Rock stars break hearts

It’s a lesson Eden Taylor just learned the hard way. Leaving town to stay with her brother should have been the perfect way to escape the pain of her breakup, but she wasn’t expecting to end up sharing the house with her brother’s best friend—Fractured’s lead guitarist, Tex McLain.
She wasn’t expecting to notice how sexy he is… or to start craving his touch.
And she absolutely wasn’t expecting to forget the lesson she only just learned...

Tex is getting tired of the casual hookups that come with the rock star lifestyle—been there, done plenty of that. He’s looking for someone he feels a connection with—a spark.
Just his luck when he finally feels it, it’s with the one woman he can’t have.
Eden’s too young for him—too bright eyed and full of dreams. Not to mention his best friend’s little sister.
He needs to stay away...

Tension simmers, lines are crossed, and soon there’s no turning back.
But it’s true that rock stars break hearts.’s their own.

Tex turned to Noah, who was sitting next to him, a drink in one hand and the other unconsciously tapping out the rhythm of the music on his thigh. “So, are you okay now with Eden staying on her own while you’re gone?”

Noah shrugged. “There’s not much I can do about it. She doesn’t want to go home, and it’s not as if I’m going to kick her out. But I worry about her, you know?”

“What exactly is it you’re worried about? The chances of anyone actually breaking into your house are pretty slim.”

Noah glanced over at where the two women were dancing. “I don’t want her on her own for so long, maybe getting lonely. I don’t think she’d do something stupid like give the ex-douche a call, but she’s hurting at the moment, and being hurt and lonely can make you do crazy things.”

“That doesn’t sound like something Eden would do, though. She doesn’t come across as the type of person to let someone walk all over her, no matter how hurt and lonely she is.”

“She’s not, normally, but I think what happened affected her more than she’s letting on; she’s been a bit off since she arrived.” Noah sighed. “Although I’ve started to realize exactly how much I don’t know about my little sister now. She was ten the last time we lived together, and I’m not a hundred percent sure how to handle grown up Eden. I realize I need to give her space, but how much?” His mouth tightened, and he nudged Tex, jerking his chin at the dance floor. “See what I mean? She’s not acting like herself.”

Tex frowned over at Eden. She was on her own now, Lexie having been distracted by Connor, who’d stalked over there and dragged her into a dark corner. Eden didn’t seem worried, her eyes closing as she tilted her head backward, her waves of blonde hair tumbling over her shoulders and down her back as she moved her body sinuously to the music. She looked beautiful—really fucking beautiful—and it was clear the men surrounding her like sharks thought so too.

As they watched, one of them decided to take a shot, stepping in close behind her and wrapping his arms around her waist. Tex could almost feel Noah’s tension vibrating in the air between them and his own muscles tightened in response. They both waited to see if she’d get rid of the man herself, but instead, she leaned back into him, eyes still closed, the corners of her lush mouth tipping up in a smile.

Anger flared in Tex’s chest as the guy’s hands went to her hips, then started sliding downward toward the hem of her short skirt, and without a word being said, both he and Noah were in motion. A few strides and they were at Eden’s side, Noah grabbing the man’s hand and pulling him away at the same time Tex caught her around the waist and hauled her against him.

Eden gasped; eyes wide as she stared up at him in confusion. “Tex?”

He frowned down at her as Noah dealt with the guy who’d been pawing at her. For a second, it appeared as if the man was going to get belligerent, before recognition lit up his face when he realized who it was that had grabbed him. “Holy shit, you’re Noah Taylor!” His eyes shifted to Tex, widening further. “And you’re Tex McLain!” When his gaze dropped to where Tex had Eden pressed against his chest, he grimaced. “Sorry man, I didn’t know she was yours.”

Eden tensed in his arms, but Tex didn’t correct the guy. If it kept the goddamn sharks away, he was happy enough for them to think whatever the hell they wanted.

Sales Blitz: Hard Hart by Whitley Cox

Title: Hard Hart
Series: The Harty Boys #1
Author: Whitley Cox
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Romance Suspense
Release Date: October 11, 2018

It’ll take a tough woman to win this Hard Hart…

Krista Matthews, a hard-headed, hard-fighting rookie cop, is determined to prove herself on the force. It’s not just a man’s world anymore and she'll show them all she’s up to the challenge, even if it means putting up with the advances from her lecherous mentor, Myles Slade. However, Brock is even more stubborn than she is, he’s all male, all alpha—and whether she likes it or not he’s made keeping her safe his number one priority. He doesn't realize she doesn't need protection; she can take of herself and then some.

