My Birthday, my rules.
My past isn’t pretty.
And after my wild B-Day celebration,
My future just took a sharp turn straight down the tubes.
My new mandatory (and severe pain in the ass) business partner.
She has me pegged as an arrogant a-hole.
A rich party boy packing a fat wallet and a stiff rod.
She’s not completely wrong.
She can think what she wants as long as she hits the road.
Once I’m done with her,
She’ll be running for the hills in a week – max.
Then I slip up.
Hot… sweaty… throbbing… unbelievable…
And trust me, I’ve had my fair share.
I need this girl packed up and out of my sight – pronto.
More importantly, I need the images of her perfect body scrubbed from my memory.
I might not want to run her out of town quite as much as I originally thought.
YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY… ONCE A PLAYBOY, ALWAYS A PLAYBOY, BUT HAS THE BAD BOY HARDICK BROTHER FINALLY MET HIS MATCH??
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Preston's story had to be told. His brothers all got their happy endings in books 1-3 of the Hardick Brothers Series, and although it didn't look like love was in the cards for party boy Preston, Isabella showed up out of nowhere and stole his heart.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
When I planned out the Hardick Brothers Series, I knew that I wanted one of the billionaire brothers to be a total wildcard, thus Preston was born. Preston is off-the-wall, unpredictable and a complete crack-up, but he also has a serious side. He cares deeply for his family and the business they all run together. When dreaming up his perfect match, I knew that his lady love would have to be able to match him blow for blow, but also be compassionate enough to see through his bad boy exterior and straight into his heart. Isabella is tough, strong-willed and the only woman in the world who could make Preston settle down.
Preston reaches up to pull the perfectly tied knot of his tie loose and I fight the urge to imagine the rest of his crisp clothing falling away from his body. “What do you mean ‘check into your room’? You’re standing in it.”
His eyes find mine and I quickly divert my gaze away from the bulging vein in his neck captivating my attention. He can’t actually expect me to stay here. With him.
“No Preston I couldn’t stay here, that would be –“
“Izzy don’t be silly. This is a three-bedroom suite. There’s plenty of space for both us. Besides I was hoping to talk business all evening to get a jump start on our plans for Aurora Crest, I don’t need you running off on me.”
I ignore the sly grin that ghosts his lips and spin around awkwardly taking in more of the surroundings. I won’t give him the satisfaction of knowing that I see what the long list of women he’s been with saw.
Preston Hardick is hot.
He’s hot as hell and I noticed it the moment I first met him. I’m not blind, but the professional wall I’ve built up is firmly in place. Unfortunately, I find myself distracted by how good the man standing in the room with me looks and get caught gazing into his eyes for a second too long.
The air in the room suddenly becomes thick and Preston clears his throat and runs a hand through his thick hair. “I was going to order some food and then we can go over the investment. Sound like a plan?”
I’m Alexa. Author, wife, mommy to two adorable fur babies and big-time hopeless romantic. When I’m not writing I love spending time with my amazing husband (my real-life bad boy), growing gorgeous flowers in my garden and finding inspiration for my next book literally everywhere I look. Love is all around us and it brings me so much joy to bring that love to life in each story I write.
I love bad boys and a good sweet and dirty romance. I can’t wait for you to check out my books and let my hot, filthy guys rock your world! Buckle up! This is going to be a wild ride.
