Teaser Tuesday: Full House by Jess Dee

Today’s teaser is from author Jess Dee, who writes great contemporary romances. She’s sharing an excerpt from Full House which is the third book in her Three of a Kind series. It’s an ebook, and I’m all about those these days (and have been for a few years now 🙂 ). So without further ado… the excerpt! Well, I put the book blurb first so you know what’s going on… and I have to say I always love Samhain’s book “warning” labels!

A full house beats a pair any day.

It’s been a long, lonely business trip for diamond dealer Max Ashberg. He’s missed his lover like crazy, and he’s come to the realization that he’s ready to take the next step: nominate himself to be Trev’s new housemate. Except when he gets to Trev’s place, there’s someone living in “his” room. A woman—with the face of an angel.

Six weeks shouldn’t make a huge difference in a man’s life, but in that time lawyer Trev Greenfield has realized two things: He wants much more than a standing Friday night “date” with Max. And he’s falling heart-over-head for his new housemate, potter Grace Miles.

Grace never meant to fall for Trev, but when a power failure turns their chemistry into live electricity, there’s no denying the spark. There’s also no denying the shock when Grace discovers a naked man in her new home.

With Grace poised to run and Max teetering between confusion and growing lust for the delicious possibilities, Trev has his hands full trying to hold the two loves of his life together…before it all slips through his fingers. Leaving them all with shattered hearts.

Warning: There’s a lot of sex in this book. I mean a lot! Hot sex. Sweaty sex. Gay sex. Straight sex. Ménage sex (M/M/F and M/F/M). Oh, and romantic sex. Lots of romantic sex. Hot romantic sex. Sweaty romantic sex. Gay romantic sex… You getting the picture?

“I’m not doing this because of anyone else.” Trev closed the distance between himself and them. “I’m doing it because I’m crazy about you. About both of you. Because the thought of not being with Max and you is driving me insane.”

Her heart hammered. Her breath left her lungs. She stared at Trev, speechless. Then looked at Max. Was it the same for him?

“I want this too,” Max said. “And not because of any poker club. Since Trev suggested it, it’s all I can think about. The two of you are all I can think about.”

Grace jumped up, suddenly unable to sit a moment longer. Her nerves were on edge, her blood pumping madly through her body. She needed to pace. To move. To do…something.

She made it maybe an inch from the couch before a hand grasped her wrist and tugged. She stumbled and fell against Trev. In a move of remarkable agility, made even more remarkable by the fact that this was Trev, he caught her in his arms, lifted her off her feet and set her down on Max’s lap. Her left shoulder rested against Max’s right, her butt was plopped firmly atop a rock-hard erection and her feet stretched over the cushion she’d just vacated.

She gasped, waiting for the claustrophobia to strike again.

“Cool move, mate,” Max said, clearly impressed. He extended his arm around her back, giving her support and pulling her closer.

“Real cool,” Max added and then said no more as he caught her lips in a tender kiss.

Dear Lord, his lips were soft. So soft and tempting she couldn’t help but kiss him back. Turn her body into his so her breast pressed against his massive chest and her hand found his cheek.

His skin was hot and hair-roughened by the growth of an afternoon shadow. Max smelled like a million dollars, like he’d found the essence of everything that made a man a man, bottled it and sprayed it generously all over.

She may have met him only last week, but each cell in her body clamored to get closer, to discover every detail about him, every secret he kept, every truth he spoke.

“Mmm.” His murmur of approval reverberated against her lips, and she wanted more, wanted to open her mouth and invite him in, taste him, slide her tongue against his.

But Max drew away slowly, as though reluctant to release her. His eyes were closed, his mouth curved into a smile. “Mmm,” he murmured again. “Nice.”

“Very nice,” a voice whispered in her ear.

She turned to the sound, and for the second time her mouth was captured in a kiss as sweet as summer wine. Only this time the lips pressed to hers were Trev’s, and though his kiss was just as tender as Max’s, his tongue was not as absent. It danced at her lips, tempting, teasing, seeking a way between them.

She provided one, opening her mouth and welcoming him in.

The sigh that escaped her was one of sheer delight. Absolute contentedness. Because kissing Trev, relishing each stroke of his tongue against hers, was heaven. Pure heaven.

As was the sensation of Max’s mouth against her neck, his tongue leaving darts of hot, moist pleasure all the way from her throat to her jaw. He pressed his lips to her cheek and pulled back. Not far, but far enough that Grace was keenly aware of his absence.

Trev groaned into her mouth, and a second later Max’s lips feathered a kiss on the edge of her eye. Two kisses. Three. And then they were gone.

Trev’s moan was lower this time.

Grace was keenly aware of Max’s proximity and even more aware of his breath. Where a second ago it had burned over her cheek, now it was absent.

