J.B. McGee

Goodreads Author

in Augusta, GA, The United States



Member Since
September 2012


J.B. McGee was born and raised in Aiken, South Carolina. She is the mother of two beautiful children and a stay at home mom/entrepreneur. She finished her Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education at the University of South Carolina-Aiken in 2006. During her time studying children's literature, a professor had encouraged her to become a writer.

In 2011, it was discovered that both of her children, she, and her husband have Mitochondrial Disease, a disease that has no cure or treatments. Being a writer allows J.B. to remain close to her family, work on raising awareness for this disease, and to lose herself in the stories that she creates for her fans.

J.B. McGee and her family now reside in Buford, Georgia. She is an Amazon Top 100

Hi Tanya,

Thanks so much for your message. Unfortunately, my life has been less than predictable the last year or so. For this reason, I'm not setting release dates, but I do hope that 2015 will be a year of completion for me. I have so many partial manuscripts that need to be finished. The best way to stay up to date is to sign up for my newsletter, which can be found on my website: http://www.jbmcgee.com .

Thanks for your support and your question.

My little Facebook page recently got 10,000 likes! I remember starting Broken on August 12, 2012. It was more of an experiment to see if I could write a short story. If maybe that short story could make us enough money to buy us groceries. We were living in poverty on food stamps. I had to borrow money from my dad to hire a cover artist and editor. Once I started writing, though, I couldn't sto... Read more of this blog post »

“You look…” he shook his head looking her up and down, “You look delicious. If I don’t get you out of here, I’m going to devour you like it’s my birthday, and you’re my cake.”
J.B. McGee, Mending

“I have tried to get you off my mind for the entire summer. I know that we don’t really know each other. I had to see if I saw you again, if I touched you again, if this, this feeling would still be here.”
J.B. McGee, Broken

“I have more baggage than baggage claim. I'm damaged goods. I'm not good at...” she released him for a moment and fingered between the two of them “this.”

“Well, I think you're dancing just fine, Miss Gerhart.” he smirked. He knew that was not what she meant, but he had hoped to lighten their mood. Maybe if he could get her to relax she would give him a chance.”
J.B. McGee, Broken

“Gabby couldn't believe what he had just said. Her mouth gaped open and a flirty smile came over her. She slowly peeled her half wet white t-shirt over her head and then slowly shimmied out of her shorts. What had gotten into her? She had never acted like this before, but she suddenly felt playful, fun and daring. If he wanted to play, so could she.”
J.B. McGee, Broken

“She smiled from ear to ear at the thought of knowing his name. She perched herself up onto her tip toes to try to be able to get a good look at him. He was smiling a charming smile and he escorted his bridesmaid through the manmade aisle. Again, like before as his proximity got closer, so did the intense feelings she felt burning inside of her body. She tried really hard to not feel them. She wished she had something stronger to drink to dull the uncomfortable and scary emotions he was bringing out in her.”
J.B. McGee, Broken

“I'm not sure what I'm going to do."

Lexi gasped. "You mean…"

"Look, I don't know what to do yet. I just knew that's what you wanted," he saying eyeing her mussed appearance.

"That's not what I wanted."

"If it wasn't, you wouldn't have let me do it," he told her simply.

"I wanted answers."

"And I don't have any.”
K.A. Linde, Avoiding Commitment

“this was meant for you. Only you.”
K.A. Linde, Avoiding Commitment

“Lexi, I've wanted to tell you for so long." [...] "That I love you.”
K.A. Linde, Avoiding Commitment

Chris- Bookaddict Hiya JB, Thanks for the friend invite here !!!!!

message 5: by Fred

Fred Hey! So excited to be your friend here! I am sure getting a kick out of getting to know you, and am super looking forward to reading your series. Trying hard to win them in the auction, but will get my hands on them one way or the other, for sure! Thanks for being a fun friend and cool person!

message 4: by J.B.

J.B. McGee Right, I think she has great chemistry with Ramsey, too - and I liked how sweet he was to her. I just feel like you do, it's always gonna be Jack.

No love triangle really. It does have a past/present setup. There might be a little bit of a love triangle in the second book. ;)

Taryn at My Secret Romance You know, sometimes I really like Ramsey, but it's Jack that was meant to be. Lexi said it in the first book, that it's always been Jack.

That's so sweet that Kyla gave you advice when writing! Do your books have a love triangle of sorts?

message 2: by J.B.

J.B. McGee YES! I was inspired greatly by Avoiding Commitment to write Broken. K.A. Linde even gave me a little advice right as I started the book. I love love love Jack and Lexie. Definitely think there is no way that they can not be soul mates with their relationship. I hope they can work it out. I don't feel like there are a ton of us on Team Jack. I like Ramsey, too - but he seems too good to be true. He's gotta have some skeletons in his closet. lol

message 1: by Taryn at My Secret Romance (last edited Oct 12, 2012 01:12PM)

Taryn at My Secret Romance Thanks for friend requesting me!!

I see that K.A. Linde is one of your influences and that you feel Jack and Lexi are soul mates. HELLOO!! You are my new best friend!
