Toying with Her, an all-new standalone from Prescott Lane is coming August 17th!!!

No one said finding love was easy, but when you invented the world’s best selling vibrator, it’s near impossible. Yep, that’s right. That little toy hidden in your bedside table is my brain child. It’s aptly named Woman on Top. And you know what they say . . . it’s lonely at the top.

So I’m headed home to my Southern roots. It’s supposed to be an extended Summer vacation — nothing more. But Rorke Weston has other plans for me. Plans that not only involve me being on top, but also underneath him.

It’s been said you never forget your first. For me, that’s definitely true. No night has ever lived up to the one I spent with Rorke.

He’s turned into quite a man. Tan from the Southern sun, and stubborn as the day is long. And there’s nothing sweeter than the swipe of his tongue.

Rorke wants his chance. The one we never had. But that was a long time ago. When I still believed in Prince Charming and Happily Ever Afters. Even ten years later, I feel a pull. And it’s not simply Rorke yanking down my panties.

Do second chances really happen? Or is my heart simply toying with me?

Excerpt:

 

Hammering the nail with one hard pound, I mutter, “Friends?”

That should be a cuss word, especially coming out of her full, pink lips. I toss the hammer aside, scanning the mostly-converted barn. Yep, I live in a barn. Well, not any barn. The barn where Sterling and I lost our virginity. I know just the spot. It’s the spot where my bed is now.

I didn’t plan it that way. In fact, I didn’t even really think about it until she showed up in town the other day. I came home, walked in, and realized I’ve designed this place around her. Crazy, but true. That woman has burned herself into the deepest parts of my soul. Deeper than even I realized. She was my first, a memory. I thought it was over. I thought we’d only ever get that one night. She had her life, and I had mine. I didn’t see this coming.

This old barn sits on the edge of my parents’ property. It sucks to be almost thirty and still living on my parents’ land. Technically, I’m not living at home, but sometimes it feels like it. Unfortunately, buying my own house on my teaching salary isn’t in the cards, so a few years ago, I started converting one of the old barns.

Every nail, every piece of wood in here has been touched by me. And it’s almost done. It’s wide open, designed that way mostly because it’s less work than putting up a bunch of walls. The only room with any privacy is the bathroom. I left the distressed rafters from the ceiling exposed and just refinished them. The original sliding barn doors have been replaced with new ones. Almost one whole wall houses my personal library. The only thing left to finish is the kitchen. The upper cabinets are in, but my only appliances are a refrigerator and microwave. So any real meals I eat come from the main house — my parents’ house. My plan is to use part of my summer vacation to finish it up.

I look over at the bed. My subconscious must have taken over with that decision. Sterling is etched into the fiber of this place. Maybe that’s the reason I haven’t ever brought a woman to see this place before? Who knows? The subconscious is a tricky bitch.

But the memories of that day and night are so vivid. It’s all flooding back now that she’s back.

I remember a buddy of mine had rushed me home my freshman year of college, making the two-and-a-half-hour drive from New Orleans in just under two. But I was too late. I wasn’t here when Levi took his last breath. Those few days are a blur. Everything is a blur until the moment I stood up at his funeral to speak; her green eyes were the only thing I saw, her whimpers the only ones I heard. I hadn’t expected her to be there. I hadn’t expected her to fly home from college to say goodbye to my brother, but she had. And I didn’t expect her to find me at my parents’ house after the funeral. I swear, there were hundreds of people there, and it was the loneliest day of my life. I had to get out of there and started walking. I’m not sure if it’s just me, but when I need to think, I tend to walk. That day, Sterling was by my side. We didn’t talk, roaming around the fields until we ended up at this old barn. It was the place that Levi and I escaped to. As little kids, we’d used it as a fort, a clubhouse. Later, it held our bikes and four wheelers.

I remember being embarrassed bringing Sterling inside. It was old and filled with our junk. The only place to even sit was an old, beat up sofa. We made good use of it, though.

