Letting Go-HighRes

Some people like a little chaos. Not Sarah. Growing up in a house of humiliating filth means she has three crystal-clear goals:

Get through college, however she can.
Keep her four-year-old sister away from her mom’s hoarding.
Never, never let disorder take over her life.
Of course, studying, working, and taking care of a toddler mean Sarah has no time for fun. Until she meets Zac.

He’s sweet, he’s funny, they have compatible plans for the zombie apocalypse. But Sarah can’t let him in. It’s not just his three drooly, sloppy dogs—with him in her life, the pristine future she’s working for would be shredded before you can say Down, boy!

Sometimes falling in love is really all about letting go.

╣Synopsis╠

It’s funny how a piece of paper can change your life-a diploma, a ticket . . . a plain, white envelope

For as long as I could remember, I was the girl with the plan. Good college, good medical school, good career. I would save lives instead of standing by helplessly, watching while they slipped away.

That was before my father called for the first time in fifteen years to tell me about the terminal illness stealing his life-an illness that might be stealing mine, too. It was before he gave me the name of a doctor and a plane ticket to Italy. Before I flew across an ocean. Before I realized how brilliantly bright life could be. Before I met Lucas.

He’s everything I’ve always wanted, and the timing couldn’t be worse. I can’t do this to him-he deserves so much better. My head tells me I can’t afford to fall in love with Lucas, but my heart won’t listen. Lucas is fearless about the future, while I’m not even sure I have one. There’s only one way to know what’s ahead and it’s waiting for me at home inside a plain, white envelope.

All I have to do, is open it . . .

Across the Distance

There’s a drawer I never open. It holds a picture I never look at. It reminds me of a day I hate to remember, but I’ll never forget.Across the Distance

I’d give anything to be like the other girls on campus. Going to parties, flirting with boys, planning for a future. But that’s not me. And hasn’t been since the day my parents died. The only thing that got me through was Griffin. Even though I didn’t have my family, I always had him. Only, now I’m not so sure I do.

It’s not just the eleven hundred miles separating us now that I’m at college. Or his band finally taking off, and all the gigs and girls suddenly demanding his time. It’s as if everything is different-the way we talk, the way we text . . . the way he looks at me and the way those looks make me feel.

Griffin has been the only good thing in my life since that horrific day. But I can feel our friendship slipping away-and I’m terrified of what will be left in its place . . .

Can’t Go Back

When Jillian moved next door, she refused to get out of the car. I climbed into the backseat beside her and promised to never leave her.APxoCAAAQBAJ

Now, I’m driving her a thousand miles away, so she can leave me. She has to go. What else would she do? Follow me and my band from one cheap bar to another, get hit on by sleazy promoters? Because Jillian would definitely get hit on. She’s the most gorgeous, talented girl I’ve ever known, and she doesn’t even see it.

This scholarship gives Jillian the chance to study at the best design school in the country. It’s what she’s always wanted. I won’t stand in the way of her dreams, no matter how much it hurts to watch her go. I just wish she wasn’t leaving without knowing the truth . . .

New Deal!

I’m excited to announce that a fourth book is coming in the College of Charleston series!

12325035_10154376747458916_922317893_n

I’ve been obsessed with watching the show Hoarders for a long time, and it’s been in the back of my head to write something that deals with this fascinating and heartbreak issue. Of course, part of my obsession comes from the fact that I can’t understand the mentality of someone who doesn’t know how to let go, so it only made sense for me to write from a family members perspective. I’m just excited that my editor at Lyrical, Alicia Condon, and my agent, Stacey Donaghy, are both thrilled about this idea as well!

╣Synopsis╠

  

When Sloane Avery stops to help a stranded driver, she finds more than a broken down car on the side of the road. Luke Evans is faster and sexier than her Maserati, but with her heart still on the mend, she’s not interested in taking him for a test drive. Despite their initial disdain for each other, emotion and passion simmer, complicating their fragile friendship. But when a tragic loss and devastating betrayal send them spiraling, their growing love isn’t enough to save them.

