A childhood friendship is rekindled with true romance and steamy nights, revealing a love that has always been there.

A sexy, sweet and fun romance

4 Adorable Stars

My Love At Lasts is an adorable pleasurable read that will have you awing and sighing throughout.
Danielle and T.J. are childhood friends. Danielle is the popular girl with the perfect jock boyfriend and best friend.  T.J is the nerdy lanky guy that gets picked on a daily basis, especially from Danielle’s boyfriend. Years later, after college, Danielle moves back home and runs into her old friend T.J who is nothing like the nerdy lanky guy she knew growing up.  T.J. is given a second chance to win back his high school crush and he has a lot of ammo to back up his game.

I love second chances type of reads and I also love adorable reads.  If you are looking for a light hearted book with some cutesy moments then My Love At Last is for you.

Lord, help me get through this lunch without going into heart failure because this man is killing me with his looks and those to die for eyes.

First off, there are no flashbacks, My Love At Last starts out with Danielle and T.J in high school and it kind of paints a picture of how they interacted back then. I would say, Danielle isn’t so much a “mean girl” as she kind of turns a blind eye when T.J. gets picked on and you kind of feel for him.

When Danielle comes back into town years later and meets up with T.J. I really liked the small tension they had. T.J. doesn’t really make her squirm (which I wish he did a little), but lord, he’s kind of alpha male and it’s nice.  Let’s just say, you don’t have to wait too long to get to the steam.

At that moment I knew I was done for. TJ could do whatever he wanted to me and I would be lost in him.

There are a few obstacles to give Danielle and T.J. some tension, but overall the read is smooth and light.  What worked for me is T.J. I liked him.  Call me a big of softy, but I LOVE NERDY guys, heck, I wished he wore emo glasses! 

This man could be so frustrating and so sexy at the same time.

I may have been a pussy in high school, but I’ll be the one getting hers tonight, while you’re sitting at home probably with  your football shit all around you wishing you were with her.

I can see how he would have a huge crush on Danielle, who wouldn’t want to date the pretty popular girl?  And, I feel like Danielle really grew as a character and you can see she felt bad for never really helping T.J. out as a young kid. Towards the end, she did frustrate me a bit when she became a bit “dramatic”, but overall, like I said, My Love At Last is a light, fun, romantic read with a few steamy bits to keep you interested. 

Where do you get your inspiration?
I find my inspiration in many little things. It could be from a song I just heard on the radio, a spur of the moment thought that turns into four great chapters in a book or while reading other books. 

Other than writing, what is your favorite thing to do?
Other than writing I really enjoy to read. I am a complete book nerd. I love to read all genres of books. 

My Love At Last was a very sweet romantic book, do you think you will write anything dark in the future?
Actually yes, I am currently working on two projects at the moment and one of them is a murder mystery that is going to have a dark side to it. 

What made you become a writer?
I always had a love for writing and found it a great way to creatively express myself and decided one day to share my writing with people and published my first actual book My Love At Last.

If you could name a song or band/signer that reflects My Love At Last, what would it be?
That’s a tough choice because I feel that so many songs could reflect this book since it is a sweet romantic book. But right now I think Close your eyes by Michael Buble would be the song that would reflect how TJ really feels about Danielle. 

What can we expect in the future?
You can get my new book out now Keeping You Forever Book 1 of A Harbor Love Series and the second book to this series will be out later this year. Also my murder mystery that I am working on will be out early next year.
