Zane Tishler moved in with his brother after his nightmare divorce to find that his brother had taken in a “stray”, a punk chick with a bad attitude. Liliosa Cortez found a place to start over in a city built for hiding. But when her roommate’s brother moved in she pegged him for a pretty boy with enough baggage to fill a semi and major hostility toward women. But now, after two years, Lili and Zane have become best friends and the perfect “wingmen.” They’ve developed a system for tagging and bagging tourists. No strings attached. They are partners in crime who have managed to have the time of their lives in the City of Sin.



Life would be perfect if they could keep it this way, but a new player in the game makes both Lili and Zane face the feelings they had not been prepared to notice. What happens when dangerous shadows from a forgotten past find their way into the neon spotlights? What happens when the fuse is lit on all those emotions they have deeply buried?



Can they survive the explosion or will the backlash tear them and everyone they love apart?



When two pasts become one present in the searing Nevada heat…

When two realities collide under the lights of Vegas…

When two lives are threatened due to secrets and lies…



What do you do when you find out your perfect world is Perfectly Broken?









Liliosa Cortez has spent years hiding from her past. Unfortunately, no one can hide forever. Now, she’s forced to admit her mistakes and make a decision. Does she let those around her in to help, or go at it alone? Conquer her demons head-on, or remain by Zane’s side while he fights his own?



Zane Tishler is a master at avoiding the difficult parts of his past. He learned early in life that charm will get you a long way in the world and deception is easier than hard truths. Sometimes, old habits die hard. When his past mistakes start making continuous reappearances, he is faced with some of the most crucial decisions he’s ever made.



It took a near-tragedy for Zane and Lili to admit their feelings for one another. If they could survive that explosion, wading through the debris left by the past should be a breeze, right?



When you have secrets, they can rip ragged holes in the ties that bind even the strongest relationships. When you know the secrets you keep make you a monster, one unworthy of love, you hold a power that can tear you apart from the inside... and take down those closest to you in the process.



What do you do when realize you’re Unforgivably Broken?









Before Perfectly Broken, before a beautiful relationship can start, the bond that solidifies who Lili and Zane are together must form. Beginnings are always the first step in building something stunning, something undeniably perfect…



The first holiday…



Things are tense between Zane, Lili, and Tish. They’re all still adapting to living in the house, Zane’s divorce has just been finalized, and he’s pissed off at the world. A bright light, however, shines in his world of darkness. Will the person he's hated since their first meeting be the one to help him turn things around?



The second holiday…



One year later, we find a much more settled family. Zane and Lili are falling into a pattern, learning to trust and lean on one another, but one wrong move, just the tiniest of slips, could ruin what is finally feeling solid for the both of them.



The beginning of tradition…



New Year’s Eve brings a fresh start, a chance to wipe the slate clean and begin again. Knowing your history, and where you come from, might be all that keeps you going when your whole world falls apart. 




The strength of the holidays, family, new beginnings, and acceptance, is how their broken pieces begin to glue themselves back together again, if only for a little while…




“What the fuck was that tonight?” he asked. His voice was low and controlled but his grip on my arm told me he was still pissed.


“What was what?” I countered, tugging against his hand. I didn’t fight to break it, just to remind him that he had ahold of me. His fingers loosened, but he didn’t release me.


“You know what. You were being a fucking cockblocker for no reason. What the hell is up with you?” His tone, and the fact that he’d adapted this habit of talking to me like I was one of the guys, was really starting to wear on me. Add that to the fact that I’d gotten the second threat on my job because he couldn’t keep it in his pants and I’d had enough.


“All I did was point out the obvious. You’re the one who’s unconcerned with anything aside from how fast you can stick your dick in someone,” I replied, tugging against his grip again, this time wanting space. He released me, his eyes narrowing as he opened his mouth to speaking. I continued before he could, steamrolling over his protest. “Don’t even try to deny it. It’s the only reason you even go out. And honestly, it’s sad. A chick who I can only imagine you had to gag to even get it up made your night a success. Congratulations on that. Really. It’s quite an accomplishment to fuck someone who probably had the jizz of her last partner still drying on her panties. If she even bothered to wear any.”


Zane stared at me, eyebrows raised. “Finished?”


“Yup.” I lifted my chin.


“Have you ever tried it?” he asked, leaning against the wall.


“I ran back through our conversation in my head. “Tried what?”


“Casual sex,” he answered, crossing his arms over his chest.


“You’d be surprised by what I’ve tried,” I said, my tone arctic. He tilted his head, his expression questioning. “Don’t even think about asking.”


