Moving Forward By Erika Taylor

Cover by Brett Fabrizio

Jesika Reynolds’ heart was left broken one year ago when her husband 

died, leaving her and her son alone in this world. Slowly, she started 

putting the pieces back together of her life. Knowing that she may never 
open herself up to love again. That was until the day Derek came into the 

Why does this gorgeous stranger seem to care so much, so suddenly?

Derek Jordan's charm drew her in with an instant connection, and 
familiarity that helps her feel at ease. Her heart is falling at his feet, but 
as their relationship grows, so does a secret from both of their pasts that 
neither saw coming. One by one, the threads slowly start to unravel.
Can their newly sought love stand up against the secrets that life is 
unlocking to their pasts? Or can they decide together that moving forward 
and forgetting the past is the only option for them to find true happiness?


Another book I'm highly anticipating and that's on my Goodreads TBR! Moving Forward by Erika Taylor looks so awesome! Oh yea, I'm doing this.................................................................................................

I have a feelings it's going to be a real ROCKING read! Now for a little "taste" of Moving Forward:

Let me start off by saying, I love my bestie Mallory all the time but sometimes… I really, 
really love her. She always knows how to pick my spirits up, or how to get me to do something 
I think is completely crazy, but is actually so needed. So, with that being said, the fact I haven’t 
seen Derek in four days sucks. No, scratch that, it completely blows. 
Admitting that I actually have a crush on someone is still hard to admit to myself. It 
almost feels like I’m cheating on Jake. The fact that I’m thinking about seeing Derek more than 
thinking about how much I miss Jake is making me feel somewhat guilt ridden. Then again, I 
also know that it is something I need, I know I will never forget Jake…no matter who is in my life 
but that doesn’t make it any easier. I’m kinda confused by these sudden feelings I’m having for 
someone who is practically a stranger. 
When I get home after being thoroughly disappointed again that there was no Derek at 
the school, I feel like I’m about to Hulk out. Maybe it’s the way he left me Friday night…a little 
worked up, hot and bothered, moisten between my legs…freaking feeling like a lioness in heat. 
He’s a freaking tease. He did this to me on purpose. 
I walk into my room and on my bed is a little purple with yellow polka dots gift bag with a 
card sticking out. I take the card out and it reads ‘Thinking of You in Your Time of Need’ on the 
“Humph….” I say to no one in the room. I open the card and read it aloud. “Hey Jes! I 
know you’d never buy this for yourself, but trust me when I say, you need it! Seriously, I am your 
Best Friend. Love ya, Mal.” 
I dump the bag over and pull the pink tissue paper away. “What the hell is that?” I say, 
again to no one. I pick it up and I swear I’m holding a bedazzled tampon holder. It’s small, fits in 
my hand and it’s slightly bigger than a lipstick holder. I go to open it and the damn thing starts 
buzzing and shaking in my hand. I drop it. 
Holy shit! 
Mallory bought me a battery operated toy. I start laughing thinking about our 
conversation after the concert. She was so right, I would never buy myself a battery operated 
toy or any kind of sex toy. 
For the last year, sex has been the last thing on my mind. The fact that I’m now 
experiencing some signs of sexual tension makes me blush as the butterflies start to flap 
around because I know damn well who is responsible for these reincarnated feelings. 

Just so you know Erika Taylor is absolutely hysterical in her day-to-day life, too!  Here's your chance to "get" to know her a little better ..........

Erika Taylor was born into the army lifestyle as an only child. Being the 
only child, she learned to keep herself entertained by unleashing her inner 
tomboy. Fishing, navigating through the woods and tree climbing were a 
few of her favorite escapes as a child along with her fast growing love of 
video games. While she is still a down home girl at heart, she grew to love 
music and left the wildness behind. She is a devoted lover of music and a 
closet groupie. Genre of choice is always rock but she has been known to 
kick it old school from time to time and jam to the 90s greatest hits. Her 
passion for music fueled her imagination and she has since found at age 
twenty-nine that she loves to read. While reading didn’t seem to interest 
her growing up you will almost always find her with her nose in a book 
nowadays. Erika is currently a native to Oklahoma where she lives with 
her husband and five small children that they have combined between the 
two of them. She admits to loving caramel frappe’s, getting her hair done, 
Ace Ventura When Nature Calls and candy of choice being Airheads. She blames The Hunger Games book series for her newly formed addiction to 
reading, which has since brought on her desire to write. She is currently 
working on her debut novel “Moving Forward” set to release March 23rd, 2013.
