Fresh off her freshman year of college, Emelina De Sota returns home for the summer. Normally coming home wouldn't be a problem but skeletons quickly start coming out of the closet faster than Em can shove them back in. It doesn't help matters when her overprotective big brother is the boss of the local Spanish Thorns. He puts her so far out of reach that she's comfortable with it at first. But when temptation is placed just down the hall from her, Em finds slipping back into old habits is easier than she originally thought. As her world rapidly starts to turn upside down, will Em choose to risk everything for a chance at the possibility of real love or will she stick with her guns and stay with her family, with what's safe?

Book One in the Spanish Thorns Series

~ * ~

This story has a little bit of everything including the following in no particular order: romance, action, drug use, Adele, alcohol consumption, sex scenes, food, death threats, gang violence, street racing, bathroom breaks, medical problems, blood, singular point of view, kissing, cussing, guns, orange juice, and tattoos. 

This story is rated R. I struggled with this for a while, considering rating it PG-13 and placing the rather "graphic" scenes in a separate book but I believe it would take away from the story. My characters are considered adults in the eyes of the law and society and therefore do 'adult' things. For the most part, the story will be PG-13 but because I wouldn't split it, it's earned an R rating. Hope you understand.

This is incorrect, i am fluent in Spanish and the correct sentence would be déjenla sola
