Sometimes love isn’t enough…
Sometimes you’re required to be beautifully loyal.

If you think you know her… You’re wrong.

If you think you know her family… Wrong again.
If you think you know her story… You don’t.

Ashlynn Adorite is no stranger to the cruel and unusual world she was born into. In fact, she accepts it, understands it, embraces it. However, in her world, falling in love isn’t simply a choice. It causes problems, changes lives, disrupts business.

Sex, pleasure, carnal desires ... those things Ashlynn understands. Love ... not so much. Her world is turned upside down when she starts to feel something for not just one man, but two. The question is, can she have all that she desires, or will loyalty to her family interfere.


What do you do when your entire life you've feared your father? Feared what he was capable of. So when the man was finally dead, you could breathe a sigh of relief. Ashlynn doesn't love. She claims she doesn't know how to. She loves her siblings, but she claims that's different. Ashlynn masks her pain with sex. Sex doesn't involve emotions. Sex is just sex, right? It it just a sexual act where to people have orgasms. Nothing more, nothing less. 
"Do you think you have to love someone to sleep with them?""No," he told her simply. "I don't." Figuring he needed to put a piece of himself out there in order to get one back from her, he decided to tell her how he saw it. "But when it comes to you, it won't just be sex. Not for me."
What happens when Ashlynn has sex with Jase, her security detail? Will things change? When Ashlynn begins to "feel" things for Jase, what will she do? Is Ashlynn capable of a relationship? What will Jase do when he realizes he is in love with Ashlynn?  

Ashlynn trusts Jase with her life. Can she trust Jase with her heart? Things get a little complicated when both Jase and Ashlynn have the same fantasies and want to add another person to their relationship.  Ashlynn has had a crush on Leyton since she was a teenager. But after Max found the two having a moment of desire at a friend's wedding, Leyyon has been warned to stay away from her by Max. Leyton's best friend, the BOSS of the Southern Mafia Boys and Ashlynn's older brother. What will Leyton do when Ashlynn continued to taunt him with the forbidden fruit... her? How strong is Leyton to stay away from Jase and Ashlynn? 

Leyton wants more than a one night stand with Ashlynn and Jase. He wants so much more. What will Leyton do if Ashlynn only wants a one night stand? Will he walk away? Will he risk his friendship, his loyalty to Max for one night? Ashlynn is used to being in control, but control is the one thing that Leyton will not turn over the reigns. If they are going to do this, it will be by his terms.
"Tell me you want this. Tell me you're not gonna push me away if it gets to ne too much for you." "I can't make any promises.""Tell me. That's your only choice. Or this is over before it even gets started." ~ Leyton and Ashlynn
Max is the only family that Leyton has, so he will never betray him. Leyton needs to do things right, he needs to have Max's blessing, his approval to be with Ashlynn. 
Can Leyton keep his promise to Max? Leyton is loyal to Max, but will he allow him to keep him away from Ashlynn? 
"You really are loyal to Max?Once he had his jacket on, he returned to her. "I'm loyal to the people I love. And yes, I'm loyal to your brother - he's my family.""What about me?" He notes a hint of insecurity in her tone."you're more than that to me." Cupping her face in his hands. Leyton presses his mouth to hers. "You're everything. And I'm gonna prove that to you very, very soon."
What do you do when the one man who has always been there to protect you wants more than you are willing to give? Is Ashlynn capable of giving more? When Ashlynn begins to feel... what will she do? Will she push those that love her away, or will she embrace them and love them in return?

This book was amazing like all the rest. Nicole will pull you in and you will feel the emotions that Jase, Leyton and Ashlynn feel. You will want to strangle Ashlynn for her stubbornness a few times, but overall, you will love her as well. Sometimes it takes the heart a little longer to open up to someone.

“Will you be ready?”
Leyton snapped out of it, only to find Ashlynn looking at him. Her eyes reflected amusement, but she wasn’t smiling. Yep, she’d busted him.
“Ready?” he questioned.
“To go to Max’s? We need to get this figured out. I’ve got another meeting to get to this afternoon.”
“With who?” he asked, sipping his coffee and stepping out of the way as she approached.
His eyes slid down to her ass and he wondered whether or not she was wearing panties beneath that sexy dress.
