eBook Review Copies for The Crush Are Now Available!

What’s up, Arrowheads! As you may know, the second book in my Contemporary Christian YA Romance trilogy (The Ballad of Emery Brooks) is set to release this fall. In preparation for the release, I am opening up reviewer spots for book one, The Crush, TODAY!

What’s The Crush about? Here’s the blurb!

Never settle for anything less.

A combination hopeless romantic and old soul trapped in a teenager’s body, closet musician Emery Brooks wonders if she’ll ever find a love as timeless as her grandparents’. Fear of judgment and social alienation due to her older brother’s past mistakes render her incapable of writing a love song. Still, Emery holds fast to the ideals her Grandma Adeline instilled in her from a young age, vowing to allow God to handwrite her love story, to never settle for anything less.

That is, until love cynic Sawyer Alston enters her world. Broken by the wrath of his parents’ failed marriage, Sawyer has been uprooted from everything he’s ever known and now sees love as a void of empty promises. When Emery and Sawyer meet due to their mothers’ rekindled friendship, Emery soon realizes she’s in over her head.

For, despite her resistance, her first crush, her first glimpse at love, involves a boy who doesn’t believe in love at all.

A tale of love and loss reminiscent of old-fashioned values with a bit of sass and music mixed in, The Crush is perfect for fans of A Walk to Remember and This Lullaby.

Trigger warnings:

Suicidal thoughts | Attempted suicide (described afterward, not shown) | Bullying within the church | Stage fright | Death | Rough divorce/family issues


Contains mild language (between PG to PG-13), including: hussy, crap, pissed, heck, dang. No words stronger than those are included.

As an author and blogger, my goal is to teach writers that there is a way to write realistic, thought-provoking, redemptive Christian fiction that honors God while not sugarcoating the realities of the world.
