When good girls go bad, very, very bad…

The minute Carrie meets tattooed, bad-boy bartender Dallon, her decision is made. He's the one, her ticket to freedom and a new, independent life. She's tired of dictates and zero dates and following the path laid out before her by her well-meaning-but-completely-out-of touch-with-her-reality religious parents.

Dallon sees the buttoned-up, full-of-curves woman outside the grocery store and feels the flames of hell licking at his heels. When she asks him for directions to the large, nearby university where she's starting work, his gut-twisting lust for her doesn't diminish, but those flames start to singe his tough-as-nails hide.

With Dallon's promise of not sleeping with anyone associated with the university his father is the dean of about to go up in smoke, Carrie takes the first exit off the Heavenly Highway straight onto Sin Street. She wants Dallon to teach her all the things a good girl should never know, and she won't take Hell no for an answer.

Reader Advisory: What Dallon does with a beer bottle may be illegal in forty-eight out of fifty states…and at least two territories.

CARNAL ECSTASY is a heavenly ride all the way to hell. The chaste church girl meets the town bad boy and all kinds of fun ensue. What this bartender can do with a beer bottle on a pool table will leave you blushing and closing the blinds. Not much is off limits when a good girl decides to go bad.

Carrie's church goin' parents have planned out her life right down to her new job at a Christian college. She is no young thing, and it is time to get out from under their thumb, make her own choices and see what life has to offer. Like the hunky man she ran into at the grocery store.

Dallon's father is the dean of the local college. When he bumps into Carrie while shopping, the sparks fly, and then fizzle out when he learns where she will be working. The girls associated with the university are off limits to this family of outcast. He doesn't have many hard limits, but that's one he's not breaking.

When Carrie quits her new job and ends up at Dallon's bar, ready to stretch her wings and fly, Dallon can't resist. Try as he might to scare her away, they only fall harder faster.

CARNAL ESCSTASY is a quick read. One that is sure to curl your toes and raise your eyebrows. Dallon is determined to push her over the edge and right back into the safe arms of the church, making the heat factor of the story scorching. Fortunately Carrie is not interested in saying "No". She has discovered passion and desire and she's ready to make up for years of missing out. Ms Matthews knows how to write it hot and keep the characters interesting. Watching the bad boy fall for the good girl, everything he turned his back on, was priceless.

There's a lot of meat and heat to this quick tale. If you are short on time, but want more than a raunchy romp, CARNAL ECSTASY is one to check out. Enjoy!
