SECRET ADMIRER IS LIVE + $25 GIFT CARD

Her love could set me free from the shadows... 

Seeing CoCo Becket for the first time, made my heart start beating again. It changed everything.

Before her I had no purpose, no reason to live. 

She was the most beautiful woman I had ever met, I couldn't help but fantasize about kissing her plump lips or having those sky blue eyes staring back at mine, seeing beyond what I truly was. Broken and ashamed. 

My desire for her ran deep, deeper than I expected it too. She was a Goddess and I was simply caught up in her glow, I couldn't say no. Not to her kindness, and not to my need to be near her. 

CoCo was the good in life where I was the bad. She became the sun to my never ending darkness. 

When a mysterious situation brings us together,  I discover that I'll do anything to keep her safe. Even if it means risking my own life, to save hers. 

Because before her, love was just a word I'd heard in passing…and now I'll destroy anyone that tries to take her, or that love away from me.


Secret Admirer Exclusive Excerpt #3

“I have no preconceived notions about you. Show me who you are Bodhi, and that’s who I’ll believe you are. Can you do that?” Her hand rubs up and down my arm and, in that moment, I’d do anything for her even give my life if it came down to it.

The lump in my throat prevents me from speaking. All I can do is nod my head as I stare at the amazing women in front of me. 

“Good. Now if you haven’t noticed I don’t live too close to town. Before I lived not far from the salon where I could easily stop and get something to eat on my way home or have it delivered. While I can still grab something on the way home, no one but pizza places deliver. I had pizza every night while I moved in so I’m over it for now. Having a guest though is pushing me to actually use that kitchen.” Her eyes shine with sincerity. “Plus, it’s healthier.”

“I know how to make spaghetti,” I blurt out making her laugh. “I can make dinner if you still want me to stay.”

“Oh, you’re not getting out of staying with me.” She points out the door. “Grab your bag so we can get home before it gets dark because while I was sitting here chilling out, I was daydreaming about ordering takeout from The Cheesecake Factory.”

I can’t help but laugh at her. “I thought you said you wanted to eat healthy and that’s not healthy.”

“What if I promise to eat healthy for the rest of the weekend?” She peers up at me, her big blue eyes filled with hope. 

I play along because she can do whatever she wants. It’s her house and I won’t be there to hold her accountable if she slips up. “How can I deny you when you look at me like that?” 

Somehow, she manages for her eyes to become bigger. Bluer. “Like what?” 

Does she really not know? She has to.

“With cute puppy dog eyes filled with hope,” I answer.

“I wasn’t doing that, was I?” she asks, astounded. 

She really doesn’t know. How has she made it this far in life and not know the power she holds with one single look?

SECRET ADMIRER EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT #1

“I’m sorry, Coco. Really, I am.”

Her grip on my hand tightens before she pulls me into her soft body. Her other hand reaches up and wraps around my neck, pulling me down until our lips collide.

Instantly all is right with the world.

Stars burst behind my eyelids as her soft lips move against mine. When her tongue slips inside and caresses mine, I pull her closer until our bodies are melded together. My fingers tangle in her long hair and tilt her head to the side to give me better access. 

She tastes of something sweet and coffee, and something pure Coco. I sweep my tongue against hers, and they dance together as if we are made for each other.

She tastes divine and I’m going to devour her.

COCO

Panting, Bodhi pulls away keeping his hands wrapped around my waist. “What was that for?”

“You wouldn’t shut up.” And because I’ve been dying to kiss him for days.

“Is that the only reason?” He stares down at me intently. 

“Of course not. If I wasn’t attracted to you, I wouldn’t have kissed you. I would have kicked you in the shin or something.” I run my hand up his firm bicep and cup his now smooth cheek. “I don’t kiss just anyone. Would you like me to do it again?”

His large hands tighten their grip on the sides of my waist pulling me closer. “I’m not good enough for you, Coco, and I never will be.”

“Let me be the judge of that. You see yourself too harshly in this desert sun.”

“The sun hasn’t changed my perspective on myself. I know who I am, and after seeing you for the first time, I want to be a better man. Make my situation better, and I am, but it’s never going to be enough to ever afford to give you this life.” He gestures around the kitchen and outside.
