Interview with Lan LLP, author of FINDING OUR FOREVER with a review and giveaway too

Author Info

Over a long year ago, I picked up a pen and wrote the first sentence of a fantasy that I’ve imagined ever since I was a daydreaming little girl—minus the steamy parts of course. That initial sentence was the seed that grew into my flowering romance book, “Beginning with Forever.” With all my heart, I wrote, rewrote, edited, re-edited and now, I’m finally ready to share it with all of you. My one and only aspiration for this book is to have readers embrace my story and characters with their heart. If I can make someone laugh till their gut hurts, hate with vengeance, cry till their eyes dry out, fall in love all over again, drool over the hero or feel any other emotions, than I’ve succeeded my goal.

I’m the sappiest person in the world when it comes to romance. Don’t laugh! I believe in love at first sight, Prince Charming or Mr. Hot Billionaire in my book, and happy endings. In my heart, every women deserves all three, and they will when they lose themselves in my books. Your fantasy can become your reality with just the flip of a page, so come join me.

Here is what she shared with me: 

What part of writing do you find the most challenging? most enjoyable? The most challenging part of being a romance writer for me is writing the steamy sex scenes. It has to be done tastefully but edgy and hot of course. I find myself blushing sometimes after I read them, hoping my friends will not tease me. The most enjoyable part would be the creative aspect. I can control anyone’s destiny; make them good or evil, charming or revolting, etc…

If you weren’t an author, what would you expend your passion on? I would be a florist, fashion/interior designer, or photographer. I love them all.

What is your favorite season? favorite holiday? I love Spring- it’s always a fresh start for me with new growth outside after the cold winter. My favorite holiday has always been Christmas. I love decorating and the warm feel of family coming together.

Hardback, paperback, ebook or audio book? If you asked me this question two years ago, I would say anything paper tangible, but now I’m and ebook hardcore fan all the way.

Are you more likely to wear a skirt or pants? I’m a prissy girl. I love my skirts, but I also love my jeans as much.

What is your least favorite chore? Scrubbing the toilet…hate it!!!! 

Favorite T. V. show? celebrity? I am a fan of almost all of HBO’s movie series. Game of Throne, The Boardwalk Empire.

How do you feel about football? Do you have a favorite team? I grew up with a single mom who never had any interest in sports so I don’t really love it. I would say I’m a Colts fan because I’m from Indiana.

What is your favorite beverage? Fruity iced teas.

What is your favorite food to eat or to cook? I love pasta. Anything in a buttery sauce will do just fine for me.

Thank you for letting me interrogate you! You’re welcome and thank you for being a part of my book blog tour. XXXX’s Lan LLP

Tragedy Strikes Again

Now weaved into Carson Bradley's web of boundless wealth and pharmaceutical rivalries, Lillian Ly is altering the course of her bright academic future. She’s determined to follow the beat of her devoted heart even after a devastating loss she'd suffered as a result of a deliberate accident.  With two missing researchers whose survival is based on a drug formula that Carson is unable to deliver, he fears the kidnappers will stop at nothing to get what they want—meaning Lillian’s life is also in danger.

Can they find their forever with all the danger that still lies ahead? 

Guilt gnaws at his conscience with each passing day, but despite his shame, he still can’t let her go. She is the flame to his fire, the soul of his heart. Without her by his side, he is just a body without a warm pulse.  Desperate to obtain the missing drug components and keep Lillian safe, Carson becomes overbearing and unreasonable.  Lillian’s strong-will tears them emotionally apart, stirring thoughts of doubt for their future. She knows she loves him irrevocably, but can she survive in his volatile world?

If you missed book 1, Beginning With Forever, you can get it during the tour for only 99 cents!

My Thoughts:

As much as I liked the first book, I have to tell you that...

I liked this one even more!

There were no time warps! The same great characters were present with some more face time with a few of them.There were also a few new characters to add more mystery to the mix.

The dynamics of Carson and Lillian's relationship grows, struggles, changes, and expands in this book. There were more troubles between them in this book but it was understandable after everything that happened in the last book.

Lil annoyed me a tad. I know she was having a hard time but she kept pushing him away for awhile and what happened wasn't his fault.

Carson was even more overbearing in this one but, I just LOVE him!

There is more trouble in paradise and it seems to be coming from every direction.

I was intrigued. I have a theory and I can't wait to read the next book to see if I am correct. I won't give any thing away by saying more.

I was glued to my kindle from the beginning until the end of this book. I literally stayed up all night because I had to keep reading. It is really that good.

I  am in love with this series and I am eager for the next book!

There was romance, steam, suspense, alternating povs, danger, and did I mention the alpha male that is Carson?

You don't want to miss these books but you NEED to start at the beginning to appreciate their emotions, actions, and everything that is happening.

I received an ecopy in exchange for my honest opinion. It is all consuming and gripping. It was an excellent read and I loved it. Keep up the awesomeness Lan!
