Excerpt ~ Maddison & Jaxon

Silence fell over our group, everyone standing stock-still—even the guys’ jaws had dropped—as I followed their gazes to see what the stir was all about.

I didn’t have to look far.

Holy freakin’ hell!

My heart sank to the pit of my stomach, my breath hitched in my lungs.

They may not have known who he was, but I sure as heck did. I knew exactly who he was.

Jesus! He is sex on legs.

My stomach fluttered.

His intent gaze caught mine, those deep, crystalline blue eyes and that smile; that cocky, sexy as hell smirk. Just as when we were kids. Always so damn self-assured. Only things missing were the tattered jeans and vintage rocker T-shirts he’d always liked to wear.

Now he was sporting a suit. A designer suit. Tie missing and collar casually unbuttoned. Yummy. Still a glimpse of the bad boy, peeking out. I was glad to see he hadn’t lost that completely, that cocky edge; he wouldn’t be him without it. Even with his steely-blue suit jacket and red shirt on, I could tell he was ripped beneath; the way the jacket pulled, taut in all the right places, broad in the shoulders and tapered at the waist.

That was new. Jaxon wasn’t quite so filled out as a boy.

I marveled at the red shirt. It was a bold statement, wearing red, and it was an eerie coincidence, being the same red as my dress. It briefly struck me that maybe that wasn’t a coincidence, his shirt perfectly matching my dress. But all that flittered away as I watched him, walking toward me with purpose in his step—suit slacks tugging slightly on his strong thighs with each footfall.

My heart was beating out of my chest, now that it’d leapt back up there.

I knew he was still alive and doing well, Dad had told me that, he’d kept me posted somewhat. But no visits. Not one visit home over the past seven years. Not one call. I’d thought I meant more to him than that. At least as a friend. As a… I sighed heavily.

I was wrong. I meant very little to him if he could leave without a word.

And now he just swaggered in, looking all hot and sexy, grinning like he had not a care in the whole freaking world. Just any other twenty-something-year-old attending their class reunion to catch up with old friends.

Only, he didn’t have any old friends. Really. Except me. I was his friend. I was his best friend. If he’d wanted to catch up, he knew exactly where I was, and exactly how to reach me.

But he hadn’t. Not once. Just left, vanished. Without a single word.

And now here he was, steps from standing before me and my circle of friends. Friends he’d always avoided like the plague. Pretentious social climbers, I think was what he used to call them. Posers. Along with the rest of the cheer squad, and football players; all jock types in general, really.

He stopped in front of me, all cool and calm.

Seriously? I wanted to smack him. And that smug expression behind that sexy smile. As panty dropping as ever.

“Hello, Beautiful,” he spoke in a smooth, velvety tone, taking another step closer and slipping an arm around my waist. His hand touched on the middle of my back as he pulled me to him, his lips brushing a kiss on my cheekbone.

Holy hotness. That hand, touching to the exposed skin on my back, and those lips, touching my cheek, so close, it was hard to breathe. As if a direct current shot through me, a lightning strike, everything inside me coming alive for the first time in seven years. His lips whispered along my cheekbone as he pulled back, blue eyes smoldering, locked on mine.

Oh, my.

How was this even possible, that he was standing here before me, when he hadn’t bought a ticket? Not that I’d seen anyway. And I should have seen. That name, it’d have jumped out at me.

I was experiencing one of those surreal, this-can’t-be-happening, moments.

Jaxon Jaimison, in the fleshas I live and breathe.

Jaxon briefly broke eye contact with me and flashed a quick glance beside me, to our audience. “Ladies,” he offered in greeting, charming each and every one of them with that delicious dimple and smile.

Once I’d recovered, myself, I followed his gaze to the girls, their mouths hanging open, looking all glassy-eyed and swoony. I couldn’t blame them; Jaxon was devastatingly handsome.

Grace’s mouth abruptly snapped shut, her eyebrows furrowing at me. “Thought you said you were without a plus one tonight?” she questioned, sharp and snarky.


“Yeah?” concurred Jennifer, claws out and acting just as catty as Grace was.

It fleetingly flashed into thought that these were the girls I remembered from high school… nasty, bitchy, catty, and competitive. Willing to cut your throat, stab you in the back, and take you down to get whatever it was they wanted. Regardless.

Because they, of course, were entitled to.

Why, had I considered them friends? Stupid!

“My little surprise, for my girl,” Jaxon responded, turning his attention back to me, the picture of charm and innocence. “I was out of town on business, but cut my trip short… I know how you love surprises, baby.”

