JULY UPDATE




                    Hi and welcome to my new monthly update.



Well July has been quite a busy month. Having finished the school year, I was looking forward to the summer holidays to re-charge my batteries and also to get cracking on the new book, Wolves In The Woods.











If you've not heard or read about this upcoming crime, suspense, thriller well here's a brief outline. Wolves In The Woods is my first novel in this genre and I've been thoroughly enjoying getting into it. It is a stand alone novel, however the main character is Hannah Marshall who most readers would have met in my last book, An Enrapturing Attraction. Hannah has moved jobs and been promoted within the MET police in Cambridge, UK. Now a DCI, she is being challenged along with her new side kick Sergeant Daniel Trent, by having to hunt down a serial killer who is targeting young women. As in any case like this, there are many hurdles, twists and turns to be tackled by them both. Will the perpetrator tread a bit too close to Hannah's home life than she'd like?



Teaser Time......








Interviews and signing..... During the month I was asked if I'd like to do a couple of interviews. I said yes to both of these people for very different reasons.






Firstly, Mike Higginson of Authors of Passion Podcast has come up with a totally fabulous and unique way of helping authors to get exposure, but more importantly I thought, of helping readers get to know the author. He does this by interviewing us via Skype and publishing them on iTunes. It really is great! I'm not a fan of listening to my own voice, but I believe people can truly hear how you are saying what would be a written interview. You can check out my podcast interview Here.










In March 2016, I'll be attending the Leeds Author Signing 2016​ that is being hosted by the lovely ladies at Hourglass Events​. I'll be one of many fabulous authors who'll be there to meet fans, bloggers, readers and lovers of books, to sign our own books and basically have a tremendous time. For the lead up to the event, attending author Grace Harper​ has being interviewing each of us. Grace has a unique way of spotlighting us, which draws out and highlights things about us, some of which no-one knew before! :-D I really enjoyed it. You can take a look at my interview and spotlight Here

Tickets for the Leeds Author Event 2016​ are available now from - Here!

5 STAR REVIEW.....


"An Acute Attraction by AJ Walters is a funny, sexy romance story with a tinge of mystery. You will like Isabel Chambers, the main female character and narrator of the story from the first page. She is working single mother in her late-thirties with a great sense of humor and a taste for sexy reads. Her meeting with the enigmatic Marc Sanders will make sparks fly around the University of Cambridge and leave her breathless on more than one occasion.

As the story develops, Marc’s past and a colleague avid for power and money become more and more threatening. We also learn a bit more about Isabel’s past and some of the reasons for her presence in Cambridge. It will be very interesting to read the next installment of this story as the first one ended on a major cliffhanger. Both characters are normal people with flaws. Isabel is not a model-like virgin and even though Marc looks perfect on the outside, he holds secrets that some people will go to great lengths to keep hidden. I hope we will get to know them more.

AJ Walters has an undeniable talent as a writer. The story has a very good flow and opens many subplots along the way, making it multidimensional and all the more interesting. I liked the way Isabel sometimes breaks the fourth wall to talk directly to the reader and the touches of humor that she puts throughout the story. It was a pleasure to discover how the story had evolved from a blog post to a complete novella in only a few weeks. I think we will see many great things from this author in the future and I wish her the best possible success."

   5 STAR REVIEW.....   
           
"AJ Walters outshines in this sequel....read why in my review

Learning a bit more about Dr. Emelie and her demented ways added quite an unexpected twist to this sequel. She was a sexy, well poised, evil character that suited this story quite well. Yet, I was left a bit shaken by the turn of events between Mr. and Mrs. Acerbi. The greed these two shared was unparalleled. Marc, on the other hand, was just dreamy!! What a hottie!! Isabel was absolutely charismatic. She gave a bit more insight into her darker days yet her overall, positive, head strong outlook of the experience made me admire her even more. In addition, I rather enjoyed how she took charge in her delicious encounters with Marc. It was quite a treat. Overall, I genuinely enjoyed this read. It was quite the roller coaster. My biggest disappointment is that it has come to an end. Or has it?? (wink, wink. nudge, nudge)"- Cris. Goodreads Review.
 
 
 
 
 




5 STAR REVIEW.....

"So after reading books one and two in the Attraction Series, I can definitely say I was looking forward to getting my hands on and reading book three.
In An Enrapturing Attraction, we meet characters both old and new. This story begins in America where we meet Christian Wilson who is a bad boy turned good. He has been released from prison and is finding it hard re-entering the big wide world after being inside. His father, Edward Sanders, is trying to help him stay on the straight and narrow and wants him away from any temptations that could cause him to go back inside. Christian knows after all the problems he's caused in the past, he needs to prove to himself, his father and his stepbrother Marc Sanders, that he is a changed man. His father helps by organising him somewhere to go for a fresh start and a new beginning.

Hannah Marshall is an independent woman. She’s worked in the US for a couple of years; however, she is offered and takes a new job as detective inspector back in her home town in the UK. She is more than happy to return and be closer to her friends and family.
After meeting Christian in a bar, they spend a hot and rather steamy night together. Unbeknown to each other, they would be leaving for the same destination a few days later.

Quote: "Look at me, Hannah! I want you to watch everything I do to you and then you'll always remember."

Upon arriving in the UK, there paths cross again and the feelings these two have for one another start to blossom and most definitely heat up! But of course, as every fantastic book should be, not everything is smooth sailing. What happens when pasts come back to haunt you? Can you always trust those around you? I'm not one to give anything away so you'll have to read it for yourself to find out the answers to those questions and see if Christian and Hannah get the happily ever after they deserve.

What I can tell you is how much I enjoyed reading this book, and how much it made me smile and swoon with some hot and steamy scenes. Like I said, we do get to meet, see and catch up with characters from the previous books which was great to see where they are now in their lives. Overall, this has been a fab read and a great series. Thank you for giving me the chance to read An Enrapturing Attraction."

I'll leave you with a poem I wrote for my #1 Bestselling Poetry Book, A Collage of Poetry



The Perfect Dom
 
 
Who is this man I see lying beside me?
I know his name and the way he can be.
His need to be strong, to be in total control,
To think of failure, is like losing his soul.
 
I listen to him breathing in a deep sleep,
Watch his chest rise and fall, I try not to weep.
Quickly turning away, I wipe a lowly tear,
I think I know him well and what he may fear.
 
Thoughts of last night come flooding back,
Restraints that bound me, a mask coloured black.
A commanding tone and words that warned,
That should I disobey him, I would be scorned.
 
A tongue that tasted and fingers that felt,
So gentle at first, until out came the belt.
Pain mixed with pleasure, consuming within,
Red burning flesh, then cooled with his skin.
 
Now I watch him at rest and see so much more,
An innocence of life, emotions rush to my core.
Neither of us are perfect, both having pitfalls,
That doesn’t make us weak, but stronger than walls.
 
(c) A J Walters.
