Bethany Rosa

GENRE:  Romance

“I’m done waiting around. You’re mine. No more games or pining over someone else when it’s me you want. You won’t remember his name after I get through with you.”

Lily knows exactly what she wants in life. To graduate, land a high-paying job, and forge her own way. Nothing will distract her. Until the ultimate playboy, billionaire Sebastian Dubree, barges in. Not to be overlooked, Lily’s longtime crush, Jackson, decides she’s worth the fight.

Reluctant to succumb to either, she quickly becomes a challenge to conquer.

Lily must decide between the familiarity of her childhood longing or the newly discovered  passion ignited by the dominant CEO. But can she surrender without losing herself in the process, or will someone take matters into his own hands?

Boundaries blur between desire and resistance in this gripping coming-of-age romance, leaving readers yearning for more.

Enjoy an Excerpt:

I hit a wall. A solid, warm wall that smells dreadfully sinful. Before I have time to process, two firm hands are on my shoulders to steady me. “Hey, watch where you’re going” comes the deepest, sexiest voice imaginable, which would be incredibly hot if the words spoken were anything other than rude and demanding. Looking up, which is crazy, considering I’m one step higher, I freeze as my eyes land on a dark, handsome god of a man who looks like he wants to commit murder. What is it with me and jerks tonight? 

His eyes get bigger, and his brows furrow as soon as my shocked gaze meets his. He has short black hair that’s longer on the top and styled perfectly. His menacing eyebrows are folded downward from scowling at me. The dark scruff that shadows his face is so sexy, trimmed razor straight, accentuating his perfectly chiseled jaw. Mentally slapping myself, I apologize. 

“Crap, I’m so sorry. I didn’t see you there.” He doesn’t release his hold. 

“That’s because your head was down. Your eyes should be looking forward.” His voice is hard and demanding. 

Flustered and—I reluctantly admit—slightly turned on by his strong, firm grip and penetrating stare, I stand there frozen in place. After what seems like minutes but I’m sure is only seconds, I snap out of it and apologize again. “Sorry, I’ll watch where I’m going from now on.” The words rush out as I pull away to leave, this time keeping my head up. I think I hear him say something else behind me, but I don’t stop. Running into one of the hottest guys I’ve seen in a while should’ve been the highlight of my night. Instead, I’m more irritated. Do all good-looking men have a license to be an ass?

Q&A With the Author:

Any weird things you do when you’re alone?

Wow, I don’t think I should answer that; I’m a romance author, what do you think? Kidding. Maybe. For real, though, I blast music to unhealthy levels. I like bass, so it can get a little out of control. My husband absolutely hates this about me. It’s one of the few things we don’t see eye to eye on.

What is your favorite quote and why?

“It’s none of your business what other people think about you.” It helps get me out of my head sometimes and reminds me that not everyone will like me, and that’s okay. What I don’t know can’t hurt me, right? I’m already realizing I need to grow some thick skin in this industry, especially in this genre. It’s not for everyone. I’m not for everyone. The problem is, with reviews playing such an important role in book sales, it’s everyone's business what someone thinks about you. The key is not to make a review personal, but many do. So then, it’s my job not to take it personally. That’s tough. The best advice an author friend gave me the other day is to stop reading the reviews. They are for the readers, not the authors. I’m working on that.

Who is your favorite author and why?

I don’t have an absolute favorite, but here are a few. Katee Robert, EL James, Ana Huang, Rina Kent, Stephanie Meyer, etc, etc, etc. All of them because of a love for their books, some because they’re out of the box and embrace it, and a few for doing it on their own. We all started with an empty slate, an idea, and a desire, and all of these ladies made it happen one way or another. 

What, in your opinion, are the most important elements of good writing?

Natural flow and sentence structure. Writing how we talk. Leaving something in your story that the reader wants and not giving it to them until the end. I get bored, so when I’m reading a book and have nothing to look forward to, I go to the next book and start over. Another key is not having grammatical errors. I can’t handle it. I will usually put a book down if I get to a third. 

Where did you get the idea for this book?

It is so cliché, but I literally had a dream. There were three characters in my dream, and the scene was steamy. A conflict between the two male characters made it interesting, and after writing it down, I had my first 2800 words of the book. After all was said and done, I had to build the story around this one scene, which ended up being chapters 22 and 23.
