Warm Up This Winter With #UntangleMe by SJ Maylee

When the weather outside is frightful, there isn’t much I enjoy more than curling up under the covers with a steaming hot romance…except maybe curling up with my guy and a steaming hot romance. Afterall, if my guy is there and I start to smolder…well, let’s just say he can play fireman and put out those flames.

With the cold weather upon us, I invited my friend and blog buddy, S.J. Maylee to stop by and share a little bit about her newest novelette with Evernight Publishing.

So, without any further ado, here’s a bit about Untangle Me.

Untangle Me


Ivy’s revenge on the people behind her family’s downward spiral is simple and it’s working. There’s no need to long for help from the wealthy business owners who turned their backs on her father. Ivy may be worn out, but she’s finding herself again after joining the local BDSM club.

Seth has it all. He has homes around the world and the little red speedster he dreamed of as a little boy, but none of the things he can buy satisfy him, not the socialites hanging on his arm or the submissives falling at his feet. Then, he hires Ivy to plan his next event.

Seth and Ivy enjoy each other’s company in and out of the planning stages for Seth’s charity event. Their playful bets lead them to a first date. When their secret kinks are revealed, the pair fall deep, but it’s not meant to last. Past hurts come back to haunt Ivy. Now, it’s time for Seth to use all he’s learned, regardless if he can win back the girl.

Where was Seth?

Once in the center of the dance floor she turned in a circle, looking every direction.


From the center seat at the bar, Seth’s direct stare held her captive. A new song excited the crowd and cheers surrounded them, but neither of them paid it any attention.

His jacket and tie were gone, giving her a closer look at his all-male body. The top button on his white shirt was undone. She wanted to undo the rest and get a glimpse at what lay underneath. Round shoulders tapered to his waist. She bit her lip as she imagined his length.

He made no move to come to her, his elbow still rested on the bar. He was a man waiting for the world to come to him.

Not the world. Her.

The comfortable confidence and the heat shining in his eyes turned her on. She swayed her hips to the hypnotic beat. Her hands felt their way up her thighs, around her hips, and an inch past her waist, he got up and walked towards her.

In no time, his feet stepped in between hers and together they rocked to the music. The drums and base from the band pushed a rhythm into her body, driving her desire. Their fingers interlaced. She snuggled closer and breathed in his clean musky scent.

She wanted to touch him, but he kept a hold on her hands. He pushed them both behind her, causing her back to arch and her breasts to press deliciously into his hard body. Heat rolled through her. She let her head fall back, exposing her neck.

His lips brushed across her collarbone. They continued to rock back and forth, their hips swaying and rubbing together. He took her wrists in one hand and his other stroked down her neck, over her shoulder, caressed the side of her breast, and around her waist to land on her butt. He squeezed her ass and pressed her into the hard ridge of his cock. She lowered her chin and moaned as she took in his expression filled with raw desire. A slow devilish smile lit his features and sent a tremble through her.

The song ended and another began while they continued their dance. He let go of her hands and she wrapped them around his neck. Both of his hands molded her ass. She nuzzled his neck, taking a nibble and a few kisses as she breathed him in. She wanted more.

Lots more.

She made her way closer to his mouth. Before she stole a kiss, she looked into his eyes. His brown eyes had darkened to the color of night, matching his hair. She sucked on her lower lip.

“You know what you’re doing, right?” he asked.

“I know I want you.”

“The Masters work the back rooms on club nights. But we can stay on the dance floor all night, if you want.”

“You’re talking about the one on one rooms?” She sucked in a breath.

“I don’t think this crowd is prepared to see what I want to do to you.”

“Can we go back there? I want to go back there.” She looked directly into his eyes.


Of course we can’t let S.J. just leave after sharing such a tidbit… we want to know stuff, right? So here’s what S.J. wanted you to know about some of her favorite things…

Take it away, S. J!

The hero of UNTANGLE ME is a successful businessman. With all his wealth, extravagances are easy to come by. I believe luxuries don’t have to be costly or out of reach. Here are my top five inexpensive favorite things:

  1. Spritz of lavender water on my pillow. Certain smells can take my stress away. There’s nothing like my mom’s cooking or a fresh cup of coffee, but when I need to quiet my mind and breath deep, a simple spray of lavender can help my mind let go and relax.
  2. Chocolate. Any kind of sweet yummy chocolate is an indulgence. It doesn’t take long to enjoy a little morsel either, but they take me to a happier place.
  3. A snazzy drink. For me it will probably be a cup of coffee from my favorite local coffee joint. I make an excellent cup of coffee at home, but there’s something about going out and having it done for me that makes it better.
  4. Watch something funny. It doesn’t matter if it’s an old favorite or something new. Every week, I take the time to sit down, put my feet up, and laugh.
  5. Call a friend. I have several friends that live several states away. Although I might not have seen them this year, a few minutes on the phone will bring us right back together and will do wonders at stripping away my stress.

These are just a few of my favorites. One of them is Ivy’s favorite too. She’s the heroine in UNTANGLE ME. You’ll have to read the story to find out which one and the heart breaking reason why she needs it. I wish I could talk about it more. I love this story and I hope you will too.

Thanks for dropping in, S.J. It’s always a pleasure to have you visit!

S.J. Maylee fell in love with storytelling at a young age and with it came a deep-seated desire for everyone to find their happily ever after. She’s finding the happy endings for her characters one steamy story at a time.

When she’s not reading or writing, you can find her caring for her garden, laughing with her two young sons, or dancing to her husband’s music. She’s a PMP (Project Management Professional), Nia instructor, and coffee addict.

As a writer she has a tendency to break hearts, but she always glues them back together.

    That reads well, I will have to add you to my TBR. In re coffee: I SO prefer our home coffee to anything I can get out, unless it’s a really insane cup of espresso. But since we got a Nespresso I am in love with pretty much that.

    Love the voice, the tease and the promise in that excerpt, S.J. You are NEXT IN LINE after I treat myself to a read of Kitt’s release.

    I’m moving the email notice on this blog into my Nifty News folder. I will purchase and read your book — just as soon as my MasterCard cycles, and I clear the balance to zero. [We’re in the throes of a new home purchase. Annoying, stupid, rules, rules, rules.]

    Kitt! I plan to treat myself to reading your book this week. Betwixt and between packing to move.

    You find the best “stuff,” girlfriend!

    Great review, Kitt! Sounds like a deliciously fun book. Speaking of those kinds of books, I just bought yours! I couldn’t resist. Let’s just say its subject may or may not remind me of a very special night a loooong time ago in my single days. 🙂


  4. Jess Witkins says:

    Ooh another steamy title to put on my list. I just finished Seducing Cinderella by Gina Maxwell and loved it! Joe was reading over my shoulder on the couch one night and was like “What are you reading?!” I started laughing and he continued, “I’m kinda hot right now.” 😀 he he he
