Not So Nice (Not So Series Book 2) by Misha Horne
“I do not have feelings for Damon Price.”
Not the kind he wants me to, anyway. Just because I agreed to stick around for now doesn’t mean I’m interested in more than just a good time. This is still purely physical, no matter what he thinks.
Yeah, I like how possessive he is. But I’d rather break his rules than follow them. And I like how demanding he is. But only when it comes to the bedroom. If he expects things to be different now, just because I maybe, sort of like him a little, he doesn’t get me as well as he claims to.
I know exactly what I need my life to be like to keep from going off the deep end. I need to be in charge. I need to be in control. Even when I’m on my knees. Maybe I had a moment of weakness and let things get personal. Maybe it even felt good. But I never wanted that before, and I’m not going to let him change me.
I don’t do boyfriends. I don’t date. And I sure as hell don’t sleep over. I’d like to see him try and make me.
“I do not have feelings for Josh Holloway.”
I shouldn’t, anyway. Not if I had any self respect. But apparently, when it comes to him, there’s a lot more I want than just a good time. Even if I’m not sure why.
Yeah, I like how obnoxious he is. Even if it makes me want to smack him. And I like how he’s up for anything, anytime, anywhere. As long as it’s physical. But if he thinks I’m going to let him keep me at arm’s length much longer, he’s sorely mistaken.
My last couple years have been hell. When I wasn’t barely hanging on, I was too numb to feel a damn thing. But now suddenly a kinky, mouthy brat practically falls into my lap, and I feel everything. Things I don’t know how to feel, and yeah, I’m a mess. But, I am not going back to being miserable.
I don’t do boyfriends. I don’t date. I sure as hell don’t beg guys to spend the night. Until now. I’m going to make him mine and make him love it. I’d like to see him try and stop me.
In the second book in the Not So series, Josh and Damon struggle to find a way to peel away some of the layers between them while still keeping their walls up and their hearts safe. Figuring out what they want from each other is almost as hard as figuring out what they need from themselves.
This 110,00 word romance features two damaged college guys who absolutely, positively are not boyfriends, a date that is not a date, some accidental kink discovery no one’s quite ready to talk about, belts, bookstores, brownies, and a heavy dose of angst as they both do their best to try and gut it out through holidays they’d really rather ignore without falling apart and needing each other. And, of course. So. Much. Spanking.
Please note, this book includes some scenes of characters still learning how to deal with lingering grief during the holidays.
**This book is NOT a standalone and this series must be read in order. Not So Nice is a direct sequel and picks up immediately where Not So Smart ends. Not So Nice ends on a soft cliffhanger. Josh and Damon’s story will continue in Not So Bad.
In honor of the December anniversary of Spoiled’s publication date, here’s a collection of both books (~75k words)!

Sanguine (The Fate of the Fallen #7) by R. Phoenix
In the epic conclusion of the Fate of the Fallen series, the stage has been set for a revolution. After the Council’s lack of reaction to the assassination of one of their own, the rebels grow bolder — and if they truly allow supes to join their ranks, they might be able to achieve the impossible. Hope has been rekindled, and nowhere has it been stronger than with the son of the former rebellion leader, Noah Franklin. Will he and Khaz throw in for more than a night, or will they choose to isolate themselves from what might still be a futile cause?
Reese’s allegiance to Elias Ivers has compromised his own desires to aid the rebellion, along with his disapproval of their “take no prisoners” approach. He and his claimed humans, Ashton and Leo, have different agendas, but can they come together in a time of need?
Newly-ascended Elder Elias Ivers has a target on his back — and it’s not only from sympathizers and rebels. Even those amongst his own ranks are loath to accept him, and he finds that taking control is not as easy as he’d thought. With his werewolf pet, Jace, at his side, can he show the Council what it truly is to rule?
Humans have fought for a decade to regain their freedom, and now, the time has come to reclaim it. The restlessness and strife among the vampires, witches, and werewolves who rule over humanity leaves them a unique opening… if they can only figure out how to take advantage of it.
