"Dear Jess! By occasion I came to read some of your writings, which came to me as a fresh and original way of thinking/approach. . .The reason of my writings to you is [that] many years ago, I received a Word of the Lord in my mind, which is remarkably accurate with your vision of books."
-- E-mail from a male reader/customer (2011)
"Based on the three books I've read, I can say that you're a brilliant writer. They are not shallow reads. Your books do not only entertain but they also make you reflect on what is really important in one's life."
-- E-mail from a female reader, 2011 (The Philippines)
"Great characters and a fascinating look at today's culture."
-- Kipp Poe | Review on "The Intern" (YA Sins07, Lust)
"I wish we'll always be friends," Cheryl finished. She blabbered something safe and acceptable so they could get on with things.
*I wish we'd have amazing first time sex!* Cheryl wanted to say instead. She'd always had a high sex drive but she'd taken great pains to wait for the right person to be sexually active with (much to the dismay of several people who'd been dying to date her or bed her--probably both, she'd always correctly assumed).
But William--William was different. He was hot but charming, fun but nice. A good guy, the type that could be relied on. That was what Cheryl liked about him anyway, never mind his amazing good looks, though the eye candy was of course a big bonus.
"Come here, baby," Paul whispered to Misty, pulling her in close as he started to remove her jacket.
*Christina Aguilera? Nicole Scherzinger? Keith Urban?* Cheryl thought to herself for a moment of some pop songs that had the words Paul had just spoken. She didn't think he was going to break out in song this time though.
Cheryl gave William a hug before they started French kissing.
It was lovely. They could feel the thrill in their bones.
*Yes, tonight's the night*--Cheryl was sure of it.
