A New Review

New Review for Indulging Her Fantasy

★★★★

By Micheale Potter on July 1, 2015

I will say that this author does a FABULOUS job developing her character and taking you on this journey of discovery without making it cheesey or unbelievable. I would definitely read another book written by Cara in the future.

5 Star Review for Indulging Her Fantasy

★★★★★

Karen Hrdlicka, June 29, 2015

I recently met Ms. Addison at a book signing and was intrigued by her books. This is the first book of hers I have read, and I was not disappointed. From the first chapter I was fascinated by Aurora. Her character is very well developed, right from the start. She is a no nonsense, take charge kind of woman, who has worked her way up to the top of the corporate ladder in the fashion world. She is tough and knows exactly what she wants in the boardroom. She runs her company with strength and compassion, illustrated by helping an older employee when is wife is ill. I love a strong female lead in a book and Ms. Addison balances her strength with her care for others and just a trace of vulnerability.

Aurora’s relationship with her man, Nicholas, is off the charts. While she is take charge in the boardroom, in the bedroom she needs to have someone else in control. While there may be a financial imbalance in their relationship, in the bedroom they are more than equal. While Nicholas may be a bit of a control freak, he loves Aurora deeply and the level of trust they share is amazing. Nicholas works for the Yankees organization and recruits sponsors for the team. He and Aurora share a love of sports and a wonderful sexual chemistry.

While the couple has a complete and active sex life, after coming across a bukkake film one evening, the couple has an argument. Aurora is disgusted by the act and Nicholas is intrigued. However, Aurora ultimately becomes fascinated by the idea, causing her many conflicting feelings. Once she confesses her fantasy to Nicholas they set about making it a reality. The amount of trust that the couple has is only surpassed by the love they share. It takes a tremendous amount of both for the couple to embark on that journey.

I will definitely read more works by Ms. Addison. Her writing style and character development are strong and tight. The story is well paced and very sensual. Her women are strong and go toe-to-toe with the strong men she creates. I anxiously anticipate my next read from Cara Addison.

Another Cover Reveal Contest

Whoot! It’s exciting enough to be celebrating the release of Beyond The Chute today, but Siren Bookstrand is giving me twice as much to cheer about.

Today, I’m revealing the cover for The Guardian.

Blank bookcover with clipping path

 

WIN a signed ebook copy of ‘Fortuitous Pen’ plus ‘Going The Distance’ plus ‘Unwanted Attention

This contest is open to anyone in the US and Canada, and here’s how you can participate: Just share this post on Facebook (and mark your shared post “public”) or retweet this tweet. Three Twitter winners will be chosen randomly, and three Facebook winners will be chosen randomly.

The contest ends Sunday, July 5, at 8:00pm Eastern Daylight Time. You’ve got all weekend to rally your friends and followers.

Below you can find a blurb for the book, but if you haven’t read Fortuitous Pen or Going The Distance, or Unwanted Attention, I suggest you pick up a copy. While each novel stands on their own, following Brett and Austin’s journey lends depth to the story.

With the sun not only setting on summer, but also on the fourth year of Brett and Austin Tanner’s relationship, the couple couldn’t be happier. With a young son and a daughter, they’re enjoying life together in the affluent suburb of Old Greenwich, Connecticut while Brett continues working at Goldman Sachs in Manhattan.  When Austin takes on a new writing project during her pregnancy with their third baby, she readies herself for a challenging few months.

Woken in the middle of the night, the startling news of a fatal car accident sends Brett’s world spinning out of control.  Overwhelmed with heartache and sorrow, Brett is unable to cope with his grief. Baby Gederick joins the Tanner circle when Brett and Austin are appointed as the Guardian to the little boy who is a physical reminder of the dear friends they’ve lost.  Struggling to cope, Brett’s behaviors leave Austin with a house full of children to care for as she works to help the love of her life deal with both his obligations and his pain.

Loyalty and unconditional love persevere as this sexy and successful couple weather the challenges of life, love, loss, and marriage.

Here’s what readers are saying about Addison’s writing of Brett and Austin.

★★★★★  Wow I didn’t think that it was going to be better but pleasantly surprised that it was.  Still struggling with outside issues but their love for each other stands out, great humour, huge amount of hot erotic scenes nicely written, absolutely brilliant story.

★★★★★  Austin and Brett have grown and become more enjoyable every step of the book, they learn to deal with family, friends and coworkers. Cara writes very strong characters and you want the HEA for them. If you like a wonderfully told romance, with believable people that have an extraordinarily healthy sex life. Hit the button this one is all of that and a piece of cake! I will be adding Cara Addison to my favorite authors!

