Vote early! Vote often!

Oh wait, American Idol isn’t on right now.

It’s election day in the US.

 A day where I find myself following the advice of WC Fields, “Hell, I never vote for anybody, I always vote against.”

I voted. Did you?

“a great book”

Filed under: Uncategorized — jenniferelbaum @ 8:57 am

“I just read a great book”
that’s the title of Jennifer Colgan’s blog post and the book she’s talking about is mine!! 

 Here’s part of what she said about NOWHERE TO HIDE: “I just finished her book, Nowhere to Hide, and I have to say it’s the first book I’ve read in literally months that kept me turning pages right to the end.”

What a compliment! What a fabulous way to start the week! Thanks Jennifer, I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

How many partners?

Filed under: Uncategorized — jenniferelbaum @ 10:14 am

I just finished a book by a well-known novelist (and a not quite as well-known novelist).  I had never read anything by either of these authors before.  Judging by my reaction to this book, I may never read anything by them again.

The book takes place over four days.  In that time, the “hero” had sex with two different women.  That’s okay.  If the male co-author of this book wanted the reader to believe that a man just can’t help himself if a naked and willing woman shows up in his bed, that was his choice.

The “heroine” knew that this guy had had sex with the other woman.  Two days later, she decided to have sex with him.  By the next morning, which is either day three or day four, she knows that she wants to spend the rest of her life together with him.  What?!

I get that she found him to be sexy, but they did a terrible job of convincing me that he was the love of her life and they belong together.  After all, they had just finished painting him as a man driven completely by his hormones.

How do you feel about characters who have multiple sexual partners within a short time period?  Do you believe they can be each other’s soul mate?

New interview up at Fallen Angel Reviews

Filed under: Uncategorized — jenniferelbaum @ 10:40 am

Fallen Angel Reviews gave Nowhere to Hide

5 Angels and named it a Recommended Read.

Jen H. said, “Nowhere to Hide is loaded with action that detonates from the first page. I thought Ms. Elbaum did a spectacular job of adding little details throughout scenes, crystallizing settings that extra little bit and making it extremely easy to slip further into the adventure. If that’s not enough, these pages are filled with unabated sexual tension arcing between Alex and Wolf that was thrilling to watch explode. They’re an irresistible couple”

Here’s the link to the interview that Linda did with me:

The kind of feedback I love

Got the nicest note yesterday about Nowhere to Hide.

Jennifer Colgan (www.jennifercolgan.com )

Hi Jennifer!

I just wanted to let you know I’m reading Nowhere to Hide and I’m loving it! I’m only on page 65 but I’m really impressed. It’s suspenseful, well-written and the sexual tension is fantastic! I’m so tired of books where the author tells you the hero has the hots for the heroine and vice versa. Here, I actually feel it.”

Reactions like that make it all worthwhile! Thanks Jennifer!

Adding this review by Tammy that’s up on Amazon. She gave Nowhere to Hide 5 Stars!

I really enjoyed this book. Suspenseful, intriguing and just the right amount of passion. I picked it up in the morning and I truly couldn’t put it down. Each page left me eagerly anticipating what was next to come. I found myself skimming the bottom of the opposite page to get a little preview more than once. It was satisfying while leaving me wondering about a few things – Sequel?? Dare I dream?
