I’m silent. I’m trained. I’m lethal.
My hand skimming down your thigh, my gaze a weapon—I know more ways to kill you than please you.
But you’re not paying for my aim. You’re paying for my control. Bringing you a breath away from ecstasy, watching you beg as I hold back your release, I’ll show you exactly what you’ve been missing. Your hunger is my currency and five thousand is my price. I only have one rule—no repeats, because I’m not for keeps. I’m for sale.
One slow grind and I’ll give you exactly what you paid for.


As I have read this series, from book one, I've been curious about Dane - something about him just called to me in a way the others didn't so to say I was excitedly awaiting Dane's book would be putting it mildly.  I have to say Dane did not disappoint and I'm so glad I staked my claim early on - that's right - he's mine! 

Grind was gritty and deep, full of suspense, action, and of course an unexpected love story, as my man Dane never considered.  Dane is quite the man - he's loyal, he's protective, he's independent and he's got serious morals - not quite what you'd expect from a man who willingly kills for money.  He's not in the escort business for reasons you'd expect. 

Meanwhile our lovely heroine, Irina, is also not at all what I expected. Meeting her in book 1, and seeing that side of her, and then discovering her real story in Grind, I was so intrigued.  Irina has been through a lot, and sadly she really didn't have anyone she could count on for much. Irina needs help and when she finds herself in Dane's house, where he's stunned by his need to protect her - things change.  Irina isn't sure what's worse - the situation she wants to leave or the unknown situation she's in with Dane. 

As Irina and Dane grow closer and he tries to solve her problem- they find more than a mutual attraction, something stronger than the chemistry that perfumes the air around them.  But after all Irina's been through and the sort of man Dane is, will they be able to work it out and find a way to really be together?  Can Dane protect what he's know considering his? Can Irina let go of her trust issues and find herself counting on Dane to love her regardless of her past?  

Grab your copy of Grind and discover why Dane's my man - just don't get any ideas you can keep him. *wink* 

Author Bio:
Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.
Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…
But Seriously?
Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.
She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.
