dirty_amazon

I’m in love with a man who tried to kill me. At least that’s what they tell me . . .

Six weeks ago, paramedics found me unconscious in my own home. Beaten. Bruised. Hardly breathing. When I woke up, I couldn’t remember the last three years or anything about my life in Jackson Harbor. They tell me my fiancé, Colton McKinley, is on the run for what he did to me. They tell me I’m safer if I stay away.

I don’t care if my memories ever come back. I want nothing to do with those missing years . . . until a sexy stranger with angry eyes shows up on my doorstep and demands I stop ignoring him.

Levi Jackson is my fiancé’s best friend, but seeing him sparks something inside me. As the truth unravels in my mind, I know they’re wrong about Colton. My own secrets are far more dangerous than the man I was engaged to.

I return to Jackson Harbor to search for answers and find myself running from a faceless boogeyman and seeking refuge in Levi’s arms. And in his bed.

I can’t deny my feelings for Levi. But as the pile of lies between us grows, I realize that sometimes the truth can’t set us free. It may be the very thing that could destroy us.

Excerpt:

The man searches my face. “That’s why you won’t come home. You’re afraid of Colton.”

“I don’t want anything to do with that life.”

He exhales heavily and rolls his shoulders back, as if he’s trying to shake off a ghost. “That’s not fair to the rest of us. To everyone who loves you, everyone who was sick with worry when they put you into that coma. Not. Fucking. Fair.”

I shrug. “Maybe losing a child and almost dying has made me a little selfish.”

His gaze drifts down to my stomach, and I cover it with my hand without thinking. “I’m sorry about the baby.”

I nod, tears springing to my eyes. “Me too.” So sorry.

“I understand if you want to live here now, but don’t cut us out. We all lost something that night.”

“Did you?”

He narrows his eyes. “You think I didn’t care? That this was all some game to me, and losing you was nothing?”

I wrap my arms around my chest, as if the pressure might weaken this force pulling me toward him by the solar plexus, this inexplicable need to be closer and let him wrap me in his arms. “Losing me? When was I ever yours to lose?”

He jerks his gaze away from me, slides off his stool, and downs the rest of his beer. “Thanks. I guess that clears up where we stand after everything.”

I open my mouth to apologize but swallow the words and meet his steady gaze.

Then he backs away and grabs his bags off the bar. He pulls an envelope from his pocket and hands it to me. “I was going to leave this for you with the barista next door, but I guess I can save myself the trouble.”

“What is it?” I ask, staring at the crisp black calligraphy that reads Ellie Courdrey.

“An invitation to Ava and Jake’s wedding. Despite what you seem to think of me, I’m not fucking my future sister-in-law.”

“Their wedding?”

He nods. “They thought about canceling after everything, but . . .” He stares at me for a long beat. “They decided to put love first.”

That feels like a jab. At me? At them? I don’t know. “I don’t want to go back there.”

“Maybe it’s not always about what you want.” He shrugs as if it’s no different to him either way, but I can tell by the tension in his shoulders that it matters a lot.

He steps forward—too close—and I let him, closing my eyes at his scent. Then a flash.

He’s over me. The weight of him presses into my hips, his calloused hands holding my face, his fingers in my hair. “You’re sure?”

I nod. Slide my hands down his back and lift my hips. “Yes. Please.”

He searches my eyes. “No regrets.”

I hold on to the memory of this man, wanting to examine it, to figure out what it means, but I’m too distracted by his closeness in this moment. He’s big. Strong. Warm.

He lowers his mouth to my ear. “I never stopped loving you. Even when you told me to. Even when you chose him.” And then he walks away.

Review 2.png

5+ STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review

Love isn’t a strong enough word for how I feel about this book and in honesty, I’m not sure there is a word. So I guess, love is it. I loved every single second of this book. The twists, the turns, the truths, the lies, and the sex was so much more than I was expecting. I don’t know what I wanted for this book, but my expectations were blown out of the water. Lexi Ryan is a favorite of mine, party because she’s from my home state and partly because she’s an amazing author.

Everything about this book made me fall. I loved Ellie. She is one of the strongest heroines I have read in a long time. I feel like a say that a lot lately, but the truth is, Ellie is it for me. She’s brave, strong, courageous, and easy to love. I’ve not read a character with as much heart as her in a while. Ellie had just want I was looking for and needed all at the same time. Levi, god, this man deserves a medal for being an amazing friend and stand up guy. He is a true hero in my book. I loved him from the very beginning. And it was great watching him become the person he is in this book. He’s amazing and so caring. We can’t talk about Ellie and Levi without Colton. God, I wanted so much for Colton. I still do. I’m praying we get more from him in the future. He deserves the world. I can’t say enough wonderful things about these amazing characters. And I can’t wait for the next story.

