I never thought my first kiss would be on my wedding day.

But here I stand, clutching a bouquet of pale pink roses behind the doors of a Las Vegas chapel, and at the end of the aisle is the absolute last man I imagined would be waiting for me.

Thomas Bane.
Bestselling author. Notorious bad boy. Savagely handsome, dark as sin, chiselled as stone. And somehow, my soon-to-be husband.

Marry him, and I’ll land my dream job. Save him, and I’ll walk away with everything I’ve ever wanted. All I have to do is remember it’s all for show.
None of it is real, no matter how real it feels.

But first, I have to survive the kiss.
And with lips like his, my heart doesn’t stand a chance.

“5 – Without trust, there is no love Stars!”

You know when you read a book and you absolutely fall in love with characters because you see their strengths and weaknesses.
You like how they talk to one another, they have great conversations, they’re comfortable with each other, and they banter like they were made for each other.

Even though Amelia and Thomas’s relationship first started out as a business deal, it didn’t take long for it to develop into something beautiful and precious.

Trust between the two of them happened almost immediately.
Amelia would do everything in her power to protect Thomas, and Thomas’s protective instincts kicked into full gear when he was around Amelia.
There was mutual respect and a balance of power.

But, what I liked the most about Amelia’s character was that even though she was inexperienced with relationships, she wasn’t portrayed as being “stupid”.
She was smart, funny and protective of the people she loved.
What she lacked in experience she more than made up in compassion, empathy and love.

And even reading this book and knowing Amelia’s decision was going to come back and bite her, it still hurt to read that part of the book.

One of my favourite quotes:

“Everyone needs forgiveness.
I’ll beg yours again someday, and you’ll beg mine.
Because love isn’t perfect, but forgiveness is absolute.
I will always forgive you if you’ll promise to do the same.”

The Dedication at the beginning of this story says it all for me.

“To the quiet girls,
The soft girls,
The girls with more thoughts
than words:
Love speaks loud and clear.”

I thought everything about this book was amazing!
✔ Amazing Characters
✔ Amazing writing
✔ Amazing story

Congratulations Staci Hart on a fantastic story!

About the Author

stacihart

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

 

From roots in Houston to a seven-year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

WASTED WORDS—inspired by Jane Austen’s EMMA

Some universal truths refuse to be ignored.

Peanut butter and jelly are a match made in heaven. Spaghetti and meatballs are best friends forever. And guys like Tyler Knight don’t go for girls like Cam Emerson. She knew from the second she met him that he didn’t belong on her bookshelf, the six-foot-six ex-tight end with a face so all-American, it could have sold apple pie. But he doesn’t see the lines she’s drawn between them, as much as she insists that they’re there. Deep down he knows that despite their differences, they’re a match well made.

 

A THOUSAND LETTERS—inspired by Jane Austen’s PERSUASION

Sometimes your life is split by a single decision.

I’ve spent every day of the last seven years regretting mine: he left, and I didn’t follow. A thousand letters went unanswered, my words like petals in the wind, spinning away into nothing, taking me with them. One regretted decision sent him away. One painful journey brought him back to me. I only wish I could keep him.

 

LIVING OUT LOUD—inspired by Jane Austen’s SENSE & SENSIBILITY

The second Annie Daschle tumbles into my arms, I’m a goner.

When she asks if we’re hiring at Wasted Words, I can only say yes, even though we aren’t—it’s that early on that I realize I can’t say no to her. Not when she asks me to show her around New York, even though I already know I should stay away. Not when she asks if we’re friends because I want her so much more than that. But she isn’t mine, and she never can be. Within a few staggering heartbeats, Annie and I are caught in the middle of something we can’t find our way out of, with no clear answers and no rules. And the moment she’s in my arms again, I realize she can’t control her heart. Not the decisions it makes. Not the moment it stops.

 

WASTED WORDS NOVELLA—Cam is back at it, and despite everyone’s warnings, she’s determined to make one more match or go into labour trying.

Synopsis

I should have known it was only a game.

I should have known he was too good to be true.

He’s nothing but a player…

 Player, an all-new sexy, standalone romantic comedy from Staci Hart, is LIVE!

He’s a player.

He plays the bass with expert fingers. He plays women with intoxicating charm. And he’ll play me with the ease of a virtuoso.

Who better to teach me to play than the master himself?

I’m his model student, front row, pencil sharp. Pick up lines? I’ve got them. Free drinks? By the dozen. Kissing? Let me grab my chapstick.

But the most valuable lesson I’ve learned is that there’s so much I don’t know. Like why his touch sets off a chain reaction straight to my nethers. Or how I’m certain each kiss is the best I’ll ever have, until the moment his lips take mine again.

There’s so much I don’t know.

Like the fact that I’m only a bet.

But we are what we are. He’s a player, through and through.

And I’m the fool who fell in love with him.

Synopsis

Marble isn’t the only thing that’s hard at this museum.

His body is as chiseled as Adonis. His lips are as sculpted as David. And his ego is the size of the Guggenheim.

You know the type—wolfish smile and the gravity of a black hole. The kind of man who sucks all the air from the room the second he enters it. My cocky boss thinks this internship was wasted on me, and he doesn’t hesitate to let me know.

But he’s wrong, and I’m going to prove it to him. If I can stay away from his devil lips, that is. Lips that cut me down and kiss me in the same breath, leaving me certain he’s on a mission to ruin my life.

And maybe my heart.
