Description

Liam O’Connor still loved Jocelyn Charles. They had been engaged almost a decade ago. Tragically, youth, distance, and life goals ended that engagement but not the feelings they shared. Liam, now a successful rancher, and Jocelyn, now a successful social worker, still had their issues.

They still lived a distance apart. He was still a man with traditional values, and she still worked towards ending violence in homes. He still expected the rules to be followed, and she still did not believe in his methods of enforcing those rules. He still had the burning need to protect her, and she still routinely put her safety at risk. Jocelyn still had needs that could only be filled by Liam.

Will the intensity of their re-ignited emotions still incinerate and combust them, or will they now heat and meld them?

Sample Chapter

Chapter One

Jocelyn exhaled with a determined mindset and looked around the crowded room for her lunch companion and spied her waving in the corner of the state office cafeteria. She returned the wave and began to make her way towards her best friend.

“I am so tired already today. It has been a hard week and I have been on-call every day. I need a new job.” Jocelyn’s words tumbled out as she plopped herself into the cafeteria chair.

Kelli reached over and touched her friend’s hand. “I know it has been hard for you with the changes and you’re suddenly single status.”

“I have always been single,” Jocelyn reminded Kelli, “I am just not dating right now. And, believe me, as stressed as I am it is a blessing.”

Mark was just what Jocelyn thought she was looking for, a take-charge kind of man. Just like, don’t think it, Liam. Ugh, right, like Liam O’Connor. Jocelyn had been engaged to her friend Kelli’s brother Liam at the beginning of her sophomore year in college. She was young, and while he was four years older than she, he was still young. They just did not have the maturity or the skill to keep a long distance relationship going. That and Jocelyn found it hard at the time to reconcile his domestic discipline lifestyle with her goals of arming women against domestic violence.

“Mark was decisive, he knew what he wanted and stupid me, I thought what he wanted was what I wanted which included me being happy. You know, for me to be able to release my control of the work day and let someone else manage things for the down times. He reminded me of Li? of someone I could give over my trust to and I guess that made me feel safe. Maybe I just wanted it to be that way, but I now acknowledge that it’s a myth rather than reality. I mean people talk a good talk, but they probably don’t really do that. I’d say it was due to those books, but I don’t read them anymore. Don’t have time. The make me sad actually. But, time to change my game plan.”

Jocelyn hoped Kelli had not heard the slip with Liam’s name because Kelli had been pushing Liam on her since she broke up with him in college.

“You know that I was worried about you, right? And Liam was worried as well.”

Kelli was glad that Jocelyn dumped the jerk before Liam visited. She also wondered what Jocelyn would say if she knew that Kelli had told him everything.?

“Liam? You have a big mouth, Kelli. I know Mark turned into a lousy choice for me, but really?? It’s like tattling. You know that Liam is controlling as well. He told us what to do and we let him. He even spanked me.” Jocelyn lowered her voice to a whisper and looked around to make sure no one heard her. It appeared to have gone unnoticed.

“He is a bit much sometimes. But he treated you like gold in a refinery, more precious every day. But he was worried about your habits. Said you were playing Russian roulette with your safety and needed to learn it was not acceptable. And remember, he also spoke to you in the Irish. He must have really had a thing for you because he never laid a hand, nor spoke in the Irish, to anyone he didn’t care about deeply. He told my sister Caoimhe once after he swatted her butt while swearing to her in the Irish that he didn’t waste his time chastising people he didn’t care about. They didn’t mean the same to him. He never spoke in the Irish to any of his dates.”

“What about his last fianc??”

“Liam said he tried once, but she said she only spoke English and English is all she wanted to hear. Why do you like it so much?”

Jocelyn knew she couldn’t tell Kelli that when she heard Liam’s voice speak endearments in the Irish, it was like warm caramel flowing all around her. That whenever he walked into the room she felt flushed and her belly tingled with anticipation and excitement. It caused her to need to change her panties. She hadn’t felt that type of jazz before or since. She felt a heat flash when she thought of what he was like in bed. She could imagine he would be an even more generous lover now. No, she should divert the conversation.

“Well, Mark was bossy sometimes but he wasn’t that bad. I mean, in the beginning he was trying to help me. I am sure I need to lose some weight and wear better clothes. I guess if I didn’t eat as much then I could afford them, the clothes I mean, right?”

Jocelyn tried to joke, but the incredulous look on Kelli’s face was her friend’s response.

After consuming two thoughtful bites, Kelli resumed the conversation.

