25,000 Likes Giveaway!


YOU GUYS!!!!  I cannot believe I have 25,000 Facebook likes on my author page!  Holy cow!  Before I get to that, there are a few updates I need to give you.

1. I’ve gotten a bunch of messages regarding the 4th book in the Playing With Fire series, Closer to the Edge. As you might have noticed, it did not come out in May like it was originally supposed to. One of the downsides of being an author is having entirely too many ideas swimming around in your brain. As I was writing Closer to the Edge a few months ago, I had a dream about Burned. It hit me so hard that I HAD to put Closer to the Edge aside for the time being. Since C2tE is the final book in this series, I want it to be amazing. I want to end the series as perfectly as I can for all of you. I felt like I was forcing myself to continue writing this story and that is NOT a good way to write. I need to write what I feel and what I’m passionate about and for the time being, that was Burned. Don’t worry, I’m going to be getting back to C2tE VERY soon!  You will definitely have this final book in the series by the end of the year. To tide you over, you can check out the Closer to the Edge Pinterest page 🙂


2. I don’t know if you saw on Facebook and Twitter last week, but I surprised a book club by showing up at their meeting instead of Skyping them like I was supposed to 🙂 You can check out the video of the entire thing here:


3. I wrote a special, deleted scene for Burned. Did you guys read it yet?!  If not, you can find it here: Burned Deleted Scene

Hello Sex Toys!







Something totally awesome happened to me in the last few weeks. My publicist received an email from the sex toy company Hello Cheri, asking if I’d like to partner with them.


They are going to send me products to test and I will tell you all about them. How awesome is that???!  Hubs and I are already preferred customers at every sex toy store in a 50 mile radius, so this is a dream come true!!  The best part, they are giving me coupon codes for my fans to use!!  WEEEEEEEEE!!!

Take a look at the first item they sent me:

It’s called the Hello Bead, glass toy. It’s so pretty I almost didn’t want to touch it. I was tempted to stick it on a shelf with a spotlight on it, like a fancy vase. Now, I know what you’re thinking: Tara, this is made of glass. Glass and my vagina DO NOT MIX. That’s a bloody massacre waiting to happen. What if it breaks and shards of glass are IN MY VAGINA??!!!

Okay, maybe it’s just me thinking that. But, it’s okay. It’s made of Pyrex, not glass. You could bang this thing against a concrete wall and it won’t break. So, unless your vagina is made of concrete, you’re good to go.

It has 4 large beads and a g-spot friendly tip. G-SPOT FRIENDLY! Hello, g-spot, nice to meet you.

Another advantage of it being made out of pyrex, if you’re a mother, like myself, and you’re constantly being interrupted by little voices during sex asking you what you’re doing, what’s for dinner, why the door’s locked, etc. – you can easily unlock the door and smack them over the head with this durable punishment stick!

I kid, I kid. This toy should never be used as a weapon. Unless you’re unleashing the awesomeness of it to detonate your vagina. BOOM!

The 2nd product they sent me is the Hello Surrender, bondage tie.

With its soft, satin texture, this is a pain-free way to tie up your partner and have a little fun with them!  Or, it’s a pain-free way to tie up your children so none of the above happens.  WIN-WIN!

So, if anyone would like to check out Hello Cheri and their awesome product line, just use the following code when you are checking out: HELLOFANS

Happy shopping!

Seventeen years old when he broke my heart.
Seventeen days later when another picked up the pieces.
Seventeen years together.
Seventeen thousand problems.
Seventeen days of reliving my past and finding a new future.
Seventeen minutes until it all went up in flames.
Seventeen breaths until I took my last.
This is my story…and it’s going to burn.
