Book Genre: Small Town

Gone Country

I need this promotion.

Too bad I have to temporarily move to a small town to prove I deserve it. And, it’s not as easy as I thought it would be.

My car? Ends up in a ditch.

A hot shower? Interrupted by a snake.

Not to mention the quiet. How do people fall asleep without background noise?

The only good thing about Asheville is the mechanic that comes to my rescue and offers to fix my car. He’s playful, kind, and promises he’s not looking for a relationship, which is great since I won’t be here long. He can show me everything this town has to offer, including “other activities”…with no strings attached.


But how can I keep my eye on the prize when he’s looking at me like I’m his?

Welcome to Your Life

Pregnant and alone. That’s not how I expected to end up after high school.

Jake wants me back. But I don’t want that toxic relationship. We aren’t good together and this baby isn’t the reason we should work things out.

Between work and school, I barely have time to figure out what I want to do. That is until I’m paired up with a hot guy in class for a project. He’s slowly working his way into my heart. But, I’m pregnant and trying to adjust to my new life. How can he actually be interested in me?

With Jake home from college, he’s doubling his efforts. Especially now that he sees me with Reaf.

I have decisions to make...and it’s not just about me anymore.

Cocktails & Crushes

Out of the Ashes will be the best bar in the county. At least that's what I promised my uncle before he passed away.

With all the changes we're making, more challenges arise. The crowd seems to get rowdier with every day that passes, and most days I feel like I can't keep my head above water.

That is until Dylan, the kid I used to babysit, walks in. He's definitely not a kid anymore. But he might just be what I need to keep the bar running smoothly. Too bad he isn't staying in town.

Guarding my heart is the least of my problems, but I'm not sure how long I can fight my attraction.

Shoot Down the Stars

One glance and it came rushing back.

I’ve given up on finding “the one”. I have dreams of doing something with myself. Something more than working at the local hardware store. I might as well face it. There’s no chance of leaving this small town or my alcoholic father.

Until I see Amelia, my childhood friend and Tonya’s cousin, at a wedding. To my surprise, she’s moving into Tonya’s old room, and sticking around Asheville for a while.

Friends. That’s all we can be. I’m not looking for love, and neither is she. But, can I live without her when she moves back home?

From This Moment

Weddings are supposed to be the best day of your life. Right?

I was ecstatic the day Reaf proposed. Ready to have my fairytale wedding and happily ever after. Until everything goes wrong.

The church floods, and we have to find somewhere to have the ceremony ASAP. All of this on top of midterms, and it’s taking everything in me not to break.

I’m ready to begin my adventures with Reaf. Right now, it seems impossible.
