I'm a fixer

Congratulations to "Jcp", the winner in Maggie's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

I’m a fixer. That’s why I am attracted to characters who like to get things set straight. Like Olivia Pope on Scandal. I admit the Prada bags and fabulous coats are a draw too, but I really like the part where she and her fellow gladiators in suits work every angle until they pull the thread that unravels the knot.

When I started writing the Love Games series, I knew I wanted to write a heroine like that. Supremely confident and competent. Unapologetic about perceived flaws. A warrior.
Wolcott University Public Relations Director, Millie Jensen, is that woman. Smart. Funny. This oh-so capable woman can take most any sticky situation and spin it into gold.

And that’s just one of the reasons men’s basketball coach, Tyrell Ransom, is determined to PLAY FOR KEEPS when it comes to making his relationship with Millie work. When scandal rocks Ty’s world, Millie swoops in with her leopard-print stilettos and saves the day!

Here’s a little taste of PLAY FOR KEEPS:
“So I have calls in to TODAY as well as LIVE, but word is Kelly Ripa is pretty much off the jock bandwagon since Michael Strahan jumped ship. They’re both long shots, but you don’t get what you don’t ask—” She stopped on a dime when she spotted Ty sitting in the chair opposite the athletic director. “Oh. You’re here.” 
Ty craned his neck to look at her. From this distance, his eyes looked like they were simply light brown. She knew they were so much more than the color of mud. Up close, she’d spotted flecks of gold and burnt caramel. They were sheltered by thick slashes of black brows so severe, they almost balanced out the lush sensuality of his full lips. Almost, but not quite. Taken as they were, the combination was arresting. Against the backdrop of his flawless tawny skin, the individual assets packed the punch of one of those sneaky umbrella cocktails. Pretty and seemingly innocuous at first glance, but potent enough to land a woman flat on her back. 
Oblivious to the turmoil clapping eyes on him stirred, he bobbed his head in a casual greeting. “Hey, Millie.” 
A bitter laugh rose in her throat, but she swallowed the tickle. She wasn’t expecting to see him. Or prepared. Damn him. 
It really burned her biscuits that he had such an implacable game face. He’d kissed her, then tried to apologize for it. She didn’t want an apology, but she needed at least a little time to psych herself up to be near him.
This was exactly why she didn’t care for the unexpected. When she was prepared, she could pretend their kiss was nothing more than impulse on the part of a friendly coworker. She could control the compulsion to stare at his mouth and make sure she spoke in a normal voice rather than the sex kitten purr his intense gaze all but demanded she use. With a little advance notice, she could school her racing pulse. She wasn’t opposed to all forms of combustion, only the spontaneous type. 

How about you? Are you a fixer, or do you prefer to be the one to mix things up? Comment below, and I’ll gift one winner with a Kindle copy of LOVE GAME (Love Games Book #1)


Mixing business and pleasure is a dangerous game...

Tyrell Ransom, the new men's basketball coach, is ready to whip his team into shape and start winning some games. But when compromising photos of his soon-to-be-ex-wife with one of his players go viral, everything comes crashing down. With reporters thick on the ground, Ty and his team need some serious damage control—now.
When public relations guru Millie Jenkins arrives in her leopard-print cape to save the day, things really heat up... Soon they're going to have to work double time to keep their white-hot chemistry out of the headlines.

  1. I definitely try never mix things up for me and people around me; but I don't consider myself as a fixer. More like half-fixer if that's possible, lol. Because honestly I often be that oblivious person who overlook what's going on around me. :D
