Book Descriptions: 
Gossip girl meets Hollywood in this new series by That Boy author, Jillian Dodd.  Keatyn has everything she ever dreamed of. Her life is following the script she wrote for the perfect high school experience. She’s popular, goes to the best parties, dates the hottest guy, and sits at the most coveted lunch table.    She’s just not sure she wants it anymore.  Because really, things aren’t all that perfect. Her best friend is threatening to tell everyone her perfect relationship is a scam.  Her perfect boyfriend gets drunk at every party they go to.  It’s exhausting always trying to look and act perfect. And deep down, she isn’t sure if she has any true friends.   To add to the drama, her movie star mom’s long-time fan has turned stalker. An older man is flirting with her and telling her they should make a movie together.  And she’s crushing on an adorable surfer. Dating a guy like him would mean committing social suicide.  So she writes a new script. One where all the pieces of her life will come together in perfect harmony. But little does she know, there’s someone who will do anything to make sure that doesn’t happen. 

I've always written scripts for my perfect life. But no way could I have ever scripted this. My life is so far from perfect, it’s not even funny. All because of a stalker.  I’m at a boarding school where I have to lie about who I am. I can’t see my family. I’m tutoring a Hottie God that tortures me with his smile. The most popular girl already hates me. But there’s this boy. This hot, sweet, sexy boy. So I’m going to stop trying to script my life and just live it. Because who knows how long I have left. 

That Boy is a contemporary romance about falling in love with the boys next door.  You know, being friends with two cute boys does have its benefits.   There's Danny. Danny is a golden boy in every way. He has dreamy blue eyes and blonde hair that always looks perfect, even when it’s windblown or been stuck under a football helmet. He’s the boy every girl crushes on. The boy I get into trouble with, the boy I fight with, the hot quarterback no girl can resist, not even me. Being with Danny is like being on an adventure. He has a bright, contagious smile and abs to die for. He’s pretty much irresistible.  Equally crush worthy is Phillip. Adorable, sweet Phillip, who I have known since birth.  Phillip has dark hair, a perfect smile, brown eyes, and the sexiest voice I have ever heard. He’s the boy I talk to every night before I go to sleep. The boy who rescues me, the boy who can read my mind, the boy who is always there for me, the boy who tries to keep me out of trouble, the boy who irritatingly keeps getting hotter, and whose strong arms always seem to find their way around me.  And when he gives me that grin, I can never say no.  One boy will give me my very first kiss. One boy will teach me to make out. One boy will take me to prom. And finally, one boy will ask me to marry him. They will both be my best friends. But only one of them will be the boy I fall in love with. Only one of them is That Boy. 

The gorgeous engagement ring on my finger mimics my happiness. I feel so sparkly, glittery, and full of promise, because I absolutely know he's that boy. The boy I want to marry. My prince. My happily ever after.  But then our pastor starts asking lots of questions. His parents say I haven’t dealt with my past.  I have horrible wedding disaster dreams. I can’t find the perfect dress. I have to manipulate him to get my way. An old boyfriend asks me to run away with him. My best friend says I'm going to ruin everything. And forever starts to sound like a really long time.  Which totally freaks me out and makes me question everything I know.  Should best friends get married?  Will my past affect our relationship? Are my horrible dreams a warning? Will I ever find a dress? Could his sexiness be clouding my judgment? Am I going to ruin everything? Or is it just a case of cold feet?  And then I have to decide. Am I willing to give up on true love forever, or am I going to listen to my heart and marry him?

Review & Giveaway: Fate's Design by Lola James

Fate's Design (Fate Series #1) by Lola James
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: LJ Publishing, Inc (self Published)
Pages: 220


Amazon | B&N |

Book Description:

A summer vacation in Italy with her twin sister, Morgan, is just what Megan Romano needs. But instead of fun, wine, and relaxation, she finds unexpected romance. Alexandros DiPiero, a sexy and mysterious Italian businessman, falls for Megan the minute he lays eyes on her, but Megan knows it’s too good to be true.

Increasingly haunting dreams that warn of danger and destiny plague Megan’s every sleeping moment. As her nightmares become deadly and her love life heats up, Megan will come face to face with her worst fear.

My Review:  I was really excited to be part of this tour.  I read Lola's other series Bound to Remember and I loved it, so I was looking forward to seeing what this new series would be like.  I was not disappointed.  Lola James weaves the mysterious and the mythical into her stories so well.  

Morgan Romano is as girly as it gets.  She squees over $200 shoes and wakes up to birds singing.  She's just one of THOSE kind of girls.  Happy and somewhat annoying, especially to her broodier twin sister Megan.  Morgan designs a dress and wins a scholarship to a school in Italy for the summer.  She talks Megan into joining her.  While there she meets Alexandros and falls hard.  He seems too good to be true - and maybe he is.  There are so many plot twists and turns in this book that you are ALWAYS guessing.

I like Megan as a character.  She is snarky and she loves her sister even though she finds her chipperness incredibly annoying most of the time.  On their whirlwind tour of Italy, Megan learns things about herself and about life.  She falls fast for Alexandros, but what girl wouldn't fall head over heels instantly for a gorgeous Italian man who is suave and debonair?    Morgan needs to figure out who to trust and learn to embrace her dreams in order to figure out what is going on.

I give this book 4 stars and I can't wait for the next book in the series.

About the Author:

Lola James has been reading romance novels since her teens, and fell in love with the paranormal after discovering Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. Her love of the dark worlds of vampires and witches, as well as her fascination with Greek mythology led her to create the Spellbound Series, an ongoing Paranormal Romance combining all of the above into tales of suspense with a little bit of humor in an Urban Fantasy setting.

A long time lover of reading and writing with a passion for a great story, James became discouraged by the complicated and arbitrary publishing process, James had initially set down her laptop and her hopes of being a writer. However, with the purchase of her first e-reader, James became re-energized by the new possibilities for an undiscovered author to reach the masses. Dusting off her keyboard she finally finished Bound to Remember, the first book of the Spellbound Series and self-published it. Energized and ambitious, James is now hard at work on both the Spellbound Series as well as the Fate Series, a paranormal romance about dreams and what happens if they come true.

Living in Southern California with her two beautiful children, James finds time to write in between her full-time job as a mother as well as her other full-time job as an HR manager, as well as her academic schedule as she studies for her Master’s degree which she hopes to complete in 2013. With the success of Bound to Remember, James hopes to continue to reach an audience that will allow her to leave her HR job and focus on her writing as a full time career.
