Fahrenheit (Fahrenheit #1)
Author: Alex Rosa
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 22, 2015
Lauren Michaels is exhausted with the push and pull of copy editing for Los Angeles’s woman’s magazine, Frenzy, which caters to pop culture, style, and above all, sex.
She wants to write for the magazine rather than edit, but her boss is convinced that Lauren’s conservative tendencies won’t fit in with the risqué nature of what Frenzy is about.
Convinced to make her mark, Lauren begs for the chance to prove herself.
Her mission? To investigate the growing popularity of sex clubs in Los Angeles, and figure out how the sensual underworld functions.
Out of her element, Lauren starts her search with pen and paper in hand at a local sex shop, hoping she’ll find a trail that leads to the lairs of sex and fetishes. Instead, it leads her to Nathan Sanders. He’s daunting, charming, and a little too dark and mysterious for her taste, but Lauren knows he’s what she needs as her way in.
What she doesn’t see coming is that Nathan is all too willing to invite her to a nightclub she’s only ever heard stories about, and also the fact that Nathan know’s Lauren doesn’t have a clue what she’s getting herself into.
This could be fun, they said. There’s no harm in it, they agreed.
Little do they know, a little research can serve up some unexpected results.
I’m wearing white, and I don’t know what compels me to do it. I can’t tell if it’s because I really like the way the thin material stretches over my body, or because Rebecca let me borrow it while saying, “It’s innocence wrapped in sex. That’s you, Lo. You need this dress.”
Okay, the latter definitely convinced me.
I tug at the long sleeves, and then at the short hem of the dress. It’s my boldest dress choice in the length department.
Rebecca also told me not to waste my prime assets, which in my case are my hair and long legs. Legs, which proved awkward in my teens, but now seem like a weapon I wield in my twenties.
The neckline cuts circularly low, but it’s at least cut modestly over my shoulders.
“Lauren,” Nate greets in his ever-so-cool attitude as I approach his car, my matching white heels also matching his white Mercedes.
“Nate,” I reply crisply.
He extends his hand to me before opening the door. It’s crazy how having sex with someone you don’t know breaks all these formal barriers. There’s an eager comfort in placing my hand in his.
His hand squeezes mine before tugging me into him. He smiles before laying a hard kiss against my lips, rendering my knees nearly useless.
Letting go, he chuckles while setting me back on my feet, steadying me.
“Don’t you know girls like me don’t come with balance or poise?” I blurt out.
“Do they come with an instruction manual?”
A smile splits my face in half. “Am I too much for you to handle, Nate?”
“Something like that.” He shrugs, moving to open the door to his car for me.
My whole body is squirrelly when I move inside. I want to pick his brain, say what I want, and get answers to all these questions I have when he says cryptic things to me.
“Stop looking at me that way,” he says when he slips inside, shooting me a smirk before putting his seatbelt on.
“What look?” I ask, fighting the exact look he’s talking about, liking his switch to leather jacket and linen shirt rather than a blazer.
“That look. That cute little smile, and the way your lips won’t stop wiggling.”
“I like the idea I might be a lot for you to handle. It’s the little things.”
“You’re only too much to handle fully clothed, but when I have you naked and at my mercy, you’re the easiest to read.”
I nod, fighting those wiggling lips again. His eyes drag down the length of my body, but it’s quick. He’s back to staring at the road, turning his car on, and driving in the direction of the club.
We stay silent all the way there, only because I can’t seem to form words, and I know I’m the subject for Nate’s look of restrained laughter.
