We spent a lifetime chasing firefly dreams

Jaxson and I devised a life list when we were kids in Holmes Chapel. Just a few things on that list:

*Climb the Eiffel Tower.

*Visit every zoo in the world.

*Eat peanut butter every day.

But all the promises he made dissolved into dust, so when he comes around years later wanting to go live out our list, I want no part of it…or him. The universe seems to agree with me because everything we try is a disaster.

The heart though—it’s a tricky beast; I’m just not sure mine is strong enough to survive Jaxson one more time.

Chapter 1

If you could crawl out of the pages and help me manage not to embarrass myself this weekend, I would greatly appreciate it.

Undertow is Live!


by Alessandra Torre

Cover Designer: Sommer Stein / Perfect Pear Creative Covers


In some ways, I was so ordinary. Waking up in bed with my Paul, my surfer boyfriend, our life filled with sandy toes and tan lines. I stocked books during the day and danced with him to Bob Marley at night.

In other ways, I was unordinary. I’d dust off the sand and step into Stewart’s limousine. Zip up my evening gown and slide into my other life. Champagne and maid service. Orgasms and my businessman.

My life was a tide, pulling me back and forth between the two men. Soothing. Peaceful.

Then the undertow came, pulling my lives together, my men colliding, my breath shortening, arms flaying against the current, my heart breaking in its strength.

I should have known it would never work out.

Badass Book Review: With This Lie by Kat Savage


“I just didn’t see you coming…”
There was so much I didn’t see coming while reading With This Lie. I was initially giving this book the side eye because of the premise (“she strictly dates married men”) but Kat Savage hit it out of the park with her sophomore novel. There were twists and surprises around every corner combined with a sweet and steamy romance that did not leave me hating the main characters for their decisions. Instead, I strongly identified with them and their past heartbreaks and betrayals. Kat wrote characters that were truly products of what life had thrown at them and I think we can all relate to that on some level.
“I get the impression I’m a little more of a free spirit than he wants. He needs someone compliant, someone submissive. He needs someone who doesn’t take up too much space and I make it my prerogative to take up a shit ton of space in any situation.”
I couldn’t have described myself any better!
