It may still be winter in your part of the world, but where I live…summer is coming!! And so are the lifeguards. 😍

The first installment of the Beach Squad series is here: Sweet Dreams, the story of Ivan and Esa…

After the devastating loss of my parents when I was in college, I vowed to focus all my energy on fulfilling my promise to my mom: to open up the hot chocolate store we’d always dreamed of running together. 

No distractions. My plans are set.

But things heat up faster than I can handle when a bronzed lifeguard pursues me in the most delicious of ways. Mix in a stalker determined to throw me off my game, and a comical, ass-kicking Beach Squad (okay, ‘squad’ is a littler over the top…it’s just me and my two best friends)…well, then you have a situation that requires a level of bravery I don’t know if I possess.

I may appear to be a damsel in distress, but I can save my own damn self, thank you very much. And I might just keep that hottie lifeguard as the whipped cream on top of my sweet dreams.

PS – When you read Sweet Dreams, you will more than likely be begging me for Bailey’s story. She’s Esa’s best friend and a kick in the pants. Fear not, I have you covered. Bailey’s story is written and just going through the editing process. I will release her story, chapter by chapter, to my reader group starting in April. Make sure you sign up!
