I’ll admit I chose to host this series after I saw the yellow cover. That’s right, I haven’t even read the title, let alone what the book was about, but that cover… I had to have it here. It’s so fun, and happy, and of course, when I did read the synopsis I realized this book, and the first one, were going to be a little more interesting than just happy and fun. I was right.
The series is SAPD SWAT Series by Nikki Mays, Romantic Suspense, Comedy.
Addicted to You ~ SAPD SWAT Series Book 2
Michelle is my addiction. She’s sweetness and light wrapped up in a delicious package. Almost as delicious as the confections she makes. Until now, I’ve kept my distance to make sure my darkness doesn’t taint her. She’s better than a killer who sits behind a scope.
I watch her from afar. Getting dragged under her spell a little further with every sweet smile and mischievous grin. I know I’ll cave one day, give into the craving to be near her. Being in her presence is a feeling like no other, one I can’t seem to resist.
Unfortunately, I’m not the only one living under her influence. While I was watching her, someone else was watching too. But she belongs with me, no matter what anyone else wants.
Now I need to make sure she gives me my next fix of her, even if she’s too stubborn to admit she wants to. She’s my addiction, cure and redemption all rolled into one. Her soul calls out to my own. I’ll make sure she’s as addicted to me as I am to her. She’ll crave me – if it’s the last thing I do.
Surrender to You ~ SAPD SWAT Series Book 1
Mellie has been hypnotized by a pair of gorgeous green eyes, attached to a very yummy package for months now. Unfortunately for her, her brain goes on hiatus anytime Morris Jackson is around. Looking like a bobble head whenever he asks her anything isn’t the best way to go about getting a man like him interested. Not like ruggedly handsome men go for quirky, accident prone introverts like her. Plus, even if she did have a snowballs chance in hell with him, him being her brothers SWAT teammate doesn’t bode well for her. A girl can dream though!
Those blue eyes sucker punched him the minute he looked into them. It felt like the ground had literally gone out from under him. Mellie is everything that he could ever want and everything that he shouldn’t have. Even if he didn’t know that she’s too good for a guy like him, her brother would never be okay with it. He is over protective and proud of it. But at some point you have to say screw the consequences and go after what you know is meant to be yours.
Too bad someone wasn’t happy for them when the found their way to one another. Someone will make sure they don’t stay together by any means necessary. They’ll even kill to get what they want.

Hi Nikki, and thank you for being here!
Do you have a favorite movie?
Halloween. My dad and I have always loved it. He would even wake me up when it was on TV when I was little. You know, before DVR’s when dinosaurs still roamed the earth.
Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?
Possibly a secret WIP that I’m not sure that I’ll even publish. It’s completely different from my others and more angsty.
As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?
A sloth 100%, mainly because they like naps and so do I. Plus, they are super cute!
What inspired you to write this book?
I’m not really sure. This series was just kind of a weird idea of mine and then the characters just wouldn’t shut up, so I decided to write it.
What can we expect from you in the future?
There will be four other books in this series. After that, my secret WIP, which I’ll hopefully get the guts to press publish on.
Do you have any “side stories” about the characters?
No, since they are all getting their own book. But I do think that readers will enjoy getting to see into all of their lives.
Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in Addicted to You?
Michelle and Damon were a lot of fun to write. Originally, Michelle was going to be a lot sweeter but she just kept coming at me with a ton of sass. I hate when a female is a complete doormat, so that probably plays a big roll into my heroines. Damon is growly but very sweet when it comes to Michelle. He also has a bad habit of stalking her a bit.
How did you come up with the concept and characters for the book?
I just thought about people that I would actually want to hang out with. I would also love to own a bakery and who doesn’t love a hot man in uniform?
Where did you come up with the names in the story?
It’s kind of funny. I was pregnant with my third when I started writing the first book. We didn’t know the sex yet, so I was going through websites with baby names. A few names stuck out at me, that my husband completely vetoed. They ended up as my characters. I was determined to have those names one way or another.
What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
Finishing it….seriously. It’s a process that makes you want to beat your head against the wall and question why you decided to start this in the first place. But once you type “THE END”, there is no better feeling of accomplishment.
