Bach lives his life with honesty and without restraints, happy to be known as a sexy as all hell, unapologetic asshole.
When he drinks, he drinks hard.
When he wants a woman, he makes sure she knows it.
When he opens his mouth, it’s either to piss someone off or to turn someone on.
You can normally find him with one hand on a bottle and one hand on a woman, trying to forget his past.
Harley Evans is ta twenty-one-year-old year old college student. She’s a good girl who fell hard for Dylan, who’d promised her forever. But Dylan, Bach’s best buddy, lied.
He enlisted in the Army, crushing Harley with equal parts anger and sadness. She’d already lost her father to that choice. Heartbroken, she falls back into depression.
Stuck in Crystal Gulf all summer with little to do, Harley needs a distraction. Enter Bach, sexy as f*#ck distraction, ready and willing.
Dylan’s not all bad though. Before he left, he asked Bach to watch out for Harley, knowing she’d never go for a guy like Bach. She’s too good for him. Too good for anyone.
But Dylan was wrong. He never should have left them together. Bach is there to pick up the pieces Dylan left behind. Soon pieces aren’t enough. He wants more, needs more Harley.
DESTROY ME is dark, sexy, heartbreaking, and intoxicating.

I fall back and stare at the sky.
I was only seven.
I can’t be here anymore. I can’t see, or think, or feel anything that doesn’t revolve around that day …
My brain checks in sporadically. I’m in my car, on the road, there’s honking, and then stairs. Then it’s right back at the shed, burning me, smothering me with memories.
I don’t even know how I got here. But I’m here.
Her stairs are so long, I feel like it takes me an hour to crawl up them. Probably because I’m on my hands and knees. I fall against her door and hit it with my fist. When she opens her door the light from inside halos her.
I sag against the railing and watch the angel come for me.
“Oh, Bach. What’s wrong?” her soft angelic voice asks.
“Harley,” my sin tainted worthless voice begs. My heart squeezes in my chest. It wants—no, it needs—her good so damn bad. The bad hurts.
When I walk into a book store I feel at home. When I smell the pages of a brand new book things make sense. When I read I am who I always wanted to be. I read to escape and I write so others can as well. My family, my actress dog Bella, coffee, and a steamy love story are a few of my most precious things. My Sweet Demise is my debut new-adult contemporary romance novel.
