Philadelphia Series Box Set
In My Arms- Book 1
He's deliciously handsome and completely arrogant. Exactly the last thing Ava needs on
her first night out following her bad breakup.
New to the Philadelphia area, Trevor is instantly taken with Ava's beauty and witty attitude. After
sharing an unexpected but amazing kiss, Trevor manages to stick his foot in his mouth and watches as
Ava walks out of his life before he has a chance to explain.
When the two unexpectedly cross paths again, they struggle with the undeniable chemistry between
them. Ava fights to keep it platonic, afraid to get hurt again, as Trevor sets out to change her mind.
With a little bit of humor, a lot of drama, sexual frustration, dancing and plenty of alcohol, Ava
realizes that Trevor just might actually be perfect for her.
A Part of Me- Book 2
You don't always need a chance at a new beginning. Sometimes you just need a chance at
a different ending.
Tom and Talia aren't strangers. They've been walking a tight rope of attraction since the day they met,
but after an accident rocks Tom's world to the core and changes it forever, he spirals into a free fall of
emotions. No longer the laid-back, happy guy, he now worries that he will never be enough for Talia.
After all, who could possibly love such a broken man?
Talia is a tenacious ER nurse by day and a fun-loving loyal friend and party girl by night. Her
developing feelings for Tom are put to the test after his accident as she fights to break through his
walls and show him how much she cares, even as he continues to build them back up, determined to
keep her out.
As Talia tries to take care of Tom, stronger feelings emerge for both, and neither of them will come
out untouched. Everything they thought they knew about themselves and each other will be put to
the test as they finally realize it isn't important how many times you fall down, but only how many
times you get back up.
Out of My Element- Book 3
"We are playing an entirely different game, Nick. While other girls might wait patiently
until you breakup with your many girlfriends, I can't. You see, I have been waiting all my life for
something real. And if this isn't real, no way am I spending another hour on waiting."
Nick has never allowed himself to get attached to a woman. While his friends were settling down, he
was having the time of his life, a womanizer with a heart of gold. Right up until Chelsea came into his
life. He was drawn to Chelsea from the first time he saw her ... well, actually it might have been the
second time, but it didn't take Nick long to realize he might be over his head and completely out of his
Chelsea wrote Nick off after their first encounter, but soon she realizes she has found a good friend in
him. Falling for Nick was never Chelsea's intention, but sometimes even the best intentions prove to
be out of your control.
The closer Chelsea and Nick get, the more they push seem to make a mess of things. Can Nick figure
out how to have a healthy relationship before he loses Chelsea forever?
I totally fell in love with this series. These characters are so lovable and believable. It has so much passion and laughter that it make everyone keep reading the pages. This is simply a love story, no shock factor, no crazy cliffhangers...a love story pure and simple. I enjoyed Trevor and Ava's story and thought it was well told and very romantic and sweet. The side characters, Nick, Talia, and Tom were comic relief that I truly enjoyed and would love to read more about.
I loved that there was more then one point of view. I probably would've been mad at Tom's character if I didn't get his point of view. I can understand why he was hot and cold. Many people in his position would probably feel the same. Tom was an active guy who loved to move then the accident taken it away from him so I can get why he got to a depressed level and why he wouldn't feel like a whole man after that accident. I loved Taila she was sarcastic, witty, loyal, and caring. She took time off of work to work for a friend in need. I loved both characters, in the book they felt realistic with the struggles and angst they went through.
This was my favorite of the three books because of the main character being Nick. From book 1 he was one of my favorite characters because of his snarky comments. I was so glad he ended up with his own story! I really enjoyed Chelsea and Nick's story. It had a little less steaminess than the other two but it was appropriate considering their stories.
About the Author
It wasn’t until well into adult hood that I discovered, late at night while the house was quiet, that I had just as many stories inside me just waiting to be let out. Writing has been a way for me to step away from reality and live a bit through my fun and sometimes damaged characters. You will almost always find a Happy Ever After at the end of my stories. I can’t help it, it’s an addiction.
I’m a Southwestern girl living a Mid-Atlantic life with my husband of seventeen years and two incredible daughters who inspire me daily. I am proud to be an advocate for my child with autism, and feel incredibly blessed to be able to see the world through her eyes. She teaches me more than I could ever teach her.
I enjoy reading, writing and spending time with my family, but cherish those quiet nights after everyone is asleep when I can curl up on the couch with my fifteen year old dog (Shh, don’t tell…He’s not supposed to be on the couch.)
Keep an eye out for more from me!
