Exclusively written for Audible, available only in audio. From the New York Times best-selling author of the Rock Chick series comes a story of love, murder, and second chances....

When small-town Nebraska sheriff Hixon Drake meets Greta Dare, the connection couldn't be stronger, but the timing couldn't be worse.

Dealing with the fallout of a divorce he never wanted and setting up a new home for his kids, Hix becomes that guy, that one he never wanted to be, and puts a stop to things before they can even start. Protecting his kids and himself is his only priority.

Greta, on the other hand, has found the place for her and the brother she adores that's perfect for them - a sleepy little town in Nebraska. She's learned from life that there are no hopes and dreams. The only thing to look forward to is peace. And that's what she works hard to build for herself and her brother. Right up until Hix walks into her life.

Hix can't fight the pull and stay away from Greta for long. And Greta's finding it hard not to hope for something more with all the promise that is Hix.

But when the first murder that's happened in over five decades rocks his small, sleepy county, Hix has got to learn to trust again, convince Greta to take a shot with him, and at the same time catch a killer.

In other words, things are definitely...Complicated.


"Wendy and her mom go to her at the salon. Her mom heard from someone and Wendy heard her mom talking to a friend about it. I don't think the girls know but Wendy told me just in case someone said something to me about it." Shit. "Shaw." That was all he got out before his boy hurried in. "Wendy says she's super cool dad. Said she's funny and she's like you. She's old but old, old. And she wears really cool clothes that Wendy says a lot of girls at school try to copy. But her clothes aren't like trying too hard cool. Like she's old but she doesn't get that she's old so she still tries to be young." "She isn't old", Hix said low. "I know, I mean she's older, like you," Shaw said quickly. (Transcribed from audio book chapter 6 at 12 minute mark.  Errors are mine and not the authors.  Names are spelled according to common usage and may be wrong.)

I adore this book.  My first by this author.  Complicated for sure but really good!  Review coming.

First Kiss (The Ghost Bird, #10)The time has finally come for Sang Sorenson to be formally introduced to the Academy. Protocol dictates the boys keep the details of Sang’s official introduction to the Academy a secret from her. The only thing they can advise her to do is to work on what will become her mantra: She is determined to stay with her team, no matter what.

Despite her wishes, however, the boys are second-guessing her place with them, concerned for her safety. With dangers all around and threats closing in, some of the boys are questioning if this is the right time to bring her to meet the Academy at all.

Sang is challenged with being the brave face among them and instilling the confidence needed to keep her with them. However, in order to appear compliant with the Academy’s rules, she has to be willing to listen and try their suggestions. As the boys have suspected and feared, the council wants to see how she’ll work with a different team. An all-girl team. She has no choice but to go along with the proposal or risk losing a shot at the Academy.

But when the Academy’s inner world is revealed to her, Sang knows that she’s finally found her place—somewhere she belongs—and she sees a future with them. The deeper she gets, the more she sees how she can make a difference. Learning what she is capable of and the impact she can have, she feels obligated to help. There’s so few girls, and they need her.

The guys try to stick to their plan, but every team must pay their debts, and the cost of keeping her might be more than any of them can afford.

It’s up to Sang alone to prove to the Academy where she truly belongs—but can she resist the call of a new team that needs her?

The Academy, Inside


I turned away from Kota, lying on my back. "I bet you a dollar." 
"I'm not getting up for a dollar." 
"I'll bet you...what do you want?" 
"Gabe," Luke said. "Don't fall for it. She'll get you to get something for her. Like a cup of water or something. It's an evil girl trick."

Re-read this book yesterday to prepare for the next book, Black and Green, which releases TODAY! I love this series!
