Mid Week Tease – The First Side Project

Click to see all the Mid Week Teases here at SJsWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the amazing Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

Next week, I’ll be celebrating my very first book birthday. Taking Chances turns 1 on August 23rd! So, I’m sharing from this first book in my Love Projects series.

In this tease, you’ll find Jake working hard to keep his lust for Lydia under control. While on his way to take a cold shower in his boss’s office, he finds Simon, the hero from the second book in the series, Taking Courage.


Her scent filled his mind. He could practically taste her already. She was off limits, something that needed to be left alone. Maybe he should take a quick, cold shower in Keller’s office. Keller would understand. Damn Keller and his suggestions. The man kept denying his match-maker moniker, but Jake wanted to blame him all the same. He needed to stand strong, Jake couldn’t let go of his rules.

He stormed into Keller’s office, with a chip on his shoulder. Running up the stairs had only fueled his fury.

“Hey there, Jake, how’s it going with the little betty?” Keller said.

“Just great.”

“Your new side project is Jake?” Simon sat casually in one of the guest chairs.

“I don’t have side projects,” Keller said unconvincingly.

“Whatever, I should report you for this,” Jake said, pacing back and forth.

“What did I do?” Keller threw his hands in the air, but the smirk on his face gave him away.

“Shit, I’m sorry, Jake.” Simon turned his attention back to Keller. “Who did you select for our boy here?”

“You stay out of this. I thought we stood together on standing alone.”

“Sorry, I got caught in the action. Now, don’t leave me hangin’. Who is it?”

“Gees, it’s Lydia, okay? And you know what?” Jake turned his attention to Keller and pointed to Simon. “Do me a favor. Pick on him next.”


And there you have it. That was my clue that Simon would be the hero for book two. Come back next week and I’ll share another teaser from my birthday baby. You can also pick up this hot love story from your favorite retailer and find out everything whenever you want.

Taking Chances 200x300

Lydia’s father walked away from her when she was eight. She’s struggled to not let him affect her, but fears she wasn’t loveable enough to make him stay. Jake wants to love one woman, but after scaring the last woman he met outside of the club, he doubts he deserves the right. She protects her heart by sticking with her fantasies and he lives by a set of rules that excludes women who choose a vanilla lifestyle.

The two will be kept in a conference room working together until their special project is complete. If Lydia and Jake hold tight to their bland lives, they’ll always yearn for love that is out of reach. Together they find common ground, passion, and a reason to take chances. Once they discover the grand possibilities of the love they desire, they find themselves in the very place they tried never to be again, facing unguaranteed loved.
