This week on Nitty Gritty Romance, we are hosting the blog tour for GYBE
by Kristi M. Turner
Genre: YA Contemporary Fiction
Release Date: August 28th 2016
Summary from Goodreads:
Nicole is an 18-year-old, juvenile delinquent who desperately wants to take control of her life but must find a way to overcome her own self-sabotage and a judge who won’t easily let her escape her past. She keeps food on her plate and clothes on her back by stealing. It is far from the life she wants, but she has known little kindness in her life and, therefore, gives little back. When Judge Newton charges her for the first time as an adult, Nicole recognizes a separating path: She can stay on her path to destruction or she can accept the unexpected generosity of the Kutcher family, whose house she is charged with burglarizing.
Child psychologist, Cynthia Kutcher, believes she can help Nicole confront her anger and build back the self-worth she lost when her father abandoned her to a drunken uncle after her mother’s death.
Along the way to building a more valuable life, Nicole meets Keagan, an affluent young man with whom she begins an often overwhelming love affair despite the conflicts their disparate pasts bring.

(The Heart of the Ocean #3)
by Lorraine M.L.M. !!!!
SeQuence Entangled (The Heart of the Ocean #3)
Genre: YA Fantasy/Romance
Release Date: July 6th 2017
Politics or Love? Prophecy or Truth? Dreams or Reality?
What happens when the Sequences get entangled?
Back in her home realm of Tuscania, Alessia’s powers are stronger than ever. Not only that, she and Dante make it official and get engaged, but their bliss is short-lived when Alessia wakes from a nightmare screaming a prophecy.
Her words, “Protect the womb—safeguard the seed,” make no sense. Despite her surreal glow, she certainly isn’t pregnant. As the dreams increase and a strange voice breaches her personal shield, Alessia fears she’s losing her mind. What if her people declare her insane just like her family did back on Earth? Alessia keeps her growing turmoil a secret, even from Dante. She can’t distract him just as he’s stepped up to be the leader he was born to be.
Dante quickly discovers being a leader isn’t easy. Tuscania desperately needs the help of the dreamers of house Regai-Rallias, but they will only offer aid if Dante honours an agreement he made seven moon-years ago to marry Lavia.
Torn between politics and love, prophecy and truth, dreams and reality, Alessia and Dante’s Sequence of Hearts will be tested like never before as they struggle to save their kingdom and themselves.
SeQuence Entangled is the third installment in the enchanting Young Adult Fantasy/Romance Series; The Heart of the Ocean.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Reading!
As an author of YA/NA I get asked this question a lot. I was asked at a recent book club—why are so many adult readers hooked on YA/NA? It seems YA/NA has a really large following of adults over thirty, forty, fifty, and beyond. What’s the reason?
I think it all comes down to feelings. The emotions in YA/NA can be so raw—the feelings are so there. Nothing is tempered by adulthood.
Although my recent YA/NA novel, The Letting, takes place in a dystopian world where blood donations are mandatory, even contemporary YA/NA—that which is missing the element of fantasy—is often more freeing and liberating than a “mature” book. YA/NA love may overcome great obstacles, but the characters usually don’t have to worry about paying the electricity bill or grocery shopping. YA/NA novels offer a welcome escape.
Personally, I love YA/NA and the freedom it offers the writer and the reader.
I also love YA/NA heroes and heroines because although they may be heading for certain death or the end of their civilization, they always remember to express their love. Like when Phoenix wrote this note to Ronnie (Veronica) on their favorite beach.
BTW: This “Phoenix loves Ronnie” picture was taken at the actual waterfront where Phoenix and Ronnie fell in love.
