Excerpt:

Her focus was mostly on averting her attention from Robert who made her tingly all over. She didn't want to think about the way she wanted him to wrap his arms around her and hold her, among other things she refused to even consider.  Her legs were curled up under her, her hand was tangled in her hair to keep it off her face as she pretended to read.

“Come on, Ace, tell me you figured it out,” Preston practically pleaded.

Then it clicked. She knew exactly what it meant. One night, when she couldn't sleep she was playing with different types of energy. Tremaine had told her how to combine two totally different spells to form a new. She’d been doing it ever since, and never figured out the significance. It came naturally, but apparently it was an advanced technique.

She tapped her finger on the page and looked into Preston’s cool blue eyes. His hair stood in every direction from the many times he’d dragged his fingers through it.

“It’s not that hard,” she told him. “They want you to combine two different elements to form your own spell.”

“How in the world do you do that?” Preston slumped back in his seat. “That’s impossible.

Liz took a look around the empty diner. Preston’s mother ran the place, and most of the customers were Other, so hopefully she wouldn't scare a nosy human.  She caught her lip between her teeth and dragged Preston’s empty plate over. Drawing two circles on the plate, she created one ring of fire and one ring of arcing electricity.

Robert’s jaw fell open, and then he whispered, “How?”

Her eyes flashed up, but all she saw was amazement on his face.

Preston whispered in awe, “I've only ever seen advanced mages use two elements at once, and never separate at the same time.”

“You need to concentrate fire to one hand and lightning to the other.” Her eyes lifted to Preston’s then Robert’s. “Now watch.” She dragged her fingers toward the middle and the spells merged, expanding as they zapped and sizzled the salt still on the plate.

Preston reached out and touched before she could pull her hands away.

He yelped in pain as he blew on his fingers. “Wow, that’s insane.”

Robert chuckled, but when she met his gaze, he smiled back at her. “Can you teach us?”

She nodded slightly. “Sure. Hold out your hands.”

Preston frowned, but put his hands out. Robert did the same but held his palms upright. “Like Robert,” she told Preston and then held her own out. “Imagine a flickering flame in one palm.”

Robert’s right palm flared to life, while Preston’s left did. “Now concentrate and envision the

electricity dancing in your other hand.”

There was a spark in Robert’s. He gasped and she felt the charge as he moved to put his hands 

closer.

“Wait.” She closed her hands over his palms before he could meld the spells. His magic washed over her and she barely held back a whimper as their gazes locked. Her voice came out breathless. “You want to be outside the first time you do that. It can cause a big blast.”

There was another crackle and Preston jumped. His spells fizzled out as he bounced in his seat. 

“I did it, I really did it.”

Liz yanked her hands back and shoved them under her thighs as her gaze swung to Preston who was beyond excited.

My Review:


Brandy tells epic stories. 

This is no different. I fell in love with this series from book one and have just continued to fall in love with them. I want to live here. You become immersed in the town and in the relationships in the community. Brandy takes us on a journey through the history of these three and it lays out what is inevitable. The trifecta of passion and devotion.

I think I might be the only person who I have talked to that was excited about this new relationship triangle. A lot of fellow bloggers seemed to express how worried they were about a love that goes three ways. For me, it just made sense. It was time to spice things up, so to speak. And spicy it was. WOW! This book has moments that blow you away in how the relationship between Robert, Liz, & Tremaine develops. 

Liz is two very different people in one. She is strong and capable, yet scared and timid in a lot of ways. She holds an innocence about her that is so compelling that you are unable to turn your back on her. Hence why she has two separate men in love with her. I cried for her, more than once.

I could go on and on about Robert, the former lover, who comes back to protect our sweet Liz. And Tramaine, who has helped her heal for so long. Both men are insanely amazing. Both have flaws and vulnerabilities. But both are so perfect for her. They are truly what makes Liz seem even more special than she already is. I love them. I don't want to go into details about them too much, discovering who these characters are on my own, for me, was very important. 

I don't want to give too much away here, but I will say that when you have two men in love with you and both are good and right for you, it only makes sense to explore with both. =) And she does just that. I had a conversation with Brandy, where she expressed that once she brought Tremaine into the story, she had to explore the threeway relationship. I for one, am glad she did. His presence made the story richer, fuller, bolder. It was a perfect addition.

