Andi has the perfect life. She is about to graduate with an Architecture degree and marry her-All American baseball star-fiancĂ©. When she catches him in bed with another woman, her world is turned upside down. Left to pick up the pieces of her shattered life, she takes on a new persona—a promiscuous one. This new role protects her heart from ever being broken again.  Andi now lives by a set of rules. The game? Sex with a new pawn every weekend. Every Friday, she sets her sight on a new sexy, successful man to play along—no strings attached, please. When Monday rolls around, she kicks them to the curb and moves on. It has helped her get through the pain of her past—that is, until she meets Jackson.  The mysterious Jackson is excited to play her game. He too has had his heart broken in the past and isn’t looking for a repeat. Eventually, hearts get involved and Andi wonders if the game is still worth playing.  Will she look for a new pawn or will she break the rules with Jackson?

B&N        AMAZON          PAPERBACK


Andi has been screwed over by her fiance three weeks before graduation.  She is depressed for weeks. She finally seeks the help of others to hide the pain. The others are a string of lovers where there is only one rule. Three days and no looking back. Once your three days is up she never wants to see you again.  This has been working pretty well for her but now she's got a job in one of the best Architectural firms she's going to make this her last hurrah. 

Jackson is living through his own hurt so Andi's proposition for just the weekend sounds good to him. Besides there is some definite chemistry between them. Neither one seems to want the weekend to end Monday morning but Andi sticks to her guns.

They are both surprised when Jackson ends up being one of her new bosses. He is churlish and secretive at work. And to top it all off Andi finds out that her ex-fiance will be joining the firm as well. Could life get any worse?  Actually when Jackson finally gets his head out of his ass he realizes that Andi is just what he wants and starts pursuing her. Andi doesn't make it too hard for him but their combined pasts but up quite a few barriers to their love.

I enjoyed this book and the only drawback I found was the flashbacks. I understand wanting us to learn the past in bits and pieces but they were sometimes distracting. I think maybe a whole flashback chapter for each character would have been a better idea.

4 Stars!

Author Bio:

I’m a thirty-two-year-old self-proclaimed book nerd.  Married to for nearly eleven years, my husband and I enjoy spending time with our two lovely children.  Writing is a newly acquired fun hobby for me.  In the past, I’ve enjoyed the role as a reader.  However, recently, I learned that I absolutely love taking on the creative role as the writer.  Something about determining how the story will play out intrigues me to no end.  My husband claims that it’s because I like to control things—in a way, he’s right! 
            By day, I run around from appointment to appointment, wearing many hats including, mom, wife, part-time graphic designer, blogger, networker, social media stalker, student, business owner, and book boyfriend hunter.  (It’s actually a thing—complete with pink camo.  I lurk around the internet, “researching” pictures of hot guys who fit the profile of whatever book boyfriend I’m reading or writing about)
            I guess you can blame my obsession with books on my lovely grandmother, who is quite possibly my favorite person on the planet.  At an early age, she took me to the half-priced bookstore each weekend and allowed me to choose a book.  Every single time, she caved when I begged for two.  Without her encouragement, I wouldn’t have been able to cope during some hard times without my beloved books.  
            Currently, I am finishing up my college degree that has taken me forever to complete.  It’s just on the list of my many “bucket-list” goals that I subject myself to.
            Most days, you can find me firmly planted in front of my computer.  It’s my life.  If the world ever loses power, I’d be one of the first to die—of boredom!  But I guess as long as I have books and a light, I might just survive. 
            Looking forward, you can expect to see two more novels in the Breaking the Rules Series.  I’m nearly finished with the third.  Also, I have a standalone novel that will be released soon as well. 
            This writing experience has been a blast, and I’ve met some really fabulous people along the way.  I hope my readers enjoy reading my stories as much as I do writing them.  I look forward to connecting with you all!
