Series: Thrust #3
Author: Sybil Bartel
Releases: June 27, 2017


I’m silent. I’m trained. I’m lethal. 

My hand skimming down your thigh, my gaze a weapon—I know more ways to kill you than please you. 

But you’re not paying for my aim. You’re paying for my control. Bringing you a breath away from ecstasy, watching you beg as I hold back your release, I’ll show you exactly what you’ve been missing. Your hunger is my currency and five thousand is my price. I only have one rule—no repeats, because I’m not for keeps. I’m for sale. 

One slow grind and I’ll give you exactly what you paid for.



Sybil grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She used to dream of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books about wistful summer days and first loves drew her into the world of storytelling. 

Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn't get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she's not writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you really want to know about Sybil.

She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a Sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaked her out. Her favorite word is desperate, or dirty, or both, she can’t choose. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never rely on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.

To find out more about Sybil, visit her on Twitter to see what she’s up to. Commitment phobic until she met her husband, she loves those little 140 character snippets.

Or check out her Facebook page, if, you know, you’re feeling more wordy.


Irina Tsarko Fedorov made a deal with the devil five years ago, and now that their deal has been completed she wants out... but when you play with the devil your bound to get burnt. She agreed to be his wife for a healthy sum of money, but she never agreed to be his abused, mindless, slave. He has taken so much from her, and left her with so little to give. She knows if she doesn't escape his clutches soon, she will completely loose what little strength she has left... but he doesn't intend to let her leave so easily!

When Dane Marek walks into his home and sees the blonde beauty that has invaded his territory he can't help but want to help her, even if she isn't so accepting of his help. He is a highly skilled man, capable of taking life with his bare hands, but for the first time in a long time he has the deepest desire to piece one back together. The desperate, broken woman before him needs someone to step in and save her from the hell she is stuck in, and he wants nothing more than to be that man.

The moment you crack the cover on this sensual little read you will be pulled into a dark and dirty little world that only Ms. Bartel could create, her words will penetrate your soul, and have you completely captivated... to the point that you forget about the world around you. Grind is one of those reads that has the power to annihilate your heart, and with each word that follows slowly piece it back together again! 

Dane and Irina were two wounded souls, that had given up on the possibility of a happily ever after, but once they came into one another's lives they started to rethink their stance, not without a lot soul searching of course. They had this instant chemistry, that knocked them both out of their elements, but with each new encounter they shared they began to build trust in one another, and it slowly starts to build into something more... and totally unexpected. It was a beautiful thing to watch Irina discover her new path in life, and see her find strength in herself, and become more confident with each passing day. For me it is a real literary treat to find a book that completely consumes me, invades my thoughts and leaves me emotionally exhausted, and this one accomplished that! Highly recommend you meet Dane, he's sure to rock your world!!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.