You will be glued to this story. If you loved Edenton before, get ready, because you will see another side of it that makes you feel like you never want to leave. Hey Brandy, can I get Preston's story now? Pretty please with sugar on top????? =)

I give Falling Into Place 5 amazing, sexy as hell, unable to put the damn book down lipsticks!!!!

7 More Questions with the amazing Brandy Rivers
Hi Brandy!  Thank you so much for joining me again for another Q&A session!  



So the juicy stuff first, why the ménage a tois angle in Falling Into Place?  


It wasn't intentional. I’ve had the idea for Robert and Liz for years. I started the story 62 different times, I have the files to prove it. It fell apart a few chapters in, every time. Then I added Tremaine, who was always in it but way in the background. Initially I had planned for it to be more toward platonic, even father figurish, but they had other plans. I got to the shower scene and then there I was, and there was no going back because it just worked. I had to go back and alter a few things toward the beginning to accommodate, but Tremaine being a part of Robert and Liz solved the HUGE block I had.



When you wrote Liz’s character, what did you see for her when you first thought her up?


When I first dreamt up Liz, it was just Robert and Liz. It usually started 20 years or so since she walked out after “killing” his brother and nearly killing Robert when she woke up and thought it was James. She was broken and scarred, and terrified she would kill Robert, so she had left. That never changed. One of my betas was a little lost when I gave her the version without the first part, so I went back and added all of it later, but it was all in my head already. Hell, there’s even more backstory I left out because it wasn't immediately important, but I could have probably written a whole book of their past. If I didn't hate cliffhangers so much, I would have done it. But I knew how the first part was ending, and I didn't want to do that to anyone.

She was always a strong woman, but she has her flaws. She’s been through so much but always picks herself up and trudges on. Nothing keeps her down, she always puts the people she cares about first, and she always blames herself when something goes wrong. I love Liz, her strength and her flaws. She has plenty of them.



When writing do you ever wander into another book and have to come back, or do you keep focused on one story at a time?


Well, with the crazy deadlines I've been giving myself, I've stuck to one book ever since I decided to make In Too Deep ready to publish. However, I do come up with some of my best ideas while writing another book. I just keep documents where I can log notes for future books. You should see what I’m planning for Jamie’s book, but that is all I’ll say for now.



You said that when you brought in Tramaine you had to explore the triangle love.  But what about him made me absolutely essential to the story?


So, the more I explored Tremaine, the more essential he became to the story, and the more I realized that Tremaine was the first good man in Liz’s life. He always had her trust, always did what she needed, no matter what it was. He was the first man to love her for her, but it wasn’t that kind of love when he found her. He’s always been exactly what she needed when she needed it, and as time went on, he started to fall for her every bit as hard as she had started to fall for him. Neither of them could see it until everything fell apart. By the time Robert comes back into the picture, she can’t choose, she just can’t. She would rather walk away from both before doing that, and trust me, she would have if that had been an issue. However, Robert and Tremaine couldn’t live without her at that point either, and really, there’s something between Robert and Tremaine too, and as time goes on that will grow into more. 



Do you have a favorite male character in your stories, or are you like me, and fall in love with them all in every book?


I can honestly say I don’t have one favorite. I do have a few, but I love them all. Some of my favorites, you all haven’t seen yet. They are coming up though. I promise.



You have a new series coming soon….will we see a crossover between the two series?


Oh yeah, there is crossover. You’ll definitely see Fallon and a couple others, though I haven’t decided exactly who yet. Sort of depends where this new direction takes me. However, if Edenton actually showed up on a map, it would be about 45 minutes east of Seattle which is where most of the spinoff takes place.



How do you keep coming up with new ideas?  Every time I think you have to be tapped out, you surprise the hell out of me!


OMG, so I have 12 or so books written that need some serious work. In fact, the one I’m fixing up right now was one I wrote 5 years ago. Trust me, nobody wants to read the old version, but the new version will be up to part with my style and what I’ve learned in those years. I have 4 of the Seattle books written, but they are in bad shape, like really bad shape. I’m doing a full on rewrite for Nights Embrace and pulling in some new ideas and twists while cutting out all the repetitive junk. Trust me, I’ve improved a ton since then. Every time I write a new book I come up with more ideas about who should wind up with who though, so I have a lot more to do in Edenton, and let’s just say Seattle opens up a whole new cast, and it’s just as big or bigger than Edenton.




Thank you Brandy for taking the time to do this interview with me.  I am honored and thrilled every time I get to work with you and read one of your amazing novels!  They just keep getting better and better!
