Shortstop A.M. Madden

July 13, 2015


“Quint and Annie sitting in a tree…K.I.S.S.I.N.G.”
Quint Lawson and Annie Weber heard that childhood song over and over and it never bothered them. Even though Quint was only five, Annie wasn’t just his neighbor. She would become his best friend and the love of his life. Annie wasn’t interested in dolls, or girly things when growing up. A tomboy at heart, having a boy as a best friend suited her just fine. That same boy captured her heart.
Quint had two passions, his girl and baseball. From kindergarten to college, Quint tore up every baseball diamond he played on. His position was shortstop. His talent was undeniable. Professional ball was most definitely in his future, and he was ready for it. Annie would be right by his side.
When everything in life is perfect, it’s hard to imagine heartbreak in any form. Quint wasn’t immune to its power. This shortstop had no idea what any form of heartbreak could do to his perfect world. When it hit, there were many casualties left in its wake…the most important one was Annie.
Can a person be prepared for, understand, or even endure a misfortune if they’ve never experienced one before? In Quint Lawson’s case the answer is no.

Unbreak Me: Now Free for the first time ever!

Read about Lexi Ryan's latest release, UNBREAK ME!
View this email in your browser

UNBREAK ME: Now FREE for the first time ever!

Two years ago, with shaking hands and knots in my stomach, I sent a book out into the world that I called Unbreak Me. It wasn't an easy book to write, but it was one I had to write. Unbreak Me was a story that had hooked its claws into my heart years prior and wouldn't let go until I got it right. The first book I ever set in New Hope, it began a whole new world for my stories.

I'm grateful that Maggie wouldn't leave me alone and insisted I tell her story, and I'm even more grateful that readers connected with her and wanted to read more about the characters in New Hope.

That's why I'm so excited that for a limited time, you can read Unbreak Me--a stand-alone, full-length novel-- for free from the following retailers:

Amazon US - Amazon UK - 
Barnes & Noble - Kobo - 
iBooks - Google Play

“If you’re broken, I’ll fix you…”

I’m only twenty-one and already damaged goods. A slut. A failure. A disappointment to my picture-perfect family as long as I can remember. I called off my wedding to William Bailey, the only man who thought I was worth fixing. A year later and he’s marrying my sister. Unless I ask him not to…
“If you shatter, I’ll find you…”
But now there’s Asher Logan, a broken man who sees the fractures in my façade and doesn’t want to fix me at all. Asher wants me to stop hiding, to stop pretending. Asher wants to break down my walls. But that means letting him see my ugly secrets and forgiving him for his. 
With my past weighing down on me, do I want the man who holds me together or the man who gives me permission to break? 

Amazon US - Amazon UK - Barnes & Noble - Kobo - iBooks - Google Play

From Unbreak Me...

I’m intimidating? You’re the freaking rock star at the table.”

Some of the humor drains from Asher’s face, but he keeps his smile in place. “You know about that, huh?”

“My sisters told me. You could have mentioned you’re in a band.”

“I was in a band.” He wipes his hands on his napkin and shrugs. “Past tense.”

With a dreamy sigh, I prop my chin on my fists. “Who knew that one day I’d be on a date with the lead singer from a famous boy band?”

He scowls. “Infinite Gray was not a boy band.

“Were there any girls in the band?”


“That makes you a boy band.”

“It made us an all-male rock group.”

I bite back my smile. He’s so cute when he’s irritated. “Right, like ’N Sync.”

He winces. “Not like ’N Sync. Jesus, watch where you hurl those things. Words hurt, Maggie.”

I giggle.

He glowers. “You need a musical intervention.”

I perk up. “Ooh! Are you going to make me a playlist?”


I laugh again, but this time a little snort pops out, making me laugh harder.

He narrows his eyes. “You’re playing me, aren’t you?”

“Sorry. I couldn’t resist.”

“So you don’t need that playlist?”

“Says who? No boy has ever made a playlist especially for me before. Please?”

“Not even in high school?”

