Blurb:

I didn’t choose the role of single dad…it chose me. I’ve been picking up the broken pieces my wife left when she walked out on my daughter and me. The last thing I’m looking for is a relationship.

Then a spunky blonde with a career filled with instability starts making rounds, making me question if I can trust another woman. My daughter isn’t the only one curious about the country star. I’m not a blind man despite how scarred my heart is. She’s gorgeous, kind, and loves my child. What more can a man ask for? 

As I get to know her, she adds sunshine into my grey life, and being with her reminds me of the man I once was. Our lives are destined to take different paths, though, and I’ll do whatever it takes to protect my daughter from the spotlight, even if it means giving up my second chance.

Aced Anthology: Because of You Prologue

I am so excited about being a part of ACED: A Charity Anthology! It’s for such a great cause, and for someone who didn’t enjoy reading while growing up (gasp! I know), it’s even more special. It’s a back to school theme, perfect for this time and to alleviate a bit of the stress currently going on with our real back to school. 

I was never good at reading, and I was very self-conscious about it. Even when I was older and we’d have to read out loud in class, I’d count to see which paragraph or page would be mine so I could read it to myself as many times as possible so I would choke and be embarrassed. And if there was a word I had no idea how to pronounce? Geez, I’d freak while waiting for my turn. 

Being able to come together with some author pals and create a collection that will support literacy in children and adults is an honor. I hope you’d help us support such a great cause. 100% of the proceeds will go to charity. 

I wrote a novella for this anthology, brand spankin’ new couple, and I’m so excited for you to read it! It’s a small town single dad romance.

I’m sharing the prologue below so you can meet Ada and Sawyer, or… Oops, I can’t say until you read the prologue! It will all make sense then. 

Prologue

Sawyer

I sit back with my buddy and drink my beer, watching the woman who’s been moving to the electric beats coming from the speakers since I arrived. She laughs and dances as if no one were watching her. Shaking her hips, luring me in. My eyes follow her as she shimmies to a group of women I assume are her friends and drags two of them by the arms.

Her long hair sways to the beat, and her smile is infectious.

“You’ve been staring at that woman for twenty minutes. Go dance with her.” My friend, Emmet, says with a cocky smile.

“Nah,” I shake my head. I drink my beer and keep watching her with curiosity. “I’ll be moving soon anyway,” I add as an afterthought.

“So?” Emmet’s eyebrows dip as he stares at me as if I’m crazy. “It’s just a dance. Besides, it’s not like Springville is that far from here.”

It’s not about the distance from Nashville, my current home, to Springville, where I’ll be moving to at the end of the summer, but more so the fact that I have a seven-year-old son, River, who counts on me to be the stable one in our home. A relationship, hell, a date, at this point, would just add to the current of change flooding our lives.

“Too much going on to think about a woman,” I finally reply.

“One dance.” Emmet holds up a finger. “As a farewell. We both know you won’t be out again before you leave.”

He’s right. This is a rare night out for me. Usually, I’m with River, spending Friday nights together, watching sports recaps and eating pizza. Doing guy stuff, as he calls it.

I smile as I think about my son, and then abruptly stop when the woman I’ve been eyeing looks my way. Her eyes lock on mine. I can’t tell the shade from here, but I suddenly have the urge to know what color they are.

Wordlessly, I drop my beer on the bar and walk over to her, hands in my pockets. She watches me approach, appraising me from head to toe before a slow smile curves her lips, and she moves her hips in front of me.

I smirk, staring into her eyes, discovering they’re a hypnotizing blue, and begin dancing with her. My hands on her hips. Her hands on my shoulders. We move together as if it weren’t our first meeting.

“What’s your name?” I lean in and whisper, smiling when she shivers.

I look back at those baby blues with a grin.

The woman chuckles shyly, a contrast to the seductive smile she was giving me a moment ago. “Amanda Bynes,” she throws out.

I laugh and shake my head. “Hell, then I’m Justin Bieber.”

“Must be hard going around town without getting some hate thrown your way.”

“Could say the same for you.”

“Eh,” she shrugs. Spinning around and coming back to me, she continues talking. “It’d be an odd pairing.”

I nod, wrapping my arm around her lower back to bring her closer, and we move together to the beat spilling from the speakers. When the song changes to something smoother, I keep her close and guide the dance to something more sensual.

Amanda Bynes’s lips part as her eyes stare into mine. I lean in, feeling her faint breath on her chin before tipping my head down and kissing her, stealing her breath, taking what I can from this stranger who lured me in.

Her hands scrape my scalp, and I cradle her jaw, sweeping my tongue against hers. Her kiss is sweet and tempting, a deadly combination as I scramble how to get some time alone with her while warring with myself that I have a son to get home to soon.

