Hair, makeup, designer dresses, I'm always perfect.
The perfect person that everyone expects me to be.
Too bad it's all just a mask.
Behind the facade, I'm broken.
After my mask starts to crumble, too, I head back to Seaside for a friend's wedding.
When I run into a tattooed bad boy, he promises to put my pieces back together. But what if he breaks me completely?
“Tell me, Beautiful, if I told you to drop to your knees right here and deep throat me, would you even hesitate?”
My traitorous moan is all the answer he needs as my knees give out. If he wasn’t holding me up, I’d already be on the floor.
He chuckles then licks my neck, earning another moan before kissing and sucking on my heated flesh. “You remember when I told you I had a list of things I want to do to you?”
I nod, it’s all I can formulate as my skin heats past boiling.
“Tonight, we’re going to check off every single item.”
“Vander,” I pant, gripping his shirt.
“You’re not ready yet, Beauty.” He places one more tender kiss on my neck before slapping my ass with a sound that echoes around the room. “Tonight.”
Welcome to Summers in Seaside, a small town located along the Oregon Coast and home of the Seaside Festival. This series returns in July of 2023, with brand new stories filled with sun, sand and summer adventures that will tug at your heart strings.
Monica Misho-Grems is a young and budding author from Portland, Oregon. As a child, she split her time between many hobbies, including dance, reading, and writing. At a young age she showed a deep passion for literature - both reading it and writing it - but it wasn’t until her teen years that she began to dream of doing it professionally.
Monica got her start writing more serious content by writing fanfictions on various message boards late in her teen years and early twenties. Once she became more comfortable, with herself and her writing, she began dabbling in more erotic literature, and eventually found the style that we see.
Nowadays, Monica Misho-Grems lives in Southeast Portland with her husband, John, their three daughters, and her father. She is a full-time mother, wife, daughter, friend, and Clinical Trainer for a local OB/GYN company; she hopes to add “writer” to the full-time mix.
