Novel Grounds Semi Annual Literary Awards 2014 winner of Best Breakout Novel For Fallon (Chicago Syndicate, #1).
Veronica Webber is single again after being in a loveless marriage way past its expiration date. For the first time in a very long time, she feels free and after being burned so badly by love in the past, any thought of romance is the last thing on her mind.
In walks a man from her past, Trevor Allen, a tall, dark, and handsome womanizer who is usually all about the bottom line. For Trevor that bottom line has always been made up of the countless notches on his bedpost. But when he sees Veronica after so many years, he can’t help but be drawn to her and know her again… even if that means being friend-zoned from the start.
As this unlikely pair spends more and more time together, they quickly realize that there might be something between them that goes past “just friends.” But there’s just one tiny detail that makes this situation slightly more complicated… Trevor was Veronica’s ex-husband’s best man at their wedding nine years ago.

“Go to college,” they said. “Get a good job,” they said. “It will be a piece of cake.” Well, whoever they are, they lied. Sure, college was a blast, but after college, not so much.

Ex-Army Ranger Erik Grady lives for the job. So when his chief at the Boston Fire Department offers him two choices—mandated therapy for supposed PTSD or a permanent desk job at the station, he reluctantly agrees to see a shrink. Only this doctor is unlike anything he expected. Female and curved in all the right places? Check. Hotter than a four-alarm fire? Check. The kind of woman that can heat his blood in and out of bed? Check, check. And oh, yeah, he just happens to have first hand experience…
Of all the men to walk into psychologist Olivia Jones’ office, why did it have to be him? Her one-night stand isn’t playing by the rules of just. One. Night.

She can handle it. So what if the chemistry between them is combustible? She’s a professional, damn it. She’ll date Mr. I’m Too Sexy For My Bunker Pants. But it won’t end in the fun he expects.
It’s time to see how much heat this fireman can take…

And all of this, unfortunately, has to be done in a small southern town where gossip is a prized currency.
As the summer forges on, Iris struggles to find her place in a town that’s changed as much as it’s stayed the same, and it doesn’t help that Weston doesn’t seem to know how to treat her. Through awkward encounters, tense conversations, and heartbreaking revelations, neither Weston nor Iris can ignore the spark they ignited four years prior. But as Iris’s past and the prospect of her future violently clash, it’s no longer a question of can they ignore it, but will they have the chance?

Paisley and Burke now face the aftermath of deceit, but can they do so together or will their love be a casualty?
The first time I saw Will Munroe I had him pegged as a typical LA douchebag—a little too handsome, a little too rich, a little too into his probiotic kale smoothies. The next time I ran into him—at his daughter’s parent/teacher conference (me: teacher, he: parent)—I noticed his steel grey eyes, his hard chest under a crisp white button down, and his suggestively bare ring finger. I was hooked.
If life really imitated art, he’d have swept me off my feet and taken me right there on the principal’s desk. Instead, we are stuck in our assigned roles. He’s the workaholic single dad of a precocious girl child, and I’m her fiery substitute teacher. Never the two shall meet. Enter one zany, yurt-dwelling ex-wife, a stock market that never sleeps, and some over-the-top, A-list fundraisers, and I’ve got plenty of drama ahead. Better to keep my hands to myself.
But when Will asks me out for a pancake breakfast, how can I resist? My heart (and my stomach) say yes, but am I willing to risk my job for a short stack and a romp in the hay? A slow, sensual, mind-blowing romp in the hay…

