Book Synopsis

 

He could very well be the perfect ex…

Isaac McKnight has had enough loss in his life to know never to take anything for granted. So when the all but perfectly-imperfect-woman-for-him ends things with him out of the blue, it’s Isaac that doesn’t let their friendship get ruined in the process. Now a year later, whether it’s at his gym or her brewpub, or the dog park they visit every weekend—though neither of them own a dog—he and Xoey find themselves together more often than not, with a relationship that’s stronger than ever. The fact that he’s somehow taken a wrong turn and crossed over into ‘buddy zone’ galaxy with its dangerous proximity to watch-me-marry-another-guy abyss, however, doesn’t occur to him until Xoey tells him she’s on the hunt for the perfect man…who’s not him. Oh hell no. Isaac is done waiting for the crazy woman to come to her senses. This time, he’s not letting her just up and run from what’s always been between them.

 

But she’s looking for the perfect oh.

History has taught Xoey Kerrigan that sometimes, it’s Prince Charming who vanishes without a trace. And fairy tale love? Highly overrated. But the connection that results in a real and perfect ‘oh?’ That a couple just can’t fake. She’s tried. So when Xoey realizes she’s had waaay more exes than ohs in her love life, she creates a match-finding formula for the perfect man by analyzing the men responsible for her three most epic ohs. They were, after all, her best relationships. Heck, one has become a friendship she’d never jeopardize for anything. Which is precisely why she can’t tell Isaac that one-third of her genius little man-quation is all about him—well, more than a third if Xoey were being honest with herself…which she’s not. Because full honesty would require thinking not just about how perfect Isaac really is, but also about how perfect the fourth epic oh she’s kept buried deep in her past once was.

An easy enough thing to keep ignoring…until her past isn’t past tense anymore.

Book Synopsis

Grady Donovan is used to folks questioning why he never went pro. Sharing genes with a family of NFL greats, it should’ve been the natural decision. But instead, he chose coaching. Back when he was getting hit with hard life lessons for all his wrong choices, it was the first one he’d made that had felt so right.

Moving to the oddball town of Cactus Creek is now officially the second.

Here, folks care less about his name and more what the auto shop teacher—daughter of the coach he’s replacing—thinks of him. It’s refreshingly different. She’s refreshingly different. Sienna is nothing like the can-I-meet-your-brothers model wannabes or the delicate wounded birds Grady’s friends say flock to him by his own doing. She’s an opinionated powder keg with mind-melting curves and a garage full of tools he’s sure she’d like to hurl at him half the time. And lately, it seems all their heated debates over her old school defense being no match for his high-scoring offense is starting to mean something a whole lot different in his head…

Sienna Whitman is used toher dad keeping her on the sidelines. Being a veritable coaching legend, he could’ve recommended her as an assistant coach to his successor. But no, Sienna’s got that pesky lack of a Y chromosome on her resume. So here she is, back for another year as overqualified team statistician.

Secretly feeding field plays to her coaching buddies through her phone.

It wouldn’t be half bad if not for the new head coach continuously pushing her buttons at every turn. Mr. All American good looks with that ‘new school offense’ of his—a.k.a. the take-the-sport-out-of-the-game mentality—is driving her crazy. And not just because he’s under the very mistaken notion that she’s a sex addict in rehab, thanks to the opposite-of-quick thinking by her partners in crime on the field—seriously, if only her Bluetooth had a kill function. His genuine concern over her ‘addiction’ is…unexpected, as is the unprecedented realization that just being around Grady makes Sienna want that rehab center’s number for real. On speed dial.

Hell, it’s going to be a long season.

{Release Blitz & Giveaway} Unrequited by Melody Grace

Unrequited Banner1

Title: Unrequited (Beachwood Bay #3.5)

Author: Melody Grace

Release Date: May 21, 2014

goodreads-badge-add-plus-d700d4d3e3c0b346066731ac07b7fe47

 

Synopsis

You can be anyone for a night…

Alicia isn’t the kind of girl to kiss a total stranger up against the wall — no matter how devastatingly sexy he is. But reeling from a broken heart, she runs straight into the arms of Dex Callahan: rock star, bad boy, and the most seductive man she’s ever known.

Dex is looking for distraction, at any price. The innocent redhead is just what he needs to keep his demons at bay — but one taste of her sweetness isn’t enough. He needs to possess her, body and soul.

Two searching hearts. One night to discover the passion of a lifetime. Dex is determined to show Alicia the pleasure she’s been denied, but can she let go of her heartache and take a risk on the unknown? Find out in the sizzling new novella from USA Today bestselling author, Melody Grace!

 

Excerpt

What the hell am I doing?

I cling on to Dex for dear life: my arms wrapped around his waist, pressed intimately against his body as the motorcycle weaves fast through downtown.

The city lights flash past us in a neon blur, bright and electric as the adrenalin pumping through my veins. I can feel every rumble of the engine echo up through my body as I hold on tight to the solid muscle of the stranger between my thighs.

Not a stranger, I correct myself in disbelief. Dex Callahan. The rock-star. The legend.

The man who wouldn’t let me walk away.

