So, let me start off by introducing Jillian!  

Again, I am able to start on a personal note, I was fortunate enough to also meet Jillian in Chicago and spend a little time with her when I went to TFEIC Author Meet and Greet!  Jillian is one class, sweet and caring lady!  If you saw my post on December 31, 2012 – titled “THANK YOU Jillian Dodd for all that you do!”, you may get the bigger picture of what an AMAZING person Jillian is and how her fellow Authors and bloggers feel about her as they declared the day “Jillian Dodd Day” for all her hard work she puts into helping them ALL.  On my Jillian Author Page – I have links to some of the great personalized thank you posts that I saw all over that day!  Check them out!

Jillian is another one of those authors that really interacts with her readers – which is also what makes her so cherished by many.  So, make sure you go visit her on her website and facebook page, say “hello” and see for yourself. 

In addition, Jillian has started Bandit Publishing Company.  I wish her great success with it!


ABOUT JILLIAN:  (text taken directly from Jillian’s website).

Jillian Dodd grew up on a farm in Nebraska, where she developed a love for Midwestern boys and Nebraska football. She has drank from a keg in a cornfield, attended the University of Nebraska, got to pass her candle, and did have a boy ask her to marry him in a bar. She met her own prince in college, and they have two amazing children, a Maltese named Sugar Bear, and two Labrador puppies named Camber Lacy and Cali Lucy.

She is the author of the That Boy Trilogy and The Keatyn Chronicles Series.


Gossip girl meets Hollywood in this new series by That Boy author, Jillian Dodd.

Keatyn has everything she ever dreamed of. Her life is following the script she wrote for the perfect high school experience. She’s popular, goes to the best parties, dates the hottest guy, and sits at the most coveted lunch table.     She’s just not sure she wants it anymore.   Because really, things aren’t all that perfect. Her best friend is threatening to tell everyone her perfect relationship is a scam.  Her perfect boyfriend gets drunk at every party they go to.  It’s exhausting always trying to look and act perfect. And deep down, she isn’t sure if she has any true friends.    To add to the drama, her movie star mom’s long-time fan has turned stalker. An older man is flirting with her and telling her they should make a movie together. And she’s crushing on an adorable surfer. Dating a guy like him would mean committing social suicide.   So she writes a new script. One where all the pieces of her life will come together in perfect harmony.  But little does she know, there’s someone who will do anything to make sure that doesn’t happen.



I’ve always written scripts for my perfect life. But no way could I have ever scripted this. My life is so far from perfect, it’s not even funny. All because of a stalker.

I’m at a boarding school where I have to lie about who I am. I can’t see my family. I’m tutoring a Hottie God that tortures me with his smile. The most popular girl already hates me. But there’s this boy. This hot, sweet, sexy boy. So I’m going to stop trying to script my life and just live it. Because who knows how long I have left.




That Boy is a contemporary romance about falling in love with the boys next door.

You know, being friends with two cute boys does have its benefits.  There’s Danny. Danny is a golden boy in every way. He has dreamy blue eyes and blonde hair that always looks perfect, even when it’s windblown or been stuck under a football helmet. He’s the boy every girl crushes on. The boy I get into trouble with, the boy I fight with, the hot quarterback no girl can resist, not even me. Being with Danny is like being on an adventure. He has a bright, contagious smile and abs to die for. He’s pretty much irresistible. Equally crush worthy is Phillip. Adorable, sweet Phillip, who I have known since birth.  Phillip has dark hair, a perfect smile, brown eyes, and the sexiest voice I have ever heard. He’s the boy I talk to every night before I go to sleep. The boy who rescues me, the boy who can read my mind, the boy who is always there for me, the boy who tries to keep me out of trouble, the boy who irritatingly keeps getting hotter, and whose strong arms always seem to find their way around me.  And when he gives me that grin, I can never say no. One boy will give me my very first kiss. One boy will teach me to make out. One boy will take me to prom. And finally, one boy will ask me to marry him. They will both be my best friends. But only one of them will be the boy I fall in love with. Only one of them is That Boy.



The gorgeous engagement ring on my finger mimics my happiness. I feel so sparkly, glittery, and full of promise, because I absolutely know he’s that boy. The boy I want to marry. My prince. My happily ever after.

But then our pastor starts asking lots of questions. His parents say I haven’t dealt with my past.  I have horrible wedding disaster dreams. I can’t find the perfect dress. I have to manipulate him to get my way. An old boyfriend asks me to run away with him. My best friend says I’m going to ruin everything. And forever starts to sound like a really long time. Which totally freaks me out and makes me question everything I know. Should best friends get married?  Will my past affect our relationship? Are my horrible dreams a warning? Will I ever find a dress? Could his sexiness be clouding my judgment? Am I going to ruin everything? Or is it just a case of cold feet? And then I have to decide. Am I willing to give up on true love forever, or am I going to listen to my heart and marry him?

    I have read all of Jillian’s books. It is definitely hard to decide which book is my favorite…. I think Stalk Me is my favorite because it was the first book of Jillian’s that I read and it just sucked me in. I was hooked for life after that. But, also That Boy was my favorite because I have never been a fan of the “love triangle” type stories, but I fell in love with JJ, Danny and Phillip and now I am dying to know what happens in That Baby. SO, I guess it’s a tie.

    My favorite books of hers are the That Boy series. I can’t get enough of them. They’re so warm and fuzzy; they’ve gotta be in the running for my favorite books of all time. I don’t know if I’ve ever read a series that I enjoyed as much as this one. I’m excited to read the her other books, she’s a terrific writer.
