A Heart Not Easily Broken(Butterfly Memories) by M.J.Kane

I received this wonderful review for A Heart Not Easily Broken on Amazon yesterday…after a long day, it made me smile. Reviews like this remind me that taking the time and putting in the hard work can pay off in the end. There’s nothing an author wants more than a happy reader! Thank you! 🙂

“This was my first time reading a book by M.J. Kane and I loved it. This book was so different from other IR books. Most IR books make you think that the couple’s relationship is fine and nobody has a problem seeing it. We live in the real world and no that that is not true. This author shows you the issues that the couples are really faced with. It may be complete strangers or even your friends and family that have a problem with it. I was glad that Ebony and Brian’s love was able to overcome the obstacles. Now I’m ready to read book #2.”

If you haven’t read A Heart Not Easily Broken, or the next Butterfly Memoir in the series, Jaded, visit this link to learn more about the series and the books. Hang out for a little while and read the First Chapters, check out the Character Bio’s, Diary Post, and Deleted Scenes!

Have a wonderful weekend!

#Loving Day Blog Hop: True Love Sees No Color, No Bounds

When I decided to write my first novel, I was nervous. I had never written anything other than a thirty page FanFic, and the idea of writing a complete story, especially one that involved love scenes, scared me. Yet, my Muse would not let me give up. So, I grabbed a laptop and started writing.

I knew from the beginning my heroine would be a black woman who was goal-oriented, lived clear across country from where she grew up, an was not looking for or in need of romance. I knew there would be a traumatic experience that would change her life and force her to question her ability to continue on the path she’d laid out for herself. What I did not know was what type of man would convince her to fall in love with him and have the ability to support her in all things, even when he does not realize there is a problem.

Being an African-American woman, you would think the hero would be a black man.

My Muse saw things differently.

I remember sitting on my bed writing the chapter in which Ebony Campbell first meets the hero. Now, mind you, this was in 2009 and the story was in its infant stages. The original scene had her and her friends at the beach when she meets a really handsome black man whom she flirts with. During the course of their conversation, his roommate approaches and the two characters are introduced. Brian Young is a blond haired, blue-eyed, white man with a devilishly handsome smile and cocky attitude. Something about him at that moment caught Ebony’s eye, and more importantly, my imagination.

Three years, and many revisions later, the black man that originally caught Ebony’s attention faded into the background, and Brian Young, rooted himself in both of our hearts. Thus, my decision to write Interracial Romance began.

I have not been in an interracial relationship, but I am a firm believer that love has no bounds. Skin color should not be the determining factor as to whether or not you allow yourself to be attracted to another person, nor fear of racial differences.  While family and friends have the ability to influence our decisions, it is up to us to decide what will make us happy. I tell my children if they fall in love with someone who is not black, the only thing that will concern me will be whether or not that person is good to them, loves them, and makes them happy…race does not matter.

Easier said than done, right? Even in 2013, when interracial dating is politically correct and a lot of people with raciest attitudes are dying off (as one fan who has read my book told me, lol) people’s thoughts about IR relationships behind closed doors still exist.

While writing A Heart Not Easily Broken, I researched couples who are in interracial relationships, read articles, books, questioned a few people I knew who were in relationships or the children of  IR couples. I imagined what my reactions would be like if I were Ebony, realistic reactions, not ones that are politically correct. I researched the marriage statistics of interracial couples (black women/white men to be exact) in different areas of the country. I watched couples in the city where I live. I say all of this because I wanted to be sure the story I wrote  focused on Ebony and Brian’s relationship realistically and not ignore or make up situations that would not ring true.

A Heart Not Easily Broken is a story about more than a black woman and white man struggling to be together. It is a story about two people from different backgrounds who recognize love when they find it. Yes, there are some issues the heroine faces because her upbringing is far different from Brian’s. She’s from the South where regardless of what we see on TV, the news, or any other media source, negative influences from family and friends still happen. Though it’s not as negative as it was in the past, it almost an unspoken thing that a young black woman knows bringing a white man home to momma may not go over very well. Despite the fact Ebony is a grown woman who has lived in California for the past seven years, it does not take away from her personal fear that her parents may not support her decision to be with Brian. As their relationship grows, Ebony’s fear dissipates and leads to a love that she never imagined existed.

