Sometime in the future, I feel like no one’s going to believe Jay, Six, and me when we say we have nothing up our sleeves.
But honest to god, we really didn’t have one until mid-February (unlike the time we were planning Summer Crush, which went on for almost a year) and we were even doubtful we’d make it because everything was such a struggle lately.
Anywayyyyy… that’s not the point. The point is this: WE HAVE A NEW BOOK COMING OUT THIS MAY!!!
Can you believe it’s already April? *insert shocked emoji here* I mean, where did the first quarter of the year go?
For sure, I was busy with work mostly, adjusting to the new hours and learning a lot of new stuff. I honestly haven’t created a dent in my writing schedule just yet, but I’m happy to tell you that I’m…trying. Haha. And while I haven’t yet been cranking out as many words as I wanted, let me show you something really pretty first.
Presenting, the new cover of Scandalized:
I’m so happy to be part of something new from #romanceclass, this time a new imprint that promises fresh takes on your favorite romance tropes and a lot more heat.
FLAIR (or #romanceclassFlair) is a new, ongoing project and it’ll bring you steamy contemporary romance (in English) by Filipino authors. There are four new titles from four different #romanceclass authors about to be released, and these books will be unapologetically sexy. What can you expect from Flair? HEAs, Filipino characters, fresh telling of familiar tropes, lots of heat.
Flair is not a publisher, but there is a single Flair team that is working with the authors on all the books. The team is composed of #romanceclass community authors, readers, editors, designers. Follow Romanceclass Books on FB, romanceclassbooks on IG, and #romanceclass on Twitter to get the updates!

Here’s another #romanceclass upcoming release which, I imagine, would excite those who have read Clarisse David’s Keeping the Distance. Her new novel, Making it Complicated, is the second book in the I Heart Iloilo series–and it features Cam and Hunter. (Hunter is a drummer, by the way. SO YAY OMG DRUMMERS ARE HOT.)
Today is the cover reveal for Making it Complicated, organized by Lola’s Blog Tours. The cover designer is Daniel Tinagan. Check it out!
Making it Complicated (I Heart Iloilo #2)
By Clarisse David
Age category: Young Adult, New Adult
Release Date: October 16, 2017
No promises. No expectations. Just one night on a paradise island that could mean everything.
Nineteen-year-old Cam has a metric ton of emotional baggage and is in no mood to unload them on anyone. After her parents’ marriage imploded, stress-free is the only way she wants her life to be. And what could be more freeing than spending the summer on Boracay? Absolutely nothing… until she bumps heads with Hunter, the hot drummer who screams incoming heartbreak from a mile away.
Hunter has grand plans, none of which include angry-at-the-world Cam, best friend to the girl he always thought he’d end up with. He likes his life steady, thank you very much. But steady has now become synonymous with boring. His grand plans don’t seem so grand anymore. So when Cam comes home to Iloilo City and reaches out to him, he surprises himself when the one answer he can think of is… yes. Definitely yes.
Sometimes, complications are the only things that make sense.

I have consistently been posting about this little thing called #ProjectPio on my social media accounts since May, and today, I’m very proud to present its official title and cover!
Like Nobody’s Watching is my 8th book (if you include the anthologies I’ve been a part of, that is), and is a spin-off novel to Waiting in the Wings. Here’s it’s beautiful cover–which I specifically requested to “mimic” the look and feel of its predecessor–with magic provided by Fred Lo, Chi Yu Rodriguez (photography), and Miles Tan (digital painting/lettering/layout).
Like Nobody’s Watching
It’s all fun and games until someone catches feelings.
If there’s something Pio Alvez is good at, it’s pretending to be someone he’s not. On stage and on-screen, the actor has mastered the art of becoming the characters he plays, and his new role should be no different. After all, how difficult would it be to pretend to be smitten with a beautiful, intelligent go-getter like Audrey Alonzo?
Perhaps it’s more difficult pretending not to be.
