Finger Bang by Jade C. Jamison Blog Tour

Finger Bang BT Banner

Orgasmic Meditation? Therapeutic?! Kaylee Baker is horrified when her girlfriends suggest a trip to artsy Boulder, Colorado, to check out the latest craze. What her friends don’t know about Kaylee is that she is a little repressed, bordering on frigid, and the idea of a complete stranger bringing her to orgasm—therapeutic or not—is horrifying.

Blaze Donahue has admired Kaylee from afar for quite some time, and part of the reason he’s kept his distance is because he’s had no indication that she might even be interested. But when he’s given the opportunity to offer her his own version of OM with no strings attached, he makes an offer she has a hard time refusing.

When there are undeniable sparks between the two, Kaylee runs, afraid of the overwhelming feelings she has for this gorgeous, sensitive guy. Blaze feels compelled to convince her otherwise but wonders if he’ll be able to crack through the ice surrounding this sweet girl. Can they find true love or will it just be a one-time O?

WRRT Banner Excerpt

Rachel leaned over the table and tipped her glass at Kaylee as though it were a pointer.  “I’ll loosen you up before you graduate if it’s the last thing I do.”  She sat back up and what little sobriety she’d seemed to possess just seconds ago had disappeared.  “In the meantime, Maddy, Shannon?  Come with me to the bar to fetch more drinks and we can iron out the details without making our prudish friend blush.”

Well, too late.  As the three women slid out of the booth, Kaylee felt just that—a mad red flush racing up her face, stinging her cheeks.  She hoped it wasn’t evident in the bar or maybe she could blame it on drinking, but Rachel had, with her few words, made Kaylee not only feel prudish but embarrassed.  And in front of all people…

Once the women were up, though, Blaze showed no inkling of having registered his sister’s last words.  Kaylee began to feel awkward then.  What the hell would she say to this super hot guy after a conversation like that?  She had decided to ask him how classes were going when he said, “I can’t blame you really.  I don’t think I could do that either.”  He grinned.  “Even though I find the idea intriguing.”  Kaylee felt her cheeks redden again, but she smiled before looking down at her glass once more.  “Not gonna pay for it, though.  Fuck that.”

Kaylee picked up her glass and sipped what little water was left in it, simply to have something to do.  Her alcohol glass was drained as well, both down to ice cubes.  She didn’t know what to say so she nodded her head and smiled.  She’d always found Blaze’s looks and charm intimidating, so she was feeling more than a little tongue-tied.  She didn’t want him to think she was a snooty bitch, though, so she said, “I agree.”

He rested his chin on his arms on the chair and said, “What’s the part that has you freaking out more?  The fact that it would be a stranger or that you’d be paying for it?”

His question helped her relax a little.  It felt like he was taking a practical approach and wanted to discuss the matter as two adults.  They weren’t actually talking about orgasms or…fingers and clits, for God’s sake.  So she took a deep breath and gave the matter a little thought.  It didn’t take long for her to say, “I think it’s that it’s a stranger.”  She didn’t know why she felt compelled to continue—especially with Blaze—but she did.  “Seriously.  It’s hard enough to relax and then you have someone you’ve never met before trying to make you feel good.  I can’t imagine.”  She smiled and rolled her eyes, hoping she appeared relaxed now, because she was far from it.

Blaze didn’t intend to help the matter at all.  “What if it was you and me?”

Had she heard him right?  And why the hell was her heart thudding in her chest?  She had a hard time sucking in a breath, but when she was able to, she asked, “What do you mean?”  Her voice was so low, she was surprised he could hear it.

“If I was the therapist.”  He sat up and used the index and middle fingers of both his hands to air quote his last word.  “You know…my sister, Maddy, and Shannon go to Boulder to have some stranger finger bang them, but what if someone you knew took care of you here?”

Her jaw didn’t drop to the table but she had lost all words.  She just wished she could figure out if Blaze was yanking her chain or making her the offer of a lifetime.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Erica – ☆☆☆☆
Belying the hard-hitting, erotic title, Finger Bang is a lighthearted, sensual read. An enjoyable way to spend a few stress-free hours in someone else's world.

