Welcome to another Sample Sunday! we are just about two weeks away from the release of Same Time Next Week, so I’m sharing another sample from that project today. It is a LONG Snip in which we meet Rod Phillips, reigning prince of rock and one of Jackson’s oldest friends. This scene takes place after Jackson and Shelby begin dating and Jackson is determined to keep his budding love life under wraps.
Today I’m hosting a chapter reveal from multicultural romance author Mika Jolie. I’ve enjoyed the first two books in her Martha’s Way series and I’m excited for the next installment!
Oh em gee. Why do I torture myself with Novellas?! They’re just too short and I always want more and this novella was no different. This is my first male/male romance (of course I have read the menage romance/novella but something about having Evan in the story makes it different than a male/male) and I must say that Roni ‘eased me into it’. I can’t imagine the depth of skill it takes to write a scintillating sex scene from a point of view that you have never experienced… but as we well know, Roni is one of the best at writing scenes that make you feel like you’re in the room.
I read this in a few hours while sitting on the beach. It was exactly what I needed and hit the spot for a cute love story that centers around a family run dance studio.
Do you need to like the characters in a story? If you don’t like a character, what are the major reasons why– personality, life choices, language, not developed enough?
I have to say that I am enjoying this neat series from Harper Miller, all centered around a steamy little website called KinkySingles.com. The first story, Ironic was BLISTERING hot and Renewed is no different. From the cover to the epilogue, I was drawn into the inevitable union of Tanya and Kenji. Also, Miller is reminding me of my affinity for Asian men. Kenji sounds.. delightful. And by delightful I mean DAMN HOT.
CCJ has very quickly become one of my favorite authors. Her easygoing style doesn’t hinder her ability to breathe life into three dimensional characters and realistic situations. What I’ve always loved about Christina’s books is that I feel like they could be you or me or the gal next door. I can relate and commiserate and there is always a happy ending for a person that looks like me.
With me, thinking often begins with casting. WHO are my main characters? What do they look like? What are their quirks? What are their physical properties? How tall is s/he? It helps to create the backstory that I keep in my mind and then liberally disperse throughout the story.
This is a great book if you’d love a quick read about the beauty and wilderness of Alaska and it’s native people. Also if you love some steamy sexy “lemme soak you up because we don’t have much time together” lovemaking! :)
