Her unfaithful rock star boyfriend, Ray Ryker, may have some competition in a handsome young stranger, Adrian McAllister, who she first only imagined in her dreams.

Love Bites Hi-Res

synopsis (2)

I didn’t think one night could change the course of my entire life.

With his piercing green eyes, Calder Atwood sees straight through my defenses.  He’s more than sexy; he’s a werewolf.  Though he says he wants more than a one night stand, I can’t believe him.  I learned long ago that men lie, and I vowed not to follow in my mother’s footsteps, pining away for a man who doesn’t know the meaning of the word fidelity.  The only way I trust myself not to break that promise is to avoid Calder completely.

Eluding him becomes impossible when I’m thrust into a world of danger and darkness.  Despite my resistance, Calder forces his way into my life and my resolve weakens with each day we’re together.  After an attack leaves me on the edge of death, I find myself bound to him, body and soul.

Now, I can’t walk away, regardless of how badly I yearn to do just that.  goodreads plain

naughty book reviews
Kiss Me Kate (The English Brothers, #6)Kiss Me Kate by Katy Regnery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Kiss me Kate was such a sweet, sexy and romantic read. As with most of the previous English Brothers novels, we are given a story where love started when the characters were young but was so strong that when they cross paths again as adults, they're able to work through the rifts that caused their separation back then and find their happily ever after.

That is the one component I love most about this series. I'm all for the "instalove" we read about in most romance novels but the formula Katy Regnery gives us in the English Brothers Series is refreshing and delivers a soft, sweet, feel good romance you can't help but enjoy.

The love for the Kate and Etienne started during a Spring Break visit to her cousins in Philly. That week became magical to the both of them and sparked a love that lasted years later.

After reading Kiss Me Kate and learning more about Etienne and after being introduced to him in Seduced By Stratton, we're given a perfect example of perspective. He turned out to be completely misunderstood by the English family and ended up being a really great guy. Since Kate didn't live there, she had the opportunity to get to know the real Etienne.

By the end of the story I was "Aww-ing" nonstop. The final book had to be the sweetest story of them all.

Hearts and flowers filled my heart with this read. ❤️

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00057]Publication Date: February 13, 2015
amazon buy button

Book Description
Since high school everyone thought Jake Bender would end up behind bars; after all, he comes from a long line of bad boys. He spent years away from the place he called home. When he finally comes back, everyone thinks he's just a punk kid all grown up who’s now running a dive bar called The Night Club. What they don't know is he heads up a special task force, which cleans up neighborhoods and makes them safe again.

Stormy Ryan has always felt more comfortable with her books than with people. She loves to spend her days within the pages of her books. When her second-hand bookstore is robbed for the third time in as many months, her employees quit leaving her to run the shop on her own. With the pressure of having to deal with her shop and people, not to mention the declining neighborhood, she is at the end of her rope.

When closing up her shop late one night, she is held up and the neighborhood bad boy saves her, putting both of them at the forefront of a psychotic’s obsession.
Being bad has never looked so good.

