Hello my fellow Book Lovers all around the world! How is this weekend for you? Anything exciting happened to you? The week to come is far from exciting I’m afraid as far as new book releases are concerned. There are only a handful of books scheduled for release but even if we don’t have a really wide selection of books to choose from, still there are a couple of exciting releases among them. So, let’s start

Hello everyone! I’m taking over while our Latin Lover is on vacations. Last night was the 2013 edition of the Eurovision song contest. If you’re not from Europe you might not know this super kitsch contest. Each Euro country has 1 contestant and we get to vote for our favorite. It’s mostly fun to make fun of the stupid song.
I think the weirdest contestant yesterday was the guy from Romania. Please look at this awesome performance! lol
Anyway he didn’t win

Welcome to this week’s news post and once again we have another author meltdown but this time over their struggles for their art and selling out, Amazon moving into their own currency and more publishing and book updates.
Amazon is back in the news with their recent announcement that they will be launching a digital currency to purchase apps in the Kindle Fire platform. The more customers purchase and use Amazon Coins for buying apps the more discounts they will get and Amazon is enticing their customers with a free 500 coins offer for all customers in the US which comes up to $5 for those who buy games, movies or apps.
And talking about Amazon, I reported a few months ago that there was problems with their warehouses due to a security firm who were bullying and throwing racist abuse at workers in Germany. Well it looks like there …

“I don’t think man was meant to attain happiness so easily. Happiness is like those palaces in fairy tales whose gates are guarded by dragons: we must fight in order to conquer it” -Edmund Dantes.
Book adaptations are a constant bone of contention for Book Lovers. Do we want to see our favorite works beautifully depicted on screen a la Game of Thrones? Or are we outraged by the humorous defilement of a definitely not humorous body of literature in School of Thrones? (Note: Regardless of sexposition in the former, and lack of Arya in the latter, I am a huge fan of both adaptations.)
I take most adaptations on a case-by-case basis. But will instantly and irrevocably transform into a flaming ball of nerd-hate when screenwriters who are essentially transmitting the story directly from page to screen, get a sudden aneurysm brainstorm and “improve” the ending. Screw things like plot, character development, …

He’s undercover. She’s in over her head.
Yoga instructor Kylie Roberts is the good twin. At least she was—until an accident forces Kylie to step into her twin’s sexy stilettos at a posh Hollywood “men’s club.” But nothing could’ve prepared Kylie for the dead body in the club’s parking lot or the ridiculously hot detective who insists the killer is targeting her regulars.
Detective Trevor McCade needs Kylie’s help to draw out the killer. It means long nights undercover and long dances where Kylie’s body tempts him with sensual promises. Dances that leave them both wanting more. But despite Kylie’s hidden identity and the danger lurking in the shadows, it’s only …
You all know that I’m an equal opportunity reader when it comes to romance: I read anything from contemporary to historical, erotic to inspirational, sci-fi to paranormal. I keep an open mind and I’m always up to expand my reading horizons by experimenting with different sub-genres. So with that disclaimer out of the way I can make my confession: despite my tolerant and open-minded reader beliefs I sometimes discriminate books/stories/characters based on names.
And I don’t mean the cutesy and at times over the top names of the town/place the story is set in, like a contemporary romance being set in the small town of Love, or Promise Harbor or a historical romance taking place in Harmony Creek or Temperance Manor. No, those just receive an eyebrow twitch, but they don’t disturb me too much to make me stop reading the book.
Author: Lauren Miller

Abby Barnes had a plan. The Plan. She’d go to Northwestern, major in journalism, and land a job at a national newspaper, all before she turned twenty-two. But one tiny choice—taking a drama class her senior year of high school—changed all that. Now, on the eve of her eighteenth birthday, Abby is stuck on a Hollywood movie set, miles from where she wants to be, wishing she could rewind her life. The next morning, she’s in a dorm room at Yale, with no memory of how she got there. Overnight, it’s as if her past has been rewritten.
With the help of Caitlin, her science-savvy BFF, Abby discovers that this new reality is the result of a cosmic collision of parallel universes that has Abby living an alternate version of her life. And not only …
Please give a warm welcome to Christine S. Feldman, who stops by Book Lovers Inc. to celebrate the release of Coming Home, her debut romance novel! Christine is a fellow friends-to-lovers fan, just like myself and here she talks about why she enjoys reading and writing this trope so much. Join us and if you answer Christine’s question at the end you could even win an Amazon gift card! Christine, take it away!
I love friends-to-lovers romances. They’re some of my favorites. That’s probably why I still sit down and watch movies like Some Kind of Wonderful or When Harry Met Sally whenever they come on T.V. even though I already have the dialogue memorized.
There’s something about the hero and heroine starting out as friends that seems to add a deeper layer to the romance, because they already have so …
