Excerpt

 

“I’m going to remember this as the worst time in my entire life. The very worst.” She shook her head. “There is nothing I can do to change that. Girls my age are playing sports, going to dances and parties, kissing boys. And that’s never been me. I’ve had a full time job at the grove and a part time job at the Stop-N-Shop. I’ve done nothing over the last few years except work my ass off and watch my family fall apart. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse…now all this.” She waived around to the house and to me and let out an awkward laugh. She took another hit off the bowl, passing it back to me. Her coughing much less than it was on her first try.

“Ti, how old are you?” I asked, clearing my throat as I ventured into territory I knew I shouldn’t. She was a pistol, even if she was a sad one, but there was a wave of innocence about her that had me both feeling bad for her and salivating for a taste of her.

This is for her, not you. I told myself. It was only a partial lie.

“Seventeen,” She said, sniffling. “Eighteen soon.”

“You ever been kissed?” I asked, her eyes met mine. “And not a peck on the cheek or a brief smack of the lips, but a real fucking kiss? One that leaves you without air in you lungs and your thighs pressing together in search of more?” I said, my voice coming out deep and strained. My cock coming alive at the thought of tracing my tongue along her pump lips.

“Why?” She whispered, and as soon as the words left her mouth I knew there would be no coming back from what I was about to do.

I pushed off the fire pit and pulled her up off the chair, pressing her tits into my chest and my straining cock against her stomach. I tipped her chin up and looked into her confused emerald greens. She followed my thumb with her eyes as I traced her bottom lip. There were too many lines marring her face, questioning what it was I was up to. I knew she would try to pull away at any second, try to stop me. But it was too late for that.

I was beyond stopping.

Just one taste.

“Answer the question,” I pressed.

“No,” she said with a slight shake of her head, and before she could try to argue, I leaned down and pressed my lips to hers.

I was already going to hell.

Might as well enjoy the ride there.

Josie's review

 

5 stars

 

I want to put this out there before I start my review, T.M. Frazier is AMAZE-BALLS! I read King and Tyrant and did not think it was possible for me to love another book as much as I did those books, and I was wrong. Bear’s story surpassed my anticipation and my expectations. Bear not only won my heart but he stole it, and he’s not about to give it back. This author is an amazing writer. She beautifully crafted this story where love shines through in a world that is riddled with pain, grief, loss, grit and rage.

 

Lawless is Bear and Thia’s story. Bear made a promise to Thia when she was a young girl, and when things go south for her she calls in on that promise. Thia ends up on the steps of the MC thinking she would be saved by Bear. Little did she know Bear was gone and Chop, Bear’s dad, was going to use her to send him a message. Bear is a mess if you read Tyrant you know he walked away from the only life he knew, he chose his friend King over his brothers and has no regrets. Bear is lost, he is on the road drinking, getting high and screwing anything with a vagina, until he gets a call that will bring him face to face with his past.

 

Bear and Thia are beautifully tragic together. They have suffered a deep loss and both have experienced betrayal by a person who is supposed to love and protect them. There is no denying the chemistry and connection these two share. They have big problems with the MC and the reason Thia went to him for help. While Thia and Bear try to sort things out, secrets emerge and everything they both thought they knew was all lie.

 

I LOVE that we get some Preppy in this book and of course seeing all the other characters that we have fallen in love with and met along the way. I loved how the author gives us King and Bear’s back story on their friendship. You have got to read this book. If you haven’t started this series then you need to get on it. A MUST READ!

kingpinThe second scorching novel in the USA Today bestselling Cartel trilogy from the smash-hit author Lili St Germain.

They say love conquers all.

It’s a lie.

Five days a week, I dressed in smart business clothes. I painted my face, and went to work as an accountant. But nothing about my life was normal.

For eight years I had been the property of the Gypsy Brothers Motorcycle Club. I laundered their money so well they’d never let me leave. My only glimmer of light was the man I loved. The man who had saved me.

Dornan.

