The first time I meet Joe Channing he’s dressed head-to-toe in black, lurking around my grandmother's house.
Up to no good? All signs point to yes.
Dangerous? Obviously. Just look at him.
Sexy as hell? With those blue eyes and that wicked smile—I mean, he isn’t NOT good-looking...
The second time I see him, he’s trying to kill my grandmother. At least it looks that way. At first. Maybe I misjudged the situation, but that doesn’t mean I misjudged him.
Joe and I? We’re oil and water. Gasoline and a flame. Great hair and a windy day.
I’m a doctor. I help sick kids. As for him? I suspect serial killer with his sights set on my grandma. While I'd be happy to never see him again, she falls for him hook, line, and sinker, then hires him to renovate her house.
I’ve never met someone who makes me feel so…
I want to grab him. And shake him. And kiss him until he can't see straight...
Hold on. Say what now?
A full-length, standalone romantic comedy filled with hilarious characters and sizzling chemistry. You'll adore this grumpy hero and his sassy heroine as they stumble into their happily ever after. Laugh, swoon, and fall in love!
I lost my journal. No big deal, right? It’s only the most honest parts of me. Raw. Uncensored. Humiliating. It’s a race against time to get it back before someone finds it.
Except someone did find it. And read it. AND COMMENTED.
Sexual boundaries aren’t just crossed in his message, they’re obliterated. His words drop my jaw and flush my cheeks, then piss me off. He has the audacity to demand I contact him. Not gonna happen, buddy.
Except, after a tequila-fueled tirade, I do just that…
The man I find overflows with kindness and humor and depth. I don’t even know his name, but I fall in love with his mind, opening up in ways I never have with anyone. I'm vulnerable. Bare. Real.
Meanwhile, I meet Lucas Hutton—a Marine with scars covering his body, heart, and soul.
The chemistry between us is a force of nature, beautiful, powerful, and impossible to ignore.
His intensity leaves me reeling. The physical attraction has me melting. I want to pull back his layers and find the man hiding under that scowling exterior.
Mind versus body.
Physical versus mental.
Kind versus passionate.
I have to choose between them.
I just don’t know how I can.
Beyond Words is a poignant standalone contemporary romance. Heat, heart, and hilarity wait for you in this unconventional love triangle with no cheating and a guaranteed happily ever after!
Our story is a slow dance of seduction...
Wyatt Hutton’s pale blue eyes steal my breath—though I only see them for a second before he refuses to look at me again.
He’s older than me. By way too much. If that wasn't enough to keep us apart, the truth of our families should do the trick.
His father, a drunk and a cheat.
My mother? The mistress.
But life keeps bringing us together again.
I don't want to need him, but Wyatt is the one I turn to when things fall to pieces. And while he tries to keep his distance, he's just as drawn to me as I am to him.
We fight our feelings.
We fight our families.
We even fight fate.
Maybe it’s time we fight for each other instead…
"...a modern day star-crossed lover story." (...with a happily ever after, of course!)
This emotional age-gap/forbidden contemporary romance has all the joy and angst you can expect from Abby Brooks. BEYOND LOVE can be read as a standalone, but to get the most out of the experience, read the Hutton Family series in order.
I was six the first time I proposed. Twenty years later, will she say I do?
In kindergarten, I fell in love with Maisie Brown. In seventh grade, she moved out of state. Now, she’s back…
…but only for a week.
When fate brings Maisie back to me, it’s clear life has been good to her. My childhood best friend, that shy little girl who never had enough to eat, she grew into a gorgeous woman wearing confidence like a designer dress. And the connection between us? It grew, too…into chemistry so explosive the world might catch fire. Six-year-old me was a genius. Maisie and I were made for each other, even if she does like to "go, go, go," while I prefer to "go with the flow."
But my roots—my family, my business, my history—are firmly planted in Key West and her shiny new life sparkles in Los Angeles. When this week ends, so does whatever this is between us…along with my chance to make good on my childhood promise.
Two roommates. One pact. A kiss that changes everything.
Moving in with Eli Hutton was supposed to keep my heart safe. After both our relationships crashed and burned, cohabitation seemed like a no-brainer. A reset from chaos back to stability. A chance to protect one another from Cupid and his stupid little arrows.
Sure, he’s adorable… Hilarious… Gorgeous… And so charming he makes me feel like the brightest star in the sky…
Alright, fine. The man is a sinfully sexy angel sent to tempt me each and every day. (Don’t judge. No one can resist him. You’ll see.)
All that aside, Eli’s like a brother to me. And for him, I’m just one of the guys.
But somewhere along the line, I did the one thing I swore I wouldn’t. I fell in love. With him. It was only a little—at first. Then one accidental kiss sent my traitorous heart into overdrive.
I swear, it’s just a phase. I’m sure it’ll pass with time. I just need to keep my feelings secret until things go back to normal.
Then again, the heart wants what the heart wants…and mine wants him.
Warning! This standalone friends-to-lovers romance includes:
- A broken accidental nudity clause
- A strange interaction with a Pinky Finger
- Kindle-melting chemistry
- And a strip club named Eggplant
You know that feeling when the famous musician you're totally crushing on shows up at your brother’s wedding dressed as Elvis?
Really? Huh. Guess it’s just me...
Collin West isn't just hot. And he's not just 'the next big thing,' either. He's the biggest thing to happen to music since...music. He's got heart. And soul. And the most adorable ginger hair that’s somehow always a little mussed. Add in his bangin' body and bedroom eyes and it's easy to see why the whole world loves him.
And he wants me.
Harlow Hutton. Not-so-secret lover of all things Collin West. Dreamer of big dreams. Thinker of deep thoughts.
He falls into my life like a fairy tale, whisking me away on a champagne and glitter adventure around the world. London. Paris. Rome. It's a dream come true...
But every princess has a villain. Throw in some demons from Collin's past and our dream might actually be a nightmare...
One thing's for sure, hiding in the swirl of music and passion, is the glimmer of a happily-ever-after bigger than I ever imagined possible.
I only hope we don't get burned in the process...

