Publication Date: December 15, 2015
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00014]

Sex doesn’t have to come with strings attached. The picking of who and where on a moment’s whim is the ultimate control. No names, no exchanging of numbers, and repeat encounters are most definitely out of the question.

Keeping life simple and forthright are Ivy’s daily goals. She believes love is for the weak and naive. A vexatious burden she chooses to avoid. The notorious, cutthroat CEO of Hardt Beat Fashion Magazine refuses to waste her time on people who don’t serve a purpose.

When Ivy enters a seductive new club looking for her next brief hook up, she collides with Greyson—the biggest paradox she has ever encountered. He’s out to live life to the fullest. Hot women, bottle service, and blood-pumping music is a nightly occurrence for the skilled, headlining DJ.

At first touch, they have nothing in common but skin-biting, adrenaline-filled, mind-shattering sex. Is that enough for a repeat performance? Their palpable pull is a new experience for the casual twosome. And Greyson’s erotic pursuit makes it difficult for Ivy to initially say no.

When their attraction constrains Ivy’s glass-like exterior, she insists on creating ground rules. Rules are made for protection, but as we all know, rules are also made to be broken, and Greyson won’t stop till he breaks every single one.


I am a total book whore. I can’t get enough of my book boyfriends! Just when I think I’m totally in love with one of them, I start another book and fall in love again. It’s a vicious cycle, but I wouldn’t want it any other way. I am a reader first and a writer second. It has always been that way and I don’t ever plan on changing it. So if you are an author and would like me to read your work, please feel free to send it my way!!

Title: The Joy of Comfort Eating
Author: Suzanne Jefferies
Series: Standalone
Genre: Chick Lit/Romance/Erotica
Publisher: Fire Quill Publishing
Release Date: Nov 17
Edition/Formats: eBook & Print
It’s the worst day of Charlie Everson’s life. Not only can she no longer fit into her clothes—disaster for any public relations director—but also her first love, the sexy super-successful Brian Tendai, is her new CEO, the last person she ever expected to run into. Seeing him again tumbles Charlie back into her past. There are still so many unanswered questions: he’s convinced she left him, she’s convinced he left her. Charlie minimizes the ‘ex’ factor. Tell that to her emotions that are running wild.
But Brian’s not there to rekindle their romance. He’s overseeing Queenswood Communications’ recent merger after a hostile takeover. Guess whose name is at the top of the list?
They agree to one night together, just the one, then it’s back to business as normal. Or is it?

The Joy of Comfort Eating is a contemporary romance novel set in cosmopolitan Johannesburg.

Excerpt 1

Welcome to the worst day of my life. What the hell do I wear?

CHARLIE EVERSON SURVEYED HER CLOTHES CLOSET—a three-sided cubicle—with two sections of hanging space, and row upon row of wooden shelves harboring multi-colored garments.


The wrong size.

Or were once the right size. Back then. But that was then. Now her clothes needed to be bigger, roomier, like marshmallows blown up in the microwave. One size up. No, two sizes up. Even three sizes. Sizes less revealing of the flesh that lay beneath.

It’s not like he’d remember her. Besides, plenty of people were called Brian Tendai. Weren’t they? It was probably a coincidence.

Charlie rooted through a pile of casual shirts slumped against the side of the closet. They smelled of wet wood and Angel by Thierry Mugler. Extracting a crumpled, black tank top with white deodorant marks staining the underarms, she sniffed the fabric before throwing it onto her bed. Then, from another pile that had given up the fight, she found a matching black short sweater—wrinkled. The sweater landed on the tank top with a soft plop, not unlike the sound of a soft serve vanilla, molding into a sugar cone.

Fate wouldn’t drag him back to her in the form of her new boss, now would it? No one had such a sick sense of humor.

Charlie groaned as she spotted her rounded body, a reflection of white flesh sculpted into vase-like curves. For a split second, her eyes registered the slackness of her stomach. She slammed the image shut, tugging her gray panties up around her ass. No wonder James didn’t come around as much as he used to. Who’d blame him?

Scuttling over to her purse, she yanked out a Snickers bar, took a bite, replaced the wrapper, and stuffed it back into the purse.

And, if it was the same Brian, he was probably married with two-point-four children by now. And had a beer belly. And had aged about forty years or so. Though he’d only be thirty now, give or take.

Out came the Snickers bar. One more bite.

Put it back, Everson, put it back.

The Snickers bar retreated.

