New Release: Taken Hard

Blurb

With women throwing themselves at him, Caleb Hard never intended to settle down. But he secretly wants to find a woman and have a marriage exactly like what his parents have. The moment Lilly enters his world, he can’t get the woman out of his mind.

Her mother’s reputation follows her everywhere, and Lilly is used to being whispered about. When Caleb offers her friendship, she’s more than happy to take it. What she doesn’t expect is for him to admit he wants a virgin like her. A perfect gentleman, Caleb doesn’t rush.

He’s fallen in love, and this isn’t about sex. He wants forever, but he doesn’t want to scare her off. Is there any chance of them ever truly working?

Excerpt:

The food was delicious, as was the company. Caleb could cook. Lilly sat back down as he finished reading one of his favorite parts in the story.

He really had read the book and enjoyed it.

“So, to conclude, we both loved the book,” Lilly said.

“I did, and it was nice talking to someone about it.”

“Yeah, I’ve never done this before.” She tilted her head toward him as he sat down on the sofa beside him.

She couldn’t help but notice how plump his lips were. The book he’d chosen had been a little steamier than she thought he’d go for. It made her regret giving him her book as there was a lot more sex, and it was kinkier as well.

Her fantasies were not soft or gentle, but hard.

“What are you thinking about right now?”

Rather than have another coffee, she’d opted for a single glass of wine, and as he looked at Caleb now, she wished she hadn’t. She became more honest and open. “I shouldn’t have given you my book.”

“Why not?” he asked.

“It’s dirty. It’s what I write.” She leaned back and sighed. “I think about sex a lot.” In the back of her mind, she was screaming for herself to shut up.

She didn’t. “Did you know I’ve never had sex?”

“What?”

“Never had sex.” She pressed a hand to her mouth. I shouldn’t tell you that either.” She let out a giggle. “And I shouldn’t have had that glass of wine. Also, while I’m being so honest, I think I’ve developed a little bit of a crush on you.” She held her fingers close together.

Before she could talk herself out of it, she cupped his cheek. “And I know there is nothing we can do about it.”

She pressed her lips against his, and Caleb groaned. “Fuck me, Lilly, you’re making this hard for me.”

“You shouldn’t taste so good, and I should have stuck with the coffee.”

Caleb sank his fingers into her hair and kissed her back.

He pushed her back against the sofa and she arched up, wanting to touch his body. The wine went to her head, and just as quickly as Caleb had her on her back, he pulled away. “I think it’s time for you to go home. I’m going to take you home.”

“Caleb?” she asked, frowning. “You didn’t want to kiss me?”

“I do. I always do.” He cupped her face. “But not like this. When I kiss you, you’re going to be alert for it. It’s not going to be something you forget the next day.” He pressed his head against hers.

“You make it really hard to fight this. I’m going to be a good man for you.”

July Catch up

Hi Everyone,

Can you believe we’re once again ending a month, and starting a new one! This year is going by so fast and what a year it has been so far. I’m completely blown away by the feedback, love, and support, I’ve been getting for Smokey. When I was writing his book, I was a wreck. I’ve been wanting to write a grovel book for so long, and I just knew, Smokey was going to be that guy. I never anticipated this kind of response and it really moves me to know you guys have loved his story, and felt every single emotion as you’ve read him. I’ve been asked quite a bit if I will be doing more books to this world, and the answer is yes. I can’t wait to delve in to see what else I can create. I will warn you, Smokey is not the only book I’ve wrote this year that completely wrecked me during the writing process, I’ve got a couple more to come. 🙂

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful July, and have an even better August. This coming month we’ve got the next book in The Hard Boys series and after that, we’re delving into Crude Hill High again. So much to look forward to. I wanted to let you know Evernight Publishing said yes on a brand new Dirty Fuckers MC book, so that will be coming soon as well. If you’re fans of my The Alpha Shifter Collection, I’ve had another story accepted in that series. 🙂 For more details, please check my coming soon page.

Thank you all so much.

Take care. Stay safe.

What’s Your price

Blurb

Gabe Moore gets everything he wants, and right now, he’s got his sights on Laura Smith. Unlike any other woman, she’s not intimidated by his power. His wealth doesn’t delight her. Only when he fires her does he get her attention.

