Love is one dare neither of them can take...

Arabella Stone, Nashville’s darling, is eager to shuck her prim-and-proper rep, and a few wild months spent checking items off her “ summer bucket list” is the way to do it. First up: kiss the man she’s crushed on since she wore a training bra, the bad boy of country himself, Blue bassist Charlie Tucker.

For Charlie, a beautiful woman flirting with him isn’t out of the norm—but a beautiful woman bolting after the hottest kiss of his life sure is. And when he finds out his kiss-and-run Cinderella is none other than Arabella Stone, daughter of his label’s CEO, he knows he’s in trouble. Because not only is she a Stone, she’s also his employee for the next few months at the recording studio he just bought.

Over the course of one thrilling summer, Arabella and Charlie chip away at her bucket list and fight the simmering attraction between them...knowing that once it's all over, so is their time together.


Sucking a second finger into him mouth, Charlie let his tongue in on the action, sliding across her knuckles, lapping at the soft webbing between, his eyes never leaving hers.  Arabella bit her lip, and her foot kicked out beneath the table.  He grinned wickedly.  (From an ARC - not saying where)

A fun and sweet read, my review is coming.  

Lev (Shot Callers, #1)From the moment Lev Leokov spots the young woman hiding behind her hair in the middle of the gentleman's club, he can't take his eyes off of her.
For the very first time in his life, he is affected. Having been told his entire life that he can't process or understand emotion, he considers it a big deal.

When Mina Harris gets caught red-handed with a wallet that isn't hers, she falls apart. She's tired, lonely and hasn't eaten in days.

Lev offers her an ultimatum... A nice warm bed, a hot meal and a job, or the cops.

Mina takes her chances with Lev.
After all, a person with nothing has nothing left to lose.


"Who sleeps in my bed at night, mouse?"  
I buried my nose in his neck and mumbled, "I do." 
"You do," he confirmed. "And who makes me smile?" 
I smiled against the stubble on his throat. "Me." 
"Exactly." He turned to kiss my cheek. "No one else. It's you, Mina. It's always been you."

I. Love. Lev. So freaking much. Ahhhhhhhhhhh.
