Relationships are ugly, dark—destructive.

This is reality’s illusion.

Excerpt
Emily asserted herself, testing the waters to see if I’d let her lead when she aligned me with the bed and encouraged me to sit. She wiggled her way between my thighs and forced me to spread them wider to accommodate her frame when she returned to her knees in front of me. It didn’t take her long to rectify the damage our conversation had done to my erection when she cupped my balls and stroked my cock. When my head passed those supple lips, I laid back in bliss. It was selfish and greedy, but the need to allow a woman to physically take care of me was all-consuming. My dick in her mouth removed my ability to think. It wasn’t until I heard the wrapper tearing that I realized Emily planned to fuck me, not just suck me off.
A lazy smile spread across my face when I tried to sit up, but she pushed me back.
“Just enjoy, Bastian.”
And I did.
She rode me like I was a bull in a damn rodeo, but she didn’t get off in eight seconds. Her pussy was tight and warm, blissful. Nearing the apex, her movements got stronger, faster; she was a goddamn pro. My face flushed as my entire body tensed, my ass clenched, and every thought in my head left—the lights went out in my brain. They flicked back on when the body spasms took over, and I unloaded into the condom. She didn’t stop until I was motionless. My heart pounded, and by God, I’d never felt more relaxed and sated. I also had no clue whether she’d gotten off or just gotten me off.
Opening my eyes, I found Emily still poised on my dick. But it wasn’t her face that interested me. I focused on her red tuft of hair and her bright pink, swollen pussy. I had zero desire to get to know her, to cuddle her, or even want to see her again.
It was good.
I’d enjoyed it.
And now I just wanted to leave.
Jesus, I was a self-centered, narcissistic, prick.
When she climbed off, I assumed she went to the bathroom to clean up but was surprised when she came back with a warm washcloth. Emily removed the condom from my now-flaccid cock with practiced ease and wiped away the mess before disposing of the rubber. Out of nowhere, she reappeared with a cold bottle of water and tossed a throw over the lower half of my body before she donned a silky robe from behind the door.
She took a seat in the chair in the corner, and I tilted my head to see her from a different angle. She really was a beautiful woman.
“You’d look gorgeous on a canvas.”
Her demure smile told me she assumed it was the compliment I had intended it to be. “Do you use models? Your work doesn’t look like still life.”
“No. I don’t, but that doesn’t mean I don’t paint from inspiration. Have you seen my work?” I wouldn’t have pegged her as the art type. That was a rather narrow-minded view of someone I knew nothing about, but she just didn’t give off that vibe.
“I’ve known Ferry for a long time. A person can’t be involved in his life without knowing those he deems important.” She crossed her legs and put her hands in her lap. “So yes, I’ve seen a lot of your work. Ferry speaks very highly of your talent. He thought you were great many years ago and was saddened by your sudden flight from the community.” Emily seemed to search my expression for something, or maybe she waited for an explanation she wouldn’t receive. “But my understanding is since your return, everything about both you and your painting is completely transformed. I can’t wait to see your latest work at Le Musée on Friday.”
I sat up straight. “Ahh, shit. You’re a collector?” Nervously, I found my hand in my hair, pulling on it in frustration. This was not a good way to start the weekend.
“Bastian, really, calm down. I’m a woman who loves sex and art. They can’t be exclusive of each other, so why pretend like they are. We’re consenting adults. I’m thrilled to have shared pleasure with you as your work has shared with me over the years.”
That wasn’t a topic I cared to discuss, and I made a pathetic attempt to go a different direction. “Who’s your favorite artist?” I couldn’t get any more fucking elementary school than that unless I asked her about her favorite color.
Jesus, I just needed to get the fuck up and leave, go back to my own room. I didn’t need to have an obligatory conversation just because we’d had sex that she initiated.
I was a socially awkward moron.
She sat forward, eager to have a conversation. “Hmm…I’m really into photography, I love Ansel Adams. Kind of trite, I know, but I have a thing for clouds. His black and whites just give the sky so much depth. I get lost in them. But I love Kandinsky, Tarkay, Klimt, O’Keefe. It’s all about color for me, and yes, I realize the idiocy since I love black and white photography. There are tons of local artists around LA I follow as well. I try to make it a point to pick up an original piece any time I go on vacation. I frame some of them, but most stay wrapped in tubes.” She twisted her fingers in front of her as if she were embarrassed by her tastes or collection. “My trinkets from my travels.” Her left shoulder hitched in a bit of a shrug that I found adorable. She was nervous, and for the first time since we’d met, I had the upper hand.
“Are you involved in the art community for a living?”
She sat back, and a sort of sadness washed over her features. “No. My husband’s a very successful businessman. I don’t work.”
I spat a mouthful of water across the room. “Your what?” Wiping my lips, I tried to get a hold on the situation. “Did you say your husband?” I didn’t do married women, not that I did women period, but never those in a relationship of any sort.

I met my soulmate on July 17th, 2017. He wasn’t my typical type, but the way his ice blue eyes cut through me and his deep honeyed voice warmed me back up made him something new entirely; they were two of the million little things that seemed to make him mine.


Except…I met my fiancé December 22nd, 2012.

I didn’t plan for any of this to happen. Not to meet James Larrabee or to fall in love. Not to hurt the people closest to me. And definitely, definitely not to write the letters that would be both my salvation and my damnation.

