I am so excited to have author, Elle Thorpe, on my blog today! She has a new book being released on 9/20 & I’m thrilled to be able to share this with you!
The cover and teaser of Only the Positive is hot and steamy! Definitely adding this to my TBR list on Goodreads!
Only the Positive, by Elle Thorpe
I made a mistake that might have ruined someone’s life. I’ve moved to Sydney to avoid the glares and the questions from the people back home, but there’s one thing I can’t run from—the guilt and pain that follows me relentlessly. All I can do is dull it with alcohol and casual sex. But then my new boss, Mr Dark and Delicious, deserted me, mid kiss, with my skirt hiked up and my shirt discarded on the alley floor. I should hate him―him and the secrets he’s keeping. But I can’t stay away. Because the pain and guilt he’s hiding mirror my own.
All she wanted was one night. That, I could do. I’m the king of casual. Love them and leave them, before they leave me. With chemistry off the scale, we couldn’t even make it home, both of us too impatient, ripping each other’s clothes off in the alleyway outside the bar. Then my phone buzzed, and one text message stopped everything. I couldn’t think. Couldn’t breathe. All I could do was run. I’m toxic, but I can’t tell her why. I can’t bear the look of horror I know would cross her face. But I also don’t know how to keep something so life altering from the woman I’m falling for. Not when I need her just to survive it.
Only the Positive will release on Amazon/Kindle Unlimited on September 20 and is available for preorder now! If you’re an iBooks, Nook or Kobo reader, you can grab it in the presale and get it two days early on September 18. It will be on these sites for less than 48hours, so if you’re a non-Amazon reader, make sure you grab it now.
Who are some of your favorite authors and books?
This is almost as hard as asking me to pick a favourite child! lol. But, Tillie Cole and her Hades Hangmen series (dark romance). JR Ward and her Black Dagger Brotherhood series (paranormal romance). Jennifer L Armentrout’s and her Wait for You Series (contemporary NA romance). They’re my top three, auto buy authors.
What’s your favorite genre to read?
I’ll read almost anything as long as there’s some sort of romance in there! I mostly read contemporary romance, but I love dark romance, paranormal romance, fantasy romance, New adult. I’m a sucker for a good dystopian or zombie apocalypse book as well, as long as there’s some sort of kissing in there somewhere!
What gives you inspiration for your books?
Only the Positive was born after I’d read a string of books where the characters were all, “oh, we can’t be together.” But there was actually no real reason they couldn’t be. Super weak conflict. I wanted to write a book where there was a REAL, huge reason for the characters to be kept apart. And I think Only the Positive really delivers on that. But don’t worry, it’s HEA guaranteed, they just have to fight hard to get it.
Other books have been inspired by dreams, or people I know. But most of the Only You series was inspired by the characters in Only the Positive. They developed their own personalities as i wrote and by the end, i was dying to give them all their own books.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
People that are always late. I can’t stand it. I’m early to everything.
Who is your favorite character in your books?
Low from Only the Positive. He’ll always be my main man. He’s my alpha male that gets brought to his knees by a huge, life changing event, right as he meets the woman of his dreams. He’s sexy and sweet and knows all the right things to say to make a girl swoon. I can’t wait for everyone to meet him when Only the Positive releases next week!
Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers and fans?
Thank you so much to each and every one of you. Taking a chance on a new author is always a risk, but I hope lots of you will give Only the Positive a try, either by picking it up in the preorder for 99c or by reading in Kindle Unlimited. And make sure you come join my readers group on Facebook! We have a ton of fun there and do lots of games and giveaways and you get behind the scenes details on my books and writing process. www. facebook.com/groups/ellethorpesdramallamas
