Not The One

Author: Amy Daws

Genre: Adult contemporary romance
My name is Reyna Miracle. 
Even though a part of my name is Miracle, there’s nothing miraculous about me. 
My body portrays the tales of my life. 
Every feeling, every heartbreak, every emotion. 
Marked. Inked. Stained. 
A walking canvas of my messed up truth.

But there’s one confession I can’t put in a tattoo. 
A confession that will kill me to tell, but my best friend died before I had the chance. 

Now I’m left with him. 
The only one who can hold me in the night and squeeze that spot on my neck that feels like my lifeline between sanity and chaos. 

But we don’t work together. 
We’re absolute poison for each other. 
We’re a stifling, suffocating, sickness of darkness. 

But I feel safe…because I’ve made an art of pushing people away. 

Now he’s pushing back…
And making me believe…
Making me wonder… 
Maybe, just maybe…
I could be the one. 

~Not The One is connected to the London Lovers Series but will be released as a complete standalone~
excerpt

He begins to stalk slowly toward me—his tall, wiry build gliding silently across the white tile floor. I back up until I hit the half wall beside the fridge. “We said we weren’t going to do this anymore, Hayden.” I hold my hand out, pressing it to his firm stomach to stop him from coming any closer. I want to walk away, but a larger part of me wants to stop thinking about Liam. And there’s only one way to do that.

Hayden sighs and grabs a piece of my hair. He brings it to his lips. “You look sexy as f*ck, Rey. I like your hair like this.” He rubs the silky, dark strand against his lips.

“Nice key change Hay. But you should take those bedroom eyes elsewhere.”

He hunches over and nuzzles his mouth into my neck, licking and kissing a trail up to my ear. “Now why would I want to do that?” he whispers, his voice husky.

Goose pimples flare out on my neck beneath his warm breath. I ball up a chunk of his T-shirt into my fist for some semblance of control. His hands move to grip tightly around my waist and I could scream at my body as it arches into his embrace.

This is exactly what Hayden does to me. He makes me lose all sense of thought and purpose. It’s part of the draw. He’s a freaking mess just like me and I ache for the pleasure I know he can grant me.

“We say a lot of words,” he mumbles against my neck. “Let’s do less saying. And more f*cking.”

His words have an instant shock to all my erogenous zones. Suddenly, he shifts his head and swipes his lips against mine in a painful, biting kiss. The taste of red wine passes back and forth between our lips and tongues and my eyes roll to the back of my head as I let his assault intoxicate me.

His tall frame is at an awkward angle, so he slides his hands down my butt and lifts me up. I wrap my legs around his waist and he slams me back against the fridge. The cozy press of his hard on against my center instantly has my groin thrusting into his.

“God I f*cking love your legs,” Hayden growls and nips my collar bone with his teeth as he carries me over to my rumpled mattress on the floor in my living room.

This is what Hayden and I do best. We f*ck to forget. We’re a mess of dysfunctional, codependent, sex-starved garbage together. And it is hot as hell.

“A must read, hilarious and heart warming: I can definitely see myself rereading it multiple times. I read London Bound without reading the others in the series and had no problem with keeping up with the story line or characters, so no fear it can be read as a stand alone.”
★★★★★

“This book had everything I needed, wanted, and craved, a 5 star read. It’s has a sexy alpha male who says it as it is, who made my lady parts tingle. A heroine unlike no other – Leslie is unique, loyal, funny and completely cray cray. Frank, the gay best friend and self confessed pervert whose antics had me snorting in laughter. It has a story that took me from laughing out loud, to jaw dropping shock, to feeling of desperation and an ending thathad me sobbing into my kindle.”
★★★★★

“This fantastically written book has every possible emotion squeezed in there. There is some proper laugh out loud, holding you sides hilarious moments as well as some ‘i need a whole box of tissues and a bottle of wine’ moments.”
★★★★★


Climaxed

When Leslie Lincoln, a spunky, red-headed American, suffers an awkward moment with an arousingly-sexy British man—she thinks her life can’t get any more pathetic.

She’s done with men.
She doesn’t need them.
She especially doesn’t need their muscular thighs.
No siree, she’s going to forget all about the brooding,
complicated, and seductive “Theo” who captivated her
on the dance floor of a London nightclub.

Keep telling yourself that, Lez…..

Immersing herself into a new type of romantic cleanse,
Leslie thinks she’ll never lay eyes on Theo again.
But somehow, he’s managed to bulldoze his way
back in—her cheetah-print onesie pajamas be damned.

He wants more.
She wants to run.
But he can’t seem to let her go.

Both of them have a past—and neither want to share.
How can love possibly survive in darkness?

excerpt

“You’re incredible, Leslie. You have to know that. You have to know how special you are.”

