Blurb


Enemies to
lovers…? No.
Forbidden
Love…? Definitely not us.
Second
Chance…? That one’s confusing…just like our relationship.
Soul
Mates…? I’m not sure I believe in that stuff. 
Fake
Relationship…? Nope. We’re blood, guts, and reality. 
Friends to
lovers…? At times... yes.

We’re two
different people on two different paths, looking for the same thing. The
reality of it all is that one of us needs to fix the broken pieces to mend a
hopeless mind and the other needs to view the alternate life that calls in
order to finally be able to accept what it really is that they want.

Who is
Nikki as a woman?
She is
determined, focused, business-oriented, and motivated.

Who is
Christopher as a man?
Well, he’s
a broken one, but he’s determined to fix the pieces.

Excerpt

I look at myself in the mirror and smile. I look hot as fuck. This dress,
well it’s not a dress but a scrap of strategically placed material. I’ve never
seen Sofia wear this dress before and I’m going to go out on a limb here and
say C would never allow her out of the house with it on. I’m guessing it was
worn, but only for a few minutes before it was lying on the floor at my
sister’s feet. 
I open the bathroom door to three sets of eyeballs bulging from the
sockets when I step into Sofia’s palatial master bedroom.
“Someone get me an industrial fan.” Sage waves his hand in front of his
face.
“You are so getting laid.” Sofia’s animated elation over her choice of a
dress cracks me up.
“Holy fuck, can I borrow that next? Luke would salivate over that
dress.” 
“Blondie, he salivates over you anyway. Peaches, you are a vision of
unadulterated sex. That dress is a shot of Viagra to any limp dick you pass.”
“Is it too much though?” I turn and look in Sofia’s hand carved mirror.
“No.” Sage shakes his head.
“Nope.” Jessica pops the P with exaggeration.
“Hell. No!” Sofia’s voice rises with each word.
“Peaches, too much will never be the case with that dress.”
I sit on the edge of my sister’s bed and slip Jessica’s heels over the
soles of my two-day old pedicure. I buckle the strap, wiggle my toes, and
stand, presenting myself to the three musketeers waiting to see the full
onslaught of this scarlet red, very revealing outfit. 
“Fuck, you’re gorgeous, peaches.”
“Stunning.” Jessica smiles. “I totally have to borrow that dress.”
“If you do, you better get it dry cleaned before bringing it back. I
don’t need Luke’s cum stains coming back with it,” Sofia dictates. “And you my
sister, are… Sexy. As. Fuck!”
“She’s got that right!” Sage’s eyes bulge with a jerk of his head and pursed
lips. “One more thing.” He hurries across the room, knowing exactly what he’s
looking for and exactly where it is. “She needs boob shimmer,” he says over his
shoulder, then walks back to me welding a big fluffy brush and a jar of pale
gold body shimmer. The brush finds my cleavage and collar bones before he lands
a big kiss on my cheek. “You are perfect, peaches.”
The four of us fumble down the stairs, me being the last in line. When I
hit the tile to the kitchen, the room falls silent. The only sound is a fierce
agonized noise thundering through the kitchen and then Colt wails with a hungry
cry breaking the tension when he sees his momma.
My gaze goes directly to where the noise came from. Chris is standing
there with his arms hanging at his sides. His face is a sheet of stone. I
swallow the tension rising in my throat, the knot forming a ball I can’t seem
to speak past. 
“Damnnnnn, sil.” 
I smile with a tension-filled twist of my lips.
“Who’s this guy she’s going out with?” Luke questions, looking at Caelan.
“I’m gonna have to vet his ass.”
“Already done,” the rumbled words thunder in a low, deep riptide of angry
breath from Chris.
Everyone’s head twists in his direction. “You?” Caelan searches his
brother’s face. 
Chris doesn’t answer. His focus is one hundred percent on me. A beat
passes, then the Chris everyone knows appears. I watch the lie of the man form
in his changing eyes and personality. The flicker of shutters slamming closed
before the storm claims him. He’s the shell of a man sealing the cracks he
almost let break open and crumble, but he quickly covers it up with his jokes.
