My Kinda Mess Exclusive Excerpt:

“Thank you for breakfast. I’m gonna head out,” she says, pointing towards the door.

“Wait,” I say, grabbing her hand before she can run far, far away. That, and I really just like to touch her. Her skin is so soft and smells fucking amazing. “I want to talk to you about something.”

Leading her into the living room, we take a seat beside each other on the couch. Our knees touch, but she doesn’t pull away, which makes me smile a little on the inside. Of course I don’t show it. She’ll eat me alive. “What’s up?”

Clearing my throat, I just decide to put it all out there. “You want to have a baby, right?”

Alarm clouds her eyes as she gazes over at me. She’s on high alert and doesn’t say anything. Maybe she doesn’t remember telling me last night all about her desire to get knocked up, but there’s no way I could forget it. Especially after my idea started to grow roots.

“Yeah,” she whispers, her tone defensive and her foot tapping a heavy beat on the carpet.

“Well, I’ll give you a baby.”

She blinks once, twice, a dozen times. I don’t say anything else, but wait for her reply. My heart is pounding and my own desire to tap my foot is strong, but I hold off. Her eyes search my face, looking for something, but I’m not sure what. The she starts laughing. Like full-belly, rolling on the ground, grasping your stomach in side-splitting pain, kinda laughing.

“Oh my God, that was the best joke I’ve ever heard,” she says, wiping tears from under her eyes.

“I’m not joking, Lex.” Again, I wait for my words to sink in.

Slowly, her laughter subsides and her eyes change from humorous to serious to disbelief. “Of course you are. That was a joke,” she insists.

“Not even a little bit,” I confirm, giving her a smile. “You want a baby, and I can give you one.” Lexi starts to shake her head and opens her mouth to speak, but I cut her off. “Just wait a second. Hear me out.”

Standing up, I drop to my knees in front of her. Her eyes are wide with shock as she stares straight at me. “You need sperm, and well, I have some. Do you really want to have a baby with a turkey baster?”

“It doesn’t really matter how I get one,” she starts, stuttering.

“Of course it does. We’re doing this the old fashioned way, sweetheart.”

“We?” she asks, her eyebrows flying into her hair.

“We. You and me.”

Alone. Everything changed for Meghan Summer that fateful February night. All she had, all she saw in her future, was stripped away in the blink of an eye. Even though she finds herself surrounded by her growing family, at the end of the day, there’s nothing but a gaping hole where her heart once beat. Or so she thinks…

Her. Nick Adams shouldn’t want her. First off, she’s his employee and friend, but more importantly, she’s grieving the loss of her fiancé. Even now, more than two years later, which is why it’s important he be there for Meghan as her confidante, without checking out her stellar ass. However, his heart is pulling him toward her…

Together. How do you move past the hurt and pain to forge a new normal? Can Nick and Meghan make a go of their connection? What happens when their newfound love is put to the ultimate test as another is brought in the mix: a ghost.

Read an exclusive excerpt here…

More than an hour after we finish our pizza, Starship’s “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” begins to play over the sound system. “I love this song! Come on, one last spin around the rink before we head home,” she says, standing up and reaching for my hand. I take it instantly, and even though my feet aren’t excited for the last skate, I follow her back into the main area.

We keep our fingers entwined as we glide around the rink, singing along with the music. Every time she glances my way, I’m rewarded with a blinding smile. When I build up the confidence, I swing her out and watch as she does a little spin move. I snatch up her hand again as I cruise by, pulling her along until we’re skating side-by-side again.

We are laughing, carrying on, and enjoying the moment, when suddenly, someone stops in front of us. I visualize the crash moments before I feel it. In an attempt to save Meghan from going down with me, I try to spin her out, only to get the front wheels of our skates tangled up.

The result is painful. We go down hard, a tangled mess of arms and legs, not to mention the fact that the weight of the skates makes it difficult to determine where exactly your foot is going to end up. For me, it ends up at an awkward angle that includes a pull, followed by a bit of a burn.

I gaze down at the woman lying next to me on the hard floor, ready to pull every apology I can out of my ass. Before I can open my mouth, she bursts into fits of laughter. In fact, she’s laughing so hard, I’m pretty sure there are tears in her eyes.

“Christ, are you okay?” I ask, trying to keep from panicking at the thought of hurting Meghan.

