MY REVIEW:
COULD NOT PUT THE BOOK DOWN!!! I can’t get enough of Eva and Rafe. They are such in depth characters, this prequel barely scratched the surface. I can’t wait for more. Not to mention the members of the band. They all have something dark they’ve been through, from what I can tell. I’m so happy that this is Black Hearts Still Beat: The beginning, because I NEED MORE!!
.

EXCERPT:

“I made you some hot chocolate.” He offered me the mug and I took a sip, the smooth rich liquid warming my insides.
“How very rock star of you.” 
“I try.” His gray eyes twinkled with laughter. “Come here.” 
I went to Rafe, and he eased the mug out of my hand, placing it on the ledge. His long fingers brushed my jaw, moving along my neck and into my hair as he tilted my face up to his. “I’ve wanted to do this again all night.” 
My hands wound around his neck as he kissed me, his lips brushing over mine with a heated desperation I felt right down to my toes. We stumbled back as Rafe’s hand slipped to the small of my back pushing me closer as he pressed me against the wall.
“Rafe…” I panted and he broke the kiss.
“You want me to stop?” His eyes searched mine, his pupils blown with lust.
“N- no.”
“Thank fuck.” He dived for me again, attacking my mouth with fervent need. One of his hands slid to my throat, stroking the skin there, his lips chasing his fingers. Sucking and biting, sending shocks of pleasure zinging through me.
“Where have you been all my life?” Rafe whispered into my neck, his words so low I wasn’t sure they were for me. But I’d heard them. Like a gunshot to the heart they’d impacted me.
It was crazy.
We didn’t know each other. We didn’t know any of the important stuff. But I was falling. Hurtling towards the ground hoping, praying, he’d be there to catch me.
“Eva, tell me what you want?” He lifted his face, eyes dark and stormy and so full of need. I swallowed hard.
“This.” I pulled his face to mine, kissing him deeply, rubbing myself against him shamelessly. His mouth curved, and he pushed his head to mine, forcing me further against the wall. My hands pressed at my sides, steadying myself as he hooked one of his hands under my thigh, hitching my leg around his hip. I could feel him thick and hard beneath his jeans, but I wasn’t ready for that.

MY REVIEW

I loved everything about this trilogy. The world, the characters, storyline, the heartbreak and the love. It had it’s dark moments, with good reason, but it also had lighter moments full of love, friendship and laughter.

The RH part of it was so well done. I swooned so much. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but if I was forced I would pick Gage. But each guy was so wonderful in his so way and so good to Celeste.

As much as I hated the series the end, it had a satisfying and wonderful conclusion. If you love Paranormal RH and haven’t checked this one out, I highly recommend you do! I hope to see more from Grace White.

 

