“I thought I knew what I wanted but someone forgot to tell me that you have to embrace the ugly in a relationship in order to appreciate the beauty of what you have created between another person and yourself. The following is what happens when you think you can take a short cut but in life, as in love, easy doesn’t come without difficulty, and if you want love to survive, you have to fight for it each and every day.” – Sydney Lundvik
Syd and Kaz survived getting together in the most unusual of ways, a rigorous world tour and his crazy ex-wife but their relationship will be tested more than they ever thought was possible. Now that Sydney is expecting their first child and they are engaged, demons from Kaz’s past rear their ugly head and cause a catalyst that will spin their world completely out of control.
Kaz reacts in the only way he knows how and that is to shut down his emotions while contemplating a deal for Scarlet Fever that could set them up for life and finally give them the stability they need.
Meanwhile, Syd reacts to the situation in a way that is completely unbecoming and may spell the end of their relationship and the happy ending she has craved for so long.
Can two people—who have gone through the fires of lust and love—reconnect with what brought them together in the first place and make peace not only with themselves and each other or will the pressure prove too great and tear them apart for good?
This is the explosive conclusion to one of the most exciting and twisted love affairs in rock history.

Just in case you are wondering why I have been so quiet, I am hard at work on Rock My Heart, which will premiere on Friday, August 30th. It might seem easy to slip back into the world of rock and roll and begin the Scarlet Fever Series but if I am honest, it hasn't been.
Out From Under took a lot out of me, emotionally speaking, and because there is left over angst, Rock My Heart will not be as light and fluffy as the One More Night Trilogy. It will have some very dark and intense aspects to it and yes, there will be some infidelity. This isn't a spoiler, just letting you know what to prepare for.
Before you curse me and call me a bitch for changing up your favorite characters, realize Kaz and Syd didn't get together conventionally so nothing about their relationship was ever just going to settle into domestic bliss without any issues. They both have their own inner demons to fight and that is what this story is about.
No, I will not save the infidelity to the last fifty pages so there is a quick resolution, all is forgiven and all is well. It will take up a lot of space in this novel because people do stray and couples do have to work through issues.
This is Kaz and Syd's happy ending but I am not going to hand it over on a silver platter though there won't be drama for the sake of drama either. I want them to feel real, to be real and for you, the reader, to want to see them work out their issues.
Now...moving on...I have handed out quite a few ARCs of Out From Under and I know many of you have bought the book too.
I am so excited if you liked this book and left a review on Goodreads. Thank you because you didn't have to say anything at all. However, I also need some reviews on Amazon too so I am holding a contest for 5 ARC copies of Rock My Heart. This contest will only last two weeks and you have the opportunity to benefit just by leaving a review on Amazon for Out From Under.
If you bought it from Kobo or B&N, you're still eligible. If you left a review at those places or only Goodreads, all you have to do is copy and paste.
Now, I would prefer those who enjoyed the book to leave reviews but if you just thought it was meh and gave it 3 to 3.5 stars, then that is fine as well. I am not going to shoot you or think you are an awful person just because you didn't enjoy this book as well as some of my other novels. It is what it is.
However, your help is always appreciated and reviews do drive sales. I will always be grateful for all my readers so leave a review and get a chance at winning an ARC for Rock My Heart. You would get the book Sunday, August 25th...5 days before it was available for purchase. Now, if that isn't a reason to use copy and paste then I don't know what is! ;-)
