Review/Synopsis:

Review:
This is Greek mythology, magic, and coming of age all rolled into one. It’s the perfect blend of storytelling for lovers of fantasy to get lost in and I loved the entire thing!

Kat – Katrina Summers – has always felt different, but couldn’t explain why or how mysterious things happened around her until she was sent to live with her grandmother after her mother passed away. Losing her mother was tough enough, but finding out her grandmother, whom she’d never met, is the founder of a small beach town and the Summers name is basically attached to everything, well for Kat, it was a lot to take in.

Her grandmother, Rose Summers, is a woman with a lot of power, but just how much power Rose Summers truly has might not be the biggest mystery Kat has to solve while she’s living in Florida. She is surrounded by questions that she doesn’t even know to ask, and her frustration grows as the secrets mount around her. Kat spends time seeking answers to her past, the town, and secrets that continually pop up, but could the answers to those things be intertwined more closely than she ever thought possible?

On top of secrets, Kat finds an instant connection with Alec Stone, a popular boy who is sweet and particularly nice to the new girl in town. Kat also finds herself in the path of Johnny Pierce who instantly dislikes her, a feeling Kat is more familiar with from the town she used to live in. Johnny dislikes Kat upon first sight and while she doesn’t understand why, she tries to stay out of his way. These two boys couldn’t be more different than night and day and as much as Kat would like to stay away from one of them, she seems to cross his path no matter where she goes.

Probably my favorite parts are how Greek Mythology weaves in and out through the entire story (I’m such a geek for mythology and folklore). Like a lot of Greek love tragedies, Kat’s story is shaping up to be one fraught with danger, peril, sacrifice, loss, and of course epic love.

Cursed is just the first story in this epic ride with lots more to come and I can hardly wait to see what happens and who is truly going to make it out alive.

Katrina Summer always knew she was different. Her fiery temper seems to perpetually land her in hot water, making her an outcast among her peers. When tragedy strikes and sheโ€™s sent to live with her only remaining family in the tiny coastal town of Apollo Beach, Katrina starts counting down the days until her eighteenth birthday.โฃโฃ
โฃโฃ
Only then will she finally be free.โฃโฃ
โฃโฃ
As Katrina learns the legends of her Ancient Greek ancestors, secrets from her heritage are exposedโ€”secrets that her mother purposefully concealed. Her only solace is found in Alec Stone, the gorgeous guy next door. With his devastatingly charming smile, his persistent flirtation, and a love that sparks from the flames of friendship, he offers her a much-needed escape from the turmoil.โฃโฃ

As powerful forces threaten the lives in Apollo Beach, Katrina canโ€™t escape the evocative world of mythological enchantment and evil prophecies that lurk around every corner.โฃโฃ

New Release – Rain by A.L. Woods

Rain by A.L. Woods is now live!


New Release June 30, 2021

Allegra
I’m afraid of nothing and everything.
When that car accident changed my life twelve years ago–I thought it was over.
Dom saved me.
I used to think that I could save him, too.
He was the only one who could see me.
But then Nate came along and saw me, too.
One is my past.
Only one will be my future.
I want them both–only one of them can keep me.
Eventually, I’ll have to choose.
Even if it burns me alive.

Dom
A car accident nearly killed her.
So the monster became what she needed: a hero,
But little girls grow up to whisper I love you’s and forever’s.
I should have never touched my best friend’s little sister.
When my actions threatened her safety, I did the only thing I could think of: I married her behind her older brother’s back.
A fire and a five-year prison sentence changed everything.
She threw away our vows, so I plotted my revenge.
There was only one thing I didn’t factor in upon my release.
Him.

Nate
I’ve spent the last eleven years on the run from my past.
I bed unsuspecting women and rob them in their sleep.
My mistake was underestimating Allegra.
She beats me at my own game.
When circumstances find me at her mercy, I’m determined to erase the tattoo of her pretty hazel eyes and her body under mine from my memory.
But Allegra’s fire isn’t easily forgettable.
And I’m not the only one who feels that way.
We both want her.
Only one of us can keep her.
May the best man win.

Meet A.L. Woods

A.L. Woods is an author of rollercoaster romances, caffeine aficionado, and collector of Sailor Moon paraphernalia.

She lives 40 minutes west of Toronto, Ontario with her partner, Michael, and their 8lb larger-than-life miniature dachshund, Maia-whom they lovingly refer to as their ‘doghter.’

Woods can be found holed away in her office writing her next novel with a bowl of Nibs within arm’s reach. When she’s not writing, she’s likely belting out an ad-libbed song, emotionally investing in a fictional bad boy with a strong jawline and fluency in sarcasm or inventing fresh ways to procrastinate.

She believes that burritos should be in their own food group, loves the fall, winged liner, and listening to metalcore at an offensive level.
