From the Inside Flap

Laugh, cry and fall in love with the entire Mathews family in this all inclusive box set. Includes No More Wasted Time, Shayla's Story, The Perfect Someday, and Surviving Broken.



After losing her husband to a sudden heart attack, Tess Mathews escapes to Bora Bora to lay her husband and sorrow to rest. What she doesn't expect is a new beginning.

Tom Clemmins is an A-list actor whose life revolves around work and an onslaught of women. He travels to Bora Bora for a much-needed break. Tom has a few ideas of how he'll enjoy his vacation, but love isn't one of them. Until he sees Tess.

Reserving a private shark-feeding excursion to scatter her husband's ashes into the lagoon, Tess is furious when Mr. Hollywood bribes his way onto the boat, leaving her no other choice but to share the boat ride. Tess is torn between tremendous guilt and zealous lust when their boat ride turns into a week full of romance and desire neither thought imaginable. Utterly smitten with a woman for the first time in his life, Tom casts his commitment phobia aside and whisks Tess off to Malibu where he introduces her as his "girlfriend" on the red carpet.

As the paparazzi besiege, can Tess survive the media blitz that ensues in order to find her second chance at love?



~ People come into your life for a Reason, a Season or a Lifetime ~

A Reason...

Questioning her relationship with a man who worships politics more than her, Shayla Clemmins escapes reality for the seductive sunsets of Greece. There she finds exactly what she didn't know was missing from her life, but fears she'll lose him to her past.

A Season...

John Mathews works hard and plays even harder. When he finds a new passion in the sensual warmth of Greece, he discovers that one lust-filled weekend of romance is just not enough.

A Lifetime...

With Shayla's past catching up to her and an anonymous threat to her future, can she and John make a lifetime together?



Tracy Mathews lives life by the perfect moral code.

After graduating magna cum laude in Marketing, she travels to the fabled churches of Santorini to capture the picturesque sunset, only to find a masquerade wedding about to begin. Tracy is persuaded by her younger sister to crash the ceremony.

While donning a mask in Greece, she encounters a magnetically charming, handsome Italian, who entices her deepest desires. After a brief and mysterious rendezvous with future promises made, she returns home only to realize her dreams of the perfect man have been shattered--until an unexpected job opportunity presents itself in Italy.

Vincent is a fifth generation winemaker in the rolling hills of Tuscany. On the verge of losing his family's estate, will Tracy Mathews, an up and coming marketing entrepreneur, be exactly what he needs to save his family heritage and his broken heart?



 ~ Sometimes you have to go through hell to find your heaven ~

Most women have a wish list when it comes to what kind of man they want to date. JC Mathews used a strict set of guidelines as a safety net to keep herself out of trouble and out of love.

On hiatus from the bright lights and speculative gazes of her career in the fashion industry, JC lets her guard down...only to the wrong man. After escaping Italy and the hands of her abuser, she returns to Malibu to recover. The last thing she expects to find is a large, gorgeous intruder swimming naked in her pool.

Reed Rider left Texas and his broken heart behind in order to settle his aunt's affairs after her death. Seeking refuge from the California heat for a midnight swim in his neighbor's backyard, he never expects to find the nude silhouette of a long-haired beauty standing at the water's edge.

As their passion ignites and the pages of JC's rulebook fade to grey, she unlocks her guarded heart to begin a new chapter in her life. When hidden truths are exposed and secrets unravel, will they survive the threats from their broken pasts?

#1 No More wasted Time

Tess Mathews finally realizes that life is about today and not tomorrow. She has lost her husband to a sudden heart attack and decides to go to Bora Bora to lay her husbands ashes and her sorrow to rest.
Tom is a high profile actor who wants to kick back and tack a well needed vacation. He is in the mood for fun and no strings! It is a crazy twist of fate and now they are both in for a new beginning. Tess is torn by the love she still feels for her deceased husband and the excitement of a new relationship. Tom is overwhelmed by his feelings for Tess but knows that she is struggling. Tom finally puts his commitment issues aside but can Tess take the pressure of Tom's high profile lifestyle.
A beautiful story! ~~ Michele McMullen~

#2 Shayla's Story

I will start by saying that I loved Beverly's first book in this series called No More Wasted Time and to truly enjoy this book to the fullest please read that one first! I can without a doubt say that she certainly has another winner on her hands.
We were introduced to Shayla briefly in the first book and had only scrapped the surface. Shayla thought she knew what she wanted and had her life all mapped out. She has the "perfect man" well Mat is mostly perfect when he has time for her. She has a great job with wonderful perks. This belief is sent into a tailspin when she is invited to attend the wedding of her uncle in Greece and comes face to face with Tess's son John. Tess is the beautiful woman that her uncle is marrying.
I loved the immediate attraction and pull they felt for each other. Beverly's ability to make you feel what her character's felt is truly amazing.