The harshness of life has taught Laura she can only rely on herself. This crime lord monster won’t make her beg. If he wants her, he can have her, but she’ll never fall in love with him.

For the first time in his life, he’s the one doing the chasing. Laura won’t let him into her heart, only allowing sex. He’ll possess her body, but what he really wants is to own her heart, where he sees the pain she tries to hide.

He’s fifteen years her senior, but she’s the woman he’s been waiting for, and there’s no way he can let her go—even if it means putting her life in danger to be with him.

Smokey

Blurb

Just out of a bad marriage, Ava isn’t looking for love. She’s ready to live her own life in a new town, opening a bakery. She never expected to cross paths with Smokey, the dangerous president of the Hell’s Bastards MC.

Smokey wants the curvy blonde sitting alone at the bar, and he always gets what he wants. From the start, he explains it’s just sex, nothing else. Ava doesn’t expect more and promises herself she won’t fall in love with the bad biker, but Smokey gets under her skin. He can’t let her go, and now he thinks she works for his enemy. The pain of his punishment will stay with her forever.

When the truth comes out, Smokey knows he’s hurt the only woman he’s ever cared about. After he loses her, he has no choice but to win her back. Ava won’t give in, though. He hurt her, shattered her trust, and destroyed her heart.

How can he win what he broke?

New Release: Bred By Her Alien Abductor

Blurb

Ella spends her days studying rocks. It’s not glamorous work, and her funding is next to nothing, but she hopes to prove life exists beyond Earth. What she doesn’t count on is being used as a breeding vessel to save an alien race. She’s kidnapped and taken far from Earth for only one purpose. She tries to revolt but it’s hard when her captor does such wicked things to her body. 

Dhiro travels to Earth to find a fertile mate. The future of his planet is at stake, so failing is not an option. He’s never met a human in the flesh, but his studies conclude they’re a primitive and violent race.  He’s pleasantly surprised when he finds a female soon after landing. She’s lush, in touch with her emotions, and will make the perfect mate for him. 

There are others on Dhiro’s plant with fertility issues. Can he keep Ella safe when they try to take her for themselves? And will their union even save his world at all?

Excerpt:

He’d made it.

The blue planet filled Dhiro’s viewscreen as he prepared his ship to enter the atmosphere. He’d been dealing with numerous technical problems the past few hours, so it was a relief to finally reach his destination. It had been an excruciatingly long, mind-numbing trip through space. But it would all be worth it once he found a breeding vessel to carry on his lineage. An heir was all that mattered.

His two brothers said he’d never make it—it was too far, too dangerous, and the Earthlings may not even be compatible with their DNA. But Dhiro had done his research, and the Earth females were the perfect match. Although primitive in comparison, they were physically compatible, and he should be able to walk among them without detection.

With the repairs he had to complete on his ship before returning home to Trenu Zel, he hoped finding a suitable female would be quick and painless.

As he navigated the rough entry, his mother appeared on his monitor. She always chose the worst moments to make her appearance. “Yes, Mother?”

“Have you arrived safely?”

“Ask me again in five minutes. I’m attempting to land right now.”

“Please be careful,” she said. “I want you to return home safely, with or without a mate.”

He held his breath for a moment, then responded, “I’ll check in with updates. Take care of my brothers.” Dhiro turned off the monitor.

He’d come to Earth out of duty, a responsibility to keep their lineage alive. In all his planning, he’d failed to think of his Earthling conquest as a future mate, but he supposed that was exactly what she would be. He’d never allowed his mind to wander into territories of love and bonding. If she were a Trenuian female, their match would be blessed by their people. Dhiro was entering uncharted territory and would be the first to claim an Earthling. Some of the males on his taskforce laughed at the thought of him mating with a primitive species. He’d been the butt of jokes for months.

However, they wouldn’t mock him once he returned with the only fertile female on his planet. At least that was his plan.

Within seconds, the ship made contact with the ground, skidding and jumping as it created a great plume of dust. His body jostled in his seat, and anything not bolted down was tossed around the ship’s interior. When he finally came to a complete stop, he didn’t dare move. As the minutes passed, he finally took a breath and unfastened his protective belts.

