Once with him was never enough. I am the girl you dislike. The girl you snub at parties. I am the one who flirts with men and knows no boundaries. I am the one you whisper about. The one who has no rules. I am the one who takes and uses without any regret or excuses. On the outside I am perfect. I have money, looks, and a personality that makes people stand up and take notice, but on the inside I am broken and hurting. Then I met Cash Marshall. He wasn’t what I needed, but I wanted him anyway. It was Cash’s carved, muscular body I thought about. It was his cool, confident touch I craved. I swore he would only be a one-night stand, another distraction to take away the pain. But then our world changed. Our story is not about love. Love is pretty and sweet and full of niceties. Those no longer exist. Our story is about finding each other again in a world gone crazy. It’s about surviving the impossible when war ravaged our land. It’s about saving each other from the darkness and finding out just how strong we could be. And maybe, just maybe, along the way, we’ll find love… Once and for all.

I could come from his gaze alone, but I wanted something more. I wanted him in me. It might be wrong but it was who I was. Who I had to be.
I reached out, pulling him back to me. He groaned and settled between my legs. I didn’t think about being in a public bathroom. I didn’t worry about someone unlocking the door and walking in on us. I only thought of him fucking me.
With crazed frenzy, I reached for his belt buckle. In seconds I had it undone and his fly ripped down. I pushed his jeans aside and plunged my hand inside, wrapping my fingers around him.
Holy fuck. He was big and long and for one unbelievably insane second I wondered how he would ever fit in me.
“Second thoughts, princess?” Cash asked in whispered rumble, the side of his mouth quirking up.
“Hell, no,” I breathed.
He hissed and took my mouth again with his as I started to move my hand up and down on his cock. He was hardness draped with silk, so wide my fingers barely met around him. I ran my palm up, catching the drip of precum on his tip with my thumb. I smeared it over him before sliding back down. His fingers tightened on my hip, digging into me painfully.
“Condom. Do you have a fucking condom?” he asked, tearing his mouth from mine. “God, please say yes.”
I reached for my purse and dumped the contents on the counter, not caring if my lipstick rolled away or my wad of cash fell on the floor. I grabbed the little silver package I always carried with me. A girl had to be prepared nowadays.
“Put it on me,” he demanded, thrusting his cock up into my hand.
Willing to do anything he asked, I let go of him and tore the package open, letting the wrapping fall to the floor. He hissed when my fingers closed around him again, holding him tight before moving up and down. When he started breathing harder, I stopped and unrolled the condom on him, wondering if the damn thing would even fit.
He held still but I could see fire in his eyes. His fingers on my thighs tightened, encouraging me to continue. I did, torturing slow, enjoying the feel of him in my hand.
As soon as the condom was in place, his mouth captured mine again. He wrapped an arm around my waist and dragged me to the edge of the counter. The head of his shaft pushed against me, seeking entrance into my pussy. I trembled, the anticipation and need almost killing me.
He groaned and gathered the hem of my dress in one strong fist. With a jerk, he shoved it up around my waist. It left me exposed to the air and to him, making the damp part of me all that more sensitive.
“Where do I belong?” he growled, his dick nudging at me.

Promise Me Once by Paige Weaver is the third book in the amazing series Promise Me.  This story follows the every polite but hot cowboy Cash Marshall and snarky, defiant but carefree Cat Phillips as their world's collide prior to the attack that changed their world forever.  This book was an amazing read, and I enjoyed reading about Cash and Cat's life before the war that overtook the United States and how they finally meet up again almost 3 years later in a manner that is so completely different from the first time they saw each other.  And oh the cliff hanger on this one!  I cannot wait to see what comes next in this series, especially once they return to the farm and meet up with Ryder and his family.  This book was a 4 star read for me and I would highly recommend it to others.

