Miles Away by Addison Kline





Title: Miles Away
Author: Addison Kline
Genre: Mystery/Suspense 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The mafia couldn’t kill him. 
Prison couldn’t break him. 
Going home threatens to do both. 
 
Miles Capadonno has made some mistakes. Once part of the Capadonno crime family, he took the fall for another member of the crime family who once tried to kill him. At age 17, they put a contract out on Miles’ head for neglecting to complete a job. It was a matter of priority. Miles went to his dying mother’s side instead of picking up stolen merchandise from the ship yard. When you’re in with the Capadonno’s, whether you’re blood or sworn in, when they say jump you jump, when they say kill you kill. Ignoring an order is an offense of the highest degree. When they couldn’t kill him, they let Miles take the fall for another Capadonno family member. Now 15 years later, Miles is being released. He is ready to put his past behind him. There’s only one problem. There is still a contract on Miles’ head. This time, Miles is man enough to collect on owed debts, and he will not back down from the family that stabbed him in the back. 
 
Leticia “Letty” Alves is a saucy Latina and Miles’ old high school girlfriend. She was only 16 when Miles was arrested, but she hasn’t stopped wondering about the boy who charmed her all those years ago. Now working as a nurse for a home health agency, Letty’s priorities are to take care of herself and her 18 month old son, Gabriel. But when Miles walks back into her life everything changes, and suddenly, the family that she had avoided all her life, is now breathing down her neck looking for Miles. Letty is no damsel in distress, though. She’s a fighter, and she never backs down from a challenge. 
 
Sparks fly when Miles and Letty reunite. Can they put their differences aside to become one again? Can Miles set down his pride and accept the help and love that Letty can provide? Will Letty get over her resentment over being left so long ago when Miles was arrested? Only readers know for sure. 
 



Welcome to Carrion, New Jersey, where the Capadonno’s call the shots. Miles was away for so long, but now the prodigal son has returned. One thing is for sure, the family business isn’t ready for a bastard like him.

Elaine’s Review:
I could not put this book down, Mile and Letty were teens when Miles was set-up to take the fall for his father. He spent 17 years in jail and when he was released the first person he wanted to see was Letty but first he went to see his father and that is when he found Letty working for his father. This book was very emotional for me and I know that you all will love it. But to find out what happened, you need to read the book.
I highly recommend this book!!!!

