NAKED OR DEAD
In a world of secrets and lies, these are the three key ingredients to one hell of a mess that Olivia can't seem to rectify.
She knows what she craves, what she needs… but it's too far from her grasp and her love for her husband holds her back. She has been devoted to her sick, desperate husband for what feels like her entire life.
She can't abandon him. Not when he needs her more than ever.
Especially not for someone so forbidden.
He’s rude, mean, and looks at me like he hates me.
And I’ve only just stepped into his house.
Spending a year of travelling through impoverished places, trying to help people, should make handling Sargent Wolf—yes that’s his name—a piece of cake.
But even Maddox can’t deny that his father is an absolute douche. I’m only here for six months maximum before I get my arse back on the road.
I’ll just have to stay out of his way, and never suggest that he let me draw him naked.
No matter how badly I want to.
If I’d known Maddox’s companion Pest was female, I’d never have agreed to let her stay.
The last woman to sleep in my house was my ex-wife. I can’t live with a woman again and deal with them spreading their things everywhere. Not to mention their scent, tampons, clothes, makeup, and weird reading material. She has to leave; even if it’s me who makes her.
If I must, I can suffer her presence for a few months for my son’s sake.
I’ve dealt with worse.
I just wish she’d wear a goddamn bra once in a while under her little white vests.
I’m a tits man and hers are completely off limits.
Raven and Travis sitting in a tree, doing things they shouldn’t be.
HA… yeah, right.
Raven hates her stepbrother with a passion, and she’s certain Travis returns the sentiment because he makes life at home with him hell.
He ruined her favorite T-shirt, damn it.
He’s a stepdork who plays weird board games with his dweebish buddies, and she’s a party-hard female who spends the majority of time with her equally party-hard girls. Travis excels at school, particularly science; Raven can’t remember the last time she did homework or attended a class without playing on her phone.
They couldn’t be more opposite if they tried.
So why does her heart skip a beat when he graces her with a rare smile?
Why does it race when he surprises her with an unexpected moment of kindness?
Living together is probably going to get messy.
Not that Raven cares because… drama.
Small town, small-minded people, small expectations, and big A-holes.
Lilith Deville is the new enigma at Lakeside Preparatory Academy, a prestigious high school by a river and not a lake, which makes sense, not. Already she hates it despite its beautiful landscape.
Between riding her dirt bike through the sacred lands of the natives, plotting against those she meets, and holding greasy truckers at gunpoint, Lilith makes no time for love or friendship. Forever the walking mystery (read misery) of her new home and school.
That is until Nokosi Locklear catches her eye with his arrogance and a hard, toned body that she’s certain she doesn’t want to climb.
Shoved up against a locker by him in her first week, she sets him in her wicked sights.
Life is only fun when you have somebody else’s pain to focus on. So long as you stay detached. Something Lilith will find is impossible to do when it comes to Nokosi. A guy with looks but no charm. Strength but no power. Love but no morals.
With a serial killer roaming the States, taking victims one by one, a past in Nokosi’s eyes that he tries to hide, and a mother that would rather work than keep her daughters happy, Lilith finds plenty of time to spare and plenty of things to keep herself occupied.
Note: This is your only trigger warning. Read at your own risk.
Rose Sinclair counts through life in sixes. It's how she gets by when she's not in the company of her best friend and Tourette's sufferer, Laurie, or focusing on her busy work schedule as the personal assistant and office manager for the extremely attractive and extremely married, Ezra Conti.
Everything has a place and Rose likes it that way. It must be that way.
But even her quirks aren't enough to keep her in her lane and away from temptation. No matter how hard she tries to fight a detour in her life's perfect navigation system.
She doesn't like-like her boss. Not one bit. He belongs with his wife, and Rose...
Rose belongs by his side.
Becoming His Mistress
New town, no friends, no love, new freedoms.
Mallory Newman—now Scandal Oaks—is dropped on the doorstep of total strangers after a year in Louisiana Institute, a mental hospital for the “deranged.”
Arrested in her first week she is treated like the town pariah because it’s her fault some thug cop tackled her to the ground.
She doesn’t know why she’s here; she doesn’t care why she’s here; she doesn’t know who the Oaks are. All she knows is her body and what it can do, and what people have made her do. When all she really wants to do is just dance until she dies.
That is until she’s forced to form a dance trio with two boys she despises. Presley Myers, the cop’s son, who has taken it upon himself to make her life hell, and Carter Denzell because when his friend hates, so does he, and of course their band of little sheep who follow behind them.
For Scandal Oaks, life sucks, but then, what’s new?
