IMMDearAvaBookCover55x85_MEDIUM

The rich and popular Sharks rule at prestigious, ivy-covered Camden Prep. Once upon a time, I wanted to be part of their world—until one of them destroyed me.

The last thing I expected was an anonymous love letter from one of them.

Please. I hate every one of those rich jerks for what they did to me. The question is, which Shark is my secret admirer: Knox, the scarred quarterback and their leader, Dane, his twin brother, or Chance, the ex who dumped me…

Dear Ava,

Your eyes are the color of the Caribbean Sea.

That’s stupid.

What I really mean is, you look at me and I feel something REAL.

It’s been ten months since you were here, but I can’t forget you.

I’ve missed seeing you walk down the hall.

I’ve missed you cheering at my football games.

I’ve missed the smell of your hair.

The truth is, I wanted you back then—but you had him.

And then everything fell apart that night.

Don’t hate me because I’m a Shark.

I just want to make you mine.

Still.

An excerpt of Dear Ava appeared in the anthology Team Player 2 in 2019. (No longer available.) This full-length version is 100,000 words.

Excerpt Reveal – Inappropriate, Vi Keeland

January 15, 2020 By

 

 

Excited about Vi Keeland’s upcoming release, Inappropriate?

 Check out this SNEAK PEEK

 

 

I wondered if he’d be here.

I was mid-conversation with some former colleagues I hadn’t seen in a few years when I got my answer. The sight of him made me lose my train of thought.

On the other side of the room, Grant Lexington stood wearing a classic black tuxedo. He was talking to an older gentleman, which gave me the opportunity to really take him in—tall, broad shoulders, yet not overly bulky, a narrow waist with one hand resting casually in his pants pocket. Even from a distance, his confidence registered. There was something about the way certain men held themselves that showed they were in charge, and that really worked for me. It could take a man who was a seven and make him an eleven in my book. On the other hand, a handsome ten with a meek personality could be reduced to a five.

Mr. Confident held a drink in his left hand and raised it to his mouth, but he stopped before drinking. He seemed to sense something and looked around the room. When his eyes caught mine, a slow, wicked smile spread across his face. He excused himself from the conversation and strode toward me.

My body tingled as I watched him approach with long strides, and I turned from the group I’d been standing with.

“What a pleasant surprise,” he said.

I tried to appear casual as I sipped my champagne. “I’m filling in for Bickman.”

He nodded. “Of course.”

Grant eyed the group next to me. “Are you here with a date?”

“No. You?”

He smiled and shook his head. “Would a compliment be unwelcome? I wouldn’t want to sexually harass you.”

“Compliments are always welcome, Mr. Lexington.”

His eyes sparkled. Taking hold of my elbow, he led me a few feet away from the group I’d been standing with. “That’s a dangerous thing to say to a man like me.”

“What was the compliment anyway?”

Grant’s eyes swept over me. “You look beautiful tonight.”

I blushed. “Thank you.”

Grant stopped a waiter as he passed. He gulped back the rest of the amber liquid in his glass and slipped the flute of champagne from my hand, setting them both down on the waiter’s tray.

“I was drinking that.”

He motioned for the waiter to move along and returned his attention to me. “I’ll get you more when we’re done.”

“Done with what?”

He held out his hand. “Dance with me.”

I shook my head. “I’m not sure that’s such a good idea.”

He smirked. “I’m fucking positive it’s not.”

Release Day & Excerpt – Nicole Edwards 

January 14, 2020 By

The next steamy installment in Nicole Edwards’ Office Intrigue series…
 
THEIR NAUGHTY STUDENT

Release Date: May 28, 2019
Cover Image Copyright © Wander Aguiar Photography
Cover Model(s): Jacklyn S.

 
 
Have you ever wondered who holds the ultimate control in a relationship? More specifically, who wields the power when it comes to Domination and submission? It’s a question I’m driven to answer. Not only because it’s the basis for my dissertation, but also because I’m curious.And who better to give me a lesson than Gregory Edge, the tall, dark, and stoic Master who manages the infamous fetish club known as Dichotomy.

As a favor to my brother, Edge has agreed to give me a tour of the club. Only, we’re not on the same page as to what that entails. Luckily, Edge’s good friend Chris Cavanaugh makes an unexpected appearance, and the blond cowboy sex god has a way of turning the best laid plan on its ear.

