Excerpt

© Ivy Rose 2018


This is an unedited excerpt, subject to change.

 

Dominic had always been the bad boy from the other side of the tracks—the wrong side. He was always on a most wanted list, especially with the ladies. The girls followed him around like he was the pied piper and the guys considered him their hero. Me on the other hand, I was the nerd. I always had my head in a book and never thought for a second that Dominic knew my name.

Rumors were he’d only dated college girls and that high school girls weren’t enough for his experienced taste. Dominic looked older for his age so the rumors of the wild parties he attended were believable. He didn’t have a baby face or that lanky awkwardness that most teenagers go through. No, he was defined and cut like a Photoshopped image right out of a magazine. He had a body created only in imagination. His jaw was as chiseled as his cheekbones, his dark hair styled effortlessly. I envied the lucky girl who ran her fingers through it.

Dominic demanded attention when he walked into a room, even though he hardly spoke a word. There was something about him that just mesmerized a crowd. To watch him, to listen to his every word…he was hypnotizing.

Imagine how I must have felt the day he stopped in the corridor and asked me—no he told me—that I was going to prom with him. I was convinced I was on Punk’d. He was Dominic Stone and I was, well, just me. Avery Carmichael

This is my story and how I fell in love with a man who only knew how to love fiercely. So fiercely you had to feel it to believe it. He let his guard down with me. I was his sun, his star, his home…only I made a choice that shattered him more than life ever could. The worst thing is if you asked me if I would I do it again, my answer would be yes!

Author: A.S. Kelly

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: April 30, 2018

 

Synopsis

Sweet Days is a complete standalone and a part of the Four Days Series
 
Patrick Doyle is a rude, selfish and cynical man. However he will do anything for his friends and family. His dream of pursuing a music career came to an abrupt halt after a car accident involving those he loves most in the world, after which he dedicated himself to working full time in the pub he manages with his childhood buddies, keeping his distance from love or any other kind of commitment.
Erin O’Neill is a bright young woman with her future well planned: she’s about to graduate, she’s got a part-time job in Patrick’s pub and she has the perfect boyfriend. But then the unexpected happens, upsetting her life and turning all her well-laid plans upside down, leaving her alone and desperate.
Patrick isn’t the kind of guy to get caught up in others people’s problems, especially if it involves a damsel in distress, but he can’t help coming to her aid and finds himself catapulted into her life against his will—even if he would perhaps like to become part of that life—even if that means getting hurt, and hurting her too.
Because Patrick destroys everything he touches.

Excerpt

And then the door slams open.

And then the door slams open.
And he’s here.
He’s worried, and scared and desperate.
He’s absolutely perfect.
He looks at me and in a heartbeat all the pieces come back together and I can breathe again, as if he were the air passing through my lungs.
“I … I’m sorry,” he yells, trying to drown out the sound of the hail.
“It wasn’t your fault,” I yell back.
He takes a step forward.
“It is. I allowed all of this to happen. I established a reputation that meant that trashy girls like that would come here looking for me. I made it so that everyone believed that I am the dickhead that I really am. That you would think it too.”
“And you are,” I say, moving my wet hair from my eyes.
“I am.” He smiles bitterly. “But I don’t want to be like that any more.”
“No?” I ask with a pained voice and a bit of hope brushing up against my heart.
“No I don’t. But I’ll need your help,” he says, taking another step closer to me. “I need you to help me to be a better person.”
“M-me? Why me?”
Another step closer and his forehead is touching mine. It caresses my face and I close my eyes to let his touch imprint itself in my mind.
“Because with you, Erin, I feel I can be … different. I can be myself. I feel that I can finally be a man.”

Synopsis

Tormented rock star Liam O’Reilly left Dublin and achieved success, hoping to build a new life, free from the demons of his past. Now that seems he’s got everything he ever wanted, why isn’t he happy? Is it because he’s realized that the most important thing in his life is the promise that he never kept?

Sensitive and damaged Rain O’Donovan lives with her brother and his friends in a tiny seaside town north of Dublin. Once a popular and lively schoolteacher, a car accident has wrecked her life, so that her only pleasure is walking in the rain, and her world revolves around mundane tasks, devoid of hope for the future. The amnesia around the time of the accident that changed everything means that her struggle with life is a day-to-day torture, and, more than anything else, she longs for answers.

When Liam returns to his home town after his two-year absence, he’s determined to try to make amends for the terrible mistakes he made.

But is it too late to put things right?

