down to us (Zone Defense #2)

Of course No Take Backs was meant to be a single novel, but you know me, I fell in love with the side characters which means there’s definitely a second book. Like book one, Down to Us jumps between Australia and the USA, but with both main characters being American.

What to Expect

Coming Out | Friends to Lovers | Bi Late Bloomers | NBA Stars | Hurt/Comfort | Small-Town Australia-American Crossover

COMING SOON

COMPLETE (1ST STAGE EDITS) – NO TAKE BACKS (Zone Defense #1)

This contemporary romance kind of snuck up on me. Intended as a stand-alone, though there’s definitely room for more in this series with a wide cast of characters introduced, No Take Backs jumps between Australia and the USA, but with both main characters being Aussies.

What to Expect

Small-Town Australia-American Crossover | Friends to Lovers | NBA Star | Coming Out | Link to Bar QK | Closeted MC | An Intro to the Aussie Nutbush

My heart slammed in my chest at the news. I knew what this meant, and while it was incredible, I struggled to catch my breath.
“I’ve been offered a full ride.” Excitement lifted every single word, his whole body shaking with his words.
“Shit, man.” I shook my head, forced a smile, and swallowed the emotion clawing its way up my throat. I grasped him in a hug, squeezing hard and patting him on the back. “I’m so fucking proud of you.”
It was hard as Hades to get a basketball scholarship, and an Australian being able to score one, and in a division one school at that was pretty much unheard of.
I pulled out of Ryan’s grasp, carefully arranging my expression. “Have you told your gran yet?”
“Nah, you’re the first.” His words simultaneously hurt me and filled me with pride. “I couldn’t wait to tell you. Shit.” He laughed and held out his shaky hand. “I can’t stop shaking.”
I reached out and squeezed his arm. “You’re going to be amazing.” He would kickarse in the NCAA. Hell, he had the skills to go all of the way and make a career out of it.
Ryan’s smile slipped. “You’ll find a way to come and visit though, right?”
I bobbed my head, ignoring the hesitation slamming into my chest. When he left and I’d have to say goodbye, I didn’t think my heart could handle doing the same time and time again.
One goodbye would have to be enough. Saying that word to the boy who’d stolen my heart was already more than I could handle. But I’d do it the once, as he deserved all of the goodness in the world.
And me?
I’d be left behind, making good on my word to look out for his seven-year-old sister and his gran, and maybe one day when I was brave enough, I’d come out.
