Meet Natalia Albrite, Author of That Guy and That Girl plus Review

Welcome to the tour for That Guy and That Girl by Natalia Albrite. Not only do I have an excerpt and review for you today, but the author also tells all about her five essentials for writing. The list is pretty familiar to me! Please enjoy all of it and feel free to ask Natalia questions in the comments section. And then be sure to follow the tour to learn even more and for more chances to enter the giveaway!

That Guy and That Girl

Olivia Meadows is excited to finish her senior year of college as a volleyball national champion beside her teammates and best friends. A complication arrives in the form of John Hunter, that guy, her brother’s best friend whom she has had a secret crush on since she was eleven years old. Effortlessly charming and handsome, with a body honed by years of playing football, John initiates his charm offensive and Olivia finds herself unable to resist him.

John Hunter is pumped to finish his senior year of college as a football national champion beside his teammate and best friend. The only thing missing is that girl, Olivia Meadows, his best friend’s little sister. He needed to sow some wild oats before settling down with Olivia but now he is ready for something serious with the girl he has always admired.

Be careful what you wish for. John and Olivia find themselves dealing with adult consequences very quickly and wondering if their young love can endure the pressures of adulthood. Will they find deeper love or implode from the pressures of their own making?

Read an excerpt:
“Hey, I’ve missed you and I’m really glad to see you,” he says as he looks deep into my eyes. Simple words that say everything I want to hear right now. This is exactly what we need: to keep it simple and direct.

I want him to kiss me and I want him to do it now. I want to say ditto so we can get to the good stuff faster but just as quickly I decide to be as clear as he was, “I’ve missed you too and I’m so glad you’re here.”

We both stare at each other for a few seconds and then eventually smirk. He nods and says, “I’m gonna kiss the shit out of you now.”

I nod as he pulls me in closer. One arm moves to my lower back. I place my hands back on the pecs I want to appreciate more fully. He touches his lips to mine so gently. In some ways I want him to rush. I want him to deepen things quickly. But in more ways, I want him to take it slow and let this burn slow between us. It feels like forever since we have appreciated each other in this way.

He is clearly taking the slow route and eventually adds the slightest bit of tongue to his kisses. It’s subtle and I both love and hate the slowness in escalation. I involuntarily moan quietly. He knows how to build the tension. He pulls back and looks into my eyes again, “I love you.”

**My thoughts**
Wow. This is the first romance that I have read in a long time that went straight to the gut and just felt REAL. Yes, you have the long-awaited romance between the girl and her brother's best friend. I love those friends to lovers stories. But it isn't all rainbows and fairy tales and gets complicated very quickly. John and Olivia are dealing with the very real issues of race, making plans for the future after college, and then those little surprises that life sometimes likes to dish out. They stumble along the way, hoping that their long friendship and deep feelings for each other can get them through it all and ride a very real roller coaster that is so true to life. And all of the situations are handled in a non-preachy manner.

It's more than just a romance. It's also about friendship, loyalty, the importance of family, and how to really make an effort to have a successful relationship with your significant other, because that requires some actual work.

You're going to question some of their decisions and root for them the whole way, even when you're just as mad at them as they can be with each other. I felt like this story could happen to just about anyone and actually wonder if it was based on real-life events somehow. I really enjoyed this book and am impressed that it is the author's debut novel. It looks like a sequel is in the works and I am really looking forward to reading that one next.

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review.

My Top 5 Essentials for Writing by Natalia Albrite

#1: Pen and Paper

I was asked recently a simple question: pen and paper or computer? I loved the opportunity to stop and think about something I had taken for granted. This moment of reflection made me evaluate how essential pen and paper really are to me. I also got to see how all of my creativity starts with pen and paper—it really is my consistent origin point. Yes, the ideas and forms evolve from there but they always begin on a blank piece of paper and usually with my black .7 Pilot G-2 gel roller. There is something—dare I say it—spiritual, about literally beginning by hand!

#2: My Trusty MacBook

At some point, after I’ve exhausted the brainstorming and outlining phase on paper, I move on to my laptop. I have a sleek little MacBook that my amazing mom gave me for my birthday about three years ago. It was her way of supporting my dreams and I am forever grateful. It is on this laptop that I wrote That Guy and That Girl and many other pieces that I’m incredibly proud of!

