Excerpt
“Does it put you at risk?” She shuffled the coffee container around and scooped two teaspoons into the mugs. “He says it does, but I haven’t seen any evidence of it.” “I’m sure he knows what he’s talking about.” “That’s what worries me. What if he’s right, Ben?” Her guilt surged at the concerned expression on her brother’s face. “I can only offer advice as a brother, and that would be to stay the hell away from the guy if he puts you at risk. But –” He crossed his arms over his chest. “—I’ve done stuff that was stupid in my time, too, and I know that if you want something bad enough, nobody can advise you against it.” “Am I suicidal for wanting to be involved in his life?” Ben smiled. “No, Steph. You just care too much.” “So why do I keep walking out on him?” “Because you’re scared.” Was she? Probably. “I guess.” Ben sighed, and retrieved the milk from the fridge. “Do you remember what you said to me the day you got your first tattoo?” Steph shook her head. The day was a typical memory—vivid in parts, but equally foggy in others. “You said you didn’t want to live in fear anymore.” She smiled. Ben was right; she had said exactly that. “So what are you doing now?” He held her stare, raised eyebrows and all as the reality sunk in. She was letting fear get the upper hand yet again. All of this: Pete, Cass, Ivan—she withdrew from all of them out of fear of what would come. “You’re so right. I can’t believe I let myself slide back into that.” “Sometimes it’s hardest to see the fault in ourselves, Sis.”

Excerpt

couldn’t remember the James I saw boxed into the worn, plastic frame. He had a slight smile curving up on one side of his mouth up, while his eyebrows bore a look of surprise. It was like he wasn’t ready for the picture, or maybe the flash had scared him. Regardless, he looked… Well, he looked normal. He looked like the brother I could have grown to love, could have spent my days building rocket ships and playing baseball in the yard with. A brother I could have walked to the park and climb the monkey bars with. There wasn’t an ounce of insanity plastered into his still features. He was just a toddler, an older brother, who was part of a family that loved him and cherished his existence.

Picture James rested his tiny hand on my baby self’s even tinier leg. I was just a baby, barely sitting up on my own. My mouth was wide with an innocent grin and I recognized the baby as me—not because it was the obvious assumption, but because my mother had carefully stitched my name into the collared sweater I was wearing in the picture. James’s was stitched into his as well. We were the ideal-looking family, the one you would see in the display frames at the store, not on the wall. It amazed me what kind of changes happened between when that picture was taken to where we all are now. Dead, alone, and psycho. Some family.

A New Adult Romance
goodreads-badge-add-plus-d700d4d3e3c0b346066731ac07b7fe47   When soccer all-star Jax Avery collides with Dani Hart on his twenty-first birthday, their connection is instantaneous and explosive. For the first time in years, Jax isn’t interested in his usual hit-it and quit-it approach.

But Dani knows better. Allowing herself a night to be carefree and feel the intensity of their attraction won’t change anything when it comes to dealing with a player. So when Jax doesn’t recognize Dani the next time he sees her, it shouldn’t be a total shock. The fact that he’s her new roommate's brother? That’s a shock.

Dani doesn’t regret that night with Jax, just the need to lie about it. Since her roommate has made it clear what she thinks about her brother’s “type” of girl, the last thing Dani wants is to admit what happened. 

Jax knows he’s walking a fine line on the soccer team. One more misstep and he’s off the roster, his plans to go pro be damned. Except he can’t seem to care. About anything… except for the one girl who keeps invading his dreams.

Despite Jax’s fuzzy memory of his hot hookup with his sister’s friend, he can’t stay away from her, even if it means breaking his own rules. But there are bigger forces at work–realities that can end Dani’s college career and lies that can tear them apart. 

Jax realizes what he’s losing if Dani walks away, but will he sacrifice his future to be with her? And will she let him if he does?

FINDING DANDELION, the second book in the Dearest series, is a stand-alone novel. This New Adult romance is recommended for readers 18+ due to mature content.

NO REGRETS by Claire Kent ♥ Cover Reveal (FRIDAY JULY 11)

No Regrets Cover
About No Regrets On my last birthday, I made one vow for the year. Live with no regrets. Eleven months have passed, though, and nothing has changed. I still sleep alone, spend my life working, and never move out of my comfort zone. Then the loss of my dog throws my whole life out of orbit, and I end up in bed with a very hot and slightly-too-young veterinarian, who has recently made a vow of his own. Live with no strings. Josh is more than happy to help me with the things I’ve been afraid to try. Semi-public sex. Spanking. Anal sex. He’s a willing partner for everything I’ve wondered about, as long as I don’t demand more. He’s serious about his no-strings philosophy. As serious as I am about living with no regrets. I can’t help but fall for him, even though I know better. So my biggest regret might be a broken heart.  

