About Beautifully Done
Diagnosis: Borrowed time
Treatment: Trust
Prognosis: Beautifully Done

Asher Craig drives fast, flies high, and screws hard. But make no mistake, he’s a gentleman.

He learned way too young that we’re all on borrowed time. Fair or unfair, you only get one ride. He vows to live for the moment because it’s the only time he owns. The past is beyond his control and the future may not exist. With his only loyalties being his family, he thrives for that edge where plunging over is always in the realm of possibility.

When a beautiful familiar face tilts his axis, he re-examines everything and realizes that second chances are overrated and a lifetime of firsts are irreplaceable. In the end, it’s not her medical degree but his trust that needs to prove that the ride together is worth it ... until it’s Beautifully Done.

***Author's note***
Contains spoilers from Beautifully Awake. We highly recommend reading Chase and Lili's story first. For readers 18+

Rachel's 5 Star Review


 OMG...Asher Evan Craig, I think I love you! Ok, in Beautifully Awake we met Asher, Chases best friend, and I was crushing hard...but in Beautifully Done we get to meet ALL of Ace, and Oh is there a lot to meet!
Once again the ladies who make up Riley Mackenzie did a smash up job with their awesome characterization. Asher and Talia are such wonderful well rounded characters. They are so down to earth and lovable. The way Riley Mackenzie(s) write is so easy to read, everything flows so smoothly and the thing I love best is there isn't all the back and forth of different point of views. They just tell the story! There's a lot of different plots going on, so I don't feel the book ever got real slow, there was a time or two while Asher and Talia were dating that slowed a little bit, but not enough to complain about the story falling off. Please, if you feel that it's slow for you, Please keep reading, I promise you will be blown away. I was bawling, huge heaving sobs! Even sitting here, writing this review, almost a week later, I am still tearing up just thinking about it. It is SO freaking emotional, and Oh damn, Tack's speech, holy hell...
Seriously, Beautifully Done was just that, so freaking Beautifully Done!

I mean really, who wouldn't LOVE this?
"Just a random observation. Do you have a nickname for every woman in your life?  Suzie Q, beautiful, gorgeous, sweetheart.  Just wondering?  Not that hey "you" isn't endearing."
Fuck me, my woman was jealous. She tried to play it off by adding a little sass but failed.  She asked so I intended to answer.
Standing, I cupped her chin along the way, wanting, no needing her eyes when I spelled it out.  "First of all, Suzie Q doesn't count. it's practically her name.  I call my mother and sisters beautiful because they are. Lil is gorgeous because, well she is, but more importantly, what she did to pull Chase from his hell, it was nothing short of awe-inspiring.  As for sweetheart, it's generic, means nothing.  I'm not going to lie and I'm sure as hell not proud of it, but I've had a lot of sweethearts share my bed.  But none of them were you..  You... you are the most stunning woman I've ever laid eyes on.  Sexy doesn't begin to cut it.  Passionate, confident,  The fierceness you love your son with levels me.  All I have to do is hear your beautiful voice and I'm done...I'm done.  You've tilted my axis and given me every first that matters, but more than anything, you make me want to hold on tight and live this crazy ride--with you.  Only you.  You crawled under my skin so long ago I can't remember a time it wasn't about you.  So yeah, you is the only endearment that fits until you're ready for me to call you wife.  You say the word, that title's yours."
OMFG,  sniffle**  sniffle**  swoon....


Pain pierced my shin and I jerked back. “What the hell was that for?” I bitched at the half pint spit-fire, sporting auburn highlights this week. Sierra changed her hair color as often as her shoes. And my luck, tonight she was in some pointy fucking boots.

“You have a freakin’ plane? For real? You never told me you had a plane! Lil, did you know Green Giant had his own private plane. And he flies it?”  

“Hold up, Green Giant?” I questioned, trying to get a word in edgewise. These two women spoke their own estrogen dialect. It could get out of control, especially when Sierra went off on a tangent. And there it was, with both hands in the air, her drink--which I assumed was a margarita--splashed down the front of her light grey sweater dress. She didn’t flinch. Sam, on the other hand, jumped to pat the excess liquid off her c cups.

Cant. Make. This. Shit. Up.

            Chase buried his head in his wife’s shoulder to hide his laughter, Lil bit her fingernail, and Dodd feigned a coughing fit.

            In her oblivion, Sierra manually removed the red-headed beauty’s hand from her chest. “I’m good, no really. Besides, it’s all padding, babe. Breastfeeding sucks the life from the girls.” If Dodd shook his head one more time he was in serious jeopardy of herniating a neck disc.

“What part don’t you get?” Sierra focused back on me. “You’re eyes resemble those crazy contacts models wear and you’re a freaking giant.” Her contorted facial expression screamed, ‘Duh.’

“We’re about the same height, sweetheart.” I thumbed toward the two men standing on either side of me.

            “Yeah, but he’s a quarterback.” She pointed to Chase. “He’s a linebacker.” She air kissed Dodd. “And you’re the sick ass wide receiver. You just look taller. Just cause.”

            Since when did she follow football? My cell started ringing and luckily I didn’t have to find out. “On that note, excuse me.” I fished it out of my black suit pants and turned my back on the crew. It was her. My balls did a happy dance. Fuck it, I was so screwed.

            “Hey you.”

About the Authors
Yep. That's an “s.” There are two of us! We’re East coast girls separated by Long Island Sound who met in Physician Assistant School and have been besties ever since. We can safely say that thirteen miles of water does not get in the way because we talk or text, no exaggeration, at least 150 times a day. No, really, we do—about everything and nothing. Shockingly, we never (we mean never) run out of things to say. Umm, ever. We definitely laugh A LOT and we’re a tad sarcastic. And if we’re being totally honest, one or two people might have, on occasion, used our names and ‘dramatic’ in the same sentence. But it’s hard to trust the sources since they married us. It only took twelve years, two husbands, five kids, two dogs, and a two-week vacation in Cape Cod later to decide the romance world needed a splash of medicine. Write what you know. So you can easily find us at 4 o'clock on Bank Street beach with a glass of cold Prosecco brainstorming. And guaranteed if we bump into you, literally, it’s only because our iPhones are glued to our hands (totally out of our control) either writing or editing our next novel (and yes, it is possible to do from your iPhone, we mastered it … damn those straight quotations). When we are not working on our book or reading the latest angsty romance on our kindles, you basically name it and we have it going on. Soccer, lacrosse, golf, swimming, dance, gymnastics, football, chess, baseball, basketball, skiing, ice skating, school, homework, and more school. Oh yeah, did we forget to mention our careers in medicine? Needless to say, we realized fast that something had to go, so we opted for sleep. It’s completely overrated (yet so AMAZING) and delirium makes everything funnier. Good thing we share a brain and can pretty much complete each other’s sentences (definitely weird, we know). So that’s our story, who we are … just add AUTHORS to the list!
love 2
