Ahhh! The next Ryan Rupert book is coming!
I’ve been working very hard on Surviving Spring Break With Ryan Rupert, which will be on shelves on March 7th. Today, I want to share an exclusive first look with you!
It’s been seven months since Aubany’s nightmare vacation to Nula Island—where she not only fell in love with her snarky neighbor, Ryan Rupert, but survived a brutal stabbing to the gut.
Now, Aubany has been invited by her friend Lewis to his family’s cabin in the mountains of Blakesky for Spring Break. However, memories of Courtney attacking her still plague her—even though it’s been months since her last sighting. Not to mention that Ryan has started avoiding conversations about the future together, and the town of Blakesky has a strange, unsettling history surrounding it.
But nothing could possibly bring Courtney back into their lives after all this time, and things with her and Ryan are fine… Or at least, that’s what Aubany’s determined to believe—except Aubany’s no safer in Blakesky than she was on Nula Island, and she’s about to discover a dark secret that will not only threaten her and Ryan’s relationship… but could bring her face to face with death once more.
After dinner Ryan and I, both a little more light headed from the alcohol, headed up to my room to bring out the movies.
Once we were on the landing, away from my parents, he tugged on my arms and bought me flush against his chest, holding me close. His lips found mine and I could feel the urgency in his kiss.
He guided me into my bedroom and kicked the door shut behind him. As I backed towards the bed, he stumbled over my feet and removed his V-neck shirt, revealing his bare chest.
My heart was in my throat with intensity of the way he was looking at me—but then he smiled softly and my fears faded. I remembered the first time I’d done it with Ryan and I’d been so nervous, but he had a way of making me feel safe. A part of me still couldn’t believe someone like Ryan had wanted me like that… but then it became very clear it was no joke, no fluke, but a reality I got to savour.
I especially loved the way he cupped my cheeks in his hands—there was something about it that felt like he was focused on me. Not just my body—but my entire being. He did it now, his hands softly grazing the sensitive parts behind my ears as he kissed me deeply. I felt his body press into mine and a soft moan escaped me.
In a matter of moments, he was kissing along my neck, my collarbone, his hands slipping under my shirt to feel my bare skin. He lay me down on the bed and felt my breathing increase pace as I focused on every sensation. He removed my shirt and our bare skin pressed together, our mouths meeting once more as we tangled together and freed ourselves of our clothes.
A short time later, he held me in his arms as we were drifting off to sleep, and I felt content. I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else, or having anyone else in my life. I just wanted Ryan for the rest of my life.
