Gimme an F … 
F! 
Gimme a U … 
U! 
What’s that spell? 
FU! 
Forks University Fashion Academy was my dream school. And my spoiled little heart was used to getting what I wanted … until now. 
Being rescued by the annoyingly gorgeous Dominick Moretti, my sworn enemy per our family’s endless feud, turned my designer life into a nightmare. 
I had been minding my own business—pulling a teeny-tiny BAD prank on behalf of my sorority, Beta Alpha Delta—when the fraternity, Delta Iota Kappa caught me. Lucky for me, the DIK who had come to my rescue was none other than Dominick. 

We should hate each other. I mean, his family had basically stolen my dad’s business plan, making them rich and creating a grudge deeper than any university rival. But try telling that to my lady bits. 

Suddenly, everything seemed so last season compared to being with him. 

I’d had no idea fraternizing with the enemy would prove to be more dangerous than running in six-inch stilettos. 
Walking away from our families was the only way to be together … but was I ready to trade my comfortable life of luxury for a chance at love?

Excerpt

"Get your mangy mutt off me.” She covered her mouth with her hand to keep Daisy’s urgent kisses away.

Hell, he couldn’t help but laugh, of course the spicy Southern prima donna disliked dogs. And who the hell wore white dress slacks, a white blousy tank top, and high heels to Lake Tahoe? It was like wearing a wedding dress to a campground. He doubted the little princess was one with nature.

“Daisy.” He used a stern voice, which got her attention. Not the bitchy one on her back, but the non-human bitchy one who couldn’t stop wagging her tail. His pup moved obediently to his side, and Maverick reached for Elle’s hand to help her up.

“Why are you smiling?” she hissed. He pulled her to her feet, and she tore her hand away as if the mere contact burned her. 

She dramatically brushed dirt from her pants. 

“You all right, Peaches?”

“I’m fine, and you best call me by my name, seeing as I’m here for professional reasons.” She stood straight, face flushed. “And why haven’t you trained your beast of a dog? He probably ruined my outfit.”

“She’s a girl and just a pup. Still gets a little excited when people come over, but I will tell you, not the wisest move to wear all white in Tahoe. 

It’s kind of an outdoorsy place, you know? I hope you brought other clothes, for your sake.” He scanned her from head to toe. So fun to look at. A gorgeous pain in the ass.

I’m living the dream. My comic book shop supports me and my ailing mother, and I have a chance to buy the strip mall it's in. For only a dollar. That is until my dear friend and landlord dies before the sale, leaving the place to his estranged son who plans to shut my store down and sell the building.

If only I can confront my new landlord and convince him how much the place means to me, and how much it meant to his father. But he’s ignoring my calls and my emails, so I take it one step farther and track him down in his nightclub. I should’ve done my research first.

***

I inherited all my dad's assets and ambition, but none of his gullibility. Some young thing tried scamming him out of a place worth millions and she thinks she can fool me. So imagine my surprise when I hit on an insanely hot woman at my nightclub and learn she's the persistent comic book shop owner I’ve been avoiding.

She stopped in to find me, but has no idea who I really am. It's time to teach her a lesson. Using a fake name, I get close to her. The only problem is, I want to keep getting closer and to do that I have to keep lying.

Two rival families. Two competing wedding venues. One wedding of the season.

Nick Katsalos has a foolproof plan to save his parents' floundering wedding venue. The last thing he expects is for Erin Patterson, the captivating daughter of his parents' biggest rival, to waltz in and charm the client who could finally get the family business back on track. Nick would be furious--if only he could stop thinking about her.

When Erin and Nick enter into a wager to determine who will win the contract she prepares for the worst ... and is surprised by the glimpses of warmth she sees in the man behind the numbers. But Erin isn't about to forfeit what could be the biggest wedding of the decade to a man as cold as Nick. Especially since securing it means she could finally prove to her father she's just as capable of handling the family business as him.

But as the competition heats up, Erin and Nick must decide what's more important—winning or love.

Excerpt

“So, how was the movie?” he asked.
She frowned and looked at him sideways. “Which movie?”
Pretty Woman. I know you’d have gone and watched it after I told you about all the mistakes.”
Her eyes narrowed. “As a matter of fact I did watch it again and you’re totally, one hundred percent wrong.”
He shrugged. “Am not.”
She put her hands on her hips defiantly and heat flared through him. “Vivian could totally have been eating so quickly that she went from a croissant to a pancake, to another pancake in the place of a few minutes while Edward was talking.”
He smiled to himself. He’d been right. She was competitive enough that she’d want to prove him wrong. “Why would she do that? Unless she wanted a pretty mean case of heartburn.”
“She’d never been in a hotel room like that, not eating breakfast, anyway.” She waved her hands in the air as if she were speaking about a real woman, a friend, someone who she’d talked to at length about this. “Maybe she hadn’t eaten for days. Maybe she’d never seen so much food on the table before and she wanted to eat as much as she could before they took it away.”
“Maybe she’d burned up so many calories when she slept with Edward that she was starving.” He couldn’t resist, and the blush it brought to her cheeks was worth it.
Her eyes flicked to his, then suddenly away, and in that second Nick had never wanted anyone or anything more in his life. He cleared his throat. Living in a wedding hall must have caused his logical brain to stall. He kick-started it just in time. “Or the continuity guy was sleeping on the job.”
She made a growling noise. “I’ve never met someone so infuriatingly cynical.”
“You’re just angry because I pointed out a fact to you and now you can’t unsee it. In fact, you voluntarily watched the movie again, and you’re pissed because you know I’m right.”
She moistened her lips. “You still haven’t proven any of those mistakes, and until you do, I’m not going to believe any of them. Besides, the Rockwell painting is old and so is Pretty Woman. With all the advances in technology, mistakes aren’t going to be a problem anymore.”
He paused for a moment, wondering how far he could push her. No, it wouldn’t be fair, would it? But she was glaring at him, challenging, and he couldn’t resist making an excuse to have the same sort of passionate discussion with her again. “Seen The Fault in Our Stars?”
She spun back to him. “Oh no you don’t! I cried through that entire movie, and I am not going to have you destroy that for me. You’re sick, Nick Katsalos. Sick, sick, sick.”
He grinned. “I wouldn’t dream of telling you if you don’t want to hear. But you did ask.”

