Jaden says:

Sarah Miller is known as a dreamer in her stifling Mennonite community, but she's hiding something from them all. A simple wish to avoid the strictly enforced life path expected of her...early marriage, babies, and work on the farm.

She wants more, so much more. Education, travel,

A chance at university hundreds of miles away is too much to pass up, so she follows her best friend Naomi and decides to take her future into her own hands.

She had no idea this decision would change her in ways she never imagined, will the one person she falls in love with hold her back from everything she ever wanted?

***As with all my work, this novel is intended for those 18+. It is New Adult, but contains depictions of graphic sex, drug use and underage drinking. However, if you are in the mood for an amazing story with sex scenes that will make your naughty bits tingle, you’re in luck!

****This is not a stand alone, it is a cliffhanger, the first of three books. Book two is already in process so you won't have to wait long! I'm not going to go all George RR Martin on my fans and make you suffer for years between books. ;)

About the book:

18-year old Sarah Miller lives on her parents farm in a Mennonite Community in Alberta, Canada.

What her future looks like? She will get married as soon as possible, have babies - non-stop - and live on her husbands farm - like the shy, good religious girl she was raised to become. Her parents will not force her to marry a guy of their choosing, so it won't be a forced/arranged marriage, but that doesn't make it much better.
What Sarah wants her future to look like? She wants MORE - she wants to leave - to go to University and live and love and have SEX! Before she goes back home and does what her parents want ☺

Her parents only let her go because she promises them to share an apartment with her best friend Naomi and because she promises to study biblical Archaeology.

The girls leave for Simon Fraser University - in British Colombia (20km outside of Vancouver) - 800 miles from home. And they love it there - of course!

Sarah's first class is - NOT biblical anything - but Archaeology 101 - focusing on physical anthropology - and taught by Professor Adam Summers. A guy who's books she has been secretly reading for years.
But she had no idea how young and goodlooking he was until he walked into the classroom.

But even  before she notices how hot her new prof is - she sees somebody else!
Tyr (pronounced tear - as in the thingies that roll down your face when you cry).
He sits in the back of the class and waves down at her - she waves back - but unfortunately he wasn't waving at her ☺
Well - Tyr is H.O.T. - he's tall - and built and has darkish - native american skin - black hair and he's covered in tribal tattooes.

Sarah is immediately in lust and love ☺ and totally embarrassed after that waving incident.

That's why she concentrates on her class and especially Dr. Adam - and he seems interested too. Very interested - too interested for a teacher.

At a party the girls throw at their apartment, Sarah sees Tyr again - unfortunately she's a bit - ok, a lot drunk - and kind of offends him and his tribal tattooes - every idiot has them these days. ☺
"They are tribal because they are Tshimshian. My tribe. I am part of the Tshimshian Nation from the northwest coast, I'm from Prince Rupert."

After that party - and after a surprising confession from Naomi - the girls hang out with Tyr pretty regularly.
There's a lot of chemistry between Sarah and Tyr, and then one night - after they all went out to dinner - there's a kiss. A KISS! But after that kiss Tyr acts like nothing happened. Until he calls her again.

"I kissed you, and I think I confused you. I like you, a lot, but my life is complicated right now. I just can't get involved with anybody, especially somebody as sweet as you. I don't want to drag you into this shit I'm going through, ok?"

and here I will stop....
I'm not telling you more about the story - you have to read it yourself! It would spoil too much! ☺

only a few little interesting points:

- there's not only Adam and Tyr - there's Eric too. A guy her parents want her to meet - and hopefully marry.

- they spend a weekend in Prince Rupert.

- there will be arguments and fights.

- there will be phone calls and texts & waiting for phone calls and texts. 

- there will be swearing and dirty talk (Sarah needs to learn to do that - says Naomi)

- there will be SEX - lots of HOT SEX ☺

- Sarah will have to choose!! Between who or what - I won't tell you ☻

and then of course - since the #1 suggests a #2 - there will be a
CLIFFHANGER!!!!!! whaaaaaat??????? - noooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I loved the book!

It's a cute - funny - sexy Romance! A book you don't read every day - with Sarah coming from this extremely religious background - and I hate anything that has to do with religion. But it really made me happy - that at least somebody - even if it was only a fictional person - escapes the religious craziness that is so common in North America.

Sarah is such a shy and sweet girl - and she doesn't even know how pretty she is. But she slowly starts to really LIVE the way she always dreamed of.

I loved the moment Sarah's eyes found Tyr in class that first day - and it kind of hurt my little hearty when Adam and Eric appear in the book!

There are lots of problems to overcome of course (not only for Sarah) - and we don't really overcome much in the first book - but I'm rooting for Tyr and I can't wait for book 2 - I need to know what will happen with them.

And TYR??? OY - he's sooo HOT and sexy and sweet and moody and grrrr ☺

If you like your New Adult romances sexy and funny and romantic and a bit different ----->>>
 it will be available on July 30th.

About Jaden

Jaden Wilkes is the pen name for a girl living on the prettiest farm in BC. After a lifetime of love, lust and adventure, she is happily settled down with her second chance, the love of her life.

New to the world of fiction, but not writing, Jaden has won prizes for poetry, published research articles and essays, and maybe even a thesis or two.
A life of travel, adventure and keen observations of human nature allow for the creation of rich worlds and...

Fuck it, I need to keep it real. I have done a bunch of stuff, met a lot of people and lead an interesting life. That's it! I am passionate about my art, my work, my family and my friends, not necessarily in that order. I love writing fiction, I've spent years hearing things like "you should write a book" or "ZOMG you're so funny, write that shit down". And now I am. I hope you enjoy my words as much as I enjoy laying them down.

I've been an archaeologist (ethnographic research as well as human skeletal remains specialist), a GIS geek, a teacher, a city planning nerd and a photographer. New to that list, author. I am damn proud of this designation and hope that it will keep spurring me on to greater and better things. Every work I produce will be better than the last, so if you liked this first one, you will love the rest!

Thank you for joining me on this crazy journey. Along the way I hope I am able to offer you some laughs, some succor for the soul and some tingles in your soft places. ;)
