Excerpt

Greyson

Seatbelt secure, I stepped hard on the peddle. The car lunged forward and the Kona Blue Mustang reached 60 miles per hour within seconds, and I continued to push the limits. I pressed the clutch to the floor and maneuvered the shifter. Instantly, the low rumble of the exhaust turned to a powerful roar. Bold lights and a vast skyline were blocked by high-rises, becoming blurred lines beyond the windshield. The closer I moved to my destination, the further I drifted from a world of darkness. With corruption looming behind me, I welcomed the light dangling in front of me.
Her light...
My flight got in late to JFK, so now I had to deal with a shitload of traffic heading into Midtown Tunnel. But then a black Yukon Denali drew down on my bumper and flashed its lights about ten times. I let the idiot have fun until we got out of there. From every angle, traffic held steady, but I couldn’t let other drivers keep me from getting to her. At 9:30 on a Friday night, I didn’t have time for this shit.
I caught a break and swerved out of the lane; the Denali followed, lights blinking like before. This was the shit, the childish shit that transferred from childhood to adulthood. And unfortunately, I knew the asshole: my brother, Detective Brendan Michaels.
Not now! Not today! I caressed the wheel, squeezing tighter than before. This was nonsense, but I wasn’t up for the bullshit tonight. So I flashed him off and kept going. Now wasn’t the time for complex family issues. Plotting out my route, I slowly began ramping up the speed.
A red SUV sat in the left lane, in front of me, while a shuttle limo tried to box me in on the right. Dropping my speed enough to force the asshole to pass, I shifted down and cut behind him, skipping over to the second lane in time to trap the idiot trailing me. This was the type of shit that always occurred whenever I made it to the city because he had connections to track me down once I entered his state and mostly importantly, enjoyed riding his younger brother. But I needed the next 2 or 3 hours, just for me and the girl that haunted my dreams.
Holding the wheel steady while keeping the pace, I said, “Call CeCe!” Saying her name nearly took my breath away. If nothing else, life thought me that first love spoiled a man for everyone else.
Thumbing the wheel and waiting to hear her shriek my name, I didn’t breathe. Honestly, I’ve faced off with some of the worse scum to walk this earth, yet she had the ability to crush me. The guys I went up against could only hurt the outer me; CeCe, on the other hand, could shred me from the inside out.
“Greyyy!” Her voice snapped me out of the daydream. “Greyyy!”
“Hey girl,” I muttered, scared like hell of sounding too anxious or desperate. I even sat up in the seat, gripping tighter on the wheel with both hands.
“Don’t tell me you’re not coming, Greyson! The last time you were in town, you promised every month. How long has it been?”
“Ce—“
“No, no you better not disappointment me!”
“I wouldn’t ever do that, CeCe.”
“Don’t patronize me, Greyson!”
“My flight was late, and I’m in traffic. Have you left home yet?” With each word, I tried like hell to slow the heartbeats.
“I’m already on my way,” she sang into the line and it took me back to when we were little kids. I could imagine her lips—the way they’d poke out, pointing at me. And when she’d tilt up her head to gaze into my eyes, looking me full on, pupils diving past the barriers most girls would be too afraid to challenge.
“I can pick you up. Need more time? Where—”
“No… No… And hell no! You’re meeting me, as planned. I need a friendly face. It’s been a long week, Grey. You owe me tonight ...” While she went on and on about my disappearing acts, I shot to the exit. Flooring the pedal, then quickly easing into a smooth stop at East 35th Street.
“Celeste, I don’t know what the hell you just said.”
She laughed and I could picture her shaking her head, swooping her long, blonde hair from shoulder to shoulder in a flirty way. I know this girl; shit, I’ve known this girl since her arguments were nothing more than whiny sentences. I’ve known her since those big, blue eyes were even bigger; when her nosey, little ass would come all the way over to my parent’s house, up the street, just to find out what I was doing so she could have something incriminating over my head at any given time. I’ve always known her likes and dislikes, even more than she’d admit to herself even.
That’s the girl I fell for.
I don’t know exactly when it happened, but it did. I fell in love with my best friend’s sister, and I don’t know how to turn off the feelings because something inside of me wanted to go against a childish promise and make her mine. Ours might’ve been a perfect love, if we were different people—if she wasn’t his sister and I wasn’t the man I’d grown into.