His love had been the only thing that kept the demons at bay. But he’d become so immersed in the cartel’s brutal business that I hardly knew him anymore.

Dornan had been my salvation, but he was also my undoing.

Would he pull me down into the darkness until he destroyed me? Could I save him?

Did I even want to?

EXCERPT

I recoiled as I felt her blood hit my cheek, the deafening roar of my gun something that was becoming far too familiar. Allie hit the dirt before I’d even blinked, the force of the bullet sending her straight onto her back.

Above the steady drum of the rain, I heard movement outside. Jesus. Was she still alive? I opened the door as quietly as I could and slipped out, pressing it shut behind me. The rain was brutal, and I could barely see in front of me. I circled around the back of the pickup, gun at the ready, my eyes searching for any movement as I rounded the corner of the truck and happened upon Allie. There was blood coming from her mouth, and she had one arm outstretched, reaching clumsily for her gun. In her dying moments, she didn’t look like a bitch anymore. She looked like a sad, lost little girl, and I silently cursed Murphy for pulling her into this hellish existence. For the first time, I realized that she was younger than me, just a young woman who fell in love with the wrong man. Don’t we all.

She saw me, and her hand reached for the gun more desperately. Before she could grab it and take a shot at me, I placed my bare foot on her wrist, pinning it to the ground.

She looked up at me, her eyes sad.

‘I thought he loved me,’ she choked.

I nodded, crouching beside her. ‘That’s the thing about men like Murphy,’ I said softly. ‘They’re not capable of love, Allie. They only know how to destroy.’

She seemed to soften, her eyes closing momentarily. Blinking back tears, she gazed up at me. ‘I don’t want to die,’ she whispered. ‘I didn’t know.’

I nodded sympathetically, pushing her hair back from her face.

Before she could do anything, I placed my hand over her mouth and squeezed her nose shut between my thumb and index finger. Shock and realization lit up in her eyes as she thrashed her head back and forth beneath my grip.

‘That’s the difference between you and me,’ I said to her, as she clawed at my hand and sucked against my palm for air. ‘I’m old enough to know better.

Sometimes you just have to let go of rock bottom, catch the bricks being thrown at you, and build your own foundation. Solid is built on trust, not lies and deceit, and sometimes you have to stop waiting for someone else to build it, and do it yourself.

If happiness is the end result, if it’s that single want that matters, if we had to through that to get here, I’d do it all over again. If it’s the love that matters, then why does it matter how we got there? We were the perfect storm of two kinds of crazy.

Suit (The Twin Duo #1)

 

Synopsis

 

When my sister, Isabella showed up, just ahead of a tropical storm, nostalgia and a need to reconnect took us on a ride…directly into the eye of a different kind of disaster. I woke from a coma unaware that I even had a twin, and married to a man with two little girls. Although I fell madly in love with the children that I didn’t remember, I didn’t feel like I belonged with Paxton Pierce. I couldn’t be who he wanted me to be no matter how hard I tried. But things aren’t always as they seem. I fought my own demons, trying not to be the submissive he required me to be, yet I craved it like a drug. I wanted him.

Once upon a time I was an identical twin.

And then I wasn’t.

Synopsis

I thought losing my memory was the worst thing in the world. Forgetting who you are, and where you came from was like driving on a road with only right turns. All leading in the same direction. A direction I wanted to avoid, a dark tunnel that I had to enter if I ever wanted answers.

Losing my memory wasn’t the worst thing in the world. Learning, who I was, and the secrets I had kept was way worse. The unbearable pull and the passion we shared, mixed with the past that I didn’t want to remember, created a whole new storm. The perfect storm of two kinds of crazy. Stupid little fish.

My name is Jettie Woodruff. I live in Ohio, but I don’t know why. I hate winter, and it’s right around the corner. I don’t know what genre I write in. People tell me I have my own category. I write whatever is coming to me at the moment. I probably have like, six different novels started, all waiting to be told. The one that gets to thirty thousand first is my next release. Slut will release probably mid-November, and then I have something I am going to try under a pin-name.

