the truth has a way of coming out - Better When It Hurts (Stripped #2) by Skye Warren

18+ 5 Angsty Love-versus-Hate Stars! Better When It Hurts sucked me in hook, line, and sinker within the first few pages.” – Allison, The Reading Escapade Book Blog
“There’s one thing I can say with certainty, Skye Warren never fails to deliver a heartfelt, slightly dark, I can’t stop turning the pages story. This one is no different.” – Di, Twisted Sisters


What Colin doesn’t know can’t hurt him.

At least that’s what I tell myself about the secrets I keep. I don’t have a choice, not if I want to keep my daughter safe. And keep him Colin safe too. There are enemies in the shadows waiting to strike from all sides. I’m holding them out with my bare hands, but it’s hard not to get crushed in the process.

And the truth has a way of coming out.

If I’m not careful, the past I’ve been working so hard to hide, the pain I’ve been fighting so long to outrun, will wipe out the man I love.

Romance vs Suspense

Thank you for having me!

I’m here to share my new release, Better When It Hurts, which is a dirty hot forbidden romance about a foster brother who’s back for revenge. Fair warning: Blue is a cruel bastard and a dirty talker <3

It’s sort of inevitable that my books contain suspense. Even if I set out to write something sexy and emotional, there’s usually some form of danger. I think because my books are about survival—about emotional survival. And so the physical element can mirror that, can augment it.

Plus I tend to write in gritty settings, where danger would be a natural occurrence. The Stripped series takes place in the Grand, which is an old theatre that’s been turned into a strip club. There’s fading damask wallpaper and cloudy brass light fixtures. There’s bricks crumbling and a gorgeous round fountain with no water in the cobblestone drive. It’s beautiful and ominous.

Blue is the head bouncer at the club, and Lola is one of the strippers.
It just begs for a romance, doesn’t it?
I thought so, and when you read it, I hope you’ll agree.

A forbidden romance about pain that binds us together…

Five years ago we lived in the same house. He was the ultimate bad boy.
And my foster brother.

Now he’s back. Tougher, harder, meaner. All of it aimed at me, because I was the one who sent him away. It’s payback time. He wants his pound of flesh, and I am helpless to say no.
