Kingston and Phoenix have given up…
Kingston “King” James is THE male supermodel. He’s at the top of his career, the most sought after in his business. Money and fame come easy, women even easier, and yet he has grown bored of his life. His playboy ways have deteriorated his respect for the opposite sex—not to mention question their sanity. Until he meets her—the stunning, strong, smart-mouthed, and witty Phoenix.She’s everything he thought never existed…
Women are relentless in their pursuit at keeping me around for more than one night. The majority of them are predictable, insane, self-deprecating hustlers. A casual encounter with me will earn you nothing more than a satisfied smile and a taxi home. They know what they’re getting into—I don’t make any assurances at the possibility of anything more. I may be a lot of things, but I don’t make promises I don’t keep. They don’t want me. The illusion of me is what they truly desire. The supermodel. The infamous playboy.The pretty face. Their fifteen minutes of fame. But what about her? Is she like everyone else?
Everyone wants. What about what I want?
Phoenix Ryan has endured more pain than she will ever admit. Every day is a reminder of that heartache, of all the agony that poisons her soul. She will go to any length to appear strong, including convincing herself that she’s actually living—until she encounters him. Kingston plows into her life cracking her façade into fragments that she cannot possibly glue back together again. No matter how hard she struggles to remain indifferent to him she can’t stop how her body burns for him. He’s everything she can’t stand—arrogant, egotistical, and presumptuous.
His mouthwatering scent of primal male invades my senses. He’s seduction, sex, speed, adrenaline, and chocolate—just pure deliciousness. The velvety smooth baritone of his voice captivates my entire body. It’s at this moment that the realization dawns on me—he’s going to wreck me. What will be left of me when he inevitably goes?
As their lives relentlessly cross will they give in? Will they Relinquish?
SE Dean lives in the Midwest with her husband, two small children, and their bed-hogging dog Harley. She works as a nurse and is currently striving towards furthering her education. Her love of romance novels lead her to writing, and she has plans for many more books in the future.
If SE is not working, studying, or being the super-hero mom (a title given to her by her oldest child, such a sweetie isn’t he?), you can often find her gulping down her beloved Starbucks, glued to her kindle reading a saucy book, offering free sarcastic comments, cheering on her favored basketball team, or watching movies.
