Sneak Peek Excerpt
Without warning, his lips crash into mine. At first I fight it, pushing hard against his chest, but he tastes like whiskey. Woodsy and smoky like a campfire, matching the intensity of his kiss. He melts away my anger with his mouth, leaving days’ worth of unrealized sexual tension in its wake.
I lean into him.
My knees go weak.
He isn’t something I wanted. Not three weeks ago. Not even three minutes ago. But as his hands slide up my back, coming up to circle my neck, I’m drowning in want. He tilts my head back to allow himself better access. My tongue tangles with his. Never in a million years did I envision this … how much pleasure I would feel from a simple touch. I guess sometimes we have to have our desires at our fingertips to realize their true depth.
When his lips leave mine, his hands stay. We went from one extreme to another so quickly … I’m not sure what will happen when he pushes the brakes. His face is close, like he wants to kiss me again, but his hands fall away from me instead.
One step back.
Another step. His back hits my bedroom wall.
“Do that again.”
As he exits the room, I’m left wondering what the heck just happened. That kiss took all the cells in my brain and tangled them. I never imagined this, and I hate to admit it but I liked it.
Lies Unspoken (Flawed Love #1)
I tried hard not to fall for the bad guy.
My new roommate, Blake, is a jerk—an unemployed artist with a chip on his shoulder. I can’t stand him unless his hands are on me. He makes me desperate for him, and everything he makes me feel.
And then there’s my new boss, Pierce–successful, charming, and extremely good-looking. He goes after what he wants, but what does he see in me?
I try to stay away, but I end up in the arms of exactly who I was hiding from. And when I find out what’s being hidden from me, my heart twists in ways it never should.
I thought I knew him.
The way he kissed me.
The way his hands traveled every inch of my skin.
I thought it meant something, but as it turns out, it was all lies unspoken.
I really don’t even know where to begin with this book. I’m still in shock over the ending. To say that it ends with unresolved business is an understatement.
Desperate to start her life over after a recent breakup, Lila leaves Nebraska and moves to Chicago searching for her new beginning. Not long into this journey to start her new life, she meets two very different men.
On the plane to Chicago, she meets gorgeous business man Pierce, who she finds is easy to talk to and she’s relaxed around him. Before she even gets settled into her new apartment, she meets Blake, who is also gorgeous, but infuriating.
As Blake and Lili spend time together, they soon give into the attraction that has pulled them together since they met. Blake tells her upfront that he doesn’t want a relationship, and Lili is okay with that. She can tell he has pain buried deep, because she recognizes it herself.
Lili soon finds herself working for Pierce, and can’t help but to be attracted to him. Although the feeling is mutual, Lili doesn’t feel the pull to him that she does with Blake, even knowing that Pierce would be a safer option for her.
When Blake and Pierce cross paths, Lili instantly becomes aware that they share a very unpleasant past, which has left the two men hating each other. Lili wants to know what the cause of their hostility towards each other is, but neither is open about the issue.
I wasn’t expecting the twists in this story, and I really didn’t expect this book to end the way it did. My heart is broken for one of these men, and I can’t wait to see what Lisa has in store for us next in this series. 5 well-deserved stars.