Lesson one: I may not be submissive, but I’m more than willing to explore the subject.

Especially with these two hot Dominants as my teachers.

THEIR NAUGHTY STUDENT (OFFICE INTRIGUE, 6) – CHAPTER 1

EDGE Friday, October 19, 2018

IF SOMEONE WOULD’VE TOLD ME I WOULD one day be willingly waiting for Zeke Lautner’s sister to meet me at a kink club, I would’ve told them to lay off the sauce.

Seriously.

No one in their right mind would entertain the thought of engaging Jamie Lautner in any sort of kinky activity. Not if they wanted to live, anyway.

Except, that was exactly what I was doing.

Didn’t matter that I had an entire club to manage. I had somehow been roped into meeting sweet little Jamie so I could show her the ropes at Dichotomy. Not literally, of course. No way was I going to tie that girl up. I valued my balls far too much to allow that to happen. Zeke would castrate me in a New York minute if he found out.

Yet I couldn’t deny some sense of anticipation.

I had known Zeke for some time, and I’d had the privilege of meeting Jamie a time or two. More so in recent years when it seemed Zeke used her as his plus one whenever there was a function that wasn’t club related.

I tried to picture her as my little sister, but I had a hard time. It would’ve made tonight a hell of a lot easier if I could. Only then it would be weird because I couldn’t fathom introducing my sister into this world. In fact, that would be rather creepy.

Not helping, Edge.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. That inner voice was being a pain in the ass. Had been ever since Ransom Bishop came up with this absurd idea and Zeke had gone along with it. I had to believe Zeke was suffering some sort of mental breakdown. The man was so protective of his sister, I wouldn’t be surprised if there were a long list of injuries sustained at that man’s hands. Any man who wanted to so much as take the girl for coffee probably had endured a broken finger or two.

I shook out my hand. Like my balls, I’d grown quite attached to my fingers.

For fuck’s sake, Edge. Grow a pair, would ya?

“Master Edge?”

I turned to see Angela Evans strolling my way. She was one of the submissives on duty here at Dichotomy, the red studded collar around her neck a sign that she was here in an official capacity.

“Yes, Angela?”

“There’s a guest waiting for you at the check-in point.”

Fucking lovely.

Part of me had been hoping Jamie would freak out at the last second and be a no-show. I couldn’t get that lucky.

“Thanks.” I took a deep breath and tried to calm myself. No way could I give Jamie the proper introduction if I was a freaked-out mess.

You’re a Dom, for fuck’s sake. Act like one.

I hated that damn voice, but it seemed to be there more and more these days. I wasn’t sure why it thought I needed a mental push, but there it was, always shoving me forward. It was almost as though I was stuck in a rut, and without it, I would likely find myself sitting at home, my hand down my pants as I ate pizza in front of the television.

And what? Have a beer or two? Get fat and lazy? Come up with an excuse to be alone?

As I was making my way to the front entrance, I passed Ransom and I couldn’t miss that wicked grin on his face.

Yeah, buddy. We’re doing the death march. Are you happy?

Ransom Bishop was an instigator. He enjoyed the hell out of setting things in motion. He was always inserting himself in various situations, motivating people to do things they likely wouldn’t do otherwise. All so he could sit back and laugh. Somehow, I’d fallen into his trap and I hoped for his sake I walked out the other side in one piece. Otherwise, I was going to beat him within an inch of his life.

I approached the front entrance, fully expecting to see Jamie standing there. Probably decked out in jeans and a T-shirt, not understanding what fetish wear was or why it was standard protocol in a club of this nature. However, I didn’t see anyone out of place as I scanned the area.

My eyes shifted to the bar. Two Doms were standing there chatting. No submissives. I peered into the Dom lounge, but I only noticed Mistress Jane speaking to Mistress X while four male submissives knelt on the floor at their feet.

Maybe she bolted before you could get here.

I turned, ready to head up to the front desk to see if she’d done exactly that when my gaze landed on a young woman standing to the left of the scanning room where everyone was patted down to ensure they didn’t have weapons or video equipment.

Holy Mother of God.

Yeah. I really needed that voice to shut the hell up. It was hard enough to breathe without his interference because … Holy Mother of God.

