Thank you, Chlamydia

 

Title: Thank You, Chlamydia
Author: K.A. Berg
Genre: Romantic Comedy
 Release Date: November 22, 2019
Blurb

 

My life was
perfectly planned out. I did all the right things.  My eyes were always on
the prize.  Working hard in college landed me the job I always wanted with
security and great benefits. I dated a boy-next-door type with a solid future.
We got engaged and planned the perfect wedding. Being sensible and
responsible put me on the pathway to a picture perfect life.
Everything was going
off without a hitch.
And, then it all
went to this sh*t!
My dream life blew
up in my face like a bad firework on the 4th of July. 
Since walking the
straight-and-narrow was a gigantic waste of my time, I decided to walk on the
wild side for a change.  Man oh man, did I get more than I bargained for.
A night to remember…
And an STD.  
Getting
chlamydia changed my life.
Who would have
thought an STD would help me pick up the pieces of my shattered life?
Certainly not me.
So, thank you,
chlamydia.

I’m making strides in the world of dirt late model racing. With back-to-back championships under my belt, I’m determined to win a third and be the youngest driver in history to do so. I’m going to make it happen. My career is my focus. That is until the ultimate distraction in the form of a redheaded bombshell drops into my life.

I know nothing about racing, but when my boss comes to me with a special assignment, I take it. Now, here I am traveling from city to city engrossed in this new world. I would never have dreamed that this project would lead me to new friendships and ultimately finding love.

We made a deal, our time together would expire, and we would part ways. The only problem with that is, I’m not so sure that’s what I want anymore. She’s pushing at my walls, and I’m trusting her, letting them fall.

It’s a shame we put an end date on our time together. I knew I would fall for him, but I never dreamed that those feelings would run this deep. The plan was to walk away, that’s what we agreed to, it’s just going to be harder than I thought. I need a new plan one that helps me move on without him.

REMEDY

Audio: https://amzn.to/37lEldv

It took one night with her to know she was my forever.
It took one minute for me to climb out of bed and drive away from her.
It’s taken me three years to confess that leaving her behind was the biggest mistake of my life.

I won’t stop until she knows what she means to me. I’ll convince her to listen to her heart.

It took one night for all of my dreams to come true.
It took one morning, waking up alone, for those same dreams to come crashing down around me.
It’s taken me three years to confess that night changed me forever.

He says this time is different, but how do I open my heart up to a man who’s already ripped it to shreds?

THE DIFFERENCE

eBook: https://amzn.to/35osxWd
Audio: https://amzn.to/2Xxye1p

I’ve kissed a lot of frogs, just to be covered in warts. I’ve been lied to, cheated on, and used more times than I can count. I don’t have it in me to keep going. I need a break from it all. I need time for the wounds to heal, and the scars to fade. Wouldn’t you know it’s my luck, to meet a gorgeous man, after declaring my self-imposed break? He’s charming, sexy, and determined to change my mind.

I wasn’t looking for her, but when I overheard her conversation, I had to add my two cents. Within minutes of talking to her, I knew she was unlike anyone I’d ever met. Bruised from past relationships, she’s built a fort around her heart. Doesn’t she know the prince always rescues the princess? I think about her all the time. The more I’m around her, the more I want to be. I’ve made my choice. It’s her. Now, all I have to do is prove to her that I’m the difference.

From the outside, Abby’s life looks like a fairytale.

Loving family, wealthy lifestyle, education at a prestigious university. The truth? She’s barely managing to survive. Few know the nightmare she lived before she was adopted. And no one knows the secret agony that still haunts her nightmares.

With a degree from Berkeley, she could have gone anywhere, but she’s back in Colorado. Not for a fresh start—fresh starts are only an illusion—but for Wes Ahern. Her protector, who throws around words like “therapy” and “talk to me.” Her brother in every way but blood. The one man she wishes could be so much more.

Maybe, just this once, she can stop running from her demons.

But does she dare let Wes see inside the darkest closets of her pain…or will love be the biggest mistake of her life?

An inspirational and emotional contemporary romance Begin with Me is a heartbreaking tale of fresh starts and old wounds. This jarring and dark novel will leave readers at the edge of their seats. This is part one of a duet, thus containing a cliffhanger that leads into the next installment. It contains references to childhood trauma, rape, kidnapping, and PTSD.

Going to meet your boyfriend’s family should be exciting.
It’s a relationship milestone most girls fawn over, but not
me.
It means coming face to face with my ex that I left high and
dry in the middle of the night almost six years ago.
I wouldn’t call what Lawson and I had a love story, or even
a relationship.
It was tumultuous and frustrating more than it wasn’t.
His lack of respect for me and my background left me bitter
and angry in the end.
Now I’m stuck facing my past, that never got any closure,
and damn it if there aren’t brief moments that I forget why
I went running.
If I let him get too close I know he’ll try to burn me again
I can’t let that happen when I have Reece to lose.
The battle between the two men is a decision I face alone.
One holds my heart, the other holds it hostage.
Sometimes love hands you a choice you never wanted to make.

