GIVEAWAY ALERT: Amber Rules, Book 1 of The Hollywood Rules series by Melinda Curtis

For years, Amber Rule was the main attraction in her father's self-help infomercials, his personal before-to-after example of how to transform your life:  overweight to svelte adolescent, dependent teen to independent adult, social dork to paparazzi princess.  Dooley Rule pointed out all of Amber's failings - on camera no less - and then made it appear he'd fixed them.  He used Amber to hawk his personal life coaching services and peddle his motivational books.  She had no interest in the Dooley Foundation and the Rules of Attraction it hawked: Choose, Voice, Trust, Welcome.

But then her father dies, leaving Amber and the rest of gossip hungry L.A. wondering what celebrity secrets her father kept.  All Amber has to do to ensure her secrets are safe, earn her inheritance, and return to her normal, paparazzi-free life is improve the mental game of the biggest bad-ass in the NBA, Evan Oliver.  Too bad Amber knows nothing about basketball or life coaching.  Too bad Evan Oliver is determined to do things his own way, especially when it comes to teaching Amber a new set of rules.


“Where are we going?”

“Someplace more private.”  Evan passed the stairs, stopped beneath the landing where it was even darker and studied Amber one more time as if considering his next move carefully.

If he’d nearly pushed her buttons on the dance floor, what would Evan do in a more discreet location?  How far would Amber let him go?  Her body trembled with anticipation and three years of pent up need as she waited for Evan to decide what to do with her, praying he wouldn’t have second thoughts, determined not to have any herself for at least another five minutes.

Tangling his fingers in Amber’s hair, Evan dragged her to him for a feverish kiss that demanded more than lips became involved.  He crushed Amber against his hard, unyielding body, using his long arms and big hands to bind them together as if they were physically joined.  It took only moments for it to seem natural for Amber’s pelvis to strain against each thrust of his hips, as if they were naked and he were inside of her.  It was decadently thrilling and dangerously hot.  It was bittersweet relief when Evan drew back enough to slip a hand inside the bodice of Amber’s dress to cup one lace cocooned breast, to squeeze her nipple until she ached for release. 

Amber gasped for breath, burning for a more intimate touch.  For sex.  Full body pounding, nakedly urgent sex.  But not here.  Not where they might be discovered.  Amber only wanted one more kiss.  One more steamy stroke…

Evan’s hand wound its way inside Amber’s panties and then he thrust a finger inside her.  She moaned tremulously against his mouth as she peaked, her heat spilling around him.  Restless energy made her limbs shake.  And then Evan withdrew and Amber would have sunk to the floor if he hadn’t held her close. 

This is what depravation did to a woman.

It made her greedy and wanton.