The levity alleviating the heaviness in the room, but not in my mind or my
heart. And then… my heart shatters with his crude words. I know Chris. Chris
knows I know Chris, inside and out. Whatever comes out of his mouth next is to
cover for what he’s feeling. 
“Hey, make sure you practice sandboxing tonight, yea.” Everyone chuckles.
“You don’t need that pretty pussy of yours catching something before you let me
fuck you again.” 
The laughter extinguishes immediately.
My mouth falls open, to the point I think it becomes unhinged. 
“And from what I know, he’s a pretty decent guy,” he continues without
breaking his stride. “I just don’t know his dick size, but I guess we’ll know
by tomorrow, won’t we?” He finishes his crude sentence and opens the
refrigerator and grabs another beer.
Caelan starts to say something but I shake my head. “Let it go,” I mouth,
stepping forward and grabbing the clutch from Sofia’s fisted hand. I throw my
phone and gloss in it along with some tissues and take a few steps to the
bathroom that’s just off the kitchen. I take a deep breath and let his words
go. I give myself a once over and open the door just as angry voices are being
hushed.
“You’re a fucking asshole,” Caelan fumes.
The alarm goes off for the security system. All eyes turn to the CCTV in
the corner of the kitchen. A limo sits at the gate. Caelan hits the intercom
and tells him to come through after hitting the gate release button.
“I think it’s best if I meet him outside.” I smiled at everyone, not
feeling one bit of the joy stretched across my face. My stride across my
sister’s massive kitchen is quick. Murmurs of goodbyes are said. I wave over my
shoulder, not wanting to look back.
“Shit.” I hear the clash of glass breaking inside what sounded like the
recyclable trash can. “Nikki, wait up.” 
I keep walking, my eyes are focused on the security camera, watching how
far the limo has gotten down the driveway. The interior door to the mud room is
within reach. I grab the handle and push it open. Just before closing it, it’s
pushed open with force and closed with even more strength, but it doesn’t latch
and swings back open.
“I’m fucking sorry.” He twists my figure, jerking me back to look at him.
“It sounds like it. Have a good night, Chris.” I turn and take a step
away from him.
A puff of frustrated, released air hits my back. “I’m sorry, sunflower.”
Those are the words that stop me in my tracks. “Why?” I ask, turning back
to him, feeling the hurt of his words. 
“I don’t know.” A frustrated hand slides through his hair.
“Yes, you do. You wanted this. I didn’t. You did this. I just made it
easier for you, but you changed the path.”
“I’m not good enough for you.” He steps into me.
“You are. The sad and worst part is you don’t believe that you are.” I
solemnly gaze up into his regretful eyes.
He closes the door with a careless thud, then pushes me up against the
wall, caging me in with his long, lean body. He bends down and ghosts his lips
over mine. 
“Don’t go,” he pleads, breathing heavily. The slight edge of panic in his
voice.
“Tell me why?” I push.
“Because I don’t want you to.”
“That’s not good enough. Tell me why.”
I already know why.
“It has to be,” he growls with frustration.
“But it’s not.” I push at his chest. “Good night, Chris.” I duck under
his arm and make my way out the door to a waiting Jaxson who is being occupied
by Caelan. He must have known a train wreck was about to happen and cut Jaxson
off by going out the front door.

handfuls of women to see what their thoughts and feelings were. With
overwhelming encouragement and demands, she finished her second novel of the

AN
ALL-NEW STANDALONE FROM NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR JULIA KENT

I never
thought my perp walk would lead to true love.

Then again,
I never thought I’d be arrested on RICO charges and hauled away in zip ties on
camera for the world to see, minutes after closing the most amazing deal of my
career.

And all of
it in front of my biggest rival, billionaire wunderkind Ian McRory.

I am broke.

I am
disgraced.

I am alone.

I am a
sucker.

But the
worst part? I have to go back to my hometown and live in my bedroom filled with
relics from my childhood.

