Blurb
Sometimes you get what you need.
Damien Sinclair has witnessed more than his share of love’s ugly aftermath—first as a child of quarreling parents and these days as an acclaimed divorce attorney. His solution? Control. From his immaculate, organized penthouse to his monochromatic wardrobe to his refusal to let anyone get too close, Damien is master of all he sees… Or so he thinks. Then an attempt on his life leaves him struggling with PTSD.
Free-spirited Harley Taylor, Damien’s childhood friend and a one-time fling, arrives on his doorstep, having appointed herself his caregiver. She’s his polar opposite and hell bent on redirecting his life. And if somehow that life might expand to include her for the long term, even better. Either way, the man needs to learn not to take himself so seriously. If that involves a prank or two, so be it.
Interacting for the first time in a decade, Harley and Damien find their attraction still smoldering. But to what end? Is Harley the shot of color Damien needs to disperse the black cloud that plagues him? Or are they destined to destroy each other all over again?

Check out my FIVE STAR review!

The Redirection of Damien Sinclair (A Pine Bluff Novel #4)The Redirection of Damien Sinclair by Nancee Cain
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Reunion of Rich Boy and Servant Girl

The Pine Bluff series features a fun, varied group of twenty-somethings living in small town Alabama. I love how each character has unique quirks and life circumstances. In the fourth installment, cranky attorney Damien fights off his budding attraction to his childhood sweetheart, Harley. It’s the reunion of the over-responsible boy and the little girl with stars in her eyes.

Damien’s wealthy family employed Harley’s parents as cook and butler. Damien, his younger brother Angel, and Harley shared childhood spats and adventures. As teenagers, Damien and Harley fell in love, but their parents squashed their romance due to socioeconomic differences.

Flash forward to present time. Damien has just sustained a trauma involving his career as a divorce attorney, and Harley arrives to nurse him back to health. This time they don’t have their parents standing between them, yet there are still haunting barriers to their love.

Harley tells Damien,

“You know, I credit myself with your success as a lawyer. Think about all those years you practiced arguing with me.”

Unfortunately Damien has had too much success at helping his clients divorce each other, which has led him to be cynical and frightened about love.

Damien and Harley meet Harley’s former lover, Mark, and the woman who loves Mark, Jinx. Jinx owns a big dog and it sounds like Mark, Jinx, and the dog will be main characters in book five.

It was the biggest goddamned dog Damien had ever seen. His tail swept across the floor like a windshield wiper.

Looking forward to future books in the series!

My twin brother is determined to kill himself, but I won’t let him. 

I just discovered the sacrifice he made for me when we were young.


Now it’s time I return the favor. This time I’ll be the one with the secret.


Psychologist Matthew Durante’s twin brother, Justin, has struggled with mental illness since their parents died in a house fire. After Justin is accused of setting off a bomb that killed an innocent woman, he lands in a maximum-security psychiatric hospital.

In the face of Justin’s unrelenting suicide attempts, Matthew grows frantic to keep him alive. And as the pieces of their past fall into place, Matthew decides bold action is his only choice, no matter the cost.

Set against the backdrop of weapons manufacturing, terrorism, and a dark family secret, Matthew and Justin fight for survival, redemption, and most of all, for each other.






Psychologist/author (psycho author) Jennifer Lane invites you to her world of romance, sports, and suspense! By day she’s a therapist, and by night she’s a writer. She can’t decide which is more fun.

Jen’s first psychological thriller launches in 2018: Twin Sacrifice. Psychologist Matthew Durante risks his own life to save his twin brother’s as their foster father tries to take them down.

A swimmer and volleyball player in college, Jen writes swimming-based romances as well: Streamline, a military mystery, and the free New Adult novella Swim Recruit.

Stories of redemption interest Jen the most, especially the healing power of love. She is also the author of The Conduct Series, a romantic-suspense trilogy that includes With Good BehaviorBad Behavior, and On Best Behavior.

Whether writing or reading, Jen loves stories that make her laugh and cry. In her spare time she enjoys exercising, attending book club, and visiting her sisters in Chicago and Hilton Head.

Author R.L. Griffin — Review and Interview

It’s my pleasure to have author R.L. Griffin to the blog! She loves to write in the New Adult genre—one of my favorites. Following her interview is my review of her novel By a Thread.


Jennifer Lane (JL): Welcome to the blog, RL! I’m psyched to meet you at the New Adult Sleepover Weekend in December. How did you get started writing?

R.L. Griffin (RLG): I’ve been “writing” all my life, but I wrote my first published work while I had so much free time in law school. *sarcasm*


JL: You’re an attorney, correct? How do law and writing fit together?

RLG: As an attorney you have to write long boring briefs and arguments that are very dry.  I love creating people’s stories and so writing gives me the ability to do that.


JL: How do you juggle working, writing, and motherhood?

RLG:  Poorly.  I don’t sleep very much.  I do try to make sure I’m the best mom I can be to my son when I can.  I do work long hours so I try to make up for that on the weekends and my husband and I take turn going to all of his sport practices.  My firm is really good about letting me do mom things.  I make it a priority.


JL: What drew you to write in the New Adult genre?

RLG:  I honestly think it’s such an interesting time in your life.  You are just getting all the responsibility of adulthood and dealing with major issues, but you still don’t have tons of life experiences to make great decisions all the time.  It makes for an interesting story.


JL: What’s next for you?

RLG:  Tension, the continuation of By A Thread comes out August 1 and I’m already working on the third book in the series.


JL: Can’t wait! Thank you for stopping by and good luck with your writing.

Picking Up The Pieces

Author R.L. Griffin and I will attend the New Adult Sleepover Weekend in Savannah, Georgia in December, 2013 (more info here: http://newadultsleepover.blogspot.com). When I discovered she writes my favorite genre of romantic suspense, I definitely wanted to read her novel! And I’m so glad I did.

Stella and Jamie were student-athletes at the same university. They fell in love and got engaged, then moved to Washington, D.C. to live together. Jamie starts a career with the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms) and Stella is about to start law school.

Things seem perfect, right?

WRONG.

When Jamie dies in a car accident, Stella falls apart. Girlfriend’s definitely hanging “by a thread” as she defers law school for an alcoholic bender into depression. I was horrified when a drunk Stella responded to grieving messages on Facebook from Jamie’s friends, like:

hey d-bag, Jamie probably doesn’t even remmdher your name

! Jamie’s roommates Patrick and Billie take care of Stella and her dog Cooper, slowly nursing her back to health. She meets a bartender named George and eventually starts living again, though it’s an empty life.

Stella’s so low for most of the novel that at times it was hard to find her likable. Apparently she’s quite beautiful since she draws the attention of many men despite her hard, rejecting shell. (Or maybe that speaks to the old adage that we want what we can’t have?) Of course I wanted to throw her into treatment for her alcohol problem. 😉

I did enjoy Patrick, who’s like a brother to Stella, as well as George. Saint George puts up with all kinds of blow-back and bitterness from Stella, but he’s always there for her, supporting her. Her law-school friend Millie is fun. I loved Millie’s name for the line of muscle on a fit guy’s lower torso: the arrow muscle. Yeah! Fiance Jamie’s character is rather unknown, which makes me wonder if there will be a sequel.

My favorite part of the story was the mind-blowing ending. I didn’t see that one coming! The return to events mentioned in the prologue gave me a better understanding of Stella and the parts of the story that earlier frustrated me.

Check out this New Adult journey of healing!