I swallow around a hard knot forming in my throat. “I’ve never felt that before,” I whisper softly, my voice catching at my very raw and vulnerable admission. No hiding anymore.

“You’ll never feel anything less with me. I promise you.” He shakes his head disbelievingly. “You shine straight through me. You’ve brought me back.” He kisses me softly on the lips and murmurs against my mouth, “You’re impossibly special.”

In all my life, I’ve never felt what Theo’s managed to make me feel in a matter of seconds. Knowing my words will only pale in comparison to his, I return his kiss passionately,
whispering a simple ‘thank you’.

Becoming Us

London Lovers # 1

 London Bound Becoming Us

 

The dreaded friend-zone… The last place I ever want to be with college basketball God, Jake LaShae. I am losing my mind trying to figure out what this gorgeous and confident man wants from me. I need to break through his walls. What is it about me that makes him not go there? What am I lacking? When a mind-blowing betrayal knocks the wind out of me, and I think I can’t feel any lower…Brody stumbles into my path-barefoot no less, and sexy as hell. His direct and mouth-watering swagger is a breath of fresh air. The feelings this man gives me are like nothing I’ve ever experienced. But Brody has a past. A past that makes it nearly impossible for him to trust me and let us become us in whatever capacity that may be. Just when Brody and I truly connect, just when I think that finding my soul-mate in college isn’t a total joke, Jake comes back into my life…and messes things up…possibly for good.

Excerpt

CHAPTER 22

I pull away from his lingering embrace. He scrapes his chair against the wood floor, moving closer to me with his legs spread around my chair.

“What? What’s the deal?” he asks, seeming confused at my sudden change in body language.

“Just say it, Brody,” I whisper, looking down at my open textbook.

“Well, I’m feeling like it’s a bad idea now, with how you’re reacting, but…”

I turn to look at him, suddenly feeling courageous. He swallows hard and I see a muscle in his jaw tick rapidly twice. That’s something I’ve not seen on him yet.

“I heard some shit on campus today about you and that Jake guy, the basketball player.” My lips part in shock. This was not where I was expecting him to go. “I don’t know what’s true and what’s not, but screw it. I’m just going to lay it out there because I told you I’d be real.”

“I can’t freaking…” I start.

“I want you to not date anyone else.” He cuts off my sentence before I have a chance to finish.

“What?” I ask, feeling like I didn’t hear him right.

His voice is quiet and low, “I want you…to not date anyone else. Especially that Jake guy.”

“You’re asking to be exclusive?” I feel the heavy, uneasiness lifting off of me in slow swoops.

“Yeah, I mean. I don’t know where you’re at, or how available you even are. Are you like, seeing him or something?” There’s that tick in his jaw again.

I shake my head, my eyes wide in amazement.

“Well, were you? ‘Cause I heard he slept with your friend behind your back or something.” His face is surly.

“Oh, my God, would you please stop?” I ask, placing my hand over his lips.

“Well, I just need to know,” he mumbles against my hand, barely coherent.

“Don’t ruin this,” I say, widening my eyes seriously at him. When he relaxes, I remove my hand.

“I don’t want to see anyone else. And I need you to want that too,” he adds, sullenly.

“I’m in,” I say, nodding my head with a grin and threading my fingers with his.

“Are you sure you’re ready or whatever?” He looks down at our hands with a sad expression on his face. “‘Cause I don’t want to be strung along again. I can’t take it. And I can’t take the idea of you still having a thing for that guy. If that’s the case, you need to tell me now because I’m serious about this, Finley. I’m serious about us.”

“You asked me out for the first time with a frown. And now you’re asking me to be my boyfriend with a frown. Is this really how our relationship is going to be? If so, I need to have a word with my boyfriend,” I say, my eyes wide in challenge.

He attempts to conceal a smirk. His face looks so damn sexy, I can’t help myself. I grab his cheeks and lay a hard, smacking kiss on him.

“If it means you’ll keep saying yes, I’ll be a pouty bitch as often as it takes,” he murmurs against my mouth.

“You’re lucky you’re hot.” We both laugh and he pulls me into his chest.

“I like you calling me your boyfriend,” he says smugly. Relief washes through me at the clear label he just put on us. The uncertainty of our relationship is gone. We are defined. And it feels damn good.

A Broken Us

London Lovers # 2

 London Bound A Broken Us

 

The moment those words come out of the doctor’s mouth, I feel sick.
So sick.
The life I have dreamed of…obliterated.
And Brody.
God, Brody.
How will he look at me?
How can he accept me?
He’ll know what I hid from him.
He’ll know everything.
It’s over. It’s completely over. I can’t tell him “I love Us” anymore.
Even though I do.
Even though it will kill me.
I can’t tell him anything. Everything is ruined. Pummeled. Broken.
I have to leave him. I have to give up us.
I know he’ll come after me.
I just have to do something to make him not want to.

