Book Blitz | Play it again + Sorteo

sábado, 8 de agosto de 2015

¡Buenos días! ♥

Tenía planeado publicar este Book Blitz ayer, pero ando sin internet (benditos datos de los móviles XD), así que se me van a juntar un poquito las cosillas :D Pero espero que os interese el libro, y que participéis en el sorteo ^^

Tïtulo: Play it again
Autora: Ashley Stoyanoff
Saga: PRG Investigations
Fecha de publicación: 4 de agosto de 2015
Géneros: New Adult, Romance
Ten days ago, someone threw a brick through my front window. Nine days ago, someone keyed my truck right in my driveway. Eight days ago, someone spray painted the words ‘stay away’ across my garage door. That one really pissed me off. The jerk didn’t even have the courtesy to tell me what the hell I need to stay away from.
Each day it’s something new, a new piece of my property vandalized, and I’ve had enough.
Wanting a security system, something with cameras so I can catch the vandal, I let my best friend hook me up with her cousin, a private investigator with the PRG Investigations team.
His name is Vance and I’ve secretly been in love with him for three years. He’s a badass, a little scary, incredibly hot, and he’s never showed an interest in me … until now.

Hace diez días alguien lanzó un ladrillo a través de la puerta de entrada de mi casa. Hace nueve días alguien puso mi camión en mi camino de entrada. Hace ocho días alguien escibió con spray en la puerta de mi garaje las palabras 'aléjate'. Esa realmente me irritó. El capullo ni siquiera tuvo la cortesía de decirme de qué demonios debo mantenerme alejada.
Cada día es algo nuevo, una nueva pieza de mi propiedad vandalizada; y ya he tenido suficiente.
Como quiero un sistema de segurdad, algo con cámaras para poder pillar al vándalo, dejo que mi mejor amiga me enrolle con su primo, un investigador privado del Equipo de Investigaciones PRG.
Su nombre es Vance y yo llevo tres años secretamente enamorada de él. Él es un malote, un poco aterrador, increíblemente sexy y nunca ha mostrado interés en mí... hasta ahora.

“You know,” Piper says, settling in, pulling her legs up under her. “I think this is exactly what I needed. I don’t remember ever feeling this relaxed. Not even in Mexico.”
I laugh. “We’ll have to make this a regular thing then.”
She looks at me, a tiny frown tugging her lips. “Do you do this a lot?”
“Do what?” I ask curiously.
“Make picnics and bring girls out here,” she asks, her voice hesitant, as though maybe she doesn’t actually want to hear the answer.
I stare at Piper.
She stares right back at me.
Jesus, she sounds … jealous. She looks it, too.
It’s a pretty look on her.
Always so damn pretty.
I grin at her, and then pull the lid off the cooler, reaching in and retrieving a beer.
“You’re the first,” I say, twisting off the cap and handing it to her. “Don’t bring too many people out here, actually.”
Her eyes widen. “What?”
“You’re the first,” I say again, reaching over to her, lightly trailing the back of my knuckles along the curve where her neck and shoulder meets. It’s a barely there touch, but the contact makes her shiver and blush. “And I’ve never made a picnic for anyone before you either.”
“I, uh, I …” her blush deepens and her voice wobbles. “Really?”
She’s nervous and she takes a long pull from her beer.
“Really,” I say, letting my hand fall away, wanting to put her at ease. I reach into the cooler, grabbing a beer for myself, twisting it open.
When I glance back at her, she’s staring at me, confused, as though I haven’t answered her question at all, so I decide to elaborate.
“This is my getaway, the place I come to clear my head. The guys come out with me every once in a while, but for the most part I keep the boat to myself. It’s … special to me, sacred even. I don’t bring just anyone out here.”
“So it’s a special place,” she reiterates, surprised. “Your special place.”
I take a pull from my beer. “Essentially, yeah.”
My response relaxes her, and she beams at me as though being here makes her special, too.
It does.
She is special to me.

