Release Day for HOLD ME UNTIL MIDNIGHT #MySexySaturday Bad Boy Bodyguard

Big welcome to this week's My Sexy Saturday, when it's all about the boy next door :-)

My Grayson Brothers series from Entangled Brazen is all about the boys next door - Alex, Jackson and Cooper, who had it tough growing up. Jackson, the middle brother and hero of my recent release, Hold Me Until Midnight, spent four years as a street fighter when he was a teen - and has the scars to prove it.

He doesn't believe in love or happily-ever-after, and definitely doesn't think Scarlett Ashford, the beautiful socialite who hires him to accompany her to her father's wedding, could change his mind.

But looks can be deceptive and Jackson is about to fall from a very great height :-)

This scene is when Jackson's asked Scarlett to come to his office so he can return her check to her. After a bit of small talk, she tells him their plan worked and the sleazeball hounding her, who wouldn't take no for an answer, has finally backed off.

Jackson says...

“Glad to have been of assistance.”
The tip of her tongue peeked between her lips. She appeared to be considering her reply. He tried not to focus on her mouth because that brought up all sorts of memories he was trying so hard to forget. Easier said than done.
“Although…” Scarlett paused, and he finally managed to look her in the eye again. “There is one area in which I feel you didn’t quite deliver.”
Shock punched through him. Of all the things he might have imagined Scarlett to say, that had definitely not been on his shortlist.
“I didn’t deliver?” What the fuck was she talking about? As if to mock the way he was trying to obliterate the memories from the weekend, he recalled her breathy gasps and the way her body had quivered when she came.
His dick stirred. Hell. That’s what this was. Pure hell. He should’ve stuffed the check in the mail and left it at that.
 “You promised I would scream. And I didn’t.”

Every good girl loves a very bad boy…
Scarlett Ashford needs a date for her father’s wedding. Only she doesn’t just need a guy in a suit—she needs a bodyguard. The only problem is that Jackson Grayson is big and gorgeous and way too sexy. So much so that Scarlett’s tempted to let this hot bad boy ruin her oh-so-good reputation…

Jackson doesn’t do relationships and he certainly doesn’t sleep with clients. Yet he can’t fight their inconvenient attraction, or how badly he wants Scarlett’s warm and wicked curves against his body. He wants her. Now. Even if it’s just for one night, and even if walking away the next morning isn’t as easy as he thought.

Besides, one hot and incredibly intense night between a bad boy and a pampered princess could never turn into something real…could it?