There was six feet of lithe brunette watching me, her long limbs drawing my attention as I took her in from head to toe. Not an inch of denim was covering her. Then again, the brown and gold corset she wore didn’t cover much of her, either. It cinched in her trim waist and highlighted her breasts, cleavage cascading deliciously over the top edge, which hugged her breasts lovingly. The brown spandex boy shorts covered her private parts but did nothing to hide those long, long legs.

For fuck’s sake. Say something, dumb ass.

“Master Edge?”

I forced a smile as I composed myself, allowing my Dom face to fall into place. Ogling this woman wasn’t an option and I needed to remember that.

“Jamie, you look … lovely.”

She smiled and her face was so radiant it damn near blinded me. On a normal day, I wasn’t one to wax poetic about a woman’s smile, but I couldn’t help it.

“Thank you.” Her chest bloomed with color and the sweet rosy red inched upward until it highlighted her cheeks. It was in that moment that I noticed how fucking young she was. She was ten years younger than Zeke, which made her twenty-three or twenty-four.

Twenty-fucking-anything was insane for me to consider. I was thirty-six, which made this girl twelve years younger than me at the very least.

It’s not like you’re old enough to be her father.

Well, technically, I probably was. Not that I’d been having sex at the age of thirteen, but it would’ve been shortly thereafter.

“Thank you so much for allowing me to come here tonight,” she said sweetly.

“It’s my pleasure to have you as my guest.”

Her brown eyes darted around and the curiosity I saw there made my dick stir with anticipation. I fought it back, reminding myself she wasn’t just any submissive who was looking to explore this world for the first time.

She was Zeke Lautner’s sister.

She was an innocent.

She was off-limits.

How the hell had I allowed Zeke to talk me into this?

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Sex and Other Shiny Objects is Lauren Blakely’s newest standalone in the Boyfriend Material series. Lauren is one of my favorite authors and I’m loving the characters in this series. They are smart, sassy, sexy and swoony! If you read Asking for a Friend you’ve met Tristan and Peyton. Best friends who shared a smoking hot kiss ten years ago, but the timing was never right to move past just friends. Now they are both single and when Peyton needs help with a special project, Tristan volunteers. He knows it’s a bad idea, getting closer to her, but he can’t help himself. She needs help testing out scenarios that happen in a romance novel. Do buttons really fly off when you rip off a shirt? Is sex on a staircase possible? How easy is it to shred panties? All answers I wanted to know myself! Tristan is one of Lauren’s swooniest heroes! He’s just so sweet and sexy and I love the way he loves his brother (who I also loved!) and his friends. This story was a second chance, best friends to lovers romance and it was just what I needed just when I needed it! I laughed, cried, got hot and bothered and smiled a lot! Not only was Tristan’s relationship with Peyton fantastic, I absolutely loved Tristan and his brother, Barrett. They had some of the greatest scenes and it made me want to call my siblings just to say hi!

 

She looks at my face, her breath stuttering like she’s trying to collect herself. Then her eyes roam down. “You. Work. Out.” Every macho instinct in me tells me to preen, to show off muscles that sweat and time at the gym have carved. But I resist those urges. “Every now and then.”

“Shut up. These are religious abs. These require daily practice.”

I laugh at her assessment. “Yes, my abs are quite devoted.”

 

