"Kace?" he asked again. She hadn’t moved, and the room was spinning, partially from the wine and partially from his lust-filled state.

"Hmm?" She looked up. God, she was beautiful, and so damn close to him he could nearly taste the wine on her lips.

"Your call," he said, lowering his head to hers.

"This means nothing," she whispered against his lips. "We're drunk, and it means nothing," she repeated as her hands tangled in his hair.

With a moan he shook his head.

"Right, nothing." He licked her lower lip, tasting the red wine, then running his tongue along the bottom of her jaw.

She arched her back, and he pulled her closer. His control was hanging on by a single thread.

When his lips grazed hers, she opened her mouth to him. All hell broke loose. He hadn't expected her to taste so good, to feel so ripe, to feel perfect in his arms, to moan his name.

His tongue tangled with hers. Kacey ran her fingers up and down his biceps, then tucked her hands underneath his shirt, peeling it off his body.

"Told you naked slumber parties were more fun," he said between kisses.

Redemption
Deviant #2
by
Jaimie Roberts

Release Date: April 3rd 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


How could anyone move on from a betrayal so devastating, it cut down to the bone and rooted itself deep within? You could never forgive such heartache...

Or could you?

From the moment Tyler was six, she fell in love with that cocky eight-year-old boy with the black spiky hair, captivating blues eyes, and scruffy uniform. From the moment he punched a boy for hurting her, Tyler knew there was no going back. They were always meant to be together...

Always.

Then everything changed. The stage was set like a tragic Shakespearean play, and Tyler's and Dean's world — as they knew it — had ended.

Or had it?

Tyler

My name was Jessica now. I faked my own death, changed my identity, and moved thousands of miles across the ocean just to escape the one man I would never get out of my heart. I had a four-year-old son I adored more than anything in the world. On one fateful, horrific night, the life I knew disappeared in the blink of an eye. I left people behind. People I cared about. People I would never forget. People I loved.

But had I truly moved on?

No one said leaving behind the one man you had loved since you were six would be easy. I lived life day-to-day. I even met a man and tried to settle down. Evan was a man any woman would desire. So why could I not love him the way he obviously loved me? Why couldn't I move past the dark-haired, blue-eyed boy who consumed my every thought? I may have left him, but he had never truly left me.

I could never love another man. Dean made sure of that the day he breezed into my life. I was only half a woman now. I had been broken and bruised by the one man I thought I could always love and trust. How could I let go of something like that? I suppose I just had to. I was just getting by with each day that passed. I was coping. I was managing, and that was keeping me from falling apart.

But then disaster struck again. And it was on that day...

Everything changed.

Dean

You can't hide forever, Tyler. I will always be hunting you, always be searching, and will never give up. If there was ever one certainty in your life, it was that. You slipped through my fingers, not once but twice. You took my heart with you when you left me that day. No amount of alcohol, women, or punching bags would block you from my mind. You couldn't be dead. I wouldn't allow you to be dead. You're out there somewhere. I must congratulate you that you had evaded me for this long. You always were a smart girl. How could I not have fallen in love with you? You did escape me this time, but I will find you, Tyler. I promise you that. And when that day comes...

I will finally make you MINE.

Reft

✾ Synopsis ✾


An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. ~ Newton's First Law of Motion

Brandon "Brand" Carmichael's life was the stuff dreams were made of... too bad it was an illusion.
As a guitarist for Inert Motion, Brand traveled the world, performing with his brothers in all but blood.
He never stopped moving all the while his mind played in a never ending loop. Now outside influences have changed the band's course, leaving Brand's life void of the balance he craved. Once again, his dream had become a recurring nightmare.
Brand coped the only way he knew how; retreat into solitude.

The acceleration of an object as produced by a net force is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force, in the same direction as the net force, and inversely proportional to the mass of the object. ~ Newton's Second Law of Motion

Magdalena "Layna" Delacroix had achieved the long sought goal of her Ph.D. in Psychology, but success came at a high cost: over one hundred thousand dollars in debt. After being presented with the opportunity to fulfill her desire to help someone in the aftermath of tragedy, along with earning enough money to clear her debt and start a psychology practice of her own, Layna had to balance the means against the outcome.

