MY REVIEW

I loved this book. It's a perfect love story for a snowy day, a day at the beach, or a lazy Sunday afternoon with nothing to do. Although it is part of a series, it could easily be read as a stand alone.

Jackson is the perfect guy, so caring and understanding. He was absolutely heartbroken after Lex resolved things with Drake (and if you haven't read Push the Envelope to hear their story, you should now). He was known as a player for quite a while, leaving a trail of broken hearts and hopeful girls in his wake. He decided to change for Lex, but now realizes that he doesn't want to go back to that lifestyle. Unfortunately, he can't get easily get away from his reputation when he becomes interested in Kaylie.

Kaylie is Sasha's feisty neighbor who intervenes during an argument between the two. She isn't intimidated by Jackson and stands up to him immediately. Jackson's never met a woman like her. He wants to make her feel like she means more to him than just a one night stand.  The things he does for her, the dates he planned, just warmed my heart. There are still some romantic men out there. 

The best part of the whole story, I didn't grunt, yell, or swear at my Kindle the entire time I was reading. There was no violence, no angst, no huge betrayals. It is just a story about how two different people come meet, get to know each other, and fall in love. 








EXCERPT

I loved bartending at the campus bar, The Rooster’s Nest. Of course, nobody called it by the real name. Instead, everyone usually just called it The Roost. Or if they were feeling particularly pervy, they called it The Cock. The bar was known for its cold beers, its hot cheese fries, and college bands. It’s a bit of a dive, but not in a sleazy way. Although the tight t-shirts we wore with crazy phrases like “I Serve Tail at The Cock” and a picture of a martini glass on it sure did seem push things toward the sleazy slide.

I got the job as soon as I’d turned twenty-one. I needed the money, and it paid well for a part-time job with hours that didn’t interfere with school or dance. It also didn’t hurt that I usually got to work shifts with my roomie Charlotte since she was the one who’d gotten me the interview. She was the boss’s favorite at The Roost, so I’d been a shoe-in for the job. And I got paid well to flirt all night, so that was a plus too.

Speaking of hot guys, Jackson Silver walked into the bar about an hour before last call. I’d thought about him several times over the last month and a half. Word on campus was that he’d been keeping to himself a lot more. When he came back from Christmas break, there hadn’t been any more rumors about random hook-ups. This was the first time I’d seen him since witnessing his argument with Sasha, which was strange considering how small the campus was.

He sat down at the other side of the bar, so Charlotte took his order and served him a beer and a shot. Then she headed straight over to me as soon as she had taken care of Jackson.

“Did ya see who’s at the bar? Hottie McHot-Pants himself,” she said, nodding her head in his direction.

About the Author
1014038_575959795832356_1051704837_nI absolutely adore reading - always have and always will. My friends growing up used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.

I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

When I told my mom that my new year's resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me "About time!"
