Book Trailer


Animate Me is a fun and sexy contemporary romance.

Love struck animator, Nathan, has set his sights on Brooke, the Director of Development at their animation studio.

      He has worshipped her from afar for years and even created a comic book heroine named B-Girl in her likeness. When their paths cross he seizes the opportunity to make a good impression. As they grow closer a serious hindrance looms…her dwindling romance with Arnauld, head of the animation studio.

      When Arnauld realizes that Nathan is threatening his relationship with Brooke, he goes after him and it sparks an outrageous uprising at the studio. Havoc ensues from antics only a building full of creative cartoon people can create. In the midst of the drama Brooke has to decide whether to follow her heart or risk her impressive career, while Nathan pulls out all the stops to “woo” his girl.

      The conclusion has you cheering for our unlikely hero to capture his B-Girl’s heart…while he wins our hearts as well.

Excerpt from Animate Me:

“He wants me to get my breasts augmented…you know, bigger.”

“Why? They’re perfect,” I huff.

“How would you know, you’ve never seen them,” she teases.

“No, but I’ve held them. Well, technically one, but that gave me a pretty good indication. It felt so perfect to me.” I grin.

“Well, to be honest, I’ve always loved my breasts. I think they’re really pretty. Lately though, he seems to get off on huge breasts, and has no qualms telling me that.”

“I bet your breasts are much higher ranked than pretty…more like stunningly beautiful or fucking unforgettable. And being a bit of a breast aficionado I think my opinion holds more weight, than Mojo Jojo’s.”

She grins and I’m encouraged that her mood seems to be brightening.

“So now you’re an aficionado?” She teases.

“Well if you count studying them very carefully and drawing breasts thousands of times.” I pause and move my hands to rest on her thighs. “You know you could show me if you want a second opinion on how spectacular they are.”

“You want to see my breasts?”

“Yes, of course I do.” My heart is pounding.

“Are you going to touch them too?”

I swallow hard. “If you’ll let me.” Oh, please let me, Brooke. Please

She leans back and eyes me playfully. “Is this educational?”

“If you want it to be.” I’m getting nervous that she’s changing her mind. I can’t get this close to the Promised Land, only to find out that it’s closed for business. I reach up and tug on the edge of her T-shirt. “Don’t make me beg,” I tease.
