<— An angsty, old-school indie feel, “unrequited love” (just enough to hurt!!) romance from our very own R!!! WE LOVE R, and we (I!!) LOVED book #1 (in fact, here’s my review). 😀
And book #2 JUST WENT LIVE!!! Ahhhhhh sweet relief!!!! The duet is complete!!
Maryse: I just finished R’s book!!!!!! Wow. I loved it. I cried twice. <3 Great writing, and fantastic little details during conversations that made the conversations flow naturally. The characters came to life and moved as if I were watching a movie. And yes, I was so excited about the proposition and then I was all… WHAT? OH RIGHT!! GAH!!!!!! LOL! But I love that kind of “cliffhanger” because it’s not so much a cliffhanger since the end of this one essentially came to a solid conclusion… it’s just the start to part 2. 😉 I’m in!
Leslie M: Maryse, that is it! The “flow” of Waiting for the Sun was perfect. I couldn’t think of the word. I am DYING for part 2 as I have no idea where story going.
Nay: I couldn’t agree more, Maryse!
Tasha J: Ahhh, Waiting for the Sun is getting super intense in the feels and I’m scared!! I feel like covering my eyes, taking a peek *deep breath* and then covering my eyes again. Lol
Leslie M: Waiting for the Sun…*sighs again but also shoots laser beams at R’s butt to hurry up with sequel* 😉
Cheryl: ROBIN, DID I SEE THIS CORRECTLY…RIDERS ON THE STORM RELEASED YESTERDAY?!!!!!!! I’M SOOO EXCITED TO READ IT. *JUMPS UP AND DOWN* Think I will re-read Waiting For the Sun first. What great timing now that I’m done with the birthday and prom drama. Off to read…
About book #1:
Francesca Valentine would rather swear off chocolate than go on vacation solo, but she made a promise to her late father to come out of her shell and live a little. When her best friend bails on their annual girls’ trip, she vows to do just that, but her plan is foiled when the hotel loses her reservation. Alone and stranded in Austin, Texas during one of the world’s largest music festivals, she’s rescued by a mysterious stranger, and an unexpected friendship blossoms.
Ten years after losing his family in a tragic accident, Darian Fox is finally back on his feet. The onetime rock star turned successful indie label-owner is content with the isolated life he’s created for himself and wants to keep it that way. But when he’s forced to travel to Texas on behalf of his company, he finds it’s hard to be alone in a city overrun with people. He meets the beautiful, magnetic Francesca and discovers alone is the last thing he wants to be.
The unlikely pair form a bond that elevates them from merely existing to living a life less ordinary. But the lines of friendship quickly blur, and when Francesca’s true feelings surface, Darian will have to decide between breaking her heart and breaking the promise he made to the family he lost. With his own heart ruled by guilt, does Francesca even stand a chance?