NO MORE WASTED TIME: Do I feel like Sunday? This was my first Beverly Preston read and I really enjoyed it. It was beautifully written. I felt like I was on vacation in Bora Bora and could see and feel what Tom & Tess experienced there. It was a very sweet story of second chance love, letting go, and being able to accept that "life is about today". I look forward to reading more of this series.

SHAYLA'S STORY: Desire for an endless tomorrow...
4.5 nipple grazing stars... Shayla's Story is the 2nd book in the Matthews/Clemmins Family Series. It can be read as a standalone, however; it's a richer experience if you read No More Wasted Time first. Beverly Preston writes in such a descriptive colorful way that you actually feel like part of the experience, the family, the vacation destinations, the drama, and the love. I enjoyed this book even more than the first and can't wait for the next one to be released.

THE PERFECT SOMEDAY: 5 BHS (Broken Heart Syndrome) stars... Beverly Preston has turned me into a page turning mess! I have smiled, snickered, giggled, and literally laughed out loud. I have sighed, sniffled, gasped, held my breath in anticipation, and even blushed, "Oh my God, Vincent." I'm in love with The Matthews Family Series, and by my calculations there is at least one more left, I'll be waiting for JC's story. Beverly Preston, I would love to see a tough woman come along who could put Antonio in his place and turn that womanizer into a one-woman-man!

SURVIVING BROKEN: Beverly Preston just keeps getting better and better. I feel like a member of the Mathews family, I love all of them and want to go to join them in Colorado for Christmas. I've always enjoyed JC's personality and it was a thrill to get to know her more in this story.

I bought these books individually and I can't say how lucky everyone is to be able to buy them all together.
I read a LOT, seriously! These books really touched me and I loved that they were about a family. The first book starts with the mother's story. I loved that it was about a woman in her 40's. I was so glad to read a series I could relate to. I can't rave about these books enough and I don't believe in reviewing a book to the extent of spoiling the series! I'll just say, read these and fall in love with the Mathews Family! I did!

I would have given this saga 5 stars had it been better edited. Aside from that, and unfortunately that is my hangup, the story flowed beautifully and was well written. I would recommend these books to others.

Just the thought of The Mathews Family Series makes me smile. I fell in love with Tom and Tess in No More Wasted Time and was hooked from there. Beverly writes real characters with real issues, which I find refreshing in a world of make believe that can be a little to out there. I love the way she writes real situations with a twist of whimsical in the settings such as Bora Bora and Greece. The love this family has for each other is terrific. Every time I read one of the books I don't want it to end!

Tess is now a widow of 1 year and time to put her husbands ashes into the ocean off Bora Bora, Tahiti. But Movie start Tom has other ideas and interfers with her plans. With lots of sex, romance and surprises, it is nice to know that there is love after death.
John falls immediately for Shayla, who at first sight can't stand him, because he gave her uncle Tommy black eyes. Great sex takes place,
Tracy neets a mysterious man while wedding crashing. But falls in love, 2 years later, she has to go to Italy for a job. But since they wore masks at the wedding they do not know each other when they meet. Great sex happens.
JC loves weddings. Afterall, Tracy met her husband at a wedding they crashed. So when JC sets her eyes on their best man, Luca, she was sure it was the real thing. Afterall, he's Italian! But he changed after a few months. The mental and physical abuse she suffered is horrific. Tom comes to visit and rescue's her from the ordeal. Thinking she will never recover, she moves back to Malibu and encounters a naked swimmer in her pool.
Such violence mental and physical, one could almost relate. But the love and patience on everyone part pulls her through. Great sex and heart breaking tears.
