Y.O.L.O….You Only Live Once…
Derrick’s life has thrown him a curveball. Prepaing to start a new life and leave his past behind, he pushes everything aside and does something with no regrets. He downs a couple of shots of whiskey and well….Y.O.L.O!
“For starters, you can get a lap dance for five, but if you really want a show….” She leaned forward, intentionally resting her breasts on my arm and whispered some very suggestive deeds in my ear.
The rational part of my mind said no, that I should swallow my drinks and catch a cab home. No amount of money spent tonight would ease the pain of what I was feeling.
The irrational and rather horny part said to hell with reason. This was my last night in Charlotte before moving to Georgia and starting over. Who gave a damn about what I did tonight?
Not my parents. Not me, and certainly not the ho that had just licked my ear.
“Why the hell not? You only live once.”

About the novel….
When Derrick’s brother drives the family business into bankruptcy, Derrick is left without a job and only one choice: start over. With a new job waiting in Atlanta, the only other thing he’s looking for is a woman who’s willing to fit his no-strings-attached relationship policy. But then he runs into Kelli, a woman with a smart mouth who challenges him in every way. She’d be perfect … if it weren’t for the fact she had kids.
Shortly after giving birth to her son, Kelli’s husband announced that he wanted a divorce. Forced to move in with her newlywed sister, Kelli is faced with raising two young children on her own, finding affordable housing, and landing a job that will pay her bills. The last thing she needs or wants is a man in her life. But when her brother-in-law’s best friend shows up for dinner, it’s impossible to ignore the sexual attraction.
Fate and finances have another plan, though, forcing them into living under the same roof. Despite their differences, Derrick finds himself breaking his own relationship rules. But as his luck would have it, just when he thinks he’s ready to make a commitment, tragedy strikes close to home and, with it, issues from his past that force him to risk it all.