Y esto es todo por hoy, intentaré publicar algo más esta semana, porque es la última que me queda antes de irme de vacaciones, pero hasta el miércoles tengo que tirar de internet del móvil... y no sé cuánto udrará XDD

Book Blitz | Silverwood + Sorteo

miércoles, 5 de agosto de 2015

¡Buenos días! ♥

¿Os apetece otro Book Blitz? Espero que sí jejeje Sé que este verano estoy publicando muchas entradas de esta sección, pero como ya os he comentado varias veces estoy muuuy liada con la mudanza este verano, entre otras cosas, y no tengo mucho tiempo que dedicar al blog ni a la lectura. Como estas entradas las puedo programar periódicamente, puedo aprovechar los ratitos libros y de relax para escribirlas :D

Título: Silverwood
Autora: Betsy Streeter
Saga: Silverwood #1
Fecha de publicación: 15 de marzo de 2015
Géneros: Ciencia ficción, Juvenil
A story of finding where you belong, even if it involves time travel, shape shifting, and hacking.
Helen Silverwood, fourteen, is sick of life on the run with her mom and her younger brother. Nothing makes sense. She doesn’t understand why she has recurring dreams of shape-shifting creatures, why her mother is always disappearing, and how her brother can draw things that haven’t happened yet. Most of all, Helen longs to know what happened to her dad—is he imprisoned, a fugitive, or gone forever?
When someone blows up the apartment where Helen lives, the stories of the ancient Silverwood clan—and her role in it—begin to unravel. All Helen wants is to feel like there’s someplace she belongs—but getting there will prove very, very complicated.

Una hisotria sobre encontrar el lugar al que pertecences, incluso si incluye viajes en el tiempo, cambiaformas y hackear.
Helen Silverwood, de catorce años, está cansada de vivir huyendo junto a su madre y su hermano pequeño. No entiende por qué tiene sueños recurrentes sobre criaturas cambiaformas, por qué su madre desaparece cada dos por tres, y cómo es que su hermano puede dibujar cosas que aún no han ocurrido. Y por encima de todo, Helen quiere saber qué ocurrió con su padre... ¿está preso, es un fugitivo o se ha marchado para siempre?
Cuando alguien hace explotar el apartamente en el que vive Helen, las historias del antiguo clan Silverwood (y su papel en él) comienzan a desvelarse. Todo lo que quiere Helen es sentir que hay un lugar al que pertenece, pero llegar a él será muy pero que muy difícil.

Extracto
A young couple stumbles out the back door of a nightclub into a narrow alleyway that would look a whole lot worse in the daytime. Distant streetlights reveal a hint of the garbage strewn around, and the shadows mask the dilapidated state of the surrounding buildings. The door itself sits in the mouth of a giant, cartoonlike face spray painted on the wall.
Deafening music and red-orange light shoots out the door while it is open, bouncing off the alley walls, and muffles again as the door closes to just a crack. There is no knob on the outside of the door; someone has wedged in a piece of wood to hold it open.
The couple start out laughing and joking, leaning on each other – their shape is all skinny jeans and mohawks mixed with the glint of jewelry – but shortly their voices turn more argumentative. Maybe someone committed an offense, perhaps there's a breakup in progress. Soon the young woman breaks away from her date, pries open the door, and storms back into the club. Loud music and lights again, muffled and dark again. The young man leans his back against the wall, his arms crossed in anger. He needs a minute to collect himself.
A lone figure comes down the alley. Unusually tall, dressed in a dark coat, crushing garbage under its motorcycle boots. Lit from behind by the street lights, it resembles a shadow that has come loose from the wall. The young man is too distracted with replaying the conversation of a few minutes ago in his head, trying to figure out what he said wrong, to notice that the figure has come within a few feet of him.
“You know you really ought not to be out here at this late hour,” the figure says.
The young man jumps, then regains himself. “Yeah, whatever.” Who is this guy telling him what to do. The only people who go out back by themselves are the ones who want to be, by themselves.
Before the young man can add anything – like a string of expletives – a needle-like protrusion shoots out from the figure's forearm and directly into the young man's abdomen.
The young man freezes, stares straight ahead, then looks his assailant in the face. It's a pale face, the face of a Tromindox that has not fed in some time. The victim tries to push off from the wall, but the venom deadens his arms and legs. He slides downward into a sitting position. His skin turns black, his spiky hair becomes a mass of tentacles. Soon there is nothing left of him but a terrified pair of eyes in a puddle of writhing black.
The Tromindox reels in its prey, like a glob of oil pulling in a wayward drop. Satisfied that it has the upper hand, the creature takes on a more humanlike form, turns and shuffles away. It is already buzzing with energy from all of these new thoughts.
The door scrapes open again, the bright light temporarily blocked by a fat man in an undershirt heaving a huge bag of garbage into the trash bin. He takes a quick look up and down the alley, wipes his hands on his pants, and goes back in.
Later, the young woman will come back out and see that her date has left. She will take this as a sign that they have broken up, and will not call him for a week. It won’t be until
he has missed several days at work that someone will unlock his untouched apartment, see that no one has been there, and file a missing persons report.