Excerpt
I couldn’t stay on this park bench forever. I hadn’t moved yet. I was still staring blindly at the dogs and people on the path when I noticed from the corner of my eye a man slowing down from a run and then jogging toward me. Glancing over, I expected him to head past me toward the parking lot, but he seemed to be coming directly toward me. When he got close, I realized it was Dr. Bennett. He looked different than he had this morning. He wore a t-shirt and gym shorts, both wet with perspiration. His face and short brown hair were wet too. He’d obviously been running hard. His eyes rested on me as he approached. Obviously, he’d recognized me. Before I’d recognized him. “Hey,” he said, breathing heavily. “How are you doing?” “Fine.” It was a stupid question and a stupid answer, but that’s what people do. It was part of living in a civilized world. You made up nice-sounding lies and you said them to each other, instead of talking about how much the world sucked. His face was flushed, and he was having trouble catching his breath. Bending at the waist, he rasped, “I better do a lap to cool down. I’ll be right back.” “Okay.” I had no idea why he’d bother coming back. We didn’t know each other. We had nothing to say to each other. And I wasn’t really in the mood for talking. He’d killed my dog that morning, but I could hardly hold it against him. He took a slow jog around the track and ended up back at the bench with a water bottle in his hand. His breathing was less ragged as he sat down beside me. He didn’t say anything, and I felt a little strange. I didn’t know exactly what he expected from me. I certainly wasn’t going to cry on his shoulder, if that was what he was thinking. So I just asked a casual question. “You’re done with your shift for the day?” “Yeah. I got off at three.” “Do you always come here to run afterwards?” “Sometimes.” His vivid blue eyes rested on my face, searching or questioning or something. “It’s on the way home.” “Have you lived in Lexington long?” “I grew up here—in Versailles, actually. But I just moved back to the area.” “Where were you before?” “Vet school.” “Oh.” I blinked, slightly surprised. I’d landed on his age as younger than me but still in his thirties, but he must be quite a bit younger if he was just out of vet school. “So you just got your degree?” “Yeah.” As if he could see the surprise in my face, he added, “I started late. I didn’t go right after college.” That made more sense. The conversation, as casual as it was, managed to distract me from thoughts of Polly, so I pursued it. “What were you doing before you went to vet school.” He didn’t answer immediately, which prompted my curiosity. To take the edge off the silence, I said, “Bank robber? Computer hacker?” He gave a low chuckle and smiled at me—not broadly, but it still transformed his face until he was almost unbearably attractive, even as sweaty as he was. “Nothing that exciting. I was in Chad.” “Chad? In Africa? “Yeah.” “Wow.” My eyes widened in surprise. “What were you doing there?” “International aid work. I started right after college and did it through most of my twenties. I was mostly in Chad and Sudan.” “So what made you decide to be a vet instead?” He gave a strange little shrug and looked away from me. “I couldn’t do it anymore. And animals…are different.” I studied him, trying to read his expression, trying to interpret the paradoxically empty bitterness on his face. There was obviously more going on with him, but there was no reason to expect him to tell me. There was no reason I needed to know. “What do you do?” he asked, obviously trying to change the subject. “Paralegal.” “Who do you work for?” We chatted for almost a half-hour, about my job, about how he was settling back into the area, about running—which I used to do, although not much recently. Eventually, the perspiration had dried on his skin and his clothes, and we’d both faded into reflective silence. I felt a little better—like I wasn’t on the verge of tears—but the thought of going home still filled my stomach with dread. He’d been staring off in the distance, and he said without warning, “This morning was the first time I’ve had to do that.” I glanced at him in surprise, realizing immediately what he was referring to. “Aren’t you supposed to be professional and distanced about the whole thing?” “I guess. I thought I’d be able to keep the right perspective with animals, but it was harder than I thought. She seemed like a very sweet dog.” I took a loud, ragged breath as emotion surged up. “She was.” “I’m really sorry.” “Thanks.” I took a few more breaths until I was in control again. “I really don’t want to go home.” “Do you want to get a drink or something?” I blinked. “Right now, you mean?” “Yeah. Why not? I don’t want to go home either.” I finally landed on an explanation for his mood. He seemed adrift, kind of lost, not emotional but torn in some way. I wondered what he’d experienced in Chad. What it had done to him. Why he’d decided against working with people anymore. Even yesterday, I would have said “no” to his invitation. For the last few months, I hadn’t done much of anything except go to work and take care of Polly. I hadn’t liked to leave her in the evenings. It had been years since I’d had a drink with a guy I didn’t know, and this particular guy was too young for me anyway. But it was just a drink. Nothing more. He wasn’t coming on to me. He was just being nice. And it would give me something to do with myself, other than go home to an apartment without Polly. I felt a little better, talking to him. Like the world wasn’t about to pull me into some sort of black hole. I remembered my vow, eleven months ago, on the day I’d turned thirty-eight. I was supposed to be living with no regrets, and so far I hadn’t done a good job. This would be something I wouldn’t have to regret. “Okay,” I said. “Why not?”