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Sex and Other Shiny Objects is the second book in the Boyfriend Material series and Lauren’s next romantic comedy. You can read it as a standalone but I highly recommend reading Asking for a Friend. It’s so good!! And it’s where I first met Peyton as Amy’s bestie, and Tristan as the delicious restaurant owner and friend to both ladies. It was definitely a tease to what was up next for these two!
Tristan and Peyton have been the best of friends since they met freshman year in college. And in all the years they have only been friends they have only crossed the line once. It happened ten years ago with one passionate kiss that neither of them would ever forget but never acknowledge. It wasn’t the time then and it wasn’t the time now. Tristan is Peyton’s best guy friend and the only man besides her father who she could trust. And Peyton is too important to Tristan to go there. They both have their reasons and they are good ones but…
Peyton volunteers as tribute for a project that her friend Amy needs help with. One that would benefit them both in business. It would help Amy with research for a book and Peyton with her lingerie boutique and blog. To practice tropes in romance books! She just needed a willing partner and why not her best guy friend? It’s only five little tests. It’s not like they would actually be naked. It’s not like it would turn into more, right? They could resist temptation. Their friends might say there is something between them but no, neither of them have said a word about it. They could do this, right?
Come on!! They can do the research but you know they can’t keep their hands off each other! Red lace, chocolate, popcorn, and sexual tension is a recipe for so naughty nights. Ladies! Get on the lingerie that makes you feel sexy and read this book!! Then take a nice bath. Then maybe pounce on your partner, if you don’t have one, pounce on yourself!
Damn…Lauren’s books always make me happy! They make me smile, swoon, and get all hot and bothered. They are always so much fun with a twist of naughty and full of love. I can’t wait for Lola’s story, I do love a good second chance romance.
P.S. I always get giddy when I see my name in a book ♥️
Quotes:
“I need to do something that stands out. Like what you do with your videos.”
He gives me a wry leer. “You could post fifteen seconds of you trying on lingerie.”
I grab my napkin, ball it up, and toss it at him. “Smart-ass.”
“Do you have any idea how gorgeous you look? How beautiful you are? You’re so fucking stunning in every way, but especially like this.”
Peyton: Also, it turns out that not only does the hero in this book like to shred panties . . . he likes to shred them with his teeth.
I trip.
My phone flies out of my hand and skids across the concrete landing as I fall on the staircase, tumbling over my own feet.

 

CHECK OUT WHAT EARLY REVIEWERS ARE SAYING!!

“This book was the perfect way to start my 2020. Sex and Other Shiny Objects left me with a grin on my face and my heart is still sighing when I think of it.”

~ Melissa, Goodreads

“These stories from the Boyfriend Material series just keep getting better and better. Just when you think Lauren can’t write a better story, she goes and does it.”

– Joanne on Goodreads

“I absolutely loved this storyline and often wondered if popping buttons and bathtub hijinks were really feasible. The way that Ms. Blakely presents it is fresh, funny and uncomfortably real!”

~Bibliophile Chloe

Blurb:
The second the test-the-sexy-scenes offer landed in my lap, I said yes.

After all, I’ve been damn curious about a few things I’ve read in romance novels. Do buttons truly go flying across the floor when you rip off a guy’s shirt? Is staircase sex hella hot or does it leave you with a big old bruise mark on your back? And don’t even get me started on all that panty shredding, and whether it even works.

Time to find out as I embark on Project Sexy Scenes Research, at the request of my hotshot book editor bestie.

All I need is a willing scene partner. Enter Tristan, my best guy friend. The witty, tell-it-like-it-is, bearded hottie volunteers for the experiment.

He’s also the guy who gave me the most devastating, toe-curling kiss of my life ten years ago. But nothing has happened since then.
And nothing will come between my panties and our friendship now since we have a plan to keep it PG.
But once the buttons start flying, all bets are off…

a paddle. Desperately needing a new place to live, I receive an offer I can’t
refuse, and you never look a gift horse in the mouth, right? Unless that

Connor; there is no request too small in my eyes. When I blurt out an offer I
know she can’t refuse, I don’t think either one of us realize that our lives
are about to change. Something else I didn’t comprehend, how hard it would be
to keep my hands off of her, or my mouth, or my… you get the picture. It’s our
time, no more hiding or waiting in the wings. I’m pulling out all the stops.
I’m tired of being in the friend-zone. It’s time to take what I’ve always
wanted.
But nothing
is easy for us. Our road is full of twists and turns and a few surprises along
the way. When push comes to shove and the cards are thrown on the table, can we
navigate a new life, especially when we’re just getting started?

Cover Reveal – Then You Happened, K. Bromberg

January 9, 2020 By

TYH - CR banner

“Bromberg is a master at turning up the heat.”

–Katy Evans, New York Times bestselling author

Then You Happened, an all-new standalone contemporary romance about trusting fate and finding yourself again from New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg, is coming February 3rd and we have the gorgeous cover!

THEN-YOU-HAPPENED-KRISTY-BROMBERG

Jack Sutton was the man I didn’t want to need.

His know-it-all attitude. His annoying suggestions. His outlook on life.

He was determined to help me while I had resolved to figure it out on my own.

But he taught me things I’d forgotten.

How to trust. How to believe in myself. Who I was.

The problem?

I went and fell in love with him.

Tatum Knox was the disaster I should have walked away from.

Her ruined reputation. Her failing business. Her chaotic life.

