Three Broken Promises (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Dec 12, 2013 11:10AM
Description: Commitment. That’s what I really want from Colin. Ever since my brother, Danny, died in Iraq, Colin’s done so much to help me, including giving me a job at his popular restaurant so I can leave my crappy waitressing job at the strip joint. But lying in bed with him every night to comfort him from his horrible nightmares isn’t enough anymore. I know he feels guilty about Danny’s death, about not going to Iraq, but I can’t keep living this double life. I love him desperately, but he’s got so many demons, and if he can’t open up to me now, then he’ll never be the real partner I need him to be. I gave him a month, and now I’m out of here. If he truly loves me like he says, he knows where to find me.
Second Chance Boyfriend (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 18, 2013 07:31PM
Description: Lost. That one single word best describes my life at this very moment. I lost the last games of the season and both my team and my coach blame me. I lost the last two months because I drowned in my own despair like a complete loser. And I lost the only girl who ever mattered because I was afraid being with me would destroy her. But now I realize how truly lost I am without her. She has become my story...and even though she acts like she’s moved on, I know she still thinks about me just as much as I think about her. She’s beautiful, sweet—and so damn vulnerable, all I want to do is help her. Be there for her. Love her... If only I could convince Fable to give me a second chance. Then I wouldn’t feel so lost anymore, and neither would she. We could be found together. Forever.
One Week Girlfriend (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 10, 2013 08:45AM
Description: Temporary. That one single word best describes my life these last few years. I’m working at a temporary job until I can finally break free. I’m my little brother’s temporary mother since our mom doesn’t give a crap about either of us. And I’m that temporary girl all the guys want to get with because I give it up so easily. According to the rumors, at least. But now I’m the temporary girlfriend of Drew Callahan, college football legend and all around golden guy. He’s beautiful, sweet—and he’s hiding way more secrets than I am. He’s brought me into this fake life where everyone seems to hate me. And everyone seems to want something from him. The only thing he seems to want though is… Me. I don’t know what to believe anymore. All I know is, I think Drew needs me. And I want to be there for him. Forever.

Haven't written a review for a book I've read all year! How remiss of me...

This is a good one peeps. Cora is at her best - it's sweet and full of angst and very very sexy. Silas is delicious. I love him. A lot. Which means I love Cora. A lot. :)

Tanya- The Book Obsessed Momma / Tanya Vought Author Monica,
Thanks for writing such amazing books! I just purchased the 2nd book today and finished it already! I loved how you made Drew and Fable come together in this book. I loved everything about them! You certainly know how to make the characters feel so real that you can't wait to just want them to have their HEA. You are amazing and I loved both stories!!!!
I'm so happy with how you had it end and their love together/processing everything together/the good/bad ugly but facing it together forever! Wonderful!!! :)
