One week until Truth or Darren releases!

The Games We Play series continues in one week! Truth Or Darren will continue the sweet and steamy romance series full of small-town humor and heart on August 11. If you haven’t yet tried the series, Book 1–Never Have I Evan–is on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited now! A free prequel to the series, Two Truths and a Lyle, is available free as part of the Your Book Boyfriend’s Boyfriend giveaway on Prolific Works.


Get started now so you’ll be ready for the bad boy with a heart of gold that is Darren, his ex-girlfriend’s brother, and the dare that reveals new truths to Darren and sets them on their enemies-to-lovers  journey!

The Book Blurb:

Truth or…whoa, that’s not how this dare works!

What happens when my big mouth writes a check it can’t cash while taunting my ex’s brother in a game of Truth or Dare? I end up with his tongue in my mouth. In my very straight, totally uninterested mouth.

While I don’t feel anything.

Nothing at all.

In fact, I barely noticed.

So, why can’t I stop thinking about it?

Truth or Darren features a troublemaker with good intentions, a guy who’s none too impressed with his sister’s ex, and an animosity that flares hotter than either of them could ever imagine–but which the townspeople of Granville, Nebraska, are all too happy to speculate about.



Excerpt from Truth or Darren, releasing August 11:

“Shut up,” he growled.

“You going to make me?” I challenged.

“If I have to,” he gritted out.

“I’m shaking in my boots, Dare.” I laughed a little, even though my heart skittered at the expression on his face. “What are you gonna do, punch me? Strangle me? Oh, I know, maybe you could kiss me again. I bet you’re dying for an excuse.”

Darren was silent, his face grim as I goaded him.

There was something magnetic about him, something that made me want to pull him closer even when he had murder in his eyes.

Which I would deserve. Because who the hell lusted after their sister’s ex? It was so, so wrong.
Maybe if Darren hit me, I’d let go of this attraction I shouldn’t have. Maybe if he hit me, I’d forget that hot-as-fuck kiss we’d shared before.

I almost wanted him to. It’d be a relief, in a way.

So I continued to goad him.

I batted my eyes. “I wouldn’t be opposed, you know. You were a good kisser. A little sloppy, maybe, but…”

Darren raised his hands to throat level. Ah, shit. This was it. I was going to die by strangulation because I couldn’t shut the hell up.

He curled his hands into fists. Okay, beaten to a pulp, then. Fuck. I squeezed my eyes shut, bracing for the pain. At least it’d make for a heck of a news story. Agatha might forgive me for fucking this all up if she got a crime-scene article instead.

The hit didn’t come.

After a few loaded seconds, I opened my eyes. “Uh, Darren, listen…”

Before I could articulate more than that, he struck.

With his mouth.

His mouth on mine. Kissing me. Again.

Order the full book on Amazon!



Readers of advance copies are saying:
“I absolutely LOVED this second book in the Games We Play Series. Readers get plenty of sweet and steamy times between Darren and Linc written with clever humor, snark, angst and a collection of very eccentric and memorable characters who populate the town. Highly recommend.”

“DJ Jamison left us with the ultimate tease at the end of “Never Have I Evan” and did not disappoint with “Truth or Darren“. I was hooked right from the start and was smart enough to wait until I had a day off to read this. I read it from start to finish in one day.”

With a click to one page, you can see a whole selection of that month’s new releases–both from your favorites and from new authors you might want to explore!

Series launch: New adult meets small-town charm! 

Series launch: New adult meets small-town charm! 

My newest series, Games We Play, has officially launched with the release of Never Have I Evan, the romance between a virginal tech geek and the more experienced but “straight” high school football coach. The book is full of cute social awkwardness, fun flirting lessons, sexy tutoring, and heartfelt love born of friendship and respect. 

The series is set in Granville, a small town in Nebraska, just down the road from Hayworth College, where two other series take place (Love Notes and Thrust Into Love). And, yes, there are cameos from characters in the other series. Simon and Parker of Matched By My Rival make an appearance, as does Linc Tate, a frat brother who’s present in most of the Thrust into Love stories.

Granville may not be totally unfamiliar to you, even though Never Have I Evan is technically Book 1 of the series. Two Truths and a Lyle, a free prequel novella available as part of the Your Book Boyfriend’s Boyfriend promotion on Prolific Works, was the first story set in the quirky town. 

In each book of Games We Play, a party game will help the love interests connect in some way. The series takes the college-aged characters and new adult themes of my Hayworth College series and sets them in a small town with colorful side characters, hilarious business names, close-knit friendships, and nosy grannies. It’s the best of both worlds–in my humble opinion! 

