I don’t know how spies do it. I don’t even know how other people can do it. Keeping secrets isn’t my best trait. In fact, I damn near suck at it.

Case in point, when I saw the cover and the ARCs for this particular announcement, I HAD to share it with others. A magical circle of awesome people who were willing to carry the burden with me. Which is why I am still alive to write this blog post for all of you.

You may have already surmised that this is a book announcement.

When I set out to write No Love Allowed (formerly Warning! You Might Fall In Love With Me) I knew right away it wouldn’t be just one book. If you are a reader of my earlier work, you know that secondary characters are just as loud and proud as my main ones. Sometimes the secondary characters even steal the show.

Well, it is my great pleasure (and an awesome weight off my shoulders) to finally announce that there is a second book after No Love Allowed. Everyone, welcome with open arms and squeals of joy: No Holding Back.

Isn’t the cover gorgeous?

When I was first told about it, I was giddy. Then when it was finally sent to me? I literally rubbed my cheek against the laptop screen. Feel free to do so as well.

And as you may have noticed, that’s Preston and Nathan on the cover.

My very first M/M romance! I’m totally freaking out.

A little backstory while you get your heavy breathing under control.

When I set out to join Swoon Reads, I already had two manuscripts written. The first you all know now as No Love Allowed and the second, which at the time was called Disclaimer: I Like Boys. I’m not sure how many of you were able to catch it on the site.

Anyway, several drafts, tweaks, and rereads later, No Holding Back was born. And it’s official birthday will be October 18, 2016. Add it to your Goodreads TBR today!


Yup! Nathan and Preston’s story comes out six months after Didi and Caleb’s.

So hold on to your Dean Winchesters, friends. It’s gonna be a wild ride. To Europe and back. Love locks. Blarney stones. Chicken Noodle Soups of love. And many, MANY more.
