Make Me Stay

Caroline:

When someone says “Make me stay” in the most dramatic, love-sick kind of way, most people think it sounds desperate, weak, or needy. I, for one, think it sounds like all of the above! I’m not stupid, and I sure as heck am not desperate. In fact, I’m the complete opposite of weak. I’ve lived my live with a steel trap around my heart, and I don’t need anyone—especially a man. So how in the hell did a wannabe rock star get me to say those three words…make me stay?


Kane:

One-woman man? You’ve got to be joking. I was a rock god…in a bar…in a small town…eh, details. I was getting women like I was their gift from God. I was going to make it big. My band and I were going to bust out of Small Town, USA, and we were going to knock the panties off every woman in sight. So, when I caught some sexy groupie touching my baby…my beautiful guitar, did I want to test those waters? Hell, yes! But did I want to be a one-woman man? Hell, no! But after that, all I knew was that I wanted to make her stay. 








Michelle's Review
Who doesn't love a bad boy rock star that thinks he cant be tamed or " pussy wipped " ?? 

Kane is part of a boy band ONS  - One Night Stand - says it all really !! Kane and his boys play at a local pub in a small town but hoping to make it big and in the meantime they definitely lived up to their band name. 

Caroline fled from her father after loosing her mother, it was the only way she could deal with what had happened,,, run and forget, its a trait she kept to. After she had finished her internship with no offer of a job she decided to spend the summer reuniting with her father while waiting for a job offer to come up back in New York, she wasn't used to a small town and wasn't expecting much when she turned up to help her father run the pub he now owned.

Lets just say Caroline and Kane's meeting wasn't love at first sight ! Lust maybe but not love. Kane was a self assured cocky but hot guy who always got the girl he wanted,, they fell at his feet !! Caroline " now nicknamed Kitty" by Kane could keep up with his banter and gave as good as she got but god did he wind her up at every opportunity he could. 

Kitty's relationship with the whole band soon grew but she was determined to not get involved, she couldn't she wasn't staying forever and eventually she knew she would run like she always did, that way she never had to face the real world. Always the runner ,, never the chaser.....

I don't want say too much more and give away any spoilers however I will say that this book is full of banter between all the characters and has a few surprises along the way with some steamy hot scenes and very possessive alpha males, what more could you want ?  Get reading you will love it !




All about me in Five Questions or less

Question 1 – What makes you, you?

What makes me, me? Well, I was born and raised in Central Maryland. I now live with my wonderful husband and four, energetic children. My day to day consists of getting kids ready for school, answering e-mails, writing, editing, and making breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Writing has always been a passion of mine. My grandmother gave me my first journal when I was in the third grade. I wrote in it almost every day, and I still try to write in it as often as I can. Before I started my first novel and became a stay at home mom, I worked in daycare. I loved it! Never a dull moment when you have 15 kids running around!


Question 2- When you don’t have your ‘Mom hat’ or ‘Author hat’ on, what are your interests?

I love going to the movies, whether it be with my husband or friends. I get pretty jazzed about good movies. I love them all; romantic, suspense, action. I don’t do scary though, unless I’m at home snuggled on the couch next to my hubby with a blanket over my head.
Go figure, I love reading! I really like romantic novels, but I also dabble in Young Adult. Potter and Everdeen are some of my favorites, hell I’ll admit it, I even liked Twilight, before the movie.


Question 3 – Describe your writing set up?

When I write, I have to have music on. I have a playlist for each of my stories. Without music, I just can’t write. I also like to be in the dark, with only a small lamp and computer screen to light my way. I have a journal for each novel that I jot down future ideas in about the storyline, character descriptions, and words I want to incorporate. I’d be lost without my journals; I carry them around with me everywhere. You never know when an idea is going to pop in your head! A large glass of ice water is also a must have, unless it’s one of those days then a cup of coffee is on the menu. I’m sure all you Moms out there know what I’m talking about!


Question 4 – Boxers or Briefs for your hunky heroes?

Boxer-briefs! Best of both worlds? … I think so! Oh and they’re always black!


Question 5 – Who inspires you to write?

Who inspires me to write? Honestly, I write for the women like me who want to be able to picture themselves as the heroine. All too often, the leading lady is someone who’s unattainable for most. The tall, thin, long-legged, beauty or the petite, slender girl next door who happens to also be drop dead gorgeous. Those women are usually frail and sometimes, not much is going on upstairs. I try to write about, real, strong women who tell it like it is. For instance, we all know that most of us wear spanks when we go out to a club. Suck it in, stand up straight and don’t sit down, unless you’re behind a table. These are the things that constantly go through your head. I want my readers to be able to put themselves in my heroines place. What would you do if a really hot guy was dancing with you? Pray your rolls aren’t showing? Chin up to hide any chance of showing a double one? Arch your back to show off ‘assets’ you think are better than others? Maybe even move his hands just so he won’t feel that extra cushion?
Although I have written a few stories with a typical heroine and don’t get me wrong, I love them and they are ‘real’ in their own way, just not physically. Those stories were easy to write because they didn’t have body issues or insecurities, they didn’t have to worry about ‘sucking it in’ or ‘muffin tops’. Now, I wouldn’t call my heroines plus size, I call them real, real girls/women who love themselves, but are still aware that they aren’t that Victoria Secret model. I find it challenging and exciting to write about curvy women and all the little things that come along with it. It’s not easy and sometimes I think that it’d be easier to follow suit and write about idealistic women, but in a way, we all are and we all need that one heroine to look up to and I hope that my leading ladies, curvy or otherwise, fulfill that need for someone.

    Guess what? This is exactly what big companies are paying me for. They need to know what their customer needs and wants. So these companies pay $1,000,000's of dollars each month to the average person. In return, the average person, like me and you, participates in surveys and gives them their opinion.
