Broken Fences by Kelly Gendron

A TroubleMaker Novel ~ Book 1 


Blurb:

Colden Saint James, Dusty Owens, and a single night of passion had equaled to poor old Mr. McAllister’s broken fence. Add six years, a troublemaking photo, and there’s not a fence in Texas that’s gonna be safe.

It took Dusty Owens two years to land Colden “Saint” James, even if it was for only one night, but the very next day, he was gone. Now, years later, the “Saint” has returned, but he’s no longer the do-gooder rookie cop Dusty remembers.


Dusty Owens always had a way of making every single one of Colden’s man parts go all hard. He’d been so close to falling for the girl before he’d left Odessa. Now, due to a troublemaking photo, Colden must return to his hometown to keep her safe. Trouble is, he’s a different man—not to mention the change. Well, it’s gonna cause all kinds of problems where Dusty Owens and all of his man parts are concerned.

My Review4.5 Star Review – Broken Fences (A TroubleMaker Novel #1)

I recommend this book.

I enjoyed this book by Kelly.  This book includes passion, laughs, heartache, pain, and betrayal.

Dusty Owens had one night with Colden Saint James after trying to get him for two years.  When she gets her chance he takes her virginity, they broke a fence and he left town the next day with no word. 

He has been gone for 6 years but he’s is due back for his brother’s wedding.  Now he is in town and looking better than ever.  But since Dusty was told he is married with three kids she should be safe right?

Colden Saint James is back in town because his cover is blown and he is sure someone is after Dusty all because he had her picture in his wallet.  He must protect her from the trouble he is sure that is coming.  He bets her he can beat her at staying on a mechanical  bull and since she holds the record and he fell off the last time after only a few seconds she agrees.  He beats her and moves into her spare room. 

Dusty finds out that Colton’s brother made up the story about Colden having a wife and kids she realizes that she is not so safe.  He tries to seduce Dusty at every opportunity and is able to.  She can’t resist him.  He is and has always been her weakness. 

When an associate of Colton’s shows up Colton ties up the man and takes Dusty prisoner.  She tries to get away more than once only for Colton to grab her back.  The more time they spend together the more she falls in love with him.  After Colton’s boss talks to the associate they are allowed back into town.  After dropping Dusty off Colton tells her he will be right back.  After waiting for hours she knows he has left town again.

Is he gone for good?  If he returns will Dusty let him back into her life again? What is his real job?  Will he make it to the wedding?  Does he even care about Dusty? How will she survive if he is gone?

Read an Excerpt

“Just admit it. You want me.” A crooked grin tugged on his lip.

Dusty glared at him from the corner of her eye. “Okay.” She gripped the railing and swayed back. “Yes, once I wanted you—once. But like I said, let’s not dwell on the past. I’m so over you, St. James.”

The smug son-of-a-bitch’s smile broadened. He shook his head. “I’m so not convinced, Dusty girl,” he said with sparkling, playful eyes.

“Stop calling me that!”

“What?” He arched a badly behaving eyebrow. “Girl?”

“Yes!”

“Well, you are one, aren’t you?”

“Yes, but—”

“Oh, I get it,” he rudely interrupted. “Too generic? How ‘bout I call you, uh…my pretty girl? Would you like that?”

In false protest, her nose and forehead scrunched. But she could already see it. The minute that little fawning left his sexy mouth, she’d drop to her knees, ready to give the man whatever he wanted.

“No?” He rubbed his chin and released a low, sexy, “Hmm.” A second later, he lifted an a-ha finger. “Tough girl?”

Her entire face flushed with heated anger.

He grimaced. “Don’t like that either?” His eyes hooded. “I know what kind of girl you are.”

She snorted. This oughtta be good. “Yeah? And what kind of girl am I?”

“A bad girl,” he huskily drawled. “You want to be my bad girl, don’t you?”

“No!” Oh God, yes! Who wouldn’t want to be his bad… anything? The new and improved St. James was hot, and her knees were already begging to hit the floor for him. Shake it off, bad girl. Just, shake it the hell off!