Sunday
night
“Honey, you need to get laid,” Blaze bellowed before tossing
back another shot of tequila. “You know, by some outrageously hot guy who’s
gonna pin you against the wall and make you beg for mercy.”
I tossed my shot back before I answered her. “Not gonna
happen.”
“Please don’t tell me that Adrian was the last guy you got
horizontal with.” Blaze’s expression turned serious. “That dude’s the world’s
biggest douche.”
“Can’t argue with you there,” I told her, pouring another
shot. The last thing I wanted to do tonight was talk about Adrian. Or anyone,
for that matter.
I’d spent the entire day at the shop handling three
walk-ins, all of whom had wanted tattoos that took more time to prepare for
than to actually ink. And now, I wanted to sit back, get wasted, then pass out
and sleep until I felt better.
“How was the sex with him, anyway?”
“With who?” I asked, playing dumb.
Blaze narrowed her eyes at me. “Adrian.”
I didn’t miss a beat before I said, “Boring.”
“Really?” Blaze snorted. “I always heard rock stars had it
going on.”
“Yeah, well, I think rock stars are the ones who started
that rumor.”
Blaze grabbed her shot glass. “You’re probably right about
that.”
We downed two more shots, and our laughter continued until
the front door opened and in walked Gavin.
As soon as he stepped in the doorway, he stopped cold,
watching the two of us closely.
“Wussup, Gav?” Blaze greeted him, her words slurring. She
looked at me and grinned. “He’s an outrageously hot guy,” Blaze said in what
she probably assumed was a whisper but wasn’t.
“I definitely am,” he agreed, that mischievous smirk on his
face. “Is this party just gettin’ started? Or are we about to turn on the
decision-maker lights?” Gavin closed the front door behind him and tossed his
coat onto one of the barstools, his eyes never straying from us.
“The night’s still young,” Blaze informed him. “Can’t say
the same about you, though.”
Gavin continued to watch us. “How much have you had?”
“Not enough,” I admitted, reaching for the bottle to pour
more shots. “Now quit acting like an old man and come drink with us.”
“Hold up,” Blaze said, snatching the bottle out of my hand.
“Not until he pays the ten-dollar buy-in fee.”
“Buy-in?” A crease formed in Gavin’s forehead. “What the
hell’s a buy-in fee? This ain’t poker.”
Blaze pointed a finger in his direction. “I paid for the
booze, and you gotta buy in if you want some. Ten dollars.”
Gavin grabbed his wallet out of his back pocket, flipped it
open, and pulled out a five-dollar bill, then tossed it in Blaze’s lap.
“Dude, who’s the one who’s been drinkin’ tonight?” Blaze
slurred. “That ain’t ten bucks.”
“No, but you bought cheap booze, so there’s a fifty percent
discount.”
“Fine. Whatever.” Blaze snatched up the money and tucked it
into her bra.
I smiled at Gavin. “Grab another shot glass.”
After a quick detour to the kitchen, Gavin returned, setting
his glass down beside the other two, then dropping onto the couch beside Blaze.
With an unsteady hand, Blaze filled all three but ended up
with more on the glass table than in the shot glasses.
“What’re we drinking to?” Gavin asked.
“Hot guys nailing us to the wall,” Blaze blurted.
I rolled my eyes.
“Ain’t no guy nailing me to the wall,” Gavin grunted. “Hot
or otherwise.”
For whatever reason, I found that funny and ended up downing
my shot and nearly shooting it out of my nose.
“I’ve got a question,” Blaze said when the laughter died
down.
“No questions from you tonight,” I said immediately,
glancing over at Gavin.
As usual, Blaze ignored me. “I wanna know why the two of you
have never had sex.”
“Not a question,” Gavin grumbled.
“Okay, fine,” Blaze snapped. “Have the two of you ever had sex?”
“Eww. No,” Gavin and I said in unison.
“Are you fucking serious?” Blaze did not sound convinced.
I placed my shot glass on the table but waved Blaze off when
she started to pour me another. “Dead serious.”
“Why?” She looked genuinely confused.
“Because he’s not my type?”
Blaze’s eyes bounced back and forth between us before
landing on me. “But he’s hot.”
Yeah, well, I didn’t think so. “I don’t see him like that.”
Gavin was watching Blaze intently and I knew this wasn’t
going to be good. For the longest time, I’d gotten the impression that these
two had a thing for one another. Although Blaze pretended to be interested in
other guys—or maybe she wasn’t pretending—I got the feeling that if Gavin told
her to get naked, she’d do it in under three seconds flat.
“What about you two?” I asked, realizing the liquor was now
talking for me. “Why haven’t the two of you
hooked up?”
Gavin grabbed the bottle and poured another shot, but I
noticed he didn’t answer. I looked at Blaze.
“Y’all are best friends,” she said, as though that made some
kind of sense.
“So?”
“So, you and I are best friends,” Blaze added.
“Does that make us all best friends?” I asked, trying to do
the math in my head.
“No,” Gavin noted. “It means we’re not willing to sacrifice
that friendship.”

I believed in sex, once upon a time. And passion. But now my life as a single, divorced career girl living alone in New York City was all about work. I hadn’t had a date in years.

But then he came along . . . Alexandre Chevalier. The French CEO billionaire of HookedUp, the social media phenomenon that had taken the world by storm.

He was the most beautiful man I’d ever seen, and with eyes so green they seared into my soul.
Like a flash of lighting he struck me down . . . his touch was electric, and I knew my life was irrevocably changed. I’d never be the same again.

