These characters are easy to follow why they do what they do in the story line. The characters are well developed. I was shocked over the four characters in this book. The author did a great job keeping them all straight and easy for the reader to keep track of all of them and not get lost of whom was doing what when.

The story line ran very smoothly and it had lots of ups and downs that kept me to the seat wondering what would be next. The story line felt like it was centered around the four characters and that was what drove the story line forward.

I love the way that the author made this book to have the reader inside each character’s head and still kept the story line in tacked. It helped me, the reader understand why the character did or did not do something in the story line.

All I can say is that Chelsea can have Dominic but Lilah has a run for her money with Jake. I love Jake, he is on my book boyfriend list. 😉

Ten Tips For Becoming A Better Writer

1- Write. I know that may sound silly because it’s so obvious. But if you want to hone your skills you have to do the work. That means stop talking about writing or coming up with excuses that you don’t have the time. Just do it.

2- Read other great writers. Read everything you can get your hands on no matter what genre. I’ve heard writers say they rarely read and that’s strange to me. I was, and still am a devoted reader first and foremost.

3- Write what you know and like. Just because erotica has gotten more popular since Fifty Shades doesn’t mean everyone needs to go write a BDSM novel. If you don’t have a clue what you’re talking about, you probably shouldn’t write it. For me, I’m not into Science Fiction. I will never attempt a novel in that genre. I guarantee it would not be up to par because that genre is way over my head. Be honest with yourself and your readers.

4- Recruit a dependable and honest editing team. The more eyes you have on your work, the better. You need someone that will tell you like it is and not say they love every single thing you write. Everything you write will not be perfect. In fact, some of it will suck. If someone tells you it is perfect all the time, they are most like lying to you or afraid to be real. A good editor doesn’t have to be mean or spiteful. There are ways of explaining what needs changed, trashed, or fleshed out without being cruel.

5- Surround yourself with awesome beta readers that enjoy your style of writing. Again, you need people that will be honest with you and tell you when something is not up to par. Beta’s can be your best critique partners. They will also point out if you’ve changed your hero’s eye color by accident or if it seems like something is missing or needed in the content. If a beta reader catches a spelling or punctuation mistake, that’s awesome too!

6- Don’t be afraid to cut out excess. Trim the fat. Lose the unnecessary or repetitive words. I learned this the hard way by being hit with a few negative reviews on using too many endearments between a couple in love.

7- Organize a timeline so you don’t lose track. This is imperative if you’re planning a series.

8- I like to write a description and basic biography of each character before I start writing the story. Not only does it help me keep track of the details about each one, but I have it to go back to and refresh my memory as I’m building the story.

9- Write even if you don’t feel like it. You may start out uninspired but if you put forth the effort, you’ll create a habit of it. The more you write, the better it will flow. So what if it’s not in your current piece of work! Write in a journal about something amazing you saw or a dream you had. Saying every day that you have writers block or that your muse is out cavorting in the snow will only show you put forth zero effort.

10- Create a quiet space to write. It doesn’t have to be a fancy office or a dark writing cave. It can be as simple as curling up on the sofa with hot tea and a notebook. Listen to music that inspires you or have the television on in the background. Do whatever works for you as long as it gets you writing!
