My ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Review of Birdy (Upper Echelon Duet Book 1) by Dee Garcia @deegarciabooks

Birdy RB Banner

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

Crassy, sassy, and brassy, that’s Birdy. She’s loyal to a fault and has a heart of gold, but she doesn’t show it often. She loves her family and wants to provide for them, but the only way she can will lead to trouble and danger. It can also lead her to a man who will love her and respect her as well as help her find her true path in life. Unfortunately, they have some obstacles to overcome first. She did the crime and the time, now I only hope that she can follow the right path and stay on it. Time will tell. Birdy thinks she’s in falling for Angel, but she has reservations and those only prove true after she finds herself behind bars for up to seven years.

I really enjoyed this book. The toughness of Birdy and her loyalty to those that are in her inner circle shows that she is a good person, the only problem is that she is led down the wrong path. The struggles that she goes through in her life before prison, during prison, and now that she is out, show her true character. I look forward to seeing if her path leading forward will continue in the right direction. I love the characters and the story, and I look forward to the next book in the Duet.

I give this book a 5-star review. I love Ms. Garcia’s books and she has not disappointed on this book. Her ability to write characters that are like old friends of mine, is what always pulls me into her books. I picture Birdy as an old classmate of mine and it’s like reading about an old friend. I love the turmoil, danger, and choices that the characters go through. I love the darkness of their lives, situations, and decisions that they have to make to survive, and make no mistake, they are doing this purely to survive. If you like stories of strong women, cartel’s, or romantic situations with characters that shouldn’t be together, you will enjoy Birdy. Birdy is a great character and the men around her only enhance her personality.

The Wolf (Gypsy Bastards MC #1)

by Jade Marshall

the wolf-complete


Being hurt and alone is nothing new to Hadley. She’s survived on her own for as long as she can remember, and no one will dictate the way she lives her life. With loss and pain dominating her memories, how can she put her faith in someone again?

Having no one to depend on besides his club has hardened Brandon to the outside world—and it’s exactly how he prefers it. The moment he lets people get close they always find a way to backstab him. There’s no room for love in his world.

Hadley and Brandon need a reason to let their walls down and let love in. Can two broken souls find a way to save each other?



the wolf-3D-eReader


Moving on from the disappointment of Wolf not stopping me, I get comfortable. I get out of my jeans and sneakers, loosen the knot in Wolf’s t-shirt, and bundle my hair on my head in a messy bun. My hangover has completely left me and I decide to have a glass of wine and relax. A knock at my door has me putting down the glass and moving toward it. Storm sent a message earlier, saying she would be stopping by later to check on me. I don’t check the peephole but fling the door open, expecting to find her on the other side. Instead, Wolf stands there staring at me. His gaze scans me from top to toe before a mask of rage covers his face. He propels me back into the apartment, shutting the door behind him with the heel of his boot before he crowds me against the wall.

“Do you always answer the door half fucking naked?”

His voice is a low growl that causes goosebumps to pop up along my arms. “Huh?”

I know what he’s asking, but having him this close to me has fried my brain.

“Or were you expecting someone else?” He stares deep into my eyes as he waits for an answer.

“Who do you think I would be expecting?” Goading him probably isn’t the best idea, but at this moment, it’s all I have.

“Justice? Or perhaps whoever taught you how to ride on a bike?”

A burst of laughter leaves me. When it comes to this man, I rarely react the way I’m supposed to.

“Justice? Sure, he’s cute and all, but he just turned eighteen. That wouldn’t work for me. As for the riding, he won’t be coming around again.”

“So, you simply walk around half-naked and open the door without even checking first?”

Staring up at him, I have no answer. He steps closer and stands against me. His erection presses into my stomach and a sound I don’t even recognize leaves me. I sound wanton and needy.

Before I can comprehend what’s happening, Wolf crashes his mouth down on mine. His kiss isn’t soft. He runs his tongue along the seam of my lips before nipping at my bottom lip, prompting me to gasp. The moment my mouth opens, his tongue invades inside. His kiss overwhelms and dominates me, triggering my body to melt into him.

