The Lover's Game Teaser # 2

***Teaser Friday****
Hi guys,
As promised, here's a second teaser of The Lover's Game. This is the non-edited version. Please excuse any errors.


“It’s over,” I whispered, more to myself than to him. “You can’t have me anymore. You can’t sleep with me anymore. In fact I’d rather you just left and never contacted me again.”
He let out an annoyed sigh and pushed his fingers through his dark hair just like the way I had done the previous night while he had me pinned to the floor. “The last time I checked we were still together.”
“Then I am ending things right now.” Another sharp pang of pain hit my chest. I turned my gaze to the shaggy rug beneath my feet so I wouldn’t have to see his expression. “Can you please leave now?”
As if sensing I needed space, he walked back to the open window and leaned against the wall, facing me.
“I’m not leaving until you tell me what’s going on.” His voice was calm but the dangerous undertones didn’t escape my attention. I looked up to him. His face was as hard as stone and his eyes shimmered with something I couldn’t pinpoint.
“You know damn right what’s going on.”
“Actually, I don’t.” He pulled his eyebrows together and let out an annoyed sigh. “Why don’t you enlighten me, Brooke?” His hard smile belied his anger.
My pulse began to race—but not from the physical attraction that was still palpable in the air. Jett was playing games again, and this time it was the clueless card, but I could see through his pretense. More so because I had seen it coming. The thought that he thought he could lie into my face, enraged me.
“Damn right, you do,” I said through gritted teeth, suppressing the wish to throw things at him. “I don’t trust you as far as I can spit.”
He inched closer and grabbed my hand. I drew back before he could pull me to him and his hard body could envelope me, soothing me the way only Jett knew how.
“Brooke.” Another annoyed sigh. “Can you please for one moment sit down and explain to me what’s going on? The last time you broke things off, you didn’t have a freaking choice. So forgive me for asking, but I’m confused.” His voice was hard, his expression detached. I had never seen his stunning green eyes devoid of warmth and it scared me. His attitude suggested that I was the enemy. As if I was the one who caused him pain.
“What is there to explain?” I started. “I know.”
“What do you know?” He sounded so sincere I laughed bitterly.
He wasn’t just a good liar. He was an excellent one who could have probably fooled any lie detector.
I shook my head as I stared him down. “I know everything, Jett.”

****Teaser Friday**** THE LOVER'S GAME Teaser #1

Hi guys,

As promised, here's a first preview of The Lover's Game. This is the non-edited version. Please excuse any errors.



THE LOVER'S GAME Teaser #1

I say that I hate you, but deep inside I love you. Love is in my mind, in my soul, and deep in my heart. As it always has been. As it always might be. But for how long? That I don’t know. In love, we bonded. In passion, we rose. And in trust, we reconciled. I told myself that if you ever broke my heart again, karma would get back at you. And if it won’t, if it takes too long, if it forgets, I will make sure revenge will pay you back.
My name is Brooke and I know this: Love has four letters.
One for you.
One for me.
One for our child.
One for revenge. Sweet, bitter revenge.
I bet you didn’t see that one coming. I look forward to the day you’ll feel the same pain I went through. I look forward to the day I can look at you in the knowledge that we’re even. Maybe you had secrets, but this time I will make sure secrets won’t be the only thing you carry home.

Special Bonus Scene

As promised, here's an exclusive bonus scene from The Lover's Secret.

BONUS SCENE:

I saw it long coming—the moment my nightmares became real and my fear would unleash the worst in me. As much as I tried to forget all the things that had happened, I couldn’t. A part of me kept thinking back, hesitating, doubting that the past was over, always wondering if there was something that I could do. Doubt and hope were like a disease—invisible, but always present. Ever so small, they would grow to immense proportions, bringing with them nothing but chaos that would draw me in. So deep that I knew I could lose myself, and make me hate myself for all the things I could have done but didn’t.
Falling into the trap was one of them, as was defending myself and hurting a guy in order to escape.
Maybe if I had allowed him to rape me instead of trying to hurt him, maybe I wouldn’t be in the mess I was in. Instead, I found myself trapped in the staircase, my heart racing so fast, I was sure I’d die from fear.
Liz had been right.
I should have followed their orders and commands. I should never have tried to get away. Now I was fighting for my life and I had to get away, or I’d be killed.
I yanked at the emergency exit door. It was locked. A curse escaped my lips.
Shit.
I couldn’t retread my steps, back to them. To him and his friends. They would never forgive what I had done. They couldn’t get me. Not now. Not when they were so angry with me. I had to act quickly. There was no other option but to try and find a way to escape. Get out of the place as fast as I could.
Forcing my legs forward, I started to climb up the stairs...