★★★★★  This book has it all – exotic travel, engaging storyline, believable characterisations; Addison has subtly built a distinct world capable of pulling you in with before you even know it. It was a pleasure to grow with the characters as they matured and developed (while still enjoying a very healthy sex life). Anyone that loves romance with a bit of extra spice will enjoy this read – especially the happy ending.

When can you get your copy of The Guardian? This steamy, contemporary erotica novel will release on July 30, 2015. It will be available for pre-order on July 15th.

The Marshmallow vs. The Well Aged Steak

I was thinking this morning about the difference between dating a much younger guy versus a mature man and it immediately reminded me about this excerpt from my first novel.  In Passion, Power, and Privilege, Kate (42) is on her first date with Brad (50) and he’s expressing his concern for a mutual friend who has dated a string of not-so-smart younger women.

“This is the third very young lady he’s dated since his divorce.”

As he continued to clear the pool table, Kate questioned, “Do you remember eating marshmallows as a kid?”

He peered intently at her, wondering what on earth Thomas’s dalliances possibly had in common with marshmallows.

Undaunted, Kate continued, “Don’t you remember that as a kid, you could pile back the marshmallows? There were never enough?” She paused as he took another shot, and continued when he looked up at her, desperately seeking the logic in her explanation.

“Now, try and remember the last time you had a marshmallow as an adult. I’m willing to bet it was over a campfire,” she said as she walked to her wine glass on the sidebar and took another sip, “You savor every bite of the first marshmallow you’ve had in years. It’s pretty good, right?” Brad nodded in response, re-chalking his cue, still holding a quizzical look on his face. “You try another bite. It’s good, but not nearly as satisfying as you remembered. You eventually try a third bite, but you’re done.” Kate paused. “They aren’t at all like you remembered.”

Brad laughed as he said, “Are you comparing Marci, or Macie,” he quickly corrected, “to a marshmallow?”

“My point is,” Kate continued as she walked back to where he stood at the pool table, “is that soon…very soon, Thomas is going to realize that the marshmallow he remembers is really just an unsatisfying piece of puffed-up sugar and gelatin, and that if he’s going to cook over a campfire, he’d much prefer a well-aged steak.”

Here is my Interview with Cara Addison

This week, I sat down with Fiona McVie for an interview.  Here’s what she asked…

A little about your self `ie your education Family life etc 

 I’m a genuine extrovert.  I love being with people.  I find that talking about ideas and projects energizes me.  I’m also a fairly ambitious person.  Professionally, I’m the CEO of a non-government agency.  I absolutely love my job and I find it a rush to be out meeting people instead of sitting behind my desk.  I studied business in school, and have added two Masters degrees to the wall since university.

I’m the mother of two beautiful girls (7 & 10, thanks for asking).  They’re involved in all kinds of activities.  I wish they could stay this age forever.  Their independent enough to not need me every second of the day, but they’re carefree and full of joy.  As an added bonus, they still love me and want to spend time with me.  I’m sure that will change in the next 5 years. 

Fiona: Tell us your latest news?  

Well, today I’m celebrating the release of ‘Indulging Her Fantasy’ while simultaneously revealing the cover for ‘Unwanted Attention’.  


Fiona: When and why did you begin writing?

The Story Behind The Story: Indulging Her Fantasy

ca-indulgingherfantasy-fullAs always, there is a story behind the writing of each story. This book is no exception.

It never occurred to me to write a story about a woman’s journey of discovery as it relates to participating in a bukkake. Here’s how it came about…
Without Dave, this book would not have been written. When David pitched the idea of a full-length novel about a bukkake to me, the unique story of a woman’s journey of sexual self-discovery gripped my attention. As I pondered the idea of a story that explored a confident and capable woman’s willingness to participate in a bukkake, I knew this book had to be written.
Dave is a reviewer. He came across one of my other novels and offered to review it. When he had finished reading the book, he sent me an email to let me know a review had been posted.
Dave added to the email by saying,

“There is an idea I have had that I thought would make for a “new frontier” of sorts for erotic storytelling. Beware, it’s a bit extreme….”


He went on to explain there was a shortfall of authentic full length stories on the subject.

“There are bukkake short stories on E-books that are written by women & they’re available at Amazon.com. Typically, they’re about naive women in their young 20s who are down-on-their-luck and desperate to make some quick $$.”

My first reaction on that Sunday afternoon was a little like Aurora’s. Shock. Then, my wheels started turning as a flow of story began to take shape in my mind. An hour after reading Dave’s thoughts, I sent a reply.

