Between Brothers

Available on:



Reckless, dangerous, and out of control; these are the words most often applied to the SHMC’s brother Duracell. Which is why no one can understand what the deal is between him and Blue. Blue is none of those things; if anything he’s quiet, shy, and as mild-mannered as they come. There’s no balance between these two yet they are inexplicably a team. Then Blue gets a single look at Hayley, and it’s all it takes for him to know she’s their third.

Is Hayley the woman for them? A match for Blue sure, but strong enough to withstand the bizarre tempest of Cell’s personality? The two MC brothers have set their sights on the waitress and have been patiently feeling her out. Now it’s time to take the next step and see if she’s indeed able to date the both of them.

She’ll either bring balance to the boys, or Cell’s pull will knock them all off balance sending them crashing,  burning them all out before anything can even fully ignite.

Diary of a Book Coming Together:

1/19/17: Well, the prologue is finished, let’s see where this one takes me shall we? One thing is for sure, Cell’s a douche.

2/7/17: Had to put this on pause for a bit so I could focus on getting some other projects completed and launched. I’m about to start traveling again, so it will be a bit before I com back to this, but when I do it will be in earnest to get it through to completion.

3/15/17: I am into chapter four but chapter three was giving me fits, and still kind of is… I have just so much that needs to be packed into this book in order for the reader to understand the relationship that I’m having to somewhat gloss over a few things to get to the heart of it and the ball rolling. I’m just hoping that people remember that these three have known each other for over a year now, so they’ve got somewhat of a foundation before they take the final plunge.

3/18/17: Been a few hard days of writing but solid progress is being made. I’m probably a quarter of the way or more through the book as a whole. It’s one of the more challenging writes I’ve had to do so far, but the challenge is fun.

3/21/17: First sexy times has gone down. They’re pretty hot if I do say so myself. Time for the semi-awkward morning after bit and to figure out where to go from here.

3/28/17: I’ve been going pretty hard and I’m not about to quit. I’m at 57,000 words give or take and am heading into the downhill slide. I have some heavy emotional shit to go through with these characters and I’m going to sleep on it before I get into it tomorrow. Overall, I am pleased with where this book is going and am looking forward to seeing where it goes from here.

4/1/17: Well, it went off to the beta readers last night and topped out at around 85,000 words when all was said and done. I’m pretty pleased with it and am just waiting on reactions. Hopefully, it conveys what I was hoping it would.

    I just finished the book – AJ you knocked it outta the park! I loved the complexity of these three characters. I don’t want to give anything away so I’ll wait awhile to comment more. It is definitely an exciting book that I could not put down. The sex scenes are super hot and I fell in love with the characters….yes even Cell.
