TAINT
(The SNAP Trilogy #2)
By Tara Dawn

“Captivating and enthralling – this series certainly will not let you go.”
~ Bonny Capps, author of The Killer Series

“This suspense-packed thriller is one that fans of dark romance should not miss.”
~ Courtney Lane, author of the Wicked Trinity Series

I’m so excited to get this installment into everyone’s hands. It was a very emotional story for me to write. One that left me stranded at the top of a crazy ass rollercoaster. If you have yet to become a Snap Addict, don’t run away. I’ve got a special going on for new readers. Thanks for checking out my newest release. I hope you enjoy it.

Synopsis

Hazel
I don’t know who I am anymore, or what I’m becoming. Time doesn’t exist in this godforsaken Hell I call my life. Every time I find a semblance of hope, it’s bled away. Just like I’m bleeding away. The longer he believes he’s won, the more I die inside. I may be nothing but a shell by the time this is over.

Cash
I failed her. I couldn’t keep her safe. Now I may lose her completely. We’re running against a clock controlled by a madman and we don’t know when he plans to end his game. Every minute that passes without finding him makes the thought of killing him that much sweeter.

Phil
I didn’t think it would be so easy. Pretty soon, my Snap will be on the streets and I’ll be living the dream. That is, after I take Cash out. With him gone, I’ll control not only the drug, but Hazel as well. If she listens, she will have a hell of a life. Right. Beside. Me.

*This series contains scenes of drug abuse, brutality, and rape. Reader discretion is advised.

Excerpt

My hand slips from his and I make my way to the kitchen. I look at the bottle and back to my glass for a moment before putting the bottle to my lips. The wine fills my mouth, and I gulp it down hoping it will drown the emotions swirling within me. But the lump in my throat remains and grows larger with every pull off the bottle. The more I swallow, the more it feels like I’m choking. I lower the bottle, letting it thunk on the counter top, and try to breathe through the panic attack building inside of me.

“I was infatuated with you.”

The rumble of his voice makes me clutch the counter, my breath caught in my chest. As much as I want to know, I can’t listen to it right now. It’s all too much to take in when I’m still coming to terms with what Phil did to me.

“The longer I watched you, the more I was drawn to you,” he continues, his voice getting closer. “You learn a lot about people when they don’t know you’re looking.” My back warms as the heat of his body gets closer. He places his hands on the counter, trapping me between his arms. “Want to know what I learned about you?”

I stare down at the counter, thankfully hidden by the curtain of hair falling around my face, and shake my head. Cash’s slight stubble on his jaw rubs against the side of my face as he leans closer, his chest grazing my back. His heart beats a rhythm that mine recognizes and tries to keep in tune with. I’d rather face Phil right now, because at least I know where I stand with him.

“You are selfless,” he says, disregarding me. “You’re happiest when those around you are happy. You have this need to help others without getting anything in return. But you’re too prideful to let anyone in and help you when you need it most. You push people away by putting the focus back on them and deal with shit that you shouldn’t have to deal with alone. And you do it all with the most beautiful smile I have every seen.” His arms drape gently around me, and he rests his head against mine. “It’s hard to find genuinely good people in the world,” he whispers. “Trust me, I know. I’ve spent my life watching people selfishly choose their needs over others. And I turned into one of them.”

Cash turns me around and cups the side of my face lifting it up to his. “I didn’t want this to happen. I wanted to do my job and come home. But I couldn’t stop thinking about you. I wanted what you gave everyone else freely. So I selfishly took it. I needed to see you smile at me like that and know I was the reason for it. And when you did, I couldn’t get enough.” He searches my eyes as he bares his heart to me. His mouth hovers over mine, bathing my lips in the warmth of his whiskey-scented breath with every word. “I wanted more. I thought I’d get it and walk away from you when this was over. But there’s a piece of me that thinks I deserve this…” His lips brush against mine tormentingly as the shaky words fall from his lips. “That I deserve you.”

Synopsis

What do you do when the one you least expect to matter…

Ends up mattering the most?

Derek Pearson likes to think he’s an easygoing guy. Uncomplicated, upfront, and unapologetic with what he wants. His what you see is what you get attitude is on prominent display for anyone who cares to look, and his foul mouth is right there to back it up should you miss the point.

However, what you see isn’t always what you get, and only a select few have ever glimpsed the real man under the brash exterior.

Among them? Professor Jordan Devaney. Complicated, high-maintenance, and vibrant, he’s Derek’s opposite in every way. From the moment they saw each other, a love-hate relationship began.

But what happens when one person wants more?

Finley (Sunset Cove Series #1)

AMAZON US | AMAZON Universal

Finley-EllaFrank-CustomDesign-JayAheer2016-WM-Ebook-finalimage

It’s time to come home, Finn.

It’s been seven years since Daniel Finley left his hometown in Florida for the hustle and bustle of Chicago’s city life.

Since then, he’s worked hard for his position at the prestigious law firm Leighton & Associates, even when it’s caused distance and isolation from his family and friends. But that’s all about to change.

On his thirtieth birthday, he receives the one thing he never dared hope for. Something that was promised to him years earlier—a note. One simple sentence from the man he’s never been able to forget.

Six words will forever change the course of their lives.

Brantley Hayes has it all. Or so he thinks. When he first made the decision to take a job down in Florida, his family thought he was crazy. But, after years of living in the quiet beach town, he finally feels a sense of community. He’s surrounded himself with friends who are like family, has a job he loves, and owns a spectacular beachfront property that is his sanctuary.

Yet he still feels unfulfilled, as if a piece of the puzzle is missing, and he knows exactly which piece it is. On an impulse, he follows through with a promise he made years earlier. A promise to call home the one he sent away.

Nothing is as simple as it seems.

After years of separation, the former lovers are reunited, but Brantley wasn’t expecting to encounter the high walls now guarding Daniel’s heart.

Daniel may not be the same person he was when he left, but he knows that the first step to healing is the note in his hand.
