Blog Tour & Giveaway: Conspiring by J.B. McGee

Welcome to the last stop on the CONSPIRING book tour! 
Today we have an excerpt from the CONSPIRING novella!  The books available for purchase in this series are actually on sale right now!! Check below for the links.

I hope you enjoy this snippet of CONSPIRING, the follow below for a sneak peek at FORGIVEN!!

Ian acts cool, like I’m not even touching him when he asks the cab driver, “Hey man, can you turn the radio on for us?” He leans his body into mine. I feel his breath on my ear. “You’re one hell of tease.”

“Takes one to know one, Ian,” I say as I turn my head so that my lips are barely touching his. I push my tongue out to lick my top lip, knowing that I’ll inevitably touch his. I close my eyes as I softly moan, slowly moving my swirling fingers closer to my target. I anticipate that my tongue will make him finally take my mouth into his and consume me, but he continues to surprise me. He mirrors my gesture and our tongues are tip-toeing around each other’s.

He slides his hand in between my legs. My body is writhing. The need I have for him is overwhelming me. If he’s going to do this to me in the car, then I’m going to have to use all of my self-control to contain myself. I pull away from his lips to look straight ahead before closing my eyes. I rest my head back against the head rest.

Ian barely turns his head, whispering, “You like this, me fingering you in the back of the cab?”

I inhale sharply and nod. I move the pace of my hand to my target faster than I had anticipated. I squeeze his hard length, turning to him and smile. “And you obviously like doing this to me in the back of a cab.”

He is leisurely sliding two fingers in and out of me. My heart is pounding about to beat out of my chest. Coherent thoughts are no longer forming in my mind. Those two fingers do the come hither motion, hitting my g-spot, which nearly pushes me over the edge. I’m so close to my release when he withdraws his fingers. I gasp at the empty feeling he has just left and look at him confused.

He pulls my head to his, our foreheads touching. “Soon,” he mutters.

“But –”

His thumb brushes my pouty lips. “When you come for me for the first time, I want to be able to hear you.” He leans in and pulls my plump bottom lip into his and sucks. He releases it, and once again I am left wanting. “Just think of the things I’m going to do to you.”

I freeze as Gabby says my name. I have never lost control, never crossed the line when it comes to us being intimate with one another. She’s never had to stop us. I’ve always been the one to stop. But this time, the tip of my erection nearly slid into a place I know I’m not yet allowed or welcomed. I fall over onto the mattress beside her. I cross my arms over my face and close my eyes. “I’m so sorry.”

And I am. I am so disappointed with myself. I don’t want her to feel like I can’t wait. Hell, I’ve waited this long. What’s another couple of months. I need to ask her about a date later. I hope she’s not changed her mind on a quick wedding.

I glance over at her when I feel her move. I’m relieved that she’s turned over and has propped herself up on her elbow. She starts to trace my sternum with her finger, up and down.

“Hey. It’s okay. It was just as much me as you. Part of me thinks my mom wouldn’t care. But the other part of me just can’t do it.” A tear trickles down her face.

No, don’t cry. I swipe the tear away as she continues. “I just can’t break the only promise I have left to her,” she confesses.

And in true incredible Gabby form, she’s consoling me when it should be the other way around. I stare at the ceiling because I’m too ashamed of nearly losing it to face her. “You shouldn’t have to apologize. I respect it. I’m upset with myself.” I barely turn my head and glance at her. “Gabby, I love you, and I want you so bad. I was just so caught up in this moment. It’s just a little longer. I promise I can wait.”

“I know, me too.” Her wandering finger skims past my navel, following the small trail of hair. “We can still do other things,” she suggests.

And I can’t believe I’m about to do this. “I’m not going to lie. I yearn to connect to you in every way I can.” I grab her hand before she gets any farther down my stomach. “I just want to hold you. Would that be okay?”

“You want to hold me?” She raises her eyebrows, amused. Yes, I know it’s probably something she never thought she’d hear come out my mouth, either.

I can’t help but grin. “Don’t act so shocked. Less than twenty-four hours ago I wasn’t sure I’d ever get to do that again. Yes. That’s what I want.”

I hold my arm up, and she snuggles into my body. This does feel a little awkward, but I need it. I need to be close to her without being sexual. I don’t trust myself right now, but I want her close to me.

Gabby is thumbing her fingers through the hair on my chest when she says, “I like to snuggle with you.” Her nose is touching the skin on the side of my chest, and inhales as she continues. “You smell so good.”
It’s a statement but the intonation of the way she said it makes me thinks she’s almost asking what it is. I peek down at her equally as confused because I’m wearing what she gave to me. “It’s that Light Blue cologne you got me for Christmas.”

She kisses my chest. “I didn’t recognize it. It smells much better on you than that little card in the store.”

I thought we were just cuddling. She needs to stop with all this affection or I’m going to have to go take a cold shower. I can’t help but laugh at her statement. I smooth her hair as I kiss her head. “I’m glad to hear I smell better than those little cards in the store.”

“Oh much better.” She giggles. “Hey. I need to talk to you about this transfer thing.”

I actually work with a student who has Mitochondrial Disease. He's non-verbal and very cognitively delayed, but we do see small gains every so often, which always brings a smile to our faces :)

I've read Broken on my Kindle and loved it! Can't wait to finish the series :)

I already left a comment, but this was the first stop I made on this blog tour and since I didn't see any of the other posts I had to go back and read what each of the bloggers had to say and from what I read the overwhelming response is that tis sies is a must read. I am definitely going to read it and I'm guessing tell all my friends when I'm done so they get out and buy them too. Thanks for the awesome giveaway. I already bought all three so I can read the right away, but there is something really special about signed copies of books. It's a readers heaven!! sbereza22(at)gmail(dot)com
