✾ Synopsis ✾


I thought I had found love.
I thought I had found my forever.
I'd never been more wrong in all my life.

Sadie Westbrook's seemingly perfect life comes to a screeching halt when she catches her fiancé in bed with another woman. Suddenly, everything she believed in is tested and there's only one person she can turn to — the guy who has been by her side ever since their best friend's fell in love and became inseparable.

Ezra Collins — the bassist for the band Willow Creek — has only ever had one weakness, and her name is Sadie. When he receives a frantic call he rushes to her aid, helping to pick up the pieces of her crumbling life — even if that means letting Sadie live with him.

The close proximity tests the limits of their friendship and as the lines between friends and lovers blur they'll have to decide if falling in love with your best friend is worth the risk of losing them.














✿ Excerpt ✿


I looked up at the sky and the birds flying above us. "I feel like I don't know who I am anymore. I spent two years with a guy that stripped me of my identity. I feel like all I have of myself is my store and the rest I'm left questioning. I tried so hard to please him, to make him happy, and in the end I made myself miserable. I was just so desperate for it to work out that I overlooked how toxic our relationship was. How stupid is that?"

"You're human," he replied. "We have this inane desire to belong to something that is greater than we are on our own. That desire is so strong that we can fool ourselves into believing things that aren't true."

"So, I'm not crazy?" I cracked a smile.

"Definitely not crazy."

His smile was comforting and I reminded myself for the hundredth time that everything would be okay.

I rested my head on his shoulder and a moment later his head rested on top of mine.

A smile touched my lips.

I'd missed this — having someone that understood me completely, even when I didn't know myself.

♡ Release Day ♡ Under the Influence by L.B. Simmons @lbsimmons33 @InkSlingerPR




Under the Influence
by
L.B. Simmons

Release Date: May 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


Dalton
I loved you once. A love I thought irrevocable. A love I mistakenly believed could transcend both time and circumstance. Under the influence of my dimwitted, naïve, traitorous heart, I became intoxicated with what I now know was simply a figment of my self-indulgent imagination. So drunk on the feeling, I couldn't see what was right in front of my face. So foolishly enamored, I blindly followed my heart into the depths of an emotion that would ravage me.
Years later, I know now what I wish I knew then. I am stronger. Smarter. Tougher. I will not allow myself to be broken again.
I loved you.
I raged for you.
I wept for you.
And now, I'm letting you go.


Author's Note: Under the Influence is the journey of two childhood friends that spans the course of five pivotal years in their lives. It is a story about their discovery of true friendship as it blossoms into first love, their experience of crucial sacrifice and ultimate betrayal, and their endurance of agonizing heartbreak on the way to finding lasting redemption.

✿ Excerpt ✿


Dalton POV

All that remains is the orange in the sky and the sweet scent of the angel lying next to me. Nothing else.

We watch in silence as we always do until the sun finally sets, then both breathe out a long sigh before I turn to face her. "I have something for you. It's not much, but I saw it and thought of you."

Her eyes widen with excitement as an equally joyful smile spreads across her beautiful features. I reach into my pocket and pull out the item I spied just a couple of days ago, buying it as a gift for her birthday, but it turns out I really suck at surprises. Who knew?

Dangling the long strand of black beads in her face, an unexpected rush of anxiety races through my system. I've never given anyone anything. Ever. I find it extremely unnerving.

Her grin widens further as she extends her hand, uncurling her fingers and exposing her palm. I lower the bracelet and watch as it coils into her grasp. My eyes rise to meet hers and I swallow deeply, trying to rid the nerves constricting my throat. "It's uh... They're onyx — the beads. I read that they offer protection for the person who wears them. I just..." I clear my throat. "I wanted you to be protected even when I'm not around."

Her smile is hindered as her teeth graze her bottom lip. I fight the urge to take that pouty lip in between mine, breaking my stare from her mouth and bringing it back to the bracelet before glancing back to her sky blue eyes.

She turns to fully face me, the bracelet still secure in her clenched hand. Her expression timid, she inquires, "Put it on me?"

I nod and slowly uncurl her grip, allowing my touch to linger on the soft pads of her fingers with each one drawn away. She shivers in response and I breathe a light chuckle through my nose, still amazed each time I elicit those involuntary reactions from her. Once the bracelet is pinched between my fingers, she turns her wrist and waits patiently as I hook the ends together. Releasing it, I watch as it slides gracefully along the skin of her arm to land across the bones of her wrist. My hand instinctively rises and my fingers trace its traveled path, raking over the bracelet as I clench her hand in mine and press a soft kiss in the center of her palm.