Some of my favorite things are, first and foremost my family, reading, writing, bike riding, hiking, BOOK SIGNINGS, my friends, and life!

I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I’m out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”

Kai Tyler: Stories about dangerous men and fierce love.

I love writing stories about forbidden men and relentless love, about gangsters with heart, antiheroes who do what they need to do to survive in a crazy world. These men commit to the lives they lead 100%—with heart, body and soul and when they fall in love you can be sure they bring the same level of passionate devotion to the people they love.

Reading books will always be my first love but I also love watching good action flicks. I live in good old sunny England, United Kingdom. It isn’t always sunny, but I love this quirky island of ours. *grins*

Predictable. Boring. Safe.

That’s what life is supposed to be like. As the rightful heir to Waterfront Shore, I would gladly refuse my inheritance. I don’t want the money. I sure don’t want to have anything to do with its dark past. Except for the letters of my deceased mother, I would be willing to cut losses and move on and give up my rich lifestyle. But my stepfather expects me to marry. And then there is my new fiancé.

My hot, fake fiancé.

Tall, handsome, mysterious.

That’s how Chase Wright is.

Unfortunately, he is not mine.

Unfortunately, too, the day I hired him, I signed an agreement.

 

When an innocent plan lands us engaged, none of us are prepared for the consequences. No one warned us that we could fall in love. Maybe The Agreement wasn’t such a good idea.

 

I should stay away from him and forget about our one night together.

 

Except he doesn’t want to….

Josie's review

 

4 stars

This book is not to be read as a standalone, this is the continuation of Chase and Laurie’s very complexed and unique relationship. Once again JC Reed and Jackie Steele collaborating together have treated readers with a very intense and drama filled story. The story is told in Laurie’s POV but we do get a brief look into Chase’s mind in the prologue and I have to tell you I need more. This is a quick read but the writing was so well done that I felt like there was no detail left out.

 

As we know, there is someone watching the couple waiting for the right time to strike, the question is who. After reading the letters her mother left, Laurie no longer wants to be the beneficiary to Waterfront Gardens. She wants no part of its dark past or the money. She agreed to a fake engagement but a fake marriage is something she is having trouble dealing with. They might have an agreement but as time goes on both of them become deeply affected by the other. Chase really stirs Laurie’s hormones. Laurie fights her feelings and needs throughout the book. She tries to keep her jealously in check. She also fights the need of wanting Chase as hers. We knew from the first book that something traumatic happened to Laurie in her past, and in this book we see some more of its deep seeded effects.

 

 

We see many different sides to Chase’s character in this book and it is difficult to get a true reading on him. I wasn’t sure about Chase, something about him had my alarms going off; the quick calls and his willingness to help Laurie have me questioning what his game truly is. Chase is an interesting, appealing, sexy, and challenging character. He knows he was hired to play the part of her fiancé but he can’t ignore the pull, need and sexual chemistry he experiences with Laurie. He tries to show signs of indifference with Laure, but I can see right through it. Laurie tests his patience and his control, and he wants to help her and protect her but at what price. Chase realizes that in order to get the upper hand, he is going to have to change the game and change it in a way where he will reap its benefits.

 

 

When Chase finally lays all his demands on the table will Laurie accept his proposal? Can Laurie keep their relationship as strictly professional? With the game changed and secrets are revealed, will the game change again? Is Chase hiding something truly dark about his true intentions with Laurie? I really enjoyed this story, there were so many revelations and secrets I wasn’t expecting. Definitely a book every fan of these authors will want to pick up.

One shy lost soul.

One silent lonely heart.

One love to save them both.

 

Life has never been easy for twenty-year-old Levi Carillo. The youngest of the Carillo boys, Levi is nothing like his older brothers. He isn’t dark in looks or intimidating to everyone he meets. In fact, he’s quite the opposite. Haunted by a crippling shyness and the tragic events of his past, Levi spends his days with his head buried in his books, or training hard for his college football team. Too timid to talk to girls, Levi stays as far away as possible and completely on his own… until he saves the life of a troubled pretty blonde, a troubled pretty blonde that might just be the exception to his rule.

