Thanks for having me! I’m Alexis Alvarez, and I’d like to share a snippet from my newly released romance novel, Dream Girl. It’s my own version of The Bachelor…done the way I want to see it, of course, with a perfectly sexy and dominant hero, and the sassy, smart woman who will steal his heart.
Blurb for Dream Girl:
He’s sexy and intelligent, handsome and witty… and Chloe’s body lights up with sparks at his touch. And when he looks into her eyes and whispers naughty sexy things into her ear, she wants to melt into him and enjoy the mind-blowing passion he promises.
Too bad he’s the star of the popular reality show Dream Girls, and he’s also dating nineteen other girls in addition to Chloe — girls who are sexy and so talented that their Nobel Prizes should arrive any day now. Chloe’s sure he’s just amusing himself with her, and there is no way he’d pick her as his final Dream Girl — especially since she gets into so many crazy scrapes on the show.
She promised herself she was only doing this for adventure, travel, and new experiences…not to make a fool of herself on national TV. But he’s so sexy and persuasive! Would it be so bad to say yes to all of his dark, dirty requests? And most important of all — what will happen if she risks her heart?
Dominic is usually the dominant one in their interchanges, but in this excerpt, Chloe switches things up.
Excerpt from Dream Girl:
“What do you want to talk about, then?” he teased, licking her neck briefly before sucking there, making her moan.
“I don’t—mmm… I don’t know… yes, keep doing that,” she urged, pulling him closer, closing her eyes in bliss.
“This?” He kissed her shoulder, then her lips, and in the same moment, his hand found her breast and caressed her through the fabric of her shirt, teasing the nipple with his fingertips, squeezing and pulling until she cried out in pleasure.
“Or this?” He lowered his hand to cup the front of her jeans, moving his fingers deliberately along the V of her legs.
“Yes, that. I like that topic,” Chloe murmured, squeezing his arms, then circling his waist and lowering her hands to touch his ass. She pulled at his belt and teased, “Want to take this off?” She hesitated for a moment, then added, “Remember what you said that one day at the stables, about getting me under your belt?”
He stilled. “I damn well do, Chloe.”
She swallowed. “What did you mean, exactly? Was that just about sex? Or did you mean…”
He chuckled into her neck, and she felt the vibrations all the way down her body, making her thrum with adrenaline. “Of course I meant sex, and also—whatever else you were thinking, too.”
Chloe gulped. “You like to spank your women?”
He laughed, pulling back to look at her face. “Sometimes, yeah. I don’t need it, but I like it at the right time. I can use a belt to spank or to tie someone up, Chloe. But only with women who like it, too.” He gave her a questioning expression. “Why are you asking about this? Are you… interested?” His lips curved up into a smile that made her weak with desire. His fingers brushed hers and together both of their hands stroked his belt.
“I’ve never tried it,” she admitted. “I might like being tied up if—if it’s not…”
He bit her neck again and whispered, “If it’s hot and I stop when you say? Then you’d like me to show you what it’s all about?”
She nodded, unable to talk. “Mmm hmm.”
He inserted his fingers under the fabric of the jeans at her waist, stroking the soft skin there. “I also like to be in charge in the bedroom. Do you want me to show you how that works, too?”
“Yes, show me,” she whispered, resting her cheek against his chest. “Tonight.”
“That sounds like a very reasonable request,” he said in a low voice, and pulled her up to his lips. The kiss deepened, and he ran his hands over her body. “Chloe. Do you want to go back?” His eyebrow raised, he looked at her face to assess, and when she nodded and whispered “yes,” he took her hand in his and started walking them back to the hotel.
When they entered her room, Dominic took off his jacket and tossed it to the chair. He looked her in the eyes and began to deliberately unbutton his shirt. Chloe felt her face redden and she sucked in a breath as his magnificent chest came into view. She waited for him to keep going, but he smiled at her and nodded his head.
“Your turn, Chloe. The shirt.” He crossed his arms, his shirt open. His voice was dominant, and the tone—so masterful and deep—gave her shivers. She licked her lip, watching a muscle twitch in his cheek, and slowly used both hands to raise her shirt and pull it over her head. When she was standing there in just her lacy bra, she tilted her head.
“Like what you see?” Her voice came out husky.
“Damn straight.” His was hoarse. He sat down on the bed, legs spread, and leaned back on his elbows. Chloe let her eyes dart over the cut muscles in his stomach, which rippled as he moved.
“Pants.” His eyes were dark.
Chloe felt a smile tugging at her lips, and she deliberately unbuttoned her pants and stepped out of them. Her panties matched her bra and she felt her nipples peak under his gaze.
“Nice,” he murmured, his body taut, his face focused on hers. “Now the bra.”
Chloe sucked in her breath. “Um…”
He smiled a dangerous grin. “Didn’t you say you wanted to play my game?”
She nodded, hesitant, but still didn’t move to undress further.
“Maybe you need help?” suggested Dominic, getting to his feet. “First-timers sometimes need a little… assistance.” His voice was low and sexy. “Come here.” He gestured with his finger, and pointed to the floor in front of his feet.
Dream Girl is a light-hearted, fun romance with steamy sex, laugh-out-loud humor, and an HEA. It releases September 1st on Amazon and will be in the Kindle Unlimited program.
Thanks for having me, and I hope you enjoyed the excerpt!
