You remember the fabulous Cassandra Giovanni from some of my earlier posts, don't you?
Well today I am hosting a guest post by her in honour of her new release Love Exactly.
And without further talking from me here is the guest post, the topic is Making Sparks Fly:
It’s the fourth of July over here in the US today, and fireworks will be everywhere. I thought it would be a great chance for a post on romance-- Making Sparks Fly. The thing about making sparks fly is sometimes people just think of that animalistic attraction; it’s something I’ve grown used to in YA. There just seems to be no rhyme or reason and BOW all of a sudden the characters are in insta-love. It’s more like insta-attraction. They can’t pull their eyes off one another. They want each other so badly! Sometimes I struggle to understand exactly why. Sure, he’s got muscles, but does he have a brain? When I make sparks fly I want it to be more than about the sexy tattoos Evan has all over his arms--it’s about the way he looks at Emma...and I don’t mean like he wants to eat her! The way he listens to her talk and takes an interest in who she is on the inside. Sparks traditionally are thought of as physically created--he’s hot--there’s the spark. I however, think that sparks should fly in all kinds of ways-- like fireworks you put on yourself (something I am again, not looking forward to) they are uncontrollable, sometimes unreasonable, but there’s something more to it than the beauty. It’s about the emotions that come with those fireworks (in my case, fear that my husband’s hand is going to get blown off) and it’s beautiful to watch. I love making sparks fly for my characters as they learn about each other, grow with each other and eventually fall in love. That’s something beautiful to read (and much less dangerous than fireworks). So if you want to see some sparks fly that won’t take out your eye sight--take a look at Love Exactly!
And of course the book info:
Book Description:Emma Walker was a writer who'd lost herself to someone else's anger--who had given up on ever feeling like herself again.
Evan Levesque was a rock-god--the one all the woman wanted, but he'd never gotten used to the loneliness between the stage and real life.
With just one cup of coffee they'll begin a journey of self-discovery at each others sides, but can Emma handle Evan's fame while dealing with her own demons? Emma's checkered personal past, a bad relationship that haunts the edges of her memories, threatens to make everything implode on them when Evan takes matters into his own hands.
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but your words...they'll destroy my soul--Can Emma handle being put back together and facing who she's become because of it?
