About the Book

This is not about wandering hearts. It’s not about desiring to cause trouble. This isn’t about insecurity, hate or revenge on a loving partner. This isn’t about a loveless marriage or a person with a screwed up moral compass.

Maybe you are confident that your own relationship is strong. Maybe you are each other’s world. Maybe you have what others are trying to find. Maybe you know in a heartbeat it can change…

A marriage is put to the test. Jordan is revealing her secrets. They tried this past summer with going through fertility treatment only for it to fail. Her husband Josh has taken a second job to support them. The long hours are starting to put a strain on the relationship and Jordan often finds herself alone. One day she meets Devon online. He is charming, fun and is also a writer. Jordan knows that she likes him but dismisses the thought at first…This is a romance.

Excerpt

Chapter 1
My Assumptions

Here we are you the reader and I the storyteller. Since you are reading this, my assumption is that you can see where I am coming from or that this story is like looking at a train wreck where you cannot turn away.

Well I promise you this that I have succeeded in gaining everything I wanted with keeping two lovers. One is a secret from the other. Devon gave me a fair chance in getting me pregnant without compromising our lives. I am over the morning sickness faze and I am no longer as tired as I found myself in the beginning. I plan to tell the family soon since I am now passed that delicate stage and I couldn’t be happier.

I always knew that Josh was in my corner rooting for me. I admit that he struggled with the fact that he couldn’t contribute in the way that a husband should to this pregnancy. It took some time and he was always there by my side attending the doctor appointments until finally it worked. He doesn’t know that I went to another for help. He has no knowledge of Devon, nobody does and I plan to keep it that way.

You already know my thoughts on the matter. You are probably wondering what has gone on in the last three months, let me fill you in.

Josh and I are doing great. Our relationship is on good solid ground. It took some work but I am happy to say that we are now enjoying our time that we have together. Josh is still working lots of overtime but in the time that we do have we make the effort not to fight and work on making the effort to do things together. We put our phones down and pay attention to one another. We play video games, watch movies, cook and clean. I have to admit that the sex has become amazing. We try different things, new positions and he has even started going down on me. It had been something that he had stopped doing for years. I love Josh and I know in my heart that he has fallen in love with me all over again.

In terms of my career, work is work, what can I say. The department that I work for is currently downsizing its staff, which means they have cut back on the temporary staff. I don’t need to worry as my job is secure. I am permanent but with the reduction in staff, the workload has increased significantly. Everyone that I work with is feeling the extra burden and office life has been a challenge. Colleagues, including myself have been unhappy and it is hard to stay positive when being dumped on with crap in every direction. I know that I need to keep my chin up for the months that I have left before I go on maturnity leave and I hope when after I return from the leave the atmosphere will be better. I have learned not to dwell on the negative and instead hope for the positive, which is easier said than done.

I still haven’t caught that break on my published book. It is getting steady viewings, downloads and purchases but I haven’t seen that upswing when a book takes off and launches an author into stardom. I am still hopeful that my time will come because I am steadily receiving good reviews from complete strangers, which always does bring a smile to my face when I read them. I believe that things come in time and I trust that good things will come.

Devon, my secret is back at his home in Texas doing great. He is one funny guy I tell yah. He wanted to know if I did get pregnant and you already know that I told him. Even though he is just a friend, he couldn’t be more thrilled and he is confident that it was his own that made it work. It’s nice to know that I have him in my corner and I am happy to have shared time with such an awesome man. I feel the same with it being his but I won’t know for sure until I see the baby because of that small chance that the donor sperm worked.

We are still the best of friends and talk pretty well every day and today is no different every time I have something that I am itching to share Devon is the first to know and today is no different.

Synopsis I
An unidentified object parked on the moon – and no one seems to know where it came from. Gustavo, a middle-aged computer programmer with a comfortable and grey life, decides to make a list of what he would need to survive a hypothetical attack. He becomes obsessed with the list, spends a fortune, robs a drugstore: his own family thinks he is going insane. However, after the attack, it’s the insane who are well prepared for a new era in society. First book of a trilogy.

Synopsis II

– A genre-busting book that includes adventure, thriller, dystopia or utopia and an exciting love story.

– A trilogy: part one happens in southwest Europe, in our time.

– The main character, Gustavo, does not get along well with his parents-in-law, and his wife does not like Gustavo’s friends.

