In this New Adult / College, Coming of Age story Tessa Ross tries to fight her attraction to bad boy Lucas Links. He is hot, arrogant, and has a sexual past that most boys his age could only dream of, (If they even knew they could dream of such things). Lucas, the star quarterback seems to have it all, super star athletic abilities, expensive clothes, cars, and women who literally stop just to watch him walk by. On the outside he appears to have it all. Tessa is a young woman who lives her life always doing what is right to make everyone else happy. She tries desperately to hold herself accountable to the demanding expectations of her family and everyone around her. Is Tessa as innocent as she appears? Is Lucas just a spoiled young man who seems to have what every male, and female wants? If you Love an emotional story that is full of spicy hot goodness. If you Love to follow a story from beginning until the bitter sweet end. If you are often left wondering what happened next... get your tissues and lip balm ready you are in for the read of your life. As we all know, you should never judge a book by it's cover.
I am a very new self published writer. I will tell you I have always had a very vivid imagination. Starting at age 3 (as it states in my Baby Book). Sigma was my very first love (imaginary boyfriend). He lived about fifteen miles from my childhood home, (a farm). I took him chicken noodle soup every night on one of our families snowmobiles, (Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring). Apparently he was very ill and "Thank God" I was able to take care of him. Next was my very first self publishing gig. At eight my cousins and I (and yes I was the president) wrote a newsletter and sold it to our family members. Years later I decided to put it back into print to entertain my cousin as she was on an aircraft carrier on 9/11 (Kick ass cousin BTW) and very far away from home during a very scary time for our country, (protecting our butts). Fast forward to 2012. I read 50 shades and thought, I can do that, (meaning writing). I have two complete series The Love Series, and Wrapped. I have two new series Burning Souls and Men of Steel. Ten books in 13 months. CrAzY and wonderful. I love love! ( I would love to reference Pinks new song here, however I am not sure if that would cause copyright issues.)I also tend to enjoy watching people grow and change with self realization and moments of clarity that just sneak up behind you and smack you in the head. I love people and have always been able to see both sides of a story. Each person that comes into our life leaves us with something it is what we choose to do with it that helps us grow. I live in central New York in the middle of nowhere and am surrounded by family and friend most the time. I run a small business out of my home and spend time reading and doing the typical Mommy things. Our house is full of pets and friends and noise ninety percent of the time, and I would have it no other way. I love people,music, laughter, hugs, and books.

Blue Love by M.J. Fields
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book is a typical high school drama with a lot of on-and-off relationship theatrics.
Love and hate, going as an inseparable duo for most of the time is what defines this story.
Tessa is a normal, rather shy and insecure high school attendee. She's a field hockey player and has lots of friends. We get to know them all from different POVs. In addition she had great family, at least until her parents decided to take a break from each other, splitting the siblings. Is it her mother's fault? Or should we blame both of the parents for ensuing, rather drastic change in Tessa's behaviour including late nights flowing with alcohol?
Lucas in a new guy in school with a reputation of a player and long list of conquests. He set his sights on Tessa and she reluctantly jumped in his arms. He's full of himself but tries to change his outlook on relationship with a little encouragement from Tessa.
"What happens after Tessa is love. You told me that and I know it will be true with you. I love you, I want you forever, and I don’t want to share you with anyone. I want to make you smile for the rest of our lives, love is what happens, just a deeper version of what we have now”
“You know Tessa I am scared too,” he admitted, “I have been with lots of girls, even thought I was in love once. But nothing like what I have with you, I have never felt this way, ever about anyone, not even my parents Tessa. You want what’s best for me"
However how it unwinds is a long story and it's going to be continued throughout the series.
All I can say is not everything is what it seems to be and some things don't change.
Taking responsibility for your actions is an act of growing up after all...
"Lucas knew that this man cared for her, but it didn’t make this any easier. He broke her, she told him so, and now Toby was going to fix her. Because I don’t know how, he thought."
