The 44 CHAPTERS Spin-Off Series
A 44 Chapters Novel | Book 1
Because BB Easton had so much fun writing her best-selling, award-winning memoir, 44 CHAPTERS ABOUT 4 MEN, she decided to tell the steamy backstories for each of her four men. SKIN is Knight's book—a gritty, taboo, forbidden love story overflowing with '90s nostalgia, dark humor, and heart-wrenching teenage angst. It is based on a true story.
In 1997, Ronald “Knight” McKnight was the meanest, most misunderstood boy at Peach State High School...perhaps on the entire planet. Knight hated everyone, except for me, BB—the perky, quirky punk chick with the locker next to his.
I, on the other hand, liked everybody except for Knight. I was scared sh*tless of him, actually. All I wanted was to marry Prince Eric-lookalike and king of the Peach State High punk scene, Lance Hightower, and have a million of his babies.
Unfortunately for me, Knight was even better at getting his way than I was, and once he got under my skin, my life would never be the same.
A 44 Chapters Novel | Book 2
Because BB Easton had so much fun writing her best-selling, award-winning memoir, 44 CHAPTERS ABOUT 4 MEN, she decided to tell the steamy backstories for each of her four men. SPEED is Harley's book—a gritty, 90s-era love triangle overflowing with dark humor, intense heat, and tangible teen angst. It is based on a true story.
Ronald “Knight” McKnight was Obsessive. Possessive. Downright psychopathic. But that didn’t stop me from falling in love with him…or falling apart when he joined the Marines. When he left, Knight told me to “find someone better,” but I didn’t.
I found Harley instead.
Harley James was a fun, flirty, tattooed mechanic whose face was as angelic as his secrets were sinful. He taught me how to live again. How to laugh again. But would he teach me how to love again?
Over Knight’s dead body.
A 44 Chapters Novel | Book 3
Because BB Easton had so much fun writing her best-selling, award-winning memoir, 44 CHAPTERS ABOUT 4 MEN, she decided to tell the steamy backstories for each of her four men. STAR is Hans's book—a whirlwind rock star romance based on true events.
In 1999, I met my Prince Charming. He was the tall, tattooed, wickedly handsome bass player for the up-and-coming rock band, Phantom Limb. But, more importantly, he was mine. I knew it the moment he flashed me that shy, dimpled smile.
And he knew it too.
Hansel “Hans” Oppenheimer wore his heart on one sleeve and scrawled lyrics about me on the other. Unlike the losers of my past, Hans showered me with tenderness, took me places I’d never been before, and showed me the type of all-consuming love I’d thought only existed in fairy tales.
But, like any good fairy tale, my road to happily ever after was paved with challenges, and right when I least expected it…it forked.
In 1999, I met my Prince Charming.
In 2000, I met my soul mate.
A 44 Chapters Novel | Book 4
Because BB Easton had so much fun writing her best-selling, award-winning memoir, 44 CHAPTERS ABOUT 4 MEN, she decided to give each of her four men his own steamy stand-alone. SUIT is Ken's book—the hilarious, heart-warming tale of how BB finally got over her bad-boy phase and found her happily ever after with ... gasp ... a guy in a tie.
“Since when are you into guys in ties? You only like guys who look like they rob guys in ties. At gunpoint.”
It was true. By 2003, my type had been well-established. There might as well have been a giant sign on my heart that said, Good Guys Need Not Apply.
That is exactly why I had to friend-zone Ken Easton. The man was a former football star, smelled like fresh laundry instead of stale cigarettes, and had more ties in his closet than tattoos on his knuckles. Pssh. BOR-ING.
But the more I got to know my hunky study buddy, the more questions I came away with. Questions like: Why doesn’t he date? Why does he avoid human touch? Why does he hate all things fun and wonderful?
The psychology student in me became obsessed with getting inside Ken’s head while the spoiled brat in me became obsessed with getting inside his heart.
In 2003, I found the one thing I loved more than bad boys…
A good challenge.