His hands glide down my back to grip my ass as he lifts me into the air. Wrapping my legs around him, I pull him closer to me. He grinds his considerable hard-on against my pussy and I moan out loud again. Not having had sex in over three years has clearly turned me into a wanton slut. The feel of his hands, lips, and erection drives me to the brink of insanity. With his body pressing me firmly against the wall, his hands are free to roam over my body.

His left hand slips beneath the hem of my t-shirt and works its way up to my breast. Then he holds my breast before giving it a slight squeeze. The roughness of his hand adds to the sensations he’s creating. Taking my nipple between two of his fingers, he pinches it while grinding his erection against my center. My orgasm takes me by surprise and I whimper into his mouth. Never have I come so quickly for a man, especially with him barely having touched me. Wolf presses his face into my neck, panting heavily while I come down from my high.

“Shit.” He draws in another deep breath. “I didn’t mean to do that. I only want to talk to you.”

Nodding is the only reply I have for him. All capacity to form words and sentences has fled me. Slowly, he lowers me to my feet, but he doesn’t let go. Instead, he tilts my head back and kisses me again. This kiss is soft and exploratory and unrushed. My hands move of their own volition, around his neck and twisting into his hair as he slowly continues to seduce my mouth.

“I’m going to leave before this goes any further, but I want to get to know you. I want to spend time with you. Go out with me tomorrow?”

“I can’t.” My reply has a scowl instantly appearing on his face. Touching my lips to his, I explain, “I’m on shift tomorrow.”

“Fuck that. I’ll sort that out as long as you give me a chance.”

He looks so hopeful as he waits for me to answer. After I nod my agreement, he kisses me before he pulls away.

“I’ll pick you up at six. You should wear something comfortable.”

He grabs my phone and programs his number in it before calling himself. He lightly kisses my forehead before returning to his motorcycle, leaving me behind wanting more.

My Review:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

Strong women, Alpha males, lots of action and danger.

She just wants to survive and stay below the radar, but circumstances won’t let her do that. Now she has to fight for her life again. This time though, she will have the best men backing her and protecting her, not only one man. Hadley is on the run from the Iron Disciples. She grew up in the MC, but after her father’s death, Hadley, her brother and her mother all became property of the Iron Disciples. When the President, King wanted to take her for his own, that’s when she became a woman on the run.

Wolf is the enforcer of the Gypsy Bastards; he’s a hardened man and he became that way after a tragic loss. Now he just wants to work in his paint shop and do his job in the MC as the enforcer. One night at the Dusk to Dawn strip club has his mind elsewhere. The first time he saw Hadley, he wanted her for his own, but he fights himself because it feels like a betrayal. When he finds her at the club house and saves her from falling from the bar top, he knows that it will be a losing battle.

I devoured this book. It was full of tragedy, action, destruction, and great characters. There are two MC’s that are a danger to Hadley and the Gypsy Bastards, but these guys will go to any length to protect her and when they bring in another ally MC to help them out, they will find Hadley’s strength shine through. She was a beaten down woman who wanted to hide, but when she finds her voice and her backbone, look out because she will become a woman to be reckoned with. I love the characters, the plot, and the story line. Ms. Marshall did a great job writing this book and I look forward to more in the Gypsy Bastards MC. Hopefully Pope and Storm or Mad Dog and Kaiya? I give this story a 5-star review and hope there is more coming soon. If you are a reader who likes MC, women who come out on top, men who worship their women, or like a steamy love story, you should one-click The Wolf. For a first book this is an awesome start to your writing career! I want a Gypsy Bastard of my own.

Release Blitz and Review for Something Twisted (In The Twisted World) by Ace Gray @acekgray @GiveMeBooksPR

RB Banner

Title: Something Twisted
A Twisted World Series Standalone
Author: Ace Gray
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: May 28, 2020

Something Twisted Ebook Cover


I’d spent my life as a plaything. A toy to be used by powerful and deadly men in whatever way they pleased. So I was just as surprised as anyone else that I had feelings left. Feelings that lead me to fight for true love while damning myself.

And that’s just where this story begins.

Desperate and alone I turned back to my childhood home. The first wicked place I’d known with the darkest villain among them. My stepfather. But I could weather his storm in exchange for safety. I had to.

