“You want a taste of what I can give you? Well, you know what, princess?” he sneered. “Get in the fucking line.”

Words that describe Caleb Montgomery: sinfully erotic, unbearably cold, beautifully devastating. Once upon a time, Maddie Ashby thought that he was the man of her dreams. But the boy with obsidian eyes that she’d once adored is long gone, replaced by a man whose broken past has molded and shaped him into someone unrecognizably cruel and hardened.

One mistake brings them together. Another will change both of their lives forever.

Note: Intended for mature audiences over 18+. This is a STANDALONE novel and can be read on its own even though it’s part of a series. No cliffhanger!

Caleb’s eyes followed the pink flash of her tongue.  A shot of adrenaline pumped through her body when she saw him swallow, hard.  His voice was huskier when he asked, “You want to be kissed, princess?”

Maddie sharply inhaled.  She didn’t even need to answer.  Caleb saw her enthusiasm, the way her eyes widened ever so slightly, how her cheeks flushed pink, how she leaned forward.

He gave her a dark, knowing smirk that made her breath quicken.  Stepping even closer, although their bodies still didn’t touch, he murmured, “Do you want to know something, Maddie?  I haven’t kissed a woman in almost eight years.”  Her brows drew, struggling to process his words.  “But I have fucked a lot of women in eight years.  What does that tell you?”

Maddie ignored the searing flash of jealousy and the bitter burn of humiliation that swept through her.  How many women had experienced the man she’d once wanted all to herself?

Her tongue felt glued to the roof of her mouth.  “I know what you’re trying to do,” she whispered.

“And what’s that?”

“Scare me away,” she answered truthfully, the words tumbling from her lips.  “But do you want to know what I think?  I think you’re scared of me.”

“And why would I be afraid of you?” he asked, his defenses rising.  A tangible wall.  His eyes swept over her.  His desire was gone, replaced with something that made her want to shrink away, something like disdain.  The high that she felt taking charge had disappeared and she was left shaking as she came down.  “You’re just some irresponsible, spoiled, desperate little girl, wanting a taste of what I can give you.  Well, you know what, princess?  Get in the fucking line.”

Beyond Broken
Emilia Winters

Maddie Ashby has been in love with Caleb Montgomery since she was in high school. He was the only person who helped her get through her father’s death.

 

Maddie hasn’t seem him seen he graduated. She has always wondered what happened to him. There were rumors but no one really knew.

 

When her car brakes down on the side of the road, she ends up at a garage owned by none other than Caleb. Maddie can’t believe her eyes. Caleb is still gorgeous but he is very cold and mean.

 

Caleb knew letting Maddie work off her bill was a big mistake. He doesn’t trust women anymore but the beautiful woman has somehow gotten under his skin.

 

There connection is strong and immediate. They try as hard as they can to resist each other but it was inevitable.

 

Maddie needs all of Caleb but Caleb can’t break free from his past.

 

This was a great love story. Caleb was hot and sexy. Maddie was sweet and caring. I loved how they bantered back and forth and I loved how hard Maddie fought for Caleb.
I recommend this book and I will definitely be reading the first two books in this series as well!