I’ve never been as unprepared for something as I was that day. Unprepared to put my brother in the ground, unprepared to lose my virginity, unprepared to let her walk away.

I chuckle remembering exactly how unprepared I was when our naked bodies first touched. My brain thought “condom.” But I didn’t have one. My dick promised it’d pull out. But I had no idea the kind of willpower that would take. I swear to God, I had every intention of pulling out.

I thought for sure that she’d kill me, and quickly launched into the lamest apology in the history of the universe. Just thinking about it makes me cringe. I was never so thankful for anything in my whole life as when she kissed me to shut me up, whispering she was on the pill.

Some might think it’s a dick move to be banging a girl the day you bury your twin brother. But it wasn’t like that at all. It wasn’t cheap. I didn’t think of it as a one-night stand, even though technically it was. It’s impossible to explain. It was us clinging onto life, onto each other. Emily Brontë wrote, “Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” And after that night, our souls have been forever linked.

Every single second of that night is burned into my mind, my heart, my skin.

After that night, we stayed in touch for a long time — email, phone calls. But we were thousands of miles apart. And our paths never crossed again. If I was at home on break, she wasn’t. It just seemed like it wasn’t meant to be. She is the one that got away. We never got our chance.

Now she’s back, and she thinks we can be friends? I spent my entire childhood and teenage years being “friends” with her.

She wants to be friends? That’s fine. I’ll be her friend. But I’ll be damned if that’s all I am.

The Wicked Horse Vegas Series – Book 2

By Sawyer Bennett

Buy: Amazon

Jorinda Pearce thought she did everything right – graduated from college, married her long-time sweetheart, established a career. But what does she have to show for it now? A degree she doesn’t use, a job she hates, and an ex-husband that broke her heart.

Looking for a long overdue adventure, Jorie takes a walk on the wild side and attends a masquerade event at The Wicked Horse Vegas. It’s exactly the escape she’s looking for, and even better, she can explore anonymously. Drawn to the man masked in black leather with the body of a god, Jorie finds the greatest pleasures of her life at the hands of a stranger.

Walsh Brooks is the most sought after man in The Wicked Horse. Sex is nothing but a game to him and he’s the type that will always leave at the end of the night without looking back. Unfortunately for Walsh, there’s no way he can walk away from the mysterious green-eyed beauty behind the mask of sapphire feathers, because he knows exactly who she is.

Jorie is his best friend’s little sister and there’s not another woman in the world that’s more off limits.

Excerpt

Squaring my shoulders, I march into The Royale and head straight for the concierge desk. I haven’t been in this casino before. Hell, I haven’t been in hardly any of them. Sure, I’d only grown up about forty-five minutes away, but gambling and all-you-can-eat buffets held no interest to me.

From Micah bragging about his best friend over the years, I knew Walsh orchestrated the purchase of the land, then pulled together financing with two other partners to build this casino. It’s one of the most popular on the strip, boasting five-star dining, old-world elegance, and superior customer service. Again, all this from Micah, but honestly… I’m so proud of Walsh, too. We may have lost touch over the years, but I’ll never forget all the ways in which he acted as a big brother to me.

Ick.

Okay… that’s gross. Thinking of Walsh like a brother.

I scrub my mind clean of that thought and demand myself never to do that again.

Rather, I’ll never forget all the ways in which Walsh provided me friendship and support in my formative years.

Yes… much better.

“Can I help you?” a man behind the concierge desk asks with a genuine and friendly smile. Not snooty as I would expect in a fancy hotel, and I guess that goes to the superior customer service The Royale strives for.

“Yes… hi,” I say as I nervously tuck my hair behind my ears on both sides. “I need to see Mr. Brooks. How do I go about getting access to his apartment?”

Micah told me some time ago that Walsh lives here.

The concierge never loses his friendly smile, but a single eyebrow arches high at my temerity.