That takes some of the wind out of my sails. “I wasn’t that kind of girl.”

He studies me for a minute and just when I think he’s going to dig, he drops it. “Okay. It’s your turn. Ask me anything.”

I study him for a moment. The ice-blue eyes that keep dropping to my mouth. The stubble I can still feel against my neck. When I finally speak, it’s to ask, “What do you have against a perfectly good shower?”

He releases a burst of laughter. “If I’d let you have your way with me, you wouldn’t be sitting here with me tonight.”

“Oh, you think I would have moved on to another rock star in my long line of rock stars?”

Unbelonging, A New Adult Romance Novel
by Sabrina Stark
New Adult Romance

Sometimes, the Place You Belong Isn't Where You Began...With an accounting degree that's getting her nowhere, Chloe Malinski spends her nights waitressing and her days housesitting in a neighborhood that's infinitely beyond her reach or comfort zone. But she knows all too well that no one wants a pauper in their mansion, so she's gotten good - maybe a little too good - at faking it 'til she makes it.
With more baggage than any airline, Lawton Rastor made his money through prizefighting - and not the kind with padded gloves and some bowtie-wearing referee. He made it through the gritty, back alley kind where sweaty money changed hands over beer and bimbos. 

She's a poor girl from Hamtramck. He's a billionaire bad boy from Detroit. They should've never crossed paths. But when they do, thanks to Chloe's latest housesitting gig, the collision of sparks, secrets, and misunderstandings leaves both of them yearning to belong exactly where they shouldn't - with each other

by Cara McKenna

Erin Coffey has been a nurse for years, but nothing’s prepared her for the physical and emotional demands of her new position. Needing to move closer to her dysfunctional family, she takes a dangerous job at Larkhaven Psychiatric Hospital, where she quickly learns that she needs protection—and she meets the strong, over-confident coworker who’s more than willing to provide it. 

Kelly Robak is the type of guy that Erin has sworn she’d never get involved with. She’s seen firsthand, via her mess of a sister, what chaos guys like him can bring into a woman’s life. But she finds herself drawn to him anyway, even when he shows up at her door, not eager to take no for an answer. 

What Erin finds even more shocking than Kelly’s indecent proposal is how much she enjoys submitting to his every command. But he can’t play the tough guy indefinitely. If they want to have more than just an affair, both will have to open up and reveal what they truly need.

Dangerous Temptations
by Brooke Cumberland

One night was all it took… 
One night to ruin everything I thought I knew. 

From the outside, I had the perfect lifestyle. 
Wealthy fiancé, blossoming career, amazing friends. 

I wasn’t looking to get married yet, but when William—“Manhattan’s royalty”—charmed his way into my life, I couldn’t deny the security and comfort that overcame me. 

To society, I was the girl only after his money. I was the party-goer who managed to seduce a man twice my age to have the lifestyle some could only dream of. I was every magazine’s cliché of what a gold-digging whore was. 

I wanted to prove them wrong—that our love was real and that I wasn’t that girl. 

But then everything changed. 
One wrong decision. One unfaithful night. One haunting reality. 
Perhaps they were right. 

The media didn’t see it coming…and neither did I.

When Rocky met Dex, it was hate at first sight. Country superstar Dex Dexter represented everything that budding rock star Rocky McCoy had left behind him in the Deep South – the religion, the homophobia, the hypocrisy, the lies. And Rocky represented everything that Dex had denied, had turned away from, had refused… 

When Rocky met Dex, it was love at first touch. Double booked in the same slot on the main stage at CrossFest, they fought for the microphone like two dogs fighting over a bone. And when their hands met… 

Rocky has had enough. “No more falling for straight guys. No way. No matter how hot. Especially if the ‘straight guy’ looks to me like a major closet case.” 

Dex has had enough. “No way. I can’t be gay. I can’t lose my family, my friends, my career. I can’t.” 

What they’ve had enough of doesn’t matter. It’s what they’ve never had enough of that will bring them together…