Never Have I Evan is available on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited. Two Truths and a Lyle is available only through Prolific Works for all of 2022

Who loves a Grinchy Santa?

There’s something about the grinch trope I love. Combine that with playing Santa and it’s “Christmas magic” on the page! Readers seem to agree after checking out my newest release, Sexted By Santa.

Amazon readers say:
“Hallmark couldn’t have created a better holiday story. Absolutely delightful, fun, and with enough sizzle to melt the most frozen of hearts! Truly magical!”

“I loved this story with its themes of found family, age gap romance, and a grumpy reluctant Christmas-loathing grinch who needs to let go of the past and embrace the joy being offered him — a great reminder to all, at Christmas or anytime.”

“This book made me smile, over and over again!”

Have you checked out this holiday read yet? Here’s the book blurb:

Christian Kringle: College professor, reluctant Santa, and…fake dating my neighbor?

I’m a grinch and proud of it–but this year, there’s no avoiding the Christmas cheer.

First, I get roped into playing Santa. Shudder. Then, while trying to dodge a setup with my boss’s brother, I somehow promise to attend a holiday party with my boyfriend–who doesn’t exist.

Next thing I know, my (soon-to-be former) best friend has set up a profile on a hookup app to find me a date. With the username of….wait for it…SantaWantsYourChimney.

Go ahead and laugh. He sure did, the traitor.

Before I can delete the profile, I match with an easygoing guy with amazing photos. His teasing about Santa kink makes me laugh, and blush, and feel things I haven’t since my divorce. For the first time in years, I look forward to dating.

Until we meet, and he turns out to be my neighbor. My very young, very off-limits neighbor who I’ve clashed with for years. Only now I know just how sexy, charming, and sweetly devoted to his daughter he is.

I should walk away, but I still need that fake boyfriend. The only problem? Jaxson’s so convincing I can’t tell where the pretense ends and real feelings begin.

Falling for him is easy. Loving his daughter? Effortless. Trusting that I can keep them is the hard part.

It’ll take the magic of love, family, and yes–even Christmas–to teach this old grinch new tricks.

Boyfriend Freeze is here!

Boyfriend Freeze, the third installment in the Love Notes college romance series, is bigger and better than ever as it comes to Amazon.

Ollie and Graham will have you laughing and swooning through snarky banter, dangerous flirting, and sweet love notes!

Grab it now on Amazon!

Yes, it’s gotten bigger!

After initially writing Ollie’s story for a Winter Wonderland promotion, I’ve expanded it by more than 20,000 words to add Graham’s POV, new scenes, and a steamy epilogue! The story is more developed and well-rounded with its new content.

Boyfriend Freeze follows Naughty and Nice in the Love Notes series. Ollie even appears briefly in Chapter One of that book, a hookup who’s bitter that Jonas wants to call it quits.

Ollie is an impulsive freshman who acts first and thinks later—until he crosses a line and realizes it’s time for a change.

And who better to help him move on, but the sweet guy with the worst fashion sense that Ollie’s ever met?

Dear Graham,

After crossing too many lines for my self-respect, I made a promise to myself: no hookups, no sexts, no dating. For sixty days.

But I didn’t count on meeting you.

Who knew a smart, cardigan-wearing geek would be such temptation? You’re all wrong for me, except you’re also kind of exactly right.

So how do I keep my promise not to seduce the cute librarian and still get the perfect guy?

Maybe you know, because I don’t…

Already yours,
Ollie

Tropes Teaser

Naughty or nice, I have a new release for you!

Naughty & Nice is a college romance with forbidden love and sweet holiday moments. Because why not?

It’s that time of year again, when an avalanche of holiday romance slides into the M/M genre–and how great is that? We could all use a little extra comfort in 2020, yes?

Naughty & Nice is my contribution to the holiday romance cheer, featuring Jonas of Secret Admirer and his former stepbrother, Quinn. Jonas comes off as a bit of player in Secret Admirer–but in this new romance you’ll see the depth of Jonas’s feelings for Quinn and his struggle with pining for someone he believes he can’t have.

A blizzard that snows him in at the family cabin with the guy he thought he’d never see again gives Jonas another shot at love with Quinn, but he’s afraid to trust it as more than a holiday fling.

As is usually par for the course, he has no idea how Quinn sees him: as gorgeous, smart, and confident. Quinn has had his struggles: from grief over the death of his father as a teen to dropping out of college and following the wrong guy across the country. Jonas looks like someone who has it all together, the golden boy with no problems.

I love pairing these two together and showing them how they can enrich and enhance one another’s lives! And of course, even though it’s a steamy college romance with a bit of fun stepbrother taboo, it’s a holiday story too. There are Christmas tree decorations, holiday movie binging, Christmas Eve traditions, and family gatherings to give you all the warmth you’ll need this year.

