J.B. Leslie, a recent divorcee and devoted mother, has completed her new book “Afloat”: a hysterical, sexy, and emotional story of a woman’s journey to finding true love.

According to Leslie, “As goes for most moms, when (I’m) not writing romance novels, (my) days are busy at basketball tournaments and gymnastics meets. Besides being a round-the-clock mother, (I) work full-time in administration for a local hospital. Like Tatum, (I) love spending time with loved ones on the lake and even used (my) mother’s favorite saying “Afloat” as the title to (my) novel. After getting swept up in the “Fifty Shades” phenomenon, (I) read countless books of this genre by many different authors. After (I) felt (I) had heard just about every sexy, love story that had been written, (I) did what only felt natural—(I) wrote one (myself). Being single for the first time in (my) adult life, (I have) seen firsthand the trials and tribulations of dating in this day and age. (My) experiences have seasoned (my) novel with a great sense of humor, charm, and a countless amount of sex appeal. (I) love (my) family, friends, wine, and romance novels, in that order.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, J.B. Leslie’s scintillating tale centers around Tatum Beckett; a 27-year-old woman who is confident, smart, sexy and funnier than hell. She swears like a sailor, loves spending her days on the water and is about as sarcastic as they come. When Tatum meets 32-year-old successful businessman and restaurateur Roman Sharp at her work holiday party, the immediate attraction they have for each other leaves them both dreaming of release.

In “Afloat,” told from Tatum’s point of view, she and Roman are both scarred from tragedies and betrayals in their past. With an abundance of trust issues between the two of them and neither wanting to relinquish control, all odds are against the pair. What is sure to be another failed relationship turns out to be the only thing that can save them both from themselves. This fictional romance is based in present day Chicago, IL and Madison, WI and follows Tatum and Roman as they meet, have amazing sex, share their pasts and ultimately fall in love. Unfortunately, sometimes love just isn’t enough…or is it?

Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase “Afloat” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Kobo, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
