In this New Adult / College, Coming of Age story Tessa Ross tries to fight her attraction to bad boy Lucas Links. He is hot, arrogant, and has a sexual past that most boys his age could only dream of, (If they even knew they could dream of such things). Lucas, the star quarterback seems to have it all, super star athletic abilities, expensive clothes, cars, and women who literally stop just to watch him walk by. On the outside he appears to have it all. Tessa is a young woman who lives her life always doing what is right to make everyone else happy. She tries desperately to hold herself accountable to the demanding expectations of her family and everyone around her. Is Tessa as innocent as she appears? Is Lucas just a spoiled young man who seems to have what every male, and female wants? If you Love an emotional story that is full of spicy hot goodness. If you Love to follow a story from beginning until the bitter sweet end. If you are often left wondering what happened next... get your tissues and lip balm ready you are in for the read of your life. As we all know, you should never judge a book by it's cover.
I am a very new self published writer. I will tell you I have always had a very vivid imagination. Starting at age 3 (as it states in my Baby Book). Sigma was my very first love (imaginary boyfriend). He lived about fifteen miles from my childhood home, (a farm). I took him chicken noodle soup every night on one of our families snowmobiles, (Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring). Apparently he was very ill and "Thank God" I was able to take care of him. Next was my very first self publishing gig. At eight my cousins and I (and yes I was the president) wrote a newsletter and sold it to our family members. Years later I decided to put it back into print to entertain my cousin as she was on an aircraft carrier on 9/11 (Kick ass cousin BTW) and very far away from home during a very scary time for our country, (protecting our butts). Fast forward to 2012. I read 50 shades and thought, I can do that, (meaning writing). I have two complete series The Love Series, and Wrapped. I have two new series Burning Souls and Men of Steel. Ten books in 13 months. CrAzY and wonderful. I love love! ( I would love to reference Pinks new song here, however I am not sure if that would cause copyright issues.)I also tend to enjoy watching people grow and change with self realization and moments of clarity that just sneak up behind you and smack you in the head. I love people and have always been able to see both sides of a story. Each person that comes into our life leaves us with something it is what we choose to do with it that helps us grow. I live in central New York in the middle of nowhere and am surrounded by family and friend most the time. I run a small business out of my home and spend time reading and doing the typical Mommy things. Our house is full of pets and friends and noise ninety percent of the time, and I would have it no other way. I love people,music, laughter, hugs, and books.

My Review: 4 ½ stars
This was a good book from the beginning. Tessa and Lucas are so different, but mutually attracted to each other. Tessa’s life is falling apart when Lucas enters the picture, and she knows she shouldn’t go after him, but she does anyway. Lucas is a heartbreaker, and that’s what gets in their way constantly. All the girls he’s been with before coming out of the woodwork to interfere. Tessa and Lucas do have a strong connection, though, and that’s hard to deny. There are so many different things that come out of nowhere, your head is spinning at times to keep up. I really want Lucas and Tessa to have their happy ending, but it looks like I’m going to have to wait and see what happens in the next book. Not happy with a cliffhanger ending, but sometimes that’s just how it goes – just like life. You don’t know what you’re going to get or what’s going to happen. MJ has done a fantastic job with the story and characters. You get so caught up in what’s going on, and it’s hard to watch (read) the things going on. I’m hoping that things work out mainly for Tessa and Lucas, but for the other characters also.
