Interior designer Carrie Newman could not have envisioned a more perfect life for herself. She had a great job doing what she loved, wonderful friends, and a close relationship with her sister and brother-in-law. Add in an amazing man who she’d hoped would soon become her husband, and her life was perfect. Until one devastating decision ruins her relationship and changes the course of her life.
Determined to make a new start, Carrie leaves Texas and heads to Palm Beach to pick up the pieces of her shattered and broken life. The last thing she expects is to find herself attracted to her first client at her new job—Brad Larson, who has proven himself time and time again to be cad.
But there’s something beneath the surface of Brad’s arrogant exterior that keeps her craving more of him—something almost sweet that Carrie can’t seem to resist.
Is Carrie ready to take another chance on romance? And will this new design of her life prove to be the right one…?
“Carrie Newman?” he asked in an über-sexy Australian accent. Her toes curled at the sound of his voice. He reached out his hand and said, “I’m Oliver. Jane sent me over to help you unpack your boxes.”
Whether it was the Florida sun or the handsome man who stood in front of her that hit her like a heat wave, she blinked a few times more, and shook his masculine hand. “Thank you for coming, but I can manage. There are only a few of them anyway.” She pointed to her tightly packed car.
“I don’t mind.” Oliver smiled and clasped his hands, his voice sounding eager and more than ready to help.
I certainly could use your help in more ways than one, she thought to herself, calculating that it had been quite a while since she’d last had sex, which was way too long in her opinion. Shaking naughty thoughts away, Carrie regained her composure. “Thank you. I’d certainly appreciate your assistance.” She turned toward her car and pressed the unlock button, and then he took the lead. Between telling him which room to put the boxes in and passing one another between entranceways, Carrie tried to ignore Oliver’s flirtatious smile and the dimples indented in his cheeks. Finally, they unpacked the last two boxes from the car, leading them to meet in the kitchen.
“Is there anything else I can help you with?”
“No, but thank you for coming.” She observed sweat beading the sides of his forehead. “Can I get you some water? I think I have another bottle in the cooler.” She pointed to the cooler Sara had packed for her.
He wiped the sweat off with his forearm. “No, I’m okay. Thanks, though.”
“Okay.” She looked around her kitchen and awkward silence filled the room.
“Would you like to come to Nick & Johnnie’s tonight? I’m working as a bartender there, and I’d love to buy you a drink.”
Carrie blushed and bowed her head. “I’d love to, but I’m kind of tired,” she lied as his face turned somber. “But maybe soon,” she added, giving him a polite grin.
Oliver beamed. “Wonderful! I look forward to seeing you again.” With one last glance in her direction, he reached into his wallet, pulled out a card, and handed it to her. “Call me if you need anything else. I work full time for Moving Waves, but call anytime—even if you need a handyman—I do it all.”
She wanted to say, “I’m sure you do,” but kept quiet. Shaking her head once again at the dirty thoughts that swam back into her mind, she took his card and smiled at him. “You’ll be hearing from me if I need anything.” She followed him out the door and watched him get into the truck.
“Goodbye,” he said after rolling down the window.
“Bye,” Carrie said quietly as she waved her hand in the warm air.

Though Nathan and Olivia try to steer clear of one another, working for the same fashion magazine causes their paths to cross again and old emotions are awakened.
Can Nathan forgive Olivia or will he take the next step with the woman he is currently dating? Will Olivia do everything she can to break them apart? Or will she choose her career over her heart… again?

About SOMETHING GREAT:
She didn’t know what she was missing…until he found her.
Maxwell Knight was dangerously good-looking, seductively charming, and definitely trouble. He was everything Jeanella Mefferd did NOT need now.
Fresh out of college, life was predictable and comfortable for Jeanella. She had the strength of her friends, the security of her job, and she was dating a reliable man; it was all smooth sailing. That was until one night, when she met someone who made her feel things she’d never felt before–dangerous, heart pounding, breathless heat. Never imagining she would see him again, Jeanella has no idea what to do when fate steps in and thrusts Maxwell Knight into her life, just as things were beginning to change around her. When she lands her dream job and travels to New York for Fashion Week, can she focus on her career instead of on Maxwell?
Will she ignore all the danger signs and jump straight into his arms; or would she
miss out on the chance of finding something great?

If you like a book with angst and yearning, look no further. This book about ripped my heart out a thousand different ways a thousand different times. I was so engrossed in this book that I could not stop. I HAD to get the end and figure out who she would choose or if fate would choose for her. Kris or Travis…what a decision. A love that is so encompassing and suffocating at the same time with so much drama…that is all I can say about that. I felt for Remi. Do you choose the safe bet who is almost perfect in every way, or do you choose then man you pine for and can never forget? That is what kept me furiously flipping pages. I am glad Wylde chose for me because I would have never been able to choose. It is a great read but ready yourself for the angst!

Daniella Brosen has always loved one man. She gave him her heart when they were teenagers, but he never knew it. He was her best friend. When he fell in love with someone else she realized she had a choice to make. She moved away from her and cut off all ties with him. She couldn’t handle being around him. It hurt too much.
Rendall Sousa tried to forget about his Daniella. He loved her, but she put him firmly in the friend zone the moment they met. When she disappeared from his life it broke his heart.

“I fail to see what we could possibly have to discuss.” She glared at him. “If this doesn’t concern Matt we don’t have any business with each other.”
She was trying to compartmentalize him. Pushing him into a box of things to avoid forever and only take out when necessary. He’d be damned if he’d allow it. They were more than acquaintances. He stalked forward and stopped directly in front of her. There was no space separating them. All he would have to do is reach out and pull her into his arms. Ren doubted she’d fight him. “There is plenty we need to discuss.” He let his gaze roam hotly over her face and rested on her lips. He raised his hand and skimmed it down her arm. She shivered under his touch. What would she do if he kissed her? “Why don’t we start with this.”
He leaned down and pressed his lips to hers. A spark of heat rushed through him. Dani leaned into him giving him permission to pull her into his embrace. Ren wrapped his arms around her and deepened the kiss. Their tongues touched lightly. A rush of desire flooded him. He couldn’t get enough of her sweet taste. Why had he put this off? Kissing Dani was everything he’d ever imagined it to be. Ren never wanted to stop.
Dani pulled back and stared into his eyes. “You shouldn’t have done that.”
He disagreed. The kiss was long overdue. “No. I should have done it ten years ago.”