Cat Philips was living her life as a college student like any other, partying and having a good time with a some classes on the side.  Going home with a different man every night, regardless of age or social position had become her mantra; it kept her from really feeling and most importantly from falling in love.  Despite having to take care of her younger brother Tate and listening to her other brother Nathan try to tell her she deserved more out of life, Cat continued on her path of self destruction because she felt as though she deserved it.  She suffered from the guilt of her boyfriend and best friend's death in an untimely accident that was far from her fault.  Her chance meeting with Cash in a bar and his saving her from a too handsy guy led the two most unlikely people to ever connect to go on a date.  It is only during that date that Cat starts to feel, and feel is the last thing that she wants to do.  Even though the sparks that fly between Cat and Cash are electric, she tells him that it was a mistake and walks away from him.

After returning to school in Austin with her brother and Tate, the unimaginable happens, the Unites States is attacked and left in shambles.  A bomb that knocks out all of the electricity, allowing for no communication, no vehicles, no food, changes the world as she knows it and there is only one way to live, do anything to survive.  After coming across some unsavory people who seem to be some of many taking advantage of people during this horrifically scary time, Cat completely changes into the person it seems she was always meant to be.  She becomes someone strong and indestructible, knowing that it is the only way that she can survive the world as it now is.  Accidentally meeting up with Cash's sister, who happened to be her neighbor, Cat and her two brother with Keely set out to travel back to their house where they know it will be safer then staying at her dorm in the city.  It was what lies in their path that they must face in order to get there that may lead to more heartache then any of them can handle.
I was so excited to see this book. Last year I had read Promise Me Darkness (book 1) and Promise Me Light (book 2). As I started this book I was slightly confused as to how these characters come into play from the other books. Then it clicked! Cash was at the middle/end of Promise Me Light.

Let's begin. Catarina, aka Cat, is a total heartless diva. She uses alcohol and men to assuage her guilt and not "feel". She feels guilty for things that were beyond her control. At a bar she meets Cash.

Cash is far from the typical guy who knows that she is a "sure thing" and doesn't oogle her as such. Oh he knows she's gorgeous but he was raised as a respectful gentleman.

The fireworks fly as they come together. Neither can get the other out of their mind, but to avoid feeling Cat heads back to school.

This is when the world takes a turn. It becomes gorilla warfare as Cat, her two brothers, Nathan and Tate try to get back home. They also acquired Keely who happens to be Cash's sister.

This story line rocked! I couldn't stop turning the pages.

Does Cash ever find Cat and his sister? Do they make it back home?

Go one click to find out! Can't wait for Promise Me Forever.


Promise Me Darkness

"He was my darkness and I was his light. We couldn't exist without each other." For me, life was simple. I went to school and studied. I spent time with my friends and stayed out of trouble. I didn't drink or swear and I only dated gentlemen. I was the typical good girl with a bright future. My world seemed perfect. But that was about to change. Ryder Delaney was the one imperfection in my life. He was the bad boy, the black sheep, the one your mother always warned you about. He had only one hard-and-fast rule - Don't fall in love. But some rules were meant to be broken. We were best friends, inseparable since childhood despite our differences. I knew the real man hiding behind the tattoos and bad attitude. He knew all my secrets and dreams. But he didn't know there was one thing I wanted and couldn't have...him. But sometimes Fate has a way of intervening. Soon our world collapsed. War erupted. Darkness prevailed. Alone and on the run, our only goal was to survive and to ignore the feelings we had for each other. But love is powerful... and so is the darkness.  

Promise Me Light
The epic conclusion of New York Times bestselling book Promise Me Darkness.
"I'm darkness, Maddie. Stay away from men like me. You'll only get hurt." At one time my life was simple. Easy. But that was before the war. Now I was no longer an average college student. I was a survivor. A woman living in a ravaged world. My future was not bright and my life was far from perfect. The war had taken so much from me… but it wasn’t finished yet. It wanted more. It wanted my heart. My soul. The one person I couldn’t live without. It wanted Ryder Delaney. My best friend. The bad boy. The one person who could fight like no other and love me like no one else. He was the father of my baby. I watched him walk away one hot summer day and I prayed he would return. I needed him like I needed air to breathe and water to drink. Without him I was lost. A light without her darkness. Until he returns, I’ll wait for him. And I believe he will return because love is powerful… And so is the light calling him home.
