As she picks up the pieces and enters college with the help of her best friend, Clay Forbes walks into her life…and everything changes. The sexy, bad-boy soccer star turns Paige’s world upside down in the best way. But when his ex decides she’ll do whatever it takes to get rid of Paige, their romance could be cut short…and so could someone’s life. Book 2: SETTLING ASHES (Clay and Paige, continued) Clay Forbes’ mission in life? Prove he’s innocent of murder and find his girlfriend Paige so that he can fix the damage that’s been done. Before it’s too late. There’s only one problem: he has no idea where Paige is, and she’s taken off with her old high-school sweetheart, Beau. Tracking her down won’t be easy and convincing her of his love will be even harder, especially when there’s still a murderer at large in their small college town. Book 3: ASHES ADRIFT (Gillian and Drew) Gillian Ambrose has her act together. She’s nearly finished with her Fashion degree, she’s launching a successful lingerie line, and she’s left the scars from her past back in her old hometown. Until her brother is released from prison and the all drama she left behind comes barreling back again. Drew Garrick never planned to fall for Gillian. They were thrown together again and again when their best friends began dating. One night with her in his bed to get her out of his system, that’s all he wanted. But now that her brother is back in town and he’s asked Drew to protect Gillian from his revenge-seeking enemies, Drew has to admit the truth to himself: he fell for Gill when she fell into his bed. And now, there’s no going back.
EXCERPTWhen I reached her little belly button I used my tongue to swirl a hot, wet circle around it. She squirmed underneath of me, and I stilled her writhing with a firm hand on her outer thigh. “Still,” I whispered. “I’m just getting started with you.” In response, she bucked her hips and I grinned against the soft skin of her pelvis. Gillian never liked to be ordered around. Not even in the bedroom. It was a constant tug-of-war between us that I’d grown to anticipate and love. I paused, looking up at her. She emitted this sexy little growl in response, and I waited until she was still before I danced my tongue around the very hot, wet center of her. Humming in delight, I stroked her again and again, and held her hips firmly against her mattress as she moaned my name. As her tight little muscles clenched underneath me, I gave one last lap of my tongue and held her as she fell apart. Shock and awe rippled through my entire body, starting with my dick, at the fact that I could bring this girl to the brink this way. It never got old. This would never get old. It was something I’d recently realized. At the beginning, I was so sure I’d get the girl out of my system eventually. Now I was sure that would never, ever happen.
