A New Adult Contemporary series
with all the romance you’d expect, but
the killer—and lovers—that you don’t.
From the author—
Charlie’s first love is perfect. He’s kindhearted, the sex is great, and he only wants her despite the spotlight that brings him fame. Her life is wonderful, filled with purpose and cushioned by the man of her dreams.
Something is wrong here.
Her instincts are kicking in, telling her that Slade isn’t the man she thinks he is, but her heart is at war. She loves him, despite the attraction that sparks between her and Nate, the lonely, magnetic man who has popped into her life solely to piss her off. Slade loves her, despite the bright cameras and hot women and the ongoing pressure to succeed.
Doesn’t he love her?
Slade’s getting closer to Charlie’s new friend, a girl who blushes in his presence and changes face as soon as he leaves. Reagan seems sweet and everyone tells Charlie she’s adorable, cute…innocent as an angel. But Charlie’s starting to see her differently. Problem is, no one believes her.
Simple jealousy, or a warning of what’s to come?
Someone’s plotting a murder, and its execution hinges on Charlie’s choice. If she turns the wrong way, ignores the right signals, and chooses the wrong man, well…
The ultimate sin will result.
This third novella in the series begins with Week 6 and Charlie is having doubts about relationships, the first with her boyfriend, Slade, the second with her law school friend, Reagan, and the third with Nate, Reagan’s brother who happens to be a musician and a lawyer. In particular, Charlie is suspicious of Reagan’s intentions towards her and her interest in Slade and, as so often happens in romantic entanglements, Slade appears to be completely oblivious. Sometimes, it seems Charlie’s BFF, Lara, is the only one who sees the truth somewhat but she’s the voice of reason Charlie needs, at least at first. Too bad Charlie notices too many things about Nate when Lara has already laid claim.
Is Reagan merely trying to fit in with the group and suffering from hero worship of Charlie or is something much more dodgy going on? Is she truly smart and devious enough to fool Lara and Slade or is Charlie the only one who sees the true Reagan? Has Lara lost track of who she is? Has the trust between Charlie and Slade been irrevocably destroyed or will they find themselves again? Perhaps it’s Nate that poses the real hindrance to Charlie’s happiness but one thing is certain—life is headed in a very bad direction.
Murder is coming.

About the Author
Ketley Allison began her career by writing books as birthday presents for her friends (with her friend as the main character and opposite a super sexy lead, of course) before ending it in order to walk down a path she thought she was supposed to follow.
The writing bug never left her—and, in fact, would often bleed into the official papers she was supposed to write—so now Ketley’s putting down her suit and finally following her dream. While her friends are no longer the stars of her books, she still throws in bits and pieces of them into each and every one of her characters.
As a result, her books tend to focus a lot on friendships as well as love, because let’s be honest, friends are what really get you through—especially when your epic love turns into epic heartbreak.
