Synopsis
They told me I’d be an escort; they made it sound so easy.

Really I’m just a high priced call girl.


Desperation brought me to this and it led me to him, my one and only client.


Hating him is easy, he reminds me of my shame.


Wanting him is wrong it fills me with guilt.


Loving him is a losing battle yet it’s become everything.


A gift and a curse, he consumes my every thought and I’d rather play my part in his bed than to spend one day without him.

My Review

“I don’t give myself time to think about it before I dial the number on the card. She answers on the second ring, her voice like silk and I know that life as I know it is about to come to a disastrous end.”
What a great escape! I literally didn’t move until I was done!
This stand alone is the perfect example of why I can always get lost in this authors’ words. Beautifully written even when speaking of the taboo, the minute you start from page one you’re hooked.
Jackson and Sage’s initial meeting isn’t one that normally happens but when you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place, you may just turn to drastic measures. They just never thought it would be more than business. When I first started into the story Jackson was an experienced SOB but the more you got to know him, you realize that’s just a façade. Sage is that sweet young woman who is naïve enough to go to the dark side and get caught up in survival. However the chemistry between these two is undeniable and full of so much more.
I loved reading and getting to watch as Jackson and Sage opened up their layers and started allowing themselves to just be. Contractual started out as one book then developed into another, evolving into a sweet, satisfying HEA. If you haven’t picked up anything by Alice yet, now is the time. You won’t be disappointed.

THE BOYS OF SUMMER

After first shift disasters, rude wealthy tourists, and a taunting ex boyfriend, Tess is convinced nothing good can come from working her summer away. However, Tess finds unlikely allies in a group of locals dubbed ‘The Onslow Boys’, who are old enough to drive cars, drink beer, and not worry about curfews. Tess’s summer of working expands her world with a series of first times with new friends, forbidden love, and heartbreaking chaos.
All with the one boy she has never been able to forget.
It will be a summer she will always remember.



AN ENDLESS SUMMER

With the new threat of putting the Onslow up for sale, Amy reluctantly turns to a local tradesman for help: Sean Murphy, the very same Onslow boy who saved her life all those years ago. With his help and that of some old friends, the task is clear: spend the summer building the hotel back up to its former glory or lose it for good.


In an endless summer, Amy soon realises that sometimes in order to save your future, you have to face your past, even if it’s in the form of a smug, gorgeous Onslow boy.


THAT ONE SUMMER


Now the countdown begins to reach the others at Point Shank before the party is over and the new year has begun. Alone in a car with only the infuriating Chris Henderson, Tammy can’t help but feel this is a disastrous start to what could have been a great adventure. But when the awkward road trip takes an unexpected turn, Tammy soon discovers that the way her traitorous heart feels about Chris is the biggest disaster of all.


Fogged up windows, moonlight swimming, bad karaoke and unearthed secrets; after this one summer nothing will ever be the same again.

^SYNOPSIS^
Perfection. One word. Three syllables. Every reason why I’ll never have the one thing I truly want. I stand dutifully on the pedestal he’s built, waiting for the day he truly sees me. Then one amazing night, he lets down his walls, only to leave me the next day. Years have passed, and I’ve tried to move on with my life. But I still dream of him. I still miss him everyday. The memories haunt me. How can I look to the future when my past remains a mystery? The time has come to find the boy who stole my heart and ran away without a word. But not everyone who is lost wants to be found. My name is Alexandra Fontaine, and this is my story of unfinished love. Wings Over Poppies is book #2 in The Over Series and can be read as a standalone novel.

^EXCERPT^
I shift closer to him and wrap my arms around his waist. I lay my head on his chest and breathe him in. His shoulders relax, if only slightly. The need to comfort him is overwhelming. I want to wash it all away for him, hold the world at bay while I erase the worry permanently etched in his forehead. “Everything is going to be okay, West. I just know it,” I lie. I don’t know that everything will be okay. I don’t know anything at all. We sit in electrified silence, the crackling of dead leaves under us the only sound. I memorize the feel of him, the smell of him, the rhythm of his breathing. I’m lost in the moment, already anticipating the loss that’s to come. “I leave in a month.” The words cut through the silence like a judgment. Instead of hurt, I’m filled with resolve. I won’t let him push me away anymore. I’m done playing by his rules. I rise up to meet the storm brewing in his eyes. His hand wraps firmly around my neck, and his eyes dart hungrily to my lips. I swallow nervously and refuse to look away. If he turns his head or pulls my hair, I swear I’m going to tackle him to the ground. I lean in hopefully, somewhat expectantly, and close my eyes. His warm breath dances across my lips, and my every prayer is answered. He presses his mouth firmly to mine and stills, almost memorizing the moment. That one small touch is the beginning of the most memorable kiss of my life. It’s hello and goodbye, I love you, I’ll miss you, and everything in between. He sucks my bottom lip, and I inhale sharply, completely overcome. His hands dive into my hair, and his tongue slides against mine just once before he pulls away. He touches my forehead to his and chuckles softly. “What have we been waiting for all this time?” “You,” I whisper breathlessly, “I’ve been waiting for you.” My admission is all he needs. He devours me, a tangle of lips, teeth, tongues, and hands. I don’t know where I end and he begins. I’m exhilarated and relieved all at once. I run my hands down his arms and grip his wrists tightly. I pull away and look into his hooded eyes. “Tell me something, West. Tell me something I don’t know.” He runs a thumb over my swollen lips while he studies me. I’ve never felt more loved, more worshipped. “I can’t imagine a world without you in it. No matter where I am, I’ll always dream of you. It’ll have to be enough.” He places soft, scorching kisses up my neck until he reaches my ear. “God, I don’t think it’ll ever be enough.”
