81. An Interview with Kati D from DearAuthor

Sarah and Jane talk with Kati D about the books that brought her to review for DearAuthor, and what books she finds totally crackalicious. We talk about her disappointments with series that she has loved, the frequency of the word “Babe” in some works, and what she’s looking forward to.

Book BEFORE YOU BREAK/Christina Lee

Don’t miss Christina Lee’s brand new ebook BEFORE YOU BREAK, a beautiful and emotional New Adult romance about a bad boy on the edge—and the girl who’s about to fall hard.

A college baseball star isn’t supposed to have skeletons in his closet. But Daniel Quinn is hiding a guilty past so dark he refuses to let anyone get close. Except there’s something about gorgeous, studious Ella Abrams that goes beyond the electric attraction between them–something that makes him want to open up.

Ella has suffered enough heartache and guilt to fill one of her psychology textbooks, but she keeps that part of herself hidden behind a bubbly exterior. Until she receives an anonymous call while working a suicide helpline and the voice on the other end touches something inside of her that she can’t ignore.

Soon Ella and Quinn’s physical connection heats up, even as their deep and revealing hotline talks intensify. But by the time Ella realizes that her seductive jock and her sensitive caller are the same guy, it might be too late to save him–or to stop herself from falling too far…

Before You Break is on sale wherever ebooks are sold.

    Oops, sorry I hit the enter key too soon! I think there’s a mistake. It’s the podcast number 80 that was posted this week on ITunes and Podcast Pickle “This week, Sarah interviews Elyse, who reviews romantic suspense, historicals and other fun things at Smart Bitches. “

    Sarah, Jane, and Kati,
    Your podcast was hilarious, informative, entertaining, and made me feel like I was in the room with you! I wanted to chime in during the Kristen Ashley bits because I recently discovered her (no idea what rock I’ve been under to have missed her) and I’m sure I looked like a goof with my ear buds in, head nodding in agreement, and laughing my ass off.
    I totally agree with you, Kati, Motorcycle Man is my favorite. I’ve reached the point where I actually get a kick out of the “Babe, got shit to do.” line. I just cannot put her books down. I’ve hoovered through at least twenty in two months. Even Knight didn’t put me off! lol (although I think I’ll skip the one with the MC who poops flowers.) Her voice is truly amazing but if someone asked me to explain that I would fail miserably. You just have to read her books to understand.
    I would love to hear a podcast of your thoughts, loves, hates on Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series and characters.