Excerpt:
“We have to go back for Lucas. Take me back, now.” I grabbed at Gage’s sweater, tears streaming down my face.
“Breathe, little witch.” He pulled me into his chest. “Breathe.”
“But he… the vampires…”
“Lucas will be fine.” His hand cupped the back of my head.
“He will?” I eased out of his grip, craning my neck to see his eyes. Needing to see honesty there.
“I promise.”
“What was that back there?” It had been a blur, but I’d seen the burst of power. Felt it before Gage got us out of there.
“That was Fae magic. The Riverbank is protected by wards, protection spells. They keep unwanted visitors out.”
“I didn’t know.” I was beginning to realize I didn’t know a lot of things.
“You didn’t exactly come with an instruction manual, Celeste. And we didn’t want to overwhelm you. Telling you about the wards didn’t seem important at the time.”
“Lucas will really be okay?”
Gage backed up, giving me space, and ran a hand down his face. “He’ll be fine. If he needed help, he would have called for it. But there is none more powerful than Lucas.”
My shoulders sagged with relief.
“You really care about him, don’t you?” Gage asked tightly.
“I… I can’t explain it. It’s like you came along and all I saw was you. My heart became yours. But then spending time with Lucas, a small part became his too.”
He inhaled a ragged breath and looked to the sky. I went to him, hating the distance between us. Sliding my hands up his chest, I looped my arms around his neck and demanded his attention. “It doesn’t change how I feel about you, Gage.”
“Sharing is not in my nature, little witch.” He smoothed his thumb down my cheek and over my bottom lip. “When I think of you with another, I want to—”
“Ssh.” I silenced him with a kiss. “I’m not asking you to share.”
At least, I didn’t think I was.
Lucas and I were more friends. It wasn’t explosive and passionate the way it was with me and Gage, but I had felt something with him earlier. Gage broke the kiss, staring down at me. Slowly his mask of composure slid back into place and I knew this conversation was over.
For now.
“We should get moving. Once you’re settled with the wolves, I’ll make sure Lucas is okay and then pay Gerard another visit. Dahlia needs to be taken care of once and for all.”
“You’re not leaving me here!” I shrieked.
“It’s just until things with Dahlia calm down. She won’t stop, Celeste. Not until she has what she wants.”
“And what does she want Gage? Me… or you?”
He blew out an exasperated breath, rubbing his temples. “Come on. The sentries have picked up our scents.” Gage set off toward the bayou. Last time we’d been here, we came in through the main street, but this time we were already deep in wolf territory.
We hadn’t gotten twenty feet when Jaxon Gallant burst out of the trees. “Bloodsucker, these visits are becoming a far too regular occurrence.”
“Is Laken around?”
“He’s out at his cabin. What’s this all about?” Jaxon moved into Gage’s space and the air around us charged with tension. 
Fed up with being surrounded by men who insisted on treating me like nothing more than a damsel in distress, I stomped past them both and called, “While the two of you figure out whose dick is bigger, I’m going to find Laken.”
Jaxon snickered while Gage rushed up beside me. “We were not—”
“Save it. I’m hungry, tired, and I don’t have the energy to argue with you.” 
He stepped in front of me, cutting off my route. “Why didn’t you say something?”
I met Gage’s concerned gaze and grimaced. “I’m fine. Come on, let’s get this over with.”
“It must be bad if you’re running here.” Jaxon fell into step on my other side. 
“It’s—”
“Celeste.” Gage’s voice was grave. “We should wait until we speak with Laken.”
“My brother doesn’t keep things from me.” The younger Gallant puffed out his chest.
Gage raised a brow at that. Thankfully, the dense trees began to clear, and I spotted Laken’s cabin in the distance. He was out front, shirtless, chopping wood. As we drew nearer, I could make out the ripple of his muscles as he swung the axe down, splitting the huge logs clean in half.
“You’ve got a little drool,” Jaxon mocked. “Right there.” He reached for me, but I batted his hand away, feeling my cheeks heat.
Gage growled beside me and when I slid my guilty eyes to his, I said, “I can’t help it. He’s right there and he’s half-naked. I’d be crazy not to notice all that.” I waved my hand in Laken’s direction.
I was playing—for the most part—but it didn’t stop my jealous vampire from stalking off ahead of me. 
“Think you pissed him off.” Jaxon didn’t bother trying to tamp down the amusement in his voice.
“He’ll get over it,” I said, feeling smug to have Gage at my mercy for once.
By the time we reached Gage and Laken, they hadn’t killed each other. I took that as a positive sign.
“Look what the wolf dragged in.” Jaxon slung his arm around my neck. “Get it? Wolf?” He howled with laughter, but his brother and Gage looked anything but amused.
“Jaxon,” Laken barked. “Please remove your arm from the Regent’s neck.”
Not Celeste.
Not even girl.
Just the Regent.
I bristled.

Veiled By Desire by Candace Robinson – Interview & Excerpt

In Laith, when the moons are high, Tavarra is allowed to walk the land as a human for one day, losing her seahorse-like tail. But should she remain out of the water, a curse will overtake her, turning her into a beast with sharp fangs and long claws. A EA28E0E2-6B00-44B2-8600-C0EEFAA66A4Cbeast that, on some nights, takes the shape of a rampaging, uncontrollable monster.

Rhona, along with her village, are under a sinister leader’s control. Their leader has taken Rhona from the boy she loves, stripped away her abilities and, under the threat of killing everyone she loves, forces her on a dangerous task to retrieve a dark prism that will increase his already massive powers.

When Tavarra and Rhona cross paths, they discover they need each other. Rhona knows how to help the cursed sea creature, while Tavarra knows where to find the dark prism. They embark on a mission that could help them break Tavarra’s spell and save Rhona’s family and village. But with an untamable beast inside Tavarra, nothing is certain…

Candace Robinson

Candace spends her days consumed by words and hoping to one day find her own DeLorean time machine. Her life consists of avoiding migraines, admiring Bonsai trees, watching classic movies, and living with her husband and daughter in Texas—where it can be forty degrees one day and eighty the next! Now let’s find out how this very versatile writer ticks:

Hi Candace,

BookDragonGirlDoes writing energize or exhaust you?

