Jude_FrontCoverBlurb: Jude

I faked my way long enough by keeping my mouth shut, painting a fake smile on my face and focusing hard on my job. I quit going out to find that random piece of ass. Not a one of them would stand up to her anyway.She hates me, loathes me even. Little does Vivian Shepard know I’ve got more tricks up my sleeve than she will ever begin to imagine to get her to change her mind, to get my chance.

I’m not giving up.

I want her, and by God, I’ll fight as dirty as I can get to have her.

No matter what!


Of course, I knew it was a one- night stand. It’s was the perfect night before all hell broke loose to be quite honest. Drinking, talking and flirting.

One I relished in as I tried to gravitate my mind back to solid ground after soaring so high I could feel the rush of flying. My stomach dipped, my heart fluttered, and my toes curled inward and then I splattered to the hard surface of the ground. Jude Westbrooke opened his big fat mouth.

He ruined it, ruined me, ruined it all.

Review: This was only “Meh” for me. I’ve read books by Kathy Coompans and they were pretty good. I just couldn’t get behind this one. It was wordy as hell! I found myself skimming a lot just to get to some dialogue. Which sucks because I  usually love stories that are written in alternating POVs (we go from Jude’s voice to Vivian’s) but this one was simply frustrating. Jude was an ass most of the time. I can get behind and alpha male but this guy was straight up rude about some things and it just wasn’t cool. Then there was Viv (insert eye roll here) she wasn’t as bad to read as Jude was but I didn’t feel the connection that was supposed to be between the two of them. Did they really fall in love after one night? And if they did, how could he still be this hung up on her all this time later? Then here comes the plot twist…one I didn’t see coming and one that definitely didn’t make any damn sense once I got it all figured out. I was like WTF are you kidding me!! I’m all for fiction but this made no sense at all. However, I do plan to read book 3 which is Tyson’s story. This book sets up his story and it seems super interesting. I found myself wondering more about his story than the one I was reading. So for that, I give this book 3 stars. On the plus side, the cover model is sexy AF!

Idle Bloom Sale!!

Meet Oliver & Vivian in this sexy, quirky & emotional stand-alone. You will laugh, you will cry and most of all, you will not be disappointed!

idle bloom cover new


Blurb: “What lies beneath my veiled perfection is the ugly truth—my truth, my reality, my destiny.”

Vivian Graham has an acceptance letter into Harvard, a badass tattoo, loyal friends, ties to marijuana, a penchant for Dunkin’ Donuts, and her pesky V-card.

Everyday she takes the Red Line to her job at The Green Pot in Boston while her friends enter the coveted, black iron gates to higher learning. The ramifications from a tragic accident have put her life on hold while time marches on for everyone around her.

After graduating from Harvard Law, Boston native, Oliver Konrad, moves to Portland to start his career and his life. Three years later, after a horrific discovery, he returns home to trade in his three-piece suit for leather work boots and his suburban home for a condo in Cambridge.

All he brought back to the East Coast was an aversion to pillows and secrets he keeps hidden behind a mysterious locked door. Oliver’s days are predictable and his nights are lonely until he meets Vivian on the subway. Her long raven hair, green eyes, and mile-long legs are achingly sexy, but the way she “innocently” fingers and licks her Boston Kreme doughnut can only be described in two words—complete torture.

When their paths cross at every turn, laughter is abundant, friendship is easy, and love is unintentional. However, their future seems improbable.

About the Author: Jewel is a free-spirited romance junkie with a quirky sense of humor.

With 10 years of flossing lectures under her belt, she took early retirement from her dental hygiene career to stay home with her three awesome boys and manage the family business.

After her best friend of nearly 30 years suggested a few books from the Contemporary Romance genre, Jewel was hooked. Devouring two and three books a week but still craving more, she decided to practice sustainable reading, AKA writing.

When she’s not donning her cape and saving the planet one tree at a time, she enjoys yoga with friends, good food with family, rock climbing with her kids, watching How I Met Your Mother reruns, and of course…heart-wrenching, tear-jerking, panty-scorching novels.