She hated me at first sight and yet intrigued me all at the same time.

I was only supposed to be there six months.

I was supposed to use that time to make amends for things I’d done wrong.

Instead I fell in love with her.

They say it’s better to have loved and lost, then not to have loved at all. Does that hold true when the love is based on a lie to begin with?

(THEN YOU HAPPENED is a STANDALONE enemies to lovers, small town romance. Full-length at one hundred and seven thousand words)

About K. Bromberg

New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.

A mom of three, she plots her novels in between school runs and soccer practices, more often than not with her laptop in tow.

Since publishing her first book in 2013, Kristy has sold over one million copies of her books across sixteen different countries and has landed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists over twenty-five times. Her Driven trilogy (Driven, Fueled, and Crashed) is currently being adapted for film by Passionflix with the first movie slated to release in the summer of 2018.

She is currently working on her Everyday Heroes trilogy. This series consists of three complete standalone novels—Cuffed, Combust, and Cockpit (late spring 2018)—and is about three brothers who are emergency responders, the jobs that call to them, and the women who challenge them.

Blurb:
The second the test-the-sexy-scenes offer landed in my lap, I said yes.

After all, I’ve been damn curious about a few things I’ve read in romance novels. Do buttons truly go flying across the floor when you rip off a guy’s shirt? Is staircase sex hella hot or does it leave you with a big old bruise mark on your back? And don’t even get me started on all that panty shredding, and whether it even works.

Time to find out as I embark on Project Sexy Scenes Research, at the request of my hotshot book editor bestie.

All I need is a willing scene partner. Enter Tristan, my best guy friend. The witty, tell-it-like-it-is, bearded hottie volunteers for the experiment.

He’s also the guy who gave me the most devastating, toe-curling kiss of my life ten years ago. But nothing has happened since then.
And nothing will come between my panties and our friendship now since we have a plan to keep it PG.
But once the buttons start flying, all bets are off…

 

 

 

 

 

 

EXCERPT

Strong muscles, carved abs, that sprinkling of chest hair that’s the perfect amount of manliness.

 

My mouth waters.

My stomach flips.

 

And I reprimand the hell out of my brain, the indecent wench.

 

Friends don’t picture friends in the buff.

 

“Let’s try it one more time,” I say with a crisp nod and a cool tone. “We’ll do it by the book.”

 

He clears his throat, his tone shifting. “Peyton, I have another idea.”

 

I blink. “You do?”

 

“I do.” He pauses, scrubbing a hand across his chin. “Do you trust me?”

 

The question is rhetorical. “Of course I do.”

 

He shakes his head, like that’s the wrong reply. “I know you trust me. But can you trust me right now? To take the lead?” His voice is gentle but somehow commanding at the same time. It’s soothing, and the question says he knows me, but he also needs me to let go. To give in to him.

 

Can I?

Will I stumble if I do?

 

His eyes lock with mine, and the intensity in his gaze is reassuring, like the security he gave me at his restaurant the other night when he said, I’ve got you.

 

I give the only answer I can. “I trust you.”

 

“Good. Then let’s do it.”

 

“If you say so, Fred.”

 

His lips curve in a crooked grin. “I do say so, Gingersnap.”

 

He hits play on “Wicked Game” on his phone and sets it on the table at the bottom of the stairs, and the smooth, sultry strains of Chris Isaak float through the air.

 

The music pulses, low and sexy, like it’s playing in my body, beating inside me. The effect is heady. It sets the mood for the scene.

 

A scene we’re simply acting. That’s all this is. Acting and reenacting.

 

He arches a brow, glances at the stairs, then says in a rumbling, sexy voice, “Been thinking about you all day. Need to get you upstairs and get this off you.”

Audio Review Tour – Promises, A.E Via 

January 8, 2020 By

 
 
Narrated By: Aiden Snow
 
Length: 7hrs 31 mins
 
Publisher: Tantor Media
 
Blurb



Duke Morgan owns and operates one of the largest bail bond companies in Atlanta. Not only does he bond criminals out of jail, he and his notorious group of bounty hunters will also track them down and ensure they show up for court.


Roman “Quick” Webb is Duke’s business partner and best friend. Both men are in their forties and have given up on the happily ever after with the ranch-style home, and white picket fence. They’d both tried it and failed miserably. But they have their friendship and they have the business.


