Me+You Author Interview: J.L. Leslie

Freeing Fenley by J.L. Leslie I am a perfectionist. My parents will not allow anything less of me. I will not allow anything less of myself. I follow the rules and I never break them. I strive to accomplish my goals and, for me, failure is not an option. I can handle a playboy surfer. His smiles do not charm me. His touches do not warm my skin. His words do not make me forget my promises. I did not see Brigham King coming. He is my client. I never mix business with pleasure…especially when my job is on the line. “I want to make you live, Fenley. I want to make you come alive.”

* Freeing Fenley contains adult language, adult content, and sexual situations. It is intended for mature readers only.*
