BLURB

From USA Today Best- Selling Author comes book one in The Sweet Sin Series.

 


Meet the men of the rock band, Trained in Black.
 

 


“Our someday will come soon, Joslyn.” Those words were the last words I heard from Roman Nixon before I walked away. 
I knew our someday might come, but not the one he and I had always dreamed about. 

 

His life headed in one direction, mine in the other. While Roman became the lead singer for the successful rock band Trained in Black, I became a ruthless attorney. 
He moved on and married someone else. As I was forced to observe him and his bride on the cover of every magazine out there, I deserved to suffer because of what I had done. 
What I didn’t expect was a phone call that led to me becoming his new attorney. 

 

After years apart, our opposite worlds collide. This time, we may get our someday. But first, we have to find a way to steer us in the right direction.

Tyson by Kathy Coopmans ~ Excerpt Reveal

 

Releasing May 22, 2017

BLURB

I know what it’s like to have your heart split down the middle. 
One-half chases her. The other half chases after the lies, deceit, and betrayal. 
It’s a burning ball of hell. 
Seconds, minutes, hours, and years all spent endured the depth of my own burning inferno. 
All of it runs together while life passes me by.
Thirteen years ago, the woman I was in love with left me standing at the altar. 
Hurt. 
Broken. 
Humiliated. 
Some say thirteen is a lucky number. 
Me? I curse the number.
Now she’s back. 
Reminding me.
Torturing me.
She says things are not what they seem.
That they weren’t then either.
Do I believe her?
Do I forgive? 
Forget? 
Time and truth will tell.

Excerpt

My insides shake as she walks out with a warm breeze only to be replaced by the freezing chills and the ice cold stare of Jude. He shuts the door behind him, stands firmly in place and stares me down.
“That intimidating look may work well on the criminals you pick up; I assure you, Jude, it will not work on me. Now, what can I help you with?” Yes, I know that Tyson and his friends are cops. I know everything there is to know about him. He left as planned for the Army shortly after I left him. He’s a womanizer. Sleeps around, drinks and gets into fights. He’s angry, bitter and out of control and it all reflects back on me. I’ve studied the symptoms of a broken person. I’m one myself.
I know very little about his time at war. I’m sure some of his anger stems from there. I feared for his life every day. Kept up with the news and terror weighed on my shoulders every second he was deployed. I’m so proud of him for what he’s done with his
life. Coming from a young kid with the odds of turning into a criminal stacked against him to a man of honor. A soldier turned cop. I couldn’t ask for a better man than him.
I still haven’t been able to let him go. The man I left lives in the tattered mess of my heart, and I never stopped praying our lives would have been different, that fate wouldn’t have snuck up on me and kicked my feet right out from under me. Stole our chance at happiness. I’ve loved Tyson since the first day I laid my eyes on him. Through time and therapy, I thought I would be able to stop loving him. That there was no way, love could be this strong that months, years and a decade later it would still
linger. The precious memories I kept locked away swarmed to the forefront of my mind the minute I saw him again. Stolen kisses, bodies tangled together. Our
hearts so full of promises to one another. I broke them all. Broke him. Broke me. I’m here to fix it. Somehow.
 I remain calm matching Jude’s gaze while every cell in my body is a quivering mess. My stomach shifts uneasily and sweat
breaks out at the nape of my neck. But, I will not falter or allow him to see that his presence is terrifying me.
“When Tyson first told me it was you I didn’t want to believe it. I prayed for you to disappear, to crawl back under your rock and stay the hell away from him. Now after seeing what this is doing to him. I’ve changed my mind. Before I get into why I think you owe me an explanation as to what your plans are, I want you to know I’m standing here not trying to intimidate you. I’m here to tell you if your reasons are not legit. I will fucking destroy you.” Good luck. You can’t destroy something that’s already broken.

MEET RYAN VANDYKE

The inspiration behind Kathy Coopmans character, Tyson. Thank You to Ryan for answering these questions.

What keeps you motivated and moving forward to conquer your dreams? And why?

 

 

Humanity keeps me motivated. I have a personal drive to inspire others to their highest potential. I found my passion by helping people transform their physical health/wellness. When I see people becoming better because of me simply sharing my passion inspires me to keep moving each day.

 

 

   What made you decide to become a model?

 

 

When I was 5 years old I went to a commercial audition for Cinnamon Toast Crunch. The acting/modeling bug bit me early in my childhood and stayed with me. I enjoy the creative process that goes into creating a look. It’s an art of expression.

 

 

  What is it like to see yourself on the cover of a book? 

 

 

I think it’s awesome.  You get to be something different and fun. It’s a showcase to your work and gives the character in the book somewhat of a face.

 

 

  How many book covers have you been on?

 

 

I have been on 4 so far and hopefully a few more by the end of this year. I have some new shoots scheduled  and love working with the authors.

 

 

    How do you get into character for a shoot?

 

 

Shoots are a chance to play a different role. I get to break into an alter ego for a few hours. I also usually have a lot of creative input into the shoots so I truly get to play and have fun. It’s
work but it’s just fun. We just need to get the best shot that displays the character
in the authors vision.

 

 

    How did you feel when you did your first ever photo shoot?

 

 

I was definitely nervous but once the music comes on and you hear the click of the camera and flashing lights.. It’s go time. It’s work and fun. You do what you need to do to get the perfect look and vision. You just have to be playful and have fun. The crazier and more awkward you feel the better the shoot.


