Tristan Loren is the first to admit he’s lived a privileged life.
However, the top schools, the best games and phones and cars, the finest of whatever his heart desired has come with strangers yelling for his attention and camera flashes in his face.
His classmates have visions of college life in the fall following senior year, while his fantasy is a normal existence. Whatever normalcy is, he’s sure it’s not graduating with honors–and his virginity.
Aside from having a paranoid mom who has made it her mission to see that he’s never alone with a girl, he wants his first time to be with someone who doesn’t know him as Jack Storm-of-the-multi-platinum-Jackal Junior.
Chasing the vision of a woman and a world who doesn’t know of him takes him from the sunshiny suburbs of Dallas to the snowy streets of Detroit.
When he sees Sash in person, the girl he’s texted, phoned, and Skyped for the better part of a year, he’s drawn to her secret smile, and the tattooed half sleeves decorating her arms. Her fiery, fun personality and musical skills make her seem the soul mate he’s been seeking.
But Sash has her own secrets—secrets that make him wish he’d never met her. Falling for Sash and finding his own identity may cost him more than what’s in his wallet.
A Shit Storm can stand alone but for fans of Six Silver Strings Series, this novel includes scenes with characters from G-Strings and D-Strings with several appearances of Jack and Marissa Storm.
I clamp my teeth together to keep from saying some stupid something.
No, I don’t want her going out like that. I don’t want her going out at all tonight. But certainly not dressed as if she’s looking to hookup.
Getting up, I turn away, laying my guitar in the case and speak over my shoulder. “Thought we had practice?”
“I’m about to text Sladen and Mark. I think they’ll be good with it. I mean we’ve moved practice around a couple of times when things come up with them, right?”
Her tone sounds different. A blatant, innocent pitch. Similar to the couple of times I told my mother Dusty and I had a test to study for, and then he and I cruised the mall parking area, whistling at every hot babe we saw.
“Did something come up?”
“Some guy asked Mindi out today, and she doesn’t want to meet him alone.”
“You and Mindi are meeting some guy who asked her out?”
“He’s bringing a friend.”
“You have a date?”
“Not a date. It’s not like that. She can’t go meet a stranger alone. And when she told him, he said I should come. That he has a friend.”
“That’s a date.”
“No. Technically, it’s not.” Her dark brows rise, and her head tips a bit. “Because… No one ever asked me out!”
I’m sensing a double meaning here. Because I’ve never asked her out. But the thought of some shithead’s eyes—and possibly hands—on Sash is making me crazy. “If you’re meeting some douche at Bill’s then it’s a date!”
“Oh. ’Kay! Okay, Trey. I’m meeting some douche. I have a date!”
“No. No, you don’t!” My feet have slowly eaten up the space between us, and now I’m in her space—in her face. “You’re not going on a date!”
“And who’s going to stop me? Last I checked, I don’t have a boyfriend.”
Again, I feel these are not idle words. That they are as much a test as they are a taunt. And all I can do is hold my ground with no good argument. “You’re not going.”
“Get outta the way! What’s your problem?”
When she tries to push past me, my hands automatically shoot up, gripping her upper arms to stay her. With a shriek of rage, she attempts to twist from my grasp.
And behind me, Sladen’s voice booms. “What the hell do you think you’re doing? Get your hands off her!”
