HOW/WHY Barely Contained Came About:

Things are hellish and chaotic right now, and people are home more than ever stressing about things they cannot control. I wanted to do something for readers that extended beyond making my book being free. My goal is to give readers something to look forward to each week and put a funny spin on the quarantine madness that a lot of people have been experiencing lately.

One thing about my writing style is that I take these absolutely shitty situations and use my humor and wit to make the misery more tolerable. What better time to do that than now? If not for my own sanity, then for others who are in similar situations.

Without further ado, I give you Barely Contained.


When quarantine strikes, who would you want to be stuck with?

For Liam Turner, the last person on his list would be Honey Montgomery, his little sister’s best friend. Her upbeat attitude and quirky nature would normally be a turn off for sensible Liam, but thanks to this virus and social distancing, he’s suddenly finding Honey’s ways incredibly sexy and even endearing.

After all, the forbidden fruit always tastes the sweetest and Honey is as forbidden as it comes.

Liam knows he must resist cracking the seal on the jar and getting the smallest taste of Honey, but when you’re trapped with the one who tempts you, containment may no longer be an option.

*Note: I am not downplaying the virus nor dismissing it. I am doing what I do best and using humor to process everything.

MAKE SURE to check THIS FRIDAY for the first installment!
