A LOVE THAT DISTURBS BLITZ

Quote for the week: It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt of it. Abraham Lincoln

We're starting the new week off with an exciting preview of Author Medeia Sharif's latest novel, A LOVE THAT DISTURBS. Now the title demands that I open this book to find out what it means. How about you? Does it arouse your curiosity? Let's see what Medeia has to say.

A LOVE THAT DISTURBS by Medeia Sharif

Evernight Teen, June 17, 2016

Purchase from Amazon (merchant sites will be updated on the author's site)



Maysa Mazari is alarmed by her mother’s talk about arranged marriage. As a hijab-wearing Pakistani-American, she wants to find love on her own. Her judgmental Muslim clique has protected her from racist taunts, although the leader is turning on her as Maysa strays from the group because of her attraction to Haydee.



Haydee Gomez is a former gang member and juvenile detention student. Now living with a clean-cut aunt, she wants to turn her life around, even though one person will never let her forget her roots—Rafe, her abusive pimp. Haydee attempts to pull away from a life of prostitution when she develops feelings for Maysa, although Rafe isn’t willing to give her up too easily.



Finding themselves in danger from Maysa’s friends and Haydee’s pimp, it’s apparent their love disturbs everyone around them as they fight to stay together.

  2. I'm reading this one now as well to review. Pretty heavy stuff! But fascinating as well. I should probably read Lincoln's quote on a daily basis, especially before I start blogging.