He turned on the viewscreen. His ship had indeed landed on the Earth’s surface, but it was barren, no sign of humans or their civilizations. Just dirt, dirt the color of rust for miles.

No matter. He’d come here for a purpose and had no plans in calling it quits.

Dhiro tested the outside air before opening the outer hatch. He stood on the top step, taking a cautious first breath of Earth’s air. It wasn’t as fragrant as the air back home, but it was breathable.

The temperature was much warmer here, the intensity of the sun something he wasn’t accustomed to. His steps echoed on the metal stairs as he descended. There was nothing here, and since his ship would be out of commission until he dealt with repairs, moving to a more populated area wasn’t an option.

He put his hand over his eyes to scan the distant mountains. The sky was a unique shade of blue. The planet had its charm, but he was still glad this voyage was temporary.

Dhiro unfastened one of the outside panels to begin working on the ship’s exterior circuits. He’d start his search for a mate tomorrow after he rested for the night. One by one, he tested for faults in the equipment. It was a mindless task, the hours slipping by without notice. The sky began to darken as he completed his first of many tasks.

A distant scream immediately captured his full attention. He set down his tools and took several steps into the open to get a better view of the land.

There was nothing to see. Nothingness in every direction.

Again, the scream echoed along the mountains ridge and valleys. He decided to investigate. After strapping on his weaponry and protective vest, he began his trek along the vast, red land. The sun had slipped below the horizon, but his vision was equally effective in the darkness.

He’d traveled far, and the lingering heat was becoming an increasing annoyance. The cries grew louder as he walked, so he had to be very close. Animals growled nearby, and he wasn’t sure what creatures he may find in this region. From his research, nothing on Earth could be a threat to him, so he plodded onward.

As he turned the corner of a low mountain, there was a small chasm with scant greenery. Plumes of smoke from a recently doused fire drifted up into the sky. And five feral beasts were closing in on a lone human. A female.

He watched. Stunned to see one in the flesh.

Then he snapped out of his trance and moved to act. The moment she noticed him, she called out.

“Help me. Please help!”

The need in her voice drove his protective instincts into overdrive. He wasn’t sure if it was due to his three decades on the taskforce or a primal connection to this human.

As he approached, the animals turned their attention to him, creating a circle of attack, one he knew well, but from much more threatening beasts on Trenu Zel.

The first one lunged, but he caught it by the throat in midair. He examined the beast as it struggled and yelped. He’d never seen one of these creatures, and his curiosity for the new world piqued. When the female whimpered, he snapped the animal’s neck and waited for the next to attack.

One by one, he killed the hairy beasts with his bare hands. They weren’t worth the effort of unsheathing one of his weapons. He dusted off his hands as he neared the female crouching low behind her smoldering fire pit. She still carried a large stick in her hands. Trembling hands.

“I won’t harm you,” he said.

She nodded repeatedly, looking at her own hands as she dropped the makeshift weapon. “T-Thank you. I thought I was a goner.”

He reached out a hand to her, and after a pause, she took it. Dhiro pulled her up to her feet but was surprised she barely reached his chest in height. Women on his planet were comparable to males in height, but he found her tiny size endearing.

“What were those beasts?”

“Beasts? You mean the wolves?”

“Yes, the wolves.”

She ran a hand through her blonde hair. It flowed down her back even though disheveled. He’d never seen the color before. Everything about her appealed to him.

“I’ve come out here so many times, and I’ve never had a problem with them before. If I’d known a wolf attack was a possibility, I never would have ventured this far alone. Well, not this late.”

“You’re afraid of the wolves?”

“Of course, wouldn’t anyone be? Well, not you, I guess. How did you do that, anyway? You didn’t even use a gun. I’ve never seen anything like it.”

“I’m a superior adversary,” he said matter-of-factly. “They’re not smart hunters. The others would have been wise to escape after I killed the first one.”

She stared at him. “When I was ten, I was attacked by one of them.” She pulled up the edge of her shirt, showing him a deep scar on her side. “I’ve been terrified ever since.”

Dhiro didn’t like that she’d been marked by one of those filthy beasts. If she’d been on Trenu Zel, their technology would have ensured she had no lasting scars. But she’d been born on a primitive planet at no fault of her own.

