Ashlynn Ellis’ life was finally coming together. After a troubled childhood she had control of her life just the way she wanted.  She had her inner circle of trust consisting of McKoy and Grace who were her lifelong girlfriends which allowed her to keep the boundaries set. But an end-of-life journey for her estranged mother shakes Ashlynn’s distrusting self to the core, which unknowingly leads her to cross paths with her soulmate, Cooper Brooks. Ashlynn has never had a trusting man in her life nor did she want one. She has seen domestic abuse on the front line and can not let these memories go.

Cooper Brooks is a police officer and has seen domestic violence at its worse. As a child with a hard upbringing, he commits himself to his career. He does not have time in his life for a woman and he doesn’t care to look for one; that is until he meets Ashlynn Ellis. Ashlynn and Cooper meet by what could only be orchestrated by a higher power, and for the first times in both their lives realize love is something they are missing. 

Will Ashlynn trust Cooper and let her guard down for this man that worships her? Can Cooper convince her to trust him and embrace the love he wants to give her? Will Ashlynn lose her internal battle and let Cooper in? When someone from her past comes back to destroy her can she protect Cooper, the love of her life, before it’s too late to protect herself?  This a passionate love story between two people who were brought together by fate as soul mates made for each other. Is their destiny really meant to spend the rest of their lives together?

Cooper finally whispered to me as we are both breathing so heavy “I want you Ash, really bad.”
 
 I shook my head yes and he moved my thong to the side.  He started to touch me and oh my………. He started to rub my sensitive spot and I thought I might come just from his touch. What the hell am I going to do with him in me?
 
“You’re so wet for me Ashlynn, do you want me?”
 
“Hell yes, I want you. Can’t you tell?”
 
I reached for his button and saw he had already undone it and the zipper. When did he do that? Who the hell cares? He had on no underwear. I grabbed onto his manhood and guided him in me. I sat on him and moved slowly to get him into me all the way. He felt amazing and like how he was made for me. I stretched just enough for him. Ever since the first time we had made love, I craved his touch and the feeling of him being in me, completing me.
“You’re so tight, you feel so good, I hope I can last. I want you to be pleased first. If I start to hurt you I’ll stop. Don’t be shy with telling me baby. I plan on
making love to you more times than we can count, so I am not going to get greedy.”

excerpt

I just wanted to get inside and forget about all of them but my mouth started spilling words before my brain had a chance to tell it to shut the hell up.

“I’m sorry, I don’t know why I keep allowing myself to be bothered by him. Part of me still pines for him, hoping that he will see how miserable we are without each other and take me back. And the other part says fuck him, I don’t need him. I have this perfectly hot man in my life now that I know I could really fall in.. I mean, we have a great friendship from all of this and if this thing with Trevor had never happened you wouldn’t be in my life so I should really be thinking him or at the very least sending him a fruit cak..”

Justin’s mouth came crashing down on mine making my ramble crumble and die on my lips. I hadn’t been kissed in a really, really long time so it might have taken me a minute to realize that I was actually being kissed. No, not kissed, consumed. His lips were smooth and softer than I thought they would be as he pressed harder against my mouth, I have no idea what overcame me but I didn’t push him away. Nope, my insane side welcomed it by pulling him closer and moving my mouth fervently against his as he hands came up to cup the side of my face, locking me in place. I couldn’t move if I wanted to and with the way he was kissing me, I didn’t want to move. Ever.

He applied just the smallest amount of pressure causing me to open like a flower and he wasted no time in slipping his tongue inside to have a slow dance with mine. His tongue caressed mine at the same time as he was sucking on it gently then back to caressing it. Caress then suck, it was a combination I was not used to but instantly became addicted to. You know that movie about the girl who had never been kissed, this was that never been kissed kiss. This kiss was habit forming the thing of addictions and AA meetings. This kiss was everything.

With a final tug on my bottom lip, it ended and was left with a feeling in a state of undescribed bliss.