JAKE “You want to know why I train? It’s because it’s the only time I’m not thinking about Tyler and the fact that I killed him.”
Jake Pennington is a hockey super star. Hot. Rich. Gorgeous. And super talented. But when a personal tragedy rocks his world, Jake’s life is ripped apart as he is brought to his knees. Broken and completely devastated, he retreats to his family cabin in Canada desperate to forget the world and something he once knew as happiness.
MACKENZIE “My therapist would say it was me trying to reclaim my life back. To recapture the girl I had once been—frightened of nothing and living life on a whim.”
Mackenzie Eden is battling her own demons. After a horrific incident in college, Mackenzie throws herself into her job as a means to outrun her pain and her litany of phobias. When her path crosses with Jake Pennington she sees a way to bring them both out of the darkness and back into the light.
Come Undone is a story of two people finding each other in the darkness. A sports romance, it will make you laugh, cry and fall head over heels in love with two very broken and stubborn people.
Come Undone is a standalone sports romance, unrelated to any other book by this author.
Jake Pennington knows he is skating on thin ice. A super successful Ice Hockey player, he has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons since his world fell apart a year ago. If he is to remain at the top of his game then he must stay away from the women, drink and parties because they aren’t doing him any favours. He doesn’t think his life could get any worse… until it does in the most awful way. Turning his back on the sport he loves and the life of privilege he leads is his punishment, but not punishment enough as far as he’s concerned.
Mackenzie Eden is out to prove herself. Working for one of the biggest Sports/Entertainment agencies owned and run by her father, she needs to make sure that people know she has the job because she is damn good at it; and not because of who she is. When she finds herself battling her cousin and best friend for the newest signing, she makes a bet. She knows nothing about Ice Hockey, but she knows that she can convince former NHL Superstar Jake Pennington back on the ice. In fact she is so confidant, she decides not only will she get him on the Ice, but she will get on a Texan team lying in the doldrums. Now all she has to do is find Jake Pennington.
I am a huge fan of Sports Romance, particularly when it relates to Ice-Hockey. Often though they can be overly technical on the sport itself and being British, it can take a bit getting my head around the NHL terms. What was wonderful about this book was that for me it had the perfect balance. Yes, it is set in the world of Ice-Hockey, but this book is so much more than that. It really is a great love story and I struggled to put it down.
I don’t want to go too much into the storyline, but I can say that Jake isn’t the only one fighting demons. They may have had different experiences, but these characters really do fit so well because they have experiences that effect the decisions they make and the way they lead their lives. They become a real balm to one another, providing light and optimism even if they try and fight it.
Penny Dee is a new author to me, but I will definitely be reading more of her work. I loved the chemistry she created, the storyline, but most of all I loved that she threw the massive OMG moment into the prologue. It is pure genius really, because it suckered me in after punching me hard in the gut first.
A great story with great characters. If you are new to Sports Romance then this would be a great place to start. If you want high emotion and laughs and you want your heart to swoon, this book needs to be added to your TBR today.
Playing it safe has never felt so dangerous…

It’s a risk-free assignment, until he’s required to fake a relationship with her in order to blend in.

Having it all is a fantasy, right?
Carrie Shelton thought her boyfriend was too good to be true. Her best friend’s brother? A guy who loved antiquing? Who cuddled on the couch while watching foodie YouTube clips and talking about artisanal spices? Who helped her accessorize her outfits?
So when he ran off with Kevin, the owner of an antique shop, right before his sister’s wedding, Carrie’s life went from fantasy to nightmare.
As maid of honor, she can’t back out of the wedding. And her ex is the best man – but now he has his own best man.
She needs a date. Stat.
Enter Ryan. Sure, he’s a hot male stripper at the O Spa where she works as junior designer, but he’s a few years younger and just, you know — a friend.
Perfect. She needs a friend more than she needs a boyfriend.
A weekend of playing her boyfriend so she can save face is a lot to ask, but for some reason Carrie doesn’t understand, Ryan’s all in. Enthusiastic, even.
Especially when it comes to physical displays of affection.
Public kisses turn to private confessions, and pretty soon, Carrie can’t tell the difference between fantasy and reality.
Because if Ryan’s just pretending he’s in love with her, then why does the chemistry between them — and between the sheets — feel so real?
Carrie can’t settle for almost, though. She’s already done that. She’s not putting her life on hold anymore.
Turns out Ryan won’t, either.
He’s holding out for more.
Thank You For Holding is a STANDALONE in the On Hold series. You do not need to have read book 1 in the series, but after reading about Carrie and Ryan’s friends-to-lovers adventure, you’ll want to. 😉

