SYNOPSIS:
Life can be a bitch but love can get you through any storm.
Madison Cole’s family is the Storm Motorcycle Club. Her father is the President and her brother is the VP. She grew up surrounded by bikers, crime and violence. Two years ago she walked away from her family and the world they live in. Her soul was shattered, her heart was broken and she had an addiction she couldn’t shake. She picked up the pieces and put herself back together. Now her family wants her back. The club is being threatened and they send a club member to return her home to safety; the one person that could destroy everything she has worked so hard to build.
Jason Reilly has sacrificed a lot for the motorcycle club he calls family. Two years ago he made the biggest sacrifice of all; he gave up the woman he loved for them. Now he is being sent to bring her back and he is conflicted. He thought he was over her but discovers their connection is as strong as ever. Their love was all-consuming, passionate and fiery. It was also their undoing and he doesn’t know if either of them is strong enough to battle the demons that ripped them apart, to find love again. 
Madison and Jason are brought back together by a force out of their control; one that pushes them to a breaking point. Can they overcome their past and discover a love worth fighting for or will the harsh reality of their world finally and completely break them both?
 
 

EXCERPT:

I grabbed my purse and headed outside to go and buy lunch.
J was on the phone, but saw me come outside and signaled for me to wait.

“I’m going to buy lunch, J.  And I only get an hour so I don’t have time to wait for you,” I said, tersely.  He kept talking and scowled at me.  I turned and started to walk away from him, towards the cafe where I always bought lunch.

I could hear him muttering something into the phone and then he must have ended his call because he went silent.  Then, he barked, “Madison!”

The last thing I wanted to do was stop for him, but there was something in his tone; a ‘don’t fuck with me’ command.  So I stopped, and turned around to look at him.  Oh, my.  He was shitty. 

He stalked to where I was and got in my face.  “Why the
fuck do you have to be so difficult about this?” He was fuming.

Well, I could see him, and raise him in his anger.
“Maybe it has something to do with the way Scott has gone about this.  And the fact that he sent you!”

He flinched.  It was only for a second, and most people wouldn’t have even noticed it.  But I knew J, and I saw it.  It surprised the fuck out of me.  “Well then, it looks like we’ve got some shit to sort out, babe, because I’m not going anywhere.”

“I don’t want to sort shit out with you.  That ship sailed two fucking years ago, J,” I spat.

He gripped my arm, pulling me closer, “No, it fucking didn’t,” he growled, eyes blazing, “And you can’t deny there’s still something here. I feel it and I know you feel it too.”

I laughed.  No, actually, I cackled.  “You wanna fuck, J?  I can feel that, and, yeah, if you wanna go there, I’m all for it.  But don’t mistake my desire for your cock for anything else.”

**MEGAN’S REVIEW**

*3.5 Stars*

Another Motorcycle club book…omg…really?  Gosh I’m so bored with MC books – SAID NO ONE E V E R !!!!!!!!!!!

I was so excited for this story by the cover, the blurb, and yes the first 15%! Within the first 15% I was all in.  It had my attention. I was psyched this would be THE MC read.  Even at 15% I was all ready to give this a 5 easily.

But… Gosh I hate to say this but it missed the mark for me. I found that I was left yearning for more through out the story.  I wasn’t grabbed again after my initial excitement. At 60% I started jumping over words, then skimming.  I don’t like to skim. Definitely not when I know I have to write a review, sadly I had to.

I’ve often said this before, if you’ve read my other reviews, I’m a known for “I must see it to believe it…and to feel it.” Having the past that they did and to come back to each other it was sort of that instant attraction.  Even though, in words Madison put it off, deep down, it wasn’t over.  I would have liked to see more of their past prior the ‘event’ that changed them. It’s like a story of a story, if that makes sense.

There are some positives though. I was entertained at parts.  Particularly with Jason. I liked when I saw his name a the beginning of a chapter.  I knew the stuff he said would be epic. I loved J. I loved his mouth, his attitude.

