Author Spotlight + Release Day Blitz !!!!!!!

Today is a very HAPPY day here on HEA BOOK SHELF!!!!

For starters, we are spotlighting a very special author.....
Cassandra P. Lewis. 
You see, this very awesome lady was the FIRST Author to EVER ask me for a Review. Hell, I wasn't even a Blogger!!!! She messaged me on Facebook saying she wasn't a crazy person (true story) and that based on my reviews on Amazon/Goodreads, she thought I'd enjoy her books. When I saw that, I freaked!! I mean, that had never happened to me before! So of course, after doing my weird happy dance and screaming, I replied and agreed to read her books. A few weeks after, I decided to launch my blog. Fast forward to few months later, and here we are today. THIS is why I decided to post her Author Spotlight TODAY.... on my birthday.

But that's not all..... 

Today, BECAUSE it's my birthday, Cassandra decided to RELEASE HER LATEST NOVEL!!!!! SQUEEE!!!

Now, HOW COOL IS THAT!?!?!?!?! *faints*

So basically, we're celebrating three things. 
 - Author Cassandra P. Lewis
- The RELEASE of "Love is"
- My birthday!!!!


Meet Author Cassandra P. Lewis!!!

Isn't she freaking cool????!!!! LOVE HER!!! :)

Here's her bio:

I was born in Birmingham, UK in 1984, 1st June (same day as Marilyn Monroe!)
I have 3 sisters and 2 brothers, although 1 of my brother’s passed away in 1993. I have 3 nephews, 2 nieces and a perfectly healthy obsession with my dog Busby. I may or may not refer to him as my first born!
I love the faces of dogs, they bring me genuine joy. I love tattoos, loud music with a heavy bassline and alcohol … no shame!

She’s needs inspiration and decides to look for it on the other side of the world.

With best friend Pippa in tow, Rosie sets off for three weeks in Thailand in search of sunshine, relaxation and inspiration. But she gets more than she bargained for when she runs into the arrogant Jackson James, a travel writer with a lust for life and beautiful women.

The perpetual bachelor, JJ refuses to get close enough to anyone to fall for them, but Rosie has him hooked from day one. He fights an internal battle daily between the growing feelings for the beautiful red head and his decision to never settle down.

Will Rosie ever find the inspiration that she’s looking for? 
Will she get her man?
Only time will tell which side of Jackson will win.

Release Day Blitz!!

and now...
Cassandra's NEW NOVEL 



After years of kissing frogs, neither Rafael or Matthew are on the lookout for their prince but when their siblings cause their paths to cross, fate steps in...After all, everyone deserves a happy ever after!

5 STARS!!!

"After all, everyone deserves a happy ever after!"

Let me start off by telling you that this was my first experience reading m/m romance!!! WOW! I was blown away! Cassandra did a marvelous job portraying a truly BEAUTIFUL love story. I absolutely adored Rafe and Mathew!!!!!!!  ♥

"Love is" is a spin-off from the Mr Write Trilogy. Rafe and Mathew were my favorite secondary characters and I was SO HAPPY when I heard they were getting their own book. Timeline wise, this book takes place around the same time as the Mr. Write Trilogy. So yes, we see Jackson and Rosie and the rest of the gang. I do suggest that you read the Trilogy BEFORE this book since it contains a few spoilers regarding Rosie and Jackson's story. However, "Love is" can be read as a stand alone.

"I had to kiss a lot of frogs before I found my prince."

My heart melted and broke for Mathew and Rafe multiple times while reading this book. From the moment they met, they felt an undeniable attraction and amazing connection. As the got to know each other, their feelings quickly got genuinely stronger. Their relationship was SO SO SO beautiful. At first, I was a bit scared as to how I'd react to a m/m romance, but I'm glad I chose THIS book as my first experience. My heart smiled for Rafe and Mathew as they overcame their hardships and built a life together. 

"I love you, Rafe, you're the best thing that's ever happened to me."

"They are the epitome of the word soulmates"

Rafe and Mathew were two exceptional characters. Things weren't always easy for them but I swear, together they could go against the world and in the end, come out stronger. They were THAT amazing. The things they said to each other made me swoon BIG TIME. They were each other's prince charming!!!! I mean.... WOW. How beautiful is that? There were also some pretty funny scenes. ALL the characters had an incredible chemistry that seemed to REAL and super natural.

Cassandra did a PERFECT job portraying the concept of absolute, true love. I could not be happier about how this book turned out. 
I HIGHLY recommend you buy this book.

" have shown me what love really is. You have shown me that there is no greater feeling than waking up next to that one person that means more to you than anything or anyone else in the world. You have shown me how big the human heart can really be and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life by your side."
