{Blog Tour & Giveaway} Always Enough by Stacy Borel


“There is nothing worse than pretending that you don’t care about something, when that is all you can think about.”

Harper Graham wears a mask, and not the pamper kind. She conceals her pain with shoes, shots, and lots of sex. But while her life appears fantastic to most, Harper herself knows that the most important thing in life is not financial stability, but emotional. Having been let down by her absent father for most of her life, Harper chooses to keep the men in her life at arms length. Well, that was until Kyler Morgan.

Kyler Morgan has been successful at nearly everything in his life … nearly. Traveling the country with the band Down Glory Road, Kyler has had time to reflect upon his life and in particular his relationship with feisty, drop-dead gorgeous realtor, Harper. Realizing that she is the woman of his dreams, Kyler resolves to win back Harper, and prove to her that she is, and always has been, enough.

But the path to true love rarely runs smoothly, and when their journey takes a number of twists and turns, will Harper and Kyler manage to hold tight, or fall by the wayside?



I walked as far away from him as I could and sat on the unmade bed. Pinning him with a glare I asked, “To what do I owe the pleasure, traitor?”
      “Traitor?” He actually looked shocked.
      “Well, I could actually come up with a few other choice words. In fact maybe it’s a good thing that you came here. It’ll save me the trip of finding you.” I brought the cup to my mouth and took a slow sip.
      His mouth quirked up in a slow, sexy grin. “You were coming to look for me?”
      I leveled a glare at him. “I know what you did, and you have some serious explaining and groveling to do.”
      “And what is it you think I did?”
      “Don’t play games with me, Kyler. You told Em everything.”
He shrugged. “And?”
I was getting more and more pissed off by his nonchalance and ‘whatever’ attitude.
“What was your reasoning? Besides you thinking that if you told my best friend everything maybe I would see the error of my ways and come back to you?”
      The smirk that was on his face slowly faded into a frown.
      “I never assumed anything. In fact, I’d have to be the dumbest man on earth to assume anything when it comes to you.”
      What did he mean by that? Before I got a chance to think more about it, he started to stalk slowly toward me. With every step, my heartbeat picked up. His gaze was unyielding and I felt my anger going away, and desire mixed with nervousness crept in. I wanted to pinch myself to remind me why I was angry, and to hold on to that anger. It was the only emotion I wanted to feel right now. Lust was an unwelcome sensation, and I hated that I felt nervous about his advancement.
      “What are you doing?” I asked, trying to keep my voice steady.
      “I’m going to prove to you that I don’t assume things…I know things.”