I am proud to say A Heart Not Easily Broken has received over 80 5-Star Reviews from Amazon, Goodreads, and Barnes & Noble readers. My biggest compliment came a few weeks ago by a reviewer who said her child is in an interracial relationship and she could relate to the experiences had by Brian and Ebony.

A Heart Not Easily Broken(Butterfly Memories) by M.J.Kane

Ebony is a smart, sexy, career-oriented black woman who wants nothing more than a summer fling with a man who challenges her mind and body. What she doesn’t expect is a blond-haired, blue-eyed bass player—who won’t take “no” for an answer—to accept the challenge.

When Ebony’s attempt at a brief fling turns into more, despite negative reactions from friends and family, she finds juggling love, family, and career are nothing compared to the ultimate betrayal she endures. Now her dreams spiral into lies and secrets that threaten her future and her best friend’s trust.

#8Sunday- First Impressions

The fun part of writing a book is describing how characters see each other, especially if it’s for the first time. In A Heart Not Easily Broken, Ebony and Brian’s first encounter was in a night club beneath strobe lights, the ‘masks’ were on, and first impressions hard to see. A few days later they meet again and she gets to see the real him, no night lights, no masks….all real….And man, is she impressed!

Excerpt: 

His long torso, free of body fat, sported a light sprinkling of blond hair between his pecs.  His abdomen showed every cut of muscle I’d seen in high school biology textbooks. His abs were tight, his belly button nearly nonexistent.

Brian’s bronzed skin reminded me of a Greek statue, a testament of many hours spent working outside. His backward baseball cap hid the thick blond curls I’d seen at the club. The damp ringlets hung below its rim, accentuating his square facial structure and the shape of his nose. His blue eyes seemed to glow from deep within his skin.

Brian was unbelievably sexy.

Music to Fuel the Muse…

Nearly every author uses music when they write. Some use it to drown out the noise of life around them, while others use certain songs to inspire emotion and action in a scene. Numerous songs have found their way into book titles and inspired  entire novels.

Music is a part of my family, a part of my life, and has defiantly found its way into my writing.

Both of my sons have had a love of music since the day they were born. My oldest, who graduates high school next week, (and I am proud to say he will be starting college in the fall to get his Bachelors in Music), has played in the Orchestra since he was in sixth grade. Over the years he’s learned to play, and mastered,  the Bass, and the bass guitar. He also plays the acoustic guitar and keyboard. My youngest son, who is completing his first year in middle school, has taken the path of percussion. Part of me is dreading the day we buy a full set of drums! But like watching my oldest son mature as a musician, watching his younger brother do the same will be a joy!

My husband is a recording engineer and music producer. His studio is in our home and located across the house from my office. Over the years I’ve watched numerous talented artist – from rappers, singers, poets, lyricist, and musicians – cross my doorway. They have eaten with my family, and crashed on my couch.  (Visit this link to hear some of the music he’s produced and artist he’s worked with.) One of my favorite songs he has produced is Off The Chain performed by Immo Stax. If you love Rap/Hip Hop, you have to check this one out!

Now, with each new artist comes a story and inspiration for some of my characters.  Brian Young of A Heart Not Easily Broken, is one to be exact.

In my latest novel, Jaded, neither character is a musician, yet the entire story was inspired by one song. Love Calls by Kem.

While the story has the premise of friends who choose to sleep together and a relationship that leads to more, Jaded is NOT your typical friends-turned-lovers story. The story doesn’t end with the moment they decide to sleep together….that is the moment the story truly begins.

Love Calls found it’s way into my writing not only as the  theme song, but as the defining moment, catalyst if you will, of two people letting their guard down long enough to realize there could indeed be more to their relationship. Watch the video and read this excerpt….and let yourself get lost in the song and dance….

Excerpt:

Our slow circuit brought us near the open doors leading inside where the reception was in full swing.  We watched the party goers enjoy the music. A popular song involving a complicated two-step routine had the older couples on the dance floor while younger ones moved aside to clap and cheer.

“I never have been able to do that dance,” I commented.

“It’s not difficult. I can teach you if you want.”

I smirked.

“What? My mom taught me.”

This time I laughed. “Why does that not surprise me?”

