About DC Renee
DC Renee is a contemporary romance fiction author who tends to write stand alone novels that always shock you with a twist. She's been writing all her life. It started with adorable rhyming poems as a kid for anniversary and birthday presents, moved onto monologues and short stories as a teen, then transitioned to fan fictions before she found the courage to publish a book.
DC lives in sunny and (mostly) warm Los Angeles with her husband and their two toddlers - a girl and boy that want to "work just like mama," often climbing in her lap and "writing" on her computer. She's very close with her entire family - extended included, and her sister is her muse.
When she's not working, writing, and spending time with the family, she loves watching mindless TV, tinkering with diy projects, and of course, reading.

And what was I supposed to do when I needed money to take care of my mom? Sell my body, of course…well, now this sounded like the beginning of a bad porno…and you know what? It sort of was…the porno part, at least, not the “bad.”
Oh, no, there was absolutely nothing bad about Chase, my best friend’s brother, my best friend’s hot brother. He also happened to be the one to buy me – well, save me.
And the gentleman that he was, that was all he planned to do with me. Too bad, I had other plans, the down-and-dirty kind of plans. And this was my one shot at finally being with the forbidden fruit that was Chase.
Good news…he didn’t live up to his name…I didn’t have to chase too hard. I just had to convince him that he’d already saved me…now it was time to break me.
He was gorgeous, with dark tousled hair, full lips, a strong jaw, and a body deserving of a magazine cover. He was rich and cared for his mother deeply. On paper, he was the perfect husband. The problem? He was my husband.
I dreamed of a fairytale love story for as long as I could remember. I dreamed of a boy to fall head over heels for me and treat me like the sun rose and set at my feet, especially after living in the shadow of my perfect sister and never feeling good enough for my family. When I decided to earn my parents’ love in a dramatic fashion, I’ll admit that I never imagined marrying him would end up part of the bargain.
The kicker? Enzo Faust didn’t want to marry me, either. And yet, here we are, a man that I both fear and loathe is my “I do…for better or worse.” I just didn’t anticipate that it’d be more ‘worse’ than ‘better.’
I’m Paige Stiles, and here’s my story.

Bullied so badly in high school that it ruined my life, I spent my senior year in therapy. It was there that I transformed – not just physically, but mentally as well. I wanted a fresh start and going to college across the country was my ticket to that. It was a whole new world, and things were great …
… and then came the blast from my past.
And he didn’t recognize me. What was a girl to do? Revenge, of course! My plan was to make him fall for me and then break his heart.
Sounds simple, right? Wrong. If only revenge was black and white … too bad a lot of gray was in the mix. But one thing was for sure – I needed a way to heal the scars from my past. I just hoped I could.
Which is why I didn’t hesitate. I dropped it all—my life, my career, my home—and left New York, with my sisters, to come back and run my mom’s business when she got sick.
Cleaning wasn’t my thing, but my mom was damn good at it. So much so that her maid service was doing well with some pretty rich clientele.
He’d been one of them. I’d pictured a stuffy old man with a trophy wife, but I couldn’t have been more wrong.
Young. Hot. Rich. Charming. Sinful.
Though I hated him on sight, that didn’t stop me from wanting him.
So, I took him…and that should have been all. Just sex, no strings. And I’d return to my life in New York when my mom was better.
But that damn thin line…always getting in the way…
Maid to Hate…or Maid to Love?
It was supposed to be a straight-forward contest. Everyday heroes. May the best one win.
I was going to shine, to show my own hero, Sidney, that I had what it takes to make it at Modern Family. Not to mention, I’d get to learn from her. Well, that part I did. Learn, that is.
And I even had the perfect contestant, the one I knew was going to win it all. Noah Shields, doctor and hottie. I’m talking the “you can scrub me down anytime you want, doctor” type of hottie. One problem. He didn’t want anything to do with the contest. Or me. He didn’t think he deserved the hero title.
He was wrong.
He was a hero. No, correction, he is a hero. He just needed a push to see it for himself without letting the demons from his past and the heartache he was harboring taint the good man he truly was.
I was just supposed to help him see – from the goodness of my own heart. That’s the thing, I involved my heart. And when that sucker came into play, I was no longer playing for him to win the contest. I was playing for him to win at life…not just survive…and I was playing with my whole heart. Because it was his.
And now the contest was over, and I’m left standing alone, wondering if his heart isn’t too damaged to be in it too.
Abandoned as a baby and bounced around different foster homes, Kat Gingham never really had a charmed life. But now, things were really falling apart. She had no money, no job, and even her lying, cheating boyfriend was gone too. She allowed herself one night to cry about her situation before she picked herself back up. But when she woke up, she was no longer at home, and she was no longer alone. She was facing Mason, a guy who claimed she ruined his life. And he’s hell-bent on breaking her down, humiliating her, making her feel like he has all these years.
With tension flaring, questions arising on both sides, and answers truly vague, one question remains: Will Mason let Kat go or are they both in too deep?
And then Carter Anderson pushed his way into my world. Gorgeous, of course, charming, naturally, and cocky, a given—he called himself my friend and broke through every one of my carefully constructed walls.
Cue the “happily ever after,” right? Wrong.
This isn’t some fairy tale where the ugly duckling turns into a beautiful swan, and once the beauty beneath is revealed, all is right in the world. This is real life. When things seem too good to be true, it’s because they usually are. And when people say your past will come back to bite you, they mean it. And trust me, it does.

It’s all included in Young Crush.
She was the perfect image, the perfect subject, the perfect picture. But one wasn’t enough. So I took more. I took what she didn’t know she gave…herself.
And then that wasn’t enough. I wanted my fantasies to become a reality. I wanted her.
I went further, crossed more lines…I gave her what she didn’t know she needed. Desire.
And still it wasn’t enough. It wouldn’t be enough until I had her. She would be more than a perfect picture. She would be mine.
