Trapped In Love Coming Soon

My next book will be the second in the MacGregor Brothers Brewing Company, Trapped In Love coming on July 19th. I have the ebooks on preorder now. It’s not live on every store yet, but some (google play) will come at a later date. There will also be paperbacks, but those will come later as well.

If you are a blogger, reader, or you just want to share about my upcoming book, you can check out the Promo Assets page I have set up for the book. You can post these graphics whenever you like. I’ll switch them out once the book is live to remove the coming soon/preorder ones. I’m going to be doing a blog tour for this one, but it’s not setup yet, I’ll post another update once signups have gone live.

In the meantime you can also sign up for my street team if you want to help support my books. What does my street team do? I’ll send you an email with a share request for cover reveals, preorder blasts, blitz countdown, or sales. All you have to do is share it. I don’t even check, and it’s completely optional. I appreciate all those who do share my graphics!

If you’re interested in getting ARCs, I’ve adjusted my process, so now you only get them if you are on the ARC team. All you have to do for that is sign up here and I ask that you write a review. But I do not require you to send me proof. I know life gets in the way or a book doesn’t work for you. And that is totally okay! The reason I changed the process is because when I did open sign up in addition to ARC team sign ups people who were already on the team were signing up on the open form and it was a mess trying to dedupe everyone. You can always reach out to me if you want to ARC read but can’t commit to a team! I will gladly send you an ARC.

I really love this book so much. It’s my favorite one I have written, and I really want it to do well. We’re still working through dev edits and then it’s off to my line/copy editor. But oof do I love this book and the cover is my ultimate favorite! I’m so excited to bring it to you all.



The Chase Cover Reveal

ICYMI The Chase, book four in the Bulldogs series is now on preorder! Planned to release on September 1st!

Now it’s time to reveal the cover!

Eep, it’s so pretty! I can’t wait to bring this book to you. TJ and Maxine were a challenge for sure. And TJ is definitely not the guy you think he is. He’s got some issues, but so does his girl. Boy, does she! You’re probably gonna be mad at me about her, but oops!

Here’s the full wrap of the book too! Paperbacks will go on preorder closer to the release date. I had some issues with my vendor with Against The Boards, so fingers crossed we are okay this time around.

Trapped In Love Cover Reveal

Hey, all! I quietly put Trapped In Love on preorder, so now we can do the cover reveal! This is my most favorite cover my designer Emily’s World of Design has EVER done. It’s amazing.

It is soooo pretty. Gemma is prefect, and it just fully fits for this book. I LOVE this book so so much. I can’t wait to bring it to you all, but I have to admit I’m sooo nervous.

Here’s the full wrap, paperbacks will be available closer to the deadline.

What’s Next?

A couple of people have asked what is next for me…like immediately after Against The Boards was released. Um… well I finally have some news.

I have TWO books on preorder now and I’m going to be doing TWO cover reveals In April.

The Chase, TJ’s book and book four of the Philadelphia Bulldogs Series is coming on October 18th! I know that is far off, and we might push it up. I’m expecting to get the first round of edits back soon, probably in early April. I know this book has been highly anticipated. I know I have one reader desperate for his book!

BUUTTT, I have a book coming BEFORE his.

The second book in the MacGregor Brothers Brewing Company Series is coming to you on July 19th! Trapped in Love is Gemma and Felix’s book. I’m about to send it to my dev editor, so I’m getting nervous about it TBH! But I can’t wait for you to read it.

I’ll be revealing both covers next month, so stay tuned for the reveals.



Against The Boards is now live!

It’s here! Against The Boards is finally here. This book has been a long time coming, so for all those who have been waiting for Benny and Rox’s story, I hope you enjoy it.

It’s one of my favorite books, but I do have to admit I’m so nervous for it to be out to the world. But I’ve worked incredibly hard on this book, so I’m proud of what I’ve done with it. It doesn’t make the nerves of release day any easier though.

BUT to celebrate the new release, I put book one, Take The Shot as FREE and Score Her Heart as $0.99. BUT only through March 6th, so make sure you grab them now before they go back to full price.



I hope you love Rox and Benny and enjoy reading their story. I love them so much, and they are so far my favorite couple (that I’ve published! I have others I may like even more!).

Against The Boards Excerpt #2

Against The Boards comes out in less than a week! EEEEK! I have to say I’m a little nervous, as I’ve only heard from a handful of readers about the book so far. But I’m also excited too, because I had to delay this book so many times, so it feels like a feat that it’s actually coming out now.

With that in mind, I’m giving you another sneak peek at it!


“You want to talk about it?” I asked carefully.

She groaned. “First, I hate when they order dinner for me. Second, he spent the whole date goading me for information on Tristan. He knew who I was when he bought me that drink. What a fucking fuckety fuck!” I tried not to laugh at her cursing, but she noticed and slapped my shoulder. “Don’t laugh about it!”

“I’m sorry. I’m not laughing at you, just your colorful language.”

She ran a hand down her throat, and my gaze dropped to her ample cleavage. God, this woman was a goddess. Was it wrong of me to fantasize about running my hands and my mouth all over her curvy body? 

I realized I was staring when she placed her hands on her hips and glared up at me. 

“We gonna talk about that kiss? What kind of person kisses a girl like that and then fucks off for a couple of days?” she seethed.

I exhaled. “I was trying to not get murdered. Sorry!”

She growled and muttered another insult that I couldn’t hear.

“Not that it’s any of your business, but I went to see my family,” I tried to explain.

She sighed and gave me an apologetic smile. “I’m sorry. I’m making this about me.”

My eyebrow shot up in surprise. “Holy shit. Mark this day. Roxanne Desjardins has apologized to me, Michael Bennett, for snapping at me for no reason!”

