Promo – Blueprint by RJ Jones

Please welcome RJ Jones to the blog!


All Romance Ebooks


If only building the foundation for a lasting relationship was as easy as drafting the blueprint.

Jet Black doesn’t date. Even if he wanted a man beyond sex, his ever-watchful identical twin scares potential suitors away. Jet lives with his brother, but since Gray fell in love with Kris, Jet feels like a third wheel. Despite their bond, Jet knows he needs to move out and experience life for himself, whether Gray likes it or not.

After his father dies in a boating accident, Ethan Nichols is devastated. As the last survivor of his family, he realizes the need to put down roots. He leaves Australia and returns home to San Francisco and his old architectural firm. But there’s more to building a new life than simply moving house.

Jet and Ethan’s first encounter is brash and anonymous, but when Ethan moves across the hall, their lives become irrevocably linked. Jet is quirky and fun loving, while Ethan is rock steady and dependable. There’s no denying the passionate spark between them.

But Ethan is looking for a more solid foundation than Jet is ready to offer. Until Jet learns to spread his wings and trust Ethan with his darkest secrets, building a life together will be impossible.

**This can be read as a standalone, however it is best enjoyed reading the series in order as side characters play a major role.**

About the Author:

RJ started as a reader and eventually made the progression to reviewing. It wasn’t until two men popped into her thoughts, insisting on telling her their story that she started to write. It started with one scene. A hot and dirty one in the shower.

RJ’s initial thought was if she could write their scene then they’d shut up and allow her to concentrate on other aspects of the day. That shower scene was 3000 words long and three hours of work.  But they didn’t shut up.  They told her their entire story and she didn’t sleep for days.  Sometimes she couldn’t keep up with what they were telling her and she had to keep a notebook by the bed.

Whilst RJ was writing their story a side character decided he needed his story told too. Then other characters followed suit.

You see the problem? If RJ ever wants to sleep again then she needs to write.
RJ is a wife and a mother to two boys. Even her dog is a boy.
She is surrounded by males.

RJ writes emotionally charged, character driven romances. Her guys will always get their HEA, but it will never be easy.

Jet was in the kitchen pouring coffee when I went back in. “Who were you talking to?”

“Gray wanted to thank me for the support over the weekend.”

Jet handed me a steaming mug. “It’s nice my brother is accepting now. Makes my life a lot easier.”

“I bet. Here.” I put the cup on the counter before taking the spare key off the hanger on the kitchen wall. I pressed it into his hand. “I want you to have this.”

Jet glanced at his hand, then met my eyes. His gaze bounced between me and the small silver object. “You want…”

I lifted his chin so he had no choice but to look at me. “I want you to come and go as you please. I want you to feel as comfortable here as you do across the hall, and I’m going to clear out a drawer so you don’t have to keep going home in the clothes you wore the day before.” I would’ve loved to ask him to move in with me then and there, but I knew how big that would be for him, and how difficult. Baby steps, Ethan.

“You’re giving me a key and a drawer?”

I kissed the corner of his mouth. “Yes. I am.”

“I don’t know what to say.”

“Say ‘Thank you, Ethan. I love you.’”

Jet’s dark eyes shone with moisture. “Thank you, Ethan. I love you too.”

I swatted his ass, laughing. “Now go on home and get dressed for work. I’ll see you tonight.”

When north meets south, sparks fly.


Adrian is a student from a northern college transferring to Georgia Tech. Used to seeing snowmobiles outnumbering the cars on campus, Adrian finds himself living in a state hotter than hell and feeling completely lost in the heart of Atlanta. A chance encounter introduces him to Davis who Adrian knows is trouble, but can’t help falling for.

Davis is the picture of big man on campus and oozes with confidence, at least until he meets Adrian.  Something about Adrian has Davis’s usual charm flying out of the window and everything goes from smooth to hell as Davis tries to make Adrian his own.

