Book Blurb:

Imogen There is no way we can still love and cherish one and other. When I married Theo Walsh, the rough, bearded townie who worked construction on my family’s summer house, I’d found my happily ever after. That was before the fighting. Before the jealousy. Before the infertility. We’ll be divorced long before death does us part. But to secure my place in the family dynasty, there is just one more hoop I have to jump through. And I need him to do it. Faking the marriage we once thrived in will gut me. Especially with the secret I’m carrying. Theo I would have sacrificed for her until the end of time. My job. My home. My happiness. I’d given it all up to marry her. That’s how much I loved Imogen Weston, the daughter to one of the world’s richest families. From the day we met, I’d done nothing but try to live up to the man she expected to be with. And now, I was done. Sure, I’d complete this one final ask of hers, even if it destroyed me. But I’ve made her promise the one thing that might save me. She swore that after she got everything she ever wanted, she wouldn’t look back. I made my wife vow to leave me forever.

DARE ME AGAIN by Shelly Alexander

DARE ME AGAIN by Shelly Alexander is available TODAY. Check out an excerpt below and pick up your copy now!

 

About DARE ME AGAIN

Love is a risk worth taking in this sizzling romance about secrets and second chances…

Scarlett Devereaux’s life on the Gulf Coast went from riches to rags so scandalously fast that she barely had time to kiss her Jimmy Choos goodbye. Now, with a new alias (Lily Barns), a new budget (tighter than a pair of Spanx), and a new job on the vacation island of Angel Fire Falls, she’s daring to reinvent herself.

Single dad Trace Remington is devoted first and foremost to raising his young son, who has Asperger’s. With flying his floatplane and salvaging his family’s island resort too, he has time for little else. His brothers think he needs a break from his all-work-no-play lifestyle, so they goad him into action. In response to their dare, Trace asks a sexy tourist for her number, only to discover afterward that she’s the resort’s brilliant new hospitality manager.

The sparks of flirtation soon ignite into a flame too hot to ignore. But Lily and Trace both have pasts that threaten to tear them apart. Now, they’ll need to admit their secrets to each other…or risk ending their relationship before it really begins.

Read an Excerpt from DARE ME AGAIN

Rebel let out a heavy sigh and straightened. She’d wondered how long it would take for shit to get real. Maybe there was a hashtag for that she could use. “Go ahead. Just say it.” He gave her a look that said he had no idea what she was talking about. “Say what?” She crossed her arms. “Whatever’s on your mind. Whatever makes you feel better, because there isn’t just an elephant in the room. There’s an entire herd of elephants, and judging from the sound of your grinding teeth, they’re about to stampede.” She cocked a hip and waited. Waited for the very thing she’d tried to avoid years ago. His disapproval. His disappointment. Regret washed through her. Breaking up with him through a note had been cruel. But at the time, it was her only option. If she’d told him the truth about her circumstances, if she’d told him about the horrible secret she was keeping for her dying mother, she was pretty sure he would’ve given up his scholarship and come home to go to community college on the mainland just to be her support system. That would’ve been the only thing worse than him hating her for leaving him without an explanation. So it was time to face what she’d done, even if it meant hearing harsh words from the only man she’d ever loved. Instead, he stewed in silence. She wasn’t sure which was more awful. His jaw hardened, and his eyes turned icy.
Yeah, the silence was much more awful. “Go on.” She couldn’t stop her foot from tapping nervously against the cement. “I’m a big girl. I can take it. I’ve been through much worse than a few scathing words from an ex-boyfriend.” Rem moved to her side. Elliott studied her, finally drawing in a deep breath. “It’s ancient history. Forget about it. I know I have.” Oh.
Her foot tapping stopped.
“Let’s focus on the camp,” he said. “That’s all I care about. Then you and I can go back to our lives.” She swallowed down the sting in her throat. She thought he’d ask why, want answers, or just plain tell her off. She’d been terribly wrong.
More than answers, more than having his say, what he obviously needed was for them to go their separate ways. Again. Something sharp pricked at her heart. Breaking up had been the last thing she’d wanted, but what would a homeless teenager with no prospects have to offer a Wharton grad who was going to have a world of opportunities at his feet? Especially if the truth about what her mother had done ever came to light. So she’d broken up with him and told him to move on without her. She just hadn’t realized how much it would hurt if she got what she’d asked for, even after all these years.

