Chet Boston has everything he wants—except love.
Raised as an affluent only child, Chet used his popularity and status to his advantage. While attending Indiana University Bloomington, he falls into the party scene. His drugs of choice? Alcohol, cocaine—and women. He is honest with his agenda. That way no one gets hurt, and he gets what he wants.

His playboy lifestyle comes to an end when he meets Alexis Cross.
Although he enjoys his revolving door of women, when he meets Alexis at a charity dinner, all of that changes. But when she leaves him for a co-worker in California, he trashes any future possibility for romance and vows to get on with his life.

Blood is thicker than water—or so they say.
When Chet discovers he has an older half-sister, Chantelle, life changes yet again. She wasn’t raised with his silver spoon, and it soon becomes clear she is after one thing—money. Chantelle digs up dirt to blackmail him into being a puppet master, and forces him to help her land a billionaire husband.

What he didn’t expect was to meet Jesse McCoy—the billionaire’s daughter.
Chet and Jesse’s fast and furious romance leaves him pinned, and it isn’t long before his life spirals out of control. But there’s one more curveball he didn’t see coming…

And it will change his life forever.

EXCERPT

The party’s in full swing when we get there around nine. The ladies’ clothes are falling off. Oh yeah, I should be able to score tonight. I see a few women I don’t know, so I make sure to introduce myself to them.
There is this tall female with almost black hair, and her skin is really light, like she’s never been out in the sun. Her legs go on for miles. I would love to see those up in the air.

I walk over to her. She is talking to her friend, who seems to be sober. She is not bad looking, either. She’s really curvy with strawberry blonde hair. I could see myself getting some of that too.

“Hi, ladies. New on campus?” I ask as sweet as I can. The dark headed hottie doesn’t give me the time of day. Whatever, snob.

“Hey. Yes. We just moved here from Colorado. Not used to this kind of party, though. My teammates told me it would be good for me, but I feel really out of place. Maybe we’ll catch you around.” She smiles sweetly, grabs her friend’s arm, and drags her off.

Whatever. I’m sure there are more ladies around here to hook up with. I see some of my friends and head over to talk to them before they get too shit faced. The guys are talking about how the defense needs to step up their games if they are going to win their opening football game of the season. They say hey to me and go back to their conversation.

About the author:
A. Gorman was born and raised in a small community in Central Indiana. She left the slow moving life of the country for the fast-paced city life. After spending twelve years in the city and becoming a mother to two wild and crazy kids, she chose to move back to the peace and quiet of the country after marrying the man of her dreams and gaining three more children.

As an avid reader, A. never set out to be an author since she’s a full-time editor for several incredible authors. However, after editing one day, a voice started talking to her and talking and talking. She decided to sit down and write what she had to say, and it turned out she had a lot to say. Then that one voice turned to two, and another story came to life. Not believing that anything she was writing was publishable, she asked a few friends to critique her manuscript…and now she’s the proud author of the Their Sins series, with several more series and standalones planned.

When she’s not corralling their five kids and two dogs or out in their garden, you can find her at her desk editing or writing her next novel with a cup of coffee and classical music cranked up on her iPad. While she loves reading, A. is addicted to all things British, coffee, and gummy bears—in no particular order.
