Alyssa Myers has worked her entire life to distance herself from the luxurious and privileged lifestyle in which she was raised. Running her non-profit agency, The Haven, Alyssa is content to spend her days helping abused animals find sanctuary, which fulfills her in a way money can’t buy.
Maybe Alyssa recognizes some of the same characteristics in Brody that she sees in her homeless wards. Or maybe she just sees his struggle to surface from the darkness, but Alyssa is powerless to stop her personal quest to make Brody whole again.
When secrets are uncovered, Brody has to decide if he’s going to give in to the darkness or accept the light that Alyssa offers him.
Best Friend Rule #1: never want the guy’s sister.
Six months ago, I broke off my engagement because I was tired of not even being a distant second to my fiancé’s career.
Which is why Trent Salway, my brother’s best friend, is strictly forbidden.
One workaholic in my life is more than enough, thank you.
We’ll just ignore how I’ve been secretly crushing on him for as long as I can remember.
The problem? My best friend—Trent’s sister—is determined to find me Mr. Right.
Before being deployed on a Navy SEAL mission, my best friend makes one simple request:
I’m supposed to make sure that his sister Kelsey isn’t dating any assholes while he’s away.
Doesn’t sound too hard, right?
Living up to my promise includes crashing at least one blind date—not my finest moment, I might add—and spending more and more time with Kelsey.
Sparks fly between us, as do a few items of clothing.
Now, I have to decide what to do about the woman I’m falling for—the one whose brother will take me down faster than he takes down the enemy.
And I have to decide if I can be something other than a workaholic or if Kelsey is decidedly off limits.
From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.
Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right?
Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me.
When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.
The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.
The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.
I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.
The worst part? He didn’t come alone.
I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection.
The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.
