SWEET UGLY LIES by Nazarea Andrews
Releasing May 2, 2017 (Green County, #3)
Gabriel Delvin is three things: a problem, a liar and irresistible. Elijah Beasley’s known that for years. He knew before they slept together, and he knew when he walked away from Gabe, unwilling to put up with more lies. The problem is he keeps going back.
Elijah Beasley is three things: a cop, a f*cking problem, and Gabe’s. Gabriel Delvin’s known that for as long as he can remember. It’s why they fell into bed together, and why Gabriel stayed in Green County, when all sense said to get out.
But as the underbelly of crime in Green County comes boiling to the surface, Gabe is forced to chose between the man he's always loved and the family he can't help but be loyal to.
Love has never been the problem, for these two.
It just might not be enough, this time…
EXCERPT:I like running. Which is really ironic because I’m the one who never ran. I stayed here, got the degree and the good job and did what #foster mother’s# asked on weekends, filled up my time and my loneliness with all the shit that kept me from thinking too much. It was loud in my head, and I didn’t like the shit that happened there, when I slowed down enough to hear it. So I run. Every morning. Archer calls me a freak and Hazel smirks but occasionally she’ll run with me. Gabe curses me when I crawl out of his bed, tries to drag me back with wet kisses and obscene promises—and it works, sometimes. Gabe is very good at shutting up the voices in my head too. Except the days when I’m running from him. The problem with Gabe is that every time I ran, I came back. Gabe was my touchstone. He’s the one who never left, and it was as reassuring as it was terrifying. Hazel and Archer should be my touchstones. They’re the ones who wrapped themselves around me in the aftermath of the plane crash. Gabe was a laughing, lying joke. He took nothing serious, worked in his pajamas in his kitchen, lied almost as often as he opened his mouth, and fucked like a god. And he stayed. I should go to him. It’s been two months and six days since I left his bed, too angry at another lie to stay. And he’d let me, hadn’t explained or fast talked his way back into my good graces. He hadn’t gone out of his way to avoid me, but he didn’t engage either. No jokes. No smiles. No, “Heeeeey, Officer,” with a lewd smirk. Nothing. And I missed him. So I ran and I tried not to think about why my path took me past his house, or why it bothered me that his truck was missing. Tried to not think about how much I wanted to jog up and use the key in my sock to let myself in and crawl into his bed. I turned away and I kept running.

DIRTY SEXY SECRET Blurb:Even when you know better…. There are a million reasons why Hazel Campton is off limits: she’s a journalist. I’m a cop. Oh, and she’s my foster sister. My secret is I didn’t care. I haven’t stopped wanting her since I slept with her the night before she left. She’s trouble. Always has been. It’s hard to resist the thing you’ve always wanted… Growing up with Brandon Archer means I know him. Good. Bad. Everything in between. It’s just never mattered. My secret? That night. The one I stole, that’s kept me from Archer and Green County, for four years. Now I’m home, and nothing has changed. Except me. And not in the way that means a damn thing. Because I still want him. Everything can change with a knock at the door… Secrets. Everyone has them. Archer. Me. This town. Perfection only runs surface deep in Green County. When there’s a knock at me door, it’s a familiar face all covered in danger, and all those secrets we hide? They’re about to come tumbling out. The first in a sexy new series about Green County, and the people who serve there. Excerpt: Some people say you can't go home again. And that is a complete pile of bullshit. You can. It just won't be home. I should know. I did it. Green County doesn't change. It's been four years since I bolted and six months since I sucked up all my pride and ego and came back. And it still struck me as strange. Green Co was exactly the same. Same ridiculous festivals. Same leafy boulevards and parks filled with yoga moms and shrieking children. The same gossips line the coffee shop and eye me when I step in. They'll chatter my every move to Elijah later, cooing over him while warning that I was too skinny, too wild too rude too too too. They did the same thing in high school. Nothing changed in Green Co. If you want change you go somewhere else and you let it wrap you up tight and fight like hell to keep from being dragged back. Elijah gets pissy when I say shit like that. But Eli never left Green Co. Never felt the need to get out, to see and shape the world. He's always been more than happy to see and shape the County. And you know, he was right. He was good at it. I loved that he cared so much about Green Co. That he wanted to save the little Kansas county from itself. Someone had to. I flash the ladies a smile as I order two extra large iced coffees. Cindy grins at me, punching in the order and adding a slice of banana bread and her boxed lunch. “Long day, Hazel?” I smile, a half quirk of my lips that passes as a grin these days. “It’s a day ending in Y, Cins. Those are always long.” She gives me a smirk that tips toward worry. “You need a day off, sugar.” I make a face, and drop a twenty on the counter as I take my order. “I don’t even know what I’d do with that much free time.” She arches an eyebrow at me and I grin at her. “Hazel, my love,” Gabe says, sailing through the door of the coffee shop as I turn away from the counter. I swallow the grin before it twists into a smirk. “Gabriel,” I say, almost frosty and he laughs. Smug bastard. “We should carpool, love, if we’re going to keep meeting like this. Save the planet and all.” “Because you care so much about the damn planet,” I scoff, and he makes a face, all wounded dignity. The problem with that face is that I know Gabe. I've known him my whole life. Gabe is everything I ran away from when I left Green Co. Everything I wanted to forget. The smirk that means trouble and the too sharp eyes that sees right through my quick easy lies and watches with concern when I isolate. F*cking bastard is my neighbor. He's too damn close for comfort and too damn nosy for his own good. And coming from an investigative journalist, that's pretty f*cking nosy. ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
