Dawna Raver didn't always want to be a writer, but now the voices in her head won't shut the f**k up and the stories keep coming.

The Indulging Series, under D.L. Raver, was her first new adult erotic romance series, and is proud that Zolt Hamil from this series was voted in top ten list of Fictional Boyfriends' top Fictional Boyfriends

When she's not spending time in her fantasy world, Dawna loves NFL football, reading, and pretending she's a top chef in the kitchen---even though experiments often lead to ordering out.

Oh, and fawning over her dogs and husband, sometimes in that order. voices in her head keep sending her stories, ranging from new adult, romantic fantasy and contemporary romance.

Too Late by Colleen Hoover
"Mixed feelings with the epilogue

Honestly, this book would have been rated higher if it ended at 65% before the first of a zillion epilogues started. In the never-ending epilogues it just got weird. Too many unbelievable scenarios left me shaking m..." Read more of this review »

I know. Can't wait.

Nicole Cold Days now has cover art and a release date!!!

Nicole Found the discussion about 1-star reviews posted by people who hadn't read the book, but my eyes glazed over after a dozen-or-so posts. It may not be fair or kind, but jerks are allowed to have free speech.

Sassy Smut Thanks for the Goodreads friendship add. I look forward to comparing books and reviews.