“Come over here.” An arm wrapped around her waist. “C’mon.” He dragged out the words as he dragged her up to his side. “It’s all good. You can be my bad girl anytime, Dusty Owens.”

When he bent his head down, warning bells went off in her addled brain. Sissy and Jimmy could see them from where they were standing. She veered back, her hand pressing into his shoulder, “Colden!”

“Don’t be so skittish.” His lips turned up, and his grip tightened. “Where’s that brazen girl? Where’s the girl who showed up at Rusty’s Tavern with Britt Weber, the player of all plays?”

Her eyes widened. Is he really going to bring up that night?

“And after a slow, naughty bull ride performance in a very slinky white dress, I might add, that bad girl dirty danced with the scumbag.”

He even remembers my dress? God.

“Where’s that brazen girl who took a huge risk, hoping I’d come to her rescue and save her from the sleazebag?”

The night flooded into her brain, Colden pulling her out of Britt Weber’s truck. Him punching Britt, who was twelve years her senior, right in the face, and Colden chasing after her and catching up with her at old man McAllister’s fence. Crazy for him, her attempt at making Colden jealous had worked. She’d tried to keep him hot by picking a fight, but Colden hadn’t taken the bait. Without saying a word, he’d just walked up to her and kissed her hard, a kiss he didn’t break until they broke McAllister’s fence—until she’d surrendered her virtue and her heart to him.

“So? Where’s that bad girl now?” he provoked.

Dusty shook her head and told him the truth. “She grew up.” She knew it was immature to try to make Colden jealous back then. He wasn’t a kid. He was a man, and he had shown her that night just what kind of man he was, the kind she wanted to spend the rest of her life with.

“Nah.” Sturdy fingers pressed into her hipbone. “I think she’s still in there. She just needs some coaxing to come out and play.” He leaned in and huskily taunted, “Come out, come out, wherever you are! Be my bad girl and admit you wanna play.”

“In your dreams, St. James. Why don’t you get over yourself? I’ve already told you that I don’t feel anything for you—not anymore,” she lied, trying to save herself.

“I don’t believe you.” His eyes wickedly twinkled with the statement.

“I don’t really care what you believe.”

“Take your panties off.”

As angry as he was making her, her body had to respond to the command, and every muscle froze. “What?”

“If they’re bone dry,” he said, tilting to the left and dropping his voice, “I’ll believe you.”

“Colden, look where we are, for God’s sake. You’re crazy if you think I’m gonna¬—”

He tilted slightly closer, his eyes dark and daring. “Take them off.”

“I-I can’t,” she mumbled, hypnotized by his captivating, intent look and even more stunned by the crazy demand.

“Why?” The corner of his mouth lifted. “Oh, right.” His smile grew bigger. “Don’t worry. I don’t mind getting my hand a little wet.”

What? Absolutely incorrigible! “You’re an ass.”

“Well, if that’s not your excuse, what is?”

“Besides the obvious, it’s a rude a request.” She smirked at him. Yeah, that’s right, buddy. Two can play at this game. “I can’t give them to you because…” She inched closer to his tempting mouth. “I’m not wearing any.” Unable to ignore the pleasure she got from seeing the astonishment light up his eyes, her smile grew too.

“Damn, girl.” He exhaled, letting out a very noticeable whistle. His hand slid slowly down her hip, as if to confirm her claim, then roamed to her backside. “Do you know what a statement like that can do to a guy?”

“Again, I don’t care.”

“Well then, let’s make you care…”

[Cover Reveal] Chasing Angel by J.L. Weil

Chasing Angel by J.L. Weil
Divisa #3
Publication date: 2014
Genres: Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult
Cover designed by Kelly Walker



~Synopsis~

Chase Winters is one of a kind.

That doesn’t mean he still doesn’t get on my nerves more days than not, but his arrogance is starting to be sexy. Together our bond grows stronger, and so do we.

Just as we hurdle one obstacle, two or three more pop up. Go figure. It isn’t enough that Emma once again hates our guts, now Travis has decided to go all demon-zoid on us. I could hardly blame him though; he had lost the girl of his dreams—again.

