Tristan Williams thought the path of his life was on the

right journey. He had a successful career, good looks, and a carefree

lifestyle. One conversation changed Tristan’s way of thinking forever as his

father presented him with a bottle, representing his journey and forcing

unwanted thoughts of a lasting relationship to the surface. Running from the

fear of commitment, he pushed away the only woman he ever had feelings for and

turned to the one girl he knew he didn’t love.

Ryn Webster was finally putting her past behind her. Moving

to Texas and concentrating on the success of her own company, she had her life

almost where she wanted it. One thing was missing though…love. She thought she

had found love with Tristan until he casted her aside.

After being hurt by Tristan, Ryn does whatever she can to

push him from her heart, even if it means being with a man she doesn’t love.

Regardless of the path one thinks they are on, the journey

of life can cause unexpected turns, altering the planned course. Will Tristan

and Ryn’s bottle be tossed about, lost in the rocky waves of life? Or will calm

seas prevail to help Tristan and Ryn finally find their journey of

love…together?

PROLOGUE

I had been sitting on the beach for the last hour just staring out at the black

ocean. I tipped the beer bottle back and drank the last of my beer.

“Well hell. Looks like I have to go back,” I said as I got up and brushed the sand

off my pants. I turned and looked back at the house. My brother Lark and his

new wife, Azurdee had left two hours ago for their honeymoon and I couldn’t

take watching Ryn another second.

I sucked in a deep breath of salty air and slowly let it out. My phone went off and I

pulled it out of my pocket. I let out a deep breath when I saw it was Liberty.

Liberty: Just letting you know I’m thinking about you. If you

want me to join you I’ll come down. Just text me back and I’ll be there.

Me: I think I just need some time to think, Liberty. We need this

time apart.

Liberty: I didn’t mean to push you. I’m always pushing you, I

know. I just really wanted to see your parents and would have loved to have

seen the wedding but I understand you have your reasons for going alone. Things

haven’t been so great with us lately. I’ll work on that. Promise.

Me: We’ll talk when I get back to Austin.
Liberty: Okay. I love you, Tristan.

I let out a sigh and shook my head. I’ve never told Liberty I loved her. I wasn’t sure

anymore how I felt about her. We had been on again and off again so many

times I was beginning to lose count. Currently, we were off. All she had been

doing is pushing an engagement ever since she found out Lark and Azurdee were

getting married. When I thought of my future I didn’t see Liberty. I only saw …

Ryn. And that scared the piss out of me.

I turned my phone to silent and shoved it in my pocket. I started heading back to the

house and began putting on my game face. The one I’d been wearing for the last

ten months. The one where everyone thought I was happy, but deep down inside I

was the unhappiest I’d ever been in my life.

I walked up the stairs to the deck and the first person I saw was Ryn. She was leaning

against the railing with her head back and her eyes closed. There was no one

else out here.

She looked tired. I smiled when I thought about what I had overheard earlier when

Mom and Azurdee’s best friend, Jessie, were talking. Ryn had taken a two-week vacation

and was renting a house on the beach just two houses down from here. I already

began planning ways to ‘run in to her’ while we were both here.

She hadn’t talked to me in over ten months. No matter how many times I called and

left her messages begging her to call me, she never would.

Her cell phone rang and she quickly answered it. I walked around to the other side of

the deck and sat down to where she couldn’t see me.

“Hey, Dodge. Are you on your way? Yes. I thought I could, but I can’t. I need you.”
Dodge? Who the fuck is Dodge?

She laughed at something he said and then she let out a sigh. “Well, considering I

still need my RFB, I’d say yes … it’s been a sucky last three days.”

I peeked around the corner and saw her smiling. She reached her hand up and began

playing with her nipple.

What the fuck?

“That sounds like heaven. Yes. I’m going to need it a lot. I don’t know, you’d think

after all this time you’d have been able to fuck him out of my head and heart.

Maybe you’re not as good as you think you are?”

My mouth dropped open and I quickly turned back and stared out in the night sky.

She laughed again and said, “I’m still at the wedding. Yes. It was hard to see him.

I don’t know. Maybe, I’ve thought about that. Yes. I realize I only use you for

sex to forget about Tristan, but maybe I’m falling for you and just want your

company. You ever think of that?”

My heart started beating faster and I wanted to pound this asshole’s head in.

