Millions of people witnessed Emma Taylor’s first kiss—a kiss that needed twelve takes and four camera angles to get right. After spending years performing on cue, Emma can’t help but wonder if any part of her life is real anymore . . . particularly her romances. She’s been burned by heartthrobs (and the press) one too many times, but there’s something about Emma’s co-star on her new TV show Coyote Hills that is irresistible.Jake Elliott is gorgeous, smart and actually cares about Emma’s charitable foundation. But she’s sworn off on-set relationships. They always end badly . . . don’t they? 

This third novel in the deliciously fun If Only romance line proves that the best kinds of love stories don’t follow a script.

Blog Tour: EREN by Simon P. Clark

by Simon P. Clark
Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks
Release Date: September 23, 2014
People are keeping secrets from Oli - about where his father is, and why he hasn't come to join them at his uncle's house in the country.

But Oli has secrets too.

He knows what lives in the attic. Eren - part monster, part dream, part myth. Eren who always seems so interested, who always wants to hear more about Oli's life. Eren, who needs to hear stories to live, and will take them from Oli, no matter the cost.

*The ARC was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.*

When Oli has to stay with his Mom in the countryside with her Uncle and Aunt without his Dad, his whole world change. Nobody wants to tell him why his Dad isn’t with them and why are they really leaving London for the countryside. He met other people throughout the story, Em and Tak. But then aside from other people, he found someone or something that lurks in their attic, Eren. He is neither a human nor an animal but is hungry for stories.  

It has been a great journey reading Eren. Simon Clark has this talent of pulling the readers with his words and bringing the whole story right in front of you. I pictured every word written in this book, from the places they went to the stories they speak. I find Oli and Eren’s relationship quite fascinating. They have this kind of pull and push connection to each other. Eren needs Oli in order to live more stories while Oli needs Eren to have someone that tells him the truth. The whole storytelling thing makes me happy, of course, but Simon brings storytelling in an uncanny, abstract way that will maybe creep you out or takes you to finish the whole book to its end. 

One thing that I love in this book other than its premise was the illustrations, a glimpse on each Oli’s antics. This book is very different from any other book that I’ve read, Eren and the inevitable conclusion. God, that ending I actually look for another chapter to realized that it is really the end of the story and that’s what happened to Oli. To sum up everything, I liked the book and recommend this if you want something out of ordinary, if you want stories…
