About Me

Writer. Reader. Mom. Wife. Master of awkward Sarcasm. 

Jay McLean is a full-time reader, writer of New Adult and Young Adult romance, and skilled procrastinator. When she’s not doing any of those things, she can be found running after her three boys, investing way too much time on True Crime Documentaries and binge-watching reality TV.

She writes what she loves to read, which are books that can make her laugh, make her hurt and make her feel.


Jay lives in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, in her dream home where music is loud and laughter is louder.

Pieces of You follows Holden (Mia’s best friend from Leo, A Preston Brothers Novel #3) and Jameson, both high school seniors who struggle with very real-life issues. While Holden’s greatest fear in life is growing up, Jamie’s fears are deep-rooted in her past—a past she’s fighting to overcome.


“I hold on to pieces of her.

Segments of the life she lived, fragments of a girl I’d fallen in love with.

She flew in like a hurricane, forcing me to drown in her depths while shaking my foundation and tearing down my walls. And then came the aftermath: the never-ending storm—like constant cracks of thunder and blasts of lightning that paved a path toward our destruction.

She was frustratingly defeating,

and devastatingly desolate.

Completely unforgiving.

And beautiful.

God, was she beautiful.

Even when shattered to pieces.”
