Publication date: February 29, 2013 
Genre: New Adult Romance

Twenty year old Emma hasn’t left the house since she was attacked as a child. Now, with the impending release of her attacker from prison, Emma knows it’s more important than ever for her to regain control of her life. From her unrelenting nightmares, to her strained relationships, to her crippling agoraphobia, Emma feels as though her life is spiraling out of control.

When her professor, Simon Anderson enters her life, Emma must deal with feelings she has never experienced before.

Though both she and Simon know their relationship is bordering on inappropriate, neither of them are able to ignore the intense chemistry that is quickly developing between them.

What was supposed to keep her mind off the attack has left her more confused than ever. When there are so many reasons why you shouldn’t be together, is simply being in love really enough?


Teaser One

I watched in horror as Tom answered the call. I threw my face in my hands and collapsed down onto the kitchen counter. This was bad. I tried to block out his voice. I didn’t need to hear what he was saying to know I needed to be very embarrassed.

“Asshole.” I muttered.

“Hello?” Tom didn’t even bother to hide his amusement. “Emma? Yes she’s here. And who may I say is calling? Simon. Right, finally. I’ve heard so much about you. Em doesn’t shut up about you.”

I groaned, stumbling to the couch. I was so embarrassed. This was really bad. I threw myself onto the couch and buried my head in the arm

“Uh-huh. Right. Yes I understand that.” Tom nodded, his face serious, as if he was deep in the middle of an important meeting. “I do need to know what your intentions are toward my Emma. Are you planning on becoming intimate?”

“Fuck you Tom!” I screamed loudly. My face flamed. I wanted the couch to swallow me. I was going to kill Tom. It may take a while, years even, but he was going to pay for this.

“Right. Just be safe. And remember, if it’s not on, it’s not on.” He wandered out onto the balcony, knowing I wasn’t likely to follow him out there.

Could this get any worse? I wondered how hard it would be for Tom to ‘accidentally’ fall over the balcony of my level 10 apartment with me still standing within confines of the apartment.

“Sure, I will put her on.” I felt the phone hit me on my back. I reached behind to grab it. I contemplated hanging up. This was beyond embarrassing.

No. That would only make things more awkward. I would have to speak to him eventually.

“Hello.” I mumbled, cringing.

“Well hello there.” He said, amused. Way too amused. He was loving this.

“Hi.” I responded, feeling embarrassed. And angry. I was so fucking angry.

“So, Tom seems like a nice guy.”

“Tom’s a fucking asshole.” I yelled, loud enough for him to hear. Tom yelled back an inaudible response. Simon chuckled.

  • I am not sure if you would list this as NA but the first book that comes to mind is Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire. I have read so many but do not pay any attention to the genre to give a more accurate tittle. Sorry. 🙁 Thanks for the giveaway. I haven’t heard of this author buy I have added this book to my TBR list on Goodreads.
