Unrequited love is the biggest heartache

Sometimes the one thing you want is way out of reach.

Read for FREE in Kindle Unlimited: Amazon

Falling in love with your ex should never feel this good ...
Twelve years, three cities, and too many pairs of stilettos later, Shaelyn Lawrence is back in the one place she vowed never to return: New Orleans.
Thankfully, her hometown stint is temporary. Better yet, she has a plan guaranteed to get her out ASAP:
  • Return her aging-but-still-crazy grandmother back to health;
  • Help her cousin with her boutique;
  • Evade Brady Taylor, her high school sweetheart, a.k.a the reason she fled Louisiana in the first place.
Brady isn't even a footnote ... until one unexpected run-in with him changes everything. She shouldn't be tempted by his drawl, she shouldn't be tempted by the promise of his kiss, she shouldn't want him. But she does. Oh, boy, this was so not the plan. - - Twelve years, one city, and too many issued traffic tickets later, Homicide Detective Brady Taylor is all geared up for being promoted to sergeant within the New Orleans Police Department. Or, he would be -- if he wasn't sitting in third place. Thankfully, he's cut out every possible distraction:
  • Hanging out with his buddies;
  • Women;
  • And, God help him, football.
His life should be distraction-free . . . but then Shaelyn Lawrence waltzes back into it, with her sexy red lips, curvy body, and her f***-me heels. Brady should run in the opposite direction. He definitely shouldn't spend time pursuing her, kissing her, or landing her in his bed. But he does. Shaelyn may have left once, but Brady is determined to prove that Shaelyn belongs in New Orleans. She belongs with him.
For fans of Jill Shalvis and Lauren Layne, Maria Luis' new sexy contemporary romance will leave you laughing and desperate for more! SAY YOU'LL BE MINE is the first full-length novel in the NOLA Heart series, but can be read as a standalone.

About FRAUD

Available May 1st, 2017
From USA Today Bestselling author J.L. Berg comes a sexy standalone about love, lies and every dirty little thing in between.
It wasn’t just a job. It was my way back to the top. After losing my position as a journalist for one of the biggest news publications in the world, I knew I’d do anything to get it back. Even if it meant breaking a few hearts to get there. She was the hottest author in the country. Known only by a pen name, there wasn’t a person alive who wasn’t dying to discover her true identity. And I’d figured it out.
Her real name was Kate O’Malley and not only did I plan on finding her, but I fully intended on learning every dirty secret she had and exploiting it for my own gain. But I underestimated my prey. I didn’t anticipate how her words would intoxicate me, or how the curves of her body would consume me. I never meant to fall in love. And now I had a choice to make.
Do I give up everything for the woman I set out to destroy, or walk away, making me the biggest fraud of all?

Read an excerpt from FRAUD

What had started as a fun little game to bring this timid beauty out of her shell somehow turned into a wrestling match. And I was the one about to lose. Katelyn O’Malley was nothing like I’d imagined. What had I imagined? I wasn’t sure exactly. I’d diligently done my homework— reading Scandal not once, but twice— before I’d hopped on a plane to Oregon. I’d thought the novel would give me insight to this perplexing woman I was about to meet. It hadn’t. Not one bit. If anything, it’d created a thousand more questions.

 At first, cracking her ironclad shell seemed like a daunting task. She had come off dry and dull. God-awful boring. But boring women didn’t do tequila shots until two in the morning. Boring women didn’t lie to waiters for free wine and dessert. And boring women definitely didn’t make me feel this way. Needy. Desperate. And fucking horny as hell. Even the way she licked the chocolate off her fork was making me shift uncomfortably in my seat. This was a job. Get your head in the game. “You were pretty good at that,” I said, trying not to stare at the way her pink tongue darted out to grab the last bit of mousse from the tip of her finger. “Good at what?” she asked. “Lying.” She let out a choking cough, patting her chest with her palm. “I’m not a good liar,” she argued. “Really?

You seemed to have everyone around us fooled, including that charming elderly couple who offered their congratulations on their way out.” “That really was sweet.” She smiled, a touch of whimsy in her gaze. “Did you see the way they held hands? I’m pretty sure he even grabbed her ass when she walked past him to go to the restroom.” I laughed. “My kind of guy.” “I just wonder what it’s like— to be that in love after all that time,” she said, bending forward and resting the curve of her chin on her hand. “How do you know it has been a long time?” I asked. “Maybe they got married late in life.” She shook her head. “I don’t think so.” “Why?” I asked, curious how she’d reached that conclusion. “There was a familiarity in the way they touched.

The way they leaned into one another, the way they walked. It was as if they’d been doing so forever.” I studied her for a quiet moment, recalling the intensity of her words and the passion in her voice. It was the first time since meeting Katelyn O’Malley, I could actually see a sliver of Laura Stone, the author, somewhere inside. “I do believe you are a bit of a romantic at heart,” I replied. She smiled sweetly. “Maybe a hopeless one.” My hand reached out to hers, a needless gesture since we’d already achieved our goal for the evening and sold everyone on our false marital status. This time, I touched her because I wanted to. “Definitely not hopeless,” I said softly, knowing that instant that I was crossing the line between business and pleasure. And heading straight to the land of hell. “So, tell me about technical editing,” she said, shifting topics. “How does one get into something like that?” I suddenly felt like I’d been hit in the face with a bucket of ice water.

