Trashy Foreplay

Gemma James
1

Never flirt with temptation.

Never lust after what I can’t have.

And never, under any circumstances, screw a married man again.

By the time this story is told, I’ll have failed at all three…

With my heart and reputation in ruins, I can’t afford to make another mistake. Boarding a flight to Seattle is supposed to give me a clean slate, but from the moment Cash Montgomery slides into the seat next to mine, I’m captivated by his steel eyes that see too much. I ache for this stranger in a way I’ve never ached for anyone.

But I didn’t know he was married, and I sure as hell didn’t see the curveball fate had in store. My clean slate in Seattle isn’t so clean after all because my new boss is the man forbidden to me.

And the only man I want.

The only man I’ll do anything for, even if it means breaking the promise I made to myself when I fled my old life in shame.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for a married man, but I did.

Book 2
Life is twisted and cruel.

After being ripped from the safe haven of Rafe’s arms, my kidnapper is waging a sick game. Unable to make my body do his bidding, he’s using mental warfare instead.

I’ll go through hell to get back to Rafe, but I’m unprepared for what I find.

He’s done what I can’t: he’s erased eight years of pain and betrayal. I don’t know how to bring him back to me, because bringing him back means ripping him to shreds all over again.

Book 1
I was fifteen when I sent the love of my life to prison for a crime he didn’t commit.

Rafe Mason.

Rising MMA star.

My brother’s best friend.

The guy I destroyed with a single lie.

Now eight years have passed, and Rafe is free. And he only wants one thing.

Me, at his mercy.

And I am. I’m a prisoner on his island, held captive by his deviant desires, bound by his justified fury. Even worse, I’m a hostage of my own treacherous heart.

But Rafe is a man obsessed.

A man whose darkness is bigger than the both of us.

A man who will stop at nothing to get the answers he deserves.

Even if it means breaking me.

Book 3
I never imagined things could get worse, but they do. The men who took us have no mercy. They won’t stop until they’ve destroyed Rafe for something he has no memory of, and I’m their weapon of choice.

Tortured and defiled, they make me wish I was back in that cabin where death was favorable to drawing another breath, but our captors can’t break what’s already broken.

What scares me is the madness I see festering inside Rafe.

I’ve taken his freedom, his career, his reputation, yet despite all I’ve done, he’s determined to fight for me, kill for me, give everything he is for me. He’ll even die for me.

“This book was the perfect conclusion to one of my favorite dark series…possibly the darkest series I’ve read thus far.

“This book is so many levels of dark, but it’s so beautifully written and put together.” — Melissa, Alpha Book Club

“We get the same beautifully disturbed Rafe that we saw in TORRENT, the one that imprisoned and demeaned Alex in a cold cell in the basement of a house that was surrounded by water….the same Rafe that totally annihilated Alex’s walls and made her understand that yes, she does like the kinky effery…and that it’s ok, as long as it’s with him.” — Rachel, Bound By Books

Gemma James
One lie. One act of revenge. One obsessive love.

I was only fifteen when I sent the love of my life to prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Rafe Mason, rising MMA star, my brother’s best friend, and the guy my foolish heart yearned for—the guy my foolish heart won’t forget even now that eight years have gone by. But now he’s free and only wants one thing: me at his mercy.

And I am.

I’m a prisoner on his island, a willing captive to his deviant desires, bound by his justified fury. Even worse, I’m a hostage of my own treacherous heart. But the lie I told eight years ago is ricocheting, destroying lives and altering the course of fate. Neither of us saw it coming.

The violence and death. The betrayal. The utter destruction that leaves us in ruins.

How can a single lie cause so much devastation? Redemption seems impossible because neither of us can undo what’s been done. I belong to him as much as he belongs to me, and we’ll fight for each other or go down in flames trying.

The Condemned series bundle includes Torrent, Rampant, Fervent, and Vagrant. Intended for mature readers who enjoy a psychological dark romance thriller with kidnapping and other disturbing themes. Not for the faint of heart. You’ve been warned.
