For better, for worse, forever.

This is for readers who enjoy catching up with the HEAs of couples in the Sidelined series. All the stories in Sidelined can be read independently, in any order, except Shotgun Wedding, which is more fun if read after Offensive Behavior, Damaged Goods and Sold Short.

Excerpt from Shotgun Wedding.

Reid was on his knee before he recognized the movement for what it was.

She did. “Reid?”

“Marry me, Zarley.”

She gave a resigned sigh. “You had a scare and I’m mad with you for not telling me.”

“Marry me, Zarley.”

“It’s a formality and we don’t need it. And note to self. Don’t ask a woman to marry you when she’s mad with you.”

“You’re mad about me and I f****** need it.”

She came around the table and stood in front of him, hands jammed on her hips. “You already own me, body, heart and soul. I don’t need anything else from you but what we’ve got.” She took his chin in her hand. “What I know we’re going to have forever.”

“It’s not enough.” He intended that to come out with force, to match the way he jerked his face from her hands and got to his feet. They stood close, body-brushing distance.

Zarley was forced to tip her head back to look him in the eye. “If you die on me, last thing I’m going to care about is a fight over your money.”

“Since we agree on that, I don’t see what the problem with some paperwork is?”

She glanced away, a mischievous look on her face. “I guess I have to admit I want to keep my options open.”

Something inside him fishtailed and slid sideways. Merciless little witch. She was playing with him. He got in her face. It was a precursor to getting inside her shorts. “Your options closed out the moment you stood in the wings of that stage and let me see you. The moment you seduced me by being fearless on your pole. You sealed your fate when you punched out an a**hole in the alley and called me on being a drunk.”

She pushed his face away. “I thought you were a drug dealer.”

“And still you picked me up when I was down and put me to bed when everyone else would’ve left me to rot.” He said that while trailing a finger up her arm, from wrist to elbow, into the divot of muscle in her bicep and up to her shoulder. They both watched his hand.

“I did more than put you to bed,” she said, as he flattened his palm over her chest, thumb to the pulse jumping in her neck.

“Your choice in the matter of us was made when you went to your knees in my shower. When you took me to bed and showed me what to do with my body to make your body feel good.”

She leaned into his hand. “I rocked your world.” She did it every time she smiled at him. Every time he went to bed with her in his arms. She’d tilted his world on a whole new axis, made it revolve around her.

“It was game over for you when you drew up that list of all the ways we could pleasure each other and when you took me places I’d never have gone alone, made me a voyeur and a man who agreed to share you.”

“You don’t share.” Said with a wicked pout, a practice kiss; the shape her lips made when they were waiting for his.

He’d shared her that once in the park in Paris. “Not unless you make me.” And she could. She could make him do anything, even give up on this need to tie her to him legally.

She was right, it was a formality. It made his will a tidier document, less open to being f***** with if one of the charities he gave to decided they didn’t like a common law girlfriend taking the bulk of his assets.

“You scared I’ll leave you?”

“Nope.” Her one true failing was loving him stupid. And he knew what to look for. How to measure her touch and her kiss and her way of being with him against her own insecurity and ambition. He was never going to let those things come between them again.

She laughed, put her hand to his stomach where his temper still roiled. “Then what is this about?”

Dev and Sarina would marry. If Owen didn’t get a ring stuck on Cara’s finger before Sarina’s belly popped, Reid would be forced to concede he was wrong about the rightness of the two of them. He was never wrong.

“What’s the problem with a man wanting a woman to be his all the ways there are?”

“No problem.” Zarley edged closer so that all along their bodies, they grazed. “What’s the problem with a woman wanting to be a man’s partner without having that partnership defined in terms religions and lawyers find acceptable?”

Fuck, he wanted her. His spine was electric with it, his throat gone tight so his voice came out low when he said, “No problem,” in a way that made her shiver.

They stared at each other. If they touched, there’d be no more debate. If they touched there’d be instructions, hers; assurances, his. There’d be breathless grunts and inarticulate groans, a language all theirs when they came together in a clarifying rush of heat and tension and freedom.

“You win.” He put his hand to her face and sealed his lips over hers. She would always win, because she never asked anything of him he wouldn’t ultimately give.

Didn’t mean he’d stop wanting.

New Release! Beyond Surrender by Kit Rocha

Happy new release to authors Kit Rocha! Beyond Surrender, the final book in the Beyond series is available now!

Beyond Surrender was a powerhouse read with dramatic moments, and some hellish scenes faced by the series regulars, with life altering consequences for the beloved O’Kane characters, that bring to the forefront emotions that effortlessly poured from the pages. Beyond Surrender is the ninth full length novel in the Beyond series from authors Kit Rocha. Not all nine books in the series have flawed this reader, but all have contributed and added their own layer to the Beyond series – a series that has portrayed a vast array of eclectic, attention grabbing, entertaining characters. Beyond Surrender was a full circle read and a fitting finale to what has been an unmissable, explosive series.
Review copy received from the Authors



Short Excerpt – Beyond Surrender by Kit Rocha

Ryder touched her chin again—just a touch, with the gentlest pressure. It would have been easy for her to twist her face away, but she straightened slowly instead. With him sitting on the desk, they were almost eye-to- eye.

Except he wasn’t looking at her eyes. His gaze dropped to her mouth, and the air between them crackled. Nessa took an unsteady breath, fighting the sudden urge to nervously wet her lips.

He could kiss her. Right here, like this. He could kiss her, and that might be all it took to wreck her world, because he was looking at her like he knew what to do with his mouth.

What to do with her mouth. It wouldn’t be sloppy and clumsy like the drunk fighters who’d tried to gag her with their tongues as some kind of weird dominance ritual.

If Ryder kissed her, he wouldn’t have anything to prove. He didn’t need her connection to the O’Kanes or her ability to make money. He had his own power and people and wealth. He’d be kissing her to kiss her, and her body ached in a million places she never realized could ache.

If Ryder kissed her, it would be the best sex she’d ever had. Even if it stopped at just a kiss.

About Beyond Surrender by Kit Rocha  (Beyond Series, book 9)

She’s the heart of O’Kane liquor.

For years, Nessa has been focused on work. She keeps the whiskey—and the money—beyondsurrender_kitrochaflowing, and life is sweet. Sure, she’s tired of being everyone’s baby sister, and she longs for a man who can stand up to her overprotective O’Kane brothers. But she never thought she’d meet him in the middle of a war.

He’s the brains of the revolution.

War is all Ryder knows. He was raised with one goal: to ensure the sectors’ successful rebellion against Eden. His father and his mentor both died for freedom, and nothing will stop him from securing their legacies with victory. He doesn’t have time for distractions—especially beautiful, impulsive ones like Nessa.

Opposites don’t just attract, they combust. Together, Nessa and Ryder have a chance for something more than the lives they’ve always known. But this is war—deadly, bloody war—and the only way to happily-ever-after is straight through Eden.