What I didn’t expect to find was Niall McDonough. The only man I’d ever really loved had reappeared only to become one of them. Someone ruthless and cruel. He wants to ruin me. As my stepfather’s savage soldier he might just do it.

But then again, twelve years ago a fortune teller predicted I’d need just such a soldier to save both my heart and soul.

Something Twisted Teaser 6

“My, my, this is interesting. Perhaps Deirdre is an appropriate name after all.”
“What the shit is going on here?” My mind was clearing. Sort of.
“I’m reading your future, darling. Your dismal and sorrowful future.”
I felt like I’d been hit. Hard. And I knew what it was like to be punched, slapped, kicked… I tried to shake off the list.
“What does it say?” My words were shaky, no matter how I tried to steady them.
“You will cause much unrest in this little corner of the world.”
The hair on the back of my neck stood up. No, was on the tip of my tongue. My mom had gotten me out of a life of mobsters and murderers. I wasn’t an Ulster anymore. I wouldn’t be. I was just another teenaged girl wondering about her future.
“Rivers of blood. Chaos and pain. Betrayal all at your hand,” she mused in partial phrases. “You will need a soldier at your side if you wish to be free of it all.”
“A soldier?” I swallowed, sorrow swelling in my heart.
“Someone to wage war. Someone ruthless and brutal and savage.” She arched her eyebrow. “If you don’t find him, you both end up dead. Just like the legend.”
I rolled my eyes with a wild grunt and shoved up from the table. “Convenient legend,” I snarked under my breath.
“Heed my words or don’t, it makes no matter to me. It’s your fate and your fate alone that you have to face.” She shrugged before unwinding to stand. Incense swirled around her again as she walked toward the back corner of the room.
I shoved up from the stupid pillows on the stupid floor of the stupid Irish gypsy and started to stomp off.
“Today, lightning will strike, Deirdre of the sorrows.” Her voice seemed far away, too far away. “Take that as a sign of what’s been set in motion.”

Something Twisted Live

My Review:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

Dark, depraved, twisted, dangerous, and damaged.

Deirdre needs someone who will stand up for her and protect her from the one person who should be there for her. Her stepfather is the head of the Ulster Mafia family, and he’s the man that Deirdre needs to be protected from. One dark, twisted night will leave her broken and feeling damaged, it will also lead her to years of more twisted treatment, until she finds the strength to get away and seek help, only to find herself in danger and trouble again. The one man that she has never forgotten is not the same man she tried to protect years ago.

Niall McDonough loved Deirdre twelve years ago. He would have done anything for her, until she chose someone else over him and left him. He was framed and went to jail for a crime he didn’t commit. Now he’s working for her stepfather as one of his soldiers. He’s dark, twisted and angry. He’s a killer with no remorse and he hates her with all of his being. So why does it hurt so much to see Mac Ulster put his hands on her and have his men use her?

This was my first read of an Ace Gray book, but I am now hooked. I found this story to be so dark, twisted, depraved and an excellent read. Deirdre and Niall have a love story for the ages, and they have a long way to go to get back to where they once were with a lot of blood and tears in between. They have a lot to overcome if they want to live a happy life together and they have to fight for it all the way. The Irish mafia families are brutal, twisted and very deadly. None of them seem to work together. They are all their own islands with their own paths in life. They fight amongst themselves more than against other mafia families.

I loved this story and had to look up Ace Gray on Amazon for her other books In The Twisted World, I one-clicked Twisted Fate (A Twisted Fairy Tale Duet Book 1) and can’t wait to read it. I loved the characters and the plot of the story. I can’t wait to read more about the twins and how their lives will change. I look forward to more her books in this world too. I give this book a 5-star review and suggest it to readers who like dark, mafia romance, or stories of how love and hate hover over a fine line. Ace Gray sure knows how to draw out the feelings between these two.

Review of Rev’d: The Lion’s Den MC by CJ Allison #TuesdayBookBlog @cjallisonauthor @kikilovesbooks

Rev'd banner

⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 3.5 out of 5

Rev’d was to be a Rabbi, but he didn’t want that life. He joined the Marines and served his duty to the US. When he left the Marines, he didn’t know where to go or what to do. He bought a Harley and the rest was history. Now he’s the President of the Lion’s Den MC at a young age.