 

Elsie Hall is homeless. Or at least that’s all anyone ever sees. Everyday is a fight for survival on the cold streets of Seattle, everyday a struggle to find food and keep warm. Alone in life—a life that’s dangerous and cruel—her will to keep going is an ever-losing battle. In her world of silence, Elsie has given up hope that her life will contain anything but constant struggle and pain… until the beautiful boy she has severely wronged comes to her rescue at precisely the right time.

 

New Adult novel—contains sexual situations and mature topics. Suited for ages 18 and up.

 

 

 

Excerpt

“Carillo. You got twenty more sprints, then you can hit the showers,” Coach shouted, as I took my place back on the field. Putting my head down, drawing myself down to focus, I got it done.

Twenty sprints later, I threw a wave to Jake and Ashton who were still hitting their sprints. I made my way inside. I always finished first. Football was my life. It was what I did best. It was the only constant I’d ever had; I could trust football, I could trust the routine.

It never let me down.

It never left.

My cleats tapped on the tile floor of the locker room as I toweled off sweat from my face. I hit the showers, and in less than five minutes under the boiling spray, with only a towel around my waist, I headed into the locker room. I entered the change area, just as a movement caught my eye, right in front of my station.

A girl. A petite, thin girl—scraggly long blond hair sticking out of a pulled up hood; dressed in dirty black jeans, chucks riddled with holes, and a scuffed black leather jacket.

I froze, startled by what the hell a girl was doing in here, in the football locker room. Then my eyes widened when I realized exactly what she was doing. Her left side was to me, her rail thin body showing me most of her back.

Her hands were in my bag.

Instinct kicked in and I stepped forward. “Hey!” I shouted. But the girl didn’t move. I shouted again, my heart beating fast. It seemed like it took her a minute to hear me. She froze, and flashing me a quick glimpse of her shocked dirty face hidden under her black hood, she pulled something to her chest and sprinted out of the locker room, then straight outside.

I stood rooted to the spot, completely shocked, until I remembered that my bag was wide open. I rushed forward and looked inside. At first I didn’t think anything had been taken, then I noticed my wallet was missing from the inside pocket. I began throwing my clothes and sports crap out onto the floor, searching the entire bag. But as I reached inside the hidden compartment, there was nothing.

Nothing.

She’d taken my wallet.

Great!

Standing straight, I ran my hands through my wet hair. My eyes darted around the room. I questioned how the hell she’d gotten in here? In a secure room?

I breathed out through my nose, trying like hell to calm down, when shards of ice sliced, like spears, down my spine. Every part of me stilled as a further realization kicked in. My wallet. My wallet not only contained all my cards and ID, but also the one thing that mattered the most to me—in my whole life.

The rosary.

 

 

 

Beth's Review

 

5 stars

 

Going into Sweet Soul, I must say I went in with a bit of skepticism, I fell in love with Austin’s story and really enjoyed Axel’s as well but would Levi’s be just as good, as amazing as the rest of the books in the series were I wasn’t really sure the author could pull out a fifth book that was just as amazing. After picking this one up, it didn’t take long for my skepticism to disappear.

 

Levi Carillo, is the shy sweet youngest Carillo Brother who has never had an easy life till now, but even then it’s still not easy as he struggles daily with the loss of his mother and his past. Like his older brother Austin, he plays football and he does it well. But Levi keeps to himself, head buried in his books and wants nothing to do with the girls, that is until he meets Elsie.   Like Levi, Elsie lost her mother when she was younger and life has never been easy for her.   She’s alone and homeless until Levi finds her very sick and helps her out. Instantly these two connect, it’s a connection that is so strong you can’t help but feel the emotions between them. Both Levi and Elsie struggle with their demons but as their feelings grow, they begin to help heal each other but can they make it work.

