(#1, Explosive Series)
After nearly a year and a half of grieving the loss of her husband, twenty-seven year old Alexa Sullivan Tate is headed back to her hometown after a decade of being away. She has no idea her high school crush, Jace McAllister, the guy who stole her heart the same night that he broke it, is more than ready to pick up the pieces. Jace has spent the last ten years in the Army defusing bomb after bomb, trying to forget the girl who ignited all his passions. Little does he know that the spark still exists. Ten years ago they had smoldering chemistry, but the spark between them now might light a fuse that leads to an explosion even Jace can't stop. Not that he wants to. If only Alexa can get past her guilt and trust her heart again. But how do you put it all on the line when you've already lost everything once before? *While this is a series, each book will be standalone with spinoff characters.

Review: You gotta love a book about second chances....Okay fine, maybe you don't but...you should!
I knew this story was going to be powerful. Emotional. Engaging. From the first line, I was hooked. the raw emotion from the story took it's toll on me. What's with those books lately??? Okay fine, I'm NOT complaining, but WOW!
Alexa can never forget the last words her husband said to her that day. The fateful day that her life changed forever. The day she lost him and he would never come back. The words haunt her. The eat at her. They changed her. Now it's a year and a half later and she still struggles. She's so young to be widowed! But with the help of her friends, her life is about to change. It's time to go home. To the place she left a long time ago. Oh yeah, and...the boy she had the biggest crush on and had SERIOUS sparks with is back. And umm...he's no longer a boy, but a man. One who can still ignite her into a fit of desire.
I LOVE the chemistry between Alexa and Jace. I love these two together! Their journey wouldn't stay out of my head. When i wasn't readying, I was thinking of these two. The emotions JUMPED off the pages! The characters were real, engaging and easy to relate to. A few times in the beginning with the reflections of herself and Jace kind of slowed the story and confused me a little bit because there wasn't the smoothest transition between then and now, but otherwise the flow is great and the story line very strong. Cant't wait for more!
I'm a twenty six year old book junkie who is also obsessed with sports. Bengals, Buckeyes, Reds are my teams! I work for the government during the day, hang out with Air National Guard on the weekends, and am married to a guy 15 inches taller than me. We're quite the pair! We currently live right outside of Dayton, OH with our two cats.
I've been reading since I was a kid. My mom was a librarian, so it was a given. Heck, she even made sure we watched Wishbone instead of the Smurfs. In 2011 when I graduated from college, my mom bought me a Nook, and then in the summer of 2012 I found this amazing site called Goodreads. I was introduced to so many amazing indie/self-published authors. After reading almost 400 books that year, my husband gave me the push to finally sit down and write my own. It was a rocky start, but over time the words started flowing and I couldn't get Jace and Lexi out of my head.
If I’m not writing or looking through tons of photos of hot men, all in the name of research, then you can probably find me curled up with my Kindle, ignoring the rest of the world. I love my sports almost as much as I love my books. My other obsessions include red wine, hot men, country music, and all things Grace Potter.
