BLURB: 

Lia Montgomery has been my best friend since we were kids, but when she moves back to our hometown, we can’t ignore the chemistry between us. And I’ve come up with a plan to make her mine.

First on the list? Make her my roommate.  

It seems like a great idea at the time, but one look at her in those little pajama shorts and a thin tee shirt, and all I want to do is throw her over my shoulder, caveman style. 

Screw the plan. 

A simple dare changes everything between us. But when I’m challenged to do the one thing that could tear us apart forever, I realize there’s more at risk than just my heart.

EXCERPT:

Surrounded by nature, hearing the horses whinny, everything is in perfect balance. Things are going to be okay. Like any new situation, it takes some time to adjust, even if Axel and I have always understood each other, it’s something new. 

“Here you go.” Axel hands me a glass of wine and sits next to me, a beer bottle in his hand. 

“Thanks.” I take a sip, and he clears his throat loudly. “Sorry,” I smirk and shrug. We toast, and then I take a drink of the red wine as the breeze begins to cool down. 

“I know things got a little weird earlier, but I didn’t want you to feel uncomfortable,” Axel begins speaking, staring straight ahead. Unsure of what to say, I nod. If I deny it, he’ll know I’m lying. If I’m honest, there’s no turning back. I choose silence at the moment, drink more wine, and stare at the mountains. 

After a few minutes, I’ve organized my thoughts. “I wasn’t uncomfortable, but this is new territory.” It’s vague, but it isn’t a lie.

“For me, too.” He finally turns his head to catch my eyes. They’re soft and peaceful as I take in the swirl of colors, combination of amber and brown. 

We may be pretending this is a platonic living situation, but we both know there’s something deeper in the foundation of this agreement. A hope that’s blossoming. Then, why aren’t either of us confident enough to take the next step?

Happy Summer!

I love summer break almost as much as I love Thanksgiving (pumpkin pie wins, though). I hope you are all enjoying some warmer weather. It is hot here in South Florida—perfect for beach days.

As many of you know, this summer I am also releasing my sixth book. (When did that happen?!) I still get giddy when I finish a new book. It really never gets old, and part of that is thanks to all of you lovely readers. I get to share my stories with all of you. Red Lights, Black Hearts is different than my other books. It’s honest and raw. I’ve mentioned that before. I hope it makes you reflect and look at situations differently like it did for me. Mostly, I hope you connect with Sam and her story. She is a character that grows so much from beginning to end.

Red Lights, Black Hearts is set to release on July 18th. Keep an eye out for the cover reveal on June 27th. Kari from Cover to Cover Designs hit it out of the park with this one. I am also sharing an exclusive excerpt on my newsletter once my edits are back in. Don’t miss it! You can sign-up here: http://eepurl.com/bm9D0b.

Add Red Lights, Black Hearts to your TBR and check in for the cover reveal here or on any of my social media pages. I hope your summer is off to a great start, and you’re getting some great reading time in!

Teaser Excerpt~Whiskey Nights

I have been really busy these past few weeks making sure Whiskey Nights is perfect for release. I continue to fall more and more for Jake. He’s such a flirt, but he is also so kind and loving. This story has made me smile and cry. Writing it brought about a lot of emotions, and as I reread it, it still pulls at my heart-strings. Jake and Beth are definitely a hot couple, but they also have things to work through so they can achieve their happily ever after. Sometimes it’s harder than it seems. Sometimes we are tested and question our own dreams if it means giving up the person we love.

Whiskey Nights br teaser CS

This book is a realistic love story like Sweet on Wilde, with real life issues couples face and hot bedroom {or lake} scenes that will heat up your night. I am excited to share this story with all of you and hope to have a release soon. I am looking at early fall. In the meantime, I am going to share a teaser excerpt. 😉

“I got it, Dave.” Jake winks at me. “I know how she likes it.”

I take in a deep breath trying not to picture just how I would like it with him and say, “Don’t ya wish you knew.”

