you knew I wasn’t drunk?” I ask him and he grins.

I knew you were sober. I didn’t knock you down though. That was just luck on my
part,” he chuckles. “Then you were there by my side, and I had to go up on
stage to play. There has never been a time that I didn’t want to perform more
than that night. I told the guys we were going to cut it short. When I finished
the second song, I saw you had left and it was all I could do to finish the
set. I was so pissed at myself for allowing you out of my sight again.”

are you telling me this?” I ask him.

need you to trust me.” He grabs my hand, placing it in his lap. “I can’t tell
you where I was Friday night, at least not yet. But believe me Sadie, I wasn’t
with anyone else. You’re the only girl who consumes my thoughts, my dreams, and
my mind. Please trust me when I say there is no one else,” his voice is
desperate, saturating his soft brown eyes.

big part of me believes him. My thoughts go to Jessa and how she now trusts
guys again after what her ex-boyfriend did to her. I need to move on with my
life; it’s been over a year and I still harbor all of the hurt and remorse. If
I don’t start living my life, it is going to pass me by. Brady’s right, I never
gave him a fair shot.

believe you,” I whisper, still unsure of my decision to give this a chance.

you, Sadie.” He releases the deepest breath in relief. “Now I have one more
favor.” He peers over at me, continuing to hold my hand.


on a date with me. A real date, just you and me from beginning to end,” he
asks, squeezing my hand.

close my eyes, willing myself to allow me to have this. Give myself the
possibility to have happiness and accept the consequences. “Yes,” I answer him.

picks up my hand and spreads it open, kissing my palm to his lips, and I wish
he would continue that kiss up my arm.

It’s Monday,” I counter.

“I’mnot waiting a whole week, Sadie.” He shakes his head and releases my hand,
placing the sketchbook back in his bag.

I agree.

go, I’ll walk you back to the dorm.” He holds his hand out to help me up and
then keeps it firmly in his for the entire walk.

“Howdid you know where I lived?”

I’ve got to keep some secrets to myself.” He smirks over to me, squeezing my
hand again.

aren’t some stalker guy who is going to murder me tonight, are you?” I question

promise you, I’m not a stalker and I’m not going to murder you. Kidnap maybe,
but not murder,” he laughs.

LET ME IN (The Invisibles #2)


**This is a STANDALONE! You do not
need to read book 1 in order to enjoy LET ME IN ***

Grant is damaged, selfish, and
undeserving of love…or so he thinks.

Jessa is happy, in love, and has
overcome her past…or so she thinks.

Grant and Jessa can’t stop thinking
about one another since being introduced at a party a month ago. And despite
their differences, they can’t seem to stay away from each other either.
However, both are hiding secrets of less-than-perfect pasts, fearing what will
happen when those mistakes come to light. As they grow closer, they each battle
their own insecurities, and neither believes that they are worthy of the kind
of love that they both still want. So if it’s true that opposites attract, what
happens when the similarities begin to surface?

Let Me In Excerpt

I shut the door
after waving goodbye to Grant and a rush of unexpected sadness smacks me. Ever
since Sadie persuaded me to move out of the dorms and into Brady’s house with
them, I’ve seen Grant every day. Although his jeans and university sweatshirt
apparel isn’t normally my preference anymore, I can’t help but notice the way
his shirt usually tightens around his biceps. And I really couldn’t help but
notice the way his shirt would rise up when he was painting, exposing a six
pack that I assume he works for on a daily basis. I also haven’t missed the wayhis honey-colored hair sticks up in different directions every time he runs his
fingers through it when he seems tired or annoyed. It’s only been two short
weeks since I first met Grant, but I’m not blind to our connection with each
other. I keep reminding myself though that guys like him don’t go for girls
like me. Not to mention, I have Rob.

Rob treats me
well, better than anyone else ever has. I might not like the way he checks out
other girls when they walk by, or the way he usually walks through doors in
front of me, but he’s nicer than Jason and we are definitely attracted to one

“What are you
doing?” Sam asks. Now here’s the girl for Grant. My sister’s long chestnut hair
is curled in little corkscrews with a few strands pinned back, while the rest
flows down her back. The skirt she’s wearing, which looks like she ironed it
this morning, is paired with a cute matching sweater. She and Grant would make
the most adorable little preppy babies together.

“Nothing … why?”
I ask her.

“You’ve been
leaning against that front door for the past five minutes,” she laughs, and I
quickly remove my hand that still rests on the doorknob.

“Just thinking,”
I answer, starting to walk back into the room.

“Not about Rob,”
she states and raises her eyebrows in question.

Although she’s
mostly correct, I decide to take the defensive, “Shut the fuck up, Sam.” I walk
into the family room, ignoring her.

“It’s okay,
Jessa. I know you like him,” she calls out to me, but I continue my way through
the family room and into the kitchen. I grab a beer out of the fridge and chug
half of it before sitting down at the table. I know I shouldn’t be so mean toSam; she’s my sister and knows me better than anyone. Not to mention, she stood
by my side during that horrible time. 

She’s knows the depression and the hurt I
suffered after that asshole destroyed my life. I’ll never forget the night she
was my guardian angel. Without her … who knows where I’d be. A hospital, a
prison, or not on this earth at all.

