I didn’t plan on him.

Or for him.

Or anything that had to do with Cal Donovan from Boston.

Meeting him had been a complete and utter surprise, taking me one hundred percent off guard. I met new people every single day in my line of work and none of them affected me. Wasn’t that the way of things though? You could meet a thousand people and they’d all mean nothing to you. But then you’d meet that one and they suddenly meant everything.

I couldn’t put this book down after I started it.  Even though I had a pretty good idea of how the book would end, I needed to know how they got there and everything in between. 

I was sucked into Jules and Cal’s story from the get-go.  They are both workaholics and had the determination to get where they wanted to be in their jobs and not allowing the opposite sex get in the way of that. 

When Jules and Cal meet other each in a bar during a conference she is attending, they hit things off.  But both are smart about their expectations and don’t try to read further into it.  They try to maintain friends and keep in touch over text and calls when Jules returns homes to California. 

I loved how real and honest this story was.  It felt like I was watching a movie based off a true story play out in front of me.  Both of their reactions were natural and can be easily relatable.  Jules actions were no surprised when she started thinking with her heart and not using her head like she had before Cal.  And Cal did things that I wasn’t really surprised at – I do have to say I thought he was a bit more mature to do what he did, but all men have their “douche canoe” moments in life.

Jenn always knows how to make you feel everything in her books.  There is no way around it.  Her writing and characters draw you in and you feel like you are right there.  Another fantastic hit for Jenn!

DEAR HEART, I HATE YOU - Tour Teaser 2


I was currently sitting at a table with my hand on Jules’s thigh, breaking my number-one rule: No women.
Work was too damn important to me, and women were a distraction. Even the best ones seemed to turn into something else once we started dating, taking on personality traits that hadn’t been there when we first met. They were good at hiding the parts of them they didn’t want you to see until just the right time. And while I understood that most women needed things from a relationship that were seemingly normal, like my time and attention, I couldn’t give it to them.
That was what led me to formulate my life plan in the first place—too many clingy, needy women, and my realization that I wasn’t ready for any of that yet. My plan was solid and ladies didn’t factor into it; at least, not for another three or so years. Yes, I even had a timeline.
Women had their own timelines. They wanted to be married by a certain age, have two point five kids and a house by another. The only problem was my timeline and theirs tended to be off by several years. I needed two more years to make partner within my firm, another six months or so to get settled into the role, and then—and only then—could women possibly come back into the equation, depending on what else I was involved in by that point.
Coldly categorizing my life into a series of boxes I wanted to check off wasn’t a romantic notion, but my career had nothing to do with romance and everything to do with reality. I wanted to be firmly rooted in it before allowing myself to be distracted by a relationship.
But right now, with my hand touching Jules’s thigh, my brain wasn’t the least bit involved, and I wasn’t sure what was real at this point. She was real. Her long blond hair and fierce green eyes, those were real.


J Sterling - headshotAbout J. Sterling:

I got fired from my last job.

It’s true.

I know you’re sitting there thinking, “Jenn, how could anyone in their right mind fire someone like you?” And I’d love to give you a good reason, but the truth is that sometimes being all sorts of awesome isn’t fun for other people. They don’t always tend to like it. lol

So I picked my pride off the floor, bought a laptop and started writing my first book. And you know what I realized? Writing stories that meant something to me was a million times better than working my ass off for someone who didn’t really care about anything other than the bottom line.

My soul has never felt more satisfied.

My heart has never been more full.

I’ve never worked so hard in my life, but I love every second of it. I truly do.

It is SO worth it.

All of it.

Every moment.

The journey it took to get to this point- I wouldn’t change a thing.
