Whew.....talk about a book that starts off with Fireworks and sucks you in right from the very first page....E.L. Montes sure knows how to write a prologue that will have you salivating for more! I could not put this book down once I started it!
Disastrous is the story of Mia Sullivan, a first year law student who lands an intern position, which is very rare for a first year law student at one the most prestigious law firms in Boston. Enter Marcus DeLuca; Sexy, mysterious, and the owner of the law firm that she will be working for. Through the course of the book Mia and Marcus develop an emotionally intense relationship that kept my stomach in knots and caused me to have some major anxiety, in a good way, like a GREAT story does! There were some twist and turns I saw coming and some I did not which is half of what kept me intrigued! I also thought the story line was different and fresh from any that I had seen in awhile.
I knew right from the start of this book that Disastrous was going to be a great debut novel for E.L. Montes! My calendar is marked and I am dying to read CAUTIOUS (Disastrous #2)! Seriously, make sure you read this book, you don't want to miss out :)
P.S. I need a shirt that says Marcus's future baby mama cause seriously that man is SMOKING HOT, and who doesn't like a smoking hot alpha male in their stories?
About the Author:
Emmy Montes was born in Puerto Rico but rasied in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She currently resides in Philadelphia with her husband, Alex, and their English bulldog. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Legal Studies. She works full time as a paralegal for mid-size law firm. Although she loves the legal field, writing was always her passion.
Her first love for books began with the Goosebumps series as a child. After that she read anything and everything from poetry to short stories. She was passionate about the fictional world and intrigued by the way an author could pull you into a story with just simple words. As a hobby she started writing her own poetry, daily journal entries and short stories.
She actually dreamed of being a journalist and even went as far as researching colleges to earn a degree in Journalism. At the time, major newspaper companies and magazines were having budgets cut, and after careful thought she settled on another major. When she finished her degree, she felt like something was missing. She continued to write for several years, working on different story ideas, but never finished. Disastrous is her first novel. The sequel, Cautious, is due for release in May 2013.
