What happens when you create rules to keep others out?
One thing Emerson Moore has come to terms with is that she is the school slut. She knows her way around a frat house and how to get what she wants. She doesn’t make any excuses for her actions and she doesn’t pretend to be anything different. She is who she is and with that she knows how to have a good time. She’s made rules to keep relationships at bay and avoid the demons of her past.
When her best friend, Cole has his two friends from back home move in with him she begins to think she has met her match with Jaxon Riley. Jax is the perfect mixture of tattooed muscle and a sweet-talking mouth. With “hand” written notes, a voice that exudes sex and knowing just how to get under her skin, Jaxon learns how to break all the rules.
But will he just end up breaking her heart anyway?
I am trying to think of the best way I can express my emotions about this book without it sounding like every other review...
If you have a beating heart, it will be twisted and turned while you fight back the tears! I swear I felt everything that Emerson did throughout the story! I was in such a slump with books that I was scared I was falling out of love, but the last few have really sparked me back up! And this one, well it takes the whole damn cake!!!
I loved the fact that the screwed up one was the girl! It wasn't the standard girl with a bad past can't open up. No, it was the everyone in my life ruined me that I have sex with lots of guys and won't get close. Usually the guy is the whore, but Emerson proudly claimed that title and made it well known! She had her rules of course, and they kept her from making too many enemies, and hurting guys who have no chance at a relationship with her. That is of course until Jaxon walks in the picture! And what a first impression he got!!! It's juicy ;)
Jaxon knows the rules and they start out as friends, but we all know that can only last so long!! Once the sexual tension is too much they give in with full disclosure that it will go no where. But Jaxon doesn't give up and after ups and downs he breaks the barriers; only Emerson won't admit it.
Will Emerson be able to give in to love, or will her fear consume and ruin the best thing in her life? Will Jaxon be strong enough to stand by her, or will he walk away when it's too much? His mom said they will both screw up but it's what they do after that makes or breaks them... There is SO much that happens and I don't want to spoil it! My kids kept asking me why I was crying and looked funny when I said the book. It was an emotional ride that I want to ride over and over! Although there is NOT a cliffhanger, I am hoping there will be a book 2 because 1 is just not enough!

I'm a wanderer, an adventurer, a traveler.
I want to see it all. I haven't been everywhere but it's on my list.

Lately if I'm not traveling or chasing a toddler, I'm writing. Which is weird because I hated writing in college. Oh wait, that's because that was boring. Who really wants to sit there and cite all your sources into APA format? Not this girl. Writing for yourself is enjoyable and cathartic. Please try it. Then tell me about because I love indie authors.
When I was 19, I packed up and followed my high school sweetheart from Texas to California. We had a blast living it up in San Diego. Four years later we made a crazy decision and packed up again and moved to Germany. What? Yep, you read that right. Guess what? Best decision ever! We OWNED Europe. For three years we saw as much as we possibly could. We lived an hour outside of France, a couple from Switzerland and Italy. Most amazing time of my life. Please go out there and see the world, you won't regret it. After Europe we moved back to California, and for now we're just debating our next adventure.
I earned a degree in Child Development. And now I write novels. Makes perfect sense! I write because I walk around all day with these stories in my head. It's nice to be able to get them out of my head in an organized fashion. I hope that someone out there enjoys them, because I have enjoyed so many others'.
