"Sizzling from first page to the last– I couldn't put this book down!" - Jennifer Blackwood, author of USA Today bestselling The Rule Book

Chemistry that can make them lose their heads…and their hearts.

Sailor Carlson comes back to Boston to make amends with her dad, only to find he passed away, and his bar, the Alibi, now belongs to a bearded, grumpy hottie. Mr. Hottie liked her enough for a night of nameless sex on the kitchen counter, but he wants nothing to do with her now he knows who she is.

Ryan Edwards has been running the Alibi for seven years. Being in a bar night after night means he’s no stranger to one-night stands. But when the quirky, beautiful blonde he spent a hot night with shows up at his bar claiming it used to belong to her father, his guard goes right up.

Ryan’s desperate for a waitress, and Sailor wants a chance to work in the place that meant so much to her dad. If only the tenuous trust they establish were as strong as the pesky attraction simmering between them.

Each book in the Boston Alibi series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Book one: A Moment of Weakness
Book two: A Moment of Madness


"A girl walks into a bar holding a potted plant, and...OMG, what happens from there is funny, sexy, and pure magic!" -USA Today Best-selling Author Samanthe Beck

"This book was the perfect cocktail--a hilarious heroine that brings a deliciously sexy hero to his knees." -Jennifer Blackwood, USA Best-selling Author ofThe Rule Book

"Steamy, sexy, and emotionally charged. This book was impossible to put down!" -NYT& USA Today Best-selling Author Lauren Hawkeye

4 Stars: “I loved this book and the storyline was great….Ryan... aka Mr Grumpy. Grumpy? He's a surly hot mess. I had the whole love/hate thing going on with this one. It was fantastic!” - Lori Zenobia, Goodreads

5 Stars: “Ryan may be the strong, silent type, but his bedroom manner has Sailor's body singing...A MOMENT OF MADNESS is a journey of redemption, temptation, forgiveness and compromise.” - Isha Coleman, Goodreads

 4 Stars: “From the opening pages to the goofy grin inducing last page, you will fall and fall hard for Ryan and Sailor, I know I did...I already want to reread this book just because I enjoyed it so much. There is just something about seeing Ryan and Sailor fall for each other while having fun that makes this a special read. It was never too heavy or too light, it just felt right.” - Rachel Hamilton, The Sub Club Books

 4 Stars: “What a fun and quirky character Sailor was, and to be paired up with such a grouchy bear like Ryan was fantab...a winning combo for sure...the storyline was well-done and flowed well with a great cast of characters...WTG Ms. Skye!” - Katrina Berry, Goodreads

4 Stars: “I enjoyed [A] MOMENT OF MADNESS. I loved how Sailor was trying to redeem herself not in others eyes but her own. Ryan had a hard time setting aside the past, which was more than understandable.” - Johnaka, Seraphim Book Reviews

I was surprised by the depth of this book. It had my feelings all over the place (silly, happy, sad, nervous, angry and then I’d circle back and start over) but in a good way. I was deeply invested in both Sailor and Ryan. A Moment of Madness was a crazy good ride with two complex characters that re ...more

Sailor, a unique name for a very unique person. I loved her. She was hilarious in her inner dialogues. Heh heh. She was a commendable woman who learned from her mistakes after being lost for so long.

When I started writing this book last year, I had no idea how much I would enjoy creating this fun, witty couple. Sailor's silliness and utter lack of tact paired with Ryan's grumpy hotness had me literally laughing out loud as their scenes came to life.

I truly hope you fall in love with these two ...more

This book was cute and funny, as well as steamy. Sailor & Ryan's romance was a second chance of sorts. I enjoyed Sailor's inner dialogues, and the way she expressed herself. I found myself liking her immediately, and even after the author revealed why she left Boston, I still liked her.

I liked Ryan, ...more
