This is book 3 of Sam and Brett’s story. And I loved it.

There is so much about their tough times that are realistic. Sam has won an Olympic medal and is now becoming a star. Sam is definitely enjoying his new-found fame, with an agent who is very aggressive and keeping Sam busy. This takes a toll on his relationship with Brett, as cracks are formed. Sam’s new schedule of appearances is preventing him from spending much time with Brett, let alone devoting time to him while they are together. Brett can’t take much more of this treatment. He is not liking this new, prima-dona version of Sam.

During this time, they are faced with problems from Sam’s agent, as well as his dad. Their friends are both helpful and hurtful throughout this time. And they get a hot offer from their friends Ryan and Caleb.

I really enjoyed this latest installment in Sam and Brett’s story. They are a great couple who have to face very realistic challenges that have the power to separate them. I absolutely found myself wanting to slap some sense into Sam, which was sad, but it proves how well this was written. I found his attitude to be such a sudden thing, but it made sense given there was a time jump from book 2 to this book.

They fact that they don’t function well when apart is just beautiful. I absolutely adore the way they are as a couple – how they ground each other and comfort each other.

Seriously, I love this book and highly recommend it!

On the surface, Sam and Brett appear to have it all. Sam is basking in his post-Olympic glory, and Brett is going to college working towards his own dreams. Underneath, major cracks are starting to form, and there are those who are more than willing to break Sam and Brett apart forever. It’s going to take a miracle, and a very unconventional proposal from friends to keep the fairytale alive. I was absolutely riveted by this fantastic, bittersweet, poignant, sexy, and emotionally charged tale. I highly recommend reading all three books in the Ice Fairy series in order.

Time and Olympic fame have changed the dynamic between Sam and Brett and they are close to the breaking point. Drifting apart due to time, loss of connection due to Sam’s attitude and Brett’s since of loss of their relationship is heartbreaking. They have friends that help with the best offer possible and they do find their way back to each other and to being stronger than ever.

This is a very steamy and very engaging story that will keep you reading. The writing is good and the characters are realistic and well done.

Posted in Books, coming soon

Coming late summer…

Ask 26-year-old artist Cid Walker how he’s feeling and you’ll likely get a snarl, or a glare, but not a real answer. Cid’s soul is so damaged from a brutal and savage ex-fiancé that trusting anyone is out of the question.

Two classmates try to get his attention; Barry and Kellen. Barry is only 18 and a very naïve, sweet boy-next-door type who is young, needy, and anxious to get involved with the mysterious artist. He wants to be with Cid more than anything, but his efforts fail.

Kellen, all of 22, is as snarky as Cid is at first, but soon manages to get across to him. Kellen understands why Cid is acting out because Kellen is also keeping his soul and psyche intact with mere Band-Aids after being attacked a few years ago.

Add in a stalker that won’t take ‘no’ for an answer and you have Cid’s life at the moment. Who can get through his broken heart?

Coming this August 🙂

Rainbow Snippets

LBTN NewI am part of a Facebook Group called ‘Rainbow Snippets’ where we post a WIP or new book in six-sentence bits (see below).  This is my 1st and I hope to keep doing these. 🙂

Enjoy!

#RainbowSnippets Here is my first entry from my newly re-released book, Love by the Numbers.

Jared is the athlete, Scott the academic. When forced together they become more than just tutor/student. Jared is hiding a huge secret and as their friendship grows, Scott is determined to find out what it is.

Snippet:

“I wouldn’t know, I’ve never danced before.” Scott frowned, bowed his head again and mumbled.
“Not ever? With anyone?”
Scott cast him a studious look. He thought hard, conjuring a memory. “Oh wait a minute. I think I was four when I danced with my mom at a wedding.”

Back in the mix…

Behind the scenes I’ve been updating some of my older titles 🙂 I am proud to announce that one has gotten a spit-n-polish, with a shiny new cover, and they have both been re-listed.

I give you: Love by the Numbers and For the Heart of Phillip

Jared Adams is the smokin’ hot darling of the school baseball team. Girls fawn all over him and the world is at his feet.

Except he can’t do math.

Enter Scott Williams: nerd and mathlete. He’s only supposed to help Jared with math, but the help – and friendship – go further than that.

Fate made them friends, but is friendship all they have?

Out today! Coming Together (Ice Fairy #3)

Ice Fairy 3

With Olympic Gold in his possession, Sam is the newest darling of the skating world. Brett does his best to be supportive but the brighter the light shines on his boyfriend; the more he is left in the shadows. Cracks appear and the relationship begins to break down.
Their friends try their best to assist however they can. Their advice and support is crucial when Brett suspects Sam’s creepy agent is up to no good; and even more so when a dastardly plot by Sam’s own father is uncovered.
Can this couple finally come to terms with fame and find the peace they crave? An offer by Ryan and Caleb might provide the answers they seek…if they’re brave enough to take a leap of faith.
Is it too late for Brett and his precious Ice Fairy or can they come together?

Glitch!

I want to apologize for the barrage of emails that happened every time I changed a page or post. I intended to turn it off, but didn’t know how until yesterday. So, I apologize again for the inundations of emails! From now on, only new posts will trigger an email.

Thank you for your patience and support 🙂

Complication

via Daily Prompt: Complication

I’m a day late on this one…but beside that ‘complication’…ha ha.

I actually wrote a book called “Complications” and no, this isn’t a shameless plug, but a fact of life that we all have things happen that cause our lives to be well, complex.

We make choices daily on what food we’ll eat, clothes, where to go, etc. We equally have the choices on whom to speak with, how to speak, and in what format. The difference between face-to-face and an email are miles apart.

Complication in life is avoidable, though not completely. You cannot predict medical disasters or feelings out of the blue, but with careful thought and mindfulness, we can at least reduce a little of it.

Narcissism

via Daily Prompt: Narcissism

 

If you have never dealt with a narcissist, consider yourself lucky and blessed. Seriously. Go buy a lottery ticket because you are super fortunate!

Narcissists make you believe that you are going insane. I’ve had supervisors like this in the past (they strive to be in power positions even though they are unable to handle it like a true leader) and that makes it awful on everyone else.

Do yourself a favor…if you sniff out one of these birds, get yourself a new gig, transfer, or be prepared to shell out $$ for counseling.
