Now I turn the spotlight on my smart and sexy book…

Last year, I had this idea to do a series based on three men, who all sit as members on the board of directors of Advantage Insurance Company. All three guys are extremely good-looking (of course – these are romance stories :)), at the top of their game in their careers and single – for their own reasons. Each man has his own book and love interest, but you will see John Dorsey, Greg Snow and Mark Olson in all three books… in some respect. After many mishaps on my way to completing the third book in the series, I finally submitted and went under contract with Evernight Publishing for the third and final book in this Taking Advantage series. Since the third book, Board Indiscretion, will be out in November, I thought I’d highlight the first two books in the series for those of you that are unfamiliar with the members of Advantage Insurance Company’s hot and sexy board of directors.

First up is Board Stiff – Book 1, which was an Evernight Publishing Editor’s Pick, as well as a Top Pick at Night Owl Reviews. (You can click on the covers to find the link to purchase.)

John Dorsey’s life is good. He is the owner of Dorsey Construction. He’s the youngest person on the board of directors for Advantage Insurance Company. He lives on the beach. And he knows he can have any woman he wants. John’s got the world at his fingertips… except he’s yet to find a woman that stimulates both his body and mind.

Elizabeth Wright worked hard in a large Tampa law firm making a name for herself, but it came at the expense of her personal life. When Advantage Insurance Company offers her a job as corporate counsel, Elizabeth cannot turn it down. The thought that she can have a successful legal career and a life excites and intimidates her.

But when their worlds collide one day in the Advantage board room, neither Elizabeth nor John knows what’s hit them. All they know is they can’t stay away from each other.

Here’s what Chris from Night Owl Reviews had to say about John Dorsey and Elizabeth Wright:

John Dorsey is a dream come true. Aggressive and not afraid to ask for he wants, he enters the picture like a tornado and sweeps Elizabeth right off her feet. Their first meeting gave me the tingles and it just gets better from there. Both are at the top of their game in their respective fields and both can have their pick of partners. Elizabeth is initially put off at John’s coarse handling but her inner secret submissive self finds it intriguing. Sure she’s in control at work, but why not cut loose with John? How hot is it that they want each other and don’t let conventional relationship rules get in the way?

This is a quick read and doesn’t try to be more than that. The author starts off fast and it just goes faster. I was totally into the chemistry and sex that John and Elizabeth generate together and happy with the optimistic ending as well as the clues that Elizabeth was different for John right from the start. I really look forward to the next story in this series. – 4 1/2 stars

Next up is Board Approved – Book 2, which was my first tackle of the May-December romance between a hard-working lawyer and a young yoga instructor.

After his divorce, Greg Snow dedicated his life to his work as a corporate attorney in a large law firm and as a member of the board of directors of Advantage Insurance Company. He liked it that way… at least that’s what he thought until Tessa Mills entered his life.

Growing up with an alcoholic mother and never knowing her father, Tessa Mills has not had an easy life. And her relationship decisions have been less than stellar. But she’s finally making a life for herself and running her own business – a yoga studio. It’s her saving grace and that’s all she needs… until Greg Snow turns her world upside down.

Tessa and Greg have a strong attraction, but is it enough to overcome all their differences?

Here’s what Melissa from Romancing the Book had to say about Greg Snow and Tessa Mills:

 Board Approved is the second book in the Taking Advantage series by Jessica Jayne. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. I chose this book because after reading the summary I just had to know how it turned out.

Greg Snow is corporate attorney in a large law firm and a member of the board of directors at Advantage Insurance Company. He is happy with is life as it was until he stumbles across Tessa Mills. She manages to turn his life upside down for the best. Tessa owns her own yoga studio and works at different business giving yoga lessons.

When Tessa and Greg meet, you could practically see the sparks fly. I loved that Greg made a spilt second decision and it changed his life for the better. It does make you think of all the decisions that we make in our lives, and how life can change in a second.

This book was well written with fascinating and lifelike characters. Two characters from the first book make an appearance. At 49 pages, this is one hot and sexy quick story. Overall, this was a great story. – 4 stars – Lovely Rose – An enjoyable read. I would recommend.

And last but not least will be Board Indiscretion – book 3, which will tell the story of Mark Olson and Suzannah McCormick and will be coming out this November! Here’s my inspiration for Mark and Suzannah:

56f5113088143efaf7c17d6164eb48a2 <> on May 20, 2009 in Sydney, Australia.

And here’s a short excerpt from Board Indiscretion. Mark is sitting at his favorite bar sipping on some whiskey to help wash away a long day at work and his struggle over what to do with his desire for Suzannah:

A familiar giggle wafted in from the direction of the dance floor. The delicate sound stirred his cock to life. It stiffened against his black trousers instantly. After several weeks of clandestine meetings involving dirty talk and hard fucks, he’d know that giggle anywhere. He’d heard it many times afterwards when they lay tangled in each other’s limbs. Turning his head in the direction of the dance floor, anger heated his face and his hands clenched into fists on the bar top at the sight he witnessed.