Excerpt
“I could date you.” He blurts it like he wants to get it out
of his mouth before he can take it back. It’s my turn to laugh at him now. A
disbelieving scoff comes from me and I just stare at him in horror.
“No,” I reply “Just, No.”
“Why not? It would work. The girls never bothered Veronica.
It’s only because they feel like there’s a position to be filled.”
“They may not have bothered her, but I’m sure that didn’t
stop them from still being up your ass. Plus you don’t want that. You don’t
want a relationship.” 
“Don’t tell me what I want, Farah.” For the first time he
sounds irritated with me, or maybe just this conversation.
“I don’t need you to do me any favors,” I tell him bluntly.
“God-damn, I’m not doing you a ‘favor’. I’m trying to do
myself one, I’m not ready to let go of you just yet. I want more time with you
and if that means we are dating, exclusively, then so be it.” He’s breathing
heavy, like saying that took a lot out of him. I just stare back, trying to
read into what he’s doing. Is this reverse psychology?
He stalks towards me, slowly, hesitantly and he reaches out
for my hand by my side.
“All I can think about is being near you. Just let me have
that.” His eyes are sincere, and I get the feeling he isn’t allowed to feel
this vulnerable very often. I nod to him.
“Okay.” Why did I say that? I didn’t mean okay. I meant ‘no,
not in this lifetime.’ I meant ‘go find some other poor soul to suck the life
out of.’ He’s practically a dementor.
A smile lifts to one side of his face. “Okay.” His other
hand lifts to my chin and he pulls my own mouth to his. His tongue finds my own
and it’s warm and inviting. His touch feels like magic that I didn’t know I
needed.

I might as well permanently add the label “Ex” to my name. I’m
an Ex-Mr. Universe. Ex-Mr. Olympus. An Ex-Hollywood Stuntman. But no one from
my small hometown cares anything about that. They only care that I’m the
ex-boyfriend to the beloved Mayor’s daughter, Elaina Dyker.
And now, ten years later, I’m back, helping my siblings run my mother’s
bakery while she takes on chemo. What should have been a routine cupcake
delivery turns into utter chaos when the bachelorette party thinks I’m a
stripper. And what’s worse? Elaina is the maid of honor.
But the meme about us sure went viral fast. My small hometown has become
positively infested with tipsy bridesmaids looking for my erotic cupcakes.
Now Hollywood’s knocking again–and this time they want me and my ex, Mr.
Beefcake, and Ms. Prude, to star in a reality show.
It could solve all my problems—except her.

I love coffee.
As an author and a story-teller, it is the lifeblood to which my ideas
take flight. And I believe in giving credit where credit is due. Occasionally
someone (ie – my husband) will try to secretly switch out my beloved regular
coffee for decaf. I always know the difference. ALWAYS (I’m looking at you,
SEAN).
I am incapable of achieving the perfect ponytail. I’m dyslexic. I can
never wear white without spilling on myself. And I’ve never read Pride and
Prejudice (gasp!).
When I was younger and stole my mother’s Harlequins to read beneath the
covers with a flashlight (seriously, did we ALL do this? I think we did.), I
wanted to read about the tough as nails heroine. The perfectly imperfect girl
with quirks and attitude and sass. And the anti-heroes who were anything but
“Prince Charming.” Forget the knight on a white horse… give me the bad boy on a
motorcycle.
So, now, I write those romance novels I craved to see on the shelves all
those years ago—the sassy heroines. The badass heroes. I spend my days in the
throes of my imagination and am loving every minute of it. I can travel
anywhere and become anyone I want to be. One day, I’m a mechanic in Boston and
the next, I’m a vampire stripping in Las Vegas.
Since penning my first novel back in 2012, I’m now an international
author with 15 published books, in a wide range of contemporary romance
genres–(Paranormal, New Adult, Small town, Erotic Suspense… you name it!).
After living for a decade in Brooklyn, NY, I took the plunge and moved to
beautiful (although kinda chilly) Portland, Maine. I now live full time in
‘Vacationland’ with a kind of mean cat, a mellow chihuahua, and a very NOT
mellow lab-pittie mix. Oh, yeah… there’s a husband who draws comics somewhere
in that mix, too.
I can usually be found in a coffee shop with my nose in my laptop wearing
fabulous (albeit sometimes impractical) shoes.
I love connecting with readers and fellow sassy storytellers, so feel
free to drop me an email at katana.collins@gmail.com or connect with me on
Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (@katanacollins). You can find a list of my
available books over on my
Bookshelf or if you’ve already
read a book, it would make my day if you wrote a review!
