Find on Goodreads
Carrie Maynard has come a long way from the awkward teenager who sat in front of the most popular boy in calculus class. She’s now a young, independent woman with a great job, a loving boyfriend, and a close knit family. But something still seems to missing.
Jason Wilder is no longer the cute teenage boy that Carrie crushed on from high school. He is now a hardworking, handsome man and one of Carrie’s very best friends. He is the perfect guy just looking for his perfect girl. Uncertain that he’s actually found her in his girlfriend, Ashley, he goes through the motions, hoping she will fill the void Carrie has left in his heart, ever since the day they met back in high school.
When circumstances change and feelings can no longer be ignored, will Carrie continue to sit on the sidelines, watching someone else live out the future with the boy she loved from so long ago, or will she take the next step with the man that’s always owned her heart?
Sometimes taking a risk for love isn’t always easy.
Sometimes even the strongest of friendships are put to the test.
Sometimes it’s easier to walk away when life takes us down a different path than the one our heart intended.

Review by Jen Skewes

After reading When the Chips Are Down I think my first question was when are Carrie and Jason getting their own book?  Ok maybe I asked for Cam first but that is the next book in this series.  But anyway I fell in love with the two of them.  And even though they were friends only, I wanted them to be so much more.  They are just so adorably cute together.  Beth Rinyu not only gave me what I wanted by writing their story but she gave me everything I could have hoped for when it came to Carrie and Jason

Jason and Carrie have been friends since high school.  Carrie was the awkward, smart teenager while Jason was the popular jock.  But when they first met there was a connection between them.  And together they have had the most amazing friendship.  It’s the kind of friendship that you dream of having as a teenager, one that lasts forever.  Jason and Carrie aren’t just friends, they are best friends.  They are always there for each other no matter what.  They find comfort in each other and can confide in each other about anything.  

It is years later and they still have that special bond.  Carrie is dating Jason’s best friend and Jason is back with his ex Ashley.  Their significant others are honestly two people we really do not need to discuss.  lol  While I Loved Jason and Carrie as friends I wanted to know when they would finally realize that they were in love with each other.  When was Jason going to dump his girlfriend and go after the only woman that he has ever truly loved?  And when would Carrie realize that her current boyfriend was not her perfect guy, Jason was. Everything that they ever wanted was right in front of them but they just needed to figure it our for themselves.  And when they do I could not have been happier.  But you do wonder can it be that easy?   Can two best friends just become lovers and everything is ok?  Or will something come between them?  Not going to say a word.  Read this amazing story for yourself and see exactly what happens between Carrie and Jason. 

Jason and Carrie are one of the cutest couples together.  I always love a friends to lovers romance.  It is one of my favorite.  But these two just has something so special that I absolutely loved.  They were best friends for so long.  And I think everyone around them knew how they felt about each other except them.  As the reader you could see how important they were to each other.  Jason is one of those guys that is sweet and adorable and would do anything for Carrie.  I loved him and I loved Arriver.  So of course together they fit together like two perfect pieces of a puzzle.  Once again Beth completely sucked me in from the beginning.  I did not want to put this book down and was so sad when it was all over.  I loved that we still got to see our favorite characters from book 1.  This is a wonderful sweet story about two best friends who finally realize that they are more than just friends.  Another amazing job by Ms. Rinyu.  Now I cant wait for Cam and Gia's book

 “I have memories of you that I’ll use to embarrass you in front of your kids.”
“Hey, just remember I’ve got some dirt on you too, so watch what secrets you’re giving away.”
“Yeah, I know! Do you remember that night?” She let out a slight giggle. “When I threw myself at you?”
"Yup, I do. How could I forget? My dad busting in my room the next morning."
We both began to laugh until tears were rolling down her face.
"Yeah, too bad I couldn't laugh about it like that back then. I was scared to death that my mom was gonna kill me!"
"You never did tell much trouble did you get in for that?"
"Not much at all. My mom was surprisingly pretty cool about it. My dad, well.... he eventually got over it."
"That was a classic."
"Do you ever regret not taking me up on the offer of being my first?"
"No." I lied. I regretted it every day. I wanted to be her first, I wanted to be her last, and I wanted to be everything in between. We were so young back then. It would have never lasted, and Carrie and I wouldn't have the strong relationship that we do now if we had taken that step. We both needed time to grow, to experience new things with different people before we made that type of commitment. Now, here we were, older, wiser and both committed to someone else.

Straight to the Heart (#3) – Releasing Jan 22, 2016
Gia Maynard always had a wild streak. She doesn’t mind bending the rules, except when it comes to the rules of her heart. She doesn’t do relationships, instead she devotes her time to her true love....dancing. That is until Jasper Campbell comes along. Handsome, rich and powerful, Gia becomes totally enthralled with him until she finds herself slowly turning into someone she no longer knows.

Cam Hamilton has always been like a big brother to Gia. Now one of the hottest baseball players in the Major League, he is known for his moves on and off the field. But no matter how many women he has in his life, Gia will always be his number one.

When Gia’s heart is broken into pieces, Cam is right there to help her put it back together. When they both give in to their feelings for each other, will they be able to pretend that certain lines were never crossed, and certain feelings were never felt? Will Gia follow the rules that she has lived by for her entire life or is Cam the one worth breaking all of them for?
Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen - or in today's world a touch of the keyboard. I am the author of The Exception To The Rule, An Unplanned Lesson, An Unplanned Life Drowning In Love, A Cry for Hope, A Will To Change, Blind Side of Love, When The Chips Are Down and Easy Silence.

My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? I'm a mom of twin teenage boys, a crazy Border Collie and a cat with an identity crisis! I guess you can say writing is my form of Calgon!
