5 of 5 Learning To Live
Learning to live is one of the most amazing stories I have read in 2014. I have to say that I am not sure why I did not hear about this book when it came out in 2013 because it is that amazing. I mean the way the story starts out you think okay another girl in trouble then something tragic happens to her and she moves on but there is so much more to this story that had me at the edge of my seat wondering holy eff what is going on here.
Trudy Love has not had the best of life. She lost her parents and grew up in foster care. Always going from one home to the next keeping her head low and never getting into trouble. She finds a boyfriend who she thinks is great but turns out to be a nightmare. He is abusive amongst other things he does to her. Then one day tragedy strikes her and strikes her hard and she decides she needs a change of scenery and decides going to college is her way out. Once she gets to college she sees a whole new life for herself and she begins to get friends and experience things she never did before. She also meets a Jaxon Coleman and she knows her life is about to change because feelings she has never felt stir in her and they only stir for Jax.
Jaxon Coleman has had a very privileged life but he is not one of those arse holes that are conceited or snobby. All he wants to do is follow in his fathers foot steps and go to med school and become the best doctor he can be. Jax has his life mapped out and nothing is going to deter him from reaching his goals and dreams. Well that is until he meets Tru. Tru comes in his life like a storm and changes everything for him and no matter what he tries he can't get over Tru. So instead of fighting the feelings he has he goes full fledged ahead and pursues Tru.
Will Jax be able to get through Tru's walls? Or will he give up?

5 of 5 Learning To Heal
Learning to Heal is the second book in the learning series and let me tell you something man I have read a lot of series and a lot of love stories but what I haven't read a lot of is how the underdog fights their way to the top and ends up with a good person. The chemistry between these characters and the secondary characters is something like no other. They support one another and they fight for what is right. They don't second guess or go with the majority of the crowd and that is why I have fallen in love with this series. R.D. knows how to draw you in and keep you there reading and wanting more and lord I stayed up till 3am reading this book and I was not tired the next day because I kept thinking about Jazz and Mason and their story of how it started and how it ended.
Jasmine Coleman is a good girl with a big heart a very big heart. So when she loves she loves hard. But the problem with loving someone is that they might not feel the same way and you can get very hurt if you are not careful and that is what keeps happening to Jazz until she meets Mason.
Mason is what a true man is to me because he is going to college and taking care of his mother. He does everything for her and makes sure his mother wants for nothing. He is also a computer guru and loves to help others out. He likes girls but he is kind of awkward so he keeps his feelings to himself until he meets Jazz. There is something about her that brings all those protective feelings to the forefront and he will do whatever it takes to be with her and love her and protect her.
This is truly an amazing story for all to read and I need book three like ASAP June is to far away!
Book #3 - Learning to Forgive - Coming June 2014
“I’ve learned a lot this past year, but there are two things I’ll never forget: one, People aren’t what they seem, and two, I fucking hate liars.” –Blaire
Blaire Morgan was a quiet, grief stricken girl when she left Mobile, Alabama, a year ago after her brother’s unexpected death.
She returns a year later with fresh wounds from another betrayal, and she’s not the same person.
A woman letting her tortured past rule her life, her “take no shit” attitude is catching the attention of everyone that crosses her path, including the bad boy front man of Lyrical Obsessions—the new band that plays at Jay Jay’s.
When she learns he has something she wants, she plans on doing whatever it takes to get it.
What is a demon?
An evil spirit possessing a person, acting as a tormentor in Hell? Lyric “The Demon”
Devereux is that tormentor and Hell is any place he sees fit, either in the fighting ring or on the streets.
He killed his first person at seventeen years old, and that list has grown over the years—as well as his list of enemies—but his biggest enemy is himself and he doesn’t know how to win that battle.
When Blaire comes into town like wildfire and turns heads, Lyric’s temper emerges—uninvited and unexpected.
His plan to stay at a distance for her safety, and his sanity, changes when she continuously shows up with her defiance and seductive pull.
He now has no choice but to face his past that could possibly destroy the both of them.
Tempers will detonate.
Lust will consume.
Truth will destroy.
But will love forgive?
R.D. Cole is a lively person with a determination to make it in life.
Once her mind gets set on an idea she pursues it with passion.
As long as she has God and her family she feels she can conquer everyday.
Besides reading and writing she loves to sing, dance, and go mudding on her Souped-up Can Am.
Her hubby is 9 years younger but he seems more mature than her at times and they level one another out.
She has a beautiful daughter named Bethani who is a miracle and a fighter.
She’s the only known living survivor of Matthew Woods Syndrome and when no one thought she’d live R.D. said “yes she will.”
R.D. takes nothing for granted when it comes to life.
“Everything can be ripped from your fingers before they can grasp it.
So if you want something in life, do it. Go for it.
”That same mindset has helped R.D. write small pieces of her life mixed in to fictional settings and characters that will capture your heart.“Read on. Dream on. Write on.” –R.D.
