I’m excited to be able to be at Marcia’s blog today!! Marcia’s blog is a place known for it’s belief that women can be sexy and smart and strong, and still feel with their hearts. The perfect place for romance!!
I’m the author of a fun romantic book called That Boy. That Boy has been on the Amazon best sellers list since November, and I’m very proud of the fact that it’s also on their best rated list!
You know, being friends with two cute boys does have its benefits. There’s Danny. Danny is a golden boy in every way. He has dreamy blue eyes and blonde hair that always looks perfect, even when it’s windblown or been stuck under a football helmet. He’s the boy every girl crushes on. The boy I get into trouble with, the boy I fight with, the hot quarterback no girl can resist, not even me. Being with Danny is like being on an adventure. He has a bright, contagious smile and abs to die for. He’s pretty much irresistible.
Equally crush worthy is Phillip. Adorable, sweet Phillip, who I have known since birth. Phillip has dark hair, a perfect smile, brown eyes, and the sexiest voice I have ever heard. He’s the boy I talk to every night before I go to sleep. The boy who rescues me, the boy who can read my mind, the boy who is always there for me, the boy who tries to keep me out of trouble, the boy who irritatingly keeps getting hotter, and whose strong arms always seem to find their way around me. And when he gives me that grin, I can never say no.
One boy will give me my very first kiss.
One boy will teach me to make out.
One boy will take me to prom.
And finally, one boy will ask me to marry him.
They will both be my best friends.
But only one of them will be the boy I fall in love with.
Only one of them is That Boy.
Since Marcia’s blog is about strong women, I thought I would share a little with you about the main character in the book, Jadyn. She’s a bit of a tomboy, spunky, funny, and a loyal friend. The book is written from her perspective, so you get to experience all the important moments in her life from age 10 through her engagement to that boy at age 22.
At eighteen, Jadyn is growing up well. She gets along well with her parents, gets good grades, and has close friends. Something tragic happens in her life that causes her to react. Her reaction is to realize that life is short. She is determined to do two things with her life. She wants to make her parents proud, and she wants to live life to the fullest. She wants to stop and smell the roses.
While these are honorable traits, she takes them a bit far, and they are simply masking her pain. If everything is for fun, it means you don’t care. If you don’t care, you won’t get hurt again. Even though she doesn’t realize it, she’s trying so hard to be strong, she doesn’t let herself feel.
But she’s in love with a boy. A boy who has been her best friend for a really long time. She knows she loves him, but she has an internal struggle brewing. Should she let herself love him fully and risk having her heart broken? Or worse, losing him? At the end of That Boy, she makes a decision. One that will affect the rest of her life. Will she make the right decision? Does she believe in true love, the fairytale kind? You’ll have to read the book to find out!!
The sequel to That Boy, That Wedding, was released about a month ago. In this book, you get to see Jadyn grow into the kind of strong, loving woman that would make her parents proud.
I know he’s that boy. The boy I want to marry, my prince, my happily ever after. I feel like I’m living in a dreamy fairytale.
Unlike Jadyn, she does know all the words to Dear Old Nebraska U.
She currently resides in Texas with her family, where she is working on new projects.
She is a voracious reader herself and can easily lose a day immersed in a good book. She is an avid college football fan and active in her sorority’s alumni group.
She was lucky enough to find her own prince in college, and they have two amazing children and a Maltese named Sugar Bear.