“I can protect you from the wolves,” he said.

“Yes, I know you can. What’s your name, anyway?”

“Dhiro.”

“Dhiro, that’s different. My name’s Ella. Ella Sinclaire, aspiring noteworthy geologist.” Then she held out her hand. He wasn’t versed in Earth customs and wasn’t sure how to respond. The first thing that came to mind was to hold out his hand in the same manner.

She laughed, a sweet, musical sound. “Okay then.” Ella grabbed his hand in hers, yanking it up and down. “Nice to meet you, Dhiro.”

She’d completely slaughtered the pronunciation of his given name. But all he could focus on was the intimate contact she’d forced on him. The feel of her skin against his.

He expected this mission to be easy, like choosing a pet. No emotion. No attraction. Ella was human, after all, an inferior species. This entire trip was a necessity, not a pleasure.

In the matter of minutes, everything changed.

Dhiro had found his mate.

How can he win what he broke?

Excerpt

The information he’d gotten on Ava’s husband had given him enough details to know the man was a bastard. A fucking piece of scum of the highest order. What pieces of paper didn’t give him were actual accounts of what the asshole had done to Ava. The abuse she’d taken at her ex’s hands. It sickened him. No, it infuriated him. He wanted to kill the fucker, slowly and painfully. He was good at torturing. In the last few years, he’d become a master at it. Hearing men scream was something he relished. 

He pushed all those thoughts aside because he didn’t want to be thinking about them while he had his woman so close to him. 

Stroking her cheek, he pushed her hair back. The hold he had on her waist moved down to cup her generous ass. He let the cheek go and slapped it. 

“Now do you want to know how a real man treats a woman?” he asked. 

“Yes.”

He lifted her in his arms. She let out a squeal. Her arms circled his neck and he chuckled. He didn’t go far. After shoving all the papers he’d been working on to the floor, he dropped her butt down on his desk and spread her legs wide. He stepped between them. “I’m willing to offer you a deal, Ava,” he said. 

“What?”

“I’ll show you how it is between a man and woman, and in return, you give yourself to me. Completely. You’re not allowed to be with anyone else. You’re all mine to do with as I please,” he said. 

“You won’t hurt me?” 

“I have no reason to hurt you, do I?”

She licked her lips and nodded. “I agree.” 

He put his hand on her chest, pushing her down on the desk. “Hold on.”

She tried to grab the desk, and he sat down in his chair. He took her feet, placing them on his knees. 

Touching her ankles, he traced up her calves, hearing her gasp. The fucker hadn’t even taken the time to touch Ava. She was deprived of so much, but he had no problem with that because he was going to make up for it. 

He stroked up to her knee, then down again, taking his time before he went to her knee. This time, he used his mouth, kissing inside her knee and trailing his lips up toward her core. 

Smokey slid his hands beneath her ass and dragged her back against him. He pressed his face against her pussy, sliding his tongue through her slit. Ava cried out, arching her back. 

She begged and moaned for more as he flicked his tongue across her clit. Back and forth, working her pussy until she shook beneath his hold. 

He let go of her ass and took the lips of her pussy in his hands, spreading her wide with one hand, and with the other, he pressed a single finger inside. She was so tight but soaking wet. 

In and out, he worked a single digit, then added a second. 

She thrust her pelvis up, trying to get him to take more. 

He pumped inside her, wanting it to be his cock, but for now, he was going to show her the kind of pleasure that could be had with just his fingers and mouth. 

Smokey took her clit into his mouth, sucking on the bud, driving her wild as he finger-fucked her pussy. Her cunt tightened around his fingers, and he turned, pressing against her G-spot, stroking her there, setting a fire that had her wild. 

This time, he didn’t stop. 

There was so much for Ava to learn, and he was more than happy to be the one to teach her. She’d already given herself to him. He wasn’t going to back out. What he did plan was for Ava to enjoy the pleasure of his cock, repeatedly, multiple times a day. 

She came on his tongue. Her release coated his fingers as he worked her pussy. She shook, and she was so wet some of her orgasm spilled onto his desk. 

When it seemed she couldn’t take it anymore, she lifted up on his desk and cupped his face, kissing him. 

