P.S. BOTH can be read as standalones, but book #2 features a character from book #1, so it’s best read in order for the “full effect”.
Here’s a bit from the blurb:
Walking away from Matt Moreno was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Lying to him was a close second, but for his safety, I had no other choice. I was undercover, working to put some nasty people behind bars. But when Matt nearly recognizes me on Lincoln Road a year later, all those very real feelings come rushing back. Now that my assignment’s almost over, will he understand why I lied? Why I had to leave? Most important, can he ever forgive me?
BUT!!! The author posted this, to assure her readers (due to some incorrect speculation about this hero):
“I’ll go ahead and tell you this about MAKE ME STAY (panic #2):
Matt isn’t a manwhore! You may think he is because of book 1. But he’s not. He doesn’t cheat on her. There’s not even a side glance at another woman. He doesn’t even think of another woman after he’s met “her”. So…don’t avoid MMS because you think you know what’s going to happen. I assure you…you don’t! “
AND!!!! It now has a book cover.
And I am here to *squeeeeeee* over it. Oh. And reveal it to you!
Take a look at this awesomeness:
