A reader recently asked whether I would write a crossover of characters in one book world interacting with those of another.
I’ll give you a hint. Seoul Spankings contains one such crossover, but it’s a secret. Please do NOT spoil the surprise for others if you already know!
I can’t wait to see the responses to Seoul Spankings and Living in Sin. I’ve heard a few preliminary responses, and thank you to Renee who has already posted a review for both books!
Indigo is under a misconception… she thinks she is on a job interview. Hyunkyung thinks Indi has come from America for a date and that she speaks Korean. The ensuing story is a lovely look into how differences can be overcome if everyone is willing to see through the eyes of another. I liked this story because the dominant partner had flaws and uncertainties. She had to ask for help from others to help her understand Indigo and she had to be flexible. This story has a ton of emotion ranging from humor to hurt and back again. The one thing I did not like about this story was Madam Eve’s response to Hyunkyung confusion. She could have cleared things up much earlier but then there would not be a story. Overall this is a great addition to the 1 Night Stand series.
Ah, poor headstrong Hyunkyung who won’t listen to Madame Eve. 🙂
Living in Sin:
Audra is tired of being the best kept secret in her girlfriend’s life. Can Ciara open up to her family about the person she loves? This is a sweet story about what is important in life. I liked this story because it brought out several key items people face in life; family relationships, trust, and love. Both characters were people the reader can identify with because life often isn’t pretty and perfect. I felt for Ciara because of her fear of rejection while at the same time I was drawn into Audra’s pain. The only thing I disliked about this story is that it ended to soon. I wanted to know more about their story.
Too short and wishing the story were longer? When I reviewed Terci in Chains for Kate Richards last week, quite a few of my readers took me to task for complaining about the length of her story. But…but…but… 😀
In other news, while I should be doing more promotion I am instead wanting to share with you a post I wrote yesterday. Let’s have a beautiful day.
What will you do today to make the world more beautiful?
Will you reach out to someone who needs a helping hand or a listening ear?
Will you take the time to nourish your heart/soul/body so you are better prepared to engage with the world?
Will you bite back your next complaint and instead think about your blessings?
Will you learn to let go of negativity and instead create peace?
Will you stop to blow bubbles, draw on the sidewalk with chalk, or play with stickers?
Will you focus on strife, conflict, and defensiveness?
Or will you focus on understanding, healing, and connection?
It’s a million choices in a day, and yet it’s also one basic choice.
Let’s make today beautiful.
