Dani’s survived a lot of sh*t storms.

Her mother died. Her two sisters loathed her. One aunt hated her. The other was strangely distant, but the worst storm—being dumped by her childhood best friend/high school boyfriend/first love for her younger sister.

There went the one person who was hers and with that, the main reason she stuck around. So, she left for ten years. But now she’s back, and nothing’s the same.

With help from Jonah Bannon, a reformed—kind of—bad boy she remembers from high school, Dani uncovers family secrets that have spanned generations. And along with those, she’s about to face the biggest sh*t storm of her life.

Only this time, she may not survive.

Excerpt

“Why’d you push me earlier?”

“It’s not important.”

But it was. She felt it in her chest. It was so important, and she needed him to say it again. She was salivating for the chance. She wanted to reassure him, and this time she felt it in her heart. She knew she wasn’t going anywhere. She wanted him to see it in her eyes, that she meant every single word.

She whispered now, “Ask me. Ask me again.”

His eyes met hers, narrowing slightly. He was looking into her, reading her.

She was letting him. There was no wall, no hesitation this time. She wanted him to know her, not just her body. All of her. A second passed. He was still searching in her. Another second. More. He waited a full thirty before asking, his voice so soft and tender, “What would you do if you found out another person cared about you? If you mattered to one more person?”

“Nothing.” She was trying to convey her feelings through her eyes. She wanted him to know so badly. “I wouldn’t run. I wouldn’t walk. I wouldn’t hide. I’d do nothing except stand and embrace it.”

His eyes darkened, an emotion passed in them, one that had her heart beating so fast again. “Yeah?” He let go of her hand, but touched the side of her face. He held her in the palm of his hand, and his thumb rubbed over her cheek. It was like he was smoothing away any lingering worries she might have. “What if I was that person?”

She leaned toward him, her eyes going from his lips back to his gaze. Both were pulling her in, making her yearn for more. “Then I’d say, I feel the same.” Her breath held in her throat. They were talking in code, but it was out now. She was telling him how she felt, and a second later, his lips were on hers.

This. She turned, wound her arms around his neck. This was everything.

Release Day: The Auction by J.R. Gray

The Auction release December 1st!

Title: The Auction
Author: J.R. Grazy
Release Date: 12/1/16

Purchase Links

Blurb:

Stark is too old to be selling himself, or his services. He’s too set in his ways, too piled in grief, and well…it’s been too long. But when your best friend is a big demanding drag queen, and hosting the event, it’s impossible to say no. It’s one night, he convinces himself, and then he can get back to his reclusive life.

Scotty can handle the club for one night. It’s Christmas Eve after all, and the auction is for charity. If she saw her ex she could deal with it, she hoped and it wasn’t like she had to bid on anyone. But when she comes back from the bar she finds her best friend had other plans, and now she has a date with a mysterious dominant.

Excerpt:

“Remember boys and girls, this isn’t an auction for sex. You’re paying for a service only.” Pinky paused and then said a little softer. “But I’m not saying you can’t go wherever the night takes you, just had to get the fine print out of the way. Can’t have the cops up my ass…I’d much rather have them on their knees.” She winked and gave a little wave to the police chief sitting in the front row, and the crowd ate it up. Their ‘little’ club was full to the brim for Christmas Eve.
“Shall we get this party started?” Pinky raised the glass in her hand, and the rest of the room joined her.
More cheering, and my stomach flipped. The only thing worse than being a piece of meat on stage was going to be having to spend a night with a stranger. He was not good with strangers.
Pinky started to announce the dominants and submissives to be auctioned. As he said their names and preferred title, they did a lap of the catwalk. Most of them were dolled up or oiled to the max. Stark couldn’t bring himself to let anyone touch him with the stuff. He’d played along and was wearing the typical leather pants. The rest he couldn’t stomach.
“Anderson Stark.”
When his name was called, he moved a hand to smooth out his shirt, forgetting he wasn’t wearing one. “Please god, let no one notice me,” he mumbled as he stepped out under the lights.

