The Wanderers is the first in the series with the next two not far behind. I enjoyed writing this series and can't wait to share the next books with everyone.
• Here's a little sneak peek:
As much as I wanted to stay this way forever, I couldn't, and the longer Tristan held me, the more comfortable I became in his arms. I couldn't risk myself falling harder for Tristan more than I already have. I knew we would never work and it was better not to even get involved. I found my strength and forced myself to get up. I managed to get myself into a sitting position and then I swung my legs over to the other side so I could get up. "Where are you going?" Tristan complained.
"I have stuff to do."
"No you don't," he said grabbing me again and pulling me back down.
"Tristan," I complained pushing him back.
"What could be more pressing than staying here and snuggling with me?"
"Everything," I said.
"Just for that I'm not letting you go," he said wrapping his arms and legs around me.
I pushed and pulled with all my might, but he wouldn't budge. "Okay seriously?" The more I struggled the more he laughed. "It's not funny jerk! Let me go."
Eventually he loosened his legs allowing me to break free. I believe he only did because I threatened to punch him in the nuts if he didn't. He still had his arms around me though. I slipped my one out by pinching him. "Ow Ella, you're so abusive," he whined.
"That's what you get," I said sticking my tongue out like any mature adult would. I stood up to finally get some breathing room.
"That's it. I had enough of your abuse," Tristan said wrapping his arm around my waist and pulling me back down on the bed. I screamed as he tackled me. We wrestled back and forth laughing. I found his tickle spot giving me the advantage, but he was fast and kept getting the upper hand. He had me pinned with my arms above my head and his body pressing down on mine. I stopped resisting, but he didn't let go. He was panting and smiling over his victory. He stared deep into my eyes making my heart race.
This is it, I thought.
He's going to kiss me.
And I won't be able to stop him.
When we're this close, it's harder to fight. I waited for him to make his move and braced myself when he tilted his head slightly and leaned in. "Ella," he whispered.
"Yes?" I asked breathless.
"Will you go out with me?"
"What?" I said caught unaware.
"On a date, you know dinner and a movie type thing."
"Just one date Ella, one date. What's it going to hurt?"