When Lilah bets her brothers she can survive on her own in the real world, she doesn’t see the harm. She’s Lilah Moore—she can do anything. Right?
Turns out the real world is real hard and Lilah isn’t skilled at much. Enter Cole Bennett, her sexy as sin next-door neighbor. Every time Lilah has a problem, there he is, solution in hand.
Their chemistry is undeniable—even if neither of them is willing to admit it. The one problem Cole can’t solve? Lilah doesn’t do casual and he doesn't do serious.
Growing up, he learned that love hurts and relationships are messy. His motto? Best to love ‘em and leave ‘em before anyone gets attached.
At least that was his motto until Lilah’s first day at the pool, all long legs and hot pink bikini. She’s the first woman to throw his sarcastic comments back at him. The first woman who doesn’t fall into (and right back out of) his bed.
The first woman to make him wonder about forever.
Except Lilah isn’t who she says she is, and Cole is anything but prepared for the truth.

For every wound, there is a scar.
I'm happy to report the tabloids are right. Fame has ruined Liam McGuire. He's spoiled. And rude. And it doesn't matter how sinfully sexy he is on the outside, it's what's inside that matters most. And that man is rotten to the core.
But then that night happened.
A night when I needed someone the most, he was there. His strong arms wrapped around me. His lips brushed against my neck as he whispered all the things I needed to hear. That night, I began to feel something for him. Something real. Something rare.
Until morning came with a curt reminder that he’s rockstar royalty and I’m…not.
Maybe I’m cursed.
Maybe I should just swear off all men.
Maybe it’d be better for both of us if I could just walk away…
"A masterful blend of joy and angst."

With his brother’s wedding around the corner, James’ family is worried about his broken heart and won’t let up about his new lifestyle. Their worry gives him an idea—pretending to date Ellie is just the cure he needs.
Wrapped in the (fake) safety of his arms, she opens up in a way she never has before. The more they’re together, the more she’s in danger of falling for him for real. And the more James realizes that just when he turned his back on love, it showed up again, whether he was ready for it or not.

So much for love.
Christy Harris' experience with men could be summed up in one word. Awful. From growing up with an absent father to the abusive boyfriend willing to chase her across the country to stay in control of every aspect of her life, all men have ever taught her is that they take what they want. No matter the cost.
So much for happiness.
The moment Chet laid eyes on her, he knew she was different. So, naturally, when he saw that she was neck deep in trouble he had to step in. It's the way he was raised.
Watching a man—a stranger no less—stand up for her is enough to make Christy question everything she thought she knew.
There's no denying the spark between them.
Can Chet really be who he seems? Is he offering protection, or more control?