Gabriella lives in the Good Ol’ Boy world of the law. She is a para-legal in a big law firm. Her ultimate goal is to be in the courtroom with her own cases though. She is not a woman who likes to give up control. She has three different personas, the legal powerhouse, Gabriella; the girl next door, Gabby; and Rev’s Queen.

The Lion’s Den has been working to clean up neighborhoods with a man who has he money to do it. They are the muscle to keep the areas clean and the rebuilding to continue, keeping the gangs out. The only problem is that there is one gang that can’t seem to get the hint. When the Lion’s Den decide to branch out and work with the Polish mob things get a little on the tense side. There are secrets in the family that will come out, but there are pluses to the situation. The story is a quick paced read. I enjoyed the quick read and found it to be an engaging story. The characters are likable, and the plot was good, but it didn’t have that wow factor for me. With that being said, I would not pass up on reading more of The Lion’s Den MC stories. I think KO’s book might be pretty good just from what was in this one. I give the story a 3.5-star review and if you like MC romance or stories with kink, I think you would like this book.

Increasing her pace, a chill worked its way through Evie’s limbs. The sun was almost finished setting, and that meant it would be dark soon. Evie hated the dark. She was automatically at a disadvantage with Troy in the dark. Another disadvantage she should say. He could still see, she was blind. It was an extra layer of protection for him, like he needed that.

Luca had offered Evie a ride, but she’d declined, hoping the fresh air would clear her mind. As the echoes of her steps filled the air, she started to regret her decision. At this very moment, she could be sitting next to him in his warm car, breathing in his musky scent.

Evie could almost hear his deep voice in the back of her mind. Feel the vibration of his words. A smile touched Evie’s lips at the thought.

No. What was she doing?

Shaking her head, Evie pushed down the feelings. Feelings were dangerous. They were the reason she was where she was in her life at the moment. Luca was dangerous to her. She had to keep her distance, no matter how much her body wanted her to do otherwise.
As the hairs on the back of Evie’s neck stood up, she suddenly had the feeling of being followed. Subtly, as to not draw any attention, Evie turned her head to look down the road behind her. Nothing.

Taking a calming breath, she forced herself to maintain her pace, even though her legs wanted to race. She could see her house up ahead. Then she would be inside with the semblance of safety. Not far to go.

A rustling noise behind Evie sounded. This time she did stop. Turning, she stared out to the empty street. Again, there was nothing. About to turn back, the sight of fresh shoe tracks in the mud next to the path caught her attention.

Turning back to her house, this time, she did increase her pace.
Stop being stupid, Evie, there are dozens of people who use this path.
So why did it stick out to her?

My Review:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

An Action-Packed, page turner.

He’s a SEAL with abilities beyond anyone’s imagination. He works with a Team that have a variation of abilities that they don’t want the outside world to know about. The problem is that they didn’t volunteer to be used as guinea pigs for the experiments that made them who they are now. Luca Kirwin can run faster than most men, hear better than most people, and he can see in the dark. His fighting abilities are stronger and more lethal than the regularly trained SEAL. His mission along with his SEAL Team is to find the people behind the project that enhanced their abilities and stop them from doing any more research or harm to people.

Evie Scott is a woman on the run from her past. She escaped an abusive relationship and is now trying to find herself while staying alive. When she meets her new neighbor, she is petrified of him because he represents everything she is running from. Now he’s the only person who makes her feel safe. She has a lot of secrets and doesn’t want to get too close to anyone. Her main objective, other than staying alive, is to decode the encrypted file she stole from her ex. She needs to find out why he is the way he is and if the person he is now is the person he has always been. Did she miss something when they started dating? Was he always that mean, or did something change him?

This story is full action, secrets, and some really ALPHA males. They are deadly, loyal, and determined to stop those involved in Project Arma. Evie and Luca are the perfect couple and the story was great. I give the story a 5-star review and cannot wait for more in the Project Arma men. These guys don’t trust easily but when you gain their trust you become part of their family and they always protect their family. I one-clicked Uncovering Project Arma and cannot wait to read it. If you like Alpha males, strong women, ex-military men, or suspense and powerful groups that do any kind of experiments they want, stories, you will really like Luca.