Eighteen year old Jake Bender sat slouched over in a chair in the principal’s office listening to the asshole saying over and over and over how he’d end up in jail or dead. Blah, blah, blah. It wasn’t anything he hadn’t heard a thousand times before. He was thankful this one wasn’t followed up by fists like his old man liked to do.
“Are you listening to me, boy?” The principal slammed his fist on the desk and walked around wagging his finger in Bender’s face. “You mark my words, boy; you’re heading for jail or the cemetery. Either way this world is better off without you. You could disappear and no one would care. We don’t need you.”
He sat there and slowly looked up at the principal raising an eyebrow. He’d been hearing this for years from his old man; that song was stuck on repeat. Bender was counting down the days until he could leave this place behind. He’d go full time at the garage, find a place to live, and try to stay alive. Once he was on his own he’d be the one who came first, no one else, just like he’d been raised, look out for number one.
“Don’t give me that look, boy.” He raised his hand as if to slap him.
Bender sighed and leaned back. He knew there was no way he was actually going to hit him. Besides, if for some reason he did, it wouldn’t hurt as much as what his dad did on a daily basis. “Do it. I dare you.”
They stared at each other before the principal backed down. “You’re not worth it. Get out of here and don’t come back for a week.”
“What, no Saturday detention?”
“Never worked for you before; sure isn’t going to work now. We just have to get through the next two months, unless you want to drop out now. Then you’re society’s problem.”
Bender stood up. “Way to inspire the youth there, sir. You may want to write that little speech down for future reference.”
“Get out, Bender. Just get out.”
Bender slowly walked home kicking a rock hoping the old man was out getting drunk somewhere and wouldn’t be home until later. He wasn’t worried about his mom; she’d been beaten down so much over the years she didn’t care about anything as long as his dad wasn’t beating on her.
When he saw the man sitting on the steps to his house he paused. There was something familiar about him, but Bender couldn’t place him. He knew he’d seen him before, but couldn’t remember.
“We need to have a talk son.”
“You’re not my dad.”
The man leaned back and crossed his ankles looking relaxed, but Jack knew he wasn’t. This man didn’t look like he ever let his guard down. “No, thank God for that. I’m here to help you.”
“Yeah, well I don’t want your fucking help.”
“Listen, you punk ass kid, do you want to end up like your old man? Nah, I can see from the look in your eyes you don’t. Well, I’m offering you a way out. A way you can hold onto that tough kid attitude while helping people.”
“Fuck them. They never helped me.”
“What do you think I’m doing? You sure as hell aren’t the first I’ve gotten out of here, and you won’t be the last, but you’d better listen up, boy, before it’s too late. This is your one shot at redemption. I suggest you take it.” He held out a card.
Bender stood there on shaking knees, thoughts going through his head. He wanted to escape the wrath of his father and the scum of the neighborhood. He knew if he stayed, he’d be dead within a year. Slowly, he reached out and grabbed the card, feeling deep down in his gut his whole life was about to change. Now, if it was for the better was yet to be seen.

What the Heart Wants (Soulmate Series #2)
by Kelli McCracken




Bound by destiny, can their love survive those that would tear them apart?

Dylan McBride thought he had it all when Heaven Lewis agreed to marry him. Yet the secrets surrounding them continue to build. Dylan’s father won’t accept his relationship with Heaven, but Dylan refuses to let his dad come between them. Even if it means giving up his life as a rock star.

His refusal brings a turn of events that may cost him Heaven’s life. The only person he can count on for help is Layne. While his best friend agrees to help, Dylan can tell Layne is keeping secrets of his own.

Among the chaos, Heaven is adjusting to her newfound abilities when she discovers they’re evolving. As if psychic powers aren’t enough to deal with, someone is making threats on her life. Threats that will unravel family secrets and put friendships to the test. All for What the Heart Needs.






“You’re lucky,” he said, his voice hitting that low, guttural tone that made her knees weak. “If we didn’t have people showing up in a couple hours, you and I wouldn’t leave this bedroom, today.” Leaning up on her toes, she brushed her lips against his, saying. “I’d say that makes me unlucky.” ~Heaven and Dylan, What the Heart Needs~

What the Heart Needs (Soulmate, #2)What the Heart Needs by Kelli McCracken

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What the Heart Needs picks up immediately where the first book ends. It’s been a couple of months since Heaven and Dylan officially met and they are spending every chance they get with each other to learn more about the bond they share.

“The more we give in to what the heart wants, the more we
get what the heart needs. My heart wanted you from the
first time I saw you. My heart needed you from the moment
we were born.”

As their love grows so does the momentum of those of those that want to break their bond. What the Heart Needs answers many questions left from the previous book, but those answered only bring out more questions. Secrets come out and Heaven and Dylan’s love is tested.

I was literally on the edge of my seat as the story went on. Half way through the book I couldn’t focus on anything else. Work…be damned. There was even a moment between Heaven and her sister,Faith, where I teared up with emotion. We see more of Layne and discover his true intentions toward Heaven.