Brock Hart, bodyguard and retired special operative, has never known anyone like Krista. Ever since their first meeting, when she pulled him over for speeding, he’s been drawn to her. She infuriates him, challenges him, and has gotten under his skin in a way no woman ever has. He’s kept people at arm’s length all his life for good reason, but Krista won’t stand for it. She wants to know everything about him, and that puts him on edge. But one drunken night together changes everything. Their worlds are rocked, and Brock’s quiet, introverted life is threatened forever. Which may be exactly what he needs.


“Once again Whitley Cox connects two unlikely characters into a love story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Krista and Brock may be instantly connected by one night of drunk passion but that does not stop the two very different people from making the most of their time together. Then throw in the danger that seems to follow Krista and makes the introvert Brock open not just his home but also his heart and you have an emotional read that had more twists and turns than a roller coaster. This is one ride that I did not want to get off of. With a storyline that had me from the opening pages and the heart warming characters you could not help but fall in love with them, this is a book you do not want to miss.” (Nicki ~The Overflowing Bookcase ~ Goodreads Reviewer)
“Wow, what a book! It was an absolutely fantastic and enjoyable series starter! This story had me hooked from the beginning and kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. It is well written with a well-developed plot, moves along at a brisk pace and is quite the page turner. The violent suspense, action, witty banter, and talk of sexual abuse had my heart racing. The characters are amazing and perfect; the side characters also add to the high level of excitement. The intimacy between Brock and Krista is smoking hot and intense. This book is guaranteed to knock your socks off. It could not have been better in my opinion. I am looking forward to reading book 2.” (Debra Richardson ~ Goodreads Reviewer)
“I am a big Whitley Cox fan. I don't care what she is writing about, all I know is that I want to read it.
She has an ability to write two completely different characters and mesh their lives together ending up with the perfect couple.
Brock and Krista should probably never have met, let alone become a couple. But even though what they have together is so very far from smooth sailing, I liked how they worked together to be with one another.
There is plenty going on in this story. I couldn't wait to read two certain people meet their fate.
Brilliantly written as always and I can't wait to read Whitley's next book.” (Sharon Jones ~ Goodreads Reviewer)

She pushed her backside into his growing erection and giggled when he groaned, bucking into her.

He bent her over, pulling her pajama pants and underwear down in the process. She kicked out of her pants and then stood there, her fingers kneading the soft leather of the couch as Brock’s capable hands massaged and caressed her craving backside.

Was it too early to ask him to spank her? She’d have to put a pin in that and see. Because one thing for sure, Krista liked it a little rough. Liked a little pain with her pleasure.

He gripped both her hips, positioned himself behind her, and then drove home. She let out a soft grunt from the impact, but damn if it didn’t feel good. She loved this position, which was ironic given how submissive it was and how in control she liked to be. But they wouldn’t finish like this. This was just the beginning. She squeezed her muscles around him as he pushed into her.

She needed this.

God, how she’d needed this.

Her vibrator just wasn’t cutting it these days. And now, after another taste of Brock Hart, she wasn’t sure it ever would.

Lost in the moment, she reveled in the feeling of Brock deep inside her, filling her, fulfilling her. The spank came out of nowhere, startling the daylights out of her. She yelped and then fell face first into the couch, her arms flying out from under her and causing Brock to slip out.

“You okay?” he asked, helping her up.

She looked back at him and smiled. “Yes. Again.”

Triumph, wicked and primal, glimmered in his green eyes. “Sorry, I should have asked first.”

She shook her head. “No. I want more. Harder.” She assumed the position and he was back inside her in seconds. Three hard, lightning-quick smacks had her panting and pushing into his palm, grinding her backside up to reach his pelvis. Her pussy dripped down her thighs, and her legs shook from his power.

He was having a hard time holding on. His grunts and wavering patterns said he was riding that beautiful edge between insanity and pure bliss. But she wasn’t quite there, and she wanted to be on top.


I absolutely loved this book. It had a lot of things going on but it sucked you in. I couldn't put book down once started.

I loved Brock and Krista together, they may of been banded together because of circumstances. But you could tell they had feelings together. Brock can be a difficult man but Krista helps.

I can't wait for more.


Brock & Krista

Two tough people who aren't ready for a relationship. A few too many drinks and surprise they are going to have to manage something. She is a cop still in training and he works for a security company. The oldest of four brothers, he has been the man of the house since he was twelve and his father died. Control is essential for both of them. Life together is gonna be each trying to put their foot forward stepping in front. Who's gonna win?

Protecting her is even more important when he finds out she is being harassed by her trainer.

The story is fun, serious, emotional with characters that are related, friends, and often funny, but always loyal. Protecting Krista becomes more important when others need protection as well. A good story with characters that are likable but often need a nudge in the right directions. I am anxious for the next brother's story.
