#NewRelease THE SCARS BETWEEN US by MK Schiller

TSBU RDB

This week has been a little complicated for me due many different reasons. I had this post scheduled for Monday 17, but Blogger skipped it so I'm posting today. 

I am so excited to (finally) celebrate the release of The Scars Between Us by MK Schiller!

  TheScarsBetweenUs-500

About The Scars Between Us

Emma Cooper is determined to fulfill her mother’s dying wish to scatter her ashes with Aiden Sheffield in Linx, Texas. Just one problem. Why Texas and who the hell is Aiden Sheffield? The only clue is a faded piece of her mother’s stationary. Emma imagines Aiden is a former love of her mother’s, but when she meets the beautiful, damaged stranger, she realizes her assumptions couldn’t be more wrong. He’s hot and young. And Emma is as confused as ever. Aiden Sheffield would rather go to hell than Linx. Who does Emma think she is disrupting his carefully built life? The last thing the Marine needs is to slice open the sealed wounds of his painful past. Yet, as he gets to know the lovely Emma, a woman who manages to smile even though she’s lost everything, he changes his mind. He will not let her go to hell alone. But neither is prepared for the devastating evil waiting for them at the end of the road. It might just destroy them.

¿Están listos para vivir "La noche más linda"?


¡Feliz lunes para todos! 

Quiero iniciar esta semana compartiendo con ustedes una de mis lecturas más recientes en español. Se trata de La noche más linda de la autora venezolana Lorena Fuentes, que participa en el Concurso Indie de Amazon 2017. 

¿Fanático(a) del romance? ¿Buscando una historia mágica y diferente que te haga suspirar? Este libro es para ti. Pero te advierto, debes mantener tu mente abierta y los pañuelos cerca.

Disponible en Amazon | Amazon ESP en formato Kindle y Tapa Blanda

Sobre el libro:

Huyendo del mito de que su país es la cuna de las mujeres más bellas, Alejandra llega a Milán para cambiar su vida, y en la ciudad de la moda se convierte, irónicamente, en una famosa modelo de talla grande. Sin embargo, aunque su nombre se cotizaba en sumas desorbitantes, ella no logra ser feliz.

Andrea es un empresario exitoso que está decidido a dejar atrás toda una vida de frivolidades y a llenar el vacío que lo ahoga.

Él representaba todo lo que Alejandra odia, pero también es lo que más desea. 

Ella es todo lo contrario a lo que Andrea acostumbra, pero, al mismo tiempo, lo único que necesita. 

La noche más linda de Milán sellará el destino de ambos y sus vidas cambiarán para siempre.

Juntos viajarán por el Infierno, el Purgatorio y el Cielo, mientras el amor será el guía para las almas atormentadas.

Lorena Fuentes nos trae una novela llena de romance y drama, en la cual se aprecia el poder sanador del amor y el valor del perdón.

Añade este título en Goodreads



Con una narración sencilla, intensa y tremendamente romántica, Lorena retrata una historia de amor poco convencional. 

Se nos ha convertido en costumbre encontrarnos con protagonistas femeninas con medidas perfectas, seguras de sí mismas, con personalidades retadoras, sensuales... genial, ¿no? Pues Alessandra no es así. Ella no es la chica flaca que los tipos se comen con la vista en la playa mientras corre en traje de baño. Ella es la amiga gorda, la cerda, la ballena, y pare usted de recitar calificativos para referirse a una persona de su talla. Otro dato curioso sobre Alessandra: Es venezolana. 

¿Ustedes saben lo que implica ser gordo(a) en Venezuela? Pues eso es como nacer con un cartel que diga "¿Necesita una víctima para sus chistes/insultos? Aquí la tiene".

Venezuela, por generaciones, ha rendido culto a la belleza y a la perfección. Su gente sigue concursos de belleza con el mismo entusiasmo que sigue encuentros deportivos de cualquier disciplina. Es parte de su cultura. Dicho esto, no resulta difícil entender que Alessandra, siendo una chica con sobrepeso, haya tenido una vida muy difícil en el país de las reinas y haya decidido emigrar para construirse una vida nueva en un lugar donde nadie la conociera.