Candace Robinson – For me, first draft is the most exhausting because I just want to have something done so I can break apart and re-piece together! Like creating my own Frankenstein’s Monster! Once the first draft is done, things get much easier!

BookDragonGirl“It’s alive!” Love me some Frankenstein’s monster references!
How long on average does it take you to write a book?

Candace RobinsonFirst draft is pretty fast. Normally under a month! But, sometimes my first drafts are also pretty short!

BookDragonGirlWell, Is there lots to do before you dive in and start writing the story?

Candace RobinsonI don’t outline so not really. I basically know how many chapters are going to be in the story and basic scenes, but sometimes things take a turn in a totally different direction than I had originally planned.

BookDragonGirlDo you have beta readers, and do you listen to their feedback?

Candace RobinsonYes! I have some awesome beta readers. I do listen to their feedback, because the ones on my team have awesome ideas and understand my story and writing.

BookDragonGirlWhere do you get your information or ideas for your books?

Candace RobinsonSometimes I’m inspired by movies or music, then I try to weave in my own spin on things.

BookDragonGirlOoh…that’s interesting!! What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?

Candace RobinsonTo be patient. I can’t build a whole story in one day!

BookDragonGirl – This is book two in the Laith world. What was the inspiration for this story? Also, are any of the characters from Clouded By Envy in this book?

Candace RobinsonFor Tavarra’s character, It was loosely inspired by The Little Mermaid meets The Wolf Man. The only character from Clouded By Envy is the Stone of Desire. But! There is a distant relative down the line, Rhona, who is related from some of the characters from Clouded!

BookDragonGirlOh, this sounds extremely interesting! The Little Mermaid meets The Wolf Man! We are intrigued by that description! Now does one of the main characters hold a special place in your heart? If so, why?

Candace RobinsonFor Veiled, I would have to say Rhona and Quil. I just love their relationship when they are together so much.

BookDragonGirlWhat is the future for the characters? Will there be a sequel?

Candace RobinsonTwo of the characters from Veiled have POVs in the final book, Shadowed By Despair!

BookDragonGirlYay! That’s exciting! Shadowed By Despair has it’s cover reveal today too! Do you have any other new series planned?

Candace RobinsonI have a YA book titled, Lyrics & Curses, coming out next year! It’s a paranormal/fantasy romance set in 1985!

BookDragonGirlOoh…maybe you will get your DeLorean!! Okay, do you feel like it’s most important to have A) Strong characters B) Mind-blowing Plot twists or C) Epic settings?

Candace RobinsonPretty much all my books are character driven so, for me, I’d say strong characters!

BookDragonGirlYes they are, and I’m a character driven reader! What’s the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex?

Candace RobinsonI actually haven’t had a problem writing from a male POV yet! I don’t know why it comes naturally for me, but it just does. At least from my end! Readers may think differently lol!

BookDragonGirlWell I just think you’re an awesome writer, and where characters are your strong point, then that may be why you have no problem.

Thank you so much, Candace, for letting us into your writing world for a little while. Now how about an excerpt from Veiled by Desire?!

As Tavarra tried to leave the gravitational pull of the powerful ocean waves, each one crashed and pounded against her strong body. She swished through the murky sea, her tail flicking at the rough current as the liquid attempted to haul her back into its clutches.

Tonight was a chance for her to escape the haunting depths she so desperately dreamed of leaving behind. Tavarra pushed her head out of the sea’s liquid claws, finally finding herself near the sandy shore. She took a deep breath through her mouth, no longer needing the gills etched on each side of her neck.

Holding steady, she stared through the last rays of the waning day, searching for him. But the young man wasn’t anywhere in her line of sight yet. Keeping on top of the liquid swells, her gaze fixed on the caramel-colored sand. As her arms repeatedly cut through the vigorous surge, a hint of desperation filled her—she couldn’t get swallowed back up. At last, her body struck the grainy granules, swept in blackness.

She sighed in relief.