??????????? “Hey, I received a text from Liam telling me he had to come to California for business and wondered if I could have dinner with him. And, well, I have this proposal to pitch to him and need him to have another thing to focus his attention on so that he won’t be stuck on the project the whole time. Oh, and I kind of told him you were working too hard. Anyway, would you please come?”

“Excuse me? You told him what? Kelli, you set me up. For some reason, Liam is over-protective. He is more controlling than, well, you know who. You have thrown me under the proverbial bus so you and your boyfriend would not be the sole focus of his scrutiny. And if I didn’t know better, I would say you are trying to get us back together, as always, and it won’t work.”

Jocelyn shook her head and continued. “I am too tired to show up and take the bulls-eye off of you and place it on me. Please just offer my apologies, but I am going home and going to bed this evening.”

“Okay. You are partly right. I really would like to spread out the attention so that Liam won’t be targeting Jake’s earrings and stuff. But about my brother, Liam is over-protective, but he is not psychotically obsessive.”

“I know. You’re right, he is not psychotic. I wouldn’t say Mark was either. But?” She put her hands up in defeat. “I will concede the obsessive part. Can you believe that he just quit calling and demanding my cell phone only this week?” Jocelyn shook her head. “It was as though I was away on business and preparing to come home to him and his freaky control issues.”

“So you’ll come and help fill the gap between Liam and Jake?”

“Does Jake really have more than one earring? Geez, Kelli. Does he have huge tattoos as well? How about wearing bandanas in gang colors and?”

Kelli became defensive and said, “Come on, Jos, you are one of the most accepting of people’s differences that I know. It isn’t like you to be cruel. I need some help here and I would do it for you.”

“Except, my dear, I do not have a brother, nor do I have a brother that has such hands-on attention as you do. Good heavens, Liam would die if I told him about my stalking incident.” Both girls laughed.

“Um, Jos? He kind of knows,” stated Kelli tentatively.

“What do you mean he kind of knows?”

“Well,” Kelli picked the rest of her sandwich apart absently. “I told him.” Kelli’s face scrunched up in preparation for her best friend to explode.

“Are you telling me??”

“Yeah. I guess I told him about Mark and the meth lab apartment thing with the police and moving, and well, the whole last year actually. Look, I’m sorry?”

“Stop. Just stop. You are sorry you were caught, not sorry you said anything.”

“Okay, guilty as charged, but you are my friend.”

“Not at this rate.” Jos frowned hard at Kelli.

“Jocelyn, I really am sorry.” She reached her hand across the table and grabbed Jocelyn’s hand.

“Really. Please, I worry about you. You do work too hard and risk too much.”

“That’s rich coming from the woman who invited a whole South American polo team to sleep at her apartment.”

?”Fine, okay I get it. But are you saying you are standing Liam up just because you broke off your engagement with him?”

“Liam and I haven’t spoken in years. He will be okay with me not going.” Jocelyn wrapped the remainder of her lunch to throw away and shrugged dismissively.

She hadn’t been able to deal well with that, not after she had broken their engagement during her junior year of college. She was immature and confused. She had not been able to deal with everything and a long distance engagement. They were both devastated.

She had spoken to him a few more times over the years since college while with Kelli, but the last time was about five years ago when he became engaged again. So she cut all ties no matter how flimsy they had become. Then that engagement fell through, and she had not heard of any other girlfriends since.

No, it is better not to open that complicated issue again.? Jocelyn was still much too battered and bruised to engage in that type of emotional warfare right now, even if he was the most trustworthy and infuriating man she had ever lusted after. No, she had loved him. Probably still did in a way. And he had the most kissable lips, and sexiest voice and turning everything over to him was easy. Nope, better not go there in my mind or go to dinner. She stood up to leave.

“I need to go back to work and I am pretty tired. How about you have dinner with him tonight and we can all have dinner tomorrow night?”

Kelli shook her head. “He is only here until tomorrow afternoon. Please? You can go home, have a nap, and then go just for dinner?”

“Where are you having dinner at?” asked Jocelyn with considerable reservations.

“Steak n’ Ale, on Carlisle Road. Sounded like a good place and it’s the one near your house. We can set the time for seven o’clock. Please? Once you see him again, that combination of Irishman, big brother, businessman, and rancher, you will be happy that I made such a fuss. You haven’t seen him since graduation and only a few minutes then.”

“I guess it will be okay, so long as you are paying for dinner. I’ll be there at seven.”

“Great!” Kelli squealed and hugged Jocelyn as both women left to return to their day.

