The Destructive Series




About the Author
She lives in Colorado with her husband and two children. Moving from the lush landscapes of Maryland's Eastern Shore to the high desert plains of Colorado was a drastic change. She and her family moved to their own “Little House on the Prairie" at an elevation of over 6,000 feet above sea level, and a semi-arid climate that makes it hard to grow anything. While barely anything can grow where she resides now, the wildlife makes up for it. Mountain Lions, and coyotes, and rattlesnakes, oh my!

She tries to spend a little time each day writing, but domestic chores around the house usually take precedence. She would much rather hide them from her husband. She tends to her loving four-legged children who at times become much too demanding when she locks herself in the office. This often results in MORE domestic work, and she finds herself cleaning up after their deviant behavior.

She has always been an artist painting as a hobby to back drops in theatrical set designs. Graphic design is her guilty pleasure.

A Destructive Novel is a series of three books based on her life. They deal with heavy life issues and will have the reader begging for a happily ever after.

Casi Indispensable by Ariel Jeanne COVER REVEAL

FinalebookCI    
Title: Casi Indispensable
Author: Ariel Jeanne
Series: CAUM #1
Release Date: August 2014.
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 
Synopsis
They say that everything can change in the blink of an eye. In just a second. A moment. With a “boom”. You don´t have time to react and you can´t do anything about it.
It is true.
I know that. I live with that truth since the second I took my first breath.
I accepted it. Embraced it.
Or maybe not. Maybe I´m just fooling myself and living with it every single day.
For years‚ my routine life was my sanctuary‚ until another second‚ moment happened. A moment that made my heart beat stupidly and I became a stupid girl. A moment that was becoming more and more my almost indispensable.
But in life‚ nothing is that easy. My moment was taken away from me and replaced with another one. One‚ that shattered all my life… and laid bare… everything.

Excerpt
(Unedited and subject to change or removal before publication)
His full‚ soft lips on my right cheek‚ his stubble tickling it. His hot breath so close to my ear is making my mouth involuntarily to open‚ and gasp for air.
My heart is thundering painfully inside my chest‚ threatening to burst out. My chest is heaving uncontrollably‚ my mind dazed‚ my eyes rolling in their sockets‚ and my breath catches in the back of my throat with his scent that is everywhere around me and I inhale it each time.
His hands running back and forth along my bare thighs‚ leaving scorching fire on their way. With my legs around his waist‚ he brings his lower body impossibly closer into me. I can now feel him through his pants. Hot and thick‚ throbbing. And because of that contact‚ I hear him growl and hiss throaty and I suck in a breath‚ sharply.
His touch is doing ridiculously unexplainable things to me. Things‚ I can´t fight against.
I don´t have the strength to push him away with my hands firmly on his hard pecks because I am too caught in the moment‚ and because I simply don´t want to push him away. Don´t want to…
 
About the Author
To become an author is something that never crossed my mind. It even wasn´t my dream. But‚ I guess it was written somewhere. So… here I am‚ giving the life to the characters and their stories on the paper. Now‚ they can finally have their stories written and outside my head.