Alessandra, por su pasado, desprecia todo lo que tenga que ver con el modelaje, los concursos de belleza y toda institución que promueva cánones de belleza que alteren la percepción que las mujeres tienen de sí mismas. Pero por ironías de la vida terminó haciendo carrera en ese mundo.

Es en ese ambiente donde conoce a Andrea Pacci, y desarrolla una fascinación con él. Un amor secreto que consume sus pensamientos y llena su espíritu, pero que sabe nunca podrá convertirse en algo más que una fantasía.

¿Saben qué? Ella se equivocaba al pensar eso...

Una noche bastará para cambiarlo todo. Una noche dará rienda suelta a la pasión y convertirá cada sueño que tuvieron en una realidad. Aunque esa realidad parezca tener una fecha de caducidad.


Yo me enamoré con esta novela de Lorena Fuentes. 

Sus personajes, con virtudes y defectos, nos recuerdan que lo que necesitamos aparece en los lugares y formas menos pensadas, y que por muy sencillo que resulte renunciar o rendirse, la respuesta correcta siempre será luchar. 

Disfruté muchísimo de esta historia, de las vívidas descripciones y los intensos sentimientos que guarda en sus páginas. Me enamoré de sus personajes, de su terquedad, de su ternura y de su humor. 

Si no se habían animado a leer esta novela, los invito a hacerlo. Pero como dije al principio de esta entrada, tengan sus pañuelos a la mano porque hay momentos intensos que te arrancarán lágrimas. El final de la historia tocó mi corazón profundamente.

Gracias Lorena por "la noche más linda", gracias por regalarme personajes como Andrea y por Alessandra, gracias por los mensajes ocultos en tu novela y por arriesgarte a darle una oportunidad a una pareja tan poco convencional. 

El mayor de los éxitos en el concurso ;)

#CoverReveal TWISTED TWOSOME by Meghan Quinn

Hi there! Let's start this week with some awesomeness!! Check out the amazing cover for TWISTED TWOSOME by Meghan Quinn!


TWISTED TWOSOME
NA Romantic Comedy

Add to Goodreads: http://bit.ly/2uarCWF


Racer McKay is a broody bastard.

From the moment I met him, he’s been rude, irritable, and unbearable. 

A contractor working to remodel my parents pool house for extra cash, he stomps around in those clunky construction boots with his tool belt wrapped around his narrow waist, and a chip on his shoulder.

Racer McKay is also infuriatingly . . . sexy as hell. I want to take that pencil tucked behind his ear, and draw lazy lines slowly up and down his body all the while wanting to strangle him at the same time.

We try to stay out of each other’s way . . . that is until I have no other option but to ask for his help.

But what I don’t realize is he needs me just as much as I need him. I have money he’s desperate for, and he holds the key to making my dreams come true.

Our pranks turn from sarcastic banter, to sexual tension and lust-filled glances. Bickering matches quickly morph into slow burn moments. We’re hot, we’re cold. We push and pull. I need him, I don’t want him. We’re on the verge of combusting with an agreement dangling dangerously between us. Neither one of us can afford to lose one another and yet, we’re finding it quite hard to decipher the line that rests between love and hate.

*Twisted Twosome is a stand alone romantic comedy.



About the Author:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if "It's Raining Men" starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing... enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

#NewRelease SIN WITH ME by Lacey Silks




Title: Sin With Me
Author: Lacey Silks
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: July 10



Lies are necessary, mistakes are fatal, and sins unforgivable.

Hes a priest.

I repeat the words daily in hope that they’ll erase the picture of a perfect man from my mind. I don’t want to look at him intimately, but I can’t stop. Could any woman stop? I’ve seen the way they ogle him and I’ve heard the whispers in town; the ones of committing the unforgivable sin with the new addition to our parish.

