C.L. Matthews lives in lala-landia with her husband and invisible friends. She wants to riot the lack thereof authentic Mexican food in her state, but she’s an introvert at heart. She enjoys tacos, Red Bull, and warm water because she’s crazy. She’s an oddball, and realizes it’s been mentioned before, just go with it. Her joys in life consist of writing unconventional romances, making book covers, causing havoc to her reader’s hearts, and genre-hopping when she needs a change of scenery. She’s a special kind of weird and enjoys every moment of it.

GOODBYE 2018

It's been a great year.
Not just personally, but for my growth as an author as well.
We've come to the inevitable end, the goodbye, the bittersweet farewell.
And as I look back at the year, I'm stunned at everything I've done. For a moment, I'll be real with you.
This year started out rough, between not knowing exactly where I was going with my writing, or if I even wanted to continue. But then it hit Read more of this blog post »

"Cassie's best book to date! The writing, the characters, the story-line? F*cking amazing. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but she had me from the first page. I'm so glad I popped my RH cherry with this book. I need more!"

Here Lives a Corpse by C.L. Matthews
"As an author myself, it isn't often that I read a book and can't somewhat predict where the story is going. It's a side effect of the job--when I read, my brain is constantly thinking 10 steps ahead, plotting. Well, I can say with absolute certainty," Read more of this review »

Reign of a King by Rina Kent

One word: Daddy.

Rina always has a way to bring a character (or several) to their knees, but what she does and I never expect as a reader, is to bring me to my knees.

Daddy has always been mine. (Fighting is fruitless, but feel free.)

“Author Dating Rule #3: Edit your online dating profile.
Pervs are the million pennies lying in a vat of ten nickels.”
C.L. Matthews, The Dating Games

“You’re the sweetest fucking thing in the world. I’d never be able to forget you,” I profess, my eyes never leaving her scared ones. “This is real. This is us. And if you let it be, this is forever.”
C.L. Matthews, Inhale, Exhale.

“I’m going to love you now, Lo. Truly, insanely, and wholeheartedly.”
C.L. Matthews, Inhale, Exhale.

Topics Mentioning This Author

“I’m kind of hoping it will end like this. You made me happy. Very happy. But…you deserve everything. Wife, kids, a white picket fence.”

“And I’ll have all of it. With you.”
“You know that can’t happen with me.”
“Then it can’t happen with anyone. There won’t be a next Rosie. And there won’t be another story like ours. This is it, Rose LeBlanc. And this is us. If there is no you, then there is no me.”

“You know, I always hated Romeo and Juliet . The play. The movie. The very idea. It was tragic, all right. Tragically stupid. I mean, they were what? Thirteen? Sixteen? What a waste of life, to kill yourself because your family wouldn’t let you get hitched. But Romeo and Juliet were right. I was the next eleven years killing myself slowly while I grieved for you. Then you came back, and I still thought it was just a fascination. But now that I know…”

“Now that I know that it can only ever be you, you’re going to get better for me so Earth won’t explode. Can you do that, Sirius? I promise not to leave this room until you get out. Not even for a shower. Not even to get you your chocolate chip cookies. I’ll get someone to drive all the way to New York and bring them for you.”

“I love you.” Rosie’s tears curtained her vision.
“I love you, Baby LeBlanc,” I said. “So fucking much. You taught me how to love. How well did I do?”
“A-plus,” she whispered. “You aced it. Can you promise me something?”
“Anything.”
“ Live .”
“Not without you.”
“And have kids. Lots of them. They’re fun.” “Rosie…”
“I’m not afraid. I got what I wanted from this life. You .”
“Rosie.”
“I love you, Earth. You were good to me.” “Rose!”
Her eyes closed, the door opened, the sound on her monitor went off, and my heart disintegrated.
Piece.
By piece.
By piece.”
L.J. Shen, Ruckus

“God and Dean are synonyms. Save battery power. Choose one next time you text me. What do you want to have for dinner?”
L.J. Shen, Ruckus

“because I still looked every inch of a quarterback monster who only answered to the words ‘God’ and ‘Daddy’.”
L.J. Shen, Ruckus

“I love you,” she whispered. “I love you so much that I hated you for a while. And now that I know that you are damaged, I love you even more. Perfect things are not relatable. Unbreakable is fascinating, but not lovable. You’re breakable, Dean Cole. I’m going to do my best to keep you whole.”
L.J. Shen, Ruckus

“Like you?” My face twisted in abhorrence, spitting the words like they were revolting. Her eyes widened. I shook my head, a dark chuckle on my lips. “You think I fucking like you? Are you kidding me here? I don’t like you. I love you. Even that’s an under-fucking-statement. I live for you. I breathe for you. I will die for you. It. Has. Always. Been. You. Ever since I saw your sorry ass for the first time on that threshold and you fucking poked me in the chest like I was a toy. We’ve been apart for ten years, Rose LeBlanc, and not even one day has passed without me thinking of you. And not just in passing. You know, the occasional she-could-have-been-a-g reat-fuck. I mean really taking my time to think about you. Wondering what you looked like. Where youwere. What you were doing. Who you were with. I stalked you on Facebook. And Twitter—which, by the way, you need to deactivate because you never once bothered to tweet—but you aren’t exactly a social media animal. I asked about you. Every time I was in town. And once I realized you were in New York with Millie…” “Rosie, I bought a new penthouse in TriBeca a few months before you moved into our building.”

“Why are you telling me this?” She blinked away her tears, but fresh ones rolled down to replace them time. “Because I had to sell it and lost a shit-ton of money the moment I realized you were going to be my neighbor if I stayed in my current place. Real talk, Rosie, you are all I ever wanted. Even when you wanted me to be with your sister. She was a comforting candle. You were the dazzling sun. I’d lived in the dark—for your selfish ass. And if you think I’m going to settle for something , you’re dead wrong. I am taking everything . We will have kids, Rose LeBlanc. We will have a wedding. And we will have joy and vacations and days where we just fuck and days where we just fight and days where we just live. Because this is life, Baby LeBlanc, and I love the fuck out of you, so I’m going to give you the best one there is. Got it?”
L.J. Shen, Ruckus
