Pieces of Perfect
by Elizabeth Hayley
Publication: July 8th, 2013
Adult Contemporary Romance | Erotic Fiction

As a sexy ex-hockey player, Max was the bad boy with something to prove. As a handsome single father, Adam was the man most women wait a lifetime for. Each man would take me on a journey of self-discovery that was marred with lies, jealousy, deceit, and a whole lot of fun. They each offered a glimpse of happily ever after, a piece of perfect. But in my constant quest to have it all, I would risk losing everything. Only one thing was certain. I’d never be the same after this.

A sneak peek into Pieces of Perfect

“God, Adam . . . this is . . . it’s beautiful.” I turned around to see him propping the door open with his strong shoulder as he leaned, confident and relaxed. “I don’t know what to say.”
The corners of his mouth rose slightly to reveal a subtle smile. “Then don’t say anything.” He let the door close behind him as he stepped to me, his bright eyes fixed as his soft thumb stroked my cheek. “I told you how it shouldn’t be. Now let me show you how it should.”
Dear God, just when I thought I couldn’t get any wetter.
Of all the sexually obscene comments that I had heard recently, I never would have guessed that hearing something so innocent, something so true, could have such an immediate effect on me. My legs weakened. But this time it was not from a sexual need. It was as if my chest suddenly filled with the presence of something I wasn’t sure had ever existed in me before now.
Adam expressed true feeling without the vulgarity that I had become so used to. Emotionally, he had a hold on me that I couldn’t escape, even if I’d wanted to. And I definitely didn’t want to. Something told me that his physical grasp on me would be no less powerful. I was torn between whether to grab the back of his neck with both my hands and pull him in to kiss me or to just keep staring into his eyes until I was completely lost in him.
Lightly, he slid a hand up my back that sent chills undulating down my spine, and pulled me slowly, effortlessly toward him. My head leaned back as he supported it with his other hand and kissed me softly, letting his tongue linger in my mouth before he’d pull out teasingly to nibble on my bottom lip. My back arched as he towered over me, consuming me fully.
He lay me back onto the bed and leaned over me, his weight supported by his forearms as he licked down the front of my neck and chest. I closed my eyes to let myself take in every touch. I concentrated on feeling his erection pressing into me as he slowly moved his hips back and forth on top of me, causing a muffled moan to escape my mouth into his neck.
But my need for this man went beyond a physical one. I wanted to stay like this, in this moment of anticipation. This moment of the unknown and the new. A moment I would never be able to get back after it passed.
Adam stood up in front of me and parted my legs just enough so he could position himself between them. I studied him closely as he loosened his tie, pulled it over his head and let it drop to the floor a few feet away. He slipped his jacket down his arms slowly and tossed it to the chair in the corner without looking behind him. Then, one by one, he began to undo each button on his shirt.
Holy shit! He's going to strip for me.
Revealing more and more of his tanned, chiseled chest, he finally removed his shirt completely and tossed it on the bed. As it landed, the scent of him wafted up, and I inhaled it deeply. He grabbed ahold of his belt as he bit his bottom lip, seemingly unaware of how captivating he was to watch.

Elizabeth Hayley

Elizabeth Hayley is actually “Elizabeth” and “Hayley,” two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. The product is Pieces of Perfect, their debut novel. They learned a ton about one another through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly (much to their husbands' chagrin). They are currently getting ready to release Sex Snob, a novel centered around Lily’s roommate Amanda, and have also begun writing the sequel to Pieces of Perfect.

“Elizabeth” lives with her husband, one and a half year old daughter and nutjob of a dog. “Hayley” lives with her husband and her own crazy dog. They are about to adopt a newborn son in November. Elizabeth Hayley's writing motto is best captured by the words of Patrick Dennis: “I always start with a clean piece of paper and a dirty mind.”
