SYNOPSIS:

What good is running AWAY when you only end up lost?

Cassandra Pierce had her whole “perfect” life planned out by her parents. One night of pure weakness and lust has her running away from it all and seeking refuge in Alamosa with her best friend. But it seems life has other plans for her when she finds herself lost in the small town of Keaton.

Jason Bradley is a charming country guy. He lives a simple life that’s nothing like what Cassandra is used to. A single moment in life changed everything he thought he once knew, leaving him with a broken heart and an unplanned future.

What happens in Keaton is nothing Cassandra or her heart could have ever prepared for. The instant connection she shares with Jason is no secret, but what they’re keeping hidden from one another is. Will these two be able to find a way to trust each other or will their secrets tear them apart?

EXCERPT:

It was hard to sleep; I was tossing and turning more than ever before. The butterflies in my stomach were in full force as I recollected about each kiss Jason gave me; on my lips and on my bare skin. My thoughts were interrupted as I heard the beeping on my phone. I saw the light illuminating my room as I reached over to grab it; it was a text from Jason. I was suddenly extremely grateful I let him plug his number into my phone after we left the garage earlier today.

Are you asleep yet?

How could I be sleeping? His lips just rocked my world; my heart was racing too much to be sleeping.

Not a chance.

Me either.

I put my phone down and got out of bed. I didn’t know what else to do so I let my body decide. It would have argued with my brain either way. I let my infectious craving for his lips guide me downstairs to his room as I quietly crept to his door.

I took a deep breath and tapped on his door. He swung it open immediately as if he knew I was on the other side. The room was dimly lit, but I could see just enough. He was standing there in nothing but boxers; I couldn’t help but look him up and down from head to toe. His mouth was open and his breathing was heavy as his chest rose and fell quickly, matching mine. It didn’t take long for the hunger inside to take over. He stepped forward and grabbed a hold of me, pulling me close to him as he took us over to his bed. I didn’t know where we were going to take this tonight, and quite frankly, I just didn’t care; all I knew was I needed to be with him. It could have been Jase, it could have been my hormones, but every part of me was craving his touch. I got a taste and I needed more.

“Cassie,” he whispered.

“Shhh,” I whispered back. I put my finger over his mouth. I didn’t want to hear what he was going to say, we had done enough talking for the night.

I stepped up closer to him, raising myself on my tippy toes so I was closer to his lips as I pressed mine hard against his. I heard a small moan escape him as he tangled his hands in my loose hair, pulling us onto the bed.

We fell onto the bed and I positioned myself with my back against it as Jason hovered over me, his arms on either side. I took my hands, placed them on his scruffy face, and pulled him closer to me. Somewhere between being pulled onto the bed and Jason hovering over me, our lips had lost each other; this was not going to work for me. I didn’t even have to pull hard as his lips curled up and lowered down to my face. “I’ve never seen you like this Sweetheart,” he whispered into my ear as he nibbled on it.

I was sure a soft moan escaped my lips as he took my ear into his mouth. “I’ve been holding it in,” I told him.

“I can tell,” he said quietly before running his lips down my neck then into the curve of my shoulder. It was making me shiver from my neck all the way down to the aching spot between my legs. He was trailing his way down my neck when I suddenly realized I needed to take off what was keeping him from continuing further down.

“Wait,” I breathed out. Jason lifted his lips from my skin as I wiggled my arms enough to slip off the cami I was wearing, throwing it to the side of the bed. He closed his eyes and let out a deep breath.

“Damn Cassie, you are going to be the death of me.” He opened his eyes back up, piercing them into mine. I needed more.

“Please keep going,” I begged him.

“You don’t have to beg, but it’s so damn sexy when you do,” he said softly as he brought his lips back to my skin, taking his time as he moved further down to my bare chest. He slowly grazed his lips across each breast before making his way down, trailing kisses until he got to the top of my yoga pants. He was driving me wild; I was having a hard time not ripping all my clothes off. This was not normal for me, but I loved every moment of it. He was bringing out a side of me that hadn’t existed before, and I hoped it didn’t go away.

I grabbed his upper arms and rolled us over so I was on top of him. I could feel that this was just as good for him as it was for me, as his excitement was sitting between my legs.

“Enjoying yourself?” I asked in the sexiest voice I could find.

