SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

Ladies like to ride me like a bucking bronco.
But a bullsh*t clause in a will changed everything.
My mission now: get a girl knocked up.
My reward: two billion dollars
Guess I better rope in the perfect baby mama.

My family’s oil empire left me a hefty inheritance.
One condition: conceive an heir by my next birthday.
Talk about a total mind f*ck.
But, then I laid my eyes on Bella and I knew she was the one.
A perfect balance of class, beauty and a sexy innocence.
She’s not afraid to tell this wild stallion to f*ck off.
And that couldn’t be more of a turn on.
Something tells me she’s got an inner cowgirl eager for a ride.

I just hope she’ll forgive me when she finds out I want to knock her up.

Quarterly Goals (Winter Edition)

Tags

, , , ,

quarter-goals-winter-edition

It’s been a while since I’ve made one of this blog post but I’ve decided it was time to give the Quarter Goals another try.

This time I have more categories to be aware of and get better in. It won’t be easy but I know I have to do this. I feel it’s even necessary for me to be happier in life.

HEALTH

A little over 35 days ago I started to use My Fitness Pal and portion control to try to lose weight. I’m 20 kilos over my optimal weight so I want to go down as much as I can in a way that will be sustainable for me.

I live with my parents and even though we eat homemade food almost every day, it’s not exactly the diet that anyone would follow to lose weight. My dad cooks and when he does I can’t say “I won’t eat your food” to him. So that’s why I started to control my portions at lunch and dinner.

My targets for this quarter are:

  • Keep using portion control.
  • Keep a record on MyFitnessPal of anything that goes into my mouth.
  • Don’t skip snacks or beverages.
  • Make healthy snacks instead of a piece of bread.
  • Exercise 4 days a week minimum.

In a little over 35 days, with almost no exercise, I’ve lost: 1.8 kgs; 2 cm of my waist; 2 cm of my hips; and 1 cm of my neck.

UNIVERSITY [JULY]

I started my first year in Accountancy in 2006. I’ve an extension now to finish my degree because I went over the 10 years my University gives to finish. That’s the reason why I have to do it, this year.

During the month of July I’ll have 3 final exams that I need to focus onto. After that, the next set of finals will be in December.

My objectives in this category are actually only one: Approve all 3 of those exams.

  • Metodología de la Investigación (Investigation Methodology)
  • Matemática Financiera III (Financial Mathematics)
  • Diseño de Sistemas Contables (Accounting System Design)

WRITING

Since July month is #OneBookJuly2017 I’m using a notebook to write down any story idea or information that pertains to my work in progress. The idea behind the paper and pen concept is that I can take it with me and use it without worry.

  • Don’t doubt. Use the damn notebook!
  • Write down at least 2 new ideas on paper every month.
  • Stop second guessing and write that short story that I want to write.
  • Keep working on my Work In Progress (outline it better if possible)

I’m usually doubting myself when it comes to my writing. That’s the reason why I don’t make much progress. I want to make progress.

BLOG

Working on the blog, not only posting, it’s been on my mind for months. I want to re-name the blog and make it self-hosted, and that’s driving me nuts. I keep waiting for the perfect moments to make the changes but there is never a perfect time.

Since I have this grand ideas for the blog. I think it’s appropriate to work towards that.

  • Publish a different blog post every week, in addition to the book reviews.
  • Work on the new name for the blog.
  • Look at hosting sites (read the fine print)
  • Make a logo and new header with the new name.
  • Revise my book review scheme to improve it.
  • Batch my blog post if possible.

YOUTUBE

This is my most neglected platform so far. That’s why I want to make something to change that, starting small because I have a problem with my face and the camera.

  • Publish one video a week.
  • Think about the book review channel idea (should I make it only audio or make casual book review videos?)
  • Look for 5 new video ideas every month.
  • Batch the videos if possible (this will be hard but it’s doable)

I’ve been toying with the idea of recording myself reviewing a book only on audio and making a channel about it. According to my friends, they love my audio messages on Whatsapp talking about books.

Do you have any goals for July? What are they?

What do you think? ShoulD I make a channel with book reviews on audio or casual videos?

Comment down bellow so we can start a conversation.

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

Her

I wanted to have a pity party of one when I went for that beer. I never imagined I would meet a dark and dangerous man. That man took me on the wildest ride of my life. Literally and Figuratively. He quickly became my entire world.

Him

I didn’t know I was looking for her. I saw her warming that bar stool and knew she would be mine. A man like me doesn’t deserve the likes of her. But damned if I didn’t take it.

Her

When we met for the first time we didn’t know that we already had a connection. A cruel game was being played, and we didn’t know the rules. Sam would save us, but at what cost? Sam was one of my main reasons for living. If he wasn’t in this world anymore, would I still want to be a part of it?

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

Fate deals us the cards, but we have to play them. Will destiny allow us a second chance?

This is my rifle, this is my gun,
the one in my pants, well that one’s for fun.
They call me the bad boy. The rebel. The player.
The one who’ll never fit their image of a perfect billionaire son.

My father hates me.
My brother despises me.
Even my mother has given up hope I’ll dedicate my life to the family business.

So I said f&ck it and left home to join the SEALs.
That pretty much ended my relationship with my family for good.
At least, I thought it did.

