With
her secrets about to come out and her career on the brink of disaster, she
turns to the one man who might understand.
  
Pop star PJ
Cantrell’s life and career are threatened when an angry blackmailer uncovers
the truth about her hidden past. PJ knows it has to be someone close, someone
she trusts. That makes the betrayal hurt all the more.
She turns
to long-time friend Gabe Sawyer for help but finds more than she bargained for.
As she quickly discovers she wants more from him than friendship and support,
she has to wonder what he’ll think of her when he finally learns the truth
about her past. 
Gabe Sawyer
is ready for a change. He’s built an empire in the hotel industry, but it’s
time for him to find something to bring back the passion he once felt for his
work. He’s tired of living in hotel suites, no matter how swanky the
surroundings might be.
When PJ
Cantrell shows up on his doorstep, she brings the wrong kind of passion his
way. He’s left trying to bury the attraction he’s long felt for her. Giving in
to that is the last thing PJ needs.
Steamy
romance meets heart-stopping suspense in the Sutton Billionaires Series. This
is the fourth book in the series but it can be read as a standalone story with
no cliffhangers. If you’d rather start at book one, grab The Billionaire Deal by Lori Ryan. A shorter version of this
book was previously released as part of the Sutton Capital Series.

Two months have passed since the day I pushed Hayden away.
Two months since I found out he loved me and wanted to be with me. I’ve been
trying to move on and forget about him, but my heart refuses to listen.
Hayden had almost died saving me. Half of me wants to
forgive him for everything and give him another chance. The other half prevents
me from doing so, distrusting him and ignoring my heart’s desires. Hayden is
dark and complicated, and as the days pass, he gets further away from me,
ignoring me whenever our paths cross.
I have less than a year before I go to college, and I won’t
see him ever again. I have to believe I will get over him and move on with my
life. I have to believe in my future without him. 
Unless he didn’t really move on, and our masks are about to
fall.

Excerpt
“He smirked,
his eyes heating. “Our rooms are very similar.”
That was true. Not
only our walls were covered with the layers of our souls, but my room was also
messy, so many papers, sticky notes, and art supplies lying all around. I
wouldn’t change a single thing about it.
“You’re right.”
“That was why I
felt…” He stopped mid-sentence, taking another drag of his cigarette.
My body leaned
closer to him on its own. The mood between us shifted once more. “What?”
He locked his jaw
and looked away. “It doesn’t matter.”
“It matters to me,”
I whispered. Without conscious thought, I moved and covered his hand that
rested on the mattress.
He flinched and
looked at my hand, frowning. I feared he would pull his hand away, but he
didn’t. “Why?”
My pulse beat madly
in my throat. “Because… Because you matter to me.” I tightened my grip around
his hand, feeling exposed. My eyes went to his scar, and I wished I could touch
it, definitely not for the first time. “I want to know everything about you.”
His breathing sped
up. “Everything?”
“Everything.”
He sucked in a quick
breath, taking in every line of my face with undiluted hunger. He balanced his
cigarette on the edge of the ashtray and met my gaze.
“I felt at peace
there,” he said hoarsely. “I felt like…”
I leaned even closer
to him. “Yes?”
He swallowed. “Like
I belonged there.”

she already knew how it could be between us.

Excerpt

 

Unfreakingbelievable.
Ducking around a
corner, I press my back to the wall and suck one shaky breath after another
until the spots behind my eyes finally clear, along with any wayward thoughts
about a third Slayers hockey player needing a bed in the ER.
I can’t believe it.
After all these years.
Quinn O’Brian.
Two feet in front of
me. Giving me that same smile. The one that put my belly into free fall the
first time I saw it. Left me breathless. And then less than a day later, left
me humiliated. Devastated. Working up fantasies about the wrath I’d rain down
on him if I ever saw him again.
So much for that
badassery. My knees barely held me when I looked up to find those stupid
sea-green eyes twinkling back at me like some Disney hero come to life.
Stupid eyes.
Stupid shoulders and
muscles-everywhere body.
Stupid sandy blond
hair standing up like some foolish girl just had her hands in it for the last
hour.
And that
introduction.
Blowing out a
breath, I shake my head.
He didn’t even
recognize me. Though why I ever thought he might is beyond me. Six years later
and I’m still reading more into that night than there ever was. More into those
soul-deep stares and slow touches. More into those tender words that turned out
to be total lies.

