L.P. Maxa Excerpt: Jaw Dropping

L.P. Maxa

Lincoln Sumner’s life is perfect. He gets to live every man’s dream: He’s in a perpetual state of adolescence working as a baseball coach at St. Leasing Boarding School for Boys. He bags all the chicks he wants, vacations around the world every summer, drives a hot car too fast, and has the best packmates in the world. “Forever” is not in the stars for Linc. Then the gorgeous new school nurse arrives.

Madden West’s life is perfect. Working her dream job as a trauma nurse in short-term gigs all over the world, she lives life on her terms, goes where she wants and does what she wants with whomever she wants to do it. When the opportunity to become the school nurse at St. Leasing falls into her lap, she says, “Sure, why not? Never been to Colorado.” When she meets sexy baseball coach Linc Sumner, she thinks, “There’s my next fling.” Until everything changes and forever is more than a possibility, it’s the reality she was sure she never wanted but now craves.

Get a sneak peek at L.P. Maxa's Jaw Dropping (available September 28, 2017) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

“Have you lost your ever loving mind? You signed that contract Linc, you swore.” Baze pointed down the bar toward Madden. She had her lips wrapped around the mouth of a beer bottle and it was making Linc’s dick rock hard. “She is medical personnel that means she is one hundred percent off fucking limits to you. Pun entirely intended.” Baze was fighting mad. Like nostrils flared, teeth grinding pissed off.

Linc thought Baze was being completely unreasonable. “Come on man, she’s gorgeous.” Linc knew he was whining, but damn if he didn’t care.

“So are ten other girls in here.” Baze crossed his arms over his chest, looking like his usual dark brooding self. “You still have two years left on that contract. You still want to fuck her two years from now? Be my guest.”

Linc narrowed his eyes at his now ex-friend, then glanced over his shoulder at Madden before turning back to Baze. “You’re a dick.”

Baze shrugged and got to his feet. “I’m going to go kick Keller’s ass in darts. But don’t for a second think that I won’t be watching you.” He made the universal watching you gesture with his fingers pointing first at his eyes and then at Linc’s.

Linc looked down the bar again, this time catching Madden’s gaze. He winked at her and she sent him a suggestive smile in return. Yeah. Baze could fuck off. So what if Linc didn’t have his packmate’s permission, so fucking what? It’s not like he woke up every morning and ran into Baze’s room to tell him who he’d fucked the night before. Linc and Madden would just have to keep this friends with benefits thing quiet. Hell, she’d probably love it. There was nothing hotter than doing what you knew you weren’t supposed to.

He took a long pull of his beer. The music coming from the jukebox turned to an old Aerosmith song, “Rag Doll,” one of his dad’s favorites. He watched as Madden grabbed Molly and Corey, dragging them onto the tiny dance floor. The way Madden was moving made him itch to join her. It would give him the perfect excuse to touch her without getting into it with Baze.

Before he could make a move though, some giant douche with a mustache came up behind Madden and started dancing with her. Linc felt a shiver rake through his body. What the hell was that about? He popped his neck and stood, shaking out his arms trying to get his heart rate under control. Then mustache man put his hands on Madden’s hips and Linc felt his chest start to vibrate.

Shit. Was he having a heart attack? What was that noise?

Oh. Fuck. That was him.

That deep vibration was him growling. Growling because a stranger was touching Madden? No. It wasn’t possible. Was it? Nah. He was just feeling possessive because Madden was his new toy and he didn’t want anyone else getting her dirty before he had a chance to play.

I live in Austin, Texas with my husband, daughter, 3 rescue dogs, 1 cat, and one bunny (that doesn't seem to like us). I love reading romance novels as much as I love writing them. I feel like inspiration can come from anywhere; a song lyric, a quote, a weekend with friends. The tiniest things can spark amazing stories.