With no time to spare, Tavarra dragged her exhausted body by her forearms across the sand. Each tiny grain rubbed against the delicate skin between her fingers and nails. She came to a halt and rolled herself to a sitting position, letting the edge of a cool wave caress the end of her tangerine tail. Bony plates fused together with a fleshy covering lined the tail’s body, and the tip came to a curled point.

A heavy breath forced its way out and tugged harshly at her lungs. “Goodbye,” she whispered, half to herself and half to the ocean cage that, for seventeen years, had never been a true home. “Please let this happen.” Tavarra’s heart pounded rapidly, and had it beaten any harder, her sternum would have cracked.

Bringing her sandy hands to her waist, she glided them down her moistened tawny skin until they met the vivid exoskeleton. The silver of the twin moons shone down in answer, as if telling her it would work. It must work.

Tavarra had recently heard a tale of when the twin moons would rise, there would be a way for her sea dweller kind to truly walk the land of Laith. She desired it with everything in her. If this worked, she would never return to the watery home—her underwater grave.

Slowly, she slid her thumb beneath the soft plates of her tail. To her surprise, the tail pushed away from her skin, as if it were never a part of her at all. She thought there would be pain, but there wasn’t, only a filmy residue left behind.

Tavarra’s lips pulled up on each side, and she let out a rumbling, giddy laugh to the moons, to the ocean, and to herself. Tugging the tail a little more, she shimmied out from the exoskeleton and found smooth bare legs underneath—as she had hoped. The story had been right. If only she knew sooner that legs rested beneath the tail—then she could have been doing this every time the moons were at their fullest. A continuation of delighted laughter echoed from her as it bounced off the waves and into the darkened forest.

She kicked these new-found creations, releasing the legs in their entirety from the confined appendage. To her it felt natural, more than surreal.

Genre: Fantasy

Publisher: The Parliament House Press

In Laith, when the moons are high, Tavarra is allowed to walk the land as a human for one day, losing her seahorse-like tail.

Excerpt

Seven years of this. Tavarra closed her eyes and gripped the chains around the tree that bound her wrists together. She howled with urgency, screamed, and bared her fangs. As she stared up at the twin moons in the darkening sky, she knew her fate was coming. A fire spread throughout her entire body with a wicked touch, and she shook violently.

“The chains will hold this time,” her friend Eza said, landing on Tavarra’s shoulder. If Tavarra killed the pesky bat, there would be nothing, no one, and she had grown to love Eza after all these years.

“Get out of here, Eza! Now!” Tavarra screamed.

“I’ll be right here,” the bat murmured and flew up into the tree above. Eza looked incredibly similar to a fairy except for the thin blackened wings, fangs, and sharper-pointed ears. She was a little taller than the size of Tavarra’s hand from wrist to the tip of the claw on her middle finger.

Tavarra was trying to fight the change. She would win this time. As she breathed in the scents of Laith, Tavarra knew it was a lie, and indeed, she knew she’d failed when her skin began to stretch. She could feel her face taking on a new shape, and that was when the terror came because the night would be unknown to her. That was what haunted her the most. Tavarra held back the tears, unwilling to break, unwilling to bend and show weakness.

All that remained in her soul, heart, and existence, was hunger. She yearned and thirsted for blood, meat, and bones.

MY REVIEW:

THIS IS THE MOST CREATIVE, UNIQUE, TOUCHING, FULL OF HEART STORY!!!!!!! This Author just keeps writing these books that I love. Most people who read my reviews, blog, social media, etc know that one of my favorite books is Clouded By Envy! Well, Veiled By Desire takes place in the same world that two of the main characters from Clouded come from, the world of Laith. Although it is a standalone. No need to have read Clouded By Envy, but it will have added to the enjoyment.

The author does such a great job with world building in this book. The world of Laith is filled with different and strange things. Woods that bleed, and that come alive, people with powers, four leaf clover that has power, and there’s even a werewolf in this one. The details In the world building are so well described, that you can picture it like you’re there in Laith yourself. She leaves just enough to the imagination to keep us engaged. It’s perfection on the page.

The characters…this author always writes her characters well. She writes dialogue so seamlessly that the characters become real, and you become wrapped up in them. I fell so in love with these characters, that I still find it hard to choose a favorite. Every time I try I end up with a bunch, lol! Eza, Tavarra, Perin, Quil & Rhona. They are all such great characters, I can’t say enough about. I feel like I could write a paragraph for each of them. But I won’t. I will leave it up to you to read the book and learn how AMAZING, how BRILLIANT this cast of characters really is!!!!

