A girl who has everything. A guy who has everything to lose.

Some things can’t be…

RUSHED

Alexis
Like there has ever been any doubt which sorority my family expects me to pledge. I’m a third-generation legacy. On the first day of rush, I realize I’m in trouble. I’m not like the other girls in the house. But as long as my parents control my college funds, resisting is futile. Until Zach, the live-in houseboy, who’s quite possibly the hottest guy I will ever meet, serves me a cupcake and flashes me a sympathetic look. With one enigmatic smile, he flips my heart and my world upside down. My parents will cut me off if they even suspect I’m interested in a house guy. But I can’t stay away from him. And so I pledge the house for all the wrong reasons.

Zach
Living in a sorority? I get flipped a load of crap about being a live-in servant, the help. Easy access to the hottest girls on campus? Not with the unbreakable rule—get caught with one of the girls and you’re fired. Immediately. Lose this job and I can’t afford college. I sure as hell can’t ask my parents for help. They wish I’d never been born. Considering what I did, I don’t blame them. I’ve learned to think of the girls like sisters. Until Alexis pledges the house. Now sister is the last thing on my mind.

*** Standalone novel. No cliffhanger. ***

Ellie

My mother is a liar, a seductress, a keeper of family secrets, and a master manipulator. She took Austin from me. Now she claims she wants forgiveness. But she’s after Logan. I know she is. He thinks he can protect me from her. I love him for trying, for playing hero, but he doesn’t know her like I do.

Excerpt

Ellie

I hated my mother. She’d done it again. This time from across the state. Intruded on what should have been one of the most beautiful moments of my life. After swearing for my entire existence I’d never have sex with any guy I wasn’t totally sure was long term, I slept with Logan Walker. Trusted him with my heart and my body. He was so sweet, thinking he could protect me from Mom. That anybody could. He didn’t know her like I did. Didn’t know how cunning she could be. How devious.

Just like I hadn’t known it was possible to feel such an intricate cocktail of emotions—love, lust, ecstasy, total happiness, fear, and blinding rage. It would have been absolutely heady, except for the anger. I’d kept my fury under control while I’d been with Logan, focusing all my attention and thoughts on staying in the moment with him. The guy had literally had a heart in his hands. A balloon heart. But still, how could I resist that? And the sweet, funny way he’d stocked up on protection? And how he couldn’t stay away from me, no matter how hard he tried?

But now that I was back in my dorm room, thoughts of my mother and her Snow White’s Evil Queen Stepmother act popped into my mind. Or maybe she was more like Alice in Wonderland‘s Queen of Hearts playing a giant chessboard with my life. What was her game? What was her next move? Whatever she had planned, I had to stop it.

My hands trembled as I pulled my cell phone out. I took a deep breath. She and I had been estranged since she slept with Austin, my boyfriend before Logan. And I left her and came to college to find my bio dad, Jason Front. I had a delicate new relationship with him and his wife and baby. Mom could destroy all that, too. She didn’t know I’d come to the university to find him. She didn’t know he was here at all.

I hesitated on the verge of battle. I had to risk it. I’d chance anything to keep her away from Logan and me. I stared at the phone another second as I gathered up my courage. We hadn’t spoken since before Christmas. It was nearly March now. She’d take my call. I knew she would. In fact, I was certain she was waiting for it. I hit the button that dialed her and braced myself.

“Ellie!” She picked up before it even rang. That was how confident she’d been that I’d call. That was how expectant she was.

Which put me even more on edge—what did she want? Melissa Ann Sawyer always wanted something. She never gave anything away and she never played for free.

“Leave Logan alone! Stay the hell away from him!”

It was the wrong way to lead. I’d let my anger get in the way of my scheming and common sense. I’d forgotten my own chess metaphor.

She laughed. “So you finally slept with him.” Her voice was amused and as nubby as raw silk, not quite her usual polished self. But as grating as ever in its confidence. “I was wondering how long you’d hold out. He’s a handsome boy. Now you can finally stop blaming me for ruining your life. You’ve turned out just like me.”

“Not just like you,” I said. “I’m not pregnant.”

“That you know about. Be extra careful, Ellie. We’re fertile girls when we’re young and careless!” She laughed again.

Mom had a laugh for everything, like life always amused her, even when it was tragic. Even when there was absolutely nothing funny about it. This time it felt like she was laughing at herself as much as at me.

“I didn’t say I slept with him.” And I hadn’t said I hadn’t. Semantics were everything when playing with Mom’s fire.

“Of course you have. That’s why you’re so protective and possessive of him now. He finally felt close enough to you, confident enough to tell you that he and I have been talking. And so you rushed to protect him from big, bad me. It all adds up. And I can tell from your voice you’ve lost your virginity.”

