Beware-- mushy post ahead...

I can't help it... I have to say that I'm so excited to be hearing from readers about Just the Way I Like It.  Of course, I always love to hear from readers.  That's just a fact.  But I'm especially thrilled to be hearing from readers about this book because, well, you readers are the whole reason I wrote that short story.

You're also the reason I wrote Just For Fun and Just A Kiss.  I wanted to write them, of course.  But Dooley and Kevin were a challenge.  I just wasn't sure who their perfect women would be.  So, it took awhile.  And I'm not sure I would have done it if I hadn't been getting e-mails from readers asking about them for the past two years.  That you all loved those guys as much as I did really mattered.

When I started writing Just For Fun the idea for a short story came to me.  I thought it would be fun (no pun intended :)) to catch up with everyone before jumping into Dooley's book.  A lot had happened to them all since Just My Type had ended.  So, I wrote it.  And ran it past a few people who liked it.  So all was good.

Then it was release day.  And honestly, I panicked a little bit.  What if people didn't like it?  What if it wasn't interesting?  What if it wasn't *enough*? 

But now I've heard from a few readers and their comments mean a lot.

So, thank you to all of you!  Thank you for reading the Bradfords, thank you for loving them,  and
thank you for telling me!  This is what it's all about.