“Oh, gosh,” I stammer. “That came out stalkerish. Mr. Brooks… I mean, Walsh… and I are longtime friends. He used to babysit me.”

“Your name?” the man asks as he pulls up something on his computer.

“Jorie Pearce.”

After a moment of scanning, he looks up at me. “Your name isn’t on the approved list.”

“Well, he’s not exactly expecting me.”

“I’m sorry, Miss Pearce,” he says with true regret in his voice. “But our policy is strict. No one gets up to the private penthouse without their name on the list.”

I lean on the desk with one elbow and lower my voice. “Just out of curiosity… are there any women on that list?”

The eyebrow shoots up again.

“No, wait,” I say hastily as I hold my palms toward him in a silent plea to not process my last request either mentally or on the computer. “That’s totally stalkerish, and I didn’t mean that.”

“Miss Pearce,” the concierge says, now with a hint of annoyance. “Perhaps you’d like to leave a message? I can get it up to Mr. Brooks today and he can call you.”

“No, I need to see him now,” I tell him firmly. “And I swear it’s not to cook a rabbit in a pot on his stove. Can you please just call up to his apartment?”

“That’s not our policy—”

“Look,” I snap as I lean across the desk slightly. “I’m a lifelong friend of Walsh’s. My brother is his best friend. We lost touch for a few years, but we ran into each other last night. I really need to talk to him about something that happened last night, and I’m not leaving this hotel until you call up to his apartment.”

The eyebrow doesn’t arch but it does draw inward to meet its match on the other side as he considers what I just said.

“I swear to you,” and here I pause to look at his name tag, “Bentley. Please just call him. He won’t be mad.”

With a sigh, he relents and picks up the phone receiver, punching in a five-digit number. After a pause, he says, “Mr. Brooks… I’m very sorry to disturb you, sir, but there’s a Miss Jorie Pearce here to see you. She says she’s a longtime friend.”

I watch as Bentley listens, but I can’t gauge what’s being said as his face remains blank. Finally, he says, “Very good, sir.”

I take this to mean I’ll be getting an escort to the penthouse suite, but Bentley replaces the receiver and says, “I’m sorry, Miss Pearce. But Mr. Walsh told me to tell you he’s busy and can’t receive you right now.”

My eyes narrow at Bentley. “I don’t believe you. Call back and let me talk to him.”

“I assure you, I just talked to him and that’s what he said.”

“Call him back,” I order as I point to the phone.

“I can’t,” he says almost with a wail. “If I do, he’ll fire me.”

Okay, that hits home. I don’t want to get anyone in trouble, so I say, “Fine. Give me just a moment.”

I take a few steps away from the concierge desk and pull my iPhone out. I shoot off a quick text to Micah. What’s Walsh’s phone number?

I wait a few moments, but I know Micah is awake in San Francisco at this hour. His phone is always on, and he never ignores a text from me.

He responds with the number before I can even start to tap my foot with impatience, adding on, Why?

I hate the lie, but I write back, Came to Vegas for the day. Thought I’d see if he could meet up for lunch. Haven’t seen him in years.

Cool, he writes back. Tell him I said, “what’s up, douche?”

I roll my eyes as I text back, Real mature. Love ya. Later.

After I save the number to my contacts, I open a new text to Walsh. Let me up to see you or I’m going straight back to The Wicked Horse to satisfy some further curiosities I have.

I hit send and then walk back to the concierge desk. I merely lean one elbow on it and watch Bentley with a silent smile. The phone rings about ten seconds after that.

Bentley’s eyes fly to mine as he listens, and then says, “Yes, sir. Right away.”

When he replaces the receiver, he says, “I’m to show you to the penthouse elevator.”

“Thank you, Bentley,” I say brightly.

 

Michel’s Review

Sawyer Bennett takes the readers back to the Wicked Horse in Vegas for another sizzling hot sexy adventure where anything goes.

