WHAT IF Release/Giveaway!

So, here we are, eight months after IF ONLY, my debut novel, released in late March. This whole authoring thing still feels so new–not the writing part of it but the putting-the-book-out-there part of it, giving it to readers and letting go of ownership because that’s what this is all about. A book that for so long was just my little creation is now yours, and that’s pretty freaking amazing. I’m so grateful that I get to do what I do. And even though I’ve done this once before, it feels like the first time all over again–lots of feels.  So, in keeping with what I hope will become release day tradition, here are all those feels in the best way I know how to express them–through gifs.

I am beyond excited for WHAT IF to be out there. All I want to do is this.

WHAT IF has been getting so much love in early reviews, and I wish I could tackle hug you all to say thank you!

And then there are those of you who, like me, fell in love with Griffin in IF ONLY and have waited patiently for his story. This is the story of my heart, and it’s hard to articulate how happy I am to finally share it with you.

Am I scared? Holy hella yes. I made this thing, and now this thing is not just mine. It’s yours. So I might be a little…

But really, I can’t say thank you enough. All the fear, excitement, nervous and happy dancing–it’s all worth it because I get to share my words with you. Thank you for reading.

Let’s celebrate!


Sometimes it takes letting go of the past to find out who you want to be.

During his semester abroad, Griffin Reed almost gave his heart to a WhatIf_Cover_Finalgirl who loved someone else. Lesson learned. Now he’s home, where following in his father’s footsteps may not be what he wants, but it’s what his parents expect. It might be taking the easy road, but he doesn’t see a way out.

Something that could have killed Maggie Kendall took away the person she used to be instead. Her condition makes her dependent on sticky notes, photos, and medication just to get through each day. The last thing she needs is a distraction—or someone new to disappoint.

What they refuse to see is they are perfect for each other. Maggie makes Griffin want to be a better man, and he makes her believe a future is possible. But these two have to find a way to share the secrets ripping them apart, if they’re ever going to have a chance at happiness.

New Adult Contemporary Romance

We weren’t a relationship, we were a ticking time bomb…  

Maggie Carpenter walked away from the hottest encounter of her life when she left the seductive glitz of England for summer break in her South Carolina hometown. Now that she’s returned to the International School in London—and sexy, privileged Samir Khouri is once again close enough to touch—she can’t help but remember the attraction, the drama … the heartbreak.

She can’t help but want him even more.

Samir can’t afford to fall for someone so far removed from his world, not when his time in London is running out. It’s his senior year—his last chance at freedom before he returns home to Lebanon. There, he’ll be expected to follow in his father’s footsteps—not follow his heart to Maggie. But when a scorching secret hookup becomes a temptation neither can resist, they’ll both have to fight to survive the consequences … and find a future together.

Don’t miss this explosive sequel to I See London, and the riveting conclusion to Maggie and Samir’s story. This is a New Adult romance recommended for readers 17 and up.

About If Only:

Sometimes it takes crossing an ocean to figure out where you belong.

It’s been two years since twenty-year-old Jordan had a boyfriend—which means it’s been forever since she, well, you know. But now she’s off to spend her junior year in Aberdeen, Scotland, the perfect place to stop waiting for Mr. Right and just enjoy Mr.

Sexy, sweet (and possible player) Griffin may be her perfect, no-strings-attached match. He’s fun, gorgeous, and makes her laugh. So why can’t she stop thinking about Noah who, minutes after being trapped together outside the train’s loo, kisses

Jordan like she’s never been kissed before? Never mind his impossible blue eyes, his weathered, annotated copy of The Great Gatsby (total English-major porn)…oh, and his girlfriend.

Jordan knows everything this year has an expiration date. Aberdeen is supposed to be about fun rather than waiting for life to happen. But E. M. Forster, Shakespeare, and mistletoe on Valentine’s Day make her reconsider what love is and how far she’s willing to go for the right guy.
