Danger is a part of life, at least in my line of work. I serve. I protect. I take down the men and women that would endanger the innocent. My Marine training led me to believe this would be an easy job. It was until Elayna Hart was dropped in my lap. After that, it was all up in the air.

Danger struck, and I had no choice but to do whatever I could to keep her safe. The attraction between us made it harder to focus, until I did the only thing I could. I ran away with her. We were off the grid with only two others for back up. If anyone came after her, we’d die to protect her.

Life is full of challenges - ones I have been able to meet head on. My path was straight until him - then it went upside down. Now I’m on the run from a man that wants to do more than crush my heart. My only hope is that the men who have agreed to protect me can do just that.

Excerpt
Being a witness to a robbery shouldn't destroy your entire life, but it certainly wrecked mine. It may not have been so bad if I hadn't have recognized the man holding the gun. The man who shot an innocent man for no reason other than stupidity and greed. His face had been shielded by a ski mask, but that deep baritone gave him away. The moment “Hurry the fuck up or I’ll blow your head off” left his lips, I gasped, uttering his name in what I thought was a silent rebuke. He looked my way and the man behind the register tried to grab the gun.

My world flashed in multiple colors as I watched in horror. The guy’s hand reached out, Jonathan jerked back, and with a twitch of his hand the man's head blew back, a coating of red spraying against the back wall. He was dead. I screamed and Jonathan attacked me. His hand wrapped around my throat, and I fought unsuccessfully to get out of his grip. Some noise distracted him for a moment, and I was able to hit his arm and slip out of his hold, barely.

The sound of the sirens made him think twice about attacking again. He ran off, but not before warning me to stay quiet, or I was dead. Why he didn’t just shoot me right then and there, I don’t know.

What Other’s Are Saying
Love this book. There are some amazingly funny scenes, some heartbreaking scenes and some gut-wrenching scenes as well. This book has it all, from loving and passionate to suspenseful and scary. ~ Mindy, Goodreads Reviewer

This is one of those stories that captures your heart and soul. It gave me all the feels and then some. There's love, loss and even some comedic relief in the mix.  ~ Kelly, Twisted Book Promotions

This is a fast, fun read. You can't help but grow attached to "the boys!" The relationships in this novella become very well defined and makes you want more of their story. ~ Annamarie, Amazon Reviewer

This was a fast read so be careful how much you blink because you just may miss something. There were times where I couldn’t help myself – I had to shake my head and laugh. I know it must hurt but it was nice to know that there’s someone clumsier than me. They always say that it’s good to laugh at yourself but when you can laugh at someone else it helps to make you feel better. ~ Lynn, Amazon Reviewer

I’m a Carolina Girl by right and a Texan by birth. Best of both worlds. I have the brass sass to keep up with my Texas sized temper. Living and working in both states i’ve learned a lot about hard work, adapting to your surroundings and making the best of the path that you have been led down. My grandma Dollie once told me I would know what I was meant to do when it happened. She was right, as always.
As with most book lovers, I am an avid reader. Reading has always been a hobby - a passion, really and a way to get lost in other people’s lives, their drama and other worlds. It’s a private movie in your imagination that you get to cast and navigate through, at your own pace. Reading helps to expand the perimeters of one's mind. That is what got me into writing. Writing has been something that I have done since I was a kid. If I had paper, I was writing. Nine out of ten times it made no sense but what are words if they are not to be used to your advantage? Words are a part of us all. Why not use them, right?
During the day I work as a ‘desk jockey’ and help the residents of my county navigate themselves around our little, but not too little country town. By night I am either blogging with my best friends, doing PA work for some of my favorite authors or fighting with the voices in my head. They can be stubborn at times. It’s a blessing and I am cherishing every moment. Tomorrow is never guaranteed so I want to make sure I live the day as fully as possible. For what is my creation, can become someone else's treasure.

Exes with Benefits Release Blitz




AP new - synopsis.jpg

***He wants a second chance. I want a divorce. To get what I want, I’ll have to give him what he does.***


From New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, Nicole Williams:


The only benefit I want from my ex is a divorce.


We got married for all the wrong reasons. The one thing we got right was our separation. I should have known better than to think I could bet on forever with a guy like Canaan Ford. Everything about him screamed impermanent, from his wild eyes to his restless soul.


