NOTE: This is a second edition with major revisions.
Turns out I’ve got a low tolerance for being ignored.
It was Cam who offered occasional dates.
It was Cam who suggested we be exclusive “bed” buddies.
It was Cam who slowly began to disappear from my life, and I’m tired of feeling like nothing more than a warm body.
I deserve better.
When I find myself spending more time with my friends, it’s Sebastian who’s here for me when I need him most. There’s always been that “something” between us, but with his string of girls and Cameron in the way, I never really entertained the idea.
Enter one ex-girlfriend and another to my list of bullies.
One betrayal changes everything. I’m not settling anymore. I’m not doing what’s best for everyone else this time. No, this time I’m doing what’s best for me.
☂️I’m tired of standing under this umbrella alone. ☂️
We met at the age of eight. That day on the playground was a turning point in my life.
Her life wasn’t easy. Mine was a cake walk.
She was a good girl. I was a troublemaker.
She was everything and without her I was nothing. I knew it the first time I saw her, and I still know it now.
She wanted me to live my dreams, and I wanted the same for her.
Ten years later, we’re still living separate lives—seeing one another when we can,
which wasn’t often with her living in New York City and me in LA.
I know my lifestyle has never been one she can handle—the fans, the media, there is no privacy or peace—but I can’t be without her anymore.
I need her.
She’s the love of my life and when I asked her to come to me last Christmas, she said yes. I’ve been waiting for her, and now she’s here. My heart is finally whole.
But not everything is about me.
She’s giving up her life there to merge it with mine here.
She’s giving up her privacy.
She’s giving up her anonymity.
She’s giving me everything.
I’m going to give her everything of me in return. But will our love be enough? Can the good in our lives overshadow the bad? Or will all the obstacles we’ve so carefully avoided break us completely?
I was born and raised in Wisconsin and still live here today.

“The best part of being an author, to me, is being able to take the reader to that one place they long to go when they need to escape reality. Knowing I can do that, for even one reader, makes what I do worthwhile.” ~ Anne Mercier
So much has happened in Jesse and Lucy’s first year of marriage. They’ve barely had enough time to catch their breath. Now it’s time to go to the premiere of Always Yours, the movie she did with Aiden Jensen. When Lucy gets a bit nostalgic, Jesse becomes worried. Is their life—now—what she wants? Is he enough? Or does she want to go back to that life–the one before him?
Lucy’s exhausted—who wouldn’t be, dealing with quadruplets? When faced with her past, she realizes there’s nothing better than what she has now—her present—and her future with her babies and the man she loves. She just needs a breather–and Xander and the gang put together a weekend getaway for her and Jesse to give her that very thing.
Their weekend away couldn’t have come at a better time. It’s time to remind that husband of hers just how good they are together and how much he means to her.

My life literally changed in the blink of an eye. I was happy, I was whole… and then my father died. Since then I haven’t been the same. I’ve been battling inner demons as well as the ones on the outside–my mother the evilest of them all. It’s time to take control of my life and Kyle Cooper makes me believe that I can.
I’ve been half in love with Myah Wilks for as long as I can remember. She’s short and sassy–or she was until tragedy struck. Changes in her life left an opening for me, the one I’ve been waiting for and I’m jumping–with both feet. This amazing girl has more fight in her pinky than most people do in their whole body… she just needs to be reminded. She also needs to purge those demons and let her secrets go. Maybe, just maybe, she’ll let me in and trust me with her whispered truths.
