Meet the Author

Jen Talty co-created Cool Gus Publishing with NY Times Best-Selling Author Bob Mayer, and runs the technical side of the company. She is a published romance author, and teaches Creative Writing at various writing conferences across the country.

Jen grew up in Rochester, NY, a city with the highest murder rate per capita in the entire state. With notorious cases such as The Alphabet Murders, The Genesee River Killer (Arthur Shawcross), The Murder of Kali Ann Poulton by Mark Christi, and the case of funeral homes stealing body parts from corpses awaiting cremation, Jen became fascinated by the darker side of human nature. She brings this fascination to her romances, creating dark villains who wreak havoc on the hero and heroine, and producing page-turning suspense.

Jen received a BS degree in Business Education with a concentration in Marketing and Sales from Nazareth College of Rochester. She taught Business Applications at both the high school level and in Continuing Education. She was a co-leader of Distributed Education Clubs of America and worked with students in developing marketing, sales and public speaking skills. After leaving the teaching profession, she worked as a product and sales trainer for various hardware and software companies such as 3Comm, HP and McAfee, and was the regional merchandising representative for Buena Vista Entertainment.

Cool Gus Publishing was formed as a vehicle to launch Bob Mayer's backlist into digital publication. It was built on the notion that writers produce the product, readers consume the product and everything else is in between. The 21st century has brought the rise of the digital author. It is time to take control.

Write It Forward, a division of Cool Gus Publishing was formed because both Bob Mayer and Jen Talty believe the two most important people in the publishing business are the writer and the reader. The key to being successful in a business where 99% of what is submitted or self-published is rejected or fails is education and understanding. Write It Forward is dedicated to giving writers the tools and information they need to increase their chances of success. It truly is a great time to be an author.

    The author provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    This book started out really strong. Right off the bat you get a strong sense of the history and chemistry between Ryan and Jared. The age difference between them has caused Jared to treat Ryan like a little sister for most of her life. He has a strong sense of responsibility toward her, since her life has not always been a bowl of gravy. He feels like he needs to be there for her. Ryan idolizes Jared, and uses him as a measuring stick against which all men are compared. Ryan seems like the kind of woman who thinks if she loves a man enough, it will pull him out of his pain...and Jared has a lot of pain. After his wife leaves him and his son dies suddenly, Jared is left bitter and scorned. He decides that love and family are not for him, and that a change of scenery is just what he needs to move on with his life. A promotion to an exciting new job takes the front seat in his life, and there isn't room for much else.

    Two weeks before he leaves town for good, Ryan begins receiving threats and vicious notes. Someone's out to get her and Jared frantically tries to solve the mystery before his two weeks are up. He won't leave town until he knows she's safe. The suspense was built up nicely through most of the book, and just when you thought you knew who the villain was, another person would pop up with a grudge against Ryan and throw the entire investigation for a loop.

    For the most part the characters were likable, although I liked Jared more than Ryan. At times she seemed a little self-absorbed but she's pretty young and that's to be expected. I felt sympathy for Jared and my heart hurt for him and the loss of his son. I wanted him to be healed and realize that Ryan truly loved him and was perfect for him.

    The love scenes are hot! This was one area where Jared and Ryan didn't seem to have any problems. For most of the book they try to pretend as if the sex is enough; each time Ryan tells Jared that it won't happen again. But their bond is too strong by this point and when things get rough and Ryan goes to Jared for solace, all talk of ending their sexual relationship is ended.

    There were a few issues for me though, and as always I have to address them in the review. For one thing though, I felt as if there was way too much rehashing of the past. It seemed like there was too much lingering in Jared or Ryan's thoughts, all of which seemed to go back in time. After a while it just got old, especially since it had all been spelled out early on in the book. By the time I got to 50% I started to lose a bit of the sympathy that had been sparked in me when first reading their back story.

    ***Slight Spoiler***
    I also found the revelation of the villian to be incredibly confusing and anticlimactic. At first one man is arrested, and then a few pages later it is revealed that someone else was the culprit all along. It was never explained, though, what the first man had to do with the crime if anything. After he was arrested and the second man was fingered as the perp, no one said anything about whether or not the first man had anything to do with it. Was he released? Was he even guilty of anything? It was a bit of a let down after all of the suspense that had been built. In the end it turned out to be the person I suspected, but even that was a bit anticlimactic as I found the
