Rough is a sexy new adult romantic suspense with a strong-and-silent-type hero...
I'm a cautionary tale. A statistic. A victim. A single teenage mother from the poor part of town. Most of the time I'm too busy working and struggling to care what people think. Survival doesn't come easy.
I have a dark secret, a pressure valve, a rare moment just for myself. On these nights I visit a club. There I find men who give me what I need. Men who aren't afraid to take what they want.
Men like Colin.
But he takes more than a few stolen hours. He demands more than my body. He wants my heart and soul--my happily ever after. I never thought I'd be Cinderella. I never thought a man that rough could be my prince.
"This is a book you MUST read if you like gritty, edgier romance that makes you think as well as turns you on." ~ Cari Quinn, USA Today Bestselling Author
