Life in Reverse
by Beth Michele
"You know, I don't know you that well and already I don't really like you."
"Well, I guess we're even. Because I don't like you much either. And don't worry about the knowing me part...because you won't."
Vance and Ember didn't love each other at first sight. They didn't even like each other.
Ember, with her quirky ways, and Vance, and his angry, broody exterior. But there was more to both of them than met the eye. And when layers were peeled back, all the broken pieces exposed, they soon discovered a lot more than they ever bargained for...
And found a love they never expected.

But when a student they both have a history with dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Danger is mounting and nowhere is safe—and the only people they can trust are each other.

My Life as a Country Album (Book 1)
"Loving you was a race I was determined to win."
I belonged to you before I was born.
I belonged to you when you first called me Cam and when I said my first word, your name, Jake.
I belonged to you as we grew up sharing a treehouse, a yard, and the lake. I even belonged to you when our three-year age difference tried to pull us apart rather than put us together.
But, I was most especially yours when you kissed me and told me you weren't letting me go.
Except you did.
In the most painful way possible.
And now I’m wondering how to turn my life from a country love song without a happy ending into one that does…
