E.L.’s Recent Updates

“That pissed me the hell off. I took in a deep breath and blurted out everything without thinking twice. “Fuck you! You want to know who I am, Marcus. Well here it goes! I am temperamental, over-sensitive, and outspoken. I’m honest! I cry at stupid love movies, and I'm a sucker for a romantic novel. I don’t allow people to walk all over me, I have trust issues, and I have insecurities. I’ve slept with four men in my entire life! And the one thing I don’t do is take shit from men who try to act like they’re better than me as if they don’t have any hidden skeletons! I’m not keeping shit hidden, how ‘bout you? You can fuck off. I'll find my own way home. Have a nice fucking life!” - Mia”
E.L. Montes, Disastrous

“Letting out a deep breath, he pressed his forehead down to mine. With his eyes closed, he whispered, “That’s what love is … It’s scary not knowing what’s expected, but I know it’ll be the best frightening love we’ve ever had.” - Marcus (Disastrous)”
E.L. Montes, Disastrous

“Make sure to tell our baby that his father loves him every day of his life, just like I will always love you every single day.”

“Being with Marcus DeLuca was draining, frustrating, confusing, and extraordinary all at the same time." Mia (Disastrous)”
E.L. Montes, Disastrous

“Marcus DeLuca had to be a dangerous man because I was caving in too soon; it was just too soon to feel this attachment, to feel and want him so desperately. When something seems too good to be true, it’s exactly that. - Mia”

Any chance of doing a giveaway to win an advance read? :)"


mmmmh that's a really good idea Amy. The only issue that may arise is that right now it's currently with the editor. Her deadline is Oct. 12. Then I have to make the final okay before it's finish. I'm not sure if I'll have it ready really soon. But I'll tell you this if I have it completely finished a week before the release date I might consider this. You will be the first to know! :)
