Title: In The Moment: Part One
Author Name: Rachael Orman
Publication Date & Length: March 2nd – 50pgs
Alicia knows Ace as the hard, tattooed biker who frequents the bar she works at. So when she finds him locked in a compromising position with another man, she is shocked to discover he’s not who she thought he was.
Brushing off all Ace’s behavior has become second nature, until he makes advances toward her. Alicia gives in, not knowing where her desires will take her.
I am not sure what I expected when I opened this little snack of a book. I can tell you what I was left with… the need for more. This is going to be a story told in several parts. So this first installment was a short read, but I truly enjoyed it.
Ace is the big bad tough biker dude on the outside but he knows what he wants. Alicia has seen him in the bar several times, but until that moment when she walked into the bathroom to a scene that she wasn’t expecting, she had always crushed on him a bit. But she knew that he got around with every bar bunny there was and there was no way she would ever be a notch on his bedpost. But when she walked into the supply closet, what she saw was anything but what she was expecting.
It threw him for a loop too. He wasn’t expecting her to walk in, but more than that, he wasn’t expecting her to just stand there and watch. But when he stops her as she is leaving work that night, there is a shift. He knows that she wants some of that even though he just had a little slice of Adam heaven…
He is relentless in his pursuit and that is really all I can say about the story itself otherwise I will give away the entire episode. Ace is hot, commanding and knows what he likes. He is all alpha. Though he plays the field a little, from the moment he saw Alicia, he knew he wanted something more. Not just from her either.
Alicia is a strong woman. She knows how to handle the bar and she is treated with the most respect from those in the bar. She is fair and honest but there is something about Ace that just sets her on fire, in the most delicious way.
My biggest issue with this was the length of it. Though I knew what I was getting into when I agreed to read it, this is a newer concept for me. I think I have only read one other story told in parts. I will say that it didn’t take anything away from it and it certainly left me with the want for more. But it is a great start to an amazing story. I can feel that already with the tension and steam within the pages. I am looking forward to reading the entire series.
My head hit the thin metal wall behind me and his lips left mine. Instead of backing off though, he simply moved his kisses to my neck.
“Damn. Stop doing that,” I whispered, unable to force my voice any louder. He simply acted as if I hadn’t spoken and made his way back up before taking my earlobe between his teeth.
“Don’t like when I make you hot? Is that why you want me to stop?” His hot breath rushed over the wet skin left behind from his kisses. “Don’t tell me you aren’t turned on. I can smell it.”
A whimper was my only response as my knees weakened.
Mother by day. Writer by night. I spend a majority of my day with my children and reading while my nights are filled with the sound of the keyboard as I work on my next work.
I have written in nearly every LBGT category as well as the traditional erotic romance category.
I love to try new things and learn from every piece of work I write. I’ll write just about anything once to learn from it. I’ve even ventured out of my normal erotica genre into Monster Erotica. Doubt you’ll find me writing anything not erotic as you can barely get me to even read something out of that category, but then again, you never know what I might try next.
Never stop learning. Try everything at least once.
