Dirty Shame by Selah March
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Failed actress Josephine "Joey" Fiorello needs a job. Rising star Dare Daniels needs a new personal assistant.
A hard-partying male slut with a taste for public sex, Dare's bad behavior is threatening everything he's worked for. His shrink says he needs a trip home to Kansas to confront his personal demons. But Dare's tiny hometown isn't exactly a welcoming place--not with tabloid reporters and a homicidal stalker on the loose. And now Joey is falling for her boss. Can she protect Dare and her own heart at the same time?
Joey opened the door, pulled him into the tiny cubicle, and reached around him to shove the lock into place. “Did anyone notice?”
“Of course not. Why would anyone pay attention to the guy with the beer-stained tent in his pants following the girl into the restroom?”
She glanced down and smiled. “We’ll have to do something about that. The tent part, I mean.”
“Whoa.” He took her wrist in his hand as she reached for his belt. “You said this would be a mistake.”
“I also said we needed to clear the air and remove distractions.” She twisted her arm from his grasp and reached again for his buckle. He grabbed for her wrist a second time, mostly because things were moving way too fast. But also because she was taking charge. Again. And maybe it was his turn.
“Slow down and let’s talk about this a second,” he said and instantly wanted to rip his own tongue out. Sex on a crowded plane had always been a serious, top-of-the-list fantasy for him, and here he was working overtime to prevent it. Why, exactly? Because he didn’t want her to think she was obligated? Because he wanted to respect her? Because he wanted her to respect him?
The plane hit a pocket of turbulence, throwing them off balance. They fell hard against the door, make a loud, rattling thump. Dare froze with Joey’s face mashed into the middle of his chest, waiting for the inevitable.
“Is everything all right in there?” The flight attendant sounded annoyed.
He smothered his laughter in Joey’s hair as she answered for both of them. “Yes! We’re fine!”
She righted herself and glared at him. “Are you going to cooperate?”
“What’s in it for me?”
The glare evaporated and she smiled again, the tip of her tongue peeping between her teeth. “A little release of tension.” She made the words sound dirty, her lips shaping them so he could almost see each individual letter.
A trace of Brooklyn had crept into her voice. She’d said her accent popped up in moments of high stress. Interesting. Then she stretched up and stuck her tongue in his mouth. She tasted tangy, like cherry SweeTarts™, and he lost his train of thought.
“You smell like a brewery.” She whispered it against his lips as her hand found their way to his belt once more.
“I...uh...” Whatever he’d been about to say deteriorated into a grunt when she worked open his fly and slid her fingers home. Then she leaned her forehead against the center of his chest as she slipped his jeans and briefs over his hips and pulled his cock out into the cool, dry air. The pilot’s voice sounded overhead. “Ladies and gentlemen, we ask that you return to your seats and fasten your seatbelts, as we’ll be passing through some rough air on our way to touch down in Denver.”
Well, of course. This was God’s way of giving him another chance to do the right thing. Couldn’t get much clearer without a divine baseball bat to the head. “Joey? We have to go back to our seats.”
“Shut up. This is my show now.” She dropped to her knees, pressing him back against the door. “Hold still and try to be quiet. I’ll make this quick.”
She grasped the base of his cock and ran her finger up the length of him, stopping just short of the crown. He hissed between his teeth in reaction, feeling his balls pull up tight and firm. She wasn’t kidding about the “quick” part. Then her thumb slurred over the tip, slipping in the shiny moisture collecting in the slit, and he all but whimpered at the too-much-not-enough sensation. Heat pooled at the base of his spine like a storm threatening to erupt out of invisible clouds.
The plane hit another bump in the sky. Her fingers tightened, holding on, and when she stuck her tongue out to lick all around the rim of the crown, he let his head fall back against the door with a thud and closed his eyes. Behind his eyelids, the pervy part of his soul showed home movies of what Joey would look like with his dick between her lips. Not that he expected her to actually—oh, Jesus.
She’d just leaned in and enveloped him in the warm, wet heaven of her mouth when the pilot’s voice intruded again. “Ladies and gentlemen, we’re beginning our final descent into Denver. Please make sure your luggage is securely stowed, your seatbelts are fastened, and your tray-tables are in the upright and locked position. Flight attendants, prepare the cabin for arrival.”
The rap on the door came three seconds later. “Sir? Miss? You’ll need to return to your seats immediately.”
At the sound of the flight attendant’s voice, the private porn showing in his head faded. Speaking of upright and locked, he wasn’t looking forward to stuffing this particular boner back into his jeans, but those were the breaks. And yet—maybe not. Because Joey just sucked harder, using her hand to caress the part of his shaft she couldn’t fit into her mouth, her teeth scraping lightly against the underside in a way that made his toes curl inside his ridiculously expensive sneakers. He groaned loud and long over the whir of the overhead fan. Because the folks in the first three rows needed that extra clue to solve The Mystery of the Hummer in the First Class John.
"85...Oh, Dare and Joey. They are both wounded characters in their own way and I like how they get to hash out their demons to each other before they find their happy ending because it makes their relationship more convincingly real. Dare is a very nice mix of unrepentant naughtiness and angst while Joey is just as nicely balanced as a sensible person who sometimes isn't as wise as she'd like to be. These two make a great couple - they are sweet together when they are arguing or talking and they are hot when they are bumping uglies."

"A-!...Dirty Shame rocked. I know the conventions say not to write about people in famous professions like rock stars, actors, etc, but this story worked for me. Among other gifts, Ms. March has knack for smart banter in dialogue [and] knows how to write the sex scenes, ya’ll. The up-n-down is smokin’ hot and dirty...This is a fine read, and I’ll be buying up Selah March’s backlist because I really dig her writing style and her sense of humor..."
