RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW: eXtortion (Nefarious #1) by J. Derek Teevan



eXtortion
by J. Derek Teevan
Genre: Erotica Novella
Goodreads Link: http://bit.ly/2vVodQ6


A job is just a job, right? Just because a man gets paid to do bad things, doesn't necessarily make him a bad person. At least that what he’s been telling himself these past few years. He’s just a man who enjoys the perks of the job: money, travel, women, and lots of cash. It doesn’t come without cost, and the years of deception have taken its toll. He’s done. Almost.

One final job. One final conquest. One last heartbreak until he’s free of The Company and their hold over him.

Little does he know, he’s about to face the toughest job of his life. 

Follow Ethan on his titillating path of self-actualization and turmoil in J. Derek Teevan's debut novel eXtortion.

My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review. 

I absolutely love the concept of this book! I don't want to go into the plot too much because I don't want to give anything away, but I will say that it is something I had not read before. And once I realized what was happening, I couldn't put the it down. I needed to know how everything was going to play out!

This is a great debut. It starts of steamy and just gets steamier as the book goes on. The characters were very likable and I wanted to get to know them better. I also wanted them to get their happily ever. And while there were plenty of sexy times, they connected on a deeper level, which of course is where the conflict comes in. 

I look forward to see what comes next in this series. There was a secondary character that I would like to know better. So, fingers crossed!


EXCERPT

A sick excitement courses through me when Luke picks up his phone and dials the number on the contract to confirm that I’ll take the assignment. It’s almost like the first day of school nerves all over again, only this time around you’re getting paid to seduce your teacher.

If she takes the bait and sleeps with me, she’s the one who failed the test. I’m just the asshole who’s administering it. Unfortunately for her, I’ve never failed. In my time at The Company, I have a success rate of 100%. Yeah, I’m the dick who has successfully ensured that twelve women were divorced and didn’t receive a penny of their husband’s money. It took time, cultivating a relationship, dangling the carrot, or playing a cat-and-mouse game. Looks like Dr. Samantha Dawson is going to be lucky number thirteen.

Or unlucky, in her case.

“Okay, you’re good to go. They’ll send you the complete file by courier tomorrow, and your training day starts on Monday, Officer Hoyt. You got three days, so suit-up. Or I guess in your case, get those scrubs ready.”

Luke can never miss a chance to bring up a movie reference with that other Ethan guy. I’ve grown so used to them I’m not even sure if they register in my brain anymore. My brain stays with the subject at hand. “Wow, that was fast. We usually have more time to study the target before the meeting. What’s the deal?”

He simply shrugs and gives me an impassive stare. “Time is money, buddy, and this guy, the client, has to be pulling some serious strings for you. Your case and internship at the hospital both start Monday. Damn, talk about good timing. It’s like he was waiting for someone from The Company to graduate medical school to make this happen. Must be one miserable son-of-a-bitch.”

I run a hand over my face. Damn, I almost wonder what the good doctor has done to make her husband want to toss her to the curb. But it’s best left to remain uninvolved. It doesn’t matter what she’s done or not done. It only matters that I do my job.








Derek Teevan is a thirty-year- old kid who just has to make adult decisions sometimes. He married his best friend at age nineteen and they enjoy their quiet but somehow always exciting lives in the burbs of Dayton, Ohio. Derek owes his success to his wife who talked him out of another service and into the Ohio Air National Guard. Through ups and downs, mission changes, and career field changes the Guard has been the springboard to his successful civilian career.

Having just entered his thirties, Derek decided to challenge himself by taking up and falling in love with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Even as he sits here with his newly torn ACL, feeling weird because he’s writing in third person, he wishes he was at his Wednesday BJJ class.

When not injured or at class he enjoys long bike rides with his wife on the paved trails through Dayton and the surrounding cities. And when they’re feeling lazy, they both enjoy taking long drives in their 1965 Mustang Convertible. They also enjoy traveling, a lot of times it’s across the country or globe to go an author signing. He looks forward to being able to sign a few of his own books at these events instead of hiding behind Tessa’s book rack and making change.