Lexi Ryan hit a home run with this book. I’ve told you how much I love this book, now find out for yourself.

Country swagger, filthy mouth, and one big, huge…gun.
The wildest outlaw in Sugar County is about to get his dirty hands all over one lucky lady.
And this is one cowboy who knows how to hold on tight.
No one ever said robbing a drug kingpin was gonna to be easy. But for a rough and tumble outlaw like me, it should be a cakewalk.
That is, before I crash in locked and loaded to find the prettiest little firecracker this side of the Mississippi sticking a gun in my face.
She’s the good girl gone bad – the gorgeous, tempting little socialite with a shotgun. Problem is, we’re after the same money. Problem is, one look at that fiery red hair and those sweet curves that won’t quit, and I’m hooked like a fish on a line.
Problem is, we already slept together.
Yeah. Shit.
I know the rules, and I know a rough, filthy country boy like myself should stay away from a rich, sassy heiress like Chastity Huntington. But I’ve already had a taste of her sweet lips, and gotten a tease of her soft moans. And now? Well now I’m gonna make her mine.
We’re tied to each other – literally – and on the run from some very dangerous people. But lucky for her, I carry a big gun.
Lucky for her, I know how to hold on tight and ride all night.
Lucky for her, I’m never gonna let go.
Giddyup.

RELEASE BOOST: A Kiss to Tell by Willow Winters

Title: A Kiss to Tell
Author: Willow Winters
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: August 14, 2018
Blurb
I didn’t
need anyone to tell me, I knew he was forbidden with a single glance.
He was a
boy I should be afraid of and definitely a boy I should never want. No matter
how much neither of those statements were true.
From the
first time I saw him, Sebastian had a hard stare that pinned me in place. 
And, years later, it hasn’t softened.
We lived on
the same street, went to the same school, though he was a year ahead. 
Even so close, he was untouchable.
He was bad
news and I was the sad girl who didn’t belong.
One night
changed everything. 
We both had
secrets.  We both saw the pain in each other’s eyes. 
That gaze
that gave me chills, turned to a lust-filled haze that heated every inch of
me. 
But that
didn’t change who he was.  A man who would take everything from me.

The President of the United States has been assassinated.
Grace Coolidge is now a widow.

She will never forget the horror of that day.
Or the betrayal of those who were sworn to protect the president.

But she’ll also never forget John Marin, the Secret Service agent who carried her to safety and saved her sanity.
Now she is forced to accept protection in order to fulfill her public duties, and he is the only man she can trust to protect her.

After the President was assassinated on his watch, John sold everything he owned and left town. He wants no part of that life, and is perfectly content with good rum and willing women.

But when Grace tracks him down and begs him to protect her, he finds it hard to resist the beautiful, haunted woman. He knows there is more to this than leading her through crowds with his hand on her back. She is hiding something, and he will stop at nothing to get to the truth.

Whatever her past, she is a lady first, and he will protect her with his life, no matter the cost.

It was only two weeks, she said. But he knows better.
A lifetime wouldn’t be enough with this woman.

About the Author:

Jade Cary wrote elaborate fantasies in her head from the time she was a small child. The fantasies included strong men and strong, loving relationships. She discovered romance novels quite by accident, once she’d devoured everything by Stephen King and Joseph Wambaugh. Desperate for something new to read, she picked up The Other Side of Midnight by Sidney Sheldon. After that, she found Scruples, by Judith Krantz. A whole new world opened up, and she buried herself in everything these authors wrote. She was fascinated with how the stories were able to capture her and take her to another place. But, more than that, she paid attention to how the words, the writing, made her feel.

She discovered a talent for writing later in life, after careers were had and kids were moving about on their own. She falls in love on a daily basis with her characters, and hopes readers will do the same.

Her first novel, The Point of it All, is the story of two people brought together under extraordinary circumstances. An unapologetic alpha hero who will stop at nothing to keep the woman he loves safe, and a strong, intelligent heroine who finds his supercilious, high-handed ways trying at best, find each other as both fight for freedom, independence, and ultimately love.

A Southern California girl born and bred, her travels to exotic locales inspire rich storytelling, her husband inspires the romance, and her kids inspire the laughs. Jade lives in SoCal with her family.

After getting dumped, the last thing Trevor Hamilton wants is to take on his advisor’s niece as a new roommate. For starters she’s hot. Like sexy librarian hot. But he needs his advisor’s recommendation for a job after he graduates, so he’s going to keep his dirty little fantasies to himself… and stay far away from his sexy little roomie.
