Blog Tour + Review + Excerpt: When the Sun Goes Down by Erin Noelle



Title: When The Sun Goes Down
Author: Erin Noelle
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: 25th March, 2014




Trina is a quiet, reserved music teacher at an inner-city elementary school. Because of the traumatic events of her childhood, she’s skittish of people in general, but men especially frighten her. However, when Lucca Ellis appears in her life, he refuses to take no for an answer. Will he be able to help her overcome the past that has kept her a prisoner for over eight years?

Kat is a woman scorned and out for revenge. Wronged by the men in her life, she thrives on belittling and dominating all men that she comes in contact with. Her end goal is to make the one man, the one who stole her life away as a child, pay for his actions, and she doesn’t care who she has to destroy to get there.

These two lives that both thrive on control, were never supposed to overlap, but anything can happen… When the Sun Goes Down.


Review:

Holy crap, where to start ... this was a completely unexpected book.  From the synopsis, it sounded sexy and something screamed, "sign up for this one!"  Man am I glad that I did.  When the Sun Goes Down was sultry, sexy, snarky, sad at times and absolutely fun to read.  

Trina is an elementary school music teacher, she is a recluse who keeps the world at arms length ... during the day.  At night, Trina turns into Kat, a sultry, sexy, ambitious woman with a dominant confidence about her that grabs men by the balls and makes them her bitch.  Literally!  No, really, that's basically what the story is about.  Okay, not all of the story but a big chunk of the beginning is Trina dolling herself up, settling into her weekly routine of specific colored outfits on specific days of the week, finding a guy at a place of her choosing and making him beg her to give him the release he seeks.  Why does she doe this?  Well she's got a vendetta against all man kind to settle and she does just that one man at a time.  She's assisted in this by long time friend, lover and a bodyguard of sorts, Leo, who has been taking care of Miss Kat in more ways then one since she was 14 years old.  

In walks Lucca Ellis.  The newest 2nd Grade Teacher at the Brooklyn Elementary where Trina teaches.  How do they meet, well by smashing his face in accidentally with a door.  The rest as they say is history right?!  Wrong!  Trina and Lucca both have pasts they'd rather not share with the other but Lucca feels this need deep in his bones to protect Trina from the world.  Trina has been working to get back at her father since he killed her mother right in front of her eyes when she was 14.  She vowed in front of a packed court house that she'd kill him one day and ever since she's been on the war path to do just that, bringing one man a night to his knees to make him pay for any indiscretion he's ever had toward a woman, no matter who they are.  Now that Lucca is in her life, Trina must dig deep to decide if he's the one that she'll finally let close enough to her and let the vendetta go once and for all.

Such an incredible story, the characters were utterly fascinating to read about and well developed.  Erin Noelle's writing style flows beautifully and her story commands your attention.  I couldn't put the book down!  I've not read anything else by this immensely talented Author but I plan to here in the very near future.  I also can't wait to see her again in Chicago.  I'm desperately hoping that she'll write Leo's story because there's one that begs to be told.  Bravo Erin!  Pick this one up ladies, you won't be disappointed.




Excerpt:

When the Sun Goes Down
~ Kat ~
              Loud cheers from the pool match draw my attention back to that side of the room. Apparently it’s over, because all I can see is money being exchanged all over the place. Moments later, two guys emerge from the mob, talking and laughing as they walk towards the bar. They actually look pretty similar; both have short brown hair, are well-built, and are dressed in fitted t-shirts and jeans with visible tattoos covering their arms. They both look me up and down as they step up to order their drinks and give me a smirk. They carry themselves as if they are something pretty special, at least they think so. The fire inside of me is lit. The game is on.
              An hour later, I send Leo a text that I’m ready to be picked up. The game ended up being child’s play; the boys unable to think with more than their cock. After they invited me over to their table to “teach” me how to shoot pool, I let them think I had no idea what I was doing, so that they could lean me over and press their bodies against mine while I held their “sticks.” It really took everything inside of me not to roll my eyes on numerous occasions, but the death stares that I was getting from all of the females in the bar made it worth playing along. A few minutes later, I exit the bar with not one, but both of the guys. I usher them into the backseat of the SUV and then crawl over one to sit in between them.
              Leo gets behind the wheel and asks, “Where to this evening, Miss?”
              “To the Hyatt at Union Square, and make it quick,” I snap at him. He simply nods and pulls away from the curb.
              The guys on either side of me - which I honestly can’t even remember their names at the moment except that they both start with a J - are breathing heavily and I can see their erections bulging in their pants. Neither of them has said a word nor even attempted to touch me since we’ve walked out of The Edge; just with the appearance that I have money and authority, I’ve taken control of the situation. They sit silently, waiting for my instructions.
              As we make our way to the hotel, I put one of my hands in each of their laps, unzipping their jeans and reaching inside to free their cocks. Both of them let out a series of moans and hisses as I grab their shafts and begin to slowly move my hands up and down. They refuse to look at each other’s cock even though they are less than eighteen inches from one another, which gives me a great idea for the night. The guy on the right, who I decide to call J1, finally gets the nerve up to place his hand high up on my thigh just before we reach our destination.
              I release them as we pull up in the valet drive. “Make yourselves presentable until we get in the room,” I instruct. They quickly tuck themselves back in their pants and zip up. I grab my fun bag from under the seat as we exit the car. I lead them through the lobby without stopping at the front desk, straight into the elevator and to the suite that I keep a key to. What can I say? Money is powerful.
              Ushering the guys into the room, I waste no time to get to business. “Strip and get on the bed,” I order them as I place the bag and my purse on the table and slip off my shoes.
              One of the J’s decides he’s going to test my authority. “Why do you get to make all the rules?”
              Without turning around, I pull my sweater over my head and unzip my skirt, allowing it to pool at my feet. I bend over to slightly to step out of my skirt and give them a nice view of my exposed, bald pussy before standing back upright. My back still turned to them, I say calmly, “If you want a piece of this sweet ass, you will strip, get on the bed, and not question me again. If you aren’t interested, you can leave now; my driver is waiting outside the door and can take you back to the bar. The choice is yours.” I hear the swishing of fabric followed by the slight creaking of the mattress. Game over… I win again.
