to laugh until
she caught my eye. I leaned in close to her, slowly brushing my nose against
her cheek until my lips reached her ear. The breath caught in her throat.
            “I’ll prove to you how good it can

Hornet’s Nest is book three in the Love Bug Series and is Lance and Katherine’s story. There is also a character crossover from books one and two.

Avoid Lance Walton! That’s the advice given to Katherine Klein. Lance is a country boy who loves women and is definitely a player. Katherine is a city girl through and through. As soon as they set eyes on each other, the air sizzled the attraction strongly. But Katherine is determined to fight her heart and Lance is determined to win her over. One night, everything changes after their best friend’s wedding. Large amounts of alcohol is consumed and Katherine can no longer resist Lance. They spend a hot sexy night together but the next morning Katherine has gone. She runs back to the city determined to put Lance and that night behind her.

One year later, Lance has moved to the city. Now an accountant, he’s changed, he’s sorted his life out and wants his girl!! He’s determined to prove to her he’s worthy of her. Katherine is shocked. The city is the last place she would have expected him to show up! Can Lance persuade her to give him a chance, to prove all her judgements she’d made about him were wrong?

Katherine is hiding a secret one which could send Lance running. Or maybe he’ll even surprise her and be there when he’s needed. After a lot of misjudging and misunderstandings, will Katherine and Lance find the happy ever after their best friends have?

I really enjoyed this book. I knew I would having read books one and two. Jaycee has created wonderful characters that are easy to fall in love with! The story pulls you in instantly and I read it in just one sitting loving every page. You could feel the angst and frustration each of them go through, and ultimately the joy of finding true love with each other. Or is it really? You’ll have to read it to find out!
