Haunting Adeline by Renee Carlino

Especially not when I plead for him to leave. He’s always there, watching and waiting. And I can never look away. Not when I want him to come closer.

The Shadow: I didn’t mean to fall in love. But now that I have, I can’t stay away. I didn’t mean to fall…. Read more.

Be My Brayshaw by Meagan Brandy 

Be My Brayshaw by Meagan Brandy

Cross one, cross all. That’s the Brayshaw way. She should have realized this before sliding into our world with secrets too big to bury. She didn’t and now the target is on her back. The day her lies came crashing down, I should have forced her out. Instead, I locked her in, and with the promise, I would never be hers. I resisted, fought against us. I caved. I tasted what became my newfound favourite flavour and fell hard for the little liar. But then the depth of her treachery reveals itself, and with it a reminder. Our town is a twisted place, and… Read more.

Reign of Brayshaw by Meagan Brandy 

Reign of Brayshaw by Meagan Brandy

“Trust only those who earn it.”

A sentiment I follow without direction but holds more consequence than ever before. One decision, five lives, three futures. This is what’s at stake. One night, one choice, four broken Brayshaws. That is where we’re headed. Unless I stop it. I 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 to stop it. I have to remind him of what he’s chosen to forget. My town. My choice. 𝘔𝘺 ending.
