Title: Written in the Stars
Author: Jennifer Martinez
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 30, 2013
You’ve got to kiss a few frogs before you find your Prince.
Just Give Me a Reason - Pink
Believers of fate, destiny, whatever, say that there are many paths to your one final
destination. No matter what choices you make you will always end up right where you
are supposed to be. Well I guess I took the road less traveled because God knows I’m
broken, bruised, and damaged.
This is my story. It’s about all the wrong turns that led to the right destination. We were
written in the stars from the very beginning and neither of us knew it. Love is something
you can’t fight and can’t hide from no matter how bad you want to. This is my cosmic
turn of love.

One day while slaving away at her monotonous day job, Jennifer Martinez found her true calling. Like a firefly in the night, the pages called to her. Once she caught the bug there was no stopping it. Her fingers flew furiously across the keyboard winding tales of love, mystery and anger. She snapped out of her reverie to find herself still behind the desk but at least she knew who she was… Author Jennifer Martinez.
I like to think of myself as a beautiful conundrum. When I am not writing, I can be found surrounded by my amazing family and 4 dogs or volunteering at a local animal rescue. I love who I am and don’t mind at all when I get strange looks from people. I am a tattoo covered, child and animal lover who looks forward to destroying peoples preconceived
notions of what “someone like me” would be interested in. You only live life once… you may as well make it interesting. I love to get lost in a good book and hope that everyone will get lost in mine.

I moved my curly brown hair over my shoulder as he began slowly unzipping my dress,
savoring every inch of the skin he had never seen. As my dress fell to my feet I was
completely open for him to see. I turned back around and we began kissing again as I
fumbled with the buttons on his white dress shirt. Once I had the final button undone I
traced my fingers up his washboard abs over his chest and onto his shoulders where I
finally lifted the shirt of his solid frame. When his shirt finally shared a space next to my
dress, he lifted me up and onto the bed. With both of us now on the bed, things continued
to get hotter. His kisses no longer stopped at my collarbone and every time my breath
would catch he would wait a second then continue. I took the time he was leaning over
my exposed body to take him in in all his splendor. I traced every inch of his skin with
my fingertips making sure I memorized every muscle and every dip. I finally snuck my
finger inside the waistband of his jeans and we took the next step.
Now honestly I can't tell you exactly what happened. I know that once I undid the button
on his pants he stood up and let his jeans fall to the ground as he grabbed a condom from
his bedside table and put it on. I can also tell you that he looked absolutely perfect with
his red swollen lips, flushed face and perfect chest rising and falling with the excitement
that hung in the air like a fog. When he climbed back on the bed he slowly removed my
panties and then we were dancing. It was like the perfect waltz, slow and a little awkward
at first while I learned the moves but once I was confident in my dance we were like
Cinderella and Prince Charming at the ball. Dancing on clouds, perfectly content and
in love. I didn't say it that night and looking back, if I had things may have gone very
differently. Fate’s kind of a bitch like that.
Jennifer is also the author of Don't Kill Dinner
Don't Kill Dinner by Jennifer Martinez
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
WOW! For a first novel, this author shows an amazing talent. The story flows so well, you can't stop reading, don't want to put it down, and are held captive by Kenna. The notion of a heroine is blasted away in Don't Kill Dinner. Your notion of good, thoughts of vampires and ideas of evil are twisted and changed forever. There's an actual plot and I loved it. This is a strong story.
Kenna, after being turned into a vampire, experiences real love, strength and power she's never had before, and much more.
Arthur, who has been in love with Kenna, secretly, for years, is her sire. They fall in love fast, but will they burn out?
To say this is not your average Vampire story, is a discredit to this author. It's an phenomenal story, leaving you begging for the next installment.