About J. BENGTSSON

A professional stay-at-home-mom for twenty-one years, Jill started her writing career in 2016 after reading a really bad rockstar romance. Although she had no previous writing experience and no desire to become an author, Jill was convinced she could write a better story. And so began Cake: A Love Story. She wrote the novel for fun and added every single thing she’d ever wanted to read in a romance. Embarrassed by her newfound hobby, Jill kept her writing a secret from her family. When the story was complete, she turned to Amazon to get the feedback she desired. Not thinking the book would ever sell, Jill planned to pull Cake off Amazon once it got a review or two but that never happened because, within a week of its release, Cake began to soar up the bestseller charts. Not only was Jill shocked by Cake’s success but now she had a whole new burgeoning career on her hands…and some explaining to do. Needless to say, the news of Jill’s secret book bay came as a complete shock to her husband and three children. Jill is now a full-time writer. Website | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter

Excerpt:

“Gemma!”

She glanced in the direction that her dog had run. She hated storms. Her parents and Kyle knew that. Why hadn’t they helped her? Anger seethed within her. They hadn’t helped because they wanted to leave Daisy behind.

Well, Daisy was hers, and if she had to leave her friends and her home, she wasn’t leaving her dog.

“Gemma!”

She ignored both her parents, who were now shouting her name as she raced after Daisy. If she had to carry the forty-pound dog to the boat, then that’s what she’d do. Just as soon as she found Daisy.

Another flash of lightning bathed the land in light, giving her just a glimpse of the dog as she headed toward the house. Gemma ran as fast as her seven-year-old legs would carry her. She reached the house and Daisy.

“Hey, girl,” she said to the terrified dog. “It’s going to be all right.”

It took her four tries before she was able to lift the dog. She shook badly, but at least she wasn’t trying to get free. Gemma knew her parents were going to be furious with her. She didn’t know why they were sneaking away in the middle of the night in a storm, but the fear in her father’s voice and her mother’s face let her know that the questions would have to wait.

In less than two hours, they had packed up all they could and put it on the boat her father owned. She’d asked where they were headed, but her parents hadn’t answered and her brother had shot her an irritated look.

Once she got on the boat with Daisy, she hoped someone would tell her something. She hated not knowing what was going on. Kyle didn’t care. He always said that their parents would tell them when they needed to know.

Gemma stumbled and fell to her knees. She pitched forward so that she had to release Daisy in order to catch herself, but she managed to keep a tight hold of the leash and pull the dog back to her. Daisy seemed to like being held, so she didn’t put up a fight.

“I’m coming!” Gemma shouted, hoping her family could hear her.

She couldn’t see the dock through the driving rain and dark. Which was odd. There was supposed to be a light on the dock. She knew the way to the water, so she hadn’t gone the wrong way. But...why wasn’t the light on?

I'm a good girl. I work hard, follow the rules, and only want a future with Mr. Right, complete with a white picket fence, 1.5 children and a dog.

What do I have instead? A "Dear Jane" email from my ex, who CCd it to my best friends and their fiancés. My friends realizing that I've never had an orgasm is the cherry on the train-wreck cake of my love life.

So my new plan? Find a nice guy who can give me an orgasm before my best friend's wedding.

Enter CJ. Not only is he tall, rich and scorching hot, but he's super smart. He makes me tingle in places I've never tingled before. He checks all my boxes but one- commitment. He thinks that's what you do when you run out of women, which in his universe is NEVER.

But he wants me and won't take no for an answer. He pops up as best man at my friend's wedding, at my office, in my home. He's sending me flowers, chocolates, coffee beans, you name it. Plus he kisses like he invented the action. It's like he knows all my weaknesses and is launching a siege.

Then my life implodes, and I learn that being good is overrated. Can the wild player handle this former good girl?

My review of The Measure of Home by Krista Sandor


In high school Monica Brandt received a scholarship to attend the local private school and became best friends with Courtney Wilkes. She lived with her grandma above their family bakery and she wanted to fit in with the “rich kids”.

Gabe Sinclair works for his dad’s moving company and delivers newspapers. He has always had feelings for Monica but she has not really noticed him until one night when he helps her out.

When Monica leaves town to follow her own dreams, her Oma gives Gabe a chance to follow his dreams as well. When the two both return to Langley Park years later will there be anything left between them? Will the reason Monica came back to Langley Park follow her back?
This is another great book in the series and I am really enjoying them.

Monica was a great character right at the beginning and then I was mad at her for leaving Oma and Gabe. I understood that she wanted to follow her dreams but the way she just left them both broke my my heart after everything they both had done for her. I was so sad with the situation that Monica found herself in at the party as that was not fault of her own and freaky!!

Gabe was able to make something of himself but he was exhausted and done with leading the life he found himself in. I was glad that he decided to take some time for himself and get his head together by heading back to Langley Park.

I loved how both Gabe and Monica but everything aside to help Oma after she was injured and the two slowly began to talk everything over and figure out where they were both at. I loved how things began to progress between the two of them and it made me happy!

The reason Monica returned to Langley Park was extremely relevant and I wondered how everything was going to come together. I totally was not expecting what happened and who was involved! Loved the twists and totally shocked at the one revelation!

 The very end was awesome and I loved how it all came together!
