Genres: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance



Purchase: Amazon | iBooks


Don’t date your bodyguard. It was the one rule he had to break. 

Maximoff Hale is a force of nature. A ship unwilling to be steered. Headstrong, resilient, and wholly responsible — the twenty-two-year-old alpha billionaire can handle his unconventional life. By noon, lunch can turn into a mob of screaming fans. By two, his face is all over the internet. 

Born into one of the most famous families in the country, his celebrity status began at birth. 

He is certified American royalty. 

When he’s assigned a new 24/7 bodyguard, he comes face-to-face with the worst case scenario: being attached to the tattooed, MMA-trained, Yale graduate who’s known for “going rogue” in the security team — and who fills 1/3 of Maximoff’s sexual fantasies. 

Twenty-seven-year-old Farrow Keene has one job: protect Maximoff Hale. Flirting, dating, and hot sex falls far, far out of the boundary of his bodyguard duties and into “termination” territory. But when feelings surface, protecting the sexy-as-sin, stubborn celebrity becomes increasingly complicated. 

Together, boundaries blur, and being exposed could mean catastrophic consequences for both.

Excerpt:
Maximoff Hale POV

“Number twelve.” I nod to the list.
He eyes me for a long moment before focusing on the paper. “It says that you’re not used to letting other people behind the wheel.” It actually says I always drive.
I glance at him once, then back to the road. “I didn’t realize that you can’t read.” I switch lanes.
I can almost feel his smile stretch. “Always a precious smartass.” I hear him flip a page. “You have a typo on number thirty-two.”
He called me precious. What the fuck does that even mean? Precious. I have to let it go, but the word scrolls across my gaze like a tickertape banner. “What typo?”
“You forgot a comma.”
I let out an irritated groan. “This isn’t a term paper. Don’t critique my grammar.”
Farrow kicks up one of his shoes on my seat. Balancing his forearm on his knee. Then he bites the staple off and spits it out. I tense and try to watch him and the road simultaneously.
He has a very particular way he moves his hands. They shift with meticulousness and care. A sort of accuracy that belongs to surgeons and someone equipped to disassemble and reassemble a gun blindfolded.
I’ve imagined those hands on me too many times to count. Don’t fucking restart now. I’m trying not to, but having him this close, the NC-17 fantasies vie to breach the surface. Heat blankets my skin and tries to grip my cock.
Thumbing through the papers, Farrow tells me, “You’re about to miss our exit.”
“Shit.”

Two men with a shared history and a mutual attraction must be honest with themselves and each other so both their dreams come true.

Quiet, unassuming Tanner Sellers spends his time running a diner in Hope, Arizona. Not particularly social, twenty-two-year-old Tanner keeps to himself and enjoys his simple life, but he longs for someone to call his own. In his most secret fantasy, that someone is sexy Steve Faus. But Steve is his friend’s father and mentor’s widower and therefore off-limits.

Despite some challenges, thirty-nine-year-old Steve Faus has had a good life. He’s extremely successful at work, has a great relationship with his college-age son, and lives in a wonderful town. Eighteen months after losing his partner, the one thing Steve lacks is someone to share his life. If Steve is honest with himself, that someone is the young man he has known and cared about for years. Steve and Tanner want one another, all they need is a little push in the right direction to make both their dreams come true.

Coming July 17th, Smitty’s Sheriff!


SmittysSherrif_eBookFinal

Todd is too flakey. Richard is too stubborn. Together, they're perfect. A May-December couple get a second chance at love.

Retired soldier Richard Davis wants a stable life in a quiet town with a forever man. Becoming the sheriff of Hope, Arizona, accomplishes two of his three goals, but instead of finding a serious partner, he falls for too-young-to-be-committed and too-flakey-to-be-serious Todd Smitty. Richard won’t find the right man if he’s obsessed with the wrong one, so he walks away from Todd.

It’s lust at first sight when Todd meets his sister’s army friend. He sets his sights on the worldly, strong, stable older man, and the more time he spends with Richard, the harder he falls. But after three years together, Richard cuts off all contact with no explanation.

When a mutual obligation requires Todd to move into Richard’s house, he’s thrilled at the opportunity to earn a second chance. Ignoring Todd from across town was hard enough. Can Richard resist temptation under his own roof?

UPDATE ON LIFE AND WHAT NOT

A couple weeks back I wrote a blog explaining what life has been like for me and why I had to take a step back from blogging before. If you missed it you can read it here. It'll give you all the back history to what I'm about to follow-up with now.

But long story short, three days ago I had a total Thyroidectomy. A little over two months ago I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer. Surgery was required and my thyroid was completely removed and samples of surrounding tissues were taken to be tested to make sure the cancer didn't spread to any other surrounding areas. We're still currently waiting for those pathology reports but fingers crossed all is clear. The doctor was very optimistic that there was nothing left that would cause any concerns. So I'm hopeful.



I'm home recovering trying to rest because let me tell you, surgery on your neck/throat area is not very comfortable. It hurts to swallow, talk, cough, sneeze, etc. but I'm feeling better every day. I have my moments. I could be fine and talking and the next it's so sore and uncomfortable. It's frustrating but I'm determined to get past this hurdle just as I have with every other obstacle that's been thrown my way over the last couple years. 




I will not let this defeat me. No matter what comes next. I have a great family support system. I can't thank my mom, sister and sister in law enough who has been helping me throughout my recovery dotting on me and helping with the kiddos. 

Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! Lol. Did I mention it's also my birthday today!! I'm partyin it hard lying it up on this couch 😂😂😂 I'm actually having a good day and feeling pretty good. The swelling in my neck has gone down significantly and I have more movement. So I'll take it. I'm staying positive and hopeful.



Thank you to those who have reached out to me spending love, well wishes and good vibes. It's greatly appreciated and truly means the world to me. 

All love,
Jenn

From USA Today Bestselling Author MJ Fields

From bedroom performances to center stage, Memphis Black’s dreams have come true. 

Together with his band mates—Finn, River, and Billy B—he takes some time for fun in the sun in Miami while gathering inspiration to finish their first full-length album. Some down time before hitting the road to tour the country, spreading their kind of rock like an STD. 

Tallia Priest, a preacher’s daughter grew up next door to Madison Black, her polar opposite and very best friend. Tallia has harbored a crush on Madison’s older brother Memphis for a lifetime. 

A boy like him would never notice a girl like her, yet he did … once. 

After a tough freshman year of college, Madison invites Tallia to join her in Miami for a much needed break. Madison fails to mention they will be staying with ‘Steel Total Destruction.’ 

When Tallia arrives, there is no way for a stunned Memphis to miss the transformation of the once awkward, innocent girl next door. 

Forbidden desires must be hidden, lines cannot be blurred, and no one can ever know. 

Will the heat in Miami tempt them even further? Will buried secrets destroy lives? Can a broken heart ever be mended? 

It’s all fun and games until someone gets rocked.

Fractured Love - About Book

EJFracturedLoveBookCover6x9_MEDIUM 

 I was sixteen when he came to our house. Landon Jones, a boy with nothing, from nowhere. He had cinnamon hair and blue eyes—light blue, just like mine. When we went out as a family with my foster brother, people asked if Landon was my twin. He wasn’t. That year, we found out how much he wasn’t. When my parents caught us, they threw Landon out like trash. 

Now I’m twenty-nine, a soon-to-be surgeon, like my mom and dad. I know residency is going to kick my ass, but I had no idea that it would rip my heart out, too. Not until I see him—Dr. Jones. 

A standalone that is part of the Off-Limits Romance collection.
