It’s the summer before senior year, and now that Brody’s dark secret has been exposed, he’s left with too many wounds that just won’t heal.

He fell for Catherine—hard. And even though their love is the brightest part of his life, it can’t chase away the shadows of his past. Years of torment still plague him, and it’s a constant battle between old, haunting memories and trying to make new ones with Catherine.

Brody soon realizes that the only way he’ll be able to let go of the past is to find the truth hidden behind a life filled with lies. But as he discovers who he truly is, it becomes painfully clear that the road he’s currently on will turn him into the devil he fears the most.

Now Brody is faced with the daunting decision that will change his life forever. Does he stay and risk becoming a monster himself? Or should he save his soul by leaving behind the girl he loves?

Title: Entitled
Author: Carlie Yates
Genre: YA Romance, Suspense
Series: Entangled #1

Carlie Yates has been writing stories since she was in the fifth grade, convinced that if she didn’t get her thoughts and characters down on paper, her head would ‘plode; it could be ex- or im-, but either way, it wouldn’t be pretty. Inspired by S.E. Hinton, she always said that when she grew up, she would be a published author. This Midwest mom of boys has addictions to reading, road trips, hair dye, and the Oxford comma, and is thoroughly convinced at any given time the theme track to ‘My Three Sons’ will start playing in the background of her home.

She is currently working on “Enlightened” book 3 of the Entangled series, and renouncing her pledge to grow up.

Jennifer Hartstrum has trouble with men. Her relationship with an abusive father left her with a speech impediment that flares up only when she dates. Her friend talks her into trying an exciting new dating experience, the Anonymous Club, a place where a date is an adventure and fantasies can come true. One must choose an alias, and anonymity is guaranteed.

Andrew Martin is looking for a woman who can keep up with him outside of the bedroom as well as in bed. He tries the Anonymous Club with low expectations.

When Jennifer and Andrew meet, it is Chemistry 101. Have they found what they are looking for? In a world of aliases and mystery, is anyone really who they say they are? What happens when anonymity is good for one but not the other?


“So how did it go last night?” Megan asked as she crossed the ugly, black-and-white, checked kitchen floor.

“Umm,” Jennifer hedged.

“You’re speechless? Is that good or bad?”

“It was the best sex I ever had.” She took a sip of her coffee.

“That’s good, right?” Megan sat down on the other side of the table.


“So you’re going to see him again?”

“I don’t know.” Jennifer gently massaged her temples, and then ran her fingers through her hair.

“What do you mean? What’s wrong with the guy?”


“Then why doesn’t he want to see you again?”

“It’s not him, it’s me.” Jennifer leaned back in the chair. Her fingers were clasped together behind her head, holding her hair away from her face.

“I don’t understand.”

“He is rich,” Jennifer said, throwing her hands into the air.


“What would a rich man want with me?”

“What’s not to want? You’re smart, and I know you don’t think so, but you’re beautiful.”

“I have a speech impediment.”

“No, you don’t.”

“I stutter whenever I’m around men.”

Meli Raine ~ presents ~ Stateless

Out Now—Stateless (Stateless Series, Book 1)
 by Meli Raine 
(@meliraineauthor) #romanticsuspense #romance #suspense #newrelease

Release date: October 15, 2019
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book Blurb:
When you’re born without a trace, no one knows you’re a weapon.

I lie for her.

I hunt for her.

I kill for her.

And above all, I betray my mission for her.

She doesn’t know why. She doesn’t care why.

I do.

Treason comes in many forms.

Love is one of them.

Our training taught me to be a sociopath. A machine. A pawn. Nothing more than a tool for a larger goal, without attachments or feelings.

Our teachers forgot one important detail:

Pawns shouldn’t have hearts.

Yet we do.

It turns out our emotions are our greatest weapon.

And I know exactly where mine are aimed.

The Stateless Series also includes:
Traceless (releasing 11.19.19)
Fateless (release date TBA)

Amazon (everywhere):

Google Play:
Audiobook narrated by Joe Arden and Andi Arndt!

Amazon audio (preorder now!):

The word feel is foreign. It's as if Callum speaks another language. My heart jumps inside the cage of my chest.

“Feel,” I murmur.

Just then, Callum's hand brushes against mine.

My organs have become trampolines, it seems, because my heart jumps into my throat.

He slides his index finger against mine, the touch no more than an inch of skin.

Revealing a mile of need.

Author Bio:
Meli Raine writes romantic suspense with hot bikers, intense undercover DEA agents, bad boys turned good, and Special Ops heroes — and the women who love them. Meli rode her first motorcycle when she was five years old, but she played in the ocean long before that. She lives in New England with her family.

Reviews and Endorsements for Meli Raine Books:

“The first book in the False trilogy is a psychological thriller worthy of Hitchcock, keeping you guessing until the very end.” — Apple Books Editors

“…intrigue and dark humor on display in this thriller…”

While the immediate—and more compelling—tension in Raine’s (A Shameless Little Bet, 2018, etc.) heart-pumping series opener comes from Lily’s constant proximity to her would-be killer, the action takes place against a backdrop of secret government scandals. The “screwed-up D.C.-insider scandal,” as it is clumsily summarized early on, is pleasingly twisty…

Fortunately, Lily’s voice is captivating, wry, and tough enough to sell this thriller. The novel ends with a cliffhanger that startles, if only because readers will have become so attached to Lily.