The last thing I need is to be saddled with the on-the-run niece of the crime family I’m about to take down. Gianna Silva wants me to help her find her missing mother. But I’ve got bigger fish to fry—namely, her cousins Stefano and Santos Silva. They’re flooding the West Coast with deadly counterfeit goods, and I’m about to drop the net on their entire operation. To keep Gianna out of my way, I’ve agreed to help her but under one condition: What I say goes. No questions. No pushback. I make the rules.
The problem is Gianna Silva doesn’t know the meaning of the word “rule” and she’s on to me. For two years, I’ve hidden my true identity behind a wall built from stone-cold revenge. I thought it was indestructible—especially against someone with the last name of Silva—the family I’ve vowed to destroy…
If I could find my missing mom by myself I would, but the only enemies she’s ever had are my father and his powerful family. Confronting the Silvas alone is too dangerous. I need an insider who knows how to play their game. John Rossi, with his bad-boy confidence and access to the family compound is my best hope. I’ve bargained away the last dollar in my savings account in exchange for his help, but I’m beginning to think I made a deal with the devil.
I didn’t expect his rules to include sharing a cabin—and a bedroom with him—northwest of Nowheresville. I don’t trust him, or my attraction to him. But to find my mom, I’ll break every one of his damn rules, regardless of the consequences…

The handsome artist who agrees to paint the portrait is Gabriel Owens, a gifted painter who is partially sighted. He is sarcastic and brash, and Natasha finds herself always saying the wrong thing at the wrong time.
It turns out that Josh isn’t the perfect fiancé that Natasha believed him to be and she is left reeling, her life in free fall. Does Gabriel have the tenacity and inner strength to pick up the pieces when he himself has so many insecurities and his own life is far from perfect?
Perfect Imperfections is the first book in the Moments series. It’s an emotional story, which can be read as a standalone novel. You won’t find a cliffhanger here, but instead a heartfelt ending that definitely won’t disappoint.
I’m not your boyfriend. I’m not the guy next door. I don’t even play nice.
My hands twisting in your hair, my whispered demand in your ear—I’m the fantasy you’ll wish you never had.
When I’m through with you, every inch of your body will know where I’ve been. Your only thought will be the insatiable ache between your legs as my name drags across your lips. You won’t crave more, you’ll beg for it. Because I’m not just a cocky smile with military hardened muscles you paid five grand for—I’m the experience you’ll never forget.
One night with me and you’ll know exactly why women pay me to be rough.
We fell in love on a beach, got married in paradise, and I carried her off into the sunset. It should have been perfect, but saying “I do” doesn’t guarantee a happily-ever-after.
Two years later, I barely recognize either of us behind the walls we’ve built.
It’s time to bring it full circle. Back to a tropical paradise. Back to find out if we can still make this work.
I’m not willing to give her up, but to save us, I have to risk everything.

For him, it was supposed to be a job to make amends for a past wrong.
They were never meant to fall in love.
Move on with your life, they said.
Forget her, they said.
But how could Ben Edwards forget the woman who was supposed to be his forever? When Grace Stevens disappeared—without a word, without a trace—she took half his soul with her.
Despite the heartbreak, Ben tried. He tried to take their advice by pursuing his career. He tried to find fulfillment in his work. He tried to find peace.
Grace had been the love of his life. Her fingerprints were on every surface of his existence. He had success and wealth. He had everything, except her.
Then fate stepped in one serendipitous night. The hope he’d held on to for three long, agonizing years appeared before him in the form of a picturesque beauty.
Was she real, or an apparition returning to haunt him? He wasn’t sure, but he wouldn’t stop until he found his missing love. Every minute mattered, and he wouldn’t waste a second chance.