She let her eyes flicker open and then closed again.

No wonder she could no longer feel the warmth of his breath. Max was kissing Trev’s cheek, which explained the moan that echoed from his mouth into hers.

“Kiss me,” Max whispered, and instinctively Grace knew he spoke to Trev.

She pulled away. Not far, just giving herself enough space to watch as the men fused their lips together, to capture glimpses of pink as their tongues danced. She couldn’t look away, couldn’t close her eyes. All she could do was stare, entranced.

Isn’t that an awesome excerpt? Whew. And, Jess is generous enough to host a giveaway as well! One lucky commenter will win an ebook from her back list. So, what’d you think? Have you read Jess Dee’s books before? Do you read ebooks? Are you willing to give them a try? Seriously. I’m getting jealous of you guys. I wish I could win some of these contests!

In fact, I hope you do! <3

    New author to me, but sure enjoyed reading this excerpt for her book, going to be looking for this one. Thanks for introducing me to a new author.

  6. Elece

    I’ve read the three books in this series. I love the way Jess Dee writes. I can always count of hot and steamy sex with characters who are, well, characters. The humor she adds to each one makes me laugh out loud!! Nothing better than true entertainment all around!!

  7. StacieDM

    I have read Going All In and A Question of Trust. Loved them both! Full House sounds just as awesome. Thanks for the sneak peek!

    I love the Samhain book warnings too. Funny thing is that they tend to have the opposite result for me. Not only do they make me laugh but they totally sell me on buying the book.

      1. Bella F.

        Do the authors get to write the warnings?
        I like em too, they’re funny & make me want to read the books that almost seem to dare me to do so lol

      2. Jess Dee

        Bella, the authors do get to write the warnings at Samhain.
        We also get a little help from our editors and from the blurb editor if we need it.

      3. Limecello Post author

        Oh how fun! I didn’t know the authors got to write the warnings, but they’re definitely tongue and cheek and not so much disclaimers as extra teasers 😀
        Very cute.

  8. Meagan

    Holy cow. I never thought I’d read M/M/F outside of fanfiction!

    This is hot. Going to have to find a way to buy some of her stuff!

    1. gigi

      Hi Jess!

      This book is great and the whole series and I can’t even say how much of a nice person she is too.


  9. Fedora

    No need to include me, but just wanted to pop by to say that Jess’s books are truly lovely! This is a scorching hot series! She also tugs on your heart with her characters and what they go through–all her books are great reads!

  10. Susan R

    I have this ebook but haven;t read it yet. I wanted to get the 2 books that come before it first. And I am addicted to readding ebooks- it is so easy to carry a thousand of them around with you, and I can have sosmething for any mood at my fingertips! 🙂

    Thanks for the great contest!

    I read the first book in this series and I loved it. I look forward to reading more of the series.

  12. Tabatha

    I think the only one I haven’t read is the story in the Boys Down Under anthology, but all her other books are great! Jess Dee’s books are always highly emotional, and she has a way of always making me fall in love with her characters.

      1. Tabatha

        As I have always come to expect from you, I loved it! 🙂

        You always have the right amount of chemistry and steam with your characters.

        I can’t wait for more from you, so keep up the wonderful work!

  13. Cathy M

    So far I’ve read the Circle of Friends series (it was fabulous), and would love a chance to start another one of her series. The warnings on her books are always such a hoot, and that humor shows up in her sexy stories, as well.

    Thanks for the contest.

    I’ve read the first two books in this series and they were fantastic, just grabbed full house the other day but haven’t had a chance to read it yet. Super HOT series.

  15. Darcy

    I just love Jess’s books. I have already read the first, and recently got the following 2. But I would love to win one of her back list. who wouldn’t… lol.

    Thank you for the excerpt, and now I know which one I’ll be reading next!

    Thank you!

        Yeppers. ..LOL
        I started it on my drive into Fairbanks today. I already love it…
        I always read during the drive. Unless there is moose or grizzly standing in the middle of the road….of course I’m not driving cause my other is behind the wheel.
        Thanks Jess

  16. Donna

    Oh yes, please enter me in the drawing. I read primarily e-books. I haven’t read this author’s books previously, but it seems like the time is right.

    Great excerpt.I love ebooks,they are the majority of what I buy now.
    I just finished book 1 in this series a few days ago and am now in the middle of book 2.I can’t wait to read this one next.

      1. Jess Dee

        Really, really.
        And I loved the chemistry too. It was one of those books that just worked, from the minute I started writing it, til the very last page.
        BTW – did you write down that sandwich recipe?

  18. Kimberly F

    Where do you get your ideas for writing M/M/F and M/F/M sex scenes — whether they are steamy or romantic? No. I’m not asking about her personal life!! Well, not intentionally anyway! OMG!!!