“Another talent, calming down crazy rambling women. You should see me in hostage negotiations.” He smirked showing one of his dimples. I was at a loss for words, dumfounded. The dumb had found me. I know that we just crossed some sort of line but I couldn’t translate that to my lips.

He leant in a kissed the corner of my mouth before making the other dimple appear in full on smile.

“Relax Bell, we’re still friends, nothing has changed. I just wanted to shut you up. I’ll call you later.” And with that he hopped in his car and drove away, leaving me still standing there probably catching flies with my mouth open, wondering what the hell just happened.

What the hell did he mean nothing has changed? Umm, hello, everything had just changed. At least to me.

Owen Lawry is days away from leaving Gansett Island to attend the trial of his father, who is charged with assaulting his mother almost a year ago. He has spent his entire adult life trying to outrun his violent past, but the upcoming showdown with the father he hasn’t seen in more than a decade has him spending far more time in the past than in the present. His biggest challenge is convincing his pregnant fiancée, Laura McCarthy, to sit out the trip. The last thing he wants is to expose the woman he loves to the pain of his past.Laura is determined to stand by Owen’s side throughout the trial and into the life they have planned together. The trial and her final divorce papers are the only things standing between them and the wedding they have looked forward to all year. Can she convince Owen to let her in and allow her to help him through this difficult time? And what will become of the man she loves if his father walks free?

As Owen and Laura prepare for the emotional battle with his father, his mother, Sarah, finally comes clean about her violent marriage with Charlie Grandchamp, the man who has been her friend and companion for months now. How will Charlie react to hearing Sarah’s secrets, and will their relationship move forward now that he finally knows the truth about why she can’t bear to let him touch her?

Catch up with all your favorite Gansett Island characters from the past ten and a half books and meet several new characters, including some McCarthy cousins on the island for Laura and Owen’s wedding, who will be featured in future books.

This newest addition to the McCarthy’s series is awesome! I always love a visit to Gansett Island and this was no disappointment. This book focuses mainly on Owen & Laura and the upcoming trail for Owen’s father along with plans for their wedding. Even though they are the main focus, we get to visit with most all of the island’s characters in some way, some more than others. There is a big surprise in this story for the McCarthy family that I hope sets up more stories for us in the future.  We also get two surprise weddings in addition to Owen & Laura’s.  More weddings are planned and engagements occurring.  Lots of love on the island in this book!  Five stars for this story!  Five stars for all of the McCarthy’s Series!  Looking forward to more visits to the island in the future…hoping that some future stories began in this book!

Author’s Note

Welcome to Gansett After Dark, book 11 in the McCarthys of Gansett Island Series! When I first wrote Maid for Love back in 2010, I couldn’t imagine a time when I’d be talking about the eleventh book in the series that began with that first story, but here we are! Three years after Maid for Love hit the e-book shelves, readers are still clamoring for more of the McCarthys, and I still look forward to every minute I get to spend on Gansett Island. It’s a match made in writer’s heaven!In the McCarthy Reader Group on Facebook, we spent a lot of time talking about Gansett After Dark and batting around ideas for everything from sexy nights with each couple to a sex toy party hosted by Tiffany, which is something I’d still like to do sometime. While many of the ideas were amusing and fun to think about, when it came time to write the book, Owen’s story was the one that called to me the most. He’s come so far from his old life and is happily settled with Laura. Now he must confront the past before he can move on to the happy future he deserves. Putting his father’s trial at the center of this book also gave me the opportunity to move several other stories forward, namely that of Charlie and Sarah, a couple that has interested me from the day they first met.Rest assured, you can count on plenty of sizzle between some of our favorite couples and a glimpse at what everyone is up to as we move forward into the next phase in this series. Oh and did I mention you might get more than just one wedding in this book?! And look for a blockbuster development in the lives of Big Mac and Linda McCarthy that will ricochet through their entire family.

As always, thank you for coming along on this ride with me. I’m so happy to be continuing to write this series we’ve all come to love so much.