#3: Coffee

It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say I’m a Starbucks obsessed addict. My husband, every once in a while, says, “I wonder how much you spend there in a year?” I always shut him down quickly because for me, it really doesn’t matter. My daily Starbucks treat is an indulgence that brings me so much joy that it’s essentially priceless to me. I love to fiddle around with my drink order and although I have simplified over the years, it is a mouthful to order (my kids can do it without pause): iced triple espresso with two pumps of toffee nut with extra ice in a personal cup. And then, I may write.

#4: Quiet Space

There are so many things about growing older that I love. Possibly my favorite thing is the depth at which I know myself and my willingness to be honest about all my quirks. I am a person who needs and loves solitude. I also have a husband and two really fun children so it’s not always possible but I do treasure it and I do need it to write. I’ve learned how to ask for quiet and I know that trying to write under any other circumstances is self-defeating.

#5: Structure

I am solidly in the outliner camp of writing. I blame it on having started writing with screenplays which are based in a very strict format and structure. I find that structure to be incredibly liberating. It turns out that I like having parameters and then having the opportunity to be creative within those parameters. There’s something very inspiring in limitations which may seem counter-intuitive but for me, it works. So, I always fully outline and give my work structure before diving into the writing phase. Even for this blog piece, I sat down and outlined it first by figuring out my subject, writing up the top five and coming back in to add the details.

What are your top 5 essentials for writing? How do you get yourself in the groove? I’d love to hear what gets you going!

Sex, Ego, and Love by Gregor Reti

Sex, Ego, and Love

Who needs Sex? – We all do.
Who has fantasies? – We all do.
Who withholds the truth and claims honesty? - We all do.
Who pretends to be happier than they really are? – We all do.
Who needs more courage to be honest? – We all do.
You see, we are humans after all. These spiritual teachings combined with erotica will foster self-awareness and conquer self-doubts. This is not your 50 shades of vanilla, but real-life sex adventures as experienced by the author. You too can achieve a liberated lifestyle and it is not coincidental that this book has landed in your hands. Tune yourself up to live the life you came for.

The two paths - sex and spirituality, can work together in profound ways. Whether you are seeking courage, clarity, passion, or inspiration, this book will bring you closer to liberation. The themes covered in this book range from reincarnation, religious dogma, soulmates, psychedelics, metaphysics, and the reveal of shameful sexual secrets. Sex is a powerful way to explore the many facets, strength, and weaknesses of our being. The taming of the ego is the way for rebirthing spiritual awareness. Many of us have suffered in shame, burn-out, and victim-based realities, yet we are destined for so much more. This book enlightens with great personal stories, wise teachings, and erotica. Friendly reminder: This book contains truthful and explicit content.

About Gregor Reti

Gregor had an explosive life. At the age of 13 he died, met God, and lost all death-related fears. Gregor describes it as “a starting point that allowed me to explore life to the fullest, leading me to meet my Soulmate, experience creative sexuality, and meet a personalized form of the Universe.”

Born from Hungarian immigrant parents, Gregor grew up in Germany where he modeled and worked in the music business that brought him to Los Angeles. The book “Sex, Ego and Love” exposes the essential nature of courage by following his radically honest journey through life, after-life, bisexuality, transgenderism, soulmateship, and celibacy, all punctuated with deeply spiritual reflections. The lessons he shares reveal a wise framework for liberating oneself from the claws of fear and embracing personal growth using self-awareness, authentic living, and self-love.

Inspired by his spicy erotica, Gregor uses his writing to fight for the ideal of truth while battling hypocrisy. “I wish I could prove faster how tightly courage and happiness are intertwined. We can only thrive in a radically honest environment”. His book, SEX, EGO AND LOVE, shows the devastating power of fear and how it isolates and cripples us, but also reveals a profound path to personal liberation.

Los Angeles Brewery Artist Colony resident and author Gregor Reti took the Proust Questionnaire challenge…
1.What is your idea of perfect happiness?