As this story ended, I was left wanting more and rushed to begin the next book; What the Heart Takes. This is one of the BEST series I’ve read and I’m in absolute awe of Kelli McKracken’s writing. The stories are written with perfect description. For me as a reader, it was always difficult to visualize the scene written. That is not the case here. I can literally visual the characters’ movements as I read each word.

So much is comes to light in this book and I don’t want to give anything away. I can only say I LOVED it. Another 5 Stars for Kelli McKracken.

Here are a few of my most recent 5 Star Reads


Finally Heaven (Room 103, #4)Finally Heaven by D.H. Sidebottom

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s just so hard to say goodbye…

Man this one was tough. I fell in love with the Room 103 band mates from the moment I started Shocking Heaven. I selected Boss as my favorite when I couldn’t stop laughing at his humor in Thrilling Heaven. That man had me in stitches. Bulk…well since my sister pees on him at the mere mention of his name (just to be sure everyone knows he’s hers), I still thought he was an amazing character with an extremely emotional story in Denying Heaven.

But Romeo? His character was so carefree and casual in the background of their stories that when you get to his story, it was apparent that all his smiles and casual sex held so much pain and so many secrets. To finally see him and Zoe get their happy ending was nothing.

And that epilogue… I cried as the members said their goodbye and nearly peed my pants as Boss made his speech. I told you, that man is hilarious. You should get to know him.

Cheers to DH Sidebottom for sharing these amazing characters with us and for giving us unforgettable love stories.

One Dom to Love (The Doms of Her Life, #1)One Dom to Love by Shayla Black

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I fell in love with Jenna Jacobs’ work when I read her Doms of Genesis series so reading any work she’s connected with is an absolute treat. One Dom to Love was definitely up there as a love story I won’t forget. I was left with wanting more and needing to know what happens next for Hammer, Liam and of course sweet, sassy and loving Raine.

This story was very erotic as it give us a story of sweet Raine living at Shadows after being protected and cared for by the BDSM club owner, Hammer. His best friend Liam sees the affections Raine and Hammer feel for each other and tries to step in to get them to finally connect but his intentions, though well intended, went in a different direction when he finds himself falling for Raine.

The passion and sensual scenes between these characters were palpable and very steamy. These authors did an amazing job bringing these characters and this story to life. Not too dramatic with it’s plot and focusing on the character development and the interaction between each of them. My heart ached for Raine and the rejection she went through as well as the pain Hammer suffered when Liam stepped in to a role he refused to do. They were both in so much pain and the story is written so well that I, as the reader, felt it. Liam was the sweetest and most caring to do what he did to help Raine and to try to help his friend. He really had a big heart and put it on the line when he begins falling for Raine.

This was a great love triangle that I couldn’t get enough of.

Letting Go of Us (Anchored Hearts Vol. 3)Letting Go of Us by J.M. Witt

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The romance between Cassidy & James grew in intensity as each installment of this series was released. The hell Cassidy went through in Letting Go Of You was the start of a chaotic ride with James.

His issues and lack of desire to discuss them with her made it so difficult to for her to stay strong but it looks like it was all going to be worth it. Until anther plot twist had me screaming in frustration. Poor Cassidy!!

Her love of music was great in setting the mood for the story. The playlist of songs did an amazing job of expressing the the termoil she was going through and was great for me as the reader to feel everything with her. I cried for her. My heart hurt for her and I fought with her when James was being an ass.

Poor Paul. He was a great guy and I felt bad for him being stuck in the middle. I can’t wait to read his story in the next installment. I hope he gets his HEA.

An AMAZING read.

Judgement 8 (Subject Alpha, #1)Judgement 8 by D.H. Sidebottom

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t usually read romance from the paranormal/sci-fi variety, but I’m pleased that the rare occasions that I have I’ve been very pleased with what I’ve read.

I’m quite familiar with DH Sidebottom’s work and she is one of my favorite authors. Judgement 8 is so completely different from what she’s written before and this story just proves she can master any romance genre.