My mystery woman leans back, cutting the kiss shorter than I’d like and leaving me hard. Her body pressed against mine gives me a preview of how good we’d fit together if I could take her home. One night to satisfy this need burning through me.

Suddenly, everything turns chaotic when her friends approach, laughing and eyeing me as they drag her away. It happens so fast, I don’t realize I’m standing alone on the dance floor until Emmet comes up to me, clapping my shoulder.

I’m pretty sure her real name is not Amanda Bynes. That would be a horrific coincidence. I could just imagine people’s faces when she introduces herself.

“Ready to head home?”

“Fuck, yeah.” I run a hand through my hair. It’s probably best this way.

What to Read If You Love Friend to Lovers Romance

Friends to lovers romance is one of my absolute favorite tropes! I won’t hesitate to read a book if it’s friends to lovers. There’s something about the building tension, watching the characters move their relationship from friends to lovers as they figure out what they’re feeling and questioning if it’s worth the risk of their friendship. HINT: It always is.

I am all for strong foundations in relationships, and I feel like having a friendship established helps create that foundation in a new relationship.

It’s not only my favorite trope to read but also to write. If you like to read friends-to-lovers romance books like me, then you’ll love the following books on this list. I hope you enjoy them! I’d love to hear your thoughts after you read them!

Bonus, they’re available in Kindle Unlimited for those of you who read through the subscription.

Escape into a good book

Times are hard. The world feels like we’re living out a Sci-Fi movie (I can’t be the only one that thinks this, right?), and it’s easy to get wrapped up in the fear of all this.

I hope to do the same to readers who read my books—provide a safe place you want to escape to for a little while, complete with laughs, heartfelt moments, and happily ever afters.

It’s true, we can’t run from reality, but we can enjoy the perks of our imagination for some time, and reading is the best way for me to do that, personally.

I’ve been hard on myself

I’ve been hard on myself. I’ve been telling others and myself that this is a time to be patient with ourselves, show compassion, and practice love. And I have more so than in the past, but some days it’s more difficult. I’ve been saying it’s time to just be, reflect, journal, sing, dance, meditate, bake, cook. Do anything that you don’t allow yourself to do when we’re “too busy”.

But this week was hard. Having a release during a global pandemic is more stressful than on any other given day when the world is functioning “normally”. Yesterday, I was allowing the weight and uncertainty to take over. I was wallowing. I felt vulnerable. (I hate admitting this). But then I realized, I’m not alone. We’re all going through shifts and changes as we speak. That sense of community, even if silent solidarity, gave me the push I needed.

I woke up refreshed, positive, trusting this journey I’m on. It’s all we can do. This moment isn’t about controlling outcomes or situations (if we ever truly are in control), but simply being, living, breathing.

I share this so you know we’re in this together. We’re all united in this, and I’m here to tell you I get how it feels to feel lost. I’ve been there. Often. I’m also here to tell you this is temporary. We’re allowed to feel what we do, yet we have the power to overcome it. Even when it seems impossible. We’re strong and we have each other for support. If you ever want to chat, shoot me an e-mail. I believe now more than ever we need to come together and lift each other.

“This too shall pass.”

 

Make You Mine is LIVE!

I am so excited to share my new release with you! Make You Mine, a hate-to-lovers, small town romance is now available and free with Kindle Unlimited! This slow burn romance will have you smiling and falling in love while reading it.

Sneak Peek:

Eli’s eyebrows rise on his head. “How much do you know about working a barn?” 

“You remember my brother is Finn, right? Gimme that.” I step forward, grabbing the pitchfork, and fill the stall with hay. 

“Goodness, that’s hot,” Eli murmurs behind me. 

I turn to look at him over my shoulder with a wink. “You just gonna stand there and stare?” 

“I’d much rather do something else, but I won’t make my horse starve.” 

I laugh and shake my head. “You’re bad news, Hastings,” I tease.

“Oh, but it feels so good.” He presses his body to my back as a hand sneaks to my stomach, holding me in place. Eli drops a kiss on my neck, and my entire body heats in reaction.

BLURB:

I’ve had a fifteen-year-plan since high school—get a degree in hospitality, learn the ropes working for a big hotel, before opening my own bed and breakfast. 

Eli Hastings isn’t part of that plan. The sexy-as-sin contractor I hired to renovate my bed and breakfast is the kind of man I’ve learned to stay away from. 

I can’t stand him most of the time, especially when he’s interfering in my dreams like a know-it-all. That doesn’t mean I don’t imagine what it would feel like to have him pressed against me, but those fantasies are my best kept secret. 

I try to hate him, but one kiss is enough to give in to my desires. Eli challenges me to live outside of my box, until one major deviation in my plan is too big to ignore. I refuse for anything to stand in the way of my dream, even if it causes me to break my own heart.
