Raphael Cruz doesn’t do it. He just doesn’t. Cruz doesn’t fall in love. He’s a “get in and get out” kind of guy. Ladies love him and fall all over him for his swoon worthy good looks and overwhelming sex appeal. He knows how to talk to them and tells them exactly what they want to hear. When he’s done making them scream his name, he shows them straight to the door. The meaning of the word love doesn’t exist in his world. But that could all change with a wink of a girl’s eye… And one hot-as-hell romp in a bar bathroom.
Harlow Hannum is your typical girl-next-door. She has the brains, the beauty, and the money. What she doesn’t have is the luxury of being someone’s first choice in the game of love. She always comes in a distant second place, leaving her guarded with her feelings. Lies, betrayal, and secrets of her past follow her wherever she goes, no matter how hard she tries to hide them. That is until she’s reunited with the one guy who can ignite the spark in her heart that’s been extinguished for so long.
With sunny days, heated nights, and love lingering in the air in the beach town of Sandy Cove anything can happen. Especially when fate steps in for Harlow and Cruz. Will their blossoming friendship turn into unexpected love or will the collision of their opposing worlds be the end of what could have been?
About M.R. Joseph
I’m a book nerd, turned writer who loves all things Happily Ever After mixed with a bit of suspense, drama, and the occasional cliffhanger. My Kindle is glued to my hands most of the time, but I still love the look and feel of a paperback book. My love of books has brought me on my writing journey. I began writing my first book in July 2012 and since that time I have created 2 series. The first series ‘The Reunion Series’ debuted in November 2012 and two books followed, those being stand alone novels. My new series ‘The Shore Series’ released in March 2014. The first book is entitled ‘Giving In’. I’m still an avid reader and huge Indie Author supporter!
A Note From M.R. Joseph
I wanted to ﬁll you in on the reason for the subtitle change for my latest work GIVING
IN. This past Friday I was contacted by CreateSpace (and later in the day by Amazon)
that another author had reached out to them about a conﬂict regarding similarity in the
subtitle of our books. The similarity of the subtitles was not done purposely and was
conceived without knowledge of the other series (I thought I had accurately created a
completely unique subtitle name). I decided the best course of action was to
immediately have my artist make an appropriate book cover revision with the new
subtitle. We contacted the other author and let her know it would be handled
immediately. She was appreciative of our quick response.
It was a stressful couple of days to see my latest labor of love being temporarily
unavailable for potential new readers for almost two days. That being said, I am proud
to release (again) the Amazon Best Selling Novel, GIVING IN:The Shore Series, Book
1. At the time of writing this, the book link subtitle has been corrected, but for some
reason the book cover image (with the new subtitle) has not been updated by
Amazon.com. I was assured this would be corrected on their end by early this week.
I appreciate the kinds words of encouragement from my readers. Without all of you,
none of this would not be possible. I look forward to having Book 2 ready for you in
Written with love,
