About the Unfinished Nights – Complete Duet:
BEFORE THAT NIGHT:
Before that night, Addison Milan had been just a college dropout secretly raising her two young siblings in a beat-up minivan she'd bought with her first semester's tuition refund--the only money her addict mother hadn't taken off with when she'd abandoned them nearly two years ago.
Before that night, Caine Spencer had been just a rough, gruff cop sent to check out the phoned-in claims of suspected child neglect involving the same woman he'd met just months prior when she'd first served him the city's worst diner coffee...which he'd been drinking daily ever since.
Before that night, Addison would never have thought the man she'd been fighting hard not to fall for--her only friend in her new shadow of a life--would be in a position to rip her family apart.
Before that night, Caine would never have believed any woman could make him fall head over heels, let alone make him feel so damn compelled to look the other way when it came to his job.
Then that one perfect night changed everything.
EVERY NIGHT WITHOUT YOU
Seven damn years of wondering whether the woman was still alive...whether she'd spent the last two thousand five hundred fifty-five days wondering if he was still alive.
Wondering whether that night was as burned into her memory as it was his.
Seven years having his heart tethered to Addison―and now she's back. With even more reasons to run than she'd had then.
Only this time, Caine isn't letting the gorgeous little flight risk out of his sight.
Regardless of how noble her reasons may be.
Caine stopped with his hand on the doorknob and studied her for a bit, with those deep, stormy eyes of his that always saw too much, read her too well. Then, he quietly pushed open the door to the darkened room and walked in.
But he made no move to flick on the light switch.
Instead, he simply stood there, just inside the doorway, holding the door open for her silently, waiting for her to decide if she wanted to go into the pitch-blackness with him.
Addison knew the choice to step over that threshold, into the unknown, was symbolic of so much more than what he was asking in that moment…a fact she was certain hadn’t escaped him.
He didn’t back down. But he didn’t push, either.
“Alec thinks there’s no way you and I can be friends,” she whispered, in a feeble attempt to keep them away from a ledge they’d be tempted to jump off of, where there would be no coming back from. “This is sort of an experiment he’s conducting to prove his hypothesis.”
“Did I mention I hated that ‘just friends’ idea from the start?”
Yeah. Her too.
“You want to know what I was thinking about when you suggested it?” he continued, reaching up to put his forearm against the door jamb, crowding the opening with his broad, six-foot frame.
She shouldn’t. No good could possibly come from being allowed inside Caine Spencer’s head. “Yes.”
The gravelly rumble of his voice turned hypnotic. “I was remembering how those soft, sexy sounds you’d make when I’d kiss you on your neck—right where that new tattoo is—would test me, nearly break me of my control every time.”
When his eyes began tracing intently over the lines of her tattoo, the air in her lungs thinned, and slipped past her lips before she could stop it.
His jaw tightened, and his forearms flexed. Once. Twice. Before his voice dropped a full octave lower. “A test. Every. Single. Time.”
Oh God, she wasn’t going to make it.
He took a step back.
She followed him in.

Albertson is one of my top authors. In
Book #1 we met Pat and Annie whom he had rescued from sex traffickers after she
was kidnapped. I had wondered whether

Pat's teammates Kyle. Kyle could have
become a national football star, but
after seeing what life he was living, he turned down the big bucks and joined
the Navy SEALS. While on leave, Kyle and his teammate
Vic head out dancing where they meet two females Sara and her friend. Kyle and
Sara hit it off and have an amazing night filled with passion and sizzling
chemistry. The next day though, they both
return to their normal lives.
Months later, Kyle is with his team on tour in Afghanistan when the USO tour
stops by to cheer up the troops with their San Diego Cheerleading team which to
Kyle's surprise Sara is on. The pair despite the rules have another
amazing night and promise to keep in touch. Though
tragedy while striking when the girls return on their way home as their convoy
is attacked and the girls kidnapped. Now Kyle and his team must

Review: Reality Alternatives - Lesley L. Smith - May 2016
Chloe Carsen is a physicist who has been working for the past few years on creating a
hypothesis and experiment that Alternative realities do exist using Virtual
Reality equipment. When everything is ready to go,
and Chloe puts on her VR, she is transported into the world where she is not only a Professor of Physics but also a
fun, loving mother of two boys with a handsome Husband who is currently an SAHH but studied Science. They have two
amazing boys Trevor and Zach. However strange things are happening in her Alt
reality as her boys and herself have abilities. As Chloe gets more
involved with her experiment, she can't help but stay in her Alternative
Reality as in the real world -all she has is her Science and job. What will
happen though when Chloe starts to spend more time in her new world? Will she be the same person when she
returns to her present state or will she want to live in her alternative
reality for as long as she is able too?
What will happen though when her two worlds collide,
and her friends and family end up breaking her equipment?
Will she be stuck between the two worlds or will reality right itself and show
her that sometimes the alternative world can come true? I have always been interested in alternative realities and
found Reality Alternatives an interesting read as what if out there somewhere
is a paralleluniverse, another form of ourselves and what if they are living the
life that we wish too?