Excerpt

CHAPTER 22

I open the door and steam comes rushing out. I quietly undress and toss my clothes in a heap on the floor next to his. I draw back the curtain and Brody is standing under the shower spray with his hands on the tiled shower wall and his head hanging low. He looks so sad, so defeated. I hate it.

He hears the rustle of the shower curtain and turns. His eyes rove down my body and return to my eyes and a second of excitement ignites within them. I step into the tub and he turns to face me completely, his dark blue eyes locked on mine.

We stand before each other for a moment, having a serious but silent conversation. His eyes are boring into me with intensity, pain, passion, and desire. Mine are boring back into his with remorse, need, and want.

I reach out and drag my hand down his chest. He grabs my hand and holds it against his heart. I can feel it pounding rapidly beneath my palm.

“I’ve missed you so much, Brody,” I say, softly.

 “Finley.” His deep voice echoes in the small bathroom.

Losing all control now, I fall into him and take his mouth with mine. He grips his hands tightly beneath my behind and hoists me up onto his hips. He turns and presses my back against the tile side of the shower. I cry out at the cold wall but he swallows my cries with his mouth.

“Tell me again, Finley,” he says, roughly.

“What?” I ask, distracted by the intense feeling of his hips pressing against my center.

“Tell me how much you’ve missed me. Tell me how much you want me.”

I move my hips against him, desperate for him to feel how much I’ve missed him.

“I’ve missed you, Brody. I want you so much right now,” I say, breathing loudly. “I’ve wanted you the whole time I’ve been gone.”

My hands run down his back to his butt and I feel him clench his buttocks in response. Our kiss is fast and fierce as we frantically attempt to make up for lost time.

“More,” he growls against my lips.

“I’ve dreamt about you, Brody. I’ve dreamt about you coming here and making love to me. You’re all I want,” I moan out.

CHAPTER 36

Theo is quiet the entire drive. When we arrive at his house, he silently takes my hand and leads me into his flat and into his master bath. He flips on the shower and removes his glasses and all of his clothes, silently gazing at me the entire time. He strides over to me and pulls my t-shirt over my head and undoes the string on my cotton pants, pulling them down as he does. We’re both standing before each other completely naked and silent, the shower steam swirling around us.

He grasps my hand again and leads me into his glass walk-in shower. He proceeds to tilt my head back into the water and watches me quietly. Leaning in and pausing, he breathes heavily against my skin before dropping feather-light kisses along my neck, collarbone, and shoulders. I bring my head back down and stare deeply into his eyes. I’m trying to figure him out but the raw vulnerability that stares back at me brings tears to my eyes.

He bites his tongue to the side and grabs the soap, squirting some into a sponge. He turns me away from him and begins washing me, reverently—gently and protectively covering every inch of me with the soapy bubbles. It’s overwhelming. The intimacy of it all—it’s all too much. Tears bubble up and fall down my wet cheeks.

Theo feels my shoulders shuddering beneath his hand and he turns me around to face him again. His pale brown eyes flash quickly between my green ones. As if consciously choosing to use actions instead of words, he tilts my head sideways and presses his lips to mine. He moves us back so the water is pouring down over our faces and between our mouths. It’s a waterfall of lips, tears, tongues, and ragged breaths. Feeling everything he’s telling me without words, I pour every single tear and ounce of angst I have into this kiss. All my fear, anxiety, pain, grief…all of it is swirling deeply within this soul-shattering kiss.

He pushes me back against the wall and pulls my legs up onto his hips as our kiss grows frenzied and desperate. He slides into me in one languid push and holds himself there, just letting our bodies connect in the most carnal and natural way.

He stops kissing me and looks deeply into my eyes. The vulnerability there on display for me to see—to accept—to love. I can feel it. I can touch it. Every single part of him—physically, emotionally, he’s offering it to me. It’s all I can do to accept it all.

Can I possibly love this man?

Q&A with the Author

What led you from writing your story with multiple miscarriages to writing fiction?

This is a really good question. I’ve always loved writing. When I was a kid I wanted to be a sitcom writer, so it’s been a little fairy-tale of mine for forever. Then when I started living this horrible tragedy of miscarriage after miscarriage, I needed an outlet, it was natural for me to turn to writing. When I realized I was writing it more like a book and less like a journal, I knew I had to publish it.

There were moments in Chasing Hope, my memoir…where I felt limited by the truth. I would be writing a fight between my husband and I and would think…”Oh man! It would have been so epic if I would have slapped him!” Or something like that…not so much for my hubby of course. But that wasn’t real…and Chasing Hope was a true story, so I couldn’t indulge in the drama.