Living in Pace was supposed to be easy, and it was, until I began seeing Father Cameron as more than a clergyman. He was kind and quiet. He was that perfect distraction I needed to forget my past.
Now that my body wants him, the pull is even stronger. His presence overpowers the room, his scent lingers in my lungs for hours and his kind heart is slowly healing my pain.

I pray for a resolution to my feelings but it’s not helping. My mind is clouded and my past is catching up to me without my knowledge…

Wanting him is a constant, needing him feels nurturing and resisting him is impossible. After all, forbidden fruit tastes the sweetest, except when it’s poisoned…

#REVIEW @YaGirlGabriana by Gabriella Ana Castro de la Vega

Hi there everyone! I hope you're having a lovely day.

A few weeks ago I was contacted by someone who asked me to give a try to a new author. At the time I was packed with books to be read and personal stuff, but I said 'why the hell not?' and I acepted to read the book. 

I didn't knew the person who wrote, neither the author, but the title and the synopsis were pretty attractive to me. Why, maybe you're wondering. Well, that's because the story was about a latina girl having a bad time in the Romance department and giving a try to Online Dating services. Too close to home, some may say.

Today is available for free on Amazon, btw.
(check the link to verify)




Gabriana is a mostly traditional Latina working as an accountant in Miami, Florida. Overbearing mother ready for grand-babies? Check. Hails from too far south to be a Southern belle, more like a Taco Belle? Check. Stunning face and more junk in the trunk than a hoarder? Double Check. 

That irresistible Latina fire and spice? Nada. Zero. 

Recently introduced to the elusiveness of online dating and contemplating a new promotion that would require constant travel, Gabriana realizes that if everyone else in the world can seem to find love then maybe that’s exactly who she should be... everyone else.

* * *

I felt pretty connected with Gabriana being a latina girl myself. Her family is like mine, utterly catolic and playing matchmaker all the time. Sometimes is funny, sometimes isn't, but that's life. 

In some ways her job is similar to mine too. I feel passionate about it, but it's demanding and it left no time for romance. My mom doesn't apreciate this in the least, btw. The same way Gabriana's mom doesn't. I laught out loud when I read about the flying chancleta. It was frigging hilarious.

This short story wasn't funny, it was hilarious. It was full of sabor latino, pop culture references, friendship, family love and expectations about life, work and romance. In the few pages that it has, the author traps you and makes you an accomplice of the protagonist. Read Gabriana misadventures is like talking with your best friend. That's the vibe you have reading this book, and I loved that.

Gabriana's best friend suggest het to sign up in an online dating service after she received a promotion in her job that will have her traveling across the country. This was a providential chance to become a better Gabriana. A fake, but better version of herself. Who knows, maybe this alter ego helps her to find herself. 

The first try of Gabriana in the Dating site was, in fact, pretty awesome. The message's exchange was cool, the actual date was hilarious and the aftermath was even funnier. Some lies came back to bite you in the ass, Gabriana.

I have to admit I had no expectations about the book, but I'm impresed by how fresh and funny is the author's writing style, how charismatic the characters are and how fun the story is. I'm intrigued about Gabriana's next work destination. Also can't wait for the next installment of this story.

#GuestPost Writing Expectations by Aimee Brown

Writing Expectations – Let the characters write their story – a lesson that drove me mad.