Excerpt
She clenches her teeth. “You can’t keep me here …” “Watch me.” I lean against the wall, picking up a lighter and a pack of cigarettes. I’ve been dying for a smoke ever since I found her in that room. “And then what? Is this supposed to scare me?” she says, her hand fisted like she’s trying to resist, even though there is no way out of this. I smile and put down the lighter. “If you think I am doing all this just to scare you, you’re mistaken.” “Then what is the reason, huh? Why are you keeping me prisoner?” She fights the tears in her eyes. I can’t help feel a little overcome with the urge to grab her and kiss her to take away all the hurt. However, I can’t. The past cannot be erased. What we are is set in stone and nothing can chafe away the rugged surface of our souls. I’d be a liar if I said it doesn’t pain me to see her hurt, but I like pain. I live for it. I was reborn in it. I don’t fear it. On the contrary, I survive on it. Pain is a means to an end and her pain is my end. If she stops feeling pain, then so do I, and that would mean the end. It’s too soon. I need her pain to feel alive. And so, I will continue to make her answer for her sins. “A man must do what a man must do,” I say. “A man? How can you call yourself a man? You’re a monster.” The look in her eyes, so in awe of my wickedness, is exhilarating. I smile. “Thank you.” Her jaw drops, a brow rises, and she snarls. It’s amusing to see the mixed emotions scatter on her face. “Are you insane? Why are you thanking me?” “Because I’d rather be a monster than a man in your eyes. Being a monster beats being a wretched human being. You’ve freed me of the burden of having to act sane. So yes, you could say that I am insane.” She just stares at me, her mouth open, but in complete silence, like she’s at a loss for words. “Believe me when I say you are better off with me than out there,” I say. “You’re mad! You wanted to kill me, and now you say I’ll be safe with you?” she scoffs. “I never said you’ll be safe with me. I can get quite dangerous …” A smile quirks up my face. She shivers. Clutching her body, she stampedes toward me. “Let me out.” I grab both her arms, squeezing tight as I hold her back and look down at her. “You don’t want to do that.” “I want anything but staying here with you.” She tries to jerk free, but I keep her close, forcing her to listen. She cannot leave me, because I won’t allow it, but I’ll give her a good reason as well. “Do you think I am the worst thing that could overcome you?” I lean forward and whisper into her ear. “There is more evil out there than you think.” Her breath comes in short gasps, her tits pushing up against me as her chest rises. Courage is making place for fear again, I can feel it on her skin. It’s riveting. She fights me, her arms locking with mine as she attempts to free herself from my grasp, but I twist her in my arms and keep her hands behind her back. Her ass is bumping against my cock, straining it to the limit. God, I love it when she struggles. I never stopped loving it. “Do you think I’m the only one who came for you, huh?” I whisper in her ear. “That I’m the only one who wants you dead?” She shakes her head, and I can feel her heart thrumming through her chest. “Did you see those men that were following us? Can you guess what they wanted?” “Me?” I smirk. “Great deduction. Now, there is a difference between them and me; can you tell me what it is?” It’s quiet for a few seconds. I guess she really hasn’t figured it out yet. “They want your head. I want your body.” She swallows, and it turns me on so much I want to rip off her clothes right now and do her against the door. But I don’t. Taking her would be so easy, it would take all the fun out of it. I want her to offer herself to me willingly. I want to see the regret in her eyes afterwards when she realizes she gave her body to the devil. “But …. I don’t understand. I thought you wanted me dead?” “I did. Now I want more.” She gasps. “Why? What changed?” “I did.”

