Rising-star blogger Milla Kierce knows she’s arrived when she sees the swag basket in her dressing room on the night of her late-night television debut. But before she can bite into the muffin that symbolizes her success, gunfire echoes through the TV studio. She’s just hidden herself (mostly in plain sight) when the door flings open. Instead of a gunman, there stands one of the world’s most popular rock stars, Gage Daxson, looking for his own way out of danger. Thrown together, they’ll battle a venomous man seeking revenge and his own sexual pleasure, but they may
never leave the building again. Distracted by fear, fame, and infamy, can these two somehow find their way to each other?
Equal parts horrifying and hilarious, Debra Anastasia’s Late Night With Andres offers more than a few twists and turns—and, of course, enough heat to keep things interesting.
100% of the proceeds generated from sales the novella Late Night with Andres will be donated by Debra Anastasia, Omnific Publishing, and all the staff members involved, to assist in the battle against breast cancer—because cancer sucks.
I never really know what to expect from Debra Anastasia. I mean, I’m a fan of “Poughkeepsie” for sure, but she’s so wonderfully funny and off-the-wall, I thought that perhaps “Late Night with Andres” was about an all-night furries orgy in Monaco. I’m happy to report I was wrong. Now I’m just left wondering how, exactly, she manages to make me
laugh during the course of book that is basically about a gun wielding maniac taking people hostage…but she does it!
Milla has arrived. As on online advice columnist she has been invited to appear on “Late Night with Andres”, and is completely thrilled about it…until she hears gunfire. Turns out, a maniac with a gun is randomly shooting in the building, and another guest seeks refuge in her dressing room. I say it’s good fortune for her that it turns out to be Gage, a totally hot and famous rock star. Now they just have to stay alive…with each other’s help.
This is a wonderful book, and far too short if you ask me. However, it packs quite a punch for how short it is, about 80 pages. There’s action, adventure, romance and hilarity in those 80 pages. Milla is freakin’ hilarious, too. She’s so quirky and unexpected, and a character I think any woman can relate to. I mean, who wouldn’t feel just a bit stars truck and fangirlish when a hot rock star comes into your dressing room, even if it is to hide from a crazy man with a gun? What is amazing to me is how she is able to make you feel connected to the characters in such a short time. I mean, there’s not a lot of back story for any of them since this is such a short book, but someone Debra manages to give you just enough to build upon to really invest you in the story. To me, that’s the mark of an accomplished writer.
I am a fan of Debra’s writing style. She’s hilarious but her stories have a lot of depth to them. I’d be happy to be trapped in a dressing room with her any time, and I mean that in the most platonic way possible. 5 star read for
me! And don’t forget that all the proceeds from this book go to help in the fight against breast cancer. So, in
reading this, you’ll be laughing your butt off and helping to support a great cause!
Debra Anastasia grew up in New York and got a bachelor’s degree in political science at SUNY New Paltz. At the start of her marriage, she moved to southern Maryland with her husband. She still doesn’t trust crabs and all their legs, though everyone else in her
family thinks they’re delicious. Her favorite hobbies include knitting, painting furniture and wall murals, and slapping clowns.
Her writing started a decent handful of years ago when along with the dogs, cat, kids, and husband, the voices of characters started whispering stories in Debra’s ear. Insomnia was the gateway for the plots that wouldn’t give up, wouldn’t let go. In the shower, a twist would take hold and–dripping and frenzied–she’d find somewhere, anywhere to write it down.
