Cora Lewis is a whole lot of fun, and she knows how to keep her tattooed bad boy friends in line. But all that flash and sass hide the fact that she’s never gotten over the way her first love broke her heart. Now she has a plan to make sure that never happens again: She’s only going to fall in love with someone perfect.

Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He’s stubborn and rigid, he’s bossy and has come back from his final tour of duty fundamentally broken. Rome’s used to filling a role: big brother, doting son, super soldier; and now none of these fit anymore. Now he’s just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes the only color on his bleak horizon.

Perfect isn’t in the cards for these two, but imperfect might just last forever . . .

Opposites in every way . . . except the one that matters

Shaw Landon loved Rule Archer from the moment she laid eyes on him. Rule is everything a straight–A pre-med student like Shaw shouldn’t want–and the only person she’s never tried to please. She isn’t afraid of his scary piercings and tattoos or his wild attitude. Though she knows that Rule is wrong for her, her heart just won’t listen.

To a rebel like Rule Archer, Shaw Landon is a stuck-up, perfect princess-and his dead twin brother’s girl. She lives by other people’s rules; he makes his own. He doesn’t have time for a good girl like Shaw-even if she’s the only one who can see the person he truly is.

But a short skirt, too many birthday cocktails, and spilled secrets lead to a night neither can forget. Now, Shaw and Rule have to figure out how a girl like her and a guy like him are supposed to be together without destroying their love . . . or each other

With his tight leather pants and a sharp edge that makes him dangerous, Jet Keller is every girl’s rock and roll fantasy. But Ayden Cross is done walking on the wild side with bad boys. She doesn’t want to give in to the heat she sees in Jet’s dark, haunted eyes. She’s afraid of getting burned from the sparks of their spontaneous combustion, even as his touch sets her on fire.

Jet can’t resist the Southern Belle with mile-long legs in cowboy boots who defies his every expectation. Yet the closer he feels to Ayden, the less he seems to know her. While he’s tempted to get under her skin and undo her in every way, he knows firsthand what happens to two people with very different ideas about relationships.

Will the blaze burn into an enduring love. . . or will it consume their dreams and turn them to ashes?

about the author

Jay CrownoverI’m supposed to share interesting details about myself so that my readers get to know me so here we go in no particular order: I’m an natural redhead even though I haven’t seen my real hair color in years, I’m a big fan of tattoos and have a half sleeve on either arm and various other pieces all over the place, I’ve been in the bar industry since I was in college and it has always offered interesting insight into how men and women interact with each other, I have 3 dogs that are all crazy, I live in Colorado and love the snow, I love music and in all reality wish I could be a rock star not a writer or a bartender but I have zero talent so there is that.

I love to write, love to read and all I’m interested in is a good story with interesting characters that make the reader feel something.

Book News, Weekly Recap & Upcoming Releases! {10}

Snippets!!

★ It’s a teaser for Until You (Fall Away #1.5) from Penelope Douglas’ Facebook!

I’m bored. Here’s a teaser.

You remember when Jared went back in the house to get his keys to take Tate to Homecoming? Yeah, here’s the convo between him and his mom.

“Alright, but I do have something to say, and you’re not going to like it.” She kept her eyes fixed on her task of fixing my tie and steadied her voice with a firm tone. “Honey, I couldn’t be happier that you and Tate found your way back to each other—“

Oh, Christ.

I started to turn away, but she twisted me back to face her. This definitely sounded like something I didn’t want to talk about!

“But!” she said loudly, probably to get my attention, “baby mommas don’t usually marry baby daddies.” Every word was bit out like I was too stupid to understand.

I cocked my head to the side and looked down at her, indulging this need of hers to make a point I already understood.

Don’t get Tate pregnant. Yeah, thanks. I got it!

“You’ve been over there almost every night—well, every night, actually—and if you make me a thirty-six year old grandmother, I’m going to kill you.”

She was joking.

I think.

★ City of Heavenly Fire snippet from Cassandra Clare’s tumblr!

Alec pulled his knees up to his chest and looked thoughtfully at Jace. “I know,” he said. “I’m not jealous. I always knew, from the first, that everyone thought you were better than me. My dad thought it. The Clave thought it. Izzy and Max looked up to you as the great warrior they wanted to be like. But the day you asked me to be your parabatai, I knew you meant that you trusted me enough to ask me to help you. You were telling me that you weren’t this lone and self-sufficient warrior able to do everything alone. You needed me. So I realized that there was one person who didn’t assume you were better than me. You.”

★ You can read a short excerpt of Reviving Izabel by J.A. Redmerski here.

★ Chapter one of Ilona Andrews’ new book, the Avon story, is up on her blog! Read it here.

★ News from J. Sterling (author of The Perfect Game)!

I have written (note that it doesn’t say AM WRITING) the third and final book in Jack & Cassie’s story!!!!!!!!  I needed more from them.. I needed to go further into their lives, to see them in the future. And I needed to be able to tell them goodbye (although I’ll admit, I’m not sure I can ever truly say goodbye to them- they hold such a strong place in my heart).

Anyway, The Game Changer wasn’t good enough for me. I NEEDED more from Jack and Cassie. And let me tell you, I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS STORY!!!!!  Of course i’ll be terrified the second if comes out and you all can actually read it. But honestly, at this point, I freaking love it. So much happens!!!! And all the characters you care about make an appearance.

MERRY F’N CHRISTMAS!!!  🙂

Let’s all have a CARTER CHRISTMAS (put a lil’ Jack under your tree!)!!!

And it will be released on ALL platforms (not kindle exclusive) so I hope we rock the hell out of this!!!!!!

I am so excited to share the final chapters of J & C’s story with you all. And I cannot thank you enough for all the blessings you’ve given me. The way you’ve fallen for Jack F’n Carter and these books have blown my mind on a daily basis-  I am surprised by the emails, the pictures, the drawings, the sweetness, the kind words, the word of mouth and the sheer passion you have for these characters. Thank you.