Until my perfect brother heartlessly divorced his beautiful, sinfully tempting wife.
Maybe it’s my army training, something we call loyalty, but that just doesn’t sit right with me.

So when she comes to me for help, I’m listening.
I never could have guessed what she’d ask.

She wants me to marry her! Make her mine!
So she can keep her daughter.

I didn’t ask for this.
But Kristen makes my soldier salute as soon as she walks in the room.
Her body is a heat-seeking missile aimed directly at my heart.

This mission is risky. Dangerous.
Maybe even lethal.

But all’s fair in love and war.

This is a Full-Length STANDALONE Billionaire Seal Romance novel, with an HEA and NO CLIFFHANGER. For a LIMITED TIME ONLY, this book also includes exclusive bonus content only available through this book!

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

Natalie should be off limits, but anything that walks through the door of my office is mine. I don’t care what her old man says. She’s ours!

Natalie

Dumped. Jobless. Fresh out of college and all my plans shot to hell. I hate going to my dad to ask for a job at his law office, but what can I do?

Then I realized who I was interviewing with. Gavin Ross. The man who’s filled my dreams for as long as I can remember.

Cocky. Arrogant. Muscled. Sexy. I’ve measured every man I know against him, and it doesn’t hurt that he has a sexy junior partner helping him run interviews. Talk about the most distracting interview of my life!

And there’s something about the way they look at me. Something that turns my legs to rubber and sets my body on fire. Something that says there’s a hell of a lot more to this job than taking dictation…

Gavin

She was off limits. She was supposed to be off at college. Only now here’s sexy Natalie freshly graduated darkening my doorstep looking for a job.

I’ve got a problem though. Because there’s a little tradition at the firm. We celebrate associates making partner by having a little fun with one of the sexy new assistants, and this one was supposed to be a treat for me and Craig to share.

Only now that I see Natalie standing there, now that I know she’s legal and looking at me with those bedroom eyes, I need her. I’m still going to share her, make her scream our names, but Natalie will be mine!

Legal is a delightfully dirty romantic novella about two sexy, cocky, demanding lawyers who risk the forbidden fruit for a chance with the boss’s daughter! Fresh out of college, Natalie’s going to learn just how much fun it is to be the center of attention for two of the hottest men she’s ever known! Total mfm with no m/m!

Steamy, sweet, short, and dirty with a happily ever after and no cheating just like you like it!

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

Hank Bartlett dreams of something more than his sleepy Ohio hometown, where the work is back-breaking and the money he makes goes straight to his family. He’s only 25—way too young to end up stuck in the same tiny town for the rest of his life… Especially when he’s the only gay guy in a 100-mile radius.

When he walks into The Spike on his first night in San Diego, a gorgeous older man catches his eye across the bar. But Ben turns out to be more than just a handsome stranger—he’s also kind, generous, and inspiring. And soon enough, Hank is head over heels.

Now if they could just figure out what to do about those pesky death threats…

“Get married and you’re a dead man…”

When Bennett’s father disowned him for being gay, Ben turned his back on his family’s wealth. He relied on his intelligence and drive to build a business and a life that he’s proud of. Ben refuses to be told what to do by an old bigot, and he’s definitely not interested in fulfilling a ridiculous marriage requirement just to inherit money he doesn’t want anyway.

So why the hell is he getting threats designed to keep him from the altar?

It was easier to ignore the threats when he was single and reeling from a nasty breakup. But that was before Ben fell for Hank—sweet, open-hearted, optimistic Hank who tugs at parts of Ben’s heart he didn’t even know existed. Suddenly, Ben isn’t quite so sour on romance after all. But the closer he gets to Hank, the worse the intimidation gets.

Whoever’s sending the threats will stop at nothing to break the two men up. Will Ben and Hank find a love to have and told hold, or will death do them part before they can even get started?

Love and Protect is a 75,000 word May-December gay romance set in urban California with hurt/comfort themes.

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

Private investigator Charlotte Davidson was born with three things: looks; a healthy respect for the male anatomy; and the rather odd job title of grim reaper. Since the age of five, she has been helping the departed solve the mysteries of their deaths so they can cross. Thus, when three lawyers from the same law firm are murdered, they come to her to find their killer.

In the meantime, Charley’s dealing with a being more powerful – and definitely sexier – than any spectre she’s ever come across before. With the help of a pain-in-the-ass skip tracer, a dead pubescent gangbanger named Angel, and a lifetime supply of sarcasm, Charley sets out to solve the highest profile case of the year and discovers that dodging bullets isn’t nearly as dangerous as falling in love.

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

What makes a romance novel a romance? How do you write a kissing book?

Writing a well-structured romance isn’t the same as writing any other genre—something the popular novel and screenwriting guides don’t address. The romance arc is made up of its own story beats, and the external plot and theme need to be braided to the romance arc—not the other way around.

Told in conversational (and often irreverent) prose, Romancing the Beat can be read like you are sitting down to coffee with romance editor and author Gwen Hayes while she explains story structure. The way she does with her clients. Some of whom are regular inhabitants of the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists.

Romancing the Beat is a recipe, not a rigid system. The beats don’t care if you plot or outline before you write, or if you pants your way through the drafts and do a “beat check” when you’re revising. Pantsers and plotters are both welcome. So sit down, grab a cuppa, and let’s talk about kissing books.
