Have you ever fell in love with an Author

I love to read. I can pick up a book and finish it in a day or two. When I started flipping through books I found T.M. Cromer, Lexi Post, Kayce Lassiter, and K.C. Lynn. One of my first books by T.M is Nanny Crisis. She would just laugh at me and say ” Really!” I don’t know why but it just draw me in.

My first author convention I got to meet them and they were so down to earth. I always wonder in the back of my head if I could write a book. My brain just holds so much stuff in there. Sometimes ideas pop in my head unexpectedly.

These authors gave me so much wisdom when I decided to write and the number one thing that stuck with me was ‘ You better have a strong backbone’

That saying is for any author who writes. Not every reader will like your stuff and they will leave a review that will rip at your insides but you got to remember that’s their opinion and everyone has the right to express it. You just pull up those you big girl panties and just keep writing with your head held high.

So I’m sharing my love for their books on here because I feel in love with their writing.

Noxious (Toxic Touch Series Book 1) by [Lexy Timms, Book Cover by Design]
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B087NWY7VX?tag=fbsyemailwwm-20

Stop setting yourself on fire to keep someone else warm.

Brady and Levi have been together since high school, since before he became famous and started thinking only about himself. Which he should, his football career is everything right now. Brady understands and doesn’t mind she’s slowly slipping into the background.

Except, when will it be fair to think about herself, or to want more? Where is the line between selflessness and self-sacrifice? Sometimes, she isn’t sure she knows anymore.

But if she has to think about a life without Levi, it feels wrong. They’ve always been there for each other. It’s always been about the dream, the goal. Even if it ended up being his dream, his goal.

Because if they’re together, isn’t it a team effort? Doesn’t it become their dream, their goal, together? Or is she just fooling herself? Is it normal for people in a relationship to feel this alone?

Say You'll Be Mine: A Second Chance Romance (A NOLA Heart Novel Book 1) by [Maria Luis]
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XRHBBNR?tag=fbsyemailwwm-20

Laws of Engagement for dealing with an Ex:
Rule #1: Don’t give into temptation for a kiss just to see if they taste the same.
Rule #2: No clothing removal. Seriously, don’t take them off.

Twelve years and too many pairs of stilettos later, Shaelyn Lawrence is back where she started: New Orleans. She’s returned only to take care of her grandmother, and after that? She’s out, hopefully long before she sees irresistible Brady Taylor, the boy who stomped all over her heart. But when a family member approaches her for help, there’s only one person she can to turn to…and he’s just as infuriatingly sexy as she remembers. Oh boy.

New Orleans Detective Brady Taylor has his sights on the finish line: getting promoted to sergeant. Nothing, and no one, is getting in his way–except that he didn’t prepare for her return, the girl who left him without a word. Resisting Shaelyn has never been his strong suit, and now all he can think about is stripping her out of her f*ck-me heels and kissing the lipstick off her sassy mouth. And when she asks him for help, he’s forced to decide between his career and the woman he’s never stopped loving.

Rule #3: Don’t even think about falling in love again…

SAY YOU’LL BE MINE is the first full-length novel in the NOLA Heart series, but can be read as a standalone. If you like quirky characters, hot cops, and steamy scenes that will have you fanning your kindle, then you’re in the right place. Things are about to get hot down in the Big Easy…