The storyline was very original and quite literally felt like I could have been watching a movie on the Sci-Fi channel. Though the scenes in this book between Elina and Reid were quite HOT and intense, it didn’t overpower the story. There was plenty of “meat” and content to give you a very rounded read.

The characters were great. Throughout the drama and action of what they were going through, they still managed to make me giggle or laugh out loud. The banter between Elina and Reid was quite entertaining. Elina was a very witty woman;outspoken, strong willed, passionate and extremely compassionate. She’s lived her life in environment that was anything but compassionate. She’d endured a lot of pain in suffering, but none of that broke her spirit.

A very entertaining read. This does end on a cliffy (I wasn’t expecting that) and I will MOST DEFINITELY be keeping my eye out for the next installment. I CANNOT wait to find out what happens next!!

deny the truth once it’s discovered, or will she give in to What the Heart









Kelli McCracken’s love affair with books
began long before she could read. She didn’t let anything stop her from
creating stories, even as a child.
That same passion still exists within her
today. She is an artist by nature, a curator of characters. Kelli
McCracken does her best to give each story and character great depth.
“It seems like all I do is write…and listen to
Layne. He’s constantly whispering something naughty in my ear, like being
dipped in chocolate. Now I want a Kit-Kat. Welcome to my zany life, where
#SanityIsOptional, romance is required, and liquor is most definitely quicker.
I love talking about my characters. Hope you like hearing about them.”
When she isn’t chasing kids, working on
crafts, or sneaking off with a bottle of wine, Kelli spends her time writing.
Of course, it can’t be all work and no play. Once
procrastination strikes,  you can usually find her hanging out on 
Facebook, Pinterest, or Spotify. Be sure to stop by and say
hi. She loves chatting with readers.

Title: Nobody Knows (Razes Hell Book 1)
Author: Kyra Lennon
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Najila Qamber Design
Photographer: Lindee Robinson Photography


It’s not easy being friends with rising rock stars – especially when you’re the glue that holds them together.

Razes Hell has taken off in the charts, and Ellie can’t believe her childhood friends, Drew and Jason Brooks, are on TV and drawing crowds after years spent playing in dodgy bars. From obscurity to overnight success, Ellie soon realises life in the public eye isn’t all it’s cracked up to be as dark secrets become headline news and old conflicts are re-ignited. When a fake feud meant to boost the band’s popularity threatens to rip the boys apart for real, Ellie finds herself torn – a position which only gets more uncomfortable when her loyalty to Jason collides with her blossoming relationship with Drew.

Nobody knows how deep their issues run; nobody but Ellie. With friendship, a music career and a new love on the line, can Ellie keep their tangled pasts from ruining their futures?



No Body Knows Teaser


What’s Ellie to do? Jason and Drew have been her best friends since the age of eight. But she gets stuck in the middle of the resentment the Brooks brothers have been holding on to for years.

These three were such wonderful characters and it was great to see how they each had such a strong relationship with each other. Jason and Ellie had an amazing friendship that gets tested time and again and Ellie proves her strength by remembering that friendship during the lows. The bond she has with Jason is so strong, her friendship and new romance with Drew has trouble solidifying because of the difficulty Ellie has in trying to keep them happy. There were parts where I put myself in her shoes and I would have just walked out of the room until those brothers got their issues dealt with but she loves them both so much she sticks to her guns to try and get them to find peace but occasionally it backfired.

I liked that this wasn’t just a rocker romance. The focus was solely on the characters more than the rocker lifestyle constantly in the background as seen in most rocker romance novels.

Towards the end, it got quite emotional. I even had to fight back a few tears. This was not just a great love story but a story about lasting friendships.