About J.R. Gray:

When not staying up all night writing, J.R. Gray can be found at the gym where it's half assumed he is a permanent resident to fulfill his self-inflicted masochism. A dominant and a pilot, Gray finds it hard to be in the passenger seat of any car. He frequently interrupts real life, including normal sleep patterns and conversations, to jot down notes or plot bunnies. Commas are the bane of his existence even though it's been fully acknowledged they are necessary, they continue to baffle and bewilder. If Gray wasn't writing…well, that's not possible. The buildup of untold stories would haunt Gray into an early grave, insanity or both. The idea of haunting has always appealed to him. J.R. Gray is genderqueer and prefers he/him pronouns.

Book Review: The Auction by J.R. Gray

The Auction
Stark is too old to be selling himself, or his services. He’s too set in his ways, too piled in grief, and well…it’s been too long. But when your best friend is a big demanding drag queen, and hosting the event, it’s impossible to say no. It’s one night, he convinces himself, and then he can get back to his reclusive life.

Scotty can handle the club for one night. It’s Christmas Eve after all, and the auction is for charity. If she saw her ex she could deal with it, she hoped and it wasn’t like she had to bid on anyone. But when she comes back from the bar she finds her best friend had other plans, and now she has a date with a mysterious dominant.







The Auction is a short, steamy feel-good story about two lost souls who are brought together through a charity auction. They both have been hurt by love and are struggling to find their way back.

Anderson Stark is a shut-in who hasn't been able to move forward after losing his wife. His best friend convinces him to auction off his Dominate services for charity. Abigail Scott (Scotty) has stayed away from club life after a relationship gone bad. Her roommate/best friend decides it's time for Scotty to move on from her past and bids on Stark unbeknownst to her.

Stark and Scotty are haunted by their pasts and choose to hide in their own way. When brought together they rediscover their kinks in very small baby steps. They both must learn to move past their anxieties to make the relationship work but when one person can't find their footing will their relationship cease?

J.R.Gray packs a lot of punch into this short story. It's got a good mix of kink and resolve! 4 Stars

A perfect pairing

As passion builds, the new lovers are both forced to face their pasts. To have a future, they must find a way to heal the wounds they thought would haunt them forever. 

Perfectly Paired is a heartwarming, feel good, love story with a bit of kink. It's part of the Masters and Mercenaries family. I am addicted to this series, it has action, adventure and kink. The characters are unique and bold. Perfectly Paired is the third book in the Topped series and can be read as a standalone.
Sebastian Lowe is a veteran who had lost his legs while serving overseas. Since he left the service he’s lost more than just his legs but also his longtime girlfriend/fiancĂ© and family. His life has become rigid, he needs control and emotional distance from people. All of that is about to change when Sebastian is recruited to train as part of a D/s couple and he’s partnered with the very attractive but chaotic Tiffany Hayes.  Ian Taggart is back to being the Dom cupid. Now it’s up to Tiffany to find a way to break down Sebastian’s walls and let her in. If that is not enough, Sebastian has double duty protecting Tiffany from her ex who had been making death threats and is scheduled to be released from jail. 
I loved Sebastian and Tiffany.  Tiffany is a strong, warmhearted, feel good character. She’s the perfect yin to Sebastian’s yang. She takes risks while Sebastian chooses to remain in control. “Nothing good comes without risk.”, should be the motto of this story. Tiffany and Sebastian have to take risks with their hearts to find their HEA. 5 Stars!

Blurb:
Five years ago, we’d been together and on fire, but the flames burned us both. Now she’s back in my life and is all my wildest fantasies in the flesh.


I want her. The desire is too powerful to argue against, but I’m not interested in what we had. This is an arrangement about pleasure and finding out who we are behind closed doors. There won’t be talk of love or any sweet nothings whispered by either of us.


This time, I’ll control the heat between us and make sure neither of our hearts get too close to the flames.