A slow grin spread across his face. “You can’t drop a bomb like that and expect me not to ask.”


“Just because I don’t flaunt it and fuck a different person every night doesn’t mean I don’t have ways to take care of my needs,” I clarified, wishing I hadn’t brought up the subject as flashes of last night with Tony played through my mind.


“A fuck buddy?” He laughed. “You’re telling me you have a fuck buddy?”


Irritation raged through me like wildfire. The laugh was degrading and I couldn’t decide whether it was because I had a fuck buddy, or because he found the idea that I could have a fuck buddy so hilarious. Either way, he was pissing me off. “I’m telling you that who I fuck is none of your business.”


His expression cooled instantly. As if someone flipped a switch, all of his previous humor wiped away. “Exactly.”


If only it were possible for eyes to wage war…











Zane Tishler has never been the All-American picture of happiness. Every time he seems to get his feet under him, someone or something has to rip away his chances at healing. His girlfriend and son are missing after a devastating fire that left the home they shared in ruins, along with his life. How long can someone cling to hope without the two most important people in their life?



Liliosa Cortez has always been a runner. It’s how she’s survived for as long as she has. But, there comes a point when you just can’t run anymore. Lost in a world darker than she ever could’ve imagined, she has to figure out how to live with the choices she’s made — in her past and now. She has to act fast if she’s going to save the people she loves. That’s what matters. Even more than her own life.



Zane and Lili were finally finding their very own happily ever after when tragedy struck. What happened the day of the fire? Where are Lili and Conner? How can Zane and their family deal with this deep of a loss?



What happens when your world is turned upside down and guilt eats at you during every waking moment?



What do you do when all hope fades and leaves you Silently Broken?





Maegan despises writing about herself in the third person. She also hates touting her accomplishments like she thinks she’s really done anything special…



Now that we got that out of the way, I’ll tell you what you need to know. I was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I went back to school in my late twenties and studied Stage Production Technology. I now work full-time in the alterations shop of a major department store and part-time backstage in the various theatres around the area.


I’ve been an avid reader from a very young age and the top goal on my list of things to accomplish in my life was to write and publish a book. During the summer of 2013, while working backstage on The Lion King, I read eleven books in four weeks. I read my first New Adult book and was introduced to a genre I felt I could totally relate to. The idea for Perfectly Broken and the character of Lili was born backstage during that time.

Healing Teaser 1
EXCERPT
“I’m real glad I met you tonight, Anna. I’m looking forward to our date Tuesday night. I normally work late on the last day of demo so I can take my time and make sure everything that needs attention gets it. But knowing I’ll see you, well, that’s plenty of incentive to cut out early.” His words took me by complete surprise. The double meaning dripped from them. I know I had not given any signals that this was a date. Hell, he knew about Roman! Why didn’t that drive him off like every other man? I do not have the time or desire to worry about a man, no matter how good it felt when he touched me.

I stared down at my shoes, afraid that if I looked him in the eye I would change my mind, “I had a nice time tonight, Noah, but I’m sorry if you thought Tuesday was a date. I don’t do that, date I mean. I don’t have time. There’s the store, not to mention, Roman? There’s too much going on to add a man into my life.” Why was I rambling? I don’t trip over my words; I make things plain and simple. I make the rules, and rule number one is no dating.

“Anna,” My head popped up, and I locked eyes with him, “it’s a date. I am attracted to the woman I met tonight. I want to get to know her and see how this goes. We’re going to have a good time and eat some first-rate food. You can tell yourself it’s not a date all you want, if that makes you feel better, but it’s a date. I get where you’re coming from, you’ve got a lot going on, but I’m stubborn when I want something.” His words should have upset me. I should tell him to forget about dinner, and Christine and Craig could just go out, but none of that happened. Nope, I just stood there, with my jaw hanging open as he brushed his lips against my cheek and whispered against my skin, “See you soon.” I was still standing there, staring at the door a full minute after he was out of sight.

Release Blitz: Hate F*@K: The Complete Story by Ainsley Booth

Title: Hate F*@k: The Complete Story
Series: Hate F*@k Serial
Author: Ainsley Booth
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: August 18, 2015


Warning: This is just the start. This doesn't end well. And it's going to get much worse before it ever gets better. 

Cole: 

I push her buttons. I want to push them in the good way. Dirty, up-against-the-wall, my-hand-in-her-pants kind of way. 

But that’s not possible, because I’m dark and she’s light, and we both know it. 

So I push her buttons in the bad way, making her hate me. 

Hailey: 

If a genie granted me three wishes, I’d ask for Cole Parker to never look at me again, that I’d forget the dark promise in his eyes, and that just once, before he vanished from my life completely, that he’d push me up against a wall and make me scream. 

