Release Day: Numb (Silver Knight #1) by Lynn Rider

Twenty-three year old Meagan Chambers always wanted to be a musician. 
Her parents wanted her to be a doctor. 

She decided to risk everything to follow her dreams…

Starting over in the city of her dreams, her hard work and dedication had paid off, landing Meagan a coveted seat on one of the country’s top orchestras. 
She was doing what she loved. 
And everything was perfect.

Until she met Ashton Harris. 

Lead guitarist and backup vocalist to the chart-topping Silver Knight, Ashton was unlike anyone she’d ever met. With one glance of his crooked grin, she knew he could be her undoing, but determined to succeed, she refused to let anyone step in her way … 

Not even him.

Because falling for someone like Ashton Harris could ruin everything.

“Ashton, what are you doing here?” I asked through clenched teeth, looking up and down the hall. This wasn’t the kind of building where you’d expect to see a six foot four tattooed man slumped over, passed out in the hallway.
He continued his lazy grin as he looked me up and down once more before righting his eyes on mine. “I needed to see you.”
“Well, you have. Now leave.”
He jumped to his feet, seemingly unaffected by my words as he closed the distance between us. He stood close, closer than what was considered acceptable by most people’s standards. His much larger frame towered over my already tall five foot ten stature. My body froze at the nearness, his presence infiltrating every one of my senses. I took a step back, trying to create a separation to bring clarity to the situation, but he stepped in sync, nearing again.
“Ashton, what are you doing here?” I asked nervously.
“I don’t know,” he whispered as he slowly bent down to cover my mouth with his.
Flashbacks of the night before raced through my mind. It took everything I had to react in that split second before his mouth made contact. I turned my head and with both hands on his chest, I mustered every ounce of strength to push him away. My efforts were lost against his muscular body. It was like trying to move a mountain. He rested his head on the wall that I was now backed against, caging my body with his.
“I don’t know,” he whispered again before he pushed away, creating just enough distance to lock his beautiful brown eyes on mine.
We stood staring at one another, not saying a word. The pain was so intense that I wasn’t sure that I could say anything. I wanted him so badly, but he was so bad for me. He would shatter me and my dreams. Last night was proof of that.
“Ashton, you need to go.” My voice wavered with uncertainty. He leaned in, bringing his lips closer.“No, not after last night,” I said just above a whisper. His expression dropped with shame.
“We belong together,” he said quietly, his eyes silently pleading.
“Maybe one day, but not now,” I managed to get out before my throat constricted with a lump that I could no longer swallow.

I'm a wife and mother of two beautiful children. Being from sunny south Florida, I never spent much time inside reading. I decided to give it a try with a highly talked about trilogy and found myself devouring the pages like a mad woman. Although I knew I was hooked with that trilogy, the hundreds of books I read in the following year proved it. 

Through my love of reading sparked the inspiration to try my hand at writing. I wrote two full length novels as a hobby and only through my husbands encouragement did I ever consider self publishing.