18+ erotic excerpt
Desire flared low in his stomach. He let it take him over. He knew his next kiss was searching, needy, hard. He grasped one of her breasts and kneaded, the softness drove him crazy. His cock, fully erect now, pushed at his pants. He sighed into her mouth. “I want you so much.” He relished the hard peak of her nipple through her T-shirt. He bent his head and sucked.
When she ran her fingers into his hair, he felt the pressure in them, and moved away. He could see her nipple now through the soft white fabric in the wet patch he made. He looked into her eyes. “I said I wouldn’t rush you next time, but it’s killing me already.”
Emily stood. She pulled her T-shirt off, followed by the skirt.
Chris reached out and grasped her hips, pulling her to his mouth as he leaned forward. He kissed her stomach, and slid his palms over her ass to cup her there with his fingertips pushed inside the lace of her panties.
She held his head as he kissed across her stomach to each hipbone where he nibbled.
Chris heard her sighs grow ragged. He liked her pretty panties, but he wanted them off her. He yanked them down her thighs, and calves, bending to thrust his tongue into the cleft of her pussy. It delighted him that she was shaved there.
Emily arched to his face.
The scent of her creaming pussy called to him. He let her go. The need to pull her down and fuck her hard was scary. It tore right into his wish not to rush her. His thoughts filled with pictures of holding her thighs apart and pounding his erection into her pussy. His cock leaked and his balls ached.
She stood before him naked.
He gazed up into her eyes.
“Take your pants off. If I don’t have you inside me soon…” The need in her voice soothed his fear.
Chris took his pants off. His cock bumped on his stomach muscles sending hot pre-cum streaking across them.
He stood to pull Emily into his arms and kiss her lips. He plunged a hand between her thighs. The wet welcome there sent spears of sensation right through his body. He was on fire with the need to bury his cock in her, but he pushed his fingers into her pussy to make sure he wouldn’t hurt her when he fucked her. Her folds swollen, her cream flowed on his fingers. The air was laden with the erotic perfume of sex. His urgency brought his kisses down her neck along the soft place in her shoulder and he sucked.

GENRE: New Adult

Add to Goodreads


Sometimes, the only way to go forward is to take a few, careful steps back.”

Never Ross is a broken soul who doesn’t need to be fixed.  There’s a monster inside of her, eating little bits of her everyday, and she can’t seem to stop it.  It makes her do things she doesn’t want to do, say things she doesn’t want to say.

She’s used to dating guys like Ty McCabe; he’s one of the dangerous ones, the ones with pasts that burn like fire and melt everything around them. But there’s something different about this soul with a sad smile and arms covered in butterfly tattoos, something that tantalizes Never’s shattered spirit.

When Ty and Never form a tentative, almost reluctant, friendship that opens the door on their dark sides and shows them what it’s like to live in the light, they’ll have to face the skeletons in their closets, fight back the blackness and see if two tortured souls desperate for a healing touch can connect into something beautiful.

Broken doesn’t always mean destroyed.

C.M. Stunich was raised under a cover of fog in the area known simply as Eureka, CA. A mysterious place, this strange, arboreal land nursed Caitlin’s (yes, that’s her name!) desire to write strange fiction novels about wicked monsters, magical trains, and Nemean Lions (Google it!). She currently enjoys drag queens, having too many cats, and tribal bellydance.

Always a fan of the indie scene and ‘sticking it to the man,’ Ms. Stunich decided to take the road less traveled and forgo the traditional publishing route. You can be assured though that she received several rejections as to ensure her proper place in the world of writers before taking up a friend’s offer to start a publishing company. Sarian Royal was born, and Ms. Stunich’s books slowly transformed from mere baking chocolate to full blown tortes with hand sculpted fondant flowers.

C.M. is a writer obsessed with delivering the very best and scours her mind on a regular basis to select the most unusual stories for the outside world.

Ms. Stunich can be reached via e-mail or by post and loves to hear from her readers. Ms. Stunich also wrote this biography and has no idea why she decided to refer to herself in the third person.

My name is Genevieve Clare, professional mourner, destined to spend my days donning a black suit and throwing myself on top of caskets for money. Sometimes I mixed it up and threw myself on top of a willing warm body instead. Finding the right warm body though, that was a different story.

Julie is a Southern California native, a fan of a really good story (preferably romance with a happily ever after), really good pie (preferably pumpkin) and copious amounts of coffee (preferably Folgers).

