Now Available on
Amazon * * Barnes & Noble * Goodreads


Determined to establish a new life far from the ghosts of her past, twenty-two year old Sydney Paige is willing to try anything to launch her reporting career and quiet the painful memories of her family back home.

Money-driven Mason Lachlan knows exactly what he wants in life and how to get it. Nothing stands in the way of the successful millionaire’s next deal, not even the deeply-buried anguish he feels from being abandoned by his father and tucked away as a dark family secret.

When Sydney must report the biggest land deal to hit South Padre in years, Mason becomes the focus of her story. Problems surface when their undeniable attraction for each other compromises everything they both have worked for.

Can love exist when bottom lines and deadlines collide?

This is a standalone Contemporary Romance, there is NO cliffhanger!


Wow it took me way too long to remember that Mason from this story is Grey's uncle from the Kissing Eden series. I started Because of Sydney and thought I wonder if there is a book about Mason and Grey and Eden and how they all met. Then I was just like duh - I read that already! That is why I was excited to read this book! Come on Jen, get with it!

Because of Sydney was a fun summer read. I actually read it on the train going away for the weekend and it was perfect for that. It is light, and fun and just a good read. As I said above you meet Mason briefly in the Kissing Eden series, but you don't know to have read those books before reading this one. 

Mason is money driven. He does what he has to to make more money, to keep succeeding. He is currently in South Padre to buy a piece of land that has a trailer park on it and he is hoping everything will go smoothly. He does not count on Sydney and her affect on him. 

Sydney has just moved to the area and doesn't know many people. She is a reporter put on the story of who is buying the trailer park land and what they will do with it. She is not that good with development, doesn't know that much about it, but she needs this job. She needs to prove herself and so she tries her best. She keeps popping up where Mason is and it was fun watching the two of them. Mason doesn't do journalists as he likes to keep his private life private, but there is just something about Sydney. She has not had it the easiest, she has some skeletons in her closet, but they just work. She can open up to him and he to her. They were cute together. Slowly throughout the story they come together, get to  know each other, and it was wonderful to watch. 

I will say that at first they are not very good at communicating with each other. They start something just for fun, but of course that doesn't work for long. Sydney lashes out when she is hurt, but she won't say what is wrong. And Mason cannot fix something when he doesn't know what the issue is. It took them awhile, but they eventually get to their happily ever after. A fun read which I really enjoyed.
