Synopsis:

From five-time bestselling author, LK Collins, comes ABBY, the riveting conclusion to LATCH, a one of a kind love story.

I followed my heart and took the leap of a lifetime. Leaving everything I’ve ever known behind, diving into the abyss of love. That consuming, sacred, life-changing feeling that takes you captive. And you would do the same, if Latch looked into your eyes the way he did mine.
He blurred everything else out.
It didn’t matter where we were…I was all that mattered.
Now, as I’m slipping – fading – remembering what we shared, I find peace in the darkness, because I have no regrets.

Every motherf*cking rule I’ve lived my life by went out the window the moment I laid eyes on her.

 

Abby instantly turned my world upside down.
And from the second she gave in to me, I was a changed man.
Never the same again.
How could I be?
She was my once in a lifetime.
And now that she’s gone, every part of me is broken, shattered from the inside out.
The connection we shared was so strong that the memories alone will never be enough.
Placing the cold, black steel to my temple, I am reassured knowing that this…is the only way…

***This book is an Erotic Romance novel and contains mature subject matter. It is not intended for those under 18 years of age.***

Meadow

I was four years old when I learnt what evilness the world could bring. I fought through life with my scarred soul, wrangled through the dark empty nights where I’d pray I didn’t wake up the next morning. I would shut my eyes and mentally take myself to my happy place.

Red roses

The sound of waves crashing on the sand under my feet.

The final time the cold blade pushed up against my thigh, and I waited for my blood to trickle over the other One hundred and thirty-six scars that covered my skin— never came. Who was this man who just saved me? He had no idea how close I came to ending myself that day. I was ready to blow my brains all over the bedroom walls and I had a nine sitting under my pillow to prove it.

Beast

Some people have families, I had engineered human killing machines surrounding me my whole life. I’d been a part of this unit since I was a baby, raised in a community that was shut off from the real world. A community where we were nothing but empty vessels, until Hella (my best friend) and I escaped. Hella took us to a girl who was in foster care with him before he was summoned into The Army. After finding out yet another complication in my life, I needed space. I booked in to a run down apartment, ready to clear my head. Only my head didn’t clear, because I was haunted every night from the screams that would vibrate through my walls.

This is not a story of a perfect man coming in to save the day. This is a story of what happens when fate interferes and two completely broken souls collide.

*Potential triggers lie within this book.

Genre: Contemporary Romance 
  Release Date: July 29, 2016
Blurb
She’s everything he wants. Even when she can’t see it.After her last relationship ended in the hospital, Lainey Eversman ditched Ohio to start fresh in a sleepy North Carolina town. Her tiny apartment above the Drunken Duck may be cramped, but she’s ready to let her big dreams erase those bad memories.

When she sprains her ankle, she reluctantly accepts Chris Harper’s help to cut her last few ties to Ohio, though she dares not accept anything else from the sexy architect. The last thing she can trust is her instincts when it comes to men.

Chris knew the fiery Lainey was his one and only the moment he set eyes on her. If only she’d let him get closer than arm’s length. But their trip to Ohio cracks the walls shielding her vulnerability, and she finally, hesitantly, takes that last step into his arms.

It’s still going to be tough to convince her to give love a fighting chance—especially with an ex who won’t take “go away” for an answer.

Warning: Contains a small-town hero who’ll do anything to convince a skittish big-city girl that he’s a safe bet. Expect loyal friendships, sweet kisses, and hot, dirty sex in the great outdoors.

Excerpt

Chapter One

The idyllic countryside of Lainey Eversman’s new home left a lot to be desired when you were under attack by mutant country spiders. Four weeks ago she’d purchased ten lakeside acres in the lush mountains of North Carolina. Currently she was standing on a rickety kitchen chair swatting at a horde of massive spiders crawling through a crack in her cabin’s ceiling. All the while wishing desperately she’d never left the confines of city life.

She was trying admirably to not freak out like a total pansy, but when a shower of leggy spiders fell in her hair she gave up the fight. Giving a little squeak she launched herself from the old wooden chair and began to dance around like a lunatic while brushing her hands madly through her hair.

After a brief tussle with her own ego, she finally gave up and headed for a real shower. The kind with water and soap. No one had to know she’d nearly had a meltdown over a few spiders. Those ten acres, so happily purchased a few weeks ago, had come with a tiny hunting cabin. One room encompassing a very small and formerly very dirty shower, a toilet, a kitchen sink the size of her favorite pair of shoes, and a mini fridge fresh out of the box, all in a twelve-by-twelve room.

At the time it had seemed like the perfect place to hang tight while she had a place built. In retrospect she should have taken her brother and his girlfriend up on the offer to make use of their guest room until the build was completed. She loved both Cal and Molly, but she had little interest in finding them in compromising positions all over the apartment. Given the pair of them, it would be near impossible to catch them doing anything but getting frisky.

