It’s official.
I, Ainsley James, am crazy.
Desperate and crazy.
It’s the only explanation as to why I’m nauseous, standing outside Maverick Lexington’s door.
I mean, it’s possible the stories about his deck of playing cards—with the words IOU scrawled across the back—are just rumors of the ruthless quid pro quo deals he barters.
But the flutters in my stomach know better.
Maverick is as cold as they come.
But, I need one of those cards.
I NEED to owe Maverick Lexington a favor…
Whatever the terms, I’m willing to pay.
Because, at this point, I have nothing left to lose.

I was looking for a read that would pick me up, and IOU by Kristy Marie was just what I needed! It was a fun romantic comedy, and I was quickly lost in the world and the writing.

I liked watching both Ainsley and Mav together. Ainsley was determined to get back on her feet with Mavericks help. Neither one of them expected that anything would come of this unusual arrangement, but it soon became apparent that he was becoming a bit possessive of her and he didn't want to let her go.

For my first read by Kristy Marie, I was quite pleasently surprised! I enjoyed the chemistry and the banter between the characters and liked watching the change in Mav throughout the story, I know for sure that I will be picking up more of her work in the future! 

I have a few teasers today, brcause I really enjoyed this read! The banter, the chemistry, all of it!

“Tell me something, Maverick.”
I hum out a nonanswer, trying to keep my eyes from drifting lower.
“Look closely. Do you see two shits or a fuck anywhere in my eyes?”
I rear back at her words. Did she—
“I don’t give a shit that I’m drawing a crowd,” she lashes out, shoving me away. “This is my apartment”—she eyes the vacant spot next to my car— “and my complex. I am not moving just because your little friends can’t focus on their game of Go Fish.”

“...I think we need to call for help, Mav.”
“Don’t call me that,” he barks between short pants.
I scrunch my nose. “Why?”
He manages, “Only my friends call me Mav.”
I almost smile. We are friends. He can fight it all he wants, but friends don’t let friends lose a game of Millionaire. “Okay. I’ll rephrase. I think we need to call for help, Dummy.”

“...I’m just saying you’re not such a bad guy after all, Maverick Lexington.”
I stand on my toes and kiss his cheek. “And I’m going to miss you when I move out.”
Those stormy eyes flash with an intensity I’ve never seen from Maverick. At least when he’s not been pissed.
His hands graze up my waist and over my shoulders until they rest at my cheeks.
His jaw ticks as he watches me watching him.
Gah, he really is stunning.
And then he growls out, “Fuck it,” before smashing his lips to mine.

A self-proclaimed reader enthusiast, Kristy started her writing journey back in 2009, reading and writing when her daughter was napping. Establishing her place in Corporate America (because something had to pay the bills), writing became her dirty, late-night secret.

After eight long years, she released her debut novel, Commander in Briefs. It was a long road, but she can honestly say, the road less traveled had the most beautiful sights.

The only thing Kristy Marie loves as much as reading and writing is sports! Especially those that require muscles and a nice ass. Her favorite is, and always will be, baseball. She's such a fan, that she even married her small town's high school's centerfielder where they still live with their three badass kids.

Commander in Briefs is her first series but definitely not her last.
