Can you tell us a little about yourself? Who are you? What is your role in the story?
My name is Alexis Stone. This isn't something I like to admit but I've lost myself in lust. I'm not sure what it is about Leo. He's incredibly good looking, sure. But it's not like I don't come across good looking men all the time. I've got one trying to convince me to go on a date with him as we speak.
With Leo, though, it's different. I'm not myself around him. I'm more. I feel something inside of me yield to my deepest desires. Not just sexual desires, either. There's something in me that wants so badly to lean on someone. It's ridiculous, I know. This thing between Leo and I is supposed to be about sex. I'm the one insisting on this. And, really, it shouldn't be happening at all. It's a bad idea. I'm his boss and this is bound to get messy. Yes, I knew this when it started and you know what? I think I secretly want a mess. I've always strived for order and perfection. But that just left me feeling empty and alone. I'm unhappy and don't have a real reason to blame. I should be careful what I wish for. It seems that now everything is falling apart around me. Things are going wrong left and right. I guess it's true what they say, when it rains it pours.
What is your favorite hobby?
If you ask Leo, he'd say my hobby is a certain type cardio we engage in. But we aren't going to talk about that.
What is the challenge you’re trying to overcome during the story?
It's hard to me to sit here and diagnose my own challenges. If you ask my creator, she'd tell you I have deep attachment issues. But I don't really think that's true. I think life has just taught me it's best to not depend on people too much. Or at all.
If you could make one wish, what would it be?
I'd like a second shot at a childhood. A real one. A carefree one with a loving mother and a father that cleans up my bruises and makes me feel safe.
Tell us a secret about you.
I don't share secrets. Not with anyone.

Genre: Romance (Adult, Contemporary)
Happily ever after? It doesn’t exist.
I wore the big white dress and rode off with Prince Charming. Then Charming changed his mind.
These days, I don’t put my heart in anyone’s hands because I don’t even know where I’ve left it.
So when a ruggedly handsome, blue-eyed man stirs my desires awake for the first time in years, I tell myself it’s a one-time thing.
And now? I’m hooked. Nothing could prepare me for Leo. He weaves simple, deliberate movements into pure, gilded pleasure. Like a sensual alchemist.
I’m so blinded by lust I barely notice the gaping hole opening underneath me, the one that’s sure to swallow me down. Because every time I’ve dared to get close to someone, they’ve cracked me wide open.
Why should this time be any different?