— Kirkus Reviews

“Fresh, riveting, and thrumming with emotion and romantic suspense, False Memory is absolutely unputdownable. You need this book!” - New York Times bestselling author Meghan March

“I accidentally lost a day to this trilogy! It is unputdownable. Apparently I'm on a dark-and-twisty binge, and this book is addictive.” - USA Today bestselling author Sarina Bowen (review for Harmless series)

Ana Balen was born in Zagreb, Croatia, where she still lives with her husband, their son (read boss!) and the son’s pet rabbit named Shhh! (or some other gibberish that’s the favorite of their son for the day.)

She spends her days driving her husband up the wall (when he can’t get her ass up from the bed in the mornings), reading and daydreaming, or following orders from a three-year-old. In the hectic life she leads (and loves every second of it), she never thought about writing. But, then one day a name popped in her head, then, the snippets of things, and she sat down and started typing. Next thing, she wrote a book. And now, she’s about to release her third!

The odds are against him, but Jerin will find a way! With or without the gene Kaley will be his…

On Setera, only one in four hundred thousand is born possessing the cryan gene—a gene essential to the survival of the Seteran race. Jerin and the others like him are duty bound to find the match to that gene somewhere in the universe, for it can no longer be found on Setera. With no clear instructions on how this task is to be accomplished it is a daunting undertaking, like finding a needle in a haystack.

Jerin’s assigned quadrant is Earth. After twelve years of searching he is beginning to lose hope, until the answer hits him over the head with a frying pan. Now all he has to do is convince this beautiful, feisty woman to follow him to another universe in a galaxy far far away.

She slid into the seat opposite him. “I’d like to hire you.” She smiled at him pleasantly.

“How do you know I possess the skills you require?”

The women of Earth seemed to find him attractive. He’d been propositioned before. This might be one of those situations.

“I specialize in ‘men for hire.’ You’re a man. I’m pretty sure I have something you’re qualified to do.” She gave a little snort as if it were obvious.

He let his eyes rove over her body and then drew his eyebrows together. “I don’t do that—”

She laughed interrupting him. “That’s good because the Helping Hands Agency doesn’t do that either.”

He felt color rise to his cheeks. He’d been on Earth for ten years, and sometimes he still read situations incorrectly. “I apologize for my assumption.”

“That’s quite all right. If a man approached me in a pub and offered me employment, I would probably assume the same thing. My name is Rebecca Redburn, by the way, and you are?”

“I am called Jerin.” He extended his hand in the manner of people making acquaintance.

“It’s nice to meet you, Jerin.” She smiled. “Please call me Becky. I’m sure we will enjoy a mutually satisfying arrangement.”

That meeting had taken place two years ago. Becky had been correct. Their arrangement was mutually gratifying. Working for her provided him with a wealth of opportunities to meet a great number of people, mostly women, which could possibly enable him to complete his mission. Each job Helping Hands sent him on offered the potential to reach that end.

When would he complete this mission? He was one of the rare, one in four hundred thousand, that was born with the cryan gene. Any Seteran, male or female, born with the gene was duty bound to search out and find the connecting gene in another humanoid species. It didn’t matter how long this mission took. He could not despair.

A brand new Thirty-Something In The City spin off Series

He loved her. She gave him her virginity. And they’ve avoided each other ever since. Has time diluted what they once felt for each other, or are they doomed to make the same mistakes.

She was his first love. He believed they had the rest of their lives ahead of them. That was before she left without a backward glance. Now, Tyler Beyers is at the top of his game as one of the best rugby players in the country. He’s living the good life playing the game he loves with women begging for his attention. The last thing he needs is the melodramatic blast from his past.

He was her first… everything. Jill Sanders will never forget the hurt she saw in Tyler’s eyes when she walked away. It took all her strength not to give in to the guilt that plagued her. He was her home, her forever and everything that ends in hurt. When their lives are once again entangled, everything Jill once felt comes rushing back to the surface.

Will she be strong enough to walk away from Tyler for a second time? Will he let her?

“Told you.” Jill folded her arms over her chest, hiding the fact that her nipples had hardened. But he’d already noticed them. “I’ve learned a lot in the last decade.”

“So we’re both single,” he continued. “We’re obviously attracted to each other. We both know that there’s only one way to get rid of this chemistry between us.”

The corners of her mouth lifted. It wasn’t a big smile, rather one of those sexy grins when girls don’t want to be direct. “You’re the one who insisted on a date first.” She crossed her legs, their knees touching. “You stopped us in the middle of that kiss, remember. But we do have options.”

“Please,” Tyler said, turning to face her. “Enlighten me.”

“We can either act on this attraction and get it out of our systems.”

Tyler had to admit that option was so very tempting, but he wasn’t sure it was enough for him.

The second was likely to be a lot less appealing and probably more sensible.


“We just ignore it and hope it goes away.”

Yup, a lot less appealing. “So our options are to fuck like rabbits, or pretend we don’t want to fuck like rabbits.”

“Not quite how I would word it.” She raised her brows. “But yes, under normal circumstances, that would be my suggestions.”

“But these are not normal circumstances.”
