Domino Effect (Effect #2) by Kristin Mayer: Blog Tour Excerpt & Giveaway


One small movement can impact the rest of your life, like a set of dominoes lined up one after another. It’s not until you step back and see the big picture that you realize the damage you’ve done…

Brandt Mattox had it all—love, success, and friends. One impulsive wrong decision led him down a path that ended in a prison of regrets. He now only dreams of the happiness he once had before the consequences of his actions cost him everything.

He lost his love—not just any love, but his soul mate.

Nikola Kingston has worked hard to keep the past in the past while she focuses on her career and spending time with her grandmother. On a random night, she runs into the one man who will forever hold her heart captive. Her heart knows she still loves Brandt, but her mind cannot forget the dreadful night that cost her the love of her life.

Will the domino effect of Brandt’s and Nikola’s decisions be too much to overcome? Or will the love they never thought they would get back have an everlasting effect?

Adam and Ainsley disappeared into the crowd. Brandt turned to me and came into my space, pushing me against the bar. I put my elbows on the bar top, which lifted my breasts. The moment we’d walked into the club, memory after memory had assaulted me like a freight train. When we’d pulled into the parking lot, the fear of not being what we had been felt all-consuming. But having a few minutes to talk to Ainsley had helped as I eased back into the club and felt Brandt’s hand on my back. I knew Brandt thought it was good that I was different now, but this step was still intimidating for me.

The place was alive with sex. Members had to be clothed in the main area, but touching and groping and practically anything else was okay.

Brandt looked into my eyes as I watched him. We were both figuring out the next step. I tipped my head back in invitation, and Brandt accepted as his warm lips touched the base of my neck and worked their way up. Couples around us were engaged in their own fun. No one cared what we were doing.

He murmured against my skin, “Nikola…”

Goose bumps prickled my flesh as his hand wandered up and cupped my breast. His leg came between my legs and Brandt’s mouth found mine. The kiss intensified, and I wrapped my hands around Brandt’s neck, knotting my fingers into his hair. He kissed my ear and brought the lobe into his mouth.

His breath tickled my ear. “Do you want to go to our room?”

I nodded and Brandt picked me up, cradling me in his arms so we could continue tasting each other as we walked. The music wrapped around us, building the desire. I lost track of where we were, until I heard a door open and close. I looked around the room.

“Brandt, this is our room…” I never thought he’d have kept this room. It was our special place at the club. I had assumed our room was gone. My head turned back to Brandt, who watched me closely. “You kept our room?”