That was five years ago, practically a different lifetime and definitely a different Sloane. Before she’s been hardened by booze, sex, and as much distance as she could get from the past. Now, called home on a family emergency, she’s determined to hold onto her heart the next time she sees Luke.

Except Sloane’s not the only one who’s changed. Luke’s turned his life around. Only the reappearance of Sloane and the reminder of his biggest mistake can put a dent in his plans. Luke is set on fixing what he’s broken. But with her emotions boiling to the surface, Sloane needs to decide if falling in love is life’s greatest gift or its cruelest joke.

╣Excerpt╠

 

      By the time Friday rolled around I had talked myself into believing the whole thing with Liam was nothing serious. He’d invited me over to his place because Ryan had a date, which I took to mean he wanted to be alone with me. In my head, I was kind of picturing the evening being more like a booty call. We’d enjoy a quick romp in the sack while Ryan was out on his date, then order a pizza. Maybe go for round two if we had time.

      That wasn’t exactly what happened, though.

      When I got there, Liam answered the door with a big smile on his face and a dozen pink roses in his hand. It was adorable and definitely made my heart skip so many times I wondered if it was playing jump rope. He’d really thrown me off my game.

      “Wow,” I said, taking the bundle of roses and giving them a sniff. “I wasn’t expecting flowers.”

      “I noticed your mobile case was pink, so I thought you’d like the color.”

      Okay, so maybe it was a little cliché, but pink was my favorite color. And the fact that Liam had noticed was so sweet I found it difficult to speak. Which for me meant a lot. It also made him about a million times hotter, and made me want him about a billion times more. Go figure.

      Liam held the door open so I could go inside. He didn’t even make a move to kiss me, which totally blew because at that moment I was imagining sucking on his bottom lip.

      The guys didn’t have a table in their apartment, which was why I’d kind of figured Liam and I would be lying naked in bed with a box of pizza between us. There was, however, a small bar between the living room and kitchen. That’s where Liam had set out two plates and two wineglasses, along with a bottle of what appeared to be champagne. He even had a candle lit. And the apartment smelled a-maz-ing!

      “Did you cook?” I asked, standing in front of the bar with my mouth hanging open.

      I’d never had a guy buy me flowers before, and I definitely hadn’t thought for a second Liam would. Plus, he’d actually cooked. For me. It was like his body had been taken over by pod people.

      “Of course.” He grinned and picked up the bottle of champagne. “I invited you over for dinner. What did you expect, pizza?”

“Umm…yes?”

      Liam laughed and ripped the foil off the bottle. He turned it away from me while he worked on getting the cork out. The pop was so loud it made me jump, and the cork flew about three feet through the air before hitting the kitchen cabinet. I was kind of wishing he had aimed at me. Right at my head. Maybe the jolt would have helped me make sense of the situation, because I was totally confused.

      Liam filled the glasses and handed me one. “We have about fifteen minutes before dinner is ready.”

      I stared at the champagne in my hand and frowned. “You know you don’t have to get me drunk, right?”

      “What are talking about?” He paused with his glass halfway to his lips.

      Liam looked hurt, which made me feel like a total bitch. He’d gone to so much trouble with the whole thing, but I couldn’t even enjoy it because all I was thinking about was jumping his bones. Yeah, I was being a mega bitch.

      “I’m kidding.” I forced out a smile and held up the glass. “This is awesome. Thanks!”

      He relaxed and returned the smile, and we clinked our glasses together.

      Even though I didn’t get the booty call I’d been hoping for, the night was pretty sweet. Liam turned out to be a really good cook. He’d made spaghetti, which didn’t sound like a big deal until he revealed he’d made his own sauce. Color me impressed. Plus, he’d made the meatballs too.

      I was pretty full after stuffing my face full of Italian food, so I couldn’t eat dessert right away. Cheesecake drizzled with caramel, chocolate, and chopped pecans. Where the hell did this guy come from? While we waited for our food to digest, we sat in the living room and talked.

