Title: The Storm
Jana Cook was not born with a silver spoon in her mouth, but her fierce determination leads to a successful career in medical device sales. Toss in five-star meals, fabulous sex with her nearly perfect husband, Andrew, and a gorgeous new house … and Jana’s life is picture perfect before she hits the big 3-0. What more can a girl want?
Andrew laughed and shook his head. “When I met you, I never thought you would be so sexual. You seemed so ... quiet.”
“Didn’t anyone ever tell you to watch out for the quiet ones?” I raised my eyebrows and winked, grabbing him spontaneously and pulling him close. I brought my lips to his and lightly parted them, waiting for him to lead.
Now that my second trimester kicked into gear, sex regained its appeal.
Effortlessly, he kissed me, our tongues wrapping around one another’s, awakening an eagerness that zapped me of any other thoughts. “I want to be the only toy you play with tonight.”
He was the perfect fit. With every move he made, my body longed for more of him, grinding against him until I matched his pace. I wanted to slow down, to enjoy this fabulous sex underneath a ceiling of glistening stars, but I lost every ounce of self-control and thrust against him faster and faster until he exploded with pleasure.
Laura Lexington is a Contemporary Women’s Fiction and Contemporary Romance author. Her debut novel contains elements of suspense and explores elements of every part of life – love, sex, friendship, careers, faith, social issues, and family. She lives in the Southern United States with her family, where she hates the humidity but loves being close to the beach. She is the proud mother of one daughter, a rambunctious five year old who chopped her glorious hair the first week of kindergarten, and is the most awesome wife ever (or so she likes to think). When she’s not daydreaming up future stories, she’s wearing out her Kindle, thinking about shaking the dust off her treadmill, or planning her next trip to Orange Beach.
My Review of The Storm:
Jana is a successful Sales Rep for a medical device company. She has worked diligently to achieve her high standards and the respect of her colleagues and customers.
Jana is happily married to Andrew who is also successful in his field. He is supportive and loving...and all that Jana has ever dreamed of. The icing on the cake would be a child to complete their beautiful family.
Priorities have kept the family dream on hold for some time, approaching 30 Jana is still not sure if she is ready. A promotion to territory manager helps her make that decision, putting her career first yet again.
The promotion brings her back to her home town, close to family and her best friend Grace. Her best friend since college they have been there for each other. Grace has struggled with mental illness for half her life...but their bonds of friendship never falters.
So what could possibly go wrong in this picture perfect world that Jana has? Anything and Everything. Jana falls pregnant, a happy surprise that soon becomes an emotional roller coaster. The company she works for is secretly anti mothers in the work force, doing all they can to edge Jana out of the company. Grace soon becomes pregnant but chooses to stop taking her meds while she is, soon starts to struggle with her life.
Jana is strong, independent, determined and most of not going to let life hold her back. But does she have what it takes to bring down a multi-million dollar company for discrimination? Can she help her friend through her darkest times?
A story filled with love and devotion, heartache and deception. A story that will have you feeling love and adoration for the characters and anger at the way those in power abuse it.
A wonderful story Ms Lexington, I look forward to reading more of your work!
