With death circling me, this is my best shot.
I thought my life was settling down, falling into a routine. Boy, was I ever wrong. It only took one disastrous selfie sent to the wrong number, and I caught the attention of Vincent Goodman.
Worse, I can’t let dear, sweet Vin find out that the scandalous photo sent to him was originally intended for his notorious older brother, Tristan Goodman. I also can’t let my older brother, Sam, discover I’m falling in love with his boss whom he is convinced will only bring me trouble.
Trouble does come for me.
Death has always circled me, forcing me to choose: the safe arms of family, or the man who is part of a group far more dangerous than any monsters.
Meeting Tristan at the café turned into more than getting a cup of coffee. I didn’t expect to receive a sinfully hot photo from an unknown number, and I sure didn’t expect it to be from the shy barista.
While we form a relationship, unfortunately, I also begin to connect her brother to crimes happening within the business. My business partners, Tristan and Mark, want to punish her brother Sam to the extreme. But calling for her brother’s head would cause me to lose Alexa’s heart.
Sam might be involved in more trouble than I am, and he’s endangering Alexa as well. I’m determined to keep Alexa alive and make her mine. I’m just not sure how, but I’m going to give it my best shot.

Holy shit. It’s Alexa!
She sent me a naughty photo. Me not Tristan. Mentally I’m doing a fist pump, but also freaking out. I try to figure out how I should approach this. Do I go back in and wink? Say thank you? Maybe I should write back hell yeah. Or… send a photo of my own?
I look out my tinted car window and make sure the coast is clear. I should be safe, anyway, since the windows are a dark tint. Unless someone looks through the front window, then they’re in for a peep show. Leaning back in my seat, I unbutton my jeans and unzip them and then hold my shirt up. I tighten my abs and hold the phone camera up. I’ve never done this before, and it feels really awkward. I’m in amazing shape, but I’ve never actually showcased my body.
Buttoning my pants back up, I stare up in complete humiliation as Tristan is watching me with his mouth hanging open and his phone held up. I hurry out of the car and go to snatch the phone from him. “Delete that right now, dickhead!”
Laughing hysterically, actually doubled over with tears coming out of his eyes, the asshole keeps blocking my advances for his phone. “What the fuck were you doing? Were you sending a dick pic? Please tell me you were sending a dick pic and that’s why you had to run out of the coffee shop like your balls were on fire.”
“No! Now delete whatever shit you took. Fucking pervert.” I reach for his phone, but he steps backward.
“Me? You’re the perv with your pants undone in a public parking lot,” I growl but he continues on. “Who’s the unfortunate victim receiving that traumatizing photo? Did you use a filter, at least? Did you angle the camera to add height and width? Zoom in, at least, so they’ll be able to actually see it? You are aware with the right angle and close up, you could make it look bigger than it actual is. Like your rearview mirror does, bro.”
“Sure know an awful lot about sending dick pics. Can’t say I’m surprised, though.” I finally give up and tackle him.
He shoves me back, wheezing with laughter. “You…sent…a…dick…pic.”
I cross my arms and stand up straighter so I’m taller than him. “You were probably trying to snap a shot for yourself. It’s okay to admit you’re impressed. But Tori’s not going to believe that’s you when she’s already seen what little you’re packing.”
Tristan throws his head back and laughs. “Oh, man. You are full of it.” He eyes my phone in my hand. “So, I’m guessing when you ran out of the café after looking at your phone that you got a special message?” He arches a brow.
She was born and raised in a small town in Southeast Missouri. After graduating with a degree in Mass Communications, Gail married her high school sweetheart and moved back to her hometown.
She’s been on many adventures traveling across America and Europe. But her favorite adventures are the ones where she gets lost in a book.
Her love for reading and traveling led her to attend book conventions. Those conventions gave her the encouragement she needed to combine her passion for creativity and storytelling. Using coffee and her imagination, she loves writing contemporary romances that blend laughter and true love out of every day chaos. She writes in a variety of genres including, romantic comedy, romantic suspense, and new adult/ coming of age romance.
She debuted her first novel Worth a Shot, a steamy romantic comedy with a twist of suspense, in January 2020. Gail has hit the ground running and writing since. In her first year as a published author, she also released a new adult romantic suspense series – The Randalls, a three book series that follows the struggles of the Randall siblings. She also joined other author worlds such as: Corinne Michaels’ Salvation Society, K. Bromberg’s Every Day Heroes, and Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward’s Cocky Hero Club.
When Gail isn’t day dreaming in front of her computer, she’s busy raising her two daughters with her husband, who has the patience of a saint. She loves traveling with her family, binge watching television series with her husband, singing Disney songs with her daughters, and having huge family and friends get-togethers that involve lots of food and usually a cake.
She hopes by following her own dream of becoming an author, she can set an example to her daughters that dreams can become a reality. Maybe she can encourage you, too.
Never stop believing in love, dreams, and yourself. And coffee…don’t give up on coffee and books.