Excerpt

PROLOGUE

My phone goes off as Siri and I enter the parking garage. It is Brutus, her bodyguard. I pause letting her go ahead as I lift it and answer. “Moore here.”
“Good morning. Are you on the move yet?” He asks.
“Affirmative.” I answer as Siri walks to the car with her perfect ass twitching from side to side.
“You haven’t told her, have you?”
“Negative.”
He chuckles. “She’s with you?”
“Affirmative.” I tell him as I watch Siri stop at the car and look back at me. I give her a head nod, and she waits, knowing I want to open her door for her.
“She’s going to flip out, you know.”
I chuckle at that. “That’s affirmative.”
“I hate I can’t be there to see her reaction. Video it if you can.”
"I will."
“Billy is expecting you.”
“Thanks, man.”
“No problem. Have a safe trip back to Alabama.”
“I’ll give you a heads up when her rehearsal schedule is confirmed and we will return.”
“Sounds good. In the meantime, I’ll make sure her security detail is trained and ready to go when her show starts.”
“Perfect. Call if you need anything.”
“Will do.”
“Moore, out here." I smile at my girl, my wife, my Wild Thang as I end the call and walk to the car. She’s one of a kind that’s for damn sure. To think that just a few days ago, she was fighting for her life at the hands of a drug addict…. I shake the thoughts of what could have happened out of my mind. They didn’t and that’s all that matters now. It was just a fluke thing. She was at the wrong place at the wrong time. She kept her cool, came out of it unharmed, and bounced back. Last night’s farewell performance as Seary proved that. She brought the house down! The out pouring of love and respect from her fans was proof that what I knew the first time I laid eyes on her was true. I recognized a gifted and talented dancer before me who moved with the elegance and poise of someone who should be dancing on a larger, grander scale. She was perfection in motion and now she’s about to step into the role of a lifetime. She’s going to be the star of Whitney Houston’s, I Will Always Love You, Cirque du Soleil show and she’s going to kill it!
Watching me approach her, she smiles so sweetly at me. To be such a tough girl, she’s so utterly sweet to her core. She loves everyone and doesn’t judge anyone. I’m so thankful I found her. She’s the light of my life. Until her, I lived in a state of hopelessness. Never believing I could love like others. My military bros nailed my call name Hard-Core. I was hard. Hard to my core. But this sweet Alabama girl changed all that. Siri Wright rescued me and I love her more than life itself. I don’t know what I would have done if anything would have happened to her.
Patiently waiting for me to open her door because I insist she let me, she flirts, devouring me with her twinkling eyes. Sex is always on her mind, and her hunger for me is insatiable. Fuck, I love that about her too. I can give her everything I have and she takes it all. She’s one hell of a woman.
I slide my arms around her and pull her curves against me. She tips her face to mine, puckering her lips wanting my kiss.    I place my lips on hers, knowing she’s going to be ecstatic with the security solution Brutus and I agreed was idea for her. She will be protected 24/7. No matter if we are in Vegas, Alabama, or Italy.
She’s smacks my lips and I let her go. I just have to keep her safe for the next year. When I open her door, she slides silently in, and I wait as she straps her seatbelt on. Then I walk around the front of the car and she hits the horn, making me jump. I roll my eyes. I should have expected that.
When I open the drivers door, she’s giggling at me. I get in, lean over, and get another peck from her playful lips. That’s my girl. Always happy. Enjoying life to the fullest. “I’m glad you’re in such a good mood.”
She grins wickedly back at me and says, “I’m feeling feisty.”
“Oh, snap.” I grin as I crank the car and back out.
When I pull onto the highway and head to the address Brutus sent, she asks. “What’s on the schedule today?”
“First, we have an appointment to pick out your new security system. A gun was a good idea, but obviously, it isn’t practical for you. Brutus and I agree you need something that is visibly a deterrent and you need to take it everywhere you go.”
She nods, knowing we have her back. Then her phone rings. She looks at it, then at me. Her eyes are big as saucers. “It’s Mama.”
I laugh as it keeps ringing and she simply stares at it. “Better answer it, Baby Thang.”
She raises it and says, “Hey Mama.”
For the next few minutes, I hear Siri give her mother and father the live version of the video we recorded and sent them announcing we were married. She tells them again who I am, how we met, that we love each other, and that yes, we are officially married. She grins at the dashboard and says, “Yes ma’am. I can’t breathe without him. You were right.” Then she grins at me and says, “Yes, he’s Zita and Bob’s boy.” She laughs, “Yes, ma’am. We will be home when you get there. We’ll talk about the celebration then. Okay. Love you too. Give each other a big hug from me. See ya soon.”
When she lowers the phone, she says, “They’ll be home at the end of next week.”
“Perfect,” I grin and know without any doubt she is totally okay with making our home in Alabama.
“So, this new security system … is it a taser or what?"
"Or what."
She smirks. “Oh, that’s how you’re going to play this?”
I laugh. “Affirmative. I want you going in completely open minded without any preconceived ideas.”
She puckers her lips. “You enjoy making me wait, don’t you?”
I laugh, “Yes.”
She pretends to growl at me. “You rascal. How far away are we?”
“About fifteen minutes. You can wait that long.”
She waits about two before she asks, “Can I assume it’s new technology then?”
“This particular model has only been on the market about 8 weeks."
“Wow. That’s not very long.” I hit the right turn signal, and she looks in that direction. “Does it come in different colors?”
“Yes.”
“James will be upset if I have to wear something that doesn’t match perfectly with his costume designs.” She cuts her eyes at me. “James is very picky.”
