I've been asked those two questions a lot over the past couple weeks.
ANSWER:After going back and correcting timeline and story continuity issues that were written into the books accidentally when I worked on devastate Me while sick (and after popping it in out of order to get it to people quicker)... I had to change a couple things and I added one book to the mix (plus a special edition). Below is the new order of release, though dates are not yet available for some, I can tell you they will all be coming relatively quickly.
BOOK 2.5 - Surprise Me (Releases March 10-11, 2023)Tripp, June, and Kim (young Tripp when he prospected)
BOOK 3 - Baby Me (coming soon)Tripp, June, and Davina (Prez during current time period)
BOOK 4 - Patch Me (coming soon)Scout and Kip
BOOK 5 - Share Me (coming soon)Mitzi, Skully, and Trench
*NOTE: Seeing three names does not mean that all three of those people get a happily ever after. It just means that there were multiple relationships during the course of their story in some cases. (a third party played an important part).
**ALSO OF NOTE - SURPRISE ME - was meant to be Trip's extended prologue for Baby Me. I originally wanted to write a novella because a prologue didn't do enough justice to Kim's story and I felt she deserved her happy ending.She gets one in Surprise Me. While this book became a full-length novel, it remains listed as book 2.5 because it was only meant to enhance your experience with book three and not the series overall. Surprise Me is a look into Tripp's past (outside of the timeline for the other books). I absolutely loved writing Kim's story, though, so I hope everyone takes the time to read it.
