ABOUT SOAR (The Empire Chronicles #1):
In the city that never sleeps the Chronicles continue…Goodreads | Amazon | B&N
Serving coffee is temporary, just like Casey's year off from school. She’s going to come up with a plan to stay in New York City and go back to college, and that plan does not involve dating a paranormal creature—let alone two.
Running the supernatural society of New York is not as fun as it sounds, especially when you still have to answer to your ex-girlfriend’s fiancé. Toby doesn’t mean to bring Casey into the chaos of his life, but he can't resist the girl who makes him smile when he thought no one else ever could.
Jared's in New York checking out a security risk for his best friend, the king. He plans to return to New Orleans quickly, but not if it means losing his chance with the brunette who pretends she wants nothing to do with him.
In over her head with a bunch of winged creatures who most definitely are not angels, Casey has to figure out who to trust with her life and maybe her heart.
“You’ve made a lot of judgments about me.” He moved in front of me, his hips stopping only inches from mine.
“And you haven’t made any judgments about me?”
“Only ones I know are true.”
“Is that so?” I knew I sounded flirtatious, and I couldn’t help it.
“What are they?”
“You like to pretend you’re a good girl, but you’re not.”
I cough-choked. “Where’d you get that idea?”
“I can just tell. Like right now, the way you’re responding to me. You like how close I am, but if we were in broad daylight, you’d be pushing me away.”
“I’m not pushing you away now.”
“No. You’re not.” His eyes locked with mine, and it was like he could see right into my mind.
“Is this how you usually pick up your prey?”
“My prey?” He smiled. “I don’t generally consider women to be prey.”
“First you say I don’t chase, and now you say I view girls as prey. Which one is it?”
“A hunter doesn’t always run after his mark. Sometimes he sits and waits.”
“Oh yeah? So now you’re telling me I set traps?”
“You do. You know how to lure girls in, and you know exactly the moment when there’s no turning back.”
“Are you in that moment now?” He leaned close to me, half an inch more and our faces would have been touching.
“No.” I touched the wall behind me, needing to remind myself of where and what I was doing.
“That’s too bad.” His lips skimmed mine.
“Why is it too bad?” A shiver ran through me.
“Because I was thinking we could make the best of the situation.”
“You can stop trying to distract me.” I needed him to stop before I did something stupid. But for some reason, letting Jared kiss me didn’t seem like a mistake—it seemed perfect.
“Distract you? Who said I was trying to distract you?”
“I’d do a much better job if I was trying to distract you.”
“Want to see?”
I nodded. My head told me not to, but my body said something else entirely.