    I love to read books with twists on relationships. Not everything has to be so “vanilla” — especially in books, where we can live out fantasies or read about things that we would never do ourselves!

    I saw this book on an e-book website and thought “That looks really interesting” but got to doing something else and didin’t read about it!

    Thanks Lime for the great interview & Jess Dee for such awesome-sounding books!

    1. Jess Dee

      Well see, Kimberly, whenever my two lovers come and ‘visit’, I like to make loads of notes about everything we do together so I don’t forget anything…

      … (Not!)

      Hmm, my ideas? Well, the idea for the Three of A Kind series came from eavesdropping on my hubby’s ‘men-only’ poker club. I listened in on their conversation one night, desperate to find out what men chat about when the wives aren’t around.

      And you know what I heard? An in depth conversation about what they each make for their kids for school lunch.

      I knew then and there I could come up with a waaaaay more interesting poker club.

  19. Darcy

    I can read anywhere. I learned years ago how to read on a city bus when I was hauling my son to daycare everyday to get myself to high school. Lord that was eons ago. If you can read on a crowded bus, and a sleeping baby in your lap. You can read anywhere. LOL. I thought any 17 year girl/mother could do it….*S*

      1. Darcy

        Oh absolutely. But no regrets. Life is good :}
        Finished “Raising the Stakes”, and it was hot! Of course now reading Full House, and fell asleep. Going to get back to it here in a minute…
        Thank you again for the delightful contest and chat..*S*

    I fell asleep when I was interrupted reading by my oldest dog Wolf (he is a POM) who decide his asthma was going to keep him from sleeping. I had to walk him outside at 1:30 am this morning till his breathing calmed and fell asleep in my arms sitting on my porch…I left my Kindle on and my battery was dead….fell back to sleep waiting for it to reboot. My hubby found me sitting on the porch swing with Wolf and my Kindle….at 4:00 am.
    Finished Full House this morning on the drive to Nome Creek late this morning…I absolutely love this series. These hot lusty loving men…(sizzling)…
    ***Sighing***, and ever so happy I read these.
    Thank you so much for writing such great stories, and telling their tale… ALL of their stories needed to be told….*S*


    pommawolf @hotmail.com

    1. Jess Dee

      Darcy, I’m sorry to hear your dog has asthma. It must freak you out every time he has an attack. Does the walking help?
      My dog has something similar, but the vet assured me it wasn’t asthma.
      Breaks my heart every time he starts rasping and wheezing and can’t get air. I just sit quietly patting him through it.

      1. Darcy

        We found out after we had our pets including Wolf and 4 cats inoculated and pretreated with flea medicine, that it was the flea med caused his breathing problem. All of our sweeties moved with us to Hawaii for 8 months in 2004-2005, and none our our pets did well with the flea treatments. We lost our 2 older Siamese brothers “Whiskey & Soda” later because of it. Long story short, that makes me not like Hawaii very much. You jump thru hoops to get there with your babies, but your pets suffer.
        The home we rented ended up being infested with fleas, and all 5 animals ended up with them regardless of the flea treatment. But thank god we will never expose our loves to meds, or fleas like those again. We never had fleas before Hawaii. Wolf is a survivor and we use lots of fresh air and calming techniques to keep the attacks at a minimum, and an occasional natural herbal essential oil works too….*S* He loves the lovins’….*S*

      2. Jess Dee

        Okay, wow, that can turn you against flea treatment forever.
        And I can definitely understand the negative associations with Hawaii as a result!
        For you and Wolf.

  22. pommawolfjohnson

    Thank you so much, and hope your furbaby stays well too.
    You can use a natural treatment that helps relax them when they gt agitated during the wheezing. You can find it in any pet story under many names but it is sold as a “Pet Calming” treatment. I was surprised how well it works, and no side effects.

  23. Limecello Post author

    I can throw my name in the hat right? … RIGHT?! 😛 Thanks so much for sharing this teaser, Jess! It was yet another crushing reminder I’m so behind on reading – but the positive is I’ll get to glom your back list!
    I’m definitely hoping you’ll be willing to visit with us again <3

    1. Jess Dee

      Ah Lime, thank you for inviting me over.
      I’ve loved chatting to all your readers.
      And if you’ll have me, it’d be way cool to visit again!

    I am ever so happy I’ve read this series as it has been one of the best in a very long time. I just love all the the characters and now they have a special place in my forever keepers collection to reread I know many, many times.
    I love your writing Jess. I love each character and the way that they each are so passionate in their loving and sensuality.
    Thank nyou again for such lovely reads!

    1. Jess Dee

      Darcy, wow.
      Thank you. I wanna gush on and on about how nice you are and how nice everything you’ve said is, but I can I just settle for sending you a really massive cyber hug?

  26. larry
