Peek Inside Try Me

Marine Jeremy Addison lost in the desert outside of Vegas, hungover and banged-up. Then he's rescued by Erica Jones—his ex-best friend's sister and the girl who broke his heart. Yet while Erica wants to run her tongue along the hard, muscled planes of his body, she can't let him get too close. She's changed. But Erica never could hide herself from Jeremy, and this time around, she's ready to try him...even if it's the biggest gamble of her life.

She was off-limits…until now.

Marine Jeremy Addison is lost in the desert outside of Vegas. He’s brutally hungover, bruised and bloodied, and dehydrated as hell. Must’ve been a helluva night. The silver sports car that pulls over should have been his salvation. Insead, it’s Erica Jones—his ex-best friend’s sister…and the girl who broke Jeremy’s heart seven years ago.

While she wants to help Jeremy—and okay, maybe run her hands and tongue along the hard, muscled planes of his body—Erica’s wary of getting too close. Giving in to her libido is a bad idea. After all, she’s no longer the girl Jeremy once knew. Unfortunately, Erica never could hide herself from Jeremy, and this time around, she’s ready to try him…even if it’s the biggest gamble of her life.

Previously released on the Ever After imprint in May 2012.


"If you enjoy love stories like me this is definitely the book for you. It's amazing and it had me swooning a whole lot throughout. Jeremy is so a new book boyfriend for me and you have no idea how excited I am to find out this is the first in the Take A Chance series."--K-Books

"Diane has once again written a deep and wonderful love story involving two people you can't help but root for. Try Me is a sweet, heart-warming story about two people that were just meant to be together trying to find their way back to each other." --Kindle and Me

"I read this all in one sitting, and stayed up to 1:30 a.m. to finish it! I loved the hero, Jeremy, completely. A boy from the wrong side of the tracks and from the worst possible family background who feels he's not good enough for the women he's loved since childhood, a woman who now has secrets she believes makes her unworthy as well. " --New York Times bestselling author Laura Kaye

I’m not going to play innocent here—it was the cover! It lured me right in to this story with a grin on my face and a sparkle in my eye. Drool, drool! :) But Try Me by Diane Alberts proved to be much more than a hot cover.

Entangled Publishing has completely changed my opinion about novellas. They really are perfect for when you're looking for a quick read, especially if it's romance.

By Sarah June 12, 2012

I have definitely been on a bit of a contemporary romance kick recently and Try Me hit the spot perfectly.

I've been burnt befor ...more

This was yet another fantastic short novel by Diane Alberts! Her ability to put so much emotion into a book that takes only an hour or two to read is impeccable.
