Waves of Love Blog Tour Stop

Jenna knew Reece would break her heart, when he did Tyler stepped in to pick up the pieces. 

As she’s ready to take the next step with Tyler, Jenna finds herself face to face with Reece. Lies and secrets are discovered from the two boys she trusted the most. And now it’s more than just her heart on the line, it’s her life as well. 

Torn between two amazing guys Jenna’s certain of only one thing, this is the most important decision of her life. One almost destroyed her. The other brought her back to life. The time has come to choose. Can Jenna move forward with Tyler or will she be stuck in the past with Reece?

OH. MY. GODDESS. This book was beyond my expectations. I first got introduced to Danielle Sibarium books by her book For Always. I absolutely fell in love with the way Danielle writes and emotional story and so when I found out that she was coming out with Heart Waves, I automatically bought the book. I absolutely fell in love with the way the story was created. A modern day take on the most epically tragic love story, Romeo and Juliet, but with a twist. Usually when there is two guys that are potential love interests, we fan girls, break up into teams. We see it with Twilight, Team Edward or Team Jacob, well the Heart Wave series is no different.

Though my team didn’t form until the second book, Breaking Waves. From that book on I was and will always be Team Reece. I absolutely despised Tyler. I didn’t trust him as far as I could throw him. Granted the boy is hot, but something never sat right with me. I also didn’t like Jenna much in Breaking Waves either. I mean she did the opposite of what Reece asked her to do, and yes sometimes it takes another guy to mend a broken heart, but really? I won’t get into the details because you have to read the books. Seriously if you haven’t picked up these books you are seriously missing out.

When I received Waves of Love in my mail box, I was so nervous. It was the first time I was so anxious to read a book and so terrified at the same time. There was three ways Danielle could take this book. Option 1 Jenna ends up with Tyler, Option 2 Jenna ends up with Reece (if he’s alive), or Option 3 the modern take on Romeo & Juliet, ends like Romeo & Juliet. I was at the edge of my bed the entire time. I was freaking out, frequently I might add, and literally having to pause for a few seconds to talk myself down. I can usually figure out how a book is going to end, but Danielle had me guessing right up until the last page. I can’t expand further on my thoughts because, I would give too much away. Just know that you HAVE to start this series if you haven’t already!
I adore Danielle, and it’s not just because we share the same name. I adore her because she tackles real life events in her stories, maybe not so realistically in the Heart Waves series because there is a touch of a paranormal aspect to it, but the issues are still the same. I usually have a few quotes I love to include in my reviews, this review however I am only going to leave one quote. I’ll let you decide the meaning behind it.

“…we ended a tragedy and woe, so that Juliet can now live happily with her Romeo.”

What do you think? Does Jenna get to live happily with her Romeo? And what defines happily, because sometimes in death we are truly freed. Have you interested to see what happens next? Pick up your copy now! You all know I love music, so I created a playlist with the help of my friend Christina, so check it out!
<3 Dani

Danielle Sibarium grew up as an only child of divorced parents in Brooklyn, New York. Her imagination was developed at an early age. Surrounded by stuffed animals and imaginary friends, she transported herself into a fantasy world full of magic and wonder. Books were the gateway between her play world and reality. On any given summer afternoon she became Snow White sweeping and cooking for the dwarfs, or Cinderella waiting for the prince.

Danielle always loved dialogue and in elementary school began writing plays and short stories. This is when she began to understand she could not only bring her fantastical world to life for herself, but she could enchant others as well. And so she wrote. She wrote and wrote and wrote.

Sadly the first piece she ever sent out for publication of any sort was a letter to the editor of The Home News Tribune. It was a piece thanking the first responders for their bravery and selflessness on Sept 11th. It was chosen as letter of the week.

In 2007 Danielle collaborated with Charlotte Doreen Small to write songs for her CD More. Danielle wrote the lyrics for Take My Hand, and Goodbye, while Charlotte contributed the melody.
 In October 2011 Danielle’s debut novel For Always was released. She Has since released Heart Waves and the second book in the Heart Waves series, Breaking Waves. Danielle graduated from Farleigh Dickinson University with honors, and currently lives in New Jersey with her husband and three children.

