Praise for Promise You

It’s always scary as an author to put a new book out into the world. We know it will be criticized, loved, read and re-read. We never know how it will be accepted until it’s placed in the hands of readers, and I am so grateful for the reviews I’ve received for Promise You. It makes me happy beyond words that you love my country musicians and southern gentlemen book boyfriends as much as I do!

Read below for the praise Promise You has received from readers. If you’ve already read it, let me know what you thought of Reese and Dex’s story in the comments, and I’d love for you to write a review in your retailer of choice!

About the book:

She wants to be friends. I want more.

I’ve had my eyes set on her for months. The gorgeous brunette captured my attention when I first saw her and stole my heart when I met her.

Making it in the music industry has taken its toll on me, chipping away at my confidence and patience. The one thing that keeps me going is having Reese by my side. I’m determined to show her how good we can be together, even if she continues to pretend there’s nothing between us.

One night changes everything, giving me the only thing I’d want more than a career in country music—her.

“You look beautiful.”

“Thanks. You don’t look too bad yourself,” she winks and orders a martini. “Do you want a beer?” She turns to look my way while the bartender waits.

“I’m going with whiskey tonight.” Reese raises her eyebrows, and I chuckle. “Need something stronger than beer if I’m going to be standing next to you in that dress all night, darlin’.” The bartender bites down her smile, watching our exchange before making our drinks.

“Dex,” she warns.

“Yeah, I know.” I raise my arms, palms facing her. “Just friends.”

“Yeah,” she sighs and grabs her martini. Once I have my drink, Reese links her arm with mine, and we make rounds. “Isn’t this amazing? One day you’ll have an event like this, I just know it.” Her encouragement is welcomed at a time like this when I feel like I may never get to this point in my career.

“Yeah, maybe.” I don’t miss the defeat in my voice.

“Hey,” she stops walking, pulling me to her by the arm she’s holding. “You’re really good. One of the best I’ve heard in a long time, and I don’t just say that because you’re one of my best friends. I mean it. I’ve been surrounded in this industry since my brother was playing in Riot, just like you. I know how hard it is, I’ve met musicians in the past. Your voice is unique.”

“Thanks, Reese.” I lift a shoulder, wanting to drop the subject in a public place.

“I mean it, Dex.” I nod in silence and look away, pretending to take in the atmosphere.

The live music starts, singers congratulating Rebel Desire as they perform a couple of songs. The fans go wild for all the talent spending their evening with us.

“Dance with me,” I grab Reese’s empty glass and place it on the bar. Everyone else around us is dancing to the music, so there’s no excuse that people will talk or get the wrong idea.

Just when I think she’s going to refuse, she puts her arm around me and begins to sway to the soft music. For a minute, all is right in the world. The worries of making it in this industry, the envy of not having the success others do, it all fades away the second Reese wraps her arms around me and moves to the beat.

I may have fucked around a lot in my life, but after meeting Reese and spending time with her, I’m sure I’d never want anyone else but her. If only I can make her see how good we’d be together.

I remember the first time I saw her, weeks before I actually met her. She was at Riot, laughing and drinking with friends. Her laugh reached me through the crowd, drawing my attention to her. Her confidence danced to the rhythm of the song I was performing. After that, she’d come in on her own some nights, and I’d watch her while I sang songs she could’ve inspired.

Women like Reese, hell, there are no other women like Reese. She’s in a league of her own—gorgeous, funny, and independent.

Signing fun and book love!

Hi bookies! I just got done with Just Another Book Signing this weekend and had a BLAST! Jill from Love Affair with Fiction and Yessi Smith put together a great event. It was so great meeting new people and hanging out with friends! Signings are always bittersweet because I love seeing my friends and meeting new ones, but it’s always sad to leave or see them leave in my case this weekend. I am, however, so grateful to have finally met so many people this weekend and for the opportunity to spend time with some of my favorite people. 

There are so many more people than pictured below that I am so happy to have met in person! I need better photographing skills. 😉

Mostly, this weekend served the purpose of getting an amazing group of people together. We had authors, bloggers, readers all in one hotel making so many memories. During a time where there is so much negativity out there, it’s great to praise the positive. I love this community and this weekend made me fall in love with it even more. I also wanted to keep everyone in Miami and make sure they stay here forever.

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and read great books! XOXO ❤

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.

Sweet on Wilde

Sweet on Wilde is LIVE and I cannot be more excited to share this story with you!! This is a fun and flirty read that will make you swoon and fall in love with the characters—the perfect southern romance. You may have heard me say already that this is different than my other books, but I’m glad I gave this book a chance. I hope you all enjoy this story!!

Sweet on Wilde

Synopsis:

Eight months ago, I made a deal with my best friend. This wasn’t your typical pact. No, we had to take a different route. The deal was that if we were still single by fall, we would join online dating. Yes…now I am that girl. Just me, though, because she met a guy and saved herself from the awkwardness of dating people you meet via the Internet.

Cheesy pick up lines.
Inappropriate messages.
Disaster dates.

I don’t want to be “Savannah, profile 8713,” but a pinky promise is a promise you keep. What I wasn’t counting on was meeting a guy at the local bar.

So what happens when you decide to open yourself up to new opportunities? You might just cross paths with someone who makes you believe in love. Parker Wilde brought out the best in me and understood the worst, but when an amazing opportunity presents itself and our lives take different directions, is being sweet on Wilde enough for us?

Sweet on Wilde Cover Reveal

I am so grateful for having the opportunity to live out my dream over and over again as I continue to write more stories for readers to enjoy. I recently came across an old “Notes” I did on Facebook back in 2009—”25 Random Things About Me.” You know, when these things were cool to do. I want to share two things I wrote there.

Number 1 said ” I love writing. It’s the easiest way for me to express myself.” This could not be more true. Ever since I was a teen, writing was what kept me sane. It brought peace and balance into my life. To be able to do that now and share it with the world is amazing.

Number 5 said “I want to publish a book at some point in my life.” Now, I can’t remember if I wrote this before or after a specific scene was playing in my mind and I decided to write it, later thinking it could be a novel. Of course, I thought I had lost it. Am I happy I didn’t give up that dream. It’s been a long road with many lessons, but the best choice I made was to reopen that document from 2009 and write a book.

Now I’m nearing my one year anniversary of my first novel, Perfectly Imperfect, and I’ve just revealed today my cover for me fourth novel. What a feeling. I’m not sure I can describe it in words.

Here is the beauty that will hold Sweet on Wilde, my romantic and humorous novel that I adore.

full-for-cover-reveal

I just want to stare at it. Every cover I’ve had so far describes the story perfectly, and this is no different. It portrays Savannah and Parker’s relationship just how it is; sweet, romantic, and peaceful.

Here’s a steamy, new teaser! 😉

Thank you all for joining me in this journey and I hope to bring more stories to all of you!
