Opposites in every way . . . except the one that matters

Shaw Landon loved Rule Archer from the moment she laid eyes on him. Rule is everything a straight--A pre-med student like Shaw shouldn't want--and the only person she's never tried to please. She isn't afraid of his scary piercings and tattoos or his wild attitude. Though she knows that Rule is wrong for her, her heart just won't listen.

To a rebel like Rule Archer, Shaw Landon is a stuck-up, perfect princess-and his dead twin brother's girl. She lives by other people's rules; he makes his own. He doesn't have time for a good girl like Shaw-even if she's the only one who can see the person he truly is.

But a short skirt, too many birthday cocktails, and spilled secrets lead to a night neither can forget. Now, Shaw and Rule have to figure out how a girl like her and a guy like him are supposed to be together without destroying their love . . . or each other.

After Trevor painfully rejects her, Liz finally starts to move on, but Trevor is finding it difficult to truly let her go. It seems the more he tries to stay away, the more intense his feelings for her become. Like a stretched rubber band, he can only take so much before snapping.

Can Trevor prove to her that he is worth falling in love with again, and is he ready to change his life plan to let her into his heart?

Cuap-cuap: Liebster Blog Award



Aihhhh... Kirian gak bakal kena Liebster Blog Award (LBA) ini, ternyata kena juga dari mbak Ratih (The Bookly Purple). Sebenarnya aku sudah baca-baca LBA ini di beberapa teman blog yang lain. Yang pertama kali terlintas dalam pikiranku "Pertanyaannya banyak yaaaa..."

Kalau mau tahu caranya, silakan mengunjungi blognya mbak Ratih ya :) Pertama-tama, mari menjawab pertanyaan dari mbak Ratih.

Sejak kapan kamu suka membaca buku?
Sejak masih SD kelas 1. Papa punya satu koper buku Inggris (komik sih) dan kasetnya. Isinya ada Dr. Jeckyl and Hyde, Gulliver's Story, Oliver Twist, dan lain-lain. Jadi baca sambil dengerin kasetnya. Di Jayapura gak ada hiburan sih dulu, jadilah aku baca buku :)

Terus pernah dikasih satu set kecil (4 buku) berbahasa Inggris sebagai hadiah ultah. Bercerita tentang beruang kecil. Ini lupa euy judulnya apa. Tapi aku suka banget nih buku waktu kecil. Untungnya kertasnya karton super tebal gitu, jadi gak rusak dibaca terus-terusan =P

Love is like an avalanche. It hits hard, fast and without mercy.

At least it did for me when Sculpt, the lead singer of the rock band Tear Asunder knocked me off my feet. Literally, because he’s also a fighter, illegally of course, and he taught me how to fight. He also taught me how to love and I fell hard for him. I mean the guy could do sweet, when he wasn't doing bossy, and I like sweet.

Then it all shattered.

Kidnapped.
Starved.
Beaten.
I was alone and fighting to survive.
When I heard Sculpt's voice, I thought he was there to save me.

I was wrong.

A Woman Yearning For A Taste Of The Forbidden...

At twenty-six, aspiring novelist Avis Copley intends to wear spinsterhood as a badge of honor. But when she discovers a volume of erotica that ignites a searing fire within her, Avis realizes just how much she doesn't know about the actual pleasures of the flesh. Determined to learn more, she devises a daring plan...

A Man Ready To Teach Her Much, Much More...

But when the brash earl of Selby, Banning Talbot, a man she has known for years, unearths Avis' true intentions, he claims she's made a dangerously bad choice. Volunteering his services for one wicked night of reckless, abandoned passion, Banning promises he will satisfy all of her deepest longings.

Or will Chloe's colorful past keep her from a love that lasts... and the safe haven she truly wants in a town called Lucky Harbor?
