~ Excerpt One ~

“Oh.” I look up to see a dog’s droopy cheeks lift up as its tongue spills out the side of his mouth, his large teeth, white and jagged. A dribble of saliva falls onto my bare stomach. Gag. “What do you want?” I hold my hands up in surrender. I don’t want the big guy to attack me. Although he doesn’t look scary or threatening, he must weigh a hundred pounds at least. He has smooth brown hair that lays down across his forehead. A dusting of white blazes across his chest and toes. He’s cute. I tentatively brush my hand along his neck since he seems nice enough. I feel around for a tag or chip or anything to identify him, but there’s no collar.
“Where’s your owner?” I glance up and down the highway, but barely any cars pass. What the hell is a dog doing out here? He lowers his head into my hand and puts all his weight on me, begging for attention. I crack a smile. “You’re a good boy, huh?” I run my hand across his flabby cheek, keeping my movements soft. I don’t want to rattle him. This guy could definitely eat me.
I pull my hand back, but he leans forward, nudging me with his snout. I wrinkle my nose. Needy little fucker. I lean back against the car tire. The dog follows me as I lean back and plops his body beside me, sitting upright. Well he is definitely a she. I can see that loud and clear now.
“Sorry, girl. You’re just a big brute, aren’t you?” As if understanding my words, she widens her big brown eyes and nudges me again, this time my cheek while wagging her tail. I laugh as I pull out my pack of reds and light a cigarette. She lies down and rests her long head across my hurt knee.

Nathalie Carter wants one thing: independence. She has paid her dues by living at home under her parents’ watchful eyes, earning grades to give her a ticket out and joining clubs she had no interest in to get into college.
She plans to experience things she believes every new adult should—from falling in love to playing beer pong and pulling an all-nighter to skipping class because she’s too hungover. But nothing ever seems to go as planned, and she gets pulled into a world she never imagined existed.
Samuel Torrington’s past refuses to release him from its vise-like grip; but he has a plan, and once his senior year of college is over, he can finally move away and start anew. His addictions help him get through day-to-day life, but he’s constantly battling darker demons.
Fate brings the two together, and chance takes them on a roller coaster ride that neither would dare hop off. Within destiny’s grasp, they realize there are two things impossible to fight—addiction and attraction.
