Phoebe St. Claire

Feeling a bit drunk and overwhelmed with so many and so few choices at the same time, I needed some time alone and snuck off toward the beach path.

I ran toward the ocean and twirled in the sand as the wind blew around me. Once I started to feel dizzy from twirling, I still wasn't ready to head back to the party, so I took the path that would lead me to the large Olympic-sized pool. I tugged my sandals off with thoughts of putting my feet in the water to rinse the mud and sand away. As I approached the pool, I noticed how it glowed like it was lit by small pale fires. Lost in the enchantment of it, the sudden movement beneath the surface startled me.

A fair-haired boy emerged from the water. He pulled himself up and out so quickly that I was momentarily stunned. And then when he drank me in with his eyes, I shuddered.

I couldn't help it, the way he looked at me just made me shiver. No one had ever looked at me like that before and I found myself gazing back into his intense eyes.

He was utterly beautiful. His bare chest was sculpted but not overly bulky like Danny or Jamie. They worked out every day pumping obnoxious amounts of iron to look the way they did. In contrast, the boy standing before me had a swimmer's build.

He stood stoic and a cautious look crossed his face. He was long and lean in a pair of bright green neon swim trunks.

Right away I could tell he didn't care what anyone thought about him.

I loved the idea of that.

So I smiled at him.

He shook his head and his hair fell into his eyes.

I wanted to reach out and push it away. It wasn't long, but it wasn't short. It was perfect.

"Hey," he said, grabbing a towel off the ground.

It didn't belong to the club. It was small, beige, and a bit worn — not the large hunter-green fluffy ones monogrammed in white I'd always gotten when I used to come here to swim as a kid.

"Hey," I said back, swinging my sandals nervously.

He grabbed a pair of jeans that lay next to where the towel had been and walked right by me.

I turned to watch him as he strode into one of the cabanas and dropped his trunks. I froze and squeezed my eyes shut, thinking I shouldn't be watching him but then opened them quickly when I couldn't resist maybe catching a glimpse.

"Didn't your parents ever tell you it isn't polite to stare?" His voice was low and sexy, and it tugged me out of my own head.

I put my hands on my hips. "Didn't your parents ever teach you not to get dressed in mixed company?"

He pulled his jeans on and laughed. "My mother might have mentioned that once or twice but I've never been good at following the rules."

And it didn't escape my notice that he didn't put any underwear on first.

Hot. Totally and completely hot.

I didn't see anything I shouldn't have seen, it was too dark, but something inside me electrified at the thought of seeing him naked and I stepped closer. That's when I noticed the scuffed-up black work boots on one of the lounges with a T-shirt thrown next to them.

I raised a brow. "Is this your changing room?"

He laughed again but this time added a smile and put his hands up. "Okay you caught me. I better get out of here before anyone else does."

He was adorable and charming and my heart skipped a beat or two.

Then I stepped even closer and entered the cabana entrance, effectively blocking his way. "Why? You're not doing anything wrong."

He shrugged but he didn't try to move around me. "I usually swim in the ocean but when the water is too rough, like tonight, I come here."

I bit my lip in contemplation before speaking. "Does it really matter if you get caught?"

He crossed his arms over his bare chest. "Let's just say it's not just the swimming. It's more that I've been caught doing a few too many things that I shouldn't have been doing in the past."

A bad boy.

The thought made my pulse thunder. "So you're not a member at this club?"

He cleared his throat and shifted from foot to foot. "No," he laughed but his laugh was anything but genuine. "Are you?"

I hesitated as I considered my answer. "No, I was just walking the beach and wanted to rinse my feet. I'm Phoebe," I said extending my hand. Technically, I wasn't lying. I wasn't a member, my parents were. I hadn't even been here in years. And I was out for a walk.

Amusement danced in his blue eyes. "Jeremy," he said back.

When I chewed on my lower lip, I noticed how his eyes focused on it.

