Before I start any story, I create a playlist on my Spotify. Every Monday in my reader’s group I share one song from the current WIP (work in progress) that I’m working on. Every author has their own way and playlists are one of mine. They are something I MUST do.
Sometimes I can listen to them while I write, other times I can’t. But every song in the playlist for that WIP is important to the story. If I’m stuck, I will scroll through the list and find one or two of the songs I needed for that moment, and it will push me forward.
Writer’s block is real, and music is my key to unlocking it. To this day, I have never met an obstacle that music hasn’t been able to break down.
I choose the songs very carefully and I will listen to them up to three times in a row before putting it in or tossing it. Sometimes I will listen and be like, “Oh, I like this but not for this story.” And I’ll save it for future use.
I need these playlists, I share these playlists, and if anyone was ever wondering how my books get written, well, those songs make it happen.
Lee, Jones, and Ginger deal with dangerous situations and mounting stress daily working for the most powerful assassin organization in the world. All of those things seem like a walk in the park compared to the friction that sparks between them. When all three are assigned to the same job, ignoring the heat from the inferno of desire becomes impossible.
Lee is a master at deciphering codes, skilled in hacking complicated systems, and never misses a target, even from over fifty miles away. His feelings for Jones and Ginger, however, may be the first code he’s unable to crack.
Jones deals in absolutes, but the road to his past is paved with bodies and regrets. Getting Lee to acknowledge the pull they both feel toward Ginger may be the hardest mission he’s ever had to face.
Ginger struggles to cope with the overwhelming guilt that accompanies this new job. Falling for these hired killers will be a risk—one that could wind up with him losing in the end or gaining everything he’s ever wanted.
As the three work together to take down a human trafficking ring—and save a desperate soul—time is of the essence. Their lives are on the line as mysteries unfold and unexpected encounters throw them off course. Will Lee, Jones, and Ginger let doubts come between them, distracting them from their mission and blocking any hope of love? Or can they face the toughest challenge of their lives and become…a triple threat?

With Lee and Jones busy, I popped my earbuds in, hit play on my Spotify, and drowned in the sounds of Pat Benatar. I loved the ‘80s, some of the ‘90s, but damn the ‘80s had amazing music. As with every time I listened to my music, I started swaying in my seat. I closed my eyes, let my hands tap, my feet slide, and that chorus in “We Belong”… it possessed me, and I couldn’t help myself but to sing. I sang softly as to not disturb Lee and Jones.
“What the absolute fuck!” The sound of Jones’ voice broke through. I opened my eyes and pulled my buds out. The van had stopped and now Lee was standing, staring at me, too.
“Hey,” I said meekly. “What’s up?”
“You scared the crap out of me,” Jones said, and Lee nodded in agreement.
“One second it’s all quiet, then it’s like opera cats or something,” Lee answered, and this time Jones agreed.
“Wow, that’s harsh.” I drew my legs up to my chest, hearing the faint sounds of Tiffany singing that she thinks we’re alone now.
“Just warn us when you’re going to break out into song is all,” Lee grumbled, and then got back into the driver’s seat. I slipped the earbuds back in.
A tap on my leg had me pulling out my earbuds again.
“You listen to all ‘80s or you got some not shitty crap in there?” Jones asked, and I gripped my phone like he just shit on my dreams.
“Nothing of what I have is shit!”
Lee started to laugh as he pulled back onto the road and Jones had a huge grin. It was a change I hadn’t really seen in a while. Those two actually enjoying each other. I knew there was history there, everyone did.
If they wanted to be that way, okay. “Just for that,” I said as I put the phone on speaker and hit play. Joan Jett & The Blackhearts started singing about loving rock and roll, and because they love it so much, I sang with them.
Jones’ eyes widened and Lee once again pulled to the side of the road and turned in his seat. Seemed I was entertainment. I knew I didn’t have the best voice, but I had rendered these two dangerous men speechless. I was loving the power, the control.
Feeling daring, I inched over to Jones who looked positively terrified, and began drumming on his legs.
“Sweet Jesus,” Lee said and laughed so loudly I lost track of my words and watched him. Tears ran down his face, and he had his arms wrapped around his middle. It was a contagious laugh, and suddenly the three of us were in hysterics.
I know that we’ve all waited anxiously for Ginger, Lee and Jones story and let me tell you, you won’t be disappointed!
I love these three characters. They all have their specialties and they would be amazing on their own but put them together and look out! they are like the perfect assassin machine!!!
One of the things that I love about this series is that there’s non-stop action and adventure and it’s thrilling to uncover the mysteries and watch as Blacks assassins do their thing to rid the world of evil. I also love that we get to see the softer side of the men in these stories.
This one has so many feels and kept me on the edge of my seat. I couldn’t stop reading and stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to find out if they, (Ginger, Lee and Jones) can take down the human trafficking ring and get their HEA. It also perfectly sets up the next book in the series and raises some interesting questions about one of the most secretive men in Haven Hart!