Just as four o’clock came and Jocelyn was racing home to take an immediate nap, she received a phone call that had her rushing in the opposite direction. The parent in a case she managed assaulted one of her caseworkers and the visitation supervisor left her staff to figure it out alone. So once again, Jocelyn found herself racing to another part of town instead of going off the clock. This time it was to search for and settle the reporting of a worker’s assault, the re-traumatizing of a child and the lack of good support workers.?

Once she was at the visitation location, the police had the parent in custody, the child was hysterical, and the caseworker was talking to EMS with an ice pack on her face. Jocelyn spoke to the officer in charge first to get his rendition of the situation.

The police took the child’s mother in their car, and Jocelyn sighed before she approached the foster parent who had shown up to take the child home. The foster mother stepped out and gathered the little one to her. She soothed her and tried to help her cope with what she had seen, throwing daggers at Jocelyn as though the incident was her fault. Having already experienced plenty of violence, it was the fear and re-traumatizing that was upsetting the child.

After the child had left, Jocelyn was eventually able to deal with her caseworker who met her supervisor with a wry smile. The worker was going to be all right, but she was frightened.

“It looks like you are going to have a shiner there, with a fat lip and probably a headache. How are your insides?”

The caseworker shook her head gingerly and said, “Gelatin has more consistency right now.”

“We will fill out the paperwork Monday. You go home, soak, rest, and see about doing nothing until we talk Monday. Under no circumstances do you associate with anyone in this family. You are off this case.”

“Not a problem, really, Jocelyn. I will see you Monday. And get some sleep yourself. You look a wreck.”

Jocelyn shot her a crooked smile and started to get into her car when she remembered she was supposed to meet Kelli for dinner, but she was not going to make it. She had not had a shower and she was tired. She told Kelli a little of what happened, glad for her Bluetooth capabilities in her car so she did not have to pull over to talk.?

“Look, Kelli, I know that you want me to go. The problem is I am too tired. I just had another event after I left work, so I never even got to take a little nap, which I desperately need. Now, what I really would love is for you to allow me to back off, give my regrets, and let me soak in a hot bath and then go to bed. That, Kelli, is what a real friend would let me do.”

“Jocelyn, don’t you worry, it will just be a really short dinner and you have to eat anyway, so might as well do it with us. I just want you to see Liam and let him meet Jake before you go home. I promise it will not be that long.”

There was a pause and then Jocelyn responded, “Kelli, I am just pulling in my driveway. Honestly, I do not think I can even drive anywhere else tonight. I am going to stay here. It is already six-fifteen. I would barely have time to get a shower, change clothes, and get there for dinner. Just do it without me tonight. Sorry.” Tired, Jocelyn hung up.

She reviewed, once again, why she had chosen to stay in California to complete her licensing supervision. Her sister wasn’t as needy when Jocelyn graduated college as when she had left home five years earlier. And with the county offering work with Native families, it just made sense to accept their job offer. She hadn’t meant to stay so long but with a full time job, licensing supervision was hard to come by. Working with the children’s agency several hours a week gave her that supervision for free and good experience. It hadn’t been a bad choice.

By the time she had unlocked her door, her cell phone was ringing, and she knew it was Kelli. Answering, Jocelyn expelled an exasperated sigh before speaking. “Hello, Kelli. No, Kelli.”

“Jos, you do not even have to drive, someone will pick you up. I will send Jake for you. Better yet, Liam is coming from the other side of you, and he should be on his way in the next half hour, I will have Liam stop by and pick you up. I will text him your address and he can put it in his GPS on his phone. That’s it, problem solved. That’s perfect, so make sure you are dressed by six-forty-five, which gives you half an hour, you can shower and dress, no problem. Nothing fancy. See you in forty-five minutes, bye.”

“Kelli, Kelli.”

It was no use as she was gone. Repeatedly calling her back did not get a response. Showering quickly instead of taking a leisurely bath initiated the beginnings of a noticeably off mood. Tossing clothing everywhere, Jocelyn completed dressing and waited for a man to pick her up that she had, at one time, had intimate feelings and relations, but whom she had not seen in years. Yes, it was true she had dreamed about him often and in her own creative mind there was that sappy happily ever after ending.

He wouldn’t remember her the way she remembered him and she expected he hadn’t even thought of her in years. That would mean he wouldn’t even have a clue about who she was now. Thank goodness. Oh, except Kelli had a big mouth. It sounded exhausting and she was beyond tired. She fell asleep on her sofa waiting for her ride.

Promptly at six-forty-five, Jocelyn had a knock on her door and she didn’t hear it. It came again, louder, and that woke her up. Leaping from her position on the couch, she quickly threw open the door and found herself staring into the face of Liam O’Connor. He had the same hazel eyes and dark good looks, but what met her when she opened the door was the same smile turned scowl she had seen on Kelli so often. And she remembered so well on Liam.

