Progress (Book 1):
Interrupted (Book 2):
Rewired (Book 3):



He is exactly what she needs. But how far into his mind is she willing to go? Jesse has a curious attraction to Charlene, a hostess at the restaurant where he works. Outwardly he’s rude, awkward and unapproachable. But his sudden bursts of charm are inescapable. A devastating childhood filled with physical and emotional abuse have left him complex and frigid. Charlene, an innocent, is quickly mystified. Her craving for him generates an infatuation and a purpose. Losing weight and gaining confidence, she begins taking more risks. She defies her past, damaged and tender, in order to move ahead. "Progress" is a realistic tale of two friends who both have similar issues that make them hesitant to get close to anyone. Jesse's demons have manifested into an emotional detachment, and Charlene's, a physical one. If nobody makes the first move then nobody gets hurt. Their journeys take them down parallel paths which leave them just as emotionally unmatched and conflicted as the day they met.

After the emotional turmoil that was ‘Jesse’ subsides, Charlie manages to find peace with her decision to leave him, despite her conscience telling her otherwise. Saying goodbye to the drama proves to be an easier task than she anticipated. And although Charlie’s life continues to test her strength, her will, and her motivation to pick herself up and dust herself off, she carves a new path. Making positive changes in her life, she gets a new job, a new apartment, and a new guy; everything is nearly perfect. Nearly. Hundreds of miles away, Jesse isn’t faring too well in their aftermath. But within his darkness, he finds a purpose and reconstructs himself with one goal in mind: He needs to find his Charlie. Interrupted is the second book in The Progress Series.

“Because if it weren’t for Jesse, I would have never been the girl you fell in love with.” -Charlie Impasse: def. noun. 1. a situation in which no progress seems possible. 2. a difficult or puzzling situation from which there is no easy escape. Charlie is about to find out how far into Jesse’s tormented past she needs to travel when she hops into his car, leaving the man she loves alone and searching for answers.

But Samuel’s a fighter. He’s not about to give up without an explanation. And he’s soon to discover events in Charlie’s past that offer reasons to her recent behavior. But will it be enough for him to want her back?

Unable to forgive herself for what she’s done to Samuel - and her crumbling future without him - Charlie’s solution is simple: Help Jesse open his mind and his heart, allowing him to trust someone for the first time in his life.

My Review
I have read all 3 books of the Progress Series and I have enjoyed them all. These are not easy reads. These books will make you think. They will rip your heart out. They will make you question your own motivations for reading them. They will make you glad you read them.

Rewired picks up where Interrupted leaves off. Charlie has left Sam to go with Jesse. She thinks she can fix him. Charlie is a patient woman. Way more patient than I am. Jessie is an immature man who refuses to take responsibility for his past, his present, and his future. Rewired takes us to the conclusion of Charlie and Jesse's relationship. Charlie is torn between two men. Jessie is trying to put his life back together. Sam doesn't know what to think about what has happened.

Rewired is intense. It is exhausting (in a good way). It is the perfect conclusion to this series. Don't miss out on this one! 4.5 out of 5!


Jesse winked and handed Charlie some chalk and a cue. “Let’s see what you got.” “Challenge accepted.” She winked back and began chalking the tip. “Wanna break? “No.” I’d much rather take in the view from here. “Go ahead.” “Okay.” Charlie aligned herself at the head of the table, just two feet directly in front of Jesse. Concentrating on the white cue ball on the table, she focused her attention on the fifteen huddled balls in front of her. After gathering her auburn hair into a ponytail, she bent over slowly with her legs slightly spread. Sweet Jesus. Look at that ass. She’s gotta know what she’s doing to me. “Ahem.” Charlie cleared her throat, concealing a smile. “Your turn.” He hadn’t noticed that she had already broken the balls, and they were scattered beautifully across the table. With a couple of taps on the ashtray, Jesse emptied the resin from his pipe and shoved it back into his pocket, a cheap excuse to loosen his tightening jeans. He took his wallet out of his back pocket, along with the lighter, and set them on the bench. Smiling, he glanced at Charlie out of the corner of his eye. “Prepare yourself, Charlie. I know how to play this game, too.”
