Blurb: Divorce lawyer Clayton Reynolds is a happy cynic who believes in hard work and one-night stands. He also believes that being an excellent lawyer means he never has to go home to the miserable trailer park where he grew up and that volunteering at a women’s shelter will buy off the conscience that occasionally plagues him. So when Nadine Graham comes in with a broken arm and a son she desperately wants to protect, Clayton can’t turn down their plea for help.
Taking the case means appealing to investigator “Just Call Me Kelly” for help. That wouldn’t be so bad if Kelly weren’t a hopeless romantic… and the hottest man Clayton’s ever met.
Kelly has always had a crush on the unobtainable Clayton Reynolds. He agrees to help, even though he has enough on his plate with the motherless baby his widowed brother left him to care for.
As Nadine’s case turns dangerous and the two seemingly opposite men are forced to work together, they discover they have a great deal in common—but solving the case and saving Nadine’s life might cost Kelly everything.

First of all, thank you so much for having me! I’m thrilled to be here with my stand-alone contemporary suspense Every Other Weekend. Every now and again an author (or at least THIS author) gets characters who drop fully formed and already opinionated into your brain. It happened with my Digging up Bones series, and again with Clayton and Kelly (and Baker, who was so much to write for that he has to get an honourable mention) in this book. Trust me, this was originally meant to be a much sillier book. There were hijinks planned, but Clayton almost immediately established he wasn’t into the ‘jinks.
Anyhow, I thought that since I loved these guys so much? You guys might like to learn a few important bits and pieces about them. Let’s kick it off with Wilde, by name and by nature.
Five Facts about Wilde
1: Sometimes it sucks to be in the middle. You aren’t the eldest, you aren’t the youngest. You’re just there with the rest of them in between. Your parents don’t expect you to be responsible like the eldest, but they don’t indulge you like the youngest either. To be honest, they don’t really seem to see you all that much at all sometimes. Until you screw up.
2: Wilde has always lived up to his name. He got a girl pregnant when he was fourteen and she was nineteen. For a Catholic his mom sure got that sorted out real quick. These days, though, his favourite vices can’t get pregnant: booze and the occasional harder high. He’s a cop, doesn’t mean he has to play by all the rules.
3: Sometimes he envies Kelly for being upfront about who he is and what he wants. Fuck if Wilde can even do that with himself.
4: He’s not the world’s best husband, you don’t have to tell him that. If she ever kicked him the kerb, he’d not blame her. As long as she’s willing to try though, he has to show willing right?
5: He is a good cop. Of all his brothers he’s probably the best, he’s made detective and has his eye on a homicide assignment. Some days he cares more than others that he’s probably going to fuck it up. Until then though, he likes catching bad guys.
TA Moore is a Northern Irish writer of romantic suspense, urban fantasy, and contemporary romance novels. A childhood in a rural, seaside town fostered in her a suspicious nature, a love of mystery, and a streak of black humour a mile wide. As her grandmother always said, ‘she’d laugh at a bad thing that one’, mind you, that was the pot calling the kettle black. TA Moore studied History, Irish mythology, English at University, mostly because she has always loved a good story. She has worked as a journalist, a finance manager, and in the arts sectors before she finally gave in to a lifelong desire to write.
Coffee, Doc Marten boots, and good friends are the essential things in life. Spiders, mayo, and heels are to be avoided.
