Rushed – Love like Yours Series – Book #1
Ellerslie left it all behind. The pain, the heartbreak, the anger…
I was an idiot.
I sighed in defeat. “I know he’s an asshole Q. I really do. But I don’t know how to forget him. I don’t want him in my life, not ever again… but I miss the future that our relationship should have had, if he were different that is. I should have been planning a future with him. It should have been my next step, I should be expecting a child with my loving husband… but I’m not. And now I don’t think it will ever be on the cards for me.”
The last thing El is looking for is love, and she’s especially not prepared to get caught up in her best friends hotter than hell big brother.
“I felt my mouth hang open as I turned to look at him. The air between us crackled with tension, sexual and otherwise. But before I could even come up with some witty remark to throw back at him, he took a couple of steps towards me. He was so close I could smell him.”
Lawson doesn’t give a shit about love. It’s the absolute last thing on his mind.
“From that moment on, I decided love was a load of crap. Commitment? Ridiculous. Feelings? Unnecessary. I became a heartless bastard who wanted nothing more than casual encounters with plenty of women.” I felt El flinch, but I carried on, she needed to hear it. “For the last ten years, I haven’t had anything other than a series of meaningless fucks. I’ve never developed any feelings towards a single woman I’ve been with. There was never any difference between any of them.”
She’s heartbroken and stubborn.
He’s wounded and proud.
The last thing either of them is prepared for is finding that once in a lifetime, fairy-tale love.
“You are the difference Ellerslie. The only difference.”
Having Lawson make love to me was like burning slowly. The look in his eyes lit the match, the touch of his hands stoked the fire, and our passion fed the flames.
They both have demons in their pasts, the question is, will that be what comes back to haunt them? Or will some unforeseen force be what tries to tear them apart?
Rushed is the first instalment in the Love like Yours Series.


Pierced – Love like Yours Series book 2

‘Pierced’ is a novella in the Love like Yours Series.

It was strange to think that such a short time ago it was just me… and then I found El… or maybe she found me – and I had something I never even knew I was looking for.
I thought I had everything.
As per usual life had other plans.
One event would alter our entire course…
We hadn’t even made it down the aisle yet and already there was a baby in the picture. I knew she was going to turn my whole fucking life upside down. How I would run a business, care for a family and still cherish El… I had no clue.
I wasn’t sure I had what it took to be a good father, I knew Ells would be a great mother, and Aunty Quinn had promised she would be there to help in any way we needed.
I was determined to try my hardest. I wanted to be the best I could be for her when she arrived. She was part of my family… her, El and I… we were a family now.
If I was really being honest with myself, just being a new father was not my main concern – learning to be a father to a child that wasn’t mine? Yeah… that was up there on the list.

Interview with Nicole Goodin:

  1. Can you tell us a little about your books?
    I have published the first two books in the Love like Yours series. The first book, Rushed, introduces us to Ellerslie, who is looking to escape L.A and her very recent ex-husband. She moves to Boston with her best friend Quinn, to be closer to her brother and open a new branch of her fathers business. It is there that she meets Lawson, Quinn's hot older brother who sweeps her off her feet. Pierced, the second book in the story, is a novella, and is a continuation of their story, with a little more insight into Quinn, who's story is being worked on currently, titled, Hunted. I have done all my own covers, editing, formatting etc, so I am just learning as I go. I am working on an updated cover for Rushed (I'm sick of looking at myself!) and am also working on the formatting for paperbacks.
    2.  What inspires you to write?
    I think reading has inspired me to write. I'm always very inspired by the work of Chloe Walsh. The ideas just flow and it's just like a story playing out to me.
    3.  Do you have a favorite spot to write?
    To be honest, I usually write from the couch, with the laptop in my lap!
    4.  Do you have a favorite food or drink you must have nearby when writing?
    Not at all, although chocolate is always welcome.
    5. Do you listen to music while you write?
    Always. I make Spotify playlists for the characters I'm writing about.
    6.  What is a usual writing day like for you, how is it structured?
    I don't write full time, I barely even have the time to write part time. Usually I try to get some writing in when I don't have work and my son in having a nap, or in the evenings when the kids are in bed.
    7.  What is the last book you read?
    Torment by Chloe Walsh
    8.  What are writing projects are you currently working on?
    I am working on Hunted, book 3 in the series, but there are more ideas swirling than I can even attempt to keep up with.
