We’re finally only a week away from the release of The Hardest Fall, a friends-to-lovers romantic comedy (Contemporary Romance). I’m still not sure how I feel about it. I’m excited for sure, but I’m equally nervous about it, too. It’s been a long time since I’ve done this. I’m definitely ready to get back to it, but as you can imagine, there are some aspects of it that’s making me question myself. Will they remember me? I love this book like nothing else, but will they love it, too? Did I do a good job? Will I be able to pick up from where I left off? I know the last one isn’t likely to happen, but a girl can dream, right?
I’m nervous, yes, but just like I said, I love this book. I can’t wait for you to meet with Dylan and Zoe. Adam had always been my favorite character from my books, but Dylan… There is something about him that makes me fall for him so much harder. He feels more real to me somehow. Not that I don’t love my Adam or Jason…but Dylan…you’ll just have to meet him and see it for yourself.
I’m thinking about sharing a little excerpt here in a few days. Just a short one, a small taste of Dylan and ZOe. Make sure you check back in a few days. Until then, I’ll leave you with some of the countdown teasers I’ve been sharing on my social media.

I think I’m finally back. I’m saying ‘I think’ because I’m still having trouble believing it myself. It’s been such a long time. I’ve been through so many things since my last release, but I’m not going to spare another second to any of that. I have a new book coming out, I have a release date (April 18), I have a cover, I have a synopsis. And you know what, I even have a private Facebook group! If you’d like to join me so we can chat, and you can be the first to see everything related to my books, please come and join us, I’d love to see you there.
Okay, so back to the most important thing. Now that you’ve seen the cover, I think it’s time you read the synopsis too.
The first time you meet someone, you make eye contact. You smile, say hello. Should be simple, if you’re anyone but me. The first time I met Dylan Reed, I found myself making eye contact with a different part of his body. You see, I’m very good at being shy, not to mention extremely well-versed in rambling nonsense and, unfortunately, rather highly skilled at making a fool of myself in front of a guy I’m attracted to.
At the time, I knew nothing about him and thought none of what I said would matter since I’d never speak to him again. Turns out, I was very wrong. He was the star wide receiver of the football team, one of the few players expected to make it into the NFL, and I ended up seeing him all over campus.
I might have also propositioned him, run away from him, attacked him with a cooking utensil…and…uh, maybe I shouldn’t tell you all of it. It’s pretty normal stuff, things you’d expect…from me. Eventually, the time came when I couldn’t hide anymore—not that he’d have let me even if I tried.
Before now, he never knew I was secretly watching him. Now that we see each other every day, he knows when I have a hard time looking away. It doesn’t help that I’m not the most subtle person in the world either.
He smiles at me and tells me he finds me fascinating because of my quirks. I can’t even tell him that I think my heart beats differently whenever he’s around.
He thinks we’re going to be best friends. I think I have a big thing for him, and the more I get to know him, the more I don’t care that I’m not allowed to be his friend, let alone fall for him.
The thing is, that’s exactly what I’m doing—what we’re doing, I think.
Eeeep! What do you think? Do you like the synopsis? Are you excited to read a new book from me? Do you even remember me? I hope so. I can’t wait till you meet Dylan and Zoe on April 18.

Can you believe it? Can you freaking believe it?! My upcoming novel is almost done. Almost. I’m working on it, yes, but I’m way over the halfway line. And that’s big, so so big. If you’ve read my last two posts you know that I’ve been dealing with health issues which kept me from writing, but I’m almost back. Almost. And I missed you guys. SO damn much. I’m pretty excited can you tell? I’m sure you couldn’t!
I’m hoping to release it in April. Very early April. Maybe first week. If everything goes smoothly and I’m hoping very hard that it will, it’s going to happen in April. It has to because I’m pretty much done and over with this waiting game. Did I mention how much I missed you? I guess I did, but I missed you enough to mention it twice. And Dylan and Zoe? You have to meet them. I love her and I love him and I love them together. I want to tell you more, but I’m gonna keep my mouth shut and share more snippets in the upcoming weeks so make sure you’re keeping an eye on here. Okay…Just one last time. I missed you guys. I hope you’re still with me, and I hope we’ll meet again, properly, in April.