8.What do you consider the most overrated virtue?
- Intellectuality. Especially when it creates elitist thinking. It runs in my family.
9. On what occasion do you lie?

12. What is the quality you most like in a woman or a man?

21. Where would you most like to live?
- I spend much time in LA, Monaco and Hungary. It cannot get better than that.
22. What is your most treasured possession?

- Uncritical conformers; Patriots of any country; People taking orders blindly
36. How would you like to die?
- In an catastrophe – calming & helping my environment. I have been here many times and will be back many times more. Dying is overrated - not a big deal at all.

Don’t throw away anything – There is no away.
True love is selfless and it doesn’t know fear or doubt.

A past she can’t remember. A love he can’t forget.

After losing everything in an accident that he can only blame himself for, Robbie Newlin embraced sobriety and tried to live his life quietly alone at this family’s cottage on the lake. Grief being his only ally, Robbie was perfectly content with how he lived until Faith moved into the cottage next door. Now Faith had him questioning whether to keep grieving or to open his broken heart to let love in again.

Faith McMillan had no memory of her life before that day three years ago. The physical scars had faded but the emotional ones were still fresh and raw. Living rent-free seemed like a great way to finish her second book and give her the time to figure out her next move, but then she met the reclusive guy next door and everything changed.

To get past the broken parts, Robbie and Faith must figure out if they want to continue living their lives in solitude or take a chance on finding an ending together.

Meet MF Sullivan, author of The Hierophant's Daughter

Welcome to the book tour for The Hierophant's Daughter by M.F. Sullivan! Today she's letting us get to know her a little bit better, while also giving us some insight into her latest book. Please also enjoy an excerpt before you download your own copy. Follow the tour and leave plenty of questions and comments for the author as you continue to get to know her. And then be sure to enter the giveaway at the end!

Have you ever had an imaginary friend?
Of course! I give them whole worlds to ruin. Now that I’m into the occult (tarot was clearly an influence on, if nothing else, the structure of The Disgraced Martyr Trilogy—my cover artist, Nuno Moreira, did a wonderful job evoking tarot cards with the covers! The Hierophant’s Daughter is only the first beautiful example.
Do you have any phobias?
Heights, flying, needles—but I’m doing immunotherapy so I won’t be as allergic to my new black cat, Israel, so hopefully by the end I’ll be immune to phobia 3!
Do you listen to music when you're writing?
I must. I’ve talked in the past with another blogger about how important music is to me. The best thing a writer can do for themselves is to create a playlist and listen to it constantly, always envisioning the scenes of their story as inspiration calls. Listen to it so much that your knowledge of these images becomes routine, and when you sit down to write with this playlist, all your work will be second-nature to you.
Do you ever read your stories out loud?
Absolutely. Every third or fourth draft is like that—it helps me fix a lot of intolerable wording I wouldn’t have noticed otherwise.
Tell us about your main character and who inspired him/her.
General Dominia di Mephitoli, Former Governess of the United Front and the Bitch of Europa, is not just The Hierophant’s Daughter—she’s one of the most feared martyrs on the planet due to her prolific military career. That said, what I love about Dominia is her emotional complexity. While she thinks like a soldier, her political career—and her love of her dead wife, Cassandra di Mephitoli, whose death drives the plot of all three books even before the story has begun—has made her more emotional than that, and more attached to the human race than the rest of her cannibalistic martyr brethren. Part of her journey is about learning to honor those emotions, and learning to honor the horrors committed by the person that she was while acknowledging her ability to change into a new, better person.
I think one of the things I wanted to accomplish with this story was an LGBTQ protagonist, but I didn’t know any of that stuff about Dominia’s personal life going in. The most important thing for me was that the character’s problems not arise out of being gay—I respect YA coming-of-age tropes and the absolute bravery with which gay people must face the world to admit to being themselves, but I think the best way to create a world where LGBTQ people are normalized is to show them a world where they already are. So, when writing the plot, I basically wanted Dominia’s experience to be comparable in every way to that of a male sci-fi hero rescuing his wife. One of the ways I did that was by looking at one of the strongest people I’ve ever known, a young woman who’s a lesbian long after she’s a dynamic, reliable, intelligent and powerful human being. While she and Dominia are two very different people, I think I found that initial spark of the General’s motivations and self in the heart of my friend, Amber.