 

I fell in love with Tillie Cole’s writing the moment I picked Sweet Home. This author has a way of pulling you instantly in to her stories, making you feel so very connected to her characters and has you feeling every emotion they experience. Her writing is beautiful and her story telling is beyond amazing.   All of her books in this series has taken me such an amazing emotional roller coaster. She has created a phenomenal cast of characters that has left me loving everyone one and struggling to choose a favorite. Those Carillo brothers are hot, sexy and just absolutely perfect with all their imperfections.

 

Levi instantly stole my heart, I couldn’t help but have my heart break for that little boy who loved his mother so very much, the little boy who felt he was slowly forgetting his mother.   He truly was a sweet soul and my heart broke for him so many times to see the heartache and the baggage and guilt he constantly carried with him from his younger years.   He was truly broken but watching him be healed and become the man we could see he would be was such an amazing journey.

 

Like Levi, Elsie broke my heart with all that she had been through and all that she had suffered. She was so strong and I loved that as she and Levi strengthened their connection, it only further healed them as well as strengthening them individually. Both these characters were absolutely perfect, and the emotion and the bond they shared was truly phenomenal, you couldn’t help but feel it, feel their struggles and their heartache.  

            

Overall, this was another phenomenal 5 star read written by this author that has only further solidified for me that she is a definite one click author for me now.  This book was such an emotional rollercoaster that at times had me in tears with what these two had to endure during their very young lives. The journey the author took us on in this book and this whole series was heartbreaking but also so very beautiful and it truly warmed my heart to see these two lost souls find each other and begin to heal from their past. With each book I read by this author, I fall further in love with her writing, she just a way with creating such amazing stories that you can’t help but feel part of. This entire series is a fabulous series but I must say the books that focused on the Carillo brothers were A-MAH-ZING and were my absolute favorite part of the series, now deciding which Carillo brother was my favourite would be very difficult. So if you haven’t read any of these books, you must do so and ensure to read them in order, you won’t be sorry.

 

 

 

AUTHOR BIO

 

Tillie Cole Author PhotoAmazon & USA Today Best Selling Author, Tillie Cole, is a Northern girl through and through. She originates from a place called Teesside on that little but awesomely sunny (okay I exaggerate) Isle called Great Britain. She was brought up surrounded by her English rose mother — a farmer’s daughter, her crazy Scottish father, a savagely sarcastic sister and a multitude of rescue animals and horses.

 

Being a scary blend of Scottish and English, Tillie embraces both cultures; her English heritage through her love of HP sauce and freshly made Yorkshire Puddings, and her Scottish which is mostly demonstrated by her frighteningly foul-mouthed episodes of pure rage and her much loved dirty jokes.

 

Having been born and raised as a Teesside Smoggie, Tillie, at age nineteen, moved forty miles north to the ‘Toon’, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, where she attended Newcastle University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts honours degree in Religious Studies. She returned two years later to complete a Post-Graduate Certificate in Teaching High School Social Studies. Tillie, regards Newcastle to be a home from home and enjoyed the Newcastle Geordie way of life for seven ‘proper mint’ and ‘lush’ years.

 

One summers day, after finishing reading her thousandth book on her much loved and treasured Kindle, Tillie turned to her husband and declared, “D’you know, I have a great idea for a story. I could write a book.” Several months later, after repeating the same tired line at the close of another completed story, she was scolded by her husband to shut up talking about writing a novel and “just bloody do it!” For the first time in eleven years, Tillie actually took his advice (he is still trying to get over the shock) and immediately set off on a crazy journey, delving deep into her fertile imagination.

 

Tillie, ever since, has written from the heart. She combines her passion for anything camp and glittery with her love of humour and dark brooding men (most often muscled and tattooed – they’re her weakness!). She also has a serious side (believe it or not!) and loves to immerse herself in the complex study of World Religions, History and Cultural Studies and creates fantasy stories that enable her to thread serious issues and topics into her writing — yep, there’s more to this girl than profanity and sparkles!

