My newest novel, Secession, is out!

SECESSION

Written by Dr. John Mayer and Koji Steven Sakai

After a series of presidential administrations pummeled the powers of the individual states, the US is left angry and severely divided. A shocking act of violence against the federal government is the kindling that ignites a fire that takes the rage against Washington to the point of no return. Although fiction, the story details the facts that can make this thriller a reality. Several states stand on the brink of Secession. This story tells you how it unfolds. A typical California family is torn apart by the events around them. The mom, Trisha, involuntarily becomes the figurehead of the movement to secede, putting herself and her family in grave danger as the armed aggression escalates to the point of all out civil war. This exciting tale is stocked with action and drawn from the events exploding in the news every day.

From COSMO: Sex & Relationships The Sexiest Movies and TV Shows on Amazon Prime Right Now, for Your Viewing Pleasure

the people i’ve slept with

When Angela (Anna Cheung) realizes she’s pregnant, she scrambles to figure out who the father is since she had a lot of sex—with multiple people—in the course of the month. The People I’ve Slept With is sort of like a sexier Definitely Maybe with a little bit more public sex.

The Hottest Part:

While there’s a lot of sex in this movie, it’s not as graphic as some of the other offerings. Still, the plot is cute, and Cheung channeling her inner dominatrix for a scene will forever live rent-free in my mind.
