Unexpectedly Yours by author Michelle RothBook Description

Elle Thomas has had a crush on Jim Conroy for months now. Among their small circle of friends, they’re the only two single people left. It makes sense that he might gravitate toward her at social events, and maybe even flirt a little bit, right? Elle can’t help but want more, though.

Jim may be going insane. He’s been chasing Elle for months. He’s flirted with her, asked her out, and done everything else he could think of to get her attention short of skywriting his feelings. When Elle finally agrees to go out with him, things quickly heat up between them.

What starts out as a single spark of attraction between them quickly burns out of control. As they settle into the beginnings of a relationship, one moment will change their lives forever. Is their relationship strong enough to survive when reality sets in?

 Character Interview

Character Interview: James Conroy

1) Please describe your character. Then answer the rest of the questions from his or her point of view.
James Conroy. 6’3 and BUILT.  Light mocha skin, 5 o’clock shadow. Short hair. Think Shemar Moore-esque.
2) It’s Saturday afternoon and you have no particular place to go. What do you do with your time? And what do you wear while doing it?
Usually on Saturdays, I’m hitting the gym and then catching up on yard work. Once that’s done, I usually hang out with Deacon or Chris. There’s always a sporting event somewhere.
3) When and with whom did you have your first kiss? Briefly describe it.
Jennifer Wallace. In sixth grade, and it was awkward. Thankfully I’ve had time to practice since then. I’m pretty sure I had no idea what the hell I was doing.
4) How old were you when you lost your virginity? What kind of experience was it?
Amy Lowenbrau. I was 15 and she was 16. It was brief. That’s when I realized that I was quite.. uh.. large. And that some women might not be able to accommodate that.  Let’s move on?
5) What is your favorite food? Is there any food you hate?
I try to eat clean, so I’d love to say it’s chicken and brown rice but it isn’t. I love a nice juicy steak with bleu cheese crumbles on top. I absolutely hate kale. It’s just gross.
6) What’s your favorite sexual position? Why?
Woman on top. She controls the motion so I know she’s enjoying herself. Plus I’m a breast guy, so …
7) What’s the craziest place you’ve ever had sex?
I’m a fairly traditional guy, for the most part. I have this hammock in my back yard I’d like to try out though…
8) What do you wear to bed?
Nothing. It just twists and annoys me.
9) If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Between running a company and all of the other social obligations, I never have enough down time. I’d love to be able to just sit down and read a book, ya know? I’d learn how to say no to people. That’s what I’d change.
10) What’s your best feature?
I’m loyal. I think that’s really important. The world is full of some pretty crappy people. It’s good to know who’s really on your team.
11) What are your pet peeves? 
People who chew with their mouths open. Drives me insane.

Adult Excerpt

Standing up now, he moved toward her. He’d been watching her mess with the hem of her dress since she’d arrived. He’d been getting small, tantalizing glimpses of her smooth thighs for the better part of an hour now. She was driving him crazy and seemed to have no idea.

She got off the couch now, smiling, and said, “I had almost given up on dinner.”

He pulled her into his arms and asked, “Would you mind putting off dinner a few minutes? I’ve got something I need to take care of.”

Looking at him curiously now, she said, “Oh?”

He nodded and the leaned down to take her mouth with his. Nibbling her bottom lip gently, he mumbled, “Super important.”

When she sighed against his lips, he deepened the kiss. As tongue swept into her mouth to tangle with hers, he stroked his hand down her back to press her even closer to him. His hands moved down to settle on the curves of her ass. He immediately heard a low moan in the back of her throat and felt himself harden.

Breaking his mouth away from hers, he trailed his lips down the side of her throat, pressing soft, biting kisses against her neck. When he gently sucked on the patch of flesh where her neck and shoulder met, he felt her shudder slightly against him. She pressed closer and rolled her hips against him.

Groaning, he pulled his mouth away from her shoulder and said, “Every time you messed with the hem of your dress, it gave me this overwhelming desire to bury my face between your thighs. Would you mind?”

He felt her sharp intake of breath, then a moment later she laughed and said, “Literally anytime you want to, I can make myself available for that.”

With a groan, he captured her mouth with his again. The kiss grew wild, quickly. Her hands slid around his waist and up his back. She pulled him until he was flush against her. The only thing that separated them was clothing and he had every intention of correcting that particular issue very soon.

He moved them slowly back toward his desk and sat her on the edge, pushing the skirt of her dress up. Standing between her thighs now, he pulled back from the kiss. Pressing his lips to her throat again, he began swirling his tongue against her skin.

He cupped one breast in his palm and felt her nipple pebble under his touch as he moved his fingers against it. He continued to massage her breast gently with his palm until he heard her breathing increase slightly. He moved his hand lower to the damp heat between her thighs and discovered that the filmy lace was soaked.

On a groan, he sank to his knees. Helping her shift, he pulled the panties down her legs and slid them over the heels she wore. He stared at her now and felt another wave of lust hit him. He could see the evidence of her arousal against the now bare lips of her pussy.

He used his thumb and forefinger to spread her open and leaned forward. Running his tongue in a circular motion around her swollen clitoris, he heard her sharp intake of breath. When he slid two fingers into her tight channel, she gave a moan.

Pumping them into her with a steady rhythm, he shifted his mouth slightly, making direct contact with her clit for the first time. He felt her flutter around his fingers as she cried out. Working his fingers against her, he rubbed the flat of his tongue in time with the press of his hand.

She was whimpering with each stroke of his tongue and he could feel her tightening and fluttering around his fingers.