Sandwiched between two guys that he’d now refer to as dickheads, danced the woman that wreaked havoc on his single life status. Her little black dress clung to her trim frame, emphasizing her small, but very perky breasts and showing off her figure that could easily grace the cover of any fashion magazine. Her legs stretched for miles and her creamy white skin contrasted nicely against the jet black of her dress. Flinging her silky blonde hair over her shoulder and down her back, her pink Pursecase carrying her iPhone dangled from her wrist as her hips gyrated against her two dance partners. The taller man dancing behind her slipped his hand over her hip and rested it over her low belly as he rubbed what Mark was sure to be a rock hard erection against Suzie’s ass.

What the fuck was she doing?

First, she never came to the Beach Club. Never. In all his regular visits to this club over the last couple of years, he had yet to see her in here once. Not once! Second, she was practically dry-humping two guys in the middle of the dance floor. That wasn’t her typical style.

    Not sure if this is what you meant…or whether we were supposed to guess what happens after the blurb…..if it’s after I’d imagine he’d walk over and start a fight 🙂

    Well done on being top picks! I would have him saunter on to the dance floor with narrowed eyes, never looking away from her. Then when he is a few feet away, she sees him looking at her. He holds back a smile when he sees how startled she is, and he beckons….. Jennifer.denys@yahoo.com

  3. Neringa says:

  4. tabitha tully says:

    Walk up and put his arms around her waist and say “MINE”
    dennisntabitha28@yahoo.com

  5. I think he should walk onto the dance floor give her a sexy smirk and crook his finger at her to tell her to come and show her that she is his!! lavidabrisco(at)yahoo(dot)com

  6. parisfanca says:

    i say he should go after her and chase off the other two guys!

  7. haley miller says:

    I believe he will tell both men to back the fuc* off and pick up Suzie cave man style and take her home and give her what she’s really wanting

  9. Shirley Ann Speakman says:

    I think Mark should slowly make his way over to where she is dancing and catch her attention with a smile and wink!!

  10. Cheryl Rogers says:

    I bet he plans on going up to her and putting his arms around her possesively.

  11. JanD says:

    He should interrupt and make it clear to the two guys that she’s taken.

  12. bn100 says:

    Join them and dance together

  13. JeanMP says:

    I think he would go over, grab her off the dance floor and take her to a dark corner.

  14. Vanessa N. says:

    He should definitely walk over, tell the guys to back off, show her how a real man dances and show her she is his.

  15. chickie434 says:

    I can’t resist, it’s the first thing that popped into my head…”Don’t just stand there, bust a move!” So go and show her that you’re the guy for her Mark.

    I would have him cut in of course, but it’s really hard to say beyond that.
    From the blurb it seems as thought they are just fooling around and are not in a serious relationship, so I don’t know how smart it would be for him to go out there and do what we all think he should. If they have not decided to be more than lovers and not committed she will most likely resent his involvement. Well, unless of course she is just doing this to get a rise out of him.

    Anyway I can’t wait to find out. The blurbs for all three has me wanting to read them all.

    I would have him cut in of course.
    Although from the blurb I get the impression that they are not yet in a committed relationship, so she may resent him cutting in. Unless of course she is doing this to get a rise out of him.
    In either case, I can’t wait to find out.

  18. kyra says:

    He Saunders over to the dance floor, takes her arm , gathers her into his arms and starting kissing her passionately. He is basically claiming her in front of everyone.
    Kyratinker36@gmail.com

  19. He should grab her around the waist and pull her straight into him for a body pressing, panty wetting, moan escaping kiss, meanwhile wrapping her hair around his hand to hold her, in case she pretends she’s insulted! Lol tweetyiniowa@yahoo.com

  20. angieia says:

    Walk up to Suzannah and cut in on the dance.
    angiek@cfu.net

  21. I think Mark should go over & get his girl from the two dickheads,… & show her what she really needs is just him & not some sorry imitations!! Def go claim her! ❤

    Take care & I hope you have a great day! =)

    He should ease up and block the other two away and start dancing with her with his arm around her waist.

  23. BookAttict says:

    Mark should catch her eye and giver a look that reminds her of all the “dirty talk and hard fucks”, ’cause a hard fuck beats two dickheads!

    Thanks for the amazing excerpt & giveaway!

    Congrats on all of your success! Mark should definitely go claim her! Show her what she needs is him! Pulling her away from them, pressing her up against him, and kissing the hell out of her! Thank you for the fantastic hop!