Mine focused on the entirety of his mouth — his strong, firm jaw, his sensuous lips, and his tongue that had snuck out to lick his lips.

That mouth.

It was almost too much.

Almost.

Cage
Corps Security #2
by
Harper Sloan





✾ Synopsis ✾


Greg Cage was born to protect. While growing up, he was his mother and sister's shield against the world… until he failed. For the last decade, he has carried that guilt and need for vengeance around... until it was stripped from him. Now, with his best friend getting married and no longer needing his protection, he is even more lost, completely adrift, and desperate for some control. All he has ever known was how to protect: his family, his friends, and his country. Can he go against everything he has ever known, and give up that control?

Melissa Larson will never let anyone hold the reins in her life. She has been the rock in her family for more years than she can remember, and the fight to keep them together is her main priority right now. She has always been fiercely independent and proud. The last thing she will ever do is ask for someone else’s help. But when that choice is out of her control, forcing her to rely on others to save her and her family, and pick up the pieces that are left, will she be able to let someone else be her strength?

The second Greg locks eyes with Meli, he knows that she is someone he needs. Someone he craves. Meli knew the second she met Greg that he would be nothing but trouble and heartache. Her life takes an unexpected turn, and that bitch Fate is back to wreak more havoc on another member of the Corps family.

All hell breaks loose, leaving Greg no choice but to call in a favor. He hooks back up with his old friend Braxxon Breaker from the Breakneck MC. Together, they make sure that nothing threatens anyone Greg loves again.

✿ My Review ✿





Love this book!

Greg and Melissa meet when he takes Izzy's son to the pediatrician office, where Melissa works. They feel an instant attraction to each other. During Izzy's bachelorette party, they can't stay away from each other and spend the night together. Although in the beginning she tries to push him away, Mel can't resist Greg and they start a relationship. But Greg is keeping something important from Mel. Will she be able to forgive him when she finds out the truth?

This is a great story. Just like Axel, it has a lot of drama and very steamy moments. I was hooked from the beginning.

Greg joins Axel in the Ultimate Alpha Club. He is hot and knows it and has a way with words that melt the panties of every woman (and man) who reads this book. He is a true protector and will do everything he keep is loved ones safe.

Melissa is a young woman, very strong and independent. Although in the beggining she just wanted an one night stand with Greg, she can't help but falling for him, though she isn't afraid of pushing his buttons.

Great book and amazing series!








✿ The Series ✿


Axel
Corps Security #1





✾ Synopsis ✾


Fate hasn't always been friends with Isabelle West. In fact, fate has been a downright bitch.

Isabelle has learned the hard way how hard life can be when fate isn't by your side. It can hand you dreams on silver platters, but it can snatch them right back and hand you nightmares. One thing Isabelle knew for sure fate was consistent with was taking away everything she ever loved.

For the last two years Isabelle has been slowly clearing the clouds of her past. Happiness is finally on the horizon. She has a thriving business, great friends, and her life back. All she has to do is jump over the last hurdle... her ex-husband.

When problems start causing her to fear her new life, and memories that are better left forgotten start rushing to the surface the last thing she needs is a ghost from her past to come knocking on her door.

Axel never thought he would look into the eyes of Isabelle West again, and he wasn’t sure he wanted to now. He's carried his anger for so long he isn't sure he can just turn it off, but when he is faced with protecting her and an unexpected desire to have her again, life gets a little more complicated.

How will Axel and Isabelle deal when all their cards are put on the table and everything they thought was true blows up in their faces?

Beck
Corps Security #3





✾ Synopsis ✾


Dee
I've always been good at wearing masks. Not letting anyone see the real me. I'm content being the happy-go-lucky best friend. The strong willed boss. The independent woman who doesn't need a man.

But the truth is I'm just as broken as the rest of you. I'm terrified that all it will take is one person to make all my carefully constructed walls crumble into fine dust. So I guard my heart with everything I have. Determined to never let anyone get close enough to hurt me again.