New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the world of the Reapers Motorcycle Club…
Looking back, none of this would’ve happened if I hadn’t dropped my phone in the toilet. I mean, I could’ve walked away from him if I’d had it with me. Or maybe not. Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that Shade always gets what he wants, and apparently he wanted me. Right from the first.

OMG!!! I have missed Joanna Wylde’s Reapers Motorcycle Club!!!
Her MC world is like no other!! Her characters have depth, the drama has purpose, the hotness requires cold showers! You just can’t go wrong when you read her books!!
In this installment we get the young but wise Shade. He is the youngest National President in history… now don’t get me wrong.. this does not make him a kid.. he is all man, all biker, all badass!!
He has earned his title. He takes his title to heart, even if that heart is not complete.
Enter Mandy McBride. She is one tough chic. She has had a tough time, from upbringing to men. She believes she will suffer the McBride curse. She will not be happy in love. And she is fine with that. She will have her fun… protect her heart, and be her sisters rock, and help with her kids. She will do anything for them. So love is not part of the plan.
Destiny always has a funny twist… because once Shade sets his eyes on Mandy, all bets are off. Well except the raw deal that gets Mandy in his bedroom to begin with…. She fights her way to steer clear of all things Shade, she just knows he is not one to keep. He will hit the road soon enough… so whats the harm… she can have some fun right?? Shade isn’t looking for an old lady, so he is upfront with her. They have a deal. They have a lot of fun. And of course.. their hearts listen!
Don’t be fooled by this being a novella, there is nothing missing! Joanna carefully crafts this story where it will leave you satisfied, yet as always, yearning for so much more about the Reapers Motorcycle Club!
“Nope. That’s not how it works,” Shade said, sliding his hand up into my hair. “It was about a member of a support club lying to the national president of the Reapers. He tried to cheat me out of five hundred bucks by promising something he didn’t own. We can’t let guys like Rebel get away with that shit. Wouldn’t matter what it was about, the principle’s the same.”
“There are so many things wrong with that statement that I don’t even know where to start. I…I literally can’t figure out what I want to argue with you about because it’s all wrong. All of it.”
“It’s how our world works,” he said, rubbing up and down my lower back. He might’ve been trying to soothe me but my thoughts were spinning too fast. “There’s good and bad. Part of the good is that when you belong to someone in a club, it’s not just his job to protect you, it’s the whole club’s. I’d die for Dopey’s old lady and I don’t even like the bitch. He’s my brother, though, and she’s his property. It is what it is.”
There’s no such thing as too much fun…
Incredibly, immeasurably, categorically false.
Try: It’s all fun and games until someone ends up in the tabloids.
Kade Edenfield was rock royalty. If every rock god in history gathered for dinner, his seat would be at the head of the table. He was that good. His band was elevated to a level few ever reached, and he was having the time of his life.
Until one misstep too many landed him on the front page of every gossip rag around the globe, and the band’s label decided to saddle them with a PR priss whose sole mission in life was to suck the fun right out of his.
He wanted her gone.
Until he realized he just plain wanted her.
Aubrey Taylor didn’t ask to be assigned to babysit a band full of troublemakers, but she wasn’t given a choice. Wanted or not, she intended to fix the mess they’d made. She’d do it quickly, efficiently, and then she’d get the hell out of there. Unfortunately, after meeting their openly hostile singer—the one with the notoriously menacing stare—it was clear she was in over her head. When Kade made a point to challenge her at every turn, unafraid of using intimidation to get her to back down, she found herself in even deeper trouble.
While she ‘officially’ resented and feared him, their power struggle secretly turned her on.
She desperately wanted to win their little standoff, but what was she supposed to do when she realized she wanted him even more?
A sexy and spicy sequel to our sizzling saga of Noah and Ethan’s story.
Someone has been suspiciously sinful, but who can blame him? Our lusty lads, Noah and Ethan, are led into licentiousness, by a libertine of a spooky spirit.
Driven by Noah’s desire to protect his partner, Ethan, from this depraved demon, Noah enlists the talents of a Paranormal professional to solve his elemental problems and we meet the mysterious Marvel but is he a Master or Masquerade? Friend or Foe? Specialist or Spurious?
As they deal with despondency and despair, testosterone and tears, in determining their destinies to be loyally loving and tenderly together. Resentment runs rampant and as the intensity increases, it adds fuel to the fire. Will the deceit be discovered before it destroys? Will they be rewarded with retribution or repercussions? Will the truth be triumphant and the visitor vanquished?