The creepy cabin in the middle of nowhere was her home for the duration. It wasn’t so bad, aside from the bugs, the smothering summer heat, and the incessant nature noise. No one ever told her living in the sticks was loud. Since her first week in the cabin she’d been serenaded nightly by an orchestra of bullfrogs, crickets, and assorted evening critters. Every morning the birds woke her at first light. Eventually she’d adjust to the nature sounds, but to date she’d been averaging about six hours a night; not really enough to feel rested. Altogether leaving her just a little bit cranky from lack of sleep.

In theory living alone surrounded by nature was an amazing retreat, but in reality it was quite the adjustment for a city girl leaping into the next stage of her life.

After scrubbing all the spider particles from every square inch of her body she exited the shower and tossed on a pair of simple cotton panties and the thinnest tank top she could find. It was a beautiful August evening, but the heat of the day hadn’t dissipated enough to leave Lainey comfortable. The heat and humidity left her feeling sticky the moment she toweled off from the shower.

Being a half-mile down a winding lane in the middle of nowhere had its perks. Sitting on her miniscule porch in her underwear with her feet propped up was definitely one of them.

Well, until she saw a car’s lights turn off the main road and make its way toward the cabin. It could only be a handful of people. Her brother Cal, Cal’s girlfriend Molly, or more likely Chris. Chris the hottie architect that she’d met through Cal and Molly, who was contracted to redesign the coffee shop she’d purchased.

Given the light glow of a near full moon, Lainey guessed it to be nearly ten. Rather late for a business meeting. Finally, she determined it was Chris, as his sleek black car eased slowly closer until it was nearly ready to park next to her own car on the far side of the porch. Lost in her own thoughts, she was about to greet the hottie architect in her panties.

Dammit.

Launching herself to her feet in an effort to reach the front door of the cabin before Chris cleared the porch was easier said than done. In her rush she almost crushed a cricket with a poorly placed foot. Attempting to save the cricket’s life, Lainey lurched to the left and managed to trip over her own feet. Landing in an inelegant pile, she watched the cricket hop away unharmed.

As she was attempting to right herself Chris stepped into view and halted his progress at the foot of the porch.

Excerpt

Angie stretched, and for the first time in days, it hardly hurt at all. Okay, it still hurt like a bitch, but she wasn’t going to admit it. She had plans. Admitting she was hurting was not going to get her what she wanted. She threw off the covers and meandered into the kitchen.

“That smells really good, what is it?”

“Chicken stir-fry and noodles.”

Her mouth watered. She slid by him, a lot closer than necessary, to grab a water glass out of the cupboard.

“Let me get that.” He handed her the glass, and lightly touched her waist in the process.

She put her hand on top of his. “You can press harder. I’m not made of glass.” She grinned.

Finn frowned. “Are you trying to tell me you’re not in pain still? Because I’m not buying it. I’ve had broken ribs.”

“Just one rib is broken. One,” she reminded him. “And my waist is fine.”

“I saw your hip.”

Angie pressed her finger to his lips. “I just wanted some water.” He raised an eyebrow. “Okay, and to brush up against you. I am doing better, except my neediness level is off the chart.”

He gently cupped her hips and brought her closer. She felt his heat, his strength, his desire. She wiggled against his erection. He hissed in a breath. “My neediness level is pretty damn high too. I think it needs to be measured.”

Angie blinked, and threw back her head and laughed. He moved, thrust his fingers into her hair, and drew her in for a kiss, the likes of which she had never experienced. His lips were a hard, hungry wonder making her open and beg for more.

His tongue swirled in, and her head spun with carnal bliss. She sucked him deeper, scraping him with her teeth, enjoying the growl that sent ripples to her core. He plunged in again, and she nipped his tongue. His large hand gripped her ass causing her nipples to harden and her pussy to weep. She jerked away, her eyes wide.

“Bedroom.” Was that husky purr her voice?

Her Boy Scout kissed the top of her head and turned to make sure all the burners were off. Then she was in his arms, and he was striding to her room.

“It smells like a strawberry field in here, but I know one thing that will smell even better.” She froze. Oh, he was not going to be like any of the polite Southern-Boy lovers of her past.

He set her down beside the bed. She crossed her arms in front so she could take off her blouse.

“Oh no, I get to unwrap my present.”

“Faster this way.” Then she did a stupid thing and tried to hurry, wincing in pain as she pulled off her top.

“Dammit, Angie,” came the muffled roar. “We do this my way, or not at all. Are we clear?”

“Yes, sir.” Would he stop if she saluted? No, he wouldn’t, not with the way he stared at her cleavage. Thank God for the power of boobs.

“You’re beautiful.”

“You’ve seen me before. As a matter of fact, I wasn’t wearing a bra.”

He looked up at her and shook his head. “That can be easily rectified.” Finn unclasped her bra and peeled it down her arms. Then he knelt in front of her, and cupped both breasts, and licked a nipple. Her legs lost all strength, and she would have fallen except for his fast action. He had her lying on the bed and stripped out of her slacks and panties in under a minute.

