Love Is An Action
Publication date: November 17th 2015
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Khloe Hudson is all out of everything.
All out of patience for her alcoholic father. All out of money from her summer job savings. All out of scholarship essay ideas. And all out of room in her heart for people who don’t care to see her for who she really is.
But even she has to admit that the French jerk attending her academy is starting to worm his way in just a bit.
Cash Castille couldn’t care less about what Khloe thinks she knows. None of her advanced classes have taught her that love isn’t something that can be measured or figured out using scientific methods. Actions often speak louder than words. And although he gets a rise out of driving her crazy, he can’t help but wonder when her brain will stop arguing with what their hearts already know.
When Cash drops a bomb and asks for the favor of a lifetime, Khloe reluctantly agrees because despite the terms, she needs the benefits of their arrangement. However, as Cash and Khloe navigate through their new found relationship, she can’t help but wonder if the cost of this ploy will be another expense she can’t afford to give. Her heart.

“I don’t think he will ever know how much that meant to me. That even without knowing it, he was answering the calls of my heart and not deterred by my words. My mouth may have been telling him to go but my heart…is always begging someone to stay.”
“…Sometimes you have to turn that brilliant brain off and feel, Beauté.”
“…I will take anything you give me, greedily. But don’t ever think it will be enough. Nothing will ever be enough, because every piece of yourself you give me, only makes me ravenous for more…”
“…I want to live so deep in this love that every breath of mine is full of him…”
