Hidden Gems Just Named "The Secret Ingredient" One of its Hottest Romances of 2019. Here's Why I'm So Excited...

Hidden Gems Hottest Romances of 2019 - Kilby Blades.png

I am a-okay with the fact that Hidden Gems put The Secret Ingredient on its list of the Hottest Romances of 2019! I am even more okay with the reader review they put in the article. If you’ve ever sat with me and talked books, or listened to interviews with me in which I talk about my reading preferences, you’ll know all about a pet peeve of mine when it comes to romance novels. It’s the one...

"I honestly really enjoyed this book! The relationship between Levi and Adam was complex from the beginning and went through some unexpected ups and downs. Levi is a wonderful character through and through, and Adam starts off with a lot flaws but..." Read more of this review »

This is the first book I've read by Kilby and let me say...she has the romance down to a fine art! Of course it helps when the characters are hot, one is extremely rich and they both..." Read more of this review »

“Before you spend a single dollar or a single minute on a new marketing approach, think critically about how a specific approach gels with your library.”
Kilby Blades, The Book Marketing Audit: Get Better Results with a Better Plan

“I smiled more widely before we both went back to our tests. Mr. Taylor rolled his eyes. I didn’t care what he thought of us, or teenage love, or making goo-goo eyes at one another during a serious test. I didn’t care what anyone thought, because I knew. I knew Roxy was the best thing that had ever happened to me and that moving here was the best thing that ever happened to her. I knew this summer would be epic. I knew college was a long way away. And I knew that, one day, I would marry that girl.”
Kilby Blades, Friended: A Nostalgia Songfic

“I know you've been in love before, Mr. Vega. What I mean is, I know you and Roxy's mother were once in love. Only love could create a person as special as Roxy."

My feet stopped moving and I turned back to look at him again. This kid is good.

"Well, I'm in love with your daughter. And I mean no disrespect to you or her, sir. I only mean to fix it.”
Kilby Blades, Friended: A Nostalgia Songfic