Most of all, I
know she’s right. I do like Grant, but to what degree, I have no idea. I’m not
about to blow what I have with Rob, only to find out that Grant has no
interest. I chuckle to myself, thinking about him bringing me to one of those
Greek formals.

LET ME LOVE (The Invisibles #3)


A chance encounter. An undeniable
connection. An unimaginable twist of fate.

Kailey’s life is crumbling. Her best
friend and sister, Jen, is dying, leaving her young family devastated. With
little hope of saving her, Kailey is forced to face a reality she never

Trey’s life is fun and carefree. He
loves the girls, his drums, and his friends. That’s not to say he isn’t
continuously plagued by a difficult decision made years ago—one that changed
the course of his life.

Despite the connection they make whentheir paths unexpectedly cross, Kailey knows her life has no room for anyone
else right now. But regardless of how many times she pushes him away, Trey only
fights harder to make a place for him in her life and in her heart.

Trey thought he knew heartbreak, but
he had no idea until life gave him a second chance, only to snatch it away just
as fast. This time he’s determined to keep his place in the life of the ones he

Is there such a thing as fate? If so,
can Kailey and Trey hold on to one another long enough to discover there’s no
such thing as a chance encounter?

Let Me Love Excerpt

“Trey, thank you for coming, but you can leave
now,” I say coldly with no emotion.  He
can’t be tied down with me, he needs to go and live a life I can no longer be a
part of. 

“No, Kailey, I’m not leaving.” He stands firm,
planting his feet. Uncontrollable anger starts brewing in my veins.  I’m mad he won’t listen to me and just
disappear. Can’t he see it’s the best for him to forget us?

My hand rests on the lock; ready to twist it
open when he steps forward. He turns me around to face him and cages me between
his arms against the door. “Trey,” I argue, but he presses his lips to mine and
an immediate raging desire seeps into my every pore. As much as my body screams
to him, anger still lingers that he’s forcing me to be callous andcruel.

He places his hands on either side of my face,
continuing to kiss me as though he’s starving for only my mouth. Instinctively,
the irrational, live life in the moment Kailey that he easily pries out of me
appears. Something only my sister and her family could accomplish until he came
into my life. “Please,” he whispers, and my body starts to sway in his strong
hold, as he travels his lips over to my earlobe and down my throat.

“Stop it, Trey, leave me alone,” I cruelly
spout, placing my hands on his chest, trying to push him back, but he only
grips tighter.

“You know you don’t want me to.” He trusts his
keen instincts because they’re usually always right when it comes to me.

Trying to close myself off, I press my lips
together when his graze across mine again before his tongue requests
permission.  But in the end, I’m not
willing to deny myself, I open, allowing his familiar tongue to roam around my
mouth and mingle with mine.  The kiss
feels safe and warm, like home.  Ever
since that fateful plane ride, I’ve felt as if Trey was a part of me.  Recalling our first kiss; it was nothing like
this.  God! He ignited my whole body the
first time his mouth pressed against mine. 
In those three minutes, he ruined me. 
No man would ever compare.  But
this, this is what I crave at night when I lay in bed all alone. It’s the
familiarity of the one man who knows my lips, my tongue, and my body. My need
of one man who continues to enjoy exploring every curve and nuance over and
over again, as if he has discovered his own wonderland. When my thoughts
unscramble, my lips and tongue are moving carelessly without retention of the
real issue.

“Stop it, Trey.” This time, I use all my force
to push him back. I’m torn if I’m happy, mad, or just sad. Sheer dejection
fills his eyes, and suddenly remorse hits me. 
“We just can’t,” I softly say, shaking my head back and forth.

“Yes, we can,” he says, stepping forward, but I
shake my head violently again. “What the hell, Kailey? All I want to do is love
you,” his voice starts escalating, and I need to flee the room.  His presence alone makes me jittery and
uncontrolled. The sooner I leave, the sooner I can get myself stable again,
back into my sealed bubble.

“I told you already, Trey.” I bite my lip, not
wanting to lie again, but I will, if I have to.

“Don’t tell me that bullshit again.  You and I both know it isn’t true.” He steps
closer to me, and my weakness begins getting the best of me.

“Please, I need to get back out there,” I tell
him, but he approaches again, pulling me to him similar to a child with theirsecurity blanket.  I succumb to the haven
of his embrace, mindlessly relishing the warmness of home.

“Kailey, it’s taking everything in me not to
keep you right here, up against this door, until you admit you love me. I’ll
let you leave this room, but don’t say you don’t love me again.  I know you do, and no matter how hard you try
to push me aside, I’m not leaving.” He releases me after his rant, and I unlock
the door, fleeing the room.


Michelle moved around the Midwest most of
her life, transferring from school to school before settling down in the
outskirts of Chicago ten years ago, where she now resides with her husband and
two kids.  She developed a love of
reading at a young age, which helped lay the foundation for her passion to
write.   With the encouragement of her
family, she finally sat down and wrote one of the many stories that have been
floating around in her head. 

When she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found
playing with her kids, talking to her mom on the phone, or hanging out with her
family and friends.  But after chasing
around twin preschoolers all day, she always cherishes her relaxation time
after putting the kids to bed.