Then I’d go wash my mouth out with soap. 

This story was originally published in a three-part serial. Those are included, as well as a bonus postscript section with two exclusive new chapters.





“Hailey.” His voice roughs up a bit as he says my name, and I turn around. He’s not as close as I thought—a solid three feet of empty space sits between us, but he’s leaning forward just a bit, and it’s enough to make me shiver. He lifts his phone, all business again. “I called you twice this morning, so I know you’ve got my number. But you didn’t answer.” He swears under his breath. “Use it. We don’t need to talk, you can just text me. But don’t leave this apartment alone, or there will be hell to pay.”


“That’s ridiculous.”



“And right there, that’s why I think you’re crazy.”



“Well, I think you’re crazy for thinking you can somehow determine that there will be ‘hell to pay’.” My voice raises toward the end of that, because fuck it, I’m back to being mad again. “Did you stop for a second and think that maybe you think I’m crazy and a distraction and whatever else because I don’t play your fucking Men in Black games? But news flash, buddy—that’s not my world. I’m not a celebrity, and I’m not a politician. I’m just Hailey Reid, who had the misfortune to be born into a fucked up family. I’m smart enough to see the problems that raises, and for the last time, I’ll be a good girl, okay?”



My chest is heaving as I finish my stupid tirade, and all of a sudden I realize he’s breathing hard, too. He’s glaring at me, like my words wound him up but good, and then he’s in front of me, right in front. Close enough I can smell his cologne and the bare skin beneath it, and then I feel him. It’s weird that I don’t feel him first, because he’s pressed hard against my body, arms bracketing me against the counter on either side of my hips. But once I do, I can’t not feel him. All of him. And he’s big, and hard, and definitely turned on, which I don’t expect. Oh, sweet mother of all that is holy…



“Cole—” I breathe, and he cuts me off.



“When I say you’re a distraction, I mean I can’t get you out of my fucking head. I wonder what the inside of your mouth tastes like and if you’d pull my hair when I go down on you.” 



“No.” My voice has dropped to a bare whisper, because holy fuck and how is that possible?



“Yes,” he growls, and I make a noise that sounds suspiciously like a whimper. This is a disaster. It’s one thing for me to covet Cole from a distance. He’s beautiful. It’s something completely different for him to want me.



For a second, I revel in that. I let my mind go blank and roll around in what it’s like for Cole—of the mad driving skills, angry thousand-yard stare, and legendary reputation for all manner of dangerously delicious things—to have a hard-on for me. It’s better than a million dollars, and for the rest of my life, I’m going to remember this moment when someone that out of my league pressed his cock against my belly and growled at me.



But in the next second, I remember all the reasons this is a bad idea. When I’m not looking at him, I don’t like Cole. And I can’t kiss someone I don’t like. I definitely can’t rub up against them like a cat in heat. And right now, he should be doing something else. Getting my sister out of trouble, for example. And then after that, he probably has a hot date with a supermodel. 



I plant my hand firmly in the middle of his chest and push.



He doesn’t move.



“Cole…” Damnit. My voice is not on board with the whole tell him no plan. Instead it does a very uncharacteristic breathy sigh thing that sounds like a completely fake admonishment that’s not-so-secretly an invitation to be bad. Very, very bad.



There are a lot of layers to how fucked up my feelings about this moment are.



“I know,” he rasps. “Just…shut up for a minute.”



He drops his face toward my neck, and as he inhales next to my ear, my insides light on fire, like his breath is a lit match and my blood has been replaced with gasoline. No one has ever done that before, and I want him to do it again, consequences be damned. 



Saying my name on a long, slow exhale, he drags his cheek against mine, lining up our faces.



Shut up for a minute. How the hell does that line work on me?



Because it totally worked. Like panty-melting magic. My nipples are tight, my breasts heavy, and my thighs ache.



“This isn’t a thing, got it?” He grinds out the words, his lips now perilously close to mine.



I can’t handle whatever is going on, not straight up, so I get lippy. It’s my way. “Yes. Totally forgotten already. This is nothing.”



“It’s not fucking nothing, Hailey. Jesus.” He pulls back just enough to look at me. Great, now I’ve said the wrong thing and he isn’t going to kiss me. Which should be the right call, but damn, my body is protesting. “It just can’t be more than this.” He drops his gaze to my mouth, and that look feels almost as good as a kiss. It’s deep and probing and hungry.



I don’t like Cole. But I do like his hungry gaze.



I think I like it a lot. So I lick my lips.
