Standard

Synopsis

Arianna ‘Ari’ Williams thought she experienced the depths of true love until the man of her dreams dismissed her with no explanation. Heartbroken and humiliated, she found herself changing the course of her life and picking up the pieces of her shattered heart. Now four years later, she has a successful career, amazing friends, and a young son with crystal blue eyes that reminds her every day of the love she imagined. Emotionally she has moved on but the wounds never healed.

Reed Matthews has it all. Playing professional football was his always his dream. Being one of the most successful wide receivers in the league comes with money, fame, and all the women he wants. Even with all his wishes coming true, he never stops thinking of the one woman that owned his soul four years ago.

A chance encounter brings Reed to the realization that Ari Williams not only hid a life changing secret from him, but also things weren’t as they seemed all those years ago. He’s determined to get her back and build their lives together.

When the truth behind their deception is revealed- friendships are tested, families are torn apart, and the one person behind it all is relentless.

Can Reed protect those he loves and build the future he dreamed of?

Excerpt

“Did you miss me, Arianna?”

I can’t talk so I nod against his neck. One hand glides down my leg and into the hem of my shorts. His finger grazes the edge of the silk of my underwear. He moves the silk to the side and rubs his fingers between my swollen lips. He teases me with his touch until I moan.

“Say it. Say you missed me and I’ll take care of you.”

Smug bastard.

Shaking my head, not giving him the satisfaction. He removes his fingers but uses his whole hand to cup my sex and squeezes. I cry out and then bury my mouth on his shoulder trying to smother the sounds I can’t stop from making. My body begs for the pleasure but my mind won’t give in.

“I feel you trembling. I know exactly what you need. All you have to do is say three little words. ‘I missed you’.”

I try to wiggle away, but his body and one arm has me pinned against the wall. I swivel my hips against his hand trying to get enough contact to relieve myself, but he twists his wrist and squeezes again. The need for release seeps all the way down to my toes. Then I think of something that may get to him.

“Reed?” I whisper.

“Hmmm?”

“If you don’t want to take care of me, I’ve got a very talented BOB in my room that’ll do it. The thought of it actually excites me.”

His body stiffens and his eyes meet mine shining with desire.

“Not fucking happening.”

Excerpt


Excerpt:

We both start toward one another. “Hello, Mr. David. Fancy seeing you here,” I tease.

“Miss Turner, nice to see you again.”

“Please, call me Reese.”

“I’d love to call you, but you’re unwilling.” He raises a single brow in silent question.

“I don’t recall you asking,”

“Ah, yes. We’re back to that whole question demanding thing again I see,” he says playfully.

“Ah, yes, I suppose we are. Have you learned how to ask yet?”

His crooked grin etches several small laugh lines that delicately outline the side of his perfect mouth, making him sexier.

Seemingly impossible.

“Probably not, but I’ll give it a try. Have dinner with me.” His face stretches into a proud grin.

I smile up at his pleased expression. “Mr. David, I still didn’t hear a question.” I give him my best wide-eyed innocent look.

“Okay, help me. Tell me how it’s supposed to sound.” A glimmer of amusement dances in his eyes as he toys with me.

“A question works like this. Will you have dinner with me?”

“Why yes, Reese, I would love to have dinner with you,” he answers mischievously. “I’ll pick you up at 6:30.”

I quietly chuckle at the twisting of my words. “No, I was merely showing you how it’s done. I wasn’t really asking you out.”

“Okay, we’ll stay in. I’ll be at your place at 6:30. I’ll bring the wine.”

I stand there dumbfounded as he winks, turns on his heel, and walks toward the exit.

MeetTheAuthor
I’m a wife and mother of two beautiful children. Being from sunny south Florida, I never spent much time inside reading. I decided to give it a try with a highly talked about trilogy and found myself devouring the pages like a mad woman. Although I knew I was hooked with that trilogy, the hundreds of books I read in the following year proved it.
Through my love of reading sparked the inspiration to try my hand at writing. I wrote two full length novels as a hobby and only through my husbands encouragement did I ever consider self publishing.

Release Day Launch for Can’t Let Go by Michelle Lynn

Standard
SYNOPSIS:
Dex is many things, a college senior, the bassist for The
Invisibles, a son, a friend, everything but a boyfriend. Everybody knows him as
the shallow guy who’s up for a good time anytime. People rarely take the time
to see the loyal guy lying just beneath the happy-go-lucky façade.
There are parts of Dex’s life he keeps hidden. Ones he believes
no one would understand. Since he gave up on the idea of a dream girl long ago,
he thinks he’s finally found the perfect balance of connection without
commitment with Sam.
Chrissy used to know everything about Dex. When he left four
years ago for college, she was left behind. Four years later, with nowhere else
to turn, Chrissy calls the one person she’s always counted on, Dex. One glance
at the sad eyes he’s tried to forget and Dex knows it’s out of his control.
With Chrissy’s return, lines begin to cross from friendship to
something more, but will Dex’s secret force them apart forever?

(Can’t Let Go is the fourth novel in the Invisibles Series)

 

EXCERPT:

Picking it up, still shaking in my hands, a number I don’t
recognize crosses the screen. Wavering on whether or not I want to chance this
being something at the house, I hit ignore because I don’t want to be bothered
with my dad’s so-called business
today. Then thoughts of someone raiding or maybe some loser found out where my
dad’s operation is. Worse case, someone ratted him out. Figuring someone who I
have programmed in my phone would have made the phone call to alert me, I wait
to see if they leave a voicemail. Which they do—my phone vibrates a second
later.
 
