Book Description:

Whore. Slut. Typhoid Mary. 

I've been called all these at Central College. One drunken night, one act of irresponsible behavior, and my reputation was ruined. Guys labeled me as easy and girls shied away.  To cope, I stayed away from Central social life and away from Central men, so why is it that my new biology lab partner is so irresistible to me?

He's everything I shouldn't want. A former Marine involved in illegal fighting with a quick trigger temper and an easy smile for all the women. His fists aren't the danger to me, though, it's his charm. He's sliding his way into my heart and I'm afraid that he's going to be the one to break me.

Impulsive. Unthinking. Hot tempered.

I allow instinct to rule my behavior. If it feels good, do it, has been my motto because if I spend too much time thinking, I'll begin to remember exactly where I came from. At Central College, I've got fighting and I've got women and I thought I was satisfied until I met her.  

She's everything I didn't realize I wanted and the more time I spend with her, the more I want her. But she's been hurt too much in the past and I don't want to be the one to break her. I know I should walk away, but I just can't.

Author’s Take on AnnMarie from Unspoken
By Jen Frederick

Due to copyright, please link to the dream cast picture of AnnMarie.

I knew AnnMarie had to be strong to overcome what happens to her at Central but even the strongest person is worn down over time by the innuendos and constant mocking.  She’s lucky that she has good friends or she probably would have left Central College. Some people may even wonder why she doesn’t.  Bo certainly thought it was foolish for her to stay.

But AnnMarie tells us and Bo that she did nothing wrong and leaving would be giving in, allowing her enemies to win. She doesn’t give in. And it’s her never quit attitude that makes her so attractive to Bo. It’s her tenacity and strength that makes it so she can handle whatever Bo has to throw at her.

His past doesn’t matter to AnnMarie anymore than her past matters to him. It’s the life that they can make together that counts.

AnnMarie is a girl that I wished I could’ve been. I never went through what she suffered and so I don’t know if I would’ve caved and left or fought for myself but I’d like to envision myself as AnnMarie, holding strong and finding the courage to stand up for myself and others.

FunFact: AnnMarie wants to go into insurance because that’s the business her dad is in. She wants to be just as successful, no more successful, than her father.

(Woodlands, #1)

For four years, Grace Sullivan wrote to a Marine she never met, and fell in love. But when his deployment ended, so did the letters. Ever since that day, Grace has been coasting, academically and emotionally. The one thing she's decided? No way is Noah Jackson - or any man - ever going to break her heart again.
Noah has always known exactly what he wants out of life. Success. Stability. Control. That's why he joined the Marines and that's why he's fighting his way - literally - through college. Now that he's got the rest of his life on track, he has one last conquest: Grace Sullivan. But since he was the one who stopped writing, he knows that winning her back will be his biggest battle yet.