Book Blitz | Caught in us + Sorteo

lunes, 3 de agosto de 2015

¡Buenos días! ♥

Hoy os traigo un libro que, aunque pertenece a una saga, no estoy segura de si se puede leer de forma independiente. Entonces... ¿por qué os traigo este Book Blitz? Si estáis atentos a esta sección, sabréis que solo escojo libros independientes, o comienzos de saga (y continuaciones de las mismas si se publica el siguiente libro y la autora decide volver a celebrar este evento), la cuestión es que de esta autora no es la primera vez que hago un Book Blitz. No fue sobre uno de los libros de esta saga, pero una compañera bloguera, Babel de Torre de Babel, hizo un evento en el que gané el primer libro de esta saga. No lo he leído aún (desgraciadamente aún no he tenido tiempo D: y eso que tiene una pinta tremenda), pero cuando vi que era un libro de la misma saga, decidí aprovechar y darle algo de publi :)

Tïtulo: Caught in us
Autora: Layla Hagen
Saga: Lost #3
Fecha de publicación: 3 de agosto de 2015 (¡hoy!)
Géneros: Contemporáneo, New Adult, Romance
Dani Cohen knows Damon is trouble the second he walks in during senior year. He has bad boy written all over him... from his arrogant smirk to his perfectly toned abs. He is arrogant, intense, rebellious.
Dani has her future all planned out. She’s not the type to fall for a bad boy, no matter how panty-melting his grin is or how shamelessly he flirts. But something about Damon draws her in, awakening a desire she’s never felt. Slowly, she uncovers the secrets Damon hides: underneath his arrogance lies a tortured soul, his flirting smile masks despair.
Damon arrives in Dani’s life against his will. Carrying the scars of a dark past and facing an uncertain future, he knows he should stay away from her, but can’t. Her innocence consumes him, as does the desire to indulge in the passion igniting deep inside her.
An all-consuming bond blooms into a reckless love. But when mistakes from the past threaten their already fragile future, can their love survive?

Dani Cohen sabe que Damon es problemas en el primer segundo en el que entra en clase durante el último año de instituto. Tiene las palabras "chico malo" tatuadas en la frente... desde su sonrisa arrogante hasta sus perfectamente musculados abdominales. Él es arrogante, intenso, rebelde.
Dani tiene todo su futuro planeado. No es la clase de chica que se enamora del chico malo, no importa qué tan sexy sea su sonrisa o lo descaradamente que flirtee con ella. Pero algo en Damon la atrae, despertando un deseo que nunca ha sentido. Poco a poco ella va descubriendo los secretos que Damon oculta: bajo su arrogancia se esconde un alma torturada; su sonrisa ligona enmascara su desesperación.
Damon aterriza en la vida de Dani contra su voluntado. Lleva consigo las cicatrices de un oscuro pasado y se enfrente a un futuro incierto; él sabe que debería mantenerse alejado de ella, pero no puede. Su inocencia lo consume, de la misma forma que lo hace el deseo de satisfacerse con la pasión que bulle en su interior.
Se crea un fuerte lazo entre ambos que acabará convirtiéndose en un arriesgado amor. ¿Pero podrá su amor sobrevivir cuando errores del pasado amenazan su ya de por sí frágil futuro?

