Today, I bring a special guest to the Writers Revolution. She is a dear friend of mine and has a new book that just came out.
About the Author:
Author of the wildly funny and sensual Melrose shops novels, WITHOUT END and WITHOUT WORDS. To escape the pressures of life, I began writing. Creating a flawed, yet perfectly endearing man was my escape. Realizing I could create more than one, was my salvation. I enjoy traveling, reading, listening to music, and hiking. I’d rather go to Yosemite or the Sequoias for a family vacation than stand in line at an amusement park. I don’t mind getting dirty, I’ll often chose beer over wine, and I’m a diehard sports spectator. Yet, I also harbor a healthy appreciation for the smell of Nordstrom department stores, theater, the ballet, modern dance, concerts, pricey sunglasses, a perfect martini, and designer shoes. I appreciate feedback and encourage readers to enter a library every so often to smell the books, while still embracing the wonderful Exploratorium of ebooks. Times-r-a-changing and we need to remain current, but there is no harm in remembering where we came from.
Let's take a quick look at AR's new book Without Words
Thalia Frederickson has a new lease on life. Finally, free from the Devil, but never far from her demons. She landed the hottest piece of real estate for her shop, Rock Your Cakes and Cupcakes. Unexpectedly, her salvation works two doors away, in the form of a brooding, tattooed Angel.
The new shop on Melrose has something to offer that BB Bartholomew cannot resist. His sweet tooth is ready, but nothing can prepare him for the frightened and adorable little baker.
Can BB put down his whips for love? Will Thalia give BB the chance to show his feelings, WITHOUT WORDS?
This is the second book in the Melrose Shops Series, and to say I couldn't wait was an understatement. I loved the first book (Without End) so much that I couldn't put it down and Without Words was no different. The plot itself took me by surprise. When you learn about Thalia's past and what she had to endure, your heart breaks for her. No woman should have to go through life the way she did. Instantly I felt sympathy and compassion for Thalia's character and I was hooked from there. BB, on the other hand, we met in the first book of the Melrose Shop Series and was a bit more complex to understand. This finally gave us insight into him and his world. The stereotypes that were placed on him by his looks, what he does for a living and what he does at the Playhouse had nothing to do with his actual persona. It was nice to see this side of him as he finds himself falling for Thalia.
The descriptions in this story were so intricately done that I could smell the Nutella that was used repeatedly, I could hear the waves of water crashing onto the shore, and feel the intensity in chemistry between Thalia and BB. I loved every minute of this story.
