My Mind’s Eye (Book 1)

Ryker
She is the epitome of the girl next door, but with a feistiness that makes my dick throb.
I’m drawn to her like no other. She stirs things in me I have no desire to feel, makes me long for things I shouldn’t.
This is my game. I choose the players, and I never play for keeps.
I don’t believe in fate. I make my own destiny. I work hard and play harder. Luck is for pussies, karma for idiots. Me, I make shit happen.
Meeting her fucked up my plan. Threw me off my game.
I’m now face to face with my karma. Her name is Kat Rollins.

Kat
Ryker Eddison is the epitome of a player. You know the type: Mr. Get In and Get Out.
He’s all about the chase, wanting just one night. Everyone knows this—I know this. Still, I find myself craving him, my greedy body betraying what my heart and mind already know: he will only bring me pain.
He’s the guy who girls like me should avoid. I’m smart; I know better. But when I’m with him, I feel things I’ve never felt before. Things I never knew I wanted.
I can’t deny it … I like the chase. The high is explosive, but I’m afraid if I give in, I may end up losing more than I can handle: my heart.

On the Rocks (Book 2)

Braunwyn
Four years ago, losing the love of my life almost destroyed me.
Years of being labeled and looked upon with disdain by everyone in my hometown almost wrecked me.
Four years ago, I became a mother and together we were enough… until I met him.
He wanted to rebuild my broken —I just didn’t know how to let him.
This is my story, of how one man’s love changed everything I thought I knew about life, love and myself.
Can Levi Eddison prove to be my restoration?

Levi
Everything in my world changed the day Braunwyn Daniels walked into my pub.
She was a woman of many contradictions. I recognized the happiness and sorrow each fighting its way to the surface from deep within.
I was drawn to her immediately.
Behind her long legs, chestnut brown hair and beautiful eyes lay a damaged soul.
I needed to change that —I just didn’t know how.
This is my story of how I met a broken girl and vowed to make her whole.
In the end, it turns out I knew nothing about true happiness until Braunwyn Daniels let me love her.

 

***SPECIAL NOTE ***
Mental Illness is a growing concern in our world today. On the Rocks is about surviving the aftermath of suicide, and believing in love again. Levi and Braunwyn’s love story is inspired by events that impacted the lives of people I care about deeply. I hope you enjoy their journey.

One Last Shot (Book 3)

My name is Claire Knox.
People say I’m the female version of a player: a boyslayer, if you’re fluent in urban dictionary speak.
I hate long term relationships. I’ll never commit to sticking around long enough to get attached to the notion of love, marriage, or the proverbial two point five kids.
No sirree Not this girl.
There’s no way I’ll let myself get hurt by losing someone I love ever again.
Been there, felt that.
Consider me damaged goods if you will, but I’m happy.
Or so I thought, until my path crossed his again…

Favorite Quotes:

 

My Minds Eye – Book 1

You’re my back-up, the cheese to my macaroni, the fork to my knife, my bestie… most of all you are my sister from another mister!

I honestly think you should be all like, ‘Hey Ryker, my body has 206 bones in it, but I could use one more,’ then blow a kiss at him.

Here’s to you, here’s to me. Friends forever we shall be… And if ever we should disagree, then f* you. Here’s to me!

Jesus, baby, you’re my mind’s eye. God, lately all I see is you. I dream of you when I sleep. I wake to thoughts of you. Then I see you and, fuck, if you’re not all I need to see.

 

On The Rocks – Book 2

 

Trust me, Levi is the stuff that that female population most definitely memorizes and stores up in their minds and plays, on repeat, in their version of the ‘spank bank’ (what London and I refer to as the ‘Jill Till’) after taking in the sight of him. Hell, I myself will be playing him on repeat with Mr. Buz.

Oh man, the things we’ve seen over the years, I swear the city bus can be just as bad as Wal-Mart after midnight.

On the inside, I’m melting into a huge puddle of girlie-goo, into a pool of Oh My God, Did That Just Happen?

I’m more than ready for this. I want to love again, Levi. I want to stop thinking about living and actually live again.

I want you to be my yestermorrow, always, Levi. The place where my yesterdays and tomorrows will forever cross. I want all my days entwined with yours. I need you to be my past, my present, and my future.

 

One Last Shot – Book 3

 

I’d built a moat around my castle, hired a troll to guard the drawbridge, donned my armour and went to battle – me against love.

 

I swear my vagina goes on lockdown at his offer. I can hear the gates clanging shut and the whoop whoop of the alarm.

 

I get that we let them play with us from time to time. But still that’s pretty much the only thing women have in common with dolls. I mean, we’re living, breathing people, with thoughts and feelings, I ain’t no plastic fantastic, I am the real deal complete with fun bags and a dick garage. So do not call me a doll.

 

… the last thing we need is for you to be holding inspections from now on, adding another stupid hang up for you to use against mankind. I don’t suppose that would go over too well in the bedroom with most dudes all ready for action and you pulling out your magnifying glass.  Needing to inspect it before you permit it, hit it and quit it.

 

I love you, and I will spend all my days loving you like I’m going to lose you…

 

… you’re my air, Claire. I need you to breathe.  So you can’t ever leave me. I can’t breathe right when you’re not around.

 

 

My Review:

Ms. Jones’s writing is richly descriptive, making it easy to visualize the characters, environments, and follow their movements and thoughts. I enjoyed the sweet and supportive friendships that the fun and likable female characters shared, as well as their humorous banter and genuineness with each other. Each book could stand alone yet were interconnected by the characters and continuing storyline. Each book featured the romance of a different couple, each packed with erotic steam, alpha men who were sweet to their women, and loads of amusing banter, humor, and profanity. My favorite of the three would be Book 2 – On the Rocks, which was a sweet and sexy romance where the characters were not mired in constant angst and conflict. The plot line was interesting and fresh, and the characters were likable, compassionate, and tender with each other while the writing was fun, crisp, and clever. And any heroine who enjoys Moscato has an instant in with me. Written from a dual POV, Ms. Jones’s storylines are generally emotive and angsty, yet also wickedly amusing, full of expletives, and heaving with sizzling sensuality that frequently found me gasping and with a mouth as dry as the desert. I cannot wait to see what she does with the next couple.

    Just based on that first blurb I can already tell I can’t read this book! I can’t stand people who are so vulgar when they speak. :\