He extended a hand. “Come on, I’ll show you.”

I studied his palm, then his eyes. “Why the hell not?” I shrugged out of his jacket, setting it neatly on an empty patio chair.

Zack wasted no time walking me through the steps. Within minutes, he had me twirling and laughing. I was impressed. Not only was the man a good teacher, he had some good moves. Two songs later, we were laughing like children.

What would I have done if he hadn’t come tonight?

As promised, he’d done his part in distracting me from dwelling on the depressing aspects of my life.

All too soon, a slow song played, giving the couples a break. Both of my hands were in his when I released my hold.

Zack didn’t. I looked at our hands, then up into his eyes. The deep hazel irises darkened as his gaze went from fun to something else.

“We should sit down,” I managed, trying to convince myself the increased heartbeat was a result of dancing.

“I disagree.” He released one of my hands and slipped a hand around my waist instead.

It was impossible to escape the sensual smell of his cologne up close and personal mixed with the musk of flesh damp from dancing. A rush of desire covered me from head to toe.

“What are you afraid of?” he challenged.

Um, being this close? Wanting him? Falling for him?

“Nothing.” I put as much steel in my voice as I could muster. Liar, liar…

Zack pulled me close, taking control, moving our bodies as one. His gaze never left mine. It was as if we were the only two people listening to the music. The clinks of glasses, short bursts of laughter, the sound of children running around the room, were inconsequential.

I became a slave to the sultry sound of a bass guitar, the hypnotic rhythm of drums, and melodic voice of the singer. Zack assumed full control of my body as he guided us in a seductive sway.

Okay, I was used to the strength of a man’s arms and feel of firm muscles pressed against me. I could handle the ripples of desire running through me, making my knees weak.

What I could not ignore was the heat from his gaze as it explored my mouth, the warmth of his breath against my cheek, or the gentle slide of fingers along my waist as he enveloped me in his arms.

To make matters worse, the lyrics of the song hit every nerve. They spoke of ignoring the pain of past relationships and accepting love again.

I closed my eyes in an attempt to find pieces of the wall I had built around my heart. It was impossible; Zack had chiseled them away in the short time we’d known each other. The pain plaguing me from past relationships was easily forgotten while in his arms.

“Yasmine…” His whisper was husky, the laughter from earlier gone. “Look at me.”

I did.

Never had a man’s gaze pulled me in this hard. Desire replaced reasoning, a feeling so strong it could not be ignored. How did this happen? Was it the theme of the day, the alcohol consumed, or the fact this man seemed to have eyes only for me?

Zack gazed hungrily at my mouth and licked his lips.

Panic built inside. This could not be happening. I couldn’t ignore the fact I wanted it, maybe even needed it to happen.

“Yasmine…”

My lips parted of their own volition as Zack lowered his mouth to mine.

The moment our lips connected, the world stood still. Breathing ceased as desire exploded inside of me, drawing me deep into forbidden territory.

#TeaserTuesday- Getting Ready for the First Date

I was watching TV, a pastime that has gone from pure entertainment to a study of television writers style of story telling. The episode of the show I was watching was entitled First Date. During the episode, the main character talked to her best friend about the nervous jitters she had in anticipation for the evening. It made me think back to a conversation held by Ebony Campbell and her best friend, Yasmine Phillips in A Heart Not Easily Broken.

Since when has it been simple for a woman to pick out clothing for a first date?

Excerpt:

“What does he like? You know, what has he commented on? What has his roving eye looked at when he’s not staring at you?”

“Um, his attention is always on me. Plus, he says I look good in anything, even my work clothes.”

“What the hell?” She rubbed her eyes. “Okay, he’s one of those.”

“One of what?”

“A man who’s always giving compliments to suck up.”

I loved Brian’s compliments. He never gave the impression of trying to get something in return. His facial expressions made it obvious that what he said came from the heart.

“Alright, what has he seen you in?” She eyed the clothes pile. “Jeans?”

“Not exactly, Capri’s, yes.”

“Dress?”

“That skin tight number the night we met.”

“Told you it would work.” She gave me a smug smile. “Shorts?”

“Yes, on Sunday, the day we kissed.”

“Hmm, how about this?”