Warning: I had a difficult time getting into the book at the beginning, as I found Kaylee's friends overwhelming, as does she. In-your-face, demanding, slightly insulting, Kaylee's friends put her on the spot to go to Boulder, Colorado to 'loosen up'. Even though, Kaylee is sexually repressed, shy, and uncertain, my first impression of her friends was NOT complimentary. As a serious introvert, reading the 'banter' and conversation from page one was mentally taxing for me, and I will sadly admit that if I wasn't reading to review, I wouldn't have continued on because I was in the mood for stress-free.

With that saying, I did enjoy being in Kaylee's mind, was able to empathize with the character, sharing a similar mindset. The introduction of Blaze kept me reading.

Since I read reviews before I buy, I don't wish to ruin the reading experience for those who do the same, so you will not get a play-by-play/book-report-style review from me.

Finger Bang picked up for me at chapter 3, when Kaylee is alone and her friends are in Boulder getting their orgasm on. Experimenting with their own version of Orgasm Meditation, Blaze proves to Kaylee that she isn't sexually repressed. The sexual content is highly detailed and smoking hot. But it is written in a way that makes it sensual and intimate, not raunchy & over-the-top.

The friends return, insecurities, drama, and angst rear their ugly heads, creating the conflict of the story. The evolution of Kaylee & Blaze's relationship is an enjoyable ride.

3rd Person, dual-perspective: Kaylee & Blaze.
Recommend: contemporary romance fans who enjoy an angsty, steamy read.
Would I read more from this author in the future: Yes. When I'm looking for a few hours of guilty-pleasure entertainment.

Shelby – ☆☆☆☆
This was a cute story - it was light, refreshing, and sweet.

Kaylee is a college student, living with 3 friend/roommates.

She is the most "subdued" of her friends and tries to keep away from attention.

We meet Blaze, the brother of one friend, and the story really starts :)

This was a quick, sex-centered romance, with great chemistry and fun themes.

Shannan – ☆☆☆☆☆
How could you not want to read a book called Finger Bang?

I'm not sure what I expected but I was pleasantly surprised that is was such a sweet love story. I love that Jade stepped "out of the box" for this one. This isn't the typical Jade I am used to reading, it wasn't gritty or raw or that edge that she usually puts into her books. This was completely different, there was laughter, and aww moments and the sex scenes were slow and sweet. To me it was a quick read, but I've been waiting on this one since she announced the title! It hit my Kindle and I pounced on it. Devoured it in one sitting.

A must read!

Can't wait to see what direction Jade goes next!

Orgasmic Meditation??? Yes, I think I'll read that.. that was my initial thought when I read the synopsis for this book. The cover and title helped too if I'm honest.. Finger Bang.. I don't know about you, but my mind goes to dirty places...

Kaylee, our heroine... she's a sweet, shy gal with little experience in the bedroom... even with herself. Enter Blaze, her roommate's SEXY brother. He BLAZES the h*ll out of her. He's hot, he's patient and everything else she needs.

Blaze is even bold, yet patient enough to get her to agree to try something she never ever thought she would... orgasmic meditation, while her three other roommates head out of town to try it with strangers.

I LOVED this story. I loved Kaylee and her shy personality that blooms as the story continues. Blaze was sexy and fun throughout the story. Add in the three roommates and Kaylee's parents and it was an excellent well rounded story with some funny moments and other not so funny sexy scenes and everything between.

Mary Jo – ☆☆☆☆
"Orgasmic meditation?" Yep, I'd read a book about that.

Shy Kaylee Baker is wondering what the big deal is. She's had sex, not that mind blowing in her opinion, so why the fuss over this "orgasmic meditation" place in Boulder.

Blaze Donahue has had a crush on Kaylee since she became roommates with his sister, Rachel. Overhearing their discussion about heading down to Boulder to see for themselves what the OM was all about, he gladly joined the discussion.

I expected a lot more of the OM, but I have to say this is a nice, sweet romance that took me my back to my college years.

Ruthie – ☆☆☆
This sweet coming of age romance has an amusing starting point - a discussion about orgasmic meditation amongst four girls in their flat. Through this we learn just how shy and repressed the leading lady is, mainly due to her overly strict parents. However it turns out that she may just be about to grow up, thanks to her roommate's brother Blaze. And Blaze is seriously hot, lucky girl!!

I really enjoyed the story being told from both POVs, and the thoughts going through their heads were great fun to read. An enjoyable, lighthearted read.
