Title: Completely Captivated
Author: A.D. Justice
Release Date: May 25, 2017
Christa was the exact opposite of every woman who’d shared my bed for a night.
All I could think about was getting to know her intimately. She completely captivated me.
Then, as usual, I screwed up everything. My life. Her life. Our love.
Now her old crush is back in town, and he set his sights on Christa. But she’s mine. I’ll be damned if he gets her.
I will win her back before he wins her over.
Aaron breezed into my coffee shop and right into my heart. He was gorgeous, confident, and sexy.
Out of all the women who threw themselves at him, he wanted me.
Against my better judgment, I took a chance. Then he took our new life away.
When I was at my darkest, my lifelong friend Jared pulled me through, only to tell me he wants to take Aaron’s place.
But can I give my heart to Jared when Aaron already stole it?
A.D. Justice has done it again, delivering tons of heart and plenty of sizzle in an utterly addictive package with Completely Captivated. Christa and Aaron’s story was sexy, fun and full of feels – an epic emotional rollercoaster that kept me riveted to the pages from start to finish. I loved the instant and heady connection between this duo and found myself effortlessly invested in their romance. Christa and Aaron’s adorable flirtations and authentic sweetness was the perfect balance to the otherwise heart-wrenching nature of their journey and A.D. Justice did an incredible job at making sure I was giggling, blushing and happy sighing my way through this novel. Completely Captivated highlighted this author’s fantastic growth as both a writer and storyteller. Told with a fresh, unique voice, this book had me falling in love with A.D. Justice’s writing all over again.
“Everything she’d ever wanted in life was within her grasp, and she felt it slipping away, like tiny grains of sand sliding through her fingers.”
One of the things I love about A.D. Justice is her great character development and Christa epitomized the kind of incredible growth I’ve come to adore from this author. Initially Christa came across as timid, stuck in the past and afraid to take a chance but there was a small spark inside of her that just needed the right fuel to transform into something fiery and passionate. Aaron proved to be the man for the job and I loved seeing Christa come into her own over the course of this story. Her bravery and willingness to fight for what she wanted really struck a chord with me and even with Jared complicating things there was an undeniable surety in the kind of woman she wanted to be that kept me firmly invested in Christa’s happily ever after.
“If she doesn’t miss you when you’re gone, there’s not much to fight for, Aaron.”
The men in Christa’s life were a little more complicated and A.D. Justice definitely threw readers for a loop with Aaron and Jared’s vastly different personalities. While Jared felt familiar and safe, I fell hard and fast for Aaron. I adored the combination of Aaron’s charming personality with the absolute resilience he displayed while winning over Christa. There was a confidence in his feelings that had me firmly set on Team Aaron long before I really knew much about either man. I enjoyed the way A.D. Justice played these characters off of one another, giving this story a hint of a love triangle without the over the top drama and infuriating emotions that can sometimes accompany those storylines. All in all I found myself smitten and sure that A.D. Justice wouldn’t lead me astray with my newest book boyfriend.
“I told you I can’t give your heart back. It already beats inside me.”
Completely Captivated was not only bursting with vibrant characters and genuine emotion, but the overall storyline was intriguing and full of surprises. I loved the way A.D. Justice crafted this story to keep me guessing, while maintaining that sense of security that comes from knowing exactly who you’re rooting for. There were also plenty of memorable secondary characters that rounded out Christa, Aaron and Jared’s world. Allie and Delilah in particular added levity and humor to the story in a way that made me grin. As much as I fell in love with Christa and Aaron in this book, A.D. Justice ensured that the peripheral personalities left their mark as well and I hope we’ll be seeing more of them very soon! Beautifully written and overflowing with feeling, Completely Captivated perfectly exemplified contemporary romance with its swoon-worthy and slightly damaged hero, lovable and quirky heroine and wholly enchanting storyline.
The moonlight shone directly through her bedroom window, casting its silvery light across her naked body. Her eyes glistened with unshed tears that she quickly blinked back. My hands reached out to her and cupped her face to kiss her deeply. I tasted the faint sweetness of alcohol. With my intensity increased, I poured every bit of my love into the kiss, willing her to feel it and take her fill of it. I gently pushed on her shoulders, silently instructing her to sit, and then I helped her move up to the head of the bed.
I started at her feet, kissing, licking, sucking, and nipping my way up and down each leg. I took my time loving her, worshiping her entire body, and pouring my whole heart into her. Then I worked my way back up her leg, stopping momentarily at her core to meet her gaze. My chest clenched at her expression. It was a mixture of the worst pain, the purest bliss, and the deepest love I’d ever seen. That expression would haunt me—later. I’d berate myself for causing her so much pain and confusion, but for as long as she’d let me stay, my sole focus was to make her feel better.