She let out a sigh and said, “Okay. I’ll see you then. Oh trust me. I’ll be waiting and

I will most certainly be ready for you. Yes naked. Hey, Dodge? Hurry please. I

need to be fucked in a bad way. Bye.”

She let out a sigh and then I swore I heard her crying. I slowly stood. She was looking

out toward the ocean. Her shoulders were moving up and down and when I saw her wipe away her tears, my knees about

buckled out from underneath me.

I started making my way toward her. I didn’t want to walk up on her crying, so I cleared

my throat and asked, “May I join you?”

She quickly wiped her tears away and looked the other way. “It’s your house,” she

whispered. “How have you been, Ryn?” She turned and looked at me. If looks

could kill, I’d be on the floor right now. “You’ve ignored me for

three days and now you ask how I’ve been?”

I shrugged my shoulders and said, “I wasn’t sure you wanted to talk to me.” She let out a small laugh.

“Usually people attempt to talk to a person before they make

that assumption.”

“Well, considering I’ve been calling you for months, and you ignore my calls—” She took a step back and shook her head.
A look of hurt moved across Ryn’s face as she slowly said, “You’re seeing … another … girl.”
“It’s not like that. We are kind of off and on. I mean … I’m not seeing her right now.” She rolled her eyes before looking into mine.
“Do you have any idea how much you hurt me?”

My heart felt like it was physically hurting as I swallowed and said, “I just thought

… I wasn’t planning on—” I looked away and then back into her eyes.

“I thought you just wanted to have fun, Ryn. Then you started acting different

and I started having these feelings and … I was confused.”

Anger replaced the hurt in her eyes. “The only thing that confused you is why you

brought the wrong girl to meet mom and dad.”

She turned and began walking into the house. I wanted to call out for her but I

couldn’t. My heart felt like it was squeezing in my chest as I stood there and

listened to her retreating footsteps.

I turned and stared out at the dark ocean again. That’s what my heart felt like.A dark deep sea of … darkness.

Synopsis

I met Mathias Sloan in a club.

Truth.

I didn’t know that he was my new piano instructor for the next six months…

Truth.

We would come together and fall apart. After him, every man was ruined.

Truth.

If I knew what I know now, I wouldn’t have walked to him. I would’ve turned and run…

LIE.

Excerpt

I looked back on my time with Mathias Sloan as an experience—one that couldn’t be dodged or ignored. He swept into my life like a hurricane, destroying everything in his wake.

Because of him I learned that there’s a learning curve to love. Because of him I realized that there’s always that one person that destroys and sends you back into the world to fend for yourself. And it doesn’t matter how hard they hurt you. Whether you like it or not, the scars on your heart spell out their name.

You will always remember them.

I knew I had to get this over with. Swallowing loudly, I opened the door. He turned around. And there he was. All six feet three inches of him.

Mathias Sloan.

His hands were tucked into his jeans. His dirty blonde hair was cut short. A five o’clock shadow appeared on his face. I remembered what that stubble felt like against my neck.

Tension was etched in his hazel eyes. He looked haggard, like he hadn’t slept in days.

But it didn’t matter what he looked like; my heart beat against my chest, begging to burst, and reach for him.

“Hi,” he said deeply.

I gripped the doorknob so hard, my knuckles turned white. I tried to force words out of my mouth, but nothing would come out. I just stood there, staring at him with wide eyes.

“Can we talk?” He nudged his head toward the cobblestone street behind him, and when he turned, the sunlight reflected on my ring.

I quickly put my hand behind my back, but it was too late.

His voice faded into nothing and his eyes clouded over. For a second, I saw fear. A flash of anger. And then, something that I never thought I’d see from Mathias: hurt.

Thousands of questions appeared in his eyes. The last thing I wanted to do was answer him; the longer I stood there the further I drifted from my fury.

“I’m marrying him,” I blurted out. My voice was shaking. I knew if I stayed here, so close to him, I would crumble and I would be back at the beginning.