Whoa. Who was that girl?
The party was full of women, polished and perfect and snooty in how they appraised me, like they were looking for something, and I wasn't it.
But not this one.
She seemed nervous, a little lost. Her green dress was as fancy as anyone's here, but that hair. I didn't know anybody with pink dreadlocks. She couldn't be an actress expecting to get many parts, unless the hair was for something she was doing right now.
It was wicked gorgeous. I'd never seen anyone like her.
The tables were packed, and clusters of animated people talked with exaggerated gestures, like they were game show hosts. I could see from the body language that everybody had too much to say and not enough patience to hear anybody else.
I looked her way a couple more times, trying not to stare.
The guitar I was holding during the band's break felt good. I wanted to crank out a solo, something dark and brooding, but this wasn't my gig. I set it back in its stand and couldn't help myself, but took one more look into the crowd.
My heart revved up when I saw she was watching me. Then she was heading this way.
♥ Sorteo 1 ♥
♥ Sorteo 2 ♥

Esta saga no tiene mala pinta. Puntualizo que el (*) lo he puesto porque aunque sea una saga, los libros son de lectura independiente. Eso ponía en la ficha al menos. Imagino que son personajes diferentes en cada libro, con una cosa en común.

Me ha hecho gracia de la información que me han dado la información de la autora, porque más que de su trayectoria como escritora nos habla de su labor en el tema de los abortos. No me parece mal, pero me ha parecido curioso que apenas se hable de sus otros libros :D

Book Blitz | The billionarie's deal + Sorteo

domingo, 19 de julio de 2015

¡Buenos días! ♥

Hoy os traigo otro libro interesante, y sí, por supuesto también viene con un mini-sorteo ;) Sobre este libro... tengo sentimientos encontrados, así que os dejo la info, el extracto y el sorteo y más abajo os explico por qué :D

Tïtulo: The Billionaire’s Deal
Autora: Crystal Kaswell
Saga: The Billionaire's Deal #1
Fecha de publicación: 17 de julio de 2015
Géneros: New Adult, Romántica
Kat Wilder is screwed. No parents to take care of her. No money to pay the mortgage for the apartment she shares with her little sister. No chance at a future. She doesn’t even have time to daydream about her passions. She barely gets by waiting tables, getting treated like crap by the wealthy people who think she’s nothing.
Then she runs straight into billionaire tech CEO Blake Sterling.
Aloof, distant, and utterly in control, Blake is impossible to read. He wants Kat to play the role of his girlfriend and he’s more than willing to dig her out of debt. His intentions are good. According to him.
They need to convince everyone they’re madly, deeply in love. Their entire relationship would be a lie. And a big one. The one true thing—the two of them alone, together—that part would be amazing.
It would be Blake’s way. Blake’s terms. Blake utterly in control, inside and outside the bedroom.
There’s no way she can agree. There’s no way she can refuse.