“I’ve got an idea or two.”

I notice Dave shake his head and pat Jake on the shoulder. He leaves him to fix my drink.

“Here you go darlin’.”

“Jake…” I warn.

“You shoot me down every time, but one day you’ll realize I’m not all talk. Until then I’ll just have to fantasize about that brief kiss. Or you can give me another one to make the memory sweeter.” His face is inches from mine, and I feel my breath catch in my ribcage.

“You’re such a flirt. You wouldn’t know what else to do, if I gave you the chance.”

“Trust me, I’d know plenty.” I watch his jaw clench and his arms flex under his t-shirt, a piece of his tattoo peeking from underneath the sleeve. What I’d do to see the entire thing. His baby blues are staring at me intently, and I squirm involuntarily. He smiles at my reaction and I curse at myself. So much for not letting him get to me.

“You tell that to all the girls?” I counteract.

“Nope. Just you, babe. You should know by now that I’m not looking for a one-night stand with you. I’m not that kinda guy.”

“Oh yeah? What are you looking for?” My own judgments about him clear in my question.

“More.”

One word. That’s all it takes to knock the air out of me. Jake and I have spent more time teasing each other then actually getting to know each other. How does he know he wants more? And how does he know he wants it with me? So much for trying to keep myself together! My entire body is betraying my emotions right now, and I have the urge to pull him in and kiss him. Experience a real kiss with him, but instead I stay silent.

“Enjoy that drink,” he says before walking down the bar to the customer who was calling out his name.

Summer lovin’

Hello lovely bookies! It’s hard to believe it is already August. This summer break has just flown by. I was rather busy with a few personal things, as well as writing a new story. When things finally calmed down, I was able to write The End on Whiskey Nights. I had some time to ponder on life, but I won’t bore you with that. Basically, I realized just how much I love what I do and how grateful I am that I can follow my dreams despite how hectic life can be. Sometimes it is easy to lose perspective on the things that make us whole. I am also very lucky to have such a great support system, whether they live near or cross country.

This summer I was also able to catch up on my reading. It felt so great to just relax and read—having the time to be able to do that. I learned that with the right balance and determination anything is possible, and so it is. I will be publishing my fifth book in September. At the beginning of last school year, I had one book published, Perfectly Imperfect. It amazes me that a year later, I have four books out for the world to read and one in queue to be released. It is still for surreal. Am I dreaming? Don’t wake me up if I am.

Whiskey Nights is book two in the Sweet on You series. This Series will probably {because you never know where life will lead} be a duet. It starts with Sweet on Wilde with Savannah and Parker’s southern, love story. Whiskey Nights follows Jake and Beth and it was fun to deeper explore these characters. Read the synopsis here:

One kiss. That’s all it takes to captivate me. Although I fight the emotions that surge through me when I feel his lips touch mine, I am too far gone. It’s impossible to hide from the truth; Jake sparks a fire that burns life into me.

Our passion ignites the southern nights, but when our wishes for the future put us on separate paths, I am forced to imagine a life without him. Fun whiskey nights turn into emotional whiskey escapes as I find myself alone and questioning what I truly want out of life—settling for less than perfect to acquire a life I imagined or chasing my happiness and giving up part of my dreams.

**This book is a standalone novel featuring characters that were introduced in Sweet on Wilde.**

My reading list this summer has included The Girl in the Comfortable Quiet by Susan Ward. This is the final installment of the Half Shell Series and the ending was perfect, but I know Ward has some twists up her sleeve with her next series.

I have also been reading the Wanted Series by Kelly Elliot and I’m in love! I’ll confess that Elliot’s books have been on my TBR for over a year. I have no idea why I hadn’t dug into them earlier, but I am so happy that I have had the time to get lost in the Texas countryside with my cowboys. I love all of them, and I am a major book whore at the moment. Of course, I’m going to have to jump to her Love Wanted in Texas Series next. My TBR keeps on growing and I am determined to read as many of them as I can this year.
