Making It Better

by Lyss Em

“You still mess me up after all this time, Luc.”
“Not my problem.”

Court’s forceful brand of dominance pushes Lucan’s buttons like nothing else, but he can’t forget how badly Court hurt him in the past. Their romance six years ago was heady, intense, and sizzling—and left Lucan with deep emotional scars. When he runs into Court at a fetish party, the spark is still there. But so is the pain.

For Court, Lucan is the mindfuck he never got over. He still doesn't know why Lucan ended things, and when he sees Lucan in the flesh again, the desperate need to dominate comes rushing back. Court would do anything to have a second chance, but he won’t let Lucan mess with his head and break his heart again. Or so he tells himself.

“I’ll do it all right for you this time if you just teach me.”

When Lucan agrees to show Court how to be a good Dom, the two headstrong men toe a delicate line between restraint and uncontrolled passion. Will the same sick love that consumed their past destroy their future?

Making it Better is a standalone novel with an HEA ending.

About the Author

Lyss Em, who has been writing under the pen name Lyssa Dering since 2015, is the author of How to Love a MonsterBabyvamp, and several other indie-published titles, as well as Fangs Like Me, published with NineStar Press, and “Summer of My Sex Demon,” published with JMS Books. Since her first foray into Harry Potter fanfiction, Lyss has been drawn to twisted, angst-filled M/M pairings. Under Lyssa Dering, she has so far written about a brain-eating antihero (How to Love a Monster), a high-tech matchmaking program gone wrong (Lovesick), and a brooding dhampir letting his savage side loose (fangjunkie27), with more fantastical ideas always lurking. Under Lyss Em, she writes contemporary erotic romance.

Lyss resides in the Midwestern United States with an aggressively affectionate tabby cat. When not writing, she fancies herself a connoisseur of “trash”—devouring the highest quality kinky, enemies-to-lovers, and dubious consent M/M she can get her hands on. Lyss is nonbinary and has no preferred pronouns—any are fine.

You can find Lyss primarily on Twitter, where she loves hearing from readers.