The people we love are often those who could cost us everything.
For Detective Chase Guilliot, coveting a gangster’s girlfriend might just cost him his life. After months of staring at surveillance photos, Chase feels like he knows Shelby Brignac, the breathtaking beauty who’s found herself in his target’s bed. From everything he’s seen, Shelby doesn’t look like a stupid woman, but when she walks into his precinct to sell out a career criminal, Chase has to wonder. She’s either going to be the key to his case or the end of his career. Not that it matters since he’s tasked with keeping her alive.
Whether she wants him to or not.
The Beginning of Us (originally titled The Switch) is the second book in the Men with Badges series about sweet and sexy alphas who know what they want and go after it.
New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the world of the Reapers Motorcycle Club…
Looking back, none of this would’ve happened if I hadn’t dropped my phone in the toilet. I mean, I could’ve walked away from him if I’d had it with me.
Or maybe not.
Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that Shade always gets what he wants, and apparently he wanted me.
Right from the first.
She’s my everything, my true soul. My entire world was rocked by Belle. So young, so dumb, I didn’t realize until that night…
Three years later and she’s finally all mine. Not just my girlfriend- no so much more.
I wasn’t supposed to fall in love with my best friend’s brother, but when you meet your true love, nothing can stop the fall.
That’s what happened with Jax and me.
He’s the one who holds my soul. And nothing can ever change that.
God, I hope she’s right.
The second book in Zara Cox’s sexy Dark Desires series. Perfect for fans of Maya Banks and Jodi Ellen Malpas!
At first glance, stripping naked at my ex-girlfriend’s place of work might not seem like the brightest way to win her back.
But trust me on this count – she always liked me best without any clothes on. And sometimes you’ve got to play to your strengths when you’re fighting an uphill battle. I’m prepared to fight for her…and to fight hard. I might have let her slip through my fingers the last time, but no way will that happen twice.
He’s the one who got away…
The nerve of Tyler Nichols to reappear like that, stripping at my job, showing off his rock hard body that drove me wild far too many nights. That man with his knowing grin and mischievous eyes is nothing but a cocky, arrogant jerk to saunter back into my life. Except, what if he’s not a jerk . . .? He’s the one I’ve tried like hell to forget but just can’t. Maybe I’m cursed to remember him. My money is on him being the same guy he always was, but what’s the harm in giving him a week to prove he’s a new man? I won’t fall for him again.
But how do you resist the hot one…
Just a few weeks ago, computer prodigy China Mack’s typical night in involved Endor Star Wars pajamas and a sensible bedtime. Now she’s dating gorgeous tech guru Jackson Cooper—one of Forbes’s Top Ten Eligible Billionaires—much to the Twitterverse’s delight.
Turns out, going from socially inept hermit to poster girl for geek chic has its challenges. China’s relationship gets even more complicated because her role heading the top-secret Vigilance program—where she’s partnered with Superman clone Clark Slattery—makes her a target. And when ruthless businessman Simon Lu plans to co-opt Vigilance software to blackmail government and military employees, he’ll need China’s cooperation—willing or otherwise.
But not every enemy is so easily identified. Some hide in plain sight, in very high places, and mistaking foe for friend could be the last mistake China ever makes…
Time doesn’t heal.
Makes you stronger, rougher,
Now that I’m back,
Xavier Scott can’t hurt me again,
Won’t hurt me.
I’ve seen my share of pain,
And released it.
After one look,
And I’m that broken, naive girl again.
I want him,
My body aches for him,
My soul needs him.
But, my head will be damned to fall for that again,
Fall for X.
He stole my heart before,
But not this tyme.