“You cannot.”

She’d used that “I can hear it in your voice” tactic on me since I was little. I’d outgrown my belief in her magical abilities to read voices and see out of the back of her head.

“I hear it in your denial.”

“Just stay away from him!” I pulled the phone away from my ear, ready to hang up.

“Or what?” Devoid of laughter and completely serious, she was the ice queen, full of menace.

Excerpt

I’d barely finished refreshing my makeup when my phone buzzed with a text from Logan. I’m at the front door.

The dorm was locked at all times. You needed a key to get in. I texted him back. Coming! Ha ha. I grabbed my coat, gloves, and tray, slid the tray beneath my coat for stealth, and dashed to meet Logan. Just before I opened the front door to the dorm it struck me—maybe we should have stolen three trays. What was Logan going to do for a tray? Take turns?

My heart caught when I saw him, just like it always did. He was so incredibly hot, even bundled in a snowboarding jacket and black and gray beanie, the kind that flopped over the back of his head. I shouldn’t have worried about the tray. Logan was carrying one.

He grabbed me and pulled me against him, kissing me with that fierce passion I lived for. His tongue was hot and talented in my mouth, giving me tingles all the way to my toes. When he pulled away, I was breathless.

He tapped my chest. “New bra? I don’t like it. Too hard and plastic-y. Has a nice, hollow tap, though.”

I laughed and pulled the tray out from beneath my coat. “Smart ass. I was being covert. The university will give you three to five hard labor if they catch you lifting one of these.” I pointed at his. “Where did you get that?”

He shook his head and laughed. “The dining hall. Almost four years ago.”

“You’re supposed to return that after you use it.”

He grinned. “I have every intention—when I graduate. This is a four-year loaner model.”

“I see.”

He took my gloved hand in his and led me out from beneath the covered front porch. “Isn’t it gorgeous?” he said, but he was staring at me. “You look good enough to eat.” He nuzzled my neck.

I laughed and pushed him away. “Wolf.”

“Yeah,” he said, pulling me along.

The streets were full of students playing in the white stuff.

“Where are we going?” I asked.

“Only to the best damn traying hill on campus.” He led me to the large grass hill between the architecture building and the honors hall. It was covered with students sledding down on trays. The sound of laughter echoed off the buildings.

“If the university ever wises up and actually wants to catch tray thieves, this would be the place to look,” I said.

“Yeah.” He nodded. “If you see campus security coming—run! It’s every man for himself.” He kissed me again and pulled me to the top of the hill and tray run. At the top of the run, he pulled a small piece of snowboard wax and a lighter from his pocket and grinned evilly. “Give me your tray.”

“What are you up to?”

“Take a look at everyone else as they slide down the hill. These things need a little help.” He winked and used the lighter to melt the wax onto the bottom of my tray. Then he pulled a tri-shaped scraper from his pocket and scraped the excess off and buffed it. He sat the tray on the ground in front of me. “You’re good to go. Hop on. But be careful. This thing’s going to rocket.”

I shook my head. “I’ll wait for you.”

“I’m ready to go. I waxed my board at home. Now get on.”

He held my tray while I sat and wedged myself on it. “Hold on to the edge of the tray. These things have a way of scooting out from under you. Keep your feet up and aim straight for the bottom of the hill. On my count, push off. Three, two…” He slapped his tray on the hill next to mine. “One!” He gave me a push, jumped on his tray, and we were off.

His tray slid right and true down the hill, passing me almost immediately. He had the technique down. I wobbled and got sideways, falling off my tray less than halfway down. My tray slid away from me. Logan was already at the bottom. He ran up and retrieved my tray, then gave me a hand up, pulling me into his arms.

“I suck.”

He shook his head and kissed me lightly as the snow fell on us. “First time’s a bitch. You’ll get the hang of it.” He grabbed my hand and pulled me to the top again.

The second time, I got it. And it was like flying—the best thing ever. Better than sledding. Better than boarding. ‘Cause I was with Logan. And about a thousand other students on the hill. But they hardly seemed to exist at all, except to add to the joy with their laughter and squeals. I screamed all the way down.

Logan beat me to the bottom of the hill. I tumbled off my tray into the snow just as I reached him, laughing. He caught my tray and grinned at me. “Well?”

“Again!”

We ran back to the top of the hill, hand in hand, carrying our trays, and went again and again. The seventh or eighth time down, I tumbled off my tray and rolled flat onto my back at the bottom of the hill, looking up into the falling snow as it caught in my eyelashes. Laughing, I opened my mouth to catch snowflakes and waved my arms in the snow, making a snow angel.

Logan rolled on top of me, poised above me, braced on his hands in the snow, studying me. “You’re so beautiful, El. So beautiful.” He kissed the tip of my icy nose.