I turned to see what she held. “Perfect.”

“Now for hair and make-up.”

At exactly two o’clock, the doorbell rang.

“I’ll get it,” Yasmine yelled from downstairs.

I finished tying the strings of my wedge heels around my legs and made sure I sprayed perfume in all the right places. I took a deep breath and stood in front of the mirror. Yasmine had a hidden talent for dressing people.

“Well hello, Brian, right? I’m Yasmine It’s nice to meet you.”

I could hear Yasmine’s voice floating up the steps.

“Hi, Yasmine. I’m here to pick up Ebony,” he replied.

God, I loved to hear him say my name.

“Sure, come in. She’ll be down in a minute.” The door closed. “Take care of my girl.”

“I will.”

When I heard her coming up the steps, I counted to ten and composed myself.

She stopped at my doorway and winked. “He’s a keeper. Nice lips.” She laughed and disappeared into her room.

Brian’s back was to me when I walked down the stairs. He appeared relaxed with his thumbs hooked in the pockets of his jeans. He had the same black sneakers and a deep blue shirt that was the same shade as his eyes. Blue was fast becoming my favorite color. His blond curls with dark undertones were shorter than when I last saw him.

“Hi,” I said upon reaching the bottom step.

He turned around and his eyes traveled over my outfit. “Damn.”

I wore a floral print halter-top accented with red lace trim that molded to my waist and breasts perfectly. The tan background complimented my skin and the floor-length skirt fit like a glove. A long, sexy slit ran from the hem to the middle of my thigh and gave him an eyeful every time I moved my leg.

“You look,” he cleared his throat, “amazing.”

#8Sunday- Jaded (Book Two of The Butterfly Memoirs)- Words of Wisdom

When I write, I like to incorporate the point of view of an outside character who steps in as a voice or reason or wisdom. Doing so gives the reader a chance to see how the characters actions are viewed by someone outside of that intimate relationship. In the case of Yasmine and Zack, the voice comes from Zach’s mother, Belinda Givens. Listen to her words of wisdom as she speaks to a very upset Yasmine.

Excerpt:

I tapped her chest lightly. “A good heart. You’re selfless and care about others. You’re just the kind of woman my son needs. Sweetheart, if you let him, my son will take care of you in every way he can. He’ll be anything you need him to be and then some. You two were made for each other.”

“That’s what scares me the most.”

Jaded – Book Two of The Butterfly Memoirs Blog Tour!

Welcome to the Jaded Blog Tour!!!

I don’t know who’s more excited…me, readers, or the characters!

Today marks the release of the second novel in The Butterfly Memoirs Series….YAY!!!! For those of you who have followed me for the past year, and have read A Heart Not Easily Broken, you have met Yasmine Phillips. Throughout the novel, she came across to many as confident, a bit loose, and stuck on herself. By the end of the novel, she was a devastated woman left to pick up the pieces from a relationship she thought was real. A lot of readers thought her reaction to learning about Ebony and Javan would be different based on the way she’s depicted.

But as they say, never judge a book by its cover.

And now it’s time to pull back the cover of Jaded

5.0 out of 5 stars I Loved it!, March 23, 2013
Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

Yasmine and Zack’s story is beautifully written and I couldn’t have not asked for except for it not to end. This story was a very emotional read for me I cried because it was very touching. Two people who were hurt by love and afraid of it but choosing to be there for each other friends. The concept of friends falling in love is not new to romance writing but the way this story is written is very unique and wonderful. The way that Zack always seemed to know what Yasmine needed him, he was the best friend that she could ask for. I also liked the reappearance of Ebony and Kaitlyn and I look forward to reading what happens Kaitlyn next. Good job M.J. Kane you did a great job of writing about two people who were afraid of love finding it again.

This review is from: Jaded (The Butterfly Memoirs) (Kindle Edition)

Book Two of this series was well worth the wait! Zack and Yasmine story is up next and you are truly in for one heck of a treat. Both Zack and Yasmine are damage goods from previous relationship and both afraid to take a chance on love again. This story touches on topics like trust,love, acceptance and death and when M.J. put them all together you get a beautifully written love story. The story line to Jaded was truly amazing and this book is definitely a page turner. Very nicely done M.J. and I look forward to the next installment….
