In Kristen Ashley’s first anthology, readers will find three short stories and two novellas taking them back to characters and series in the Kristen Ashley universe.
No Clue, a short story - Visit with Joe and Vi from At Peace of The ’Burg series and learn how Joe breaks up a fight between his sons, what Ryker’s up to and why, exactly, his wife Violet has no clue.
The Stars Aligned, a novella - The long-awaited love story of Hap and Luci. Introduced in Heaven and Hell , readers learned, after a heartbreaking journey through grief, Luci was ready to take another chance at love. But Hap was adhering to “the code” between brothers, unwilling to betray his dead friend Travis by falling for Travis’s widow. Further, Hap can’t quite believe a beauty like Luci could fall for a normal guy like Hap. But for Luci and Hap the heart can’t be denied. Especially when the stars align.
The Favor, a short story - Deacon and Cassidy from Deacon of the Unfinished Hero series go back to their favorite cabin at Glacier Lily, and there, Cassie asks her husband a favor. He’ll give her anything she wants. Including this.
More Than Everything, a novella - Readers left Diesel, Maddox and Molly at a crossroads at the end of The Greatest Risk of the Honey series. Maddox and Molly were all in with their commitment to their unconventional love triangle. But Diesel was letting the pressures and prejudice of family and society sink under his skin, making him hold himself distant from the man he loved. Can Maddox and Molly lead Diesel fully into their lives and give him more than everything?
Rock Chick Renewal, a short story - Tod has been planning Rock Chick weddings for years. He’s got a new one on his hands. And it’s not what he expected.
Reading Kristen’s Loose Ends for me is the literary equivalent of watching my favourite band play all of the songs that are so close to my heart.
From the very beginning in No Clue,Joe and Vi show that their spark hasn’t dimmed a bit. They are still as wild and as deeply in love as ever. And it’s one of the most gratifying (and hysterical) stories in the collection.
He’d never been with a woman as long as he had with Vi. He didn’t think about it, but if he had, he would have figured, naturally, shit would settle and it would be about grocery runs and oil changes and occasional bickering with some fights thrown in and a lot of TV watching.
The Favor is the perfect example of everything that I love about Kristen’s characters. With Deacon and Cassie, she manages to make me laugh out loud while keeping the heat at white hot levels.
Absolute swoony perfection!
“I’ll also give you another kid,” he went on.
More Than Everything is nothing less than an emotional juggernaut. Diesel, Maddox and Molly’s story is not only blistering hot, but it’s also poignant in so many unexpected ways.
Kristen weaves threads of equality and acceptance right into the heart of this love story. It’s as tender as it is tough. And it’s an unforgettable heart squeeze.
“We’re gonna put a ring on Molly’s finger, D. We’re gonna commit in front of God and family and everybody. We’re gonna make babies with our girl. We’re gonna build a family,” Maddox declared. “And if those assholes aren’t all in with that, they’re not in at all.”
Loose Ends is the best kind of celebration for KA fans. Old friends mingle effortlessly with the new and everyone is invited…

About The Author ~
Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.
Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.
