Because Of You by Maryann Morris
Quiet and reserved small-town Melody Dalton kept to herself when she started college in the big city of Baltimore, Maryland. She admired Ryder James, the heir to James & Son’s Manufacturing, from afar her first day on campus. He fit the cliché of tall, dark, and handsome easily, and no one could argue that he was the sculptured Greek god of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity on campus. Captivated by his incredible sexiness, Melody and Ryder are drawn together in ways she could only have fantasized about. Their lives quickly take a turn for the worse as someone’s out to get them. When tragedy hits not once but twice, no one can help save them except for Melody. But can she? This unique love story will have you rooting for the heroine as she finds strength within herself and captures your heart along the way. Can Melody save Ryder and herself from the dangers ahead? Has she gotten in too deep or has she finally found a place where she belongs?
