Caught in Us by Kacey Shea is now live!
“I can’t be the one to rescue you. You have to save yourself.“
I never expected Alicia Martin to walk back into my life. Not after the way she left. Not after her letter. Yet here she is, more alluring than ever, and with a secret that flips my world on its axis.
Three years ago I would have done anything to be with her, but now things are different. Complicated. I have a life here in Richmond, one I’m proud of and worked hard to build.
That doesn’t mean I’ve given up hope.
If anything, she’s restored my belief in second chances. The last time we were together, I gave her plenty of reasons to run. This time, I’ll convince her to stay.
Caught in Us is book two in Chase and Alicia’s duet
and should be read after Caught in the Chase.

Excerpt from Caught in Us:
“You’re a real piece of work. I see some things never change.” She jerks the truck door open, jumps out, and turns to leave me with one last insult. “And you’re still an ass.” She slams the door and stomps toward the garage keypad, jamming her fingers against the numbers as if they’ve personally offended her.
“And you’re still stubborn at hell,” I grumble, yanking my door open. I should calm down. Take a moment to center my thoughts. But the energy pulsing through my veins and the air rushing in my ears shoves away all good sense. Who the hell does she think she is, coming back into my life unannounced? Twisting everything upside down!
Climbing from the truck cab, I ignore the boxes and crates in the back and stomp over to where she stands, arms crossed and foot tapping as the garage door lifts.
“Hey! We’re not done yet.” Not with this conversation. Not by a long shot. I don’t know what comes over me. Or why she looks so damn good when she’s this mad. But I close the space between us with quick strides, crowding her personal space.
She spins at my approach, fury in her eyes. Only she must not expect me to stand so close and the gasp that escapes her parted lips sounds exactly like the sounds she used to make when we made love. “I’m not doing this right now,” she threatens, taking a step back. Her spine hits the wall. Her gaze drops to my lips.
“Alicia,” I practically growl.
“What do you want from me?” The question leaves her lips a whisper. Taunting. Tempting. Pulling me into her universe. I can’t fight it, but really, I don’t even try. When it comes to her, I’m both lost and found.
My lips crash to hers, swallowing her next gasp. She tastes good. Her lips just as I remember. The anger inside my chest is still there, but with every brush of my lips it morphs and fades to a different feeling. Passion. Heat. Desire. My hands grip her waist, my fingers digging into her flesh through the fabric of her jeans. I press her harder against the wall, capturing her moans and savoring this moment.
Because I know it won’t last.
She’s going to shove me away.
She’ll run again. She always will.

Three years earlier after a whirlwind romance and a setback that neither Chase nor Alicia saw coming she decided the best course of action for both of them was to distance herself from him and the situation. She is back in town for her best friend’s wedding to face everyone she left behind and even if she is no longer the same woman her feelings for Chase haven’t diminished.
Chase is no longer the same man and is content with the new life he has created for himself until Alicia comes back into town and has him second guessing his choices and his life. The chemistry and connection between them is stronger than ever but is it enough to not only overcome the past but the secrets she holds as well?
Chase and Alicia take us on an emotional journey as they try to make peace with the past so that they can have a future together. They have both made mistakes and only they can decide if their love is strong enough to survive all the challenges they are facing.
