Book Blitz & Giveaway: If You Loved Me [Pebble Brook Falls 02] by Brianna Remus!


   I laughed to myself thinking back on those days. “One time, when we were really little—Callie Rose had barely started walking—he created an obstacle course in the yard and he and my mom raced us in wheelbarrows until they were both dog tired and my belly hurt from laughing so much.”
   Sarah’s eyes were glassy, smile serene as she said, “That sounds like a magical childhood.”
   “It was,” I rasped, wishing that I could relive some of those years when my parents were happy and all felt right in the world.
   We rode on for a few minutes in silence.
   “Did your parents do anything like that with you and your brother?” I asked, carefully.
   She huffed, “No. Their idea of fun was putting us in as many extra-curricular activities as possible. Most that neither one of us wanted to do.”
   It was wild that we came from two different worlds and somehow both experienced pain where our families were concerned. Before my parents left us, they’d gifted Callie Rose and me with love and acceptance. Sarah might have been born with a silver spoon in her mouth, but her childhood home seemed void of the most important thing.
   “I’m sorry they didn’t give you more.”
   She knew what more meant as she solemnly replied, “Me too.”
   Her gaze turned west where the sun was sinking behind the distant mountains. “You know, I’ve always wanted land like this. A place where I can run wild and free without anyone to tell me I’m doing something wrong. Somewhere I can just be me.”
   She was so beautiful at that moment, her body limned with the bright hue of the setting sun. If I knew better, I’d say she was an angel sent straight from the heavens. Breaking through every icy barrier I’d put around my heart with a simple look or smile.
   “You can have it all, Sarah,” I whispered and she turned to look at me.
   “What?” Her voice was soft.
   I wished I could capture it and hold onto it forever. How the loose strands of her hair fell in gentle curls framing her face. The cute bow shape her lips made when she was at ease. And how her eyes shone with curious wonder at all the world had to offer. I wanted to give her the world. I wanted to give her everything.
   “My land. My sunsets and sunrises. Anything I have that would make you smile. Hell, I’d give you the air in my lungs and the last beat of my heart if it meant I could die with you looking at me like that. You can have it all.”

My parents would lose their minds if they found out their precious daughter lost her virginity to the town’s notorious bad boy and ex-convict.

Ranger Adams might have been a dangerous pariah after he was released from prison, but he was the only man I wanted. And after I convinced him to take me on a date, I got exactly what my body…and heart desired.

I spent my entire life trying to get away from my parents’ overbearing grasp. They’ve tried to control every part of my life, even down to the man I was supposed to marry. That was the price of being born into one of the South’s richest families.

The second I had a chance to get away, I did. Ten years of pissing them off and making my dreams come true was worth the sacrifice. No fun. No relationships. And no sex.

My life had been all work until Ranger came back into town. Everyone whispered about what he’d done to land in prison. But I didn’t care.

He was rough around the edges, wild, and free.

And I wanted every bit of what he was willing to give me.

Author bio:

Brianna Remus is a Florida-based author who lives with her husband, three pups, and terrorizing cat. She started her writing journey in 2016 to ward off the woes of graduate school. The light-hearted hobby quickly turned into a passion filled dream that consistently distracts her from the real world.

When Brianna isn't working as a psychology resident or writing books, you can find her getting lost in the worlds created by others (through writing and movies), spending a day at the ocean, or taking a walk in the forest. She loves to spend her days outdoors surrounded by the beauties of nature.

A true Tolkien nerd, she also spends a lot of her time immersed in Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, as well as praying that Amazon doesn't completely fuck up the new LOTR series.
