Lia Finch was a popular college cheerleader with a bright future at her fingertips. One fateful night, a terrible incident redefined her, making her literally run for the hills. Her new life is one of routine and caution. She can't ever risk becoming that person again. When she meets Cale, he threatens everything she's worked so hard to become.
Cale has had a life of heartache and pain. Everyone he has ever cared about has left him. Now he lives a lonely, empty life. When he meets Lia, his crippled heart starts to beat again. She's an enigmatic woman that wars daily between being incredibly tough and completely terrified. He wants to help her win that war.
When their pasts resurface and collide with the present, the one shot they have at a future together is at stake.
Can they find a way to be whole again and still find a place in each other's hearts?
“Look,” she said in a tone that made me think she’d said this little speech a few times before. “You’re a nice guy and I am extremely sorry I maced you—even if you did deserve it.”
That last part had me cocking an eyebrow. I grinned at her and she couldn’t help but return it. But she slowly dropped the smile and continued on.
“It’s just that you are a client and it’s unprofessional. I’d never do that to Pops. Can we please just call a truce so we can carry on a strictly professional relationship?”
She was the kind of girl I wanted to say yes to. To make her world spin just the way she liked it. She was my green-eyed goddess and I her lonely disciple, waiting for her every command. But this? No, this I couldn’t do.
“No,” I muttered quietly, causing her eyes to dart to mine and search for where I was going with this.
“What do you mean, ‘no’?” she hissed.
In three long strides, I marched up to her petite frame and pinned her to the table with my closeness, never actually touching her. She didn’t shrink back like I’d somehow expected her to. Instead, she held that beautiful chin high, eyes glued to mine.
Leaning my head down to where my lips almost touched the skin below her ear, my hot breath assaulted her flesh. “No.”
By day, I run around from appointment to appointment, wearing many hats including, mom, wife, part-time graphic designer, blogger, networker, social media stalker, student, business owner, and book boyfriend hunter. (It’s actually a thing—complete with pink camo. I lurk around the internet, “researching” pictures of hot guys who fit the profile of whatever book boyfriend I’m reading or writing about)
I guess you can blame my obsession with books on my lovely grandmother, who is quite possibly my favorite person on the planet. At an early age, she took me to the half-priced bookstore each weekend and allowed me to choose a book. Every single time, she caved when I begged for two. Without her encouragement, I wouldn’t have been able to cope during some hard times without my beloved books.
Currently, I am finishing up my college degree that has taken me forever to complete. It’s just on the list of my many “bucket-list” goals that I subject myself to.
Most days, you can find me firmly planted in front of my computer. It’s my life. If the world ever loses power, I’d be one of the first to die—of boredom! But I guess as long as I have books and a light, I might just survive.
Looking forward, you can expect to see two more novels in the Breaking the Rules Series. I’m nearly finished with the third. Also, I have a standalone novel that will be released soon as well.
This writing experience has been a blast, and I’ve met some really fabulous people along the way. I hope my readers enjoy reading my stories as much as I do writing them. I look forward to connecting with you all!
