EXCERPT

The melting of the snow brought about a mixture of emotions. Realizations I didn’t want to admit to. Awareness that dawned on me brighter than the noon sun back home in South Florida. Resistance to what was happening around me.

I’ve never been happier to be back at work, doing what I know and keeping my mind busy with tempos.

After the second night of being snowed in, Max left and prepared for a short trip to Germany. His words. Probably meant to ease me and inform me he’ll be back soon.

In my own silence, I analyze my world. I analyze my truths and my deceptions. I was living a life I was content with until recently. I was surviving without the constant memories drowning my mind. The insecurities I buried deep within not making an appearance.

Until now.

Now everything has resurfaced. Now every truth is exposed in the front of my mind, a cursing memory haunting me in case I had forgotten where I came from and who I was.

A rag-doll with loose threads barely keeping her together. Unsown by a seam ripper who fed off of her pain.

Anyway. Not having Max around has given me space. Space to think. Space to breathe. Space to hide. The glass shelters me despite its transparent state. The walls in my small room protect me. The men that walk in surrender to me. All of this makes for the perfect escape. An escape I am craving and dreading at the same time. My analytical self knows this is what has helped me move forward in life. My foolish self wants to tear at the belief system I’ve created to fall victim to fairy tales with a Prince Charming and a Sleeping Beauty waiting to be awoken by a kiss.

Kisses don’t heal. Princes don’t wake you up from nightmares. You are responsible for your own living and the only one who can break the bonds of the past.

REVIEW

Red Lights, Black Hearts is a novel beyond this world!

The words that brings out the emotions of the characters’…

The sentences that tells the tragedy and stories of Samantha and those around her…

Fabiola Francisco is an author whose writing will pull you in so fast and deep…you would not be able to put down her novels once you started reading it!

In her latest novel, she has written more than just the sweetest romance between her characters, but also something so beautifully tragic, one would feel so much sadness and hopefulness for the characters!

The way Miss Fabiola writes in Red Lights, Black Hearts, on Samantha’s feelings, it was almost as if I was her. It felt as if I was Sam, and I was feeling her grey emotions, her detachment to this world. Everything inside this novel feels so real.

Samantha is every man’s dream, sexy, cold and a person who needs control. Yet, the one thing she promised herself she would never do again happened, and that broke the walls she had been building when she arrived in Amsterdam.

Sam truly is one of the most complex, yet, she is also one of the simplest character I have read in any novels. It physically hurts me to see Sam’s inner battle.

Something about the writing in this novel feels so real it hurts.

This novel is a beautiful surprise, and I love the endings in most of the novels I read, but for Red Lights, Black Hearts?

It. Was. Perfect.

This novel has the most unexpected, and perfect ending of one finding herself with some help from a person who broke her facade, releasing herself, and healing from her past.

This novel is highly recommended for everyone! Red Lights, Black Hearts is truly a very unique novel!

EXCERPT

We all walk in the shadow of something. A shadow of expectancy, of pride, of ego, of memories. For some that shadow is the companion to the lonely. My shadow has been my company for so many years. It has pushed me to fight and win. It has talked me into doing things and talked me out of them. Tonight, my shadow dances along with me with the peaked interest of my visitors. One in particular. My shadow seeks his across the snow-covered street, but it’s nowhere to be found.

I have come to terms that Max and I are connected. I have come to accept he is bound to my life for now. What I have not come to realize is my need to see him. I search for him among the audience in awe of the window of pleasure and pain. I shut him out with the thick scarlet curtains that adorn my palace, but seek him in the darkness of the night. The moon traveling in search for the light of the sun to give it purpose.

For a long time I haven’t had a purpose besides survive in a world that I know how to control. I use what I have to move and seduce, destruct the power of some for a little while. Make them beg for something only I can give them. It may seem twisted to some, but it gives me a high to know I can control them. It pushes me forward knowing I have the upper hand. The other option is unacceptable.

Now, my mind is starting to rouse with new purpose. I’m familiar with the symptoms, but I can’t diagnose the disease. This purpose can give new meaning or destroy the little I have left. It could shatter that glass window, or keep me enclosed forever.

