Today I am so pleased to welcome Silvia Violet to Joyfully Jay. Silvia has come to share a sexy exclusive excerpt from her latest release, Personal Entanglement. She has also brought along some books to give away. Please join me in giving her a big welcome!


Thorne rested his head on Riley’s chest. Riley stroked his hair, and it was all he could do to keep his eyes open. No way in hell was he going to be the old man who fell asleep on the couch. Fortunately, he knew a good way to stay awake.

Thorne slipped his hand under Riley’s shirt and caressed his abdomen with gentle, circular strokes. Riley sighed and settled deeper into the couch. Thorne circled his navel and then moved higher, skimming just under his nipples. Riley stayed still, but Thorne could feel his muscles tensing.

“Anticipation,” Thorne whispered.

Personal Entangelement teaser “Teasing.”

“Isn’t it the same thing?”

Riley scowled at him. “Watch the damn show. We’re going to wait.”

“Mmmhmm.” Not if Thorne could help it.

Thorne kept stroking him, not doing anything particularly erotic. Riley’s skin felt so good under his fingers, and Riley was obviously distracted. The first time he brushed over one of Riley’s nipples, Riley sucked in his breath and tried to scoot away. Encouraged, Thorne kept it up, lightly pinching and toying with the now-tight buds.

“Stop it, Thorne.”

“I’m just making sure you’ll really appreciate what’s going to happen after the show.”

Riley tried to push his shirt back down. “This is the funniest part; just watch it.”

Thorne raised a brow. “I didn’t think you really liked this show.”

“I said it was ridiculous, but that doesn’t mean I—”

Thorne brushed his palm over Riley’s cock, which was as hard as Thorne’s now. The thin fabric of his sleep pants couldn’t be doing much to mask the sensation of Thorne touching him.

He looked up and saw Riley watching him, a combination of annoyance and lust in his eyes. Thorne loved making him squirm because it so rarely happened. Most of the time Thorne was the one suffering from Riley’s teasing.

“I’m trying to spend time with you that’s not—”

Thorne grasped Riley’s hard shaft through his pants and squeezed.

Riley batted at his hand. “Just watch the damn show.”

Thorne continued to ignore Riley’s feeble protests. He pulled down the waistband of Riley’s sleep pants—and the fuck-me-now purple jock strap he wore underneath—and tucked them under his balls. Then he glanced up at Riley. “You were saying?”

Riley blew out a long breath. “You’re evil.”

“I thought you already knew that.”


“Watch the show, and don’t come.”

“Fuck, I’m never going to be able to watch this show again without getting hard.”

Thorne liked that a lot. “Good.”

Riley huffed.

“I can’t watch any of your ‘old’ movies without wanting you to throw me over the back of the couch and fuck my brains out.”

Riley laughed, the sound a relief to Thorne. He hadn’t laughed much since he’d moved in, and Thorne had started to worry they wouldn’t be able to have fun anymore, that the thick tension in the air would send Riley running.

“Watch,” Thorne admonished, gesturing toward the television as he bent to swipe his tongue along Riley’s length.

Riley groaned and pushed his hips up.

Thorne pushed him back to the couch and held him there with a tight grip while he teased Riley’s cock with licks, nibbles, and just enough suction to drive him mad.

Several moments later, the blare of the trumpet in the end-credits song penetrated Thorne’s sex-fogged brain. “Turn it off,” he ordered.

The sound cut out. Apparently Riley was still capable of using the remote.


Personal EntanglementSeveral months ago Thorne hired Riley as an escort. They fell hard for each other and ultimately made their relationship personal rather than professional. Every moment they spend in bed is pure bliss, but good sex can’t solve all their problems as they struggle to make things work between them. Thorne convinces Riley to move in with him, but their differences in age and income weigh more heavily on Riley once they share a home.

If that weren’t enough, culinary school is turning out to be a disappointment for Riley rather than a dream come true, and he’s considering the daunting prospect of starting his own business. Thorne wants to swoop in and fix everything, but Riley keeps refusing Thorne’s money or advice, feeling like he’s losing control over his own life.

Thorne and Riley will have to rely on their love for each other to help them find the balance between independence and entanglement.
