Blurb from Goodreads:

Have you ever been so angry that hitting things felt good? 

Or so numb that you actually felt high? 

The past few years have been like that for me. 

Traveling between fury and indifference with no stops in between.
 

Some people hate me for it, while others are scared of me. 

But none of them can hurt me, because I don't care about anything or anyone.
 

Except Tatum.
 

I love her so much that I hate her. 

We used to be friends, but I found out that I couldn't trust her or anyone else.
 

So I hurt her.  

I pushed her away.
 

But I still need her. 

The sight of her centers me, and I can pool all of my anger into her. 

Engaging her, challenging her, bullying her...they are my food, my air, and the last part of me that feels anything human.
 

But she left. 

She went to France for a year, and came back a different girl.
 

Now, when I push, she pushes back.

Release date: 31st December 2013

Blurb from Goodreads:

Commitment. 

That’s what I really want from Colin. 

Ever since my brother, Danny, died in Iraq, Colin’s done so much to help me, including giving me a job at his popular restaurant so I can leave my crappy waitressing job at the strip joint. 

But lying in bed with him every night to comfort him from his horrible nightmares isn’t enough anymore. 

I know he feels guilty about Danny’s death, about not going to Iraq, but I can’t keep living this double life. 
 

I love him desperately, but he’s got so many demons, and if he can’t open up to me now, then he’ll never be the real partner I need him to be. 

I gave him a month, and now I’m out of here. 

If he truly loves me like he says, he knows where to find me.