She has always enjoyed writing and at one time thought she could be a singer songwriter…the ‘writer’ part is the one that stuck.

Julie is obsessed with pi…the equation(and the food). She’s allergic to cats and cantaloupe and hates mushrooms…so if you ever want to give her a gift, those are out for sure. She currently lives with her own romance hero husband and two boys in Melbourne, Australia.

A damned dream…

He watches her every night, rehearsing alone in his theater, her beauty aglow in the gaslights. With every hour that passes, Marcus Stafford is more entranced with the passionate Gabriela Rozina, and the dream she refuses to give up. His obsession is dangerous and he knows it. She can never know who—or what—he is, and why he can never step nearer than the shadows.

But her heartbreak is his undoing. Sorrow is a currency he’s traded in for two hundred years.

A breathtaking stranger…

Gabriela is moved by the stranger with the silver eyes who emerges from the darkness yet brings brilliant light to her world. Soon, she wants something more from Marcus than his mentorship with her acting. She begs for his touch, his body and his heart—but more than anything, to share his dark secret by giving him her blood.

A doomed love?

As the night draws near of Gabriela’s most vital performance ever, she is in danger of never making it to the stage—unless Marcus fulfills her wish and shares his life force with her. But in the doing, he risks everything, including both their souls.






Had she expected something else?

He’s not there.

It was the same inner demon that delighted in tugging at her insecurities before auditions…and long ago, had heckled her each visitor’s day at the orphanage.

A voice she fought now with shaking fists.

The heckler persisted.

He told you to go away once. He meant it. You didn’t listen. He’s not there.


She secured her stance tighter. Blast it, she knew what she felt, despite the dark theatre answering her desperate gaze. Freezing fingers of sensation claimed her skin more boldly than they’d dared this morning. Her heartbeat pounded like a triple timpani with each passing second into the night. Worst of all, she couldn’t shed this breath-catching awareness…this super real sensation that he still watched her, followed her, haunted her.

She moved to the edge of the stage. Stopped when her toes jutted out into the darkand tried not to liken the view to the unreadable abyss of her senses.

“Coward!” she accused into the chasm. “Backing down from the challenge, now that I’ve figured out a little more than I should? Hiding in your precious shadows, Sir High and Mighty Theatre Owner? Enjoying the drama of the hopeless actress, going slowly insane?”

As she backed off the edge, she shook her head in slow-burning fury. “I hope you like tonight’s repertoire, Marcus. It’s the last you’ll get. I don’t play to ghosts.” She pivoted toward the wings. “Or thieves.”

As she marched across the stage, she refused to let the dry heat behind her eyes liquidate. She refused to let her shoulders sag or her step falter. She’d give in to her humiliation only after escaping those all-seeing silver eyes.

Wherever the bloody hell they were.

Two steps from the stage left wings, she gasped and skidded to a halt. Two black-clad, black-booted legs stepped into her path. Her journal and reticule hit the floorboards between those boots with a forceful thwack. They were tossed there from a long-fingered hand.

Gabriela’s stare connected that hand to an arm, the arm to an endlessly broad shoulder, encased in billowy black silk. Her sights continued up the cords of a taut neck, to the spiritual intensity of Marcus’s face.

If it were possible, the otherworldly force of him radiated even more potent impact tonight. He looked hewn of dark gold granite under the gas lights, his hair swept around his high forehead like onyx turned to velvet.

But most of all, he looked furious.

He glared at the purse and the journal, then back to her. “I am not a thief.”

Gaby didn’t pick up the items. Not yet. She nudged one foot forward, her reticule on one side, his boot on the other.

She raised her stare, issuing the same challenge to his eyes. “You took them without my permission. You stole them.”

“I borrowed them.”

“Borrowed?” She sliced out an incredulous laugh. “Oh, this is a new way to play the scene.”


“You mean to tell me you decided to borrow my reticule—”


“Planning a big evening out and didn’t have one of your own?”


