This story is based on actual events. My name is Emily Brimson. I'm a paralegal working in New York. This book tells of my successful seduction of my handsome and successful married boss, a super-lawyer at a New York law firm. I can't say that I am totally proud of myself for seducing my boss behind his wife's back but at least this is an honest, if very explicit and sexually graphic retelling of that evening during a hot and sticky July of 2016. Male listeners will love this true-life tale of seduction and sexually hardcore activity between myself and my male boss. Women listeners will love this even more and many will identify with me, although they may think that I am a complete bitch. I hope you will all enjoy the honesty and sensually descriptive recollection of my sexual experience and will share with your friends, if you dare. Caution: not for those with delicate constitutions or weak hearts. If you hate women who seduce married men, then this will inflame your senses whilst leaving you sexually aroused and needing relief. You have been warned! Warning: this book contains graphic descriptions of very hardcore, explicit and graphic sexual activity. This includes vivid descriptions of oral sex between me and an older man, bareback vaginal sex, and descriptions of ejaculation and many more hedonistic acts that are too graphic to include in this book description. This short story is suitable for those aged 18+ only - not for minors! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Thurlow Holmes.

My visit in the whishes that I hear in the frequency of thought impressions around all providential succeeding of psyche energy is for me a task printed in the absorbed curtains which follow the shadows as detection of all fragments of the conscious. Just like strumming on the lead guitar announcing the world s ceremony as the planet is rotating as the thinking does. Thought can be found everywhere there is brain activity, the libido makes from thought an engine to attract a partner or to volunteer a heart in the orchestra of the generous people, which deliver their music as lives holding the little orphans by a delicate candy nature where both are a palm from the escalating tree where the loving goes. Thought drives in free motion of every serious life coma and liberates the new countries from rules and regulations for a better breathing because to think is natural and laws are not.

'Prepare to have your heart wrenched by this emotion-drenched story.' - Sunday Mirror 'A heartbreaking read about love and loss.' - Bella Magazine 'Echoes of David Mitchell, Jodi Picoult and John Green' GRAZIA ***** 'A wonderful book, beautifully written with great understanding and realism. I believed every word. I felt like I was part of Rob and Anna's and Jack's world when reading about 'this club, no-one wants to join. '. So, so sad, but, ultimately, such a rewarding read. Outstanding.' - Amazon reviewer, 5* 'This is a truly beautiful story told from the heart and written with such great feeling.' - Amazon reviewer, 5* 'A heartbreakingly beautiful, well written, emotional, delicate, and highly poignant novel from an author whose own life was in somebody else's hands, and yet he owned it.' - Amazon reviewer, 5* ***** A story about love, loss and finding hope - against all odds. Rob Coates can't believe his luck. There is Anna, his incredible wife, and most precious of all, Jack, their son, who makes every day an extraordinary adventure. Rob feels like he's won the lottery of life. Or rather - he did. Until the day it all changes when Anna becomes convinced there is something wrong with Jack. Now Rob sleepwalks through his days, unable to bridge the gulf that separates him from his wife, his son and the business of living. But he's determined to come to terms with what's happened-and find a way back to life, and forgiveness. We Own the Sky will resonate with anyone who has ever suffered loss or experienced great love. Luke Allnutt shows that the journey from hope to despair and back is never as simple as we think, and that even the most thoroughly broken heart can learn to beat again. **** Praise for We Own The Sky 'A beautiful, hugely emotional story.' - The Sun 'A heartbreaking read about love and loss.' - Bella Magazine 'Prepare to have your heart wrenched by this emotion-drenched story.' - Sunday Mirror 'This tender depiction of a father's love for his son is utterly heartbreaking and will stay with you long after the book has finished.' - The Express 'Deeply affecting. A beautiful, remarkable book.' - Lucy Diamond, author of The Secrets of Happiness Utterly beautiful, heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting. - Rachael Lucas, author of The State of Grace What an incredible book this is - such gut-wrenching honesty and depth of emotion. Anyone who wishes David Nicholls would write faster needs to grab this with both hands. It's a truly stunning achievement. - Jill Mansell Beautifully rendered and profoundly moving, We Own the Sky illustrates the lengths we'll go to for those we love. Luke Allnutt is a major new talent in fiction and his debut is not to be missed. - Camille Pagán, bestselling author of Life and Other Near-Death Experiences ***** What readers are saying about We Own The Sky: Emotional and moving. - 5* review, Amazon This is a truly beautiful story told from the heart and written with such great feeling. - 5* review, Amazon I loved this book for its honesty, it's rawness and for its abundance of pure love. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and it will, I know, stay with me for a very long time. - 5* review, Amazon We Own The Sky by Luke Allnutt is a story about despair and fear, but it is also sprinkled throughout with hope and love - the love one has for their child and how far you would go for them. A stunning debut and should be on everyone's to-read list this year. - 5* review, Amazon