Kat Wilder está jodida. Sin padres que la cuiden. Sin dinero para pagar la hipoteca del apartamento que comparte con su heramana pequeña. Sin opciones para el futuro. Sin siquiera tiene tiempo para fantasear con sus pasiones. Ella apenas sobrevive sirviendo mesas y siendo tratada como la mierda por gente rica que piensa que ella no es nada.
Entonces se encuentra con el billonario CEO Blake Sterling.
Solitario, distante y maniático del control, Blake es imposible de leer. Él quiere que Kat finga ser su novia, y está más que dispuesto a sacarla de sus deudas. Sus intenciones son buenas. Según él.
Tienen que convencer a todos que están loca y profundamente enamorados. Su relación sería una mentira. Y una muy grande. Los dos juntos, solos... esa parte sería verdaderamente increíble.
Se haría de la forma en la que Blake quisiera. Serían las reglas de Blake. Blake siempre en control, fuera y dentro del dormitorio.
No hay forma de que ella acepte. No hay forma de que ella se niegue.

He brushes my hair from my shoulder. "When you're with me, Kat, I'll take care of everything."
"Coffee?"
He nods.
"Food?"
He nods.
"What else?"
He runs his hands over my bra. "Clothing."
"Oh, that stands for clothing, does it?"
He nods.
His lips close over mine. It's magic. Like one of those scenes in a movie where fireworks explode over a pretty pink castle. Blake's lips are soft and sweet, but there's something so commanding about his kiss.
I run my hands through his hair. It's short, brown, and some perfect mix of billionaire CEO and low-key programmer. Soft. His lips and hair are so soft but everything else about him is so hard.
He slips his fingertips into my bra and brushes them lightly over my nipples.
My body shakes with pleasure. It's been so long since anyone has given my breasts any attention, and he moves with a perfect finesse.
I sigh into his mouth, unwrapping my legs so I can slide into his lap. The details of this deal fade into the back of my mind. They seem so much less important than my body against his.
His tongue explores every nook of my mouth. I dig my hands into the soft fabric of his shirt until I can feel the hard contours of his muscles.
Desire overwhelms me. I've never wanted anyone this much. I never even knew you could want someone this much.
He tugs at my dress, but he's pulling it back on, back over my shoulder.
My head is spinning. He's not... but he... he can't stop now, not when I feel so damn exhilarated.
"It's late," he says.
I blink a few times, but he's still staring at me with that same impenetrable look on his face. "What else?" I ask. "Besides food, coffee, and clothing?"
"You'll come when you're with me, Kat. I'll make sure of it."
"But not tonight?"
"Not yet." He shifts off the couch. "I'll walk you out."
"I can walk myself."
I reach for my coat, but Blake is already holding it. He helps me into it.
His fingers brush against my neck, soft and light. Heat floods my body. It's everywhere. I can barely stand it. But not tonight, apparently. Not yet.
Patience is supposed to be a virtue. I've never hated virtue so damn much.
I squeeze my purse tightly. I'm about to sign my freedom away in exchange for my sister's future. For our future. A little sexual frustration is the least of my concerns.
Blake walks me to the elevator. He waves his key card in front of the door. "I'll have one made for you."
"Sure."
"Jordan will take you home. If you need anything, call."
"I'll be fine."
His stare is intense. "Anything."
That same flutter collects inside me. He can't mean sex. He just sent me out of his office with my dress falling off my shoulders.
I clear my throat. Blake is a mystery I'm not going to solve. My best hope is enjoying the ride.
I step into the elevator. "Goodnight."
He nods.
The doors slide closed, and I finally exhale. Almost home. It's a quick ride to the ground floor. As promised, the limo is waiting out front.
Inside, I check the mini bar for something that will ease the tension. But this isn't the kind of problem a drink solves.
The door closes. Jordan speaks into his earpiece. "Understood, sir." The partition rolls up with a quiet whir.
I'm as good as alone.
My phone rings in my purse. Blake. What the hell?
I answer. "Hello."
"I said anything, Kat."
"I was there."
"You want something."
My heart races. Of course I want something. He's not an idiot. "Yes."
"So ask for it."
Heat rushes through me, collecting between my legs. "I..."
"Take off your underwear. I want to hear you come."

