'After Party Affair' by Isabel Raven

After Party Affair

by Isabel Raven



Nineteen-year-old Becky Smithton never imagined she’d be invited to her friend, Lorna’s, birthday bash only to be humiliated. The party is over and Becky’s seething with fury, wandering outside and itching for revenge. But what can she do to get back at Lorna and her snobbish mother? A walk through the woods and a chance encounter with Lorna’s bodilicous father, Grant, presents the perfect opportunity. Seducing the dark, handsome—and forbidden—thirty-eight year old should be easy, right? But Grant is made of stronger stuff than other men and soon it’s Becky who’s struggling with frustrated desire. What’s more, her heart is doing funny things and so is her mind, filling her with sudden what-the-hell? pregnancy fantasies involving Grant. As for her body, well, it’s naked and wet, and all she wants is for Grant to dive into the swimming pool and give her what she craves—shallow and deep. After all, if her seduction succeeds then their tryst would only be a meaningless, after party affair… Right?

Read an excerpt:
I smoothed my hand up Grant’s six pack and down his iron hard biceps. “Nice,” I murmured.

His lips curled into a smile and then he caught himself and erased it. “I’m sure there are plenty of men who’d love to hear you say that,” he said gruffly. “You need to find another boyfriend.”

“Romance is overrated, but never mind, I won’t have a chance for any of that this summer, not with working two jobs.”

“Are you okay for money?” he asked seriously. “No, please don’t look at me like that or get offended. I’m not offering you charity. If you need a loan you can count on me to help you.”

I was touched, but was his offer made out of polite, disinterested concern or was he truly worried about me running out of funds? “Your necklace would probably fetch a lot of money,” I said, feigning indifference. “The pendant is encrusted with real diamonds, right?”

Grant frowned. “You would sell my gift?”

My chest did a happy little flip. ‘My’ gift, he’d said tellingly, and not ‘our.’ Despite his previous words, Kate had had nothing to do with my necklace; he’d bought it for me himself. “I would never sell anything you gave me, Grant.” I pressed a soft kiss on his rigid lips, gradually coaxing him into responding to my touch, and then we were back to exchanging longer, slower kisses, sweeter than any ‘thank you’ and ‘you’re welcome’ could ever be.

“I shouldn’t be kissing you,” he said.

I rolled my eyes. “Jesus, Grant, lighten up. What’s a few small kisses? No tongue, no foul. I like you, sure, but you’re my best friend’s father.”

  1. When did you decide to become a writer?

  2. Hi Mai! I used to pen stories when I was bored, travelling on long flights for my job. One day I decided to see if anybody liked them and to my surprise my friends did. So I wrote more stories for them, and e-mailed them before they went on holiday. Everything flowed from there. All the best, Isabel

  3. Thanks for hosting me, sorry I missed posting yesterday. I was travelling! All the best, Isabel
