What happens when the legend you love, becomes the man you hate?

 

CAMILLA:

Do I love Rhett Steele? Absolutely not.
Do I like Rhett Steele? Not even close.
Do I hate Rhett Steele? Yes.
This is the man who destroyed my world, shattering my dreams the very first time I met him. It’s like he purposely pushes buttons I don’t even realize exist. I wouldn’t live with him if he were the last man on earth. Then how did he end up being my newest most hated roommate?

 

RHETT:

My singing career is tanking, my fans are turning against me, and I’m told I need to clean up my image. I should have done it with America’s sweetheart on my arm. But what’s the fun in that? Instead, I turn to the woman who hates me more than anyone. I’ve already hit rock bottom, I can only go up from here, or so I thought.

Release Blitz: ‘Can You Hear It’ by Casey Diam

Title: Can You Hear It
Series: Alpen Springs #1
Author: Casey Diam
Genre: Mature YA/New Adult Romance
Release Date: August 1, 2019
Blurb

Secrets.

Deceptions.

Tragedies.

Those were the root of all evil. One of those became the root of mine the day I lost the love of my life. My best friend. My lover.

Everyone disregarded it, saying, “Let’s face it, Averie, you have the rest of your life ahead of you.” They were wrong. James Lawrence was my ever after . . . until Ashton.

If only he didn’t come bearing his own brand of evil.

A secret.

The reason he wanted me to stay away.

I should have listened, and he should have tried harder, but both of us failed.

And if we hadn’t, if he had told me when we first met, would it have altered the moment I realized that I was falling for him?

The slight variation in the air. The hitch in my breath. The lightness in my chest.

Impossible to know; I’d already fallen.

I was already ruined.

 

***A standalone sports romance that takes place in senior year high school. Due to explicit content, this book is suitable for 17+

Excerpt

CHAPTER 1

 

I peered into his caramel-colored eyes, my hands running up his jaw. “You’re going to do great today.”

A chill breeze passed around James and me, and I shivered. He tugged me closer, a charming smile pulling at his lips.

He caught my long hair in his hands, carrying it over my shoulders to curtain my face as he leaned against his car. “I love you.”

“Lawrence!” someone called, and his gaze shifted to the sound while I kept my eyes on him. He looked uncertain, exhausted almost.

“You okay?”

“Yeah.” He kissed my forehead.

“Lawrence, come on! We got a game to win, dude.” Ben winked at me from across the high school’s parking lot, a lopsided grin on his face and his duffel bag slung over one shoulder. “You can snuggle with your sweetie later. Hey, Averie.”

Smiling, I lifted a hand and waved before giving James Lawrence, my number nineteen, one last hug.

He squeezed me. “See you in a bit. You’ll be getting a winning kiss tonight. I can feel it.” He grinned, and I chewed on the smile that stretched across my lips as I watched him go before turning around.

My best friends, Nicky and Sydney, would be here soon, but as I scanned the nearby vehicles and the people walking through the gates to the football field, I realized that they were nowhere in sight. Instead of waiting, I headed to the gates and showed my student ID to the teacher responsible for the ticketing tonight.

A few people were already were scattered across the metal seats on the bleachers, most of them being parents. Once I got there, I climbed up to sit on the far-left side and pulled James’s hoodie over my head.

The crowd would multiply soon and everyone would be shoulder to shoulder. Because in Alpen Springs, Colorado, a small mountain city with a population of about sixteen thousand, this was one of the main sources of entertainment.

What felt like minutes later, James ran out onto the field. Moments later, I began to tense.

Our football team wasn’t the best, but we weren’t the worst either. And as time flew by, the former was clear, because now, at almost an hour into this game, things weren’t looking too good for us.

I shifted on the bench, my feet tapping restlessly as I waited with bated breath for the second half of the game to kick off.

James was so competitive and hated losing, so I really wanted our team to win tonight.

We were still down by fourteen points at the end of the third quarter when it became so noisy I could barely hear what Sydney was saying to me.

“I . . . didn’t think . . . catch up . . . win!”

The gist of it was clear enough—we had a chance. We’d caught up, and everyone on the bleachers was just as anxious as the players. Night had fallen upon us so fast that everything outside of the field was dark, non-existent. Kind of like everything was beyond the finite views that surrounded us due to the mountain peaks and hills in every direction.

