I was Kira’s from the first moment I saw her. Maybe it was love at first sight, but I was only ten.
She became my best friend.
The girl I can’t live without.
But I have to.
She was almost mine, but my father took away my chance.
Now she lives across the hall from me. Instead of possessing the title of girlfriend, she’s now my stepsister.
But that doesn’t stop how I feel, how I want her. Thankfully, I’m off to college two hundred miles away, but even that doesn’t help.
She’s under my skin, all around me, and all I can do is watch her morph from a sexy teenager to an irresistible woman.
I can’t take it anymore, I need her.

From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes an angsty and emotional enemies-to-lovers gay romance standalone!
The hatred began when my father proposed to another man in a shocking moment that rocked my family to its core...
Now I’m on a quest for revenge against my father.
That means hitting him where it hurts—the new fiancé and the son he thinks so much of.
Alis is a bleached blond perfectionist thorn in my side who’s used to everything going his way. Grades, money, track—he dominates it all despite his short, insignificant frame.
Was one dad not good enough that Alis had to take mine too?
Soon, we’ll be stepbrothers.
Until then, I vow to make his life a living hell.
Maybe Dad will regret his terrible mistakes.
Maybe he won’t.
I know I won’t regret wrecking their lives like they did mine.
I’ll give up everything, even my girlfriend and football, if it means I get a chance for retribution.
It’s reckless and risky, but I don’t have much to lose.
The havoc I wreak might ease some of the pain Dad caused my mother.
I’m willing to give it a shot.
What starts as a family feud will become a war… one I plan on winning no matter the cost.
There’s only one small problem.
I may have underestimated my opponent.
The Privileged of Pembroke High by Ivy Fox
( series , dark , RH , second chance , complete now )
I had their love once.
They saw me for the girl I am and the person I yearn to become one day—a woman who thrives in her freedom and dances away in her rightfully earned independence.
They saw all the strong, unafraid parts of me, and coaxed each one of them out, daring me to dream bigger, climb higher.
They never once saw the girl I had been groomed to see in the mirror.
The abandoned daughter of a dead man.
The unwanted child of a woman who despised her.
The broken body formed wrong and built on a shaky foundation, threatening to fall apart and shatter.
They made all the ugliness disappear and left only wonder and promise. The love we shared for each other was probably the only miracle I would be granted in this life, and I knew they felt the same.
Or so I thought.
Everything I held dear has been robbed from me, and I’ve been a victim of theft too many times to mention.
I will not have them steal my pride.
They can keep my heart, for all I care.
The day they became my stepbrothers, it stopped working anyway.
Heartless is the first book in The Privileged of Pembroke High trilogy which ends in a cliffhanger.
This is a bully/enemy-to-lovers, #whychoose, new adult contemporary romance, full-length novel.
*Recommended 18+ due to mature language, adult situations, and sensitive content.

( trilogy , RH , very dark , triggers , payback , psycho heroes , Dark Bully , humiliation )
I never claimed to be a good girl, but I definitely never asked for this.
Killian, Tristian, and Rath.
These three men are a part of my past--one that I'd rather never look in the eye again. In high school, they knew my secrets and I knew theirs. They had power and I had nothing. The night everything fell apart, my stepbrother allowed his two best friends to take their rage out on me while he watched. While they laughed.
But what happened that night wasn’t my biggest secret. So I ran, planning on never coming back.
Three years later I’m standing on their doorstep like a stray. They’re more powerful than ever now, having risen to the rank of Lords at Forsyth University. But I’m still on the run and there's another monster chasing me down.
What could bring me back into their lives, their homes, and ultimately, their beds?
Killian, Rath, and Tristian aren’t the only ones who want me. There’s someone far more dangerous out there who's been stalking me since I left town the first time. Someone who makes the evil I know feel less dangerous than the evil I don’t.
But being their Lady is more than just fancy clothes and reputation.
I might be under their protection, but I’m also at their mercy.
And there's nothing a Lord loves more than taking control.

Stepbrother Untouchable by Colleen Masters
( standalone , second chance , cocky hero ,contemporary and dark mix , HEA)
Calling Nate Thornhill a rich, cocky, arrogant asshole would be an understatement.
He also happens to be stunningly handsome, popular, intelligent, and captain of both the Crew and Lacrosse teams at UVA. I hate him for thinking he’s untouchable—not because he’s a narcissistic, privileged, borderline-misogynistic heartbreaker—but because he’s right.
His first words to me were at a Crew House party, and he literally invited me to have a threesome with him and a random girl. I could’ve died from the embarrassment, he didn’t even know my name at the time, and he didn’t care to. After that night, I promised myself to never waste another second thinking about Nate Thornhilll.
My world becomes a nightmare when I realize my mom’s new husband Pierce has a son who’s my age…and he’s a junior at UVA too. I can’t believe my eyes when Nate walks over and sits down next to us at dinner, introducing himself like he’s never seen me before in his life.
Then I feel his hand on my thigh, underneath the tablecloth with our parents sitting across from us, inching closer and closer to my panties. My mind goes fuzzy, my heart starts racing, and my body does exactly what I don’t want it to do.
And then they hit me with the worst news of all…
Pierce has an internship lined up for me at his firm, and we’re going to live at his Eastern Shore mansion for the summer.
I’ll be sleeping down the hall from my new stepbrother…arguing with him at every breakfast, sitting across from him at every dinner, watching as he brings an endless string of girls back to his room…secretly wishing I was one of them.

There’s something wrong with me. Something dark, something twisted. Daddy always said I could make even the holiest of men sin…and you know what? He was right.
After being stolen for five years, my life is not my own. It’s unrecognizable. A new house, a new family…even stepbrothers. I’m the face America has prayed for, but I don’t want to be. I was safe when I was away, and now that I’m back in Midpark, the monsters will come out and play.
Cruel. Vicious. Evil. Everyone sins, but some sins are worse than others. Some sins just can’t be forgiven, and it’s only when they enter my life that I realize this. Handsome and dangerous, Zane and Thorn make me question everything I thought I knew.
Maybe I could have a life. Maybe I can ignore the darkness inside and forget the terrors of my past. Maybe they could teach me what love really means, how to fight back against the bullies in my life.
Or maybe not. Maybe this new beginning is simply my ending.
