SALEM

Just some fun. Just one night of reckless, harmless, wild fun.

That’s what I told myself the night I hooked up with quite possibly the sexiest guy I’ve ever known. Only, I didn’t want to KNOW him. Life is a series of temporary situations, or so it’s always been for me. A future revolves around the next move, but I’m still the type to live in the moment on a seldom occasion, consequences be damned.

Unless that moment happens to be unknowingly landing in bed with my brand new stepbrother. The universe is a mean, twisted jerk. And one consequence is that I have to be around him and get to know him. The worst consequence is the fact that Maverick Sterling, the infamous playboy who can’t possibly be tamed, is really hard not to want more of once you’ve had a taste. So long as I’m not stupid enough to fall in love, it shouldn’t be a big deal. Right?

MAVERICK

My life has been blissfully simple for a really long time. I have a routine. I have friends. I have family. Yet everyone seems to have less and less time, since they’re all sort of trying to be adults or what the hell ever. I blame them for the fact the only girl to ever ditch me without a backward glance is suddenly under my skin. I blame my father for the fact she’s a new fixture in my life. Not that I knew that before I got a little overly friendly with my new stepsister. I mean, what are the odds? It shouldn’t have been possible.

But it happened. It figures the one girl I can’t get out of my head is the one girl who doesn’t want to be with me. At least in my head she’s the only girl who doesn’t want to be with me, because I tend to be arrogant like that. The point is, now she’s everywhere I turn, yet she’s marking a line in the sand that she thinks I really won’t cross.

Obviously she doesn’t know me at all.

Excerpt

With a quick squeeze of his ass, she let him go, hopping up on the counter to watch him make the cookies, reaching across to stick her finger in the bowl to sneak a taste once he’d gotten all the ingredients mixed.Narrowing his eyes, he pointed at her with the spoon.  “Watch it.  I might have to punish you for that.”

“Oh, are you going to spank me?”

He chuckled, low and growly, shaking his head.  “Uh-uh.  I was thinking more like a thorough tongue-lashing.”

She shivered, rubbing her thighs together.  Then she leaned forward deliberately, her shirt gaping to tease him with a glimpse of her breasts, and she scooped up as much dough as she could on her index finger before bringing it to her mouth, licking it from palm to tip before sticking it in her mouth and sucking.

And the semi he’d been sporting since she got there turned into a raging hard-on.

He let out a groan, and she smiled around her finger, sucking on it and drawing it out from between her lips with a pop.

“I think I can get behind a tongue-lashing.”

“Coming right up.”  Reaching down, he adjusted himself, her eyes zeroing in on his actions, her tongue darting out to lick her lips.  “But you’ll have to wait until I get the first batch of cookies in the oven.”

“So mean.  Making me wait like this.”

He laughed, enjoying the verbal foreplay as much as the physical kind.  The cookies were irregular in size, but he couldn’t care less right now, his normal desire for precision swamped by his desire for her.  All he cared about was feeling her thighs around his head, her lips around his cock, her pussy gripping him as she came.  Fuck the damn cookies.  The only reason he went through with it was because he knew she was suffering as much as he was, maybe more, and the anticipation only heightened the release when it came.

Matt graduated in December after his final football season, and is now working a desk job.  Having spent his whole life as an athlete, the day to day grind chafes at him.  All his friends are moving on with relationships and pursuing their goals while he’s left as the third wheel.  And despite his reputation as a player, he’s the only one who ever wanted a girlfriend.

A past she can’t remember. A love he can’t forget.

 

After hitting rock bottom, Robert Newlin embraced sobriety and tried to live his life quietly and alone at his family’s lake cottage. Blaming himself for the accident that claimed his wife and unborn baby, he spent most of his time alone and grieving until Faith moved into the cottage next door.

 

Faith McMillan had no memory of her life before that day three years ago. The physical scars had faded but the emotional ones were still fresh and raw. Living rent-free seemed like a great way to finish her second book and would give her the time to figure out her next move. But then she met the reclusive guy next door.

 

Robbie and Faith – can two broken people who vowed to live their lives alone find happiness together?
