Hi Suzanne,
So sorry it took me so long to get back to you!
The series is lightly connected but I've tried to write every book so that you can read it without having picked up any of the other ones. The only books that does not apply to are Because of You and I'll be Home for Christmas. Back to You can be read as stand alone but it answers a cliffhanger (that I promise I will never do again) from Because of You.

In all seriousness, though, I love getting to tell these stories. They're so important to me in so many ways. It's truly a gift. (less)

A really great look at the philosophy of assholes. More academic than I expected, it was a good look at defining your terms and then investigating the phenomenon

Excellent look at the empathy walls being exploited by American enemies but that are entirely of our own making

“Seeing how I've held your penis in my hand, I think that puts you firmly in the not a stranger category.”
Jessica Scott, Because of You

“She said nothing, refusing to meet his gaze. After a long moment, he released her.
“So that’s the way it is, then.” His words were not a question. The door closed quietly behind him, leaving her cold to the bone, hollowed out and empty. Leaving her alone. Just like always.”
Jessica Scott, Until There Was You

“I feel like I should have a formation and make the plantoon sergeants demonstrate how to put a condom on the correct way."

~Evan Loehr”

“Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a public safety hazard, don't see the danger in the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the Constitution they don't like.”
Alan Dershowitz

Jessica Scott, Until There Was You

“He was a fool.
Claire Montoya was convinced she didn’t need anyone. That her way was the only way.
He kept walking.
Because only a fool would want a woman who would never let him in. He could touch her skin, touch her body, but she’d never trust him enough to let him touch her heart. Not the way he wanted. And he couldn't do that. Not with her. Her terms were unacceptable, her barriers too high.”
Jessica Scott, Until There Was You

“You can regret the end of her life forever. Or you can remember her and honor the life she lived.”
Jessica Scott, Until There Was You

“She said nothing, refusing to meet his gaze. After a long moment, he released her.
“So that’s the way it is, then.” His words were not a question. The door closed quietly behind him, leaving her cold to the bone, hollowed out and empty. Leaving her alone. Just like always.”
