About RECOVERED (Coming 3/27/18):

It was hate at first sight... Affton I hated Cable James McCaffrey. He was entitled, spoiled, a user…and an addict. He was out of control and didn’t bother trying to hide it. He had everything anyone could want but still seemed miserable and lost. Every move he made, every mistake he stumbled his way through, rubbed me the wrong way. However, I couldn’t stop myself from trying to save him from himself when no one else would. In the sweltering heat of the summer, Cable taught me that having it all means nothing if you can’t have the one thing you want more than anything else. Cable I was obsessed with Affton Reed. She was rigid, uptight, and no fun. There was something about her innate goodness that called to me. She acted like she was above all the normal faults and failures that clung to the rest of us like the scent of smoke after a fire. I was infatuated with her, but that didn’t stop me from acting like she didn’t exist. In the scorching heat of summer, Affton taught me that there is always a way back from the brink of despair. She showed me that the trick to having it all was realizing that it was already there, in my hands. All I had to do was hold onto it. The road to recovery is full of twists and turns no matter who is in the driver’s seat.

Synopsis:

Technically, you aren’t supposed to fall in love with your best friend’s girl.
When I was nineteen years old, I was faced with a choice that changed my life.
Keep the safety of what I already knew or risk losing everything with the young, hotheaded soldier who stole my heart.
I chose the wrong man, and for seventeen years, I paid in tears, blood, and shattered dreams for that decision.
Now, there’s a man in my house, holding a gun to my head on the order of my ex-husband—given from his prison cell.
That hotheaded soldier I was too afraid to choose? He’s now a six-foot-three wall of muscle who works at the country’s most premier bodyguard agency. I’ve always wanted him, but now, I’ve never needed him more.
It’s the call I’m terrified to make.
I’m sure he still hates me… Even though I’ve never stopped loving him.

Home from the Marines, Noah Cortez has a secret he doesn’t want his oldest friend, Kristina Moore, to know.

I was just his best friend’s little sister.

But he was always more than that to me.

After twelve years of pining over Patrick’s easy smile, baby blues, and captivating charm, I decide to take matters into my own hands—and completely blow my chance.

Who knew a self-proclaimed manwhore would decide to be a gentleman the first time I’m naked in his bed? Definitely, not me. But when I land there again, neither of us has any intention of stopping.

There’s only one problem: nobody can know. Especially not my three older brothers. If they found out, all hell would break loose.

So I’m willing to keep our secret. Because I want him Wright here, right now.

