Author Guest / March 10, 2020

Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-ReaderMatch” where we introduce you to authors as a reader you may fall in love with. It’s our great pleasure to present Jus Accardo! Writes: Pulse-pounding Young Adult fiction that will make you linger on the edge of your seat. Have a savage love of unfailingly loyal friendships, intense love that will stick with you for days after reading the last page, and action that will have you holding your breath? We might be Book Soul Mates. About: Music-loving caffeine junkie with a fierce love of books, dogs, photography, and ink. Low maintenance and no real-world drama as I’m usually absorbed in the lives and trials of fictional characters. I’m dog obsessed–but this can only benefit you because, dogs. Shy at first but get to know me and we’ll be friends for life. What I’m looking for in my ideal reader match: Someone who thrives on love stories with a paranormal, scifi, or fantasy twist. Appreciators of snarky, sometimes dark, humor. Lovers of strong, independent girls that fight for what they want and those they love. Admirers of quirky, flawed characters that have room to grow….

Gemma’s Number One is her dad, John. Since her mother died when she was a teenager, the two of them have relied on each other. They’re more than father and daughter. They’re business partners and best friends. Brendan could stand to rely on a few more people. He’s stubborn and insists on shouldering every burden himself. But…
