 “I need you to believe me. You ...” She hit him again with what little mobility he left her with. “You need to believe me.”

He bent and looked directly at her. “I believe you.” Then he pulled her against his chest and kissed her forehead. “I do.”
She melted against his hard body. “You’re the assassin in this room, remember?”

“That’s right. I am.” He pushed her back to the wall. His tone turned low and deep. “It probably disgusts you. You probably want to run from me.” His hard body held hers in place and his thick cock pushed against her hip.

“No.” She focused on him. “I want you.” She blew out a breath. “Don’t push me away.”

He brushed her collar bone with a feather light touch. “Why aren’t you frightened of me?”

“Don’t you see? This Aidan doesn’t scare me.” She dragged her teeth across her bottom lip. “This Aidan makes me come undone.” Warmth flooded her core. All she wanted now was for Aidan to command her body, bring them together in a way that erased all the ugliness bombarding their lives.

He brushed her hair behind her shoulders and then dragged his touch down the side of her neck and to her breast, “Do you know what else we use this room for?”

“Tea and biscuits?” A bubble of tension tingled along her fingers and toes.

“Cute.” He tugged on a lock of her hair. “Gavin originally commandeered it for interrogations but the room’s purpose changed once Ethan brought in the furniture.”

“That bench.” She pointed to the one with different levels. “It’s not just a bench.”

“Nope. You trust me?”

“I do. I’m not scared of you either, Aidan. I’m scared of losing you, losing your trust. You’re all I’m hanging on to.” She pressed her palms to his firm chest. “Please tell me you believe me.”

“I do, baby. I’m sorry I had to ask you those questions. I couldn’t get through it unless I questioned you like I did. But now that it’s done and we’re in this room I can’t ignore what we need. Tell me again you trust me.”

“I trust you, Sir.” She held still.

“Submit to me. Here, in this room, will you submit to me?” His gaze darkened.

“It would be my honor, Sir.” She took a deep breath.

“All you have to say is red and I’ll stop. Do you understand?”

“Yes, Sir. I understand.” She waited for his command. With each second, her heart eased into an even rhythm.


Elizabeth Martin thought she had finally gotten her happily ever after when she married Reese Martin. Life was great, until one day it wasn't. Her world was turned upside down and the mystery surrounding Reese's disappearance only makes matters worse. Just when she thinks she knows up from down, she thrown another curve ball.

Aidan Clery is man that knows how to stay in the shadows, which is perfect to the work he does. He knows what needs to be done, and he does it. No questions asked. The only problem he has is the growing need he has to find that special someone. He never thought the life he leads would be conducive in a relationship, but watching his friend and business partner find love has giving him some hope.

Aidan's latest job puts him in the path of Liz, and after one look, one taste, he'll do anything and everything to protect her. He knows she's the one for him, even if doesn't believe he deserves her. As long as he protect her from an unknown assailant, makes sure no harm will ever come to her, he'll be to walk away, right?

Unexpected Destiny is everything you would expect from SJ and more. This book is filled with a mystery that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat wondering what will happen next, will Aidan be able to keep Liz safe? Just when you think you know what to expect, you are thrown a curveball.

But there is also a seductive love story that will tug at your heartstrings. The passion between Aidan and Liz is electrifying, heating up the pages leaving the reader thirsty for more. Aidan's dominance will have you weak in knees, begging for him to take you over and over again. He's a man that isn't afraid to push your limits, knowing what you need, what you desire, and able to give it all to you.

I loved watching Liz evolve as the story unfolds. She's a big a shy thing in the beginning, but in the end she's a strong, independent woman that will do whatever it takes to get what she wants. I adore how she can push Aidan's buttons like no one else. She's a fiesty thing that shouldn't be trifled with.

Unexpected Destiny is a thrilling, sensual, love story with a touch of mystery that you won't be able to put down. If you're looking for a book that is a perfect escape from the humdrum of everyday life, than look no further. This is a mesmerizing book in a series that just keeps getting better and better.

SJ Gives Us A Little Insight Into Aidan and Liz

Aidan and Liz were destined to find each other. But life had several twists in store for them before they'd ever actually meet. Here's a look at a few of the things that ultimately brought them together.

During their adolescents, they spent a good bit of time living only a few blocks apart. I like to think he might have helped her with her bags once or maybe she threw a wayward ball back in his direction. Although, they both had lots to learn about themselves and they'd have to wait for love.

They both have close friends for which they'd do just about anything for. 

Both Aidan and Liz were lucky enough to know their grandmothers well before they past. Aidan keeps his grandma close by remembering her infamous quotes about love and life. I like to think she knew Aidan would find love with Elizabeth and did the best she could to prepare him to be the man she'd need. Liz keeps her grandmother close by wearing her locket. Liz believes it gives her strength, but what Aidan will help her see is her stength has been inside her all along.

Liz and Aidan both enjoy beer. They may have come to appreciate it from different angles, but once they see it through each other, a whole new understanding takes hold. That can be said for so much they have in common. ;) Oddly enough, it might just be their love for beer that finally has their paths cross at the right time.

I knew from the beginning, these two deserved happy endings. As I got to know them and fell in love with their wit and kind hearts, I was totally unprepared for the thrilling ride their road to love would take. It all seemed so simple at first, two people destined to fall in love. But what happens is anything but expected.
