Chad Alexander is a playboy that leads a life full of comfort, ease, and fun. With enough women at his beck and call to keep him from getting bored, he doesn’t understand why there is one woman constantly on his mind. She infuriates him, gets under his skin, and makes him desire her more than any other woman he has ever known. He loathes Rayne for the way she treats people she thinks are beneath her. In fact, he wants to teach her a lesson that will leave a lasting impression on her. But when it’s all said and done, why can’t he leave behind the one woman he can’t stand?

Rayne Sampson is a beautiful woman who has men throwing themselves at her feet with one bat of her eye lashes. She is a woman that men write sonnets about, but she isn’t happy. Disgusted by her brother’s new wife, Rayne refuses to accept Emma in her life. Rayne knows that Chad has it out for her, however, she’s decided she’ll be the one teaching the lesson this time. Can she ignore the way her body yearns for his touch long enough to prove her point?

Fighting each other, the passion between them ignites, leaving them both burning. Will they survive “the lesson” Chad sets out to teach her? Or will they both be incinerated before they reach the end of the line?

Sometimes facing defeat is the only way to find yourself redeemed.

This is the second book in the Love Seekers series and oh what a book it was! Like the first book in this series the author has a message she puts out there, so pay attention.  I think the reason why I enjoy reading books from this author so much is, because she takes readers behind what we see from their characters, and gives readers a real story, no matter how ugly it is.


In the first book, Rayne was not a character I liked at all, I felt there was no way this author could redeem her or even make me like her.  Well let’s just say we still see Rayne’s ugly side in this book but we also learn a lot more about this complexed character.  I loved Chad in the first book but I can say I am more in love with him after this one. He hates how Rayne is and hates how she gets away with hurting so many people.  His plan is simple bring Rayne down a few notches but the problem with his plan is Rayne has the same idea.


These characters are something else.  You think they’d be the last people on earth to fall in love  but love is a tricky thing.  They fight more than my kids do and that’s saying something.  I loved how the author doesn’t give readers a fast resolution to these characters, we get a story that literally took my breathe away.  The more Chad and Rayne spent together the more we undercover the truth about Rayne.    I really loved how Chad and Rayne discover love and form a strong bond.  


This book teaches us how sometimes people hide behind their actions trying to escape the real nightmares that plague their nights.  Chad and Rayne’s journey is hard and harsh, there is so much pain and torment but somehow together they come out on top.  I really enjoyed this book and loved how these two characters unfold through the pages in this book.  Incredibly written.

Your twenties are supposed to be some of the best, and certainly the most fun of your life, but for Emma Taylor, turning twenty-five brought her world crashing down around her. Four years after being diagnosed with a debilitating disease, her love life is non-existent. A series of failed blind dates–courtesy of her friends–has left her feeling depressed and defeated. Intent on turning to her best friend for a vent session, Emma sends off a rapid-fire instant message, except her message ends up in someone else’s inbox. The inbox of hot Navy pilot, Bryan Sampson–her friend Mel’s best friend, and Emma’s secret crush.

Bryan Sampson has only met Emma Taylor one time during a night of karaoke while on leave, but in one night, she managed to make an impression. She seemed timid and uncomfortable in her own skin, but underneath it all, he could see how strong she had to be in order to cope with her disease. So when her message catches his eye, he opens it without a second thought, and realizes almost immediately it isn’t intended for him. Now that he’s read it though, he can’t turn his back on her and feels duty bound to help the cause. Besides, what else is he supposed to do with his free time? He vows he will help her find love never suspecting that the more he talks to her, the more he finds out about himself…the more she occupies his thoughts.

Emma is determined to face her demons thanks to Bryan’s encouragement, but little by little she begins falling harder for the one person who isn’t ashamed of her or her disease. Can she put her heart on the line and take the risk? Can she convince Bryan that love, her love, is worth it?

Sometimes all it takes is one person to expose the beauty within.

❤✨ From the Author ✨ ❤

Life is about what you make of it. You have to live it to the fullest no matter the circumstances.

I have always loved books. Not only creating the stories, but reading them as well. Books transport me, and when I was younger, I would run into walls because I refused to put my books down even for a second. Take note, walking with books is not advised. LOL.

With my books, I just want to share my stories with the world. I want others to be transported or to feel the emotions my characters feel. That is my goal with my writing. If I can do that for one person, I succeeded.

Getting sick changed me and my life, but it also opened doors that I thought were closed. Today, even though i cannot do much, I still have my mind and I can write.