      “So you mentioned you have a sister. Any other siblings?” I asked, sipping the champagne. The bubbles tickled my lips and made me giggle.

      “Just the sister,” he said. “Half sister, really. We have different dads. My mum was married to Elisabeth’s dad for about ten years. They split up, but he’s still around. Treats me like a son too.”

      “What about your biological father? Does he live in England?”

      “No, actually. He lives in the States, which is why I’m here.”

      He took a drink of his own champagne while he studied me. I got the feeling he didn’t talk about his dad a whole lot and he was debating whether or not to tell me more. I honestly wasn’t sure how much I wanted him to share. I was really starting to like Liam—like him like him—and I was afraid if I got too attached, it would thwart some of my wilder plans for college life. I couldn’t really pick up guys in bars and go home with them if I was in a relationship.

      Plus, I’d promised Julie I wouldn’t settle down until I was a hundred years old. At least.

      Liam must have decided I was worth making himself vulnerable, because he said, “He has a place here, actually.”

      “Really? In Charleston?” It was a bit of a surprise since he hadn’t mentioned it before, but it explained why he was here. Kind of. He did say his dad was a jerk.

      Liam nodded. “Isle of Palms. You remember the beach house the frat party was at?”

      Was he kidding? How could I forget the beach house? Not only was it pretty much the nicest and most expensive building I’d ever set foot in, we’d shared a pretty amazing moment in that upstairs bedroom. Just thinking about it made my body shiver with pleasure.

      I put my hand on his leg and smiled up at him. “I remember very specific things about the beach house.”

      “You did seem to have a pretty brilliant time.” Liam flashed me a lopsided grin that showed off those adorably crooked teeth of his. God, was I glad his mom never got him braces.

      “It wasn’t nearly enough, trust me.” I ran my fingers gently up his thigh.

      Liam cleared his throat and shifted his whole body until he was sitting almost out of my reach. My hand was still on his knee at least. “You know you’re making it bloody difficult for me to turn over a new leaf, right?”

      “I like your old leaf,” I said, flashing him a pout.

      “Right.” Liam chuckled and shook his head. “That house belongs to my dad.”

      My hand froze on his leg. There weren’t many things that could have distracted me from all the dirty thoughts going through my head, but that was definitely one of them.

      “Your dad owns that mansion on the beach?”

      “He may be a tosser, but he happens to be a very rich tosser. He’s why I came here, really. He threw my mum money over the years, but it wasn’t much. She couldn’t pay for me to go to uni, and it was either beg my dad for the money or work my own way through. I really wanted to tell him to sod off, but I felt like he owed me. Anyway, he agreed to pay my way, but only if I came here. Said he wanted to get to know me. Maybe he’s gone soft in his old age, I don’t know. Whatever the reason, I saw it as my only option.”

      “So he’s not a total tosser then?” I loved all the British slang, so was sure to emphasize the word.

      Liam chuckled again. “No, I guess he’s not a total tosser.”

      I mulled the whole thing over as I emptied my glass. Liam wanted to turn over a new leaf. His dad was a prick and he didn’t want to be that way, which I could understand and even respect. But what did that mean for us? He’d made me dinner, bought me flowers, and opened up to me all in one night. It was starting to feel dangerously close to girlfriend territory.

      Which was something I was going to have to get a handle on real soon.

      I set my glass on the table, then took his and did the same. He eyed me as I scooted closer to him, as if he was afraid I was going to attack. Of course, he was right to be concerned. I was going to attack, and I wanted things to go my way for a change.

      I leaned closer, waiting for him to make a move to kiss me or stop me from kissing him. The conflict in his eyes was obvious. He thought it was a bad idea. Unfortunately for him, I thought it was pretty much the best idea I’d had in a very long line of great ideas.

      “Let me thank you for dinner,” I said, moving until our faces were less than an inch apart.

