It's cover reveal day!

SECOND DOWN DARLING is an angsty, forbidden romance that features a criminally sexy wide receiver, who’s a single dad (!!!), and his tortured best friend, who’s his ex's little sister. It’s angsty and sweet and super spicy. Jake and Charlotte had me deep in my feels as I wrote this, and I can’t wait to get it into your hands! Check out the blurb below.

ALSO, Second Down Darling is going straight into KINDLE UNLIMITED on August 7 and will only be available for pre-order on non-Amazon vendors, so be sure to reserve your copy asap!


Jake’s my best friend and first love. There’s just one problem—he belongs to my sister.

I’ve been crushing on Jake for years, but never had the guts to tell him. One drunken night with my sister and two pink lines later, and he’s lost to me forever.

She doesn’t care that I met Jake Ramirez first. That he and I were best friends first. That I fell in love with him first. Because what my sister wants, my sister gets.

When she video-calls me and Jake accidentally walks by in the buff, something in me snaps.

Transferring to a different college might seem like a copout, but I have to get away from Jake and my sister before I say or do something I’ll regret. In an act of desperation, I ghost my old life.

For the next two years, everything is great—until I come face-to-face with Jake and his son, who my sister abandoned.

Jake’s the new wide receiver at my school, and he wants nothing to do with me, which is fine because I plan to keep my distance. Except we’re thrown together in the most dire circumstances that bring back all those old feelings.

They say everyone deserves a second chance, but my heart can’t handle breaking one more time.