Standalone. No Cliffhanger. Book 2 of the Soul Mate Rescued series.
Not suitable for readers under the age of 18.
I freaking love Tiffany Snow!! She gives us hot and funny romantic suspense novels that just makes you want to start investigating crimes!! lol
Book 2 starts off a few weeks after the last book. We have China Mack, techie guru and lovable nerd girl who is totally in a HOT relationship with Jackson Cooper, —one of Forbes’s Top Ten Eligible Billionaires. And he’s is witty, a genius in his own right and did we mention gorgeous??!! yeah.. totally!
So we have China in her new position as boss at the no one knows about government agency. She can’t even tell Jackson, and he is not a happy camper with this. But she is truly doing her job to protect him and his work. Which of course in Tiffany Snow fashion, is what totally starts the trouble.
So China goes from behind the computer to actually participating in some 007 investigations, that she is absolutely not prepared for and totally throws her OCD schedule out of whack. Thank goodness much to Jackson’s chagrin she has Clark to protect her. Yeah.. you remember Clark.. the hottest of hottest alpha seal-ish type that used her for info. Used her by pretending to be interested in her. oh yeah.. him!
I have got to tell you that there is no one better at the 3’s a crowd thing than Tiffany Snow! She absolutely is perfect at writing sexual tension between 2 men and one woman that does not go down the path of cheating or trivial blasé triangles. She adds espionage, drama, bullets and oh yeah.. lots of hotness! She is the expert at team alpha one or team alpha two, and at times you are totally switching teams and are absolutely jealous of the heroine!

Absolutely failing at number four.

You meet someone, fall in love, and live happily ever after…right? That’s what Scotsman Jim MacDuff thought, but after years of being blissfully happy in London, everything he holds dear comes crashing, spectacularly down.
Hampshire born Felicity “Flick” Johnston-Hart is passionate about painting what she sees through the glass and she adores her first love, Jim, more than life. But her mother’s high hopes for her only daughter eventually corrode Flick’s happiness, making her believe that painting and Jim are simply not enough. Just like the subjects of her paintings, she begins to experience her life as an observer instead of really living. And she realises that some decisions—even though they may be wrong—once made cannot be undone.
After settling back into life as a single man in a beautiful Highland village, Jim is graced with an unexpected and unwanted visitor bringing painful news. A letter from beyond the grave leads him to do something he never imagined and takes him on a journey he didn’t anticipate.
Can he heal the pieces of his heart and move on? Or is it true that a broken heart can never be a blank canvas?
Damian Tate. One look into his sad green eyes and I was hooked. I wanted to be the one to make him laugh, to make him smile. I hadn’t expected him to be the one to make me blush, to make me hot…to make me fall in love. He was my first kiss, my first love, my first everything. I wanted forever with him, but life got in the way.
He enlisted, I went to college, and for years we were never in the same place long enough to pick up where we left off.
Thirteen years after he left, tragedy brings him home. The stoic boy I fell in love with grew into a quiet, dangerous and wildly sexy man. He still tugs on all the right strings for me, but he seems determined to keep me at arm’s-length.
However, when trouble comes knocking at my door, he is the one to put himself between that trouble and me.
Spending time with him might drive me insane, or it might be our second chance at first love.

Unfortunately for me, her story involves an ex-husband, a kid that hates me, and a pretty nice shot to my nuts. She’s a woman who thinks too much, always with a plan, a list, but I’ve got a list of my own.
Mateo likes to tease me that I have lists for my lists. But I didn’t hear him complaining when he stumbled upon my Sex Bucket List.