Chapter One

Tag

I’ll never forget where I was the day my world came crashing down around me.
I wish I had a better story. Something like, I was volunteering at a hospital, visiting sick children, when the news first hit. Or, I had just finished saving an old woman and her forty-two cats from a burning building when my agent called.
But no. I was sitting in the fucking drive-through at McDonald’s, waiting for my daily fix of salty goodness, when the radio newscaster interrupted coverage of the Seahawks game to drop what would turn out to be the most defining moment of my life thus far.
Charges have been filed against MLB star Ian Taggart, better known as Tag Taggart, of the Washington Rampage. Our sources say a young woman has come forward with allegations that Taggart sexually assaulted her after their division win last season.”
I didn’t hear what he said after that, my Bluetooth kicking on in my truck as I answered the call from Ray, my agent.
What had started as a simple stop through a pick-up window ended up being the catalyst to the worst period of my entire life. And, now, six months and hours and hours of turmoil, frustration, and a hell of a lot of anger later, it all comes down to this moment.
My career.
My life.
My future.
Coach Peters is sitting across from me with James Shelton, the Rampage’s GM, to his left.
Lucky for me, Mr. Lane couldn’t be here today. As the owner of the team, he generally tries to stay abreast of anything involving his players. He’s a little too involved, if you ask me. I’ve had far more meetings with the man in the past few months than I ever cared to have in my life. Add in the fact that he’s a class-A douche canoe, and…well, let’s just say, there are times when I’ve had to wonder if this is my punishment for the crime I didn’t even commit. Having to deal with Tyler Lane on the regular has to be worse than any prison cell could ever be.
And that’s right; you heard me correctly. I know that’s the standard answer all assholes give when they’re hit with a rape charge. And I know, ninety percent of the time, they’re lying through their teeth. Being a professional athlete seems to make some guys think they’re untouchable—a fact I can attest to from the hundreds, if not thousands, of times I’ve witnessed unwanted advances, unpaid tabs, drugs, and dozens of other less than savory activities. But I digress.
The fact is, I am not that guy. I love women. I respect women. Fuck, if I could build a shrine to women and worship at the altar of femininity, I would. Because, if there’s one thing in this world I love more than baseball, it’s the female body. But I would never touch a woman in any way that was unwanted or untoward.
The night I met Angela Hancock was the best night of my life.
We’d just won our division championship—a first in my seven years with the Rampage—and I was riding high. And I could think of no better way to celebrate than a night out with my teammates, a few bottles of Jack split between us, and a couple of willing females to keep us company.
I set my sights on Angela the moment I spotted her on the dance floor, her short black skirt and low-cut red top too mouthwatering to resist. When she took a break from her friends and headed to the bar to refresh her drink, I made my move.
Now, I’m not going to lie and say I had to work to get her attention. To be totally honest, I’ve never had any trouble finding a woman to warm my bed. With my muscular build, tan skin, and fucking adorable smile—you try to tell me dimples aren’t cute—I know I fit the mold of what women consider hot. And, before you start to think I’m a cocky asshole, let me stop you right there. There’s a difference between conceit and confidence. My teammate Simon Weaver is an arrogant fuckwit. Me, on the other hand? I radiate a smooth assurance that women can’t help but be attracted to.
To say getting Angela back to my room was easy would be an understatement. After one quick dance—if you could even call it that—we basically just dry-humped the shit out of each other for three minutes. And, with another shot of Jack for the road, we were on our way.
I might have had a few drinks, but I wasn’t drunk. And I can say with absolute certainty that everything that happened that night was completely consensual.
Angela slammed the door behind us and had my shirt off and her hand down my pants faster than you could say, Do you have a condom? I’ve always been a sucker for a girl who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to take control.
But, even in my lust-fueled state, I wasn’t too far gone to stop for protection and to make sure she understood what this was.
This is only for tonight. You got that, right?”
Not exactly the most romantic thing in the world to hear two seconds before some dude shoves his cock inside you, but as I said, I like to make sure a woman knows exactly what she’s getting with me.
She made no bones about my declaration, and the next few hours were pretty fucking amazing, if I do say so myself.
In fact, the only reason I remembered who she was when Ray called me to give me the deets on the woman pressing charges was because of what a fantastic lay she had been. Normally, I’m a love-’em-and-leave-’em kinda guy—all their faces sort of blurring together into one giant blob of sexy times.
Hey, I said I wasn’t a rapist. I never said I wasn’t a whore.

Title: THE HAIL YOU SAY Series: Hail Raisers Author: Lani Lynn Vale Release Day: January 11th Photographer: Furiousfotog Model: Stu Reardon