I dipped my head and sucked her clit into my mouth. She gasped and grasped my hair in her fingers. Intermittently, I sucked on it lightly then gently ran my tongue over, under, and around it repeatedly. I moved slowly at first, savoring her natural flavor and every sound of approval she made. The intensity inside her was building to massive levels. She was so close but not quite there yet—but she would be there many times before I was done.
“I fucking love how you taste. And the sounds you make. The way your tiny fists pull my hair just before you come. Your breathy voice when you scream my name.” Her body melted under my touch, my words only adding to her need for more.
I increased the suction on her clit then scraped my teeth across it. Her hips bucked upward involuntarily. Her grip on my hair increased, slightly tugging on it and pulling me closer to her at the same time. Her hungry moans were sexy enough to push me over the edge before she even touched me, but I retrained my focus on her pleasure.
I wrapped my arms under and around her legs and pulled her core to my mouth, and I hungrily lapped her up. After a quick dart of my tongue in and out of her pussy before rolling it inside her, she almost sat straight up from the intensity. When she fell back against the pillows, I continued assaulting all her senses. My hot, wet tongue found her nub once again before my lips closed around it and my finger thrust into her waiting entrance.
As I pushed it in, her moans became louder and her grip became tighter. I deliberately moved my finger in and out of her at a leisurely pace. The need to see her almost matched my need to have her, so I raised my eyes to watch her. Her neck was arched back, her eyes welded shut, and her mouth was agape, with her sexy moans involuntarily escaping at my ministrations. With an added second finger filling and stretching her, I increased the pressure and crooked them to catch the spot that sent her over the edge.
“Aaron,” she screamed, and it was the sweetest music.
I pressed on until she rode the last wave of her orgasm and soaked my hand. When I pulled my fingers out of her, she opened her eyes in time to see me put them in my mouth and lick her essence off them. Her lips parted and her eyes widened. The pulse in her neck jumped in time with her pounding heart. She tried to pull me to her, but I gently nudged her back down, silently shaking my head side to side.
Her responding grumble made me smile against her skin as I continued licking, nipping, and sucking my way up her stomach and ribs until I reached her breasts. The stubble of my unshaven jaw rubbed against her soft skin, leaving light red abrasions like they were my own personal branding iron. My possessive side appreciated the fact that her skin held my mark. She was mine, after all, and I was determined to win her back. When I reached her breasts, I took one into my mouth, sucking and biting on her nipple while my hand kneaded her other breast. My thumb and middle finger closed around the taut peak of her nipple, and I continued my double assault on her. Her fingers gripped my shoulders and back, her nails dug into my skin in response to the powerful sensations.
“Aaron,” she panted.
I raised my head to meet her eyes, yet I was afraid to speak the words that were on the tip of my tongue. Afraid the words would break the spell, and she’d tell me to leave. That she’d realize this wasn’t just a dream she’d later wake up from and instantly regret her middle-of-the-night phone call.
“Aaron, if you don’t take me now, I will leave and find someone else who will!”
Her words struck a chord in the hidden chasms of my mind. I knew her declaration was part bluff and all frustration, but that very thought had tormented me countless times every night. The thought spurred me to speak my mind, my response leaving no room for discussion or argument.
“The. Hell. You. Will. You are mine, Christa. For better or for worse. Till death do us part. And it’ll be over my dead fucking body that any other man touches you–or it’ll be his fucking death.” I meant every word of it.
Her eyes widened in surprise, studying my face and partly losing the glazed look of desire. I sensed my fear was about to come true—she was on the verge of realizing our rendezvous was a huge mistake and making me leave. So I decided to finish what she asked me to start. I aligned the head of my cock at the entrance of her wet core then slowly pushed into her, giving her body time to adjust to my size.
Once I’d pushed in to the hilt, burying myself fully inside her, I curled my hips and thrust slightly harder into her. I straightened my arms and looked directly into her eyes, holding hers captive. The glazed look returned to her eyes, and her hands moved to my chest, gripping, holding, and stroking me as I thrust into her harder and harder.
When she closed her eyes, I immediately issued an order. “Open your eyes and look at me. See me, Christa. You were made for me and only me. You are like a finely tuned violin, custom-made to be played only by my hands. Your body wraps around and fits me perfectly. I know every sound you make, when your breathing changes, and only I can give you what your body craves. I am the only man who can answer its call. You. Belong. To. Me. And I belong to you.” I kept my voice low and let it flow across the air between us. Her inner walls quivered and squeezed me as her body shuddered at my words.
I pulled her legs up, wrapped my arms behind her knees, and increased the angle and depth of my penetration. Christa grasped at the sheets, writhing beneath me in sheer ecstasy. Harder and harder, I thrust into her over and over until her orgasm completely took her over the edge. When she screamed out my name again, I felt her tightness squeezing around me, holding me inside her and milking me for everything I have. I gladly gave it to her, emptying myself deep inside her and groaning with complete satisfaction as I said, “You have all of me.”
