Pulled Under by Sarah Darlington

Synopsis:

man-child. noun.

: a grown man who is very immature, therefore considered a man-child

manwhore. noun.

: a promiscuous man who has no regard for his sexual partners or the emotional value of his relationships

Rhett Morgan couldn’t have been more wrong for me. The guy drank beer in the shower, for crying out loud. He had no prospects for the future, had slept with half the women in our beach town of Kill Devil Hills, and had no desire to change his manwhore ways.

And when Ben Turner, the guy I had loved from afar for the past four years, died and I couldn’t get over his death, I desperately needed a distraction. A distraction like Rhett. So I used him for a one-night stand. Because, after all, that’s the only thing a guy like Rhett is good for…right?

***New Adult Romance. This novel is the third book in the Kill Devil Hills series, however it can be read as a standalone. Recommended for 18+

Reviews by Tanya R, Shannon P, Lita T.:

 Tanya R’s Review:   4.5   ★★★★.5                                                                                                                                                                                                       You need to read Kill Devil Hills and Changing Tides before you read Pulled Under.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  I really enjoyed this book and I read it in less than a day.   Goodreads says that there are only about 131 pages so it is a fairly fast read. This is Sydney Francesca Michaels & Rhett Morgan’s story.  I love that Rhett is a “man-whore”. He is even remembered in High School by some of the teachers.  He is a legend in promiscuity.  I think that there are many men if they could be promiscuous they would be.Sydney thought she would use Rhett and I say “what is good for the goose is good for the gander as the saying goes”.  Although, it didn’t work out that way.  And, the story continues from there.   I can’t say more because I don’t do spoilers.  I did get my HEA.  Well sort of Pulled Under left off where you know there will be another book and I can’t wait to read more!I received a complimentary copy of Pulled Under by Sarah Darlington for an honest review and I give Pulled Under 4.5 stars and I am looking forward to the next book.                                                                                                                           Shannon P’s Review:   ★★★★                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Do you remember the guy that everyone warned you against, saying he was a man-whore and player?  I think we all remember THAT guy.  That’s Rhett Morgan.  He’s good looking, funny, charming, oozes sex appeal, and he knows it.  But let’s be honest, how many of us were able to actually resist that guy?  No matter how fleeting we knew it would be, we still wanted a chance to play the game.  Always hopeful to come out as the winner.  Sydney is your typical good girl, but she is able to do what others girls haven’t been able to.  She plays the player, and she does it well.  So what happens when it’s no longer a game and real feelings are involved?  Do you allow yourself to get pulled under just for the chance at the bigger win…love? Pulled Under is the next installment in the Kill Devil Hills series by Sarah Darlington.  This is the story of Rhett and Sydney and the timeline runs parallel to the previous two books which I really enjoyed.  I have to say that this one is my favorite in the series so far.  I could relate to these two characters more, and they made me laugh at times which is always a plus for me.  The chemistry between the two of them was off the charts and well written.

I give 4 stars to Pulled Under and I can’t wait to read more from Sarah Darlington.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Lita T’s Review:  ★★★★                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Pulled Under (Kill Devil Hills, #3) by Sarah Darlington. Rhett has a reputation and not a very good one. We know Rhett from the previous books. This is his and Sydney’s story. Sydney has had a crush on Ben for years. When she was 16 she walks in on Ben in the gym having sex with his girlfriend. Devastated she finds herself being consoled by the town manhore Rhett, who makes her feel special by being her first kiss. He gives her a note that says to come back to see him when she in no longer jail bait. At 18 she seeks Rhett out after Ben’s death and funeral. Their story is told while it intersects with the last book Changing Tides. We get to see what happened from their perspective plus their own journey. A real good continuation of the story. All the regular cast of characters are mention in the book. Going back to scenes from the last book was like visiting a place you enjoyed but hadn’t been in a while. I liked both Rhett and Sydney and their journey to each other. I also liked Rhett and his journey to becoming the person he has wanted to be and to have a more fulfilling life. I was disappointed when the book ended and I look forward to the next book which I hope gives us more of Rhett and Sydney. I give their story 4 stars

Excerpt

 

He moved behind her. His hand brushed the side of her neck, his fingers playing with one of her blond curls. “You have beautiful hair.”

Her lids fluttered shut. “Th-Thank you.”

“Have you ever been tied up? Bound during sex?”

“No,” she whispered. She couldn’t speak any louder.