The Hierophant's Daughter

By 4042 CE, the Hierophant and his Church have risen to political dominance with his cannibalistic army of genetically modified humans: martyrs. In an era when mankind's intergenerational cold wars against their long-lived predators seem close to running hot, the Holy Family is poised on the verge of complete planetary control. It will take a miracle to save humanity from extinction.

It will also take a miracle to resurrect the wife of 331-year-old General Dominia di Mephitoli, who defects during martyr year 1997 AL in search of Lazarus, the one man rumored to bring life to the dead. With the Hierophant's Project Black Sun looming over her head, she has little choice but to believe this Lazarus is really all her new friends say he is--assuming he exists at all--and that these companions of hers are really able to help her. From the foulmouthed Japanese prostitute with a few secrets of her own to the outright sapient dog who seems to judge every move, they don't inspire a lot of confidence, but the General has to take the help she can get.

After all, Dominia is no ordinary martyr. She is THE HIEROPHANT'S DAUGHTER, and her Father won't let her switch sides without a fight. Not when she still has so much to learn.

The dystopic first entry of an epic cyberpunk trilogy, THE HIEROPHANT’S DAUGHTER is a horror/sci-fi adventure sure to delight and inspire adult readers of all stripes.

Read an excerpt:

Miki Soto

What couldn’t a person access from the Japanese Internet? The question inspired Dominia to get out of the bathtub for another look at the card. There was no address, whether web or physical, as there hadn’t been an address on the ad floating across that billboard; instead, when she studied the lotus embossed upon the card, the DIOX-I highlighted it as though it were a link. How fascinating, this augmented reality! After fixing the device’s settings back to manual control, she “clicked” on the link with an unsteady wink, and her right field of vision was covered by the floating window of a browser. Had she cochlear implants, she would have heard some sort of music, or even a voice accompanying the woman’s writhing in and out of the browser’s dark: less a whole person, and more a disembodied assortment of lips, fingers, lower backs, and thighs. At last, the vision disappeared to present her with the crimson words, “WELCOME TO THE RED MARKET.”

A button appeared: “Connect Your Halcyon for Age Verification.” The idea of giving the women of the international and highly loathed illegal organization any information might have stopped her in a simpler time, as it surely stopped 70 percent of potential Red Market customers—the ones able to access the site, anyway, inaccessible from Europa and the Front through traditional routes. That had been all the Hierophant could do to combat in any meaningful way the world’s oldest profession-cum-cult. Far trickier than hampering Internet access was controlling in-person transactions in gold or silver, or the off-brand cryptocurrency, Redcoin; and because there were almost no freelance prostitutes left in the world, catching a working girl was difficult.

Review of The Game Changer by Jaqueline Snowe

In my world, if a Jaqueline Snowe book comes up for grabs, I'm going to be at the top of the list to check it out! And I invite you to do the same. Take a sneak peek inside with an excerpt and then check out my review. Follow the tour and leave comments and questions for her along the way. And be sure to enter the giveaway at the end!

The Game Changer

Pretending to date your best friend is always a good idea…right? Wrong.

Greta Aske has a lot on her mind, and a string of bad dates has her giving up on men, at least for the time being. Her life contains a little too much drama, meaning she needs a break and to save money and get good grades. The perfect solution presents itself—pretend to date the campus playboy. That’ll keep the guys away for sure.

Aaron Hill is desperate to save his baseball career because, with his dad fighting cancer, he damn well knows he can’t ask for a single penny from his parents. Baseball is his past, present and future, so when a scandal threatens his chance in the MLB, he turns to his best friend for help. A fake relationship will keep him out of trouble. It’s perfect, really. Greta’s taking a break from dating and Aaron needs to focus on training.

Nothing could go wrong…as long as neither falls for the other. But when lines are crossed, what’s real and fake blurs and the two are forced to face their fears. Could Greta be the game changer Aaron needs?

