Well this is freaking great…
Right when my best friend’s wedding was in full swing, the flowers were paid for, the dresses were being tailored and the bachelorette party was planned and nonrefundable, the bomb gets dropped right on my doorstep at four in the morning.
“The Wedding is OFF!” Mags yelled right as I opened the door to my apartment.
Oh hell no! We’re not canceling these plans. I will make this work. I will get her and Randy on track to walking down that freaking aisle. I am getting to go on a bachelorette weekend vacation to party with my best friend! This is happening whether Mags and Randy like it or not.
That’s what a best friend is for, right?!
**This Book is a Standalone** It is a companion novella to The Crashing Series and takes place before Crashing Back Down (book 1 in the series).
Crashing: The Wedding is now free everywhere!

I grabbed his shoulder, pulling my new fiancĂ© in for a kiss. “Fuck them. When you find true love, wasting time is pointless.”

“God, I love you.” Kyle crushed our lips together, pulling me on top of him.

After a few minutes of holding each other, Kyle’s alarm started going off on his phone. “Shit!” He shot up out of bed. “I’m going to be late for my shift.”

“But baby, we just got engaged. Call in sick so we can lay in bed all day and celebrate, maybe bust out the Kama Sutra and see if we can find something new to try.”

Pulling up his pants, Kyle made his way back over to the bed where I was trying my hardest to do a good pouting face. “I’ll be home before dinner. You find something you want to try and I will be all yours by sunset.”

He ran out of the house and I dove into the shower. Right as I was turning off the water and getting ready to towel off, Mags’ ringtone started blaring on the counter. I hopped out, excited to tell my best friend my amazing news.

“Hey Mags, guess what!” All I could hear was her sniffling and her light cries in the background. “Mags?”

“Hey, Cali. You had something to tell me?” Her voice was weak and shaking.

I wrapped my dripping body in a towel. “No, you first. I can wait.” She started bawling and howling into the phone. “What is it love?”

“Randy.” Her voice trembled.

“Yeah, what about Randy?” Panic started to settle in as a text from Mitch came through.

Mitch: You need to get to Mags’ house right now. Something is really wrong.

“Mags, hang on. I will be right over.”
You want to know more about me? Well, let's see...

I am just an average twenty-something following my dreams.  I have a full time "day job" and by night I am an author.  I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those).  I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world.

A portion of all my profits are donated to The Marcie Mazzola Foundation.

Excerpt:

She peeked around the paper rack at the cowboy standing in the front of her store. He was tall, easily six foot. His shoulders were broad, his arms well muscled. A pair of work gloves tucked in his back pockets drew her eyes to his butt. Red dust covered his black cowboy hat, and his boots were scuffed. Yes, yes, yes, she thought, he was a real cowboy.

She scooped up the box of supplies and smiled around the pencil in her teeth. Something dark and fuzzy came into her field of vision, from below, right across the top of the box. Her focus shifted from the cowboy to the thing crawling across the box clutched to her breast.

Spider!!

She screamed. She pitched the box and the contents flew through the air. The spider moved fast across the old linoleum tiles, straight towards her.

She climbed on top of the folding table and squatted there. Its two front legs felt in front of it, as if it were trying to find her.

She was so focused on the spider, she didn’t see the others. Wasn’t even aware that she was not alone in the shop, until she heard Midge’s voice.


“Good grief, stop screaming, would you?”

And she saw him. The cowboy. It took a moment to remember his name. Aidan. That was it. Aidan.

Calm as could be, he walked over, picked up a piece of paper and scooped the spider up. It jerked a bit, then froze. Aidan strode to the front door. Gina stood up on the table and watched as he opened the door, squatted down and tipped the paper. Stunned, she stood and watched. She’d never seen anyone do that before.

It’s been two years since she walked away, and he’s still hurting. It’s been two years since Mia Callahan ran headfirst toward her career leaving him to pick up the pieces of his broken heart. 
Tyler Cook has everything he ever wanted. He’s living in a luxurious apartment and working at one of New York’s most prestigious law firms, all while becoming one of the city’s biggest playboys. Women flock to him, and he promises them nothing in return. The more they give, the more he takes. Even though it doesn’t help fill the hole she left in his heart. 
One moment can change your life. A few words can send it down a path you never planned, careening toward someone you don’t truly want. 
What happens when Mia comes back and he isn’t the same man she left behind? Will she accept him for who he has become? Can he find the man he was, the man she left? Can he forgive her for walking away? 
Sometimes we have to go back to the beginning to realize what we had in the first place.

"I felt every thing that Tyler and Mia felt. Every up and down, every smile, every tear, every laugh and every anger. This book literally ripped my heart out, put it in a heavy duty blender on high and then pieced it back together again. I love second chance books and this one just moved to the top of that list." ~Tabitha (Amazeballs Book Reviews)
"I am falling hard for the Cook brothers each one seems to be better. I loved Taylor but Tyler is giving him a run for his money. I also enjoyed Mia’s spirit and determination." ~Melinda (Twinsie Talk Book Reviews)
