Title: Our Little Secret 

Series: The Spencer Brooks Diaries Book 1
Author: S.L. Sterling
Genre: Age Gap, Instalove
Release Date: June 20, 2022
Cover Design: Thunderstruck Cover Design

Spencer Brooks was the most attractive man I’d ever laid eyes on.
He was not only our neighbor and the father to the little girl I babysat for, but he was also my father’s best friend.
All of those reasons combined should have said he was totally off-limits, but my desire for him was too strong.
After all, What could one night really hurt?

I stared out of my bedroom window down into my next-door neighbor’s backyard and watched as he walked behind his mower, cutting his lawn. I looked forward to every Saturday morning, because that was the day that Spencer would appear shirtless and do all his yard work. Spencer and his little girl, Nikki, had moved in almost a year ago now, and from the time I’d laid eyes on him, I’d wanted him. Problem was, he was a good twenty years older, divorced, and a father, and I had only turned twenty a few months ago. Not that any of that mattered, except for the fact that he was also my father’s best friend.

“Still staring at your god?” Carly questioned.

“How did you guess?”

“Well, you were actually in mid-sentence, and you just stopped talking.” Carly giggled. “That was the only logical reason I could come up with. Unless, of course, you were having a stroke.”

I rolled my eyes. “I’m sorry, but how is it even possible that he can look just as sexy in grubby sweats, covered in sweat, as he does every weekday morning when he leaves for the office dressed to the nines in a suit and tie?” I questioned. “I mean, it doesn’t help that the man is beautiful. Thick, dark hair I’d love to run my fingers through, blue eyes anyone with half a pulse could get lost in, 6’2″ and a solid wall of pure muscle that I’d love to lay under. God, how I’d love to lay under him.” I grew quiet envisioning that image. “But in all seriousness, he looks dynamite dressed in a suit, and he looks just as amazing now.”

“God, I know what the man looks like, Ainsley. His picture is plastered on every bus stop and major billboard all over the damn city.” She sighed with irritation. The topic of Spencer Brooks had dominated every conversation we’d had for the past year.

“I think he makes the city look better. You can’t honestly tell me that you don’t agree?”

The phone was silent for a moment, and then I heard a huge sigh. “Is Spencer Brooks all we are going to talk about today?”

“I’m sorry…it’s just…”

“It’s just you’re obsessed with an older man,” Carly bit out. “One who just happens to be the same age as your father, which is just gross. He’s also, in case you’ve forgotten, your soon-to-be boss! Did you forget about that? It’s seriously quite a predicament you’ve gotten yourself into.”

Koe Baines thought he finally had it all. A clan. A mate. A true Alpha. He broke down his walls long enough to let her in, not realizing the crack in his armor would allow in a past of pain that he long forgot existed. He’s being forced out of the ranch, and Pearly is pushing herself further away. So, when his biological clan seems to need him, he follows his true calling, leaving behind everything, and everyone he’s ever known. No clan. No mate. No true Alpha.

 Will Koe risk everything for the broken bloodline that abandoned him when he was just a cub? Will Pearly choose her Alpha, Koe, or the bonded bloodline who chose to raise her as their own? Will the Baines clan survive, or will a new bloodline rise from its ashes?

Camden
I’ve been in love with my best friend since high school.
My biggest regret? Walking away without telling her.
I planned to. But then catastrophe struck, making us part ways without a word.
She left for Boston with her fiancé, while I left for L.A. with my band–Raging Chaos.
For the next five years, I lived and breathed music, trying to forget the beautiful girl who shattered my heart without even knowing it.
Until I see her again…
I walked away once, and I’ve learned my lesson.
Layla is my forever, not another item in my pile of regrets.
And she’s about to find that out.

Layla
The moment I saw Camden on stage, something inside me came to life
His tragic song of unrequited love was a confession that had me questioning everything.
Five years might’ve changed who we are—he’s a rock star and I’m a single mom—but my feelings for him are as strong as ever.
His lyrics make falling in love seem easy. For him—maybe it is.
Only I’ve learned the hard way that real life isn’t as simple as writing a love song.

Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: June 28, 2022
Cover Design: Karen Renee
Photographer: Golden Czermak @FuriousFotog
Cover Model: Brandon Schlaegel
Gamble clings to two things: the Riot MC brotherhood and a grudge against his sister’s attacker. When his grudge brings danger to an innocent woman, it sends him into a tailspin. Dumping a woman at the clubhouse —as a message for Gamble— enrages the Riot MC brothers, but Gamble risks his life in order to mete out vengeance.
Victoria’s recovery is slow and arduous. He’s determined to help her heal and move on.
After tragedy strikes, the last place Victoria expects to be is in Gamble’s room. She doesn’t want him to see her broken. She definitely doesn’t want his help to recover. He won’t have the patience for a woman whose spirit is shattered. Proving her wrong, Gamble refuses to leave her alone. The more he builds her trust, the more she battles her growing desire for him.
As a public defender, Victoria knows she should stay far away from the outlaw biker. But, the blue-eyed outlaw with a sexy Southern drawl argues with her like he’s opposing counsel. They cannot fight their overwhelming attraction. Their relationship grows and changes until they realize they need the same things.
Justice.
And each other.

I wanted this tie-dyed fleece blanket with every fiber of my being. It was warm, soft, and worn. The colors would clash with my lavender and grey bedclothes. No matter how I tried, I couldn’t convince myself not to steal this blanket. And it didn’t make sense. Okay, that wasn’t true. It did make sense because the damn thing smelled so much like Gamble. Something about him watching over me struck me deep. The blanket was a reminder of him and it made me feel better. More secure. 

Good grief, had I regressed to childhood? Did I really need a blankie to feel secure?

I needed to leave. Fiona was willing to take me back to my apartment. I didn’t want to hold her up.

The door opened. Fiona and the red-haired woman who’d helped last night came into the room.

“I’m not rushing you, Victoria. I just want to be sure you’re okay.”

My eyes went to the side. How many times were people going to ask me if I was okay? And I understood that need. That drive to help.

But I didn’t think I would ever be okay again.

“Is his shirt too big? You could—”

“I want his blanket,” I whispered.

Fiona’s blue eyes almost lit up at my words, but she hid it.

“You take it,” the other woman said.

Fiona glared at her. “Abby, I don’t—”

“He won’t care,” Abby said to her.

“I don’t have my pants,” I said.

“They’re evidence now in case you decide to press charges. Stephanie offered some yoga pants, I’ll go get ‘em,” Abby said.

For some reason, Fiona followed Abby. As they left Gamble came into the room.

Since I was never good at being a sneak, I admitted, “I’m taking your blanket.”

His eyes landed on me, and they looked pained. “Have at it, kitten. Anything I can give you, it’s yours.”

I closed my eyes and turned my head away. 

Pity. He would give me the blanket because he pitied me.

Guess I’d have to get used to that too in the days ahead.

Abby came back in with yoga pants and Gamble cleared out.

I put on the stretchy pants. Then I folded the blanket and left it on his bed. 

I didn’t want it anymore. No matter how much it smelled like him.