Casino owner Walsh Brooks enjoys his erotic nightly adventures at the Wicked Horse.  He loves the anonymity and freedom the club offers.  He doesn’t have to invest anything other than his wicked desires on any given night.  When the club puts on an exclusive masquerade party, he’s prepared a special adventure for the lady of his choice for this event.  When he selects the beautiful blue feathered lady he knows the night is going to be memorable.  What he didn’t realize was that it was going to be a life changing moment.  The lady of his choice in non other than Jorrie Pearce, a woman he’s known for years and his best friend’s little sister.  When he finds out who she is it’s a game changer.  He just banged his best friend’s little sister and insulted her beyond repair.  What is Jorrie doing in the Wicked Horse when she’s supposed to be happily married in California?  What on earth would possess her to enter a hedonistic place like the Wicked Horse?  He doesn’t want her there in the club but he also doesn’t quite want to let her go.  He’s at war with his own desires and conscience.

After a disasterous marriage, Jorrie has lost her self confidence as a desirable woman.  She’s trying to regain her sexuality one step at a time.  When her best friend suggest The Wicked Horse Club, she’s all for it.  She has complete control of her desires and sexuality. When she’s chosen as a special participant with the sexy hooded man in jeans and his special props, she’s beyond curious and a little too brave.  Little did she know the man was the boy from her teenage dreams.  He’s also her brother’s best friend.  After he discovers who she is, he doesn’t want her but he doesn’t want anyone else to have her.  She’s determined to take back control of her life no matter how much she’s falling in love with Walsh Brooks once again.

Walsh and Jorrie are at odds.  They both want different things in life.  Her brother is an obstacle that neither wants to remove from the picture.  Bad decisions are made.  Sultry romps in the bedroom make those choices even worse.  In the end one man will be groveling to keep the woman he loves by his side.  One woman will regain her confidence and take what she wants out of life.

Sawyer Bennett once again brought something more to the table other than an erotic adventure.  She created a story where an alpha man had to become worthy enough to hold onto a strong woman.  I loved it and can’t wait to see what happens next at the The Vegas Wicked Horse.

Release Blitz + Giveaway + 4.5-Star Review: Brutal Sin by Eden Summers

BRUTAL SIN
BY EDEN SUMMERS
VAULT OF SIN #3
RELEASE DAY
AUGUST 7, 2017

 

Falling in love will be brutal.


Bryan is ruthless, heartless, and more than a little proud of his notorious reputation, until his bad attitude threatens to strip him of the one place he can’t live without. His sanctuary. The Vault. The exclusive club is the only place he feels at home, and he’ll do whatever it takes to reclaim what is his. Even if it means asking for help from the woman who landed him in trouble in the first place.

Pamela may have become weak-kneed over Bryan’s talented hands once before, but this self-empowered widow isn’t stupid enough to want more from the sanctimonious ass. Nope. At least that’s what she tells herself before he turns up at her café, offering to refresh her memory on his skilled fingers and filthy words in exchange for a favor.

He needs her to set things straight in the Vault. She needs him to satisfy the cravings of fulfillment she’s been missing. It’s a match made in hedonistic heaven, until hostility turns to lust, and lust into passion, capturing them both in an emotional web neither one of them want to be ensnared in.

Warning: This is an exhibitionist’s playfield and a voyeur’s delight, but dominance always rules. Throw in teasing, torture, and a gag or two, and you’ve got yourself another night of debauchery within the carnal walls of the Vault of Sin.

Tracey’s Review
I have been waiting for Bryan ‘Brute’ Munro’s book since SHOT OF SIN, the first book in the The Vault series by author Eden Summers. Despite his nickname, and the ‘don’t mess with me’ aura that he exudes, I was sure that there was much, much more to him than met the eye, and, finally, in BRUTAL SIN, we get to see just what makes this man tick.

