A place for books that don't fall into the Universe or Stars Landing series.

It's super top secret! lol.

So it's an "asshole who redeems himself" plot, as I've said. It's a personal favorite of my beta readers and I am, in a way, writing it for her.

I am more than halfway done right now and I am sending the second installment off to a beta reader tonight for some feedback.

For what I can tell you... umm... there's not any action/mystery/suspense subplot. This is a basic love story. Which is a bit new for me. But because of the lack of subplot, I think it is perhaps more emotionally engaging than previous books.

It's a 'chick caught in an impossible situation' kind of thing. She (Prue, short for Prudence) has no real choice but to put up with his (Byron St. James) shit. And, well, ya know... he's hot and things eventually develop despite her knowing its a terrible idea.

Byron is a very alpha personality- blunt, in-your-face, no-holds-barred, you kinda know exactly what is on his mind because he tells you.

Prue is a lot more repressed, finds it hard to communicate, but can be a bit of a spitfire when she's riled. It's those 'gushy' emotions she struggles with lol.

I think that's all I can give you for specifics right now.

I WILL say I am finding this book really quote-able. I have 11 teasers already at just past the half-way point. I usually only have 5-6 teasers total.

So... yeah... any specific questions? That I may or may not answer lol

Yay! I'm so glad you're liking him. I know Byron is def going to be a love-him or hate-him character. But I loved him pretty hard myself :)

Dusti Hanrahan | 147 comments Oh I adore him! I love how you tipped your pinky into a little D/s and, if I do say so myself, you've given me 2 new men in Matt and Aaron.

Okay. I am heavy into edits on Into The Green. Who is going to be reading? I have to say it was a really good exercise for my brain to create this whole new world. Now I am onto SHANE!!!

You're actually the reason I decided to stop pussy-footing around and rewrite it already. Ever since you asked me where it was, it's been on my mind. I really love this world and the creative freedom I get in escaping into it. Hopefully this does relatively well so I can give some side characters their own stories ;)

Nadré Wiggill (nadrenoeni) | 67 comments Awww! I'm so glad! Can't wait to see what you've done with it!

Alright, I have a random question. I've seen comments on this particular idiom in reviews twice and I was curious if it was really that "out there" that most of you don't understand it, or if it was just foreign to a handful of readers.

Do you guys know what "worry the floors" means?


message 23: by Nadré (new)

Nadré Wiggill (nadrenoeni) | 67 comments doesn't that have to do with pacing?

Nadré wrote: "doesn't that have to do with pacing?"

Yes. Exactly. It's just another way to say "pacing". I have read it phrased that way in another book once too so I know it's just not some silly phrase I made up. Alright. Just checking to make sure I wasn't being a little too crazy in my turns of phrases.

The blurb should be on the book page on GR:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

But here it is too:


-Cece-
There are a few things I learned recently:
The love of my life, well, wasn't.
My new roommate is a kook.
Nothing is the way I had believed my whole life.



-Jasper-
Some things are abundantly clear:
My sister is missing.
I have her new roommate tagging along into a dangerous realm she knows nothing about.
And Cece, well, she is nothing like what she appears.

I have ideas for several others but it really depends on how this one does. Not necessarily commercially, but feedback wise. If it's not a hit with readers, i don't see more happening anytime soon seeing as i have so many other books in my queue.

Although I'm really looking forward to future releases in your other series, it would be a shame not to have more in this series :)

I actually have covers ready for all of them. Like this one, but seasonal. I really would eventually like to at least tell the stories for Amy, Jet, and Drake.

**Vee** (veeme) | 2 comments Hi Jess, I just finished it.... I loved it but now not sure if it was the old or new... I downloaded on KU last night (Australia time so about 4am Eastern Time in the USA) I checked and it has the old cover but Cece and Jasper are late 20's not teens... Either way if I have to read more about them it won't be a hardship! I loved it and so hope you do more! I am excited to see you are think of books for Amy, Jet and Drake because those are the three I so want!!

Oh an I am from Down Under and I know what worring the floors mean too, and it's a common saying both here and the U.K.

If you're in the US, yes. Outside of the US , I'm. Not sure. It can take longer for other countries.

If the version starts with "fuck fuck fuck men " then that's the new version: )
