X and I were probably doomed from the start.
That’s what happens when you meet in court-mandated group therapy and then try to steal from him to pay off your blackmailing drug dealer. Former drug dealer, thank you very much. I'm turning over a new leaf and all that.
Which is why I should leave him alone.
Except he tempts me to do things I swore I’d stop doing. It’s that whole gruff, grumbly, anti-social thing he has going on. Him, flame. Me, moth. Something about him calls to me, makes the blood hum in my body. And I don't want that feeling to end.
Lucy Connors is straight-up insane.
She looks like a Disney princess and tries my patience in more ways than I thought possible. Besides the fact that I have to save her cute little ass from jail, I can’t quite figure out how to leave her alone. Even when she’s trying her hand at Breaking and Entering. Especially when it's myhouse she's burglarizing.
Yeah, we were probably doomed from the start.
But that’s the thing about being hooked on something so good, and so bad for you—you don’t walk away when you should.

Karla Sorenson
Well, let’s see ... I’m a wife and a mother. I’m a writer who wants to make people smile when they read my words. I own a dog that sheds roughly eighteen pounds of hair every day. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I'll love you forever.

Whitney Barbetti
I am a wife to one and a mom to two humans and one cat. I have a deep and abiding love for nachos - especially the kind with the liquid cheese, like from Taco Bell (sorry). I run on less than four hours of sleep thanks to copious amounts of Diet Coke. (Note: this paragraph is not sponsored by anyone except my hungry stomach.)
As a Navy brat, I grew up all over the country, from California and up the east coast from Florida to New England and Colorado. I currently live in Idaho, where we have lots of potatoes and windmills.
I write character-driven contemporary romance novels, heavy on the emotional connection. I LOVE love. I love writing about broken characters who find their soul mates.

Publication Date: August 21, 2017 
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Synopsis

A summer job. That’s all it was supposed to be. It never crossed my mind that I was about to collide with a man who would obliterate every plan I ever made. My mother has always warned me that love is like a lightning bolt and it strikes without warning. But I had no intention of getting struck by either lightning or love. I’d be too busy finishing my journalism degree and landing a job in a city far more sophisticated than Phoenix. There was certainly nothing in the cards about getting involved with an ex-ballplayer turned nightclub boss. Dalton was too old for me, too complicated, too distracting. On the surface, we had almost nothing in common except the draw of an overpowering physical connection. ptThe summer job at a local resort was going to be temporary. He was going to be temporary. But insufferably sexy, arrogant Dalton Tremaine has other ideas. And the harder I fall in love the more I can't find a good reason to resist giving him everything he wants...

Sometimes love demands a second chance, but it will never be bought, no matter the amount.
Michael Carrington promised himself after losing his wife that he was done with love. No more investing in anything he wasn’t capable of walking away.

Rainey Foster has finally graduated college, and as a struggling single mom, she just needs someone to give her a chance. She’s willing to go all in with the right employer, as long as the buck stops there. He can have her time, her commitment and her attention, but no one will ever have her heart again. She thinks she has things figured out until she comes face to face with the illustrious Michael Carrington.
Powerful. Confident. Sexy as Hell.
Lust might ignite the flame between them, but love will have its way.

Excerpt
“You taste good, Rainey,” Michael murmured against my lips. I leaned into him and indulged in the delicious feel of his tongue rolling past mine.

When he broke the kiss, I tightened my grip on him, not wanting this to end. He moved out from under me and forced me to turn, forcing me to fall on my butt. He propped himself over me and started kissing my neck, dragging his lips along the slope of my neck.

I sucked in a breath when his fingertips slipped under my shirt and brushed over my belly button before moving up to my breasts. Thankfully I had on my best lacy bra and panties set. Funny enough I’d bought them from the clearance section. A million questions ran through my mind as warning bells went off. He was my boss. I needed this job. Fuck. His fingertips slipped under my bra and he cupped my breast, kneading it as I lost the capacity to breathe.

There were so many lines drawn between us that I’d already crossed but there was one in particular that I wasn’t ready to do just yet. If I let him continue then I wasn’t sure I’d have the willpower to stop this from going all the way. “Michael,” I said breathlessly. My mind and body were at war with each other. My body wanted him to keep touching me forever. But my mind warned that we couldn’t go too far or else there would be serious consequences.

“What is it?” He licked just under my ear, and the world melted. I wasn’t going to be able to force him to stop. Shit. I had to. I needed the job way more than I needed a great lay.

He kissed me again and it took every ounce of strength for me to speak between kisses. “I um—I don’t think—”

He sat up and looked at me. I wanted to melt into his blue eyes. A hint of worry flashed over them. “We shouldn’t do this. You’re right.”

“Wait. I didn’t say-” He nodded as comprehension dawned. “No, but you were thinking it, and you’re right. Forgive me. I got lost in your eyes.”

God. Did I really just mess this up? I did. I hated myself all of a sudden.

He lifted my chin with his finger. “It’s all good. You’re right.” He adjusted his body until he was sitting up, propping his feet on the ottoman as I had. He pulled me closer to him and wrapped his arm around my shoulder. “Let’s set us back on course.”



“Okay. Yeah. I’d like that.” I sounded like a teenage girl who was caught sneaking out of the house. Ugh.
