Synopsis

No one said finding love was easy, but when you invented the world’s bestselling vibrator, it’s near impossible. Yep, that’s right. That little toy hidden in your bedside table is my brain child. It’s aptly named Woman on Top. And you know what they say . . . it’s lonely at the top.

So I’m headed home to my Southern roots. It’s supposed to be an extended Summer vacation — nothing more. But Rorke Weston has other plans for me. Plans that not only involve me being on top, but also underneath him.

It’s been said you never forget your first. For me, that’s definitely true. No night has ever lived up to the one I spent with Rorke.

He’s turned into quite a man. Tan from the Southern sun, and stubborn as the day is long. And there’s nothing sweeter than the swipe of his tongue.

Rorke wants his chance.  The one we never had.  But that was a long time ago.  When I still believed in Prince Charming and Happily Ever Afters.  Even ten years later, I feel a pull.  And it’s not simply Rorke yanking down my panties.

Do second chances really happen?  Or is my heart simply toying with me?

My Review

Toying with Her by Author Prescott Lane is a friends-to-lovers and second chance at love story.

“She is the one that got away. We never got our chance. Now she’s back, and she thinks we can be friends? I spent my entire childhood and teenage years being ‘friends’ with her. She wants to be friends? That’s fine. I’ll be her friend. But I’ll be damned if that’s all I am.”

Sterling Jamison and Rorke Weston grew up together and were best of friends.  Rorke’s heart has belonged to Sterling since that time, but the timing was never right to let her know. Now she’s back, and better than ever.  He sees her. She sees him.  And their worlds are viewed in a whole new light.

“I think I might have always been waiting for you to come back.”

Do you love the sugary sweet southern charm of Sweet Home, Alabama and the sass of The Help?  Then you will LOVE Toying With Her. Set in the state of Alabama, surrounded by nosy neighbors, half-wit townspeople, and narrow-minded snobs, Toying With Her is a definite dive into the world of love in a small town. Being from the south, this novel was a warm blanket on a cold day. Comforting and feel-good.

“I know you’re used to being in control of your pleasure. But that ends right now. When you need an orgasm, I’ll provide it. When you want a kiss, I’m your man. You may be the woman on top, but I’m the man holding you up there.”

Strong-willed but tender hearted, Sterling Jamison did not take anyone’s crap. She was smart, educated, witty, and quick.  She definitely gave Rorke a run for his money.  He was stubborn and wanted to be the man she deserved.  But, he loved her with every fiber in his being.  When he turned on the Rorke charm, every heart throbbed and burned with delight. There was no doubt in my mind that from page one until the last word that Sterling and Rorke’s life-connection was written in the stars.

“If love is dirty, I want to be dirty with her. If love makes me blind, I want her by my side, leading the way. If love is patient and kind, it’s because so is she. If my love is stubborn, it’s only because I won’t let her go. If love makes me drunk, I want it to be on her kiss, her taste. If love makes me stupid, what more do I need to know than her? If love makes the world go round, I only want to take that trip with Sterling. She is love. Stupid, drunk, patient, stubborn, kind, hopefully all kinds of dirty—Love.”

Throughout the novel, Author Prescott Lane invited us on a journey of second chances, but did so in various settings. The change in scenery added a freshness to Rorke and Sterling’s relationship, as they discovered each other and themselves in a new manner.  I was enthralled, thought at times also saddened, by how the past and places so deeply influenced the present.  This, coupled with the delightful and devious side characters in each locale, infused the story with the eccentricities needed for a shot of reality.

“I’ve got two arms that will always hold and protect you. Two eyes that will always see you as the most beautiful woman in the world. Two legs that will work hard to give you the life you deserve. And one heart that has and will always love you.”

Toying with Her made butterflies take flight throughout my entire body. Or maybe they were fairies.  Because, honestly, everything about it just felt so special and enchanted.  It warmed my insides, in more ways than one, playing with constant themes of commitment, love, family, and fate.

“The universe wants you to have it.”

Excerpt

I know exactly where I want this kiss to go now.  We don’t even have to move from this spot.  I can take her right up against the door.  My lips hover over hers, her chest rising and falling, my cock hard as a rock and pressed against her stomach.  The warmth between her legs calls to me, and I bend my knees, pushing into her.  She grinds right back.

“Just a kiss,” I whisper, unsure whether I’m telling myself or her.

We never just had a kiss.  We went from kissing to sex in the same breath.  And while I want her naked in my bed, I want her for more than one night this time, more than just this summer.  I want that more.  I’m not going to make it easy for her to dismiss me, dismiss this as a one-night stand or a summer fling.

I’m not going to make it easy for her to leave me.  I’m going to make it damn near impossible.

Winding my hand in her long brown hair, I lower my head, letting my breath tickle the skin of her neck.  Her body trembling, gently I trail kisses up her neck, letting my tongue linger ever so slightly.  She tries turning her head down to me, desperate for my lips, but I grip her hair a little tighter, controlling the moment.

“Rorke,” she begs breathlessly.

I know she’s used to being in control.  Hell, the woman is responsible for more orgasms than any man could ever be.  Lifting my head to look in her eyes, I say, “I know you’re used to being in control of your pleasure.  But that ends right now.  When you need an orgasm, I’ll provide it.  When you want a kiss, I’m your man.  You may be the woman on top, but I’m the man holding you up there.”
