435 pages
ISBN 9780957496187

After eight years in prison, twenty-four year old Jordan Kane is the man everyone loves to hate.

Forced to return to his hometown while on parole, Jordan soon learns that this small town hasn’t changed since he was sent away. He is the local pariah, shunned by everyone, including his own parents. But their hatred of him doesn’t even come close to the loathing he feels every time he looks in the mirror.

Working odd jobs for the preacher lady, Jordan bides his time before he can leave this backwards town. But can time or distance erase the pain of living?

Torrey Delaney is new in town, and certainly doesn’t behave in a way the locals believe a preacher’s daughter should. Her reputation for casual hook-ups and meaningless sex quickly spreads. And that’s on top of her budding friendship with the hardened ex-con handyman—the good Reverend is less than thrilled with her estranged daughter’s path.

As friendship forms, can two damaged people who are afraid to love take their relationship to the next level? Can Torrey live with Jordan’s demons, and can Jordan break through Torrey’s walls? With the disapproval of a small town weighing heavily on them, they struggle to find their place in the world. Can they battle the odds, or will their world be viciously shattered?

Is love a life sentence?

Who’s your favorite three authors?
In contemporary romance, A Meredith Walters, Devon Hartford, JD Dixon… Hmmm, after that, well, just loads!
 
How do you think up such great characters to write about?
Thank you! I’m not sure I can answer that. The plot usually comes rushing in with fully formed characters. They develop as I write but they just seem to land in my brain.
 
The male and female ones? Lol The male ones are always HOT too!!  hehehe
It’s so much fun writing about hot guys. Wish fulfillment, I expect. But I like adding little tidbits of humor, too. I like writing about relationships that challenge the norm. Someone told me that all my books are about second chances. I hadn’t realized that, but I think it’s true.

About the author:
I started writing contemporary romance two years ago. Before that, I didn’t think I could write a sex scene.

Turns out I can!

My lucky number is 13 because I was born on the 13th and live near a haunted castle by the ocean. My number one past-time is watching hot surfers get changed into (and out of) their wetsuits.

My husband doesn’t read my books. My mother does.

Writing is my love, my hobby, my total addiction. All my characters are important to me and whisper their stories, even when I’ve finished writing their books. That’s why you’ll often find bonus chapters/out-takes from various books, because those voices just won’t be quiet.

Readers can find bonus chapters for several of my books on my website www.janeharveyberrick.com

  1. I've only read Lifers so far, but that one was definitely about second chances! I also like that humor is added in, for me it's a key element in a contemporary story (especially) because it lightens up the serious tone.
    Thanks for hosting a tour stop!