Release and Review: Zhànshì by Anna Edwards @AnnaEdwardsWriter @EJBookPromos #TuesdayBookBlog

Title: Zhànshì
Series: Sinister Fairytales Collection
Author: Anna Edwards
Genre: Dark Fairytale Retelling
Release Date: May 26, 2020


Lia has known she was different since the age of five when her father taught her the skills of her ancestors. His stories of heroic exploits have fueled her fantasies for years. Little did she know that her expertise would be called upon when two cities, two triads, go to war. Will it be a step too far to think she can hide who she really is?
Jaxon has known his career path since he was a little boy when his father promised his only son to the leader of the Yu Shi triad. Jaxon doesn’t mind—it allows him to center his chaotic thoughts and fight his opponents to the death. But when he’s partnered with a mysterious new recruit, he begins to question everything he knows. What is the young boy hiding from him?
Zhanzhi is a modern day retelling of the tale of Mulan for the Sinister Fairytales Collection. Warrior Lia must find her inner strength to defeat a deadly enemy, who’s been left bitter by his quest for absolute power, while at the same time falling in love when she least expects it. Nothing will be as it seems in this dark triad world where a moment’s hesitation can be your downfall.



All I am a British author, from the depths of the rural countryside near London. In a previous life, I was an accountant from the age of twenty-one. I still do that on occasions, but most of my life is now spent intermingling writing while looking after my husband, two children and two cats (probably in the inverse order to the one listed!). When I have some spare time, I can also be found writing poetry, baking cakes (and eating them), or behind a camera snapping like a mad paparazzi.
I’m an avid reader who turned to writing to combat my depression and anxiety. I have a love of travelling and like to bring this to my stories to give them the air of reality.
I like my heroes hot and hunky with a dirty mouth, my heroines demure but with spunk, and my books full of dramatic suspense.


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

A dark retelling of Mulan in the Sinister Fairytales Collection.

Lia Zhanshi is a young woman who does not want to live her life in the traditions of the Yu Shi, as her family has done since her grandfather was brought to San Francisco years ago to make a better life for himself and his family. He promised his duty to the Yu Shi as well as his son and the next generations to come.

Jaxon is known as the blond demon of the Yu Shi. He rises to the second in command of the Yu Shi after the leader’s brother is killed during a recent battle. Jaxon does not look like the rest of the Yu Shi; he has blond hair and looks to be of European descent. His story of becoming a Yu Shi warrior is unique.

This was an action packed, fast-paced story that I loved. I love Mulan and this story, while being a dark retelling, followed some of the plot of Mulan and I really enjoyed it. The characters were entertaining, enjoyable to read and life like. Being from California, it was easy to picture some of the areas they were describing in the story which made it that more entertaining to me. I was drawn in from the prologue, where Lia is being trained by her warrior father and the pull to the story remained throughout the book. I have enjoyed the Sinister Fairytales Collection that have been published so far and this book did not disappoint. They certainly are not the fairytales I was told as a young girl or that I read to my daughter, but they are perfect for me now. I give this story a 5-star review and highly recommend Zhanshi to readers who like fairytale retellings, strong women and the men that complete them, or stories of mafia wars.

Come to the United States, they said.
Freedom and endless opportunities for all, they said.
So we did—made the ninety-mile trek overseas from Havana to Key West.

What they didn’t tell us was how hard these supposed opportunities would be to obtain when you’re an illegal alien. A fact that forced both my brother and I onto a dark path in an effort to help our family.

The difference between Tommy and I?
He didn’t get caught.

Had I stayed away from Arcángel—the illusive, faceless mastermind behind the Upper Echelon—I might not have gotten caught either.

Now, I’m paying the price, rotting away at the hands of the judicial system and facing possible deportation after serving my time.

Can’t get worse, right?

Enter Andrés Bala—the new C.O. at the Annex who fits the tall, dark, and handsome stereotype to a T. It’s clear the man wants me, and I don’t understand why.

Why I want him.
I’m a criminal…he strives for justice.

So wrong yet so right, we end up crossing the line, and after a sneaky, whirlwind affair, he vows to wait for me.