He eased his fingers from her pussy, placing them on her thigh as he stood up. Breaking the kiss, he tilted her head back and pressed his fingers to her mouth. “Open.”

She did so and he slid them into her mouth. 

“Taste yourself. You’ve got the most delicious pussy I’ve ever eaten.” 

She sucked her cream off his fingers, and he gripped a fistful of her hair, keeping her head at the right angle to kiss her hard. He gave her a kiss she deserved. One that told her she was a fucking sexy piece of ass that deserved to be fucked, to be taken. 

She gripped his hips, tugging him close. 

“We have an oral contract, Ava. There’s no backing down. You’re a businesswoman. You know the terms.”

“We didn’t iron out the terms.”

He chuckled. “You, me, sex. It’s an open-ended topic. Nothing is off-limits. The only thing I can’t do is hurt you.” He kissed the tip of her nose. “And I have no intention of doing so.”

Gabe Moore gets everything he wants, and right now, he’s got his sights on Laura Smith. Unlike any other woman, she’s not intimidated by his power. His wealth doesn’t delight her. Only when he fires her does he get her attention.

The harshness of life has taught Laura she can only rely on herself. This crime lord monster won’t make her beg. If he wants her, he can have her, but she’ll never fall in love with him.

Excerpt

“Hello, Laura.”

“Why?” she asked. 

“Excuse me.”

“The gifts. The jewellery. I can understand all of them. Little trinkets in an attempt to buy me off.”

“All of which you didn’t accept.”

“I have no reason to,” she said. “My work. My home. Make your calls. I want my job back. Now.” She took a step toward him as he rounded his desk and leaned against it. His arms were folded, and she hated that he looked amused by this meeting. 

“You haven’t mentioned your social media page.”

“I don’t give a fuck about them. They don’t pay the bills. My job, which I’m really good at, does. I want it back. You’re in the wrong.”

“You think you’re going to tell me.” He stood up. 

Most would be threatened by him. She knew in the back of her mind she should be screaming at herself to stop and back down. But this was her livelihood. 

The sane part told her to run and hide. 

The crazy part forced her to take a step forward, toe-to-toe with him, and stare him in the eye. “Yes. I’m telling you to make the call and give me back my job.”

“Why?”

“Because it’s not my job you want.” She put her hand on his jacket. She gripped it tightly and tugged him close so they were flush together. “I don’t need pretty toys, Gabe. Nor do I need you to take my job, my independence away.” She leaned in close so her lips brushed against his ear. “If you want to fuck me, then do so.” 

With her other hand, she cupped his dick, finding him already rock hard. 

Flicking her tongue across his ear, she bit down. Not too hard. 

“Or are you not man enough to ask?” 

Gabe grabbed the back of her neck and spun her around so she was bent over his desk. The movement caused some items on his desk to spill to the ground. He pressed his pelvis against her ass, and even though she was angry at him, she felt an answering pulse between her thighs. As much as she hated to admit it, he aroused her. She’d spent many times the first two weeks touching herself, imagining it was him. 

His lips pressed against her neck. His teeth scored against her flesh and she moaned. “What do I get out of it?”

“You’re used to taking what you want or women bending to your need. I don’t need pointless gifts, nor do I need my livelihood taken from me. You want to fuck me, just ask.”

“What about if I take?” He pressed a hand between her thighs. 

The grip he had on the back of her neck kept her still. He groaned. “Fuck, you’re wet.”

She spread her legs so he didn’t have any obstruction. The panties she wore were torn from her body within a matter of seconds. 

Sinking her teeth into her lip, she tried to contain her own pleasure, but it was no good. His fingers stroked between her slit, lightly touching her clit before moving down to plunder into her soaking wet cunt. 

He used two fingers, stretching them out before slamming in a third one. She thrust her pussy against him. 

Gabe let go of her neck to tug the edge of her skirt up and over her ass. She’d worn a pencil skirt that was tight to the body, but the fabric had some stretch to it, making it easy to pull up. 

He groaned as he exposed her ass. 

Flicking her hair over one shoulder, she glanced at him. “Fuck me, Gabe,” she said. 

He twisted his fingers, hitting a spot inside her that had her closing her eyes and sinking her teeth into her bottom lip. 

