Read an excerpt from Yours Completely by Joya Ryan

For fans of J Lynn, Jodi Ellen Malpas and Sylvia Day comes Yours Completely, an all-consuming, raw and powerful love story . . .

Lana Case knows what it feels like to be tossed aside - first by her family and then by the man she naively believed was her true love. But when Jack leaves, reconfirming that she isn't worthy of love, her world shatters. The last person Lana thought to find refuge in is an adrenaline-junky firefighter, let alone Jack's best friend. Yet Callum Malone's easy-going, playboy persona is just what she needs.

When Lana finds herself the target of a stalker who isn't going away, Callum not only welcomes her into his home, but also into his bed. Unable to deny the chemistry between them, Lana gives in and after a night of fiery passion discovers what it finally feels like to not only be cherished - but safe. Lana and Callum are falling fast, knowing they're both far out of their depth. And then Jack returns to claim the woman he left behind . . .

Addictive and unforgettable, Lana's story will seduce, surprise and stay with you. A brand new romance by the #1 Bestselling author of Break Me Slowly, the Reign series is an emotional roller coaster you'll want to keep riding forever.


I just wanted to feel something good. And Cal was beyond good. He was an escape I couldn’t get anywhere else. He was the man I wanted in so many ways, but could only have in a few. So, I’d take the few I could get. At the very least, it would still be on my terms because my grand plan of staying friends was technically still in effect. Tonight, we’d just be special friends. That was logic enough for me.

“Lana? What are you—”

I raised to my tiptoes, slid my arms around him, and drew him down for a kiss. Praying to God he’d come through like he did that first night and hold me back. Only, this time, I wasn’t letting go.

Clutching was different than reaching. And I was clutching the hell out of him.

“Lana,” he rasped against my mouth. “You’re upset and have had a hard night—”

“No excuses. Not tonight. You told me I couldn’t give them, so you can’t either. I know what I want.”

He stared at me hard, weighing my words, but I wasn’t backing down. I was mad, sad, exhausted, and revved up all at the same time. The adrenaline I had building from the height I’d just been at, tied with the shitty aspect of today, was making me sizzle like an oiled cast-iron skillet.

I needed to unleash it all, and I wanted to be with Cal because he had been there from the beginning. He didn’t let me hide, which was good, since I was looking for some control right then. Some way to take charge of the tiniest part of my world, if only for a moment.

“You told me all I had to do was ask? Tell you what I need?”

“And what is it you need?” he asked.

I pushed his chest until his legs hit the bed and he sat on the mattress. “You.”