¿Habéis leído la sinopsis? ¿Qué os ha parecido? A mí al principio me llamó la atención, peor según iba traduciéndola para hacer esta entrada... No sé, como que cambié un poco de opinión jajaja No digo que no tenga buena pinta, podría ser una lectura entretenida, pero... eso de los chicos ultra-dominantes y las chicas que oh-Dios-mío no-pueden-hacer-nada-para-resistirse-aunque-saben-que-deberían ya cansa XDD

Por lo general soy una amante de los clichés: cuando un tipo de historia me gusta, me gusta reencontrarlo en historias diferentes en las que sus autoras lo desarrollan de forma totalmente distinta. Pero este tema... será que en España se está explotando demasiado tras el horroroso boom de 50 sombras... pero no me va.

No quito el atractivo literario a los hombres "dominantes", creo que hay autoras que saben describir a estos tipos de personajes sin quitarles encanto y haciéndolos, hasta cierto punto, adorables; de la misma manera que creo que hay autoras que lo intentan y no les sale bien (a muchas, a decir verdad, y creo que esta es la razón de que a tanta gente no le guste este tipo de personajes). Pero ser algo "dominante" y llegar al punto de que ella sea sumisa... no, eso es totalmente diferente. Y este tipo de protagonistas femeninas que no pueden decir NO me han agotado ya XD

¿Qué pensáis vosotros?

Book Blitz | At the heart of the deep + Sorteo

viernes, 17 de julio de 2015

¡Buenos días! ♥

Hoy os traigo un libro con una portada tremendísima :D Más que un libro es una novella, que pertenece a una saga de la que ya os hablé en un anterior Book Blitz de este mes: Falling in Deep Collection. Por si acaso lo vuelvo a explicar brevemente en un asterisco al final de la entrada :D

Tïtulo: At the Heart of the Deep
Autora: Carrie L. Wells
Saga: Falling in Deep Collection, Novella (*)
Fecha de publicación: 23 de junio del 2015
Géneros: New Adult, Paranormal, Romántica
Oceanographer Luke McAllister races to figure out why the ocean depth is changing off Florida’s Treasure Coast. But before he and his crew discover what’s transforming the deep, he stumbles upon an even greater mystery. Leagues below the waves, he swear he sees…a mermaid?

Anya isn’t allowed to get close to humans. But when a golden-haired researcher gets too close to her island, she can’t afford to stay away.

Together, this unlikely pair will seek to discover what’s causing shifts in ocean floor. While their new alliance is forbidden, Anya will risk everything to save her beloved ocean. The only problem is, she’s not sure what’s really luring her in, her love of the sea or the tempest Luke has stirred in her heart. Either way, Anya knows that the dangers facing the sea are nothing compared to what will happen to her when her father learns she’s broken the merfolks’ most sacred law.

Can Anya and Luke discover what lurks at the heart of the deep before it’s too late?

El oceanógrafo Luke McAllister se apresura a descubrir por qué las profundiades oceánicas están cambiando la Costa del Tesoro de Florida. Pero antes de que él y su equipo descubran qué está cambiando las profundiades, se encuentra frente a un aún mayor misterio. A leguas bajo las ojas juraría que ve... ¿una sirena?

Anya no tiene permiso para acercarse a los humanos. Pero cuando un rubio científico se acerca demasiado a su isla, no puede perimitirse mantenerse alejada.

Juntos, esta extraña pareja intentará descubrir qué está causando los cambios en el suelo oceánico. Aunque su nueva alianza está prohibida, Anya lo arriesgará todo para salvar su amado océano. El único problema es que no está segura de lo que la impulsa a ayudar, su amor por el mar o la tormenta que Luke ha despertado en su corazón. De cualquier forma, Anya sabe que los peligros del mar no son nada en comparación con lo que ocurrirá cuando su padre descubra que ha roto la ley más sagrada de su gente.

¿Podrían Anya y Luke descubrir qué está ocurriendo antes de que sea demasiado tarde?

