Ava Lawton can’t believe her run of bad luck. It’s supposed to be an exciting time in her life: fresh out of college, living in a new state, with a new job, and away from her family at last.
But when she’s forced to quit her job, everything falls apart quickly. Suddenly, she’s alone in a crowd, with no one to turn to.
At her lowest point, a stranger gives her a message that brings her hope.
Now is the time to live life her own way.
Now is the time to choose to be happy.
And maybe it’s time to let a beautiful stranger be part of her life.

Purchase Playing In The Rain


I swear Jane Harvey-Berrick likes to take my breath away from me.  She has done it again.

I am not going to go through the blurb here (for once, I know, shocker).

This book is about Ava and Cody.

Cody brings Ava joy and teaches her to find happiness, in doing that Ava brings Cody happiness and they both give each other so much more.

I tried to keep my guard up while I was reading.  I just felt that something was coming.  Nope, not going to spoil, but I couldn’t keep my guard up and my breath was knocked out of me.


Absolutely beautiful book.

Might I suggest going out and laying under the stars, or stopping by a homeless shelter and helping, or if you are really daring, go jump out of an airplane and feel alive.

But first, get yourself a sex on the beach to drink, then sit and enjoy this beautiful story.

Thank you so much for my copy of Playing In The Rain.  I loved it!

I started writing contemporary romance two years ago. Before that, I didn’t think I could write a sex scene. Turns out I can!
My lucky number is 13 because I was born on the 13th and live near a haunted castle by the ocean. My number one past-time is watching hot surfers get changed into (and out of) their wetsuits.
My husband doesn’t read my books. My mother does.
Writing is my love, my hobby, my total addiction. All my characters are important to me and whisper their stories, even when I’ve finished writing their books. That’s why you’ll often find bonus chapters/out-takes from various books, because those voices just won’t be quiet.