 

After six years of teaching high school Social Studies and following her Professional Rugby Player husband around Europe, they have finally given up their nomadic way of life and settled in Calgary, Alberta where Tillie spends most of her days (and many a late night) lost in a writing euphoria or pursuing a dazzling career as a barrel-racing, tasselled-chap wearing, Stetson-sporting cowgirl… Ye-haw!

The New York Times Best Selling author Nashoda Rose is back with the much anticipated story of Kai and London in the Unyielding series.

Kai
There is nothing I care about.
No attachments.
No connections.
Outwardly, I’m a perfect gentleman.
Until my target sees my knife.
I fear nothing, not even death.
In my world, death is considered a privilege.
But my life comes with unbreakable cruel strings and
when I met her, I should’ve walked away.
I didn’t.
I was too selfish.
And that sealed her fate.
Because one week with me led her into the hands of ruin.

London
We all have unique layers that make up who we are.
What makes us vulnerable or strong.
What we fear and what excites us.
But peel back those layers and you’re left naked and exposed.
They did that to me.
Each piece was slowly stripped away then burned.
I merely existed.
But there was one layer they overlooked.
The most important of them all—the tie to one man.
The man responsible for me being this way.
The man who found me.
And the killer who would do anything to protect me.

Perfect Ruin is the dark erotic story of Kai and London.
Their beginning.
And the continuing story of Vault.

Must be read in order:
Perfect Chaos (Unyielding, #1) Deck and Georgie
Perfect Ruin (Unyielding, #2) Kai and London
Perfect Rage (Unyielding, #3) Connor’s story

Kim's Review

 

5 stars

 

When we first met Kai in the Tear Asunder series and then in Perfect Chaos I couldn’t wait to get my hands on his story. Even the parts we read about Raven aka London made me curious to learn more about her. Well I’m here to report that both their stories are incredibly fucked up but together they somehow made an unbelievable love story between an unlikely pair.

London’s mother died in a fire when she was younger so all she had was her father who she loves dearly. She is a beautiful girl with an aspiring future, until the day she officially meets Kai. One day while London was at her father’s lab she hides in a closet as a mysterious yet gorgeous stranger threatens her father. She thinks or hopes rather that he didn’t see her but when the mystery man ends up in her backseat, London now has to figure out a way to keep her and her father alive. She thinks offering herself to Kai for one week will help but clearly she doesn’t know Kai or the people he works for. London feels like she knows Kai from somewhere before but can’t place where or how. As the week wears on London realizes she may be falling for this dangerous, off limits man.

Kai had a shitty upbringing but it molded him into the killer he is today. He has been secretly keeping an eye on London for years. He can’t help the attraction he has for her so when London offers herself to him on a silver platter he takes it…simple as that. When Kai realizes London is catching feelings he knows he needs to leave and never look back. Nothing can ever come of them and if Vault finds out he knows she’ll be in serious danger. Of course Vault has eyes and ears everywhere and this is where the real story begins. London has been taken and now Kai needs to find her before its to late. The one thing you need to remember about Vault is that they don’t have to kill you to make you feel dead inside.

This story truly makes you believe you can find love in the ugliest places and that even in darkness there is light. What London endures throughout this story will break your heart, but then the parts you read with Kai help to mend it all over again.

OH and can I just say I love how Deck and his men intertwine in this story? Deck and Kai play well off each other and even give you a laugh or two. The end of this book just made me even more anxious for the next one! I would definitely recommend reading the Tear Asunder series and then Perfect Chaos before this book. Certain scenes will make more sense with the backstory first. As for me, Nashoda bring on Perfect Rage!!

Josie's review

 

4 stars

 

 

I have followed this series and have fell in love with the women and men in these stories. I jumped at the opportunity to read this 3rd, because you can’t go wrong with a Bella Jewel book. I love this series because they have some really tough female lead characters. Delaney is tough, she kicks ass and good at her job, a bodyguard.

 

I love Delaney’s character because although she is tough, she has a vulnerable side and lacks self-confidence. She is not afraid to show the men on her team that she can do any job that they can. It is not easy for a female to be on a team that has predominately males, but she can hold her own. She has to constantly fight to show the men around her that she is more than just a pretty face.