    Which tat is your most sacred and why?

 

R.U.L.E. located on the lower portion of my left thumb. “Rule of THUMB” acronym from RESPECT. UNDERSTANDING. LOVE. EQUALITY.  A reminder of non negotiable attributes
of a healthy relationship moving forward for myself..

 

 


What are some of your passions and hobbies?

 

 

The gym and my health are top passion/hobby. Human awakening, yoga, internal peace, keeping an open mind about the world, mediation, inspiring others. Reading, live music 

 

 

   It’s a Sunday Afternoon, what would we find you doing?

 

 

 Food prepping, gym, cheat meal-usually pizza and cake/ice cream, maybe the beach or  movies, or taking my little man aka LION MONKEY dog aka TRIPP to the park.

 

 


What’s the most embarrassing fan run in you’ve had because of your modeling?

 

 

I love running into people that have followed me on social media.. I always find it flattering as long as I am making a positive impact on their lives. However I hate it if I don’t know them
back it always makes me feel bad or embarrassed.

 

 


What is the oldest item in your refrigerator and how old is it?

 

 

Probably the baking soda refresher.. I think you are supposed to change those from time to time and I never do…oops.  Things don’t’ stay in my fridge that long. I EAT A LOT and love food.

 

 


Favorite quote?

 

 

Follow your own soul, it knows all the answers, you just have to trust and listen to what you already know. 

 

 


Song that you can’t help but dance to?

 

 

I love EDM, R&B, and POP.. so anything with a good beat and sexy lyrics that get your hips moving like MAGIC MIKE.  There is this cool Henry Krinkle remix called STAY by Justin Martin that gets me moving right now.

 

 


What did you want to be when you were a kid?

 

 

I wanted to be so many things. Orthodontist, news anchor, actor/model,  but so happy
that I found my passion to help others through health/wellness and run #RVDFIT as an entrepreneur.

Jude

 

I faked my way long enough by keeping my mouth shut, painting a fake smile on my face and focusing hard on my job.

I quit going out to find that random piece of ass.

Not a one of them would stand up to her anyway.

She hates me, loathes me even.

Little does Vivian Shepard know I’ve got more tricks up my sleeve than she will ever begin to imagine to get her to change her mind, to get my chance.

I’m not giving up.

I want her, and by God, I’ll fight as dirty as I can get to have her.

No matter what!

 

Vivian

Of course, I knew it was a one- night stand.

It’s was the perfect night before all hell broke loose to be quite honest.

Drinking, talking and flirting.

One I relished in as I tried to gravitate my mind back to solid ground after soaring so high I could feel the rush of flying.

My stomach dipped, my heart fluttered, and my toes curled inward and then I splattered to the hard surface of the ground.

Jude Westbrooke opened his big fat mouth.

He ruined it, ruined me, ruined it all.

“We need to talk.” I finally manage to pull away from her. My eyes are diverting from her mouth to her soaked t-shirt. “Fuck,” I snarl. Her pink nipples are standing out against the wet fabric, which is white and very thin. My gaze darkens the further south it goes, down to her tiny little pink and white shorts that are saturated. Rivulets of water are dripping down her long, toned legs, dripping off her silky skin to mix with the giant puddle on the floor.

“You look absolutely beautiful, Red.”

“What in the hell are you doing here, Jude? It’s a monsoon out there. And what gives you the right to barge into my house and attack me like that, anyway? Have you lost your mind?” She shoves me back a step and climbs off the counter, nearly falling on her ass in the process. Slippery when wet, baby! The spell is broken.

“I didn’t lose my mind. You fucking stole it. I can’t stop thinking about you, and no matter what you try and say, I know damn well you don’t want me to. So we are talking, goddamn it!” I yell.

“Well, that sure didn’t sound like talking to me. And take your mind back. I don’t want it.” Liar.

“No, darling, it wasn’t talking. What that was, was several months of pent-up frustration over wanting more of what you gave me the night we met. What that was, was me telling you that I’m not a man who walks away from something he knows is rare. You want to give me my mind back, then let me give you something more to stew about in that pretty head of yours. You are so full of shit if you think for one second I’m buying the piss-ass excuse that you don’t want me. And before your head gets all rattled and you start spewing more of your shit, I’m not talking about sex, Vivian. I’m talking about you. The woman I know is in there, but is too fucking stubborn to let the best side of her out. I want that woman. The woman I met before I fucked shit up. The woman I want to ask out on a date. So, you know what? I’m here to tell you that once you decide to let that woman emerge, you give me a call.”

I turn to leave and grab the door handle. I’m so fucking mad she isn’t trying to stop me like she should that I could spit nails into this door. Hammer this goddamn thing shut.

“I’m telling you right the hell now, Vivian, that if you don’t call me, then you are wasting what I know for a goddamn fact would be the greatest gift given to me, which is you.”

Review

Kathy Coopmans’ Jude was that perfect mixture of sexy, sweet, dirty talking alpha male that wanted to protect everyone around him. As his very world spiraled out of control he realized just how precious those closest to him were and how he would do anythng to protect them. And the way he wasn’t afraid to show his emotions damn near melted my panties right off of me! I loved how tough Vivian was. She has been through so much this last year… but she never backed down. Watching the two of them together brought me such joy.
