He’s Italian, older, a gorgeous tattooed Harley lover… and the one man I can never have.
From the moment Saint Lisconti moved in next door and recklessly stepped all over my favorite rare tiger lilies, it’s been war between us. Now, three years after our first encounter, hate simmers down, giving way to heated stolen glances that leave me drowning in his piercing ocean blue eyes.
Our attraction blooms. Sparks I crave to unravel fly. Everything changes.
Saint becomes my savior. The reason I find poetic beauty in life. He’s thirty-six, burdened by the scars from his past I so desperately want to heal. I’m eighteen, a good girl, but no matter how many times Saint warns me away, I find myself breaking all the rules for a taste of the forbidden.
Because Saint isn’t just a guarded bad boy… he’s also my father’s best friend.
And when he agrees to wanting more, all bets are off.
But as I fall deeper, our love may be the very thing that breaks us when fate twists with our plans…

Saint is the bad boy that moves in next door to Paisley and her father. Soon the two men become fast friends, which leaves Paisley irritated. You see, while moving in, Saint did the most atrocious thing possible to Paisley, he stepped on her flowers and ruined them. Saint is Paisley’s biggest enemy, but how things change over time. 😈
Oceans of Us is angsty with a splash of love/intrigue at first sight. It is a slow burn, full of ups and downs, and baggage. Beware, it is a big book, but gives a clear picture of Saint and Paisley’s relationship.

Tiernan. Tiernan stole my heart. Was it the obsessive side of him? Possibly. Was it the emotional side of Tiernan that peeked through? It very well could be, but I think it’s something more. It really was the evolutionary growth between Tiernan and Bianca both individually and as a couple.
Beautiful Nightmare is so thrilling and captivating. It was full of mystery, intrigue, H-O-T encounters, secrets, and lies. Tiernan, Bianca, Brando, and ‘The Gentleman’ stole my heart. I want more!!
“He was this contradiction only my heart could decipher. A lovely monster. A beautiful nightmare.”

Even if she wasn’t, the painfully beautiful woman is a shameless flirt—a free-spirited whirlwind of emotions. She shouldn’t appeal to me in the least. I’m looking to settle down and am desperate enough to allow the meddlesome residents of Landry to set me up. Aria Davenport isn’t on their list of suitable options, I made sure of that. Beyond our age difference and her relationship with my sister, the woman is my polar opposite. But for one night, I give into temptation and let my need for her take over.
ARIA After years of secretly pining for Garrett Caldwell—the grumpy and elusive hot town doctor—he finally looks my way. Maybe it was only once, and maybe that was exactly what we agreed to, but that one scorching night ties us together for the rest of our lives. An unexpected pregnancy changes everything and certainly has this small town talking. Suddenly he claims to want more and I can’t keep the doubt from creeping in.
