HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY, JUST GOTTA SAY!


by Laura Kaye

It’s so hard to believe it’s been a whole month since my contemporary erotic romance, Just Gotta Say, released! And boy do I have something special for you guys to celebrate! Not only am I offering a copy of the book to one commenter (must leave email address!), but I dug into my writing vault and found a deleted scene from the story. If you’ve read JUST GOTTA SAY, you’ll know why this scene was cut; if you haven’t, consider taking a look and seeing if you can figure it out! Either way, get comfortable, make sure your significant other’s nearby (ya know, for after, ahem), and enjoy this exclusive deleted scene from Just Gotta Say:

Warning: This excerpt contains molten hot sexual tension and explicit sexual content some readers may find offensive… Now if that doesn’t turn you off (!), read on…

Noah awoke with a start.  He flew into a sitting position, shaking his head free of the cries in his dream.  His eyes couldn’t make sense of his surroundings.  This wasn’t his room at home.  He looked down at the bed onto the sleeping, naked forms of his best friends.  His memory of the night’s events came rushing back. 

He found the source of the cries and whimpers.

Callie lay on her side, facing the middle of the bed.  Lucas spooned her.  How he wasn’t awake Noah couldn’t imagine, because Callie was moaning and mewing.  Her hips rocked and shook with those of some phantom lover.

“Jesus.”  Noah combed his fingers through his curls.  Her apparent erotic dream fueled an immediate hard-on.

“Want you too.”

Used to her sometimes talking in her sleep, he gently climbed around Jack and lay down on his side facing Callie.  He cupped her cheek lightly, not wanting to scare her awake, but hoping to soothe her.

“Sshh.”

“Noah…”

He grinned and stroked his fingers over her cheek, her hair.

Callie’s eyes blinked wide open and she sucked in a breath.

“Sshh.  Hey, hey, it’s just me.  You were dreaming.”  His voice was quiet, calming.

She froze for a minute.  “I know.”  Noah inhaled sharply when Callie grabbed his neck and pulled his lips to hers.  She sucked at his top lip, his bottom, over and over, turning her head this way and that.  “Of you,” she finally said, before falling right back into him again and exploring his mouth with her tongue.

The kissing was great, amazing, even, but Noah finally pulled back.

“I want you to have your turn,” Callie whispered.

Noah’s eyes widened.  “That’s not—”

“No, I want you.  This night, this experience—it’s not complete for me without you.”

“God, Callie, are you sure?”

“Please, Noah?”

“Whatever she wants, Ryder, right?”

Noah cut his gaze to Lucas’s intense stare over Callie’s shoulder.  He hadn’t noticed when he’d awakened.  Noah was amazed at Luke’s generosity—not because Lucas was a selfish man, because he wasn’t—but because his possessiveness of Callie dripped from every pour like territorial pheromones.

A warm feminine palm gripped his dick and squeezed.  He grunted.

Then Callie groaned.  Lucas’s hand was buried between her thighs.

“She’s so ready.  Aren’t you?”  Lucas kissed and sucked on the shell of her ear.

She nodded, her eyes half-lidded and pleading with Noah.

Noah turned to find a condom and found Jack kneeling, skimming his hands over the comforter.  “Ah, there it is,” he said.  “Had it out from before.”  He gave Noah a quick kiss and tore open the square foil packet.  “Allow me?”

“Yeah.”  Jack treated him to a half-dozen tight-fisted strokes, then sheathed his dick.

Lucas grabbed Callie’s top knee from underneath and lifted her leg up and open.  Noah had heard their private whispers, knew that Lucas wanted to hold her in his arms during.  That suited him just fine.  Besides, he knew Callie was the one offering, but the visual was stunning—the picture of a man offering up his woman, holding her open, calling the shots.  His cock twitched.

And then Noah was right there, pushing into her.  Slowly.  He didn’t want to hurt her, though his confidence was bolstered by what she’d handled earlier.  And then, as her nails dug into his shoulders and she groaned from deep down in her gut, he filled her until his dark curls met her golden ones.

Jesus, she was tight.  And so damn good.

He set an unhurried pace but made sure each thrust hammered his pelvic bone into her clit.  He tuned Lucas’s murmured encouragements out—he couldn’t listen to the lust and dominance dripping from the older man’s voice and keep his shit together.

Callie’s words were bad enough.  “Oh my god, you’re big.  I’m so full,” she kept moaning.

When two slick fingers slipped between his clenched ass cheeks in search of his anus, Noah knew he was going to be in trouble.  But he went with it, because the combination of Jack’s invasion and Callie’s tight-walled pussy had him shaking against the urge to just let go.

But then Callie cried out.  Lucas swallowed her sounds in a kiss that looked like sex as her muscles convulsed around him and milked his orgasm right out of his tight balls.

“Shit, baby girl, coming!”  He stilled inside her.  Her body rhythmically gripped him, and he shot his release.  He clenched his eyes and dropped his forehead to hers.  “Jesus,” he whispered.  He eased himself out of her.

Her little hands tangled in his damp curls.  “Aw, Noah, that was…”—she nodded and smiled—“you are wonderful.  Thank you.”  She pressed a warm kiss on his lips.

“I feel the same way.  You’re the best, sweetheart.”

And then, before too long, all four of them fell back to sleep, this time in a heap of sated bodies.

Phew! Are ya still with us??? If so, take a gander at the *10* great reviews Just Gotta Say has received in its first month:

Here’s the blurb:

Callie Davis stumbles upon two of her three male roommates in a surprising, molten-hot midnight tryst and discovers a side of herself she never knew existed. Desire to play with them grips her, and she can’t stop fantasizing about having multiple men, particularly her three long-time best friends.

Callie is thrilled when a guys’ night out gives her the perfect opportunity to recreate her fantasy, with the help of a threesome porn video and a bag of sex toys. That is, until Lucas, Jack and Noah return early and catch her in the act. More than anything, the guys want to make her fantasy come true. But Callie has a secret, and she can’t help wondering if being with all three men will risk the future she’s always wanted with one of them.

As three strong sets of hands caress and undress her, Callie surrenders to desire, because sometimes you just gotta say...yes.

And you cut it! Wow, Laura!! I have to hold up my hand and say - if I cut,I save and use later. In case of my WIP - it's stuff from years ago. Though that might account for reason it's not currently playing ball!!!

Laura Kaye said...

LOL Barbara. Yeah, had to cut this one. There was a pretty good rationale with the character development of the story! Glad you liked it, though!

Joya said...

LOL, quirky humor in a steamy story like this? Love it! Congrats on another successful release, Laura, and happy one-month birthday to Just Gotta Say. :)

Hey guys! I've already noticed one typo in this, but I don't want to bug Decadent awesomesauce blog maven to fix. See? My post is a twofer--a hot read and a lesson in the importance of editors! LOL Enjoy!

I'm gonna wait to read this until after I've had a chance to read the whole story. I know I'll love it all though!