She gave me the finger. “Shut up! I’m just…” She trailed off and didn’t look me in the eye as she searched for the right word. “Frustrated.”

“Frustrated how?”

She gave me a pained look. “Horny.”


“Anyway, why did you kiss me that night? You hate me!”

I placed my hands against the kitchen island behind her, boxing her in and staring down at her. “We need to talk about you thinking I hate you.”

“You do!” she snarled.

I gritted my teeth. This woman and her constant need to argue was grating on my last nerve. As much as she infuriated me, I’d never said that I hated her. Sure she got under my skin, and she was combative as hell, but hate was a strong word. The same couldn’t be said for her, though; I thought she lived to hate me.

“I don’t hate you. You make me so goddamn frustrated, you infuriating woman.”

I’m infuriating? Are you for real?”

“You want to know why I kissed you?” I growled at her. 

“Yes! I wouldn’t have asked if I didn’t want to know. I swear, you’re the most insufferable man I’ve ever met!”

I leaned into her, closing her in against me so she couldn’t escape. She looked up at me with wild eyes that looked equal parts pissed off and horny. That was sure interesting to my lizard brain right about now.

“I kissed you that night because you were annoying me, and it shut you up.”

“Yeah? Is that what you want, to shut me up again?” 

“Is that the only way to get you to stop yelling at me? Do I need to shove my tongue or my dick in your mouth?”

“You don’t have the balls.”

“Fucking watch me,” I growled.

She cocked a dark eyebrow at me as if daring me. “Watch you do what?”

I grabbed her face in my hands and slanted my mouth against hers.


Against The Boards Excerpt #1

Hey, all! Can you believe it Against The Boards comes out in less than two weeks! Actually 12 days away! So I’m popping in with a little excerpt from the book. Enjoy!

You can preorder it here, paperbacks are also live for preorder now too:


“You never answered my question. Where’s a good area to move to?”

“Okay, here’s the plan. You stay in my room while I’m overseas, and we can look together when I get back, or Kat can help you.”

I raised an eyebrow. “Who’s Kat?”

He barked out a laugh. “The GM’s assistant. Also my goaltender’s mom, so she’s off-limits.”


He suddenly looked very solemn. “I’d never break the code.”

I rolled my eyes. Hockey boys and their codes; it all seemed rather archaic to me. I’d never been interested in hockey players, mostly because they got mad I could outshoot them. Sorry, my dudes! When you grew up with a Stanley Cup winner for a father, not playing hockey wasn’t an option. 

“Noah won’t mind me staying at your place?”

“No, because he already moved in with his girl.”

“He moved in with Dinah already?”

He nodded. “A bit soon, eh?” 

We shared a concerned look.

Tristan’s roommate Noah had been in love with their next-door neighbor for a while. She broke his heart when she broke up with him a couple of months ago. They seemed better now, but I was protective of Noah. He was like a second brother to me, and I didn’t want to see him hurt again. Noah was way too nice, and I was afraid people took advantage of his kindness.

“Wait, so you don’t have an open room I could use?”

Tristan abruptly cut the engine and got out of the car.

I followed him towards the elevator. “Well?”

“I have a new roommate,” he said. His grim expression told me I wouldn’t like whatever bomb he was about to drop on me. 

“Tristan, who moved into Noah’s room?” I asked.



“Yes, Benny.”

“Like…Michael Bennett?” I asked and prayed to the hockey gods he meant literally anyone else. 

Please tell me he had another friend who went by the name Benny. Please, anyone else but the six-foot-four left-winger who took one look at me and asked me if my tits were fake. There was no way in hell I was living with Benny while I searched for a place. Even if he was nice to look at with his impeccably groomed beard that looked amazing against his brown skin. 

Please hockey gods, be on my side this time!

“Do you know another Benny?” Tristan asked and gave me the signature Desjardins grin. 

“Oh, you have got to be fucking kidding me!” 

My twin laughed the whole elevator ride up to his floor. I didn’t understand why he thought this was so goddamn funny. This was my worst nightmare.



Book Signing Events Upcoming

Hi, all!

If you subscribe to my newsletter, you already know about this, but I have some exciting book signing events coming up!

First up in my homestate of PA, I’ll be in Pittsburgh for Authors in Steel City on April 8th and 9th. This will be my first ever book signing! I’m nervous but excited about it. Make sure you grab your tickets here.

And then this summer on July 16th, I’ll be at RomantiConn, in Connecticut. I’m excited about this one because a few of my authors friends will also be attending and I finally get to meet them in person! Grab your tickets HERE.

One thing I did for both of these events is create a preorder form. So if you are planning to attend and you want to assure you get signed copies of my books, you can submit an order HERE. I will invoice you via paypal a couple weeks before the event. Once you pay your invoice, I’ll set aside the books for you so they will be ready for you at the event.

I hope to see you there and to of course meet some new readers as well!

I have plans for another event in the fall, but we’re still firming up details, so stay tuned for more info on that one!



Sign up for an ARC of Against The Boards

It’s the new year, so I have some new stuff going on. I’m so glad readers have loved my latest release Accidentally In Love. I’m not sure when/if I’ll publish the next book in that series, but I do have another book in my Bulldogs hockey series! Against The Boards is releasing on March 1st, and it will be here before we know it!

Are you interested in reading an ARC? You can sign up for just the ARC and no other obligations here. If you’re already on my ARC team, you will already get this so no need to sign up again. And if you can’t remember, shoot me a message, and I can check for you. I’ll also be posting 20 ARCs on book sprout, so if you miss it, check out that too.

I am so excited to bring this book to you all, but also really nervous about this book for a lot of reasons. Only a couple more months until it’s in your hands!
