The Series that Wasn't Meant to be a Series

When I started the book We're All Animals back in 2016, I really hadn't anticipated that it would turn into the series it has become. Now with the recent release of the third book (and having started the fourth), I recognize that maybe it is time to let people know about the series and the best order to read these books. So, here we go... 

It started with a broken heart and it took no time for Chase Jacobs' world to spin out of control. An unwanted pregnancy allows his mother and obsessive future bride to manipulate and control his life, turning him bitter and resentful. His destiny becomes a dark road to misery and whenever he tries to take the wheel, temptation only leads him further astray.

When a provocative and sinister side of life introduces itself, Chase discovers there's an animal lurking inside each of us; a powerful creature that wants to take over. But will he let it win?

The second book in the series is Always be a Wolf, published in April 2017. 




In the gripping sequel to We're All Animals, Chase Jacobs moves to Toronto with his Colombian bosses, Diego and Jolene Silva, where they expand their elite sex party business. The underground's best-kept secret is going legit, but just as Chase starts a brand new life, tragedy strikes.
The heartbreaking lessons ahead of him are the most difficult he's ever had to face, and Chase must rely on his new family to help him through. But will his blind faith in Diego and Jolene prove to be a mistake, and has he underestimated just how far they are willing to go to prove their loyalty?
He learns there are times when passion and anger cause you to throw away the rule book even in the face of deadly consequences. He learns that words have a great deal of power but not as much power as silence. But most of all, Chase learns that in a world full of sheep, one should always be a wolf.

The third book in this series was published in the fall of 2017 and is called The Devil is Smooth like Honey



El narco. A monster. Un diablo. Jorge Hernandez had been called many things, and it always made him laugh. If there was one word that could be used to describe him, it would be untouchable. Corrupt politicians combined with his charming disposition had contributed to Jorge’s success, but it was often the underlying threats behind his handsome smile that sealed the deal. He was unstoppable.

In Paige Noël, he had met his match. She was a woman as dangerous and sadistic as she was soft and gentle. The last thing he expected was to propose after an explosive first meeting, but the intense fire between them was as addictive as the thrill of violence and power.

When some of his personal enemies turn up dead, Jorge shuffles his daughter into a Canadian school, deciding that things are getting a little too hot in Mexico; but does life ever slow down in this dark underground world?

The devil is smooth like honey, but is heaven ever far away?

Songs that inspired We're All Animals by Mima



We’re all animals; led by our desires, ready to fight in the light of fear yet with a soul that leads us on a path to wherever we must go.


It started with a broken heart and it took no time for Chase Jacob’s world to spin out of control. An unwanted pregnancy allows his mother and obsessive future bride to manipulate and control his life, turning him bitter and resentful. His destiny becomes a dark road to misery and whenever he tries to take the wheel, temptation only leads him further astray.
When a provocative and sinister side of life introduces itself, Chase discovers there’s an animal lurking inside each of us; a powerful creature that wants to take over. But will he let it win?


With every book I write, there's a soundtrack that has inspired me through the writing process. It's never the fact that I look for the music that will work for me, but more the other way around. A perfect example would be with my next book - We're All Animals - where the music seemed to follow me through each day, even when I wasn't writing and the biggest example of this is the first song on my list...

1. High Hopes - Pink Floyd

This is probably the one song that inspired me the most throughout the writing process. In fact, I found myself listening to this song all the time, almost obsessively for the months I was working on We're All Animals.




2. Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd



3. The Animal I Have Become - Three Days Grace




4. The Trouble - U2




5. Last Resort - Papa Roach




6. Pour Some Sugar On Me - Def Leppard