HA! I glared at him.

What the hell? As my mouth opened to remark, he scooped a hand around the back of my neck and firmly planted a passionate, open-mouthed kiss right smack on my lips, his tongue intimately delving in and caressing mine.

Oh. My. God.

(Second Chance Stepbrother/co-CEO Romance)
He broke her heart when he left her seven years ago. Now he’s back to reclaim what’s his…
Maddison Cole ~
It’s been seven years since Jaxon Jaimison left town, stole my heart, my friendship and my virginity, and took it with him. Along with our secrets.
Now he’s just waltzed back into my life, swaggering toward me with his cocky attitude.
And damn if he doesn’t look good. Smoldering eyes, sexy smile, and rock hard body made for climbing.
Made for sin.
He’s the one man that sets my insides on fire just by being in the room; just by living and breathing.
The one man I can’t have.
The boy who owns all my firsts.
Now here he is, ambushing me with a grand entrance into our class reunion and introducing himself to everyone as my loving boyfriend, after not so much as a word all these years.
He says I’m his…
Says I always have been…
I’m not so sure about that. Because if that were true, he wouldn’t have left me, just days after taking my virginity…
Jaxon Jaimison ~
I knew Maddison Cole was mine the moment I met her. Didn’t matter that we were only fifteen. When you know, you know.
But then my father turned around and made her my stepsister.
I understand Maddison’s worries, but I’ll never leave her again. And unlike my stepsister, I’m not hung up on the forbidden, taboo nature of a relationship between us, nor do I care what others think. We’re older now, more established, both successful. I’m not taking no for an answer. After all, I packed up my broken heart seven years ago and left town for a reason, determined on making something of myself, to be the man Maddison deserves.
Maddison thinks it’s just one night, she’ll give in and then I’ll disappear again, but seducing her to my hotel suite reunion night is just the start.
I’m staying, moving back into the bedroom beside hers, and the office beside hers, as co-CEO of the family business, right alongside Maddison, the current CEO…
Jaxon nearly destroyed me last time. I can’t afford for history to repeat itself. Not with the future of our family and the company at risk. I’ll guard my heart and our secrets at all costs…

Can first love get a second chance?

Maddison ~

Jaxon Jaimison wasn’t supposed to be the one. Nope. I wasn’t supposed to fall for my stepbrother.

I made that mistake once. I’d be stupid to make it again.

But then he came back to fix what was lost and broke. All smoldering eyes, sexy smile, and rock hard body.

I tried to fight it. Really, I did.

But I never had a chance.

Jaxon’s mere presence sets my insides on fire, his scent and his taste put my mind in a haze.

The temptation’s too strong, too close. My body craves his touch, longs to be against his.

Just as I begin to feel hope for our future, let my walls down and accept what is—that Jaxon owns my heart, my body, and my soul—it all starts to unravel, when everything I hold dear is rocked by tragedy and threatened to be lost.

All things come to an end, and this might be ours…


Jaxon ~

The years apart have done nothing to diminish the passion between us, the ever-present pull and need. But wooing my stepsister into crossing the line into the forbidden and giving us a second chance, earning back her trust and her heart after I left and shattered them both, has been a bigger challenge than I expected.

Now that I finally have her in my arms, my bed, I’m never letting her go.

Of course, there’s bound to be a few bumps on the path to Happily Ever After. Secrets rarely stay hushed. But I never saw what was coming. Never saw our pasts coming back to tear us apart. Never saw Maddison pushing me away. And never saw having to literally fight for our future together.

Loosing Maddison isn’t an option, and I’ll fight to hold onto her with everything I am.

Even, if it kills me…

After years of reading with her children and passing on a love for books, Deborah was inspired to write ‘The Destiny Series’. What started out in the beginning, as a celebration of a loving, young, innocent friendship and the affecting separation after a move, spun into a mythical journey of the loving binds of friendship, deep family ties, and an intoxicating fairy tale romance, with the power of love that knows no bounds.
‘Memory Betrayal’& ‘The Deal Series’ followed, with a leap from young adult romance to adult contemporary romance. Deborah writes stories about strong, sassy, smart, confident women and loveable, good-looking, sexy alpha men, in a range of heat levels, from sweet to steamy, who always find their happily ever after.
Deborah Ann resides in Northern California with her husband and their college-age daughter and son. And while it can be a balancing act at times, with how busy family life can get, Deborah sneaks in as much time as she can to slip into the lives of her characters, and the magical world in which they live…