Blog Tour: Sweet on Wilde by Fabiola Francisco (Excerpt + Review + Teasers!)

Hey bookies! Welcome to the first day and my stop on the blog tour for Sweet on Wilde!

Guess who’s the author?!

FABIOLA FRANCISCO! One of my favourite and go-to author for contemporary romance!

Sweet on Wilde Cover

Title: Sweet on Wilde
Author: Fabiola Francisco
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 7th 2015
Purchase LinksAmazon (US) | Amazon (UK) | Amazon (AU)Amazon (CA)

Eight months ago, I made a deal with my best friend. This wasn’t your typical pact. No, we had to take a different route. The deal was that if we were still single by fall, we would join online dating. Yes…now I am that girl. Just me, though, because she met a guy and saved herself from the awkwardness of dating people you meet via the Internet.

Cheesy pick up lines.

Inappropriate messages.

Disaster dates.

I don’t want to be “Savannah, profile 8713,” but a pinky promise is a promise you keep. What I wasn’t counting on was meeting a guy at the local bar.

So what happens when you decide to open yourself up to new opportunities? You might just cross paths with someone who makes you believe in love. Parker Wilde brought out the best in me and understood the worst, but when an amazing opportunity presents itself and our lives take different directions, is being sweet on Wilde enough for us?

Goodreads

EXCERPT

The music blasting from the speakers draws me, and I move my body to the beat as I sit by the bar facing the dance floor. Although Southern is a more laid back bar, it has a small area designated for the patrons that want to dance without feeling like they’re disrupting the flow of the service.

“Let’s go dance.” Parker is eyeing me mischievously, obviously enjoying as I move to the music. The stress he came in with has now totally eased out of his body. He is back to his relaxed, confident self.

“It’s okay. I’m fine here, not much of a dancer,” I lie because the thought of dancing with him throws me off.

“Really? You haven’t stopped moving. Come on,” he reaches his hand out to me. Taking a moment to watch him as he stands before me with his hand out, I can appreciate how good-looking he is. I take his hand and let him lead me towards the small crowd dancing in the center of the venue.

“Sweet Home Alabama” begins to come through the speakers, and as soon as everyone hears the familiar introduction, they get in position, ready to dance the steps taught to us from a young age. In perfect unison, we all begin the line dance, looking like something out of Footloose. As I’m turning with the beat, I notice Parker beside me, following along without missing a step. I look down at his feet, and smile, shaking my head.

Two more songs come on, each with its own line dance to accompany the music, and we all dance. The next song that comes on is a slower one, so I head back to the bar in need of a cold beer to cool down. Line dancing always gets me excited but it can be tiring. Before I make it out of the crowd, an arm jerks me back and turns me. I’m facing Parker, his smile causing my heart rate to speed out of control. “One more,” he says, beginning the two-step to Billy Currington’s lyrics. Leading me around the dance floor, Parker is confident, his grip on me firm as we move through the other people dancing.

“You know, for someone who mocks my boots, yours look quite worn and broken in.”

He chuckles, his grip tightening around my waist. “I may not be from Tuscaloosa, but I am a southern boy, Savannah.” His drawl heavier, making his point.

REVIEW

Do you ever just start reading a book and the world literally dissolves and the only thing you see, breathe and on your mind is everything in the book?

EVERYTHING. IS. SO. SWEET. AND. BEAUTIFUL.

I would really love to be able to explore this author’s mind. This is the third novel I’ve read that is written by her and each time, she surpass my expectations and gets even better!

It’s not just her writing, but the way she describes the love between the characters’, their emotions, feelings, thoughts, movements…EVERYTHING!

Sweet on Wilde is one of the sweetest, funniest and at one point, really painful-for-my-heart-and-feels-threatening-to-explode novel I have ever read!

Don’t get me started on Savannah and Parker because…(TOO LATE I’M GOING TO START!)

Savannah is so humorous and seeing Parker’s shy or should I say, unsure moments really got me into fits of laughter!

PARKER IS SO DOWN-TO-EARTH!

Really, it’s the first time I’ve read about a guy who’s charming but isn’t a jerk, ass, dick and extremely sweet like most of the time!

Their banter is my life. Literally. I live for Savannah and Parker’s extremely sweet banter!

