Good Girl Meets Bad Guy…

I’m excited to introduce the next installment in The Village Series, You Only Live Once

This new tale expands the Village universe beyond AGU’s campus and takes readers on a crazy journey of redemption and restoration.

I want to have fun writing. Don’t get me wrong, the process is grueling. BUT with The Village Series, I feel like I can break the rules and mix up genres–romance, suspense and inspirational. I get to show people LIKE ME and my family/friends. I share a 360 view of college life. I let go of preconceived notions of what/who is considered good/bad. So on the surface, my new book is a classic good girl/bad guy tale, but there’s so much more to their stories…

Transferring to Aurbor Grove University was a big mistake. Karma Juarez knows this for sure. Unbeknownst to her sister, their ‘girls night out’ to the grand opening of a new lounge is her personal farewell to the college. She can’t wait to get away, but a walk down the wrong alley at the wrong time draws her into the middle of a dangerous street feud that almost costs her life. Now, she can’t shake the traumatic night — or the man who saved her — from her mind and heart.

Ezekiel “Zeke” Oliver abandoned his religious upbringing for riches years ago. Then, a close encounter with death leaves him wondering: is redemption still possible? After a chance cell phone recording catapults him into a viral video sensation, Zeke attracts good and bad attention. While he’s set to capitalize on the moment and start a new chapter, enemies from his past plot to destroy everything he loves – his family, his woman, his life.

You Only Live Once is the third book in The Village Series.
