Tori Albert is eighteen, her confidence level is zero. Her life experience…also zero. She’s a girl lost in the shuffle, hiding in the shadows, craving attention. If only someone, anyone, would notice her, maybe life would improve. 

Grant Donovan can’t stop noticing Tori, but she is young, inexperienced and na├»ve. She is also his best friend’s younger sister. Grant knows the best thing he can do is just walk away. So why the hell isn’t he walking away?

When a late night knock lands across her bedroom door, Tori knows what stands behind it could end in disaster…but how many time does opportunity come knocking?

Just when she thinks her luck is finally changing, the assurance Tori believes she has finally found is taken away. With new assets and a new goal in sight, Tori will soon learn her new found confidence isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Unfortunately, some things you just have to learn the hard way.

Prologue:

Grant

“Look around the bar, Grant. Give us an idea of what your type is. We’ll help hook you up with the perfect girl.” My sister’s friend, Gabby, tossed a pretzel into her mouth, and chewed while talking. 
I scanned a few of the girls seated closest to us. Fair skin, red hair, casually sipping a beer and chatting with her friends. She was pretty, but not for me. Moving along. Dark hair, exotic, confident, drinking a Martini. Her eyes connected with mine and she rolled them uninterestedly. Not a problem, the feeling was mutual. Next. Ponytail and glasses picking at the label on her bottle of beer. Cute, but once again, I wasn’t interested. 
“Doesn’t look like you see anyone,” Gabby said, exchanging glances with my sister, Julie.
I gave another glance around the room at the pretty faces surrounding us, but still no one held my attention. All of the girls were attractive. Just none of them seemed to do it for me.
Not like her.
The dull ache forming in my chest stopped me from going down that road again.
Crowds and drinking were never my scene. I was eager to leave even though we hadn’t been there very long. No matter what part of Jersey you were in, the bars were always mobbed. I’d almost forgotten how crowded it could get; it’d been so long since I was home. Not that Jersey was my home anymore. We paid the tab and the three stools we vacated were immediately snatched up in the packed bar.
As we made our way through the hoard of people, my eyes fell on a girl with the most unnatural looking blonde hair I’d ever seen. Platinum locks so light her hair actually bordered on white and eyes an odd shade of blue that just didn’t look right. Even in the poor lighting of the bar, I could see her make-up was piled on thick. Her jeans were tight and her blouse was low cut. The heels on her boots were high and her boobs were…ginormous. Way too large for her small frame. She stood in a circle of laughing girls, but there was something familiar about the sweet sound of her laugh that stood out. 
After passing the group of girls, I turned my head to catch one last glimpse of the busty blonde before being tugged from the bar into the fresh night air.
What was it about that girl? Did I know her? What was on her wrist?
“No. Way!” Julie and Gabby both stated dramatically in unison.
“No way what?” I asked, turning to face them.
“There is no way in hell we would ever let you go for a girl like that.” Julie laughed, patting me on the back.
“Like what?” I questioned, lifting my brow.
Gabby shook her head giggling and Julie answered for both of them.

“A desperate girl with big, fake boobs.”

What is your name, where were you born and where do you live now?
My name is Ryan Ringbloom. I was born in New York and I now live with my husband and son in New Jersey.

Do you have a favourite out of the books you have written? If so why is it your favourite? 
Of course all of the books hold a special place in my heart, but my fav of the bunch is Books, Blogs, & Reality. It focuses on the online friendships we make, getting lost in the fantasy of books and setting high expectations for reality.

Do you have a favourite character from your books? And why are they your favourite?
My fav is Lizzie from BBR. She’s married. She’s bored. A bad combination. Can that situation get turned around?
I’ve had a lot of people privately message me regarding Lizzie being their favorite character. She’s extremely relatable.

If you had to choose to be one of your characters in your book/books which would you be? And why?
Tessa, from the Fast Series. I’d kill for her problems.
              
Do you read all the reviews of your book/books?
Yes, every single one. Even the bad ones where I have to close one eye and remember to breathe.

What was the toughest/best review you have ever had?
The toughest reviews are when a reader gives a low rating but does not leave an actual review. Trust me, it sucks to hear people criticize your work, yet at the same time you just want to know…why did you hate it???? The best review…way too many to count. And let me tell you there is no better feeling than reading a review from someone who loved your book.

Would you ever ask a reviewer to change their review if it was not all positive about your book/books?
Never. Everyone has different opinions, prefers different genre’s, has a style of book they prefer. I always prefer honesty…even if it hurts like hell.

Have you ever suffered from a "writer's block"? What did you do to get past the "block"? 
Yes, I admit, I am suffering from it right now. My creative juices have stopped flowing, they are down to a trickle. I am working on getting past the block by reading, listening to music, just soaking up art in any form I can.

Do you think children at schools these days are encouraged enough to read?
Yes, I really do. My son is in Kindergarten and they have so many reading programs. They go to the library regularly and take home books. They have a book buddy program where they read with their book buddy in class. Every month a chart is sent home to fill in with the names of the books they read. I couldn’t be happier.

Did you read a lot at school and write lots of stories or is being a writer something newer in your life?
I loved to read as a kid. LOVED IT! And I did dabble in some short stories. I remember writing one about me, the boy next door and a magic worm.

Have you ever based characters on people you know or based events on things that have happened to you?
Yes, each character has a little of me in them. In one of my books, Panic, I tell a story dealing with both sides of adoption. I am an adoptive parent. There is a lot of my heart in that book. At times it was very difficult to write. And I hope all the love I set out to show in that book came through.
