Release Blitz for Gus by L. Wilder
I loved how he made me feel so wanted, so desired. We were both quickly getting carried away, forgetting that we were out in broad daylight, until a car drove by only a few yards away. While I found it doubtful that they could see anything, Gus pulled back from our embrace and said, “It’s time to go.” “What?” I gasped. “I thought we had all afternoon.” “We did.” He eased me off of him and quickly started to stand. Once he was on his feet, he extended his hand to me and said, “But, then you went and kissed me like that, and now, we have to go.” “We do?” As he pulled me to my feet, he answered, “Yeah. We do.” “Why’s that?” I teased. “Cause I need to bury myself inside my woman, and I have no intention of doing that out here where God and anyone else can see.” He placed his hands on my hips and pulled me close. “What you have going on is for my eyes only.” “Oh.” “Now, get that sexy ass of yours on that bike,” he ordered with the sexiest smirk I’d ever seen. I nodded, grabbed the blanket off the ground, and rushed over to his motorcycle. I was about to put on my helmet when Gus came up to me and said, “You know what?” “What?” “I’m pretty crazy about you.” I’d heard him say those words to me many times , but there was something in his tone that made my chest tighten, like a hot dagger had just impaled my heart. My voice trembled as I repeated his words back to him. “I’m pretty crazy about you, too, Gus.”
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Originally published in the Love, Loyalty and Mayhem anthology, this story completely blew me away. We were introduced to Gus and Samantha in Gunner’s story, and I wondered then, if there was more history behind their interactions. I knew there had to be, but was curious to how they came to be where they were. Little did I know, it was explosive!
Gus is all about his club. His club is his life, his brothers are his family. When he gets the opportunity to move to Memphis and expand his club, he is honored to be given the position, and works hard to prove he is worthy. On his arrival he meets Samantha, and the feelings she rouses in him rivals his loyalty and love for his club. Regardless of their feelings, life pulls them apart, and I wasn’t sure if they would find their HEA!
This book had me on tenterhooks right from the get go! It was unlike anything else I’ve read, and I totally enjoyed reading about the beginning of the Memphis Chapter! It was fun to see what they had to do to earn their place! I’m glad to finally know Gus and Samantha’s story. They went through so much, endured so much! This was a fantastic story, one that I couldn’t help but want to read again and again!