Don’t miss this AMAZING book!!! I highly, highly recommend it to all!!! INFINITY OF STARS for this one!!

Clouded by Envy (Laith #1)

37654382._SY475_

Brenik has always been envious of his twin sister, Bray. Growing up as fairy-like creatures, known as bats, everything came easier to Bray. While Brenik spent his time in her shadows, never feeling he was enough. After escaping their world of Laith, and living on Earth for ten years, Brenik attempts to strike a deal with the Stone of Desire to become human. Though true humanity is not an option, he will accept the curse that will alter him to get as close as he can.

Living in a tree trunk for the past year hasn’t been easy for Bray, more so after her brother disappears again. When a human boy and his brother, Wes, find her, a new friendship is struck. Through Wes, Bray learns there can be more to life than waiting within a tree. But worrying over where Brenik has vanished to always remains in the back of her mind.

When Bray reunites with Brenik, she realizes she must help him break the curse after she discovers the need for blood is beginning to overpower him. The curse not only damages those who get close to Brenik, but it could also destroy whatever is blooming between Bray and Wes.

Loving Kalvinstandalone friends-to-lovers second-chance romance

I knew it would end in disaster, but I didn’t listen to reason. I didn’t care. Because I loved him so much.

Kalvin Kennedy ruled my heart.

Until he destroyed it.

Shattered it so completely that I became someone else. Someone I loathed. Someone who repeatedly lied to her loved ones.

So, I ran.

From him. From myself. Desperate to hide my new reality.

But I could only run so far.

 

Saving Bradstandalone enemies-to-lovers romance

I need to escape.

To put as much distance between me and that monster so I can start living my life.

Yet, even the vast Atlantic Ocean isn’t enough to sever the connection. To allow me to forget how he’s ruined me. His hold is more than just physical. He has a vise grip on my head and my heart, and I can’t breathe, can’t think, can’t function.

So, I do everything to blot it out.

Until he reappears in my life.

Brad McConaughey. So hot. So infuriating. So in love with my best friend.

Every word out of Brad’s mouth makes me want to throat punch him or kick him in the nuts.

But he makes me feel, and I hate him for it. A part of me might actually love him for it.

 

Seducing Kadenstandalone forbidden romance

When I was a little girl, I dreamed of falling in love. The all-consuming sweep-you-off-your-feet kind of love I swooned over in movies.

It didn’t take long for that fairytale notion to come crashing down around me. Now I’m trapped in a marriage I despise with no way out.

The only light in the dark is Kaden Kennedy—the one true love of my life. He doesn’t know he is, because I’m forced to love him from afar, condemned to toss and turn at night, crying over everything I want and all I can never have.

Seeing him day in, day out, destroys me, but there’s no other choice; I had to push him away to keep him safe.

Because if my husband ever finds out I’m in love with one of my students, I won’t be the only one in danger.

 

Forgiving Kevenstandalone second-chance romance

They say you never forget your first love, but I’m determined to prove Keven Kennedy is just a random boy from my past.

It’s not like I still think about him after all this time. Or daydream about how hot his kisses were and what it felt like to have his hands on my skin.

Nope, that’s not me. I’m in a happy place in my life. Engaged to a great man and finishing the last year of my photography degree.

But since I returned to Massachusetts, everything reminds me of the boy who ripped my heart to shreds. Especially when my fiancé’s constant business trips, and dwindling attention, raises old fears to the surface.

And then the unthinkable happens—Keven saunters back into my life, turning it upside down once more.

It’s ironic he thinks he’s protecting me when the only one I need protecting from is him.

Excerpt from Loving Kalvin (Kennedy Boys #4)

LANA

I change the bed, while Kal clears away the dirty clothes and the empty boxes. Then we get changed—sleep shorts and a tank for me and track shorts for Kal—and snuggle up in bed, watching a movie on his laptop. My head is resting on his bare chest, testing my willpower to the limit. Kal is all sharp angles, and defined muscles, and my hands start wandering without permission.

“Are you feeling me up?” I can hear the amusement in his voice.

