Hollywood screenwriter Samantha Dekker spent the last year picking up the pieces after her husband's suicide. Along with grief, guilt, and tabloid hell, she's had to watch helplessly as the film industry slammed its doors in her face. Now Sam has the rarest of Hollywood opportunities—a second chance…working with the one man she swore never to see again. Hunktastic A-lister Gage Cutler knows that Sam blamed him for his part in her husband's death. Still, Sam is the one woman he can never forget. All he wants is a second chance of his own—to prove he's not the player she remembers. And Malibu is the perfect backdrop to make a girl swoon. Except they're not alone. Someone is watching Sam and Gage's steamy off-screen romance with the most dangerous of intentions…


“There’s something between us. Has been since the night we met.” Sam closed her eyes, but when he slid her hands around his neck, she snapped them open. He stepped in, crowding her, gathering her body into his arms and up against his length. His chest rose and fell in rapid succession—in time with hers. Lips, full and wide, hovered over hers for a beat, and he whispered. “Admit it.” His warm breath wafted over her skin and goose bumps bloomed down her neck and chest. God yes. She was ready for a fling, for some fun with a gorgeous man who’d taken up way too much of her brain space. She didn’t want to wait any longer, so she leaned in, stopping a hair’s breadth from his lips and whispered, “Kiss me.” His quick grin and squeeze of her hips with his hands teased. He barely brushed his mouth over hers, leaving a tingle behind. His heart thundered against her breasts, and the most delicious sensation rolled low in her belly. Finally. Closing her eyes, she closed the distance between the heat of their wanting lips. Gage brushed his lips against hers, absorbing her, pulling her tighter against him, releasing a rush of heat from her center through her limbs. Something akin to breathing again washed over her. She coiled her arms about his head and shifted higher in his embrace, kissing him back with all the pent-up woman she’d shoved down for so long. He moaned low in his throat, and a surge of power tightened her grip around his neck. Yes. This is what she wanted, what she needed. Gage lifted her to the counter, and with a wide sweep of his hand, odds and ends crashed to the floor. The action, raw and hurried, called to a part of her she just realized existed. He wedged his hips between her knees, and she wrapped her legs about his waist, celebrating his lack of restraint. “God, Sam, I’ve wanted to taste you forever,” he whispered against her skin as he brushed his lips along her jaw and down her neck. Her head fell back, and she kneaded his shoulders, lost as fingers of the most delicious fire licked up her spine and spread along her skull. She couldn’t breathe, yet he was all the air she needed. She couldn’t think, yet he filled her mind. He found his way back to her mouth, his lips gliding in a whispered caress as his tongue slid against her own. She pressed into him, desperate to get closer, losing herself in the feeling of being desired. Someone pounded on the door and they froze. “The rain’s stopped. Five minutes until shooting, Mr. Cutler.” “Fuck.” Sam swallowed, wanting to giggle, but the effort would cost too much. “You aren’t finished?” He pulled back just enough for her to see his eyes narrow with an intensity she felt to her toes. “I’m not nearly finished.”

Malibu Betrayals is  a second chance romance story with a little bit of suspense/mystery thrown in. It was the perfect blend of what I feel you coud find in Hollywood behind the scenes among the elite. 

Gage and Sam met at an inopportune time in their lives, and Sam walked away, knowing she was doing the right thing for herself(at the time).  Years later, with circumstances changed, they find themselves together again. This time, Gage is ready to go the distance to win over Sam and keep her. Sam is in the process of rediscovering herself, and its hard for her to see Gage's genuine respect and insterest in her. It's hard to grasp something she's never had before. 

But things are not that simple. Sam is being harrassed by someone and threats are made. So not only are Gage and Sam trying to work around a relationship, they are also trying to figure out who's behind the mysterious "attacks" Sam has been facing. 

MK Meredith has woven a beautiful love story, while also sucking you in with the bit of mystery. I think I spent as much time trying to figure things out myself as I did rooting for Gage and Sam to come together without further issue.  There was drama, mystery, sweetness, and also a wonderful sensuality leading to some steamy scenes.  

I look forward to what MK Meredith has to offer the book world in the future. If the fabulous Malibu Betrayals has anything to show for it, future readers are going to have a new favorite author to add to their ranks.
