Promotional Event: Fall Into Forever by Beth Hyland {Excerpt + Giveaway}

TITLE: Fall Into Forever
AUTHOR: Beth Hyland
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
RELEASE DATE: March 10, 2014
HOSTED BY: Wordsmith Publicity

Some girls may find guys like Jon exciting and charming. Some are even naive enough to want to date them. But guys like him can harbor dark, dangerous secrets. Secrets you don’t want to know or be involved in. How do you think they got this way in the first place? It’s best to follow your head and stay as far away from them as possible. 

 Trust me when I say this: Guys like Jon Priestly are nothing but trouble.

Ivy McAllister had it all. Perfect boyfriend. Perfect life. Perfect future. Or so they tell her. Because one night, on a dark country road, a fiery crash changed everything…and Ivy can’t remember what happened.

Now, two years later, at a new college far from home, she tries to regain control of her life, but her plans don’t include a tattooed, motorcycle-riding, indie music-obsessed guy with his own sorority girl fan club.

Jon Priestly is the hottest guy at Pacific State University. Just ask his groupies. But with a dark past he must keep hidden, he shuts himself off emotionally and trusts no one. That is…until he meets a broken girl with haunting green eyes and secrets of her own.

Ivy shouldn’t be attracted to Jon. They’re wrong for each other in every possible way. Yet as they spend time together, something about him—everything about him—feels so right.

But when threats from her past make her question what little she does remember, Ivy must decide whether to run again or trust the one person she can’t live without.



A short time later, with Cassidy busy doing laundry and cleaning the disgusting hallway bathroom, Jon and I are in his room. I grab my sports bra and head to his private bathroom. I’m not used to changing in front of him yet.

“Thanks for going to bat for Cassidy,” I tell him.
“I’m glad Tate finally agreed to let her use his bedroom. I was getting ready to give up my half of this bed to her.”
I hesitate in the doorway and turn around. “Good thing you didn’t have to do that, because I’m kind of thinking I might want to hook up with you again tonight. Just sayin’.”

He laughs. “Oh really? Is that all this is?” Suddenly he’s in front of me. He backs me into the bathroom and lifts me up onto the counter. I let out a little giggle. I’m thankful this room doesn’t look like the one down the hall.

“If this is just a hook-up, I might be thinking it’s the only chance I’ll have to be with you, so I’d better take advantage of the situation.” He pulls the shirt over my head.

“And you might have to be a little more aggressive, since we may not have much time. We could be interrupted any minute.”
“Definitely.” His mouth crashes over mine, consuming me. He manages to slide one of my legs out of my jeans without pulling away from me, leaving my thong in place. I hear the zip of his fly and the sound of him rummaging in a nearby drawer.
His lips leave mine just long enough for him to roll on the condom. His erection, sheathed in flesh-colored latex, juts out at me, thick and proud. A thrill runs through me knowing where it will be in a moment. He scoots me to the edge of the counter and moves the thong aside. I cling to his neck as he lifts me slightly. I feel the tip of him right there.

His crystal blue eyes lock onto mine. “Doing okay, babe?”
I nod, too breathless to form any words. I love that he asks me that every single time.

In one quick thrust, he fills me completely.
Pleasure shoots through my core so intensely that every other part of my body goes weak and numb. I cling to his shoulders for stability, loving the feel of his powerful muscles flexing under my fingers.

With one hand behind me on the counter and the other holding my hips still, he thrusts into me, fast and feverish. His dark, glistening hair hangs over his face, just like when I first laid eyes on him. Wild, like an animal, determined and driven to attain a primitive goal. But this time, that goal is me.
Arching into him, I let my head fall back and instantly his hot mouth is on my nipple.

The pressure in my lower belly is unbearable, and I dig my nails into his shoulders. Just when I think I might break, my inner muscles tighten around him and incredible waves of pleasure crash over me.

“Holy shit, Ivy,” he says, thrusting even harder and increasing the intensity of my release. “I’m coming.” Groaning, he grabs a handful of my hair and buries his face in my neck as he climaxes.

As he holds me, both our bodies trembling, I wonder how it’s possible to feel this in tune with another human being. Joined like this, we are one flesh, one mind, one thought.
He nuzzles my ear. “God, that was intense, Ivy.”

“Sorry if I pulled your hair.”
“If you did, I must’ve liked it. Sorry if I scratched your back.”

He lifts his head but doesn’t pull out. “Don’t be. I like your marks on me.”

“I’d say that was a pretty damn good hookup,” I tease, rubbing my bare foot over his bare ass. “Who knew two strangers could be so compatible?”

He gets that devilish glint in his eye that I’m really growing to love. “I wouldn’t mind doing this again sometime. What’s your name? Can I get your number?”

It seems funny to be having this conversation when he’s still inside me. I scratch my head and pretend to be thinking aloud. “Hmmm. Should I give him a real name or a fake name?”
“Just as long as the number is real, I don’t care what your name is.”

I smack him on the butt with my foot. He laughs and pulls out of me. I watch while he disposes of the condom, his penis still semi-erect and glistening.
He catches me looking at him. “What?”
“Nothing,” I say, jumping off the counter. “You’re just really beautiful. That’s all.”

He hikes up his jeans, covering that awesome tight ass of his, then exits the bathroom, grinning.

Five Things Ivy Would Tell You About Jon

1. I love that he used to watch Meerkat Manor and knows who Flower is.

2. He’s got calluses on his fingers from playing the guitar. I love the rough feel on my skin. 

3. I had to bribe him with a blowjob to get him to watch the Butterfly Lovers ballet on YouTube with me. 

4. For the photography assignment, he took a picture of me when I wasn’t looking and used that to represent the word Virginal. He got an A, even though it wasn’t an accurate portrayal of the word.

5. When we met again outside our photography class and I thought he was planning a party with his buddies, they were actually talking about him coming to the frat to do CPR
