“Oh my god, please tell me that was not your plan.”


After being pushed off the stage at the VMAs last year, Alec Andreas’s life hasn’t gotten much better. Music fans everywhere hate him for his poor treatment of ex-girlfriend and former bandmate, Jenna Rollins. Fearing the backlash, the music industry has all but shunned him. 


Afraid of falling into obscurity, Alec reluctantly takes a spot on the new reality show Starving with the Stars, where failing celebrities are stranded on a desert island to compete in challenges and outlast one another—and hopefully revive their flagging careers. Alec is certain that only one thing will make him likeable in the public eye; he needs to cuddle up to one of the cute girls on the island and remind all of America what a great boyfriend he can be.


When he meets Jillian Fall—an aspiring Broadway actress who’s become a cabaret-singing internet meme—he finds much more than the arm candy he was hoping for. And what can be the harm in reviving his career and getting the girl?


Alec’s falling deeper than he thought possible, but as the contestants vie for the coveted final spots in their island adventure, his schemes are brought to light. Alec’s lost everything, but losing her hurts the worst.


With the cameras always watching, can Alec convince Jillian he cares about her more than changing his image as pop music’s most notorious liar?


Starving With the Stars is a standalone romance with no cliffhanger, no cheating, and a swoon-worthy Happily Ever After. There is some R-rated sexual content and swearing.


"Packed with outrageous drama, family turmoil, and the tease of a love triangle, THE EXTRA sweeps the reader into the tumultuous life of a soap opera set." –Kelly Siskind, author of New Orleans Rush


"Delightful, spunky, and deliciously well-written" –Bestselling Author Jen Greyson

In this stand-alone sequel to THE EXTRA, Anna-Marie has never wanted to find love—but love's about to find her.


Anna-Marie Halsey loves her job as a regular on the soap opera Southern Heat almost as much as she loves living the LA lifestyle: clubbing and partying and casually dating gorgeous men—most recently powerhouse agent Josh Rios. When Anna-Marie starts feeling more-than-casual about Josh—her signature cue to break things off—she finds a much-needed excuse to get away: a family reunion in small-town Wyoming. 


In Wyoming, Anna-Marie remembers why she's spent years avoiding her crazy family and claustrophobic hometown—and her ex-boyfriend, up-and-coming rock musician Shane Beckstrom, provides the perfect distraction. But when a Boy Scout troop films them nude in a hot spring, Anna-Marie finds Wyoming even more nerve-wracking than her paralyzing fear of commitment. To make matters worse, Josh Rios appears, and it’s clear that commitment is exactly what he's hoping for. Anna-Marie isn’t sure what she wants, but being trapped in Everett, Wyoming, with Josh, Shane, and her crazy family when her impromptu sex-tape hits the internet sure isn’t it.


THE GIRLFRIEND STAGE is book two in THE EXTRA series, but it stands alone, and can be read first, without missing anything except the backgrounds of the side characters.  It features PG-13 rated sexual content, no cliff-hanger, and a swoon-worthy Happily Ever After.

The Extra


Gabby Mays wishes she had her future figured out, like her gorgeous roommate Anna-Marie, who has just landed a role on the hit soap opera Passion Medical. Gabby would give anything to find a career she's half as passionate about as Anna-Marie is about acting—and a love life that isn't comprised of nights with a party-sized bag of Doritos and her Netflix account.


When Gabby becomes a recurring extra on Passion Medical, she finds a job she's surprisingly great at. Even better, her old crush and ex-boss—the sexy, sweet Will Bowen—is writing the scripts, allowing Gabby lots of quality flirting time at the craft services table.


But between feuding divas, fake Emmys, and Gabby's growing concern that Will might not see her as anything more than a friend, her life on set is quickly becoming a drama worthy of the soaps.

Everything We Are


Felix never believed in soulmates . . . until he met her.


Felix Mays has only two goals in life—to play his cello and to stay off heroin. He's only a few weeks out of rehab and accomplishing both—barely. Then Felix meets gorgeous Jenna Rollins, single mom and half of the rising pop-star duo Alec and Jenna, who've practically been voted LA's cutest couple. Jenna offers Felix a job with the band, and it's an opportunity he can't refuse, even though his feelings for Jenna are quickly turning romantic.


Then Felix learns the truth—Alec and Jenna have been broken up for over a year, and maintain their couple-image just for the fans. Jenna is falling for Felix as fast he is for her, but she and Alec have agreed not to date anyone until the band has peaked—and that's clearly years away. 


Felix and Jenna are determined to make it work, despite the strain on their careers, their relationships with the band, and even Felix's struggling sobriety. A situation this stressful is the last thing Felix needs—and the one thing he can't bring himself to walk away from.


The Jenna Rollins Real Love Tour


Felix and Jenna can’t wait to start their future—but first they have to contend with their past.


Newlyweds Jenna and Felix are thrilled to be touring as a married couple, even though it means learning how to be a brand-new family while on the road. They're far less thrilled about the threatening letters Jenna's been receiving from her violent ex-boyfriend, Grant—and Jenna fears her past will come back to haunt her, just when everything is going so well.


The band increases security and hopes for the best, even as the pressure of the threats, the tour, and Felix's still-fledgling sobriety become overwhelming. But when disaster strikes, Felix and Jenna are each forced to confront their own demons—things they thought they'd left forever in the past. They must learn to rely on each other in their frightening new circumstances—or risk losing everything they love most.


Plus BONUS EXCLUSIVE EBOOK


Everything We Might Have Been


What if Felix and Jenna had met in high school?


Felix and Jenna have the perfect love story in Everything We Are, but what would happen if they’d met in high school, when their lives are worlds apart? In this reimagining, read about what would have happened if Jenna had attended Felix’s high school in Los Angeles, and they met before rock bands or heroin addictions entered the picture.


High school students Felix and Jenna are opposites in every way. Felix is a Juilliard-bound straight-A student, while Jenna’s a teen mom who’s out partying and sleeping with a different guy every weekend. But when they’re partnered together on a parenting assignment in sex-ed, their worlds collide, and their lives will never be the same.