After everything that we have endured, I am not the same girl anymore. Not since the day I met Chase. The icing on the cake—there is a  new player in town and he is not human. Hell has decided to pay Spring Valley a visit, and Chase and I are their first stop. Our quiet little town was about to shatter.

Of course there is also our rare bond to factor into all of this, and the pesky last piece. Or maybe it isn’t as pesky as it is combustible.

Soul. Heart. Body.

Oh dear God…

 Excerpt

(New Adult romance)

Drew put his hat on and pulled it down just enough to where I could still see his eyes. He finally answered, and it wasn’t what I expected at all. “You’re the first girl I’ve ever seen surfing around here. I mean really surfing, not just messing around. That interested me. That’s why I talked to you those times. Because you were different. Like me. You’re a risk-taker, but something’s holding you back. Something happened to you. That’s why you’re here. That’s why you mostly keep to yourself. That’s why you have those walls up.” I felt my eyes narrowing in anger. I didn’t like this at all. Everything he was saying was true. And it pissed me off. I slid off the seat and stood. “I have to go.” I started walking toward the door and I had just picked up my surfboard when he said, “Leah, wait. I’m sorry.” I turned around. He got up and moved toward me. “It’s raining like crazy, it’s still windy. At least let me drive you home. I looked out the window and saw that it was still quite blustery. Walking home with this surfboard wouldn’t have been much fun. And it was only a short distance, which meant I wouldn’t have to put up with him for long. I pushed the door open and started to walk out. “Okay. But stop psychoanalyzing me.” He held the door open for me. “Done.”

[Cover Reveal & Giveaway] Exit Strategy by L. V. Lewis

Author L.V. Lewis revisits the world of Keisha Beale and Tristan White from her Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever in the soon to be released Exit Strategy!

Ex·it Strat·e·gy (noun) 1. A preplanned means of extricating oneself from a situation that is likely to become difficult or unpleasant. 2. The method by which a venture capitalist or business owner intends to get out of an investment that he or she has made in the past.

 

Will Keisha and Tristan exercise their elaborate EXIT STRATEGY and end their unorthodox arrangement?

Assailed by demons she thought she had conquered, Keisha Beale has uttered the words to end her tumultuous relationship with Tristan White. Separated, they grapple for a time with their personal demons. However, when their lives apart become unbearable, a credible threat brings them back together prematurely.

As they seek to discover who is responsible for the threats, several seemingly unrelated incidents throw them into a tailspin. Will Keisha’s youthful indiscretions or Tristan’s un-reconciled feelings for a former sub derail their tenuous arrangement?

In the meantime, trouble in Nathan and Jada’s paradise send dramatic ripples that hint of future difficulties in the idyllic pairing.

Nothing Ventured…

Tristan uses his vast wealth and connections to correct a gross miscarriage of justice, while Keisha makes herself utterly vulnerable to Tristan and fears he has chosen to exercise his own exit strategy.

…Nothing Gained!

Will this be the end of the indecent arrangement that became a fairy tale? Or will Keisha and Tristan reveal the trauma from their pasts so they may heal and completely embrace their relationship?

Sensual, suspenseful, and still infused with the riotous levity of Triple-G and Fairy Hoochie Mama, the Ghetto Girl Romance Quadrilogy departs from full parody with a distinctive take on love, loyalty, sacrifice, redemption, and acceptance.

 

L. V. Lewis doesn’t have the financial means of Tristan White, but she wouldn’t want readers to go away from this cover reveal empty handed, so she’s giving all viewers the chance to win one of the following three prizes (1) Kindle (2) $50 gift card (from either Amazon, B&N, or iTunes), 3) Signed Personalized copies of Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever and Exit Strategy.

These prizes will be awarded about a week after the release of Exit Strategy!

The giveaway will run from October 22nd – November 15th. During the week of October 29th – November 5th, Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever will be on sale for $.99!

 

DISCLAIMER:  If for some reason the book doesn’t load on all the platforms by the release date, this will be due to circumstances beyond my control. I apologize in advance for any snafus that might occur.

So without further ado, here’s the fabulous new cover of Exit Strategy!
