Forever Trade Paperback; $12.00

On the surface, Lila Summers is flawless:
good looks, expensive clothes, and a big, beautiful smile.
 But a dark past and even darker secrets are threatening to bubble over her perfect façade. She'll do anything to keep the emptiness inside hidden—which leads her into situations that always end badly.
Whenever she hits bottom, there's only one person who's there to pull her out:
 Ethan Gregory.

Ethan set the rules a long time ago: he and Lila are just friends.
He doesn't do relationships.
 Although his tattooed, bad boy exterior is a far cry from Lila's pretty princess image, Ethan can't deny they have a deeper connection than he's used to.
 If he's not careful,
 he could be in serious danger of becoming attached-and he's learned the hard way that attachment only leads to heartbreak.

When Lila falls farther than she ever has before,
can Ethan continue to help as a friend?
Or is he also getting close to falling . . . for her?

~ Steph's Review ~

Lila portrays the fucked up   "poor little rich girl" beauty, who has a multitude of issues.

She is damaged goods.

Lila is on a dangerous path of self destruction.

With a quickness.

It seems no one even gives a shit


Ethan is the sexy, dark mysterious boy from the "wrong side of the tracks".

He is trying to battle demons of his own.

Ethan is  also batshit, cray~cray in love with his drug addicted girlfriend, London.

His life is on a fast track to nowhere.


 A life changing event occurs.

Ethan re-evaluates his life and decides he needs a fresh start.

So he moves.

Ethan and Lila are friends first and foremost,

Slowly that line becomes blurred....

An unbreakable bond is formed.

The flirty banter between Ethan and Lila is priceless.

Their romantic relationship is a slow build up.

I loved the anticipation!

Even though the sexual tension is undeniable, they take things super slow.

It is so refreshing....

If you are expecting to see a lot of Ella and Micha, you will be disappointed.
Their involvement in this book is very limited.

I'm good with it though...cause it's not their story ;)

All the focus is on Ethan and Lila
(As it should be, LOL)

I really enjoyed The Temptation of Lila and Ethan!

Don't miss their provoking journey to a happy ending with


** Struts across the living room ** Pumps fist in the air Judd Nelson Style**

(Hell yeah, cliffhangers are getting played the fuck out!)

Why do you think it’s so hard to be alone?”
 Lila asks, struggling to keep her eyes open as she gazes out at the night
sky through the cab window.
I’m turned sideways in the seat, with my knee up, so I’m facing her, even though she won’t look at me.
I lost count of how many shots we had hours ago and I can barely comprehend how we got to a cab
-stumbling, laughing, as she rubbed her hand up the front of my jeans.
 No, that can’t be right, can it?
“I think being alone is fan-fucking-tastic. . . well, maybe . . .sometimes . . .” I mumble, draping my arm on the back of the seat.
I stare at her for a moment, taking in her bare skin in the moonlight.
 I want to touch it. Lick it. Even bite it.
I’m bursting with sexual energy and I channel it to my foot on the floor, bouncing my knee.
There’s something different about tonight, something out of the ordinary,
this strange need to keep getting closer to Lila.
It could be the alcohol.
Or it could be something else,
but there’s no way my tequila-soaked mind is going to reach
any sort of answer.
Lila turns her head toward me, her pupils wide and shiny.
“Why are you staring at me like that?”
I keep tapping my foot on the floor, trying to think of a better answer than the first one that pops into my head, but I can’t find one.
“Because I’m thinking about you.”
She glances at the cab driver, a thirtyish guy wearing a baseball cap, and then her gaze lands back on me.
She sucks her lip into her teeth and I have to bounce my knee faster or I swear I’m going to fucking lose it.
 “Thinking what about me?”
she asks, looking wary, interested, and exhausted.
Don’t say it . . .
I was thinking about what it would be like to lick you . . . or bite you
 . . . either one really.”
It seems like I should regret it as soon as I say it, but regret is nowhere in my
reach at the moment.
Her breathing quickens and her voice comes out shockingly unsteady for someone who has sex so much.
 “Then do it.”
I blink, wondering if I heard her right through the massive amount of alcohol consuming my thoughts.
She holds my gaze steadily, even though she seems really nervous,
her voice trembling.
“Then bite me. Or lick me…whatever you want.”
