synopsis

He is a thief.

She is his victim.

Lance King, known as Blue, is the charming, local surfer bad boy everyone falls for. This comes in handy since he enjoys taking advantage of privileged college kids as they throw money around wherever they go. What turns out to be a typical spring break quickly changes when he meets the one tourist who exceeds his expectations.

Phoebe McCormick is on her way to having the time of her life. With Panama City Beach in her sights, and her two best friends by her side, the possibilities are endless, or so she thinks. What she isn’t expecting is Blue, the local surfer to nearly ruin her long anticipated spring break. Her carefree attitude and his charismatic personality is the perfect combination for a successful friendship, but their relationship turns out to be anything but. Once the fantasy world of spring break is over and life resumes in Pennsylvania, a secret she thought she’d be able to keep hidden emerges, making it difficult to ignore.

He steals her money, but she will steal something far more valuable from him — a memento that will forever change his life.

She is a thief.

He is her victim.

**This is a standalone**

stalk the author

Jill Patten was born a Yankee, but raised a southerner. She lives in the small town of Mayberry, North Carolina which was made famous by a popular TV show back in the sixties. (Maybe there will one day be a statue of her at the end of Main Street. Ha! A girl can dream, right?)

Jill has always loved to read, even during reading labs in middle school for reading comprehension. Judy Blume was her first author she hero-worshipped, maturing to revere the works of Stephen King. With all the fantastic authors today, she simply cannot choose a favorite. Her taste is very eclectic and she loves almost all genres. When she’s not captivated by her fictional characters, she spends time with her sweet husband and two beautiful children.

Music is her muse. Jill also loves elephants, sarcasm, and anything made with sugar, especially sweet tea. She enjoys all things rude and crude and laughs at stuff she probably shouldn’t. She has been accused of being bossy a time or two, but doesn’t really see it herself.

All in all, Jill is just a small town girl in this great big world trying to enable your book addiction.

Oh, and if you read her book, please leave her a review – good or bad, she’ll love you forever.

Elena’s Musings: Series and Stand Alones…

When authors write novels, they can decide between two options: create a series or leave the stories as stand alones. As a reader, I enjoy both. I have to say that the majority of my favorite stories are series, for example The Gabriel Series by Sylvain Reynard, the Fifty Shades trilogy by E. L. James, The Remembrance Trilogy by Kahlen Aymes, The Sempre Series by JM Darhower,The Thoughtless Series by S.C. Stephens, and these are just a few — there are many, many more. What I love about reading a series is that I don’t have to let go of the characters after just one book. I’m the kind of reader who gets really invested in the stories I read, and it almost emotionally hurts me when I have to say goodbye to my beloved characters. It’s like seeing off at the airport a person you love, knowing you won’t see them again. OK, this is a bit dramatic, I admit, but you get the idea. With a series however? I know for certain that the story doesn’t end in one book. I know that there will be at least two other instalments (and sometimes more) where the characters will keep me company, will make me laugh and cry, will make my heart beat faster, will make me dream…Bliss, right? 😉