Read an excerpt:
“You look great.” I pulled her down the stairs and opened the passenger door for her. “You always look good, G.”

“Aw, thanks, pookie.”

“Pookie?” I paused, giving her an irritated glare. “Hell, no.”

“I’m trying out nicknames. I would have a nickname if you were my boyfriend.” She raised her eyebrows, making me feel like a dumbass.

“You already call me A-a-ron and Ronnie. Those are nicknames.”

“No shit, Sherlock.” She chuckled. “Friend nicknames. I wouldn’t be calling my sex toy Ronnie. It is the least sexy name alive.”

I frowned. It was unsexy. “Fair enough. But Pookie isn’t it.”

“Then back to the drawing board. Stop stalling. Mama needs some pancakes.” She patted her belly and pushed me out of the way. She then shut the door in my face. I laughed. God, it felt good.

I slid into the driver seat and saw her studying me with one lip sucked into her mouth. “What?” “Just being honest here, but it literally looks like you have a stick shoved up your ass. No one is going to believe this is real.” She pursed her lips and shook her head. “Nope. Major stick in the ass face going on.”
“That isn’t a thing.” I started the car, but she put her hand on my leg. I looked at it, taking my time turning toward her again. “Ronnie, you need some fun in your life. Do you trust me?” “Yes,” I said without question. “Why?”

“Let me drive. I have an idea.” She stuck out her lip, pouting. Those damn brown eyes didn’t help either. I was pretty much ruining her life for six months so, sure, I could let her do whatever the she wanted.

**My thoughts**
I am always happy to see a new Jaqueline Snowe book, but I was even more excited to see that there was a second book in the Cleat Chasers series. I loved the first book, Challenge Accepted. We met Aaron and Greta in that one. Both of them are fierce and bull-headed and have so much baggage. And yet they are best friends and absolutely perfect for each other.

I know that they are just fictional characters, but the heat and chemistry between the two of them just about melted my Kindle while I was reading. Their playful banter and dedication to each other flowed so naturally through the pages. That takes talent to write! And it completely sucks you in. In fact, I was late getting back to work because I was reading this on my break and totally lost track of time.

Nothing beats the roller coaster ride of a best friends to lovers story, especially one where it starts off as a fake romance. They definitely push each other in ways that no one else can. I loved watching their relationship evolve. I loved this book as much as the first one and cannot wait until the next installment comes out!

About Jaqueline Snowe

Take On Me (Cursed Kin #3) by Kyla Riley

Take on Me

Vanessa Stafford had a life any woman would wish for… wealthy, pampered, with a beautiful home and marrying her father’s protégé. Her direction in life had always been planned for her by either her parents or her fiancé- but their ideas never allowed her be herself. A stolen moment of blissful happiness was like pulling a veil of disillusionment from her eyes. She knew deep down inside that it was time for her to break free of their grasp… but was she running straight into the arms of another man who would treat her the same?

Fiacha Cael spotted the stunning woman surrounded by others at the bar. Centuries had passed and his friends had slipped away over the years. He was now mourning the latest passing of a companion- and the pretty bachelorette at the bar was supposed to be celebrating. They were both surrounded by people but alone… so different, yet so alike. He felt a staggering depression swamping at his soul and saw the same expression in her eyes- driving need to comfort her. He had his own issues to sort through first… and the years had not been kind to his ironic phobia.

Could Fiacha understand the desire for independence that Vanessa had? Could she help a struggling vampire that fainted at the sight of blood? Both had their demons they fought against- yearning for more from this world… but would she be willing to take him on?

New Release! Brushed by Fate (Jersey Girls #3) by Laura DeLuca

New Release - Brushed by Fate by Laura DeLuca

Elisa Manna gave up on romance after a string of abusive relationships. She comes off as a brusque biker, but beneath her rough exterior she longs for something more.

Scott Heron is a Marine veteran trying to cope with the residual effects of war. His art is his only refuge from the dark memories that haunt him.

When fate nudges them together, they can't deny there's chemistry, but Elisa is terrified of commitment and Scott's physical and emotional scars make him abrasive and unpredictable. Can these two wounded warriors overcome their damaged past and paint a new future together?
