Sweet Nothing by Mia Henry (Guest Post/Giveaway)


We have the pleasure of having Mia Henry stop by today with her new adult romance that I've just added to my to-be-read list, SWEET NOTHING!


Favorite Scene to Write

I love first dates. Good ones, anyway. Is there anything better than the tension between two people on the verge of knowing each other? There’s so much possibility. Something so sexy about the unknown.

I had an amazing time writing Elle and Luke’s story. There are scenes that I love because of the tension, scenes that were fun to write because of the mystery woven through the story, and scenes that were just. Plain. Hot. But one of my favorite scenes to write in this book was the scene where Elle and Luke go snorkeling on their first date. I love a man who takes charge—so it was fun to write Luke’s confidence and his desire for Elle in this scene. He knows what he wants, and he knows how to get it. And I loved writing Elle’s response here—she’s afraid to get too close, but her connection to Luke is too strong for her to pull away.

I hope you love reading this scene as much as I loved writing it. Let’s face it—who doesn’t have fun with a scene where two characters get half-naked and totally wet?

Happy reading,

Mia




Sweet Nothing by Mia Henry
Amazon | Barnes and Noble
Elliot Halloran is running away. Away from her privileged Manhattan upbringing and a promising future at business school. Away from her family, which plummeted from A-list to disgraced after her criminal father’s atrocities were exposed. Despite the guilt Elliot feels for abandoning her family, she has no choice. She is too recognizable to live life as the person she has always been. So when an old family friend offers her a position as an economics instructor at Miami’s elite Alford Academy, Elliot jumps at the chance to distance herself from her past. She cuts her hair, changes her name, and vows never to speak of her old life again.
Keeping her identity hidden is harder than Elliot expected, especially with a roommate who seems to be on the verge of uncovering her true identity. As she fumbles through the opening chapters of her new life, Elliot encounters an entirely unforeseen obstacle: photography instructor Luke Poulos. Luke is sensitive and spontaneous. An art lover. Smart. Everything Elliot has ever wanted. Luke and Elliot’s connection deepens when she learns that he lost his parents in a car accident when he was a teenager. Like Elliot, Luke understands that life can shatter in an instant.
Elliot knows that a relationship with Luke is impossible; that he would never love her if he knew the details of her past. But as she struggles with whether to open herself to love or keep her true self locked away, Elliot learns that she’s not the only one with secrets.
