Fresh off tour Blake Potter, the sexy bassist for Battlescars, is in Smithville, Ohio to work on their next album ‘Coming Clean’. Still pining after Aubrey’s best friend, Piper, it’s going to be harder than he expected to see her back with her long-term boyfriend, Cole. He’s trying his hardest to forget her, but no matter how hard he tries to stay away circumstances keep bringing them together. Being burned before, he refuses to let it happen again. He’s still struggling to let go of Rowan, the girl that made him the way he is.

Piper is fighting an uphill battle of her own. She’s working her ass off trying to make a name for herself as a tattoo artist. Her long-term boyfriend, Cole, was recently discharged from the Marines turning her world in a way that she never expected. When he begins leaving for days at a time Piper starts struggling to help him pick up the pieces. She calls the one person that might be able to help, Blake. He becomes the friend that she needs no matter how much it’s killing him.

What will happen when one phone call changes everything for both of them leading them in a path that neither anticipated? Pasts will come out of the shadows and threaten to ruin everything.

:An Excerpt:

I stayed toward back with Piper who went last, ordering a strawberry cone. I opted to forgo anything since my appetite only wanted one thing right now. We searched around to see where everyone went and headed to the table near the parking lot. Since the table was full we sat at the table across from them. Everyone was talking about what was going on tomorrow and ribbing on Kevin if he was ready to perform the ceremony. I watched as Piper’s pouty lips moved every time she joined in the conversation. Fuck! I was sporting a semi just from watching her. She slowly brought the cone to her lips swirling around the outside of the cone, it was almost seductive and I couldn’t help but envision her doing that to a certain part of my anatomy. I bet it would be mind altering.
“See something you like?” She whispered, low enough for only me to hear.
My mind was blank because I was already rock hard at this point. Racking my brain for something intelligible to say all I could get out was a lousy, “maybe.”
It had been a good two years since I was affected by a girl.
“That’s too bad, because I see something that I like.” She said looking down at my dick. I let out a low groan, hoping that it wasn’t as obvious as I thought it was. A drop of pink cream fell onto her chest and without a second thought I dipped my head and licked it off. She tasted amazing, a thousand percent better than the ice cream. Looking up at her with feral eyes she met my stare with the same burning intensity and it was game on.
“I’m going to bang you so hard we should probably exchange insurance information.”
She purred grabbing the back of my head pulling the short hair on the back of my head, almost to the point of pain.
I’d sign over my house, my car, and my bank account at this point. I looked at Jake who muttered something unintelligible, while tossing me the keys. Piper discarded her ice cream over her shoulder as we both took off in a sprint toward the truck. I hit the unlock button and helped her in. I climbed in behind her and shut the door behind me. Thank God for tinted windows. I leaned in and claimed her mouth swiping my tongue against hers. It was still cool from the ice cream making the kiss even hotter. She dug her nails into my shoulders, pulling me down on top of her.
Wow, she doesn’t waste any time! My kind of girl…
