Yippee—it’s release time for Taking Over Me, the first book of my Geek Kink series! To help me celebrate, some fantastic friends of mine are gracious enough to give me a hand (A list of them can be found over on my site here: So here’s the blurb and a little snippet (there are four different snippets around the blitz). Be sure to stick around, there’s a giveaway at the end.



He’s everything she didn’t know she needed…

Allison would rather fix computers than worry about sex. That is, until the newest barista in town changes everything. All it takes is one hot stare with his sinful baby blues to remind her she’s not just one of the guys. She has lusty needs only he can fulfill.

Patrick’s coffee shop is on the verge of an epic failure, until Allison takes charge of his computer system. He may not know anything about motherboards, but he does know how to take control—in and out of bed. Now Patrick is determined to get what he wants—Allison in his cuffs. His sensual mastery awakens an intense passion and under his command, he’ll unlock the geek girl’s darkest desires.

Warning: Collars. Cuffs. Clamps. Coffee.

You may never look at your local barista the same way again.


“Alex is my older brother, not my boss. Patrick Conners, at your service.”

Allison took his outstretched hand, her heart jumping at the feel of his skin pressing against hers. “Nice to meet you, Patrick.”

He moved away after the introduction, cleaning the equipment now that the morning rush of customers had abated. The disclosure about the relation to Alex certainly explained a lot. The similarities between the two brothers were evident now that she wasn’t rushed for time. Their builds were similar, as was their height, which appeared to be a few inches more than her five foot seven. However, she didn’t recall Alex’s hair being as dark or glossy as Patrick’s when she’d watched the interview. Their eyes were the same rich blue, but Patrick’s held the specter of something. As if he hadn’t slept well for a few days.

That look was all too familiar to her. Each time she’d gotten lost on a gaming bender, that smudged darkness had greeted her in the mirror the next morning. While she could usually go a few days with little to no sleep, he didn’t strike her as the gamer type. If fact, he appeared to be the clean cut, all-American type who’d routinely ridiculed her all through school. All because she hung out with the members of the math club instead of getting drunk after the Friday night football game.

He was definitely some kind of athlete, she thought. Her two older brothers’ obsession with sports had been imparted on her enough to know Patrick wasn’t tall enough for basketball. Lacrosse, maybe? Possibly even swimming. Those arms were too built to simply pull coffee shots. Football?

Colorful ink flashed under the sleeve of his shirt as he reached for a fresh towel. Tattoos weren’t something she expected to see on someone who appeared to be as straightlaced as Patrick. While Alex’s brother was certainly attractive with his neat haircut and clean-shaven square jaw, he was exactly the type of guy who wouldn’t give her the time of day.
