I’m a f*cking bastard.

I f*ck girls to forget about her.

She’s the girl I’m not supposed to want … my step-sister.

She hates me for what I’ve done.

I ruined her life.

Now I’m a Motocross racer. A winner. A player. A bastard.

But being a bastard comes with bad press.

Lucky for me Emily is a PR agent.

When she comes to work for me, I’ll make her remember why she once wanted me too.

She can’t say no … she needs me to keep her job, and I need her to f*ck me.

One way or another, she will be mine again.

Excerpt

“See?” I hold up the towel, staring straight into his eyes, so I can stop myself from accidentally letting my eyes wander off toward … I don’t know. 

He cocks his head and smiles. “Wow, I did not expect that from you, sis.” 

“I’m not your sis, Chris.” I dangle the towel in front of him. “Want this back? Say you won’t call me that again.” 

Instead of admitting defeat, he takes another step in my direction, catching me off guard. “Oh, no, you can keep it. I feel perfectly fine like this. With the exception of one thing.” He takes another step, making me lean back as far as I can without giving up my space and showing him that I am actually avoiding coming into contact with him. Who knows what will happen when he touches me. Actually, I do, and it isn’t good. It’s wrong. So wrong … 

“You,” he growls, and then he puts his arm around my back and pulls me in. 

I can feel his length against my pants, and I hope I didn’t dream it up that I feel it growing. Holy fuck. 

“Chris!” I shout. 

“What? Afraid?” he muses, leaning in with a smirk to taunt me. 

“Get off me.” 

“You used to beg me to do the opposite,” he says, biting his lip, which sends a bolt of heat through my veins. Why does he always have to be so vexing? 

“You’re just playing me,” I say, unwrapping myself from his arms. 

“No, I’m not, but you are.” 

“Stop with the semantics.” I throw the towel back at him. “And put this on. I’d rather not get another dick slap.” 

He laughs. “Guess that makes me the winner of this little bet.” 

“There’s no bet here,” I say. “No game. Just me proving that I’m fine with being your PR rep.” 

“Of course, you are …” 

“Hey, do you want me to do this or not?” I ask, raising a brow. He wraps the towel around his waist again, which makes it easier for me to breathe. “Hell yeah, I want you.”

Excerpt

(C)Amy Muscat 2014

 

Prologue

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words… Well, I’ve just received two pictures, so does that mean two thousand words?

I don’t know, but I do know I can’t think of two thousand words to describe how I feel right now: two thousand expletives maybe, but not two thousand actual, structural words.

I can tell you how it feels like my heart is breaking right now. What I thought I felt a couple of days ago, the heartache and the pain, is nothing like I’m feeling right now. My legs shake, and I collapse on the sofa in my living room.

I look back down at my phone and see that dreaded first picture that no one person wants to receive. The screen blurs, and I watch as a fat teardrop falls onto the glass screen. And then another until my phone becomes soaked with my tears. A sob hitches in my throat, getting caught for a second before it flows out of my mouth like it’s a natural sound coming from my body, when in actual fact; it’s not. Laughter and sarcastic remarks are what I’m used to coming out from my mouth, but not this. Not these horrible sounds that my body seems to instinctively know.

I feel the pain start to radiate through me, my chest burns and my heart is collapsing in on itself. I can feel pins and needles start to tingle from my toes all the way up to the tips of my fingers, and I feel goosebumps form on my arms, indicating the coldness running through me.

If it weren’t for the pounding in my head, and the sound of my blood rushing in my ears, I would have said that my body had frozen. If one’s blood freezes, then it doesn’t circulate through the body and the heart fails… Well, that’s what it feels like anyway; my heart was failing.

I’d never known heartbreak before. I had seen it, numerous times through friends and family, on TV and in movies, but I had never felt it. And if this is what it feels like, I never want to be in love with someone… but it was too late. I already was, and he had broken me into pieces. Teeny-tiny pieces. I don’t think even the best surgeon in the fucking universe would be able to put me back together again- sort of like Humpty Dumpty.

And all of this is because of one man. One man that I loved- that I thought loved me!

It was fourteen words that broke me two days ago. Two pictures worth two thousand words, that completely shattered me not even two minutes ago, and it was six words that I spoke out loud right now that seemed to echo around my living room and steel my resolve to forgo men in the future…

“Fuck you, Blake Walker. Fuck you.”

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
