From the New York Times bestselling author of Stepbrother Dearest, comes a new forbidden STANDALONE romance.

What happens when the one you want is the only one you can’t have?
My name is Sevin.
Homeschooled and sheltered by my ultra-religious family, I was always taught that lust was a sin.
Elle was the girl who’d been carefully chosen for me.
After a long-distance courtship, I’d be moving into her family’s guesthouse so that we could get to know each other in the months before the wedding.
Boundaries were set: no inappropriate touching, no kissing, no sex before marriage.
I’d accepted those rules and my fate.
Until I met the one I wanted to sin with.
That was when restraint became a problem…especially since the one wasn’t Elle.
It was her sister, Evangeline.
You know what they say about best laid plans.
My name is Sevin, and I have sinned.

Told in alternating points of view, Sins of Sevin is a full-length standalone novel. Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. Only appropriate for adult readers age 18+.

In the sizzling new novel of Renita Pizzitola’s Crush series, Felicity knows that “Summer Boys” are only good for one thing. But what if hooking up with the right guy could lead to a fresh

Like most of the residents of her dead-end beach town, Felicity Daniels doesn’t know what she wants from her future. Instead of college, she’s waiting tables at the local grille where she’s more likely to run into the guy who was the love of her life—until one decision changed everything. Now as this year’s tourist season kicks in to high gear, Felicity realizes that whatever she wants isn’t going to
be found here.

Mason Hayes is the quintessential Summer Boy: hot, impulsive, and born without strings attached. While in town helping with the family fishing charter, he plans to have a little fun—and hopefully get over a certain girl. He’s never had a long-term relationship, but when he meets Felicity, he wonders if he’s found the girl who could change that.

With her heart still in repair, Felicity’s happy to have a distraction like Mason, but her best friend thinks he could also be her ticket out of this town. What’s the harm in using him to escape more than just her boredom? After all, he is just a Summer Boy, and they never stick around. But after one kiss, Felicity wonders if only one summer with Mason will ever really be enough.

 “Youre getting the kids hopes up,” Colby countered.
Thats not all shes getting up.” Owen wiggled his eyebrows and shot me the smile that probably melted hearts—and panties—all over his high school.
Can you believe these two?” Colby muttered to their friend, forcing my attention back to the new guy. “This is how they entertain themselves.”
The guys gaze swung to me, eyes flicking up and down my body, and then he smirked. “It is kind of entertaining.”
My smile faltered the tiniest bit and a hint of warmth rose into my cheeks because, hot damn, he was one of the best-looking Summer Boys Id seen in a while. And when he looked at me like that . . . wow.
Just then a large drop of ice cream dripped down my hand and landed near my foot. I raised my hand as more pink dribbled down the cone. “Ive gotta go. Hope isnt above licking this off my arm.”
Their friend stared at my hand, and something about his expression told me he wouldnt mind licking it off either. And really, I couldnt find a reason why Id object. Except for the fact my pregnant, possibly starving sister was waiting, and I was juggling twenty-five dollars’ worth of carnival food.
I said one last goodbye then headed back to Hope. Part of me wanted to hand off her food then go find the guys to get the scoop on the mystery man, but I couldnt ditch my sister.
Were the lines long?” Hope asked, barely acknowledging me as she focused in on the food I carried.
Not too bad. I ran into Colby on the way back.” I handed her the ice cream. “You may want to start with this.”
She grabbed the cone and licked all the way around to stop the dripping. “Did you get anything for yourself?”
I set the drink on the wooden railing surrounding the boardwalk, before handing her the corn dog. “Sweet potato fries.
Oh, those look good.”
I grinned. “Help yourself.”
After this, did you want to play some games or something?” She glanced down the walkway at the booths with whirring lights. “Could be fun. Wish I could do some rides, but you know . . .” She gestured to her stomach.
Port Lucia’s weekend carnival on the boardwalk was great for kids or dates. Other than that, it was a money pit and since I was saving up to buy a new lens for my camera, Id rather conserve my cash. “Its okay. We can just hang out.”
I reached inside the cotton candy bag and pulled out a piece of pink fluff. “So have you thought any more about baby names?”
Weve thought about it. Agreed is another story.”
Hope started rambling about how stressful choosing a name was, but my attention had drifted to the line for the roller coaster. Colby was easy to spot due to his height and trademark baseball cap bearing the logo of his dads fishing service. And I couldnt miss Owen, who practically ogled every passing girl. But the person who really caught my attention was the new guy, leaning against the railing and staring at his phone. His blond hair was overgrown and brushed across his forehead. Like the other guys, he wore jeans and a T-shirt, except he had a leaner build compared to Colby, but was nowhere near as slim as Owen. If I had to guess, Id say he was closer to Colbys age. Which was exactly my age.
I contemplated dragging Hope over there to say hi, but that idea came to a screeching halt as my ex-boyfriend Brody walked up to Colby. He seemed to only be stopping by in passing, but it didnt matter. Id go nowhere near that situation. Id managed to avoid him this long. I had no plans to change that tonight.
As I was about to turn away, my prospective Summer Boy looked up from his phone and right at me. Hed totally busted me staring. His mouth tugged into a little grin that was seriously adorable.
I smiled back then turned away before the rest of the guys noticed.
Isnt that Brody?” Hope asked, but I didnt answer. “Maybe you should go say hi.”
My head spun in her direction. Was she serious?
Its been over a year.”
I shook my head, having no interest in taking that trip down memory lane. And quite honestly, now that I knew he was here, I didnt have much interest in sticking around either.
I think I need some real food. This stuff isnt cutting it.” I tossed the remains of my sweet potato fries into the trash. “I can cook us dinner on the boat.”
Hope eyed the boats tied up in the harbor and frowned. “I don’t really like getting on that thing right now. All the rocking makes me feel . . . blegh.”
Want to go to Eddies and grab a bite?” I asked.
Ive eaten my weight in junk food. I should probably call it a night.”

Which was exactly what I wanted to do too. I gave my sister a quick hug and promised to hang out with her again soon. She made her way to the parking lot, and I made my way off the boardwalk and onto the nearby pier that led home—well, temporary home. After my eldest sister—along with her two kids—moved back in with my parents, the houseboat Mom inherited from Granddad became my residence. And I couldnt really complain. Rent free. Peace and quiet. But the best part was all my restless nights were spent with an ocean for a backyard.
