I would like to ask you a favor, 
nothing big....
It's just that I was wondering that if and when you decided you

would you mind doing so through this link right
so that I can get credit or smiles for referring you??

Please and thanks.

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far.
I'm up a little earlier than I would have liked to be for a Saturday
morning, but...that's alright.
I can certainly always find PLENTY of things to do to keep myself busy.

Disclosure: I received some sort of compensation for writing this post and giving my

Meet the Author 


I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember; journals, poems, and short stories. I always wanted to write a novel and started several over the years, but for some reason I could never see them through to the end. Until Eva came along.

 I was abandoned as a child, at about the age of 2 or 3 which I strangely never gave a lot of thought to. Then I became a mother. When my youngest child was about 2, I watched him sleeping one night as I often did. But this night, I was gripped by this heart-wrenching realization that he was about the age that I was when my parents left me. Something stirred inside of me, and eventually Eva was born. “Leaving Eva” began as a story of a girl who was heartlessly abandoned, and then her story took on a life of its own. It was no longer the story that I began, and it became something else entirely.

 I am happy to have finally gotten in touch with my inner Author. She’s always been there lying dormant inside of me, reflecting in other parts of my life. But now she is awake and alive, shining through me every day.

 I am very fortunate to have a wonderful supportive husband, two beautiful children, and an incredible family. I have a career that is rewarding and challenging and I get to work with amazing, funny, talented people every day.

 Writing has been an escape, a refuge, and an outlet for me. I feel so lucky to get to channel my energy and my creativity through my writing.

 I hope that my readers will continue to stay with me through my journey as I grown and evolve. I am so grateful for the support I’ve received and the amazing people that I’ve encountered along the way!

“You look rattled.”

 She shook her head. “He gets under my skin. Ever since the…” She stopped, realizing all attention was on her. “Never mind. What do you need?”

 “I was going to start fixing this place up. I wanted to see if it was okay with you.” Mason glanced toward the building.

 “Yeah, it’s fine.” She saw her assistant’s car pull in to the parking lot and breathed a sigh of relief. “Only on a few conditions.”

 Mason chuckled. “Okay.”

 “Stay away from the Skulls and stay away from McNally.”

 His lips tilted up in a grin. “I don’t make promises I can’t keep.”

 “I mean it. If I have to stop everything to bail you out of jail, I’m going to be pissed.” 

 He licked his lips. “Then I’ll promise to stay out of jail.”

 “Leave McNally alone.” She didn’t like the look on his face when he questioned her about him. Mason had a way of fixing things. She didn’t need a hurt officer linked to her as well. 

 “Tell me something.” Mason put his back to his goons and faced her. “Does he have the hots for you?”

 Addison glanced toward her assistant and wished Ashley would pick up the pace some. “You need to stay away from him. He does not like the MC and now that I’m involved, who knows.”

 “I’m not worried about that little shithead. You shouldn’t be either. I’m protecting you. 
You’re mine.” 

 Ashley’s eyes widened and Addison grabbed Mason’s arm, dragging him out of earshot. “You are not with me. I’m not yours, no matter what happened between us. I’ve told you that it will not happen again.”

 The grin returned and she damn near melted into a puddle of goo. He leaned down so his mouth hovered inches from hers. He smelled so good, Addison had to force herself to remain upright....  Now she needed to break free and get back to her regular life. 

 “You say that like you mean it, but I’m not completely convinced.”
