blurb
Imogen Gorecki has a problem—her twin sister just got engaged, and guess who’s the best man? That’s right, her scum-of-an-ex-boyfriend whom she caught cheating with a bottle-blonde, with fake breasts and a stripper’s flexibility. There’s a disturbing possibility her eyes will never recover.
Gen needs a date for the engagement party, but finding Mr. Perfect in a time crunch is proving impossible. Just when she’s about to give up, she face-plants into the crotch of the sexiest guy she’s ever met.
Matt Sesnick is everything Gen wants in a man —except he’s not interested in a relationship. Can she convince Matt to take another shot at love, or will Gen’s pregnant, hormonal older sister, her bridezilla twin, and all of her past Mr. Wrongs get in the way of their happily-ever-after?

excerpt
“You really should change that light bulb,” Matt said, glancing around us.
“I know.” I pushed aside my wallet to dig to the bottom of my oversized purse. “I kind of take for granted that this is supposed to be a safe neighborhood.”
“Until an alien abducts you off your poorly lit porch.”
“Very funny.” I glanced up from my purse with a smile. “But really, it’s late. You could have been home by now.”
“Gen, I’m glad to walk you to your door. I would have worried about you if I hadn’t.”
I considered him as we stood there on my porch, the light flickering above us. I didn’t want him to leave, but I didn’t know how to ask him to stay. Maybe I could ask him in for a drink, though I’d already had enough.
But I have those cupcakes…
Yeah. I could offer him cupcakes. They weren’t his favorite, chocolate with sprinkles, but yellow cake with milk chocolate frosting had to be a close second, right? Hadn’t he said a cupcake will fix everything?
“I’m really glad we went out tonight.” His voice made me jump and I dropped the keys. We both bent to pick them up at the same time and bumped foreheads.
“Sorry,” he said.
“It’s okay, I’m fine.” I clasped my forehead and laughed. Probably, I sounded hysterical. Like a rabid hyena. I couldn’t even look him in the eye when I took the keys from him. “Thanks for inviting me. I had a lot of fun tonight.”
“Me too,” he said.
I put the key into the lock, turning it slowly as I struggled with what to do about him and my out of control libido. Unlocking my door hadn’t given me enough time to figure things out, though, so I tried to prolong sliding the patio door open. That didn’t take long either, and I hesitated in the doorway, still unsure. I opened my mouth to ask him in, but nothing came out. So I stepped backward through the doorway, my gaze glued to his. After a moment, he followed me inside, part of his face lost in shadows.
Time stood still. My tongue darted out to lick my lips, and I lifted up onto my toes as he lowered his head to meet me halfway. The smell of his cologne surrounded me and my eyes drifted shut. He grasped me loosely around my back, pulling me close, sending shivers coursing through my body. His breath caressed my skin, his lips just a whisper away from mine, and my lips parted…

blurb
Once upon a time…
Bridal boutique owner, Alexis Gorecki, used to believe in happily-ever-afters—until prince charming turned into a toad.
Months after being blindsided by her own horrific wedding scandal, Lexie is desperately trying to keep her boutique afloat in the wake of all the bad publicity. Waging war against her evil almost-in-laws—the people who will stop at nothing to ruin her reputation—sounded much better in her head. Lexie's strawberries and cream personality really isn’t cut out for taser guns and blackmail.
To complicate matters, Lexie's first love is back in town with his sexy green eyes and out-of-control abs. He already broke her heart once before, the beast. Leo Moss has always been her weakness and he's made it perfectly clear what he wants. Can he convince Lexie she's not done with love just yet?

excerpt
“Damn it, Lex, you keep pushing me away and it’s pissing me off.” He ran his hands through his hair. “I’m not going to fight over you with some guy who’s already gone.”
“Me pushing you away has nothing to do with Jeremy,” I said and crossed my arms. What I didn’t say was that it had everything to do with Leo, with our past, with me not wanting to get my heart broken again. Why couldn’t he understand that? Why couldn’t he read my mind and know all the questions I had about why he’d broken up with me the way he had, and why he was suddenly here, again, in my life, torturing me with feelings I didn’t want to have. Feelings that scared the hell out of me?
His face lowered, and suddenly his lips were near my ear lobe. I sucked in a breath. “Did he make you feel like this?” he whispered, and then his lips pressed softly against the sensitive skin of my neck. “Or this?” His lips captured my earlobe, a flicker of wet heat, and then it was gone, replaced by a draft of cold air seeping through the crack under the door. “Or this.”
His lips captured mine and stars exploded behind my closed eyes. Everything was warm, my entire body weightless and fuzzy. The kiss was slow; the heat of it felt all the way down to my toes. His tongue slid against mine in a silken kiss of passion that erupted inside of me.

Did you always wanted to be a writer? If not what did you want to be?

Yes, I always wanted to be a writer. I was a serious bookworm before the third grade, and I wrote my first story in the third grade, a murder mystery. Whoa, right? haha! It was about a robbery gone wrong where my teacher, Mrs. Jones, was attacked. She loved it and read it to the class. I was thrilled.

When did you first consider yourself a “writer”?

In the third grade… ;) ha! After that, I wrote all the time. I wrote stories, poetry, and then I by the time I was in fifth grade I wrote my first YA contemporary novella.

How long did it take to get your first book published?

Forever. I mean, I wrote many books. But, I didn’t try to publish one  until 5 years ago. It took me 2 years to query agents and publishers before I got a contract. I almost gave up and then I got two contract offers within one week. I was so excited! Since then, it’s been a whirlwind of opportunity.