Here I was, in a dimly lit room, romancing the hell out of a woman I’d just met, and then reality hit. I was lying to her. Flat-out lying. I needed to remember that. “There’s not much to tell,” I said, straightening slightly in my chair. “Rather boring really.” We continued to chat about our lives. She told me more about her work at the college. I rambled off more lies about mine until the check came around. I was feeling quite good about myself as I led us outside. My head was clear. But then I saw the way the moonlight highlighted her golden-blonde hair. I became mesmerized by the sway of her hips and the soft curves of her body. Katelyn O’Malley was casting a spell on me, and she didn’t even know it. And I wasn’t sure I wanted her to stop.

Approaching 40, I decided to cross one huge achievement off my bucket list…To write a book.
As a young girl, I had always loved to read. Preferring stories with strong female characters, I loved the feeling of being part of their story. Almost like I had been witness to the very events that unfolded on the pages before me. I felt as though these great women were my friends.
I knew that if I did in fact ever write a book of my own, I would only want strong positive women on my pages. I held that dream very close to me, never telling anyone.
Years later, a friend recommended a book to me… I didn’t love it. She made an innocent comment, “Well you couldn’t do any better.” It lit a fire deep inside me. That young girl who dreamt of writing wasn’t dead. She was alive and well, but had been busy working, having children and being a wife.
Those words, while weighed heavily upon me, also freed me at the same time. It was the kick up the butt I needed. “Why couldn’t I do any better?” I could and I knew it.
So, I sat down and began to write. The words flowed so easily. Before I knew it, my book had taken shape.
The beauty was I was able to use the old, “If the book you want to read isn’t written…write it,” theory.
I incorporated a love of strong women and one of my favourite sports…Mixed Martial Arts.
I hope that people who read my book not only love it…and I know you will…but I hope it reminds you that all those little dreams you have, you can achieve them. You can do anything you want. Re-light the fire inside you…and if you can’t…get a friend to accidently do it for you.

EXCERPT

"You know what I think every time I see Saturn?" Wynn came up behind him.
"Tell me." He adjusted the focus and continued to stare at the planet.
"That's out there." Her voice took on a dream-like soft quality that surrounded him.
He glanced at her then back to the planet.
"Garner, that is out there, and it’s massive, and colorful and beautiful, and how lucky are we to be able to look in a telescope and see it?" She put her hand on his arm. "For as long as I live and as long as you live, and for as long as everyone who is alive on this little blue ball today, that incredible, gorgeous ringed planet will be there. Like it was put there for us to see."
He nodded. When she looked into the sky she saw home, and he saw endless possibilities.
"Let me show you something else." Once more, she took the helm.
The dome of the telescope turned slightly, the sound of gears grinding and machinery moving echoed around them. Again, she motioned him over, and he looked into the lens at an ocean of stars with Mars off of the far left. "You are off here." If she wanted to focus on the planet, her aim wasn't right.
"No, I'm not." She stood close beside him. "We need a radar telescope to see it, but you’re looking at the piece of sky where I discovered the asteroid."
Right there, looking at the stars, his book took form. It was him and Wynn, one homeward bound, one running away.
"What would you be doing now, if you never turned the telescope and found it?" he asked. Would she have still sought him out? Did she find that asteroid and cheer because she had a reason to contact him, or did she curse she had to search him out?
"I don't know, but I think I was meant to find it." She stepped away.
He watched her pace around the small building.
"Don't you find it odd that in the infinite amount of space, I happened across the one undiscovered asteroid that was on course with Maverick?" As if something spooked her, she wrapped her arms around her shoulders.
Her words made his heart speed and his stomach drop, and he instantly went to her. "Until this exact second, I didn't think about it."
"I know. For so long I was caught up in games, favors, and all the fanfare. And then two days ago, I was walking through your kitchen." She turned and looked up at him. "Your kitchen."
"Yes." Needing a connection to her, he took her hand.
"I was getting a snack and I opened your refrigerator, and after all these years, there was your milk, your bar of chocolate, your block of cheese."
In the darkness, he caught a bit of light twinkling off the tears in her eyes.
"Then off to the side, was my yogurt. It hit me that I was in your kitchen looking for my yogurt and then it hit me," she continued. "I think we all go through life letting things happen and not thinking about it or its connection to anything else. We get so caught up in the most trivial things, but out of everything in the universe, I found that asteroid."
Her words, her tone, just her, all stirred something in him and acting purely on instinct, he pulled her closer and kissed her.
Unable to contain his need, he opened his mouth. In an instant, their tongues connected, and his body reacted. The desire he possessed the night before came back in full force, a throb radiating through him. He either needed to stop or make love to her right here and right now.
