The Arrangement is a series of short stories – no book is over 150 pages and they’re quick juicy reads.
Book 1 Synopsis:
FML is becoming Avery’s motto. Just when she doesn’t think things could get any worse, they do. When her car stalls out at a busy intersection and she gets out to check under the hood, a guy steals her car. Armed with a dress and a pair of Chucks, Avery runs after the thief. When a hot stranger offers to help, she can’t say no. That’s how Avery meets Sean Ferro, the totally sexy, totally damaged guy with more secrets than she has time for.
Avery doesn’t have time for anything anymore. Her is life falling apart and it’s not just the car. It’s everything, and it doesn’t matter how tightly she tries to hold on, there’s nothing left to hold on to. With the sudden death of her parents, it’s only a matter of months until Avery’s shot at college is gone, and she’s living in a cardboard box. Other students have their families to rely on when things get bad. Avery has no one.
But there’s one option, one incredibly sexy, morally devoid, option. If Avery takes a job as a call girl, one guy could save her. One client. One time. She just has to say yes.
Avery is a firecracker – she speaks her mind but is still grieving over the loss of both her parents. Trying to make her way through college and barely making it. When she meets Sean her life gets turned upside down. When she decides to be come a high class call girl, like her friend – she’s opening herself up to a whole new world. Because Avery is a little more innocent that she seems. But of course, that doesn’t stop her. When Sean keeps popping up in her life – both in and out of work – their relationship starts developing into something even now, in book 9 we can’t wrap our head around.
Sean has issues of his own – having lost his family he and Avery try to trudge through their bullshit to come up with some sort of semblance of a relationship – because no matter their issues? Neither one can be without the other – no matter how hard they try to deny it to one another.
The series is into book nine as of a few weeks ago – now we’re all impatiently waiting for Book 10 to find out WTF is going on!
Check out the series if you’re into MAJOR cliffhanger serials.
Book 2: Avery’s life is slipping between her fingers. Everything that she worked to achieve will be gone if she doesn’t take this job. The idea of being a call girl doesn’t appeal to Avery, but her first client does. Sean is too difficult to resist. This might be the opportunity to fix her finances and find love. She just has to have enough guts to go through with it.
Sex isn’t love, but it feels like it–that is until Sean bolts from the room. For a moment, everything seemed fine. Avery’s life didn’t feel so impossible. She got the guy and the money, but then everything shifts. The line between reality and fantasy gets hazy. It’s impossible to know if her feelings are genuine or just an illusion. To make matters worse something from Sean’s past surfaces. Devastated, Avery realizes that Sean isn’t the guy that she thought he was. Avery’s heart can’t take another loss and this time, it looks like she’s going to lose everything.
Avery finds out too late that her heart isn’t cut out to be a call girl. She’s too attracted to Sean. Avery doesn’t just want Sean’s body, she wants his heart. When he sent her away, Avery was devastated. Trying to pick up the pieces is hard, especially since she can’t get another job. Caught in an impossible position with her employer, everything hinges on making this next client happy, but things don’t go as they should. To make matters worse, Sean shows up at the worst time. Avery dreams of a chance to start over, to erase Sean from her life forever and leave her old life behind. But, it’s beginning to look more and more like just a dream.
Avery’s emotions are fried, but she doesn’t have to think twice about her BFFs Marty and Mel. They mean everything to her. They’re the family she doesn’t have. In a crisis, they’re the people to have by her side, and God knows this is a crisis. Friends like that are worth their weight in gold. If only things with Sean were so simple. Regret is something that is impossible to subdue. There are still things to be said, things to do. Life is too short to live in the past, but when Avery wakes up at the hospital she finds that her world has changed.
Just as Avery thinks she finds balance with her position as a call girl and her relationship with Sean, everything changes. The relationships that she has depended on are suddenly gone. After years of friendship, Avery is forced to face the cold hard truth–there is no place for feelings in this kind of business.
When Avery learns Sean’s dark secret, everything changes. His confession blindsides her. Sean has a shady past, she knew that from the beginning, but this is so much worse than she thought. There’s a dangerous side to Sean. It’s alluring and frightening at the same time. Avery has to decide if love can overcome anything or if she should protect her heart.
Nothing ever goes the way it should. Marty is barely a friend any more, and the roommate from hell is doing Naked Guy on my couch again. It’s bad enough that it feels like my life is coming apart at the seams. There’s one man that has held it together for the past few weeks, but things change. All it takes is a few words and everything shatters.
When Avery finds out that the cowboy who requested her services for the night is Marty, things take an unexpected turn. If Avery declines her friend, she’ll be in trouble with Miss Black, but if she accepts–this could mean a new, normal relationship and saying farewell to Sean forever.
Impatiently waiting for book 10!