– There’s an object parked on the Moon, but curiously, the unfolding of the story does not take place in New York, for instance.

Anwyn Rose is descended from a long line of powerful witches yet she can barely cast spells young witchlings have mastered. She has one functioning witch gift, the power of knowing, which she puts to good use as a Detective on Flint’s Preternatural Investigation Team.

It’s a new era in Vehicle City, supernaturals are running the town.

The P.I.T has their hands full with paranormal crimes. Top priority is a serial killer, who appears to be a vampire, draining young women in the city.

Anwyn is on the case with her sexy partner Detective Mike Malone. Complicating things is her relationship with Galen, a vampire who looks more guilty than innocent, although Anwyn trusts her instincts even if her power is on the fritz.
Mysterious spells, compromising situations, and a possible demon on the loose make it hard to focus on the case, but Anwyn has to make things right before the human police execute the wrong vampire.

Hex and the Single Witch contains magick, a little bit of mystery, a lot of supernatural mayhem, and a sexy love triangle that will leave you wanting more.

my-review

I am probably the odd one out in this BUT I was rooting for the human in the vampire/human/female witch love triangle. He had more oomph to him than the vampire. Galen was made out to be intense and broody, but he was down right annoying.

I enjoyed that Anwyn, the witch, remained an adult about her love life. Too many heroine’s tend to revert to that insecure state where they question whether their love interests like them, why they are feeling what they’re feeling and etc. I call that “stuck in my head” syndrome.
But to be honest, I found Anwyn a little boring. She seemed tough as nails but she didn’t spark much in me. Maybe because she was far too sheltered. I also felt that her expertise in the book was lacking. She relied on her friend a lot. I know that she had some issues coming into her powers, but being a witch isn’t just about powers. It’s about your knowledge and your connection to that knowledge. As a Spiritual Wiccan, that I know well.

However, damn that was one helluva interesting twist in the plot. I did enjoy that the action and excitement in this book wasn’t predictable. You were kept guessing until the end.

Editing was also a key factor in the rating. I know, as a independent author, it is tough to find people who will edit and beta read for you, but it is really important. Even if you end up sitting on your story for a while. Just a personal note. It can be really distracting to see errors and you itch to want to fix them but can’t. *Sad Face*.

Anyhow, I did enjoy this and I do recommend this for any True Blood fans. It’ll hit nice and close to home with this novel.

The world of corporate greed runs rampant after the government’s dissolution has left police, fire, and all other services once handled by the public sector in the hands of privatized businesses and wealthy investors.

With the class divide ever widening, debtor prisons for the lower and middle classes overflowing, disease ravaging the country, and resources running dry, the streets have become a battleground for those who would fight against the elite’s corrupt system, against a world spiraling into ruin, against the devastating impact of a society ruled by The Private Sector.

my-review

I received this eBook from the author in exchange for an honest review. 

Wow, this was such a terrifying read. Not in the sense that it had jump scares or the like, but in the impact that this society could easily become our future.

Just take a moment and imagine a society where greed and corruption run rampant. Where medical costs and illness will cost you everything you hold dear. Where public services like the police or fire department have become privatized and vie for your money. Imagine a world where education is privatized and what education is open to the public doesn’t guarantee you much of a future. And the careers of today are literally a dying art. Imagine a world where naturally conceived and born children are incredibly rare. That people would prefer to have a child that is completely genetically perfect.

If we continue on this path, I’m sure that will become our reality.

For me, the end of this novel was the hardest. One of the main characters, Dianne Irwin, suffers two of the most horrible experiences ever and it bothered me that she was just expected to move on. And she pretty much does.
I don’t want to ruin the end of the story, but it stuck with me. It was a reminder of the world as it was, no matter what happened.

Thrilling read for sure. I definitely recommend this.

For years, Jade C. Jamison tried really hard to write what she thought was more “literary” fiction, but she found herself compelled to write what you read by her today–sometimes gritty, raw, realistic stories and other times humorous, light tales–but most of the stories she writes revolve around relationships and characters finding their way through life. While she doesn’t confine herself to just one genre, nor is there a nice neat label for what she writes, most of her work could be called erotic romance. Her main writing passions include rock star romance, romantic comedy, and romantic suspense.
She lives in Colorado with her husband and four children.