Not willing to put up with any other moody people, and still trying to level her own equilibrium she said, “Liam, you have the same look as Kelli when she is irritated. I guess I never equated it to Kelli’s until now. What are you suddenly scowling over?”

This was not how her dreams played out when they would meet again, but even with the scowl, he was even more handsome than she remembered. She could hear that velvet voice she had never forgotten and it sent electricity throughout her body. Oh, his voice, that meant he was talking.

“Jocelyn, did you know who I was or did you look through your security view before you opened that door? Woman, you could have been attacked by a maniac. You still need a keeper.”

Yep, nothing had changed.

“She said you were still bossy, still kind of authoritarian in your manner, and still thought women should be barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen.”

She chose to remember him as caring, protective, the kind of man that took ordinary out of the dictionary. Darn, he is talking again without me. Pay attention, Jocelyn.

Liam began to sputter. “What? Who? Kelli? She most certainly did not.”

“Sorry, my interpretation and maybe I was a bit hard. Shoes are probably okay to wear, right?”

It was discourteous to say that, but Mr. Liam O’Connor, my dream world has crashed right into reality and has left no survivors. But even though she remembered him more fondly than accurately in her dreams it didn’t mean he didn’t still have that violent effect on her. She squirmed at the realization she was damp already.

“Yep and you haven’t changed from the spunky woman who needed her bottom warmed on a regular basis. The door? Checking before opening? What have you to say about that because I can assure you that right now I am wondering if there is enough time to take you over my lap and tear into your perky bottom?”

“I don’t have to answer for my actions with you. I am a grown woman that can answer my own door as I please. And I don’t have one of those peephole things, see? Look, I have already had an assaultive incident this afternoon and so my quota is met for the day. And I am too tired to go tonight but your sister insists so I can be the buffer between you and Jake or something. There is that look again, Liam.” She ended in exasperation at his conversation and her traitorous body.

While Jocelyn was thinking she should show herself to be self-sufficient, she went about it the wrong way and saw Liam’s eyebrow shoot up at her statement. If possible, the hard expression on his face cemented further. But Jocelyn wasn’t to be put off. Warming to her subject and ignoring the emotional flashing red lights indicating the oncoming train, she blithely continued.

“So do not think that I can be bullied, told what to do, hell, for today, I could probably bite through steel.”

Liam paused for a moment to process the information. Then he gave Jocelyn a broad grin as he leaned on the doorframe, arms folded across his chest. She remembered that smile well. It could heat her up so hot her panties were in danger of bursting into flames.

“Had a hard day at the office, dear?”

Jocelyn stopped for a second, stunned and then broke into a laugh.

“Yes, I guess you could say I did.” Then shook her head and offered her hand. “Let me try this again. Hello, Liam, I haven’t seen you in a long time, and you haven’t changed much. It doesn’t sound like your mannerisms have changed, either. It is nice to see you again.” The playful tenor left her voice and she said, “Really nice.”

Dream Liam in some ways did exist; he was still sex on a stick. But he still spanked. Why did he have to mess up a perfect dream life scenario because today, Jocelyn could have used a perfect dream come true?

“We should go.” Liam was all business now.

?”Yes, we had better, thank you. I appreciate the ride. I was too tired to drive and just wasn’t in the mood. I apologize for being so tart.”

“And I apologize for bullying you, but I will not apologize for saying you should have checked who I was first.”

“And probably not for saying you want to spank me, I bet,” mumbled Joselyn.

“And you would be right, my dear. Thanks for reminding me that we have one last thing to cover,” was his verbal response. His physical response was to grab her as she passed him and hold her in place as he landed four solid swats to her unsuspecting bottom.

“Hey!”

Jocelyn protested loudly, but Liam could feel her relax. He was glad he had taken the chance for it told him what he needed to know. She was as receptive as before to his type of chastisement and leadership, physically and emotionally, anyway. Good thing because his hand had often itched when he was around this woman. Nice to know some things never changed.

Liam’s voice had lowered and he was serious. He chanced a glance over in her direction and he definitely meant what he said. He reached over and traced her jaw line and lightly claimed her with a possessive kiss before leading her out the door. She swayed ever so slightly into the kiss. Liam smiled.

Liam took Jocelyn’s keys and locked the door behind them. It sent a shiver of something delicious through her, the likes of which she had not felt since she last crossed a line with Liam. Jocelyn wondered how he could care how she answered the door after all this time, but she decided it was just his way. Maybe he is still a bit like my memory turned to fantasy.

