##

Lia 

The walls of my house are thinner than they look. Throughout freshman year of high school, I would lie awake at night and listen to them fight. They thought they were being quiet. Whispering heated pleas (Grayson) and lobbing hushed insults (Alex). But I could always hear it.

I used to silently pray that this fight would be the last one. That it would all end after tonight. I would dream up scenarios in my head where Grayson would storm out of Alex’s room, all flushed and angry and hopped up on testosterone. He would slam the back door on his way out and I would tiptoe out of my room, down the stairs, and find him on the beach behind our house, where he taught me how to play rugby that first summer.

He would be standing in the sand, staring up at the moon over the ocean, letting the fury evaporate off of him into the thick winter air.

Then I would slowly approach, careful not to startle him. He’d turn around, take one look at me and march determinedly in my direction, his rage melting into passion with every step. When he reached me, he’d grab my face fiercely between both hands, not even bothering to be gentle, and crush his lips against mine. Pull my body into his. Mold his fingertips into the back of my head, compelling me closer. He’d force my mouth wide open and push his tongue inside. Tasting me. Drowning me.

I hope you guys enjoy the book!

OUT FROM UNDER YOU – Snippet #2

Out from Under You 3dHoorah! I’ve reached 400 followers on Twitter! SOOO exciting! And as a little celebration, I’ve decided to release another teasing snippet from my new book, OUT FROM UNDER YOU which releases on August 13!

And here it is!

###

My mind screams for me to stop him. Stop the world. Stop the waves. Stop everything.

Logic buzzes around my head like tiny cartoon thought bubbles.

“This is wrong!”

“You’ll regret this!”

“He will never be yours!”

But my body…

My fucking, traitorous, selfish body.

It’s so alive.

It’s pulsating with energy. With fire.

With Grayson.

Chapter Two

Lia

 

The day I met Grayson Walker eight years ago was a solid 9.5 on the Richter scale.

I remember the chasm that opened under my feet the first time I looked at him. The tremors that rippled through my body when he first touched me. I remember the fault lines that splintered and ruptured my poor, naïve heart when he chose my older sister instead of me.

Some might say I’m being overly dramatic. That I was never actually a viable choice—me being only fourteen at the time, and him being a whole three years older. Maybe Alex, in all of her seventeen years of womanhood and maturity, was the wise choice that night.

Maybe age was the only deciding factor.

But believing that would be just another lie.

Alex always won. It’s what she did best. She had, what I like to call, an abundance of mores.

More beautiful. More athletic. More popular. More sex appeal.

Just…more.

It’s a truth untold between any two sisters. A natural inequality that just happens without any specific rhyme or reason. Genetics don’t play on a normal distribution curve. God doesn’t evenly allocate desirable traits, diligently counting the score to assure fairness. Like two children divvying up a pile of Halloween candy.

Some people simply get the better candy.

It’s true Grayson was never mine to lose. And yet, somehow I lost him every single day of my life.

I lost the “hope” of him.

Every time his lips crushed against hers in the hallway of our high school. Every time I heard the moans of their teenage experimentation in the bedroom next to mine. Every time he promised to never leave her.

It was like having to reread the same sad ending to a disappointing book over and over again.

They were together off and on throughout their entire senior year. They would fight, break-up, then get back together in some dramatic showing before repeating the whole process again. I watched them shatter and fuse back together so many times I lost count.

It was no surprise when they both ended up attending NYU together. And their rocky relationship went with them.

That, at least, was somewhat of a reprieve.

I didn’t have to witness it every day. It was an echo of longing. A pain once removed. Decidedly better than the first-hand, front-row version.

Then, one day, their relationship ended for good.

Alex decided to stay in New York City after college, and Grayson decided to move to Washington D.C. And just like that, they were no more.

That was four years ago.

And I thought that I was finally set free from the heavy, iron chains of being unrequitedly in love with Grayson Walker.

But that’s the thing about earthquakes. Just when you think they’re over, just when you start to feel safe again, that’s when the aftershock hits. And the foundation you thought was finally stable enough to stand on is suddenly crumbling beneath your feet.
