Hi everyone! ✨

I’m back with a review of Roberta Blablanski’s new release (HAPPY NEW RELEASE!) ADDICTION!

 ✨ 5/5 Stars ✨

46815876._sy475_

Another sparkling success for Roberta and her latest bittersweet second chance love story.

I greatly enjoyed Owen and Dex’s heart breaking journey. They had it rough but deserved each other so much (IMO). Right from the start, they have great chemistry and I was rooting for them to get find their way back into each other’s hearts and lives.

THAT ENDING!!! I MELTED!!!! T___T

The writing was beautiful and flowed effortlessly, the characters vivid, and the story gripping –– sucked me right it from the start.

Highly recommended!

 

Also a reminder that I’ll be joining my friend Roberta’s release party over on her Facebook Group Roberta’s Ramblings today, August 16th, 15:00 EST, to celebrate her new book.

Stop by for some fun with fellow romance authors for chats, contests and giveaways!

Addiction by Roberta Blablanski

Addiction can destroy your life. But if you destroy addiction, can you get your life back?

At twenty-eight, Owen Fredrikson is homeless, unemployed, and grappling with drug addiction. Before he let drugs take over his life, he had a pretty sweet job working the front desk of a fancy hotel, his boss was his best friend, and he had a loving fiancé.

After three years together, thirty-three-year-old middle school math teacher Dex Atterbury could no longer ignore Owen’s demons. Dex made the tough decision to part ways, leaving Owen destitute and Dex heartbroken.

When tragedy befalls Owen and Dex is called to his side, Owen has some tough decisions to make. Both men must determine how far they are willing to go to rebuild the life they once shared.

Can Owen conquer his addiction while facing his demons? And can Dex open his heart and trust Owen again?

Content Warnings:
Depictions of drug addiction, drug use and abuse, and drug withdrawal
Scenes of violence

But it now! 

 

About the author:

Roberta Blablanski hails from The Big Easy: New Orleans, Louisiana. She draws inspiration from her colorful hometown and her former life as a college radio DJ. When she isn’t writing, she spends her days searching for the world’s best Bloody Mary and avoiding people she went to high school with. Her normal habitat is curled up in bed with a good book and a cup of coffee.

Roberta developed a love of books at an early age, spending her summers at the library. Years later, after watching the American version of the television show Queer as Folk, she began searching for books featuring queer characters finding love. Most recently, she began writing queer love stories of her own, drawing from her own personal experiences and creating characters and story lines as vibrant as her ever-changing hair color.

All or Nothing – COVER & BLURB REVEAL!

Hello everyone!

It’s been quiet around here, I know! Some of you might have seen me mention a new book I’ve been working on over on Twitter and Facebook. Great news––the book is finished! And *drum roll* it has a title, cover and blurb!

LOOK AT THIS BEAUTIFUL COVER! 😍

AllorNothing-f500

When shy sociology student Remington Belotti finds himself stuck on campus two days before Christmas, the handsome and untouchable Carter McCormack unexpectedly offers him a ride home. Having secretly longed for Carter’s attention for over a year, his sudden interest, along with the kind gesture, gives Remmy hope that his attraction will be returned, after all.

On their way to Remy’s hometown, they encounter bad weather and are overtaken by an unforgiving blizzard, leaving them stranded along the highway. The sparks of attraction fly in the safety of Carter’s car, and the two young men share heartfelt confessions along with body heat and gummy bears. When they check into a motel for the night, their electrifying bond deepens, and their shared time might just bring Remmy and Carter the Christmas surprise they could only have dreamed of.

Expected publish date is Oct 7th.

Stay tuned for more infos and giveaways! 

I’ve previously released a holiday themed novella with NineStar Press!