“Your p***y, babe. It’s mine.”
 “Really? And who says so?”
“After that, you’re gonna f’ing argue?”
 “Maybe I just like to have a say in these things.”
“Yeah, baby. I remember. But let’s setting this now.  You and your p***y are mine, Yeah?”

Almost everything. One thing struck me a little odd, ESPECIALLY from a MC badass. He seemed to have a mush side. Not overly mushy but it’s something I’m not used to seeing in a tatted & leathered up MC guy.

Now, Madison. I have to give it to Nina and kudos to Madison herself. Even though she had some issues in her life.  No she wasn’t a saint, but once she had gotten all the facts there was no second guessing what she had to do and what she wanted. There was no tittering, or talking herself out of it. It was a done deal and I loved that. I also loved that she was a woman….A WOMAN.  Not some freshly hatched blonde dummy with looks to kill and no brain cells 🙂 She wasn’t perfect, by all means.  She was normal.  That I liked!

“Men, I can’t f***kin work them out!”

Another positive was that this was a short read. Less than 200 pages. Definitely a one sitting read.

EXCERPT:

I helped bus the tables as I was pretty useless at pulling beers. I had lost track of time when I felt my phone buzz in my skirt pocket. I raced into the back room and just managed to answer the call in time. It was Riley and my heart melted at the sound of his voice.

“Where are you?” he asked, obviously able to hear the band playing in the background.

I told him excitedly about catching up with Jay and lining up the band to meet Marcus, and how I was now bussing tables at the bar. For some reason I felt the need to avoid mentioning Cole. But Riley could hear him singing in the background and commented on his voice.

“Ah, yep he does have a great voice,” I said, feeling guilty when I hadn’t done anything to feel guilty about.

Then I changed the subject and asked Riley what he had been up to. We had only been speaking for about fifteen minutes when the band stopped for a break, and then the door opened and Cole was standing there.

He could see I was on the phone but didn’t seem to care, as he came in and pulled off his sweat soaked t-shirt, before rummaging in a bag and pulling out a clean one.

I looked at his shirtless body in awe. Not only did he have the full sleeve of tattoos up his left arm, but he had angel wings, or was that eagle wings across his shoulder blades.

He turned around to face me and saw me looking at him, so stood still and cockily held his arms out to the sides so I could get a good look, watching my expression.

I couldn’t help it, I exhaled loudly at the sight of his ripped body.

Finally, I managed to tear my eyes away from his amazing body and turn my back to him. I heard him chuckle softly. Then realising that the bar would be busy with people buying drinks now that the band was on a break, I reluctantly told Riley I would have to go.

“I’ll see you in a week,” Riley said as he was getting ready to hang up. “I miss you babe, I think about you all the time.”

“I miss you too,” I said quietly into the phone. “I love you. See you next week.”

“I love you too.” Then he was gone.

“Hmm, I take it that wasn’t your mum,” Cole said. “Boyfriend not around at the moment?” he asked with a smirk.

“He’s in the army, based in Sydney,” I replied as I headed for the door.

“Must get lonely,” he said with a glint in his eye as he pulled his clean shirt on over his head.

**JODIE’S REVIEW**

*3 Stars*

“It shouldn’t be about perfection, it should be about enjoyment.”

For a debut, Lisa Edward’s came out swinging.  She got my attention and she held it till the end.  I laughed, I almost cried, I was mad and I fell in love not with the main character!  Yeah that happened a secondary character stole my heart and I am not going to lie I hope he makes a HUGE appearance in book 2.  In fact prepare for this man, Mr. Hotbod Cole.

“Cole ticked every box in what I would ever want from a boyfriend, except one thing.  He was caring, thoughtful and attentive.  He was funny intelligent; he just couldn’t keep it in his pants.”

That was okay with me, in fact, I loved him for it.  Cole ticked all that and more, he stole my heart, almost my pants and I think I envisioned having his children.  He was a rock star with a body everyone wanted to touch.  Yes, that happened.  So I guess I should talk about the story and the main characters a little because that’s what you really want to know. 

