I love him…but he’s forgotten why.


A lot can happen in six years, and Ash and Pete have seen their world flipped upside down more times than most. Being parents to Pete’s young nephew wasn’t in their plan, but life happens to them and they roll with the punches. Or at least they did, until new heartache rocks their hard-won happily-ever-after.


Ash loves Pete as much as ever—more, in fact—but Pete battles alone with a burden that weighs heavily on his heart. Ash is no stranger to dark clouds, but the secret Pete keeps from him is a storm that could break them.


Despite the fierce love that once buoyed them, they’re both drowning until a new friend throws them a lifeline. His wisdom offers insight—for better or worse, real love is rarely a smooth journey. For Ash and Pete to come full circle once more, they’ll have to hit the road and chase it.

Excerpt



Okay, so feline-themed clubs were definitely not my bag, but I couldn’t deny that it felt amazing to be out and proud with Ash. I sank into a couple of beers, and the dark cloud that had become my constant companion lifted a touch, chased away by neon lights, glitter, and the swathes of naked man skin all around us.


Not that I took much notice of any man but Ash. He was never going to take his shirt off in public, but he didn’t need to. The fucker turned heads wherever he went, and the fact that he had no idea made me love him even more.


Made me want him even more.


We didn’t dance. Ever. But clubs had always made us horny in the past, and this one was no exception. The music ramped up and the heat seeped into us. The crowds thickened, pushing us ever closer. I pressed myself tight against Ash, so absorbed in him that I forgot to glare at anyone who dared look his way, and backed him into a nearby wall. “I like this club.”


“Yeah?” Ash hadn’t touched any booze, but his face was as flushed as mine felt, his eyes as hooded, and his skin jumped when I slid my hands beneath his T-shirt and over his chest. He licked his lips. “Do you think we’re gonna be here long?”


I doubted it, and it wouldn’t be the first time we’d cut loose early to run home and bang. But we weren’t at home now, and as I kissed Ash, it occurred to me that we’d never fucked anywhere that wasn’t our home. If tonight went the way most of our club adventures had before, where would it end? Would Ash fuck me in a hotel? I honestly had no idea. And whose fault is that? If I’d come with him when he’d first started traveling two years ago, I’d know, and perhaps would have even persuaded him that we could fuck anywhere we damn well pleased.


We kissed for hours in the club. The fact that Ash made no move to hustle me out clued me in to how he felt about banging in our hotel room, but I didn’t let that stop me enjoying him. Because, fuck, I’d missed him, even though he’d been right there from the moment I’d met him. Ash was my home, my family, my everything. We didn’t need to screw for me to know that.

Father Stuart Ballard has been Marcus Stearns’ confessor since the young Jesuit was only eighteen years old. He thought he’d heard every sin the boy had to confess until Marcus uttered those three fateful words: “I met Eleanor.”

So begins the 40-page “The Confession of Marcus Stearns,” a moving coda to the RITA® Award-winning Original Sinners series. This collection also includes “The Confession of Eleanor Schreiber,” a companion 36-page story written exclusively for The Confessions. And, finally, all secrets are revealed in “The Confession of Tiffany Reisz,” an exclusive, in-depth interview. Three Sinners. Three confessions. And all the dirty little secrets you could possibly desire…

Anytime there is a plan to read anything surrounding this motley crew I’m all in like poker baby! I finally learn how to pronounce Soren. LOL. I loved read Soren & Father Ballard confession. It was things I knew already, but seeing them from Soren is always heart-melting. Goodness I loved that so much, and Father Ballard was hilarious. He was the perfect confessor for Soren and Nora. These confessions delve deeper into the personal relationships between everyone involved. It answers some question that we might have and gives us new hopes on future things. The relationship between Soren and Nora still feels so very new after all this time. It’s nothing that these two won’t do for each other. They simply know and love each other, I always things it’s on another level.

After reading both confessions from the sinners, we have an in-depth interview with Tiffany Reisz. I’m excited about that. Well I was excited when I started reading it, and then something happened that I’ve never experienced from this author before. I was bored. Completely bored by the interview. Not bored by her per say, bored because I’m not catholic, and I don’t know if all her readers are, but alot of the terminology went over my head. It was alot about the church, and the religion aspect. I mean I just get the minimal with the series LOL. I was born and raised as a Baptist Christian, so my religion is simple to me. I tried looking up stuff. It was too much for me to stop and look up. I think those parts definitely brought my happiness down with all that was accomplished before we got to these parts. I do appreciate the interview. I learned some new things about this amazing author. I would like to see more with the series, but totally understand it not being the right time for it.
