Relentless is finally here!!

Relentless is now available at the following retailers:

I know many of you have been waiting very patiently (some not so patiently) for this day. I gave myself a couple of weeks from the time I completed Relentless to release date for logistics and, as usual, I’ve come in ahead of schedule. I worked my butt off to get it to you sooner because I love you all so much.

When you read the acknowledgments you’ll understand that, like the Luke series, this is another story written from the heart. I’ve had many friends and family members, as well as myself, who’ve been affected by addiction and the foster care system. I’m just so glad I have amazing people in my life who are willing to share their experiences with me.

I also have the world’s greatest beta readers.

Thank you to everyone who helped with the writing and release of Relentless. Don’t forget that there are two release parties happening on Monday.

The Bad Boys Book Release party on Goodreads will be giving away four gift cards to celebrate the release of Billionaire Novelist #4 by Mimi Strong and Relentless. Make sure you sign up for that event and enter the giveaway on Monday.

Karen Anderson and I will be hosting a Relentless release party on Facebook on Monday with some Relentless trivia! To play along, join the event and get your copy of Relentless ready. Read the first four chapters as I will be asking questions about the book. Every answer is entered for a chance to win gift cards, paperbacks, and ebook copies of some of my books and some my favorite books.

Hope you all have wonderful weekends. See you Monday!


Claire Nixon is a twenty-year-old college dropout with a secret.

To Claire, Adam Parker is just another flirty customer at the cafe, until a chance encounter and seemingly innocent comment spurs a bet between them. The bet is simple: If Adam can get Claire to reveal the secret that made her drop out of college, she has to re-enroll. If he doesn’t succeed, she gets to keep her secret and he has to stop stalking her at the cafe.

Claire thinks she has this one in the bag. She’s perfected the art of forgetting her past. But she isn’t prepared for Adam’s relentless pursuit or for him to share his own secrets. And she’s definitely not prepared for her rock star ex, and her secret, to come banging down her door one year later.

New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language, drug use, and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

    It seems the title for book two has slipped out into the wild. The first person to leave the correct title as a comment on my blog will find out the inspiration behind the title (so long as you promise not to share it with anyone else) and will also receive an ARC of book two.

    I’m so torn between Claire, Cora, and Adam! Claire is so strong and has overcome so much. Adam is a dreamboat with a surfboard. Cora is such wisdom and so spry for her age. I just can’t decide!

    Oh, dear lord how I loved this book! Seriously, I’m not sure I can pick one favorite character though. Lol
    I loved them all in their own way. I will say though that I’m leaning towards Adam because of his persistence. Gotta love a guy that goes for what he wants.

    I really do LOVE Adam, BUT I have a soft spot for musicians so Chris is my favorite!

  42. Haley white March 7, 2013 at 8:05 pm - Reply

    Okay I honestly can not pick a favorite for this book. I loved how Adam and Clair were both together. And I really enjoyed how well written this book was. I read a lot, I mean like a book a day, and in every book, I know what the main characters deep dark secret is by the time I’m a quarter through it. I absolutely loved how I had no idea what Clair was keeping from Adam! It made the story so much more emotional for me not knowing ahead.

    I am dying to find out what happens next! 🙂 I know I won’t be disappointed!

    I like Chris. I really do, I think there is more to read about him. But I have to say if I have to pick my favourite character from your books that would be Luke <3

  45. Judy March 7, 2013 at 11:32 pm - Reply

    I like Chris’s character. He seems genuinely a great guy and they had a deep relationship that developed through 4 years (they had an strong bond which is rare in relationships and would be so sad to not see that work out.) and is obviously still in love with Claire and has always been. However, since he wasn’t established in this book it would assume that he wont win out in the end. Unfortunately there was not enough in this book to garner enough sympathy for Chris to win out. Unless Chris turns out to be a huge douche, Im all for Team CHRIS.

    Can’t wait for book#2. I really like when an author writes a woman’s character that comes from “nothing” and makes het strong because of her past… would have to say Claire!! =) Thanks for the chance to win an arc!!

    I can’t wait for #2….I would have have to say that Claire is my fav character. I love it when an author writes a woman’s character that comes from “nothing” and makes her into a strong animator to what life has giving her through circumstances. Thanks for the chance to win an arc!!