Her breath shudders before she whispers, "I love it, Dalton. It's... perfect. Thank you."

I feel my face warm with her compliment, so break my eyes away from her to focus on the stars. After a couple of moments of peace-filled silence, I inquire, "If you were a color, what color would you be?"

Taking her eyes away from the bracelet, she giggles and twists to look at me. "What color would I be?"

I nod. "Yeah..." I stall, stunned with my need for honesty. "It's just, sometimes I feel like a chameleon, you know? Forced to change my colors based on where I am in my life."

I release a weighted breath. "Lately it feels as though I change them so often, I'm nothing more than a fucked-up version of an impressionist painting."

Glancing to the side, my heart lurches as she crinkles her nose in confusion, my absolute favorite of her expressions. My eyes linger the light scattering of freckles on the bridge of her nose before once again seeking comfort in the obscurity of the night sky. "To those far away, I project a solid, recognizable image. But in reality, I'm comprised of nothing but a series of angry, incoherent brush strokes in every color imaginable. Disjointed."

I twist my neck and pin her with my stare. "Broken."

Her mouth dips at the corners before she turns on her side and tucks her hands under her cheek, her blue eyes sincere. "Do you think Renoir and Monet didn't know what they were doing? That they didn't purposely place each stroke of their paintbrush in order to create their envisioned masterpiece?"

She tightens her gaze. "You are a work of art, Dalton. Your own masterpiece, regardless if you choose to acknowledge it or not. Every experience that paints your picture is a stroke made just for you. Each one of them is essential in order for you to grow, to learn, and to teach."

She shrugs her shoulders. "You ask me what color I would be? Well, I would be every single color I could because to me, those colors are emotions. Feelings. And life would mean absolutely nothing without the many colors that surround us. The many... experiences we live through that propel us forward into the people we are meant to become."

The Billionaire Game 2
The Billionaire Game #2
by
Lila Monroe

Release Date: May 11, 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


Who would have thought a month ago I'd be opening my very own luxurious lingerie shop? Playboy billionaire Asher Young, that's who. And with his encouragement, and deep pockets (that look very good on the seat of his tight pants), my dreams are finally coming true.

The only problem is, my silent partner has turned out to be all mouth — and lips. And tongue. Is he for real, or is this just another one of his flirty games? With my dreams on the line, I can't afford to get played.

But when he looks at me like that or touches me like that, all bets are off.

✿ Excerpt ✿


Asher was ticking off a list of details on his fingers. "We still need to get this space completely renovated and set-dressed, finalize the last hirings of additional people to produce your designs, finalize your launch collection, register trademarks, and establish the company on paper." He frowned. "I feel like I'm forgetting something. Oh yes! Contact the press."

Meanwhile, my lust had been completely overridden by blind panic.

"Slow down, Flash Gordon," I tried to joke, doing my best to keep my hands and voice from shaking with anxiety as I responded.

Usually making a reference to Asher's secret geekiness was good for about a half hour of him condescendingly explaining how I'd mangled or misconstrued said reference, but today he just laughed, leaning back against the wall in an unfairly relaxed posture. "Feeling the pressure?"

There were deep sea divers who were feeling less pressure than I was. "Oh, only every second of every day. Dammit, Asher, I'm up to my eyeballs in work and I don't have the first idea how to go about doing half the things you just said!"

It cost me to admit that, but I couldn't endanger my dream for the sake of my pride.

✾ Synopsis ✾


Sexy playboy billionaire Asher Young goes through girlfriends like he goes through bottles of Moët. I would know — he brings them all to get fitted for my luxury lingerie designs. I guess that's one way to avoid awkward conversations when they find another girl's panties in his Maserati.

Now he has a proposition for me: he'll invest in my design business, and I'll finally open the boutique of my dreams.

There's just one problem: I can't stop kissing him. And he looks REALLY good naked.

Make that two problems...

T.K. Leigh, otherwise known as Tracy Leigh Kellam, is the USA Today Best Selling author of the Beautiful Mess series. Originally from New England, she now resides in sunny Southern California with her husband, dog and three cats, all of which she has rescued (including the husband). She always had a knack for writing, but mostly in the legal field. It wasn't until recently that she decided to try her hand at creative writing and is now addicted to creating different characters and new and unique story lines in the Contemporary Romantic Suspense genre.

When she's not planted in front of her computer, writing away, she can be found running and training for her next marathon (of which she has run over fifteen fulls and far too many halfs to recall). Unlike Olivia, the main character in her Beautiful Mess series, she has yet to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