With both his partners happily paired off, Brute is the last man standing, as it were, and he has no plans to change that, ever. But he hadn’t counted on Pamela/Ella, one of the patrons from The Vault, to rock his world. Brute is a one-and-done kind of guy, but there’s just something about this woman that gets under his skin, and he does not like it one bit.

BRUTAL SIN is a page-turner, and nicely ties up this series. With plenty of Eden’s usual sizzle and steam, there’s also lots of heart, and from places that we wouldn’t have necessarily have expected. I just loved seeing Bryan get his turn at love, and really enjoyed the way that Eden wrapped things up. (NOTE: Eden, if you’re reading this, this is NOT to say that I wouldn’t be more than a little bit open to more time in The Vault…) Like the other books in this series, BRUTAL SIN is an easy 4.5-star read for me, and one I happily recommend for fans of romance with a bit of a twist. And, if you haven’t read the other books, add them to your TBR and enjoy the series as a whole.

Release Blitz + Review: Good Girl Gone BADD by Jasinda Wilder – BADD Brothers Series – Book 4

Good Girl Gone BADD

The Badd Brothers Series – Book 4

By Jasinda Wilder

Buy: Amazon

Synopsis

Evangeline du Maurier is the definition of a good girl. Attending Yale, raised with the best tutors and etiquette instructors, she’s expected to toe the family line and be a trophy wife for a future senator. But when this good girl takes a quick getaway to clear her head, she finds a whole lot more than she’d bargained for. She finds herself in the arms of a bad boy.

Baxter Badd.

Big, hard-drinking, and as rough and demanding in bed as he is out of it, Bax may be the baddest brother yet…

Michel’s Review

I can’t tell you what a relief it was to open Good Girl Gone Badd by Jasinda Wilder after reading her previous emotionally draining novel Long Way Home.  This new delightful novel, the latest addition to the BADD Brothers series, was light hearted, fun, and red hot sexy!  It was the sassy side of Jasinda shining throughout the pages with a whole lot of panty melting humor.  The BADD Brothers philosophies have become my new mantra… work hard, play hard, and love even harder.  Yup… I’m ready to hightail it to Ketichan, Alaska for some BADD life experiences.

Baxter “Basher” Badd is the in your face, brash brother.  He’s known for his over the top crudeness and unfiltered mouth.  He thrives on physical violence, heavy drinking, fast women, and unapologetic hookups.  On the surface he comes across as a neanderthal but what most don’t see is a sensitive, highly intelligent, driven man dedicated to his family.  His reputation in the underground fighting network as one of the deadliest fighters has left grown men shaking in their boots and women dropping their panties. It has his brothers rolling their eyes.  Nothing seems to shake him until he rescues a damsel in distress, a good girl with a whole lot of innocence and insatiable need to be bad.  Evangeline du Maurier is taking the Basher down one pelvic thrust at a time.

Eva (Evagaline) ran away from her privileged life for a bit of breathing room.  She ended up in Ketchikan, Alaska at an underground fight.  When she finds herself in a serious situation that is quickly heading into a rape scene, she’s rescued by by Bax.  Bax being the good guy he is takes her home to the Badd Bar & Grill for refuge.  There she meets the BADD clan in all their dirty mouthed, fun loving glory.  Their easy going manner is something she craves just a much as she craves her sexy knight in tarnished armor.  She has a few days of freedom at most and she intends to make every moment count.

Eva and Bax find their sexual escapades are more than fun and games.  For the first time they have found someone who really sees what is below the surface.  They find someone who sees their soul rather than all the wrappings that define their lives. Their time together is a race against the clock.  Their time together is going to change everything they thought they were and make them want something more.  It will be up to them (with a little push from seven meddling Badd brothers and three mouthy women) to define their destiny.  Bax “Basher” Badd is facing the fight of a lifetime.  Eva du Maurier has her own battles to win before she can pillage and plunder her Badd boy.

