An AWWM (Asian Woman, White Man) romance…

What do you do when your entire life shatters?

For Korean sorority sister Kim Lee, life has never been as easy as people think: life at University of California, Beverly Hills, as a member of the elite Omega Mu Gamma sorority, is not all macarons and mimosas. All she wants is for senior year to go off without a hitch, but during her last semester, the unthinkable happens…and she’s the one responsible. After a night at Club Grit goes horribly wrong, everything in her life gets more messed up…until finally? Everything shatters.


He’s the only one that can help her pick up the pieces…

Lawrence Lamont is the mysterious billionaire who operates from the shadows of Club Grit. Why does he have a fascination with Kim, and why is he willing to give her so many second changes? What is it that ties them together, the secret he hasn’t even revealed to her yet? Can Kim learn to let Lawrence in, and to let him help her, or is she going to lose him forever?

This is a new adult/college romance with sex described in graphic detail, strong violence, strong language, and other issues young adults face, and is a book for mature readers only.

“Where are you going?” he said, pulling me into his embrace from behind, but I resisted and he let me go. 
I turned and looked at him, not wanting to make a scene, not here, not anywhere, because the part of my life that could described as having scenes was supposed to be behind me, but apparently, it wasn’t. Apparently, I couldn’t have nice things and I couldn’t have Lawrence or any semblance of a normal relationship. “Where I have to go, Lawrence. I can’t be here with you, not now, not yet. I…I can’t do this anymore.”

“Wait!” he said, reaching his hand out, and I took it and turned once more, pulling him closer to me. We were on the streets of Los Angeles, roaring with cars and with lights and with things passing by, the way that what we had could only be as fleeting and as ephemeral as blinking cars and billboards, good for a season here, not forever, not for us.

I rubbed his hand and looked back up at him. “For what? For things to get better? No, there are things I have to do, Lawrence, things that are dirty, that are shameful, that you have no idea about and that I can never let you know about. I lied to you, Lawrence, when I said I had no secrets with you. I have one, and it’s gotten to the stage where I can either reveal it to you, and surely lose you, or I can just cut this relationship off, saving what remains of my pride, because you and I both know I damn well don’t have my dignity any more.”

“Kim, whatever it is, I’m sure it’s not as big of a deal as you think it is,” he pleaded, and I knew he meant well, but I let go of his hand.

I shook my head and let out a small exasperated half-sigh, half-laugh. He had no idea. He had no fucking idea what I was dealing with and he was about to tell me that? That line? “Not as big of a deal? What’s your problem, Lawrence, you don’t trust my judgment now? I can’t do this anymore. I can’t just let you trivialize what’s going on my life, things you don’t know about, that I can’t even let you know about. If I can’t even tell you about it, what makes you think that my secret isn’t a big deal? Fuck you!” I screamed, and I didn’t care who looked. In that moment, the entire world shattered again, as I suddenly hated the body-con dress, as I suddenly despised the real Chanel cross body that, as loosely as it hung on my shoulders, felt like it was choking me. I wanted to rip them off but knew how much they’d cost Lawrence, expensive clothes for his expensive pet, and I just turned, entered the car, and asked his driver to take off.

Everything changes when Katie hops into the front seat of Adam’s ambulance. Overwhelmed by what they are feeling, neither possess the confidence to make the first move. They walk away from each other, full of regret.

He unravels blaming himself for what happened with Katie.

The only one who helps to ease his guilt somewhat is Jada. But as his new ambulance partner, Adam considers her off limits. He doesn’t want to get seriously involved with anyone, much less her. Yet he can’t stop fantasizing about the feel of her caramel skin against his.