That’s why I thought I wanted to try my hand at fiction. The first novel I wrote is A Broken Us…it deals with a Finely suffering through infertility and rather than facing her problems, she runs from them. She runs to London. When I was going through my dark times, I considered the same thing…now because I live in the real world and not in the book world…it really was just a passing thought. But when I considered trying fiction…I thought…what if…what if I had a character that DID run away from it all. Wouldn’t that be a crazy journey. So I wrote it!

Another thing I really wanted to do was make infertility sexy! It sounds strange put together like that, but I wanted women out there who suffer to feel like there can be an epic romance behind the walls of an infertile woman. That was really important to me. And I’m really really happy with how it turned out.

How did your love of writing evolve?

Everything I look at now is potential story material. I have become the ultimate interviewer whenever my friends are telling a story because I’m always like… “Oh really? How did that make you feel? What happened next? Where was this person when you said that?” etc etc. I’ve always been inquisitive, but now it’s even worse! I find beauty and sadness in everything and all of it could make a lovely story.

When can we expect to see the follow-up book to Chasing Hope published?

I get this asked a lot and I love it because I know I have some honest to goodness support out there, but it’s just hard. It’s hard to write about a sad time. And the follow up book to Chasing Hope will be a sad story. Chasing Hope had such a clear cut happy ending. Chasing Peace will be a little bit tricker. I keep saying 2015…I hope I can follow up.

What were you like in high school?

A goof and a chameleon. I was in everything…sports, drama, choir, band…so I had clusters of friends all over the grid and I could hang with anyone. No matter who I was with though, I was always joking around and making people laugh.

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you to date?

I peed on my husband’s couch in college. I’m going to pause right now for dramatic effect.

It was terrible. We were newly dating and I got drunk and he picked me up and took me back to his place. I somehow passed out on his couch and woke up in my own urine. I freaked out and cleaned it up without him ever know. It wasn’t until after we were married that I finally told him! True story!

No siree, she’s going to forget all about the brooding, complicated, and seductive “Theo” who captivated her on the dance floor of a London nightclub.

Keep telling yourself that, Lez…..

Immersing herself into a new type of romantic cleanse, Leslie thinks she’ll never lay eyes on Theo again. But somehow, he’s managed to bulldoze his way back in—her cheetah-print onesie pajamas be damned.

He wants more.

She wants to run.

But he can’t seem to let her go.

Both of them have a past—and neither want to share.

How can love possibly survive in darkness?

About the Author

Amy Daws is a goof of epic proportions. She enjoys making dumb videos and laughing at herself…a lot. It gets awkward. She thinks she should have tried her hand at improv theater but figured she’d learn how life looks behind the lens of a camera first.

She also thinks talking about herself in the third person isn’t awkward at all.

Amy lives in South Dakota with her husband, Kevin, and their miracle daughter, Lorelei. The long-awaited birth of Lorelei is what inspired Amy’s first book, Chasing Hope, and her passion for writing.

Amy’s contemporary romance books are a part of the The London Lovers Series and currently have two installments out with more to come. Her writing style is emotional and self-deprecating with awkward humor sprinkled in. Basically, if she makes you cry happy and sad tears…she’s achieved her goal. Extra points if you have to blow your nose.

Amy’s inspiration for writing is and always will be her six precious angel babies and her daughter, Lorelei. On most nights, you can find Amy and her family dancing to Strawberry Shortcake’s theme song or stuffing themselves inside children’s-sized playhouses because there is nothing they wouldn’t do for their little miracle.

Becoming Us

London Lovers # 1

About the Book

London Bound Becoming UsThe dreaded friend-zone… The last place I ever want to be with college basketball God, Jake LaShae. I am losing my mind trying to figure out what this gorgeous and confident man wants from me. I need to break through his walls. What is it about me that makes him not go there? What am I lacking? When a mind-blowing betrayal knocks the wind out of me, and I think I can’t feel any lower…Brody stumbles into my path-barefoot no less, and sexy as hell. His direct and mouth-watering swagger is a breath of fresh air. The feelings this man gives me are like nothing I’ve ever experienced. But Brody has a past. A past that makes it nearly impossible for him to trust me and let us become us in whatever capacity that may be. Just when Brody and I truly connect, just when I think that finding my soul-mate in college isn’t a total joke, Jake comes back into my life…and messes things up…possibly for good.

A Broken Us

London Lovers # 2

Blurb:

London Bound A Broken UsThe moment those words come out of the doctor’s mouth, I feel sick.

So sick.

The life I have dreamed of…obliterated.

And Brody.

God, Brody.

How will he look at me?

How can he accept me?

He’ll know what I hid from him.

He’ll know everything.

It’s over. It’s completely over. I can’t tell him “I love Us” anymore.

Even though I do.

Even though it will kill me.

I can’t tell him anything. Everything is ruined. Pummeled. Broken.

I have to leave him. I have to give up us.

I know he’ll come after me.

I just have to do something to make him not want to.
