Miranda Preston is a walking contradiction. Beautiful on the outside, but, insecure, haunted and damaged on the inside. Despite these contradictions, she’s ready to start Another New Life.

When her talent wins her a piano scholarship to the University of Texas at Austin, Miranda arrives on campus determined to experience everything college has to offer and to keep her secrets in the past where they belong.

An easy task, until the first guy who catches her eye happens to be someone, she’s known all her life.

Eight years have passed since the last time Miranda and Troy saw each other. He reminds her of the best and worst times of her life, but she can’t think about one without dwelling on the other. As they grow closer, every day their attraction reminds them they are no longer kids.

The epic romantic love story that is Miranda and Troy seems to be destined for a happy ending, but Miranda knows it’s only a matter of time before her secret is discovered. A secret that will not only destroy their relationship, it will destroy Troy, too.

Can Miranda focus on her future with Troy while preventing her past from tearing them apart all over again?

Coolest Thing

17667605The debut novel by Alessandra Thomas. I loved it. It was the coolest thing I read last week. I started it on Friday morning and had to finish it before going to bed on Saturday night.  It is a New Adult Romance where the heroine has body issues and the hero has a past to overcome and they have some really great sex scenes in the mix.  I don’t review books, but I do recommend. I loved this book.  Click on the book if your interested in purchasing this great read.

Thursday – The 5 Obstruction Blogathon – Really unique concept. 
*Short schedule this week. Busy with #JuNoWriMo.

Tattoo Tuesday – AM Schultz

Yes! Finally the man, the myth (what?), the legend has graced the pages of Sydney Aaliyah with his witty and evasive words of wisdom.

*Did I over sell it? No, I think I’m still good.

Ok, so without further ado, please welcome A.M. Schultz to Tattoo Tuesday:

1. How old where you when you got your first tattoo?

Age is a number. Sometimes I feel 20, sometimes I feel 40. 
That said, I got my first tattoo in October of 2008. I was old enough to
drink, but not old enough to rent a car. 
 

2. What made you want to get your first tattoo?

I was young and wanted some ink. I was going through a bit of a
“jaded-youth” stage, and was brimming with testosterone, libido, and
post-teenage angst. I lived on a diet of creatine and protein shakes, and
figured a tattoo was the next logical progression in my
“douchebadassness.” Really, it was for all the wrong reasons.
 
MMA was starting to become popular and I was seeing a lot of guys get
nautical stars on their chest. I liked the whole “human as lost ship
finding its way in the night” philosophy behind them, so I got them.
 
Unfortunately, because I might as well have been auditioning for a role on
The Jersey Shore at the time and had been GTL’ing pretty hard, I strolled
into the shop with this huge barrel chest and the stars tends to float in
their own wave of muscular inflation and deflation, depending on my
commitment to superficiality at any given time.

3. How many tattoos do you have?

As of right now, only these two. I intend on getting more, but have
intended on getting more for the past four years.
I had “settled down” for a few years, though, and “settled” men don’t
really need to go sit in the chair or live at the gym, so my journey has
been a bit protracted…
Now that I am “unsettled” — which would sound awful if I wasn’t trying to
pass myself off as a writer — I am free to go get all inky.

4. What is your tattoo story? If you have more then one tattoo, tell me your most recent or your favorite tattoo.

It’s not as deep or introspective as I’d like. I had wanted a sleeve done
that would interweave the major world religions, but never had the right
combination of time/money. I will have to revisit Tattoo Tuesday after my
next session. 🙂
 

5. Tattoos on a significant other, like or dislike? Why?

Absolutely. I appreciate art and expression and creativity, and a tattoo
can be a great indicator of some combination of the three.
