Whenever I want a read that takes me out away from super-sweet, I dive into a novel by Cynthia A. Rodriguez. Her latest novel, Folie A Deux did not disappoint!

I ran away with these characters and was with them as they fell hard, made bad decisions, and *almost* threw my kindle against the wall at that ending!  read more…

Author Spotlight: DOWN WE’LL COME BABY, Baby by Carrie Aarons

I met Author Carrie Aarons at a book signing and was completely enchanted. She is beautiful, charming and so incredibly kind. Flash forward to a few weeks ago when this book cover hits my screen featuring a handsome, burly man… and the tag line: I would have sacrificed for her until the end of time. I had to read this book and devoured it in an evening!

Down We’ll Come, Baby, is a steamy, yet complex story about a married couple falling apart. What I loved was the change in the standard romantic formula. The heroine is flawed and the hero will stop at nothing to get his wife back. I had the opportunity to pick Author Carrie Aaron’s brain on everything from marriage to infertility and the good (and bad!) choices we make.

Wild Abandon Sneak Peak – “Why Him”


Copyright 2016 Wild Abandon by Jeannine Colette

He is about to take a shot. His eyes lose focus, and he stands and looks at me. “Why him?”

I tilt my head at Nate. I don’t know if they’re reflective of the green felt of the pool table, but right now, his eyes are so piercing and mesmerizing. I swear, he can see right through me.

“Why was he worthy of a second date?” he asks.

I open my mouth to answer but close it for fear that I’ll say something wrong.

Why Brent? Because he’s emotionally available. Because he has the perfect career and a full head of hair and loves cats and classical music and is lukewarm to sports.

And, most importantly, because the man I really want to be interested in me is with someone else.

“He checks all the boxes.” My voice is low.

Nate’s chest rises with a deep breath. His eyes are stone cold and scorching hot all at once. He is so far away, yet I can feel his exhale on my skin.

With his eyes still on mine, Nate takes a step back from the table. “He has a lot of money. He can take care of you.”

I nod my head. “Yes.”

Nate takes a few steps, slow and steady, toward the corner of the table in my direction. His eyes curve in question, yet their focus never leaves mine. “He was married. Probably ready to settle down again. Start a family.”

I nod again.

Even closer, he places his pool stick on the table. I have no idea what his mission is, but it’s making my palms sweat and my breathing erratic.

“Did he tell you that you’re beautiful?”

My breath hitches, and I nod my head again. Nate is now just a few inches from me. His gaze is hard and stern on mine.

“He’s an idiot. He should have told you that you’re fucking gorgeous.” His words are hypnotic, but the tone he delivers them in is rough, raw.

“That wasn’t a requirement. I don’t need a man to tell me I’m pretty.”

“I know what your boxes are. He is the perfect guy for you. That’s why I have to know…”

Nate’s chest is now flush with mine, his forehead bowing down to meet mine, and I lose all air from my lungs.

“Why are you here with me and not with him?”
