Rhett Morgan couldn't have been more wrong for me. The guy drank beer in the shower, for crying out loud. He had no prospects for the future, had slept with half the women in our beach town of Kill Devil Hills, and had no desire to change his manwhore ways.

And when Ben Turner, the guy I had loved from afar for the past four years, died and I couldn't get over his death, I desperately needed a distraction. A distraction like Rhett. So I used him for a one-night stand. Because, after all, that's the only thing a guy like Rhett is good for...right?

***New Adult Romance. This novel is the third book in the Kill Devil Hills series, however it can be read as a standalone. Recommended for 18+

***FREE on Kindle Unlimited!***
$0.99 for release day!


I can say without a shadow of a doubt that Pulled Under is my favorite book in the Kill Devil Hill series to date.  There is something about Rhett that makes it entirely impossible to do anything but love him. He’s the man whore who wants more…with Sydney. It’s always been Sydney, but she’s hung up on the death (or lack thereof) of Ben. It’s a slightly complicated semi-love triangle…

When everyone around you tells you that the man you gave your first kiss to is a man-whore, and your brother openly hates him, you probably wouldn’t give that man your virginity, too - years later, right? Not Sydney. She’s searching for someone to make her forget – to make the hurting stop – and the only one she can come up with is Rhett. He kissed away her tears once, why not let him have the whole shebang. She needs just one moment where her thoughts don’t drift back to Ben. Just one.

Rhett never forgot the girl he kissed by the dumpster behind Clancy’s. She was too young then, but she’s not now. And when someone that sexy waves a night of fun in your face, you take it. Only one problem… Rhett wants more. One night isn’t enough. Hell, neither is two or three or four.  He wants more with this girl, and he doesn’t even know her name…

After much searching, Rhett finally figures out who Sydney is, but sometimes the person you want doesn’t want you. Or does she?  Sometimes you have to fight for what you want.

“I’m probably always going to be the guy who likes ‘to f*ck and have a good time.’ But the difference now, the difference that has been there since our first time together…the difference is you’re the only girl I want to be that guy with.”

Sarah weaves one of those very tangled webs for us. I wasn’t sure who Sydney would choose until the very ends. A great deal of the story overlaps from previous books, so you have a general idea of where the story is going, it’s just from the POV of two different characters. I’ll be honest, usually this annoys me. I didn’t feel that way at all while reading Pulled Under. I was completely engrossed in the story, silently cheering for Rhett to get the girl.

I liked it. I loved it. And I’d highly recommend both Pulled Under and the entire Kill Devil Hill series.  I’m interested to see where Sarah takes these characters next. There are still a few loose ends - some individuals who need to have their stories told, or wrapped up.  I’m patiently awaiting those stories. Just don’t keep me waiting too long.
