About BLACKSTONE

I am meticulous. Structured. A single father.

I obsess over things and crave control.

And when a hot, feisty little woman throws a wrench in my carefully laid out plans, I lose my mind.

My every thought revolves around making her bend to my will—until they become less about her doing things my way and more about just her.

My name is Trevor Blackstone.

I am an obsessive, complicated, demanding man.

People may not understand me, but it doesn’t stop them from wanting me.

From the moment I saw this series it got my attention. These are 4 books written by 4 different authors in 4 different genres. This is Trevor Blackstone’s story. He is wealthy, sexy and one of the founders of the Four Fathers empire.

I love characters like Trevor who are so unique. He is a math prodigy and his mind works in numbers. He is constantly figuring out equations and calculating probabilities. Even though he is highly intelligent, he appears strange to others as he mumbles numbers constantly especially when he is stressed. He and Lucy don’t meet under the best circumstance but there is an instant attraction.

Lucy was an interesting character. She was essentially jobless and recently just got out of a bad relationship and she is now “trying to find herself”. I thought her character was funny at times and there were bits of humor that complemented this story. There is an age gap with Trevor being in his mid 40’s and Lucy in her 20’s but honestly you don’t really notice and there was no element of taboo. I was a little disappointed because I was expecting a single dad story as the blurb states but while technically true, his son is 20, in college and we don’t actually meet him.

The sexual intensity is strong in this book and it kind of starts right away. No slow burn here. There were a few scenes that these characters actually talked and got to know each other but there was A LOT OF SEX in this book. The scenes were HOT and very well done. I did wish that we got more of an emotional connection with these characters and I could have done with one less sex scene.

I loved the fast pace of the book and I was never bored. If you are looking for a short, hot read with characters that have great sexual chemistry then give this book a try.

Read an excerpt from BLACKSTONE

“You shouldn’t use those stairs,” I yell, startling her. She wobbles, grabbing for the banister, giving me another scare. The thing looks ready to fall off.

“Jesus, Numbers, you scared the piss outta me,” she yelps, glaring at me like she wants to rip my head off. And I don’t care, so long as she gets down those bunk stairs. That’s when she starts bouncing on each step.

“Don’t fucking do that. Those aren’t safe,” I snap back.

“Don’t do what, this?” She jumps again, slamming her feet back down on another step. My anger spikes. Is she out of her fucking mind? Can’t she see the stairs wobbling under her? She repeats the same gesture to the next two steps, giving me palpitations. The reoccurring effect has her falling through in less than seven more jumps. I glance over, noticing she’s only using one hand to hold onto the railing and has a bottle in her other.

“Are you drunk?” I ask, now worried about her state of mind. She won’t be able to catch herself if she falls.

“Super drunk actually. Thanks for asking. Now, mind your own business.” She makes it to the bottom of the stairs. Relief washes over me as I watch her walk onto the sand and dig her toes into the cool peddles of the sea. Then, she stumbles and trips. “Whoa! I’m okay!” she squeals, catching herself before she falls face-first into the sand.

I’m curious what she’s up to. Until my mind figures it out. “You can’t go in the water. It’s not safe at night.” I’m frozen, waiting for her to listen to me and turn back around. But she doesn’t.

“Yeah, yeah, I’ve seen you in it all week at night. Nice try.” She keeps walking. The tide has picked up the last couple days due to it being hurricane season. If I weren’t trained to handle the choppiness of the waves, I wouldn’t have been out there either.

“Yeah, and I know the water. You don’t. Stay out of there,” I demand. Why the fuck is she still walking? Christ, she’s wobbling down to the water. The farther she gets, the harder it is to see her. The half-crescent moon glows against the water, but it’s still so dark, I struggle to see anything but her silhouette. “Hey!” I yell, but this time, she doesn’t respond.

I drop the bar of soap and run through the sand on high alert, listening for any signs of struggle. What the hell is wrong with this girl? Unsynchronized splashing. I go to call her name, but realize I don’t even know it. Numbers, letters, and equations blast though my head at the chances I guess it right. It’s undefinable, due to the various coed names—

“Hey!” I yell toward where I last spotted her. My feet slam into the sand, hitting the lining of the ocean shore and—

“BOO!”

I jump, losing my balance, and fall back into the cool ocean water.

“Holy shit! You should see your face!” She laughs. I wipe the water off my face as she stands above me, laughing, holding her chest. “Oh, man. For such a big guy, you sure do scare easily. I wish I record—”

Pushing to my feet, I tackle her, taking the last words right out of her mouth. She squeals as I bear hug her body to my chest and walk furiously with her in my tight hold into the cold water.

“Oh my God! Stop! It’s freezing!” She kicks back and forth, trying to fight her way out of my grip. “Ahhh! Stop, please stop! It’s fucking cold!” I don’t stop until we’re almost shoulder deep under. “Hold your breath.” Her eyes shine in the moonlight, a battle warring behind them. She realizes my next move and doesn’t know whether to yell or obey. My face remains stoic, serious, and she takes a deep breath as I sink us both beneath the water’s surface.

When I pop back up, she has her arms and legs wrapped around me, the struggle forgotten. Her hair is soaked, covering her face. I lift my hand to brush it off, giving me the pleasure of her eyes. Green. Wide. She knows I’m lost in the sight of her. She seems to be doing the same. Her firm tits press nicely against my chest, and she has to be dumb not to feel my hard cock, even in the cold temperature.

It’s then I remember I don’t have any shorts on. A few seconds pass before she comes to the same realization. “Are you naked?” she asks, her voice hoarse. I can’t help the urge I allow to happen. Using my hand straddling around her taut ass, I press her into me. Fuck, that felt good. “Yep, naked,” she whispers, her lids half closed. Her actions tease me, and I press into her again, gaining another reward. This time, her eyes shut and mouth parts. Hell knows what’s changed between earlier today and now, but my dick tells me I should keep going until she tells me to fuck off.

“You okay with this?” I bend, putting my lips on her bare shoulder, and suck on her skin, which is softer than I expected.

“I don’t like you, but I’m really horny and you’re hot, so yep, let’s do this.”
