My baby a/k/a novel Crazy Beautiful Lies is in the final editing stages. The cover is sitting in a file on my computer waiting to be revealed! To say the least, I’m super excited. . .yet, scared to death! My characters Blake DeLuca and Jenna Capwell have given me one hell of a rollercoaster ride! I’ve yelled at them, cried with them, slammed the laptop closed and put them in time-out while lying awake until wee hours of the morning because I couldn’t stop thinking about their chemistry.
What’s this story about?
Jenna Capwell has the perfect life with Ryan Williams, or so she thought. To give her closure on his betrayals she has a chance meeting with Blake DeLuca who mistakes her for a call girl from an elite escort service. On a whim she makes the decision to be reckless and carefree with her immediate attraction to Mr. Hot and Sex On a Stick. Six months later he learns her true identity by a chance meeting and the bad boy makes an offer for a no strings “friends with benefit” relationship. Why not? Sizzling sparks fly in their wild affair and hearts become involved. . .Until she makes a decision bringing Mr. Bad Ass Blake DeLuca to his knees, one that changes the rules and suffers consequences. Can she survive another heartbreak and can he survive her betrayal?
Enjoy a few teasers from Chapter One:
Absently, I twirled my engagement ring still on my left ring finger. He was my best friend, my lover, my soul mate. Tears streamed down my face onto my black silk blouse and I didn’t try to stop them. This would be the last time I would be this close to his body, before they lower the elegant bronze casket into the ground. I squeezed my eyes closed, trying to block out the sounds of sobbing surrounding me. People mourned, but none were as broken as me.
Webb’s voice spat liquid poison, “There are circumstances that will change your mind. Make you love him less.”
There are several others I wanted to share. . .like the circumstances. I’ve been told by some who have critiqued my story it’ll bring you to edge of your seat.
More posts coming soon and I cannot wait until the cover is revealed!!
Until next time,
