Rule #1 Do NOT ignore the signs.
Rule #2 Pay attention.
Rule #3 The less they know about you, the harder it is for them to hurt you.
Rule #4 Comfort is dangerous. It can be taken away.
Rule #5 Need is a handicap. It can cripple you.
Rule #6 He isn’t what he seems. Don’t trust him.

Simple rules made for a simple purpose. Nina Ryan learned early on in life that if you want to avoid being hurt, you need to be proactive. If you pay attention the Universe will always steer you in the right direction. It will help keep you safe. So, she follows the rules, and she is safe. Until Connor Wright barges his way through all her carefully laid defenses and threatens to destroy the comfortable life she has created. Faithfully following her #1 rule, Nina tries to accept that the Universe has pushed Connor and her lives together for a purpose. Determined to make Nina his, Connor chips away at the walls Nina has placed around her heart and her secrets. Is Nina following the signs that will lead her down the right path, or does Connor hold secrets of his own that will ruin Nina for good? Only the Universe knows.

My Review:

First of all let me start by saying that I'm a HUGE believer in fate and things happening for a reason. So, of course, I absolutely LOVED the concept of this book! Ms. Herrera has put together a very impressive debut novel. It was extremely well written, with enough twists and turns to keep you intrigued and completely captivated. The characters were well developed and very real making them easy to relate to and so lovable. The story flowed smoothly, transitioning from one scene/situation to the next seamlessly. One of my favorite things about reading is the visualization. When the author describes the world they've created so perfectly that the book plays out like a movie in mind, I'm left completely in awe. The suspense build up was intense, I was literally on the edge of my seat wondering what secrets from their pasts Nina and Connor were hiding. And then once the action picked up I couldn't put it down! Sapphire Universe has all the qualities I look for in a novel...humor, romance, drama, action & an AWESOME story line! I would definitely recommend this book and looked forward to reading the next in the series.

Meet the Author:

I am a wife of a U.S Army Soldier and mother of a beautiful little girl. I work for the Wyoming Department of Revenue in Cheyenne Wyoming, and no we don't still ride horses out here. I've been in love with reading since I first discovered the Harry Potter series in 4th grade. I don't just read a good book I devour it. After reading hundreds of novels I finally bit the bullet and sat down to write one of my own. I had an idea in my head and as soon as I started writing, the story seemed to play out right infront of me. Nothing has ever felt so natural. About 10 chapters into it I decided that I was going to take the plunge and get it self published as an Ebook. "Sapphire Universe" is a Contemporary Romance novel for adults, because lets face it, I'm female. Romance is what I like to read so it's what I'm going to write. I'll be posting some teasers and keeping you up to date on my progress as I finish writing and editing. Thank you so much for your support, and I can't wait for you to read "Sapphire Universe."