I had just popped the tab of my Diet Coke when the door opens. Like déjà vu, Liam enters the locker room, except this time I am sitting with my legs crossed and fully clothed. "I just wanted to make sure you were all right," Liam says in his ridiculously sexy voice. Jesus, what is with this guy? "Yes, why wouldn't I be?" I ask, sounding maybe a little harsher than I had planned. "My father was very rude. I wanted to apologize for his candor," he says, all debonair and provocatively. "I think my uncle Matty has a huge crush on you." He chuckles. "He's old enough to be my father," I say bluntly, with a little disgust. "Ouch! I won't tell him you said that." He winces. "You're really not interested, though?" he asks and I just shrug. "Yeah, really." "It's just that most of the girls who work here would be jumping at the chance to land my Uncle." Liam just exudes sex in everything he says. I want to yell at him, "You have got to be kidding me, stop talking and fuck me already!" I feel my face turn hot at my thoughts and turn my head away from him. "Well, Mr. Tarseta, I am not like most girls," I say, not looking at his black lust filled eyes. "I am seeing that." "What is that supposed to mean?" I shoot back. "It's that you flirt just enough with patrons, but not enough that you are advertising something is for sale." He steps further into the room and sits next to me on the bench. He's close, close enough I can smell his expensive cologne, and holy fuck does he smell good. My breath hitches and I let out a gasp as I feel the heat radiating between us. "Mr. Tarseta, I'm not for sale," I say, taking a drink of my Diet Coke, my mouth suddenly very dry. "Ms. Troy, everything is for sale for the right price," he says low, almost in a whisper. I stand, feeling the need to put some distance between us. "That is your opinion, but I assure you that there is no number large enough that can buy me," I tell him still avoiding those black eyes. "So you are saying that nothing can buy you, nothing at all." He stands, inching his way closer. I feel the electric sparks bouncing off of me. I swallow hard as the smell of him fills my nostrils, I feel him watching the hollow of my neck. "I am not a possession to be bought, Mr. Tarseta. Besides, why would you want me anyway, you have tons of girls just itching for you to own them." "Well, first off..." He lets out one of his low sexy chuckles, "I don't ever remember saying I wanted you." Ouch, now that hurt. I feel about two feet tall. He stands there cool as a cucumber, while I'm a hot mess of nerves and lust. "I didn't mean to insinuate that you did..." I stutter, trying desperately to repair this very embarrassing moment. I turn to my locker to look for something, anything to distract me. I find my phone and pretend to read a text, also trying to pretend he is no longer in the room. "Second, Ms. Troy, if I did want you, I would have you." He leans down close to my ear, so close I can feel his hot breath. Okay, that's it, I am not a toy for you to play with. "Well, I guess it's a good thing you don't want me, because I assure you, Mr. Tarseta, you would not have me if you did," I snap, slamming my locker door. With a huff, I walk around the bench to avoid having to touch Liam as I exit the locker room. What nerve, what an arrogant asshole.

REVIEW

This was a tough one for me to review. I took a few days to think about what to write first and what rating I was going to end up with. My indecisiveness comes from the fact that the book started off SO perfect- characters that were strong, sexy, passionate, confident...and so right and wrong for one another. Then it took this turn and I was so disappointed in how the characters changed from everything that made them great into these people that could not communicate, that did very childish and immature things people their age and in their positions would never have done in my opinion. I almost stopped reading it right there. BUT, regardless of the turn, the story itself and all of the unanswered questions about the past and where this couple would end up made it impossible not to keep reading to find out where this was going to go. So I kept reading. I am glad I did, because the lapse in character behavior around 30% had rectified itself by 60% and for the rest of the book the story was fabulous. I loved the way it turned out and therefore what I thought was going to be a 3 star or DNF became a 4.5 star that I will probably read again and again. Definitely recommend this read, as with everything from Amie- her Deep Blue series is amazing as well. <3 kellie="" span="">

I live in Iowa with my amazing, supportive husband. He is my rock and my king, and treats me like all woman should be treated. (Like a spoiled Queen) I have two miniature dachshund's that are my babies, and they love to keep me company when I am writing away on my next WIP. I'm about to publish my 6th book, and can hardly believe how my life has changed. I'm called an author, and still can't believe it. I've have met some amazing woman on my journey so far, and have learned so much. (Sometimes the hard way.) I've been like a sponge soaking up all the information I can on how the publishing world works. It's been a rollercoaster ride so far with its ups and its downs. No matter what, I will never regret anything I've done. You can't succeed if you don't try, and if you don't try you won't succeed. One of my favorite quotes "If the dream is big enough the facts don't matter". Some other info about me, I love my family, friends, wine and anything caffeinated. I also love writing HEA. For the same reason I won't watch a movie that I know will make me cry, (with the exception of Steel Magnolias) I will never write a book without a HEA. There might be a few twists and turns, a cliffhanger or two. But ultimately my stories will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside. For me, reading is entertainment, a way to escape this crazy insane world. If a book leaves me feeling sad, mad or gut wrenched, it is not for me. There is enough gut-wrenching sadness in this world, I don't need to read about it too. I started writing 3 years ago, and have no plans on stopping. So keep your eye on me because with the help of some amazing people and my wonderful fans, this girl is going to be on the New York Times best selling list someday.
