Reds Review:

I’ve had the honor of following Luna Lopez from the beginning. Starting with her debut novella, First Kiss. Her debut was just a taste of the spectacular writing she has unleashed with her new full length novel, Where My Heart Lies.

Blogging has given me the opportunity to step outside of my self-imposed reading boundaries. Luna’s stories of lesbian relationships have introduced me to a romance genre I would never have searched out on my own. Continue reading “Reds Review: Where My Heart Lies by Luna Lopez”

Reds Review: First Kiss by Luna Lopez

What happens if taking that first kiss ruins everything they have? What if that first kiss makes everything better?

First Kiss: A Lesbian Short StoryFirst Kiss: A Lesbian Short Story by Luna Lopez

Have you ever started reading a book just knowing in your heart how the story will end?
Well, you might not get the outcome you expected when reading First Kiss. I know I didn’t.

Luna Lopez has written a sweet short story that touched my heart and made me think about love.

First Kiss is a story of two women but let’s back up. It’s a story of two people. Two people who have been friends for a long time and now see their friendship could be more. That’s a pretty risky thing to do regardless of their gender.

What happens if taking that first kiss ruins everything they have?
What if it ends the special connection which has grown over the years?
What if that first kiss makes everything better?
Does the fact these two people are women create other complications?

Will there be acceptance or rejection? First they must accept or reject the idea of more than friends themselves. How will their decision be accepted or rejected by family and friends?

Is the risk of losing it all worth taking a chance on love?

These were the questions and thoughts running through my mind while reading and even after I closed the book. I thought about how Ms. Lopez told this story and all of the ways it could have ended. I looked inside myself and tried to see all sides of this story. Like I said at the start, it touched my heart.

No spoilers in my review. You will have to read it yourself to find out more.

I am looking forward to reading Ms. Lopez’s debut novel, Where the Heart Lies.

💛Blurb
Kara and Yasmeen have been best friends since high school.
Now in their early twenties, they’re as radically different to one another in personality as they’ve always been.
Both have overcome the loss of their respective mothers, in albeit different circumstances which helped cement the bond between them.
Kara is a working class, out and proud lesbian, while Yasmeen is a spoiled, yet dutiful middle class Muslim on the verge of an arranged marriage.
Realizing Kara is the girl for her, Yasmeen is hell bent on living the life she wants, even if that means going against her fathers wishes.
Kara doesn’t need a declaration of love and is happy to remain on the sidelines, but Yasmeen will do whatever it takes to be with the one she loves.

Willow Olivia Walker is a newly single university student heading home for the summer holidays.

Initially dismayed to discover her parents have hired the beautiful Georgia as a live-in nanny for her two younger sisters, she treats her with contempt, but upon further reflection, finds a kindred spirit.

Discovered by her over-bearing mother in flagrante with Georgia, she packs her bags and returns to Cambridge, intent on spending the summer preparing for the academic year ahead.

Professor Francesca Marten is at a crossroads in her own life.

Married for twenty years and mother to two children, Francesca had buried a part of herself, deep inside, that is now fighting to come to the forefront.

A chance meeting between Willow and Francesca is the start of a relationship that extends beyond the confines of student and teacher.

In Francesca, Willow sees a lover who knows what she wants, but for Francesca, Willow is the epitome of the young, carefree girl she left behind twenty years ago.

Is their relationship a meeting of souls destined to be together, or is the thrill of forbidden love the only driving force?

Red’s Author Chit Chat with Joz Maxel

My Absolution by Joz Maxel
Have you ever loved a woman with your heart and soul, just to watch her slip away?
I had her.
I broke her.
I left a piece of me behind.
My best friend put her back together.
Cherished her.
Loved her the way she deserved.
My time for absolution has come.
And I’ll stop at nothing until I get it.
Now I’ll have to fight my way back to what I left behind.

It’s time to share another Red’s recommended author with you. Joz Maxel’s books were introduced to me when I first started my blog in January 2018. I have became a fan instantly. Let’s find out a bit more about Joz.

Hi Joz, Thanks for agreeing to stop by today. Let’s start with what Genre you write.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

1) When did you start writing ?

Joz: October of 2016

Red: Wow not too long ago. I’m glad I was able to find you. You know I love My Absolution. I have fangirled over you for the past year.

2) Do you have a favorite book that you have written?

Joz: Probably My Absolution because it was to prove to myself I could do it…and I did. And people actually like it.

Red: I am so glad you wrote it! LOVE THAT BOOK!

3) How about a favorite character from your books?

Joz: I don’t have a favourite because I love them all.

Red: OK, I will let that answer slide. It’s a good thing I love you or I would make you choose.

4) Do you have a specific way you choose the characters names?

Joz: Names are from characters in my favourite movies and kids’ names are usually what I had in the running to name my kids.

Red: What a great way to use those favorite names. I always wanted a girl name Aurora Rose. I have 4 sons. Aurora would not have worked for them. Maybe if I ever write a book I can use it.

4) What is your favorite part of being a published author?

Joz: Interacting with people all over the world.

Red: Like me.

5) Where is the strangest place you had a book or character idea come to you? Continue reading “Red’s Author Chit Chat with Joz Maxel”