Once again Jasinda Wilder delivered another delightful story that has me researching trips to Alaska and searching FB hunting for a certain group page (read the book).  She also tantalized the readers with a teaser of what is next in the BADD world.  TWINS!  DOUBLE THE TROUBLE…DOUBLE THE PLEASURE!

SYNOPSIS:

Your wedding day is supposed to be the happiest day of your life, right? That’s what they say, at least. I went into that day hoping I’d get the happiest day of my life. What I got? The worst. I mean, you really can’t get any worse of a day without someone actually dying.

So…I may have gotten just a little drunk, and maybe just a tad impetuous…

And landed myself in a dive bar somewhere in Alaska, alone, still in my wedding dress, half-wasted and heart-broken.

***

Eight brothers, one bar.

Sounds like the beginning to a bad joke, yeah?

I kinda think so.

Wanna hear another joke? A girl walks into a bar, soaking wet and wearing a wedding dress.

I knew I shouldn’t have touched her. She was hammered, for one thing, and heartbroken for another. I’ve chased enough tail to know better. That kinda thing only leads to clinginess, and a clingy female is the last thing on this earth I need.

I got a bar needs running, and only me to run it—at least until my seven wayward brothers decide to show their asses up…

Then this chick walks in, fine as hell, wearing a soaked wedding dress that leaves little enough to the imagination—and I’ve got a hell of an imagination.

I knew I shouldn’t have touched her. Not so much as a finger, not even innocently.

BADD Brother Series – Book 2

By Jasinda Wilder

Release Date: January 20, 2017

Buy: Amazon / B & NITunes / Kobo / Google Play

Synopsis

I was a Sixty-Eight Whiskey—a combat medic. So when I hear someone shout “MEDIC!” training just kicks in. It’s automatic, immediate. I don’t think I even saw the guy whose leg I tended to, not really. All I saw was him. Zane Badd. His tuxedo fit him like he’d been sewn into it, and his eyes reflected the fury and the hardness of a combat veteran, but when he looked at me, he just…softened. By the time I had his brother patched, Zane and I were both covered in blood, and I knew I had to have him.

The trouble with Zane isn’t getting him, it’s keeping him.

And the trouble with me is, even if I could hold onto a man like Zane, I wouldn’t know what to do with him. It’s not in my nature, and if life has taught me anything, it’s to not trust anyone, least of all men like Zane. He’s a warrior through and through, hard, muscular, gorgeous, tenacious, and yet oddly tender toward me.

Experience and instincts are telling me to run from Zane Badd as fast as possible, but my heart and my body are telling me to stay, to hold on and not let go. Yeah, it’s a conflict as old as humanity itself, but it’s brand new for me.

*   *   *

Life as Navy SEAL doesn’t exactly prepare you for normality. Yeah, I can tend bar and goof off with my seven crazy brothers, but what do I do when the woman of my dreams—dreams I didn’t know I’d had until I saw her—explodes into my life like a frag grenade? I’m trained to attack, to win, to survive at any costs, and figuring out what to do about a woman like Amarantha Quinn will take every scrap of tenacity and courage I possess. Combat is easy, it turns out, in comparison to facing your own fears and scars.

And then sometimes, just when you think you’ve got it finally figured out, fate throws you a screwball and sends everything FUBAR.

Badd To The Bone

Add Brothers Series – Book 3

By Jasinda Wilder

Buy: Amazon  / B & N / IBooks / Kobo

Blurb

Brock Badd is everything except bad. He’s sexy, sweet, strong, and every other good thing I never thought I wanted in a man. I always thought I needed the real bad boys, the ones that screw you senseless and pull your hair and aren’t there to talk about it in the morning.

 

I’ve always been a one-night stand kind of girl, and sometimes I wouldn’t even stick around for a full night. Brock was supposed to be a one-night stand—that’s how it started out, at least. Only, what was supposed to be a fun one-time-only hookup with a hot local guy ended up with me discovering Brock’s potency six different ways by breakfast.

