I sat in my room at our family’s tattoo parlor, Forever Steel staring at the phone. I hadn’t stopped looking at the picture of this crazy, quirky, insanely beautiful blonde haired blue eyed siren that invaded the Jersey Shore a month ago.
Carly Smythe was not my type at all. She was a twenty year old student at Stanford University in California, smart as hell, and funny. The shit kicker was she was so awkwardly unaware of what any man with pulse could see, and that was that she was a damn heartbreaker with a body that made me hard the very first time I saw her.
She made me crazy, she snuck out to see me, and then avoided any sexual advances I made on her, until I finally kissed her, and I didn’t wait for an invitation either: I took those pouty little lips and made them mine.
Carly was also an avid reader of those books, you know “Mommy Porn.” So my game had to be stepped up. Who the hell am I kidding? She could see through my game immediately, and it didn’t have the same effect it did on every other girl I hooked up with. And she didn’t go running for the hills, either. I fell hard… and fast.
Abe (her cousin) knew all the shit that had gone down in my life for the past five and a half years and in order to make this work, which I wanted it to… I needed to set the record straight, put it all on the line, give her the 411, and let her decide if after everything, she still wanted to give it up to a guy like me. A tattooed, pierced, f-up, with a past that was sure to send any girl into a tail spin. She was not any girl, she was…different.
Lets be honest....I saw the name of the series and the photo on the banner and cover and couldn't possibly say no. It is close to Valentine's Day and I am always willing to read a romance.
I thought the romance was okay...but it was totally overshadowed by the constant relationship change between Jase and Carly. One chapter they are together, the next something totally dramatic happens and they are no longer speaking. Very much reminded me of high school and I think it is something a high school student would like.
The characters were developed well. I like that we get to know both of their families a bit. I really liked Jase's family. The author did a really good job at drawing you in and wanting more from this family. His brothers were all crass, smart mouthed, egotistical men that I am looking forward to reading more about in the books that follow.
I laughed at times, was angry at times...and I rolled my eyes a lot. This is definitely a dramarama book.
It wasn't in my top 20 book...but I didn't hate it. It's a good book to read if you are in the mood for a YA Dramarama Romance.

I am very new self published writer,and had no clue what I was getting into, still don’t—but I like it!
My imagination became apparent at age three. Sigma was my very first (imaginary) boyfriend. He lived about fifteen miles from my family’s farm. I took him chicken noodle soup every night on one of our snowmobiles, regardless of the season. Apparently he was very ill and “Thank God” I was able to care for him.
At eight my love for writing blossomed. My cousins and I (of course I was the president) wrote a newsletter and sold it to our family members.
Years later I decided to put it back into print to entertain my cousin on an aircraft carrier on 9/11 and very far away from home during a scary time for our country, (protecting our butts).
Fast forward to 2012. I read 50 shades and thought, I wanna do that!
I have two complete series The Love Series, and Wrapped and two new series Burning Souls and Men of Steel. Thirteen books in sixteen months. CrAzY and wonderful.
I love love! (I would love to reference a Pink song here but I will save my inappropriateness for my books.
I enjoy watching people grow and change with self realization and moments of clarity that sneak up behind you and smack you in the head. I love people and have always been able to see both sides of a story. Each person that comes into our life leaves us with something it is what we choose to do with it that helps us grow.
I live in central New York in the middle of nowhere and am surrounded by family and friend. I ran a small business out of my home and have recently closed my door to pursue this dream full time. I spend time writing and doing the typical Mommy things. Our house is full of pets, friends, and noise ninety percent of the time. I would have it no other way.
I love people,music, laughter, hugs, books, and talking about books.
I’m very excited to share that I have recently signed and am now represented by with Marissa Corvisiero.