Here’s just a tiny little taste of what’s to come…
“You scared the shit out of me,” I rasped out and gently kissed her cheeks as hot water rained down on us. “Don’t you ever do that to me again. Don’t you ever put yourself in danger like that.” Because of the way I was holding on to her, she barely managed a nod. Breathing hard, I rested my forehead against hers, closed my eyes and listened to her quiet sobs. I just needed to hold her in my arms, breathe her in and calm myself down. Then I could be whoever and whatever she needed me to be.
With all my love,
I’m going to do my best to keep this short and sweet without getting into any bloody details, but please excuse me if it’s longer than necessary. I finally had the surgery on the 14th. The first date had to be rescheduled because I had an allergic reaction to the antibiotic they wanted to start me before the surgery. So yeah…they pushed it to the 14th. On the day of the surgery, they took me in at 8.45 AM and I opened my eyes around 5 PM. We were all expecting it to last around 1 hour or tops 2 since it wasn’t invasive and should’ve been what they called an “easy” procedure, but it took more than 6 hours.
Anyway, I lived to tell the tale as you can see 🙂 But, they can’t say for sure that the surgery was a success. Oh, guys, the words they choose to use, ah they are killing me here. Five days after the surgery, they took another CT scan because they couldn’t go in through my nose (with a handy little camera attached to something) to check things out. Because they do that–go in through your nose and all the way up there *shivers* (I’m sure you were very curious about that) After looking at the scan, they said there is nothing to be “afraid” of. That’s the worst word they could use, all I’m focusing on is “afraid”. I mean why the hell not say something along the lines…the surgery worked, everything looks good. You’ll have to be careful for a long time, but yeah it’s over now, be happy. Nope. No one is using those words. Also, call me ignorant, but I never knew you could push a tampon through your nose all the way up to your brain region (or something that looks like a long LONG cotton thingy. That was the absolute worst thing that happened after I woke up. I could hardly sit down as they pulled that thing oh-so-slowly. And I had no idea, absolutely no fucking idea that something was in there for 2 whole days. I thought it was just in my nose…
I guess that was more than what you wanted to know about the surgery. I’m doing better. Some days are pretty close to normal, but somedays like today some unexpected thing happens. Today, I was having trouble breathing. It felt like there wasn’t enough air–not through my nose, not through my mouth (almost similar to a panic attack, but not exactly) and I started panicking that something was wrong and it made it worse. But I’m better. Still a little difficult to breathe to be honest, I keep taking deep breaths. I still wanted to write this post for a few days now and I promised myself that I would do it today.
Now, the most important reason I wanted to write this post… Some of you commented on my blog post, some of you sent me emails, some of you sent Facebook messages, some of you did all that more than once, and I can’t tell you how happy each and every one of them made me. Some of you I’ve never heard from before and that makes it even more…mind-blowing? That you would care. They lifted me up when I needed them the most. I couldn’t reply (I’m going to start doing that slowly), but I read each and every one and it was the best thing. The absolute best. So thank you! Thank you for thinking of me. Thank you for all the best wishes. Thank you for all the positivity. Thank you for being so damn nice. Thank you for caring. And (my favorite) thank you for keeping me company when I needed it the most.
Also…before I go, I’m happy that the surgery and the probing part is over, but they’re not letting me go back home for another two weeks–to my dog (my beautiful baby) because they’re afraid of infection. So, I keep crying every now and then when I think about her because she’s been anxious and sick without me too and it kills me that I’m not there to take care of her. I know I should focus on myself and get better so I can be with her again, but it’s hard–staying away from her. We shared 10 years together, and we’ve been apart from each other maybe once or twice. It’s really hard. Anyway, I’m getting emotional for no damn reason again, so I should end this.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! For being who you are, for being there for me.
PS. Damn…this is nowhere near short. I’m not aloud to talk too much, so I guess it all came out here. I’m sorry for taking so much of your time. *face palm*