“So you think I’m hot?” Cole asked cockily as he leaned towards me.

Yes I do and now I have to quit talking about you and talk about what’s his name, Riley.  Riley is what every girl dreams about.  Riley is the knight in shining armor, he this beautiful, I will protect you man.  He was everything Tara wanted!

“Tara needs to get laid and Mr. Hotbod is the prime candidate.”

What the hell I can’t help it I really wanted her to sleep with Cole.   But anyway we meet Tara at the beginning and she is escaping an abusive relationship with her boyfriend the douche aka shithead aka Stephen.

“The face he showed was all charm and everybody loved him. But under the charm laid a monster who surfaced often when we were alone together.”

I immediately felt for Tara and I wanted her to get a HEA!  I hated what she put herself through but I loved how she recovered!  I loved what she found in Riley, I loved how they saved each other.  

“I love you more than life itself.  I feel in love with you the night we met, you never fail to amaze me with your generosity, and the love and warmth you give to everyone around you.  I feel so blessed to be one of those people.”

These two definitely had insta-love but it was explained and you understood the reasons.   They have a strong love story but I can’t help think there is something with Cole. 

“Don’t bother Cole, she has a boyfriend who could kick your ass with one hand tied behind his back.”

I don’t know I want Cole to try and I want to see what book 2 brings along.  Which leaves me saying Lisa can I please have book 2 and can you make that happen.

Entwine by Rebecca Berto Book Blitz

Title: Entwine
Author: Rebecca Berto

Publication Date: November 25th 2013
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult

male fitness man posing his muscles

SYNOPSIS:

Sarah Langham’s life was the epitome of normal until her dad slept with another woman when she was sixteen. It ripped her family apart.

Twenty-two-year-old Sarah has it together, though.

Waiting at the train station to go home from her first day of her first proper job out of university, she spots a man.

He is an enigma to her. She’s drawn to him, with his square jaw; buzz of hair; and his tall, solid frame, seen under the contours of his business suit. And he’s been looking at her, too. Fate pulls them together that night on a whirlwind date, exceeding anything Sarah’s experienced before. He’s even more into her than she’s into him. Finally, she wants to trust a guy for the first time since she was sixteen.

But then they discover something.

Something that meant they were never two strangers at a train station.

And it threatens to tear their future apart before it, really, ever begins.

EXCERPT:

When Sarah first came home her ears had a faint ring in them, and now, in the aching silence, they buzzed at her fiercely. Her first thought was Ah! Relative quiet for once. I’ll just sneak in and get my mobile phone. Now she wished her dad had been doing anything else, even playing that stupid rock ‘n’ roll music. She had a solution for that: plug in her Favourites playlist and turn the volume up.

She heard the first moan, whispering through the walls. She was drawn toward the sound in her parents’ bedroom; it was like the undeniable dread of watching someone being bullied from afar. It was being unsure how to make it stop.

But Sarah’s mum was out, and there was definitely two people making those sounds in there. For the first few moments, Sarah wondered if her mum had suddenly materialised here. Why else would her dad be moaning in sync with that female voice, and the bed legs be screeching in that way?

She remembered arriving into the silence that had encased her, replacing the throbbing sounds from the party she’d just been at, thinking it all seemed too quiet in here.

She was right.

Sarah felt the blood drain from her face. A sense of nothingness washed over her as she braced her palm to the wall outside her parents’ bedroom, narrowly preventing her wobbly legs from taking her down.

What should she do?

She willed her ears to block out what she heard, but she knew sticking her fingers in the holes wouldn’t help a bit. And her dad didn’t deserve to be the reason she harmed herself if she poked inside too hard.

Sarah wished she could run, but instead her feet stayed rooted against the wall, and she shivered at the choice she had to make. What would she do, tell her mum that she could hear the bed creaking against the frame, that her dad’s friend wasn’t trying to be quiet at all?

