Excerpt: Break Every Rule (Being The Billionaire’s Girlfriend Prequel)

Bri languished in the island heat. Summers in Brooklyn were hot and sticky, filled with fumes and people. Island life was a steady rhythm of warmth and wind. The quiet and ease came if you lived island life like Alan Mitchell did. 

She watched her client enter the pool from over the top of the tablet. To anyone watching her, Bri looked as if she was devouring her book instead of following Alan as he waded to the middle of the pool. He dipped underneath the water and popped right back up. Drenched, he looked like a modern-day god or a male model in a cologne commercial. Handsome and self-assured. The world available at his fingertips. 

Break Every Rule is available now on Kindle Unlimited.

Book Synopsis

Alan Mitchell doesn’t get surprised by life often. But after ending his engagement, he seeks solace in a meaningless distraction: a paid escort. He’s done it before—and enjoyed it. Why not now when he’s at his lowest?

Brianna lives a simple life. She works as an escort, all while enjoying a boyfriend who is thoroughly supportive of her occupation. However, when she meets her latest client, a young billionaire, sparks begin to fly in all the wrong ways. Temptation threatens her peaceful life, and she suddenly begins to question everything. After all, rebuffing a man like Alan Mitchell isn’t recommended in her line of work…

They’re both playing with fire. Someone’s bound to get burned.

Writing Tools: Scrivener

To date, I’ve written six full-length novels, a dozen novellas, and more than thirty short stories. I wrote most of my stories using Scrivener, using three different computers (I’ll tell you more in an upcoming post on my cloud storage solutions).

Scrivener is a fantastic writing tool. While I’ve used it since 2010, I still only use the basic features, and those are enough for me to completely recommend it. Here are my three favorite things about Scrivener:

  • SNAPSHOT An autosave feature is a must-have, and these days, many writing and other creative tools now offer this. But the Snapshot feature in Scrivener is a cut above. Just one click, and I have all my current versions of a scene captured and available to reference at any time. Now, I’m free to edit and even rewrite an entire chapter without worry that I might’ve cut too much or the wrong thing.
  • COMPILE STORY Once you’ve finished writing and editing your story, it’s time to publish your manuscript or submit it. The compile feature on Scrivener makes this process a breeze compared to all the steps and the process I needed to do many years ago. With just a few clicks, I formatted The Right Woman, book one in my U R Fever series, and had a clean, polished manuscript ready for my audience on Amazon.
  • CONVERT FILES I mentioned that I wrote many of my stories in Scrivener. But for the ones I had started previously in Word, Scrivener made the process of converting everything I’d written into a new Scrivener project. All I needed to do was import the file, and Scrivener did the rest. I had a copy of the story, ready to be organized into a novel format. The three books in my U R Fever series began as backstory to another set of stories in Alan and Brianna’s universe. It took no time to import those Word files into upcoming projects.

These are just a few of the great features available in Scrivener. I’ve used them to write, edit and publish The Right Woman and Break Every Rule.

My Writers’ Secrets Series Explained

Whether it’s a book, a song or painting, chances are (if you are anything like me) you might’ve wondered: what the heck were they thinking? I do this all the time!

I also do a LOT of research and obsessing when I write. And fortunately for me, my writing tool of choice (stay tuned for more on this in Writers’ Secret post #2) goes a long way in making note-taking easy.

So, I’m starting a series of posts on my blog (hurray for inaugural blog posts!) to share some little details about my books, some of thoughts, and even scenes that did quite make the cut. The series will be tagged Writers’ Secrets.

First Series tidbit: U R Fever was originally written as a prequel to another of my erotic romance novels about Brianna and Alan. I began writing the first story in 2013 and it takes place one year after they met.

The Right Woman and its follow on story, Break Every Rule were written afterwards.
