Little Things (Second Chances #1)
Madison Street
 
 
Everything
in Duke Grayson’s life was all he could ever ask for: A loving family, loyal
friends, a beautiful girlfriend, and a scholarship to his top choice college.
It’s his senior year of high school, and all he needs is to focus on his
grades, lacrosse, and keeping his girlfriend happy. That is until Raya walks
into his life.
From the moment they meet, Duke is drawn to her, not only for her natural
beauty and her stunning crystal blue eyes, but because he’s aware there’s more
to this girl than just his alluring pull to her. He senses secrecy and
fear.
Throughout the year, their bond grows stronger, and his feelings for her become
undeniable. Just when he is about to express his love, tragedy strikes and Raya
disappears.
For six years, Duke is tortured by his struggles, as he’s unable to find her
and blames himself for failing to protect her. Until the day, she’s found, and
he’s given a second chance. Will Duke become her beacon of hope and make her
see that it’s the little things that make life worthwhile? Can Raya overcome
her fears and fight against the terrors that haunt her? Or will her dark and
torturous past be too much for her to battle against?

     Shattered and Shaken (Shaken Series #1)  
Julie Bailes
 
 
If someone asked me to describe myself using only one word, I’d tell them damaged. I’m completely broken, irreparable. On the outside, I appear beautiful and bright, but on the inside, my soul is black and empty. I haven’t always been this fragile, scared, and heartbroken woman. Nope. I had the life my peers envied; happily married parents, captain of the volleyball team, and a dangerously sexy and loving boyfriend. Then, faster than I could blink, my life went to hell in a gasoline-soaked hand basket. 

 

Cancer struck. The sting of death pierced my heart, and my so-called ‘loving’ boyfriend left me. Wyatt shattered my heart into a million pieces when he left, but little did he know, it wasn’t just me he walked away from. Four years later, Blake changes everything. Unlike Wyatt, Blake treasures my heart. Blake claims I’m beautifully broken, and that he can fix me, but I know differently. 

 

How can you put something together without all its pieces? You can’t. When Wyatt left, he took most of my heart away with him. You see, hearts are like broken glass; you can put it back together again, but it will never be the same. While I’m undeserving of Blake’s love, he deserves every bit of mine. My biggest fear is that I’ll crush his heart, just as Wyatt did mine.

My name is Dominic Powers. My software engineering company, DPS, is one of the top 500 companies in the world. Conducting a search for my Personal Assistant brought an unexpected candidate straight to me.

 

I knew she was different as soon as she walked into my high-rise office. She exuded innocence and inexperience. Those are two things in a woman that normally don’t attract me, but I am apparently making an exception for her. She’s young and delicate – and I’m afraid she won’t make it in my world.
But the carnal man I’ve kept hidden deep inside me says I have to try.
She is my Sophia Vasco.

Abandoned by her birth parents and ignored by her adoptive family, Maddy Page believes she is unlovable. She only allows herself to dream of falling in love.

 Excerpts

Excerpt 1

My entire body pulses in the wake of his touch. His words “if you were mine” keep circling around in my head, and with each rotation, something inside me grows. He makes me feel happy and less broken. I feel I could take on the world as long as he’s beside me. Whatever he is, I don’t care. I’ve never felt anything like this, and I’ll go to Hell and back to keep it. Regardless of what happens to me, I have to protect him. I have to keep him safe, always.
He grins and squeezes my hand again. My body responds with such intensity, I almost feel as if I were floating. I don’t want it to ever stop. I want to stay strong. I want to be brave. I want to feel safe. He gives me all of that. I want to hold him forever, even if it’s only his hand.
“Tomorrow,” he says, pulling me from my thoughts. “I’ll find a way to see you.”
“Promise?”

Excerpt 2

All I want now is to be near her—but that could be the very thing that kills her.
“If you care for her, you’ll leave this house and never see her again. If she dies and she’s unknown to Heaven, that’s it. This otherworldly girl will either be sentenced to Hell or
cease to exist. Can you face eternity knowing you brought that fate to her?”
All the air rushes out of my body as the weight of her life once again rests on my soul. I turn back to her, memorizing as much as I can about her—the way her soft arms wrap
around her torso, the color of her eyes that match the emerald gemstone still in my pocket, and soft pink lips I never got to touch.
Goodbye, my Maddy. I stand and find the strength to walk out the door and leave the best thing that has ever happened to me.

Excerpt 3

My heart flutters. I really do like MJ. I blush and pop a few grapes into my mouth. As ecstatic as that makes me feel, I still don’t know, fully, if I can trust him—not until I know what he is. “So … you still haven’t answered my original question. Government experiment, superhero, or something else. Which is it?”
He sighs, shaking his head. “I wasn’t created in a lab somewhere.”
“What about an alien?”
“No.”
“Mutant?”
“No.”
“Warlock?”
“Wouldn’t that fall under the category of magician?”
“Magicians are usually fake. Warlocks and witches could be real. So are you one?”
“No.”
Stumped, I rest my chin on my hand and huff in exasperation.
“Give up?” he asks.
“No. But I’ve made some good progress on my list.”
“You have a list?”
“Uh huh.” I toss a few more grapes into my mouth.
“Of what you think I might be?”
I nod.
“I don’t suppose you could just let it go?”
I narrow my eyes at him. “If I did a bunch of crazy things that you couldn’t explain, would you let it go?”
He smirks and shakes his head. “You win.