No point denying it. Not when my fingers are currently exploring every dip and curve of his abs. “Yeah. Got a problem with it?”

He laughs lightly. “Hell no. Don’t stop.” His arm is firm around my waist, and, with his other hand, he plays with my hair. “Lana,” he whispers.

“Yeah,” I whisper back, looking up at him.

“I love you.”

Tears well in my eyes. “I love you too.”

I want this to be real. So, so much.

I wish there was no other secret between us.

No risk of this all falling apart.

Not when it feels so exquisite. So perfect. So right.

We’re on borrowed time and I’m clinging to it like a drowning woman clinging to a life belt.

Review:

This is such an awesome collection of books!! The Kyler books are the first three books and introduce us to the Kennedy’s world. But this collection of books four through seven are all standalone books in that world, and they’re AMAZING!!!!

A quick overview of each one:

LOVING KALVIN is a friends-to-lovers, second chance romance. This is a beautiful romance. It’s about two soulmates finding their way back to each other. It’s about forgiveness, understanding and loyalty.

“If you love someone, really love someone, you stand by them, even when they’ve screwed up. Especially then. You forgive them for their mistakes”

SAVING BRAD is an enemies-to-lovers romance. This is about two people struggling. One with an outside monster making it so she can’t truly live her life, and the other from an inside monster keeping him from enjoying his life. These two enemies come together in a very powerful way. Don’t miss the twist & turns of suspense, or the amazing love story that overcomes all odds.

SEDUCING KADEN is a forbidden romance. Normally I don’t like to read books with cheating, because somebody is going to get hurt and I don’t enjoy reading about that. But when I’m reading about Eva, who had a terrible, loveless upbringing and was told at 14 that she would be marrying this older man and was forced into this loveless, abusive marriage. Now I can deal with reading about cheating.

Kaden adores Eva. He feels protective of her, and wants to help her. Eva adores Kaden. She won’t let him help, because she feels sure it will get him killed. This is a very emotional, passionate, intense love story!! Two hearts that are broken when apart, but have an intense connection when they are together. But the odds against them are so great, will they ever be able to really be together as one? Don’t miss this this beautiful, suspenseful love story!

FORGIVING KEVEN is a second chance romance. Keven never got over his first love from high school. He didn’t even date anyone after her. Then he sees her through FBI surveillance, where he works. They are trying to take down her fiancé. All Keven can think about is how he needs to protect Cheryl. Will Cheryl forgive Keven for the past? Can he protect her from her fiancé? Don’t miss the suspenseful twist and turns in this passionate book about a very sexy, protective FBI Agent and his first and only love!

“No one else ever measured up to you, and, even if I had found someone worthy, how could I be with her when I’m still madly in love with you?”

All these books have happy ever afters. The Kennedy Boys are a rare species of men, brothers who are always there for each other. We see this in the Kyler Collection and more so as each book goes along. Don’t miss out on these New Adult Romances that will keep your heart pounding long after you finish reading.

Cover Reveal: The Harder You Fall by L.A. Cotton

 

THE HARDER YOU FALL

 

COVER & BLURB REVEAL

We are excited to share the cover and blurb for The Harder You Fall, the highly anticipated final story in the Rixon Raiders series from bestselling author L A Cotton.



To celebrate, L A is giving away a signed paperback ARC with a $10 Amazon GC over on her Facebook Page

 

BLURB

Mya Hernandez has scars.
 
The kind that run deep and leave marks.
Rixon is only supposed to be a temporary place to hide, but it’s quickly becoming something more. 
She’s almost certain it has nothing to do with the blond-haired, blue-eyed football player who makes her laugh. Who makes her believe in fairy tales again.
Even if she knows her life is destined to be nothing more than a tragedy.
 
Asher Bennet has secrets.
 
Not the scandalous kind, but the ones that fester, slowly eating away at your soul.
On the face of it, he’s Mr Popular, always down for a party and causing a little mayhem. 
But on the inside, he just wants someone to see him. Really see him. Too bad the one girl who sees past his facade has already friend-zoned him. 
It’s probably for the best though.
 
She’s different.
A fighter.
She’s everything he wants but can never have.
 
Until Mya’s past and Asher’s present collide in ways neither of them saw coming.
 
And suddenly the thing you need most is the very thing you’re supposed to hate.
***

In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find L A immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.
