Wednesday by Kendall Ryan ~ Promo Campaign

hump day avail now (1)

 

ebook WedNo strings attached.

It’s not what I really want, but it’s all he has to offer. He’s filled with turmoil and heartache and regrets, but for two hours every Wednesday all he feels is me. How much I desire him, how desperate he makes me, how much I’d like things to be different between us. Real.

He used to be my best friend back before he got married. And now? Now, he’s a young widower. It’d be wrong on so many levels to expect something more from him. So I give him what he needs. Dark delicious fucking. But I know I can’t keep this up. I’ve already given him my body, my soul. I want him to have my heart. It might drive him away forever, but that’s a risk I’m forced to take.

Wednesday is an angsty romp told from dual points of view. If you’re in the mood for something quick and dirty, you’ve found it. Proceed at your own risk.

About Why I Wrote this Book:

The concept for what would eventually become WEDNESDAY was one of those random ideas that popped into my head in February 2016. It was a Saturday morning—you know the kind where you’re still lounging in your pajamas, drinking coffee, and picking at breakfast several hours after waking? Yes, one of those. My kids were playing on the living room floor, my husband flipping through a magazine across from me. It was winter in Minnesota, which meant it was absolutely freezing out and we had no plans to go anywhere.

I grabbed my laptop and wrote out the blurb for a book I knew I had no time to write. I e-mailed it to my publicist and said, “What do you think about this idea?” Her response was enthusiastic, something along the lines of, “You need to write this book! Right now!” So I opened a blank document, and soon I had the beginning of a first chapter.

Because this project didn’t fit into my writing schedule (like, at all), I decided that I would continue writing the books I was supposed to in order to keep on track with my releases, but that I would write one thousand words a night on this book too, and just see where it took me. It was a hard couple of months, alternating between two projects—one I would write during the day in present tense, and this book in the evening after dinner, dishes, and bath time, in past tense. This book was basically written with the help of wine, my couch, and a good playlist, which I included for you at the end.

Chloe and Shaw didn’t even have names for the first several weeks. I didn’t outline or plot. I had no idea where the story was heading . . . I just had a haunted what if question in my head.

What if the man you’d grown up with, your lifelong best friend and secret crush, suddenly lost his wife? In what ways would his grief shape your new relationship? To what lengths would you go to be there for him?

Is it controversial? Inappropriate? Maybe. But love doesn’t have boundaries, and in telling this story, I let these heartsick, broken characters lead me. I knew they could find their happily-ever-after. And I also knew it would be a short story. Those were the only things I knew for sure.

I’m so glad that I stuck with it and spent all those evenings allowing their story to unfold. I hope you are too.

Excerpt

I’d thought about calling this whole thing off countless times—telling him no the next time he showed up at my door at two a.m. with a wild look in his eyes, his fists clenched at his sides, and whiskey on his breath. But I always saw what was beneath—his broken soul that needed soothing, and a heavy heart that I alone knew how to handle with care.

Who was I kidding? The only way I knew to make him feel better was to reach down and palm his erection, and whisper that I needed him.

I wanted him to heal. I wanted him to be okay. And for those few hours every week, if he could lose himself in me, I was only too happy to oblige.

Excerpt

 

Once upon a time, he’d been my everything.

He was standing in the corner talking to one of her great aunts, holding an empty glass that my brother had kept filled with whiskey all afternoon. I wanted to help—to do something, anything, to take that dark, stormy look out of his eyes—so I asked him if he wanted to get some air.

He took my proffered hand without a word, but instead of leading me outside like I expected—maybe to the front porch for a breath of the cool February air—he towed me upstairs. And straight into the bathroom. Without a word, he pulled my black cashmere sweater off over my head.

I stood there shocked for a few seconds. This was Shaw—my former best friend and secret lifelong crush. The man who once held my heart in the palm of his hand when I was young and foolish. And he had just been through the most traumatic event of his twenty-six years—losing his wife to a drunk driver. Yet here he was, singularly focused on getting me naked, and seemingly as quickly as possible.

REVIEW

Jill’s Review

Kendall Ryan’s Wednesday is a quick, fast-paced, hot and steamy read that will also tug on your heartstrings.

Each Wednesday we post tons of memes about Hump Day… who doesn’t like Hump Day right? I mean especially when you are actually getting humped on Wednesdays! But what if the man you are humping had been your best friend your entire life? What if he is now widowed, at 26, and suddenly can’t get enough of your body? What if you have given him everything and are ready to lay your heart on the line? What if you look into his eyes and see the guilt, the heartache, how closed off he has become? What if no one else knows it is going on but the two of you? Would you still love Hump Day?

Shaw and Chloe have been the best of friends their entire life. That is until Shaw got married and distance grew between the 2. But when Shaw is suddenly widowed he turns to his BFF for comfort and support. And by comfort and support I mean hot and heavy no-strings attached sex! Shaw is a deliciously alpha man that tells Chloe exactly what he wants from her. And it is HOTTTTTTTTT! But she is left confused and out of sorts as she desperately wants to be there for Shaw but also wants to know where they are going… if anywhere.

This novella had it all. It is a friends to lovers with a bit of forbidden love thrown in. While there is no getting around how delicious the sex scenes are, it will also touch your heart. As you watch these two struggle with what is going on and what it truly means.

I definitely recomend this book. It is the perfect way to spend a steamy afternoon… or evening!

I received a complimentary copy of Wednesday in exchange for my honest review.
