InViolet InFocus – Lia Romeo
By Lia Romeo and Nick Romeo. Several years ago, a friend passed along a copy of a book called 14, Things to Be Happy About. No matter how hard we try to convince ourselves that life is a bowl of cherries, the truth is most of the cherries are sour and life basically sucks. And we decided it was time somebody wrote a book about it. From death and taxes to rhinoviruses, butt acne, and the Hindenburg disaster, 11, Things to Be Miserable About is a book that will make you laugh, cry, and contemplate self-mutilation. Happy reading! Studies that show that the average father spends less than thirty minutes a week talking to his children. The Malthusian catastrophe—a predicted return to subsistence living due to population growth outpacing agricultural production.
Review: Dating The Devil by Lia Romeo

Secondly, this story takes place in New York City, and as a former NYC commuter and dweller, I found the references to city landmarks, street names, etc. If you are looking for a contemporary romance with a devilish twist, this book is for you!

With shutdowns on Broadway and in film and television, theater, concerts, dance, music and many other areas of entertainment, the need is great and growing.