The sounds triggered a memory. She’d caught a weird text message when sitting at the kitchen bench, her playing with her dad’s phone, her mum still at work. Her dad had snapped his mobile phone from her fingers and told her to go to her room. Her shock back then debilitated her choice to tell her mum. Her voice didn’t work when she tried to speak, and her throat was tight even when she swallowed. Now, hearing what was happening behind the wall, she had no idea where to even begin.

Sarah clamped a hand over her mouth in case she sobbed loudly, forced her other hand to push her from the lure of the wall where she had been frozen, and to walk herself out the front door.

Back to that party. Back through the shadows of darkness and odd orbs of light, along the sidewalk, back to the noise and the alcohol, and the people trying to forget their responsibilities.

 AUTHOR INTERVIEW:

What inspired you to write Entwine?

 I was in a bit of a rut and my friend suggested to free write to help. So I downloaded a program that blocked out my screen and had a serene and freeing vibe to it. And I wrote.

 I wrote one scene and then during my second free writing exercise, I ended up continuing that same character and story. Fearing I’d get in a rut again if I turned it into a novel, I continued to write random scenes until about 10,000 words along.

Then I knew I had something special and I had to create a novel. The two main characters excited and ignited a passion in me I hadn’t felt for a while.

I have to thank my friend for the reason Entwine exists. It turned out beautifully, thanks to the way I approached it differently than I have to my writing in the past.

 Tell us about your main character.

Sarah is an every-girl. She isn’t a virgin but she hasn’t slept with the whole town, she isn’t stuck up, or overly reserved, and she isn’t whiny.

 Sarah is fresh out of college, starting her dream job but in her personal life, she’s stuck from moving forwards by hurt in her past. When she meets an amazing guy one night, she fears he’s too good since Sarah’s nothing special. It’s the simple, yet realistic quality about her I really connected to.

Sarah is understatedly unforgettable.

 Who does your book appeal to?

Entwine is a unique one to classify.

 It evokes a dream-like style at times; in other scenes it’s emotionally devastating with the hurt Sarah feels; and sometimes it’s so damn hot your screen will be in danger of igniting into flames.

If you love your sexy reads and your emotional stories, Entwine is a great balance between that.

**JOSIE’S REVIEW**
*4.5 Stars*

After finishing Hers, I was happy to find out we would get Star’s story. Finding Willow starts around the 70% mark of Hers.  In this book we get to read about Star’s addiction to drugs, alcohol, sex and Blue (Seven’s older brother). This was an emotional read and at times I had tears in my eyes.   Star has a lot of guilt about what happened between Blue and her and how it affected her relationship with Seven.

In Hers, I really did not like Star but after reading this book, I loved her! I ended up loving this book more than the first.  I wanted to jump into my Kindle and hug and punch Blue for all that he did to her and her family too.  We see Star change and grow so much in this book, and even though her past was a mess she pushes forward for her new life.

“My problems are pathetic.  I’m a coke addicted porn star looking for a new star.  There isn’t much more to it.”

At the end of Hers, we know Star is searching for her daughter, Willow. How that plays out is sweet. I don’t want to give any spoilers but I really enjoyed how that ended and how Star got more of a family aside from just her daughter. 

Enter Chrome, hot biker guy, you know the bad boy type, well he wants Star.  But as true in the biker world, he has baggage too and it takes Star to walk in on him having his d**k in someone else’s mouth for Chrome to stake his claim.

“Star open the f**king door.  We need to talk.  I dint mean for you to see that. I didn’t want to like you, but I do.  I use them.”  I don’t want to leave you tonight.  I can’t let you push me away.”

“I don’t care, Star.  I don’t f*king care about any of it.  I want to kill him, because he hurt you.  If you anyone ever touched Scarlett, I would kill them.  I would fucking kill them.”

