"Let me say this first, this book was this author’s DEBUT novel. To clarify, that means her very first book. Omfg it was PERFECT!! This book was heartfelt, sexy, romantic, cute, tragic and freaking adorable."
"Wow, wow, wow. Just...wow!"
-M. Smith, Amazon
"If ever there was a book that deserved more than 5 stars, it is this one in my opinion. I have smiled and cried and laughed so much that I actually snorted a time or too!"
"OMG! I would give this book 100 stars, if I could! This story tugs at your heartstrings as well as your funny bone."

Cross My Heart
One chance encounter broke me; another could set me free.
The moment I meet the incredibly sexy Dexter Cross, I know I'm in trouble. His intensity is electric, and I express a sass I thought was long extinguished. It's a shock to my system and seems to put Dexter on edge, which I like.
Teasing him appears to be my new favorite pastime.
Accepting the nanny position for Dexter's three children will be my fresh start in life, but the closer I get to Dexter and his children, the harder I know it will be to leave. I'm only meant to stay for a year, but all too quickly, Dexter becomes determined to break down my walls. He went from Alpha-Male to Alpha-Prince-Charming, and I don't know if I'm strong enough to resist.
Dexter thinks I can choose them and stay, but I know better. He doesn't understand my kind of damaged. My scars run deep, but so does Dexter's determination. He has his eyes and heart set on me. Even our friends are joining in on this battle, a crazy bunch of misfits who cause chaos at every turn.
It's me against them, I'm just not sure who will break first.
A page-turning emotional rollercoaster; can Lanie learn to accept love, or are the demons of her past too strong, even for Dexter Cross? Click the BUY NOW button to enter the world of Waverley-Cay and find out!
The Beat of My Heart
One week. No strings. Sexy stranger. What could go wrong?
My name is Julia McDowell. I’m not the pretty girl next door, I’m the boss at work who solves all your problems. I’m an awkward genius with the worst taste in boyfriends; the last one left me with a 6-figure debt to prove it.
So, when the sexiest man alive saves me from a psychotic tree, who am I to say no to a drink? He’s sweet yet powerful with a darkness I can’t place. I should be terrified of him, but I find myself drawn to him in ways I’ve never experienced. He says I’m his guiding light, that our hearts beat to the same melody. But I’m not looking for forever, and he has his own demons to slay.
We agreed to one week, no strings. It will have to be enough. It’s definitely enough, more than enough until it’s not.
I’m ready to throw our one-week rules out the window when tragedy pulls us apart. It would take a miracle to find our way back to each other, and life is no fairytale. With no happily ever after in sight, will our hearts learn a new rhythm? Or will heartache become our new theme song?
The Beat of My Heart is a standalone HEA that is part of the Broken Hearts Series. While it can be read alone, Avery strongly encourages you to read book 1, Cross My Heart, first to catch all the Easter Eggs in this book.
