It’s the beginning of her new life . . .
Twenty-three year old Amy Miller has been responsible for her little brother ever since their dad dropped dead and their mom took off six years ago. Now that her brother is eighteen, Amy’s ready to fulfill her dream of opening her own stationary store.
But the past has a way of sneaking up on you . . .
Then an old friend comes back to town–Amy’s high school boyfriend, Hunter Morgan, to be exact. The same guy who dropped her a week before prom, leaving her a sobbing mess in a sequined Jovani dress. The same gorgeous man who now wants Amy back and won’t take no for an answer.
And the future has a way of getting complicated . . .
But when Amy meets Ryan Anderson, an irresistible Brit and powerful businessman tied to Hunter’s company, their instant attraction and chemistry awakens a passion in her she never knew existed. Ryan is dangerous and sexy, pulling her deeper into a new world of desire where anything goes, while Hunter is determined to use all his old tricks to posses her again—body and soul. Soon Amy is torn between her incredible first love and the most desirable man she has ever known, but is she just a pawn in a wicked game? And if she surrenders herself to passion, will she be left a loser in love all over again?

“Penny for your thoughts,” I said, surprising myself. I never say things like that, but he looked so serious, sitting there in the midst of the party, pensive and alone. I was determined to lighten his mood, though maybe the four wine coolers had something to do with it. I smiled and moved closer to the bench “I’m Amy. And you are?”
“I’m busy and don’t have time for this now,” his said tersely in a British accent. I couldn’t believe my ears. How rude. And if he was so busy, why did he bother coming to the party anyway? He turned towards me, and right after being taken aback by his perfect green eyes, I noticed an iPhone pressed up against his ear.
All at once I realized how foolish I was–he hadn’t been talking to me at all. He’d been so quiet earlier, and through the noise of the party, I hadn’t noticed that he was obviously in a deep conversation. How many of those wine thingies had I had? Who knew, but it must have been a lot more than usual. I had better be careful as I was coming to realize that maybe, just maybe I was a little bit trashed.
He looked up at me slowly and held one finger to keep me at bay, the way you would gesture to an errant assistant when interrupted. Ew. No thank you. “What am I, one of your subjects?” I murmured.
He turned toward me, obviously hearing the snarky remark I’d just made.
“Hang on Jason,” he put his hand over the phone. “No, you’re not, but you could be,” he said, an incorrigible grin on his face. What a condescending ass.
Now I wished I hadn’t wandered over. Sure he was good looking–well actually he was gorgeous–but I wasn’t going to wait for someone I didn’t even know, no matter how well-built he was or how sexy his accent. But as I was about to turn and walk away, he ended his call and looked up at me, straight in my eyes. It was a sweet look, nothing like how he had sounded a moment earlier, like we were in on some private joke together. I could feel heat spreading through my chest, and I almost felt like giggling. The way his eyes sparkled, it felt like he already knew me.
There are so many highs and lows for Amy Miller, who is the main character of DARE ME FOREVER. I really like the girl, so it wasn’t so nice of me to put her through all this drama 🙂
While writing the book I listened to a bunch of different music.
Here is a playlist of some of the top songs.
I’m a romance reader and writer with my first book DARE ME FOREVER (April, 2013) and mom. I love sweet, steamy, happy endings! And complicated men.
