Blissful Bets and a great reader review for Passion Projected

I've just finished editing and reading over the third installment in the Blissful Bets series. This story is great! I had a blast writing about Melissa, the fiery redhead. There are parts where I couldn't quit lauging (which isn't good because of this horrible cough) and of course the emotional aspect.

All my girls have had something happen in thier lives that make them act the way they do. Melissa's story was harder for me to relate because although on some levels, I could feel what she must have gone through, there were times where I really had to open myself up and focus on the how exactly she would react and grow in her situation. This story really challenged me, but overall I think it turned out amazing!

I'll be doing the dreaded part of making the blurb, synopsis, and of course the chapter by chapter short brief. That is the hardest part for me. How can you sum up a chapter in three or so sentences? It is impossible for me, and I know Alison must pull out her hair when she sees that on every chapter I have twice as much as I'm supposed to.

Well, let's hope she doesn't get upset because this story is almost impossible to sum up in a few sentences. I'll make do, I always do.

On another note. I wanted to post this reader review of Passion Projected. I always find myself coming back to it, in awe. It's hard to believe that these wonderful words are about my story.

Here's the review....

 The title alone, "Passion Projected," caught my interest enough to be not satisfied until reading the book. I wasn't disappointed from the beginning to the final words of the author.
Dream or reality? Marley's conundrum surfaces quickly for the reader and the fleshing of characters, Zachary, Cole , and Jordan, move at lightening speed. The more I read, the faster I read.
The author vividly captures mind's strength through startling projections of passions that rise above normal sensual interactions. She is able to do this by her masterful usage of syntax.
I was understanding the usage of mental , soulfully if you will, and physical parings that led to the passionate and exotic paranormal romance that evolved in this story. I usually do not read this genre but after reading "Passion Projected," I expect to read more of this author. Thank you Jennifer Salaiz for introducing me to your artful creative writing.

Thank you, Robert. I'm so glad you enjoyed the story. :)

Dark Diva Review of Engaging Evelyn

Engaging Evelyn by Jennifer Salaiz

Publisher: Siren Publishing
Genre: Erotic, Paranormal, Ménage, M/F/M

Review Copy received from Publisher

Summary: Determined to overcome her broken heart, Evelyn devises the game Bets. She’s sure that if she stays distracted by good looking men, her problems will go away. But what she doesn’t expect is the persistent, gorgeous Brandon conveniently appearing everywhere she turns.

Brandon moves into the resort style condo prepared to make Evelyn fall in love with him. The last thing he expects is the ex fiancé showing up and complicating things. On a mission to make Evelyn pay, Brandon’s not willing to let anything get in his way. Even if that means submitting to the feelings he’s truly beginning to feel for her.

Stacey’s Review: Engaging Evelyn has to be Jennifer Salaiz’s best work to date. It is the first book in the Blissful Bets series. From the concept to the engaging writing style, I was enthralled. Evelyn and her friends play their naughty game, called Bets, where they end up sleeping with strange, handsome men. We learn that Evelyn’s wild behavior is only to mask the hurt she feels within.

Jennifer Salaiz did an amazing job in showing us the depth of emotion that her characters felt. This was a fun, sexy read with hot werewolf and vampire men. The writing flowed beautifully and kept my attention from page one until the very end. Evelyn’s emotional journey touched me and I rooted for her the entire read. I highly recommend this story of good girls gone very, very bad.

Rated 5 Delightful Divas and a Recommended Read by Stacey!