Lisa Frank
never made me so mad before.

Just when I
needed a rescue, I got one — in the form of help from my biggest rival.

He can’t
bring back my money.

He
certainly can’t bring back my reputation or my pride.

But there’s
one thing he can bring back to me.

A sense of
hope.

Maybe even
love.

Ian sees
something in me no one else does, and he’s relentless about making me see it,
too. As we grow closer, I’m starting to see that while my entire life used to
be a lie, the truth is staring me in the present — and it’s a truth I like
very, very much, hot eyes and gorgeous smile and all.

But I have
to be careful.

I can’t be
too —

That’s
right.

Hasty.

The final
book in the USA Today bestselling Do-Over Series (Fluffy, Perky, Feisty), as
Mallory's sister, Hastings "Hasty" Monahan gets her turn at a happily
ever after that starts off with an arrest.

Hers.

Excerpt



Ian keeps chasing me, though. Why? And why does the fact that he won't
let up thrill me?
That's the part I hate. The thrill. The zing of arousal that shoots
through me every time that jerkface–who isn't a jerk–does this. He's pursuing
me and I don't understand it, but I do like it.
More than I want to admit.
The fight inside me feels like layers of muscles in my abs are in a
tug-of-war. Ian McCrory represents everything I fought to achieve in my old
life. Self-made billionaire. Liked by everyone. Admired by even more.
Respected for his hardcore negotiating skills.
And droolingly handsome.
He was my nemesis. My enemy. The guy who sniped deals, and who I
sniped from. We were adversaries, but he flipped the script, didn't
he? Coming to my rescue. Aiding me in a time of need.
I don't want to need him.
And I especially don't need to want him.
I stare at the phone. Just as my finger goes to the Power button to turn
it off again, three dots appear.
One dinner. Indulge me?
I go into my contacts, and I block him.
He just proved me right.
Taking help from people means you're obligated.
And no matter how sweet the currency he's dangling, I don't like owing
him.
I don't like owing anyone.
Burke turned my entire life into one big debt.
But my body isn't available as collateral.
And neither is my heart.

Excerpt

I can’t stop thinking about Kingston—the man is a walking contradiction.

Most of the time, he's broody and mysterious, in a totally sexy way—like
catnip for the female population. But when he's with the guys outside of
school, he's laid back and even goofy sometimes. With Ainsley and me and hell,
even Belle, he's super-protective, and there are these moments where he's
incredibly thoughtful or kind. Regardless of which Kingston you're getting at
the time, there's always this underlying rage I don't think many people pick up
on. Or maybe they don't understand the extent of it.
I remember watching a video during my freshman year science class about
the Mount St. Helens eruption. The landscape was breathtaking, loved by outdoor
enthusiasts, or simply anyone searching for a peaceful place to spend their
day. The volcano sat quietly for over one hundred years, all the while,
pressure was building beneath the surface. There was sufficient evidence of its
impending reawakening, but the reports weren't taken seriously enough by the
general public. Tourists continued flocking to the area—some even evading
roadblocks and ignoring air restrictions—until the perfect combination of
events caused a cataclysmic explosion. The eruption was so powerful, it
literally blew the top off the mountain, killing everyone in the vicinity.
Kingston reminds me of that volcano. If you don’t look beyond his surface
beauty, if you ignore the warning signs, you’re putting yourself at risk. He’s
dangerous—perhaps even deadly—and I’d be a fool to forget that.

Excerpt

“Kylo,” he
called. I looked to him as he walked back to where he’d left his phone. Then he
had my eyes again. He put a knee to the bed, leaned over, and pressed his lips
to my shoulder.
“Night,” he
said, and looked up at me.
I cleared
my thick throat.
He’d kissed
my shoulder.
My skin.
“Yeah,
night.” I nodded. He grinned, straightened, and walked from the room.
What the
hell was that all about?
Why did he
do that?
This was
fucking weird. He made no sense. I scrubbed a hand over my face.