“Trust me,” I smile. “James will be fine with whatever you choose.”
She sits in silence for another few minutes, looking around at  all the houses in the residential neighborhoods we are driving though, then asks, “Are you lost?”
“No, I know exactly where I am.” I grin. “As a matter of fact, I own about twenty houses in this subdivision.”
“Oh.” She perks up and starts to pay more attention now. “Does Kip manage them for you?”
“Yes, he and Bianca.”
“They are an interesting couple.”
“They’ve been with me for years.”
When I turn into the driveway, I tell her, “This is it.”
“Hmm.” She ponders out loud. “Are you sure Brutus gave you the right address?”
“Only one way to find out.” I open my door and get out. She sits patiently inside and waits for me to open her door, but her eyes are taking in every detail.
The front yard is small, and the house looks to have been built in the eighties. When I knock on the front door, a teenager girl opens it. She greets us and invites us inside. “You must be Mr. Moore?”
“Yes,” I answer and she steps back.
“Come in.”
When we walk inside, Siri is all eyes. She is scanning everything, curious as hell, and I smirk.
The girl takes us into the living room and says, “You can wait here. Dad will be just a minute.”
We sit on the couch, but before Siri can question the girl, a car pulls up and hits the horn. “Nice to meet you. Hope you find one you like.” Then she’s gone and Siri looks up at me.
“Well, looks like we are in the right place.”
“Yep.” I grin. 
While we wait, my Curious Thang points to the pictures and states the obvious. "He’s a police officer." She smirks. "Your kinda guy."
“Imagine that?“ I teaser her and she playfully shoves me.
Just then, Billy walks in and we both stand to meet him. He crosses the room with his hand outstretched and we each shake his, introducing ourselves. Without making any small talk, he steps back and says, "Right this way, folks."
I take my phone out and turn it on. She sticks her tongue out at me as I film her following him out of the house and across the lawn, heading to the building in the back. When we arrive, he pulls the door open and she steps through. Her face registers the shock, then she squeals and takes off. When she reaches the middle of the floor, she falls to her knees, holds her arms open wide, and sings, “Puppies!” Then she gets mobbed by six of the cuties little German Shepard puppies I’ve ever seen. Siri giggles as she tries to hold them all and it’s infectious, making Billy and I both chuckle along with her. Then she sits down on the floor, gets comfortable, and takes her time, picking them up, talking to their faces, and loving on them, then repeating the process.
I send Brutus the video with … “She’s a happy woman!”
He responds with a row of hearts.
Billy asks me while we watch Siri playing with the puppies, “Do you have a preference? Male or female?”
“No,” I answer, “It doesn’t matter to us. Whichever one she picks.”
“This litter has four males and two bitches.”
After a little while, the puppies lose interest and start to play with each other. All except one. One little black and gold puppy sits down next to Siri and watches them with her. When they come up and play, the puppy plays with them, but  as soon as they move away, the puppy returns to Siri’s side.
Billy leans over and says, “I think the little bitch has picked her.”
I cut my eyes at him. “Excuse me?”
He chuckles and gestures, “That’s one of the bitch puppies, and it looks like she’s picked your girl.”
Siri picks it up and holds it in front of her face, talks to it, and the puppy puts her paw on nose.
He chuckles. “Yup. She’s decided.” I laugh and he adds, “It happens that way more often than you think."
Siri kisses the puppy and tells us, “This one.” Then she stands and brings her over to meet me. I lean over and kiss my girl, then nuzzle the puppy. “Isn’t she sweet?” Siri asks me.
“Yes, she is.”
Billy tells us, “I have some papers for you to sign, and a few things to help her transit to your home, if you’ll follow me.”
We follow him into an office in the kennel. We settle up and he gives us the registration papers, some extra food, and a business card to bring the puppy back when she reaches the right age for obedience training.
When we are walking back to the car, Siri says, "You and your fucking secrets, Aurei Moore."
I chuckle. "I still have a few up my sleeve."
She turns her stunning smile on me and says, “You’re my hero, you know.”
I nod, knowing I would do anything for this woman. Anything! 
At the car, I open the door for my new family, help them in, buckle Siri up, then walk around and get in. When I slide in, Siri looks at me, “I’m ready to go home to Alabama.”
I lean over and give her a kiss. She’s my Every Thang.
When I crank the car, she takes her phone out, holds the puppy up between us and snaps a selfie. "I’m sending a picture to everyone I know of you, me and our little Angel."
"Is that her name?”
"Absofuckinglutely!” She states. “She’s my little Angel Thang."

When life gives you lemons,
You make lemonade.
I know that drill by heart.

You take it and hold on forever.

Excerpt

“I want you to remember, Faith,” he said softly. “I want you to remember all the good times and leave out the bad ones.”
“I don’t think I get to pick and choose.”
“We both did things we weren’t proud of. Things that I’d be happy for you to forget. But if it comes back to you, I want you to know that I’m sorry. It was my fault.”
I wanted to ask him what we’d done, what awful things we’d put each other through. But I was afraid to know. Maybe, in some ways, my memory loss was a blessing. All the bad things had been wiped clean while for Will, he had to live with them each day, had to remember every word, every hurtful action.
I leant in closer and rested my head on his chest. At first his body stiffened, then he relaxed, put his arm around me and held me close.
We laid like that for a time while something skimmed the sky high above us.
“Look a shooting star,” he said.
“The International Space Station.”
“Show off.”        
I giggled. Then he bent his head, put his lips on mine and kissed me.
