Braxton Cole lives in the Pacific Northwest where she spends most of her time holed up in her office writing stories. When she's not writing, she can be found riding her bike, hiking the fabulous local trails, chasing her kids, or wishing that her thumb was a little more green. She has a bad habit of killing what she tries to grow, but hasn't given up hopes of one day being a successful urban farmer.
Braxton writes erotic romance because romance is the stuff that makes life great, and sex is fun. The two belong together, both in life and in fiction.
Hey there! I’m Braxton Cole and I want to thank you all for checking out my blog tour for All Wrapped Up.
All Wrapped Up is a novella length erotic romance, and is book two in The List Series. The first book is called Birthday Wishes.
The basic premise behind the series is that a young woman, Mari, meets a man, Luca, on an adult themed website. They create a list of all the fun sex acts they want to experience, but haven’t yet had the opportunity.
The two agree to work through their list with an open, no strings-attached policy. It’s a very practical approach to a sexual to-do list. And that’s all good and well until they realize that all that sexual chemistry translates to a pretty awesome emotional connection as well.
For most girls, that would be perfect, but Mari isn’t looking for a commitment. All she wants is someone she can trust to take care of her sexual needs without it taking up too much of her personal time, and without interfering with the other elements of her life. Work and family are definitely off-limits.
At the start of All Wrapped Up, Mari and Luca have progressed to the point of comfortable dating. Luca has met Mari’s business partner, and he regularly joins her for Sunday dinner with her family.
Once again, however, Luca pushes for more while Mari holds back. Just because she knows that she loves him doesn’t mean she’s ready to say it. Nor is she ready to hear him say it. And the thought of living together gives her a serious fit of heart palpitations.
All Wrapped Up is about the two of them navigating their way through the next stage in their relationship, while continuing to check items off of The List.
The inspiration behind the story came from the same place as all my other books. It always starts with the question “Wouldn’t it be fun if...?” Followed rapidly by “What would happen if...?”
From that point it snowballs. For this series, I really just wanted a couple of fun characters that were honest enough with themselves and each other to identify what they like and don’t like in (and out of) the bedroom. So often in relationships, people are too afraid to vocalize what they want. Finding a sexual voice is empowering.
The other side of that, is figuring out how to communicate emotions and desires just as effectively. Mari has no problem asserting herself in sexual situations, but is a train wreck with the rest. It takes some persistence and a whole lot of patience for the two of them to talk their way through her concerns and figure out how they match up against his intentions.
Mari & Luca are a lot of fun to write and I really hope that you enjoy reading them as well!