“Don’t be shy baby.  You are beautiful. I just want to take in every inch of you.  Commit it to memory since I will be gone for a couple of days.  F**k Star.  God Damn it.  You fell so f**king good.”

Uggg and the cause of most of Star issues is Blue. I hated him ever since Hers. He is an animal and I call him the DEVIL.  If you saw how I nearly jumped into my Kindle and kicked some Blue a** you would probably have joined me.

‘Don’t you f**king walk away from me Princess.  I told you princess.  You will always be mine. Stop fighting me, I have waited a long time for our family to be together.”

I loved the ending of this book! It was such an emotional read but the end result was worth all my ups and downs!

ABOUT DREW + FABLE FOREVER:

Monica Murphy returns with her most beloved characters, Drew and Fable, in this eBook original short story that brings her bestselling New Adult series full circle.

Fantasy. How I ended up with NFL player Drew Callahan, the guy every woman wants, is beyond my wildest dreams. All I know is that once he chose me as his one and only, I sure wasn’t looking back. I had past wounds and he showed patience and concern—even accepting responsibility for my messed-up kid brother. Now, yet again, he’s found a way to blow my mind: an exotic wedding and honeymoon miles and miles away from home. What else could a girl ever ask for?

Reality. Except now the honeymoon’s over. Drew’s football schedule takes him on the road constantly, while I need to stay put and look after my brother until he finishes high school—because God knows our sorry excuse for a mother won’t. I know Drew loves me with all his heart, and I’ll always be over the moon about him. This just isn’t how I imagined life as newlyweds . . . dealing with the distance, missing him constantly. But we’ve gone through hard times before. We can get through this, too, right? We’re Drew and Fable, together forever. At least I hope so…

EXCERPT:

“We should check out Ocean Avenue tomorrow,” Drew whispers close to my ear, amusement tingeing his deep voice.

“What? Are you serious?” Even though I’ve come to terms with being here, it doesn’t mean I want to linger and make it a serious vacation. Besides, Drew needs to get back home so he can resume practice.

“Well yeah, remember the spot where we kissed?” His eyes are warm as they search my face, filled with so much love I feel my heart swell.

“Yes,” I whisper achingly. “Of course I remember.”

“I want to go back there.” He tucks a strand of hair behind my ear, his index finger lingering on my skin. “I want to kiss you again in that little alley and remember how wet we were from the rain. How nervous I was. I was scared you might reject me.”

I’d felt the same way. We’d dealt with much of the same feelings and fears and hadn’t even known it.

“I want to take you to that store where you got the dress that just about killed me and buy you whatever you want,” he continues, his fingers drifting across my jaw. My eyes flutter closed as memories rush back at me. “I want to sit outside the dressing room and have you come out to show me every single thing you’re trying on.”

That he remembers all the little details sends a thrill of pleasure spiraling to the very depths of my soul.

“And then I want to wander off for a bit and let you do whatever you want, secretly hoping that you’ll send me a text that says marshmallow. Though if you don’t that’s okay because I’ll send you one instead.” He offers up a crooked smile and the sight of it cracks my heart wide open, overflowing with so much pure love for him I want to cry. “Because we made a deal. Whenever we see or hear that word, the other comes running. I’ll always be the one to rescue you, Fable. You never have to worry about that.”

SYNOPSIS

Underground fighter Remington Tate is a mystery, even to himself. His mind is dark and light, complex and enlightening. At times his actions and moods are carefully measured, and at others, they spin out of control.

Through it all, there’s been one constant: wanting, needing, loving, and protecting Brooke Dumas. This is his story; from the first moment he laid eyes on her and knew, without a doubt, she would be the realest thing he’s ever had to fight for.

**JODIE’S REVIEW**

*4 Stars*

Dear Remington, The first moment I laid eyes on you, I think you had me.  And I think you knew.  How could you possibly not know?  That the floor was shaking under my feet.  It was.  You made it move. 

REMINGTON IS BACK and when he hit my kindle I was all THANK GOD NOW DON’T TALK ME!!!   I did a dance and then I jumped in bed and put my husband on stand-by.

