Fixated on You
Christmas With you
"The best kind of revenge is to let him see how strong and beautiful you are, with or without him."
When Emma realized that she fell in love with the notorious womanizer, Carter Mason-the badass Soccer athlete--she bailed and jumped ship, knowing quite well how this will turn out if Carter ever finds out about how she felt about him.
Newly single, Emma parties in Hollywood amongst her friends--determined to enjoy her new status. Enter Hollywood's sexy heartthrob and sought out actor, Bass Cole.
Bass was clearly smitten when his eyes captured the raving beauty that is Emma Anderson. Without ado, he pursues her. Being with Bass opened a lot of doors for Emma. But as much as she was attracted to Bass Cole, could she simply put her feelings towards Carter Mason aside?
Carter Mason was the playboy soccer stud in their campus. Coming from wealth and good genes, he was used to getting everything he wanted. At a young age, he witnessed how love can become your worst enemy. It was a man’s downfall, an irrevocable poison that will forever haunt you, until you’re out of fight and gasping for your last breath. For years, he thought he was safe, until Emma.
Lust at first glance.
That’s what Carter instantly thought when his eyes landed on Emma Anderson for the very first time. She was a gorgeous woman who wore her sexiness and naïveté with confidence.
Both wanted to enjoy each other without the complications of love and all the drama it came with. But the one thing they both avoided unexpectedly sprouted, causing a rift between them.
Will they make it or break it?
Things with the already married Harry went sour quickly when she found out their affair had a bigger repercussion. Heartbroken, Trista had to do what was best for everyone.
Just as planned, she and Lindsey went to visit Emma in Greece. Trista thought this vacation was going to be a way for her to heal and come to terms with the gargantuan mistakes she’d made in the past.
Taylor Montgomery thought himself a rational man, but meeting the fiery Trista made him think twice. Her mask slipped enough for him to see it, once in a while. She carried pain and secrets hidden within. Her fire mixed with that vulnerability made him want to protect her all the more, but Trista wouldn’t have any of it.
One thing Trista should know about the tenacious man, though. He's not the kind of man who gives up easily.
Come what may.
Warning: If you haven’t experienced obliterating, complex-borderline-mental, transcendent kind of love—to the point of desperation—then this novel isn’t for you.
“I’m crazy about him, too. Bass has been this terrific, perfect guy. I’m scared how our relationship is going so fast, but it feels like it was meant to be that way… like being with him is never going to be simple or ordinary. I only have one heart, though. Sadly, it holds two men in it. One I want to keep, the other, I want to set free. How do I let the other free when he securely locked himself in, throwing away the key?” ~Emma, Frayed
Will they survive the tsunami of trials heading their way?
+ Bass Cole + Emma Anderson + Carter Mason +
Bass Cole only wanted a several things from Emma: Loyalty. Honesty. Trust. Love. What happens if none of these apply?
Emma was beyond glad to escape back to Aspasia and be with Bass again. After a disastrous weekend spent in London—turned into twisted mess after Carter’s persistent, over-bearing and unfaltering dedication to get her back—it seemed that the soccer-stud, Carter Mason was finally standing ground and started to fight for the woman he loves.
Suddenly, Emma found herself in a limbo when Bass started pressing for answers to questions she wasn’t ready to face herself. Little did she know that things were about to shift. Testing her limits as she fights her way out of the clustered mess she got herself into.
Emotions ran deep as revelations started to unfold—piece by piece. Fears. Doubts. Secrets. Heartaches and the merry-go-round carnival of angst continue.
ALL for one woman.
Bass Cole was devastated when the woman he truly wanted chose her ex-boyfriend over him. Forgetting Emma Anderson wasn’t easy, but he got through it. Months later, he was convinced that he was done and over her… until he found her standing, in shock, inside his cottage in Greece.
He was never more challenged when it came to wanting a woman before. But when he heard that she was single again, all bets were on.
When he finally had Emma, things spiraled out of control when he found out that she was keeping crucial secrets from him. Their separation brought a lot of heartache, but the worse was yet to come.
Now after that gutting revelation, how will Bass handle the situation? He did, after all, had a lot to prove to Emma.
Brody was determined to win her heart again.
Dimitris was hell-bent on getting her back.
Will she choose one or none?
Fiesty, vindictive and sharp-tongued, Lindsey Mason was always in love with her brother’s best friend, Brody. For years, she watched as he went through the women around her—but never her.
When Lindsey started dating another guy, Brody suddenly started to notice her. But Lindsey wouldn’t have it. She was determined to move past her unrequited love.
Her fate changed when she met the wealthy Greek actor, Dimitris Kosta. The playboy Greek McHottie was everything Lindsey wanted and hated.
Swept away in a whirlwind summer romance in the islands of Greece, could her damaged heart finally learn to trust again?
Emma Anderson’s career was thriving. Her personal life too—but she knew—it was all a ticking time bomb until everything blows up. What happens then?
Even if his relationship with Emma was going great, Bass Cole still had a long way to go to make amends after the grief he’d caused Emma last year. No matter what the future held for them, he knew one thing—Emma owned his heart. But will his love enough to fight the odds?
Losing the one woman he wanted more than anything, Carter Mason wasn’t ready to move on—or let her go. Even though he and Emma remained friends, deep inside, he longed and hoped to be have her all to himself. He knew that Bass’s doom was looming and he’d make sure he’d be there for Emma.
Both wanted the same woman.
Both loved her to distraction.
Both made gargantuan mistakes to hurt her.
After all, didn't they say it was all fair in LOVE and WAR?
They say that the apple doesn't fall from the tree. That the sins of our fathers and mothers always comes back to their children, completing a full circle.
Karma. Was something I was skeptical about and yet here I am wondering if I will have a better fate than my mother ever did.
I'm vivacious and quite the vindictive spirited woman. I also once vowed never to bow down to a man... until Dimitris Kosta came along breaking every barrier I had surrounded myself until I was stripped, bare-faced and exposed. He saw my beauty, my ugliness and the black heart I carried heavily inside me. I expected him to run yet he did the opposite. You see, this beautiful Greek man fell for me and yet I intentionally scarred him and broke his heart into smithereens.
And even though I had mended and nurtured his heart, the fact remained the same...
That I was still my mother's daughter.
Do you remember your first kiss? Not the I-dare-you-spin-the- bottle-kind, but the first kiss. You know, the one where you first feel your stomach somersault in anticipation and your heart pounds so hard against your chest, you’d think you're about to die on the spot.
Well…that was Brody Thompson for me.
For years, I kept my mouth shut about how I felt about him because everyone knew Lindsey Mason, one of my best friends, was in love with him. One drunken night in sophomore year, I spent the night in his arms. It meant everything to me, but sadly, I hadn't mattered much to him.
I've watched him chase after my friend when he realized Lindsey was starting to take men seriously. So I remained on the side, seeing the man I loved fall more deeply for someone else.
My love for him not only broke me. But it certainly crushed me into pieces.
UNDENIABLY US: BASS COLE
I once imagined the hardest thing a man could accomplish was getting the woman he loved to the altar.
This view instantaneously changed, however. Marriage by far wasn’t easy—far from it.
It was a boundless enterprise consisting of endless negotiations and compromises. Our marriage might be new, but we’d been through the troughs and over the hurdles. Though fate had dealt us a harsher hand prior to our marital union, I believed my wife and I would overcome whatever tribulations were given to us.
We’d come a long way. …
We’d come too far to let misfortunes separate us.
We were stronger together, weaker when apart.
