Reckless & Real, #2
Release: March 3, 2015
After everything blew up on Christmas, Liz walked away from me, and I let her. She said she needed space and a chance to pursue her dreams. But we both knew she was running from the mess she made. Now the political campaign she used as an ex- cuse to leave is bringing us back together and I’m proving to her what she really needs—not just the hot nights, greedy hands, and undeniable physical chemistry. What she really needs is something real. What she really needs…is me.

Let me just say….don’t start this book late at night unless you have no plans for the next day. I physically had to force myself to stop at 56% because it was 2am. I couldn’t put it down.
This book sucked me from the first word and held on tight until I got to the last word. My heart and stomach were in knots for most of the book. The emotional turmoil these characters went through was so sad. I was surprised with the direction of this book. After reading the blurb I was expecting it to go a completely different way. Don’t get me wrong I am not disappointed at all. Just taken by surprise. What I truly LOVED about this book was the amount of twists and turns this story took. Just when you think you have it all figured out, some new secret would come out and change everything. This book was a fairly quick read, easily able to be read in an afternoon. I do want to warn people who are not big fans of cheating and or love triangles, this book adds an awkward spin on both of these subjects. I don’t want to give anything away, but just know that this book doesn’t have cheating in the normal aspect (not everything is as it seems) and it could be a love triangle to some….that is kind of a wide stretch though. This book was truly filled with a lot of angst, sometimes too much, that I honestly didn’t see how Sam and Liz could get their HEA.
This was a fantastic conclusion to Sam and Liz’s story. Talk about two characters who have some serious hurdles to overcome. What an emotional roller coaster. This book was filled with lies, secrets, betrayal, love and sex. What a great combination!!!! I both Loved Sam and Liz but I also wanted to smack both of them. I will say that everything is revealed in the end and I was taken by complete shock how this story played out. I loved the connections that the author portrayed between these characters and all of the secondary characters. She really made me feel as the reader as a part of the circle of friends. I am anxious to read Max and Nix’s story later this year!!!
I would recommend this book/series to everyone who loves a story about love, lies, betrayal, and secrets. This book will for sure have you sitting on the edge of your seat trying to figure it all out. I had a really hard time putting it down, because I wanted answers. This book will definitely have your emotions all over the place, but just know that it is worth it and will leave you with a smile on your face in the end 🙂

Reckless & Real #1
Release: December 22, 2014
He talks dirty to me, but I don’t know his name.
He wants to tie me up, but I don’t know his face.
He turns me on, but I couldn’t point him out in a crowd.
I’ve fallen for an anonymous stranger, and tonight the anonymity ends. Tonight I want more than typed secrets and texted promises. I want something reckless. Heat. Passion. The thrill of being entirely possessed.
Because I suspect this anonymous stranger isn’t a stranger at all.
Lizzy Thompson met riverrat69 online through Something Real, a service promising to deliver meaningful relationships by forbidding its users to share names or photos until they’ve reached a certain benchmark. She was looking for love. He was researching an investment. They hit it off. Talked and flirted, hid behind screen names and cartoon avatars.
Now they’re breaking the rules and meeting in person. But Liz is prepared. She’s picked up hints and followed clues.
She’s ninety-percent convinced she’s discovered the identity of her dirty-talking online friend.
She wonders if her ex-lover Sam Bradshaw knows her identity too.
When she rolls the dice on one reckless night, her chance at something real could crumble.

About the Author
Once a college English professor, I now write full time. I live in rural Indiana, where, when I’m not writing, I get to hang out with my husband and two kids–a six-year-old boy and
a two-year-old hellion, er, girl. Not surprisingly, reading and writing remain my favorite activities, though both come in bits and pieces these days, not the big hunks of time I en- joyed before I had children. When I’m feeling virtuous, I like to go running (I use that word liberally. I’m really, really slow) or do yoga. Don’t worry, I’m always careful to balance out such activities with a hearty serving of ice cream or a chocolate martini.
