In her existential crisis era.

Easy-going Megan Riley is hiding something. Years ago, a family tragedy left her with a fortune —and terrible survivor’s guilt. Even her inner circle doesn’t know her secrets. But her friends need an angel investor for their new app, and Megan has the cash. She’s thrilled to make their dreams come true, so long as she remains out of the spotlight. If only it were that easy.

Giving uptight vibes.

Straight-laced Luke Paris is in Nashville to market a new dating app. It’s a killer opportunity. Except he didn’t realize a friend group came attached. Luke is lousy at socializing and avoids small talk, but the enigmatic Megan immediately captures his attention. Fascinated and frustrated, he aches to know the authentic her. If only he could loosen up and get his foot out of his mouth.

Chat me up, baby.

On paper, Megan and Luke don’t match. Online, however, inhibitions vanish and “types” get redefined. The connection is real—and real hot. Can their steamy secret romance thrive IRL? Will dynamite digital chemistry survive its collision course with reality? Or will everything blow up in their faces?


Top 5 favorite scenes and why.

For a pantser like me, writing any novel is predicated on key scenes I have in my head. I don’t begin with an outline like a plotter would. Instead, I spend time thinking about the characters and bringing them to life by imagining what they’d do and say. Sometimes scenes I envision get directly transcribed into the book. Sometimes they get modified, but they keep the essence of my original idea. Sometimes they have to be deleted altogether.

Choosing five favorite scenes is hard! I’ll start with Just Your Type, but I’m definitely going to mention a few other novels for this list. This top five list is in random order.

#1: The Big Reveal in Just Your Type

No spoilers, sweetie, but we have some hidden identity themes here. Things blow up when Luke and Megan realize just who they are to each other. That drama mixed with attraction was a super fun and fiery scene to get just right. It went through several iterations before the final version.

#2: Luke & Megan on the OCR in Just Your Type

I run Spartan in real life. So adding an obstacle course race to Just Your Type was super fun for me. Even more fun was turning a muddy, sweaty challenge into a little foreplay for my sweethearts. Imagining them hauling that sandbag made me laugh and swoon!

#3: The epilogue to Just Your Type

The novel ends in a restaurant that I personally had a very lovely date in. Putting Luke & Megan there for a super-happy ending felt right, especially since it’s an authentically French place. Beyond the setting, I loved the tie-in to the book’s opening scene—and how Luke so swiftly changed the script on her.

#4. The first kiss/argument in Nemesis (book 3)

Oh man. Olivia and Will, who you see as side characters in Just Your Type, had a fiery and bumpy road to couple hood. But their first kiss in Nemesis is probably my favorite scene of all time. The fighting, the buildup, the fire—yes. Just, yes.

#5. The meet-cute in The Not So Nice Girl

This book is a prequel to my series. It’s set in 1986, and so I got to set Elle and Sam’s meet-cute in a record shop. Their banter about The Cure and Red Hot Chili peppers, her use of a line from Cosmopolitan magazine—everything about it is 80s fun with plenty of spark!