Do you do another job except for writing and can you tell us more about it?

Yes, I am a legal assistant part time, and I also do transcription part time. So I work fulltime-plus, and I write on the side.

What is the name of your latest book, and if you had to summarize it in less than 20 words what would you say?

Done With Love is my newest book. It’s a Romantic Comedy about friendship, family and falling in love, even when you’re not sure you believe in the fairy tale anymore.

Who is your publisher? Or do you self-publish?

I am published with The Wild Rose Press, and I am also indie.

How long does it usually take you to write a book, from the original idea to finishing writing it?

Depends! But, it only takes me about a month to two months max to write the book. It’s all the other stuff that prolongs the process, like beta reads, revisions, content edits, revisions, etc.

What can we expect from you in the future?  ie More books of the same genre? Books of a different genre?

I’ll be starting a small town contemporary series soon, as well as a paranormal series that might be either upper YA or adult. I haven’t decided how graphic it’s going to be, but it can go either way at this point. My characters have a tendency to take their clothes off, and even when I tell them to behave, it still happens!

What genre would you place your books into?

For what I have out now, I’d say humorous contemporary romance or romantic comedy meant for adult audiences. I do not write erotica though.

What made you decide to write that genre of book?

I love to laugh. I prefer to read humor and smile than to cry and be depressed. Just a personal preference :)

Do you have a favorite character from your books? And why are they your favorite?

My favorite character is Roxanna from my What’s Love??? series. She’s hysterical and outspoken and dramatic.

How long have you been writing?, and who or what inspired you to write?

It’s hard to pinpoint, but as I said above, I’ve been writing full stories since the third grade.

Do you have a certain routine you have for writing? ie You listen to music, sit in a certain chair?

I write with my headphones on whether I’m listening to music or not. Makes me feel like I’m in my own little world.

Do you read all the reviews of your book/books?

If it’s during a blog tour, yes. I appreciate so much blogs taking the time to spotlight me.  But I stopped trolling the retail sites for reviews because it’s easy to get caught up in who didn’t like the book over who did like it. I’m just concentrating on writing stories I’d love to read, and it’s makes the process much healthier for me.

Do you choose a title first, or write the book then choose the title?

I’ve done it both ways. My first book, Fender Bender Blues, I came up with the title and then wrote the book. My second book, I wrote it and then came up with the title. The third one, I knew the title before I started writing it :)

How do you come up with characters names and place names in your books?

Character names gives me heartburn. haha! I come up with the places easily--I only write what I know, and I only know a few places. I don’t travel much now that we have a family.

Are character names and place names decided after their creation? Or do you pick a character/place name and then invent them?

I pick the character name usually, and then invent the character. But there’s been times where I realized the name doesn’t fit and change it.

Do you decide on character traits (ie shy, quiet, tomboy girl) before writing the whole book or as you go along?

Oh no, I get to know the character BEFORE I write her story.

Are there any hidden messages or morals contained in your books? (Morals as in like Aesops Fables type of "The moral of this story is..")

In my contemporary romances the story is about personal growth and the bond of family and friendhsip, and two people falling in love even when obstacles cross their paths.

Which format of book do you prefer, eBook, hardback, or paperback?

I am old school and will always prefer print, whether paperback or hardback, over eBooks. In fact, I’ve realized I can’t barely read eBooks. Maybe it’s becuase I spend so much time on the computer for all of my jobs, but a real escape to me is reading a print book.

What is your favorite book and Why?  Have you read it more than once?

It’s impossible to answer this question. I have so many favorite books, and those favorite books I’ve read more than once. So. Many.

Do you think books transfer to movies well? Which is you favorite/worst book to movie transfer?

I would LOVE my books to become movies! I think they’d be hysterical and fun.

Your favorite food is?

Pizza. But I’m picky about good pizza. If it’s not good pizza, I’m not wasting my time. And, if I can’t have pizza, I’m going for the Asian foods :) My favorite Asian dish is my mom’s sinagang. Yum. I’m half Filipino.

Your favorite singer/group is?

I love Kate Voegele and Miranda Lambert. I’m not sure if they’re my absolute favorite, but I listen to them all the time. Love. Them.

Your favorite color is?

Changes with my mood. I love pink, teal blue, and black.

Your favorite Author is?

I have too many to list. But, I would love to meet Patricia Cornwell someday!

about the author
clip_image037
Niecey Roy knew she wanted to be a writer from a very young age, but her moment of enlightenment came after watching the movie You’ve Got Mail. It was then she realized her place in life, and happily parked her butt on writing romance. Her dream was to create sexy vixens, hunky, half-naked heroes, and above all, romance; lots and lots of butterflies in the belly, breathless first kisses and happily-ever-afters.
Most days she can be found at home at a cluttered desk, pounding her tired little fingers away on a keyboard with nothing but black pepper flavored sunflower seeds and Visine as her weapons for mass-romance-novel-creation. When her fingers need a break, you’ll find her at a table with friends, drinking a few martinis and showing off a new pair of (sometimes ridiculous) high heels. She’s usually the loudest at the table and most often the one snorting with laughter.
Niecey is the author of Fender Bender Blues, a contemporary romantic comedy published by The Wild Rose Press. Her new romantic comedy series, What’s Love??? includes Another Shot At Love, and Done With Love releasing April 2014.
