It’s been SIX YEARS since my debut novel REV ME UP was released, in the days before Kindle and Nook became household words, and PDF was the only way to download digital books, unless you owned a Sony e-reader. When REV ME UP was first released, gritty language and graphic depictions of one man and one woman engaged in sex were still shockers. E-books were sold exclusively by their publishers and reviews were written only by book bloggers. How times have changed!
REV ME UP was sold in 2006 and published in 2007 under another title, before Ellora’s Cave picked it up in 2009, after the rights expired with its original publisher. Thousands of copies later REV ME UP and its stand alone sequel REV ME TWICE continue to sell every month. I couldn’t be happier that readers are drawn to these ‘good girls gone bad’ story heroines and their Harley-riding, military heroes. REV ME UP has received some amazing Top Pick reviews, was a GoodReads book club pick, and survives as an old timer in an erotic romance industry bursting with… ahem, spanking new titles.
Since my author beginnings with REV ME UP, I’ve published many erotic titles, launched a mainstream career under another pen name, and have been included in cutting edge anthologies edited by the ever-awesome Delilah Devlin for Cleis Press. Look for the collections SMOKIN’ HOT FIREMEN and HIGH OCTANE HEROES in July and August 2013. These anthologies are bound to rev your engine! Are you ready?
REV ME UP by Adele Dubois
Night Owl Romance TOP PICK! Five Hearts!
Harlie’s Book Blog, Five Harlies!
Lisa didn’t mean to cause the crash. She’d always been a Good Girl. When she flashed her breasts from an Annapolis sidewalk at the hunk riding by on his Harley, her wild impulse seemed like harmless fun. How could she know he’d hit the curb and land at her feet?
To make amends with the cop from Santa Fe, Lisa agrees to have a cocktail with him at a marina bar. When she slides on the bike’s rear leather seat and wraps her arms around Antonio’s buff body, they take-off on the ultimate ride.
Antonio’s in town for his brother’s naval academy graduation before heading to Quantico for FBI training. Lisa’s there to break-up with her cheating midshipman boyfriend. Revenge sex with a hot cop may be the perfect way to unleash her inner Bad Girl. Just in time too. Her boyfriend’s out for blood and lethal revenge of his own.

The first thing Antonio Alvarez noticed about the woman on the sidewalk was her waist length, light brown hair. He revved his Harley and watched her stroll along the curb line of this high-end tourist avenue with her head high and tanned arms swinging. Her hair swayed along her back, swishing between her shoulder blades, the tips caressing her bare waist above the rolled-down shorts curving over her hips. The white stretch of fabric that barely covered her round, slightly protruding butt clung to the split in her cheeks like the skin on a ripe peach. Below, the hem flashed orbs of alabaster skin like tiny quarter moons. A thong framed her tight, exquisite ass. Long, taut, tanned legs and small feet in high espadrilles moved in time to the sway of her hair. She must have heard his motorcycle behind her then, because she looked over her left shoulder and slowed her stride to check him out.
When she turned her face, their eyes met and Antonio’s adrenaline surged as if she had kissed him. His heart raced and he revved the engine of his bike again. The noise made her laugh, a clear, pleasant sound that reverberated through the air, linking them. He breathed in her laugh, trying to capture the peal inside his chest to cheer him the rest of the day.
The woman smiled back, flashing white, perfect teeth. The symmetry of her sculpted features and open, friendly expression drew him closer. Passersby strolled in the opposite direction eating ice cream, walking their dogs or pointing out quaint shops to visit. Antonio barely noticed them. The woman in the woven espadrilles, tight white shorts and gauzy red cotton tank top stood out in the crowd like a holograph against a flat surface. Suddenly, the reason for his visit to Annapolis vanished. Antonio needed to meet this woman and see her again.
Looking at her jolted his dulled senses and numbed heart to life after a long drought. He hadn’t so much as glanced at another woman since Estela’s death. It had been eighteen months since the woman he loved was killed in the line of duty and he had never been unfaithful to her memory.
The woman on the sidewalk revived him like a swim upward from the cold depths of the sea.
His friends would say it was about time.
