Release Blitz: Never Again by Lilliana Anderson
Title: Never Again
Author: Lilliana Anderson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 14, 2017
Not even a year after marrying the guy she'd thought was the love of her life, Cora Knowles is already requesting a divorce. To her recollection, philandering was not a part of her wedding vows, and she wasn't about to stand by while 'Sally from accounts' rolled about on her Egyptian cotton sheets.
While trying to soothe her broken heart with copious amounts of cake and liqueur chocolates, her best friend, Olivia suggests that the best way to get over someone, is to get under someone else. Problems arise when the one Cora 'gets under' turns out to be the son of the Director of Prosecution—her boss. Worse still, he's young. Younger than Cora originally thought, and younger than she's comfortable with.
But, when the attraction is undeniable, Cora needs to decide whether she'll turn her back on the enigmatic Brandon Sharp, or take a risk and follow her heart, even though she promised herself she'd never do that again...
"Hashtag that one 'slaying life'," Olivia suggested. "That bastard will see how happy you look and realise how badly he fucked up." She sucked back on a cigarette then blew the smoke out in a rush. “Come to think of it. We need to go out tonight. That will really piss him off. You can post photos and everything.”
“Go out?” The idea seemed completely insane to me.
She stubbed out her cigarette in a small aluminium ashtray. “Yes, Cora. I love you, and I think you’re gorgeous, but lying on my couch for months on end, eating liqueur chocolates while watching Netflix isn’t doing a thing for your figure.”
“Jack always said that saying ‘but’ meant you could discount everything that was said before it.”
She picked up her Prada handbag and slid it over her arm. “Fuck Jack. You should discount everything he ever said to you before the moment you saw his butt as he pumped that Sally woman from behind in your marital bed.”
My stomach soured at the memory. “Don’t remind me.”
He didn’t speak at first, he just slid one hand over my hip until it flattened possessively against my stomach, pulling me against him as his head lowered to the curve of my neck and he inhaled deeply. I could barely breathe. Every nerve in my body was alive and screaming for more. I had never, ever, ever, ever, ever, had this reaction to a man before. The question of whether or not I could go through with a one-night stand suddenly became a moot point. His touch had already melted my panties right off.
“Want to get out of here?” His voice cut through every other sound in the room, so clear. It felt like a wild promise curling through my body until it pooled as a heat between my thighs.
His head lolled back against the wall as my hand wrapped around his base before I drew him into my mouth, swallowing him back with a greed I never knew I possessed. Who was this woman? I was giving head like a porn star on my knees in a hotel room with a stranger.
I’d never felt so free in my entire life.
He was on his knees. I was still against the wall, panting, waiting. Reaching up, he popped the clasp on my bra then dragged his fingers down the skin of my back, hooking my panties, dragging them down too. Then with a groan, he grabbed my arse cheeks, squeezing hard before he bit down. My eyes went wide and I gasped, a bolt of lust landing right in the centre of my core. What the hell was that?
“That arse.” The words were a rumble against my skin as he stood back up, spinning me so I was facing him again. I let my bra fall down my arms and his eyes darkened. “Those tits.”
