Releases on: 4th May2021

It’s my year of contemporary romances – across the genres.

I have read some amazing ones, and Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry sounds right up my alley – with a planner girl who finds herself blackmailed when her own lists for public viewing, she has no choice but to team up with the last boy she should.

Sounds Interesting, doesn’t it? I thought so too *winks*

Another collision of the virtual life with real life – a blogger finds his virtual life in tethers when it is revealed that his “romance advice for transgenders” blog isn’t as real as he made it out to be.
