Rock and a Hard Place

She was the quiet girl grieving her family and former life. He was the rock star looking for a regular girl. After a chance meeting, Libby and Peter soon fell in love and had to navigate the tricky maze of a small town girl secretly dating a super star.

Their world is rocked when his family interferes and her eccentric aunt is exposed. They are torn from each other. How will they find each other again when so much is working against them?

 

Snapshot

Marti Hunter hates rockers and anything remotely related to the rock-and-roll lifestyle. She thought she’d left that all behind, along with her drug-addicted mother and absent-minded, rock legend father. Now she lives with her grandmother, and Marti’s life is finally normal. Just the way she likes it.

For Adam Jamieson, normal is not possible. He is the genius guitar player of the band Jamieson. He’s ecstatic to finally get a two-week break from his micromanaged life and a chance to hang with regular teens. Adam’s shaving off his trademark curls and going undercover.

But when Marti, the reluctant rock princess, and Adam, the undercover guitar wizard, meet, sparks fly in more ways than one. They spend their time alternating between making out and driving each other crazy. But their summer adventures of skinny dipping, storm watching, and stolen kisses are brought to a halt when tragedy strikes.

Suddenly, they’re on opposite sides of the country, just when they need each other the most. Can Marti survive life with her dad and his vicious girlfriend? Will Adam get so fed up with his over-managed life and controlling parents that he quits the band?

Snapshot. A moment in time that changes two people forever.

 

Dream Chaser

Willow Thomas has a bad habit of running away from things that scare her. And most recently, she quit her high school cheerleading squad after a terrifying fall.

With time on her hands, she auditions for a musical production directed by a Broadway choreographer. Just when things are looking up, Willow discovers she will be performing opposite Eli McAvoy, the best friend she abandoned three years before. To make matters worse, the kids in the musical hate her, her singing sucks, and her dog is sick.

Eli has grown up during their years apart and now possesses confidence and good looks, as well as a giant chip on his shoulder. He is in no hurry to play nice with Willow, but their entwined roles in the musical lead to entwined bodies in the backseat of his car.

Just when she finally has her life under control, another surprise is delivered in the form of her greatest challenge yet. Will she run or finally stand and face her fears? And will Eli be there to help or turn his back on her for good?

 

Love ’em or Leave ’em

Ashley Reynolds, who hates having her picture taken, lands smack in the middle of a reality television dating show. She is surrounded by glamour girls and pageant queens all vying for a date with the hot bachelor. Ashley’s plan, to fly under the radar and get sent home early, falters due to her knack of drawing unwanted attention.

Bad boy quarterback Luke Townsend thought choosing between 25 stunning women would be a dream come true. How wrong he was!

Luke’s patience is tried by the wiles of the charmers and the persistence of the camera crews. It doesn’t take long to realize that the one girl trying the hardest to get off the show is the one who most intrigues him.

 

Snowed Over

To college student, Katie Brandt, ‘Home for the Holidays’ sounds like hell. When her parents separated, their holiday traditions shattered like a dropped ornament. What could be worse than celebrating Christmas with her suddenly single mom and mom’s new boyfriend?

Alex Walker, an engaged 20-year-old, dreads going home for his own reasons. He has a daunting task ahead of him and wishes he could skip the holidays altogether. So when a friend of a friend needs a ride north, Alex finds that having beautiful Katie seated by his side proves to be just the distraction he needs.

A simple ride home for Christmas turns into a nightmare when light snow rages into a full-scale blizzard. Katie and Alex find themselves stranded, and a vacant cabin becomes a haven from the storm.
Under different circumstances, time alone with Alex would be the ultimate Christmas gift, but Katie knows Alex is engaged and she must hide her growing attraction.

However, Alex harbors a secret that just might change this holiday from the worst Christmas ever, to the best.

    Hi Angie,
    I have just completed Snapshot for the second time. It is one of my favorite books. Both times I read it, I was so invested with what was going on that I felt as though I was a part of the story. I would absolutely love it if you did another book about Marti and Adam. Their love is so pure and beautiful and I want to see how their lives develop with each other. Would you consider writing another book about them? I was also hoping that you might consider making a film adaptation of Snapshot. Sometimes adaptations go horribly wrong but I think if it stayed true to the book and you found the right cast and crew, it could be perfect. I act and Marti would be a dream role for me. She is so strong throughout such harsh times and even when she seems weak, she gets through it all. Your writing is beautiful and I’d love to work with you someday.

    Lots of love,
    Eva Allen

      Eva,
      I love rereading books and hearing you felt like part of the book is awesome. That’s how I feel when I write them. There’s no plan for another Marti and Adam story at this time, but you never know. A movie would be really fun! And, of course, you can play her. 🙂
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me.

    So I finished Royally Lost at about 2am this morning – and let me tell you, I don’t stay up until 2am for just anyone – and I cannot tell you how annoyed I am about that. I constantly feel like I’m holding my breath, holding and holding with the expectancy building; I just want to turn around, look at your book, find that it’s 3 times longer than it was before and then breathe out in relief. Alas, we both know that will never happen. I imagine this is what Becca felt when she was torn from Nickolai; cold, hard separation anxiety. I seriously love your writing and this book (all your books actually) but I just wish I could see more girl-power moments from Becca and swoon at Nickolai and his blonde locks and broad shoulders, sigh. But I guess every good book leaves you wanting more. Congratulations on this tremendous piece of writing, it was incredibly entertaining and hey, I learnt a few things about Europe too!
    I’m positive you don’t need assurance of your skills from me, but keep writing like you do and I’ll certainly keep buying, love Anni. xxx

    P.S. Just letting you know I would totally buy a book with Alexi’s story. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

When i started reading a rock and a hard place i didn’t put it down!! Best book I have read in a while!!! I’m excited to read the new book coming out soon!! Even though I’m still mad at what garret did to Libby. 🙁 So excited to read the rest of your books!! Please don’t stop writing!!!

      Excellent question. I’ve wanted to give them something more, but I haven’t quite come up with it yet. If I do, I promise to shout it from the rooftops.

    I was just wondering if you were considering having the Jamison Brothers novels adapted. I’m going to college in Winter Park, Florida next year for screenwriting and would love a chance to work with you sometime.

    You are so sweet! I’m glad you liked Snapshot. The next book in the collection won’t be out until next year, but Royally Lost came out in May. I wish I could wave a magic wand and write faster for you!
