I believe in love at first sight... because I am a mother. A mother’s love knows no laws, no boundaries, and no remorse for anyone who interferes with the life of a child.
I have lived a complete lie, holding on to a secret that could now cost me my daughter. I can’t lose Maddie. I couldn’t breathe without Maddie. Maddie is my life.
The saying about dying for your child is the absolute truth. The other things you would do are comparable to that of death. I know, I did those things. I did unthinkable things, all for Maddie. I continued the lie, the secrets with the one man who had no right, whom I despised and wanted dead.
I had no choice. I did it all for her... for my Maddie.

5 of 5 stars all day long!
Jettie Woodruff is my new favorite author. ALL FOR MADDIE WAS PHENOMENAL!
I have read 3 books now by Jettie and all 3 have been amazing and amazingly different. Her books are dark, but not in (my) traditional sense of the word. They can almost be classified as books with ethical or moral dilemmas and just when you think the answer to the question: what should she do? Is a simple one, something else happens that slaps u in the face and makes u realize there's waaaaay more to the story and there's no possibility of coming up with a solution unless u are living it (God forbid).
Basic story: Whitley is raped by a boy at a party. She gets preggo. Tells no one she was raped. Said boy comes back into her life and they battle for custody of their little girl, Maddie.
Sounds simple, right? No so much! This story left me all kinds of fucked up. I was screaming at the kindle. I was screaming at the characters. Screaming FOR the characters. I loathe Alex the rapist. I love Alex the father. I loathe Alex the conniver. I love Alex the lover. GAH! What a roller coaster.
I challenge anyone to read ALL FOR MADDIE and walk away without feeling conflicted. I honestly don't think it's possible.
Jettie is a masterful storyteller. She weaves a truly wicked story. Her characters are perfectly crafted - set up with the intention of forcing the reader to constantly vacillate between loving and hating and wanting to knock the fuck out of them.
If you love stories that stay with you long after you have read the final page, then you must check out author, Jettie Woodruff’s work. Her books are emotional, exciting and they always leave me feeling conflicted. I love them and I hope you will too!
(Love this cover)

By midnight the party had come to an end. I was normally one of the first to leave. I wasn’t leaving without Jaron. Naomi was the first to take off. I was glad that she had to get up and work the dining room. The few people that were left were guests that I didn’t know, nor did I care about. I moved between Jaron’s legs, sitting on the tailgate of his truck. He looked at me with a peculiar grin.
“What are you doing, you little conniver?” he asked.
“What does it look like I’m doing?”
“What’s the matter? Rich guy not so good in bed?”
I wasn’t talking about that with him. I had no clue how he was in bed. “You know how I get when I’m drunk.”
“I don’t get it.”
“If you’re so in love with this guy, why are you trying to get me in bed?”
“I don’t have to try to get you in bed. You just follow me when you think you might have a chance at getting me in bed,” I reminded him.
“I’m not following you. You have a boyfriend that you live with now. You’re chasing me, why Whitley?”
I got close to his ear and kissed just in front. “Because I am horny, and I know what you can do to me. Come home with me,” I whispered.
“And what would your boyfriend think about me moving in on his territory?”
I wanted to scream to the top of my lungs and tell the whole world that he wasn’t my fucking boyfriend.
“He’s not going to know, come on,” I coaxed, pulling his hand.
Jaron got behind the wheel of my golf cart and drove us to my house. I couldn’t wait. I was overly frustrated and excited. I needed this. I needed him to feed my craving before I went back to Alex’s.
I was completely naked before we ever made it to my bed. Jaron didn’t waste any time either. He was slamming into me, sending my eyes to the back of my head in seconds. Son of a bitch he felt amazing.
“What?” I asked when he stopped.
“Did you hear that?”
“I heard a car door.”
“No you didn’t, go down on me,” I beckoned, pushing his shoulders down.
I moaned when I felt him slide all the way out of me and move down.
I moaned even louder when I felt his tongue slide through my slit and then focus on my throbbing clit. I was going to last 2.7 seconds. Jesus God, he was incredible, or his tongue was anyway. Jaron aggressively paid close attention to my swollen nub, I was right there, right at the brink of an amazing orgasm when I called out and jumped when the overhead light was shining in my eyes above the bed.
Jaron jumped up, grabbed his jeans, and covered himself. Closing my legs, I grabbed the comforter, covering my naked body. I couldn’t speak. I was mortified. Alex had just walked in to Jaron eating me out. Not only that, I was in the middle of an orgasm that was halted thanks to him.
“Hey man, I don’t want any trouble,” Jaron said, holding up one hand still covering himself with his clothes.
“You always take little girls to bed?” Alex calmly asked. I knew he was speaking of the age difference.
Little girls?! Really?
“Um, would you turn that down?” Jaron asked, turning to me as I sat frozen in time, watching the spectacle play out in front of me.
“Get out,” Alex demanded in a composed voice. I could tell that he was pissed, but his voice didn’t show it.
Jaron scurried past him and right out the door, sliding into his jeans as he hopped out. Alex just stood there staring as I sat stunned, not knowing what to say.
