Austin Series Synopsis

Following the lives of Mia Page and her best friend Lexi Clarke as they embark on a new life at University in England, The Austin Series is about personal growth, sexual awakening, the bonds of friendship, first love, and the development of trust in a sexual and romantic relationship, with the view to the ultimate commitment and a happy ever after.

When Mia and Lexi made a pact to change their lives, Mia planned on losing her virginity by embarking on a sex no strings affair. Having been abandoned by her father and let down by her first boyfriend, she was terrified of being hurt again, so sex was all she was prepared to offer. Her plan to remain completely detached, and leave her emotions at the door, were completely shattered by the gorgeous and very persistent Gabe Austin. As well as being her first sexual encounter, Gabe soon starts to chip at the walls around her heart with a view to winning her over completely. He wants to possess her, heart, body and soul. Their sexual and romantic journey forms the basis of the entire series, but due to their combined baggage, the ride is far from smooth. They are meant to be, but they will have to fight to try and hold onto each other and find a way to survive what life throws at them.

“C.J. Fallowfield weaves this beautiful love story with angst, suspense, mystery, humour, hot steamy sex scenes and lots of love. I found myself on the edge of my seat several times.

If you were to pass me on the street, you probably wouldn’t even look twice. I’m that normal. I’m just like you, only wealthier. I have it all. The kids, the family, the dog, a house on the hill. Hell—I’m so cliché, I even have a white picket fence. I guess you could say that I’ve dotted my I’s and crossed my T’s. But what I also have—what no one sees in yoga, or at Nieman Marcus, or during the dreadful Ladies Who Lunch charity events I attend (because only God knows why), and perhaps most importantly, in the school pick up line—are secrets.
Deep, dark, deadly secrets.
We all keep secrets, don’t we? We all have thoughts in our heads, things we do, things about us that if people knew, they’d be shocked…right? Well, what if one day we just decided to let the cat out of the bag, so to speak.
What if we decided to let the whole world in on our dirty little secrets? And what if along the way, as we were spilling those secrets, we realized that things aren’t always what they seem and with that knowledge, it changed the whole story?
In this book, I’m laying it all out there. The unraveling of my life. My coming undone. What one might’ve seen had they been paying attention.
What I’ve found in life is people often believe lies before they’ll believe the truth. Well, here it is, in a nutshell. I’ll let you decide which is which.

Jessica watched him go as she dug her toes further into the wet sand and squeezed them, watching as the muddy water poured over her feet and enveloped them. She let him get a ways ahead before she allowed herself to smile—just a little. All along she’d let him think he was breaking her, but maybe, just maybe, they’d actually been breaking each other.
Author Bio

For those of you who prefer it straight up, no chaser: Mama to five. Writer. Juggler Extraordinaire. That just about covers it…

The extended version and in third person no less ;): Britney is married to a man she adores (when he isn’t driving her crazy) and is the mother of FIVE pretty amazing kids, who (surprise!) also have a habit of driving her crazy. Her best guess is that it’s genetic. She is the author of three novels, Bedrock, Breaking Bedrock, and Somewhere With You, with plans to release fourth and fifith in 2014. In addition, she founded a local network for women in 2012, which has grown to almost 1200 members. Currently, she occupies a job she enjoys–serving and running Austin Women’s Network. To further prove that she may in fact be certifiably insane, she decided to pursue her dreams and published her debut novel in May of 2013. Then and only then, could she consider her training to be an expert (life) juggler complete.
She would love it if you would connect with her via Facebook and Twitter.
In her free time, you might find Britney running, reading, or spending time utilizing the wonderful venues that make her city great.