Besides, that Brian Tendai was there to slice and dice his way through the Queenswood staff. It could not possibly be her Brian. Well, just Brian now. Not hers, not anymore.

Dragging the tank top off the bed, she pulled it over her hair. She then tossed on the black sweater, tugged at a loose thread, and surveyed herself in the mirror when she noticed the nametag hanging out. Off went the sweater, before she put it on the correct way around.

Maybe I should wear a suit. Look professional?

James always pointed out that she could probably do a bit more toward addressing her corporate image. James would. He looked as though he’d been born with a collar and tie.

Her suit hung, pin-striped and pressed. Best she look professional. Pin-striped, pressed and tiny. Far too tiny.

She checked her phone. Still no missed calls. No WhatsApp messages. No nothing. James hadn’t called all weekend. It was so over with him. Just as soon as she worked up the guts to actually tell him.

Charlie tugged again at the loose thread on the sweater, this time managing to snap it off causing the material to pucker at the cuff.

Out came the Snickers bar. Nibble, nibble, picking the chocolate off the top. Then, one, two, three, she devoured the whole thing. Charlie checked the empty wrapper for any renegade chocolate dregs before stuffing it into the far depths of her purse.

With her fingers, she snapped at her pantie elastic. Then, flicking through the Rolodex of skinny person pants hanging in her closet, she wondered about wearing jeans.

Shouldn’t have eaten that. This is no doubt why James hasn’t called or WhatsAppe’d.

Hadn’t he mentioned just the other day that it might be an idea for her to actually use her gym membership?

Charlie turned to her pile of folded skirts, passing the hanging rail of skirts altogether, choosing a denim patchwork skirt. Like the folds of a hot air balloon, it curved up at the waist and fell to calf-length. Perfect.

Wriggling and wiggling, the zip refused to budge. Sliding around on her unmade bed, sinking into the feathery duvet, she heaved in her stomach, tucking her flesh under the folds of the skirt.

A straight jacket of denim.

Now shoes.

Row upon row of shoes rose up from the dusty wood floor. Red stilettos, gold gladiator sandals with a beaded finish, black velvet lace-ups with blue satin bows, red suede knee-length riding boots, and pale pink flip-flops—like prawn cocktail spooned into clam shells.

Charlie picked out one of her few pairs of flat shoes; black, shiny patent, backless brothel creepers that slap-clacked on the floor.

“Anytime you’re ready,” called a voice from downstairs. Shelley. Housemate.

After a quick rifle through the jewelry box for the requisite gold hoops, she glanced in the mirror. A fat stranger looked back. Dragging her wet towel off the floor, she hurled it over the mirror.

Her tongue swept over her mouth, the chocolate taste lingering between her teeth.

Shelley’s voice was a whip crack. “Charlie, if we don’t leave, we’re going to hit the damn Jo’burg traffic.”

Charlie moved.

Shelley stood in the kitchen, a pristine vision in a whiter-than-white pressed shirt, and black pants ironed into submission, tapping her neatly clad shoe on the floor as she rapped out her passive resentment.

“I was ready ages ago,” Shelley replied, dragging the word out whilst pouring the remainder of her undrunk coffee down the sink, watching as the steady flow of liquid dribbled away. “Do you mind if we stop at Woolworths on our way?”

Charlie eyed up a crème egg that sat next to the microwave.

“And, Charlie, remember today’s an important day,” said Shelley, following Charlie’s gaze.

“I hadn’t forgotten,” said Charlie, lifting an apple from the fruit bowl.

“It’s so exciting, all the changes with the merger.”

“Gripping. Let’s go, then,” Charlie muttered, finding her car keys and making for the door.

“And what do you think our new CEO, Brian Tendai’s, like?”

His name on her lips.

WLK synopsis


Not even his mother’s funeral can convince self-proclaimed party boy Zach Johnson to tone down his snark or think about settling down. He is who he is, and he refuses to change for anyone. When straight-laced, compassionate Aaron Paulson claims he’s falling for him, Zach is certain Aaron sees him as another project, one more lost soul for the idealistic Aaron to save. But Zach doesn’t need to be fixed, and he refuses to be with someone who sees him as broken.

Patience is one of Aaron’s many virtues. He has waited years for a man who can share his heart and complete his life, and he insists Zach is the one. Pride, fear, and old hurts wither in the wake of Aaron’s adoring loyalty, and as Zach reevaluates his perceptions of love and family, he finds himself tempted to believe in the impossible: a happily ever after.