Between awkward dates, second-degree burns, study sessions, and snow, the two stumble their way into a relationship neither had planned. Will Davis give up the bachelor life to take a chance at a relationship with Adrian, or will he walk away from something special just to stick to his original plan?


Ten minutes until kickoff and it was like every person in the student body had showed up. Adrian was squished next to Mark and a girl wearing glitter tattoos on her cheeks. She and her friend were taking selfies, and somehow, Adrian got tugged into one.

“What’s your name?” the girl hollered.

He leaned in, yelling, “Adrian.”

“Mara.” She smiled over at him.

“Mara!” a guy called from behind them, then he landed on Adrian’s back.

“Careful, Davis!” Mara yelled.

Bending over from the weight of the guy, Adrian would have face-planted into the person in front of him if it hadn’t been for Mark grabbing his shirt. The fucking game hadn’t started, and he was about to be on the injury list. And Adrian wasn’t even playing in the game!

“Whoa, whoa, whoa.” The guy on his back grabbed him and wrapped an arm around Adrian’s chest.

The person in front of him turned with a scowl on his face before he smirked at the man behind him and raised his hand. “Davis!”

Hands clapped over his head, and the damn bull in the china shop behind him still had his arm around Adrian.

The two chatted above him, and Adrian glanced over at Mark who was rolling his eyes. “That’s Davis.”

Oh yeah, because that explained everything. It’s Davis so it’s natural to start chatting it up with Adrian snuggled right in. Boundaries, people, boundaries. Apparently, tackle-boy Davis seemed to know everyone since people all around shouted his name. Adrian felt Davis’s deep chuckle and wondered why the hell he was still being held by him.

Adrian turned and glanced over his shoulder, then kind of wished he hadn’t. Davis was laughing while talking to the guy Adrian almost fell into before. Davis was hot… like hotter than Atlanta. Black hair and a five o’clock shadow around a strong jaw. Built enough to belong on the football field and damn, and he had light ice-blue eyes. Adrian had an urge to reach out and touch Davis’s face to make sure he was fucking real. The only thing that detracted from the model-perfect looks was a small scar on his bottom lip, which Adrian thought was sexy as hell. The white line bisected plump full lips, which made Adrian want to kiss it. And he shouldn’t be thinking that.

With a small twist of his arm, Adrian was free of Davis. He glanced back at him.

“Don’t trample the newb, Davis,” Luke hollered from down the row.

Davis’s blue eyes glinted in the noonday sun, and a crooked smile appeared on his face. Adrian felt like prey in the presence of a predator, trapped by a sea of fifty-five thousand people.

I know that it’s been a long time since I gave you all an update on Joie. She is doing so great! She is working with mentors in high school and her grades have never been better. Plus, we no longer have the hair-pulling homework moments, because she gets all of her assignments done at home.

Now, here is the best part, we have found out that she is an incredible artist. I guess I shouldn’t have been so surprised. When she was younger and couldn’t talk, she used to draw pictures of what she wanted. That practice continued on through grade school.

What I find most amazing about her artwork is the intricate details she puts into her drawings. She gets every feather of a bird, every leaf on a tree, every cloud in the sky so perfectly. It showed me that she looks at the world in a whole different way. While most of us gloss over the fine details, she catches them and projects them in her work.

Another thing is she is a remarkable writer. She uses all the fifty-cent words and she actually knows what they mean. She has the ability to describe a scene so vividly that you feel as if you are actually there. The plot bunnies that this girl comes up with are amazing.

She has had two incidents with bullies. One was in gym class. A boy that had made fun of her in high school started to trash talk her. Then it came time to hit the track. Joie lapped him not one, but TWICE! She showed him who was boss.

The second time a kid tried to bully her, an upper classman came in and told him to back off. That gives me some hope that the older students have learned that bullying is a horrible thing and are trying to stop it.

I still can’t believe that she is fifteen-years old. She has grown up so fast on me. I treasure each day I have with her.