Extracto
I caught sight of his cut, thought a moment, and swam away. He floated there, treading water and wondering what would happen next. At that point, his face conveyed the pain in his side. I watched an intense sting replace what I knew of the original burning sensation of a coral abrasion, and the open wound spilled into the ocean at a steady pace.

Conceivably, I had underestimated the severity of the cut. Maybe the coral cut deeper than I thought. The blood clouded the water surrounding him, and now the problem remained of how to take the injured man across the reef without doing further damage. We still needed to cross at least two miles and climb a rocky beach. Or did we?

Before he had time to contemplate any other option, I approached him from below. I swam up to him slowly, and he did nothing. He didn’t dive to meet me or attempt to swim away. He hung vertically in the water, waiting.

He must have felt me before he could clearly see me. The water shifted as I neared, my physicality changing the flow of the ocean around me. He knew I was there, but he didn’t dive below. Was he afraid? Too hurt to move? Instead, he stayed still, moving as little as possible, allowing my approach, and keeping the blood loss at a minimum.

I moved below him and then up, along his body, until my head emerged from the inky blue water and he stared into my eyes. He let out a fast gasp and quickly sank below the surface.

(*) Anteriormente ya os hablé de la "saga" Falling in the Deep Collection, pero por si acaso os vuelvo a comentar que es una colección de libros INDEPENDIENTES (y también de alguna novella) de diversas autoras que escriben sobre sirenas y tritones :D

Como ya os comenté con el primer libro de esta colección que os enseñé, adoro las historias de sirenas y tritones. Y no porque haya leído muchas, porque las que he leído las puedo contar con los dedos de una mano, pero hay muchos con esta temática que me gustaría leer. El problema es que en español no se publican apenas, y que en inglés hay tanto libro que quiero comprar que al final acabo comprando un poco de todo y no solo de esta temática :)

¡Nos leemos! ♥

When Eden Foster’s parents tell her they’re moving from Chicago to the Illinois suburb of Aledo, Eden is crushed. That is, until she runs crying to her jock boyfriend, who she finds on top of her so-called best friend. Moving’s not looking so bad anymore.

Now a senior at Mercer County High, Eden is ready to re-enter the dating scene. Still burned over the betrayal of her ex, she’s looking for someone sweet and innocent. With the help of her two new friends, Zoe and Amy, Eden makes a list of what she’s looking for: an eager virgin, ready for training—and no jocks.

Eden thinks she’s found what she’s looking for in Logan Black, a shy and geeky classmate. But why are Zoe and Amy convinced that the answer to her search is a party game…with kissing?

Eden better get ready, because she’s about to play the Single Game.

Cuando los padres de Eden Foster le dicen que se van a mudar de Chicago a Aledo, un suburbio de Illinois, queda destrozada. Eso sí, solo hasta que corre llorando donde su novio deportista y se lo encunetra encima de su supuesta mejor amiga. Ahora mudarse no tiene tan mala pinta.

Ahora es estudiante de último año en el instituto Mercer Country y Eden está preparada para entrar de nuevo en el panorama de las citas. Como todavía está ardiendo por la traición de su ex, busca a alguien dulce e inocente. Con la ayuda de sus dos nuevas amigas, Zoe y Amy, Eden hace una lista de lo que está buscando: un dispuesto vírgen, listo para el entrenamiento... y nada de deportistas.

Eden cree que ha encontrado lo que está buscando en Logan Black, un tímido y algo friki compañero de clase. ¿Pero por qué creen Zoe y Amy que la respuesta a su búsqueda está en el juego de una fiesta... con besos?

Lo mejor será que Eden esté preparada, porque está a punto de jugar al Single Game (Juego de Solteros).

Amanda Black was born and raised in the Midwest, where she still lives with her husband and spoiled-rotten dogs. She earned a bachelor's degree in Studio Art before deciding that she actually needed to pay some bills, which is when she took a position as an ophthalmic technician.

