Sometimes, when I read a story I wrote a while ago, I cringe. Those are the ones with the poor writing and naff story-line. I re-read Just Like a Date (published by Dreamspinner Press on 11 July 2012) the other day and, while I can see things I could change to improve the story, make it or the characters stronger, I still enjoyed reading it. It was fun. So I thought I'd put it here for everyone to enjoy again.
Just Like a Date is book #2 in the Just Life Series. The first book, Just His Type has the same two major characters - Rebel and Daron - but not the happy ending. Just Like a Date picks up that story a couple of days later. I hadn't even considered that Rebel and Daron would have more story when I finished Just His Type. If I had, I might have written it then and they would have been one book. Who knows - the two books might end up joined together one day.
The theme for Just Like a Date is Sometimes it's better to be friends. It could also be Don't settle; keep searching for true love.
Don't you love the cover? It's exactly the kind of thing I like: simple, clear, hinting at more.
Sequel to Just His Type
Rebel Nguyen and Daron Boroughs both need to be loved, but when Rebel looks at Daron to fill that role, it mangles their friendship. Rebel tries a clean break and meets Jeremy. They hit it off, but Rebel is preoccupied with might-have-beens.
When Rebel doesn’t contact him for days, Daron feels lost. He decides he’ll never find love unless he can change, but the process of his makeover throws him into the arms of his last trick’s ex-boyfriend. Shockingly, they work together—until Daron inevitably screws it up.
Rebel and Daron both need to learn that they don’t have to change themselves for love—just the way they look for it.
