17914340Synopsis:

Cassandra Clarke, fresh out of college and living on her own, isolates herself from the humiliation that rocked her world a year earlier.
Everything in her life is simple and easy until Logan West, the single father full of mystery and sex appeal, moves into the empty estate next door. A guy who easily attracts the attention of available women in town with one carefree smile.

Cassandra is not looking for another heartbreak and stands her ground, but finds it impossible to stay away from the charming stranger when his four-year-old son, Oliver, takes an interest in her childhood tree house.

It is through Oliver where Cassandra’s eyes begin to open to a side of Logan very few people know. The rough edges and arrogant front shed away, leaving the compassionate, yet broken side of him exposed, and finally opening the possibilities to a genuine friendship.
A friendship that is constantly shaken by the undeniable connection building between them.

With temptation arising every time they are near, Cassandra fights to remind herself exactly why Logan isn’t capable of loving her the way she deserves, or is he?

Author Bio:

7091608I am happily married to my husband of five years, have three wonderful children and a beautiful feline companion that keeps me company during late night writing binges.

My love of reading has been life long but it was in early 2012 when I was inspired to finally put pen to paper and write my first story. Since then I haven't been able to stop, fueled purely by my passion to write a story and create characters that readers will enjoy.

New Adult romances are my go to books to read as well as to write. They are young, fresh and full of hope. What's not to love!

Excerpt:

Adrenaline shot through me, pushing me to run full speed at the tree and up the rickety ladder.

“Get em’, get em’, get em’!” The small boy inside shrieked, crouched in the corner.

I took a deep breath, relieved nobody was hurt and followed his gaze to the corner, across the tiny room.

“I tried scaring him away with that,” he explained pointing at a broom.

The boy began to stand, he was no taller than four feet and his mop of curls made it impossible not to smile. I picked up the broom.

Stiff with anxiety as to what he was trying to scare away, I leaned down to find a small brown mouse, trembling in the corner.

Poor thing.

I’d never been a fan of the little creatures, but his giant ears and terrified shivering tore at my heartstrings.

“It’s okay. He won’t hurt you,” I said, turning back smiling. “We should get him back home though. What do you say? Will you help?”

I watched as his concerned expression melted into a sliver of a smile tugging at his lips.

“Will he bite me?”

“That depends,” I smiled standing back up. “Will you bite him?”

He giggled shaking his head. “No!”

“Well then, I think we’re pretty safe.” I laughed.

Hello and welcome to Booky Ramblings of a Neurotic Mom. What inspired you to write your first book? My son was in preschool this year and the idea of this hot young, single father grew into a story that literally wrote itself. I was just the hands doing the typing.

Do you have a specific writing style? I love New Adult and writing with a lot of dialogue.

How did you come up with the title? With the help of great friend, S.E. Hall, we did some brainstorming with some words that I felt described the books and out came Inevitable. It just felt right the first time I said it out loud.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? Dig deeper past first impressions. Everyone has layers and it’s usually worth the time to get to know someone and discover who they really are inside.

How much of the book is based on your life experiences? I wish I could say I have a hot neighbor but unfortunately Inevitable is a work of fiction but Oliver was loosely based on my five year old son.

Are your novels based on someone you know, or events in your own life? Nope. Just fun escapes from reality. Who doesn’t enjoy that little getaway for the mind?

Which of your novels have influenced your life the most? Inevitable is my first novel so it has obviously been a huge part of my life experiences right now in this new world as an author and I couldn’t be happier.

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor? Oh goodness, that is a tough one. Honestly it was Jamie McGuire that really brought out my love for the New Adult genre and the more dialogue heavy writing style which I love.

What book are you reading now? I am about to start Tangled by Emma Chase. I’ve heard a lot of good things about it.

What are your current projects? The follow-up book for Inevitable which will be released October 1st.

Do you see your writing as a career? I do. Whether successful or not I’ll never stop writing books.

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book? I’m my own worst critic but Inevitable is my first book so I know I will only grow as a writer and as far as the storyline goes, nope, I wouldn’t change a thing.

Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? I have always loved books and spending time in book stores and libraries even as a child but it wasn’t until a year ago that I started writing short stories after finding inspiration from a show on television. Once I wrote my first chapter I was hooked. I truly felt like something flickered to life in my soul screaming this is what you should have been doing all along. I have never been more passionate about anything in my life, like the way I am about writing.

Can you share a little of your current work with us? I am writing book 2 for Inevitable which is the conclusion of Logan and Cassandra’s story.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing? Finding a balance between writing a sexy steamy romance and erotica. I love reading both but Inevitable is a love story and book 2 takes that story to a new level and I sometimes struggle to maintain a balance for both readers that want to see some hot dirty times and readers that want sensual not so graphic fun.

Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)? No, but maybe someday and I wouldn’t mind it.

Who designs your cover(s)? Inevitable was designed with the help of Melody Simmons, who stepped in after I attempted my hand at doing it myself and pulled it together for me.

What was the hardest part of writing your book? Finding the time to write while raising three young kids (my daughter is only 22 months), and having time to spend with my husband. I am lucky to have a supportive family to help me out while I finish book 2 this summer.

Do you have any advice for other writers? Write for yourself first but always keep yourself open for change. And the one thing that was so monumental in my writing was finding a great critique partner. That is a must for any writer. Preferably find someone who is not a family member or even a friend. Mine started as a stranger and it was the best thing for us and honestly I don’t know what I would do without her.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers? I love you all and am so damn grateful there are not enough words to explain it. Without my readers all I have is a book. They bring it to life and I will forever cherish everyone that has read it and especially the readers that have stopped by my page to say hi or leave a review about how they enjoyed it.

Thank you for your participation.