She was so close to an orgasm, so ready for it, but he denied her. He pulled his fingers from her pussy and trailed them back to her anus. She tensed up as he pressed a single finger against her ass. 

Laura cried out, turning away, but not before she saw him spit onto her ass and then push a digit inside her. There was a burn but an undeniable hit of pleasure as he pressed in and out. 

The hand on her neck returned and pulled her back up. A finger deep was in her ass as his teeth sucked at her neck. 

“I will make the calls, give you back your job, but you belong to me. Your body is mine to do with as I please. Every single part of you belongs to me.” 

She whimpered.

“That is the only bargain. You get what you want, and I own you. Every person has a price, Laura. What will yours be?” he asked.

Hi Everyone,

It’s the end of June already and what a month it has been. Two standalone releases, an anthology (co-written), and a co-written book with Stacey Espino. All of which I had so much fun writing. What was also big about this month, I celebrated my ten year anniversary as a published author. This was so crazy and insane. Honestly, I’ve spent a great deal of time reflecting on the past ten years and I can’t believe how far I’ve come. This has been one incredible journey that I hope is just the start of a lot of ten year celebrations to come. I want to say a big thank you to all of my readers for your love, support, and continued patience with me. I love all of you and I’m so grateful to each and everyone of you who have been there for me. Your words, comments, messages, emails, they mean so much to me. Thank you so much for taking the time to write them, but to also take the time to read my books. Thank you all so much.

I can’t wait for the next ten years. Here’s hoping to another ten years.

I can’t wait to show you what’s coming in July.

Take care,

Sam

Callie tries to look at the positive side of life—despite her dire circumstances. She’s the underdog, stepped on by her boss, her landlord, and her own family. When a new customer shows interest in her at work, it’s impossible to resist his charm. Their budding romance becomes her only joy in life, but when she finds out he’s keeping dark secrets, Callie wonders if she really knows him at all.

Brick knows he screwed up by hiding the truth from Callie. It just felt so damn good to be looked at with affection rather than fear, and he soon became addicted to the rush. Once he starts falling hard for her, he can’t bring himself to tell her he’s the VP of the Straight to Hell MC. Brick can’t risk losing her. But how long can he go on living a lie?

With a rival club rebuilding and a rat in their midst, Brick wonders if it’s even safe bringing Callie into his world at all.

The Biker’s Dirty Little Secret

How can something so wrong feel so good?

Callie tries to look at the positive side of life—despite her dire circumstances. She’s the underdog, stepped on by her boss, her landlord, and her own family. When a new customer shows interest in her at work, it’s impossible to resist his charm. Their budding romance becomes her only joy in life, but when she finds out he’s keeping dark secrets, Callie wonders if she really knows him at all.

Brick knows he screwed up by hiding the truth from Callie. It just felt so damn good to be looked at with affection rather than fear, and he soon became addicted to the rush. Once he starts falling hard for her, he can’t bring himself to tell her he’s the VP of the Straight to Hell MC. Brick can’t risk losing her. But how long can he go on living a lie?

With a rival club rebuilding and a rat in their midst, Brick wonders if it’s even safe bringing Callie into his world at all.

Excerpt:

They’d been in church for the past hour, and Brick was itching to call Callie. Every night, they’d talk for hours, sometimes about nothing at all. She soothed him, made him feel alive for the first time in forever.

“We burned their club to the ground,” Lord said. “They’re persistent fuckers.”

“They have no senior members left,” said Brick. “We took them all out. Who the fuck do they think they are?”

“Boss, they’re a joke. Nothing to worry about,” said Reaper.

“I’m not worried, but I also don’t plan to sit back pretending they can’t become a real pain in the ass at some point.” Lord scrubbed a hand down his face. “Keep eyes and ears open. I want to know when they wipe their fucking asses. Understand?”

Everyone agreed before they started to head out. He checked his watch as he stood up.

“Brick, stay behind,” Lord said.

Fuck.

He had a feeling Lord was on to him. His intuition was legendary. Callie was Brick’s dirty little secret, a separate life away from the club. He didn’t want to tarnish her innocence with the truth of what he really was. It was safer that way, too.

“You find out anything about our rat?” asked Lord. He stayed seated, but there was something in his eyes.

