All For Maddie is the story of a 17 year old girl who finds herself in a situation which forever changes her life. Dragged to a college party by her best friend Kylie, this is their last hoorah before Kylie moves to Lincoln. Not wanting to spoil the fun with her friend, Whitley stays and drinks some punch to help her loosen up and act older than the 17 years she really is.
Whitley’s sixth sense is telling her something is not right. The hot, good looking college senior, Alex Wesson was talking and flirting with her and not her gorgeous friend. Was he really interested in her? To ease her nerves, Whitley continues to drink, dance and just have fun, no longer worried about getting caught for sneaking out by her over protective dad. The drinking continued and Whitley ends up in Alex’s bedroom, then everything fades to black…..
Fast forward almost 4 years and Whitley now has a 3 year old little girl, Madelyn. Maddie makes everything Whitley has gone through worth it. The struggles of a teenage mother, making ends meet and raising a stubborn 3 year old on her own have made her grow up quickly. Not able to leave for long periods of time because of Maddie, Whitley is exhilarated to have a weekend alone in Lincoln. The bachelorette party for Kylie at a bar promises to be a great time, until Whitley sees Alex Wesson walk in. The haunting images from almost 4 years ago come crashing back, and Whitley runs for the bathroom, physically ill from the sight of him. Making excuses, Whitley leaves the bar and goes out front to hail a cab. A voice from the past, comes crashing into the present outside and ignites the anger she has been trying to suppress. Alex tries to apologize for that night, but reminds her of the orgasm she did experience. On some level, she must have enjoyed it. Whitley completely loses her cool at his asinine remarks. Screaming with rage, she reminds him that he raped her, while she was too drugged or drunk to do anything about it. Jumping in the cab, she leaves, vowing never to see Alex again.
A few weeks later, a white sports car pulls up and Alex Wesson gets out at her family’s campground. This cannot be happening to her! Panic shoots through her body as she tries unsuccessfully to try to hide Maddie from Alex. He eventually comes face to face with the adorable 3 year old and she can see the gears turning in his head as he does the math and realizes Maddie is his child. He demands to be part of his daughter’s life and will do anything to have that chance. Whitley is blackmailed. He threatens to take Maddie away from Whitley, saying he will be granted sole custody. She makes a deal with the devil, Alex, and moves to Lincoln so Alex and Maddie can form a relationship. They pretend to be the perfect little family in front of their parents and friends for months until it doesn’t feel like a sham any longer. Can this be real after such an ugly incident brought them together in the first place?
This book gets 5 stars! I could not stop reading it and stayed up until the early hours of the morning to finish it. This was such a well written rollercoaster, with twist and turns, ups and downs. At one point you actually love Alex, and how he is with Maddie and Whitley. The next, you absolutely loathe the snake he is and his manipulative ways. Whitley is portrayed as a tired, over stressed young mother, who had to grow up quickly. Her only escape is alcohol and she uses it to ease the pain and numb the outside world. Truly a great read. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and the fantastic conclusion was just perfect!
Review and Teaser by Karen Lee
“I’m not your pawn. You can’t treat me like this,” I yelled drunk words, trying to make sense.
Alex walked back out wearing his jeans.
“I have never treated you like my pawn.”
“You think I’m young and stupid and I just have to do everything—”
My words were cut off by his lips on mine. He tossed me toward to the bed and jerked my shoes off, flinging them roughly across the room. I stared in shock as he unsnapped my jeans and pulled them crudely over my hips.
“Alex, stop. What are you doing?”
He didn’t listen. He ran his fingers between my legs, aggressively shoving two fingers inside of me, dragging them up my wet slit, to my clit, and back inside of me.
“You want me to stop, Whitley?”
“No,” I whimpered as he assaulted my throbbing clitoris.
I dropped from my elbows as he moved down and took me with his mouth, violating my clit with intense pleasure. I felt like I was going to faint. It was so powerful and concentrated. I didn’t think he was ever going to let me come. I would get so close. As soon as I would start to writhe my hips into his mouth, he would slow down.
“Ah, right there. Don’t stop,” I begged with a whimper.
As soon as I screamed out in unbelievable pleasure he was kissing me. This was so messed up. I just walked in on him fucking someone else, and now I was tasting my pussy on his mouth.
“Fuck me, Alex,” I pleaded, panting heavily in his mouth.
He pulled back and stared down at me.
“I’m not going to fuck you, Whitley. I’m going to make love to you, but not tonight. Not now. Do you know when I am going to make love to you?”
I couldn’t answer. I just stared wide eyed and shook my head.
“I’m going to make love to you when you tell me to make love to you. When you are not drunk. Have you ever had sex sober, Whitley?”
Writing is more than a passion for me. I write adult books, romance and erotica. I did recently try my hand at a young adult romance, but because of the gutter that my mind seems to fall into. It quickly went into rated R mode. I reside in Ohio. I love living in Ohio, except maybe the cold winters, and the snow, well maybe the hot summers too. Ah hell, I hate Ohio.
I love to push my limits in writing, fuel the senses and emotions of my readers. I have some great supporters and love them all dearly.
