All about the Author: Shawnté Borris  

Shawnté lives in central Alberta, with her husband Ricky of 10 amazing years and together they have two beautiful children. Somehow her husband has managed to trick her into running a cow/calf operation. As much as she fusses about it, she loves it.
When Shawnté is not sitting at her kitchen table hammering away on her laptop while watching the moose chase her cows across the yard, yes this really happens. Then she is busy attend school activities, community events and chauffeuring children here and there. She is big on playing softball and watching hockey.
When the time comes to relax, you will find her snuggled underneath her down comforter reading on her Ipad. Wait…who are we kidding, if the dishes, vacuuming, laundry or the bathrooms needs a hose down, you’ll always hear her say, “Just after this chapter.” She doesn’t have a favorite author or best story because everyday she falls in love with someone new.
Shawnté is technology challenged so you won’t find her on twitter (heaven knows she tried) or instagram – whatever this stuff is called. But she can work one hell of a Facebook page thanks for her fictitious assistant Lacy. Please go like her page and leave a review/star rating on the books she’s wrote.

First excerpt


“First of all, Mother, it is called a sperm bank, not a
sperm bar.” I cannot believe I am having this
conversation right now. “And where did you get this
information from?”
Max looked over at me, smirking.
“Why does it matter where I heard it from? What
will people think?” cried my mother.
“Fuck! Mom, no one is gonna care where or how I
get a baby.” I want to crawl into a hole and die. “Mom,
you wouldn’t by any chance be talking to Marie, would
you? Is that where all this came from? Did she tell you
I’m planning to go to a sperm bank? Or did she tell you
I should think about going to a sperm bank?”
“That’s not the point, Kirsten. The point is that it’s
time for you to settle down and think about having a
family. You need to be more like Marie,” my mom
“Like Marie? My sister, Marie? The one who wears
yoga pants and ponytails everywhere and has a kid
attached to her hip? No, thanks. Don’t get me wrong,
Mom. I love Marie, but I’d rather not schedule in sex

Second excerpt

Getting waxed

I heard a phone ring, thinking it belonged to the
salon. Nope, not my luck. The crazy wax witch
answered her phone
wasn’t like I could cover shit with my hands…well,
except for my belly button.
“Hello?” I sat up, annoyed and pissed off. “Open
vagina here.”
“No, I not busy.” She lifted her phone away from
her to talk to me. “Two minutes.”
When I looked at those two pointed fingers, I
wanted to poke her eyes out with them. I was trying to
get up, but she kept pushing by vagina down.
“Wait, we do you hole next.”
Hole next? What the fuck? That was just over the
top, even for me, so I just started doing the ugly
pregnant laugh-cry. Even if I were to tell someone this
story…seriously, who would believe this shit? Fuck my

Third excerpt


Drew stepped up behind me, placed his arms around my waist, and
breathed into my neck. “What game are you playing?”
I closed my eyes. “I'm only here to help your dad. This company is
going to rip him off.”
Drew's fingers slid around my collarbone and swept my hair around
to the other side of my neck. “How did you know?”


Oh man I'm not going to lie I fucking (excuse my language) loved this book. I could not put this book down. It was sassy, hot as hell, and full of drama. The sex in this book was wonderful, the language amazing, I laughed and cried while reading this book. My kids thought I was nuts laughing at a book that's how good it was. Kristen is this hot shot business negotiator who doesn't take shit from anyone. When her heart get's broken by her secret boyfriend she doesn't wallow. Hell no she picks up the peaces and some hotties and get's the job done. All the while Drew who is her brothers BFF plans ways to get her back. I can not say more without giving the entire book away. Kristen does have that best friend the one that kicks your butt when your down. All the characters have a part in this book and you will love how they come to life and bring you right there with them. Please read you won't regret it.
