SAY IT SEXY (Say You Love Me #1)
Book 1 in the Say You Love Me series, starring a group of male friends—hot young Hollywood heroes and hard-partying rock band bad boys—each on the verge of meeting the girl of his dreams.
This life I’m relishing—the women, booze, and parties—won’t last forever. But while it does, I’ll take it all in with no regrets. Pleasure stands paramount. When I party, I forget all the trash that’s happened in the past. It’s the same when I’m acting, when I become someone else, someone not afraid to feel or make others feel. It’s what I live for: The next party. The next role. The next girl.
That’s my life. That’s the way I want it to be.
Except now I’ve met Gwen…
Garrick Maze, young Hollywood’s hottest bad boy, just landed the male lead in a new network television series. Known for indulging in wild parties, casual hook-ups, and fast cars, he spends his days on set and his nights on the town. Love’s the last thing on his mind, especially when it comes to his ice queen female lead.
Gwendolyn Vickers intends to be America’s next celebrity sweetheart and that means keeping her public image pristine. The last thing she needs is to be linked to trouble-making heartthrob Garrick Maze. But he’s shamelessly flirty and sexy as sin. Her body craves him. Soon, so does her heart.
When secrets from the past clash with the bright lights of fame, Gwen realizes there’s more to Garrick than washboard abs and sex appeal. He’ll prove that when it comes to mixing mind-blowing pleasure with true love, he’s not about to let her down.
Say It Strong (Say You Love Me #2)
Book 2 in the Say You Love Me series, starring a group of male friends—hot young Hollywood heroes and hard-partying rock band bad boys—each on the verge of meeting the girl of his dreams.
I’ve seen and done it all—sex, drugs, rock-n-roll, and then some. I’ve made the cover of Rolling Stone. I’ve won Best Rock Performance at the Grammy’s. I’m living a life of fame, wild tours, crazy money, and insanely hot women. But the one woman I can’t get is prim and proper cellist, Abby Chan—gorgeous, natural, talented as all sin. The first time we met, I knew we would be something special. She’s not convinced, but I am.
Now I’m going to prove she’s all the woman a wild man like me will ever need…
Liam Collier, sexy and enigmatic frontman for Point Break, the world’s hottest rock band, is at the top of his game. With two songs in the Billboard Top 10, he’s a rock-and-roll bad boy, known for his trademark falsetto as well as his proclivity for partying and hooking up with gorgeous women. For Liam, falling in love was something he figured would happen far off in the future—not on the first day of his first world tour. And not with his super sexy but extremely reserved background cellist.
With a Master of Music degree from Juilliard School of Music, Abby Chan is on the road to becoming a cellist for the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. But to pay back her expensive education, first she has to travel another kind of road—a gig playing cello for the North American leg of a garish rock band’s world tour. She’d expected hard work and long hours, but what she never expected was the intensity of her reactions to Liam Collier. He’s sweet. He’s hot. And despite being surrounded by roadies and the world’s most beautiful women, he’s set his sights on her.
When classical music meets rock and prim propriety meets a carefree attitude, Abby and Liam venture outside their comfort zones. What they discover is that living wild is the perfect preparation for flying high—on love.
