Spotlight for SLIM TO NONE by Freya Barker




Since moving to beautiful Cedar Tree, Colorado, Emma Young, mother of one adult daughter, has worked from home doing some online bookkeeping and baking for her best friend's diner to supplement her disability pension. Life has been pretty damn good. That is, until she received a strange phone call that started an alarming chain of events.

Investigator Gus Flemming was hot on the trail of a bail skip with organized crime connections, when he ended up in Cedar Tree. Here the focus of his investigation landed squarely on the gently rounded shoulders of the vivacious red-headed Emma, whose physical limitations have done nothing to dampen her zest for life. 

When it becomes clear that Emma is at risk, Gus doesn't hesitate to step in and protect her. Call it a job with some very hot benefits.....

This book definitely caught my attention from the very beginning! Then I found as I continued on that this was going to be a story that would keep me interested right up until the very end and that is exactly what it did.

This is a beautiful, suspenseful love story about overcoming obstacles and having faith in not only yourself but in others as well. I loved that the characters in this book weren’t the young, hot, rich type. They were just real life people who were a little older and had lived a little but that doesn’t mean that they didn’t haven’t sexual chemistry or hot love scenes because they did. Emma and Gus were both very strong willed and feisty people and I loved that about them.

The twists and turns were many and I couldn’t wait to put it all together in the end. This is a great debut book and I look forward to seeing more books from this Author.



Author Bio:

Freya has always been creative. Involved in music and dance when she was younger, she followed it up with cake design, quilting, and has most recently added cover design. Now the Dutch-born Canadian mother of two has found her voice - writing.

Freya Barker is the pen name for a well-respected reviewer/blogger, to who as an avid reader, the next step to pen a book of her own seemed only natural. 

Driven to make her stories about 'real' people, Freya's characters are perhaps less than perfect, but just as deserving of romance, hot monkey sex and some thrills and chills in their lives!

Excerpt

Grabbing his hand, she allowed him to pull her up and help her into the bedroom. He sat her down on the edge of the bed and kneeled before her with his hands on her thighs. "I almost forgot you were hurt. We should stop." He said regretfully.
"No. I don't want to stop." Emma draped her arms around his neck and pulled him toward her. "I want this. I want you. I'm fine, I promise."
Groaning, Gus leaned his head on her chest. "I promised myself I would give you at least twenty-four hours, darlin'. It hasn't been that. You have a concussion and you're bruised all over. I'm gonna hurt you."
"Please, Gus. I want to feel you. I want to touch your skin."
Not saying anything, Gus stood, stripped his t-shirt off in one swift move and was down to his boxer briefs in no time flat. Finally she could study his gorgeously fit body and the beautifully tattooed designs gracing it. Her eyes traced over the dusting of hair covering the hard planes of his chest and abdomen, leading to the band of his boxer briefs. Leaning forward, her face now at the level of his stomach, she put her open mouth on his stomach, pressing her tongue against his skin. His flavour burst over her tastebuds. Feeling a slight shiver run through him, she wrapped her arms around him; pulled him between her legs and pressed herself against his prominent erection. Sliding her hands down the small of his back, she cupped the swell of his firm ass before pulling down his briefs. With her chin she nudged his waistband down as far as it would go in the front, trailing her tongue down from his navel. Gus' breathing turn erratic, as the fabric of his briefs was caught tight around the head of his cock. Pulling back and looking up, she could see him looking back at her with dark heavy-lidded eyes and parted lips still wet from their kisses. His chest fell and rose fast and shallow. Holding his eyes, she edged forward and very purposely swiped her wet tongue along the rim of the head of his cock through the fabric, causing him to draw back his lips with a quick intake of breath. Again she licked him around the rim, this time following with a slight scrape of her teeth along the same path. A soft growl rumbled from his chest - his fists clenched at his side. Craving the feeling of his length filling her mouth, she relieved his cock from its fabric confinement, barely able to wrap her hand around the base. Then in one big slide, moved her mouth and lips down to engulf him tightly, until he was seated as deep as he could go.

TEASER



EXCERPT


A few hours and half a dozen breaks
later, the living room, dining area, and the kitchen were back to normal, and
Emma was about to fall over from hunger.

"Hey, you hungry?" She called out, not quite sure where Gus went off
to.

"Gettin' there." Was the response coming from the vicinity of the
other end of the hall.

"Gonna make us some sandwiches and a quick soup, that okay?"

"Sounds good to me." Seeing Gus sticking his head around the door of
her bedroom had her drawing in a sharp breath. Her bedroom. Fuck. He's in her
bedroom?

"Erm…need any help in there?" She quickly made her way over to see
how deep his investigative powers went, hoping to God her little bedside
buddies were still in their protective pouches and tucked away nicely.

"Nope. Finding everything just fine, thanks."

Oh no. She could hear it. She couldn't see it yet, but she could hear the
contained laughter in his voice. Cocky bastard has had found something to smile
about. Deep breathing to fight off the blasted perimenopausal flush that was
creeping up her chest again. She made her way around the doorway to find him
sitting on the bed with the contents of all her drawers spread out around
him.

"What are you doing?" She managed to get out.

Eyes sparkling with amusement, the bastard, he looked at her with the edges of
his mouth twitching, like he was fighting a losing battle not to burst out
laughing. He'd better win that battle, or he might find a cane up his arse!

"Picked up everything that was tossed from the drawers onto the floor and
put it on your bed. I was just trying to sort through it to see if I could put
some stuff back for ya."

"Uh huh… and, eh… were you successful?" She ground out, now trying to
hold back on her own grin that was trying to make its way out.

"Sorta…" Gus said, bringing his hands up from beside his legs, where
they seemed to be resting on the bedspread, but instead, were apparently
covering her best little buddies…

"I rescued these from the floor. Is there any particular spot you would like
these?" And with that, Gus let go, bending over laughing,  while
clutching her pink rabbit and her sparkly g-spot stimulator to his stomach,
which, in turn, made Emma loose it.



"I'm really sorry, again." Gus said over lunch. "I probably
should've just stayed out of your bedroom, but I wanted to get a head start
there, so we'd have more time for the office."

"Don't sweat it. Other than it being a tad embarrassing to have you find
my mechanical companions..…" Emma blushed, "…it is what it is. I'm
too old to really give a shit, so there. If you have any lasting issues, well…
Then I guess, that'll be your problem." She looked at him from under her
eyebrows, giving him a little smartass smile.