When I left him and the small town I’d spent my whole life in, I swore I’d never go back. Never only turned out to be five years. Canaan claims he’s changed, but he hasn’t—same knowing smile, same rough demeanor, same body crafted from sin and sinew. And yet, something is different. He thinks this is his chance for redemption. My disagreement comes in the form of divorce papers dropped in his lap. He refuses to sign them. Unless . . .


He wants a month to prove himself to me—that’s his offer. One month to make me fall in love with him again and if I don’t, he’ll sign the papers. As much as I want to say no, I agree. I can suffer my ex for a short amount of time if that’s what it takes to be free of him once and for all. I fell for him once; I won’t make that same mistake twice.


He says we’re not over. I say we were over before we got started. Only one of us can be right, and I can’t let it be him.




 
 
 

“Canaan—”


Before I could attempt to figure out how to follow that, he lifted his hands. “I’m here to help. That’s all. No hidden agenda. I swear,” he added when I eyed the stack of packing supplies like there was a secret code I was meant to decipher.

“I don’t want to fight. Or argue. Or debate. Or anything else you and I could never stop going on and on about.”

“I don’t either.” He kept his hands raised for another moment before dropping them at his sides. “We didn’t always used to be like that, you know?”

“I remember. And then we turned thirteen and hormones got the better of us and we couldn’t seem to stop fighting.”

“I remember times we weren’t fighting. Lots of times.”

“The only times we weren’t fighting was when we were making out or making something.” I closed the door and cleared my throat.

“Fighting and fucking. We were damn great at both.”

If it wasn’t for the boyish grin he gave me right then, he would have gotten more than a grumble from me.

“We should have just stayed friends. That was the only relationship we were good at.”

“We never could have just stayed friends.”

“Why not?” I glanced around for a sweater to throw on, since that was the second time he’d looked at me like he had to convince himself not to misbehave.

“Chemistry. You and I had it.” He started folding the first box, his hands working with all of his attention directed at me. “You and I still have it.”

The warm jolt that shot through my veins whenever he came close confirmed his theory. However . . .

“You need a lot more than chemistry to make a marriage work. To make any relationship work.”

His shoulder lifted as he taped the box. “Of course you do. But a hell of a lot of chemistry sure doesn’t go bad with all of that other love, trust, and respect stuff. Does it?”

Grabbing a box, I put a good distance between us before starting to make it. “I wouldn’t know.”

Canaan stopped in the middle of yanking a strip of tape. “I felt like we had those things. Maybe not in the amount we should have, but I always loved and trusted you. And I respected the shit out of you too.”

I thought back to all of those nights I stayed awake, waiting for him to come home. My hand cupped around my telephone, whispering silent prayers to whatever god was listening at the time. I thought about the empty bottles and mornings of him not being able to recall anything of the night before. The scents of other women on him. I remembered tending to wounds and mending injuries.

Although the real ones that needed fixed I was never able to heal.

My eyes met his and lingered there. “You had a funny way of showing it.”

His mouth opened instantly, but it closed just as fast. He took a full breath. “I know.”

This book is fantastic. Madison has recently divorced her husband after finding out he had been cheating on her. They had been together since they were teenagers and she had only been with him. Hollywood is good on a girl’s ego or self-esteem. So, she books herself a say at a mountain retreat. She is running in a way but sometimes you must do that to regroup. She never expected to find herself a mountain man while she was there. Luke Dawson lives off the grid. He never expected to find a beautiful city girl swimming naked in his hot spring. But boy was he interested. Neither can stop thinking about the other. Madison discovers Luke’s cabin in the woods the next day and he can’t turn her away. With a storm rolling in he can’t send her back down the mountain. They will be sharing time until its safe for her to go back. When the time comes and its safe will they want to be away from each other or will deep feelings have grown between the pair? Madison goes through a kind of rediscovery of herself. Luke is a fantastic man. He is sexy, rugged, and a total alpha male. He goes through a little awakening as well. They both help each other heal and grow in ways neither imagined. I can’t wait to read the other books coming that have Meredith Wild pairing with other authors. Congrats on a fantastic book ladies. I will be recommending this one to others.
