#1 CRUSH (Loose Ends, #1)

Nicole Langley’s #1 Crush has always been Gabriel Roberts, but settling for being a friendly acquaintance has had to be enough.
Gabriel has always seen Nicole as his good friend’s very pretty, but extremely off limits baby sister.
Then a hot summer day and an even hotter discovery pushes them over the lines of friendship, over the lines of unrequited desire, and into each other's arms.
Will they indulge and move on? Or will this crush turn into something more, something deeper? Something that leaves loose ends begging to be tied…

CLOSER (Loose Ends, #2)

After a whirlwind week of hot sex and growing affection, Nicole and Gabriel were forced to part ways and to return to real life. For a while they danced around each other, meeting up when they could, the distance between them rivaled only by their desire to be together again.
Now these lovers are no longer star-crossed. They’re in the same city at the same time and can finally indulge their insatiable passion. At least until Gabriel’s increasingly popular band goes on tour.
But the ticking clock of his budding music career isn’t the only obstacle to contend with. A blast from Gabriel’s wild past, a guy that kept Nicole warm in Gabriel’s absence, and fear of what the future holds all converge just as they’ve begun to realize this might be love…
Author's Note: This book contains strong language and sexual content with dark elements, some of which readers may find uncomfortable.

MIND OVER MATTER (Loose Ends, #3)

They said they would try. They said they would give their love a chance.
But when the mistakes of Gabriel's past clashed with Nicole's hopes for the future, they realized love wasn't enough. They tied up the loose ends of their broken hearts and walked away.
Now, Gabriel's career is on a meteoric rise and he is back to his bachelor ways. He told Nicole he couldn't promise forever and did his best to let her go, but these days he wonders if he spoke too soon.
Nicole has a new life, a new man, and she refuses to look back. To everyone around her though, not looking back looks an awful lot like running scared from the past.
With Jackie and Ian's wedding approaching, a reunion between the best man and the maid of honor is to be expected. What they don't expect is for the olive branch of friendship to catch fire with a love and need that is stronger than even their best intentions.
They called it quits. But is it really over? They still love each other. But does that even matter when they've made up their minds that there's no going back?

Can I just say how glad I am that I got to read this series all at the same time? There is nothing more frustrating than starting a new series, falling in love with it and then having to wait approximately eleventy-two months until the next installment is released.

From the start of the series, you know Nicole and Gabriel are meant to be together. But if the series was written like that, it wouldn't be as entertaining and engaging. Nicole has always crushed on Gabriel, but of course to him, Nicole was off-limits since she is his best friend's younger sister. That all changes when he suddenly sees Nicole in a whole new light, and they end up being friends with benefits. Which is all well and good, until feelings are brought into the picture. Once you start mixing in the heart, you know it's all going to change, and maybe not always in a good way. They go through their ups-and-downs, ultimately deciding it wasn't going to work and parted ways. Obviously that's not the end of the story for Nicole and Gabriel, but is it too late for them?

Now, I would be remiss if I didn't say something about the sexy times between Nicole and Gabriel.
Hot damn those sexy times are extremely, incredibly HAWT! Just ask my husband ;)

These are characters who are written in such a way that  you can't help but experiencing the same feelings and emotions they are. But also, there's another character in the story who you might not want to like, but inevitably you do end up liking that person. There is a past relationship that shows back up, and that person spews so much vitrolic you might get the urge to spork them in the taint. Hard. The chemistry between Nicole and Gabriel is undeniable and you will find yourself rooting for them to finally get a chance to be together for real, but once again, life happens and everything is on the line for them. Surely you realize I won't tell you how this ends, but the epilogue does a great job of tying up those loose ends (see what I did there?)

This is a box set that I highly, highly recommend reading. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
