Book Two, in A Sinful Series, brings you an intense, taboo love story, and an even hotter ALPHA. Meet Luca King— broody, powerful and a man who’s never refused.
There are only two reasons a man falls to his knees: prayer and pussy.
And I sure as hell don’t pray.
But for this woman, I’d fall on my knees to worship every single, gorgeous part of her body.
And claim her as mine,
knowing I shouldn’t want to keep her.
Because we’re all wrong, too complicated, too explosive….too sinful.
I want what I can’t have.
But I’ll take it anyway because Gretchen Andrews has done the one thing my wife never could….she’s made me love her.
Luca’s hand pulls away from my chin, and he takes my glass, putting it on the table.
“How I see it is you need to stop assuming the worst and trust me to care for you, and the only way for us to do that is to make sure you get what you need, over and over, until you take it for granted.”
He’s talking about more than just sex, even though I love the “over and over” part. I didn’t trust him; I prolonged this moment as much as his stubbornness did. But I did it by way of mistrust, assuming he wouldn’t do what we both needed.
“So, you want to teach me a lesson in trust?”
The desire in my voice gives away my readiness.
“I paid a helluva price almost losing you. What price should you pay for not trusting me? Huh?”
The tumbler he’s holding runs up my leg, and I can feel the coolness through my jeans. Luca leans close to my cheek and whispers, “Choose your fate. Do you want to be fucked or loved, Angel?”
I close my eyes, knowing they aren’t mutually exclusive, but for us, they have very specific meanings. He knows I need the connection between us, the aggression and anger we’ve both felt to play about in the sheets.
His breath is warm against my skin as he keeps whispering.
“Maybe we play your favorite game, Angel. I’ll hunt you…here.”
He brings the glass between my legs and runs it up, rolling it over where my clit is throbbing. My breath hitches.
“Do you trust me?” he asks seductively.
He sets his drink down and begins to gather my T-shirt, tugging it up.
I look around, worried about being caught.
“Luca, someone could catch us. The wall is all glass.”
The minute I say it, I know I failed my lesson. Luca doesn’t stop or change expression as he pulls my shirt up and over my head, leaving me exposed in just my bra.
“Take them off, or I will,” he directs in his deep gravel, indicating my jeans.
I’m not a submissive girl. But when he does this, gets sexually dominant, I feel understood. I’m a powerful woman, and I need a man who can handle me, break me, and make me feel devoured. Luca was made for me. He crosses his arms over his chest.
“The longer I wait, the longer you wait to come. Get ’em off,” he growls. Holy hell, I’m wet. Rough Luca is my favorite Luca.
I reach slowly for my button and pull it open, challenging his patience by lowering the zipper only a fraction.
“You know, I’m not wearing underwear,” I lie.
The thought of being fucked out here where someone could catch us makes me nervous, even if I’m supposed to trust him.
“When I pull off these jeans, everyone will see what’s yours…you sure you want to share?” My voice is a purr, and he bites his lip, gripping his bulge.
I know I’ve won. No fucking way is he willing to share me with prying eyes.
Right as I feel victorious, Luca shakes his head and says, “So fucking stubborn,” then grabs me by the waistband of my jeans and jerks me forward.
“Luca!” I yelp and laugh.
He pushes his hand down the front of my jeans, and I gasp, silenced. Grabbing my tiny lace G-string, along with the few hairs I have down below, he tugs me closer, and the sensation makes my pussy slick with need.
My back arches from being pulled forward.
“Little liar,” he whispers knowingly, and I whimper.
Pleasure grips my body as his hold tightens.
“You definitely need a lesson in trust. Maybe I’ll take it out on your ass or maybe in your ass. Here’s the game, baby: I catch you, I pick.”
His hand retreats as he takes a step away from me.
I’m breathless. My entire body is on fire. This man speaks to every filthy fucking piece of me.
“What’s the second choice? What if you don’t catch me?” I ask hungrily.
A slow smile grows on his gorgeous face. Luca takes out his phone from his pocket and presses a button, laughing to himself.
The light that glowed from inside the house begins to fade as heavy black shades roll down, and I hear a click as the door locks. He was never going to let me be seen. But now, I’m on my own.
Trilina is an author, wife, and mama to three rowdy kiddos. When she isn’t making grilled cheese sandwiches, she can be found writing saucy novels that titillate and excite her readers.
I read, ‘Truth’ (book 1) and fell…hard! I, seriously, thought there was NO WAY Trilina could top my love for Dominic King and his relationship with Drew. You see, I loved every little thing about him. Enter ‘Worship’ hitting my kindle and I was thirstily drinking in every single word, nuance and hidden meaning. I admit to all, right here and right now, that I was wrong. Trilina topped Dom with my incredible love for not only Luca, but Gretchen as well.
‘Sexy Luca is hard to ignore, but this Luca, the one asking for the kind of kiss that’s filled with my heart, is the one I crave. So much so that I’m willing to make very poor choices.’
Luca is capital A, alpha, but with a soft, squishy center. He is wild, broody, demanding and untamed with a don’t give a d@mn attitude. He is in an incredibly unfortunate living situation that makes him mad, pissed and bitter. Up until the start of Worship there is one girl who brings him sheer happiness and gives his life meaning. Luca thought it would be just the two of them for the foreseeable future, until he met Gretchen.
Gretchen rocks as a heroine. She is feisty, a female version of an Alpha with a capital A, witty and does not take crap from anyone. She is a bad@ss!! Her friends are her everything and she firmly believes in the word family. In reading Gretchen’s story, we learn along with Gretchen, that the word family can take on many different meanings. For her, her friends are her family.
The collision of Luca and Gretchen is electric, awe-inspiring, sexy and exquisitely beautiful to watch. Fireworks is one way to describe them. Luca realizes that he has met his match in Gretchen and doesn’t want to let her go. What he doesn’t know is that she will be the one to bring him to his knees.
‘There are only two reasons for a man to be on his knees: prayer and pussy. And I sure as hell don’t pray.’
As phenomenal as they are together, Gretchen, has one thing that she lives by…
‘He belongs to me in so many ways, but I won’t play second fiddle either.’
What started as slightly taboo metamorphosed into something exquisite. They develop a true, deep hearted friendship with love and respect. The question is, will friendship be enough for Gretchen to trust him when he asks? Sometimes love and friendship, may not be enough.
As I mentioned before, I, adored Worship. I loved how Trilina portrayed Luca. From beginning to end, we see a transformation within himself with the realization of his love for Gretchen. They have a rather unique situation and it is extremely difficult as the reader to sit back and not root for them. I truly didn’t think I could love someone more than Dom, but Ms. Pucci completely won me over with Luca and Gretchen. Luca speaking Italian throughout the book, just cemented his status of new book boyfriend for me. I was so excited about this series after Truth, but now with the addition of Worship in the love column, I can’t wait for the next book.
Worship will have you all googly-eyed as you witness love from beginning to end. Worship is impeccably written with a strong, continuously moving storyline and a plot that could be taken straight from The Chicago Tribune or The Chicago Sun-Times. One thing I didn’t mention yet is Luca’s relationship with ‘his boys’. As powerful as these Italian boys are they will remind you of any other group of boys. They laugh, play cards, shoot the sh@t, smack talk in Italian and lust after the pretty girls (the men that are available). Truly a book not to be missed!! Kudos Trilina!!
‘This woman is part supermodel and full bada@@ wrapped around a wicked sense of humor and the truth. My truth.’
‘Love isn’t a lie–people are liars. Find someone to tell you the truth and you’ll find your soul mate.’
