Hey, hiyadoin’? I’m happy to be on Makayla’s blog for the release of my book The Girl Upstairs, which will go on sale on April 6th through Romance Divine.
When I wrote this story in the summer of 2011, I was looking to write a sexy, hero-based story about a man who moved from the country into the big city, and falls for this beautiful woman that lives above him. Originally, the story was suppose to be short and erotic, but in late September I changed the format of the story and reverse the story around, making it about a man that moves from the big city to a small town, where he gets to know his sexy, voluptuous neighbor from upstairs.
I guess when people see of the title they are probably thinking about the movie The Girl Next Door where some kid falls in love with a porn-star that moves next door to him, but I’m sorry to disappoint you. The heroine of the story is not porn star; despite the erotic scenes involve in the story, but she is an independent woman who had a dark past.
The hero part of the story comes at the end, where he rescues his sexy neighbor from mortal danger. But the hero in the story is not a cop, nor a military man; he’s an “Ordinary Moe”. Also he doesn’t come save the day so easily, like most books do. He takes a pretty bad beating to protect her, but he is also saved by his upstairs neighbor in the end.
When I write these stories it is about having purpose between the hero and heroine of the story. I want to make sure that the interaction is intimate and the sex scenes are strong enough to turn you on, but most of all I want you to close the book feeling fulfilled of what I wrote.
So come April 6th, get your copy The Girl Upstairs and I guarantee you will feel fulfilled in this story.
Here is an excerpt to your story. Enjoy!

Carlos Munoz left New York and his financial analyst position for a simpler life in Pennsylvania. The slower pace and relaxed lifestyle took some getting used to, but came with certain…benefits, his upstairs neighbor. The voluptuous woman intrigued him, but what about her ex—and her policeman brother? Was part of Carlos’ new life going to include a new love? He had a lot to learn about…The Girl Upstairs.
If there was one thing special about the place he lived in, it was the kind of noises he heard from the upstairs bathroom. Most of the apartment was soundproof, but the radiator pipe that ran through the house into his bathroom allowed him to hear everything that went on upstairs.
Every morning, or evening, whenever he stood by the sink to brush his teeth or shave, he heard strange noises coming from upstairs. The noises came from his neighbor, sounding like she was either in pleasure—or pain. This happened often. Sometimes at night, he stood in his bathroom and listened to his neighbor’s screams of pleasure. To him, it seemed like the police officer was keeping her happy every time he stopped by.
Finally came the day when the two got to know each other. It happened on one October evening when Carlos was coming home from work. He’d checked his mailbox, found no mail, and headed inside his apartment. As he stepped into his kitchen, there was a knock on the door. He wondered who it was, and when he opened the door he found his upstairs neighbor standing there, holding a few letters in her hand.
“Hi,” he said.
“Hi.” With a sensuous smile, she handed him his mail. “I wanted to give you this. I was picking up mail when I noticed yours was mixed with mine.”
“Oh...thanks.” He took the letters from her.
She extended her hand, “Hi. I’m Bella. It’s finally nice to meet you.”
“Hi, I’m Carlos. Umm... My place isn’t ready, but would you like to come inside?” he offered.
“Sure.” She entered. “And I understand, getting settled after moving in takes time.”
Subtly checking her out, he tried not to drool over her shapely figure. “I’m sorry about the place. I need to finish unpacking.”
