  1. Tell us a little about yourself!

My Name is Liz, and I’ve been blogging since February. I’m a registered nurse, I’ve been married for almost 6 years, and I am a total bookaholic! (Go figure, huh?) I love anything to do with the 80’s…especially the music and fashion. I’m completely addicted to gummy bears and coffee! I am also just released my debut novel, In A Heartbeat, Book 1 of The Shameful Regret Series in Novemeber.

  1. What inspired you/caused you to start your book blog?

I’ve always loved to read, and talk about the books that I read. I was writing reviews for another blog for a few months, and I decided that I wanted to branch out and start my own. Romance Addiciton began as a place for me to post reviews of the books that I read on my own, but I have loved every minute and every single person that I have made connections with since.

  1. What is your favorite part of running one?

I’d have to say the people I’ve “met” since I started Romance Addiciton. I have made some amazing friendships with people all over the world. I love talking to other bloggers, authors and readers. I enjoy getting sneak peaks into some of the behind the scenes action that goes into writing a book.

  1. What’s your favorite place and time to read? At home in bed at 2am? Out and about at a coffee shop?

I can read anywhere, anytime. My favorite place to read is curled up on the couch with my zebra snuggie and a big cup of coffee. I actually get up about an hour early before I have to go to work, just so I can have some quiet time with my Kindle.

  1. Kindle or regular book? How did you feel about the Kindle to book transition? Did you fight it at first or dive right in?

I’m a Kindle Addict! I dove right into having a Kindle to read on. I still love my paperbacks though. I buy hard copies of my favorite books just so I can have them a little “closer” to me.

  1. Favorite book of all time?

My favorite book of all time would definitely have to be Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell.

  1. Coolest author you ever got to meet/work with?

I have 2 acutally! The coolest authors I have had the pleasure to work with have become 2 of my best friends and closest confidants. S.K. Hartley and Glenna Maynard. These ladies and I talk at least 20 times a day, and they are like family to me now.

  1. Tell us about the woman (women) behind the mask? Err blog!

It’s just me! Like I said, I’m a nurse full time, and a new author. My husband is VERY understanding with my “book” life. I’m pretty open and easy to get along with. I love my job, and I love reading. When I don’t have my nose buried in my Kindle, or locked away in the writing cave, I spend time with my hubby and family. College football and hiking are also favorite past times.

  1. Do you prefer a bunch of quick, sweet stand-alone reads or a long drawn out series of epic proportions?

It depends, really. I love a good series. Cliffhangers don’t bother me at all (well…at the time I’m reading them, they drive me up the wall, but I love the angst that comes with them). I also like being able to read a stand alone and get my HEA.

  1. Last book you read and how did you rate it?

The last book I read was an ARC of Remy by Katy Evans that I had the amazing opportunity of being part of the blog tour. It was 5 Sexy and Amazing Stars!

  1. Aside from reading, what else do you do with your time? Or, like me, do things book-related pretty much sum up your life?

Bookish things are most of my time aside from work. Like I said, college football, hiking and hanging out with my family.

  1. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

I would love to go back to Italy. I love my Italian heritage, and I the 2 weeks I spent over there when I got married wasn’t near enough! Not to mention the food and the sexy Italian men!

  1. If you could meet any author, who would it be?

Molly McAdams! I need to meet the woman that introduced me to the character that made me understand and embrace the concept of “Book Boyfriends!” I love and miss Chase dearly!

  1. If you could go on a date with any fictional male character, who would it be, from what book?

Logan White from S.K. Hartley’s Finding You! I have claimed Logan as my “Book Husband” and if I could go on a date with that sexy man, I think I could die happy.

  1. Who is a female character you could see yourself being best friends with?

That’s tough. My favorite female character would have to be Rylee Thomas from the Driven Trilogy by K. Bromberg. She is strong and funny as hell! I think she would be a blast to hang out with.

  1. Is there a fiction genre you just can’t seem to stand or get into? For me, heavy science fiction is just a no-go.

I don’t think I could ever really get into fantasy all that much. Paranormal is a stretch for me, but there have been several that I have fallen in love with.

  1. When I say favorite book cover, what’s the first one to come to mind – since I know there probably can’t be just one?

The first cover that popped in my mind as a favorite is Tangled by Emma Chase. A half naked man lying in only a sheet covering the “important” parts…SEXY!

  1. What was the series in childhood that got you hooked on reading? For me, my mom forced me to read Little House on the Prairie for school which I ended up loving, and then I found the Redwall series and I just never stopped!

I read all of the Babysitter Club books. They started my love of reading. Then I quickly moved onto others.

  1. Were you The Quiet Girl Who Was Always Reading, or did you mainly just read at home in secret?

I don’t think I could ever be described as quiet. I read all the time, but I was always pretty outgoing.

  1. Do you always read several books at once, or just stick to one at a time? The running joke in my family when I was young was asking me how many books I was reading (usually at least five) and laughing when I could recite the plot for every single one!

I tend to read 2 or 3 at a time. My friends think it’s crazy that I can keep all the plot lines straight and I can basically describe the entire book even months later.

  1. Favorite book to movie adaption?

I loved Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons and The DaVinci Code books and I think the movies were well done.

Liz is actually a budding author and has shared her synopsis and links to her debut novel, so be sure to add it to your TBR list!!!
For the past eight years I haven’t been living, just … Existing.The pain, the guilt, and the shame I carry have been locked away deep inside me for so long that it’s impenetrable, until him. Until Connor Reeves.

With a sexy smile and seductive eyes, the bad boy rocker walked right into my life without warning, and now the walls I built that hid all of my grief for so long are now crumbling at my feet.

Now I am left wondering if it’s possible that just as life can cause pain, it can also heal wounds in a heartbeat.

Guardian Blurb

Lyla Evans just wants to be left alone; to fly under the radar and not attract attention. After seventeen years, she knows how the game is played. Her parents are hardly ever home, and when they do show up, they’re quick to anger and even quicker with their fists. With foster care comes the threat of being separated from her two younger siblings, and Lyla would die before allowing that to happen. She’s learned to keep her head down and depend on no one but herself and God to get by.

When a strange man starts paying too much attention to her and her siblings, showing up to rescue them and then disappearing without a trace, Lyla begins to panic that everything she’s been hiding is about to come out. But as she slowly becomes friends with Rafael and even trusts him with her deepest fears, Lyla learns he has secrets far bigger than her own that will turn everything in her world upside down.

In this story of abuse and rescue, love and faith, angels and demons, an unlikely friendship grows into a fantastical love story appealing and appropriate for readers young and old alike.