His cheek’s stubble rubbed against her neck. “Never had a lover pull your hair or bite you or spank you with the back of his hand?”

Her pussy quivered, liquid desire dampening her panties. Was it possible to climax simply from listening to his voice?

“Do you fantasize about it? Tell me the truth. I’m not going to judge you. You’re always safe with me.”

Safe? She was two seconds away from forgetting she had a boyfriend. To regain control, she broke from her submissive position and turned. “Who hasn’t fantasized about it?”

He frowned. “When we are in a scene, you will refer to me as ‘Jax.’ Understood?”

The disappointment on his face sent a sharp pang in her chest. “Yes, Jax.”

He moved closer. Close enough to feel the erection hidden by his jeans. “What is Kate short for? Katherine? Kathleen?”

“Katerina,” she answered without thinking. No one in Detroit knew her as anything other than Kate since she’d legally changed it at eighteen. How had he made her forget to lie?

“Like you, beautiful and unique. When I use it, you’ll know we’re in a scene.” She nodded, unable to speak. He cradled her head in his hands. “Now tell me the truth. Do you fantasize about a man taking control over you sexually?”

She couldn’t look away from his brown eyes. Couldn’t resist answering. “Yes.”

He arched a brow. “Yes, who?”

“Yes, Jax.”

“Have you ever used nipple clamps?”

They tingled at the suggestion. “No, Jax.”

“A vibrator?”

The lawyer in her wanted to challenge the relevance of these questions, but like she was under his spell, she felt compelled to answer. “Yes, Jax.”

“What kind?”

Kind? Was he kidding? “I don’t understand.”

“You are an innocent, aren’t you? Clitoral, vaginal, anal, dual?”

Dual? Her pussy throbbed. She’d rub her thighs together if it wouldn’t clue him in as to how much his questions aroused her. It had been a long time since she’d been an innocent, but these questions made her feel like one. “Um . . . It’s just your average purple vibrator.” She added teasingly, “It’s shaped like a Popsicle . . . Jax.”

“I like grape Popsicles.” He licked his lips. Was he imagining its taste? Or hers? “Have you ever been handcuffed?”

A memory sparked and her chest tightened. The phantom sensation of steel pinched her wrists. She tried breathing through her nose like Nick had suggested at the police station. “Not for sexual purposes.”

“Why then?”

She tried to pull away, but his hands held her firm in his grasp. “I don’t . . . I don’t talk about that.”

Soothing her, he drifted the back of his hand over her cheek. “It’s all right. You don’t have to tell me . . . yet.”

Series: Heartstrings #3

Author: Felicia Lynn

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 Release Date: September 1, 2015

Blurb

 

Love comes easy to some. It came easy to me. Loving him was never an issue. Appreciating him was as easy as breathing. Years of living a life of what others viewed as perfection gave me the security I thought was most valuable.

My marriage to Drake is symbolic of what others fight for, yet living in the glass house of perfection is the biggest challenge of my life. Life isn’t always what it seems. People change. Everyone has demons they fight and fighting them in secret to avoid letting others down takes its toll.

Love came easy but maintaining it is a whole different game. I thought the happily ever after would be the end of the story. That wasn’t the case. There’s so much more. It’s only so long before the glass house of perfection is clouded with buried secrets.

Can we overcome this and get back to a place of true happiness, or will I always feel like I’m perfecting my acting skills to save face? Can I ever find the ending to this fairy tale life I wanted so desperately?

Excerpt

 

“So, what are we doing today?” As much as I love and want to have this conversation. There’s absolutely NO WAY I can do it with her on my lap. My cock is getting harder by the second.

“Babe, don’t take this the wrong way. I fucking love you sitting on my lap like this but it’s been a long time since your little bit of happiness has been near my boys, and if you don’t get off me, I won’t be responsible for what happens. Long showers only help so much, you know what I mean?” Her cheeks turn pink and she looks down at her lap where she’s sitting noticing my very ready cock, rising between us.

She laughs. “Oh…morning wood!” she stutters out, making fun of me. I grab her, flipping her over onto her back pinning her beneath me.

“No, not morning wood, babe. I’m not twelve. This is thirty –two year old, haven’t had my cock inside my wife in over two months wood.” I press myself onto her body showing her how hard I am and it gets her attention quickly. She blinks quickly waiting to see my next move, but I promised myself I’d let her be the one to make the first move, when she’s ready. So I know I need to get some space between us. “Now, you stay here, where you’re safe from my ravishing and I’ll be right back.”

