Summer of Hush by R.L. Merrill

Summer of Hush by R.L. Merrill

A rocker with a crush

An intern with a secret

A meet-cute

A band attempting to make a comeback after a tragedy occurred

A group of metalcore musicians who are all awkward and adorable and a supporting cast of bands and crew who will make you laugh, swoon, and maybe even tear up a time or two.

Hush is back… and it’s about to get loud.

After two years grieving the death of his best friend, Silas Franklin is back on the road with his metalcore band, Hush. With a new member, a brilliant new album, and a headlining spot on the last cross-country Warped Tour, life couldn’t be better—unless Silas could meet the intriguing music blogger known only as the Guru. Silas has followed his blog for years and feels the Guru might be the only person who “gets” him.

For years Krishnan Guruvayoor has reported on the metal scene as an anonymous blogger, and he’s just landed an internship on the Warped Tour as well as a potential position with a well-respected music magazine. His best friend arranges for him to meet singer Silas Franklin—but only as Krish the Intern. Their chemistry is instant, and Krish is thrilled to get to know the man behind the music.

The rock star and blogger quickly go from meet-cute to cuddle session, but secrets, overprotective bandmates, meddling media, and a terrible accident all conspire against them. Can their romance survive the Summer of Hush?

Veronica Mars in LoVe

Are you like me? Do you love the Logan/Veronica relationship?

Meant to Be Press

vmars-promotionalIf you’ve seen any of Veronica Mars’ four seasons and a movie, then you know that private investigator Veronica Mars is romantically troubled. In season one, which began back in 2006, she’s a popular girl turned dark by personal trauma and her best friend’s murder. Along the way she struggles with feelings for the charming but bad boy Logan Echolls. Can he be made good enough for our teen-detective, or is it his swagger that makes her want him?

It’s 2019 now, and Hulu just released a short season 4. Veronica is no longer a teen detective, but she hasn’t exactly grown up, either. She’s still struggling with her relationship to Logan, who has matured considerably. He has a respectable job and is in therapy. Interestingly, as a viewers we are still suspicious of his changes–since we’ve seen his explosive nature unleashed for so many years. He is hardly the…

Great YA Romantic Fantasy Movie: Every Day

Every Day is a unique romantic fantasy movie about a girl who falls for a being that inhabits a different body every day. You can watch it streaming on Hulu now.

Rhiannon is a timid girl who’s jock bf pretty much just uses her for a placeholder so he has a girlfriend to stay sober at parties and drive his drunk butt home. But one day, when she asks him to go on a day trip with her, he accepts. They have an awesome time together–the best day of her life–until she goes to school the next day and he doesn’t remember anything about it.

Soon, Rhiannon starts meeting all these strange kids her age. They each know more about her than they should and start talking about switching bodies. Thinking it’s an elaborate scheme by her friends to tease her, she ignores them at first. But as more and more details add up, she realizes maybe there is truth to the tale.

I absolutely loved this film. It’s strange and wonderful and an adventure that I didn’t know how would end.

It brings up some scary questions. Do we love someone because of the body they come in or because of their soul? What would you do if the love of your life woke up as someone else each morning? Would you still love them in another body? How far would you go to find them when they leaped? And what if that new person has a girlfriend, a medical condition, or a plane ride to deal with? How would you protect your love and yourself?
