I don't have any concrete plans to do that, no. But if I ever went back to write about any characters in the LOSING IT series, it would be Max and Cade. I've toyed with the idea of even writing another full book about them a few years in the future. But that's still just an idea. At the moment I'm quite busy with other books I've commited to write. :) (less)

I was going to have sex.
With a boy.

“Are you waiting for an invitation?” I asked, eyeing him standing carefully outside my door. “Is this the part where you tell me you’re a vampire?” He chuckled. “No, I promise the paleness is only because I’m British.”

“It wasn’t until I’d walked halfway across the parking lot that I realized: 1. I wasn’t wearing shoes.
A. Or a shirt.
2. I didn’t bring my keys                      
A. Or anything really.
3. I’d just left a complete stranger in my apartment.                      
A. Naked.

Whoever said one-night stands were supposed to be simple with no strings attached had clearly never met the disaster that was me.”
