Release day for Forever Rome

release day giveaway (2).png

My first contemporary stand-alone romance novel is now live. Although I have published three other books in the past year, they have all been romantic suspense. I have to say, I absolutely loved writing this book, and I am already working on the next in my Forever series (which takes readers to different cities around the world). I started with Rome since it’s one of my favorite places I’ve visited. A lot of the elements of the story are a blend of my own personal experiences in both life and in Rome (minus falling for a football player, of course . . .!)

The book is on sale for only 99cents right now & there is a great giveaway pinned to my FB page: https://www.facebook.com/authorbrittneysahin/

BLURB:

A football fanatic sports columnist. A sexy Italian soccer player. When in Rome . . .

Maggie Lane, a sports columnist and diehard football fan, is not exactly enthused when her editor-in-chief sends her to Rome, Italy, to write a feature story on Italian soccer star Marco Valenti. The last thing she wants to do is spend three weeks covering soccer right before the American football season begins. But Maggie’s job becomes a lot more appealing after meeting a sexy Italian man on her first night there.

One hot kiss and she is done for . . . but once Maggie discovers her mysterious Italian is Marco Valenti, she’s not sure if she’ll be able to write her story objectively, or if she’ll even have to. Marco stuns the world when he announces his retirement, and without an explanation as to why, rumors fly and the tension mounts. Despite Maggie’s protests, she is forced to stay, but with each passing day, she becomes enchanted with the beautiful city, as well as finds herself breaking her cardinal rule—never fall for a player.

As Maggie learns the truth about Marco, she has to make a decision: protect him or keep her job. Will Marco be able to trust her with his secrets? Can she trust him with her heart?

Release day for The Truth She Knew!

511gsbv4usl

Happy release day to the talented author, J.A. Owenby! I was super excited to have the opportunity to read an advanced review copy of The Truth She Knew, and wow, what a great debut full-length novel by Owenby.

BLURB:

Mama didn’t want me. In fact, she would’ve traded my soul back for someone different if God would’ve let her, but he didn’t, so she was stuck with me. 

For eighteen-year-old Lacey, life at home is a rollercoaster. She doesn’t think she’ll ever be good enough to truly deserve Mama’s love. 

But when Lacey enters college and meets Walker, everything starts to change. Suddenly, Lacey is face to face with the realization that maybe what she’s always seen as normal really isn’t. Her entire life—and everything she’s ever believed about herself and her family—is abruptly hanging in midair. 

Lacey is left facing two paths, and she has to make a choice. The first means walking away from everything she’s ever known. The other means never really knowing the truth. 

The Truth She Knew offers an honest and powerful glimpse into mental illness, the meaning of true love, and the psychological waltz that a daughter dances as she endures her mother’s unpredictable emotions, manipulation, and abuse. 

*** Ages 17+ Contains language, sex, and violence 
*** This is book 1 in a series

5star

My Review:

I read J.A. Owenby’s short stories last year, and they left a memorable impression upon me. Learning she was writing this book, The Truth She Knew, I was very excited to read! I was blown away with the author’s style of writing and found myself highlighting several passages as I read. I was intrigued to learn more about Lacey and mother from the very beginning, and I kept turning the pages until I almost finished in one sitting to see how the story unfolded. A truly powerful book dealing with sensitive issues in a sensitive and thought-provoking manner.

This really is an extraordinary story and a must read for 2016. I eagerly look forward to reading the next book by this author.

What are other readers saying?

“J.A. Owenby has outdone herself! The Truth She Knew is a beautifully written, thought provoking story that will leave you wanting more. The feelings and emotions come through page after page, and I while I could not put the book down, I also didn’t want it to end.” ~ Sarah J.

“I’m in love!! I could NOT put this down and I read the entire book in half a day!” ~ Nancy S.

“A bittersweet story of young love, independence, and soul-crushing manipulation.” ~ Dr. Sheri Kaye Hoff

“I could not put this novel down! Be prepared for an emotional roller coaster ride and have the box of tissues handy.” ~ Colleen C.

EXTRACT:

“You can’t run from yourself,” I whispered.

“What?” he said and moved closer.

“You can’t run from yourself,” I said louder. “When you’re the problem, if you run, it just follows you. No matter what I do, no matter how hard I try to change, I’m not getting better.”

Confusion clouded Walker’s face as he struggled with my words.

“Are you sick?” he asked as his voice hitched.

“I . . .”

He didn’t step any closer and wrap his arms around me. He didn’t promise things would be okay this time.

“Yes, Walker, I’m sick.” I bit my lip and forced the tears back. I was so tired of crying.