“You have no idea. Now get down here,” he said as he pulled me down to his lips, biting down on my lower one before smiling and finally pressing our lips together again. Kissing him was what I always imagined it should feel like. Not wanting our lips to ever be apart because they felt too good pressed together. I knew deep down kissing had to be that amazing or people wouldn’t be so passionate about it. I completely understood it now and I could finally say the feeling happened to me. Jason, he made it happen, he was the spark that lit my lips on fire. I couldn’t help but go insane inside as his lips continued to kiss me like his life depended on it. I slowly released my lips from his and began placing kisses on his chin, running them all the way down from his chest to the very top of his boxers. I slowly raised myself up and loved seeing the satisfied grin plastered on his face. I put my hands on his shoulders and caressed them all the way down, feeling his chest form goose bumps as I did. I took my index finger and traced a line along the top of his boxers, making a soft moan rumble through him. I lowered myself back down on top of him; his hands grabbing my back as our bare chests collided together. I leaned my mouth close to his ear, whispering into it. “I know you green light this.”

That must have sparked something in him because I heard a growl escape his throat as he rolled us back so he was now hovering over me once again.

“Just so you know, I’m not this guy. I’m not normally the guy who has a hard time controlling himself. You seriously have me going crazy right now,” he said with a heavy breath

“Just so you know. I like it.”

REVIEW BY SUE ELLEN

Away was by far a very emotion rollercoaster of a book! But I will have to say I enjoyed every moment of it. The author created an amazing novel which you will definitely feel like your part of it, there were times where I cried and others where I was happy. This book was about finding yourself and learning to love again. Which everyone sometimes needs to remember that in order to love you have to love and understand yourself first. I enjoyed how the author brought everyday struggles to this wonderful story and made it into something more. The main character has to learn how to adapt when her life has taken a different turn and she thinks she is able to run away from it only to have something else that seems worse happening to herself. Sounds like your life sometimes, I know it does mine. It definitely made me think on how to handle some of these everyday affairs! However, sometimes things faith and it is when Cassie and Jason meet. Both of these two have their own way of hiding from their secrets and yet form a bond to overcome and learn to trust each other. Cassie learns that there is more to life and sometimes it is better to slow down and who better to show her than a good country boy named Jason.

The author did a fantastic job with her debut novel! I loved this book and would recommend it, just make sure you are ready to be taken by your seat and keep something to wipe your tears. Trust me you will not want to put this one down until the very end.

Excerpt

I stood at the cold dark water’s edge, my reflection staring back at me from the glasslike surface. The reflection of a girl that I no longer knew. I breathed in the overwhelming scent of pine and recognized the tranquility that surrounded me. The soft hum of the city in the distance, the echo of an eagle’s cry overhead, the steady drum of my heart—the only sounds that could be heard in the quiet serenity that was present all around me.

Inside an entirely different scene existed. Whirling thoughts, like hurricane-force winds, blew through my mind while a dark, thunderous storm was raging inside my soul, cutting the power to the central organ of my existence—my heart. I was destined to weather this storm on my own. After all, like Mother Nature, I was the controlling force behind these conditions.

I threw a stone into the mirrored surface of the water before me and watched the small circular wave expand from the point where it broke through the stillness.

It was hard not to think of the stone as the choice I had made, the choice that inevitably created waves in the smooth waters of my life. The first lie, like the first ripple in the water, seemed so small but quickly became more significant. Each wave growing in size and depth, impossible to stop. The effect from that one choice spread through my life like the ripple moving across the surface of the water.

I longed for the stillness

REVIEW BY SUE ELLEN

Love this cover because of the way the colors blend into each other. Can you truly ever leave the past in the past? Usually no, it always has a way of catching up to you especially whenever you go back to a small town. Kendell thought things would be different this time after all those years of leaving everything behind and making something of herself, but she was wrong when she returned and ran into the love of her life Adam (whom she thought she had let her feelings go of). The characters where young during those times and of course thought that they knew what was best, or so Kendell did. Years later she has returned. The author has brought her back for one reason which is tragic but could lead to reopening a new hope. However, will the truth destroy everything that the Kendell worked to keep locked up or will it make it stronger.

 

 

I loved these characters because we all were young at one time and probably have done things that we thought were for the better or because we “were right” however it hurt someone else in the end. The emotions are so high in this book that I didn’t want to put it down because I felt like I was right there and felt each emotions that they were going through. The author brought in details to help you with just enough emotions that they were not overpowering but kept you hooked onto wanting to know what they would do next. And let me tell you she had me hooked through the heartbreaking and also the heartwarming of it all.  This book had it all for me the laughs, the tears, the love, and the steaminess!!!!

Can Adam and Kendell forgive each other for what happened in the past and work for a future? Read it I promise you will not be disappointed this is definitely a book I recommend and will want to read again in the future.