I hope you enjoy Jonas and Quinn as much as I do! I’ll leave it up to you to decide who’s naughty and who’s nice 😉

Enjoy the read–and I wish you all happy holidays in a highly unconventional season.

AVAILABLE ON AMAZON & KU

Why can’t I forget your kiss…

Dear Quinn,
Why must I have these feelings for you? You’re my ex-stepbrother, and nothing will change that truth, no matter how many letters I write.

I never expected to see you again–or to rescue you from the side of the road in a blizzard. I didn’t think you would ever like me, much less kiss me in a steaming hot tub on a snowy night. It seems we make better lovers than brothers, which is all kinds of naughty and nice while we’re snowed in together.

But can this new intimacy last when the skies clear and my family finally arrives for the holidays, or are we just two guys in a mountain cabin with a great view of everything we want but can’t have?
Hopelessly yours,
Jonas

Faking A Groom is finally here!

Faking A Groom, featuring Rory and Avery, is live on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited! I’m especially excited about this book because it’s been such a journey for me.

I originally planned for this book to come second in the Marital Bliss series. I tried to start it in June 2019, but I couldn’t get a handle on a story idea that fit with the character, Rory. I wrestled with it for a month or two before ultimately going on to write Wrangling A Groom instead. That book was no picnic, either, though I did love the final version.

I was suffering from a mix of burnout and analysis paralysis.

Surprise Groom was loved by readers, and I was over the moon. But that kind of success piles on the pressure. Could I repeat that performance? Were my new ideas just as original, plot-driven, and well-executed? The doubts plagued me until I froze up, barely able to write.

Eventually, I broke out of that with other projects. I wrote Nobody’s Groom, a sexy novella that was mostly just fun for me. I wrote Five Fake Dates and Secret Admirer, a couple fluffy, sweet reads.

Then I buckled in and finally worked out a plot and storyline for Faking A Groom. I’m really proud of how it turned out. I think it’s a book with a complex plot, genuine characters, and an emotional storyline. It’s a story about passion *and* compassion, about love and acceptance. It has a lot of interesting themes to explore: toxic masculinity, equality challenges, light lingerie kink/femme clothes desires, and coming out while in the spotlight. It’s a story about self-acceptance, as well as finding love, and how the two sometimes intertwine in the right circumstances.

Rory and Avery just might be my favorite couple yet. The way they work together, love together, and fight to be together makes them more than worthy of their HEA.

You can find the book on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited. Plans are under way to produce it in audio this winter.

Nobody's Groom by DJ jamison

The Marital Bliss novella you’ve been waiting on!

Nobody’s Groom, the long-awaited story about TJ and Colby, is here! Nobody’s Groom is a bonus story in the Marital Bliss series to provide an HEA for two characters who appeared on the Triple J Ranch in Wrangling a Groom. TJ and Colby weren’t intended for their own book, but they developed too much tension in Wrangling a Groom to ignore — and at 38,000 words, their story was just a little too long to be a bonus snippet.

Nobody’s Groom is a story of enemies to lovers, bisexual awakening, sexual exploration, and love in places you don’t expect to find it. Colby has to reassess his expectations for the future, and TJ has to find a way to feel worthy of love and happiness before these two can ride off into the sunset.

I hope you love them as much as I do!

You can find Nobody’s Groom on Amazon, also available in Kindle Unlimited, along with the rest of the series: Surprise Groom (book 1) and Wrangling a Groom (Book 2.) You might also enjoy Five Fake Dates, a novella set in the Marital Bliss universe (but without any ties to existing stories).

Five Fake Dates, MM novella by DJ Jamison

New book release: Adorable, heart-warming goodness!

With my newest book release, Five Fake Dates, I embrace the sweetness of two best friends falling in love. The book has been called “cute” and “adorable” and has been getting good comments from readers on social media.

It seems that my “cute” stories resonate with readers the most. I’ve written light, funny romance and sweet, cute romance, and even more serious, slightly angsty romance. Pretty much everything but dark romance. But it’s the cute stuff that really gets the most feedback. What do you think? What’s your favorite book by me, and which category would it fall into?

In Five Fake Dates, you meet West and Adam, two best friends who are also college roommates. You an expect:

  • Fake Dating Scheme
  • Bisexual awakening
  • Dates that go wrong
  • Kisses that go right!

You may have read Five Fake Dates in its original version, as I wrote it for a free giveaway. I have since expanded it to add more spiciness, a few new scenes, and a bonus epilogue with HEA. It’s now available on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited.