Mathias took a step back, as if I’d punched him. He stared at me with hurt and accusation. “What did you do, Katja?”

review 1
This was my first book by Laura Ward and let me tell you it will not be my last.  I absolutely LOVED it!!  What a beautiful love story that evoked such emotion from me and I was seriously sad to see it end.  It is one of those books that really touches you and you don’t want to put it down but at the same time you want to savor every word of it and don’t want it to end.  I fell in love with the characters.  Liz and Reynolds were AMAZING!! Plus the 3 boys stole my heart.  Even though Reynolds is a star, he is so relatable and yummy you will instantly fall in love with him.  Liz is the type of female character that I yearn for.  Strong, emotional and full of an inner beauty she is the best friend you can only dream of having.  I loved that the characters were a little older and more mature, plus the addition of the 3 boys makes it that more realistic.  I know we read to get away from reality sometimes but there is something about this book that will make you connect in ways that I didn’t know were possible.  It is simply beautiful.  A story of love, loss, growth and learning it’s ok to love again.  I am simply in awe of it.  Thank you so much for the opportunity to review this Laura.  I will be a fan for life!!

Cover Reveal ~ Sidelined by Emma Hart

 

RELEASE DAY: MARCH 2, 2015

 

 

 

 

SIDELINED EMMA HART AMAZON KINDLE EBOOK COVER (1)

Three people. Three motives. Three reasons.

When the game leaves the field in the second book in the USA Today bestselling BY HIS GAME series and mixes with sex, lies, and betrayal, the future isn’t the only thing on the line…

Macey Kelly has sworn off men. Unless they’re going to zip in and out of her apartment—and her vagina—quicker than they can give her an orgasm, she’s not interested. Finding out her boyfriend of three years got her cousin pregnant was a total confidence knock. Luckily for Macey, confidence is

something she has in abundance, so all Mitch’s asshole move did was make her pretty cynical toward men.

The last thing Jack Carr needs at the start of the season is for a dark-haired, sexy as sin, gyspyesque beauty to be consuming his thoughts. Football is his life, which leaves no time for girls. Unless they’re the love ‘em and leave ‘em girls. Becoming one of the best running backs the league has ever seen by racking up the yards is his top priority… not bedding Macey Kelly, despite her affinity for blow jobs and total sexual abandon.

Avoiding each other is the perfect solution, but when your best friends are in a serious living together kind of relationship, that isn’t always an option. Sometimes, sex on tap is the easiest option. And the sweetest.

Until Mitch shows up with a bombshell that could shatter Macey’s perfectly carved out life. It’s been a year, but he isn’t giving her up, not now he has a chance at winning her back. And he knows her buttons. Every single one of them.

Unfortunately for him, Jack Carr isn’t a loser. The star running back has his eye on the Vince Lombardi—and on Macey. But seeing her hanging between them both isn’t something he’s down with, not when he discovers why she’s so against anything more-ish, as she puts it.Macey quickly realizes she’s the ball being passed between two desperate yet opposing teams, and that only one of them can score the touchdown. But will the winner be the guy she lived with and loved for three years, or will the winner be the guy who understands her and makes her body come alive?

In this game, someone will be sidelined, and calling the play isn’t always as easy as it seems.

(SIDELINED is a full-length, standalone novel. It’s not necessary to read BLINDSIDED before this book, but it is advised.)

EXCERPT

“Put the drink down, M,” he whispers. “It’s fucking with you.”

“Really? I thought that was you fucking with me,” I respond, turning to him and pressing a hand

against his chest. “What the hell are you doing here?”

Like, right here. Literally.

“It’s my best friend’s birthday.” He smirks. “Why’ve you been staring at me all night like you wanna

suck and bite my cock simultaneously?”

“I assure you it was the latter.”

“Sure it was.” Jack steps into me again, and I grab my glass with the hand closest to him so I don’t

grab his ass or something, ‘cause, shit. He’s got a sweet as hell ass.

“It was.” I drink. Again. Where the hell are my girls? “I feel like dancing.” I finish the glass and twist

my body away from his.

His hand finally falls from me as I stalk toward and down the stairs. I slip into the moving crowd, but

I’ve barely moved my hips when two large, strong hands clasp me and tug me backward. The wall of

muscle my back slams into is solid, and I exhale on a whoosh, even as I close my fingers against the

ones clasping my hips.

“Nice try, baby,” Jack says into my ear. “Run if you want. I’m a running back. I’ll chase you and catch

you every fuckin’ time.”

“Sounds like a promise you can’t keep, doll,” I reply, my breath catching when he moves my hips

against his.

“Sounds like a promise you’re afraid of.”

I laugh and shove his hands away from me. I turn to face him. Even in the darkness, his eyes blaze

bright green, so fucking bright they’re close to blinding me every time the strobe lighting coasts

across his face. And, shit, it does it so many times, and every time, it illuminates every line and curve

of his perfectly sculpted jaw.

