Her books have it all: wicked humor, sexy rockers and rocker-adjacent hotties, hilariously mortifying “meet cutes” (“meet awkwards”?), and good, fun sexy times! Among TNers, her Stage Dive series has infamously triggered a multi-year feud between #teamMal and #teamDavid – a seething conflict that makes tensions between our President and Kim Jong Un look like a playground spat.
Do not #teamDavid me, bish. #TEAMMAL!
The Dive Bar series follows former tour mates of Stage Dive who have decided to hang up their instruments and return to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and run a dive bar called, ya know, Dive Bar.
In Dirty, former guitarist Vaughan returns to his childhood home after his band breaks up, only to discover runaway bride Lydia in his bathtub after she learns of her groom-to-be’s extracurricular activities with his best man. Twist tells the tale of Joe Collins, who has been wooing Alexandra using his famous brother Eric’s persona, only to have things fall apart when Alexandra surprises Eric at his birthday party, and he’s like:
Awkwardness ensues all around.
Chaser is the third in the series, and tells playboy Eric’s tale:
“Given his well-earned bad boy reputation, Eric is having a tough time scoring.. When single Jean moves to town, she seems heaven sent by the sex gods.
Only problem is, she not only wants nothing to do with him, but it turns out that she’s pregnant.
Starting over in a small town, Jean is determined to turn her wild lifestyle around and be the kind of mother she always wished she’d had. Since local bar owner and all round hottie, Eric Collins, is now determined to steer clear of her pregnant self, it should be easy. When she goes into labour during a snow storm and her car slides on some ice, it’s Eric who comes to the rescue.
There seems to be a bond between them now, but is it enough? And can Eric give up his manwhore ways to be the man Jean needs?”
WELL, CAN HE? And, more importantly, will Eric be the man to finally cure me of my Mal-addiction?