“And my journal. That’s the worst of it, Marcus. Did you stop to think what you took from me—the record of my deepest thoughts and feelings? Did you consider asking before you violated my privacy, my life?”

For a long moment, he issued no reply. But with the slightest motion, he’d pressed his boot against her foot—beckoning her sights up to his again. She cursed the thousand butterflies in her belly that lifted wing along with her gaze.

“If I asked…where would your answer have lie?”

Gaby compressed her lips, letting silence stretch again.

“I rest my case.” He dropped his gaze. But not before Gabriela glimpsed a flash of silver light beneath his dark lashes—his surrender to a moment of such intense pain, his eyes looked as if they really did glow…

She shook her head. This was no time for such hallucinations. Blast it, he’d wronged her, not the other way around. She snatched her pity back from him, recognizing it for the dangerous emotion it was. But she held on to the anger.

“Well?” She locked her arms across her chest.

Marcus didn’t look up. “Well what?”

She slid her foot away from his. Suddenly, her voice didn’t come so strongly. “Well…did you read it?”

He considered her question for what felt like hours. Finally, he looked up again. Slowly leaned toward her, appearing like a great beast used to watching every step for fear it would crush something.


Damn him.

Damn him for saying it with such meaning, for looking penitent yet proud as he did. Again, as if he’d experienced every fear and feeling, every triumph and sorrow she’d expressed on those pages.


“That will not procure you an apology.” He towered closer. So mesmerizing. A fine wine in human form, dominating her senses, whether she liked it or not. “I am not sorry I did it.”

“Yes.” She snorted. “I know.”

“Your words are beautiful.”

“Stop it.”

“I memorized them.”

“You think that’s going to redeem you?”

“Sweeting, nothing can redeem me.”


The night held its breath around them.




About Author

Hi there. I’m Angel: book lover, writing addict, hopeless romantic, pop culture geek and avid shoe lover.

A bit about me…

I’ve been hooked on books since I was a kid but it got worse in my twenties, when I discovered romances–the hotter, the better. Growing up in Southern California, with lots of surfer manliness surrounded me, was certainly a good boost for reading about delicious alpha guys and the women who adore them. When I learned I had a knack for telling these stories too, I guess you could say I was doomed–though my path toward romance novelist took a few detours via a concert-reviewing gig for my college newspaper (free show tickets…backstage passes…that was a no-brainer), artist interviews for a Beverly Hills dance music mag, personal assistant work for a record producer, dance club disc jockey, and a lot of fun in the hospitality industry.

These days, I still live in California, and have found an amazing alpha guy of my own who was brave enough to marry me. We live on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with our beautiful daughter. I have the best life ever, and never forget to thank the Big Guy Upstairs for it, either.

That word holds so many meanings.

To be pulled down by gravity.
To drop to a lower position.
To experience defeat or ruin.
To pass into a particular state, condition, or situation.

Regardless, falling of any kind was against the rules. To my parents, falling meant failing. Failing is okay for anyone but me, Courtney Rivers, their only child with the brains to follow in my dad’s footsteps.
Just not the heart.
I’ve never wanted to be what was expected of me. I just wanted to be me. The girl who loves loud music, comic books, and Hans Solo. So I left Courtney in New Jersey with the high life I was never meant for and became Cory Rivers. The secret heiress who is anything but prim, and instead of following the rules, I make my own.

Sex, sticks, and quick money are all I’ve ever needed in life. Everyone knows the ‘L’ word doesn’t exist for me, Ryan Phillips, the playboy of Mobile, Alabama. It is a thing. A word. It is just that… an IT. That changes at some point, because one day, I realize that IT isn’t just a thing. For the first time in my life I need more.
I need her.
She’s stubborn, talented, and sexy, and the only person that believes in me. She makes me see that, when I do something, I put everything into it: sex, drums, even love. But I can also fuck up. Falling flat on my face with no one to count on, I have to depend on myself to win her back.

Show her that she’s worth falling for.
That IT’s worth falling for.

“Falling is exactly what you need in life.
But what happens when you fail the one you fall for?”
