Love and Other Puzzles

Eliza

Make it through detention.

Seemed like such a simple task. I almost made it too… right up until the end when I threw up in a trash can. At least no one was there to see it.

Or so I thought.

Little did I know, it was just the beginning.

>>> Miller
Stay under the radar.

Take care of your own problems, let other people take care of theirs.

As long as I kept to myself, no one asked questions.
Little did I know that Eliza Sullivan, the shy girl from calculus, would be the one to flip it all on its head.

>>> Eliza
Miller Cassidy. Brooding blue eyes. Adorable smirk. Definitely hiding something.

But, as it turned out, totally worth it.

If only he’d let me in.

>>> Miller
Eliza Sullivan. I’d never trusted anyone before she came along. But that all changed the day Eliza swept into
detention, and my life, with her sweet smile, quiet strength and love of riddles.

>>> Eliza
He asked me why I love puzzles, and I told him they’re one of the few things in life that always has an answer.

>>> Miller
She said we were a puzzle she just hadn’t figured out yet. I told her love is the one puzzle no one’s figured out.

>>> Eliza
But the question was, how far was I willing to go to protect him?

>> Miller
…and what would I do when it all came crashing down?

Goodnight

Life is pain.

That is the reality Goodie has had to accept since she was nine years old. A life in the shadows where she can stay in darkness is fine by her. That is until he tries to pull her into the light.

Powerful, arrogant, filthy-rich men are, quite frankly, a pain in Goodie’s arse. She’d much rather take an extraction job in the depths of a Colombian jungle than have to deal with their bullshit. But sometimes the money is just too good to turn down, and this time someone important, who is doing something Goodie believes in, needs to be kept safe. Luckily, Goodie is an expert at maintaining an invisible presence, enabling her to keep any interaction with the egomaniacs she protects to a minimum … until she meets Nick Chambers.

Nick doesn’t seem to understand invisible presence, appropriate employer–employee protocol, security precautions, following instructions, or in fact just leaving her the fuck alone. Everything about him, from his ability to laugh at their situation to the perpetual smile on his gorgeous face complete with goddamn dimple, drives Goodie insane, and for some reason makes her feel threatened. Fear is weakness, and if Goodie’s life has taught her anything it’s that you never, ever show weakness.

But Nick is determined, and he’s used to getting what he wants. He’s been effortlessly charming the women in his life since he was five years old, so he knows it won’t be long before he has Goodie right where he wants her. Only some things are so dark, so horrific, they can’t be dragged into the light. Some people are beyond redemption, and Goodnight may be one of them.

This book is a full-length, stand-alone contemporary romance of approximately 85,000 words with no cliffhanger and its own HEA.
