I’ve planned well, studied hard, and dreamed of my future. It keeps me alive, ignoring the things from my painful past. The thing about life is that it can throw a curveball into your path that you can’t anticipate, and plan accordingly.
But life’s cruel. It offers both good and bad, and no time for the right reaction.
My junior year of college should be one of the best but my chance run-in with a loner freshman that harbors deep secrets soon pulls me into her mysterious world.
Unfortunately, her omissions of truth find me in a dangerous place.
Then, I meet Blake Angel. He is one of those curveballs of life…easy on the eyes, and every time we touch, sparks fly. But I can’t. I won’t. I have a game plan, a play-by-play for my future.
Before I realize it, everything has changed. The hidden secrets and lies only confuse me more. Worse, I may not be able to save myself, Samantha Sawyer, from those that now hunt me—and I have no idea why.

Recently the news has started reporting the near epidemic issue of mental health illness and the rise in suicide rates. It’s a problem which could be handled and controlled so much more effectively if there wasn’t a stigma associated with both suicidal thoughts and mental health problems.
They’re both treated like dirty secrets.
This is a subject which has touched everyone in some way. Some have been affected directly; maybe they thought about it, or possibly even tried to end everything because they thought there was no other way. Others are diagnosed with various illnesses: bipolar, depression, anxiety…None of these should be a cause for shame. These can’t be controlled. People should feel comfortable talking about it and seeking help, instead of feeling like they need to hide it…
…and to know hope is always there, it just needs to be allowed to enter.
**Inside these pages are stories of despair, tragedy and pain, but also filled with hope and love and a way to see the light outside of the darkness.**

Suicide, why is it so difficult to talk about, write about or even handle in a private forum?
Answers are still being searched for in the mental health communities of the hows and whys. Until then, we are trying to bring light to this issue. We want to assist with the truth, lies, prejudice, secrets, and misunderstanding of mental health.
Every 40 seconds someone commits suicide.
This makes it the 10th leading cause of death in America today. It is breaking news when it happens to the famous, but not enough exposure has come into the light to help everyday people. It still has a stigma and many experience shame in their issues.
Letting Hope Enter is a collection of stories about the tragedy, pain and even despair of suicide. Also, it is an attempt to bring hope and awareness to this illness without the need to hide or consider it some dirty little secret.
** All proceeds from the sales will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. **

J.D. Hawkins dabbles in the world of corporate BS meets the façade of the hipster culture. He greets his audience with the return of Wyatt from his lavish life of excess in New York and blends him into the hipster culture of the Los Angeles scene. Wyatt isn’t naïve to the ways of Southern California as this is a return of the king vibe within his family and close friends setting.
Hawkins brings to life the trope of familiarity sometimes blinds what has been in front of you the whole time. Wyatt recognizes his fate when he begins to work side by side with Melina, the quiet often overlooked family friend. Hawkins has a knack for bringing to life the underdog and allowing them to bloom while taming the alpha. In Temptation, the hint of reformed alphas and their leading ladies make a welcome appearance. The brilliant weave of old characters into the new future of Wyatt and Melina’s lives is well done. Through dynamic characterization, Hawkins also provides a beautiful growth mindset, allowing his characters to move seamlessly through change, rebuilding, and spreading their wings to see the future through a new lens. Temptation is well worth the click!

“J.D. Hawkins’ Temptation is a swoon-worthy friends-to-lovers story that is emotionally satisfying, heartwarmingly romantic and fan-yourself-worthy hot.” Mary Dube at USA Today’s HEA
✔️One Large Bed
I’m used to taking what I want, being the best at what I do. During the day, I make big bucks as New York’s premier consultant. At night, I can get any girl I lay my eyes on. I thought this life was what I wanted: working hard and playing harder–with penthouse apartments, luxury cars and bottle service every weekend. After six years in the city, I know I’ve been living like a monster for too long. I need to get my act together. I need to find something real. I need to come home.
LA means family and a fresh start. My parents and my friends who are close enough to be siblings.
Melina is nerdy smart, with a challenging sense of humor and legs for miles. It’s so hard to describe her…enigmatically beautiful. I’m sure there’s a word for it in French. But I know there’s a naughty girl hiding behind that shy smile that I’m dying to drag out.
There was always something between us. I never forgot her laugh, never could get her off my mind. Nobody ever seemed to notice how my body would react when I was near Melina, how much more focused I became—maybe not even Melina herself. But this time it’s different.
The more time we spend together, the more I wonder if there was something there all along. After so long in the fast lane, I don’t know if I can handle settling down. But seeing Melina’s passion, I’m tempted beyond belief.
I have to admit it: this temptation is impossible to resist.
I’ve been holding this one in for a few months, but I have a little-known twist on a lesser known legend releasing in an anthology October 23, 2018. We’d love for y’all to sign up for the cover reveal and share in the delight and sometimes horror of our words!
When Zane Michaelson first asked me to take a look at the cover for Angel of Mine, I examined each detail with the same literary skills as I do the written word. This cover speaks of good and evil, Heaven and Hell, protection and grief, ethereal entities, and the darkness nobody escapes in life. This all transcends and morphs into the world of Gabriella and Angelo.
Michaelson creates their world through the dynamic characterization of Gabriella and Angelo in a timeless stream of events which parallel multiple ideologies and turns traditional into a thought-provoking tale. He masterfully entwines the deadly sins and weaves the virtues through his tactful prose. Angel of Mine is a work of art from the outside cover to the sheets which lie between. The labor of dried ink and depth of thought from this world to beyond is evident in this incredible journey taken by both Gabriella and Angelo. Angel of Mine is a must read!

One simple word: B-R-I-L-L-I-A-N-T with Mr. Laurent taking his place among Shen’s Alphaholes! Jude may have taken first place among the female sassholes who can dish it out and then some. L.J. Shen writes the tango between Celian and Jude with such craft and eloquence the reader pulsates with each step and drowns as the dance sequences move breathlessly throughout the tale. Kudos to Shen with another fabulous anti-hero who you can’t help falling in love with as the heroine snaps him into shape.

From bestselling author L.J. Shen, comes a new standalone, enemies-to-lovers romance.
Heir to a media empire.
…And my new boss.
I could have impressed him, if not for last month’s unforgettable one-night stand.
I left it with more than orgasms and a pleasant memory–namely, his wallet.
Now he’s staring me down like I’m the dirt under his Italian loafers, and I’m supposed to take it.
But the thing about being Judith “Jude” Humphry is I have nothing to lose.
Heir to a stack of medical bills and a tattered couch.
When he looks at me from across the room, I see the glint in his eyes, and that makes us rivals.
He knows it.
So do I.
Every day in the newsroom is a battle.
Every night in his bed, war.
But it’s my heart at stake, and I fear I’ll be raising the white flag.
