Here's the first snippet from For The Love of Ash which comes out this winter! Maggie and Luke are the main characters.
Here is the blurb:
Maggie Larken is a reformed party girl. After her parent’s death, she’s left to raise Asher, her nine-year-old brother.
Luke Wilson has done everything his parents have ever asked of him. A new teacher, Luke constantly questions where is life is headed.
When Luke and Maggie meet, neither is in the market for a relationship. But sometimes life has other plans. Both navigate new waters as they try to decide where their priorities should lie, while also seizing what they want.
In this heartbreakingly real tale of love, Maggie and Luke discover what being a family truly means.
Here is the teaser, from Maggie's point of view. (The whole book is).
I was early to get to Western College. My new car was awesome and as I drove down route 15, I blasted the music and sang my heart out. I didn’t want to smoke in my new car, so I sat down on a bench outside of the college and lit up.
It was a bad habit of mine, but I hadn’t been able to kick it. It helped me cope. Asher sucked his thumb, I sucked on smoke. I couldn’t help it. But I refused to smoke in front of Asher, so I had turned into a closet smoker, only outside when he wasn’t around.
This was my first semester at the school. Luckily, it was a four year college, with the price of a community college, so when I transferred here, most of my credits switched over easily.
It was different than my last school. There wasn’t much concrete, most of the grounds covered in bright green grass, shaded by giant oak trees. The school was split on two sides of a one lane road.
East campus was smaller, housing mostly art classes. There was only one parking lot, surrounded by concrete circles of grass. The sidewalks were immaculate here, barely any traffic tainting them.
I was on West Campus, the larger of the two. It looked to be brand new, with a full side of glass windows. There was a cafeteria and gym on the bottom floor and computer labs on the top. The library was smack dab in the middle.

"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