I take a shaking breath, the wind whipping around me as we speed through the city. Under the helmet, everything sounds muffled, until I can only hear my heartbeat pounding a scolding mantra with every mile, feel the contours of his body through his leather jacket as I cling on for dear life.

This is crazy. I’m crazy.

No, a voice scolds me. You’re alive.

When Dex finally pulls the bike to a stop, I’m surprised to feel a flash of disappointment.

“Pretty fun, right?” Dex laughs, lifting the helmet from my head.

I shake out my hair, wondering how much of a mess I look. “Motorcycles are dangerous,” I say, instead of admitting just how good that just felt.

He smirks. “Welcome to life on the edge, darlin’. I knew it would look good on you.”

I blush, looking away. Now we’re far from the party, and all the reasons I had to run, I’m reminded just how far out of my depth I am with a man like him. He’s probably used to groupies and daredevils — rock chick girls who wouldn’t think twice about leaving a party with a man they’ve never met before, not some ordinary girl whose head is still spinning just from a motorcycle ride across town.

“Where are we?” I take in our surroundings; an exclusive apartment block in the arts district across town. There’s a marble lobby gleaming inside, and a doorman poised to help us through the glass doors.

I catch my breath, feeling a sudden panic. He brought me straight to his place? He thinks we’re going to…? “I didn’t mean–” I stutter. “When I said, we should get out of there–” I stop, my face burning up with embarrassment.

“What?” Dex looks confused. Then realization dawns. “No, sweetheart. I wanted to show you something, that’s all.”

He beckons me to follow him inside.

“Like your bedroom?” I ask cautiously, starting to follow. “Because I told you before–”

“You’re not that kind of girl,” Dex finishes, smiling. “I know. But, I’m going to let you in on a little secret.” He drops to a whisper, leaning in close enough for me to feel his body, hot against mine.

“You want to be.”

Title: Always You

Author: Missy Johnson

Genre: Student Teacher Romance

Release Date: December 19, 2013

Synopsis

I was thrilled when I was offered a graduate teaching position at the prestigious Tennerson Girls Academy. At twenty-three, this would be my first ‘real’ teaching assignment. Working at the elite boarding school, home to the daughters of some of the wealthiest people in the world, was a great opportunity that I would’ve been stupid to pass up.

One week into my new job, and I suddenly had no idea why I chose high school…I was a seventeen year old boy once, I knew how teenage girls behaved.

You can’t even imagine the hell of trying to teach thirty, hormonal driven seventeen year olds who have been cooped up, away from any male contact.

I could handle the whispers every time I entered the room. I could even handle the obvious attempts at gaining my attention. What I couldn’t handle was her…

***

Rich bitches and way too many rules. Was it any wonder that I hated school?

Add to that the lack of male contact, and I was going insane. Like literally. I wasn’t used to this. A year ago I was normal. I had a boyfriend, friends and a loving family. There is nothing normal about me anymore, and nobody here lets me forget that.

My name is Wrenn, and I’m only here because my aunt took me in after what happened, but my aunt also happens to be the headmistress of this academy…Can you see my problem?

I’m hated for my lack of money, and I’m hated for who my Aunt is.

Then he arrived. Dalton Reed. My new history teacher.

Slowly, he helped me see that even in the worst situations, there is always hope.

“It’s just my mom and I. Dad died when I was fifteen. I’ve always wanted to be a teacher, though originally I wanted to go with elementary.”

“Why did you go with high school?” I asked curiously.

He shrugged. “Last minute decision,” he said with a smile.

I laughed. “Oh, I bet you’re regretting that now,” I teased.

“I have no idea what you mean.” He looked at me innocently, and then his face broke into a smile. “Okay, teaching teenage girls is pure hell.”

I giggled. “Come on, it can’t be that bad. A couple of hundred girls, all thinking you’re a god? That’s got to boost the ego.”

“A couple of hundred girls all under the age of eighteen,” he corrected dryly.

“I’m not,” I said lightly, surprised by what was coming out of my mouth.

“Yeah, well you’re the exception,” he said.

The exception. I liked being the exception. I met his gaze, his eyes burning into mine. My face began to heat. How could I not read into things when he was staring at me like that? I felt naked under his gaze.

My best friend was dying and I was in love with his girl.

Andy and I had been best friends since we were eight-years old.
Watching him slowly fade away, ever closer to his final breath, made
me so incredibly angry. I knew there was nothing I could do to change it–I had given in to despair, but Andy had not. He had one last hand to play.

He wasn’t going to simply sit back and wait for Death to claim him–not Andy. He was going to live life until he couldn’t hold his eyes open any longer.

Andy didn’t want to die in some sterile hospital and asked me to take him and Emily to the beach. It would be our last road trip together.

Emily. Emily was a problem for me.

I harbored a secret that would have torn our friendship apart. I was in love with Andy’s girl, and had been since she’d walked into our sixth grade class, so many years ago.

So what kind of person am I? My best friend is dying, and it’s
awful–but my heart still aches for his girl. I hate myself for
thinking beyond Andy’s death and whether there could ever be a future for Emily and I, but I can’t help it.

I’m in love with her.
