Nick falls against the door frame, his back pushed to the wood.

He clutches his chest. “Well blow me down. Cindy Crawford is on my bed. I’m one dumb, lucky son of a gun.”

I giggle as I rake my gaze from his shaggy brown, but sun-bleached hair, to his chestnut eyes. His navy-blue work clothes are covered in speckled plaster dust remnants. He’s never been more handsome to me. Even though he has many creases around his eyes and across his forehead these days, and he sports a tiny dad-potbelly that once was a tight six pack, I’d never want to change a single thing about him. My husband is perfect.

He growls from deep in his throat. His straight white teeth are on full display. Then he licks his lower lip.

“You like what you see?” I give him a cheeky wink.

He bares his teeth, gnashing them together. “So, so very much. I want to lick, bite, and devour every single piece of you. You are better than ice-cream and you know how much I love me some ice-cream…”

𝐻𝑒 𝑑𝑜𝑒𝑠. 𝐴𝑛𝑑, 𝐼 𝑑𝑜. My cheeks redden with heat.

“My wife is hot.” He kicks off his boots, unfastens the belt holding up his strides, and stalks to the end of the bed.

“Honey, clothes off outside the room. The dust will go everywhere, and I hate cleaning, you know this.” I shouldn’t care, our house is perma-messy, but plaster dust is hell to clean off fabric.

“Sorry, babe.” He turns in a flash, rushes out of the bedroom, and drops his draws in the hallway. He unbuttons his work shirt, revealing the hairy chest he tells our boys he got from eating all his greens as a young whippet, before stripping the material completely away. He stops. Our eyes connect.

“Jocks off out here too?”

I nod.

He removes them in one swift motion.

“Am I right to come in now?”

‘The Beast’ draws my attention. I wiggle my eyebrows in response.

“Geez you’re a horn dog.”

I smile. “Uh-huh.”

Nick doesn’t walk or saunter into the room. Instead, he does a jig, like a poorly postured version of a cha-cha, slide. I giggle.

“Are you laughing at me?”

I sit upright and point to my chest. “Me? Laughing at you? Never!”

He rushes in my direction, lunges onto the bed, and pushes me flat on my back—him hunched over the top. His pearly whites blind me. Oh, how his smile could light up the stormiest of days. Our eyes find each other.

“Hello, you,” he says.

“Hello, you.”

3 friends. 2 players. 1 bet.

When Luca Larson makes an expensive wager, guaranteeing the bedding of his only real female friend, he’s expecting the situation to go as smoothly as sleeping with any other woman would.

It doesn’t take long before he realizes his usual plays won’t work. She knows them too well. She knows HIM too well. If Luca wants to win, he’ll have to do things he’s never done before. Friendships will be challenged. Hearts will be broken. Lives will be inevitably changed. But one question will remain. Was it all worth the gamble?

Publisher: Limitless Publishing

 

My campaign manager says no one wants a bachelor in the White House and this election is drawing near. The solution? To hold a cattle call, and what’s up for auction? Me.

 

Lucky for me I cross paths with Mandy Buchanan—a feisty blonde who isn’t afraid to call me a jerk to my face. But she’s in quite the predicament herself. Mandy needs money since her dad refuses to pay for a frivolous degree. So, we strike a bargain.
I get a wife, and she gets her degree.
The deal was simple. No complications. No problems.
While Mandy pretends to be the perfect First Lady, I start noticing her in a way that has nothing to do with politics or practicality. Those curves. Her eyes. The way her face lights up when she talks about her work. She’s beautiful.
Suddenly she’s no longer just a pawn to help me get into the White House. She’s more than that, and I no longer want to play pretend. I want her to be mine in every way.
Now I just need to convince her that our sham marriage might just be the real deal.

