“Pain can leave even the strongest of people weak and hollow
Max DeLucca has spent seven years trying to forget the betrayal of his past.
He lives his life from day to day never looking forward and never looking back.
The walls around his heart keep anyone from getting too close and prevent him from feeling too much… until he meets her.
Her entire life, Janie Silver searched for the kind of love that wouldn’t leave her broken and more importantly, wouldn’t leave her behind. She longs for a love that can heal the wounds of her past and give her the future she knows she deserves.
She thought she was looking for something that just didn’t exist…until she meets him.
Danny’s on Main is where their story begins.
A neighborhood bar where strangers become friends, friends become family
and some … become lovers
… it all started on Thursday Nights”
Max knew Janie well enough to know his words hurt her. She looked physically pained every time he shut her out. While he wasn’t lying when he said the problem wasn’t her, it left a fresh scar on his heart every time he saw the ache he inflicted flash through her eyes. The need to see her face was overwhelming.
He had to look in her aqua eyes and make her understand that he wasn’t worth her time or her heart.
The bathroom door was all that stood between them. He lifted his hand to the doorknob, wanting so badly to open it and go to her.
He could envision her beautiful, naked body through the steam coming from the shower, the water trickling down her soft skin. Stripping himself down and sliding into the shower behind her. His large hands moving around her narrow waist, grazing over her ribcage and trailing up until he caressed her breasts. His thumb and forefinger rolling her nipples as he leans into her neck and drags his tongue up the long column until he reaches her jaw. Slowly turning her around, the water pounding at her back, he bends forward and begins a slow assault using his lips, his tongue, and his teeth. Her nipples pebble between his fingers, and a slow husky moan bubbles up from her throat, giving voice to her approval of his touch. She whimpers when he moves one hand from her breast and slowly lets it travel down her belly over her pubic bone. She runs her own hand up along his jaw and into his wet blond hair, pulling his head closer to her neck just as he strokes the hard nub between her thighs. She moans when he uses the pad of his finger to fondle her clit, and he can feel her body start to tremble and tighten. He’s not ready to let her come because that would mean he’d be letting her go, so he sinks first one finger, and then two, into her moist heat and begins a slow rhythm in and out of her cunt. “Oh, Max. Oh my God.” Her body is shaking, and her pussy is creaming on his fingers as he’s licking her neck, her jaw, and finally her lips. As he continues to fuck her with his fingers, he uses his thumb to rub her clit, finally bringing her over the edge. He can feel the walls of her sex milking his fingers as he whispers his apology and his love into her ear.
I am UNDONE!!! Thursday Nights by Lisa N. Paul was fantastic!
Thursday nights is a complex story of Janie and Max and their journey to love! Max is a steamy bartender in the local bar who befriends the Thursday night regulars, Janie and Lyla! Both women use that night as their venting sessions for just how lousy the dates are in their lives! Janie however cant help but notice just how HOT Max is!! Could they be friends with benefits she wondered??
Sometimes behind every beautiful cover there is a nasty story that is waiting to be told. Max has such a story. I spent many a page BEGGING for Max to tell her all his fears and let love find them! Will it work out in the end?
Thursday nights left me hanging but in a good way! It will be great reconnecting with Max, Janie and the rest of the gang to see how the story plays out! There is also some mystery behind one of Max’s friend Gage and his newly found obsession with Lyla. Hmmmmmm makes me wonder…. will there be a spin off book?? HOPE SO!!!
Lisa N. Paul does FANTASTIC character development and uses it to really beef the book up. You really have the chance to get to know more than just the 2 main people in the book. There are many avenues she can take it and I will gladly follow! I give Thursday Nights 4.5 stars for its complex story line and fantastic love story! – Debi
