For every author, excitement abounds on book release day and during release week. We want EVERYONE to read our books. I mean – right! Of course, I’m right. Buy our books. Read our books. Love our books. We repeat these phrases in our sleep as we dream about ways to get even more readers to buy our baby. Unless…

For every author, they have a list of individuals they don’t want reading their book. Their reasons will vary, but their list exists. If you don’t believe me, ask an author. Here is my list of the top five individuals I don’t want reading my books.

The Top 5 People Who Should Not Read The Attraction of Adeline

  1. My 80-year-old mother-in-law. Bless her heart. She insists on buying all of my books and reading all of my books even though I know the shock from each sex scene she has read is why she no longer has to go to her beautician to get her hair permed. It’s gone from naturally straight to down-right curly.

  1. My boss. He has this view of me as wholesome. I’m pretty sure if he ever read one of my sex scenes, he’d never be able to make eye-contact with me again. Then again, if he can’t make eye contact, the number of times he drops by my office and asks me to help him out with something would decrease. Hmmm.
  1. My children. Maybe I’ll change my mind on this once they’re married and have children. Then again, who am I kidding? They don’t need to read any of my books. Ever.
  1. Any boy who dates my daughter. He, whoever he might be for any given season, does not need me planting any ideas in his head.
  1. My dad. I’m his little girl. Will always be his little girl. There are some things he’s better off not knowing about his little girl. The explicitness of my sex scenes is one of them. The fact I’m the one who dented his truck way back when is another. But, that’s a whole other list.

If you didn’t make my list, I’d be thrilled if you were to buy my book, read my book, love my book.  To make this easy for you, here is a one stop shop.

Happy reading,

The Attraction of Adeline:

Fake it until you make it…

The Proposal: Adeline Rigby will live with Accountant Jack Foster and pretend to be his fake fiancée for one month in order for him to seal a promotion to partner. In return, Accountant Jack Foster will intimately tutor Adeline Rigby in French before she leaves for Paris where she will fulfill her dream of attending Le Cordon Bleu.

The Terms:

  1. Maintain distance. Three get-to-know-you dates before announcing their engagement will be tempting enough.

  2. No kissing. Okay, fine. Three kisses. Maybe four. And neck kisses don’t count.

3. No touchy feely stuff. Or at least not too many public displays of touchy-feely stuff.

  1. No sex.

  2. All right, all right. One night of sex in order to be a believable engaged couple.

  3. Two nights of mind-blowing sex to make sure first night wasn’t a fluke.

  4. Absolutely, positively, no falling in love.