Excerpt

 

The squawking erupts again nearby and saves me. There are no
visible chickens on the field, and it gets louder as we approach the dugout on
the first base side.
Louder and more intense.
Very intense.
Like, are there chicken police? Because we might need the
chicken police.
I drift directly behind Tripp while we approach the noise,
shameless in using him as a human shield if this is a chicken uprising. What’s
that movie? The one with the apes that rebel and take over the world? That’s
what this sounds like, except with feathers and clucks instead of
chest-pounding and grunts.
“Should we call security?” My self-defense classes
didn’t cover protecting yourself from rabid chickens.
“That’d be a foul,” he murmurs. And then chuckles
to himself, and 
oh my god.
“Foul—fowl? Like a bird-fowl? Did you just make
a dad joke at a time like this?”
“A time like this? You mean a random Tuesday night at a
deserted ball field?”
“At a time when the chickens are gathering for a
ritualistic sacrifice of one of their own.”
His shoulders shake, and he seems to be struggling to cough.
“Oh, god, did you inhale a feather? Is that how this
starts? They shed their feathers to choke us to death?”
“Please don’t talk about chickens and choking in the
same sentence.”
“That was not a dad joke.”
“No, it was—oh. Duck.”
I squat low, spinning to see what I’m ducking from.
Tripp flips his flashlight on me. I squint and cover my
head. “Stop! I can’t see! What’s coming?”
“Lila. Ducks. Ducks. Not chickens. It’s
mating 
ducks.”
He swings the flashlight to the dugout, and—oh.
Oh.
“Is it…supposed to be that violent?”
There are two ducks under the bench in the dugout, one
flapping its wings and chasing the other, who’s squawking so loudly she could
wake the dead.
And— “Ohmygod, I did not need
to see that!”
Duck penis.
Duck penis.
Oh my god. Duck penis. Duck penis should not look
like that
.
Tripp’s bent double laughing.
“Where’s security?” I demand. “Hello?
Security? 
Security? I’ll give whoever removes this duck a
ten-thousand-dollar bonus. Right now.”
No one comes running for ten grand, because no one
can hear me
.
The squawking. It’s a cry for help.
“It’s nature,” Tripp says. He’s wiping his eyes
now, he’s laughing so hard. “Give ’em a few. They’ll finish up.”
The girl duck is racing back and forth under the bench.
The boy duck is chasing her with that thing.
And I am not having it. “Shoo. Shoo!
“Lila!” Tripp calls, but I’m already gone.
Flapping my arms. Yelling. Charging the dugout and the
ducks.
Why are they even here? There’s no pond here. Winter’s
coming. They should be flying to the Caribbean for Mai Tais and sunshine.
And instead, they’re ruining the sanctity of my ballpark.
“Shoo!” I yell again.
I hit the stairs down to the long covered bench, and the boy
duck suddenly seems to realize I’m coming at him.
He turns, pointing that thing at me, flaps
his wings, and gets this evil glint in his eyes that means I really should’ve
thought about what I was doing before I came in here.
“Woo her nicely,” I snap.
He squawks—no, quacks at me.
Crap.
I need to go back to kindergarten to learn my animal sounds
again. I’m a city girl. We don’t do farm animals.
“And put that thing away!
“Lila.” Tripp’s laughing so hard he’s wheezing. He
grabs my elbow and tugs. “Let the ducks be.”
“I’d let it be if he wasn’t attacking her.”
“Maybe that’s how ducks have sex.”
Then maybe ducks shouldn’t exist.”
QQQUUUUAAAACCCCCKKKKK!” the boy duck
yells.
It’s like a Braveheart yell, and I realize
I’m asking the wrong question.
I shouldn’t be asking why is the duck assaulting the
other duck in a dugout?
I should be asking what have humans previously done
to this duck because he’s going to kill me?
It charges, wings flapping.
I scream and take off running. Tripp mutters a
well-timed, 
oh, fuck and runs with me. “The other
dugout,” he shouts, pointing to the dugout on the third base side.
Another light flashes up in the stands.
“Security!” I yell. “Arrest the duck! Arrest
the duck!
It’s gaining on us. Quacking louder. And it can fly. It
can fly
.
It’s going to swoop over us, poop on our heads, and whack us
with that—that—that mutant 
penis and then scoop us up in its
talons, and—”
Aaah! It got me. It got me!
It bit me on the butt.
“Don’t fuck with nature,” Tripp grunts.
