Find on Goodreads –


I thought I’d left Blackwater, Texas behind for good. I didn’t belong in the small town, but my dad wouldn’t listen. He dragged me back home in his beat-up truck and dropped a bomb along the way: Chase Matthews was moving in with us. He was the golden boy of my high school, my former best friend, and the last person I wanted sleeping across the hall. His presence was too great a reminder of the ghosts I was trying to forget.

I didn’t ask for a hero. I don’t want to be saved.

To me, Lilah Calloway meant late nights sneakin’ out, moonlit hair, and sparklers in July. She was my best friend until the day she left and I’d assumed Blackwater had seen the last of her. Then, like a tempest, she rolled back into town for the final half of senior year. The chopped hair and dark devil-may-care attitude warned most people away, but I knew if I fought hard enough, I could find the lost girl.

I didn’t want to be her hero. Some girls don’t need to be saved.

I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors include Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I’m a comedy geek and love all things “funny”. Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.

REVIEW | Beauty And The Bachelor by Naima Simone

beauty-and-the-bachelor-1600x2400Title: Beauty And The Bachelor
Author: Naima Simone
Series: Bachelor Auction #1
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 10th 2015

Billionaire Lucas Oliver is hell bent on revenge. And his plan begins when Sydney Blake—the stunning daughter of his enemy—is tricked into bidding on Lucas at a bachelor auction. Then he serves up a little blackmail…followed by a marriage proposal Sydney has no choice but to accept.

Sydney has been controlled by her family her whole life. When Lucas threatens to reveal her father’s shady business, she is once again forced to do her duty for her family. But worse—oh so much worse—is the rush of lust that Lucas ignites in her blood.

Lucas is determined to make Sydney suffer, but it’s tough when he can’t keep from touching her–or thinking about touching her–all the time. She’s not fairing much better since she’s engaged to a darkly handsome beast intent on destroying her entire family…along with her heart.


4,9 STARS!!!

Lucas Oliver has a plan. He is going to get revenge on the man who ruined his life 15 years ago. He has to use Sydney, the beautiful daughter of his enemy, to get his revenge. Sydney has always been controlled, from put-downs about her weight or wild hair, to marrying a man she doesn’t love to help save her fathers business, she is used to sacrificing herself for those she loves. What should have been a simple bachelor auction where she was going to bid on her fiance, ends up with the wrong man and being blackmailed into a marriage she doesn’t want.

This read had a surprising amount of emotion that I wasn’t expecting in a romance. It isn’t just about an expected relationship developing into love. This was about learning to forgive oneself, love oneself, and stop taking other people’s crap and expectations of you. It is about learning to forgive, learning how to grow, and learning how to let go.

Lucas and Sydney are pretty wonderful together and what they do for one another made this book so much more enjoyable. It’s not just about self-sacrifice: it’s about wonder, and trust, and everything in between. Discovery of oneself and acknowledging that just because someone is related to you, doesn’t mean they aren’t a complete and utter a-hole.

Romance and sexiness abounds, and when these two finally reach the point you’re hoping for, it’s so tender and sweet and sigh-inducing.





3232449I was born the daughter of a sharecropper…okay, maybe not. But, I am the daughter of a pastor from whom I inherited my love of romance. The man can preach a mean Song of Solomon! (There’s that plug, Daddy! You can pay me later!)

Although my first book starred a cucumber named Fred, my first romance came several years later in the seventh grade when I wrote myself as a heroine opposite Ralph Tresvant from New Edition. Through the power of my pen and imagination, Ralph took one look across a crowded stadium, met my dark, mysterious gaze, fell passionately in love and serenaded me in front of millions of fans. Out of all the girls in the world, he chose me! And, of course we lived happily ever after—once we had the inevitable fight, aka black moment, and made up with a passionate declaration of love and fidelity. This same story reincarnated itself many times over the years: with Donnie Wahlberg from New Kids on the Block, Brad Pitt, Denzel Washington, and as recently as last night, Vin Diesel.

Though the characters have changed, my love of love has endured. Shaping the lives of the unique men and women who experience the first, hungry bites of lust, the dizzying heights of passion and the tender, healing heat of love— nothing compares to it. Except maybe discovering new material for love scenes with my husband, the head of Research & Development!

BOOK REVIEW | Paper Heart by Claire Contreras


Title: Paper Heart
Author: Claire Contreras
Series: Hearts Series #2
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 5th 2015

I lost her. No, I didn’t lose her. I threw her away. She was my best friend. I was never supposed to fall in love with her. I was careless. She was heartbroken. I thought I was doing fine. But here she is, years later, forced to work with me, reminding me why I fell in love with her in the first place. And this time I’m going to do everything in my power to never let her go.


5 STARS!!!

Claire Contreras delivered one of the best second chance romance stories that I have read this year. I’m a big fan of second chance stories and Claire has hit a spot with paper Hearts. It captived me from the beginning, let alone the end. It was an amazing experience.

Also this novel includes the Torn Hearts novella. Torn Hearts is a quick recap of heartbreaking downfall of Mia and Jensen.

Mia and Jensen were not only the very best of friends, but their love is something special.They were inseparable. They were in love. A real and true forever kind of love. When Jensen went off to college, things changed. Even when college pulls them apart it’s not until Jensen makes the biggest mistake does this couple crumble. For Mia, there is no forgiveness.

Basically Jensen and Mia go from…


The novella leaves a reader frantic for the release of Paper Hearts.

”Ours was a story that would remain untold, because living it was painful enough.”

Paper Hearts brings five years into the future. Mia takes a freelance photographer position for the same magazine that Jensen works for in NYC. Their paths cross once again. Mia can’t ignore Jensen but her pain is insurmountable and Jensen is simply irresistible.

Mia’s feelings were one hundred percent acceptable to me. Jensen’s regret and heartache was realistically portrayed, which is why I fell for him so easily. Jensen knows the mistake he made was huge, but he wants another chance with the only woman he’s ever truly loved. He wants Mia. As much as Mia tries to deny it, Jensen is still the only man she’s truly loved.He pulls out all the stops to win Mia’s forgiveness and have a future with her.

“You can keep walking away from this, and I’m going to keep letting you, because even when you think you leave, your heart always stays, and it’s something I carry with pride.”

Jensen’s newspaper column was a fantastic addition to the story, and his writing about the love of his life is beyond wonderful.

“Some say I loved her to the point of madness, bordering on obsession… Perhaps they’re all right. Perhaps they’re all right. Perhaps I am mad. And if that’s the case, to be frank, I don’t give a damn. What I know is that she sets me on fire… and I’d rather live my life in flames than be numb without her.”

My most favorite parts in this story were Jensen’s columns ‘Jensen’s Talks’ , it was so easy to get lost in his head and see everything he was thinking and feeling. He made it so easy to love him, he wasn’t perfect, but not everyone is perfect, we all have our flaws.

My thought for today: be cautious with yourself.
Be cautious, because others will beat you down enough. You shouldn’t have to add to that pain. You will, though, because that’s what you do. But you’ll also get back up, because that’s what you do.

There are so many scenes where you will feel gutted by both characters’ pain. There are times where can see the light and all that these two can have if Mia could just let go of the past. If you’re a fan of second chance loves stories, I highly recommend it.
