Ardent Prose PR Hosted Release Day Blitz for BLACKSMITH (A Real Man #10) by Jenika Snow!












Steel isn’t the only thing that’s hard.

Maddie

Deacon was older than me, but I wanted him regardless. He had this raw edge to him, this primal aura surrounding him that made me feel wholly feminine. He was the epitome of a man…a real man. Even his profession was masculine: a blacksmith. I had no doubt he knew how to work his hands over a woman, how to use them to make her feel the soft and hard sides of him.

What I wanted was for him to be my first…my only.

 

Deacon

She thought I didn’t see her watching me, that I didn’t know she wanted me.

I knew, and I wanted her with a fierceness that rivaled anything else.

What Maddie didn’t know was I’d already claimed her. There was no other woman for me but her. I was a possessive bastard, territorial when it came to her. The time had finally come to make her mine. I’d show her how primal I really was, how rough I liked it, how much I wanted to make her scream my name. I’d show her how a man took care of his woman in all the ways that counted.

She’d be mine. Only mine.



Warning: You like your heroes with a touch of caveman? Look no further because Deacon has it going on. He’s all man, and then some. Hold on tight because this story packs a punch, being unbelievable in the best of ways and having instal-everything.




Maddie

I had a death grip on my bag, my palms hurting from how strongly I was holding on to the damn strap. But God, I didn’t care. The sight before me had everything else dimming in comparison.

Deacon McKnight.

The only reason I knew his name was because I was nosy as hell, asking about him, my fascination like an obsession. We’d never spoken, and to my knowledge he’d never even noticed me.

But I sure as hell have noticed him.

If ever there was a person who could be the poster boy for what a real man looked like, Deacon would be front and center.

The bay doors to his shop were open, and although it wasn’t hot out, I could see sweat covering his hard, muscular form. I swallowed. If anyone were to see me gawking at Deacon, they’d think I had some issues. I didn’t give one shit. Walking by his shop every day on my way to the community college I attended was the highlight of my damn day. The only downside was when I finally pulled myself away from the perfect male specimen that he was, I was breathless, wet, needy, and wishing I had someone to relieve the pent-up arousal that burned in me.


I want Deacon to be that someone. I want him to show me with those big, strong hands, the ones stained from his work, exactly how he likes it.

And I bet he liked it rough, bet he could really dominate and control a situation, have a woman begging for more.

I might be a virgin, might not be experienced in anything more than a hand job and some oral, but God, I wanted to learn a hell of a lot from Deacon. I wanted him to show me how a real man handled a woman.

And no doubt he could.










Final Score - 4.5 Stars!

Every chance Maddie gets, she walks and stops by to gawk at Deacon on her way to university. He is the town blacksmith. He is big, muscular and calls to her in a way no other man ever has.  She knows that just by looking at him, she one day with gift him with her virginity.  However, Maddie now has to find a way to do more than just stare at him. 

Deacon knows Maddie is way too young for him but that doesn’t matter to him. He looks forward to her walking by his shop stopping and staring at him.  He knows that she stares because he is in fact staring back at her.  He's determined to make her his - at any/all costs. Deciding to make first the move, he impulsively asks her out to dinner. 

This is just the beginning of their journey. I adore the real men the author uses to tell her stories. These are men that I can't help but to see as nothing other than the leading alpha men that they are. They are sexy, old fashioned, and totally desirable - makes me wish I could find one in RL!  

Any woman would kill to be claimed by one of these men. I'd happily volunteer as tribute!!!
