SPOTLIGHT- Author JL Leslie

                     Meet the Author:

I am a happily married mother of three (two boys and one girl). I live in a very small town in Alabama. Never lived anywhere else. I’ve been writing since my early twenties, but I couldn’t seem to finish a book. I’ve started self-publishing with the encouragement from my mom. Without her encouragement, I don’t think I would’ve done it. She always supported me and writing is something I’ve always enjoyed doing. As long as I enjoy it, I’ll continue to do it. I’ve learned already that I can’t please everyone. Not all reviews will be good, not all reviews will be bad. I’m the one that has to be happy with my work.

I get my inspiration from life experiences, movies, television, other authors, and music. Music is definitely a big influence on my writing. I can hear a song and it can inspire an entire book for me. I listen to it while I’m driving or before I start writing and it keeps me inspired. I like to put music in my books, even if it’s just one song the characters listen to or hear at some point. Sometimes music has gotten me through the really tough times in my life and that’s why it inspires me.

I like to write fast-paced, steamy romance reads. I like for my males to be alpha-males and my heroines to be strong, but both need to have one weakness- each other. I am an avid reader. I absolutely love romance books!

Available ONLY on AMAZON

I had a plan when I was nineteen. I would strip only until the bills were paid and I knew my sister and I wouldn’t be thrown out on the street. We would be financially stable. That was my plan. That was also three years ago. I’m still stripping. 

I keep telling myself my life will change. I won’t do this much longer. I won’t need to. I don’t even believe that anymore. I still have bills. I still have a deadbeat mom. No idea where my father is. Or who he is. 

Now my sister tells me she screwed up. Her future is at stake. One we’ve both worked hard for. There’s an offer for me. One I’ve refused twice now, but my resolve is slowly slipping. It’s just a job. He just wants to buy me for a little while. 

He can buy me. But he’ll never own me.

60 Days 
Available ONLY on AMAZON
I had everything going for me. I was in a great relationship. I thought things were almost perfect there. Key word. Almost. 

Then he asked me to change things up a bit. Try something new. And I agreed. I never should’ve agreed. 

He promised things wouldn’t change between us. It would make us stronger. Bring us closer. But for the past sixty days, I’ve been living a lie. I’ve been pretending to be someone I’m not. Pretending to be happy when I’m not. All for him. 

I can’t do it anymore. I can’t live like this. Sixty days is long enough. I want my life back. I want myself back. And I’m willing to change who I am to be happy again. 

I don’t have to be the same old me anymore. I can become a different person. I can turn over a new leaf. I can try new things. I can even try someone new…

But now I have two men in my life. Two men who want to be with me. Two men I never thought I’d have the chance to be with. And I feel like I’m drowning...