“Yes, you hungry ladies out there, scream your hearts out for the baddest bad boy this ring has ever seen!  Rippppppptiiiiiiide!”

This time around I was excited because I was in his head, I was ready to feel his emotions.   I was ready to see his black.  Remy is definitely a broken man, full of fear and pain.  I have never read about a man who loved with as much as he loved Brooke.  The way he wanted to protect her, love her and just be everything she wanted him to be. 

“Now all I want is the woman I love.  To love me.  Like nobody in my life has loved me before.  And I’ll fight hard for her than for anyone.”

What I will say, in this book we got a different view of how much Brooke was truly his kryptonite, his trigger, she is the one who can put him in the ‘black’ or bring him back to the ‘blue’.   She is everything to him and he will do anything to make the world see she is his.  

“I’m Remington Tate – Riptide – and I am HER MAN, HER PROTECTOR, and I am going to take care of this RIGHT NOW.”

Remy blew me away at the beginning but then something happened and I found myself saying I don’t think I could deal.  At times I felt like he was repetitive, needy, and  too possessive.  I know that sounds crazy I mean ITS REMINGTON!!!  I think being in his head gave me a real view of him and pulled back the curtain that hid these flaws.   But what Katy did do that I can say without doubt she proved just how REAL, Remington Tate is.   She proved that this love story she created is one that will never be touched, never can be compared and never can be replaced.

“I just knew somewhere deep inside me, my life would forever be touched and changed by you.  It has been.  I have had the most amazing, incredible, beautiful moment of my life with you.

And of course…

“I love you, Remy.  With all my heart.  You are the most beautifully complicated gentle fighter I’ve ever known.  You have made me deliriously happy.”

THE POWER TO SEE
BY JENNIFER ANNE DAVIS


~SYNOPSIS~

At first glance, twenty-two-year-old Brianna’s life seems perfect. But she harbors a deadly secret—her father is the leader of a ruthless drug cartel. Brianna struggles to find her place in a world her father meticulously controls, and believes she is nothing but a pawn in her father’s deadly games.

After graduating from college with an enormous debt, Dominic finds himself lured by money and power into a job that appears too good to be true. He doesn’t realize he works for a drug cartel until he’s in too deep. Trying to keep his family safe, he takes a deal offered by Brianna’s father and agrees to marry Brianna while continuing to work for the cartel.

Brianna and Dominic must rely on one another as their lives become further entwined in the lethal drug world. When Dominic discovers a deadly secret, he begins to question everything and turns to Brianna for support. However, Brianna’s heart belongs to another man—an undercover DEA agent.

The DEA closes in on the drug cartel, forcing Brianna and Dominic to choose sides, igniting a battle between family loyalty, love, and survival. Brianna soon realizes that she may be the only person capable of bringing down her father’s empire—if she can find a way to outsmart the master manipulator, without losing herself, and her heart, in the process.

**JOSIE’S REVIEW**

*4.5 Stars*

So anything that involves the mafia, I am in! Add a hot guy and sex, well that is just a bonus.  I didn’t know what to expect when going into this because I thought it would be a typical mafia love story…WRONG!!!! That’s right…wrong! This book had so many twists and turns, shockers, SEX, violence and BETRAYAL ALL OVER THE PLACE!

Dominic has just finished college and is ready to propose to the love of his life, Claire.  We are to assume Claire is going to say yes.  Dominic did not anticipate Claire getting a visit from the evil drug lord, Salazar, and that’s where the trouble begins.

Dominic and Brianna are from two different worlds but yet they share so much.  Because of this connection they have Brianna’s father the leader of a huge drug cartel enlists Dominic to take over for him, unbeknownst to Dominic.   Dominic and Briana are thrown together, and form an alliance to take down Salazar. 

