In love and life, there is no such thing as a safe secret.

For the first time in her life, Hindley Hagen has found unconditional love. As attorney and sports agent for pro athlete, Rory Gregor, she's worked hard to help rebuild his reputation. This time, he's won more than just a gold medal, he's captured her heart.

Now she's trapped, caught in the snare of a man playing a deadly game. She must choose – protect the one man who's made her come alive or risk losing everything she's worked hard for, including him. Hindley must learn, in love and life, there is no such thing as a safe secret.

Trust isn't something that comes naturally to Rory Gregor. Even his achievements as a multi-gold medalist in extreme sports can't wash away the insecurities from a childhood filled with abuse. But Hindley's devotion to him personally and professionally has given him hope. Will his self-doubt drive her away?

As their need to protect one another grows to escalating heights with deadly consequences, will Hindley and Rory finally find the future together they deserve? Or will they discover the one thing that could destroy them both is each other?

About the Author

In addition to being an author, I’m also a wife and mom. My family lives in the Live Music Capital of the World, Austin, Texas.

We began homeschooling our daughter in seventh grade (she’s off to college now, boo hoo). I’d never enjoyed English in high school, but once she and I started language arts lessons, I realized I was actually pretty good at crafting words and stories.

In January of 2012, after listening to me blather on and on about the millions of book ideas floating around in my head, my daughter finally reached her limit and said, “Just write it Mom!” They were the four most important words to my new career and a catalyst for everything I’ve done since. I can’t thank her enough for her motivating words and her belief that I could do more with my talents.

I am blessed to have a family that supports all my wild and crazy ideas. They give me the time and the encouragement I need to write and publish the stories that still float around in my head every single day.

I hope you enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. I’ve always said, as long as people keep reading, I’ll keep writing.

When a book makes you cry it's a really good book. I loved Rorey and Hindley's story, I laughed and cried. These two people had an awesome story, there were great sex scenes but there was also a great love story. They had to over come so much to be together and with everyone trying to tear them apart they still survived.

Hindley and Rory are finally a couple! Rory had given her the unconditional love she had been looking for. She helped him make a comeback, securing endorsement and even a commercial in his behalf. Both of them were happy, and just waiting for the right moment for the both of them to announce their relationship. Their reputation would suffer, most especially hers. Even though Rory didn’t like it one bit, he agreed. Just as when everything seems to be perfect for Hindley and Rory – an envious rival goes into a full-blast blackmail scheme that can ruin not just their careers but their relationship as well. Hindley gets too choose – to protect the man she loves and cared so much or risk everything she had worked so hard for, which still includes him… She was caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, a vile trap that had me on the edge of my seat as well!!! Rory Gregor had been through enough from his past for him to be careful on whom to trust. The abuse he got from home, had scarred him for life – leaving him with insecurities and self-loathing. But now, he had finally caught the heart of Hindley Hagen. Despite knowing his secret, she stayed with him, and even helped him deal with the problem. He’s skating better than ever, and securing a lot of endorsement along the way. But then he felt than something is OFF. Just as when he thought he had broken all the walls surrounding her heart, she puts them back again. He feels she’s hiding something from him… And I thought that was the only secret. Imagine my surprise when I was treated with a whole lot more in between the novel. I didn’t want to stop reading, I wanted to know how this thing would end. There were just too many people involve, exposing the secrets would be too much risk – so when everything was outed: hell broke loose. My heart ached until it broke, and I wonder if everything would ever be okay after. It took one SUPER GRAND Gesture for him to get back into her good graces – him, professing his love, his apology for everyone to hear. But it didn’t stop there – I know right?! – just as when my heartbeat is about to go back to normal, another problem occurred, and it made Hindley spiraled down. Would his love be enough to bring her back? My heart is in serious trouble all throughout reading this – but all those shift in my beats was worth it when I finally reach the ending. Everything that they have been through, even their past is nothing compared to where the both of them are by the final chapter. I very happy with the ending, and of course, I can’t wait to read Dana’s story! The blurb says – dramatic conclusion: How dramatic is DRAMATIC, exactly? I expected sooooo much from the conclusion of the book 1 of X-Treme Boys Series, thank goodness I wasn’t disappointed! It was filled with so much twist and turns, one HUGE secret divulge on top of the other, the ultimate betrayal, and not to mention the most dramatic reconciliation ever!!!! And because of this, you, KAY MANIS, gets a spot on my favorite authors list! ¿ARC Copy was given in exchange for an honest review.¿

Book Worms was given this book as an ARC for an honest review. We gave this book 5 amazing Stars. Lindsay Thibodaux a Book Worms Reviewer left this review. Thank you Lindsay.  In the dramatic, page turning, and heart wrenching conclusion of Skater Boy, Rory Gregor has everything he has worked so hard to overcome.  He is getting back on top of the Pro Am skating world the unconditional love of his beautiful lawyer/agent, but can there be something in their past and present to competent derail all they have worked to accomplish.   Hindley Hagen has worked diligently to help get Rory endorsements and deals he so deserves.  She will do anything to help him overcome his self-deprecating ways and keep his secret of illiteracy.  Her success is becoming known as an agent/lawyer and she finds herself being pulled to protect herself, her professional career and the man that has truly and unconditionally stolen her heart.  Rory's rival and archenemy Axel has found out not just his secret of not being able to read, but also loving and sleeping with his lawyer.  He is blackmailing her to help his career or ruin not just her career, but also the trust she has gained gained in Rory.   Can she hold it all together or will something or someone finally ruined what they have?  Secrets are finally revealed and will they tear them apart for good or will they come back to haunt them and leave devastating circumstances.    I could not put this book down, Kay has done it again, with this conclusion to this great series! I was captivated once again. Thank you Kay for your amazing series. And I am looking forward to reading what you have coming up next<3

oh my its awesome to finish reading about Hindley and Rory and find out how they continued to deal with the secrets of their past. This book is a great read and the way it's written makes the characters feel real. You feel their pain, pleasure, and depression. Keep the tissues handy for this book. I would suggest this read to anyone that enjoys romance. And make sure you buy both books because you will want the whole of the story. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