Ryan “Renegade” Kepler
I’m the type of man who knows what I want. I make up my mind and stay in my lane, never veering off the course I set for myself.
Going into the military? Did it. Youngest member of the Moonshine Task Force? That’s me. Get my best friend’s older sister in bed? It was my pleasure.
Age means nothing to me. I’ve seen and done things men twice my age never will. What I want more than anything is someone to share my life with and that person is my best friend’s older sister, Whitney.
Ryan is ten years my junior, but damn, being a cougar never felt as good as it did the night we spent together. Now I’m struggling with wanting things to either go back to the way they were or spend every night in his arms.
Make my wedding planning company the best in the south? Did it. Ignore the way my body trembles when I see Ryan? Epic fail. Freak out when I see a positive pregnancy test staring back at me? Complete with mascara running down my face and clutching my pearls.
Looks like things won’t go back to the way they were. There’s a man in my life that doesn’t take no for an answer. He’s the one who makes my blood run hot, cheeks turn red, and heart beat wildly within my chest. His name is Renegade.
If you were dying, what would be on the list of moments that mattered most to you? That shaped your life? What would you choose to remember or choose to ignore even in the face of death? Who would you miss? What would you regret not doing? Who would you regret not loving? In the face of your own mortality or in the face of your lover’s, what would be part of the list?
Apple McCoy finally gets what’s coming to her…a Happily Ever After!

Death—it is inevitable, but I didn’t know it could come so early.
If things didn’t change, mine would be sooner than expected.
My life hasn’t been easy, though with the way I act you’d think it has been.
I’m a joker, a partier, a playboy, a prankster. But I’m also broken.
A shell of a man.
Ryan Hunter, lead guitarist with nothing to live for.
Not even music soothes me completely.
My band is back together, we’re doing really well—but I’m in a rut.
I’m lost, thinking about my past is swallowing me whole.
Especially since she turned up.
Our new PR manager. She’s feisty, in control and so damn sexy I can’t stand it.
But that woman is not only taking my PR role from me, she’s also taking my breath away, and that I won’t stand for.
Not with my past, not with my demons.
Tillie Marks has to go.
And I will make damn sure it happens!
I tried to keep my distance. I knew how much trouble Summer could cause me once she was, in her words, “legal.” She wouldn’t accept that being my best friend’s sister meant she was governed by another set of laws.
She was the forbidden fruit.
The “off-limits” trophy prize I couldn’t win.
The “don’t look and sure as hell don’t touch” female in my life.
But Summer pushed until I was backed into a corner. My hands and mouth had nowhere to go but on her. That was my story, and I was stickin’ to it.
I’d known Colton Graham all my life, and he was always a pest … until he wasn’t. That handsome face and masculine body he grew into became hard to look away from, and the more he matured and distanced himself from me, the more I wanted him close.
Since I’d grown up with a brother, I knew how college guys operated. Relationships were off the table, and fine by me; I only wanted two adventurous months with Colton. I knew he wouldn’t be my last, but I was hell-bent on making him my first. What was the harm in that? I could do casual … or so I thought.
Summer Trouble is a Ruby Romp Novella, meaning it contains insta-lust, along with an abundance of dirty talk and graphic sex. It can typically be enjoyed in one reading, so get ready for a fast-paced “get your panties wet” ride.
Amaya Maxwell only has one goal in life–dancing for a premier ballet company. She doesn’t date and she definitely doesn’t date jocks. In her eyes, they are all cheaters. However, when sexy quarterback Tate King and his reputation are thrust into her life, she finds herself falling fast and hard.
Tate King has one thing on his mind, getting drafted for the NFL. When an injury takes him out of the game and onto the dance floor of a feisty ballerina, he isn’t expecting to fall in love. Tate doesn’t do relationships, or at least he didn’t until Amaya hit him with the boom…
