Today I am so pleased to welcome Davidson King to Joyfully Jay. Davidson has come to talk to us about her latest release, Head Rush. She has also brought along a great giveaway. Please join me in giving her a big welcome!



“What in the happy horseshit is this?” I turned to find Mace, his hands on his hips, glowering.

“Mace, hi. This is my friend Elizabeth. Also, my work partner on our—”

“Friend?” He actually tapped his foot. “You two were awfully close for friends.”

Elizabeth giggled, and I realized we were still close, so I stepped back. “No, just friends.”

“I was hoping…” Elizabeth started to say.

“Hoping what? That Rush here would leave his devoted and loving boyfriend for you?” Mace took a couple of steps toward us and narrowed his eyes. “Homewrecker.”

“Okay, that’s enough.” I stood between them. Elizabeth’s gasp and the clear embarrassment on her face was what I’d wanted to avoid but alas…Mace.

“I didn’t know he had a boyfriend!” Elizabeth pivoted and was now in front of me. “You’re nosy and not minding your business.”

“I live here!” Mace shouted.

Of course Gino and Del were simply watching and not helping in the slightest. But I was rescued soon enough.


Christopher stood in the middle of the stairs leading to the foyer, his voice booming and powerful. Simon was beside him and while Christopher was angry, Simon was completely confused.


head gamesA Haven Hart Novel


All I want is to finish college, live life as a musician, and love the man of my dreams. That man, however, is Simon Manos, nephew of crime boss Christopher Manos, and there’s a war brewing on the streets of Haven Hart. Achieving my dreams has to be done while ducking bullets, trying not to get blown up, and hoping enemies don’t kill me.


I love Rush and want him to have everything he could ever hope for—all that his father denied him. As the heir to the Manos family business, it’s not quite that simple; I have responsibilities to fulfill. Haven Hart is getting dangerous, enemies need to be dealt with, and unfortunately, our dreams of the future must be put on hold.

We call on old friends and band together to face a common threat. When we’re forced into hiding, the situation escalates and the odds don’t seem to be in our favor. We do the only thing we can…stand our ground to the bitter end. As our lives start to fall apart, the unasked question is posed: Will someone have to make the ultimate sacrifice to save everyone?

This book follows after Secret Simon. It’s highly recommended you read that first.

As a child, you would often find her in her own world, thinking up the most insane situations. It may have taken her awhile, but she made her dream come true with her first published work, Snow Falling.

She managed to wrangle herself a husband who matched her crazy and they hatched three wonderful children.

If you were to ask her what gave her the courage to finally publish, she’d tell you it was her amazing family and friends. Support is vital in all things and when you’re afraid of your dreams, it will be your cheering section that will lift you up.