I run off to the bathroom, closing the door to prevent myself from sneaking a peek at my near naked wife lying in bed after I pinned her, ready to fuck her into tomorrow. Shit. Get yourself together, asshole. I walk over to the sink splashing cold water on my face and take a few deep breaths while trying to think of anything else. I grab my cock and it’s still rock solid. I don’t have time to jump in the shower and jack off, so my only other solution is to go back out there and deal with it. It’s not like it won’t get hard again anyways. Seeing her lying there.

I walk back to the bedroom attempting to disguise the damn elephant in the room, while in my head I’m doing very dirty things to her. She watches me as I walk back into the room, still smiling, clearly attempting to mask her laughter. I sit on the bed, leaving a vast amount of space between us.

DISCLAIMER!

If you’re unable to suspend disbelief and escape to the Rockstar Land of Fiction, then this book probably isn’t for you.

As with all the Rockstar books, this book contains mature content and is inappropriate for persons under 18 years of age.

This story contains grief, loss, sadness, darkness, light, happiness, angst, swearing, explicit sex, graphic violence, new beginnings, and soulmates.

I recommend listening to the playlist whenever possible to get the full effect of the story. You may need tissues.

Jesse Kingston, lead singer for Falling Down, is a tall, dark, and gorgeous temptation I don’t want to resist.

I’m going to ignore all the warning signs and do what I normally wouldn’t—I’m going to indulge my fantasies and give this sexy rocker what he wants and something he won’t soon forget—me.

Will our time together end up changing this bad boy? Or will it end up changing me?

 Tanya’s Review: 4.5 stars                                                                        Wow! I just got finished reading The Prince of Punk Rock and I really enjoyed this very HOT read by Jenna Galicki. If you decide that you would like to read this book be warned there is some very HOT male on male action. Tommy Blade is married to Jessie and he is bisexual. He finds that he has fallen in love with the lead singer Angel Garcia in the Immortal Angel band. Jessie has known that Tommie was bi and she wants to keep her man so she lets Angel in their marriage and finds she is falling in love with Angel. But, Angel is gay and really wants no part of Jessie sexually although, they do fool around a bit. I do feel that Jessie has to keep making concessions in her marriage because she doesn’t want to lose Tommy and I hope that she actually becomes a stronger person in the next book. That is enough of the story telling because I don’t do spoilers but, you should get the drift.I really liked the story and lord knows The Prince of Punk Rock is a VERY HOT read! I had to fan myself a few times because it is very steamy! The book ends on a little cliffie (not a major one) Fortunately for me I am ready to get started reading book 2 in the Radical Rock Stars Series and it is out and ready for me to start. I received a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review and I give The Prince of Punk Rock 4.5 stars. Now it is time for me to start reading “Between A Rock and A Hard Place (Radical Rock Stars Book 2).                                 Nikki K’s 4.5 Star Review                                                                             The Prince of Punk Rock tells a story of unconventional love, jealousy, and friendship. Sometimes being in love with someone means loving them and trusting them enough to allow someone else to share their heart and your bed. Jesse sees that Tommy loves her, but she also sees he needs more. 

Never wanting to label Tommy’s sexual proclivities, Jesse suggests bringing in a third to feed Tommy’s hunger. Not until Tommy joins the band Immortal Angel, do they realize his true nature is bisexual. Joining this Punk Rock band fills more than Tommy’s musical soul, it fills the empty part of his heart. The part that only Angel can fill. 

As a lover of both Rocker Romance and M/M, I was hooked by this book. Author Jenna Galicki has written a sexy, yet difficult story. The emotions, this book elicit run the gamut from lust to hate. More than once I was moved to tears by the turmoil ever present in the lives of this open-minded trio.

I really enjoyed The Price of Punk Rock and the underlying theme of love, trust, and tolerance. I rate this book a 4.5.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review

Theresa’s Review: 3.5 Stars                                                                          Tommy is in a band. Tommy is bisexual, and his wife Jessi allows him to enjoy other men. Her rule is the encounters can only be one-night stands. Only she can have his heart. This arrangement seems to work for them, and it’s their secret. Through certain circumstances, Angel Garcia enters their lives, and nothing is the same. Tommy is immediately attracted to Angel, and the feeling is mutual. Jessi sees this isn’t like Tommy’s usual hook-ups. She sees Angel as a threat to their marriage, and is not happy about him being around. Until she finds herself falling for the loud and proud rocker.

