We are so please to introduce brand new author Mia Storm with her debut release, Getting Dirty.
Releasing on March 19th
A poem by Blaire Leon
If sex is dirty, why would I do it with someone I love?
If sex is dirty, then didnât we all come from the dirt?
What if I like the dirt?
What if I want to get dirty?
What if I want to roll in the mud until Iâm so fucking filthy that Iâll never be clean again?
When twenty-five-year-old graduate assistant Caiden Brenner asked Blaire Leon how old she was, she said she was a senior. He chose to believe she meant in college. They connect over Lord Byronâs Don Juan and, as their conversations become increasingly thicker with sexual innuendo, Caiden finds himself obsessing over a totally off-limits undergrad whoâs bold, beautiful, brilliant, and one of the most passionate poets heâs ever met.
But it turns out Blaire hasn't been totally honest. She's the seventeen-year-old valedictorian of her high school class, taking courses at Sierra State while awaiting her acceptance to Stanford.
Will Caiden get too deeply into Blaire to back away before he finds out the truth? Or will their connection be enough to seduce him into risking his entire future on Jail Bait?
"A thousand and one feels....Getting Dirty is a thrilling, tantalizing forbidden romance you do not want to miss! I not only devoured this book, it devoured me right back!"--Katy Evans, New York Times Bestselling author of REAL
âWhat year are you?â I donât even realize Iâve said it until itâs out of my mouth.
Her eyes flick from the book to mine. âA senior.â
I feel my eyebrows arch before I can stop them. âYou look younger.â
She bites her lips between her teeth for a moment. âIs that good or bad?â
âNeither, I suppose.â But my insides burn, knowing that sheâs not as off-limits as I originally thought. Itâs nearing the end of January. Commencement will be here soon enough. She graduates and all bets are off.
âSoâ¦â she says, twisting a finger into the ends of her hair. âI know you like old, dead poets. How do you feel about hearing something fresher?â
I lean toward her. âSuch as?â
âIâm reading in a poetry slam tonight. Itâs just something over at Tinoâs in Jonestown on the fourth Friday of every month. Thereâs no prize money or anything, but I perform something new pretty much every month.â
âA poetry slamâ¦â I want to say yes in the worst way, but it feels dangerously like a date.
She must read the hesitation in my eyes. âIf itâs too weird, no worries. I just thought, since you like poetryâ¦â
She leaves the thought dangling. Like a noose. And I jump right into it. âYeah. Why not?â
The answer to that rhetorical question is that itâs not May yet and she hasnât graduated. Iâm risking everything Iâve worked the last three years toward. My entire future. But the voice of reason is being drowned out by the raging waves of something rolling up from the deepest layers of my being like an undertow. Something base and essential. And unrelenting.
âDo you want to meet me there?â she asks, standing from her seat and giving me a better view of the entire exquisite length of her.
âYeahâ¦thatâs probably best.â Plausible deniability. No, Dr. Duncan, I didnât have any clue sheâd be there. Just went to hear the poetry.
âGreat,â she says as she gathers her book and shoves it in her bag. âIt starts at nine. There are usually five or six poets and itâs a random draw, so I donât know what time Iâll be reading.â
I nod without standing, no longer able to tame my erection. âIâll be there at nine.â
âYou know where Tinoâs is?â
Electricity crackles under my skin. Iâm really doing this. âYeah. Iâll find it.â