Blurb:
There’s always that one girl who has all these dreams, yet she can’t reach them because she’s constantly tripping over her own two feet.
That’s me. I’m that girl. The unorganized, chaotic, hot mess.
I’m the struggling artist who refuses to give up my love for pizza just because society constantly shoves thin, perfectly toned bodies in my face saying that’s what women are supposed to look like.
Oh, and I’m filthy rich. On paper anyway. I can’t touch my trust fund just yet, so to get those nasty debt-collectors off my back I rent out the snazzy mansion my parents left me.
Of course it has to be Tate Montgomery who moves in—the super sexy celebrity with three million, five hundred and twenty-six followers on Instagram. And of course I have to be the paint-covered walking disaster who falls for said famous tenant.
The problem? Tate and I, we’re not compatible…at all. He’s arrogant. I’m stubborn. It’s a train wreck waiting to happen.

Title: Fictional-ish
Author: Natalina Reis
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Contemporary
Release Date: May 11, 2019
A stand-alone romantic comedy set against the background of Scottish small towns and locks that will make you laugh, cry, and definitely melt your heart. 
 
Livie Dunn, bookworm and aspiring bookstore owner, has been in love with her best friend ever since he dropped a bug down her shirt in primary school. She never stopped hoping that one day he’d realize they were made for each other. 
 
Until Mia got in the way. 
 
Kyle Huang has been taught to always do the right thing. But when that involves ostracizing his best friend by marrying her childhood nemesis, Mia, life as he knows it derails and crashes. Suddenly, their happy ever after seems like a broken dream, especially when Livie moves across two continents to open a bookstore in Scotland. 
 
To salvage a love that seems all but lost, Kyle must come to terms with his own bad choices and hope that Livie is willing to forgive and help him face his demons—a task that is anything but simple. Will he be able to reignite her love or will he lose it all?
 
An uncomfortable silence fell between us. It was strange to be with the one man I was the most familiar with in the whole wide world and yet feel so shy. I knew where all his scars were and the stories that went with them, where his secret tattoo was—upper thigh, almost at the bend of the leg—and why he kept it a secret—a tribute to his twin sister who died shortly after birth. I was there when he broke down in tears the day his parents got a divorce, and he held me while I cried over my first broken heart. His scent was as familiar to me as the air I breathed, and yet I felt awkward and uneasy sitting in that small living room across from him.

Our souls had been connected since we were children, and there was no one in the world I’d feel more at ease with. Kyle was home to me.

“I love the name of the bookstore, Liv, but I don’t want it to be our tag line.” I stopped and turned to him, not sure what he was getting at. “I don’t want our friendship to turn into something fictional, something that never happened, do you?”

I was over the moon thinking of a long drive alone with Livie as my captive audience.

“They still make those?” I chuckled as he unfolded and studied the paper map with the intensity of an old scholar pouring over a treasure map. “What are you looking for?”

“Are you just going to sit there and stare?” Kyle’s mouth had gone slack and he looked paralyzed, sitting with his back to the wall. “If you don’t get naked with me, there’s not much point in this, is there?”

Kyle and I slept in each other’s arms, hanging on to each other with all we had, the blanket swaddling us like a cocoon. 

How do you tell the love of your life that your ex-wife has your life in her hands? That she’s holding it with an iron fist and won’t let go?

“I want you to feel good, Kyle. To know you deserve better than Mia. To know that I love you, no matter what.”

Oh my God. I so didn’t deserve this angel.

“Don’t. Stay a little longer.” Be mine for a few more minutes.

I sighed, the weight on my chest releasing as I exhaled, in awe of my good fortune—how many guys could boast to have an angel as their lover? 

“I’m admiring you, idiot.” 

He rose on his forearms. “Why admire the painting from afar, when you can have it for yourself?” 

“It’s not fiction, Liv. We’re real. What we have is real.”

My body relaxed, the hot water washing away the kinks in my muscles. No water would ever be able to wash away the weight of my frustration and regret.

“I choose you, Livie.” His voice was so soft I was not sure I’d understood correctly. 

In a swift move, I grabbed him by the waist and pushed him down on the bed, rolling over him. “You know what they say; if you want it done right you must do it yourself.” 

Livie could bring out the sun on the rainiest day.