A marriage with two people is tough enough, add a third, and it’s even tougher. Through all the ups and downs, these three people discover things about themselves and each other. Maybe they were meant to be together. I really enjoy reading M/M books, and this one was definitely different. I liked the rocker storyline. And the sex was really, really hot!

The Prince of Punk Rock is the first book in the Radical Rock Stars series.

I received this ARC for an honest review, and I give it 3.5 stars.                                                                                                                                       Lita’s Review: 3.0 stars                                                                                            The Prince of Punk Rock (Radical Rock Star #1) by Jenna Galicki

Book one introduces the readers to Tommy Blade and his wife Jessi. Tommy is a gifted guitarist and is able to fulfill his dream of playing in a band due to wife. Jessi is the rock of the family and has done everything she can to make Tommy’s dream come true. She is his biggest cheerleader so much so she is the only one with a job and even quit fashion school in her last semester. Jessi is the only woman he has ever been with and loves her dearly, however Tommy likes sleeping with men.  When a new band is looking for a new guitarist Tommy ends up playing for Immortal Angels. The front man for the band is charismatic Angel Garcia and he is openly gay. Angel has an eye for Tommy and their chemistry on stage is something to behold. They both feel the electricity between each other and they definitely want to explore their relationship. Because Jessi loves Tommy so much she has given her blessings to bring Angel not only into their bed but their family. This is their story. It is a strange and emotionally taxing relationship considering Jessi loves Tommy with all her heart and likes Angel physically, Tommy loves both Jessi and Angel physically and emotionally and because he is truly gay he loves Tommy to the utmost but Jessi physically he cannot stand the touch of her but loves her emotionally. This is their struggle especially for Tommy who is stuck in the middle. I can say I struggle with what Jessi was willing to endure to make Tommy happy. Definitely could not get next to what she put up with but I can say the author’s graphic scenes between the 3 of them was something. I give this story 3 stars.

 Tanya’s Review: 4.5 stars                                                                              Let me just say I am really enjoying reading the Radical Rock Stars Series. What you need to know is that this is a menage book with MMF, MF, MM erotic romance. If this isn’t what you like to read then don’t buy the book.Between a Rock and a Hard Place is the continuation of Tommy & Jessie Blade & Angel Garcia. Theirs is not a typical relationship. Tommy is bisexual and married to Jessie. Angel is the third in their marriage. Angel is gay he really doesn’t want to do much with Jessie although he has fooled around a little with her too and actually more in this book than in the first book in this series. What they find is that it isn’t easy to make a relationship like this work. They all have to get on the same page and all 3 have to work at making this relationship arrangement work. Oh and while they are working on their marriage the sexual encounters are Hot, Hot, Hot! Between a Rock and a Hard Place is about conflicts & jealousy. Life is full of “tough choices” and the 3 or them have to work at keeping their relationship intact. I can see why this might be a problem. I got my HEA although, their story will continue in Punk Rock Resurrection. I received a complimentary copy of Between a Rock and a Hard Place for an honest review and I give this story 4.5 stars.    

Nikki K’s Review: 4 Stars

The Sexy Trio of Jesse, Tommy, and Angel return in the 2nd edition of Radical Rock Stars Series. 

Immortal Angel has hit the big time. Tommy, Angel and the rest of Immortal Angel are about to embark on their first World Tour. Jesse has been a part of Tommy’s musical career since the beginning.  She has given up her dreams to help him pursue his.  The only problem is, Angel was never HER dream.

When Jesse realizes her unique fashions for the band have sparked interest with the public, she decides it’s her turn. Rather then following Tommy and Angel to Asia, Jesse follows her dream. She returns to college to get her degree in Fashion design. Will Jesse’s step towards her goal of opening her own boutique and designing her own line of clothing cause a rift between her and Tommy? Or will it bring them closer?

Author Jenna Galicki has once again infused heavy emotions with deep desire certain to keep the reader wanting more. The Love affair between Tommy and Jesse is stressed in this edition and Jenna shows the ugly side of poly relationships. That being said, the sex scenes in Between a Rock and a Hard Place left me needing to be near a hard place 😉 

If like me you are into tatted, sexy rocker dudes, and emotional rollercoasters, then this book is sure to strike a chord. 

I really enjoy reading about Jenna’s punk rockers and I give this book 4 stars. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review.

