I'm sorry I'm seeing this so late! Gah. I was slacking on the Goodreads tip. LOL! I'm on it now!

I get asked about Jade lot, actually! I'm not sure if you've already read STILL, but I do have plans to write Iz and Callie, who are featured in that book. Even if it's a novella. I'm not sure which other characters from the GRIP series I'll revisit. I spent a lot of time in that world, between the GRIP Series and the SOUL series, which is Rhyson and Kai's series. it was 6 books, so we'll see. I'm focused on my HOOP series right now. I'll keep you guys posted for sure!

“It sounds silly, I know. But for me, the power of music rests in its ability to reach inside and touch the places where the deepest cuts lie.
Like a benevolent god, a good song will never let you down.
And sometimes, when you're trying to find your way, one of those gods actually shows up and gives you directions.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star

“Everyone feels that void. Everyone who has the balls to look inside themselves, anyway. It's what life's all about.. A search.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, God-Shaped Hole

“Is it simple that I can’t stop thinking about you? About the kiss in that hospital room?” He took one step, eating up the small space separating them until he knew she could hear his whisper. “About how you taste? How you feel? Is that simple, Kerris?”
Kennedy Ryan, When You Are Mine

“It was only an instant. The look that passed between them was like a flare in the pitch of night. Bright. Hot. Sudden and then gone. Her skin heated as if Walsh had kissed her. As if he had caressed her. As if he had possessed her. And maybe he had with one look. Kerris glanced around, searching each face, certain someone had witnessed the moment. So intimate out in the open. All the things she couldn’t say and shouldn’t feel rose up in her chest, suffocating her from the inside.”
Kennedy Ryan, When You Are Mine

“The pain of a lost brother, of the enmity that tangled like barbed wire between him and the best friend he’d ever had, sliced over the still-throbbing wound of his futile, thwarted love for Kerris. His heart was being ripped from his chest.”
Kennedy Ryan, When You Are Mine

Kennedy Ryan ***Is BE MINE FOREVER truly a standalone?****

You know, I wrote BMF so that you CAN jump in, even though it is the third book in the series, but I don't think you SHOULD. I'm not saying that just to get you to buy the first 2 books.

Though WHEN YOU ARE MINE is STILL on half off sale for some reason! LOL! (amzn.com/B00GWOFF5I)

I say this. The richest reading experience will definitely be if you have read the two previous books because Cam's story, of all of them, is the most redemptive. And if you don't see the scope of what he has done and experienced in the first 2 books, and have that history as a backdrop, you lose a layer of that redemption. Cam gets a lot of ire because of his actions in the first 2 books, and my favorite thing is to see the ‪#‎CamConverts‬. Folks who really disliked him before, learning to love him. If you never hated him, you miss out on that! LOL! I do love seeing people who are meeting for the first time in book 3 fall for him! I was just chatting with a few people who have read all 3 books, and they were just like - nooo!!! Tell people to read the other 2 books first. They HAVE to.

So I'm telling you...that I would if I were you. LOL!
