Cutters Vs. Jocks (Chicago Series Book 1)

"Palpable binding love, built on trust, torn assunder."
Amazon Reviewer 
   

Love at first sight versus lust you can't fight.

Libby Tucker is a cutter--a nobody waitress in a college town--at least that's what everyone believes. But admission to law school is Libby's ticket out of Indiana and her escape from small town life forever.

During a night on the town, Libby beats the most competitive athlete on campus at pool and draws more attention from him than she's prepared for.

Aidan Palowski is one of those jocks your friends warned you about--the kind that never loose--the kind that put notches in their baseball bats. As the closing pitcher on the best baseball team in the Big Ten, he's on his way to the major leagues. Aidan always gets what he wants and Libby is the final home run he wants to hit out of the park.

The last thing Libby needs is to get sidetracked by a superstar jock. Afraid that she might be on a collision course with love at first sight Libby keeps her distance, but the longer she holds out the more Aidan realizes it's a case of lust he can't fight.

What happens when worthy opponents refuse to play their hearts out?

Binding Arbitration (Chicago Series Book 2)

“…equal parts heart-tugging and steamy...” ~Kirkus Reviews

Through the corridors of the Windy City’s criminal courts, single mother Libby Tucker knows exactly how far she’ll go to save her cancer-stricken son’s life. The undefeated defense attorney is prepared to fight, but the cost of this victory requires revisiting old heartache.

Seven years ago, Libby had a one night stand with Aidan Palowski that ended in a pregnancy and him deserting her at their college graduation. Libby has worked her backside bare for everything she’s attained, while Aidan has been indulged since he landed in a pile of Gold Coast money. Libby fears asking Aidan to live up to his biological duty could jeopardize the only thing the jock worships: his celebrity baseball career. But when Aidan learns about his son’s desperate need, it pricks open the wound he’s carried since he abandoned Libby and the child.

All Libby needs is a little anonymous DNA, but Aidan wants to recapture all he lost the day he walked away from her. There’s more to settle between Aidan and Libby than heartache, redemption, and forgiveness because Libby might not be able to save her son without sacrificing her own heart.

 A woman who makes a splash in the boardroom or the bedroom.

Tricia is the Master of Many Trades, but her public relations business is tanking. If Tricia doesn’t hook a big-time client soon, not only will she be evicted from her office building, she’s going to lose every penny she’s already invested. When Fletch makes her an offer to pose as his ‘date’ for the weekend, she can’t refuse the money.

Sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn't end in Vegas.


Praise
"Powerful. Where Cutters Vs Jocks is about fear, love and mistakes of the young, proud and selfish; Binding Arbitration is about forgiving, loving and overcoming fear. Both are about love, pain and loss but on a much different level." The Book Runner
“…equal parts heart-tugging and steamy...” ~Kirkus Reviews
"Elizabeth stunned me with her character development. She made me feel as though I knew each of them on a personable level. They were my friends, my enemies, my children. Elizabeth took her time, she did not rush, she did not pretty up…she kept them realistic and there was no sugarcoating. She made me feel, she made me love, she made me break. She made me evaluate, she made me think, and she made me cry…no actually she made me sob. She left me speechless at times, raw at others and so, so angry occasionally. She gave me all I could ever want in a story, a movie…a life. She gave me life within the confines of a book binding. She gave me realism with 26 letters and some punctuation. She gave me inspiration." REDE
