Spotlight and Giveaway: When I Think of You

Today we are pleased to feature Myah Ariel's debut rom-com, When I Think of You. This second chance romance just released this week and it sounds exciting! We are loving the cover art too. Thanks to Berkley, we have one copy to give away!

Does anyone else have a Janet Jackson song in their head right now, or is that just a Gen X thing?

Kaliya Wilson has paid her dues. But all the years behind the reception desk at a flashy film studio have only pushed her movie-making dreams further out of reach. That is, until a surprise reunion presents an opportunity that could make her career, or break her heart…a second time. 

It’s been seven years since Kaliya’s whirlwind college romance with Danny Prescott went up in flames. While her passions have stalled, his career is taking off. So when the hot shot director reappears to offer her a job on his next production, it’s a shock to the system. Working with Danny may recapture the intensity of their film school days, but trusting him again won’t come as easily. 

As the pair allows themselves the openness and vulnerability to entrust their deepest truths to each other, the possibility of a true connection draws ever closer. But when Hollywood politics and scandal threaten to sink the production and her career, Kaliya may have to risk everything to do what’s right—even if it means letting go of the second chance love of a lifetime.

“Myah Ariel breathes hope and longing into second chance romance, handles grief and loss with a deft, careful hand, and ignites the pages of this stunning debut with explosive chemistry. We are lucky to have this booming new voice in romance.” 
—Kennedy Ryan, USA Today bestselling author of Before I Let Go

"Myah Ariel's When I Think of You is a sparkling debut that had me turning pages into the night. Ariel crafts a thoughtful look at personal and professional vulnerability in an often unforgiving world, with characters who burn bright for their individual passions—and their passion for each other. I loved Kaliya and Danny and their shared determination to build something new from the past that shaped them." 
—Kate Clayborn, author of Georgie, All Along
"I loved this book from page one! A funny, engaging, poignant love story about personal growth, forgiveness, and second chances. When I Think of You is a winner!" 
—Farrah Rochon, New York Times bestselling author of The Hookup Plan

Sneakers - movie from 1998
Robert Redford leads an all-star cast in one of the most satisfying suspense films! Computer expert Martin Bishop (Redford) heads a team of renegade hackers - including a former CIA employee (Sidney Poitier), a gadgets wizard (Dan Aykroyd), a young genius (River Phoenix) and a blind soundman (David Strathairn) - who are routinely hired to test security systems. But Bishop's past comes back to haunt him when government agents blackmail the "sneakers" into carrying out a covert operation: tracking down an elusive black box. Along with his former girlfriend (Mary McDonnell), bishop's team retrieves the box and makes a stunning discovery - the device can break into any computer system in the world. With factions from all sides willing to kill for the powerful box, Bishop and his team embark on their most dangerous assignment ever.