I am excited to introduce author A.R. Hadley to my fantastic list of featured authors. She has recently published her first novella: The Drazen World: Release. I am anxious to read it, and it is coming up soon on my tbr list! A.R. Hadley is also working on other books as well, and I eagerly look forward to the release of her books! Be sure to check out her novella & send her some review love!

Blurb:

I chose Jessica. 
I married her. 
She saved me. 
Me — Jonathan Drazen. 
What would happen if the wind shifted direction? If I made new suggestions? 
I changed my line of sight. I started to focus on the unattainable because nothing was out of my reach. Nothing. 
Children. 
Happiness. 
Success. 
I had the universe by a string. A yo-yo. I could bring it up or down. I could fit it inside my pocket and carry it anywhere I pleased. 
Then why did I have an uneasy feeling? The kind of sensation an animal feels just before a storm or an earthquake? It was subtle enough to ignore, yet strong enough to prick me, reminding me that denial would result in severe repercussions to my psyche or my marriage. 
Suffer now or suffer later. 
I had a choice. 
Fly away from the clouds or dive head first into the nebula.

Who is A.R. Hadley?

A.R. Hadley writes imperfectly perfect sentences by the light of her iPhone. 
She loves her husband. 
Chocolate.
Her children. 
And Cary Grant. 
She annoys those darling little children by quoting lines from Back to the Future, but despite her knowledge of eighties and nineties pop culture, she was actually meant to live alongside the lost generation after the Great War and write a mediocre novel while drinking absinthe with Hemingway. Instead, find her sipping sweet tea with extra lemons on her porch as she weaves fictional tales of love and angst amid reality. 
A creative writer since elementary school, A.R. all but gave it up after her children were born, devoting herself to the lovely little creatures, forgetting the pleasure and happiness she derived from being imaginative. 
No more.
She rediscovered her passion in 2014 and has not stopped since — writing essays, poetry, and fiction. She is currently working on completing several novels as part of a romantic trilogy. 
Day or night, words float around inside her mind. She hears dialogue when she awakens from sleep. She is the one who has been awakened. Writing is her oxygen. Cary Grant fans the flames.

**I LOVE HER BIO. Mine is not nearly as cool!!**

PhilPrice

I am excited to introduce author, Phil Price. I recently stumbled upon his work on Twitter, and I purchased his book, Unknown. Not only is Unknown an awesome book, but Phil Price is a great guy, and a huge supporter of other authors. I highly recommend you check out his work! He’s currently rocking a solid 5.0 on Amazon.com!!

 Blurb for Unknown:

Every year across the world thousands of people disappear.
Many return home safe and well. Some are never found.
A select few end up far from home, harvested by two feuding brothers who need their blood.
How on Earth can this happen?
It doesn’t happen on Earth.

Who is Phil Price?

P.Price.jpg

Phil Price was born in Sutton Coldfield in 1974. He lived in various places until his family settled in Rednal, Birmingham in 1979. Growing up with and older brother and sister he always flirted with reading as there were always books lying on shelves around the house. Then in 1997 he embarked on a travel expedition that took him from Greece to Thailand, via East and Southern Africa. Sitting in dusty bus stations in Kenya, Tanzania, and Malawi gave him the opportunity to ignite his imagination fully. Since those far off days he has never been without a book to read.

He toyed with the idea of writing a book in 2009. After writing a few short stories he caught a whiff of a story in his head. It grew and grew in 2010 until he had enough to begin. Marriage and two children came along, with the story being moved to the back burner for periods of time. However during those periods of writing inactivity the story continued to evolve until it just needed to be written down.

“Some people say that time heals all wounds, but no. Time only deepens the wound. And when I saw Olivia that night in the club, I realized I hated her now more than ever.”

Connor Matthews, former Marine and gun for hire, is not what you’d call the quintessential businessman. But when his father’s unexpected passing leaves the family business to him and his brother, Connor agrees to take over until his brother finishes his last tour of duty. Connor resigns himself to a life of dull meetings and paperwork, but quickly finds himself mired in his father’s web of shady business deals.

She must put the past behind her in order to survive . . . but can she forgive the man who broke her heart?

FOREVER (1)

Why Rome?

Italy is one of my favorite countries. I am fortunate enough to have family there, and I fell in love the second I stepped foot in the beautiful country.

I also believe that Rome is a magical city. Post college, I was standing in front of the infamous Trevi Fountain (where you throw a coin over your shoulder and make a wish)… and I wished for love. Shortly after I returned to the U.S. I fell madly in love (a total accidental meeting via wrong email communication… with my now-husband)–So… WHEN IN ROME… 🙂