“Your book concept is an interesting one. Those are the type of ideas that rattle around in my mind and I end up toning down for a universal audience.
Most women are repulsed by the idea of a bukkake because they are being used for someone else’s pleasure. If the pleasure can be shown as mutual, the story becomes very powerful.
The heroine’s exploration into her own pleasure could be highly erotic. It could start with a solo act with her partner that escalates to a three-some as she explores her own desires.
There is no limit to where it goes from there.
Writing the backstory as to why, would be easy. It’s not uncommon in the corporate world to get a little bored at times. You’ve broken the glass ceiling and when there’s no new challenge, it’s easy to get blasé.
For me, it’s why I started writing. I needed a new personal challenge. In this case, the heroine may not realize it, but this is her new personal challenge. A new rush. Her new high.
I’m certainly not prepared to jettison your idea. There’s something there if written properly.”

I started writing Indulging Her Fantasy the very next day.
Dave, for your suggestions, input, and feedback, I am deeply grateful. They have made this fictional writing as authentic as it can be. This book, is dedicated to you.

While each novel stands on their own, following Brett and Austin’s journey lends depth to the story.  ***Spoiler Alert*** A fourth novel has been written and will be available end of summer.

Austin’s writing career attracts unwanted attention when a delusional fan erroneously believes a fictional piece of writing is about their future lives together. Brett’s concern over the escalating attention from a cyberstalker has him rallying friends and family to join together to protect Austin and baby Ella.

After months of gathering evidence, Austin finally has her day in court where drama rises to a new level when Austin takes the stand.

STORY EXCERPT

ca-indulgingherfantasy-fullStepping quietly in the door of the five-story brownstone on the upper west side, Aurora slipped off her heels, set down her bag and quietly hung her overcoat in the closet. She made her way up the stairs toward the second floor living room where Nicholas spent most of his time.

Nicholas’ stomach flip-flopped when he saw Aurora standing in the entryway. She never ever failed to take his breath away.

“I love you,” she said quietly.

“You’ve had a long day,” he said softly as he took in the sight of her slight frame. At five-foot, five inches she appeared unassuming. After almost two years together, he knew better.

“A little longer than usual,” she conceded.

He gave her an admonishing look. “You were out the door before I was awake, Aurora. It’s almost ten p.m.”

She sighed heavily and then smiled weakly. “There’s lots on the go this week,” she said nonchalantly.

“I know. Quarterly earnings week.”

“Amongst other things.”

He studied her face as she lingered in the doorway, delicately swinging her designer slingback heels loosely from her fingers. There was something in her voice that made up for the obvious fatigue. “Are you heading to bed?”

She shook her head.

He felt his throat thicken with desire. “Would you like to come and sit with me?” he asked huskily.

“Yes,” she said quietly before leaving her perch to proceed across the expansive room.

The strain of the day was visible on her face as she sat down on the sofa next to him. She tucked her delicate feet up underneath her and leaned into the ample cushions.

He knew she would decline but asked her anyway. “Do you want to talk about your day?”

She exhaled slowly. She desperately wanted to share the exciting news of F-Five’s bid to take over Mayberry but knew she couldn’t. Confidentiality was too important on this deal. “No,” she said reluctantly. “I wish I could, but I can’t.”

A wry smile slowly crossed his lips. “Wanna fuck about your day?”

She smiled bashfully. “Yes.”

“Oh babe, you have no idea how much that means.” He leaned forward and pressed his lips against her cheek. “You need me, don’t you?” he whispered as his fingers delicately pushed the thick brunette curls back from her beautiful face.

“Yes,” she finally admitted. There was something about the way Nicholas touched her that melted away her cares. She felt the tension and stress of the day melt as Nicholas’ hands travelled her body, slowly removing one piece of clothing after another. When she was completely nude, she watched as he purposefully removed his clothing. Watching him disrobe with the intention of pleasing her was deeply arousing. The ache between her legs was unbearable as he finally knelt in front of her.

“Have you been telling people what to do all day?” he asked knowingly.

“All day long,” she murmured as his lips brushed against her neck. The rich leathery scent of his cologne filled her nostrils as he leaned over her, pressing his hard cock between her legs, releasing warm fluid from her pussy.

He leaned back and looked her in the eye. “Are you going to tell me what to do?” he asked pointedly.

She shook her head. “No.”

“Good girl,” he said eagerly. He had made it clear early in their relationship that he absolutely despised being told what to do, especially in bed. He would not tolerate her commands to perform to satisfy her whims. She had willingly obliged. She gave orders and commands all day long at the office. He was the last person she wanted to be telling what to do and how to do it, especially in bed.

ADULT EXCERPT

He delicately pushed her knees apart. “Let me fuck you the way I know you need it, Aurora.”