Excerpt

“Didn’t you like staying there?” I ask, continuing to look ahead.
“It wasn’t for me. The big cities, the chaos, too many people—no, I definitely prefer places like this.”
“Like Howth? You prefer this town of fishermen to fame and success?” I say without realizing and turn my head to gauge his reaction. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to…”
He looks at the horizon in heavy silence, brooding at the words we have not exchanged.
“How do you know?” he asks without having the courage to look at me.
“The other night in the pub, some girls recognized you. You were—you are—famous? Yes?”
He lets out a cynical laugh before responding.
“Famous—not really. I cut a few songs, did a few concerts, that’s all.”
“And why did you stop?” I ask uncertainly. I’m afraid I may have gone too far.
“It wasn’t for me and then—I left something behind.” And as he says it, his gaze falls right on me making me blush terribly.
“A-a g-girl?” I look away immediately while wishing the sand would swallow me up.
The truth is I don’t want to hear his answer.
Liam remains silent for a few minutes and in that time I think my heart might really stop and need some air. Then he gets up and squats down in front of me, forcing me to look at him. He takes my chin in his fingers and looks me right in the eyes; they call to me and unsettle me like the sea in a storm that leaves no escape.
“Whatever it was is not important now,” he says simply and then does something I would not have expected.
What happens is, his forehead rests against mine.
What happens is, he smiles at me before closing in on my lips.
What happens is, I feel the heat of his breath on my mouth.
What happens is, his lips press against mine, delicate, sweet and wet.
What happens is, my heart flies out of my chest and lands right between his hands.
What happens is that I understand I am in love and in the same moment I realize that I have definitely been in love before.

Excerpt

“What happened?” Dropping the backpack on the bed, I rush toward him. “Do we have to—”

He catches my face between his big, rough palms and slants his lips across mine in a hard, violently hungry kiss. We didn’t make love last night—I passed out early from jet lag and Peter considerately let me sleep—and I can taste the pent-up lust in this kiss, the dark fire that always burns between us.

Backing me up against the bed, Peter tears off my clothes, then his own, and then, with no preliminaries, he thrusts into me, stretching me with his thickness, battering me with his hard heat. I cry out at the shock of it, but he doesn’t stop, doesn’t slow down. His eyes glitter fiercely as he stretches my arms above my head, his hands shackling my wrists, and I realize it’s something more than lust driving him today, something savage and desperate.

My body’s response is swift and sudden, like oil catching fire. One minute, I’m gritting my teeth at the merciless force of his thrusts, and the next, I’m hurtling over the edge and screaming as I splinter in brutal ecstasy. There’s no relief in this orgasm, only a lessening of impossible tension, but even that doesn’t last. The second peak, as violent as the first, comes right on its heels, and I cry out at the agonizing spasms, the pleasure ripping me apart as he drives into me, over and over again, riding me through the climax and beyond.

I don’t know how long Peter fucks me like that, but by the time he comes, spurting burning-hot seed inside me, my throat is raw from screaming and I’ve lost count of how many orgasms he’s wrung out from my battered body. The hard muscles of his chest gleam with sweat as he withdraws from me, and I lie there panting, too dazed and exhausted to move.

He leaves, then returns a few moments later with a wet towel, which he uses to pat at the wetness between my legs. “Sara…” His voice is rough, thick with emotion as he leans over me to brush a strand of hair off my sweat-dampened forehead. “Ptichka, I—”

A hard knock on the door jolts us both.

“Peter.” It’s Yan, his voice as sharp as earlier this morning. “You need to hear this. Now.”

Swearing under his breath, Peter jumps off the bed, finds his discarded jeans in the pile of clothes on the floor, and pulls them on without bothering with underwear. The look he gives me over his shoulder is fierce, almost angry, but he doesn’t say anything as he strides out of the room.

I sit up, wincing at the soreness between my thighs, and force myself to get up and take another quick rinse before getting dressed again.

I have no idea what’s going on, but I’m getting an awful premonition.

Excerpt

 

“Man, did you hear anything I said?” Elliott waved, snapping me out of my memory.

 

“What?” I must have looked like an idiot. Here I was, sitting across from her brother, remembering the last night I was with his sister. Thank God he couldn’t see below the table; my painful erection was straining against my jeans.

 

“She arrives tomorrow,” he repeated.

 

I shifted in my seat, doing my best to readjust myself. I nodded to the bartender for another round as I took a long swig, emptying my beer. It was going to be a long night.

 

“Aren’t you working for me tomorrow?” I asked.

 

“Yes.” He hesitated. “Parker, I have a huge favor to ask.”

He was crazy if he thought I would pick her up. There was no way I could do that. I wasn’t ready to see her.

 

“I hate to ask, but would you be able to pick her up for me and bring her to this address? I’ll be done with work at four but won’t be able to get there for two.”

He scratched out an address on a napkin and passed it over to me.

“I don’t want her to have to take a cab from the airport.”

 

I frowned as I looked down at the address he had written. It was about a block from my place. What the hell! It had taken me the last eight years to even think about dating seriously again. The past few years had been nothing but one-night stands, and I was growing tired of it now. I wanted more—I needed more—and now the girl I had never gotten over would be living less than a five-minute drive from my place. I took in a deep breath. I must have lost my mind.

“What time?”
