It’s Release Day for TORQUE by Shauna Allen!
TORQUE is here!
Shauna Allen’s newest contemporary romance novel
in her Jack ‘Em Up series!
The darkness that fills him . . . the pain . . . they call to me.
I see so much more than his crime, his past, his demons.
I see the promise . . . the man who fills all the empty spaces inside me.
I’m not the perfect, untouchable girl he thinks I am. I’m just dirty enough to take what I want.
I could never deserve her.
She is the light . . . the sun, the moon, a billion stars.
She gives me hope.
But hope is a dangerous thing for a criminal like me.
I am hopeless.
We are more than opposites.
We are the dangerously perfect collision of dark and light and pain.

Did she honestly have no idea how close I was to saying ‘fuck it’ and throwing her down on her dining room table to taste her for the first time?
“Jesse . . .”
I waited, not sure I trusted myself to speak. I may be well read and reasonably intelligent, but right now I was practically drunk and stupid on her scent.
“What’s going on here, Jesse?” Her voice was rough and whisper soft.
Tread carefully, man. “Nothing. You’re hiring me to fix your bike—”
“That’s not what I meant and you know it.”
I sighed and ran a hand through my hair. “I know.”
I met her fierce gaze. “And I’m a felon, Rachel.” I would not voice the rest. Never. That was enough.
“So? You served your sentence.”
Ha. “I’m on parole for the next year. I’m not a normal guy who can just . . .”
“Just what? Spit it out, Joyner!”
That fine tether of control snapped deep inside me. Without another thought, I prowled toward her, intent on showing her just how she needed to stay away from me.
Her eyes widened, and with each step I took in her direction, she backed up one until I had her against the wall, our chests mere inches from each other. I brushed a wayward curl from her face, where it stuck to her lip.
Her eyes stayed pinned to mine. Wide, observant, but not scared. “Say it,” she pleaded.
“I can’t want you like this, Rachel. You need to stay away from me. I’m no good for you.”
Her breath heaved in and out, making her chest brush mine, as we stared each other down.
Seconds ticked by. She licked her lips. I thought I’d implode.
“Why don’t you let me decide what’s good for me?”
Then she tugged my head down and her mouth was on mine. Her tongue brushed my lips and I couldn’t help my moan as I gave myself over to her completely. It was my first taste of paradise. Dark and sweet and dangerously perfect.