A soft whimpering moan escaped her lips as he leaned forward. She held her breath as his cock pressed against her pussy, sliding easily inside. At a glance, some might call his cock average. It wasn’t enormous nor was it small. Aurora knew better. There was nothing average about Nicholas. She exhaled slowly as his cock sunk deep inside her. Oxygen evaded her lungs as he slowly pressed deep and hard until his flesh pressed against her damp and swollen pussy.

He slowly and methodically thrust against her while watching her writhe and listening to her moan as each delicate sensation fluttered through her body. His cock throbbed as she held his gaze. He desperately wanted to fuck her hard and fast but he knew that was no way to fuck someone like Aurora. It was three months into the relationship and he was on the brink of losing her when he learned a valuable lesson. He had naïvely assumed that someone is professionally aggressive as Aurora needed to be fucked aggressively, too. He knew now how wrong he had been. With so much of her day focused on maintaining control, he learned that when she was with him, he was the one that needed to take charge. He felt it was his personal responsibility to take away her cares and to give her back everything that had been demanded of her during the day. It was incredibly arousing for him to watch her stresses melt away as he so gently and tenderly loved her.

He could see the familiar signs that she was nearing the release that she so desperately needed. He ran his hands up the milky white skin of her toned calves until they came to rest on her knees. As he delivered a long slow thrust, he pressed down on her legs, spreading her knees wide. He felt his cock lurch as she let out a scream of delight. He held her knees firmly against the cushions as he delivered another firm press, burying his cock deep inside her glistening pussy. Her back arched as she let out a moan. As he thrust one more time, he leaned heavily against her and whispered his wish for her. “Come,” he urged.

She gripped the sofa tightly in her long delicate fingers and let out a cry as her body contorted under the weight of his. Like an earthquake, seismic waves of pleasure crashed through her body. Surge after surge of delight rippled from her core, through her torso, and out to each extremity. As the torrent of pleasure subsided, she opened her eyes. Her entire body relaxed as she slumped against the plush pillows that surrounded her. Nicholas still knelt between her legs, his cock buried deep inside her still throbbing pussy. His expression of pride in pleasing her made her feel safe and comfortable.

He leaned in and softly kissed her lips for the first time that evening. “Is that what you needed?”

She could barely speak. Her voice trembled as she nodded and said, “Yes. You’re exactly what I needed.”

“That’s what I want to hear,” he whispered between kisses. He pressed his damp lips against her cheek and then her neck, feeling the racing heartbeat of her jugular. “Do you want more?”

She desperately wanted more. She pushed him back ever so slightly to look into his captivating green eyes. She nodded slowly, not wanting to appear too eager.

“Say it,” he urged.

“Yes,” she whispered softly.

He wasn’t letting her off so easily. “Tell me what I’m going to do to you, Aurora.”

His face was just inches from hers and he was still firmly planted between her knees. “You’re going to fuck me,” she said quietly.

He knew the answer before he even asked the question. “Slow and intense like I just fucked you?”

Her response was immediate. She shook her head.

“What am I going to do?” he asked earnestly as his fingers brushed her cheek.

There wasn’t a hit of memory from her day at the office in her thoughts as she answered. “You’re going to fuck me hard, Nicholas. You’re going to pound that hard cock into my pussy until it hurts,” she said hurriedly.

His balls suddenly ached for her. He leaned forward and bit her neck in anticipation of what was to come. “I’m going to give you exactly what you need, sweetheart.”

She squealed as he marked her neck. She knew she would be wearing a scarf for a few days to hide the fresh bite marks.

“Am I going to keep fucking you here?” he asked as he kissed his way around her breasts.

“No,” she said emphatically as she imagined where she wanted him. “You want me upstairs.”

“In our bed?”

“Yes,” she whispered hoarsely.

He scooped her up and together they ascended the stairs to the fourth floor where the master bedroom, bath, and closets occupied the entire floor. The room was dimly lit by a set of Taylor Llorente floor lamps in the corner of the luxuriously decorated space. Aurora loved the space. It was warm and inviting she felt at home in this room. She stood in the doorway and inhaled deeply before slowly exhaling. She could feel her shoulders relax as Nicholas took her hand and led her across the hardwood floor. She wasn’t sure if it was the cool night air or the anticipation of Nicholas’ devoted attention that made her a shiver run through her body. As she reached the edge of the bed she had an overwhelming need for him to take her. She faced the mattress, folded back the covers, and laid her torso flat against the sheets. She heard Nicholas audibly murmur at the site of her bent over in front of him.

He stood behind her and pressed his thighs up against the back of her legs as he leaned forward and whispered, “is this what you need Aurora?”

“Yes,” she said emphatically. She could feel his large warm hands on the smooth skin of her ass, gently kneading and caressing her firmly toned bottom. “Please Nicholas,” she said with urgency. “You know what I need.”
