I was thoroughly enjoying watching the raven-headed lady dance. She had the voluptuous
body of a goddess—curvy hips and the most exquisite face. Once our eyes locked, there’d been a
magnetic force between us. This woman was the pure definition of beautiful. Enchanted by her
spell, I couldn’t look away. She rocked her hips in a sensual hypnotic groove. My mouth
parted—she was teasing me. I couldn’t help but smile. She grinned, too, and appeared to be
undressing me also. I couldn’t be luckier that she seemed into me. Normally, I wasn’t a dancer,
but I was about to say screw it and join her on the floor. Her body was calling to me.
Suddenly, a furious boom vibrated through the room. The commotion interrupted our lustful
“The Popo are here. Everyone scatter!” a dude hollered.
A boatload of enforcement bum-rushed inside, after kicking in the door. The first wave of
them attacked the band. Both male singers got hit over the head with clubs. The female singer
attempted to help her bandmates, getting tasered in the process. The dudes were out cold, while
she trembled on the ground. Other people were trying to resist and getting beaten to a pulp.
“Come the back way!” Tobias yelled at the lady he’d been dancing with.
A good idea, before we went down, too. We had a small window of opportunity, being toward
the back of the room. Tobias’ girl tried to grab her friend’s hand, but she was engulfed by the
fleeing crowd. People were practically climbing over each other to get out. A ton weren’t making
it, getting struck with clubs or tasered with stun guns. Her friend tripped and fell down. I
couldn’t let her take the fall. I rushed over to help.
“This way!” I shouted over the ruckus. Glancing up frantically, she took my extended hand. A
spark of energy pulsated between us on contact. Wasting no time, I pulled her quickly through
the stampede. Unfortunately, we didn’t get far. Smoke polluted the air in huge billows when the
officials let off grenades. The crowd started coughing.
“Cover your mouth!” I yelled. The smoke was making it difficult to see, and I was losing my
grip on her hand. Just a little farther. We were so close to the rear door. A chick behind us got
zapped. She fell, pulling my lady. Unable to maintain her balance, she went down as well.
Unfortunately, that delay sealed her fate.
One of the bastards tasered her, too. She whimpered, shaking violently. Rage filled me to my
core, seeing her in pain. I rushed toward her but was bombarded by two officers. One popped me
in the head. With my adrenaline rush, it wasn’t too painful. I’m sure I’d have a knot later.
Moaning, my lady attempted to scramble to her feet, and then that prick lit her up again. This
time she screamed, and then her body grew very still. I wanted to murder him! Red infiltrated my
vision. I didn’t struggle with the lawmen that held me long—the Taser asshole came over to me,
gloating. He used the stun gun, sending electric shocks of pain through me.
I’m not gonna lie, it hurt like hell. My body shook uncontrollably, and I blacked out for a
Temptation Trials Rebellion (The Tempted Series #2)
By B Truly
Genre: Dystopian Romance
Age category: New Adult
Release Date: November 30, 2018
Can love defeat the greatest temptation ... lust?
In a post-apocalyptic nation where the land of the free is now run under a dictatorship, there is one factor that holds the key to keeping world orderâ€”love. The new Regime controls the emotions of the heart. Itâ€™s their most vital law. At the age of twenty-one, every citizen is forced into an arranged marriage. The only way to escape the arrangement is to enter the Temptation Trialsâ€”a government-sponsored reality TV show where the loyalties of the contestants are tested by Tempters and Temptresses who are impossible to resist.
Catalina enters the Trials as a Temptress in hopes that she can win the funds to save her brother. Saharaâ€™s been ridiculed in the eyes of the public. By being a Temptress, sheâ€™ll be able to have a fresh start. The Regime promises that if she fulfills her role on the show they will wipe her slate clean.
The problem is that the Trials are rigged for failure. In all the prior seasons, loveâ€™s rival, lust, has proven to be more powerful. No contestant has ever won the Temptation Trials and be allowed to stay with their chosen partner. Lutheran Eminence, the worldâ€™s dictator, has shown that heâ€™s the ultimate matchmaker.
As the Temptation Ball approaches, conflict is at an all-time high. Most couples are too hurt by betrayal to reconcile. With the odds stacked against them, Kincade and Tobias try to mend their relationships, hoping that the greater good will prevail.
Attempting to uncover the true meaning of love may cost the contestants more than they bargained forâ€”it may cost their souls.