Theresa’s Review: 3.5 stars                                                                        And so the story from The Prince of Punk Rock continues. The band’s success continues, and they’re about to go on a world tour. Bad news: Jessi has to miss the beginning of this tour, and that means Tommy and Angel are on their own.

When Jessi makes it back to the guys, they’ve got their groove and routine going, and Jessi feels out of place. She doesn’t like it, and is resentful of the relationship. Angel does his best to keep everyone happy, but sometimes fails miserably. Anything worth having usually takes a lot of work. For me, this book was way more emotional. You get to really see and feel their struggles, worries, but there is some fun. After all, they are rockers!! On top of their burgeoning superstar status, can they really handle all the work this relationship will no doubt require?

Between a Rock and a Hard Place is the second book in the Radical Rock Stars series.

I received this ARC for an honest review, and I give it 3.5 stars.                                                                                                                                      Lita’s Review: 3.5 Stars                                                                       Between A Rock and A Hard Place (Radical Rock #2) by Jenna Galicki

While at home in the States she has to deal with being home trying to focus on her schooling she has to endure photos in the papers with captions insinuating things regarding Tommy and Angel being together without their wife. Once she joins the European part of their world tour the pressures of getting her store open, still helping with working with the band and her insecurities of the time Angel and Tommy spent together are taking a toll on their relationship. Than when the band’s new manager is putting pressure on them to cut an album while on tour which leaves Jessi by herself while Angel and Tommy are forced to spent more time without her she is almost at wits end.

This action causes a chain reaction that could destroy the band in the middle of the tour and the album. This is what they go through to save their family. There are more graphic sex scenes between the 3 of them and they are quite hot. I give this story 3.5 stars.

Tanya’s Review:  4.5 stars                                                                        Wow I just finished reading Punk Rock Resurrection. This is Damian Hardy & Alyss Taylor story. I really felt for Damian Hardy. He later changes his name and you will see why once you read this book. He had a horrible life growing up with a mother that never loved him and felt he was an imposition. His mother kicked him out on his 18th birthday. Alyssa is one bad a** woman. She is a strong woman and I loved her character. And, the story continues from there. I can’t say more because I don’t do spoilers. At least I don’t intend to. Damian is really a very nice guy with a lot of anguish! Oh and really “Elvira” I loved her. (I can’t say who or what she is because again no spoilers).I really enjoyed reading this book. And as Jenna said you could read it as a standalone but, why would you because you will understand more about the characters that were written in the first 2 books. #1The Prince of Punk Rock and #2Between A Rock and A Hard Place. This book originally was an ARC for me. But, when I found out it was also on Kindle Unlimited I also got it through Amazon so that it could be a verified purchase. Anything to help out our Author friends. I give Punk Rock Resurrection 4.5 stars.

Oh and another book will be out soon by Jenna Galicki: Radical Rock Stars, Book 4 and this one is about Jimmy Wilder Coming Fall 2015. 🙂                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Theresa’s Review: 4.0 stars                                                               Damien Diamond is the bassist for Immortal Angels. He had a rough upbringing, and until Angel helps pull him from his black hole of drugs and alcohol, he was still having a hard time with life.

Alyssa is exactly what Damien needs; someone who isn’t impressed with his persona and will tell him exactly what’s on her mind. She sees him for who he really is, not that hardened, badass bassist. Without giving too much away, Alyssa allows Damien to put his tough act on the shelf for a bit while she manages things. He’s been through so much, and he finally finds a way to deal with his past without chemical dependency.

More hot sex and a really good story line. You get to see where Immortal Angels began. I kinda hoped Damien was getting his own story when I read the previous books in this series, and I was pleased to find out he did.

Out of the entire series, this is definitely my favorite. Punk Rock Resurrection is the third book in the Radical Rock Stars series.

I received this ARC for an honest review, and I give it 4 stars.                                                                                                                                                    Lita’s Review: 4.5 stars                                                                              
                                                                                                                   

