Hello! I'm here to celebrate the release of Mila Ferrera's fantastic NA book, SPIRAL!
SPIRAL is one of those read-in-one-sitting books. It's an intelligent romance that is so gripping, with a romance that is pretty sweet and spicy for you new adult fans out there. Seriously, you won't be disappointed and I'm very picky when it comes to NA!
So today's Blogfest is about doing the thing that scares you. And let me tell you, I've done that a few times. But there is one situation that I'm particularly proud of.
See, I have a fear of heights. Any situation where there is a real possibility of falling and smashing my head scares me crazy.
So I was a little worried when I went rock climbing for the first time many years ago. It was at the Gunks in New Paltz, NY.
|FYI, this is not a picture of me. I was wearing a purple Dinosaur Jr t-shirt. |
You could practically see the waves of fear surrounding me like a big, black aura.
But you know what was just as strong? My inner voice that said, "Don't quit. Focus. To hell with the fear. Just do it."
Nike didn't pay me to say that, but honestly, it really does mean something. And when I reached the top, it was one of the purest sensations of success I have ever felt.
Was it worth the terror?
What did I learn?
That my mind can be stronger than my fear. That was a priceless lesson.
So! Let me tell you a bit about this book! Because at it's core, it's about conquering fear for the sake of love.
Nessa Cavanaugh, psychology student, knows how to stay on an even keel. Despite the urging of her mother and her academic advisor to get a life and have some fun, “all work and no play” sums up her plan to survive her grueling internship year at a children's hospital. She doesn't want to end up like her father, whose constant ups and downs broke her family, and avoiding unnecessary emotional entanglements is a must.
Then she (literally) runs into Dr. Aron Lindstrom in the middle of her disastrous first day on the job. The attraction is instant—and terrifying. Nessa knows she should stay away—especially when she finds out he has a reputation for being a player—but Aron is brilliant, intense, and as sexy as they come. When he challenges her to take a chance on him, her plans to stay focused on work start to crumble.
But what begins as passion takes on a dangerous edge, becoming an emotional roller coaster that’s frighteningly familiar. As things spiral out of control, Nessa must decide whether she should hold on for the ride or run … even if it means leaving her heart behind.
