Unlucky in Love
Publication date: January 30th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Lucky in Love.
That’s the name of the dating app I picked, hoping to find Mr. Better Than Average so I can hold off planning my future as a cat lady.
I’ve been distracted eyeballing a tall, dark, and handsome Latin hottie who works in the library with me. He is way out of my league, and a woman has needs if you know what I mean.
Finding a man shouldn’t be hard when all I have to do is swipe left or right. It’ll weed out the slimy men who have Bad Date written all over them.
Yeah, I’m learning quickly that I’m rather unlucky in love after all. The men I pick need warning labels, kissing lessons, and a good talking-to about manners.
Should I throw in the towel, or will this series of bad dates be exactly what I need to win Mr. Right?
KITTY'S BOOK SPOT!
Author Interview with Author, A.J. Renee
- What was your favorite book in your youth?
I loved reading the Babysitter’s Club.
- Do you write to music or make music playlists for your works?
It depends on my mood. I created my first playlist for Unlucky in Love.
- Your degrees and education are quite impressive. What started the urge to write?
Thanks. I’ve always had a creative streak but never imagined I’d be a writer. My best friend passed suddenly, and a story popped in my head that wouldn’t shut up until I wrote it. Widower’s Aura was the product of my grief and it set me on my current path.
- What are you hoping your writing/this book will impress upon your readers?
Unlucky in Love is about hope. Izzy left the dating game and decides to give things a try again. The outcome isn’t what she expects and just as she considers giving up she’s surprised. Life is full of surprises. You don’t always find love where you expect it or when you want it. Don’t lose hope.
- Will you share something with our readers that you have never shared with anyone else?
I’m a pretty open person so this is hard! Not a clever fact but no one knows… Izzy’s boss in Unlucky in Love was inspired by my old boss doing that same job.
- Do you have another genre you want to write but have not tried yet?
I love reading romance novels, so I don’t see myself leaving the genre as a writer. Maybe one day an idea will form for a novel in Horror?
- What most influences your books?
Life. People I meet or see spurn the ideas. Sometimes out on a run something will come out of nowhere and I’m forced to stop and jot it down in my phone.
- Where is a fan best to find you online?
I’m on a variety of social media, but I’m the most active on Facebook or my reader group, St. Fleur Belles.
AJ Renee is the author behind the St. Fleur series, Beauty Unmasked, Winter’s Surprise, Surviving Paris, and Finding Love at the Falls…. She’s a military wife and mother to three young girls. She graduated from the University of Central Florida with her Master of Science in Criminal Justice and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology while working at the library.
She loves to write steamy romance with suspense and a happily ever after. When she isn’t writing or interacting with her readers, you can find her spending time with her family or reading. AJ enjoys traveling, researching family history, and all things New Orleans.
