After a year of partying, Sam decides to buckle down and focus on college. Things are going great until a one-night stand leaves her pregnant and alone. Raising a child while going to school isn’t easy, but Sam is determined to be strong for her daughter. She doesn’t have time for guys or relationships, and takes great care to protect her child and her heart.
Judd doesn’t fit the mold of a college ballplayer. His long hair and tattoos may fit the life he’s created for himself, but baseball is the one thing he takes seriously. When he meets Sam, he’s immediately drawn to her curves and refusal to put up with his crap. When Judd learns the truth, can he handle the responsibility that comes with loving a single mother?
Sam yearns for the fire that Judd fuels in her, but her child’s needs have to come first. Can two people at different stages in their life find a way to make a life together?

She is a lover of romance, family, and friends, and enjoys incorporating those things in what she writes. When she isn’t reading or writing, she loves spending time with her husband and children, traveling whenever possible.
My friend Jaime Morrow and her sister Erin Funk created the WHAT’S UP WEDNESDAY meme. Here’s Jaime’s explanation about it: “It’s similar in some respects to the Currently… post, but it’s been whittled down to only four headings to make it quicker and more manageable on a weekly basis. You’re invited to join us if you’re looking for something to blog about, a way to let your blog friends know what’s been going on with you.”
WHAT I’M READING
I finished Eyre House by Cait Greer on Monday night. It’s amazing and I’m sorry it took me so long to read it – but I was too busy.
Last night, I started Obsession by Jennifer L. Armentrout because a publicist from Entangled asked me to. But … it was on my TBR list and I do like Jenn and her writing very much, so I would probably get to it at some point anyway.
WHAT I’M WRITING
Last week, I wrote 22k words and I finally finished Breaking the Reins … yay! At first, I thought I could wrap the story at 60-70k words … turns out I typed The End with 94k words! Crazy …
Yesterday, I got an editorial letter from my editor and now I’m working on a plan for revisions. I have to get these revision back to my editor by July 1st – which means my first 2 weeks of Ready. Set. Write! will be spent revising.
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
Music as always. This one has been on repeat lately:
ALSO, Monday evening I (my writing, actually) got compliments from two different editors – it was great and it lifted my spirits a lot. I wish I could quote them here …
WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO
I took the kid to a birthday party on Sunday and they had an animal show … bunnies, hedgehogs, lizards and snakes! And … the kids could pet them all – including getting a hug from the snake. Here’s my kid:
My mom almost fainted when she saw that photo lol
Whatelse? Hubs was travelling for the last three days, which made the house considerably less noisy … I do hate it when he travels :(
I exercise everyday religiously, including Sat and Sun, but yesterday I just couldn’t. My lower back was killing me and it’s starting to bug me to the point I think I should see a doctor. I know my posture hasn’t been great since I had to stop dancing ballet, but I guess it has been getting worse and worse with time …
And I can’t think of nothing else ;)
Now tell me, WHAT’S UP WITH YOU?
Don’t forget to stop by Jaime’s post and check out the linky of the awesome writers who are participating of this meme!
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
There are two things you should know about Kalli Perkins.
1. She’d rather do it in public than be alone with a guy.
2. She loves her little brothers more than her mom does.
Kalli doesn’t pretend to be a good girl. At nineteen, she’s never been in love and doesn’t ever intend to be. She has her issues handled. She’s managed to keep the secret of what happened to her nine years ago from her mother, although her mother’s usually high anyway and barely notices Kalli or her little brothers.
One night at a party, Kalli makes a bet with her friend, Nate, that could change everything. Their friend, Scout, tells them there’s no uncrossing the friendship line once it’s crossed—even though they were both drunk. But Kalli can’t imagine how anyone could want her damaged self for anything more.
She didn’t count on Nate. Nate’s very capable of satisfying her not only under her clothes, but in her heart, too.
She just doesn’t know it yet.

She gets a thrill when her readers are emotional reading her stories, and gets even more of a kick when they tell her so. She’s strangely imaginative, spends too much time on her computer, and is certifiably crazy when she works on her fiction.
Rebecca Berto lives in Melbourne, Australia with her boyfriend and their doggy.
