Hi! 🖐 There's a bunch of new people here so I thought I'd intoduce myself! I don't think I've ever done that here on Instagram before!

I'm Jenn! (Duh) 🌴

I'm a romance author. 📚

I have 1 son (Blake or The Boy). He's twenty - freaking - one. (Don't ask me how that happened since I'm still 21 myself.) 😂🤪 ha! He is a baseball player and this is his last year of college ball!! ⚾️
.
I am dating the real life inspiration for JACK F'N CARTER from The Perfect Game. We dated in college and now we're dating again! Dating is a dumb word and doesn't sound very serious. We are very serious. Very seriously dating. Lol We're in a long distance relationship right now. It's hard, but worth it. People ask me a lot of relationship and long distance dating advice and I AM HERE FOR IT! Ask away! 💙

I live in California- born and raised and proud as hell. #SoCal 🌊

I am the #ChildofSummer and part time mermaid. (See picture lol) 🌞🧜🏼‍♀️
.

Now it's your turn! Tell me something about you! .

Some days I wish he was this little again. Not only because he was so darn cute, but because I know I could be a better Mom this time around.

I think back to those years we spent sharing a 1 bedroom condo in my hometown and smile. Mostly because that's ALL we did. We smiled a lot. I think we laughed even more.
.
But then I get sad too.... when I think about how many hours I worked and how long I left him alone. Blake was always the first one at day care in the morning and the last one to be picked up at night. Even though he had fun while he was there, I still felt shitty about it. Like somehow it made me a not-so-great mom. Like I could have done better. Like I wasted so much time being away from him.

When I look back, I wonder if Blake felt like I ignored him? Was I on the computer too much? On the phone too often? Was I distracted? Did I tell him to be quiet when I should have let him talk? Did I yell when I should have been soft? Did I punish him when I should have been more understanding?

I'm not sure why all these particular feelings are creeping in today. It might be because my niece's son started Kinder yesterday and it threw me back in time. And if you know me at all- well, I tend to spiral. Yay! Rabbit holes are fun!
.
Anyway. I really hope that Blake grew up knowing that he was the center of my world.  And that I would have done anything for him.  And that he is the greatest thing in my life.

I'm sorry for being a less than perfect mom. If you make yourself 5 again, I promise to do better. 🤪

🤣🤣🤣 I mean.... welcome to dating a female!

Strap on in. Here comes the fun! Lol
.
Are you like this?  I definitely am- but only with very specific things or topics I haven't fully resolved. Otherwise I let shit go, move on and tend to forget all about it. I think my brain only has so much capacity and it's getting full. Lol

I'm about to take my notebook to the pool and flush out some last minute plotting issues for Losing Stars. Since this story has changed SO MANY TIMES since I first started writing it almost 4 (!!!!!!) years ago, it's a bit of a mess in places. But don't worry, I'll fix it. :)
.
I try not to work EVERY SINGLE DAY, but it's hard. I feel guilty if I'm not writing. I feel like I'm not being productive enough, or writing enough words, or doing anything enough. It's a constant battle.
.
Being your own boss is tough. Don't get me wrong, i wouldn't change it for the world, but it's a different kind of stress than working for someone else. The pressure to succeed doesn't take days off, you know what I mean?
.
Anyway, I'm not complaining! Truly. I'm grateful! So grateful. For every single moment of this life. Especially after all the chaos of the last 24 hours. My heart aches.

Who's ready for the final installment in The Celebrity Series?????
.
I had Quinn & Ryson's story all planned out from the start. When I originally thought up the series, it was supposed to be four books, broken into two duets. Breaking Stars was supposed to be 2 books and so was this one. There was no Seeing Stars in my original plan.
.
I am so glad that THAT changed! I LOVE Seeing Stars and I know so many of you do too! It is one of my favorite books and I had the best time writing it. That book was born of complete creative inspiration.. more than any other I've ever written.
.

This book though... it was supposed to go a very different way. And I couldn't change my mind about it no matter how many times I tried. I was dead set on Ryson and Quinn's story unfolding in a very specific way.
.
But then something DID change. To be honest, I think it was my heart. And I could no longer tell this story the way I always thought I needed too. I threw over half the book away.

I started over.
.
I started over again.
.
This book has been my most difficult book in terms of replotting, retelling and figuring it all out. I've never done to any story what I've done to this one.
.
But when it's done (we are well over half way there) it is going to be EPIC! Honestly, it already pretty much is.
.
I'm SO freaking excited to FINALLY give you Quinn and Ryson! Coming soon! Add the book on Goodreads! Link is in my profile!

What's your favorite kind of wine?

I'm not a big wine drinker but I've learned that I prefer reds. Not all reds. Only some.

Which ones? Yeah... I don't freaking remember. Someone pass the gin. 🍸

°•°•°•☆SYNOPSIS☆°•°•°
They say you always want what you can't have. And what I want is Julia La Bella. I'm supposed to hate her with every fiber of my being, but I'll let you in on a little secret.... I don't. Not even close. The woman is stunning. She's also a colossal pain in my ass- but even that turns me on.

Julia's my number one competitor in the wine industry and she also happens to live next door. Not a good combination for a guy who's been told to "stay away from her" his whole life. Our parents can't stand each other; a bitter, outdated rivalry with no end in sight. Which doesn't fare well for my heart. Or my loins. Yeah, I went there.

I want her. I've always wanted her. So how am I going to convince her to see me as the super hot, smart, irresistible guy next door, instead of the one person on earth she's supposed to despise? I'm not entirely sure, but we're about to find out. 
Wish me luck.
