And yeah, I know that when people say that, they’re usually lying. They almost always want it, and worked hard to get it.
What I do work my ass off on is my music — I mean, my serious music. My genre-bending rock ’n’ roll work that’s sometimes a little folk and always as raw and badass as I can manage. “Hit It, Beyotch” is not that. But it’s what everyone knows me for.
I’m Aria Mack, YouTube star and the Rebecca Black of my generation. I'm only nineteen, but I'm already the object of viral hate that spans the globe. I wish every damn day that I was not.

As a soon-to-be lawyer, logic is my guiding force. And logic doesn’t have think it's possible to found lifelong relationships on a sudden shared chemistry communicated with a glance of the eyes.
Then I tumble -- literally -- into an undergrad on campus and I find myself thinking that this guy's smile makes me happy. Like, really happy.
I’ve got bigger concerns though. I’m late for the first day of my teaching gig. I don’t have time for ogling some hottie — and he’s definitely a hottie.
The sight of this guy gathering up the papers I dropped makes my thigh muscles turn to jelly. His hands are so big, strong with smooth knuckles. I imagine how they’d feel fondling my breasts or supporting my ass as he pounds me against the wall.
From the way he's eyeing me, I don't think I'm the only one that feels the chemistry kindling between us.
I can’t make myself walk away from this stranger. So the only question is — will I let myself believe in the impossible?

I’ve had a rough time. Between being passed over for the promotion I’ve spent years working to earn, getting dumped by my long-term boyfriend, and my dog running away . . . let’s just say that it hasn’t been fun.
Now I’m questioning what my thirty-six years have amounted to. My job’s going nowhere, my partner wasn’t on the same page, and hell, even my dog couldn’t bother to stick around.
I need something new, fresh, maybe a little bit wild. So I decide to take advantage of all the western perks my Montana town has to offer and sign up for riding lessons.
Then I meet Logan Steele, a cowboy that is way more hot than he has any right to be. And I find myself wondering if I really keep going back to the barn for riding lessons, or something more . . .

I know I’m lucky to still be in the horse business. But I’m ready for so much more in both my professional and personal lives.
And then Cassidy Clayton shows up at the barn I’m working out of. I know from the first moment I lay eyes on her — I’ve got to have more of those sweet curves in my life. I just wonder if I’ve got the mettle to risk it all and tell her.

Ana has worked hard — and endured a lot of b.s. — to establish herself as owner of the best damn video game store in town (if she does say so herself).
She’s at the top of her game, nerd pun intended, but she can’t help longing for love. At the same time, she can’t decide if true love really exists, thanks to all the basement-dwelling, toxic, doxxing men she’s had to handle in her line of work.
Then she runs into Wes, her secret high school crush, at a gaming con. The sweet desire she felt for him as a teen has transformed into an overwhelming, magnetizing attraction, and Ana doesn’t know if she should resist it or abandon herself to it.
But Wes has his own secrets, and his own doubts. If Ana breaks all her rules and gives into her hunger for him, will he meet her there or break her heart?
First Time Player is a sweet and sassy second chance instalove nerd romance from the author of The Light Between Us books and will be sure to please fans of quick ’n’ dirty love stories.
The Fourth of July is my absolutely least favorite thing. An entire day dedicated to thundering explosions and crazy-making lights that drive my clients wild (well, wilder than they already are, given that they’re cats and dogs)? Thanks, but no.
The only thing I like less than the Fourth is my ex, and good riddance to him. I gave him seven years of my life, and in the end he gave me an eyeful of his cheating ass in my bed with some brunette. Said he wasn’t ready for long term, that he needed something explosive. I hope the fact that I had a moving van and team at the house within the hour, moving his shit the hell out of there, was explosive enough for him.
So sure, while I’m not exactly thrilled about this year’s fireworks show — the one that puts my town of Milltown, Colorado, on the map — I’m ready for something new. Something fresh. Something . . . well, something explosive. In a good way.
This year, I’m celebrating the Fourth by making a fresh declaration of independence to bring me back to life after seven years of gathering dust on the arm of a guy who didn’t deserve me — or, hell, even want me.
It’s time to focus on me.
When firefighter Jamie Banner walks into my life, I know exactly what I’d like to do with him. And it’s not exactly ladylike . . .
Happy 4th of July!
Welcome to Milltown, Colorado, population 15,000, where the only things hotter than the annual fireworks show are the men in uniform and the women who want to light their fuses.
Join the authors of Flirt Club in The Fireworks Series of stories that celebrate small-town summers, BBQs, and all things that end with a bang! ;)
Where will you be when the fireworks start?
I swore I’d never love again.
I’d never even let anyway get close enough to try.
Not after — well, not after Christmas was ruined forever, six years ago.
I won’t let myself get hurt like that again. Not ever.
But then one slick December night I literally fall into the arms of my neighbor, Dash, and my icy heart can’t seem to help melting.
And when I hear that he’s got his own sad story, I find that I’m falling again — for him.
This Christmas romance is short but sweet — and sexy AF. Heat up your holidays with Holly and Dash in this standalone short story.
Now that I look back over the past few weeks, I can see signs of this coming.
I’d thought it was wedding jitters. Our family had begun trickling into Shotgun, our western Montana town, making the incoming life commitment all the more real. That’d be enough to make any groom-to-be nervous.
But then my fiancé never showed up to our wedding.
My three bridesmaid friends were amazing. They’d spun into action dispersing the guests while I sat, numb. Now we’re driving to the closest dive bar at my request, and I feel lots of things.
Hurt. Confused. Betrayed.
But most of all, I feel like my insides are alight with anger.
I’m ready to blow off some steam.
But love isn’t done with me yet. It has one more trick up its sleeve . . .
Meant to be Yours is a super hot story about finding true love at the most unlikely of times. No cheating, no cliffhangers, and only consensual shenanigans await.

When the hotel drops her reservation, she finds herself at Starwood Rest, an up-and-coming luxury camping resort with actual tents and a herd of a horses -- and a hunk of an owner.
Jess Porter was a quiet beanpole of a teenager, voted least likely to succeed after high school. But he stayed in Paulson and, against all the odds, is now owner of Starwood Rest, the best damn glamping spot in the Flathead Valley -- and soon to be, he believes, in the west. He can handle anything life throws his way -- but when he learns that his high school crush, Rosalie George, is staying at Starwood, he can't shake the feelings for her that come rushing back.
She's got every reason to run from Paulson, and he can't see himself ever leaving. But when Rosalie and Jess reenter each other's orbits, they begin to question what really matters to them, and what's worth giving up for the right reasons -- and the right person.