After getting into the car, Liam asked Jocelyn what had happened earlier and before she knew it, she had spilled her whole day to him just like old times. Starting from the shouting match in the front office to the irritated judge, to the foster parent who dropped off their charges?the whole kit ‘n caboodle and goldfish, too. She continued the verbal explosion with the assaultive incident and ending with a traumatized child and a report due to the police. Topping it off, she added that to the horrid on-call week she had had, and that was why she was exhausted. She was even more exhausted talking about it, but she was happy she had someone to tell it to that would have nothing to say or do about the situation. She needed someone who would just listen and allow her to perform her own talk therapy. She sighed.

“Sorry for dumping, but thanks for letting me.”

Liam whistled and said, “You need a new job, Jos girl. No one should put up with that much mental, physical and emotional abuse in a day, never mind as a permanent diet.”

?”That is just what I am trying to do. Oh, here we are. I forgot to see if you knew how to get here, I was so full of myself. Thanks for listening, Liam, I actually feel better. You always made me feel better after talking to you.” The words slipped out before she could filter them.

?”I am glad to hear that, beag amh?in.”

?‘Little one,’ that was what he called her way back when. Gaelic was something she missed with the others she had dated. It wasn’t the language itself, because, without the musical lilt that the Irish put on their words, they would sound harsh, but it was the particular feeling it gave her. It was something special that Liam did for her to make her feel connected, cherished, it told her she belonged to him and him alone. Wow, she was tired.

In the last couple of weeks since Jocelyn and Mark no longer were dating, she reviewed her relationship with him. She marveled at the fact that she did not realize how controlling Mark actually had been. He never took ‘no’ for an answer, but Liam always did when it counted. That was the difference between them. Not that both were not controlling in their own way but knowing when to release that power back to her made all the difference to Jocelyn.

?It did not take any energy at all to get Mark out of her life, but the pain of failure was still there. Liam was never abusive, not even with the spankings. It was many things, but not abusive. His control of a situation had often been so subtle but absolute, that there was no struggle. Mark did not have that talent and so he aggressively took what he wanted. Liam’s control was calming compared to Mark’s that had been more of a rape and pillage. She needed that peace right now and was content to accept it tonight with Liam.

    This is the second book in the series. We are 10 years past where the last book left off. Liam and Jocelyn were unable to make their relationship work. Jocelyn broke it off, even though she still loved him. She also could not reconcile the fact that Liam spanked her. As she put it, she did not believe in spanking.

    Jocelyn is very stressed by her work. She is overwhelmed. Kelli tricks her into seeing Liam again and he just takes over. Jocelyn is torn by her feelings. She both wants him to take over and doesn\’t want him to. I\’m quite sure this is a problem a lot of women in this day have. Our society says to be independent. But, our minds and souls crave submission.

    I liked this sequel to the first book. It was well written and you get the sense that both Jocelyn and Liam have grown as people. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I give this 5 stars.

    Very well written story about a couple who reunite 10 years after their original engagement. It is hard not to be jealous of Jocelyn, as Liam is the perfect guy! You could feel their chemistry. There is a lot of talking and analyzing of feelings in this book. We are further introduced to Liam\’s brothers, which I am hoping will be the subjects of the next books in the O\’Connors series.

    From book 1, Her Sweet Complication to book 2, ten years has passed, the engagement of Liam and Jocelyn had ended and each had eventually moved on in their lives and careers. Kelli and Jocelyn are still friends and both living in California. When Kelli needs Liam’s help in a business venture she insist that Jocelyn attend dinner as a go-between, Liam and Jocelyn still seem to have some spark left. Neither has married, she is out of a bad relationship, his engagement to another has ended, but apparently their love for each other hasn’t died. Can Liam and Jocelyn find a happy meeting ground? She has just about worked herself to death while trying to further her education for her career. Liam lays out rules for her, deadlines and expectations. Jocelyn working in child and family protection consistently tells him she does not believe in spankings, that she is against violence and hitting. Can this dominate take-charge alpha male prove to his independent feisty female his love for her is for life, he will not bend on rules and spanking is different than hitting?

    My first book by this author and writing as a reviewer. Can I say, the writing is tight and short of a few mishaps with edits, I found her delightful. Enjoyed the characters, the \”rocking\”sizzle between them and how author detailed the nuances and thoughts of many who are considering a DD relationship. As an independent, professional woman, I enjoyed the communication between the two characters and the emphasis on mutual respect and getting to know each other\’s personalities. I want my own Liam and HOH!!!
