a note from Cecy….

Hello Everyone,

When I was first encouraged by my agent to write new adult my first question to her was, “What’s new adult?”

“They’re character driven stories,” she replied. “Exactly what you’re writing now, minus the magic.”

I didn’t count on loving this genre, nor did I plan to fall in love with these characters. But the Tres Santos siblings were so unlike most characters in contemporary romance. They’re of Cuban descent, caught between traditional familial roles and modern America, and fighting to have the happiness they deserve, despite their shattered pasts.

What can I say? Good people deserve redemption. This was my opportunity to give Lety, Mateo, and Sofia theirs.

He's the campus golden boy. She's picking up the pieces of her broken past. But in Cecy Robson's scorching novel of second chances - perfect for fans of Monica Murphy and J. Lynn - their differences only make their connection more explosive.

Every memory Lety Tres Santos has from her childhood comes with a scar - some emotional, some physical. Her father is an abusive drug addict, and her mother enables his destructive behavior. College offers Lety a fresh start...until her father finds a way to ruin that, too. Now, after losing her scholarship to kick off junior year, Lety must somehow stay in school, pay tuition, and turn a deaf ear to the whispers that follow her. And she intends to do it all without Brody Quaid's help.

Brody is a lacrosse star, a 4.0 student - and as a freshman, he fell hard for the beautiful and spirited Lety. But their relationship crashed and burned because he couldn't break through the walls she's put up around her heart. With Lety hurting more than ever, Brody strives to win her back and make her believe in real love and true partnership. That will mean opening up secrets locked away in his own past - and trusting someone more than he's ever dared.

Lety knows how painful it can be to depend on the wrong man. She also knows how much Brody wants to do this the right way. But it takes more than sizzling desire to move on and build a future together.

And yet, as he trains Sofia to defend herself using his hard-hitting MMA techniques, he's drawn to the vulnerable beauty in ways he never expected. As Sofia grows stronger, she also grows brave enough to open herself up to love. And along the way, she challenges everything Killian believes to be true, showing him that no matter how much he dominates in the ring, the real battle is fought in the heart.

  14. Megan Riverina Romantics

    “What’s New Adult?” I said the same thing when the genre was “created”. I never saw the need to separate books because of the age of the characters other than YA. But then reading about people in their late teens/early twenties became very popular. I still have a difficult time thinking of people in their early twenties as “new” adults. At that point in my life I was way more than new at adulting 😉

  15. Karen M.

    This looks like a great series. Winning your audiobooks would be awesome!