“You wish, Jack Carr. You fucking wish.”

His hands snatch mine and he pulls me through the crowd. I fight his hold, but his grip is too tight.

My heart pounds as he drags me through the hall with certainty, and in two minutes, I find myself

pressed against his goddamn car in the parking lot.

“What the fuck?” I shout, shoving at him.

He grabs my hands once more and pins them over my head, effectively bending me backward on the

hood of his SUV. “What the fuck?” he replies, leaning into me, his voice low. “Is that hard or soft,

quick or slow, deep or shallow? ‘Cause baby, I can fuck you all six of those ways in one go.”

“None of them,” I snap. “What the fuck, as in, what the fuck, asshole?”

“Oh, that what the fuck.” He bends forward a little more. Until his mouth is against my ear and his

hard body is pressed right up against mine. “Maybe it’s the what the fuck I felt when I felt your eyes

on me all night. Maybe it’s the what the fuck I felt when you looked at me like you wanted to fuck

me one minute, then the next, slice my balls in two. Maybe it’s the what the fuck you’ve got in your

eyes while you let me lie my body over yours in a motherfucking parking lot seconds after I ask you

how you want to be fucked tonight.”

“I don’t want to be fucked,” I reply, doing my best to slam my hands into his hood. I fail—shit, he’s

so fucking strong I can’t even twist my hands in his grip.

“Baby, your body says otherwise.”

“My body is an impulsive fuckwit.”

“Your body knows me.”

“Again, my body is an impulsive fuckwit.”

“You never did say.” He breathes against my jaw and brushes his lips against my skin. “How do you

want to be fucked?”

He tilts his face into my neck and kisses. Oh, hell, he kisses my neck, right beneath my jaw, where my

chin meets my neck, and I pause. I inhale sharply.

“Get in the goddamn car,” he orders, releasing me.

“Excuse me?” I push up and stare at him.

“Get in the goddamn car,” he repeats, pulling open his door and staring me. “Or have I gotta throw

you into it?”

“I am not getting into your car!”

He slams his door shuts and rounds on me. I step backward, but he’s too quick, and he wraps an arm

around my waist. My body slams into his yet again as he opens the passenger side door of his SUV

and throws me into it.

“Get. In. The. Goddamn. Car.”

“This is kidnap!”

He slams my door, and I both see and hear him laughing as he walks to the driver’s side. “Sure it is,

baby. I’m startin’ the engine now, so you got ten seconds to get the hell out before I drive. One…

two…”

From Emma Hart, the New York Times bestselling author of the
Game series, comes a brand new series where the game is realer, the tension is
tighter, the sex is hotter, and the stakes are the highest of all…
Two people. Two agendas. Two games.
What happens when the out-there It-Boy of football meets the
secret It-Girl of fashion?
As the daughter of Hollywood’s sweetheart, Leah Veronica
can’t even buy a coffee without finding her face on a magazine stand, so it’s no
wonder she’s launching her first fashion line in secret. With it debuting at
New York Fashion Week in just under a month, extra time in the spotlight is the
last thing she needs.
The son of the best quarterback the league has ever seen,
filling legendary shoes as the L.A. Vipers’ quarterback was inevitable for
Corey Jackson. So was meeting Leah Veronica—the first girl to hand him his ass
without putting a hair out of place.
Getting the handsome, prickly blonde into his bed becomes
his number one goal. But getting the sexy, over-confident footballer the hell
away from her becomes Leah’s—at least until she realizes the best way to do
that is to give him what he wants.
If only it was that simple.
When Corey discovers who she is, and private photos of
Hollywood’s finest find their way online, everything they thought they knew is
thrown into disarray.
And when secrets are exposed and hearts are shattered, they
have to figure out if they’ve been blindsided by love or reality, and if it’s
worth running the extra yard to win the game they never meant to play.

By day, New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Adult author Emma Hart dons a cape and calls herself Super Mum to two beautiful little monsters. By night, she drops the cape, pours a glass of whatever she fancies – usually wine – and writes books.

 

Emma is working on Top Secret projects she will share with her followers and fans at every available opportunity. Naturally, all Top Secret projects involve a dashingly hot guy who likes to forget to wear a shirt, a sprinkling (or several) of hold-onto-your-panties hot scenes, and a whole lotta love.
She likes to be busy – unless busy involves doing the dishes, but that seems to be when all the ideas come to life.