I thought that Dominic and Brianna’s relationship was a real love story.  However, Briana was in love with Mike the DEA and Dominic never got over Claire.  Dominic had me so confused because I honestly did not know whose side he was on.  Towards the end I questioned myself even more.  I swear I did not who to trust because when I thought things were going the way I wanted BOOM, things changed.  OK and yep there is a cliff hanger which left me questioning again WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON?!

If you are into suspense, mystery and CRAZY HOT SEX SCENCES then this is a book for you.  Jennifer Anne Davis takes you on a ride up until the very end, which made reading this so exciting. You will have a love/hate relationship with all the characters, even the drug lord (yep I did).  Seriously, I did not expect what I got from this book, and that is a good thing because I could not put it down. Now if book 2 could come out as soon as possible, MAYBE I could narrow down the EVIL guys and get all my answers.

AN INTERVIEW WITH JENNIFER ANNE DAVIS

Did you always want to be a writer? Or did you want to be something else?

I’ve wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember. When I went to college, I didn’t think I could make a career out of writing, so I became a teacher instead. Once I had kids and stopped teaching, I realized I could write in my “spare” time. I’ve been writing ever since.

How long does it take you to write a book?

It really depends. Usually it takes me about 1 month of outlining and planning the book, 2 months to write the first draft, and then 2-3 months of revising.

How often do you write?

Every day after I drop my kids off at school, I write or revise for a couple of hours. Then at night after my kids are all in bed, I try to get in a couple more hours of writing. Sometimes I’ll be in the middle of writing an exciting chapter, but I have to stop to go pick my kids up from school. That is really hard. I have notes all over my house where I write thoughts down so I don’t forget them!

How do you balance other aspects of your life with your writing?

It’s hard. Writing is so very time consuming. And now with a book in print, I have to allocate time to marketing myself as well. I try to only work when my kids are at school or in bed. The weekends are for family (or reading ). It is hard to balance. My characters are always with me and I’m constantly thinking about them. We’ll be in the middle of dinner and I’ll jump up to go and write some notes down about something that should happen or what someone should say. My kids think it’s funny and they ask who I’m writing about and what’s going on with my characters. We talk about them like they’re real people!

What makes a great story?

I love a lot of action! BUT I absolutely have to get to know the characters. I want to know not only what the character is doing, but when they’re thinking and feeling. I love when the story is infused with a slow building romance. I detest it when characters see one another and are instantly in love because they are so beautiful.

What was the hardest thing about writing a book?

Getting through that first rough draft! I love to plan the book and create the world and characters. But making it through that first draft can be torturous! Once that draft is done, the revising starts, which is hard too, but at least I have something to work with.

What kinds of things do you do in your spare time?

My kids are young so I’m constantly driving them to soccer, karate, and doing homework with them. We love to go swimming and to the beach.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to start writing?

Read. You can’t expect to write if you don’t read A LOT. You have to know your genre, audience, and what people are doing that works. Reading will make you a better writer.

Do you have any go to people when writing a book that help you with your story lines as well as editing, beta reading and such?

Definitely! I have two writing partners. We bounce ideas around and critique each other’s work. I know I wouldn’t be published today without working with these two individuals.

Are you working on anything else right now?

Yes! I’m always working on something else! Right now I’m in the middle of writing a three book YA light fantasy series, called The True Reign Trilogy. The first book entitled THE KEY, was released November 15, 2013. The second book is expected to come out early of 2014.

How did you come up with the idea for The Power to See?

I was actually having trouble falling asleep one night, so I decided to create a story in my head. I love mafia type movies so I started thinking about The Godfather, Traffic, and The Usual Suspects. Then I started to wonder what it would be like if a drug cartel was operating right here in the United States instead of Colombia. I started to imagine an evil man in charge of the empire, and his daughter caught up in the business. I wanted a Romeo and Juliet love affair so I decided to have a DEA agent fall in love with her. What could be more forbidden than that? But of course that was too simple, so I added another love interest into the mix.

When I woke up the next day, I began writing everything down. The story morphed into what it is today.
