Thankful, Not Thankful

In my continuing theme of being the human version of grumpy cat, I’m making a Thankful, Not Thankful list. Following the general idea behind “Sorry, not sorry” here are a list of things I’m sort of thankful for, but which can also go fuck themselves. Feel free to join in!

Lila’s Thankful, Not Thankful List

I’m thankful for… Public transportation. Good for the environment, keeps me from paying for parking, etc. But the guy driving the eastbound 38 bus who BLEW by me yesterday can go straight to hell. Yes, I was sitting down. I’m fat and it was early!

I’m thankful for… Iron pills. How amazing that there’s a simple pill that you can use to combat anemia. But seriously fuck your side effects. Fuck ‘em.

I’m thankful for… Baby Information. I have what 50 years ago would have been unheard of access information about what’s going on with my body and the baby. But fuck some of these books and apps. You’re freaking me out. I do not want to know that there are people out there who had the same due date as me who have already delivered premie babies. It’s making me paranoid and weird. Okay, weirder.

I’m thankful for… Sales. My mom and I love to sit around and look at holiday sales flyers, plan out gifts for people, and then make a great “adventure” out of going shopping. But now retailers can suck it. It used to be fun and slightly entertaining to try and be someplace at 7am on Black Friday, standing outside with other turkey filled people drinking hot chocolate. You open at 5pm on Thanksgiving? Screw you I’m not going shopping at all.

I’m thankful for… All my friends. From amazing readers to my IH girls, you all are awesome. But…some of you are seriously cracked in the head. Like, for real, your ass is cray cray. ;)

Here’s the blurb “C is for…” coming very, very soon.

C is for…

The A, B, Cs have never been so sexy.

Beth is the perfect sub: quiet, obedient, and well trained. After years of membership in LA’s most exclusive BDSM club she’s served many of the most demanding masters and mistresses…and she’s bored.

James is a committed Dom who enjoys nothing more than a bratty sub he can “punish” until they’re both satisfied. The last thing he wants is a serious submissive.

Beth is on the verge of leaving the club when she’s paired with Master James as part of the BDSM checklist game. They’re both surprised to find that the hyper-obedient Beth is hiding the true depth of her submission, and James will have to decide if he’s willing to break his own rules to give Beth what she needs.

Are you ready for the Holidays?

Normally I love the Holidays. Really I love anything with a theme that I can explore. Theme birthday parties, any kind of shower, conference events and holidays are all just begging for me to go wild on pinterest in preparation for some hard core crafting, baking, sewing, etc.

Normally I cannot fathom people who don’t get into the Holidays (or anything else for that matter). Why would anyone pass up the opportunity to expend time and energy on awesomeness?

Well, friends who normally grit your teeth to get through it, this year please count me among your numbers this year. I will cheerfully take off my shoe and beat a “Happy Holidays” wishing retail worker to death. Seriously. This might get violent.

For the Americans reading this, you have my deepest sympathies that Thanksgiving is only a few short days away. For everyone else, those who don’t have Thanksgiving to act as an (ineffective) speed bump before the season really hits, you have my sympathy that you’re already down in it.

You know what this week needs? Smutty, smutty books. Here’s a sneak peak at a book I have coming out soon. Very, very soon.

Do you like friends-to-lovers romance?

Are you a fan of friends-to-lovers romance?

I am. I’m such a massive fan, I seem to return to the theme in my books over and over again. In fact, I love it so much, I decided not just to write a book on this trope – but an entire series.

The Sunday Night Dinner Club is based around a group of friend who meet every few weeks for dinner. It’s their way of ensuring they see one another regularly in the chaotic everyday lives they lead.


Party Of Three, the first book in the series, focuses on two best friends and their mutual love for one very sexy restaurant owner.

But it’s the second book, Table for Two, I’d like to focus on in this post. And the reason is…IT RELEASES TODAY!

*happy dancing*


So, what’s this book about?

I think the blurb explains it best:



Sunday Night Dinner Club, Book 2

James Elliot never meant to barge into his friend’s bedroom, but now that he’s caught an eyeful of Olivia Taylor, butt-naked, he can’t seem to imagine her any other way.

Liv’s world is falling apart. The goals she’s worked so hard to achieve are crumbling. The only thing she can rely on now is the constant stability her friends provide.

But one of those friends is changing the dynamics of their relationship. James is whipping away everything that’s familiar between them and replacing it with a sensuality and a passion Liv can’t ignore.

With so much at stake, Liv has no time to fall in love—even if it’s with her best friend. It’s up to James to guide her through the toughest challenge of her life and show her that the light on the other side of the tunnel just might burn between them forever.

Warning: Contains all the red-hot loving you’d expect from a Jess Dee romance, and a sexy, sports-mad, muscle-bound alpha hero with a penchant for tossing his heroine over his shoulder.


Table for Two can be enjoyed as a stand alone book, or read as part of the series.

The choice is yours.

Happy reading



Now Available: Kisses Sweeter Than Wine

The third and final book in the sexy, romantic and titillating Tastes of Seduction series, Kisses Sweeter Than Wine, is now available.



One sip of passion leaves them thirsty for more…

Tastes of Seduction, Book 3

Declan Muirfield never planned to return to the hotel where he broke a woman’s heart and destroyed his prospects for a happy ever after. Until he finds himself strapped in Noah Martin’s passenger seat, being driven—against his better judgment—back to the scene of his crime.

Noah’s spent too many years watching while Declan’s lived the life he’s expected to lead rather than following his heart and living the life he wants. Now Noah’s had enough. It’s time for Declan to confront his past so he can embrace his future—with Noah, as it was meant to be.

And if that future should include a beguiling woman with honey-gold hair, all the better. Under the guise of a working weekend, Noah has invited Violet Harper to join them at the luxury vineyard hotel. Perhaps now the unspoken connection between Violet, Declan and himself can finally develop into something tangible.

Almost immediately, sparks flare out of control, and clothes come flying off in a hot whirlwind of desire. But convincing Declan and Violet that the three of them belong together may prove to be the hardest task Noah has ever undertaken.

Warning: A bottle of white? A bottle of red? Perhaps a bottle of bubbly instead?

Ah, hell, just bring ’em all. We all know good things come in threes.

KISSES – A short, dirty excerpt:

Declan was kissing her. After two years of wanting him and eighteen months of suppressing that ardor, he was finally kissing her. And doing a very thorough, very skillful job of it. His mouth drove her wild, teasing, taunting, tasting. It roused a passion she’d kept tamped down for a very long time.

He kissed her—with the same mouth he’d had on Noah’s cock just a few short hours ago—while Noah watched.

Violet fancied she could taste the salty tang of Noah’s come, even though lunch and the wine had probably washed away any remnants. The thought alone was enough to incite a yearning so fierce she wrapped a leg around Declan’s and rubbed her pussy against his cock, grateful for the heels that lent her the height to do so. Without them, Declan would tower over her.

The hand on her ass slid down her leg, finding her thigh. Gooseflesh erupted and then flared up her leg and down as he pushed her skirt up, up, up and over her ass. It sat above her hips in a messy creased bunch. She didn’t care.

Declan shifted them both, walking Violet a few steps back—to reveal her bottom to Noah.


Kisses is available right now at your favorite ebookstore:
