~Synopsis~
 
Blake Thomas knows exactly why women want to sleep with him. He’s a sexy, twenty-six-year-old bartender with nothing to lose and confidence to spare.

Then Blake meets twenty-two-year-old Lia Smart, the owner of the restaurant where he’s just been hired. Lia is different from Blake’s usual conquests. She’s beautiful, shy, and guarded, with just a hint of loneliness in her eyes. The only problem is, Lia refuses to see Blake as anything more than just a flirtatious bartender.

But everything changes when Lia’s sexy and assertive older sister, Alex, comes back into town. Alex and Lia have always had a complicated relationship, made even more complicated by the fact that they are clearly in love with the same man. Before long, Blake finds himself the pawn in a high stakes game of forbidden love and dangerous emotions, caught between two sisters who could both easily break his heart.

*Contains adult language and situations*
CAUGHT UP IN YOU is a companion novella to be enjoyed before or after reading OUT FROM UNDER YOU, or as a stand-alone story.

Excerpt:

“So,” she said, breaking me out of my reverie. “What is your deal?”

I laughed. “My deal?”

She nodded. “Your deal.”

I couldn’t be sure but I swore I heard her voice slur slightly on the last word. My hopes instantly rose. Tipsy Lia would be a lot more willing to take clothes off than sober Lia. That I could be sure of.

“I don’t have a deal,” I insisted.

She squinted. “Oh, you so have a deal. All guys like you have a deal.”

“How many times are we going to say the word deal? Should we turn it into a drinking game? Make things interesting?” I flagged down the waitress and ordered a Jack and Coke. Lia asked for the same.

“Do you always drink Jack and Coke?” I asked.

She shrugged. “Maybe.”

I laughed. “Are you trying to be mysterious?”

Her eyes twinkled. “Maybe.”

She stayed silent and we stared each other down like two kids having a contest.

“I’m waiting,” she finally prompted.

“For me to kiss you?” I asked presumptuously, making her giggle. “Because that’s a little difficult with you all the way on the other side of the table. But I’ll give it a shot if you want.”

I cleared away the empty shot glasses between us, like I was going to sprawl myself right across this table.

“For you to tell me your deal,” she corrected.

I pounded the table with my fist. “Damn. We don’t have our drinks yet. That’s one extra sip for you.”

When she didn’t respond, I added, “Why don’t you tell me what you think my deal is.”

“Oh, I already know.”

I feigned surprise. “You do?”

She nodded. “I do.”

The waitress delivered our drinks and I took a sip of mine, prompting Lia to take an obligatory swallow of her own. She did.

I sat back. “Okay, let’s hear it.”

“You’re a bartender,” she began.

I pursed my lips in mock appreciation. “Oooh, perceptive. I like that in a woman.”
            She ignored my jab and continued. “You do it because you like the attention.”

“What attention?” I asked. “You ignore me all night.”

“From other women. I see the way they look at you. You could have any girl in this room.”

I leaned forward, holding her gaze. “But I’m here with you.”

Smart Girls Finish First Book 1
“Love is an earthquake. It comes when you least expect it. It rips the ground clear away. Right out from under you.” The day Lia Smart met Grayson Walker, eight years ago, was the day she fell helplessly in love with him. Coincidentally, it was the same day Grayson fell in love with someone else: Lia’s smarter, sexier, superior-in-every-way older sister, Alex.

Now, nearly a decade later, Alex and Grayson are long over and twenty-two-year-old Lia has finally managed to forget all those lonely nights she spent pining after her sister’s boyfriend. But when Grayson unexpectedly arrives back in town with Alex for Labor Day weekend and the two announce that they’re not only back together but engaged, all the feelings that Lia buried suddenly come bubbling back to the surface.

But Lia is no longer the awkward, gangly tomboy she was at fourteen. Far from it. And Grayson is conflicted by the lustful thoughts he’s now having for her. He knows he could never act on those thoughts, however. Grayson has always prided himself on being one of the “good guys.” But as the weekend wears on, he’s finding this new grown-up version of Lia more and more impossible to resist…

Heartbreaking and sexy with a dash of humor, Sophie Swift crafts a passionate, unforgettable tale about desire, growing up, and the kind of love that shakes us to the core.

*Contains adult situations and explicit content. Recommended for ages 17+.
