Badass: The Prequel Badass Book 1: Collision Course Badass Book 2: Destinies Collide Badass Book 3: Hidden Danger Badass Book 4: Shattered Badass Book 5: Redemption
Leslie is a California native but recently moved to Arizona after a stint in Arkansas. She enjoys travel and being with friends.
She is an avid reader of many genres, but prefers romances with travel or thriller themes. She loves writing about strong women and strong men because the world needs both!
Sharing ones thoughts on paper is an intimate experience, and should not be taken lightly. Some days I fear this process, as my mind can be a scary place to dwell. Other days I realize I’m not alone in this journey, and although the very action of expelling ones deepest thoughts onto paper is intensely personal, it is deeply healing. Funny how that works.
I will continue to write as Elle Dawson, and be a mom, sister, daughter and friend in my real life. I'll enjoy the beauty of Tennessee and read books that take me away or speed up my heart. When I'm not writing them.

Some things in our lives we don’t put much thought into because we either think they don’t hold much importance, or maybe we just don’t want to put in the effort to find out just how wrong our little worlds are.
My name is Sadie, and this is how I have survived all eighteen years of my life. I have ignored the things that I shouldn’t have, and didn’t ask the questions I should have. I am a Norm. Just an average Joe, living in a world obsessed with genetic enhancements.
He... he is everything. Gorgeous, smart, and a Norm as well. He is also my new science teacher. And when he came into our small little town… hell came with him.
I published my first book, From Lies to Promises in 2014. Since then I can't stop the stories from coming. Stories from all different types of genres, New Adult, Young Adult, Sci-Fi, and Fantasy.
I have an obsession with anything people consider odd and I can never get enough knowledge. I have an Associates degree in Business Management and I work full time as an account specialist.
When I'm not working or writing I am busy being a wife to the best husband of the freaking universe and mother to 3 majorly awesome kids! Reading, Xbox, cooking and WINE just barely scrape the surface of my favorite things. Everyone who knows me will say I am a nerd... and I would agree. Want to know a secret? I am a super hero. True story!

I felt I should cry, but I just couldn’t. I was too angry…with him, with her, with everyone who liked the status, with Anthony and how he had changed my world. I couldn’t even see straight for a few minutes. When my vision cleared, I noticed a few messages in my inbox. The newest one was from him, apologizing for the public message and saying he never thought our common friends would be that stupid. It was so his style, minimizing what had happened and trying to find new targets for me to blame. There were other messages from some of the people who had liked their new relationship status saying they did not realize what they were doing at first, then they could not unlike it without hurting them. Bullshit. They were all assholes. The two of them for publicly posting the update. My so-called friends for not thinking carefully about it. Me for having believed whatever he had said in the car, even if hope had been buried somewhere deep down.
I took my car keys from the counter. The key card from his building was still there. He had made that especially for me a few weeks before the conversation in the car. He said it was over with her and had given it to me one morning, after a passionate night together, telling me he expected me to come over and spend the night a lot more often. It had meant the world to me and he had never asked me to give it back. I removed it from its ring and broke the plastic bar with my bare hands. I did not think I actually had the strength, but I did and it cut my hand a little. I kept looking at my blood as it dripped on the counter and hoped the pain I could no longer cry out would pour through that fresh wound.
That was when Louis walked in with a big, toothy grin on his face. “Hey, I am back and I bring delicious treats,” he beamed. He noticed my hand and the look on my face, and quickly dropped everything next to my computer.
“What’s wrong?” he asked, worry in his voice.
I opened my mouth to say something, but I just couldn’t.
“Alexa, was Anthony here? You have to tell me!” He grabbed my shoulders and shook me a little. I pushed him away and walked to the other side of the counter to lean against it. He came closer and took my hand.
“You cut yourself.” It was not a question. He could tell what kind of wound it was.
I really wanted to say it was nothing. Instead, I put my other hand around his neck, pulled him close, and kissed him. I expected nothing, in all honesty, other than cold rejection. I wasn’t really thinking, just acting on an impulse. But, for some reason, he kissed me back. When our tongues met, my knees gave out so I grabbed his shoulders with both my hands, bloodying his shirt.
He caught me in his arms and pulled me close, pressing me tightly against him. I was used to powerful reactions to kisses, but this was still off the charts. Vampire thing, I told myself. First line of baseborns. The one thought that was clear in my head was that I did not want that kiss to ever end. All the anger, hurt, and pain were gone, and this new situation with Louis seemed so raw, so pure. I felt his hand gliding down my thigh, then his fingers on the back of my knee. He hardly needed to do something for me to respond as he wanted me to so I put my leg around his hip. He never stopped kissing me, but somehow put my hands around his neck, took me in his arms and sat me on the kitchen counter, pushing his body closer to me.
I felt dizzy and mesmerized, and all I wanted was to keep feeling him. His tongue, his lips, his hands, his entire body. The moment I just left all thought behind and let my instinct take over, he brutally moved away.
“What the hell are you doing?!” he yelled, pacing around the kitchen and rubbing his forehead.
It took me a little while to try and gather my thoughts. But before I could say anything, a sudden rage got the better of me. What the hell did he mean by asking me what I had done? Wasn’t he doing it with me?
“Holding a vampire down and forcing my tongue down his throat!” I heard myself yelling back. “Oh, wait, that’s impossible!”
I could see the anger oozing through all his pores. His eyes were glassy and fear-inducing, his fangs were out and his body language spoke of a predator ready to jump on their pray. He started to say something, but I was faster. “Whatever it is, keep it to yourself, asshole!”
I jumped from the counter, pushed him away, and stormed out of the kitchen. I ran up the stairs, grabbed my gym bag, then got out of the house as fast as I could. I threw my bag in the car and started driving, fast and reckless, as if my life depended on getting to that gym. I got there in no time, changed in an instant, and started running on the treadmill. When it did not tire me enough, I moved to the elliptical bike and finally decided throwing punches at a big round bag filled with sand was way more refreshing.