Teaser Tuesday!!

So it's been a while since I've done a teaser Tuesday, so I decided to share today! I've been working on this book Never Crossover, you might have read a few teasers I have floating around on some friends blog, but if you haven't you're in luck today! I'm sharing the unedited Prologue with you and I hope you absolutely love it.

Never Crossover is slightly different than my two previous books because its YA, upper YA because of slight language, but I'm trying to keep it PG. LOL I hope you like what I have so far and I'm looking to release Never Crossover January 6, 2014 and the cover reveal will be sometime in December. Leave me some comments, tweet me, facebook me, or email me and let me know what you think! I love getting feedback from y'all!

Prologue – The Party Phoebe

Paige is looking in the mirror for the umpteenth time. I swear it doesn’t matter how she dresses, hell she could put on a paper bag and look absolutely stunning. I hate her. I love her. It’s an ongoing battle, but when it comes down to it, I would do anything for her. Anything but go to this ridiculous excuse of a party.

“Come on Phoebe! I don’t know why you have to be so anti-social.” Paige is walking back and forth between our bedroom through the Jack and Jill doors.

It’s the same thing she always tells me each time some sort of school function is put on. She doesn’t get that I’m not the popular one. The only reason they talk to me is because I’m her twin. Normally I would cave and go with her because someone needed to be the responsible one, but not tonight.

“Paige just go already. I’m sure everyone is waiting on you. Just call me if you drink too much and need a ride home. “I go back to my book and get comfortable underneath the blankets. She stomps her foot a little and then slams my side of the door to the bathroom making the ice in the glass of Dr. Pepper on my night stand clink together. Wonderful.

It’s eerily quiet in the house but I can feel something looking at me. I have my reading light on and it’s casting shadows across the room. Maybe reading The Haunting Season by Michelle Muto was a mistake. My ears strain to hear any kind of noise, but there’s nothing but quiet. Who knew silence could be so loud?

Ignoring the feeling and chalking it up to the fact that I’m reading a scary book, I turn page after page of the story getting completely sucked into the people being locked in objects. Mirrors, I need to cover all the mirrors in my house after this book. Mentally I tally how many I have, when I hear a noise. According to my kindle I’m 70% into the book when I just started it a few hours ago.

Turning my head toward the bathroom door, hoping to see light shining underneath it to alert me that Paige is home, but it’s black. My eye catches the alarm clock sitting on my desk as I examine the room. Its after 3 o’clock in the morning, surely Paige is already home and tucked into her bed.

Pulling back the covers and placing my feet on the carpet, a shiver descends my spine, and ignites a slow burn of awareness. I can still feel eyes watching me and it doesn’t matter which way I turn, it’s a constant glare. I make it to the door of our shared bathroom with sweat coats my hands. I turn the handle, push, and I’m rewarded with more darkness. I inch my way across the freezing tiles, flip the switch on the other side of the wall, and see nothing. Paige still isn’t home yet.

Turning around to check my phone, I drop to my knees. The overwhelming urge to puke is clawing its way up my throat. Eyes, more than one set, I feel roaming all over me. Analyzing me. Watching me. The feeling is so intense, I open my mouth to scream when my breath gets sucked back in. It’s like I was just punched in the stomach. Except it’s so much worse. It’s like I was stabbed and the knife was twisted while it was inside of me.

I’ve never had a panic attack and I’ve never had that weird twin ESP. You know when you have twins one can have something done and the other would feel it like it was happening to them? I read a lot and they have a few studies on how identical twins could feel things from each other or develop some of the same skills. Paige and I never had that. Yeah we looked alike but that’s where our similarities stopped. She liked to go out and I liked to stay home. To be honest, we were never really close, but I feel this.

I can feel Paige struggling to stay alive and then I feel a piece of me being pulled away.