I loved it here.

Alpen Springs was fresh air and freedom.

I inhaled and caught a whiff of marijuana.

Damn it.

Regretting the disturbance of said fresh air, I covered my nose with the sleeves of my hoodie. The no-smoking rule became muddied at night, because with a crowd like this, it would be impossible to find the culprit.

As everyone grew quiet, I glanced at the scoreboard.

With one minute and forty seconds remaining in the game, we were only down by one point.

Come on.

I bit my lip as the line of scrimmage formed at the thirty-five-yard line in the Hollis territory, Alpen Springs North on the offense.

Our quarterback got the ball and shuffled to the side before hurling the football to James. He caught it and took off running as a chant broke out behind me, around me.

“Lawrence, Lawrence, Lawrence!”

My eyes followed James as he ran, did a three-sixty-degree turn, escaping two of the defenses from the other team who stumbled trying to tackle him. Then he was a lone figure running down the field and straight into the end zone for a sixty-five-yard touchdown.

Jumping out of my seat, I screamed, “Yes! Oh my God!” Barely able to hear myself as the crowd went wild.

That was exactly how long the excitement lasted, because in the next second . . . my life would change forever.

Excerpt

She pulls her feet away, tucking them beneath her, and props an arm on the back of the couch. After brushing a wayward curl from my forehead, she meets my eyes again. “What is going on in your head tonight? Talk to me, Tris.”

“I’m trying.”

“Start with telling me why you made me promise not to date without talking to you first.”

Reaching forward, I caress her cheek, and she leans into my touch. “Date me next.”

I use the tone she calls the commanding one, and her eyes dilate. Fuck . . . it really does turn her on. How did I never notice that?

“Tristan, that’s a really bad idea.”

“Why?”

“Why? For starters, you’re my best friend.”

“Exactly.” I weave my fingers into her hair, and she moves closer to me. “If it doesn’t work, we’ll be fine, I promise. I won’t let this get in the way of our friendship.”

“You say that now but—”

I bring my finger to her lips to silence her. “No buts; we’ve been through so much already. We can handle seven dates.”

“You’re assuming you’ll make it to the seventh date.” As I smile, she gasps. “That’s why you made me promise.”

I’m about to lay all my cards on the table. “Yes. Bexley, I want my chance to win your heart.”

Her eyes close for a long moment, but my hand is still at the base of her neck, my fingers entwined in her curls. “I’m scared, Tris. What if you do something that’s a deal breaker?”

“That’s always a possibility, but if I do it in the first six dates, you have to let it go. If I do it on the seventh, well, that’s a risk I’m willing to take, I suppose. Either way, nothing is going to come between us. Nothing.”

The air snaps between us. This has become a defining moment in our relationship, but it’s one I think, deep down, we both knew was inevitable.

“Would tonight count as our first date?” She still hasn’t opened her eyes.

“That depends. Do you kiss on your first dates?”

Her eyes finally snap open, and I’m met with a lust-filled gaze. Damn, I’ve never seen this look on her, but now I don’t ever want to see her without it. “Sometimes, I do.”

“Well, if you want a kiss good night, then we can count this as our first date. Otherwise, tomorrow can be our first date.”

The rise and fall of her chest becomes noticeable as her breathing intensifies. She squirms, and I realize she’s turned on. Part of me wants her to say no, this isn’t our first date, because I’d love for it to be special to her. But another part of me wants to take her mouth with mine and kiss her until morning.

“Are you a good kisser?” she whispers, inching even closer to me. Bexley watches intently as I lick my lips ever so slightly, moistening what I want to give her.

“I’ve never had any complaints, but there’s always a first time for everything.” I cup the back of her neck and pull her closer to me—so close, she’s only a whisper from my lips. “It’s your call. What do you want to do?”

She moves forward and presses her lips tentatively against mine. In the course of every relationship, there is a make-or-break moment, and this one is ours—I feel it to my core as her apricot scent envelops me. I’m a lost cause.

“First date it is,” I whisper against them before wrapping my free arm around her waist and pulling her even closer.