Could she be the force to stop the downward spiral of someone who refused to seek help?

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. ~ Newton's Third Law of Motion

Neither Brand nor Layna expected the reaction they had to one another. It was the opposite of everything they sought.

Could Layna live a lie while pushing Brand to live in the truth?

Would Brand forgive her for committing the one unforgivable sin he couldn't overlook?

Or was he branded by destiny to be Reft...

✿ Excerpt ✿


****Unedited and Subject to Change. ©Libby Austin 2014****


"Sometimes I get in the zone and everything else gets tuned out. I forget to eat and sleep, or even what day it is. Things just blur together when I'm focusing. It's like my mind can only devote itself to the creative. And I had a disagreement with my brother, which didn’t help matters."

"Oh, do y'all fight a lot?" she asked while continuing to chow down on her syrup with a side of waffles. "My siblings and I fought all the time growing up, but now that we're older, we get along much better, as long as we don't have to share a room or a bathroom."

"Not so much anymore. We did when we were younger. Then we didn't talk for a long time." My truth-telling danced a fine line. One conversation with my mom about Barrett and me having contact and everything would come crashing down. I loved my parents, but I couldn't let go of Barrett again, not even for them."

"What made you, or him, get back in touch after not talking for such a long time?"

"Umm, well, uhh, I guess somewhere around the time Bow and Danelle got married, the dynamic of the band started changing. There was just a lot going on; Joker and Ruff stopped trying to kill each other and started fuc—dating each other, and then Touch met Kaitlyn and all of their shit went down, and I realized that even though my band had been my surrogate family for years, I needed my real family, my blood and my best friend since the beginning. So I began trying to reach out to Barrett, and one day, he responded.

"It's been nice catching up with him and talking about all the things I've done with the band and stuff. He kept track of it all. We talk pretty much every day now, except when he's pissed at me."

"Does he ever come to visit? Maybe I'll get a chance to meet him while I'm here. If he's half as pushy as you are, I might like him," she claimed with a smile, but panic rose inside me. Not because she thought I was pushy or she might like him better — Barrett and I had never been the type to compete or fight over a girl — but she wanted to meet him. Total no-go situation.

"Yeah, he probably won't make it anytime soon. He's got other obligations right now. But, uhh, but I need you to promise me you won’t tell my parents or your mom about Barrett." My hands clinched the hard bench seat and my legs bounced up and down nervously. I didn't know why I couldn't keep my mouth shut around her, or just stay the fuck away from her.

"Why's that?" By now, she'd stopped eating and was focusing on me, studying me, looking at me as if she could see the thoughts ripping through my head like a natural disaster in the making.

"They don't talk to each other. My parents have, uhh, they have a different view of Barrett. He doesn't want contact with them, and it's just easier for everyone if they don't know he's talking to me. I don't want to hurt them."

"Do you think you could help them heal their rift before it's too late and it can't be fixed?"

"It's already too late. The only thing I can do is try to salvage what I have left and not cause any more damage or harm or pain to anyone else." I stopped and thought for a moment before I said anything else. "I shouldn't have even told you; something about you makes you easy to talk to. But I need you to promise me that you aren't going to repeat the things we talk about or that you see to my mom, your mom, or anyone else for that matter. If you can't do that, we can't be friends, or even friendly neighbors."

Layna looked me directly in the eye. I'd always heard a person's soul and true intentions show through the eyes, telling you if their intentions were good or bad. The look in Layna's eyes told me her intentions were good.

"Brand, I promise I won't repeat the things you tell me or that I see to your parents or mine."

I took her promise at face value. What I should have remembered was the saying about good intentions and the road to hell being paved with them. I knew all about good intentions, and I knew all about hell. I’d lived in my own personal tormented version of hell for over a decade.

✿ The Author ✿


One day some words came to mind, so I wrote them down. Soon the words became sentences, which formed paragraphs, which, in turn, formed chapters. Before long, those few words had become a book.

When I'm not reading or writing, I'm a wife, mother, and business owner. I've lived on both coast and few places in between, but as born and raised Southern girl, I'll always believe there's no place like home.