      We were so close I could see little specks of brown in his eyes. My nose grazed his and he sucked in a deep breath. His very intense gaze moved down to my mouth. Then his lips brushed against mine and he closed his eyes. I followed his lead, squeezing my eyes shut as our mouths moved together. Quickly. So fast it took my breath away. Liam thrust his tongue into my mouth and slid his hand up my back, gripping my neck. Not just holding me there, but pulling me closer to him. Like he might never be able to get enough.

╣Excerpt╠

 

     

      “I don’t want to go crazy, Cami. I just want to experience the normal things teenagers experience. While I’m still a teenager. I’ll be nineteen next month, and I haven’t done anything! I have one year.”

      Cami nodded as a slow smile spread across her face. “Kind of like a bucket list for your teen years.”

      I grinned and my wet hair bounced around when I nodded emphatically. “Exactly!”

      Cami jumped to her feet and started pacing the room. “That I can help with! But we should start a list right now. Write it all down, so we can mark it off as we go.”

      My insides jumped and fired to life, and I got to my feet too. “That’s a great idea.”

      Cami grabbed a notebook and flipped it open, then grabbed a pink Sharpie. At the top of the paper she scribbled Annie’s Bucket List. “Okay, what’s first?”

      I chewed on my bottom lip and ran my hand through my damp hair. “Let’s start small. Buy makeup.”

      Cami nodded and jotted it down, then said, “And some new clothes and shoes. Girly stuff.”

      She wrote down, buy a dress and heels and I inwardly cringed. Wearing heels seemed a bit unrealistic, but I was determined to do this. Even if I fell out of my shoes and broke my arm in the process.

      “Get highlights,” I said.

      Cami giggled while she wrote. “With your hair, I’d get lowlights.”

      I nodded even though I had no idea what she was talking about. She’d know better than me.

      Cami looked up and raised an eyebrow. “Get your ears pierced?”

      “And something else too! Like my nose or my belly button!” I was getting really excited. Bouncing around like Cami. I’d always been intrigued by the way most girls these days glinted under the lights. It was rare, especially in California, to see girls in their teens without multiple piercings. I wanted to be one of those girls.

      Cami wrote it down before looking back at me. “A tattoo?”

      I hadn’t even considered that one. Something inside me jumped, but with the painful way it twisted I wasn’t sure if it was fear or excitement. “I don’t know…”

      “We’ll put that one on the shelf for now. What else? Just fire them off and I’ll write as fast as I can.”

      I took a deep breath and went for it. She was willing to help, so I shouldn’t be scared about revealing how little I’d done. “Go on a date, go to a formal, go skinny-dipping, get drunk, have a first kiss, stay up all night, take a road trip with a group of friends.” I took a deep breath and peered at her out of the corner of my eye, but she hadn’t even blinked and she was still scribbling away. “Have sex….”

Everyone thinks Aston’s life is perfect, but she knows the truth: nothing is as it seems. The only one who gets that is Sam. He understands her in a way no one ever has. But even he won’t tell her everything-until the night that changes their destiny forever . . .

Book #1 in the College of Charleston series
Read the first chapter

Annie Roth is only a few weeks from her nineteenth birthday when she leaves for college, but she’s never lived a day in her life. Raised by an over-protective father, Annie’s never gone on a date, had a first kiss or even flirted with a guy. Now facing freedom for the first time in her life, she is determined to have a few normal teenage experiences whiles she’s still a teenager.

With the help of her bubbly roommate, Cami, Annie makes a bucket list for her teen years. Twenty things she needs to experience before she turns twenty. It starts off easy enough—getting her ears pierced, having her first date, going skinny dipping—but things get complicated when Cami’s cousin Ryan and his best friend Chris get involved. Chris likes Annie, but she can’t seem to shake the unmistakable pull Ryan has on her, and despite her determination to cross items off her list, there are certain things she only wants to mark off if Ryan is involved.

4 stars from Best Book Boyfriends:
“This is a really good suspenseful story, and I love Derek and Kara together. They’re just such a solid couple for two people who are really young.