For the past few years she's been a closet romance writer in her spare time and would love nothing more than to make it a full-time career. When she's not writing her next steamy love scene, her interests include reading, sketching, and annihilating her friends and family in movie trivia.

Amanda Black nació y creció en el Medio Oeste, donde aún vive con su marido y sus mimados perros. Se sacó la carrera de Estudio del Arte, porque decidió que necesitaba pagar algunas facturas, y fue aquí cuando consiguió un puesto como técnico de oftálmica.

En los últimos años ha sido escritora de romance en sus tiempos libres, y lo que más le gustaría es poder convertirlo en su trabajo a tiempo completo. Cuando no está excribiendo su próxima ardiente escena de amor, sus interesen incluyen leer, dibujar y aniquilar a su familia y amigos en juegos de cine.

Interview
What elements of your own love life influenced this story?

More than I should probably admit! My husband and I were both very young when we started dating. Not quite as young as Eden and Logan, but there were still plenty of bets that we would never make it.
There is less angst in The Single Game than in your previous books (The Apartment and The Blank Canvas), can you talk about that a little bit more? 
That was most definitely on purpose. By the time I finished writing those books I was absolutely drained from all of the emotions I had dredged up, both personal and fictional. Once I started getting the idea for The Single Game I saw that as an opportunity to just sit back and have some fun. It sounds funny to say that I was avoiding melodrama while also writing about teenagers, but I just wanted it to feel genuine, sweet and loving. Life has enough angst. I wanted to give me and my readers a small break.

What motivated you to write a New Adult Erotica?

I was already used to writing erotic romance after the last two books, but I was just really drawn to the story that was growing in my mind of these two teenagers on the verge of graduating high school. It’s such a big milestone in everyone’s life and I wanted to see how this couple would deal with a budding relationship in the middle of all of that.
I was so intrigued by the characters in this story. Logan is a shy, geeky, male virgin whereas Eden is a beautiful, confident, and sexually active HS senior girl. What made you reverse these typically male/female roles? 
I’m always up for a good role reversal! Honestly, some details of their relationship were drawn right from my own and other people I’ve known. There were plenty of girls who got burned by dating a player and they were much happier once they gave the shy guy another look. Plus, how many of us have said at one time, “I’d love to find a guy with no relationship baggage who I could teach exactly what I like.” Eden takes that idea and runs with it, exploring and discovering brand new things that she and Logan both like.

What character in The Single Game is most like you and why? 
Definitely Eden. I had the proverbial burning by the ex. Not quite as dramatic as hers was, but that scene came from my ugliest high school memories. I wasn’t back in the saddle until early college but by then I knew what a treasure I had when I found my own shy guy.
♥ Sorteo ♥

(*) Antes de nada, creo conveniente aclarar el punto de la "saga". Por lo que he leído, los dos primeros libros de esta serie, The Apartment y The Blank Canvas, son continuaciones, es decir, un primer y segundo libro como tales. Pero al parecer este tercer libro es "independiente". No me he leído los anteriores, así que no os puedo decir cuál es el punto común entre los tres libros, pero lo que está claro es que no es necesario leer los anteriores para entender este. Tendrán algún punto en común como el colegio al que van los personajes, algún secundario que aparezca en los tres, que en este aparezca algún protagonista de los anteriores o alguna cosa de esas.

Aclarado ya el tema de si es una saga o no... Este libro tiene pinta de una lectura entretenida, como la mayoría de New Adult, pero tampoco tiene pinta de que vaya a ser memorable. Uno más entre tantos. Aunque quien sabe, algunas premisas de lo más sencillas son las que a la larga más te marcan o más recuerdas, por una cosa u otra.

De cualquier forma, el sorteo no es para un ejemplar de este libro, sino para una tarjeta de regalo en Amazon (que obviamente podéis gastar como queráis XD) y los dos primeros libros de la saga en digital. No os resistáis y participad ^^

¡Nos leemos! ♥