About THE HAIL YOU SAY

Get out! He yelled those words at the love of his life twelve years ago, and to this day, Reed Hail regrets them. He’s always been the type of person to speak before he thinks, and apologies have never come easy. It’s been over a decade since she was his, and he stubbornly thinks that he can keep on living without her. He couldn’t be more wrong. The last thing he needs is her vagina anywhere near his exam table. But nobody ever asks him what he wants. Maybe he should’ve gone into the auto-recovery business after all. I hate you. Krisney Shaw would take those words back in a heartbeat if she could. In fact, she would take back everything. Never meeting him would be the perfect place to start. The memory of Reed Hail haunts her—morning, noon, and night. Then, to add insult to injury, she has to see him being happy while she’s breaking a little more inside every single day. Reed Hail is her worst nightmare because she’s constantly reminded of exactly what she’s missing—the other half of her soul. Just when she thinks things can’t get worse, she’s sees his sexy, bearded face over the top of her paper gown, and she’s lost all over again. Don’t ever let me go. Both Reed and Krisney are determined to avoid each other. They do a great job of it, too…not. One ill-timed gynecological exam changes everything. One single second in time shows Reed what he’s missing—literally and figuratively—and suddenly he’s back at square one. The only problem with being back at square one? He won’t be able to leave her a second time. Especially since the first time around he didn’t have a child with her to consider.

REVIEW: This author is known to my one click finger as someone that's going to make me laugh and cry in every book. I don't even need to read the blurb...I want to read it. 

Reed and Krisney had it all until their world shattered. These two broke my heart when they went their separate ways. I was absolutely devastated by what Reed yelled at her. I cried with her when she left.

My emotions were all over the place with this one! I wanted to hurt people, like physically hurt them! I wanted to hug some too!!! Devastating loss, tragedies, things that no one should ever have to go through are part of this book. Love, so much love is also a part of this book. Second chances are so hard to do with the fear that it's not going to work this time. They have maturity on their sides though, words that should have been spoken get said.

I cannot wait for Dante's book. Seriously, cannot wait.


Excerpt

Routine. Just routine. Yeah, right. I knew this was going to be bad. I knew that I was about to do one of the stupidest things in the world. Yet, that didn't stop me from entering the infirmary. Every year we were required to see the doctor for an annual health evaluation. Mine was due two months ago, and I'd purposefully gotten out of it. I'd tried to get out of this one, too. However, my superior looked at me, grinned that evil grin of hers, and told me in no uncertain terms if I didn't do it, I'd be relegated to desk duty for the foreseeable future. She knew I hated desk duty. Talking to people wasn’t my forte. And now I was here. Going into the one place that I knew I shouldn't be going. The clinic in town was normally off limits. The clinic near the base had an older than dirt male doctor that I was fairly sure was a pervert who kept working because he didn't get to see pussy that young anymore. However, knowing that the old doc was off on the weekends, and Reed volunteered there for all the ladies that didn’t want to risk it with the pervert doc, led me to where I was today. Where I knew he was. Shit. Damn. Fuck. I’d gone to Germany to get away from him. He’d been assigned to the same base within a month of my arrival. It might’ve been a coincidence, but I knew it probably wasn’t. He did it on purpose. Just to watch me squirm. I swung open the glass door, waved at the secretary who I knew but whose name I couldn't remember, and signed in. "He's running about thirty minutes behind," the secretary said as she took my information. "I'll tell the ladies that you're here, though. You can go on back. The nurse will put you in a room.” Of course he was, because the motherfucker liked to talk. Fucker. Asshole. I walked back, met the nurse, and she guided me into a room. “Here’s the paper gown. You can go ahead and change here behind the screen.” The nurse smiled. “The part goes in the front.” I refrained from flipping her off. I knew which fucking part went in the front. I wasn’t a dumbass. “Thanks,” I muttered. I waited until she was completely out of the room before I changed, making sure the screen was completely covering every square inch of my body before I stripped my shirt off. My pants went next, then my bra, and my underwear. After slipping on the stupid gown—part in front—I folded the clothes precisely in on themselves, making sure that my underwear and bra were neatly tucked into my shirt before rolling my pants around the shirt. I did not want him to see my underthings. No sir-ree. He was already going to see my breasts and vagina today. I didn’t want him to see that I wore the sexy underthings for some stupid reason. Growling to myself, I picked up my phone and blasted off a text to my best friend. She was probably asleep, but she’d answer when she woke up. Somebody needed to be witness to this train wreck. Might as well be Hennessy.
