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.
The Thrust series is one of my favorite reads this year. Grind was a highly enthralling read. It was gritty, suspenseful and sexy as hell. It is written in such a way that you really get into the character’s head. You can’t help but feel such deep emotion for these people. Yes, they have had a horrible past but they are trying their best to move forward with their lives.
Grind isn’t as light hearted as the other novels are, not that the other books in the series can really be considered light hearted anyway. The contents of this book are dark but also hopeful. The struggle of the characters feels real, as if it were happening to a dear friend of yours.
Sybil Bartel has become one of my favorite authors. She writes in such a captivating way. I love all the detail she includes, it really gives the reader a good picture of the story. There are several of her other books that I have on my “to read” list. I can’t wait to continue the Thrust series!
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…
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.
