C.L. Donley is a future New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of multicultural and interracial romance, who believes romance novels that are impossible to put down are the only kind that should exist! Armed with a B.A. in English and M.A. in Writing, she is new to the romance game, having written her first novel, Amara's Calling, after discovering the romance genre in September 2017. Donley writes in a style she calls "romantic realism" that is sophisticated yet simple, grounded yet unaplogetically escapist, and character-driven rather than plot-driven. This style creates a unique, modern reading experience ideal for book club discussions, personal epiphanies, satisfying re-reads, and the occasional spiraling reviewer! Love it or ...more

I’m Totes Obsessed with Tom Hollandz

In that way, fam. Is it borderline inappropriate? I’ll be the first to admit it: yes. He’s fourteen years younger than me, twice the number of my current cougar powers. One year shy of the threshold when these types of relationships are borderline gross to many– and that’s when the genders are flipped. But from GQ photoshoots, being all of us while spoiling expensive-ass movies, dance moves and holdi...In
