VBT: SPOTLIGHT, GUEST POST, & GIVEAWAY - TAKING OVER ME BY. SARA BROOKES


TAKING OVER ME (Geek Kink-Book 1)
*BY*
*SARA BROOKES*

BLURB:

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 both 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.



Excerpt:

“Impressive.” A line formed between his eyebrows as he frowned. He leaned forward, peeking over the gold bar that ran the length of the knee wall. “Good-sized crowd down there. And we’re the only ones up here. Is that normal?”

She led him to a row, sitting in the center seat. “It is if you know the projectionist. Gamer buddy of mine, Cooper, puts on these festivals once a month, a different theme each time. Most of the time the movies are older, classic Hollywood. Bogey and Bacall. The Rat Pack. John Wayne. This month he picked Hitchcock.”

“An extraordinary storyteller.”

“I agree. We tend to sit up here because while crowds have their place, a lot of people tend to dilute the sound quality.”

Patrick smirked. “Well now, that makes sense. Movie buffs would go for where the sweet spot is in the theater.”

“We tend to be creatures of habit, sadly.” She shrugged off the light sweater she’d worn to keep the chilly spring night air off her bare shoulders. Comprehension sank in at something he’d said. She turned to find him smiling almost expectantly. “Wait a second. You know about the sweet spot?”

His smile widened, melting her insides a little. Great, as if I wasn’t already infatuated enough, he has to flash that intoxicating grin.

“My life isn’t just about coffee and tea, Allison. I may not be as technologically savvy as you are, but there are a few things I can hold my own with.” His voice dropped a bit as he leaned over the padded armrest. “And just for clarification purposes, I know about quite a few sweet spots.”



GUEST POST

When I started writing stories for my friends when I was younger, I never imagined Id be sitting where I am today. Taking Over Me is my fifteenth published story. Little did I know my eleventh grade English teacher would prove to be such a strong influence on my writing career. Eleventh grade is the year research papers are written before they shove you off to college to fend for yourself. 

We were given free rein with our topics as long as we presented a well-researched, well thought out paper.Because it was a hot button topic at the top, I chose to write my paper about Margarethe Cammermeyer. She was one of the first women in the military to openly admit her sexual orientationand was discharged from the military because of it. She became a gay rights activist and ultimately won her case, with the judge ruling her discharge had been unconstitutional.

After a lot of research and utter disappointment from the actions I learned were taken against her, I turned in my paper. I earned an A+ on that paper, but it wasnt simply the grade that inspired me. I learned quite a bit about standing up for what something that you believe in. My English teacher wrote a long note on the back page, adding her own thoughts and ideas about the case. And also adding that she knew I would go far with me writing.

I dont think either of us knew just how far back then.