Brick paced, not wanting to share his secret but also not wanting his prez to think he was betraying the club. The brothers strayed all the time, fucking anything that walked in and out of the club. There weren’t any rules that said he could only enjoy club pussy, so why was he so damn nervous?

“Still working on it,” he said.

Lord was silent. Brick wanted him to say something, accuse him, anything.

“And the Skull Nation, they’re a bunch of pussies. Say the word, and we can finish them off together, like the good old days.”

His prez only nodded. Slowly. “Keep an eye out for the rat.”

Once Brick was out of the room, he closed his eyes and took a breath. He felt like a traitor and didn’t want Lord thinking he was. Brick was one hundred percent loyal to the Straight to Hell MC and always would be. The club was his life.

Anything Lord ordered, he made it happen. He was loyal to a fault, and it helped that Brick was a brutal motherfucker with a complete lack of empathy when it came to rivals.

Once in his room, he crashed on his bed, staring at the ceiling. Was he blind? Pussy whipped? He’d berated so many brothers when it came to women, even judging Lord when he took Ally as his old lady. Women were a weakness, and Brick had always been against the whole idea of love and family.

It was time to take a step back. He rolled to his side and grabbed his cell phone. Callie Johnson had a history, and he’d be a fool to rush in blindly without knowing everything about her. The safety of the club had to come first.

He did some research on his own, then texted Copper to dig up more dirt on the down low. Copper was their in-house hacker, even known for putting the local police department in the dark for forty-eight hours a couple of years back. Within the hour, the techno whizz sent him an email with all the dirt.

Brick was scared to open it, not wanting any of this to end. He actually looked forward to waking up in the morning. Before this affair, there’d been some days he considered putting a bullet in his head.

He scrolled through the email.

Callie wasn’t so simple after all. She had a dark past and fucked-up family. The things she had talked about were all the truth—her grandmother’s death, her job, the place she lived. He couldn’t blame her for leaving out all the messy details.

If she was anything like her family, she sure hid it well. From what he’d come to know of her, she was the exact opposite, and it only made him want to shelter her even more.

He’d keep the information to himself for now. Brick knew some of the characters she was involved with and most were bad news. Sean Rigby, for one, was a notorious loan shark. Why would Callie get hooked up with that piece of shit? She needed Brick in her life to protect her. It would be so easy for a sweet girl like Callie to get soiled by the wrong people—people like him.

The next day, he rode out to the building center. They had lunch together several days a week. He was itching to get more serious with her but kept holding back. Some days he questioned everything about their unorthodox relationship.

He walked over to the picnic bench where Callie sat. Her big smile lit him up from head to toe.

“Hey, stranger.” Brick straddled the bench seat next to her.

“You didn’t call yesterday.”

He shrugged. “Had a busy night.”

She fiddled with her lunch bag, looking over her shoulder on occasion. He didn’t like the vibe he was getting from her.

“You okay?” he asked.

“It’s nothing. Just some difficult customers. My boss doesn’t like me to get involved, but at least I’ll get a longer lunch out of it.”

Difficult customers? His hackles immediately went up and visions of him gutting the pricks who took out their frustrations on his woman filled his head. He took a cleansing breath.

“You know you don’t have to take shit from customers, don’t you? It’s a job. That doesn’t give anyone the right to treat you like garbage.”

“I know it’s just a job, but it’s a job I really need. It’s okay, though. They only come around a couple of times a week.”

He gritted his teeth to keep from saying anything further.

Brick refocused, tucking some hair behind Callie’s ear. The sun picked up the color of her eyes. She was a beauty. When she leaned into his touch, his entire body reacted. He was doing exactly what he claimed he’d never do—falling for a woman. And he hadn’t even fucked her yet. He was completely out of character.

“Yo! We’re waiting to cash out.” Two men walked toward the picnic table. Callie immediately tensed up.

“Is Jeff not in the office?”

“No, nobody’s in the fucking office. Are you going to sit out here on your fat ass or do your damn job?”

Brick stood up, but Callie wrapped a hand around his wrist in an attempt to pull him back down.

“And what the fuck do you want, big boy?” asked one of the men.

Before he could speak, Callie spoke up. “Please, he’s just a chicken farmer. We don’t want any trouble.”
