Macy's Diary


Dev is finally committed to Macy and settling down. But events take a turn for the worst, and the contents of Macy's Diary are more than Dev can bear.  His friends rally to his side, but will it be enough? 

-Excerpt from In Her Sights

In Her Sights

All Kenny ever wanted was to be a rock star, it was his destiny. To the world, it seems as if his dream has come true: A Thousand Words is music sensation with international success. Yet behind the scenes Dev is falling apart and Jess is struggling with forbidden desires. Bryan helps keep the peace in their tight circle, but Kenny’s concerned. While he works to maintain control of his faltering band, Jess shows him something else that needs his help. Someone else.


Paige doesn’t need Kenny’s help, she can handle things herself. Usually. It's just this time she’s in more trouble than she initially realized – a controversial problem that she needs to keep quiet. Kenny would be a nice backup plan in case everything goes sideways on her, and Paige decides maybe he’s worth keeping. His little friends are a problem, but she can handle them. Kenny studies psychology to keep Jess and Dev in hand, and Bryan manipulates all three from the sidelines with quiet reason. It’s so cute. If the boys pay close attention, Paige will show them how it’s done.

A Gorgeous Mess

Macy's Diary


The Thousand  Words Series


A New Adult steamy romance series that follows the band from The Lexi Frost Series. Teri's teenagers are  adults now and finding a new kind of mischief. Life, love, hopes, and dreams. There are crushing heartbreaks and lessons to be learned in their future. Like life, it's not so much about the ending - romance is about the journey.


A Gorgeous Mess


Jess has bounced from one relationship to the next, never finding a woman that measures up to the one that got away. That’s not fair, the one that got away was never his to begin with. Cassie is a fantasy, nothing more ­– an ideal Jess uses to measure all other women against, and they fall short.

He’s tired of playing the game. No one is ever going to be everything he wants and it’s time he admitted that. So he’ll settle. Bryan has always had Brenda, now Kenny has Paige and Dev has Macy. Their former roommate, Imogen, is good enough. Everyone’s friends, isn’t that perfect? He just has to help her get well enough to be released from the asylum. 

Just when Jess is at his lowest point, help comes from an unexpected source.



          Paige rose unsteadily to her feet and kept one hand on the wall beside her as she made her way toward the midsection of the yacht. A few people passed her and by the time the gangplank came into view, or would have had it not been blocked by photographers and looky-loos, Paige was walking with confidence again. She straightened her clingy blue dress and held back. She was Miss Great Lakes, and even before the title, people came to her.
          A tall blond man followed closely by an equally tall dark-haired one caught Paige’s eye through a gap in the group crowding the passage. She recognized Jess Baxter and Dev Giles of A Thousand Words instantly by the small glimpses she got of them. Two more brunettes followed, who could only be Kenny Wright and Bryan Trino, although she couldn’t see their faces in the crowd.
          Paige paused to consider the unexpected change of events. She was engaged for the charity cruise at the last minute and thought she knew the celebrities enlisted to draw the locals with deep pockets, but she didn’t remember seeing a rock band on the list. Paige would have remembered seeing Jess’s name. Unfortunately, she would have to stay as far away from Jess Baxter as she could. Even association with him and his philandering reputation would put her title in danger. 
          With regrets, Paige turned and walked back toward the fore deck of the ship. She began mingling with the older guests, the ones less interested in the goings-on of rock stars no matter how desirable.  
          The smile on Paige’s face remained securely pleasant while her mind drifted. Mr. Davis Chamberlain III continued to detail the recent remodel of his summer home, but Paige’s mind was elsewhere. Let them force her to resign her position as Miss Great Lakes, she was going to have a rich fiancé waiting. She was going to be …
          Paige considered her options and regretfully eliminated Jess. He was so handsome! But he knew it, and he wouldn’t be faithful judging by his reputation. She didn’t buy that idiot act for a moment. Dev and Kenny were smart, they wouldn’t stand for their lead singer being a moron.
          Dev was too smart. Paige wasn’t confident she could handle him. Plus there was something about him. He was shy – sure, everyone knew that – but it was something more. Secrets. Maybe it was that Erika Atlas thing. Paige wasn’t buying that Dev was actually dating the pop star. The pictures were good, but something wasn’t right. To her it looked like a PR cover. Why did Dev need a cover? Was he gay? It was stupid to cover it up, maybe he wasn’t as smart as she thought.
          Kenny was smart. He obviously ran things, not that any interview she read said it outright. Bryan Trino was married and she didn’t need to be a home wrecker so that was off the table. Besides, he seemed too bland for her taste.
          Her thoughts were interrupted when Paige had to answer Mr. Chamberlain. Paige feigned interest a little too well. Flattered, Mr. Chamberlain started boasting about the customized boathouse and lakeside improvements he’d made. Paige was mildly interested in this and half-listened so she could tell her mother, but half her mind considered what she knew about Kenny Wright. The answer was far too little.



Transitions

Dev feels like he's lost everything. He's learning to stand on his own, and at least he has his girlfriend and friends backing him up. 

Except he doesn't. Lindsay has plans Dev just isn't ready for and his friends do nothing but point out how wrong she is for him. Keeping Lindsay is tearing the band apart, as is his decision to leave his problems behind and move across the country for college. 

Dev will make new friends, put Lindsay's troubling plans on hold, and take some time to figure out if he's a rock star, a hacker, or both.