Clicking speaker, I place the black rectangle on my dresser while
I gel my hair. My fingers are manipulating each strand, placing it in the
perfect spot when her voice comes across. My hands stop mid-air and I my eyes
fixate on the phone. Closing my eyes, that sweet sound that’s only lived in my
dreams the past years still unglues me to the core.   “Um … Dex. I’m in town and … um … I was
wondering … if maybe we could … um … talk.” Her voice is practically shaking
from the awkwardness of the phone call.
 
“HULK!” Brady screams again. Debating in my head what I should do,
I could easily claim ignorance that I never got the call. Say that I was
already out of town. Excuses run through my head as to why I would leave her
wherever she is. Then the images of her alone, or worse, not. Knowing even with
the distance that has formed between us over the years, I could never, would
never, not go to her if she needed me.
 
Walking out my door, I peer over the railing to a sour Brady.
“Man, I gotta do something. You guys go without me,” I shout down.
 
“What is so damn important?” he asks, sensitive to the fact he
can tell something’s off with me. Brady is like the father of our friends,
protective of us all.
 
“A friend needs me,” I say, remaining vague. If Brady knew the
half of what I did when I leave this house, he’d probably have an anxiety
attack.
 
He stands there staring up at me and wavers at the door. Probably
counting in his head how long he has before Sadie, his fiancé, comes in search
of him. “What’s up, man?” he asks, stepping up a few stairs.
 
“I’m not sure yet. I need to make a call.” I’m honest with him
because Brady has a sense of comfort about him. Although, I’m fairly certain
our secrets are shared with Sadie, he keeps things mostly to himself.
 
“Do that, and we’ll wait.” He jogs back down the steps, and the
front door shuts behind him.
 
Sitting on my bed, I bite my lip. It’s been so long. Not that she
hasn’t crossed my mind; I’m not sure a day goes by that I don’t wonder where
she is and what’s she’s doing. I question why she left and never answered my
calls. The guilt that I somehow left her behind always resonating inside
somewhere within me even when she’s the one who disappeared. The small piece of
electronics sits in my hands like a ten-pound weight. There’s no turning back,
no erasing from my mind once I press that call icon.
 
Pushing back my fear, I press the call button, release a deep
breath and bring the phone up to my ear. She answers on the first ring,
confirming something is seriously wrong. “Dex,” she answers. Another stab of
the knife that she still has my number programmed, but I don’t have her
obviously changed number.
 
“Chrissy?” I say her name out loud for the first time in four
years. How can her name seem foreign on my tongue?
 
The line is quiet for a few seconds before she continues. “Hi.
I’m in Western … at this place called The Loft. Could you come down here?” she
asks.

EXCERPT:

Jude couldn’t believe his luck when Maya spun around and came crashing into him. After spotting her outside, he’d followed her in; his progress hindered as he tried to navigate across a yard packed with partygoers. As he fought his way through the kitchen, he thought she was going to slip away yet again. It seemed all day long he’d been trying to speak to her but she was a whirling dervish spinning here, there, and everywhere. Organizing photos, straightening buttonholes, helping elderly aunts into cars and goodness knows what else.

Every time he came within five feet of her, she twirled around and headed off in the opposite direction, intent on some errand or mission of mercy. But now here she was in his arms.

She’s still all hair, he thought.

He never understood how anyone so small could have so much of it. It was so damn sexy; it always made him want to run his fingers through it. Those curls had a mind of their own. Even now they were escaping here and there from the barrette.

LAST Empathy DividerSynopsis
Blake:

I am a brother
I am a police detective
I am a contract killer
I don’t want to love
I don’t want to feel
I don’t want … EMPATHY.

They say some people are born with decreased activity in the front central lobe causing them a deficiency in empathy. Maybe that’s true about me but whether I was born this way or created in a moment of evil, empathy was something I didn’t possess until her green eyes met mine in the mirror and I couldn’t take her life.
I didn’t want to feel, didn’t want this woman in my life complicating how I lived but she was there at every turn. Sent to haunt me for my sins. Her light so bright she provoked a shadow from everyone she touched. When a job turns bad quickly altering my life forever I’m forced to feel. When nothing is making sense I’m forced to face truths I never would recover from. When life drowns you in its cruelty you don’t know which way the current will drag you or who you’ll become once you re-surface.

Melody:

I was a daughter
I was a student
I was a victim
Did I have his love?
Did I make him feel?
Did I have his empathy?
When the actions of a soulless killer forces sorrow into my veins I never dreamed the man healing my wounds would be the one to leave the worst scar. His love would scar my soul. Scars are permanent; I will never feel the relief from them. Will I learn to live with them, remember why I have them and learn never to let him close enough to inflict more? Will I eventually cover them… like tattoos coating them with new memories, new love and new starts? I didn’t know these answers because the pain was too suffocating, the only thing I knew was they will always be under the surface lingering. He had scars too, from his sins. There is nothing that can cover them, they were too deep, too ugly, too dark and they marked us both forever.

LAST Empathy DividerMeet Ker DukeyKer Dukey

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could of improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on facebook where i love interacting with my readers.
