I can't enjoy the damn movie. I don't understand why I can’t stop thinking about him. Snap out of it. He is your friend. You share almost everything. Except sex! Oh, there’s the problem. But I can have sex with him. Oh, stop it! Get that out of your mind. Sex! There it goes again! What would I say?

"I want you--naked, sweaty, on the floor, the wall, or anywhere I can get you." The words were out before she even realized she’d spoken aloud.

She looked into his shocked face, horrified. "Please tell me I did not say that out loud.” She felt her cheeks heat in mortification.

A roughish grin spread over his face as Reese replied, “Yes, you did.”

“I didn’t mean it. I’m in a huge nightmare. Forget I said it.” Jasmine covered her eyes, bending her head forward.

“No, I won’t forget it.” His voice deepened, sounding even sexier.

“You always had a mean streak in you. I don’t know why you can’t give me a break and do something I say for once,”  she rambled through her splayed fingers.

Reese reached over, lifted her hands from her eyes, then put them over her mouth, gazing at her. She was startled by the desire she saw etched on his face.

“Jazz, stop. You said it, and if you would let me reply: I agree.”  

Her eyes widened as Reese slowly let go of her hands.

She stared at him, dumbfounded. What do I do now? She breathed in and out quickly. Fear choked her.

“Jazz, are you hyperventilating on me? Say something. Come on, don’t lose it on me. I’ve been waiting for this for two years.”

“Why? When?” she croaked.

“When what?” he asked. Jasmine stared at him. He stared back at her with a look that dared her to say it, and she never backed down from a dare.

“When do you want to do it?”

“It? You can do better than that. Tell me what you want, and I might answer you,”  Reese arrogantly replied.

“Sex! All right? Sex! There. I said it! You are so frustrating. Happy now?”

Smugly, he replied, “Yes, I am. Now.”

“Now what? You want to torture me some more?”

He looked at her with a raised eyebrow.

“Oh. You mean, ‘now’?” She was looking into his heated hazel eyes. Only, they were no longer hazel, but had liquefied into a steaming topaz. The desire she saw in them took her breath away. Shaking her head, she backed away from him. Nodding, he followed her. Recovering from her surprise, she stopped backing up and stood her ground.

“Stop looking at me like that.”

“Like what?”

“Like I’m an ice cream cone you can’t wait to lick up and down.”

“I don’t want to lick you up and down.”

She released a quick breath.

“I want to eat you whole.”

Reviews of  Conquering Jazz...


Brenda at The Romance Studio gives FIVE Hearts! She says in part: “What a book this turned out to be! This was one of the sweetest storylines I have read. It was literally woven into and through the sexual scenes of the book. The further I read, the more thrilled I became that this was book number one of the series.

This was my first encounter with Ms. McKenna Jeffries, but I assure you it will not be my last. This book was not just erotic, it was scorching. From the earliest pages to the last word, this work of art was packed with in-depth, detailed sexual incidents. The animalistic events that occurred in this book were seemingly exhaustive yet they were not offensive. The high percentage of sexual encounters in this work did not leave the plot lacking. Far from it. The story was beautiful and the characters were so lovable that it was impossible not to fall for them. The supporting cast was equally as captivating. There was enough interaction that I promise you, too, will be anxiously awaiting the other stories. Her writing style is dynamic and remarkable. I promise you a wonderful read that you will not soon forget.