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 13, 2020



Blurb


I never thought I’d want a new man touching me.
Then the unthinkable happened.
For one night my armor slips.
Landing me in the arms of a man 
Whose sexy swoon is irresistible.

I meet the real him.
And I let him meet the real me.
It’s wonderful
Breathtaking
And hot as hell.

Laying naked in his arms is my magical calm. 
Heaven.
Except happy endings have a way of escaping me.
And sometimes epiphanies cause heartbreak.

Which means for Lex to find his happiness,
I may have to sacrifice mine.

Excerpt

Deep in thought, I sit in the sun on the short timber fence that surrounds the parkade. Feeling the warmth seeping into my skin, my muscles start to relax for the first time today. Every time I’m in court with Jacinta she sends me into a tense state. Watching her has me turned on and that makes it hard to concentrate. The power she exudes must be what has my heart racing a bit. Yet I’m not entirely convinced it’s not just the thrill of the chase and my determination to defeat her. I can’t seem to work it out. Either way she infuriates me, and I wish to hell she didn’t.

Pain radiating in my right ear alerts me to Tate arriving. His signature move, a flick on the back of the ear lobe when you least expect it. He used to do it all the time in high school when he sat behind me in English. Pissed me off then and still does now.
“How’s it hanging, sexy Lexy?” he says, already laughing at himself.
“You are such a dick, you know that, right?” I stand up to start walking towards the court.
“A big dick you said. Well thanks for the compliment, but don’t say it too loud, it’s weird when another guy talks about the size of your dick.”
“Hard of hearing as per usual. There was no use of the word big in that sentence, my friend. In fact, not sure that could ever be used in relation to your manhood.” Smiling for the first time today, I watch Tate scowl at me.
“Always the serious one, aren’t you, lawyer boy. You need to loosen up a bit. Let me tell you a secret, sex is the best natural relaxant there is known to man.”
I just roll my eyes at him as the other two guys walk up to us.
“Who’s needing sex to relax?” Mason comments with a smirk knowing full well who Tate is referring too.
“Old grumpy here. The one whose nuts are strung so tight they can’t breathe.” Tate takes the basketball from Mason’s hands and starts to dribble it.
“Fuck off, Tate. You have no idea how tightly I’m strung. If you knew Jacinta, then you would understand. That woman has a vice around my dick on the best days, and I have no fucking idea why. Now shut up and let’s play ball. I need to whip someone’s ass badly.” Looking at Tate about to open his mouth, I hold my finger up to him.
“Not a single word. Not one, do you hear me?”
Grayson laughs hard from behind me.
“Seriously, Lex, maybe you need to take Tate’s advice. Get some sex, man. Let go once in a while.” Gray looks sympathetically at me.
“I am, but that’s the problem. Not sure it isn’t making it worse. Now all of you shut up and play. I’m with Mason because at least he hasn’t said one stupid comment so far about me or my sex life.”
“Give me time, buddy.” He thumps my arm. “I’ll try to bite my tongue, though. Let’s um, how did you say it… ‘whip these guys asses,’ shall we?” Mason throws his arm around my shoulder and drags me onto the court, and it’s game on.

“You wish, Mason. Nothing can beat the power of two,” Gray yells at us from down the court.
“What, two dumbasses? Not sure there is any power in that. But yeah, let’s see what you’ve got. Bring it, baby,” I call as Tate starts running at me, dribbling the ball while Gray tries to use fancy footwork to get past Mason. The stupid smirk on Tate’s face as he gets closer is enough to get me fired up. I may be the shortest and smallest of the four of us but that doesn’t mean I don’t know how to stop him. I’m quicker than him, and if my stress does anything to my body it’s that it has the adrenaline pumping.
“Come on, pretty boy. Let’s see your best attack.” Light on my feet, I’m bouncing side to side mirroring him. “You’ve got nothing.” I’m full of mouth today, not afraid to gear him up.
“Oh, you think you’ve got a chance against the master, little man? Watch and learn, buddy, this is how it’s done.” He spins to the left to roll around me, but I jump at the same time, anticipating his move, and the ball is vulnerable in his hand about to shoot. I tap it at the right time and it’s loose behind him. My feet hit the ground and I’m off with the perfect bounce into my hand. My legs pumping me down the court as he recovers, turning to chase me.
“Shit,” I hear Grayson yell as he realizes that the ball is loose.
“Yeah, Lex!” Mason yells as I start my lay-up and dunk the ball in the hoop. I might be smaller than them, but I’m still a tall man.
Tate reaches me as my feet land on the ground.

“Correction, brother, that there, is how it’s done,” I tease. I jog backwards up the court as he retrieves the ball, and Mason passes me for a high five as we prepare for the next attack.
“Fuck, you are an angry little man today, aren’t you? No being nice now. Shit just got real.” Tate and Gray have a little word and they are on the attack.
In the fifteen minutes since I’ve been here, I can already feel my body starting to unwind and my tension about to be laid out on the basketball court for the next thirty minutes.
I love these guys.