When Quick’s son, Vaughan Webb returns – after seven years-from studying abroad with his law degree in hand, he’s back to claim what he’s always wanted…his fathers’ best friend…Duke Morgan. Vaughan has always claimed to be a classic gentleman with an old soul. He was focused and dedicated to becoming the man worthy of Duke’s love.


It’s a complex and messy situation as Duke and Quick figure out how to still be best friends when one of them is sleeping with his friend’s one and only son. But when Duke is hurt on the job, all the unimportant trivialities fall to the wayside and Vaughan and Quick put their heads together to save Duke.

 

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Promises Part I is the first book in the new series, Bounty Hunters by the talented AE Via.

I didn’t read this when it was first released but I had the pleasure to listen to the audio. Oh man! Aiden Snow and AE Via together are pure magic. I’m in love with his voice and he just brings all of her characters to life with his sexy accents, growls and deep timber. We met Duke in Don’t Judge, and I was more than ready for his story. Duke and Quick work together as bounty hunters and Quick’s son Vaughn is coming home after years away. He’s not only coming home to see his father, he’s coming home to claim the man he’s always wanted. Duke. His father’s best friend. He’s a grown man now and he’s always known he was meant to be with Duke. When Duke’s hurt getting a bounty, Vaughn has to find a way to save his love. I loved this story! Duke and Vaughn are HOT but also sweet and romantic. I loved the friendship between Duke and Quick and Quick and Vaughn’s father son bond. I pretty much loved everyone. Hee hee. I’m looking forward to listening to Quick’s story!

 

 

A.E. Via has been a best-selling author in the beautiful gay romance genre for five years now, but she’s no stranger to MM. She’s been an avid reader of gay lit for over fifteen years before she picked up her laptop to place her own kiss on this genre. She’s also the founder and owner of Via Star Wings Books, having published a couple great new up and coming MM authors.


A.E. has a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from Virginia Wesleyan College that she used to start her own paralegal firm after she graduated in 2008. She spent five years preparing and filing bankruptcy petitions for struggling blue collar workers who couldn’t afford to file with a lawyer. It was a rewarding and satisfying career… but another path called to her. Writing.


A.E.’s writing embodies everything from hopelessly romantic to adventure, to scandalous. Her stories often include intriguing edges and twists that take readers to new, thought-provoking depths.


Now that she’s gotten over her 10 books published hump, she’s kind of known now for her hardcore, play rough and love hard, bad boy, alphas. However, she does like to push herself to step out of her comfort zone, exploring different tropes, but she won’t push herself into a whole other genre. She’s head over heels for gay romance and she has tons of more hot stories to tell.


Be sure to visit Adrienne on her social media pages and subscribe to her newsletter to never miss another release date! Go to A.E. Via’s official website http://authoraevia.com for more detailed information on how to contact her, follow her, or a sneak peak at upcoming work, free reads, VSWB submissions, and where she’ll appear next.

Cover Reveal – Hometown Heartless, Carrie Aarons 

January 8, 2020 By

 

HOMETOWN HEARTLESS by Carrie Aarons
Release Date: January 23

Add to Goodreads:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/49073316-hometown-heartless

 

 

 

Blurb:
One year ago, the boy next door was captured as a prisoner of war.

The boy whose window faces mine.
The backyard buddy who bandaged up my skinned knees.
The childhood crush that kept me up at night, wondering if he’d ever be my boyfriend.
The town hero I wrote endless letters to after he shipped out.
The green-eyed charmer who promised me a kiss the day I turned eighteen.

And now, he’s home.
But he didn’t come back as the boy I once knew.
He’s a man now, one with demons I can’t comprehend.
The damaged soldier keeps telling me I’m not his anymore.
That the war took him, turned him into someone unrecognizable.
What he hasn’t considered is that it took me, too.

He swears there is nothing left between us, that his heart died overseas. But with each look through our windows, we both know his lies are just that. With each fated meeting, the truth only becomes more evident.

Everett Brock occupies the shadows now.
And as much as I try to pull him into the light, it seems the switch is permanent.
What he doesn’t realize is that I’m willing to follow him into the darkness.

 

 

About the Author:
Author of romance novels such as The Tenth Girl and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the love stories of her imagination, and the athleisure dress code, much better.

When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She’s a Jersey girl living in Texas with her husband, daughter and furry son.
