Loved by the Linebacker – Recovering from a torn ACL, Blake Purser isn’t used to taking it easy. He also isn’t used to not having his best friend, Camila Lemos, spend more time with her boyfriend and his brother Evan than him. His long-time on-again, off-again girlfriend, Molly Feiser, is doing her best to entertain him during the off season but Blake isn’t prepared for her latest news.

If you were stranded on a desert island what ten books would you want with you.

It’s an all time fave of mine that I try to read every summer!
2. Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White
The book that introduced me to the ugly cry.
3. Sleep Toward Heaven by Amanda Eyre Ward
Twists and turns and secret connections, definitely inspired my writing!

Burning car, anyone?

The flipside of school shootings
6. Unhurt by K.S. Thomas

It’s my daughter’s favorite and I love to hear her read it to me with her special additions.
8. Whole Latte Love by Rachelle Ayala
She’s who inspired me to start writing!
9. Second Shield by Stacy Eaton
*Patiently* waiting for the sequel so if someone could drop that on my island for me, I’d greatly appreciate that.