EVERYTHING THEY DO IS LITERALLY SO BEAUTIFUL AND IT MAKES ME CRY AT THE LAST QUARTER OF THE BOOK. *ugly wailing*

Fabiola Francisco is definitely my contemporary romance go-to author! Highly recommended not just Sweet on Wilde (THIS IS DEFINITELY A MUST READ!) but also her other novels to everyone!

 

About the author:

Fabiola Francisco is a contemporary romance author from Miami, FL. She has always enjoyed writing. When she was young she began writing creatively. It was always a therapeutic way for her to express herself. She began with poetry, and throughout the years went expanding to short narratives until she finally decided to write a novel.

Her love for books has inspired her to write her own stories. Her books range from emotional to lighthearted humor. She is a firm believer in happily ever afters and the sometimes jagged path to achieving it. She hopes to continue writing more stories to reach readers individually.

When she’s not writing, Fabiola loves expressing herself through art and being out in nature. She loves to cuddle with a good book and a glass of wine.

REVIEW

Amazingly sexy and hot!

Resisting You is one of those novel that will get you all hot and bothered! Restoring Us was amazing and I have always wondered what would happened to Aiden and Stacy! Thank all the gods and stars that the author decided to have a novella dedicated to them!

Aiden and Stacy are both straightforward hard-asses, with Stacey being slightly gentler, but their sex is just mind-blowing! It’s so sexy, the feelings they have for each other, and oh so beautiful!

Phew! It’s so hot in here like someone please get the fire extinguisher because seriously, Stacy and Aiden are the masters of hot-and-sexy dancing AND IT’S BURNING UP!

Even though this was a short novella, the story was pretty amazing and the way the characters are developed wasn’t too rush either!

Resisting Us is definitely worth FIVE AMAZING AND SEXY STARS!

Miss Fabiola Francisco has now officially become one of my favourite author!

Highly recommended for mature readers and oh, you might need a fire extinguisher and a change of panties!

Two years.

It’s been two long years since Ava packed everything and left the life she once knew far behind her seeking a new adventure. All, except for her broken heart. 

Once upon a time Ava and Ethan were in love. Their relationship was perfect, and they both planned a future together, filled with promise and hope. It wasn’t until an unwelcomed event storms into their lives, tearing their plans and dreams away; leaving Ethan broken and Ava unable to recover. 

Two years later, fate crosses their paths once again but the shadow of their haunted past lingers. Ava has slowly rebuilt her life, finally finding some normalcy in it. On the other hand, Ethan has sorted to releasing his guilt and remorse in questionable ways, but his thoughts never strayed from the memories of Ava. 

Will they get a second chance to rewrite their story, or will the pain and rejection be too much for Ava to bear and furthermore forgive?

Restoring Us is definitely worth FIVE FREAKING-AMAZING-DEVASTINGLY-HEARTBREAKING STARS!

I find the love between Ava and Ethan so beautiful it hurts!

IT HURTS TO SEE JUST HOW IN LOVE THEY ARE AND IT’S EVEN WORSE WHEN ETHAN LEFT HER.

Their goodbye, oh god, is the worst. They say goodbye without actually saying the exact word but deep down, they know what it actually means so the readers, mainly me at that moment, was bawling my eyes out and just making really loud whale noises.

I understand both Ava and Ethan’s actions. I mean, I tried imagining myself as Ava and then, as Ethan, aaand I gave up because if I was really Ava, I’ll probably be hugging myself in a bedroom and eat lots of ice-cream and just wailing like a baby.

My point is…

WHY DID ETHAN WALKED OUT ON HER AND SERVES HIM RIGHT FOR GETTING THE COLD TREATMENT FROM AVA!

Then here comes the problem, you’ll understand why Ethan did what he did and feel sad because this novel is from both Ava and Ethan’s point of view.

It’s such a beautiful story.

Restoring Us more like PLEASE RESTORE MY FEELS AND FEELINGS BACK IN ORDER BECAUSE I’M SUFFERING FROM THE BEAUTY OF THIS STORY!

Highly recommended for readers who love to read a frustrating-infuriating love story that will have you tearing your hair out and bawling your eyes out while reading!