“That wasn’t supposed to happen,” she giggles, her green eyes sparkling like brilliant emeralds beneath the spinning disco balls.

“Fuck no, it wasn’t. Are you all right?” I ask, glancing down to make sure no bones are protruding from her body.

“I’m fine,” she says, a bit breathless from our spill.

When I finish my perusal for injuries, I discover my hand and so much more. My eyes are riveted to her thighs, where her pink dress is pulled up to her waist. Her smooth, creamy skin is on full display, and my very male brain zeros in on the sliver of pink lace between her legs. My mouth goes dry and my cock rigid. Suddenly, it’s hotter than Hell inside this place and I can’t breath. Quickly, I pull the hem of her dress enough to cover what was exposed by the spill. I go to pull on the neck of my shirt, but my hand won’t move. It won’t move because it’s plastered on her outer thigh, my fingers grazing the globe of her ass.

Sweet mother of God, I’m touching Meghan’s thigh.

And can see her panties.

I’ll jack off to this exact image for the rest of my life.

“Nick?” My name on her lips is both a question and a plea. My eyes zero in on her lips. Those full, lush, completely kissable lips. Suddenly, tasting those lips is the only thing I can think about, the only thing I want.

With out eyes locked, my head dips down, her lips drawing closer and closer with each passing second. I can feel her breath fan across my face until I’m right there – my lips are a whisper away from hers. It would take very minimal movement and I would be kissing Meghan.

I don’t want to question it, but I do hesitate. I need to give her time to realize what’s happening. When her sexy little tongue slips out and licks her lips, I know what her answer is. Her eyes close a moment later, and I get ready to make my move. I didn’t even realize how much I wanted this kiss until this exact moment, and now, I want it more than I want air. No, I need it.

“Spill on aisle four!” a skater hollers as he whizzes by, pulling us out of the moment.

Meghan’s eyes fly open and crash into mine, the almost-kiss moment shattering like a glass vase on the ground, and realization settles in. We’re sprawled out on the floor, in the middle of the rink, and I was about to kiss Meghan. Publicly. Our first kiss was almost witnessed by half the town of Cooper, and two-dozen teenagers with smart phones.

Superb job, Nicholas.

Exclusive Excerpt:

The house is dark as we enter from a mudroom. I pause to kick off my shoes, but don’t get very far when I’m pulled farther into the house. We pass an expansive kitchen, but I don’t have time to admire the appliances before we reach the living room. Moonlight filters through the windows along the back wall, giving off just enough light to see.

“Wow, this place is –” I start, but my words are cut off as I spin around and am claimed by his kiss.

His lips are urgent and dominating as his fingers thrust into my hair, gripping and holding my head tightly. He devours. He claims. That’s the only way to describe this most epic kiss. The kiss of all kisses. Holy hell, my entire body is alive, a reckless charge of electricity and desire.

Our lips remain locked, our tongues battling for control and as he lifts me with one hand, my legs wrapping around his waist. I can feel every gloriously hard inch of his erection between my legs, rubbing against the one place I need him most. I’m practically panting with need.

Sawyer spins around, pressing me firmly into the wall. Somewhere in the distance something breaks, the sound of glass shattering fills the room. But neither of us stops. We’re unable to.

My legs tighten around him as he thrusts upward. The friction between my legs is both heaven and hell. His clothes, my clothes, they all need to disappear. Fast. His hand returns to my head, his callused fingers sliding up my neck and gently gripping my jaw. I gasp huge gulps of sweet oxygen when he rips his lips from my own. Our eyes are locked intently, his breath panting against my lips, our bodies begging for more.

It’s right then that I know: this won’t be gentle and it won’t be enough.

It may never be enough.

AJ Summer witnessed four of her sisters fall in love and settle down. But not her. She’s stuck in a rut, destined to spend the rest of her life watching from the dugout, kissing frogs. Then one night, she meets a mysterious stranger, who makes her feel alive and realize she’s not as broken as she thought–until she wakes up alone.

Sawyer Randall lost everything in a split-second when a game-winning play resulted in a career-ending injury. Looking for a fresh start, he settles into the cozy beach town of Jupiter Bay. A chance meeting with a gorgeous woman leaves him restless and anxious for something he swore he’d never want again–love.
