A quick recap of my guest blog posts for the release of Heart & Soul and some awesome reviews!
For release day, I visited Prism Book Alliance to talk about how music relates to writing in my world.
Then I stopped by From Top to Bottom Reviews for a discussion of Kellen’s demisexuality.
Finally, over at The Novel Approach, I talked about the kinds of research I do for my stories.
And a few of the reviews so far…
Divine Magazine: “The main characters were both extremely lovable and they fit together like a glove. The chemistry and connection they shared was undeniable and jumped off the pages at you.”
Hearts on Fire: “If you like gentle romances that is more character driven than sex driven, I believe you will like this one. And usually, the best compliment you can give is to say I enjoyed this book so much, I’d love to read about these characters again, even though this was a very satisfying read.”
Joyfully Jay: “This was a light, easy, wonderful read. There’s no angst here, not really. It’s just about two guys finding each other, having loving, supportive families, and how their lives intertwine almost effortlessly.”
Two Chicks Obsessed: “Overall the story was a nice little light read, kind of short but I only mention that cuz I could have read more about these two, I wasn’t ready for it to end.”
Just Love Romance: “If you’re in the market for a light, heartwarming read, then you usually can’t go wrong with Shae Connor’s works. She has a knack for throwing hot characters into sweet relationships, and Heart & Soul is prime example of this.”
Sinfully: “Recommended reading if you enjoy low-angst, close-knit family stories with romance rather than heat.”
Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words: “I enjoy the author’s writing style and appreciate the sense of family, warmth, and connection she brings to her books, not to mention the light touch of humor and a load of romance. I highly recommend this one to lovers of romance, slow burn, and/or stories featuring musicians.”
Love can sneak up on you in the last place you’d expect.
Kellen Grady has known he’s gay since he was a teenager, but he’s never been that interested in dating. A professional pianist, he’s happy spending his days teaching students of all ages and his nights working and playing at an Atlanta bar and concert venue. When former pro football player Terrence Harvey and his brother buy the bar, Kellen’s thrown by the change to his routine, but he develops a quick friendship with Terrence, drawn to his sunny nature and sharp mind. Then their relationship takes a turn when Terrence surprises Kellen with a kiss. The unexpected action, though not unwelcome, leaves Kellen faced with reevaluating everything he thought he knew—about Terrence, and about himself.