 

That was all it took. One night with Brock, and I was hooked. But hooked doesn’t mean ready for a relationship.

 

That’s what he wants. And deep down, I’m starting to fear that’s what I want too.

 

I’m just not sure I’m ready for it.

 

I mean, he’s the literal epitome of tall, dark, and handsome, plus he’s a pilot…with a six-pack and perfect hair and a smile to melt me from the inside out. How’s a girl supposed to resist that? I couldn’t. I can’t. I’ve tried, but I keep going back for more.

 

I’ve got it bad, real BADD.

100 Series – Book 3

By Lara Adrian

Synopsis

Love takes no prisoners…

Billionaire Dominic Baine stepped into Avery Ross’s life when it was at its lowest. Obsessed with the beautiful, struggling artist, Nick was determined to have her. What began as a scorching seduction soon burned out of control, exploding into a white-hot passion neither of them could deny.

Yet Nick and Avery are two damaged people, both haunted by dark secrets with the power to destroy them. And for Nick, the ugly past that shaped him cannot compare to the unforgivable deception that drives Avery from his arms, from his life. Now the man accustomed to having everything he desires must find a way to redeem himself to the only woman he has ever loved.

Avery Ross has known heartbreak. She has known betrayal and loss, but nothing like the pain that loving Dominic Baine has brought into her life. Reeling from the aftermath of his devastating revelation, instead of allowing despair to break her, she builds herself into something stronger—the fearless woman and artist Nick’s passion has taught her to be. Yet her heart is in pieces, and despite everything she has, the one thing she needs is the man whose possessive desires and consuming love holds the power to either save them both or shatter her forever…

Michel’s Review

For 100 Reasons by Lara Adrian is the emotional conclusion in the intensely erotic 100 Series.

The previous book, For 100 Nights, ended on a monumental cliffhanger where Dominic Baine’s compulsion was exposed and ended his relationship with Avery Ross.  Dominic treated his relationship like he treated all of his business dealings.  He found something he wanted to acquire and ruthlessly put a plan of action that would result in a complete takeover.  What Dominic didn’t realize is that people aren’t tangible things like businesses. They are unpredictable, highly emotional, and subject to change at any given moment.  He could argue his intentions were pure where Avery was concerned but the payoff was in his favor.  What he didn’t realize is that his actions would result in exposing all of his vulnerabilites and deeply buried secrets.  He also didn’t realize that his actions were motivated by the heart rather than his insatiable needs.  He walked into the relationship a confident, powerful man and was reduced to a broken man with the fragments of his soul spread out from New York to Miami.  In essence, he was a man who needed to be loved.  His soul recognized Avery the moment he laid eyes on her artwork.  His mind tried to take control by manipulating her life.  His heart bled the moment she took her life back.  The only thing he can do is bare his soul with complete honesty and beg for forgiveness.  He has to be willing to face his demons and become whole before he can fully give all of his heart.  That’s the only thing Avery wants from him.

Although the title indicates For 100 Reasons, there really is only one reason that matters…  LOVE.

Lara Adrian delivered an emotional and powerful conclusion that validated every word in this sensational series.

Struggling artist Avery Ross is barely scraping by. Bartending at a trendy New York City restaurant for an overbearing boss and two weeks away from losing her apartment to a condo developer, she’s desperate for a break. So when she’s offered a temporary housesitting job, she takes it.

Living at one of the poshest addresses in Manhattan is like entering a new world—one that catapults her into the orbit of billionaire Dominic Baine, the darkly handsome, arrogantly alpha resident of the building’s penthouse. What begins as a powerful attraction soon explodes into a white-hot passion neither can deny.

Yet as scorching as they need for each other is, Avery doesn’t expect Nick’s interest in her to last. Nor does she dare to dream that the desire she feels for this scarred, emotionally remote man could deepen into something real. For Avery has secrets of her own—and a past that could destroy her…and shatter everything she and Nick share.
