Tamed Prologue

 

Prologue

I hated the word whore. It sounded so…filthy. I’d been called a hundred different names before—slut, skank, ho, bitch, just to name a few—but when someone called me a whore, it would set my blood on fire.
As I stared down at my fate, I realized that they’d all been right. I was a whore.
There was no coming back from this.
I closed my eyes and willed myself not to cry. I’d done this to myself. This was what I deserved.
I hadn’t always been this way. Once, a really long time ago, I’d been innocent. I’d worn my heart on my sleeve. I’d looked at every day like it was a gift instead of the plague that it really was.
Life was so damn hard. I hated it. I’d hated it for years. More than once, I’d wished that I hadn’t had to deal with it, that I hadn’t had to deal with him. But fate had laughed at me, repeatedly throwing him in my face just when I thought I’d healed.
How could I tell him this when he seemed to hate me more and more every time we saw each other? How could I tell him this after what she’d done? I was no better than her.
What was once innocent love and attraction had morphed into something…volatile and ugly. By now, it was almost unrecognizable.
Who am I kidding?
It had never been innocent. We’d seemed to be incapable of innocence, especially him.
I would never survive this. The moment I’d seen him, even though I hadn’t wanted to admit it, I’d known that I would never survive him.
Tears fell down my cheeks, but I brushed them away as I stood and walked out of the room. When I reached my bedroom, I picked up my cell phone and dialed the only person I knew I could trust, the only person who knew every secret of mine—my best friend.
“Hey, Amber. What’s up?”
“Chloe, I need you,” I whispered.

Tamed Cover Reveal!


Tamed, Torn Series #5, will release on November 4th, 2014. This book focuses on Adam and Amber. Adam is the guitarist with a wild streak in the Torn Series band, Breaking The Hunger. Amber is the best friend of the main character of Torn, Chloe. Both of these characters have a wild streak, something you're aware of if you've read the other Torn Series books.
 
Tamed can be read as a standalone.
 
I hope you like your rockers a whole lot dirty, because with Adam, that's what you'll get.
 
 
Description:
Mistakes—my life has been full of them. Time and time again, I’ve tried to change, tried to make the right choices, but it doesn’t matter. I always screw up.

I hoped that Adam would be different, that he wouldn’t be a mistake. Our relationship was supposed to be about sex and nothing more.

Fun, easy, simple—that was what we wanted.

But things are never simple, not for me.

Adam changed me. He made me the person I am today. I hate who I am and what I’ve become. I'm not proud of the things I've done.

I thought my greatest mistake would be falling in love with him.

I was wrong.

My greatest mistake is much, much worse.

I’ve lost control.

I have a secret I can’t hide.

It’s going to destroy everything.

My name is Amber, and this is my story.

Shattered Ties Audiobook

 
I am pleased to announce that Shattered Ties, book one of the Ties Series, is currently being recorded as an audiobook. I am absolutely in love with what I've heard so far. Kirsten Leigh of Brick Shop Audio is the narrator and she's doing an amazing job with it! I'm working with ACX and Brick Shop on each and every step and it's absolutely incredible to see Jesse and Emma come into the audio world. As soon as I have more information on when the project will be available for purchase, I will definitely let you know.
 
Hugs,
K

Deception - A Note To Readers

With Deception's release coming up in just a few weeks, I wanted to talk to you guys about this book, and this series, as a whole.

As I've said many times, Deception is very different from other books I've published. Deception started as a random thought and morphed into something I never expected.

I see a lot of people talking about characters that drive them nuts because they are weak. I can understand their aggravation as I have felt it too while reading a book. I always wonder why characters make the decisions they make.

With that being said, I felt the need to give my readers a heads up before they start reading Deception.

Claire is weak. She tends to make extremely bad decisions and overlooks things she shouldn't.

At the beginning of Deception, I have included the following note:

A note to readers:
Before you start reading Deception, I want to make you aware of
 
something. Claire can be a bit ignorant at times. As a young woman
who has never really had a role model to help her learn and grow into
an adult, she can be very naive. She also has a habit of making
choices that will definitely make her seem weak and, at times,
annoying. Please remember that as a series moves forward, the
characters often grow and evolve. Claire is most certainly one of
those characters.
With that being said, I hope you learn to love Claire as I have. She is
one of the most diverse characters I’ve ever written, and I can’t wait
to show you what I have in store for her.
Lots of hugs,
K.A.

I wanted my readers to understand that I wrote her that way intentionally. Claire has so much potential and I intend to push her to her limits and watch as she grows into someone she never thought she could be.

Deception is a two book series. When this series finishes, I want you to be able to look back and see the change in her. I want you to watch her grow, take control and become the person she is capable of being. I want her to feel strong and in control.

Claire, Robert, and Cooper are some of the most infuriating and uncontrollable characters I've ever worked with. Telling their story is harder than I thought it would be. They've all thrown me for a loop, but I love them for that. Their story is going to become so much more than I ever thought it could be.

Now, I don't want to cause any spoilers before the book is even released, so that's all I'm going to say for now.

I sincerely hope you enjoy Deception! Only 21 days to go!

Torn #5 (Amber and Adam) announcement!

For the last few weeks, I've mentioned Adam and Amber's book over and over, teasing you guys. I haven't given you anything besides a few teasers. No release date, title, description... nothing.
 
I wanted to wait until I finished writing the book before I decided when to release it. I was hoping I could release it by the end of this year, but I wanted to make sure it was possible. I didn't want to disappoint you guys.
 
I can finally give you all some information on the book! I'm so excited to give you Amber and Adam's story. They are two of the my favorite characters in the Torn series.
 
I do want to point out one thing real quick before I give you any information - Adam and Amber's relationship time frame follows Chloe and Drake's very closely because the only time they are together is when Chloe and Drake are around each other. So, even though this is most definitely a brand new book focusing on Amber and Adam, you will still see a lot of Chloe, Drake, and Logan. Some scenes are new, but others are scenes from Torn, Twisted, Tainted, and Toxic told from another POV.
 
With that being said, you can still read this book without reading the others.
 
Okay, I'll shut up now and give you some information on this book!
 
Title: Tamed
 
Release Date: November 4th, 2014
 
Description: ***Book five of the Torn Series, but this novel can be read as a standalone***

Mistakes—my life has been full of them. Time and time again, I’ve tried to change, tried to make the right choices, but it doesn’t matter. I always screw up.