by Aimee Brown

* * *


It’s really kind of funny but I didn’t expect to be good at the things people are now telling me I’m great at. The conflict for instance. I hate conflict in real life. It makes me uncomfortable to even watch it on TV. In real life, I’ll avoid it, for the most part, at any expense. Who am I to be the one to cause strife in someone’s life? No thank you.
Conflict is necessary for writing, though. You can’t write the perfect character, no one will like them. And you can’t write a story where everything goes smoothly for the characters. Readers will get bored. Once I grasped that I had to torment the characters, little things became easier and the tormenting kind of planned and wrote itself. Plot lines got more complicated and things took turns I never saw coming. Most of the conflict in the book, I didn’t plan. The characters wrote it for me. Even though I wanted to plan out their voice and the path they took, they wouldn’t allow it.
In all honesty, something I never expected to happen was to have the conflicts coincide with other conflicts that weren’t even written yet. When I looked back and reread my first draft, I was even impressed at times. Somehow my own thoughts turned on me and became this story that I never saw coming. I definitely didn’t plan it. I knew I needed something to continue to be a secret to keep the reader going but how I would figure out what it should be, evaded me. To my surprise, the secrets even wrote themselves.
Each little thing I threw at Emi seemed to play into a bigger problem further on down the road. Those are all things I didn’t plan. The characters did that for me. It seems if you give someone enough personality and wit, they can keep the story moving without you needing to give their next move a lot of thought.
As I would write things would suddenly hit me as to how I’d like for them to play out. They never went the way I wanted and that was hard because it would change the thing I’d planned after that, and even after that. I quickly learned to stop planning. It’s just not my style, I guess.
I think something I’ve realized now that the book is finished and edited is that writing without looking back is important in the fact that when you read a piece of a story, it won’t work. But, when you read the book as a whole, things play into each other in ways you’d never expected when writing each section individually. Obviously, no one sits down and writes a 65k+ word book in one sitting. Which means if you are a panster kind of writer, like myself, each day can bring new moods and new ideas for the characters that never seem to shut up in your head. If I’d have gone back and reread the writing I did the day before, my characters might have been one dimension while I tried to force the voice on them that I wanted. Instead, continuing where I left off, made them more believable as a real person. Their moods changed, their ideas became deeper and their personality shined brighter than my own.
I guess I ‘d always kind of thought that the author chose the voice and conflict of the characters, not the other way around. But truthfully, if a story works, the characters write it for you and they seem to do it in a way you couldn’t have planned. It really showed me that writing isn’t all about skill. Environment and things that happen day to day in your real life also take part in every sentence that you write.
Now, I’m completely open to whatever turns my stories takes. Messing up the first draft isn’t going to be the end of the world. Planning the first few chapters seems to be really all I need. AND, the worse I allow the writing to be at first, seems to inspire the best of ideas come in the second draft.
So, if the characters in your head won’t follow your direction, that’s OK. They seem to know the story better than you do.

Hi there everyone! 

One new book by Kennedy Fox is live! A new couple. A new duet. This time we'll be reading a second chance romance featuring Logan and Kayla (we met them already in Drew & Courtney's duet) and how dangerous their relationship would be. 

I'm so excited about their story.Since I read the previous duet I was wondering who Skylar is, and in this book we'll discover it!!! 

I'm reading the book at the moment and I'll be sharing my review this saturday! <3

This second-chance romance will have you gasping and cheering this two on from the first to the last page! Are you ready to play the final game?
***
Logan Knight is a real life knight in shining armor.
A detective godsend in a sleek black suit has me thinking less than secretive thoughts. Brooding and mysterious, he’s the kind of guy every girl instantly notices. Between his seductive smirk and charming good looks, it’s no wonder I can’t help the way he makes me feel whenever I’m near him.
Too bad he’s unavailable—or so he says.
He thinks I’m a do-gooder who shouldn’t get involved with a guy like him. His past is messy and relationships just add to that. He insists the timing is all wrong and he’s devoted to his career, but I don’t buy that excuse for a second. I see the way his body tenses and his jaw ticks every time another guy is around me. He just won’t admit it, but I’m more determined than ever to show him what he’s missing.
I’m a devoted animal rescuer and I’ll risk everything to save them, but when a dramatic turn of events puts both our lives at risk, I’m positive Logan will write me off for good. But when he asks for my help with a personal crisis, I know it’s my last chance to finally show him I can handle anything he throws my way—messy past and all.
He might think he has me all figured out, but I’ll prove him wrong no matter what he thinks. This game of push and pull has me running in circles. One wrong move and we could both lose.
Checkmate, Knight.