Jaxson comes off as a pompous jerk, cocky and a total male whore. He is rich, owns several chains of hotel and unfortunately while conquering the world he witnessed something and is in need of protection. When Delaney is added to his protection team, Jaxson really doesn’t make it easy for her. Jax, is about to be schooled in the art of NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A WOMAN.


OMG!! The chemistry between these two characters was crazy hot. The banter between the two was so funny almost like a form of foreplay. Just as the two start to discover each other, a threat comes to collect and lines are crossed. There is so much that goes on in this book there that this is never a dull moment. Danger, a slurry troll mole named Tori (seriously wanted to throat punch her), an uber asshole team member and some seriously hot scenes are some of the things you will find. This wasn’t my favorite book in the series but it definitely didn’t disappoint. Fans of this author and this series will definitely want to read this.

Synopsis

 

There’s a price to pay for living the fast life…

Gabriella Hernandez—known to her friends as Riel—almost wishes she could stay in prison. At least there she has steady meals, and a girlfriend who loves her. Even a cold cell is better than what’s waiting for her on the outside. The only people she looks forward to seeing in her normal life are her sister, Lizette, and her green-eyed best friend and former drug-running partner, Evan.

Drugs, danger, and a hot spark of romance…

Upon release, Riel has no choice but to go back to work for her brother-in-law, Isaias. This time, instead of running drugs, he forces her to work in his strip club where she gets a lousy ten percent of her tips. The daily dose of threats and coercion chains her to this place. And, if she makes a run for it, she’d be abandoning everyone she loves. With Isaias’ spies and henchmen everywhere, there’s nowhere to run.

A crooked cop, a setup, and hope for a real life…

Evan is able to smuggle her out of the city, but it isn’t long before Riel’s fears come true. After a bloody shootout with Isais’ men lands Evan at death’s door, it’s up to her to get them out of this deadly game, and into the quiet life they’ve always wanted. With the help of a crooked cop and the FBI, she concocts a plan. If it succeeds, Isaias goes to prison for life, and she and Evan get immunity from prosecution. If she fails, she may die—along with Evan, her sister, and countless others.

With eyes all over and the FBI involved, will Riel pull off the sting operation?
Or will they all go down in a blaze of drugs and gunfire?

 

 

Excerpt

 

His gave her a searching look, then brushed his lips against hers. “I know it’s not easy for you, being back.”

She raised her eyebrows. “You do?”

“I know how hard it was for you, working for Isaias. You never wanted to, he made you. You never said anything, but I could see it.” His jaw tightened. “I’d beat the fuck out of that guy if he and Maria wouldn’t have me killed for it.”

“Definitely not worth it,” Riel said, getting a jolt of fear. But it also felt good for him to say that. Did he really want to stand up for her?

A slow grin spread across his face, and he ran his fingers lightly along the curve of her waist. “I do have a way for you to get away from him, though.”

They gazed at each other. Her heart sped up. “What do you mean?”

“I recently got an offer from a guy I know named Mishmash.”

Her speeding heart stumbled, and she chewed the inside of her cheek. She had been hoping his plan wouldn’t involve more drug running, but she should have known. “I know him. The guy down in San Diego.”

“The very same. He says we can go work for him. A little more risk, maybe, because we’d have to cross the border, but it pays a lot better, and Isaias would never find us if we were down there. We could get new identities and everything so you don’t have that rap following you, and to hell with that probation crap.”

She took a deep breath and let it out. It would be nice to be with Evan. It would be really nice. But the thought of running drugs again made her feel dead inside. “I don’t know, Evan.” She looked up at him. “Do you really want to do this stuff for the rest of your life?”

He stroked her hair, gently working the tangles out with his fingers. “No. Not really. But…we could save up our money and retire somewhere where they’d never find us.” He kissed her, his hands sliding up to play with her breasts. She kissed him back, twining her legs with his, feeling a spark of hope. Did he really want to run off with her, get a house together? Or did he just need a partner in crime?