Punk Rock Resurrection (Radical Rock Star #3) by Jenna GalickiBook 3 is the story of Immortal Angels bass guitarist Damian Diamond and how he met Angel, his wife and why his wife will leave him if he gets back involved with drugs and alcohol. Damian has had a hard life. Growing up he had to endure an alcoholic mother who was distant and cold. She was emotionally and physically abusive. At a certain age his only salvation was a bass guitar which he worked for at the local music store and used as a life preserver in a life of hell. Unfortunately he also found his mother’s pills and alcohol as a way to deal with the pain. Once his mother put him out at the age of 18 he found himself living on the streets. It was on the streets his friendship with Angel had been cemented. Playing the bass for the Immortal Angels, his friendship with Angel and his job at the tattoo parlor where he worked was all he had in his life. One day while at his job at the Tattoo parlor the new piercer show up Alyssa. Damian is smitten with her. This is his story of how he made Alyssa his wife and how he was able to get clean. Damian is a heart wrenching story when you learn what he had to endure and the head trips his mother placed on him. My heart went out to him and I loved his journey to finding love with Alyssa. I can say I enjoyed this book the best out of the 3 and I am looking forward to the next book which is the drummer’s story Jimmy. I give this story 4.5 Stars.    

  Nikki K’s review: 4.0 OOOO’s (O’s for Orgasms)

PUNK ROCK RESURRECTION Radical Rock Stars: Book Three Author: Jenna Galicki The old adage “don’t judge a book by its cover” certainly works for Damien Hardy. His PUNK ROCK image would lead one to think he is no more than a rebellious irresponsible punk. In reality he is a sweet, gentle musician who happens to like blue mohawks and the Ramones. Damien’s childhood was lacking in many ways but most of all in love. Never did he ever think love would be a factor in his life, unless you’re talking about the love of his bass guitar. Alyssa Taylor is a goth goddess with a sadistic sensibility. A one time nursing student, she finds she has a penchant for sticking people with needles. Realizing her talents are better served in a nontraditional profession, Alyssa embarks on a career as a piercer in a Tattoo studio. The same studio that Damien works in for tips and free ink. As a free spirit, Alyssa was not looking for love or a relationship, but she didn’t run from it when she found it. As soon as the two meet, it’s instant chemistry. Never is the question “if”, but only “when”?! When will their punk and goth worlds collide? Will they be able to overcome Damien’s demon’s from his past. Is Alyssa able to overlook the black heart displayed on his chest in favor of the living man beneath the colorful surface? My only critique is that the level of pain and torment that Damien displays seems disproportionate to the details we are given of his past. I know it is macabre to say I was looking for the real pain to be brought to the surface, but that’s what I did. I would have liked a more detailed account of the real abuse he suffered. It would have made his actions more understandable. However, the depth of his emotional state is very evident and his need for love and acceptance is heartbreaking. Overall I enjoyed the story of Alyssa and Damien’s blossoming love. While I love the “Alpha males”, seeing a vulnerable man able to let his submissive side be shown was hot. When he allows Alyssa to take command of their sex life, I must admit to being nearly as excited as Damien. If you like hot tattooed rockers, kinky sex and a Domme with a soft side, you’ll really enjoy Punk Rock Resurrection. ** I was provided an ARC for an honest review.

Cover Reveal: Pretty Boy by Tara Oakes

From the author of the Kingsmen MC Series comes a new series, BADGE BOYS. You can find the cover and synopsis for the first book in this new series, Pretty Boy, below!

*** WARNING *** This novel is intended for those over 18 yrs. of age due to mature and sexual material.

“Didn’t anyone ever tell you what happens to BAD girls? Well… let Pretty Boy show you.”

Agent Christopher Gibson has everything a man in his position could want. A successful career as one of the FBI’s most credited undercover field agents, with no personal ties to hold him back. He tried that once, it didn’t go over too well.

Jessica Leary is on her way to the top, working on her father’s Senate re-election campaign. She has the job she wants- the opportunity to prove herself to both the political elite and her father.

What could these two people from very different worlds ever have in common? Nothing.

Nothing other than a hot, sexy, torrid love affair that was left in the past- torn apart by the different directions their lives were headed.
Now, months later, Jess finds herself in a perilous position. The past that once brought “Pretty Boy” Chris Gibson into her life has now come back to haunt her, threatening everything that she’s worked for.

When trouble comes knocking on your door, what’s a girl to do? Why, call your bad-ass, sexy-as-sin, FBI agent of an ex-boyfriend to do what he does best… take down the bad guys and anyone else that stands in his way, because when Pretty Boy sets his sights on a target, nothing distracts him. But, why is it that this time is different?

Being close to Jess again, seeing first-hand what he’s given up is just enough to throw everything off course, as Jess seems to be the perfect mix of good AND bad girl.

Didn’t anyone ever tell you what happens to BAD girls? Well… let Pretty Boy show you in book one of the brand new BADGE BOYS series of stand alone novels.
