It was supposed to be just for the summer…
Some people just don’t belong together, or at least that’s what the world would have them believe.
Reese Westfield comes from a world of old money, country clubs, cotillions, and expensive cars. She’s tired of dating Warren McCarthy just to make her father happy. Reese has long since had her eye on someone else, and this summer she’s determined to make it happen.
Growing up in Lake Loveless there has always been a strict monetary divide—there was the rest of the Lake and then there were the Waterman’s. Ace Waterman has worked for everything he has, and he doesn’t have a lot. He breaks his back doing grunt work while putting himself through college. He’s used to life passing him by.
Reese has loved Ace from afar for as long as she can remember. The summer of her freshman year she comes home with plans to land Ace in her bed at least for a few short weeks, and, if she’s lucky, forever.
Ace has loved Reese for as long as he can remember, but their friendship has never graduated beyond platonic, so when Reese comes home from her first year away and proposes the two of them have a summer fling, Ace is quick to comply. The rules: no strings, no expectations, just something hotter than the sun to set the sheets on fire.
But when their worlds collide, and neither of them is willing to admit to having true feelings, it becomes clear to Ace he’s nothing more than a dirty little secret—that the summer fling was just something meaningless to pass the time.
Reese wonders if she can ever stop trying to please her father, and it’s only through her mother’s letters that she finds the answers she truly seeks, but will they be the ones she wants to hear?
As summer draws to a close, Ace and Reese are still very much enraptured even though the time has come to douse the flame and move on—but neither one of them is prepared to leave this BEAUTIFUL OBLIVION.
*Beautiful Illusions (Beautiful Oblivion 2) is now available!
Everything I once believed has disintegrated.
It is all over.
But this is not the end.
The world, once young and bright, has lost its vigor, the borders of which have become grievous and tenebrous. There is no greater ache, no sharper deception than to see the one who holds your heart—holds the blade with which to kill you. It is a nightmare within a nightmare to learn the soul you melded over your own is the one who looks to destroy everything you hold near and dear. There is no greater agony than to have the scales fall from your eyes and reveal the one you grafted your life to has been the one to fear all along.

Beautiful Illusions (Beautiful Oblivion 2)
Finding a beautiful, yet mouthy, woman in my home is always a nice surprise. Now to figure out who she is—I already know what she wants.
I fell in love hard and fast. As quick as she came into my world she was gone. Demi said she has secrets—that she’s done horrible things. Who hasn’t? I’m not going to let the past determine our future. Sometimes love lays forever at your feet and sometimes you need to fight for it. Demi is worth every damn battle we’ll have to go through. I’d take on the world just to keep her safe. And, knowing what I do about her, I just might have to. All I need with Demi is one more night to convince her we’re worth it. And that one night is going to cost me everything.
Beautiful Elixir (Beautiful Oblivion 3)
Caleb McCarthy is more than obnoxious, and as much as I hoped I would never see him again something in me demands to have him.
Kennedy is mine. Too many tortured years have gone by without her, and I'm not about to let another one slip by. There's nothing that's going to keep us apart this time, not my psychotic family, not hers, not the tornado that's ripping through her life or the one that's ripping through mine. I want to open up my heart, tell her everything I've done, but that's the one thing I can never do. Some things in life are best left unsaid.