Genre: Contemporary Romance/Dramatic Comedy
Release Date: January 23, 2020

West Larson comes from old money—the kind of wealth that comes with expectations steeped in archaic traditions. So, it’s not surprising when he learns the conditions of his trust fund: produce an heir before he turns twenty-five.


Enter Stacia Kellan. Her lowkey personality makes her the perfect baby mama…without the drama. And thanks to her wild-ass hair, colorful tattoos, and smart mouth, she’s exactly the kind of girl his parents would never approve of. Add in the fact that she’s a total smokeshow…knocking her up certainly wouldn’t be a hardship.

Stacia lives her life fast and loud. The idea of settling down isn’t on her radar. So, when her long-time friend asks her to have his baby, her immediate answer is a big, fat hell-to-the-no. Seriously, is he crazy?

West pulls out all the stops in wooing her and with every heated encounter, Stacia finds herself falling a little more for his charm and wit. Oh, and his forearms…yum.

Obligations. Lust. Friendship. Love.

The lines begin to blur as emotions enter the equation and besides, everyone knows you can’t deny your rebel soul.

Excerpt
“Can I drive?” I ask, rubbing my hands together like an evil genius who just hatched a plan.

West appraises me for a moment before laughing. “That’d be a hell no.”

“Why?”

“This car’s got a lot of power.” He leans back against the passenger door smirking.

“Yup, sure does.”

“And you think you can handle it?”

Scoffing, I say, “I know I can.” One of the many things AJ and I bonded over when we became friends was our love of cars; while she prefers old, American muscle, I lust over supercars. Either way, she and I both like to go fast—really fucking fast. “Don’t tell me you’re one of those misogynistic assholes that think women can’t drive?”

“Not at all. I’m just territorial about my car.” A calculating glint shines in his blue eyes. “Give me one good reason I should let you behind the wheel of my baby.”

“I’ve wanted to drive one of these ever since it completed a lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife track in just over seven minutes. You do realize you own the seventh fastest street legal vehicle, right?” I step into him, pressing my front to his, my hands roaming over the hard planes of his chest. “No lie, the thought of handling it gets my panties…” 

I trail off and West gulps, sliding his arms around me, tugging me impossibly closer. “Gets your panties what?” His voice is rough and gritty, rubbing over my libido the same way a stubbled jaw would my skin.

Bring my ears to his lips, I whisper, “Wet. It gets them wet.”

“Fuck,” he groans, every bit of his longing plain for me to hear—and feel, judging by the bulge pressing into my belly. “She’s all yours.”

I step back from him, a smug, victorious smile plastered to my face. “I knew you’d come around.”

Excerpt
"I'm okay, Mom got home last night so we'll be talking today."
He makes a humming sound. "That's good Mia, it's time you two sorted your shit out."
"Yeah," I sigh, I'm actually dreading it. "I'm not sure I'm ready for it but it has to be done. What do you have planned for today?"
He laughs, "Nothing as daunting as what you have planned." Voices sound in the background, "Princess I've got to go, I'll call you later."
"Okay Hudson, I love you." My eyes widen as I realize what I've just said.
"Mia..." He rumbles, "You don't get to say that when I'm not beside you."
My tongue darts out and wets my lips, "Hudson." I moan, not sure what to say.
"Mia." He whispers, "I wanted to say it to your face."
"Say it now." I whisper back, a smile on my lips.
"I love you Princess and you're going to find out just how much when I get back to you."
My heart melts at his admission. "I love you too Hudson, but please, hurry up and come back. I miss you like crazy."
"I know, I'll be there soon. I promise." He's promised before and he's still not here.
"Okay, I'll talk to you later." I say not wanting him to know that I don’t believe him.
"Definitely. Later Princess." He ends the call and I still have a smile on my face. I've never felt as happy as I am now. Hudson has made me the happiest I've ever felt in my life.

Excerpt
“What are you so afraid of? You think that I don’t know you?” I closed the distance between us and reached for her hand. “You bite the tip of your index finger when you’re nervous. You eat peanut butter straight from the jar and hum when you lick the spoon. Family gatherings make you uncomfortable. And you’re stubborn as hell.”
Emotion swam in her green irises.
I cupped her cheeks between my palms. “I love you with all that I am.”
“Please … don’t do this.” She blinked back the threat of tears.
“I need the words. Tell me you don’t want me. That you don’t love me. Because if you can do that, I’ll walk out that door, and I won’t ever look back.”
Time ticked by as I waited for the words. The urge to press my mouth to hers burned through me, but I needed an answer.
Molly closed her eyes, inhaling deeply, and when she opened them again, it was as though a switch had been flipped. She grasped my wrists, removing my hands from her face, and then took a step back and straightened her spine.
I braced myself for impact.
Her face was devoid of emotion as she delivered the blow. “I don’t want you. I don’t love you.”
Pain ripped through me. I dropped my head to the ground, giving it a shake before I looked back at her. “You win.” I gave her my back and made my way to the door. “Molly,” I said, reaching for the handle.
“Y-yeah?” Her voice cracked, but I didn’t turn around.
Anger and agony twisted inside me, twining into a thickly corded rope. “I never want to see you again.”