“Beautiful,” he reiterated.

Angie was still trembling from the one caress. He pulled his shirt off with that manly over the back, one armed tug, and she finally got to see the most gorgeous chest she had ever seen in her life. She held out her arms.

***

Angie still had bruising on her hip, and her ribcage was still wrapped with tape.. In no way, shape or form did it detract from her beauty. But it did make him very conscious of the fact that the formidable Angie Donatelli needed to be treated like spun glass.

“Now, Finn,” she commanded. That stopped him. What? She expected him to climb on board? What kind of lovers had she had in the past? He cupped her ankle and then trailed the backs of his fingers up the inside of her leg. Higher and higher, closer and closer to the bare mound that beckoned like a candle at midnight.

She squirmed, and parted her legs further so he was tempted, and finally he was there. Just a touch and she gasped his name. Delicate flesh he had to taste and savor. He needed this closeness like he needed his next breath. Finn nuzzled, and licked, as she shuddered and sighed. Carefully, he coaxed her over the edge, exalting in her cry of pleasure.

“Now, Finn,” she pleaded. He stepped off the bed and shucked his jeans, then grabbed a condom. He laid down beside her and gathered her close. She was trembling, and so was he. For the first time in months, he was close to finding something he needed, something clean and pure. She turned in his arms.

All pleading was gone. Her fingers traced his cheekbones. She kissed his forehead. His eyelids, his lips. She was killing him. “You’ve given me so much, Finn. You don’t see it. But I’ve never had someone stand beside me and want to protect me before.”

“I don’t understand,” he whispered. Her skin was so soft as he touched the shell of her ear.

“Of course, you don’t. Because you’re just being Finn Crandall. You’re the man I’m coming to love.” Finn froze, and had to have felt it. “Damn, too much, too soon, wasn’t it? How about the man I’m coming to lust?” She gave him a cheeky grin, and he his heart lurched. Ginger had made love a four letter word, he needed to reclaim it.

“Love, Angie. I like the word love a whole lot better. Lust is good, but love is what’s happening in this room—in this bed.”

“Then why did you tense up?”

“Bad memories. But you’re chasing them away.”

“I’m glad. Do you want to talk about it?” Her brown eyes a soft liquid brown.

He needed another kind of intimacy right then. “Later, I want this kind of love, first.” He bent down and parted her lips with his. The flavor of strawberries exploded across his senses. She stroked him with one hand, while the other pulled the condom wrapper from his hand.

“I can’t wait, I need you.” Her thumb glided over his tip, and he was close to losing it.

“Slow, I need this to last. We only have one first time, Lady, I want to savor it.”

Her breath hitched, and she kissed his chin. He brushed the arch of her brow, and gazed into her eyes. Then he stroked downward until he was once again cupping her breast, rolling her nipple to a swollen point.

“So good,” she sighed softly, was there pain in her sigh? He bent, and took the crest in his mouth, holding her gently down on the bed, and forcing her to keep still for his ministrations.

“Let me move.”

“No. It hurts you.”

“Staying still hurts more.”

She had so much to learn. He squeezed, and she cried out. “Just lie there and enjoy this. I need to touch you, please you. I can’t stand the thought of you in pain.” He tenderly clasped her delicate flesh, loving how her breath caught.

“Again.”

He obliged, and then his thumb rasped over her nipple, again and again. She made a small move, and he stopped.

“Finn?”

“You move and I stop, that’s the game.”

“I don’t like that game.” He softly grasped her nipple with his teeth, and she shrilled with pleasure as his tongue worked the nub. The moment she moved he stopped.

“I. Hate. This. Game.”

“I don’t want you to be in pain.”

“There’s a part of me that is painfully achy. Painfully empty.” She smiled. He licked her nipple one last time, and then kissed her beautiful smile. She drew him in, he gloried in the closeness and realized she was right. He found the wrapper, and she helped to get the protection in place, doubling the amount of time it took with four hands attempting the task.

Their laughter filled the bedroom, then they looked at one another and realized the moment had finally come.

“Finn?” her voice trembled.

“I have you.” Had it ever been more important? He watched her languid expression of joy as he slowly slid home. She tried to lift, but he held her still. “Just squeeze baby.” He felt her clutch, and sweat broke out all over his body. She gave him a dazed smile as she clenched in a sweet rhythm with his every thrust.

“This is incredible,” she breathed.

“It’s you. You take my breath away, Lady.” Faster, but still careful, he moved. She gripped him tighter and made the sweetest sounds of passion. Her nails dug into his ass, as she pushed upwards, and he thrust harder and faster, loving her tight pulsing.

He watched as her eyes glazed over and she started to tremble. He continued his loving strokes, and watched as she flew, then he followed. When he came back to himself, he realized he had finally found redemption.