He awakened every fiber of my being, ignited every cell in my body.

And just when I thought things couldn’t be more perfect . . .
It all came crashing down.

******


I’d had it with all the crazy women in my life: the models, the movie stars, even my power-hungry sister and business partner. If you’d had a past like mine, you’d understand.

I just wanted a normal relationship with a normal woman . . .

And then I met her . . . Pearl Robinson.

She was perfect for me.
Or so I thought.
But I was in for a shocking surprise when I found out the truth . . .
Of who she really was.

HOOKED UP is a series of three, full-length novels averaging 300+ print pages each, to be released at intervals of one month and three weeks.

Excerpt

(Alexandre):

I was trying so hard to limit the complications in my life—e.g. limit the amount of women. Hone it down to just one.

I didn’t consider myself a “multi-tasker” by nature—not even when it came to women.

Quality, not quantity, was what I was aiming for.

But it was proving to be a tough call.

I was beginning to realize that my mantra of treating women well was backfiring on me.

You see I have a code:

• No woman is a “slut.” Ever. I do not use that word in my vocabulary. If a woman is sleeping around or being promiscuous it’s because she is searching: for love, for a good time, for a good orgasm, for an escape. Or maybe even for money. For whatever reason it may be, no man (or woman) has a right to judge her.

• Always call a woman after a date. Even if you never want to see her again. Why? Because it’s polite. Tell her you had a nice time. Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself, especially women.

• Don’t bullshit a woman. Don’t say, “I’ll call you,” if you don’t mean it. If you just want sex, make that clear from the beginning. Don’t make promises you can’t keep.

• Always walk her home at night, drive her home or call a cab. Pay for the cab yourself. Make sure she has unlocked her door before you drive away.

• Don’t invite yourself into her house. Like a vampire, let yourself be invited.

• Don’t fuck another man’s girl, no matter how tempting.

• The most important rule of all: When you fuck her, let her come first.

Manhattan Bound Series #2

By Juliette Braddock

Synopsis

Sweeping through the glitz and glamour of New York’s high society and the drama unfolding in the dressing rooms of

Broadway, Wrapped, by Juliet Braddock, continues the journey of a young theatrical

publicist’s foray into submission under the tutelage of a dashingly dark star of the stage. Wrapped—the much

anticipated sequel to Braddock’s critically acclaimed erotic romance Weakened—is the second book in

the Manhattan Bound series.

When Drew McKenzie presents Maxine Kirk with an ultimatum, challenging her to engage in his wanton brand of desire, she

readily embraces her awakening hunger for a lifestyle that defies her perceptions of romance.

Entranced by Drew’s charming appeal and by his sensual assault to her senses, Maxine clamors to discover every nuance of this

new relationship, ravenous to explore verboten fantasies that seem possible to fulfill only with Drew.

Along the way, he introduces her to his glamorous world of wealth and celebrity—where lavish galas and luxurious gifts are the

norm—and entices her into his realm of control with his tender mode of domination.

All the while, however, they both grapple with painful emotions brought about by the extenuating circumstances of their

separate pasts.

While Drew remains both confident and conscientious in his parlay of power over Maxine, his own tragic secret lurks in every

shadow upon his path in life. Behind the façade of his stage persona and the origin of old Manhattan society, he struggles to hide

the unforgiving reality he faced as a child.

Just as Maxine finds the strength to conquer her own torment with Drew’s patience and guidance leading her toward closure,

terrifying truths begin to chip away at the surface of his composure.

As the nightmarish details of Drew’s unimaginable life emerge, he fears that this new world he’d begun to build with Maxine will

crumble around him.

As Maxine finds herself embroiled in the battle to save Drew’s tortured soul from the atrocities that continue to stalk his every

move, two lost souls struggling to find comfort and completion converge.

However, as Drew opens his heart to Maxine’s unwavering support, he questions his own bravery, wondering if she’ll take a bow

and make her exit…or if she’ll stick around for the encore?
