Three Truths and a Lie from NA authors - Mila Ferrera and Colina Brennan and New Leaf Literary's, Jaida Temperly, Suzie Townsend and Kathleen Ortiz

Title: Spiral

NOTE: This is a "New Adult" novel. Due to mature content this title is recommended for ages 17+

Nessa Cavanaugh, psychology student, knows how to stay on an even keel. Despite the urging of her mother and her academic advisor to get a life and have some fun, “all work and no play” sums up her plan to survive her grueling internship year at a children's hospital. She doesn't want to end up like her father, whose constant ups and downs broke her family, and avoiding unnecessary emotional entanglements is a must.

Then she (literally) runs into Dr. Aron Lindstrom in the middle of her disastrous first day on the job. The attraction is instant—and terrifying. Nessa knows she should stay away—especially when she finds out he has a reputation for being a player—but Aron is brilliant, intense, and as sexy as they come. When he challenges her to take a chance on him, her plans to stay focused on work start to crumble.

But what begins as passion takes on a dangerous edge, becoming an emotional roller coaster that’s frighteningly familiar. As things spiral out of control, Nessa must decide whether she should hold on for the ride or run … even if it means leaving her heart behind.

Three Truths and a Lie:

Colina Brennan, NA Author of Addicted to You - Add to: Goodreads

1. I can de-bone a chicken wing in less than a minute.

4. I once decided going down a giant hill on roller blades would be a good idea. (It wasn’t.)

1. I've had six dogs over my lifetime, including four at one time.

2. I had to call the parents of one of my students to tell them he was being suspended for bringing a birthday cake to school for one of his friends. It was shaped and decorated like a penis.

3. Two weeks ago, Joanna Volpe gave me a gin based drink at a party and I got so drunk that I walked out in the middle of Cards Against Humanity. The next thing I remember I was laying on my bathroom floor.

4. I have eleven toes. My left foot has an extra baby toe.

Lie: I have eleven toes. My left foot has an extra baby toe.

2. I'm a former president of the Future Farmers of America and raised a 220 lb. pig who I showed off in the local fair.

3. I'm insanely scared of chickens. They're the spawn of Satan.

Mila’s Biography: 

Mila Ferrera lives in New England, where she has a family and a job and does various normal, everyday things, all while plotting novels in her head. She has a passion for writing new adult/adult romance featuring psychological twists and tortured heroes. Her own psychology internship involved plenty of consultation, but alas, no sexy Swedish doctors, which is why she had to make one up. SPIRAL is her first novel ... but it won't be the only one for long.

  1. New adult is the perfect bridge between young adult and adult fiction, which allows it to be a little steamier without being smutty.

  2. I love New Adult because the story lines are similar to YA books that I like, but I love that the stories are a little more mature. Sometimes it is nice to be able to read a love scene that is a little 'hotter' than YA while not being erotica.

  3. I love NA because in real life, there really is a whole separate, confusing, delightful, unique stage, so it's only right that a corresponding book genre exists between YA- and Adult.
