Tempting Fate by S.A. Clayton

Title: Tempting Fate
Author: S.A. Clayton
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Light BDSM
Release Date: January 25, 2021
Cover Design: Kari March






Everything with Jade began at Club Temptation, so it makes sense fate would bring us back together here. She looks so incredibly beautiful it takes my breath. So insanely sexy. And from the look in her eyes…she still hates me.

I thought leaving Jade behind six years ago was my only option. I didn’t want to admit how much she meant to me, and I definitely didn’t want to face her brother, my best friend—the man who would have killed me if he found out I was sleeping with his little sister.

But leaving was the worst mistake I ever made.

Yet I’ve returned, and behind all the hatred she claims to have for me, I can see the same desire she had all those years ago. And I plan to use that to my advantage.

She has no idea what I have in store—the ways I plan to tempt her.

Oh, this is going to be fun. 

NOTE: Tempting Fate is a Lady Boss Press book and is connected to Kristen Proby's With Me in Seattle Universe






S.A. Clayton lives in a small town outside of Toronto, Canada with her husband of five years and her scary large collection of books that seem to take over every room.

She has worked on both sides of the publishing industry, both in a bookstore and for actual publishing companies. Although she loved both for different reasons, she found that writing was her true passion and has spent the last few years breaking into the industry as best she can.

She is a lover of all things romance and began her writing journey in her late twenties. Since then, she has immersed herself in the romance genre and couldn't be happier.

When she's not writing or reading, she enjoys binging a great Netflix show (Stranger Things anyone?), baking (because who doesn't love cookies!), and spending time with her family.

Corbin McKenna.
It’s late one night when Hayley Jessup, my best friend’s little sister, shows up on my doorstep looking for her brother. Given the late hour and the tears streaming down her face, my heart trips over itself while my hands fist angrily in my pockets. With her brother preoccupied, I welcome Hayley with open arms and a place to crash. There’s so much I want to know, want to say but if I crossed that line, there would be no going back.

Here I am, on my first blind date, ever, courtesy of a smartphone app and my two annoying best friends.

So what is Chris “Fletch” Fletcher doing, walking across the room, looking at his phone like he’s pattern matching a picture to find a real person he’s never met before?

Oh.

Oh, no.

The guy I drop-kicked in seventh grade cannot be my blind date. The guy who earned me this infernal nickname.

That’s right.

Feisty.

EXCERPT

“Why are you suddenly meddling in my life like you know me? Because you don't,” I inform him, moving closer, one hand rising up, my index finger pointing as I assume a power stance that seems otherworldly. Some self inside me is coming to the forefront. 

And she has something to say. 

Two of the people at his table turn and look at us, then start whispering. Fletch's eyes cut over. 

“Can we talk in private?” he asks. 

“Why? Afraid of being called out in public?” 

“No, but you're about to get a bunch of cellphones pulled out. You really want more recordings of you floating around on the internet?” 

I spin on my heel and move to the hallway in what I think is the direction of the bathrooms. Paleo2Clean is new to me, but before this incarnation, it was a soup restaurant, and before that, a froyo place. 

Yep. Guessed right. High chairs and bathrooms. 

“Look, Fletch,” I say, grabbing his arm hard. “Until our reunion last year, I hadn't seen you in forever. And when Mal and Will chose us both to be in their wedding, I wasn't happy, but I plastered on a fake smile because that's what you do when your friends are getting married and you used to hate one of the groomsmen.” 

“Hate?” A smile tickles his lips, his amusement infuriating me more than any other response he could possibly have. “You,” he says, looking at my hand on his skin, taking a step closer into my space, “hate me?” 

“No. I said I used to hate you. Before I worked on evolving and being a better human being.” 

“How, exactly, have you done that?” 

“By increasing my vibration.” 

“You are a better person because you use vibrators?” 

“Who said anything about sex toys?” 

“You did. Just now.” 

“No, I didn't! I said vibrations!” 

“What's the difference?” 

“Enlightenment!” 

“Pretty sure enlightenment comes from enough orgasms, too, Fiona.” 

An espresso machine hisses in the distance, cutting through the sound of our matched breath. He's inches from me, heat pulsing off his rock-hard body, the close-fitting black cloth of his shirt rippling only because of curved muscle. My hand on his arm feels like heat itself, our bodies some sort of element that conducts energy on a wavelength science hasn't discovered yet. 

And I'm wet, wanting, and so, so confused. 

“Why are you turning this conversation into a sex talk?” I finally choke out, pulling back as he leans in. 

“You started it,” he replies, the smile fading, replaced by something intensely seductive. He bites his lower lip for a moment, looking at me. Then, in a whisper that makes me lean in to hear, he adds, “Maybe you wouldn't hate me so much if I helped you with those vibrations.”