All is perfect until HE walks into my life. No... he doesn't just walk. He struts his good-looking, sex-oozing self right into my space and demands that I see HIM. Making me want what I know I can't have.

So I did the only thing I know how to do.
I run.
But he just won't let me go.

Beck
The second I see her, I know she will be mine. I see past the gorgeous smiles and heart-stopping laughter. I see HER. She doesn't want me to know her secrets or the past that haunts her, but I make it my mission to find out.

To make her mine.

She can run all she wants, but it will never be far enough to stop me from coming after her.
She's it for me and she knows it.
She's just too scared to admit it.

No cliffhanger, HEA, inter-connected standalones. This book is intended for a mature reading.

Cooper
Corps Security #4





✾ Synopsis ✾


Do you take me seriously? Because I don't. I use my jokes and easygoing personality to hide the pain I've felt since he took his last breath. I'm adrift without my partner in crime, my best friend…my brother. I can taste the vengeance just within my grasp.

Until she barges into my life. Promising me happiness and a peace I've been craving for years. She is the sun to my darkness, the happy to my despair.

But she holds secrets. Just like I do. She holds hers close, where I just pray mine don't rock the walls we're trying to build.

Now I'm stuck at a crossroads between my desire for revenge and my craving for her and the life we could have together — and I have no idea which road I should travel.

All I know with crystal clear certainty is that the past has the power to destroy it all.

No cliffhanger. This book is not suitable for younger readers. There is strong language, adult situations, and some violence.

Locke
Corps Security #5





✾ Synopsis ✾


Darkness is the only thing I see. Ever since the day my life changed. The day that everything and everyone I held close to me ceased to exist. The day I lost it all and the demons of my past consumed my every waking moment.

I tried to keep others at arm's length. Tried not to let my darkness taint them. Ruin them. Harm them. And whether I want to admit it or not, as much as I wish I could keep them locked out, they refuse to leave. Refuse to let me suffer alone.

If I hadn't been so focused on keeping those demons from flying free, I wouldn't have missed how one perfect angel was able to sneak her way under my skin — refusing to let go. Making me want things I don't deserve.

She consumes me. Her beauty knows no end. The love she promises tempts me every time she's near. But that pure heart that makes her MY Emmy is the one thing I'm convinced I'll destroy if I ever let her close.

I'm a broken man. A broken man with too much darkness in his soul to ever let her light shine upon me. But even that doesn't stop me from craving her with every single breath in my body.

Unexpected Fate
Hope Town #1





✾ Synopsis ✾


Have you ever felt like you were living your life for a future that was predetermined? Like there was some bigger picture you just prayed you would someday see clearly? That picture has been crystal clear to me since I was old enough to recognize it for just what it was.

Or I should say recognize him for who he was.

I've loved Cohen Cage since I was a small child. He's been my everything for the last twenty-two years. I've loved him through every girlfriend he's ever brought home. Through his college years and then mine. I've loved him through two deployments. And ever since the day I told him how I felt, he's acted like I'm a stranger.

My name is Danielle Reid, and it's time for me to get my man.

Our future is an unexpected fate, and no matter what our parents, siblings, and friends say... it's going to be worth every second of the fight to make it happen.

Bleeding Love
Hope Town #2





✾ Synopsis ✾


(Stand alone)

I've loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day.

Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again.

Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face.

He's on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.

Jaded Hearts
Loaded Replay #1

Release Date: September/October 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


Signing with Brighthouse Records was supposed to be everything we ever wanted — our better life. Our chance at everything we never had but always wanted. All our dreams would finally come true and we were on top of the world. It was our chance at the happiness we never had in life.

Our every desire was at our fingertips and the power of that feeling was all consuming. But then it took every dream we thought would come true and it slapped us in the face with the cold hard reality.

Dreams were just that... something that floated on the cusp of untouchable, taunting you with every graze of your fingertips before slipping even further away.

Happiness... that feeling is a joke.

In the end it became painfully obvious that each of us would always have each other, but we would forever be alone.