The question now is: can Andrés handle la Jefa outside the confines of her cage?

by Danielle M. Haas
Publication Date: May 25, 2020
Genres / Tropes: Adult, Entangled: Amara, Romantic Suspense, Mystery, BODYGUARD/PROTECTOR


Monica’s stomach fluttered with excitement as she told the interesting man she’d been flirting with online for weeks all about her weekend plans. He was a great match, and they had so many things in common. But sometimes your life can come down to one single bad decision…

NYPD Computer-crimes detective Connor Mitchel’s sister is missing. As he combs through his sister’s life, he realizes Monica might not have been this killer’s first target—or his last. In a twisted game of cat and mouse, Connor thinks he’s finally found the man responsible for his sister’s disappearance. Unfortunately, he’ll first need to convince the shy, distrustful Evelyn Price she could be the next victim tangled in the murderer’s web if she doesn’t agree to help him catch the killer. But just as Connor and Evelyn close in on their quarry, the killer has one last trick up his sleeve that could trap them all…


Danielle grew up with a love of reading, partly due to her namesake—Danielle Steele. It seemed as though she was born to write out the same love stories she devoured while growing up.
She attended Bowling Green State University with a dream of studying creative writing, but the thought of sharing her work in front of a group of strangers was enough to make her change her major to Political Science.
After college she moved across the state of Ohio with her soon-to-be husband. Once they married and had babies, she decided to stay home and raise her children. Some days her sanity slipped further across the line to crazy town so she decided to brush off her rusty writing chops and see what happened.
Danielle now spends her days running kids around, playing with her beloved dog, and typing as fast as she can to get the stories in her head written down. She loves to write contemporary romance with relatable characters that make her readers’ hearts happy, as well as fast-paced romantic suspense that leaves them on the edge of their seats. Her story ideas are as varied and unpredictable as her everyday life.

My Review:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5

Police Officer Connor Mitchell is beside himself his sister is missing, and he has no idea where she is. The police have no leads and the only lead he has is tenuous at best. The only change in her life is the dating service she signed up for and the one person she chatted with on the site. Connor is following leads and working with a PI to find his sister, but he’s afraid that he won’t find her in time to save her. She’s all the family he has left and can’t lose her too.

Evelyn is looking for a job to keep the nice apartment that she lives in with her best friend, Lacy and her daughter. She needs a job that she can do from home because she doesn’t do well in crowds or in public at all really. Her childhood taught her that monsters were real and that they could be anyone, they didn’t necessarily look like monsters. When she has the opportunity to do website work for a high school classmate, she meets with him but she’s jumpy the whole time, and when she receives a phone call from a police officer asking her about her meeting with Gabriel, she is wary of the officer and his questions.

This was an action-packed book with suspense, danger, and a twisted minded psychopath. There are no leads or evidence of where Monica Mitchell has disappeared to, but her brother is determined to find her and will stop at nothing to get her back. The characters in this story were well written and entertaining to read. I really enjoyed the story but thought that there could have been more to the ending of the story. There should have been some follow through with the ending. With that being said, I still give the book a 4-star review because it is well written and full of action and suspense with a twist, and suggest it to readers who enjoy psychological thrillers, police procedural, or characters that show their strength even after being beaten down or destroyed most of their lives. Their real strength comes out when they find the will and the one person that will be beside them no matter what. There are characters in this story that are twisted but they will be discovered, and justice will be served.

I don’t do well with emotions and yucky love stuff. I do the best I can, but at the end of the day, I’m better at showing someone I love them by fighting for them. That’s the way I’ve always been and how I’ll always be. And I have one helluva fight ahead of me. I’ll do anything for the people I love, but what I didn’t expect was to be fighting the one person I thought would always be on my side. I don’t know if I can ever forgive him for this or if we can ever move forward. Some betrayals are just unforgivable. 
Life is going great. I have the woman I love by my side and a kid that is quickly becoming a huge part of my life. What can go wrong? Then it happens. One phone call changes my world in such a profound way that I’m not sure anything will ever be the same again. I risk losing it all with my decisions, but I have to stand up for what I believe is right. I just hope that when the dust settles, I still have someone on my side.

I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.
